Adult Swim, the network, focuses on edgy, satirical, sometimes experimental shows that feature extreme violence, casual sexism and highly suggestive material. But it’s all done with a tongue-in-cheek attitude, so hey, it’s OK -- it’s making fun of sadism and chauvinism, not promoting it, right? Adult Swim, the Web site, follows the same pattern, with clips, articles, games, and other features that promote its shows.
Some of the shows are quite funny while some are appealing only to a niche audience, but all of them are aimed, as the name says, at adults. The Web site includes the same mix of content, which can often be hit-or-miss, but whether it strikes home or not, it’s certainly not for young people.
Online interaction: Mostly limited to bulletin boards.
