WORDS FROM THE HERO
Aiight, So ADULT SWIM
IN A BOX? = hmmmm. Dope
IN GENERAL = DOPENESS
So now that we got that clear I just want to use this platform to address a few things. The 1st is that ADULT SWIM lost alot of respect / cool points / views from the fact that "KING OF THE HILL" was added to the lineup. To be honest, tho I am a huge fan of "FAMILY GUY" I was nearly as disappointed when it was added because the show is already A GIANT BEAST and doesn't really need to the type of exposure that I thought ADULT SWIM was about. Tho, I do understand the reasoning behind the family guy decision. I am at A total loss when it comes to king of the hill. To be perfectly honest, I have not come across one single even slightly good opinion towards the show being on ADULT SWIM.
The original programing they have is PURE GENIUS. Tho, I am more prone to stick glued to the T.V. when I turn on ADULT SWIM and see something I don't recognize. I 1st learned of the show "BLEACH" via ADULT SWIM, As well as "CODE GEASS" and "EUREKA SEVEN" and I can say to my readers with extreme cocky confidence that if ANYONE was to WATCH any and all of these shows they would be added to that persons "BEST SHOWS EVER WATCHED" Category.
Those are just A fragment of the dopeness that ADULT SWIM has brought to the AMERICAN LATE NIGHT VIEWING AUDIENCE and BEYOND.
I also would like to address the MUSIC you hear on ADULT SWIM.
Huh? What Music you ask. You know damn well what music I am talking about if your channel is ever fixated on ADULT SWIM for longer than an HOUR you WILL hear some dope music...
I just came across this dope site called:

Do you like Adult Swim?
Do you like boxes?
Well my friend, I have something to show you!
In 2001, Cartoon Network created a new block of programming on Sunday and Thursday nights geared toward an adult audience. This was the birth of Adult Swim, which has grown from a four hour block of programming two nights a week to its own network that shares the channel with Cartoon Network. In late 2003, Adult Swim started to release DVDs of their original programming with Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Vol. 1 and Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Vol. 1. Each of the different series has garnered a string of releases over the years, and the most popular have been collected in a new release called Adult Swim in a Box. This new release collects six DVD collections from across the Adult Swim lineup in a boxed set for all the fans.
This set contains: season two of Sealab 2021, season one of Metalocalypse, season two of Robot Chicken, season three of Space Ghost Coast to Coast, season one of Moral Oral, volume two of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and an extra disc with five pilots: The Best of Totally for Teens, Cheyenne Cinnamon and the Fantabulous Unicorn of Sugar Town Candy Fudge, Korgoroth of Barbaria, Perfect Hair Forever, and Welcome to Eltingville. Adult Swim in a Box has some of the most popular series of Adult Swim to date.
