Why is that? → Read More

Adult Swim and voice actor, H Jon Benjamin's role in it is long, storied, and wonderful. But not every show he's a part of lasts forever. Not everything finds the instant, squiggly success that Home Movies did. But that doesn't mean weird, single season shows don't deserve your love. → Read More
