And discuss :p

No I have a quick question though :/

This series was launched in 2013. But why now all of the sudden did it become viral?

Because it got launched on Adult Swim, to a relatively limited audience, and only really gained popularity by word of mouth from a devoted fanbase.

It's the kind of show that initially grates your tits, with seemingly shoddy animation and voices like nails on a chalk board... I initially dismissed S01E01 as mindless garbage, pandering to the same American idiots that enjoy reality television...

But if you keep at it, and catch how clever it is in terms of seemingly unimportant details forming part of the story arc, pop culture references and the underlying social commentary, it really gets under your skin.

It's utterly brilliant.

And yes, this... the sensation it's now become has been mostly due to memes sparking curiosity about the show.

The epic cliff-hanger ending of season 2. That was a game changer for me. There were some deep and generally good moments, but that clinched it for me

Just started watching it on Netflix...or Showmax...can't remember.

After every episode I walk away saying "WTF did I just watch?", but somehow I'm always looking forward to watching the next one.

"Take it for granite" would be a great slogan for a kitchen counter company, but I believe the word you're looking for is granted.
Shut up and watch the series - that's a joke from the latest episode.

I preferred Supafly’s method of education.

You would

Until you realize it somewhat spoils the first half of the episode when you eventually get to watch it.

There are a lot of adult-themed topics that they cover in the episodes.
Not full-on social commentary style like South Park but still enjoyable.

Admitting their daughter was an accident to her face has so many layers of messed-up rolled into it (just one example of many).
