Trivia

Brock Samson's devotion to Led Zeppelin surfaces in several episodes. Some references are subtle - when driving the Charger, Brock almost always is listening to facsimile Led Zeppelin songs - while others are more overt, such as Hank rifling through Brock's collection of "Zep" cassette tapes, or Brock drawing the logo of the band's label instead of completing the essay portion of a written exam. He even has a (currently incomplete) tattoo of the label on his arm. See more »

I guess not too many people have seen this...
28 August 2004 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

If you haven't seen this show, take the time and watch it... its on at 11:00 on Saturdays or 12:30 on Sundays if you missed it on Saturday... it stars Patrick Warburton, you know, Joe from Family Guy..... and everyone loves Family Guy... Adult Swim hits the bullseye again with another sure to be hit show... its funny, its weird, its randomly violent, and it doesn't let up until the end... it definitely shows parodies to Johnny Quest and other old TV shows... I mean, I like it, and you're sure to like it too... unless you're a grouch who doesn't like to stay up past your bedtime... or if you just don't have a good enough sense of humor... yeah... if you like all the other shows on Adult Swim, this will fit in nicely...
