it’s week 2 of [adult swim] summer pilot rollout program, where new shows go head-to-head, in hopes of becoming a full-on series. I didn’t catch the first week’s pilots, but word has it, this week’s are better.
King Star King 3/5
a show about sex, drugs, and rock & roll. King Star King is a punk rocker who does a lot of drugs. he is banished to another realm by the king, after getting caught with his daughter. Tommy Blacha (Metalocalypse) provides the voice of the antagonist, Spring Bunny (in a variation of his Dr. Rockzo voice) and also serves as one of the show’s executive producers. this show reminds me of Superjail.
from the guys who brought you Robot Chicken, it’s the story of a group of superheroes who live in a mansion. think of it as a cross between Titan Maximum and Drawn Together. in the pilot episode. they are being audited by the US government. Bryan Cranston supplies the voice of the group’s leader. Titanium Rex. Keegan Michael Key does the voice of the auditor. Robot Chicken regulars, Seth Green and Tom Root, also provide voices.
if I had to pick which one I would rather want to see turned into a series, it would be Ubermansion. King Star King is pretty good, but seems like you need to be fucked out of your gourd, to properly enjoy. go here to watch and vote for the episodes.
