Title: I loathe Ted Turner and his spawn....
Post by: Thom_Serveaux on March 31, 2007, 10:25:02 PM
Affectionately known as 'Williams Street'  I swear, practically any holiday, no matter how obscure or lame, is fodder to royally screw with the schedule.  Oh yeah, and by all means, make no effort to alert the loyal fanbase with any advertising of any kind whatsoever.  I mean, it was nice to see Spirited Away, Again...  and I gues that I didn't mind too much seeing Teen Titans: Trouble In Tokyo, ...AGAIN!  But Come on!!! to replace the entire rest of Saturday night's Adult Swim lineup with a recurring (at least 3 times so far) marathon of nothing but Perfect Hair Forever?!? Especially when you consider that since day one, Adult Swim has had this artificial rift between it's Saturday Late Night  'Action Block', and its' Sunday Late Night 'Comedy Block', (at least for the sake of ratings,) so in which case, this little 'holiday marathon' shouldn't have even taken place until the start of Sunday Late Night, since April Fool's Day is Sunday, not Saturday.... (and the first one to theorize that this is just a big April Fool's prank is going to get kneed in the groin..)

btw, I've never stuck around for more than like 5 seconds when PHF has been o, so can anyone tel me if that whole 'bad tracking' thing on screen is deliberate?

Umm... it's [adult swim]. A (sub) network built on being goofy. On a holiday during which you're supposed to be goofy. And you're annoyed that they're being goofy.

Also, I'm going to have to go with the Lisa Simpson argument here: They've given you hundreds of hours of free entertainment. How do they owe you anything-regular schedule, continuing to air the shows you like, etc? If anything, you owe them.

A wise man once said these words of wisdom:

"It's just a show - I should really just relax."

You kidding!? They showed a brand new Perfect Hair Forever instead of the usual Anime drivel. Tonight rocked! The bad subtitles were a nice touch too, and yes, the distortion was added as part of the April Fools prank. :^)

Ahhhh... Sh*t. Man. I am conflicted.

Listen. Pak is right and he knows his sh*t when it comes to the WS AS blocks.

But still... What the f*ck are they doing?

And yet still... In regards to Shark and Smith... We should really just relax. After all, we are Msties. We are made out of Titanium Nitride covered in Carbon nanotubes after the Sci-Fi days.

Bring it on, corporate network a*sholes. You are way past getting us down.

You should have heard the "hilarity" that ensued when Panasonic introduced its line of "Palm Theater" line of portable DVD players...
