Aqua Teen Hunger Force: Volume 3 (DVD)
First of all, they're not teens. Secondly, there's not water involved. The whole Hunger Force thing? That's probably misleading, too. In short, if you have to ask what "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" is about, it is probably not a show for you. The rest of us will go on thrilling to the adventures of Frylock, Meatwad and Master Shake as they, you know... hang out.]]>

Are you tired of boring cartoons like The Simpsons and Bob's Burgers ???
Aqua Teen Hunger Force will cure you of your mental health. Just press play on this little disc and watch joyously as the ensuing dementia envelopes.
My favorite episode from this season is where the spider living in their attic that looks like an onion emerges, proclaiming his name is Willy Nelson and takes lessons from Master Shake on how to be a monster.
I wept for 40 days and 40 nights when I learned that the show was over back in 2015. Well, not really, but I SHOULD have wept.
Watch this show while you still have the chance - for before you know it, it will be the year 2023 and you will be taking out a second mortgage on your home to buy a new cellphone that allows you to live inside and hibernate within it.
Delivered on time.
'The Clowning' may be my favorite episode ever, and 'Total Recarl' and 'The Last One' are right up there as well. 'Revenge of the Trees', 'The Cloning', 'Broodwitch', 'The Cubing', and 'The Shaving' are also all very, very weird and wonderful.
Overall, the series has worn off a just bit for me from when I was first blown away by it's sheer dada-esque insanity, but the best episodes still transcend to inspired, sublime levels of bizarre, gross, tweaked humor, leaving you both laughing out loud and shaking your head at the audacity and bravery of the storytelling. When your starting premise is a giant talking shake, fries, and wad of meat living in suburban New Jersey, USA how wrong can you go? If you like strange, gonzo humor (Monty Python would be my generation's touchstone) and/or out-there adult animation, you owe it to yourself to give this a try -- and give it a couple of episodes to let your head get into what the creators are doing.
This season is perhaps the defining season of ATHF and is a prime example of unadulterated comedy. The opening sequence of Grim Reaper Gutters is the most classic ATHF moment you will ever experience. Revenge of the trees is also laden with dry and often unexpected humor that might even verge on satire if the show took itself seriously (e.g. when the trees use Carl's skin for post-it notes). This season has episodes that aren't spectacular (Spirit Journey Formation Anniversary comes to mind), but the occasional hiccup is far outweighed by the mass of comedic delight this series has to offer.
Bottom line, if you like to laugh, look no further than ATHF Vol.3 (until you're done with this season, then you should probably go buy more).
The episodes are great, as are the extras on this set. There are commentaries for several shows, a couple of great deleted scenes (I like the "Broodwich" outtake especially), an interesting (but too long) short film on the making of "The Cloning," several script page features, and assorted other bonuses. The commentaries are more rambling dialogue and less about the show than I would have liked, but they are still interesting to hear.
This is a great set of episodes from one of the most original television shows to come along in years, and I recommend it highly.
Watching an episode (all under 12 min) of Aqua Teen Hunger Force is comparable to hours of meditation. There are few shows that will clear your mind and cheer you up this well. However the show is not well appreciated by those who attempt to understand it. Out of all the episodes I have seen over the years, I recall only one where the plot actually achieved resolution. Additionally, the program might not be enjoyed by some because a certain level of understanding and amusement for the eccentricities of Bridge and Tunnel Trash (residents of New Jersey) is required.
The relationships and interactions of the main characters and their neighbor provide a wonderful barometer against which to measure your own friendships.
All told its wonderful programing.
That is all still true, but the reviewers who hint at the waning quality of the episodes are correct...to some extent, the writers period of faltering is evident here, but the episodes that follow this collection show less of the 'faltering' exemplified here.
