    Anybody else out there watching Adult Swim Sunday nights on the Cartoon Network? There is some fall-down funny stuff going on there, especially Harvey Birdman: Attorney At Law, Seabase 2021, and, the classic Space Ghost: Coast to Coast.
    Seabase has been KILLING me!
    Long live the Adrien Barbeaubots!
    Todd.

    And after missing the late, lamented DR. KATZ from Comedy Central for so long, I was thrilled to discover HOME MOVIES!

    Harvey Birdman has not been on the past few weeks but Thank God Space Ghost is coming out with new episodes

    Why?
    Why do you keep hounding me and harassing me and hounding me?
    It's not like I don't have anything better to do, you know.
    It's not like the Phantom Cruiser is going to wax itself.
    It's not like last night's burrito stain will just up and remove itself from my cape.
    I am a superhero!
    A very very busy superhero! Who does...things!
    Now get out of here before I tell your mother.
    AND DON'T TRAMPLE MY BEGONIAS!

    Cowboy Bebop still comes on after Space Ghost.
    The last Aqua Teen Hunger Force with the Moonites was hilarious. I have to say, though, that right now Seabase 2021 is killing me with funny.

    I love Adult Swim and have since the first night.
    Cowboy Bebop is great. I'm happy that I got to see the show before spending any cash on it.
    All of the new original shows are hilarious. I'm happy that CN is being this risky, especially since it worked out so well. If only AS was on more often.
    Harvey Birdman was hilarious in the first episode, and I have questioned the meaning of Johnny Quest since then.
    Home Movies is OK, but its no substitute for Dr. Katz.

    I waited a long time for Adult Swim and it has yet to dissapoint. Sealab and Brak are the funniest new shows, but Home Movies, Birdman, and Aqua Teen Hunger Force are pretty good too.

    If there was ever a TV show that deserved a DVD treatment, it would be Sealab. I say we start a petition and beg CN to start releasing the seasons on DVD after the second season.

    Space Ghost has been getting great guests lately... Bjork and Thom York in one night, with Bjork doing the music. And Rammstein doing the music this week. Brilliant. And that bizarre murder mystery one with the ringing phone and the ticking clock with those bizarre sentences across the bottom of the screen. Pure genius.

    Damn, damn, damn looks like no upcoming Harvey Birdman episodes. I heard the next one featured Shaggy getting busted for possession of weed. I really want to see that!

    Shaggy busted for weed would be GREAT!!!
    Cartoon Network should keep all of the AS shows on since they are all great. Maybe they could also pick a better timeslot, but then again, theres a good reason why its on Thursday and Sunday nights.

    My wife and I love BRAK!!! So far we've tuned in for every episode. They're great! The one where Zorak gets rid of Brak's "best pal" Hippo is hilarious!
    Harvey Birdman is also sweet. The one where Apache Chief sues over burning his "lap" is wonderful.

    Sealab kills me!
    "Did you know that the average fish has more mercury than a rectal thermometer?"
    "Uh, yeah, I think I read that somewhere-"
    "Would you eat a rectical thermometer?"
    "Uh, no..."
    "I would.... Ah mercury, sweetest of the transitional metals..."
    I loved it so much I changed my sig!

    That was the first episode of Sealab. Funny, funny show.
    What happened to Harvey Birdman? I would prefer that over Home Movies.

    I dunno what happened to Harvey. I Agree about Home Movies. It gives me a couple of chuckles but nothing like the others.

    I actually liked Home Movies, but it's not the same kind of show as the stuff that airs in the second hour of Adult Swim. Last week, there was a Home Movies featuring a Franz Kafka musical which was pretty funny.

    Home Movies started weak but has gotten much better. Space Ghost is great of course, being the pioneer, but Aqua Teen Hunger Force is HILARIOUS. The Brak Show is what I had the highest hopes for, but has been the biggest disappointment, I think.
    I worry that the repeats are overtaking the new episodes, but Tenacious D is supposed to be on Space Ghost next week, so that could be a classic.
