The Evening Post: Is Rick from Rick & Morty The Ideal Scientist


Geek Alabama Evening Post

Tonight I am presenting the latest episode from the YouTube PBS Idea Channel.  Rick Sanchez, the erratic scientist from Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty is nothing short of brilliantly talented, but his crazy antics and experiments place him on a scientific fringe. So much so, that some may even consider Rick to not be a scientist at all. But are his anarchic methods representative of what an ideal scientist should be? On this weeks episode of Idea Channel, Mike questions what makes the perfect scientist and if the scientific method is too restrictive in the pursuit of knowledge.

And here are the comment responses to the If There Are No Pics, Did It Happen video.

The Evening Post: Rick And Morty Season Two Trailer


Geek Alabama Evening Post

I loved the first season of Rick and Morty, it’s a cartoon of a cross between comedy and sci-fi, and I enjoyed every minute of it!  Now, season two is about to land on our TV screens on Adult Swim, and they have released the trailer to season two.  The second season premieres on Sunday, July 26th at 10:30 pm Central, enjoy!

Animation Monday: Archer Season 6 / The Venture Bros. All This and Gargantua-2


Geek Alabama Animation

On this Animation Monday, I am talking about two adult cartoons that you should be a watching!  First off, let’s talk about the sixth season of Archer, that premiered in January on FX.  I first wanted to show off this Archer special video with Conan O’Brien, too funny!

So far, we have seen the ISIS named being rolled away and changed forever.  I mean come on, you knew that was coming!  The spy agency has a new office, and he got to encounter things like a Japanese person who thinks WWII is still going on, how Archer is managing his life with a child, trying to get sensitive computer information, trying to kill an assassin while on a mountain, and getting to see the wedding of Edie.

Sure, Archer had some great magic in the first season.  And the show is still ticking along.  I do find the show trying to do the same overall plots over and over again.  Yes, there is plenty of shooting, violence, nudity, and other adult things.  But, I am struggling to find something new with Archer.  I hope as season 6 goes along, we see something that says “this is why I liked Archer in the first place!”  But for now, I am enjoying the spy stuff in season 6, but how long can Archer go, that is made in Georgia?

Let’s also talk about the recent The Venture Bros. Episode that aired on Adult Swim.  In the episode called All This and Gargantua-2, you saw a ton of action, drama, twists and turns, and characters being killed off.  RIP J.J., the Sovereign, and the Venture compound!  In this extra below posted by Adult Swim, you see the bros. and others at the funeral of Jonas Venture Jr.

I thought the storyline and plots were great, and I can’t wait for season 6 to start off.  If you have not caught the one hour special episode yet, you need to check it out below, before it gets taken down off of YouTube.  This is why The Venture Bros. is one of the best cartoons on Cartoon Network / Adult Swim.

If the above video is taken down, you could always spend the $2.99 to watch the episode below!

Sunday Discussion: Playing With Power And The Bluetooth Power Glove


Geek Alabama Discussion

Do you remember the Nintendo Power Glove?  It was sold in 1989, but never caught on.  Only around 100,000 gloves were sold, but the games made for the glove were not that good, so the glove never caught on.  Boy, has gaming technology come a long way!  Now, in this short documentary called Playing With Power, you get to see the behind the scenes of the Adult Swim show Robot Chicken.

Dillon Markey is an animator for Robot Chicken.  And he modified a Nintendo Power Glove to work with his animation on the show.  Seriously, the Bluetooth Power Glove has become the most awesome animation tool ever!  And you wonder if someone should bring back the glove so all animators can have an easier job making animated work!  So, enjoy this film from the Vimeo channel , and make this power glove already!
