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.

Endearing Awful People: Or, How I Accidentally Fell in Love with Rick and Morty

Rick and Morty is, eight times in ten, a black-hearted grotesquery with more interest in its odd, world-hopping scenarios than building any kind of warm and fuzzy feelings. And after 11 episodes, I am more invested in its world and characters than any adult comedy of the last few years. In fact, it might be Adult Swim’s best program since the indomitable Venture Bros.

Watch the Banned Dexter’s Laboratory Episode “Rude Removal”

For years there have been rumors of an episode of Dexter's Laboratory that went unaired because it didn't pass muster with Cartoon Network's Standards and Practices department. Back in December, Adult Swim launched the #telljeff hashtag on Twitter to get a Cartoon Network executive we assume is named Jeff to get off his duff and release the episode. It looks like Jeff came through, because now the episode titled "Rude Removal" is online for us all to nostalgically enjoy.

Newsreaders Premieres Tonight, But You Can Watch It Right Now

Tonight Adult Swim will be premiering their new show Newsreaders. It claims to be an "absurd take on the television news magazine format, a show that goes behind the stories that nobody else thinks are stories -- because they're not." It's a spin-off of their hit show Children's Hospital which occasionally features the Newsreaders team. I took a look at the premiere episode and it's so funny it made me wish all news shows were fictional.

Adult Swim and Cartoon Network Shows Are Finally Coming to Netflix This Spring

Without a DVR, pretty much all the programs we enjoy watching on Cartoon Network and Adult Swim fall well out of our regular schedule. Seriously, it's either they're on too early or too late, resulting in the desperate -- and oftentimes fruitless -- act of scouring YouTube in the vain hope that some copyright-infringing good Samaritan has uploaded the particular episode you missed. Thankfully, those days of watching grainy footage of Adventure Time someone filmed from their couch will soon be over since it's been announced that a library of shows from Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, and Warner Bros. Animation will be available for streaming on Netflix come March 30th!
