Here's the Aphex Twin video that they couldn't show on Adult Swim

After a string of warped teasers appeared in major cities around the world, in addition to a characteristically impossible-to-parse press release, Aphex Twin has announced his new EP, Collapse. We might’ve had this information last night, when Adult Swim was scheduled to air his new video “T69 Collapse,” but it didn’t…

10 episodes of The Venture Bros. that show why fandom is both the best and the worst

When it started, The Venture Bros. was an unsubtle parody of Jonny Quest, centering on a super-scientist, a burly bodyguard, and a couple of rambunctious teens who love a good adventure but are also just a hair too naïve to really survive for long on their own.

Harvey Birdman will return to Adult Swim for a half-hour special later this year 

11 years after he last worked on a case, Harvey Birdman is returning to Adult Swim for Harvey Birdman, Attorney General, a new animated special in which the world’s greatest superhero/attorney must figure out how to remove a megalomaniac billionaire from the presidency.

Adult Swim celebrates this year's April Fool's by running a new FLCL episode months ahead of schedule

Adult Swim is notoriously generous when it comes to its April Fool’s Day pranks, with stunts like last year’s unexpected Rick & Morty premiere delighting fans (and sending those of us tasked with covering these sudden content drops running to our keyboards on a Saturday night). Now, the network has reportedly done it…
