    It does have to be viewed from the start for full enjoyment as it references itself quite a lot.

    there is a lot of greatness ahead of you....


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,423 ✭✭✭ Roar


    there certainly is! just watched the ¡Viva_los_Muertos! episode from season 2, the Scooby Doo piss take. It was inspired. I laughed from start to finish....

    "THIS DOG TALKS!" :D

    Just after catching up with season 4 myself,amazing show.Its just one of those rare gems of a show that is consistantly brilliant each season.Character development has been really strong especially on Henchman 21.

    Would have been better if they included Dr Henry Killinger this season though.Not even a mention...

    Co-creator Jackson Publick has announced via his blog that he’s just signed a contract to produce at least two more seasons of the show about super-scientists, super-villains, and their super-complex interfamily dynamics, with production on the fifth to begin in June. He also dropped the tidbit that the contract includes a long-form, 60 to 90-minute Venture Bros. special, adding, “Don't ask me when we'll make it, what it's going to be about, or whether it'll be on TV or direct-to-DVD, because we don't have a clue yet.” So, everyone go ask him that and he’ll be forced to figure it out sooner. In the meantime, Publick also revealed that he and co-writer Doc Hammer have been quietly prepping an 11-minute special he describes as “a sort of light-hearted, one-off little aperitif” that should debut later this summer.

    mechashiva!!


    rewatching it again, repeated viewing brings repeated goodness.


  • Registered Users Posts: 476 ✭✭ Burky126


    In case anyone missed this,they recently aired a short mockumentary Venture Bros special about Hank's band in season 4.

    Only finally caught up to season 4 now, I'd left this on the backburner for quite a while. It's complete and utter genius

    To bump this, a Halloween Special airs on Sunday in the States with the 5th series to start in the new year I think.




    As ever, all Bowie references are welcome.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,423 ✭✭✭ Roar


    I would thank this post twice if I could


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,671 ✭✭✭✭ BlitzKrieg


    how did I miss this sizzle reel?



    ???


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,423 ✭✭✭ Roar


    Halloween special was excellent.
    serious lack of brock though :(

    When does season 5 start?


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,671 ✭✭✭✭ BlitzKrieg


    next year

    so dean going emo was not a halloween costume, colour me interested!!! Also love how they can take a mundane sitcom joke and still make it hilarious (dermot having to go ring the door is much funnier with what the show has already revealed)


  • Registered Users Posts: 476 ✭✭ Burky126


    Just three weeks until season 5!



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,423 ✭✭✭ Roar


    I had a big LOL moment at the "Get up Rock ya bum!" line

    Rewatching this at the moment ahead of series 5, just finished season 2 last night.

    Brock Samson is definitely my favourite character. I love Patrick Warburton's delivery of every line, it's just spot on.

    Big fan of Doctor Orpheus as well.

    Really getting excited about season 5 now.

    It returned last night & Adult Swim have put the hour long episode on Youtube

    "I used to want to kiss the girl Gremlin with the lipstick"
    Oh Dean, you poor sap :D

    Welcome back Venture Bros. - it's crazy to think that it's nearly 3 years since season 4! :eek:

    A great first episode, though; I look forward to the rest. I also forgot how this show almost demands to be watched twice. Once for the hell of it, twice to take in all the sight-gags and references (TARDIS in the background!)

    Btw, given this airs on Adult Swim at midnight, technically this thread doesn't belong in Prime Time Cartoon :p


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,671 ✭✭✭✭ BlitzKrieg


    God I laughed so hard through that.


    The show is just so perfect at making call backs to prior events, the line from hank at the end about the watch had me in stitches.

    I'm glad they are taking Dean somewhere interesting. Last season they absolutely turned Hank into the best character in the show with the hank-co episode and now they are spending time with the other venture brother but keeping what makes hank so likeable going.

    Is there *BEST FCKING SHOW ON TELEVISION* forum? cause its the only place to put it

    "Why do you still have tits?"


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,671 ✭✭✭✭ BlitzKrieg


    only venture bros can do batman, Frankenstein and Apocalypse Now all in one episode and make it work.

    Another brilliant episode.

    Hank is now my second favourite batman (after kevin conroy of course :D)


  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 27,161 Mod ✭✭✭✭ pixelburp


    Not quite as awesome as last weeks, but worth the price of admission for Bat-Hank alone :D

    Guy can really kick ass when he wants to; I wonder if we'll see Hank and Dean slowly discover themselves a bit more this season. Dean's the more obvious example - even if he's still tinkering in science - but Hank is quite capable in his own way.

    Oh and I don't think it's a wild guess to suppose Sgt. Hatred's dream will be fleshed out in coming episodes :)

    so many genius lines.

    "This isn't a parachuuuuuttteeeeee"

    "he ain't just gone off the reservation, he's opening his own damn casino!"

    Also, Hank's narration had me in stitches.
