Aqua Teen Hunger Force Vol. 7
Starring Dave Willis, Dana Snyder, Carey Means
Cartoon Network/Adult Swim
Release date: June 1, 2010
For the first three or four seasons, I was addicted to Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Hell, I even saw the Aqua Teen movie in the theater. Twice. But then I kind of fell off and missed a bunch of episodes, so this Vol 7 DVD set of the show is the first with episodes that I havenâ€™t seen before. I watched this trying to find out if the show had regained whatever it was that I loved about the earlier seasons.
There are a lot of good episodes on this set, but I still think the show has lost whatever it was that made me love those first few seasons. I donâ€™t know if Iâ€™m just tired of the humor, or if the jokes are just over used, but there just arenâ€™t as many quotable lines as there used to be. There are still some good episodes, including the return of Dr. Wongburger, and an episode with Hitler returned as a balloon.
Also included in this set is the live-action episode featuring T-Pain, H. Jon Benjamin, and contest winner Dave Long as Carl. The live-action episode was a great experiment, but I donâ€™t think it worked out as well as I hoped it would. Itâ€™s really just not that funny, other than being even more absurdist than the show normally is.
