Adult Swim are responsible for some of
the world’s most amusing comedy series and their latest addition to
the DVD market is Volume 3 of Harvey Birdman Attorney at Law
that features classic cartoon characters (more specifically Hannah
Barbera) in a comedic court room based drama.
Aimed at the adult market, the pop culture references are priceless
as is the characterisation of all the characters and match that with
the voice talents of Gary Cole as Harvey and Paget Brewster as
Birdgirl and their interpretations of the characters is pure
Champaign comedy and sometimes makes you squirm at some of the
political incorrectness. Classic!
For those unaware of Adult Swim’s
Harvey Birdman Attorney at Law, it revolves around a former
superhero turned lawyer which features some great anecdotes and a
plethora entertaining guest stars from Magilla Gorilla to Fred
In the current volume, we see Harvey
dealing with the death of Phil Ken Sebben (the once former Falcon
7), Birdgirl attempting to become part of the firm and the employees
of Sebben & Sebben engaging in an employee orientation video that
will have you shocked, entertained and best of all, taken on a
journey that is as far as mainstream as possible.
The episodes are quite in this current
season as Harvey attempts to defend Morocco Mole or Phil attempting
to pickup Birdgirl. My favourite episode of the series is "Free
Magilla" which stars Magilla Gorilla who decides to press a lawsuit
again Mr. Peebles for unlawful imprisonment.
Definitely one of the best Adult Swim
