For the first time, "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" is presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen. These are excellent, sharp transfers that definitely pop out. Color saturation is good for the often-limited palette, but amazingly, with the very fine detail, everything comes out to be quite vibrant. Still, like past volumes on DVD, noise - and there is a lot of it - remains an issue. Otherwise though, these are fantastic transfers that look quite clean, too. 

 

This sixth volume of "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" features 5.1 Dolby Digital mixes. Dialogue is always clear and easy to hear, and the wacky, random assortment of sound effects often light up the tracks. The effects can be rather discrete, and often make good use of the rears. But like other volumes, it's the show's music that stands out - namely the opening theme song. The theme is mixed well through the channels, and is a bit on the aggressive side. Not the loudest tracks out there, but good for a series of this nature.

Also included are English Stereo Surround tracks, plus subtitles in English and English closed captions through your TV. 
 




The second disc contains all the extras. I'm Pissed features Carl in a series of shorts, namely about football. These shorts total nearly 35 minutes in length. More Funny Pete Stuff appears to be a series of promos that aired on Adult Swim, while Terror Phone is a 13 minute short film. Presented in anamorphic widescreen and Dolby Digital 5.1, this is one odd yet amusing piece that's better left to be seen rather than described. Chances though if you're an Adult Swim fan, you will dig the humor.

ATHF Zombie Ninja Pro-AM Minus The Explosions is a series clips from the Playstation 2 game, but are the M-rated bumpers preceding the clips really necessary? Finally, Radical Axis Presents Radical Axis is another short - around 4 minutes - that presents a tongue-in-cheek look at the studio behind Aqua Teen's animation.

Oh, and inside the box are some stickers. Hoo-ray.

 

If you're a fan of the series, then you've probably already gone out and purchased this set. While the extras aren't much compared to previous volumes, this wacky series still sports great video (now in widescreen!) and audio. But for casual fans of the series, it's still a decent purchase or a good rental.
