So, I've noticed a lot of Adult Swim fans. Which current show is your favorite? Besides the one ALL of us love. You know, the one coming in January.  big grin

Note: These are the Sunday shows only. I MIGHT do a poll on the Saturday shows.

Ripping Friends. I saw that show when I was in canada on Telatoon {there Cartoon Network}.

It's made by the same people who did Ren and Stimpy.

"Mission Hill" all the way, babe. "Harvey Birdman" at a close second. And, for whatever reason, my circle of friends was absoultely fanatic about the first season of "Sealab 2021".

"Home Movies" is okay, but I really don't see the point to it a lot of times. It's more funny-bizarre than funny-ha-ha.

They show Mission Hill there?. Here in Latin America they used to showed it at the WB but they stop showing it. I liked it but I didn't like the animation. Wasn't that show created by Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein?

Yeah, it's the same show. "Adult Swim" picks up prime-time cartoons that got unfairly dropped. "Mission Hill" is perhaps the best of these, and the animation is wierd, but it doesn't bother me that much anymore.

I like Home Movies, even if the characters and coloring look even worse than South Park. The show's still funny though.
NOTE: Not that South Park is bad, it's just got under-average character animation.

Definitely Home Movies.  It makes me laugh so hard I cry.  But I like the Oblongs and Mission Hill too.  Harvvey Birdman is okay, but Brak and Space Ghost get annoying in my opinion.

God, I feel like the only person on this board that doesn't care for "Home Movies". To me, the episodes have been entirely hit-or-miss, and the quality seems to have gone down some ever since they moved to Flash animation.

I agree, the quality has kind of gone down since the move to Flash. I thought they were improving--the latter half of season two was funny as crap. But the most recent batch of new episodes were disappointing(they only showed like three new episodes though. Hopefully Brendan can rebound once again).

I still love the show though. It's a little over-written, but they still have some good improvey moments like back in the squiggle-vision days. And the characters still mostly rock. I wish they'd get Mitch Hedburg to guest star some more, he is hysterical.

I love Mission Hill, too. It makes me sad that I never watched it when it came on the WB. I don't remember any commercials for it...The Oblongs were everywhere--why didn't Mission Hill get any promotional push? I am tempted to rate it as my favorite show. But there are too few episodes. I'll vote Home Movies if only for the fact that I can still look forward to new adventures.

I voted for sealab, but it's probably tied with home movies. I wish they'd show more new episodes.

ones I hate with a passion: the oblongs (why oh why do they show it so much?), baby blues

Never saw the Oblongs, and it looks like I won't anytime soon, with all these negative comments about it. It sure does seem to be on a lot, though.

And what about the lack of episodes of "Harvey Birdman" and "Aqua Teen Hunger Force"? There's less than 15 of those combined! The outrage.

Finally caught the premire of "The Ripping Friends (Uncut)" and all I have to say is "What the hell?!"

Its Ren and Stimpy influences were incredibly obvious. But whereas R&S worked great for small bits of time, the fact that TRF(U) was a full length show really, really hurt it. In fact, it got so bad at times that I wondered why I even liked R&S to begin with. It was that strange. Like "The Oblongs" strange.
Plus, the majority of the dialogue sucked balls and the series is totally reliant on the look of the 4 characters. There wasn't any 'laugh-out loud' moment from what I saw, and that's saying something.

3 out of 10.

Ok, "The Ripping Friends" isn't as good as "Crank Yankers", but, then again, what is?  evil laugh

(I am aware that Crank Yankers could, perhaps, be one of the worst shows ever made by anyone)

I like most of the ASC shows. The Ripping Friends is mediocre to bad. I don't like The Oblongs, and The Brak Show is just plain not funny.

And yes, how dare you discriminate against ASA!! I like Cowboy Bebop and Yu Yu Hakusho, and I love Inuyasha.

as I'm in the UK, we've hardly seen any of these shows, but a new channel started today called CNX (Cartoon Network Extreme) which looks like it could become the UK equivilant of Adult Swim - here's hoping ...

Looks like CNX WILL be showing some Adult Swim shows, including Sealab, Harvey Birdman, the Aqua-Teens, and Brak... not to mention Space Ghost and Cowboy Bebop every weekday night.

Cowboy Bebop every weekday night! Wow...that'd take 5 weeks to run the entire series.

So far, CNX sounds cool. Too bad that I won't get it. Good thing is that, in the States, I get to see all these shows anyway.

Hey Evan, you pay attention to this kinda stuff.

I've heard that CN is trying to get Cowboy Bebop (  smile ) renewed, and that they've succeeded in doing that with Outlaw Star (  puke .)  Do you know anything about this?

"The Big O"! I loved the two episodes of that I saw. So wierd and gothic was the architecture.

"Cowboy Bebop" can't be renewed, cuz the show wraps itself up rather nicely in its 26 episodes. That's what anime is like -- two 13 ep. seasons, thank you, good night. Bebop is still on CN on Sat. at 11 pm for us (Central Time)I think. Since I bought the DVD collection, I watch it when I remember and kind of forget othertimes....I know it used to be part of the original AS at Sun @ midnight...now, they move around ASA so much I'm not sure when it's on.

If you're still interested in new stuff, check out Cowboy Bebop: Knockin' on Heaven's Door, the full length movie. It should be available soon on DVD or I'm sure you can downlo---er, find it. (   smile ) It takes place between ep 23 (Brain Scratch) and ep 24 (Hard Luck Woman).
