“Rick and Morty: Seasons 1 – 4” Box Set Blu-ray Review and Digital Code Giveaway
While fans wait for season 5 to be released, they can rewatch all of the episodes and enjoy extra content through the Rick and Morty Seasons 1 to 4 Box Set Blu-ray release from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. This home release includes a poster. We are also giving away a Digital Code!
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of Rick and Morty Seasons 1 to 4 Box Set Blu-ray for review. The opinions I have shared are my own.
Created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, Rick and Morty debuted on Adult Swim back in December of 2013. Since then, the sci-fi comedy show has been able to garner a passionate fandom. The fourth season premiered on November 20, 2019. With the finale airing on May 31, 2020, fans are waiting for the show’s fifth season. A total of 41 episodes have aired and you can own all of them in the Rick and Morty Seasons 1 to 4 Box Set Blu-ray release.
You can read my in-depth review of the season 4 Blu-ray release here.
To be honest, if you’re yet to buy the four seasons of Rick and Morty, this release is a good deal. It is priced to own at $79.99 SRP for the DVD ($89.99 in Canada) and $89.99 SRP for the Blu-ray ($99.99 in Canada), which includes a Digital Copy (the U.S. only).
However, if you already purchased the standalone home releases, the current collection doesn’t offer anything new except for the limited-time poster and different disc art.
The visual presentation is what you would expect from WBHE offerings, with everything appearing bright and crisp (1080p. Aspect Ratio of 1.78:1). I encountered no issues with the audio (English 5.1 Dolby TrueHD).
