Tim, Eric, Saul and Other Guys You May Have Seen...

I don't want to say anything yet. I am going to wait until I can get DVD copies to Ms. Geek and Dr. Toon of this thing. And I want them to discuss it on the next recorded Cartoon Geeks podcast (which hopefully will be in a week or two, depending on our mutual schedules).

However, in the meantime, I wish to direct your attention to the two non-animated shows that Adult Swim have started: Saul of the Mole Men and Tim and Eric Awsome Show: Great Job! Just watch. Set a recorder or a Tivo on it to grab those shows. Just watch. Ponder them.

Then wait 'till we talk about them.

Among other things I hope we'll be discussing on the new show: the new Disney animated/live-action film planned for Christmas release, Enchanted. The curious actions of Cartoon Network in running, without advance announcement, the two Hellboy cartoon hour-long features - the most recent one before its official DVD release. The end of Marvel Comics's "Civil War" maxi-event, ending in the assassination of Captain America, and the next step, "The Initiative," which drafts all the superheroes into working for the government. And some other surprises.
