Solar opposites is boring, its one of these ok but kinda completely characterless shows. The wall though. I want more. And i think i know why. Its just edgy joke after edgy joke like rick and morty, and due to that all Characters are replacable. The wall is kind of an island of characterdevelopment in that.

I think the sub plot with "The Wall" was a genius decision, Justin Roland definitely has a brighter future in adult animation. If there's one thing id take away from this, it's that this whole underlining sub plots within them selves shouldn't consume and become the shows entirety. Solar Opposites is a great show and can compared to Rick and Morty's popularity, I believe, in the future. And lets be honest, there has to be a cross over where Yumulak and Terry meet Rick and Morty and that would throw bucket of oil onto spinning gears.

Dude, try increasing your volume for the clips you play instead of making it so quiet that you then come out booming across the speakers... or decrease the volume for your voice, to the point where you go silent... I literally couldn't hear anything from Solar Opposites then you are practically shouting out of my speakers.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Solar Opposites. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Solar Opposites truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Justin Roiland's genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them. And yes, by the way, i DO have a Solar Opposites tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid 😎

The show is LITERALLY called “SOLAR OPPOSITES “ Wtf did you think that meant ?! 🤨 if rick & morty spends most of their time in space dealing with syfy shit .🙄😒 I never even thought to compare them .., y’all go into something wanting to hate it soooo bad . . The only thing the same is the voice actors .’

Rick and Morty is based on the premise that rick is a nihilistic genius with a grandson and with Solar Opposites the premise is that they although intelligent but also naive aliens.

I find myself rolling my eyes a lot at Solar Opposites. There are good jokes/moments/episodes, but I mainly can't look past the sheer number of times that it feels like B material from Justin doing improvised lines for Rick and Morty that Dan would've cut because they're just not funny enough.

First off let me just say, really nice editing, bro. Seriously, very impressive, how you matched up your dialogue with the animation. Kudos! As for the show, the way I see it is, Korvo is just another Rick, in another dimension, who made different choices, before meeting Beth's mom, in his dimension. Not only am I okay with it, but, even if I'm wrong, I love the concept, and watch it as if that's the case.

If they decide to make crossover episode i think should just be rick talking with them for a very shoot time with them, squinting a while, then saying something like “I don’t like these guys” then killing them. of course solar opposites will keep going on with the whole “multiverse” thing and them being able to do what ever the fuck they want without consequence

Yeah, Solar Opposits is actually a really great start for an animated TV show. I think the characters are great, the style is different than anything else, but it also has a lot of potential for the future. And the C plot with the wall is simply genius and I can totally see it as a the best part of this seriea in the future with much more episodes dedicated to it and maybe even some interactions between the two worlds :)

I love Solar Opposites, and this was a great video! Would love to see more videos on Solar Opposites going further in depth, but would also love to see more videos on past shows that have been discussed, but never really followed up on, like say Final Space. You guys hyped it up, but then there wasn't too much discussion on the actual episodes or characters. An in depth look at the characters could be really fun to watch, as I love your content.
