Snake N` Bacon Sizzle Their Way Onto TV!
Snake `N` Bacon is the brand new hit animated comedy series on "Adult Swim" which is currently airing on late Sunday nights / early Monday mornings. If you don`t already watch or know much about "Adult Swim," it`s sort of mad cap collection of quite oddly unique, strangely creative, off the wall and utterly spaced out animated comedy that is extremely popular these days with male viewers between the age of 15 and 30.
Adult: Not particularly adult in the sense of behaving in a disciplined, mature fashion, but more along the lines of delving deeply into explicit topics most definitely NOT for children or those with a sensitive disposition or priding themselves on their high values, moral and ethics.
Swim: Well ... basically, that what your mind will do after about an hour or so of their programming.
So what exactly is Snake `N` Bacon? Would it make sense if I were to tell you that it is a creatively artistic show that features one character, names Snake who only communicates by hissing and another character names Bacon, who in fact is a slice of bacon who talks in 1st person about nothing more than ... well, I bet you`ve already guessed, BACON!
It`s a 15 minute presentation, like Robot Chicken, another hugely popular "Adult Swim production co-created by Seth Green of Family Guy, Austin Powers and Idle Hands. Its part animation and part live action, with a very surrealistic, psychedelic play back and forth between the two.
What do I think? Well ... I`m still in the process of making up my mind. I Love bacon and admire and respect Bacon`s obsession with bacon, but I`m not a huge fan of snakes and find the sound of a continual Hisssssssss sort of annoying after awhile, unless it`s bacon sizzling in a pan or on a grill.
It`s trippy and creative, definitely weirdly off the wall and way out there. Only YOU would truly know for sure if this is something that you would truly enjoy. If you like strangely odd comedy with a biting attitude (no pun intended, toward the snake or the bacon!) then be sure to check it out on Adult Swim.
