Random Topics - Adult Swim

Adult Swim is the late night programming block for Cartoon Network, started in September 2001. Effectively considered a separate network for ratings purposes, its primary demographic is late teens and older. Programming is split between original shows from Williams Street, reruns of Fox animated sitcoms like Family Guy, and dubbed anime with minimal editing geared towards an older audience. Most of the original shows are surrealistic, involving parody, dead baby, and absurdist humor. Adult Swim is also known for its often self-deprecating and cynical commercial bumpers, usually mocking feedback they get from fans or taking shots at their own shows and creative staff.

1 I too remember the good old days of '01. Now every new show they've put out in the past 6 years or so is nothing but juvenile dreck even juveniles would get bored with, and the old shows that used to be genuinely clever are just as bad. It's become unwatchable for me now. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 14, 2010, 10:18 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I watch it every night. I even watch the shows I don't like, and yes, there are many. I don't like 90% of Anime, but I have watched it, too. It never has yet boned, and I doubt, for me, it ever will. Thank God for Adult Swim. -- Submitted By: (Shiddy_Smell) on April 4, 2010, 6:22 pm - (-4 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I hate to say it since Adult Swim has provided so much entertainment and laughter for me for years, but in the past few years virtually all of their new shows have been weak, poorly animated and laughless in large extent. The only exceptions I can think of are Moral Orel and Venture Brothers and MO is cancelled and VB can't really be described as a "new" show anymore. Drinky Crow, Tim and Eric, Fat Guy, Devil's Daughter, Assy McGee, Superjail, Minoriteam, Xavier, Saul of the Mole Men, Squidbillies, Metalocalypse, and many others of recent vintage seem to subscribe to the "if its gross, it's funny" ehtos, and for me, it's not. Not much subtlety or wit involved in these shows. And the over reliance on old chestnuts (reruns) of Family Guy and Aqua Teen is a mistake too. At some point, everyone is going to tire of them and then where will they be? I also echo the feelings of other fans who bemoan the live action emphasis. Shouldn't those shows be on Comedy Central (if aired anywhere)? -- Submitted By: (BaronCathode) on December 3, 2009, 6:41 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Still some good shows here and there (like Robot Chicken), but most of the rest... total, utter, junk, and I do not get how people can watch it. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on December 3, 2009, 5:44 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
