1130P (EST): David Letterman returns to the Late Show. 1200M (EST): Trigun debuts on the Cartoon Network.
One bone to pick with the Adult Swim lineup, however -- Trigun's here (good), Inuyasha's back (good), but they dropped Lupin III from the schedule to make room for the former. Arrrgh. The Lupin season they're airing has over 150 episodes... so they aired a dozen or so, repeated them, and then pulled it. The hell? Reign is new (unwatchable, but new), so I can understand that sticking around, but can't Home Movies or Cowboy Bebop take a break for a while?
"Let me put it another way. In support of our troops, I recently offered one of my angry correspondents on this issue a bet: I will try my damnedest to keep her son out of combat in the Gulf, and she will continue to support the president's war drive. Whoever keeps her son alive longest, wins." -- Ben Tripp, CounterPunch
Although, I must say, my limited exposure to the Dubbed Trigun left me totally annoyed by Vash's voice. Of course, that was a while ago so maybe I'll get over it now.
Cowboy Beebop can't take a break 'cuz the movie is coming to a theatre somewhere very far away (I bet it'll never get to within an hour of me).
Reign - um, I'd be alright with replacing that. It's just too tough to follow, especially if you miss one episode. And I swear they had YEARS of down-time between two of those episodes, leaving me to wonder if I'd somehow missed even more.

Do you know where your Chainmail, +1 vs. Cruiserweights is?
I can't wait. Apart from "Bebop" and the odd "Gundam" series, nothing rocks harder than Trigun.
I was kinda hoping "Reign" would GO AWAY, since it's gay and I hate it.
As for Home Movies taking a respite--hell they still have to air the end of the third season. Besides, any show that gives us "Starboy and the Captain of Outer Space" deserves a permanent berth on Adult Swim.

I'd say it's HARDLY a "shame". It would've been a shame if he had won and retired undefeated and if people would've tried to put him up there with Marciano, when clearly he was never, EVER, the best fighter even in his own weight class.
