Saul of the Mole Men

Show Summary

On a STRATA mission to the center of the Earth, most of the STRATA Geologist team dies, leaving Johnny Tambourine, Robot, and Saul Molone, the leader. In the center of the Earth Saul finds a civilization of Mole Men, and nearly destroys it. Featuring The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, and Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends fame. Seen as a possible Land of the Lost parody.

Created by Craig Lewis. Directed by Tom Sterns. An Adult Swim Halloween block of shows that consisted of only canceled programs aired an episode of the series and therefore confirmed its cancellation. An [adult swim] and William's Street show.

  • Great show that no one got.

    9.0
    I just don't get it sometimes, once in a while there comes a show with that great balance of varying humors (gross-out, witty, slapstick, absurdist) that you wonder how they even got it done. Saul of the mole men is definately one of those shows and sadly it's also one of those shows that died a painful, painful death of people not getting it.



    the show it a deft parody of those wonderful shows of the sixties and seventies which, great they were, can easily be parodied to ungodly ends. the acting is bad, the special effects are bad, the plot is insane, convoluted and stupid and all shoved together, yet it's intended as such and deftly parodies all of the nice Sci-Fi shows of that bygone era. It's sad really that people watch things, not because they are truly entertained by such shows, but because it is popular and edgy. It's sad that this show wasn't given a second season (though I believed the creators knew that from the get-go.) yet Robot Chicken continues it's dick-n-fart joke domination. Well, EVERYONE can get fart jokes though right?moreless
  • It's a pretty good show, but poor effects.

    It's a pretty interesting show. It is disgusting at times, but heck, it is a pretty good show. The effects are poor(they walk in place on a scrolling backround for the walking effect) and the crawling, climbing, and falling poses Saul does are kinda odd. I do crack up at parts, though. I tried to watch it every Sunday night, but missed some episodes due to a movie on some other channel and vacation. Thank goodness they are airing old episodes every day, or I would've been confused later on. Well, overall, it's a pretty interesting and good show. Hope to see more.moreless
  • A slight change of pace from the usual Adult Swim offering.

    5.9
    This is an OK show so far. The entire premise is supposed to be a homage to Krofftesque Saturday morning adventures, right down to the dated effects and hoky costuming(intentionally so here), and in that aspect it's fairly effective. The titular protagonist, Saul Malone, is very likable and wholesome, and I'm interested to see how his character will progress throughout the series' run. Johnny Tambourine steals the show so far with his singing and freakishly idiotic appearance. Overall, it's not the best thing airing on Adult Swim, but I'd say it's in the middle of the current line-up's quality spectrum. It's definitely better than Craig Lewis' last episode for Foster's.moreless
  • Kinda grows on you...

    This is one of those shows that when I first saw it I thought it was the dumdbest thing ever. However on watching it again on Adultswim.com I think it deserves a second look. It has a certain 'made in your basement by 10 year olds' charm about it. I would rank it in the top 50% on adultswim, and the top10% of the crap thats on the regular networks. I mean come on, they are gonna make a reality show about horse jocky's on discovery!!! I would rather watch Saul on a continuous loop than watch that crap. Wouldn't mind seeing a second season.moreless
  • Another show I would have given a ZERO rating, but the scale won't let me be that mean.

    1.0
    This is another example of what the minds behind Adult Swim thinks is funny. These people need to stay off the crack pipe. I mean this guy is suppose to be on the only human on this planet alone...then this woman shows up..Where does she come from wtf? Is he on crack? Is this why he sees this woman? Do I have to be cracked out to get this show? Somebody pass the pipe...and don't act like you ain't got one Adult Swim. If it wasn't for all of the sexual references this show could be showed to little kids...but then I think they'd have to be stoned too. Anybody know what drug goes good in chocolate milk? It suggest the writers watch this show without the purple haze around their heads. They all need to be taken out and shot.moreless
