I mean, who really likes Ed, Edd, and Eddy anyways?


*raises hand*


Yes. Thats right. Me.

Says alot about my maturity, doesn't it.

I do enjoy watching Justice Leauge and Teen Titans on that network.

And several other shows that I'd rather not mention*.

so i've been seeing these new shows on adult swim, like venture brothers, squidbillies, tom goes to the mayor, and that japanime show with the character named milk (I kid you not, the main character's name is MILK!) and I'm extremely underwhelmed by these new shows. adult swim's magic  seems to be dwindling down, these new shows are relying on dull, hackneyed comedy that only gets me irritated. and ive been noticing that ATHF and Sealab seem to be going thru a bit of staleness as well. am I the only one noticing this or am I just nuts? is adult swim losing it's awesomeness?

No, I hear ya. I don't have a lot of love for the new additions, especially Milk Chan, either. I think that the 30minute run time hurts them. Milk could be quirky and fun in smaller doses, but is just painful as it is.

The latest run of ATHF that just finished its run was pretty good, though, I thought. The 2 new Sealab episodes seem a bit spotty (as I write while watching it), but that's what I've always thought about the show.

In all honesty, I want more Harvey Birdman. It's like a thinking-man's fart joke-a-thon.  :)

I'm in agreement over some of these new shows as well. I've yet to get into the Venture Bros., and Super Milk aggrevates me if only because I hate anything that even so much as looks anime.

I'm holding out hope on Tom Goes to the Mayor. There are too many talented people associated with it to not be funny! No clue what to think about Squidbillys, I thought the Spaceghost talkshow one of them was on with Meatwad a few weeks ago was funny as hell, but Adult Swim seems a little hesitant to put it on regularly.

I didn't care for last weeks Sealab, but really dug this weeks with the debut of Sharko. Sealab and Aqua Teens continues to be the reason I tune in to Adult Swim. That said, I'm totally with Jared in wanting more Birdman!

Just to tie this in with my town and collecting, the Admin for our local kick ass collector's site, ASWCC, also happens to be an animator on Harvey Birdman.  He got us some sneak peaks of Clone Wars cartoon stuff early on. Shhhhhh.

I worked on some crap movie with one of the ATHF creators, but that don't mean a whole lot.  Just another thing to add!

I used to. I'm too busy now to actually watch it, but even when I did it was for Family Guy.

Which brings me to a gripe, is anyone else really POed at the recent influx of Family Guy stuff into the mainstream? A few shirts and stuff are fine, but when you see people, who clearly don't get it or have no idea what Family Guy is, wearing a Stewie T-Shirt don't you die a little on the inside?
It's just like what happend to Invader Zim, every idiot and their brother started to like it because it suddenly became cool! I MISS THE UNDERGROUND DAYS!  >:(

Ahhh, Invader Zim. Did you pick up the DVD's containing those few last unaired episodes on them? It was nice to replace my downloaded .avi files of those last episodes. Jhonen Vasquez is a genius, and that show was phenomenal, but it just didn't belong on Nick. I'm still not sure how it got picked up by Nick at all... let's see, a new animated cartoon from the creator of "Johnny the Homicidal Maniac? Yeah, I'm sure the kids will love it, and it will fit right in with the rest of our programming"... wtf were they thinking. That show should have been on Cartoon Network, it would have fit in nicely with the Adult Swim stuff.

Speaking of which, I'm really digging The Venture Brothers and the Super Milk Chan Show, but I've already got thos SMCS episodes on DVD so I usually don't bother to watch it. But The Venture Brothers is fast becoming my favorite AS show. The last few eps of ATHF I wasn't really impressed with. The newest eps of SeaLab are just downright boring and unfunny. I'm not impressed with this new show Tom Goes to the Mayor - I haven't really found it funny yet, but like Jamie said threre are just too many funny talented people working on it for it not to get better.

I laughed my ass off last night at Sealab. "My dad put his human penis in my mom's shark vagina."

I remeber him from the talk show. Man I seriously almost cried.

I don't understand Tom Goes To the Mayor, but some of the stuff on the venture bros is hillarious!

I think "Tom Goes to the Mayor" has some promise.

But I also think too many viewings of "Super Milk Chan" will induce bleeding from the ears.

OK, went to an adult swim panel last night, which was part of a Museum of Television & Radio festival being held this month in LA. Seth Green, Tim Heidecker, Matt Maiellaro, Matt Senreich, Eric Wareheim, Dave Willis, and their EP Keith Crofford (who moderated) presented new Robot Chicken and Tom Goes to the Mayor episodes, and a old ATHF episode, held a two hour discussion about the shows, and opened up the questions to the audience.

It was great fun and offered up a lot of insight into why some of their shows are so successful. They look to be really allowed to make what they want.

Someone in the audience asked about Venture Bros. The response was... it isn't confirmed for renewal, at least not yet. They're letting it run another cycle to see how it performs. "Write letters," Keith commented.

The big news:

Aqua Teen Hunger Force: The Movie is due in December for theatrical release. Expect an origin story combined with the typical randomness factor, and about 1 minute worth of MC Chris character material.

YES! I have been very impatiently waiting for second half of season 4. Just wondering if the second half will be as good as the first half of the season. Pinstripes and Poltergeists was my favorite episode of the season so far.

I saw that the other day, and I'm definitely looking forward to more Team Venture as well.

I quit watching adult swim years ago.  No longer palatable.  Don't really care for piss poor animation and crude subject manner I guess.  I've just been sticking to the Fox stuff on Sundays and Futurama on Comedy Central when I have a chance to catch it.

I like Venture Brothers, but also like Metalocalypse, FullMetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and Ghost in the Shell.
