Hey Shaun - here's what I would say:

First off: It's funny. Like the mid 90s Simpsons. If you liked the classic Simpsons episode where they went to Itchy and Scratchy Island - then you'll think it's funny.
The premise is like Doctor Who meets Back to the Future - (Rick and Morty were born out of a parody of "Doc and Morty" from Back to the Future).
But I think the Doctor Who comparison is more apt - Rick is like the Doctor in that he's a brilliant scientist who takes Morty with him on "adventures".
But the brilliance of the show - and the beauty ? - is the philosophical question of "If you're the smartest guy in the universe and you know that nothing really matters cuz there are infinite universes out there what is the point of feeling close to other humans. Nothing matters and you (Rick) are the only person who understands this - but it means you can't feel true happiness".
Honestly, the show is deep - give it time.
