Itís possible that the best of the best when it comes to wacky TV is Childrens Hospital. The Adult Swim comedy has made its name by striking at everything thatís tired and typical about dramatic medical shows. But, it looks like the seventh season will be the last.
Warner Bros. Television has announced their plans for Comic-Con in San Diego later this month. That includes the traditional Wednesday pilot screenings for preview night, as well as a bevy of panels for their new and popular TV series during the convention.
For the passionate TV fan, it's not difficult to find great TV-related panels at Comic-Con. In fact, the real challenge is trying to figure out how to get to all of the great panels in a given day, which is virtually impossible. When it comes down to it, it's all about prioritizing. And Friday's schedule is a prime example. Is it possible to get to the Adventure Time panel at the Hilton and also make The Walking Dead panel over in Hall H?
Adult Swim has announced their plans for Comic Con, including the list of shows that will be featured in panels, and the list of talent set to appear to talk about their related series, including Rob Corddry, Ken Marino, Paul Scheer, Jackson Publick, Doc Hammer, Seth Green, Patton Oswalt, Amy Sedaris, Eric Andre, Hannibal Buress and others. Also on the menu for Adult Swim fans is the Adult Swim Funhouse, which will offer viewers a chance to wander through a themed funhouse for the chance to earn themselves a t-shirt.
Netflix is getting a lot more fun with its latest crop of new additions, it's Adventure Time! Come on and grab your friendsÖ The streaming video subscription service has secured deals with Turner's Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, which means Adventure Time, Robot Chicken, Regular Show and a number of other great animated and live-action series are now available to streaming subscribers. The announcement also included word that the first season of TNT's Dallas is now available streaming.
I can't believe I almost let a whole week go by and I didn't share this clip. One of the funniest shows of the last few years was Starz' Party Down. Notice that I had to say "was" because the show, like so many other comedic gems who will not be named, was cancelled after only two seasons. Lucky for us, the few of us that tuned in and adored the show that is, there was a brief Party Down reunion on last week's Childrens Hospital.
It is confirmed by science that there are more comedians roaming American television than there are feathers on the biggest chicken ever. Gone are comedic duos and trios, for troupes have taken over, and not your conventional Monty Python-like static groupings. Comedy's doors are constantly revolving, creating gluttonous, polycephalic blobs of uproarious dark matter.
And just like thatÖ itís over. Adult Swimís whacky medical-drama(ish) series Childrens Hospital is about to wrap up its first season. Read on for details from the episode.
