All right, it finally looks like people can now watch some ADV shows without DVDs or Anime Network. Granted, I own all of these series, but it's still cool to see them on Cable TV.

I would've never thought something like Cromartie would end up on American TV though. The humor is a bit different.

On second thought, it's perfect for the Adult Swim-type viewer though.

Looks like I'm staying up late again.... Confused

Piss, I was hoping Cromartie would show up on Adult Swim. It'd have no problems fitting in like Milk-Chan did.

I hope their commercial breaks aren't as bad as last I checked.

Well, way to go G4. I don't care what other people say about you. You brought us back Call for Help (Monday at 10AM CST) and now Cromartie High. But there's still that whole Video Game Vixen thing. Need the less, thanks for Cromartie and Leo.

As far as the ads, I don't think so. It's still late night, there will still be "Girls Gone Wild" about something and infomericals. 2-3 minutes ads every 6-7 minutes will still be there.

IMPOSSIBLE! I absolutely fail to believe that G4 could do something even halfway decent, much less INTELLIGENT like bothering to bring back some of TechTV's old lineup.

And even if they have, it's far too little, FAR too late. They've had their shot. As for this anime lineup (what the hell kind of retarded name is "Barbed-Wire Biscuit" anyway?), Colorful was a non-issue, RahXephon was just barely forgivable, but Cromartie High...screw you, G4. Have you really forgotten your role? You're supposed to be the haven for crap while Adult Swim gets all the good stuff. Your bag's Abenobashi, not CROMARTIE. Confused

Well, Leo did put in his blog and it's showing up on Tivo. Leoville The great thing is...

In fact, as those of you who have been watching it know, it’s really more like the Screen Savers of old than Call for Help used to be, especially now that Kevin Rose has agreed to appear on the show twice a week. We’ll get Patrick up to Toronto, too, I promise.
Let's face facts, AotS can try to be like TSS, but never well be.

As much love I have for AS, which has been much lately, if G4 can fix the probelms they had with ad to show ratio, then I'll forgive and forget (execpt for Video Game Vixens... the bastards). But hey, even the good ones just get away.

Why do you wish bad things upon G4?

The same reasons any other former avid TechTV viewer does. Laughing

Do'h. Well, the ratings for the block was, or, never really have been, that good. Atleast three new series, it'll be awhile before they start to show reruns.

Hold up. Maybe someone at G4 still has a few brain cells left in their noggin. Although it has a crappy timeslot, Leo is coming back on the US airwaves. Kevin Rose is going to appear on the show twice a week and they might get Patrick back on there.

As for Cromartie High School, it should do just fine on late night, you know, with the stoners and all. Anime dazed
