I've never been a big fan of Aqua Teen Hunger Force. It's just really boring to me and i don't think it's funny. It's more strange.

"This is my current favorite DVD series. It's so absurd a premise and so beyond the pale of most cartoon series out there these days, that it has infinite appeal to both my sixteen year old son and to me. Our dynamic trio and their next door Jersey neighbor, the tank top wearing Carl, are the funniest toon characters in Television land. That's saying a lot as television is currently witnessing a true renaissance of cartoon humor. The creators are the same crew that brought us the equally silly, but cutting edge SPACEGHOST COAST TO COAST. The same sort of hip, off colour humor that informed that show is at play here, only more so. My favorite segment involves a manic depressive, deadbeat, suicidal doll who has a negative, lifeforce-draining impact on all who come in contact with him. Other highlights include a pair of aliens who look as if they've escaped from some crude '70s Atari game. The punk talking little alien, err, is particularly amusing.Of the three main characters, my favorite is Meatwad, the mush mouthed, single toothed meatball, whose speech is almost unintelligble, but who is delightfully, stupidly impressionable. If you're in the mood for some absolutely mindless, but hysterically hip comic relief, give this DVD set a try. The extras aren't that much to write home about, but no contemporary toon buff should be without this two disc set in his/her collection. If you have a sensibilty that is as warped as mine is, and you enjoy The Simpsons, South Park, Beavis and Butthead, The Family Guy, etc., I'm certain that you will enjoy this anti-superhero trio.BEK"

"Aqua Teen Hunger Force ('ATHF') is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. Starring late on night on the Cartoon Network's 'Adult Swim', ATHF centers around a narcissistic milkshake, Master Shake, a genius batch of frenchfries with super powers, Frylock, and a sizzling ball of hamburger meat, Meatwad. The three form a detective agency/squad (The Aqua Teen Hunger Force, natch) and noisily "solve" mysterious events, much to the continued annoyance of their pot-bellied and 'self-employed' neighbor Carl. Sound bizarre? You have no idea. ATHF is some sort of sick, demented combination of Super Friends, South Park, and all those unintentionally creepy cartoons from the early 80s like The Snorks. Read: it rocks.This series is one of the most consistently entertaining, funny, and quotable I've ever seen. Each episode starts with some sort of bizarre creation or device either escaping from or otherwise being generated at the lab of Dr. Wierd in his castle on the New Jersey shore. Whatever that creation is, it inevitably ends up involving our heroes in very short order. The best episodes involve the Mooninites, a pair of pixelated freaks straight out of Moon Patrol or some other 1981 Atari game with mouths like children on South Park. The Mooninites descend from, naturally, the Moon, and proceed to wreak havoc with their kleptomania and ability to fire extremely slow, square video game bullets at people ("The bullet is enormous! Jumping..is useless.")A hilarious side plot involves the fixation of the Aqua Teen Hunger Force on the joys of basking in Carl's above-ground pool. In one classic moment, Carl puts up neon racing stripes around his pool:Carl: Yeah.. my pool looks like it's tearin' arse around the backyard..'cept it's standing still. Still waters run deep.
Shake: Carl! Whoa, that pool is tricked out...turbo!
Carl: You stay away from it..because you are wierd.In another episode, as Carl is blasted into the sky, his final lingering shriek is 'Stay out of my poooooool!' In short, this is a series that was clearly a blast for the animators to put together, and it's just as much fun to watch. I recommend it to anyone with even the faintest hint of appreciation for the absurd."

"No description of any kind would make someone take this show seriously, for it sounds infinitely silly and stupid, but in truth, it just works. "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" is, without a doubt, the funniest and most creative show on Cartoon Network`s "Adult Swim" cartooning block (a series of cartoon shows made for teenagers and adults that can take more risks than normal programming). It follows the misadventures of 3 six-foot-tall living foods: Master Shake, the leader of the Aqua Teens and a milkshake, Frylock, the rational one and a bunch of french fries, and Meatwad, a very... unintelligent wad of meat and the object of many a prank set up by Master Shake. They live next to Karl, an overweight man reliving the 80s who hates it when they use his pool. When they are not getting into situations on their own, they are battling anything out-of-the-ordinary, from a living, suicidal and depressed toy of Meatwads, to a juvenile rapper named "MC Pee Pants" to a pair of 2D aliens known as the Mooninites. A crazy and amazing show, this is a must see.Volume One (2 Disc set) contains:Pilot Episode:
