WMG: [adult swim]

[adult swim] takes the piss on anime fans because they're still hurt about The Big O Season 3 not being bankrolled.
The most horrifying part is that Tim & Eric are the tomatoes.

The execs at Adult Swim really want to know what anime fans like about anime...
And so they periodically make shows that have animesque subject matter and are clearly not in the Animation Age Ghetto, but are also clearly Western Animation. They want to find out exactly what fans of anime like other than the country of origin.

[adult swim] is responsible for the downfall of Cartoon Network.
Think about it: without Adult Swim, the Mooninite Bomb Scare would have never happened, and Jim Sample would have never had to step down as the head of Cartoon Network.

To be more precise, Aqua Teen is to blame. Space Ghost: Coast to Coast could also be why the channel went downhill. Without it, [adult swim] would never exist. Aqua Teen is also a direct spin-off of SGC 2 C.

The problem here is what are you blaming the downfall on? What a lot of people forget is that Sample set up a lot of the patterns Snyder continued. The only reason people hammer Snyder is because it was the things you liked that got the axe. Sample banished older shows from the network two times in his term long before Snyder would do it, shamelessly putting over the new stuff and letting the door hit the old on the way out. If you were a fan of the cartoon cartoons a lot more then the mid generation or the current gen (Adventure Time, etc) then okay that's your stance, but people can blame Sample for the exact same thing except just substituting one group of cartoons for another.

And on the other point, the parties that would become Adult Swim started off in early phases in Cartoon Network's history. So would we be blaming the fact they just lost their way over time and blame something as the tipping point? Except if you never liked Space Ghost: Coast to Coast or the cartoon cartoons, say they never had it in the first place?

I'd say Cartoon Network in general is to "blame" for everything it got itself into because no matter where we as individuals started dislking the state of their network (if you ever did), most of their decisions are explained as being desperate to stroke their own back or hide from the truth. And that applies to both the parent network just as much as Adult Swim and Boomerang. All cut from the same cloth and bound by the same mistakes, and probably will be until the day it dies.

It would take a lot of money to help make new bumps each week, just for late Saturday nights/early Sunday mornings, and according to a leaked schedule for May 26 by TV Guide (most guides have TBA in the three empty slots). With much of the schedule looping for the next three hours (except for the FLCL and Bleach switch at 2AM/5AM).

Knowing [adult swim], they're milking it for all it's worth. When in the last few years has [adult swim] ever cared about anime fans in the last few years?
