[Adult Swim] on Bravo - 11/7/2006 6:36:29 PM

Finally a UK TV channel has picked up a whole host of Adult Swim's shows.

Adult Swim is the late-night segment of Cartoon Network in the US, and as well as screening their own productions, they've also picked up episodes of Family Guy and Futurama amongst others. Their own shows tend to be a little more "edgy" than stuff like Fairly Odd Parents and Dexter's Lab - lots of crude sex references, gratutious violence and (albeit bleeped) foul language.

Bravo are showing the likes of Robot Chicken, The Brak Show, Space Ghost: Coast To Coast, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, The Venture Brothers and Sealab 2021 at around midnight on weeknights.

I'm sure nobody really cares, but I thought I'd mention it anyway on the off-chance that someone else discovers these comedy gems.

Love Robot Chicken.  Noticed Adult Swim last night, anything else decent on it?

Pretty good so far:

Robot Chicken - Very much in the tradition of the Adam and Joe toy parodies and the US strip Twisted Toyfare Theater. So far there's been at least one laugh-out-loud moment per episode.
I loved the Halo Commandos snapping Mario's neck and blowing up Donkey Kong.

Sealab 2021 - (I already own seasons 1-3 on dvd) Great characters. Captain Murphy is the best silver-haired incompetent authority figure since Leslie Nielsen's Frank Drebin. Season 2 gets even better.

Aqua Teen Hunger Force - Growing on me. I hear David Cross does some voice work later on so I'll stick around for that.

Brak Show/Venture Brothers - Both a bit flat, they seem to be too caught up in their off-the-wall concepts and light on actual jokes.

Space Ghost - Haven't managed to stay awake for this yet.

Bought Season 1 of The Venture Bros when I was in the US in the summer on a whim, now I freakin love this show, thought it was slightly odd at first but now I can't imagine it any other way, I must have Season 2. Also want to get Aqua Teen Hunger Force on dvd, they released the movie over now why haven't they brought out the series, why must they always force us to import.
