Currently it's InuYasha, but if they ever put Outlaw Star back on, I might change my answer.

I saw a few more episodes of InuYasha, and it's really starting to grow on me. It's weird because I usually don't like anime that much at all, but this seems to be the exception. My vote remains Family Guy though.

Yeah, sure those are shows SHOWN on Adult Swim...but they're basically animes and canned american network comedys. Why not the shows made for Adult Swim including Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Sealab 2021, The Brak Show (now cancelled), Harvey Birdman etc. etc. IMO those are the shows that MAKE Adult Swim what it is, the rest is filler (though very entertaining filler none the less).

Im kinda biased because it's what I'm watching these days, But Cowboy BeBop. As for the Williams Street stuff. I used to like Space Ghost: CTC, but they don't make many any more. I used to really like Aqua Teen Hunger Force, But it's not the same any more (like a stroke victem's personality). I used to really like Sea-Lab but it's just to "Zany" now. I think Williams street realised their core audience is High so they didn't really have to work all that hard at that thin strand of coherency that the shows used to have.

My favorite has to be Home Movies. The pace of the show is pretty leisurely. It sounds like the voice actors are actually arguing, debating and conversing at their own pace, and it just adds another dimension to the show.

Aqua Teen Hunger Force, or Sealab? Either one is good, that's all I really watch on Adult Swim besides Futurama or Family Guy...

...and I refuse to believe those shows ever had coherency.

That's the Retroscripting(tm) kicking in. They just have an outline of a scene (along with some suggested jokes probably) and they record an improv for the show. They've been using it less recently, but it definitely has that distinct feel to it.

Home Movies is my favorite of that list.  Cowboy Bebop is really good as well.  You can keep the rest.

I really like the random humor of The Brak Show and Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Unbridled by such unecessary concepts as "plot" to hold down the randomness (this is why I don't like Family Guy more), these shows always make me laugh.

When I'm looking for plot, I'll stick with Futurama.  smile

For comedy, I'll go with Futurama, (natch), Home Movies, Mission Hill, and ATHF. For anime, I'll go with Cowboy Bebop, FLCL, and Trigun (when it's on AS).

Home Movies and Bebop!

As for the Williams Street stuff, it was all funny for a while, but Brak and Sealab haven't been doin' it for me lately. Aqua Teen Hunger Force, which was my least favorite in the beginning, has been the only consistent laugh-getter for me.

I'm definitely a big fan of the original 5 episodes of Home Movies, with Squigglevision, Retroscripting and Paula Poundstone as Paula Small. But to me those aspects were what made the show what it was (although Janine Dutillo was still a pretty good substitute for Poundstone, I'll admit). Once they converted fron Squigglevision to Flash and Retroscripting to, um, half-scripting, to me it just lost a lot of its charm. You still get some good dialogue now and again but without the improvised conversational aspect it feels a lot less unique of a show.

 As for my fave Adult Swim show, Aqua Teen Hunger Force wins by a good length. I love the fact that a show about a milkshake, a box of fries and a meatball having wacky suburban adventures even made it on television. And Master Shake is one of TV's best jerkwads, ever.  wink

I have a question about Futurama episodes on Cartoon Network. I've noticed that the episodes are seperated into two acts (instead of 3) and that original act breaks aren't used. So, are the episodes cut at all or are they just compressed?
Sorry if this has already been asked...

No, AS shows all of Futurama episodes. It just so happens, that in other countries, television shows only have two breaks in them instead of three. So what you're watching is the same show that Europeans watch.

CN shows fewer commercials per half hour than FOX, so they don't need as many breaks.  They fill the extra time with those black and white cards and lots of promos.

I thought it would be to blend with some of the AS shows. Inuyasha and Cowboy Bebop, being anime, naturally splits their episodes in two acts.

I choose Cowboy Bebop and Family Guy.

I really like Home Movies. Its not on Cartoon Network in the UK anymore. Not that I know of anyway. But when it was on I watched quite a few eps, I enjoy it. But I find theres some eps I just cant get into. My mind wanders and I just switch it off half way though because I've lost my interest in it. Some eps dont have that attention grabbing quality to them. Yet others have me laughing for ages. Its not one of my fave shows, but its cool to watch every now and then  smile

and the Charlie and the Choclate factory parody, which plotwise, was not as good as Slurm Factory, but musically, it was better:
"Chumba Wumba gobeldy goo,
Life isn't fair, it's sad but it's true,
Chumba Wumba gobeldy gee,
When your poor legs are stiff as a tree.
What do your doo when you're stuck in a chair?
Finding it hard to go up and down stairs?
What do you think of the one you cal god?
Isn't his absence slighty odd?
Maybe he's forgotten you."
and
"Take a drink, and you'll sink,
to a state of pure inebriation,
you'll be tanked,
like the whole irish nation."

*bump*

[Adult Swim] is finally getting a bunch of new shows for next season, so they can take out the filler crap like the Ripping Friends and The Oblongs.

Anyway, ATHF is my current favorite. I used to not like it because it made no sense, but it really has grown on me... because it makes no sense. I don't know if they're making Spacecataz, but I was really looking forward to that. Also, Squidbillies could be good, if they do it right.
