I watched the first episode and I just don't get it. I might give them all a go at some point. You're not the only fan on the board though.

Seriously? I absolutely love it. It helps if you love cheesy 80's TV and Horror films. I wished there was another series. My DVD is practically worn out.

I'm fairly open minded and if something is a little...odd then I can usually at least get my head round it even if I don't like it but this? I watched the first episode and I really didn't know what to make of it at all. I might need to watch all of them for it to make more sense to me though.

I'm not a big fan of horror films though for what it's worth.

You may not like the in-jokes and such then if you are not a horror film fan then.

I don't get this kind of humor at all, I personally think these kinda shows are ruining Adult Swim.

I do like this one show they have now though, Look Around You, originated from BBC so some of you have probably heard of it.

I absolutely love it. Personally it's my second favourite British comedy series (the top spot going to the mighty I'm Alan Partridge). It's just a shame it only lasted one series.

It's definitely British humour and as we know by these boards a lot of people don't get it. Never saw a single episode of Adult Swim but then I don't like much American humour

Adult Swim is a TV channel I believe...

I haven't see this but I love Richard Ayoade in The IT crowd. I've also seen a few eps of Look around you and thought it was mildly amusing but not enough to watch the entire two seasons.

Richard Ayoade is purposefully awful in Darkplace but still hilarious. No small feat. That shows you how much I know about Adult Swim then
