Almost 15 years ago, the Cartoon Network programming block known as Adult Swim came into our lives with all of its sexual situations, extreme violence, and cartoon aliens swearing at each other. The block’s shows have evolved and changed a lot over the years, but now for some unexplained reason the AS website has introduced the Adult Swim Time Rift, giving users a look at the quasi-channel’s past and future.
The most appealing part of the Adult Swim Time Rift is undoubtedly the inaugural programming lineup from that fateful Sunday night in September, 2001, which is now available to be viewed in full (complete with selected commercials and those old Adult Swim bumpers) on the site. In case your memory ain’t what it used to be due to 15 years of staying up too late watching TV, that original lineup is Home Movies, followed by the debut episodes of The Brak Show, Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law, and Sealab 2021, plus the newly swear-friendly Space Ghost Coast to Coast and finally, Cowboy Bebop.
Then there are all the weirdo Easter eggs which I am frankly too old to be able to understand or explain, but you can check out everything in the Adult Swim Time Rift at the official Adult Swim site right here.
