Oh man, this is an idea I had on another forum that worked out pretty well till they canned the Club system.
But the idea is as such: Adult Swim plays every night (now) 8pm till morning. People like [adult swim]. So why not chat with other swimmers when it's showtime? At the very least this can be a pretty chill thread to chat.
And if this takes off like I hope it does, I can edit this first post to include characters for everyone with pics and niceness.
So, chat away?

Character: Spike Spiegel Show: Cowboy Bebop Why: Because Bebop is so real, that's why the last episode is called the Real Folk blues. The show is all about coping with loss and we can see that with the four protagonists that have nowhere else to go or no pasts to return to. Five counting Ein. I could have picked Yu Yu Hakusho which was my favorite growing up but I decided to go with something that's airing currently and because CB's been on Saturday Nights for so long. Besides that, I've taken a lot of inspiration, lessons and entertainment from this show, it's the right fit for me. Favorite Episode: Ballad of Fallen Angels Favorite Quote: Spike: I'm just watching a bad dream I'll never wake up from.
I was thrilled when CN put damn near all of it's shows on netflix instant, but then immediately disappointed when I found out it was all the first season only for everything. At least I don't have to watch Adventure Time taper off in quality, I guess.
I need to get into Venture Bros. I like what I've seen, but it's all been here and there.
Well, if this thread was made about 11 years ago I'd be all over it. Back when they gave Lupin The III, Case Closed, Samurai Champloo, etc; I remember staying up way past my bedtime on school nights just to watch Lupin. Those were the fucking days man, not a worry in the world -- sadly we can never get them back, but those memories will have to do. I believe I stopped watching Adult Swim once The Boondocks ended, which was about 5-6 years ago? Haven't looked back since, I don't even know what they show on there anymore. Oh and Venture Bros, can't forget that show either.
Ah, there's not much to really say about Venture Bros. till the new season comes out, which will be in like a year .___.
Yeah King, that's generally the case w/adult swim. That's why they hate people who like anime and make it known in their bumps, we complain too much about bringing this or that back xD I used to stay up to watch Yu Yu Hakusho. That was my thing back in the day. And this one time they played Gundam 08th MS Team super late, as part of like a brief run of midnight Toonami, that was bad ass, fond memories all around.
Also I'm updating the OP, gradually with some of me 'deas
Does Adventure Time taper off? I watched a few seasons and it never got worse.
Maybe it's just me getting burnt out after watching 5 seasons worth of episodes, but some of the later episodes felt like they were just being weird for the sake of being weird and weren't funny and/or interesting at all. For the longest time, the episodes that further explained their world and stuff like Ice King's backstory are what kept me from dropping the show until I eventually did.
I also grew to dislike Finn as the series went on, for the same reasons Stevil mentioned.
