    lmao :)

    Indeed - I watch the show every night on Adult Swim.

    While it was first on - years ago, I 'never' watched...I just didn't 'get it'.

    I still watch it, but for me, it's probably the least consistent show on Adult Swim. For every good joke there's 10 absolute stinkers.

    But, I don't have a favorite episode. My favorite character is the greased-up deaf guy. :D

    For the record, I think right now Harvey Birdman and Tom Goes to the Mayor are the best things on Adult Swim.

    Hmmm.

    Harvey Birdman is spotty for me. Some episodes are alright. But I'm not sure there's every been a great episode. Though to this day I still say "not there! there! not there! there!" all the time. (bonus question: do you remember who said that to who and why?)

    I don't think I much like Tom Goes at all, though I admit I haven't given it as many chances as Harvey.




    As for Family Guy, it's a damn funny show. I don't know about a favorite episode, but one of my favorite moments was when Peter rigged the whole house to lift up the roof and make it look like the house was talking.

    I like the episodes when they have little side things like, "This is almost as bad as that time I forgot how to sit down..."

    Then it flashes-back to him launching himself face-first into a chair...

    :lol:

    Well, it's understandable. When you don't have to get up until 9:00 for a 50 minute class, it's easier to stay up than if you have to work all day, then come home to a wife and kids, etc.

    Birdman and Tom are only on Sunday, unless you have On Demand. Birdman's on at 11:45, Tom is on at 1:30.

    The first season was better than the one that's on now. The one where Shaggy and Scooby-Doo got arrested for possession of pot was amazing, as was the one where Fred Flintstone was a mafia don.

    My friends and I say that a lot, too! I know Phil Ken Sebben says it, but I can't remember who he says it to or why.

    Tom Goes is weird. I know way more people that hate it than like it. The animation style threw me off for the first couple episodes, but you get used to it. I guess the whole thing is really deadpan, in a way. It's lame, but it's supposed to be lame. I also like really quiet, awkward comedy (see also, The Office and Curb Your Enthusiasm).

    Any Stella fans here? The show was amazing, but their online shorts were a little better, I think, too bad only about half of them are still online.

    If that's Harvey's boss' name, than you are correct!

    He says it to Harvey after calling him into his office and telling him to have a seat.

    When Harvey sits down in the chair, he says that.

    Because of his eyepatch he can't tell where Birdman is (or maybe he's messing with him....).

    In the end Birdman is sitting on the endtable, right next to the chair.
