    I was watching Cartoon network last night and i got around to thinking that Venture Brothers is one of the best shows I've watched on TV in recent memory. It makes you laugh with its visual humor but it also hits you with its inside joke humor. Just basing a show on the real lives of super heroes and villains in the spy game is hillarious. Throw in the campy Johnny Quest humor and i can't help but think that i love this show.

    So that brings me to the question, what is everyone's top 5 favorite shows on TV currently?

    South Park
    Family Guy
    Venture Bros
    Futurama (yea its reruns but whatever)
    24 (when its the season)

    Blah how can you stomach TGTM? Everytime i watch that show (which is never after the first 2 or 3 episodes but the previews on AS are always on), i feel like i have to take a shower. Im not naturally homophobic but that shows makes me hate gay people.

    What do you think of VB, Dan?

    Really? Is it just because of the married news team, because they're the only gay characters. And I think it's pretty funny how awkward their newscasts are.

    I'm not really a fan. The main reason is a really dumb one, but I think the animation is too good. I just expect my Adult Swim to look like crap and to see anything otherwise just doesn't feel like Adult Swim to me. I do think it's a funny idea for a show, and it occassionally makes me laugh, but I couldn't really say I'm a fan.

    Did you catch Frisky Dingo the other night? It's by the guys who did Sealab. It's okay, kinda hard to tell from one episode, y'know?

    The best thing I've seen on Adult Swim in a long time (aside from Tom!) was the pilot for Lucy, Daughter of the Devil, which they only showed once or twice. It was an interesting idea with a very cool, weird animation style.

    I think it's more the promos. They always show these clips of guys putting their junk on another guys face or licking a hoagie like it was a cock up and down. They try to make the show look gay.


    lol, I think its so different from normal AS shows is because the guys arent normal AS animators. They have usually good storylines though. I think thats the main difference between them and AS shows.

    I started watching it and then i couldnt stop watching it because i wanted to see where the hell they were going with it. It was funny in parts but weird. Exactly like sealab.

    Never saw that one. I want to see Korgoth. They only made that one episode and ive watched it like 7 times.

    BTW, NEW AQUA TEEN THIS WEEK!!!!
