Start off with a poll: Favorite Adult Swim show?

(I'm not considering anime shows part of Adult Swim, even though blocks of anime often play in those time slots; thinking more of original programming and some of the other far out stuff they show.)

What's the weirdest thing you've seen on Adult Swim? That's a tough one. They must pass around some special drugs to the peeps who work there in Atlanta.

Aqua Teen and Tom Goes to the Mayor are both pretty... out there.

HOME MOVIES! I can't quite pick a favorite episode, but I do love "Guitarmageddon" and the one where Brenden tries to convince the gang to shoot a movie backwards, "Memento" style.

Oh how I love Adult Swim. Aqua Teen, Home Movies, Robot Chicken, Family Guy, Futurama...and of course...Sealab (RIP Captain Murphy)

I really get a kick out of all of 'em, but "The Venture Bros." edges out the others slightly as my personal favorite.

Anyone seen the "Aqua Teen" movie? I've heard good and bad.

Truly one of the oddest movies ever. Some truly inspired parts too. Good for fans and for stoners - not sure about other people.

I loved Home Movies, too - I wish they were still making new ones (or are they?) I remember when it was first on TV, it was on UPN the first time around and I feel like I was one of 6 people who were watching it. Love having Paula Poundstone voice a cartoon, too.

Is there no love for Sealab?


I'll say it again for emphasis then.


I love Sealab 2021.

Sealab is genius, no doubt about it. I keep forgetting to watch it, though. When is it airing these days? Can always rent it here, I guess.

I never catch it on television anymore so I'm not sure. The first two seasons are the best though, if you do rent it. After the voice of Captain Murphy died it just isn't the same.


If you look at the Adult Swim website it might tell you. And the games are fun.

Sealab was taken off the scheduling after they canceled it with the end of season 4. It shows up every once in a while, but that's the way it is with Adult Swim. If you don't have a Tivo (and how on Earth can you poor, poor people even consider what you do to a television watching without one?) you're more or less screwed.

The same guys (and some of the voice talent) went on to do Frisky Dingo, but it's not nearly as good or inspired. It's currently running... uh... sometime (I never know when shows are on, Tivo knows for me) leading up to the premiere of season two on the 26th.

I didn't watch TV until I got a DVR. Before that the box was just for DVD's and video games.

well when I was living in a dorm way way back in 2002 the guy in the next room was a friend of mine and he got me into it.

Sometimes I randomly say to my friends when eating out "theres always room for pudding". usually they have no clue wtf im talking about but as long as its funny to me I can handle the strange looks that I get.

oh but my favorite ep that Ive seen is definitely the one where they are pirating cable and it causes sealab to explode creating dopplegangers and some kind of time rift.

That is one of the funniest things that Ive ever seen.

I do that too. I say "it's never a bad time for pudding" because I don't remember the exact quote. Or "pudding can't fill the emptiness inside of me, but it will help!"



The doppleganger episode is by far one of the best. Or the stimultacs one, or the "uh oh" one...nevermind..they're all great.

Now I want pudding. I always thought it would be wonderful if they could make pudding that tasted exactly like raw cake batter.

that might be quite horrible for you as far as calories and fat and such but you could do it.
