When Adult Swim
first launched, it was a bunch of pretty inexpensive Williams Street
shows. Now, look how it's evolved now. They're aquiring comedy series that have aired on other networks and will be making some more original comedy series.
Think the same thing about AS Action. This is the first step. Maybe CN wanted to launch the block right away, so they took some older shows and added in some new ones. Eventually, "Outlaw Star
" and "Tenchi" will be gone and will make room for some newer, less edited shows. "Pilot Candidate" was already announced last year and was already edited for Toonami
. So, CN took "PC" and put it on Adult Swim Action, in addition to some older Toonami shows.
Don't be so pessimistic. Sure, I was a little upset but at least we are getting these shows on television in the first place. Be happy that Cartoon Network
is doing this. Rome wasn't built overnight.
