Let’s be honest here, with The Walking Dead about to launch into it’s 8th season (you can watch the trailer here,) we’ve been seen endless tortures, cannibalism, graphic violence, pudding that has to be way past its expiration date, and more unspeakable horrors. It’s almost like like in the zombie apocalypse isn’t fun at all. Where is the singing? Where is the dancing? Where are the outdated pop-culture references?
Well, apparently they are over at Adult Swim’s forthcoming Robot Chicken’s The Walking Dead Special, the trailer for which just premiered at San Diego Comic-Con. Check it out: (more…)
It seems like we have been waiting forever for Rick and Morty to return. We were fortunate to enjoy Adult Swim’s usual April 1st stunt, which just happened to show the first episode of Season 3, and made us once again crave McDonald’s Szechuan sauce (don’t be surprised if that makes a comeback). Since then, we have not heard a peep for the new season. There were even rumors that there was trouble behind the scenes between co-creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland had deteriorated during the making of a third season of the cult show. Both have denied that was the case and they have just been hard at work on delivering the new season. Lucky for us, the third season now has a start date.
There’s a new clip from the fifth and final season of Genndy Tartakovsky’s Samurai Jack making the Internet rounds and it has all the Samurai Jack action any fan could hope for. Jack is on the attack against evil robot bugs and he’s using all the technology and weapons he can lay his hands on to get the job done. Set 50 years since we last saw Jack, he has not aged, doomed to roam the future relentlessly followed by a band of assassins sworn to his destruction. (more…)
Fans of Rick and Morty have been clamoring for any and all information related to the upcoming third season for a long time and it looks like things are finally moving forward. The third season was initially expected to air sometime last year, but has been delayed for an unknown number of reasons. We recently reported on creator Dan Harmon and his exploits on Twitter addressing production, but this news is less rumor and more cold, hard facts. Rick and Morty season three is in production!
Fans of Rick and Morty have been clamoring for any news related to when season three might finally premiere. It was first thought the series would return towards the end of 2016, but that didn’t happen. While they may be more patient than fans of other series, the people awaiting new episodes of what has been called the most scientifically accurate animated comedy are getting anxious, which may be why co-creator Dan Harmon spoke out today via an interview on Indiewire addressing the delay in the premiere of season three.
Season Three lurks around the corner for Mike Tyson’s Mysteries. This Sunday April 17th at 11:45 PM a new episode will air on Adult Swim. Anyone who watched the show in the past will understand why it earned a 82% Critic Rating and 95% Audience Rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Mike Tyson stars on the show with a flamboyant ghost named Marquess of Queensberry (pronounced Marcus), his adopted Korean daughter, Yung He and the infamous, show stealing Pigeon voiced by Norm MacDonald. Crude and witty jokes play off of Mike Tyson’s straight man act to a high degree of adult comedy not seen since The Hangover. Last season the gang solved the mystery of how Pigeon (Richard) became a bird. Now we catch up to the gang entering a romance novel episode of “Lusty Cabins”. Check out the video below. (more…)

One tweet. Five words. “Pocket Mortys. Mobile. January 14th.”. That’s how the news broke about Adult Swim‘s new Pokemon-style game featuring the titular characters from Rick and Morty. For anyone planning on grabbing the free mobile game for iOSand Android devices, get set for what will surely be a sci-fi infused, foul language filled romp as Rick, who must battle with and collect different Mortys from across the multiverse.The game’s voice work will be handled by the show’s co-creator Dan Harmon, while fellow co-creator and avid gaming enthusiast Justin Roiland is currently working on his own unrelated mobile game for the HTC Vive.

Rick and Morty are on a roll! The Season 2 premiere of the animated comedy series aired July 26, securing the #1 spot for its time period (11:30 PM/ET). Season 2 charted triple-digit delivery gains over Season 1, and cultivated 29.7 million streams in July. All that being said, it’s no wonder Adult Swim announced they’ll be ordering more wacky intergalactic episodes with the Rick and Morty Season 3 pickup.
In addition to interviewing the creators and a couple cast members from Rick and Morty while at San Deigo Comic-Con, I also had the opportunity to sit down with Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer of The Venture Bros. The always dapper pair were there promoting the upcoming season of their Adult Swim show, which can be succinctly described as Johnny Quest all grown up, but in reality is so, so much more. (more…)
