Truthfully, all of the new shows mentioned are boring.

Nothing to say.
Only thing of interest to me is Superjail. I hope it's as good and creative as the pilot.

So Adult Swim ramps up the sarcasm and doesn't deliver any substance? Dare I say- Typical?
It'll be interesting to see if Brule can be funny without Tim and Eric holding him down. My hopes aren't high though.
Mighty Boosh, huh?
I admit I missed that show when it was on BBC America, but I've heard a good thing or two about it.
So we're getting more Britcoms on the Swim, it looks like. Guess Darkplace wasn't as big a bomb as we thought.
I'm really looking forward to the Dr. Brule spinoff. Those are always highlights of Tim and Eric Awesome Show and John C. Reilly is fantastic at improv. It's hard to believe that an Academy Award-nominated actor would end up doing a show on Adult Swim. Since Talladega Nights, it seems like he's really been reinventing himself as more of a comedic actor, which I don't mind.
Also, the Superjail pilot was one of the most creative, well-animated things on AS in a while, so that'll be something to watch also.
Since when did Adult Swim become the premiere place for BBC comedies? Admittedly, BBC comedies are usually brilliant, amusing things, but I'm still wondering what is going on in Lazzo's head to pick 'em up considering Darkplace bombed worse than most anime.
I wonder if BBC comedies will be anime's replacement if anime is gonzo.

The ASHQ Wiki comedy page has been updated accordingly. I invite anyone with info on The Mighty Boosh to go to town.
Anyone else think that Look Around You will end up becoming a cult hit when it airs on AS.
I saw the "Sulpher" episode at Anime Hell at Animazement, and it was a huge hit with the audience.

On the topic of the new FMA show...
Fullmetal was [as]'s highest rated anime yet if they do plan to air the new series they need to wrap up the other one by airing the movie.
Craig's Day 2 report is now up, covering the Aqua Teen Hunger Force/Squidbillies panel and the Venture Bros panel.
lol, at the "sequel" planned for the Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie in 2011.
Now, I am in no way affiliated with [adult swim]. And if you took note of it, some of my comments in that report are indeed critical. I'm a fan and a critic (which is actually kinda redundant to say, now that I think about it, but I digress).
But I never thought I would have to "defend" [as] because of the comment I made about the panel being "satiric" and it appearing that they did nothing but spoof fantasy fan panels the entire time, so allow me to clarify a few things since my focus of the panel coverage was for news. I had intended to do a more detailed article so fans who couldn't attend would get a better idea how entertaining the panel was.
[adult swim] doesn't have to come to Dragon*Con. It's a decently-attended con, but it was founded as a very genre-specific fantasy-themed con and that's still what largely fills up the programming schedule. And more than half the dealers' room is nothing but fantasy-related product.
However, Williams Street is so close to the convention center that they could practically fling their poo from the [as] offices and hit the Hyatt. And [as] is well aware their programming is popular with Dragon*Con attendees. Hell, they didn't have a an exhibitor booth or even a product table set up to sell crap like all the other industry panels. And they didn't charge $25 for autographs or force you to buy something in order to get an autograph or a photo. The only reason [as] shows up at Dragon*Con is FOR THE FANS.
And while I wish they'd have had more free swag to give away, they did at least give a T-shirt to anyone who asked a question at the panel. And it didn't matter what question you asked either. The audience picked right up on the joke and a lot of the dragon-themed questions they came up with were clever and amusing. (And I didn't hear even one person say, "I'd like to speak for all of us here..." that's said at every @#%ing convention panel.)
And did you not even notice how many exclusive clips were shown? That's like their entire programming lineup for the next 6 months.
Dragon*Con is nothing like the huge media event that follows such cons as the San Diego Comic-Con or the Wizard World cons. [as] doesn't come there for the media coverage, so for them to premiere anything at the con is not exactly in their best interests except among fandom. And the internet was largely buzzless regarding the goings-on at the con, except maybe for specific fan forums.
[as] didn't have to show over a dozen exclusive clips just for Dragon*Con, and with the exception of the BBC shows they were all "first looks" too. They also didn't have to make exclusive Dragon*Con t-shirts either (now granted, they are a really crappy design, but you have to keep in mind what they were spoofing).
It was a really imaginitive and funny idea for [as] to do as an entire panel (and it was Lazzo's idea too, mind you). And they ALL participated too... well, except for fuddy-duddy Keith Crofford, but since he was serving as panel moderator we'll cut him some slack.
And the audience "got it." The fans loved it--ate it up like greasy, tasteless con food.
You weren't there and it's obvious from your comment that you didn't "get it." If you've ever been to any previous [as] convention appearance--whether you're a diehard fan or not, their panels are ALWAYS entertaining.
In short, the sarcasm WAS the substance. Seriously, dude. Have you not ever read the [as] bumps? I would expect nothing less from them. And in fact, they outdid themselves this year. And I look forward to them making their "Dragon Panel" an annual event from here on.
To clarify, that means the character probably won't return, not that Chris won't be reprising the role if the character does appear again.MC Chris will probably not return as MC Pee Pants
Willis explained that they had pretty much milked the comedy dry out of Pee Pants, him basically being a one-joke character anyway.
yay for Drinky Crow airing earlier
I haven't decided my verdict on the British Invasion yet...
So wait, is Xavier Season 2 and the History Guide Series still going to air this Fall?
Sweet for new ATHF Movie! Not so sweet for new Squidbillies eps
I'm disappointed that there doesn't seem to be anything about another Boondocks season.
Other than that pretty cool. I'm really curious as to what they're gonna do with FMA.
The world's 225 richest people now have a combined wealth of $1 trillion. That's equal to the combined annual income of the world's 2.5 billion poorest people.
Something to think about.
Hey, does anyone know how many eps of ATHF were ordered? They obviously ordered at least 4 since there are 4 unaired eps that are on the Vol.6 DVD. It's probably 10, but currious if there's more or not
