I gave up talking about Adult Swim stuff a while ago, as nobody usually has a clue what I'm talking about, and any attempts to explain it usually result in uncomfortable stares, lol.

That said, the new season is off to a fantastic start, Vernon hasn't lost his edge at all.

Still looking forward to new Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell, that's ended up being my favorite active series on there now that Heart She Holler is done.

Dead to Me - I remember getting some minor enjoyment out of season 1, but this was just infuriatingly stupid. Despite some funny moments, the tearjerking is off the charts, annoying and doesn’t hit home at all. The show constantly and annoyingly shoves its awareness of social injustices down the viewer’s throats, but seems to think it’s acceptable to just kill a man who was verbally abusive and wants us to sympathize with a main character that’s just flat out ugly inside and out (Applegate looks like a scarecrow).

I am not that familiar with the Adult Swim scene, only with the big ones like The Eric Andre Show tbh. I saw the trailer for "Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell"
prior to your mention and it didn't do much for me, but "Heart She Holler" looks absolutely bonkers, so I will surely put it to my watchlist, cheers.

IMO, The Heart, She Holler is the best thing Vernon Chatman has ever done. It's nuttier than a tree full of squirrels on laughing gas, downright disgusting at the best of times, disturbing at the worst, and fucking hilarious throughout.

Your pretty face is going to hell took me a little bit to get into. The first season left me mildly entertained but mostly nonplussed. Now that I've seen them all, it's easily in my top 5 for that network, it's funny as hell once you get a handle on the characters.

Also, if any of you are into Anime, check out Ballmasters. It's more of a parody of Anime tropes, but well written and the animation style is really cool. Also, if you don't like Anime, you should still watch it (I fucking hate anime lol), it's just funny in general.

As we are on the topic of wacko tv, does anyone know from which show (or a movie) is this clip? I stumbled upon this gif on some edgy meme page, but have zero context. Danger 5 would be my best bet but I have only seen 2 episodes so far so I cant confirm it:

It's not from Danger 5. I could see why you would think that because of the zi's. Go finish the series, amazing.

Bummer, I guess I will have to go to 4chan for them to sniff out the sauce, cheers.

Peaky Blinders is a good show.

I just finished Bloodline. It was mostly a great albeit uncomfortable watch. However, it’s pretty incredible how badly the show went off the rails in season 3. I read they were told halfway through filming there wasn’t gonna be another season, which makes sense, considering how rushed everything felt. Still, did it have to be this nonsensical?

I know some people here are fans of the show Dark. Have any of you watched the 3rd and final season yet? I'm about to start it up...

Third season was a pretty big disappointment for me, season 1 is great and season 2 fantastic, though.

Agreed. S3 became more of a "let me clarify who did who" plot-line to try to explain things. It would've been cool if they developed a story about time travel aspect. It's a pretty engaging 1st and 2nd season for anyone who digs Sci-Fi.

I just binged Dark the other week and loved it. I think all 3 seasons are masterfully crafted. S3 does feel a little rushed, but it made sense for it not to be as microscopically detail-oriented as the previous two, given how the story unfolds on a larger scale.
