I figure a catch-all for Adult Swim topics is in order now that our lives have been changed with the release of Metalocalypse.
Damn did that pilot kick ***, Dethklok RULES! Brendon Small of Home Movies fame really brought the heat with that one, I don't think there was a single moment where I wasn't blown away by how awesome that was - the jokes were hilarious, the parodies of metalheads were spot-on, and most stuff that makes fun of metal does it with crappy music but this was kick ***. I've already watched it twice on tape and once on Adult Swim Fix, I can't get stuff like:
"Skwisgaar Skwigelf - taller than a tree! Toki Wartooth - not a bumblebee! WILLIAM MURDERFACE, MURDERFACE, MURDERFACE! Pickles, the drummer - doodeley doo, ding dong doodeley doodeley doo! Nathan Explosion!"
"So you're telling me you put these little guys in boiling water and they shriek and they turn red and they die? That is the most metal thing I ever heard in my whole life! High five!"
and Hetfield & Kirk Hammett as the 2 wounded Dethklok fans, and Mark Hamill as the senator. And a million other great things.
I only wish the 2nd ep that was on Fix last night was anywhere near as good, Dethwater started great and had a few funny bits but was mostly flat like a lot of other Adult Swim lately.
Venture Bros has been uneven but funny lately, especially: IGNORE ME!!!
