In case you missed it, Adult Swim aired the "pilot" of Bag Boy on Friday, a fake sitcom starring John C. Reilly's awkward health correspondent character Steve Brule. If there were any justice in the world, Bag Boy would become the new "Too Many Cooks," as it expands on the viral clip's skewering of corny sitcom tropes, puppet animal sidekick and all.
Black Dynamite is the best show on television. Since beginning its second season on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim back in October, Dynamite—an animated spin-off of the 2009 Michael Jai White blaxploitation send-up/homage movie— has depicted the following: Mister Rogers (you know, the army-trained killing machine-turned-children's show host?) using Waka Flocka Flame lyrics to train an army of child soldiers; Rev. Al Sharpton using the shocking content of Alex Haley's Roots ("I heard it was bad, but not THAT bad!") to convince the black community to enslave all white people in retaliation for not getting reparations; and Mr. Drummond from Diff'rent Strokes adopting a group of streetwise black children to compete in a Hunger Games-style tournament for an audience of bloodthirsty, affluent whites. Why are you watching Friends reruns again?
