Win CHECK IT OUT! WITH DR. STEVE BRULE: Seasons 1 & 2 on DVD

The first two seasons of Adult Swim’s hilariously awkward Tim and Eric spin-off Check It Out! with Dr. Steve Brule have been collected on DVD, and A Fistful of Culture has scored three copies from Madman to giveaway. Starring the brilliant John C. Reilly as the titular character, the DIY show follows Brule as he “checks out” various …

Win two seasons of Jon Glaser’s DELOCATED on DVD

Adult Swim are primarily known for their wacky animated fare, but they also make weird live-action series such as Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! and Delocated. The latter comes from the mind of Jon Glaser — a former writer for Conan O’Brien, best known for his current role as Jeremy Jamm on Parks and Recreation — who stars as a …

Win all four seasons of THE VENTURE BROS. on DVD!

For anyone somehow unaware, The Venture Bros. is a brilliant animated TV series that has been the shining light of Adult Swim‘s often stonerish line-up over the past decade, delivering countless classic episodes that deftly blend exciting action and hilarious comedy while they chronicle the adventures of the Venture family: the eager but incompetent twin teenagers Han …

[WATCH] Jon Hamm & Adam Scott star in THE GREATEST EVENT IN TELEVISION HISTORY

Late last week Adult Swim aired The Greatest Event in Television History, an hilarious 12-minute comedy short starring a bunch of my favourite people which has since surfaced online. Created by Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation), the project is a ridiculous and awesome recreation of the opening credit sequence to Simon & Simon, with Jon Hamm …

[WATCH] Bloody CHILDRENS HOSPITAL Season 4 promo ft. THE SHINS’ ‘It’s Only Life’

Rob Corddry’s brilliant Adult Swim comedy Childrens Hospital is returning for its fourth season on August 9, and a rather unexpected new promo for the show surfaced this week. The video prominently features The Shins’ nice Port of Morrow single ‘It’s Only Life‘, juxtaposed with a whole heap of blood. It gets pretty gross and could probably be …

[LISTEN] FLYING LOTUS: ‘Between Friends’ ft. Earl Sweatshirt & Captain Murphy

Following great entries from Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Wye Oak, Adult Swim’s excellent Singles Program series continues this week with a new track from Flying Lotus featuring Earl Sweatshirt and “Captain Murphy” (who sounds suspiciously like Tyler, the Creator). ‘Between Friends’ features exactly the kind of thick production and jazzy beats we expect from FlyLo by now, …

[LISTEN] WYE OAK: ‘Spiral’

The latest participants in Adult Swim’s Singles Program series are Americana-tinged indie rockers Wye Oak, following Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s ‘I’ll Come Back 4 U‘. The Baltimore duo – whose understated LP Civilian was one of my favourite albums of last year – head in a different sonic direction than you might expect with the angular, hypnotic ‘Spiral’, but the slow-burning track is no less entrancing with its addition of …

[LISTEN] UNKNOWN MORTAL ORCHESTRA: ‘I’ll Come Back 4 U’

The good people at Adult Swim are kicking off their annual Adult Swim Singles Program this year with Kiwi-via-Portland psych-poppers Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Ruban Nielson and co. have contributed a funky, lo-fi new track called ‘I’ll Come Back 4 U’, which wouldn’t have felt out of place on last year’s great self-titled debut LP. The …

[WATCH] NEON INDIAN: ‘Fallout’

Chillwave maestro Neon Indian has dropped an Adult Swim-produced video for ‘Fallout’, the latest single from his awesome 2011 LP Era Extraña. Directed by Flying Lotus collaborator Lilfuchs, the clip features a pink-haired, generously-proportioned woman taking her hot-pink sports car to the shop. 

Paul Scheer’s NTSF:SD:SUV:: renewed for a second season

  Paul Scheer’s absurd and hilarious police procedural parody NTSF:SD:SUV:: (National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle) has been picked up for another season by Adult Swim, following its Season 1 finale last night. The show began as a short interlude during Rob Corddry’s brilliant Childrens Hospital and has since taken off, gaining 15% in US viewers between the …
