Any fans of this show?

I just got finished Season One and it's the most brutally funny show ever. It's Spinal Tap parody that respects genre. The concept of a death metal band who's influence can shape the world, while under the watchful eye of the government is original genius.

Favorite eps are the ones that end the season:

Dethclown: One of the band members befriends a coke addict, glam rocker clown who becomes a spy.

Dethstars: Muderface's appearance on a sitcom leads to the bands first movie "Blood Ocean", great satire.

It Has Begun: Finale where the band finally performs their concept album for sea creatures live in Poland, inciting further riots and military action. A blood war ensues.

Going to pick-up Season Two this weekend.

Well, so Squidbillies is out of the question...

I love the Squidbillies theme but that's about it. AdultSwim's more recent shows have really tried my patience. I'm a Futurama/Venture Brothers kind of guy.

I don't care for Metalacalypse but I do think this is purely generational which happens now and then to me. I get agitated by the noise of it, both sound and visuals. My daughter has the season sets so maybe I'll give it another try.

I like The Venture Brothers too, especially the eps written by Edlund. I grew up as a metal head but like a bunch of different music now. I still can appreciate where the show's coming from. For not being a real band the thrash is pretty killer. Season Two has an absolutely insane extra that nearly made me piss myself this morning - Dethklok recalling band names. What's neat is you completely forget that this is just two guys voicing the five band members. It has to be heard to believe.

Along with It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia it's probably the best comedy show ever made. Put those two shows together and that basically sums up my sense of humor.

I love watch Squidbillies, is a great animated film, and my little kids have a game named SquidBillies. They love that game.
