It's pretty much the funniest show on Adult Swim besides Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

+1 for your awesome TV choice, though.

It's very funny. I like "Venture Bros." better, though, and nothing is funnier than "Frisky Dingo". "Archer", from the same guys who did FD, is starting up this week. I can't wait.

I've always found it a weirder/worse version of Family Guy, even though Seth Green does both shows...

I think your confusing Seth McFarlane with Seth Green. Seth McFarlane does Family Guy and American Dad, and the Cleveland show. Seth Green does Robot Chicken.

I love Adult Swim. I love King of the Hill, Family Guy, and American Dad. I used to be into Robot Chicken but kinda got bored with it. My favorites are the Squidbillies and Metalocalypse. I like ATHF too, and Tim and Eric: Awsome Show, Good Job.

Check it out on yur TV lookity box!

Squidbillies is great too. :bigthumbup:

We really love adult swim. I don't even know what channel it's on! My wife records it, and we watch. Comedy Central?

Seth Green also does voices, including Chris Griffin, on Family Guy.

Which is funny since both of the Family Guy Star Wars specials contained an ending scene where McFarlane as Peter bashes Robot Chicken and their work, where Green as Chris will defend it, and point out that both Robot Chicken Star Wars specials beat out the Family Guy ones.

Seth Green is on "Family Guy", too. Hence the "Robot Chicken" shout-out at the end of the first "Family Guy" "Star Wars" special.

I've noticed that Adult Swim has started airing some episodes of the British version of The Office with Ricky Gervais. As far as I know, this is the only channel in the US where you can see it. Caught some of it a few weeks ago...thumbs up to Adult Swim.

BBC America will air it every once in a while.

I've seen quite a few episodes, and it just isn't as good to me as the US version. Granted, they're totally different in tone, but I'm not a fan.

Hmmmm I'm not sure if I get BBC America on DirecTV. I'll have to check it out.

I agree that they are pretty different, especially the way Gervais and Steve Carell play the main character. And their accents are so thick in the British version that I genuinely have a tough time understanding it in some scenes.

I've seen maybe 4 or 5 episodes...I like it a lot...maybe just a hair less than the US version.

I love the original. I saw it years ago on BBCA. I tried watching the US version but couldn't make it through a single episode. Too sit-commie.
