    I've got yet another trailer, this one from the creator of Community and the guy who voices Lemongrab:

    That is probably the most "mainstream" advertising I've seen from Adult Swim.

    This trailer sold me on the show moreso than the other previews and I'm shallow for it, but using Debaser by the Pixies really helped push me over.

    And now it looks like Adult Swim posted the entire pilot on YouTube. I'm still watching it as of writing.

    So, I just finished it. It's certainly leaps and bounds above the standard AS pilot and it might be another reason to tune into Adult Swim outside of Toonami (which is pretty rare nowadays).

    I found Rick's dialogue kind of annoying, though. Did the actor try to improvise his lines and consistently fail? He kept stumbling over his own words very frequently and it got on my nerves.

    Given that the character is meant to be a crazy drunk, it's almost certainly done on purpose.

    The design reminds me of another show but I can't place it.

    If there's another show that uses squiggles for pupils, I can't think of one.
