ATHF

Postby matthewsturm » Tue Mar 15, 2005 4:22 pm

Anyone love the Aqua Teens as much as me? I think they are pretty keen. If I were able I'd sing a Brak-like song about how much I love the aqua teens. Should you feel the same way, you should say "hey"!

Frankly, I resent that this is what my Williams Street boys are doing instead of Space Ghost.

I still enjoy it immensely, but C2C (at its best) is just so much better.

Yeah, but C2C seemed like it was losing it toward the end there. To me, anyway.
There are some new C2C mp3s on the website; not the same, I know, but it's a fix.

At first, I hated ATHF, thought it was the dumbest, crappiest show ever. At some point when there was nothing to watch, I gave it another shot.
It's grown on me.

I must say I dig the Mooninites way more than the spiky, vaguely-Eastern-European-accent aliens. And Drippy is just plain Icky.

Some months ago I watched a local band somehow work the theme song into one of their songs without missing a beat. It was pretty cool.

I love it. love it. the moonites are definately my favorite.

I've only seen it on dvd a couple times. my brother introduced me. no cable, so my fixes are few and far between.

It just kept getting progressively more bizarre. And more ballsy. The last episodes are some of my favorites. By the way, the 1997 season is coming out on DVD soon, which is the first really good season as for as I'm concerned. So excited.

The mp3s on the adult swim website are just the theme songs, aren't they?

Best clip from the home companion:
Pavement. Seriously, the Aqua Teens could never be that cool.

I never saw space ghost, so I can't compare.

my friend and i, last time she was home from college, had a hardcore Aqua Teen Hunger Force marathon. it was amazing, but beware, marathons sometimes cause shows to lose their zeal. like when dilbert was made into a cartoon show. it just didn't have quite the same umph as each individual. i recommend the dvds, but be cautious of having a hardcore marathon. you really have to be up to it.

anyone who started to like athf less after watching a "hardcore athf marathon" isn't really that much of a fan.

and space ghost has NEVER been better than aqua teen, unless it's that one ep where there's a gas leak.

Agreed. I find ATHF more consistently funny. Space Ghost gave me a few giggles, but ATHF really makes me laugh.

I always thought Space Ghost was better. The timing was brilliant. The idea was more inovative, too.

Keep in mind than in dchrisworld C2C is to television what Harvey Danger is to music. Namely, the kind of fandom that is probably unhealthy, but damn--it feels good.

And Yarn's right on. It never was especially about getting lots of laughter; that's too easy. It was about being innovative and weird and entirely dialogue-driven and confusing. Actually, that description is pretty accurate for the kind of stuff that SeaLab's doing now, isn't it?

Which is why Sealab is probably my favorite Adult Swim cartoon.

That, and Brak, baby.

I wouldn't limit to just SeaLab. I think all of the original Adult Swim programming (ATHF, SeaLab, Brak Show). It (was) is all off-the-wall storylines that under a normal constrent of half an hour would blow chunks, is well executed for it's 15 minute segments. Each is unique for what they're offering, and none of them really ever lets me down.

Oh Sea Lab. Oh sweet sweet Sea Lab. How I miss thee cable. How I love thee DVD sets. Oh Sea Lab. That's what TV was made for.

Aj, you can rent ATHF (and many other fine cartoon series) at Tower Records for a DOLLAR for three days!

To those of you who dislike the Aqua Teens, Oh...yeah...well... Dracula called and he's coming over tonight for you and I said ok.

Sigh.

I don't dislike the Aqua Teens. I love the Aqua Teens. I watch it all the time, and I have the DVDs. I just like some other show better.

Then it doesn't apply to you.
