As Rick and Morty fans start to calm down from their szechuan sauce-fuelled rage-high, the co-creator of the show Justin Roiland has delivered a truth bomb to his Twitter followers.

 

You should listen to your friend Justin Roiland. He's right. Nirvanna The Band The Show really is the best thing on TV right now and not enough of you are watching it.

Okay, so you have my attention - what's it about? 

Think of it as Nathan For You meets The Monkees. 

Two hapless lifelong best friends and roommates Matthew Johnson and Jay McCarrol play caricatures of themselves living in Toronto. Matt is the singer and Jay is the piano player - together they are Nirvanna The Band. They engage in a series of complex publicity stunts and deceitful tactics in a bid to make Nirvanna The Band popular enough to land a gig at local venue The Rivoli. Every effort fails spectacularly, largely due to the fact the band have never written a song.

The show combines scripted scenarios and candid camera moments as the 'band' interact with real-life people while seeking to create the greatest musical act in the history of the modern world.

How do I watch it?

Good news - it's streaming right now at SBS On Demand:
