Tenken347 Knackwurst Since: 27.2.03 From: Parts Unknown Since last post: 3 days Last activity: 1 hour # 3 Posted on 25.5.03 2048.23 Actually, they've been advertising for at least a week, maybe longer. Plain white text on black background, they've been on during the commercial break for every episode of Family Guy this week.

MUCH better than the old swimming pool clips. "Still here?" "That's cool." "[Adult Swim]" Plus, all the shows were HILARIOUS, especially Home Movies. And I'm glad they told us that The Brak Show will be BACK NEW IN OCTOBER!! 13 NEW EPISODES, BAYBEE!!! Life. Is. Good.

ICQ: # 5 Posted on 26.5.03 0139.07 Yeah, those ads were surprisingly good. And they've replaced the original bumpers, as well... kinds funny how they said they "should probably order more episodes [of The Oblongs]. Maybe." As for the lineup, kinda wish they had more Family Guy, but the Oblongs could probably grow on me. It still goes without saying that Harvey Birdman/ATHF/Sealab Fucking Own, of course.

tomvejada Andouille Since: 2.1.02 Since last post: 5294 days Last activity: 5294 days # 6 Posted on 26.5.03 0635.03 Birdman was the usual hilarious. Peanut and Phil Sebben are hilarious. "My Lucky Mug!" ATHF was funny, too. And the new bumpers do rule. Fun Fact: The first Adult Swim theme song was used as background music in those Los Guerreros vignettes.

I also will admit that I don't dig Home Movies usually, but the first 5 minutes were amazingly hilarious. In fact, the entire episode was tremendous. I love Harvey Birdman, but it kinda sucked last night. Sealab was decent, but Space Ghost was awful. The Hurricane main eventing a Raw show? See, the WWE is listening to the 'Net. Well, they're listening to me anyways. Look for the next push to go to Molly.

ICQ: # 8 Posted on 26.5.03 1411.23 BOOO! Space Ghost was awful??? That was one of the better episodes. Course I first saw that episode when I smoked pot... Come on, any episode that features Space Ghost pulling armbands out of his ass is worth some praise. (edited by Pool-Boy on 26.5.03 1211) Still on the Shelf #9

Did they take Family Guy off the air or just move it to a new time slot? One groom... two grooms? But he... he... uh, I need my medication!
OlFuzzyBastard Knackwurst Since: 28.4.02 From: Pittsburgh, PA Since last post: 285 days Last activity: 262 days # 10 Posted on 26.5.03 1431.53 So far as I can tell, it's just off Sundays for the time-being. EDIT: And was that a DVD announcement I caught last night?! Was it legit? Is it just "Space Ghost" or will we see one for all the "Williams Street" shows? (edited by OlFuzzyBastard on 26.5.03 1535)
tomvejada Andouille Since: 2.1.02 Since last post: 5294 days Last activity: 5294 days # 11 Posted on 26.5.03 1728.47 A Space Ghost DVD is slated for the fall. Also, the next new episode of Home Movies will be in the fall. (edited by tomvejada on 26.5.03 1529) "Oh my God, Brian, there's a message in my Alphabits! It says, 'Oooooo!'"

ScreamingHeadGuy Frankfurter Since: 1.2.02 From: Appleton, WI Since last post: 1969 days Last activity: 1969 days # 13 Posted on 26.5.03 2257.26 I think getting Futurama and Family Guy off Sunday is a good idea. Four times a week is enough, or else the series will start to wear-out its welcome (like would happen if we had to see repeats many times over). As for the commercials, I don't like 'em. Sure, I'm glad the old folks swimming are gone, but these commercials seem longer and almost like they're making fun of the viewer by being too smarmy. Eh, whatever.

Yeah, but I liked those Futurama commercials where the voice says real quickly "SundayMondayTuesdayWednesdayThursday." I'm going to miss those. Working through my unemployment.

Bebop is now on five times a week, and with a 1/3 of the episodes of Family Guy! Quoting Miyazaki, teasing new Oblongs eps (maybe Ferrel thinks of it as a pet project and wants it back?), the giant advisory label... Good stuff. Oh yeah, and the death of the Toonami style openings. Finally signifying that the two blocks aren't at all related in target audience was a good idea. 11/04/02 Bastard of the Day (Still waiting for the Hyatte/Scotsman Feud)

Might as well bump up this thread since there are new episodes of Birdman, ATHF, and Sealab tonight. Speaking of Adult Swim, tonight's Futurama episode was very good. To show how much Fox cares about it, before the show, the announcer said "Coming Up, a new episode of Futurama", then they cut to Homer Simpson saying, "D'OH, I mean Woohoo!" "Oh my God, Brian, there's a message in my Alphabits! It says, 'Oooooo!'" Peter Griffin "Peter, those are Cheerios." Brian
