As for the actual episodes included here: First up, you have the seven remaining unreleased episodes of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, though they are included on the disc labeled "AUPS1 S1." Meanwhile, the sparkly, brand-new Aqua Unit Patrol Squad 1 episodes are included on the disc labeled "ATHF FV" (the "FV" standing for Final Volume). I suppose this is meant to be a little joke about the fact that the two shows are basically indistinguishable. Or a printing error. Either way, insert Nelson-style "haw-haw!" here.
The actual tales included are the usual mix of brilliant absurdist comedy (I particularly love the story about the slovenly Carl actually being a spy who has been doing surveillance work on the gang for nine years), random oddities (Frylock attempting to bring Carl to Jesus by introducing Carl to Jesus' gay hairdresser?), and undercooked half-ideas (the silly, violent business with the triangles). The show isn't running on fumes or anything at this point, but even with its punchy new main title sequence, Aqua Teen H...uh, I mean Aqua Unit Patrol Squad 1 has fallen into a series of familiar rhythms. Its random violence feels less random, its absurdities more familiar and its unpredictable wildness more predictable. Still, hanging out with these characters (particularly when you're half-awake and have nothing better to do) remains a pleasure.Read more ›

Now, the batch of episodes range from superb to okay. Best being "Intervention", worst being "Larry Miller Hair System". There are seventeen episodes overall, and I do believe it is the most an ATHF/AUPS1 DVD has ever gotten. Much better than that one disc volume seven we got last time, though it did have more special features. Sadly, this is the first ATHF/AUPS1 DVD that has...virtually no special features.Read more ›
Aqua Teen. . .Whatever the Heck they are now. . .was the primetime show about seemingly nothing. As they rounded home base toward their 100th episode and longest running show on Adult Swim, I think that Dave and Matt really just didn't care anymore. They have so many projects, it was like they just wanted to see how far Adult Swim would let them take Aqua Teens until they got cancelled.
Praise be to Mike Lazzo, then, because these boys are bumpin' them out and they are still on the air.
The show definitely pushes the boundaries in many ways, and the fact that you can ONLY get the LAST volume of ATHF in this DVD set with the first season of ATUPS is one of them. I begrudgingly forgave them for the incident with DVD SEASON 4 when you selected PLAY ALL and simultaneously 10 episodes began on your screen. Real funny, guys. This DVD comes with, like, SEVEN episodes each. . .and hardly any special features.
Seasons TWO and THREE were excellent Williams Street. WHAT HAPPENED?
