The 20 Best Adult Swim Comedy Series, Ranked: From ‘Rick and Morty’ to ‘Robot Chicken’

There are few communities as obsessive as Adult Swim fans. The Cartoon Network nighttime programming block debuted in 2001 as a subversive spin on the animated channel’s daytime fare, and soon grew into a catch-all for bold creators. It eventually shook off its animated-only ethos to allow for surreal visions and adventurous filmmaking that fostered some of Hollywood’s most off-the-wall thinkers, and even brought in game celebrities to join in the insanity. Nearly every As title has disparate cults to fight for the programs that speak to them, whether it’s the rockers who ride for “Metalocalypse,” the Tim & Eric faithful who crowd the duo’s live shows, or the chemically enhanced who get their kicks on “Off the Air.”

Here are our picks for the network’s top 20 original comedy series, taking cultural influence into account alongside laughs.

“Jinnah had complex relationships with Nehru and Gandhi” – Gurinder Chadha on this Friday release Partition: 1947

  • Bollyspice
This Friday’s big release is Partition: 1947 which chronicles the events that led to the partition of India and Pakistan back in 1947. Director Gurinder Chadha has made no two bones about the fact that she managed to procure some secret documents that turned out to be an eye opener of sorts when it came to the real story of the partition. This isn’t all as she also brings to fore the humane side of Jinnah, Nehru and Gandhi in the film.

As a matter of fact Partition: 1947 is also one of those rare films where Jinnah is not really shown as a villain of the piece. Does Gurinder wish to elaborate on that?

“I deliberately set out to make a film where you could understand each character’s perspective. It is too easy to represent someone as a generic villain. Jinnah had complex relationships with Nehru and Gandhi. He

Roger Corman finally accepted himself as an iconic filmmaker for this, his final show for A.I.P.. Barely released and long considered a failure, Gas-s-s-s – Or – It Became Necessary to Destroy the World in Order to Save It sees Corman and his writer associate George Armitage attempting a Mad magazine- like amalgam of all the counterculture trends of the late 1960s. That tactical mistake becomes eighty minutes of unfocused and unfunny satire. Armitage’s script and dialogue might occasionally hit some serendipitous notes,

Kylie Jenner Was Right: 2016 Really Was the Year of Realizing Stuff
Abraham Lincoln once said, "We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses." Steve Jobs left us with, "If today were the last day of your life, would you want to do what you are about to do today?" Mahatma Gandhi advised, "Be the change you want to see in the world." And let's not forget that a wise woman once said, "I feel like every year has a new energy, and I feel like this year is really about, like, the year of realizing stuff.
