Korgoth has a cult following after one pilot episode. That doesn't happen with a lot of shows.
Korgoth looked to be a quality show; had a lot of potential and great animation (now mirrored in Superjail somewhat).
Everyone I've talked to (mostly voices in my head) have expressed an interest in the continuation of this show. Why do garbage shows like Tim & Eric get aired? They absolutely **BLEEP** (not opinion, actual FACT). AS has a **BLEEP** for that boring "random humor" phase. The lazy stylings of Seth MacFarlane and Seth Green, yes we get it, you can make 8 outdated pop-culture references per second.
Bring back Korgoth! It's humor pertained to the plot and had the makings of rich characters & setting (like Samurai Jack). GIve it another pilot or something, I'm sure it will get a ton of viewers.
Suppose it's hopeless to lobby AS, as the staff is probably fapping to 10-minute cartoon shorts that can be churned out cheaply and up their bottom line.

Korgoth debuted about four years ago. The reason I remember this was because it came out the year I graduated college. I was mid-way through packing up all my junk, getting ready to move. Had the tv on late at night, half-way watching some retarded Robot Chicken episode or something. I was fairly new to Adult Swim, basically I was fairly new to cable in general! Growin up we didn't have cable, the first time I got cable was late in college.
So anywho! Korgoth came on, I was like ok, another cartoon, whatever, and I went back to packing my stuff not really paying attention. But all of a sudden the scene of Korgoth's lengthy pissing session caught my attention! I was like wtf is that!....how funny is that!! Who would've thought to show that. It was sheer brilliance! My eyes were glued to the tv. I continued watching with a school-girl giddyness.
Exploding apples, plucking leeches, saving damsels, smearing pigeon poop, Specules, Bubblegum Monster! All these hilarious gags, mixed with ultra-violence, with a peppering of wit and barbaric humor thrown in. I thought it was the best cartoon I had ever seen. And I still do. I knew it would be an instant hit! And it was.
Many youtube-watching sessions later and I still think it's just as funny the first time as it was four years ago.
What's your fondest Korgothian moment, my minions????
