Solar Opposites is an American animated sitcom created by Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan for Hulu, originally for the Fox Broadcasting Company.

On June 18, 2020, Hulu renewed the series for a third season.[1]

Plot

A team of four aliens escape their exploding homeworld only to crash land into a move-in ready home in suburban America. They are evenly split on whether Earth is awful or awesome. Korvo (Justin Roiland) and Yumyulack (Sean Giambrone) only see the pollution, crass consumerism, and human frailty while Terry (Thomas Middleditch) and Jesse (Mary Mack) love humans and all their TV, junk food and fun stuff. Their mission: protect the Pupa, a living super computer that will one day evolve into its true form, consume them, and terraform the Earth.

Theme Intro

In each theme intro of each episode (except "Terry and Korvo Steal a Bear" and "The Unlikely Demise of Terry's Favorite Shot Glass"), Korvo says a different line, and Terry wears a different shirt, in a formula similar to The Simpsons' couch gags.

Korvo: Planet Shlorp was a perfect utopia, until the asteroid hit.
One hundred adults and their replicants were issued a Pupa and escaped into,
uh, the space, searching for new homes on uninhabited worlds.
We crashed on Earth, stranding us on an already overpopulated planet.
That's right, I've been talking this whole time.
I'm the one holding the Pupa.
My name's Korvo.
This is-this is my show.
I just dropped the Pupa.
Do you see me?
(stammers) This is ridiculous.
I hate Earth.
It's a horrible home.
People are stupid. (This line does not show up in the intros for "The Matter Transfer Array" and "The Apple Pencil Pro")

"The Matter Transfer Array"
And one of these days I'm just gonna blow it up and just be done with the whole stupid thing, I swear to God.

"The Unstable Grey Hole"
I don't understand why people have so many outfit choices.
Wh-when you can just wear a thick, coarse robe.
It's the perfect garment, boots and a robe, easy.

"The Quantum Ring"
They're always talking about how they love their family, but they're never making their family gigantic.
They're all normal-sized.
If you like something you should be trying to make it gigantic.

"The Booster Manifold"
Everyone claims to like old people, but they're not fucking them.
I fuck old people all the time, they love me.

"The Lavatic Reactor"
The second you point out Christ was an alien, they get all wound up and start yelling at you.
Even though he did a bunch of alien stuff.
Get with it.
It's-It's no big duh.

"The P.A.T.R.I.C.I.A. Device"
Why do they make so many languages?
Why didn't they just get together and figure out one language, so when I go to a Mexican restaurant I can just order "Cheese Tube", and not have someone roll their eyes at me?

"Retrace-Your-Step-Alizer"
Where the fuck are all the dinosaurs?
What did they do to all the dinosaurs?

"The Sacred Non-Repeating Number"
They're always thirsty.
But they don't drink their own piss, I don't get it.
Just drink your own piss.

"The Earth Eraser"
Some animals are pets, but they-- They eat animals,
and other animals they don't eat, and they train them to play basketball
like Air Bud Dog.
How come you can't just eat any animal?

"The Lake House Device"
Why are they all so excited about keeping themselves alive?
Don't they know that when you die you come back stronger
and with an earthier flavor?

"The Emergency Urbanizer"
I don't understand why people like daylight so much.
It's so loud when it hits your skin.

"The Rad Awesome Terrific Ray"
They're always arguing about politics.
Everyone is so busy arguing about politics,
but no one is ever talking about how the Earth is an egg.
Why aren't they talking about that?

"The Apple Pencil Pro"
People are stupid and confusing.
Do they like Brendan Fraser or not?
He's a good guy.
Give him a chance.

"The Solar Opposites Almost Get An Xbox"
They love having robots do their jobs,
but they don't create a system of universal income
so they can have money after the robots take their jobs.
It makes no sense!
