Plot: Animated cop drama satire focusing on a grizzled, short tempered cop and his straight man partner, the former of which is simply a lower male torso.

My rating: 10/10

Will I watch it again?  Yup!

I LOVE Adult Swim but I have this tendency to fall head over heels in love with shows that don't last.  This is a prime example.  It's one of the funniest shows I've seen yet it lasted a measly 20 episodes before getting shit-canned.  What's worse is that it's only about ten minutes long per episode.  The show is so absurd that I was shocked from the first episode that it was ever made to begin with and what they do with Assy is brilliantly funny.  The filmmakers must've had a blast playing with the tropes of detective movies and shows and sending them up with Assy.  There's so much funny shit that happens in these episodes that there's too many to begin to count.  Voice artist Larry Murphy does most of the male voices on the show.  Damn this guy's got talent.  This was one of those shows that I love so much that I was genuinely sad when I realized it wasn't coming back.  It was comedy genius and I'm at least thankful to the guys and gals at Adult Swim and The Cartoon Network for at least giving it a chance. By the way, there has never been a DVD release for this show or any other merchandise that I've ever come across and I scour the 'net about once a year in the hopes that there's something somewhere I can throw money at.
