Let me second that!

Harvey Birdman is still good.  The evolution episode was definitely funny.  I'm looking forward to The Boondocks as well.

Has anyone watched any of this new Adult Swim stuff? I tuned out months ago, and have my tivo set to record any aqua teen if it comes on. Is any of the new stuff any good?

I'm warming up to Stroker and Hoop.  It's not up to par with Venture Bros, but it can be pretty funny.  Boondocks is simply fascinating as social commentary.  The episode when grandad dates a hooker is brilliant ("What if they have kids?  They'll be half-ho!").  The episode when MLK comes out of his coma was amazing, too.  Some of the racial issues they deal with make Chappelle's Show look tame by comparison.
Robot Chicken is a good 10 minutes of brainless fun.  And Birdman continues to rock.
Squidbillies?  Meh.

Boondocks rocks.
Stroker and Hoop rocks.
Robot Chicken rocks.
Moral Orel rocks.
Birdman, Aqua Teen, and Sealab still rock.

Squidbillies...not so good.
Perfect Hair...not good.
12 Oz. Mouse....sucks.
Tom goes to the Mayor....and sucks a big one while he's at it.

I've seen Squidbillies, 12 Oz. Mouse, Tom goes to the Mayor, and those are all horrible. Looks like I'll have to check out Boondocks and the Orel one, though.

Omigawd, Stroker and Hoop is back?  I loved the pilot!  

We never did get cable when we moved to Rochester last year, since Adult Swim was literally all we watched at our old place and it worked out to $5-$10 per hour of viewing!  I don't see us planning to get cable again soon, but maybe S&H will eventually come out on Netflix?!?!?!?!  And The Boondocks, too?

And, of course, there's always the Venture Brothers.  I just can't resist the Monarch and his evil henchbutterflies!
