    They are making a new movie? Awesome! I love the show, but much like a lot of the stuff on Adult Swim right now, it gets a little annoying watching the same 13 episodes over and over again of some of this stuff. Why doesn't anything ever get picked up for another season unless its one of the obvious big ones such as Metalocalypse, Robot Chicken, or Venture?

    More cool programming, please.... less live action, stoner shit like Tim and Eric.

    Well I never understood the love for Tim & Eric, Tom Goes to the Mayor, Friskey Dingo, etc. Outside of Robot Chicken and Venture Bros there isn't anything I care about on AS.

    I loved Sealab, Brak, and Harvey Birdman. They were great shows. Now stuff goes more for the non-humor humor like Napolean Dynamite.

    I wish AS would have picked up Welcome to Eltingville. That was a total nerdgasim of a show. Tons of sci-fi references galore.

    Well Eltingville cost most than 50 dollars to animate, so it was a no go. The shows are getting worse and worse animated, and the plots are horrible, and cartoon network keeps showing live action crap so bad I want to rip my eyes out. I can see better stuff on youtube with hire production values. The entire network's policy seems to be how much can we get for really really cheap.

    I could swear that show was cancelled years ago. It used to air on Teletoon late and night and was axed along with Undergrads, Mission Hill, and Clone High.

    I thought Oblongs was OK, but nothing really funny or outstanding, when it was originally on and when I used to watch the re-runs on Teletoon. Of course, I didn't realize at the time that Will Ferrell was involved and that's greatly lowered my opinion of it.

    Yep, Oblongs was cancelled way back in 2001 when it aired on the WB; it didn't even get all the way through it's first season before they pulled it.

    I like Oblongs, although like others said, when theres only a handful of episodes, its kind of boring to watch. I think Frisky Dingo is great personally, that, Robot Chicken, Squidbillies, ATHF, Venture Bros are all enjoyable too, Tim and Eric, its entertaining and retarded at the same time, like most of Adam Sandler's movies. Still though, I'd be up for watching the Oblongs movie.

    Oblongs get cancelled and Xavier Rouge Angel gets a second season. That show makes me want to rip off my ears and drill holes in my eyes. Who the hell is stupid enough to renew it??!!!

    It grows on you, and there's usually at loeast one good laugh per episode. I like the last scene of the ep where the Dad has the cyborg body, where the shark walks up the beach and starts beating people up. It's so ridiculous I get smile just thinking about it.
