Aqua Teen Hunger Force Forever

27 Apr

Aqua Teen Hunger Force Forever

As many of our readers know, I am a HUGE Aqua Teen Hunger Force fan.

After C2E2, it seems there is some sad news for fans of the show.

When talking about the new upcoming 11th season of Aqua Teen (which starts June 21 on Adult Swim and will be called ‘Aqua Teen Hunger Force Forever‘), creator Dave Willis announced that this season will be its last.

What a killer blow to my happiness right after my birthday (also this month).

Ugh.

I’ve just always felt like no matter how bad things got in life, or in general, that Aqua Teen would always be there for me. It has always brightened my day, inspired laughter with its insane absurdity, and provided a constant happy place for me in my life.

Maybe I’ve just never had a television show I’ve loved this much come to an end.

But Aqua Teen is definitely that show.

It’s one of my favorite things in the world– right up there with my lovely wife or a big juicy steak.

I do want to posit the possibility that this whole ‘final season’ thing is a joke, since the ATHF guys are always joking about stuff and screwing around (with the show’s title, characters, etc). But Aqua Teen IS Adult Swim’s longest running show (since 2001). Maybe they’ve just decided to hang it up.

More than a few people think that this cancellation/ending is happening because the unaired Aqua Teen episode “Boston” leaked onto YouTube, and Ted Turner previously vowed to cancel the show if that episode ever appeared anywhere. (Does Ted still care about that all these years later? Is he really that much of a jerk?? Maybe.)

Regardless, Turner DID just sign a multi-year contract with Hulu, which means that Aqua Teen episodes will be able to be viewed there (along with Regular Show episodes!) This is a cool development, but of little consolation to me, since it looks quite possible my favorite TV show ever is coming to an end.

A while back, the Aqua Teen guys did promise us a second full-length film (tentatively titled ‘Death Fighter‘) that was to be a sequel to the first ATHF movie (‘Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters‘). So… I don’t know how that’s going to play out. Maybe the intended plot of that movie was worked into this final season..?

If this is really the end, I can only hope that this final season of Aqua Teen Hunger Force (Forever) will be amazing, and let the series go out with a bang.

I’m sure it will.

In every season of Aqua Teen, there are episodes that are duds and episodes that are gems– just like any TV show, or like anything else in life.

And for the record, I have truly loved them all.

We’re psyched (and sad) for the 11th season of Aqua Teen, Aqua Teen Hunger Force Forever, which begins airing June 21 at midnight on Adult Swim.

Comedy Central Fall 2014 Lineup: Brickleberry Season 3, South Park Season 18

14 Aug

BRICKLES3On Tuesday, September 16th at 10:30pm, the original animated series known as Brickleberry will return to Comedy Central.

I’ve found that this show is either loved or hated. There is little in-between. I’ve had die-hard fans of cartoons tell me how awful they think it is, and that I should stop covering it.

But the fact is, I just love Brickleberry too damn much. I wish more haters of it out there would give it a chance.

Centering on a group of bumbling park rangers and also featuring a talking bear cub voiced by Daniel Tosh, I personally find the show to be full of insane, ridiculous and downright hilarious jokes. It pokes fun at dumb rednecks and loose women and general dimwits and everything else that fans of Family Guy or The Simpsons or any other animated show poke fun at.

So, give Brickleberry another try in its third season if you get a chance. Apparently, its ratings are good enough to keep it around, and luckily for fans like me, it shows no sign of slowing down!

**Embedded in this post is the one teaser image we’ve gotten so far from Brickleberry season 3 (the Denzel/Steve bondage one), and below is a picture of Eric the Actor (from Howard Stern) — he has recorded some voice work for an episode this season.**

The week after Brickleberry‘s season 3 premiere, South Park returns to Comedy Central on Wednesday, September 24th at 10pm. This will be South Park‘s 18th season!

The other most recent news for South Park is of course their recent inking of a deal to be exclusively streamed by Hulu, and no longer at SouthParkStudios.com. Pretty crazy.

Not much is known episode-wise for seasons of either Brickleberry OR South Park, and it’s actually amazing I found anything to write about in this article at all (Ha!)

However, as for South Park, you can be assured they will be back with their sharp, witty satire on all of the world’s stupid insanity, all produced in their now-famous week production time! Good stuff.

Don’t miss these two season premieres — 9/16 and 9/24, on Comedy Central!
