So I watched the TV coverage all day long of the Boston "bombs" that turned out to be electronic devices promoting Cartoon Network's Aqua Teen Hunger Force. And I think it was screwed up on every angle (media, Turner Broadcasting), but the people who deserve the least amount of second guessing from us are the Boston police and city officials.
I mean, they were doing their job. We can't expect every police officer, every city official, every politician, to be hip to what ATHF is. And even if they were, so what? A bomb can't be placed in something with a wacky cartoon character on it? Yeah, they were up for a couple of weeks, but in this day and age you can't be too careful, especially since these things were put in some really odd public places.
After months of teasing and speculation, we finally learned that, yes, there would indeed be an Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie. Now Variety is reporting that the movie is slated for a March release, opening in over 800 theaters. The movie will center on the origin of the anthropomorphic trio of Meatwad, Frylock and Master Shake, a team of talking food who fight crime and solve mysteries, except they really do neither of those things. Trust me, if the concept alone confuses you, you're probably not even reading this anyway. Oh yeah, and the antagonist in the movie is an evil piece of exercise equipment. Fans of Bruce "Don't Call Me Ash" Campbell can look forward to hearing their hero's voice in the upcoming film, along with Rush drummer Neil Peart.

1. Aqua Teen Hunger Force: A lot people have told me that I would love this show. I love f***ed up animated shows, I like pop culture-centered comedy, and I like the idea that the three main heroes are fast foods. But I just can't get into this show. Maybe it's the pace of the show, or the writing, or the fact I always have to really, really listen to Meat to understand what the hell he's saying, I don'ty know. But I'm just not into this show.
A Christmas spectacular indeed! This one easily cracks the top five best ATHF episodes. It had everything you could want: plenty of Carl, the Mooninites and Plutonians, and The Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future. Plus, it was a double episode clocking in at around 22 minutes of Aqua Teen love. Things like this make me very happy.
