Gasp!  Everyone mentions the comedy shows but no one mentions all that quality dramatic stuff that just gets lumped in as "that anime stuff" except for one spare mention of Cowboy Bebop.  Sad.

Of course there's Robot Chicken and Venture Bros. and Harvey Birdman but has no one but me been watching PARANOIA AGENT?  That show is absolutely brilliant!  Were it some live action HBO drama it would be the talk of the nation but instead it gets moved from 11pm to midnight (midnight to 1am Eastern) and no one pays attention to it.  I read a snippet review in Entertainment Weekly that said it wasn't accessible to Americans but that is so untrue!  The entire show deals with alienation and selfishness and the isolation from reality and each other that is being caused by modern life.  And it's scary!  But no one mentions it...  Sad.

There are a lot of other good shows that deserve mention (and a certain one with talking food that is inexplicably popular) but Paranoia Agent is pure genius and you don't have to be an anime fan to see that.  At least I didn't think that but now...

Yes, Paranoia Agent is among my favorite animes.  In particular the four women gossiping is maybe the most realistic conversation I've ever seen on television.

Oh, and I have NEVER heard Toryanse played in an anime where it was merely incidental and done for atmosphere.
I have been told
not by one but two of my lovers
that I've got a heart of gold
but I'm unable to share it with others
They call me a poet who'll never have a poem
a tiger with no taste for bone
I'm the wonderful wonderful wizard who's waltzing alone

Family Guy, Futurama, Sealab, and ATHF.

The Mooninites are the best characters ever created. If you don't know, google it. Their episodes still make laugh out loud.
And Sealab is just too crazy for words.

Wow, this makes me realize how long it's been since I was an active user here.

I remember I watched the Oblongs when it was on. The dad was my favorite.

Oh right, I forgot about them.
The family that lived near a nuclear plant, or near toxic waste.
Yeah and the dad was a paraplegic who bounced around everywhere.

Fantastic.

not para, that would mean he had limbs and couldn't use them. He completely lacked limbs.
