Remember when this channel used to air comedy shows?

It's all absurdist bullshit now, and they're rolling out a new set of shows that are even more surreal than the stuff they air now.

They're even airing a couple shows that are live-action. WTF?

I never minded the anime, they've always done that, but why have they shifted from animated comedies ("Home Movies") and shift to insane shit that saps your IQ as you watch ("Squidbillies," "Superjail").

It's not all absurdist bullshit. It's just that the absurdist bullshit takes three minutes and three dollars to produce, while stuff like the Venture Brothers or Metalocalypse takes a lot of time.

Home Movies was brilliant, though, without a doubt.

It stopped showing all the actual funny shows?

I agree... Home Movies was the shit. Coach McGuirk was my favorite. I have the entire series on DVD.

I <3 Home Movies.

I don't get the Squidbillies crap or anything of that ilk. They are pretty much wasting airtime.

They need a channel with all the old school Adult Swim shows and old school cartoons like Transformers, XMen, Thundercats, GI Joe, etc. I would never change the channel.

They are going to run Korgoth of Barbaria this summer. Venture Bros will be back next year. I agree with you on the shows that arent animated. I dont know how much pot I would have to smoke before I could enjoy Saul & the Moleman. I do know that I probably couldnt afford it.

Ahhh yes. We also need ESPN 8, MTV 3, 4, & 5, and I'm still waiting for the All Infomercial Channel.

I've been saying that for years. An all-80's channel, featuring 80's cartoons in the morning and 80's sitcoms in the afternoon and early evening would be fantastic and could actually get a nice audience at this point.

If I had enough money I would finance this channel, I have faith that it would be very popular.

They are going to run Korgoth of Barbaria this summer. Awesome!

I loved the first episode.



Anyone ever see 12 oz. Mouse? That's about as bad as it gets.

Sealab was great until the guy who did the voice for Captain died. It wasn't the same for me after that.

There are some great episodes though. One of my favorites is the one where they're in the dark the whole time because the generator was turned off. "Uhhhh, he died, because he was an IDIOT"

Sounds like some of you guys don't like it, but I think Tim and Eric Awesome Show Good Job is hilarious. They have Bob Odenkirk, John C. Reilly, and other people from Mr. Show every now and then. Its just two guys with weird ideas and and editing machine.

No guest appearances could possibly save this abomination..... and honestly, I really did give it a chance. But I swear, it looks to me like they locked those two in a room and said "Don't come out till you have the most obnoxious ADD-inducing garbage you can think of... and don't worry about whether it's funny, these pothead idiots will watch anything.....
