    I would complain about the lack of British shows and anime, but that's a pretty minor thing to bring up when they don't even have any original Adult Swim shows from beyond 2007. AS has produced dozens of original programs since then, and they aren't showcasing any of them. As I mentioned in the CN thread, I know that they're starting small and trying to build an audience, sort of like what they did with the similarly disappointing Teletoon Retro launch, but they really need to try a little harder. These content offerings are pathetic; we need something NEW.

    Oh well, at least we have the amazing website, which honestly has more replay value than the actual block will in its current form.

    In the words of David Lynch, this launch line up is "a sadness." Seriously, it's mostly if not all content that anyone who would want this network has, frankly, either bought or pirated, and worse still, they manage to even three-peat some the content on the weekends. This is a bad joke of a line up purely on the basis that they have more than enough original and in house content to flesh this block out a lot more. They don't have to buy one anime to run, and they could atleast ditch the three-peat weekends by adding the Boondocks, Loiter Squad, Super Jail, China Il and countless other series. Plus, that's not digging into the stuff they've done and finished like Frisky Dingo, The Brak Show and so on. It's a really boring, calculated line up. The lack of action is just the lack of icing on this stale cake.

    They needed a much gutsier start than this.

    Lack of Deadman Wonderland, Full Metal Alchemist, and Casshern Sins is disappointing. I hope Canada gets Toonami or some action block.

    At least they're getting Sym-Bionic Titan, Young Justice and Green Lantern in prime time on weekends.

    The weekday schedule is good looking to me but the weekend schedule reaks of simply not trying.

    They might have to buy The Boondocks from Sony actually. I forget how those rights pan out.

    Yeah, Sony will definitely have to get involved with Boondocks. But you'd think that starting an Adult Swim channel would involve a deal that allows much more open access to Williams Street properties. Day-and-date premieres should be exactly what they're shooting for here, but it seems like a pipedream right now. How long are we going to have to wait for Black Dynamite?

    To air the anime programming, AS Canada would most likely have to deal directly with the local NA licensors.

    Indeed the Sunday line-up should look a lot closer to the US one with brand new Aqua Teen and Metalocalypse right now along with Black Dynamite and new Squidbillies later in the month.

    Though wouldn't it be better if those were actually on Teletoon at Night? That would be in more homes right?

    It would be in more homes, but at the moment, they need to justify people buying a more expensive tier in their cable package to support this new network, and this line up provides very little incentive to do so. Teletoon At Night is a pretty stable, though somewhat dull block. Yes, fresh AS content would liven Teletoon at Night up, but it's not worth throwing their new netwokr under the bus for that, and until it's in a lot of home CN/AS Canada need to make the best possible cases for themselves, maybe even at the cost of Teletoon's security.
