Hulk Hogan recently tweeted that he was going to be doing the voice of Dean on an Adult Swim cartoon called "The Professor Brothers". I don't know if Hogan got a bunch of shit mixed up, if Adult Swim is trying something here, or if Jackson Public is, but I know that it makes me giggle to think that little Dean grew up to sound like the Hulkster

The Professor Brothers is a webseries on Adult Swim's site.

Hogan's Tweet:
"Good morning,headed to Tampa to do the voice of the DEAN,a crazy character on the Professor Brothers,a new cartoon on Aduly Swim. HH"

thanks, like I said, I wasn't sure if Hogan didn't know what exactly he was talking about, or what. I just found it interesting that there was a char. named "Dean" on another series with Brothers in the title. Thanks for the clear up

(though now I really want Hulk to voice a pissed off adult Dean on VB)

It does say THE Dean. Maybe he's a different character, like the dead of a college or something.

I don't know why and how nobody reported this, but apparently we will get next month an all new half hour Halloween special. Jackson Public even has some pics on his blog.

Does anyone care? I made a list of my favourite 20 episodes and turned it into a video.

So who saw the Halloween special? I never laughed harder at the appereance of Santa Claus, but most of all I want to know what was up with Hatred's boobs and Dean's Emo look. I guess this special wasn't supposed to be the 1st new episode after all.

Did you see it? Fuck, that was another great episode and I can't wait for the next one. And I love that showing the Halloween episodes a few months ago out of order even makes totally sense.

Episode 5x02 wasn't as good as the season premiere, but it was far from being bad. Leave it to this show to take a throwaway character from the worst episode ever and turn him into an interesting character who I would love to see return more often. Plus: Gilian Jacobs as Marsha Backwood.

Both episodes were awesome.

HELPeR escaping the squid & whale cracked me up.

Thought Hatred was being written off at the end.

Something tells me that by the end of the season The Monarch will either have to question his hatred for Rusty or will have a good reason to hate the whole damn family even more.

Of the new episodes so far:

1 - I thought was really rather good.
2 - I thought wasn't that good.
3 - I thought was really quite good.

That second episode felt like it belonged in season 1 with Brock and not Hatred. It felt out of place at this stage in the programme's evolution.

Yeah, but I think it's cool that they tried to go back to the "Hey, let's have a silly adventure" of the early years.

I have to say I really appreciate all the work you put into this, but for me, Season One, Episode 1 is still my favorite episode. The current season is pretty strong so far. I've been happy with everything.

I'm not disagreeing with you here. It was definitely a struggle to rate 20 episodes and put them into the right order, but the top 3 was the hardest part, because they aren't exactly that different quality wise IMO. If I would rate the awesomeness of each episode in percent, DIA DE LOS DANGEROUS (my #3, for those who didn't watch the video) would maybe be only 0,2% less awesome than my #1 (20 YEARS TO MIDNIGHT).
Actually I think if 1x01 had a little bit more of a story, it would have been my #1 too. As much as I love the episode, it is the one that feels the most like typical Adult Swim stuff. Still at least 50 times more clever and hilarious than anything else on AS, but it's like the whole episode was written as a build-up to Brock's two killing sprees. (Not that I'm complaining. If I would make a video of my favourite SCENES from the series, Speedy's death and the henchman massacre would be my #1 & 2.)

4 - It was okay. Kind've on par with episode 2.

And another great episode with lots of shocking twists, that will keep the mythology of the series alive! And I'm glad that they finally made clear that The Sovereign isn't the real David Bowie. I always hated the joke. Too much Adult Swim-esque "Ha ha, see the celebrity do evil things" for me.

Episode 5 - Perhaps the best of this series so far.

So MOMMA'S BOYS was one weird ass episode, that should have been lumped into the bag with rare misfires like VIVA LOS MUERTOS or PERCHANCE TO DEAN, but the difference to those stinkers is, that I was smiling from the beginning. Yeah, it was actually a very good episode, although so far the weakest of this season.

This whole new series feels like it's a bit of a misfire.

That episode was all over the place.

Come on, two of the first five episodes belong without a doubt to the best of the whole series!

This episode actually made me wanna see an OSI spin off. (But I would still prefer an ORDER OF THE TRIAD one.)

Shallow Gravy Halloween Special 'Behind The Music' type deal counted as one, eason premiere 'hour-long' counted as two, seven more eps, and that's the ten for the series. Apparently Hammer and Publick are well into working on the next season, but it's going to be a long wait again.

WHAT'S YOUR TELEPHONE NUMBER TAPEHEAD? I'LL GIVE YOU SOME OVER THE PHONE, LET'S SEE HOW BIG YOU ARE THEN!!

(your comment alone makes you the most despicable person here. id rather talk to the OLEGers, they have much more interesting things to say than you.)

i really get pissed off when people refer to me as this kirk person. i met that guy on set who thought he was gods gift to film making and acting just because he had enthusiasm but fuckall talent or skill. i beat the shit out of his face when i met him after we got off the bus after work.

so i appreciate it IF YOU ALL WOULD STOP THINKING I AM HIM!!

SOON I'LL HAVE TO KILL ALL OF YOU!!!!

I don't know if it was a wise move to release the season 6 trailer on the same day as the Star Wars trailer, but here we mothertucking go!
