Roiland's co-creator on the series Dan Harmon has talked about the ways they pivoted from the original idea into the version now seen on Adult Swim. The second season (which I discussed with Harmon and Roiland) has been a treat, particularly “Total Rickall,” a very different kind of spoof of sitcom clip show episodes.
