    The only show I consistently watch on Adult Swim is Xavier: Renegade Angel. I've been a Pffr fan ever since Wonder Showzen. Xavier is a widely misunderstood show. As much as people hate when someone plays the "you just don't get it" card, some people just don't get it. It is mile-a-minute comedic word play and philosophical and religious references or implications. Unfortunately, the 2nd season ended recently and I'm not sure if another one is planned.

    I haven't seen every show on AS. For example, I've never watched Metalocalypse. Sometime I'll have to check it out. However, I can't stand the unfunny Robot Chicken. I've watched numerous episodes of that and maybe out of 50 attempts at humor, I found one thing to be mildly funny.

    My Favorite Adult Swim:

    Aqua Teen, Sealab, Harvey Birdman, Frisky Dingo, Venture Brothers, Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Superjail.

    Home Movies is good, but to me it's only good for watching while trying to fall asleep. A lot like the show Dr. Katz, same artist I believe, but theres never any real loud or exciting parts. Just a quiet show.

    Stroker and Hoop is pretty good sometimes, I love the intro.

    Robot Chicken is pretty funny, but only for a limited amount of time before it just loses its pizazz.

    The Boondocks I don't remember if that's adult swim or not, but it's a good show too.

    What I haven't mentioned blows ass, I don't like the fags on Tim & Eric show, Tom goes to the mayor is only okay on certain occasions, metalocolypse is only good if you're into that kind of thing, squidbillies some of my friends like but I get bored watching it, xavier is mega retarded, king of the hill isn't adult swim and I hate that show, moral orel is too blasphemis to enjoy, minoriteam is unbelievably stupid, brak show is okay at best, assy mcgee is also stupid.

    Any I didn't mention aren't even worth the effort to type out their names.

    Did you catch the extra non-season episodes of frisky dingo or the spin-off? The Exticals looked like it would've been a good show but I've only seen two episodes.

    If it weren't for the annoying little brother it'd be a much better show :o Or at least if he had a better voice.

    I didn't think Mission Hill was an adult swim product

    your opinion is shitty. Home Movies was awesome, and it was the sole reason for Adult Swim ever existing in the first place. it's not "quiet," but it is a heavily improvised dialogue-driven show. and the outlines are only squiggly during the first season.

    Hey, I like the show, I said that.

    It is a quiet show, I mean this in the way that there are no explosions, people getting stabbed and lawnmowers mowing down people, and jet fighters screaming across the sky dropping bombs etc.

    Aside from whats-his-names band which is sometimes at a higher volume, the whole show is pretty much quiet.

    I don't know how you took that, but it was obviously in the wrong way.

    Dr Katz > Home Movies, but I do like them both.

    I've only seen like, 4 or 5 episodes of stroker and hoop, that intro is completely awesome in every regard.

    Did it end as in no more episodes or waiting for next season?

    all 3 i mentioned had like 13 episodes each

    stroker and mission only had 1 season, and oblongs had 2, none of them are recent cartoons, they varied from 1999 to 2004 or so

    it is sad that they ended like that

    stroker ended with a cliffhanger :wtc:
