Boston and the ATHF: the day after

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 1st 2007 1:15PM

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.

Aqua Teen hits theaters in March

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 3rd 2007 1:02PM

aqua teenAfter 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.

Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie: a sneak peek

aqua teen hunger forceAfter watching the first minute of the Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie and jumping around my apartment clapping, squealing and giggling like a little girl in anticipation of the movie's theatrical release sometime next year, I figured I should let those of you who haven't discovered it yet know that AdultSwim.com has the clip, which you can watch and laugh at here. Judging from this minuscule slice of the whole picture pie, it looks as if they're making the show with the fans in mind, and screw anyone who comes into the theater who has never seen the series before. I can't imagine they'd do the movie any other way, since a show about anthropomorphic fast food that interacts with mystical and often evil forces from time and space is really the kind of oddity that people find on their own. I don't predict huge returns for this film, but if it doesn't become an instant cult hit, I'll eat my hat. The hat I made of licorice.

The Venture Bros: Fallen Arches

Venture Bros.(S02E08) Yet another fantastic episode. I'm really astounded by how well this season is going. This week contained a better look at the inner workings of the hero/super-scientist vs. arch-enemies business, and, for the two of you interested, there's Monarch nudity.

The Five: Shows I really wish I was into, but I'm not

Aqua Teen Hunger ForceHave you ever had a friend tell you, "you just HAVE to watch this show. You'll love it!" Or is there a show on that looks like something you'd love, because you like the genre or you like the people behind the scenes or the cast, but for some reason you just can't get into the show (maybe it's just not as good as you thought it would be)?  Here's my list of the five shows I wish I was into, but I'm not.

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.

Aqua Teen Hunger Force: Deleted Scenes

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Dec 19th 2005 9:49AM

ATHFA 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.
