What Sunday Night Was Meant For
Praise the Lord one of the programming executives at Cartoon Network grew a brain. They decided to put defunct mature-themed shows and a few original short shows on Sunday Nights to attract a more adult audience ("Adult Swim" rules!!!). Even though the audience is probably teenage boys and college-aged males, that executive is a bonifide genius.

Anywoo, with that out of the way, my favorite show on "Adult Swim" is "Home Movies". With quick wit, distorted animation, hilarious voice-overs, and warped storylines, you have a classic on your hands. Even though this show never made it on primetime television, it was and still is laugh out loud funny. I love the premise of an eight-year old having a digital video camera so he can make crappy and/or strange films so he can cope with life around him. My two favorite characters are Brendan and Coach McGuirk and their relationship is the best aspect of the show. I also like the crazy plots that make this show great. Where else will you see an eight-year old kid make a really strange film and present it to his class when he should done a report on Susan B. Anthony? Anyway, this show is one of the ten best all time and it is one of the best shows currently on Sunday nights (if I said it was, I would be dragging the name of the greatest show all time through the mud). I give this show an A+.

PS: Other great Adult Swim shows are: Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Harvey Birdman, Sealab 2021, Mission Hill (if they ever replay it), Cowboy Bebop (also in my top ten) Avoid these: The Oblongs (too nasty), The Ripping Friends (sorry John K.), The Brak Show (too stupid), Space Ghost Coast to Coast (lame premise that needs to be retired)

One more thing: "Home Movies" is far superior to "South Park" because these eight-year old aren't as foul-mouthed, cocky or lame. Sorry Trey and Matt.
