Adult Swim’s Mike Lazzo Doubles Down On Excuses For Why They Hire So Few Female Writers

We've talked a lot about the depressing scarcity of female writers in film and television. Often, we try to give people the benefit of the doubt and talk about the "unconscious bias" that permeates every industry. But sometimes, people's biases are very, very conscious. So conscious, in fact, that they'll display their ignorance willingly and willfully in public.

Exploring the Downside to Living Your Dreams With K.Flay’s “FML” Music Video

Watch: K.Flay's 'FML' Music Video

Adult Swim has, for some time now, a great vector for new music. At least, that’s how it is for me, I guess, because it seems that every time I turn around to check out what’s going on, they’re premiering some new indie artist that I’d never heard of before but inevitably end up liking. […]

Adult Swim Is Reviving Anime FLCL for Two Six-Episode Seasons

But HOW did they revive it? Mouth to mouth?

FLCL, a weird and wonderful anime examination of adolescence (plus robot battles), was short, sweet, and pretty much perfect—despite also being largely and deliberately nonsensical—in its original six-episode run back in 2000/2001. Now, Cartoon Network's Adult Swim is bringing it back for not one but two additional seasons, and I have some very strong, conflicting emotions about it ... kind of like adolescence.
