Adult Swim, or Fox 2.0?

When did Adult Swim become the Sunday night Fox lineup? Family Guy, American Dad!, The Cleveland Show, King of the Hill, all syndicated from Fox. When did they stop showing anything new? Sure they have Robot Chicken and Aqua Teen, but when Adult Swim premiered some years ago, it was anime all the time. Escaflone, Full Metal Alchemist, Cowboy Bebop, Sailor Moon and some others that I could only watch at a friend’s house. Hell, Cartoon Network tried to fool me by bringing back Toonami, claiming it was “Back and as good as the original”. Bolderdash! Says I. When I was in elementary school, I raced home to catch the exploits of Goku and his friends; that’s the original Toonami, not this bull shit we have now.

Come to think of it, all if Adult Swim is pretty shit, save for a few programs. Programs like Squidbillies, Robot Chicken, Superjail, Moral Orel, Minoriteam, Metalocalypse, Aqua Something You Know Whatever. And yes, for those of you that are familiar with my Rantings, I do enjoy King of the Hill. However, I am only listing the Adult Swim programming.

They do run the “Toonami” that they have now, but its not the original Toonami, but rather some idiot’s idea that if they show the same crap Fox had three years ago, then the rest of the world will enjoy it. However, I do not know any single person who actually enjoys One Piece, or the Thundercats abortion.  Yet it is still in the air. Not to mention that [AS] is acquiring the rights to run Bob’s Burgers…if Cartoon Network is that hard up for money, then just admit that Fox owns them. It would certainly clear up this blogger’s mind.

Adult Swim has tried to lure us in with Loiter Squad, but I never got that show. Frisky Dingo, Lucy, Daughter of the Devil, Your Pretty Face is Going To Hell, none of it. One show I did get, and loved was Perfect Hair Forever! That show was, admittedly stupid, but they never took it past season one; that and Minoriteam. Minoriteam was insanely racist, but it was meant to satire the stigma, not incite riots. Hell, the White Shadow ruled everything, and The Corporate Ladder was meant to keep everyone down; what other show had an evil character the likes of Standardized Test? I will settle for the same bullshit from them if they agree to put Moral Orel back on with Minoriteam on Sunday nights. Just once a week is all I’m asking.
