Many years ago, there was a show on MTV called Liquid Television. It is a show I speak of often and with great affection in my voice when I do. It was a show that consisted of a bunch of animated and irreverent sketches that were best watched late at night and out of your mind. There has never really been a show that has touched on what Liquid TV did, until now. The show is called TripTank, it is on Adult Swim, and it is every bit as glorious as the name implies.
TripTank is a show that would be described by most as insane. That is because it wants to be insane, and revels in that. The show is just a bunch of super short, animated sketches, all tied together by some scenes at the “Trip Tank” offices. These bits consist of people calling in and complaining about how stupid or gross or out there the show is. I would describe a typical bit to you from TripTank, but I think I would lose my job. We are a very conscientious blog, always considering our audience and how some of you may be young and unsullied. Just the fact that I CAN’T tell you anything about this show should compel you to want to watch it.
I will warn you, though. This show is not for everyone. It takes a special kind of insane to appreciate stuff this, well, insane. Trip Tank’s finale airs tonight at 10:30 on Adult Swim, so look for it. Trust me, you’ll know when you find it.
