Jackson Publick, the Venture Brothers creator, was one of the main writers on The Tick. Furthermore, Tick creator Ben Edlund has done some writing for Venture Brothers.

And that's...

Hey, it was already on TV, which means that you can't complain if you read spoliers somewhere. :D

BTW, I still stand by my opinion that the creators should send the last two episodes to the Emmy jury! Yes, they will probably be disgusted by all that cartoon violence ("The Cleaner") but I will be damned if this wasn't some fucking good television! NOT just "fucking good for a cartoon" or "fucking good for an Adult Swim show", I mean "fucking good television. Period."

The Venture Brothers is easily the funniest 1/2 hr on TV. The Trial of the Monarch is my still favorite episode. How is ti that Brock (Patrick Warburton) doesn't get more work? He's like Bruce Campbell ...insanely funny but not very busy. Doesn't make sense. BTW did anyone see Bruce in Bubba Hotep? Rent it ...it's hilarious.

I really liked 4.01, except for the lame Indiana Jones joke right at the beginning. (Although I kinda liked the payoff line: "I got face all over me.") But I said it before and I will say it again: The Venture Bros always makes me cringe when they start to throw in popculture jokes. It's just lame and has no class. And it's even more painful, because the rest of the show is so fucking good!
And believe me, I really wanna know what happens next.

It wasn't a horrible pop culture reference because it's from Raiders which is a classic and what a great way for Nazi's to die

but yeah it was a great set up to what should be a good season

I have to totally disagree with you on the pop culture references. I think that they are a great part of the show. In fact, it's like a breath of fresh air sometimes when the show is so far up it's own ass.

But the reason they are effective is because they are usually pretty subtle. They aren't played in a heavy handed way (a la Family Guy or the Simpsons). I bet about only 60% of the audience even caught the Raiders allusion. That was pretty clever, I thought. And if they didn't get it, then it was still a cool way for the Nazi's to die. And if they did, it's like a touch of added humor. Great execution, in my opinion.

Great show. Can't wait to see what happens next.

I prefer to think that whatever else it is, it will always be a brilliant satire of comic-logic and lore and boys-own adventure because of it's twisted take on Jonny Quest. Also, every ep is knee deep with pop-culture references; it's essential to the show's appeal, IMO.

In my opinion it's the popculture references that put the show up its own ass in the first place. Without the surprisingly complex and griping story that unfolded since the end of season 1 and the high hit ratio of the not-popculture-related jokes, I wouldn't even bother with watching every single episode.

But the reason they are effective is because they are usually pretty subtle. They aren't played in a heavy handed way (a la Family Guy or the Simpsons).

The Simpsons are still the masters of subtile popculture references. More than once I didn't notice when they did one, before they explained it in the audio commentary.(Of course that doesn't mean that The Simpsons doesn't rub them in your face from time to time.)

I bet about only 60% of the audience even caught the Raiders allusion. That was pretty clever, I thought. And if they didn't get it, then it was still a cool way for the Nazi's to die. And if they did, it's like a touch of added humor. Great execution, in my opinion.

The melting Nazis were one of the most memorable death scenes in one of the most memorable movies ever. So I'm pretty sure that there a way more than 60% (I say 95%) who got it. And it's as clever and subtile as making a bullet time shot when someone starts a jump kick, like in the millions of cartoons and movies who did during the last 10 years, just becuse they thought it was clever or funny to copy an iconic scene from an iconic movie.

Bloo wrote:and usually the pop culture references serve a purpose they just aren't there for the purpose of being there

Yes, there is a good reason why Dr. Impossible and his team look like the Fantastic Four. It's...oh, wait a moment. There isn't. It adds nothing to the story, except for the fact that the audience can point at the screen and yell: "Haha, this is like the fantastic four!" At least there was a good reason why the Scooby Doo characters are in one episode. It was because...no, sorry, they were just there to make the audience point at the screen and yell: "Haha, it's the Mystery Inc. only as adults and acting like famous serial killers."

nad how many people remember the 6 Million Dollar man episode where Steve austin goes after bigfoot and yet that has played a part in what 2, 3 episodes?

It's pretty much the most popular (and often parodied) episode of the 6 Million Dollar Man! And so far there wasn't an important reason why these two had to be there, apart from being a simple popculture joke.

tapehead wrote:I prefer to think that whatever else it is, it will always be a brilliant satire of comic-logic and lore and boys-own adventure because of it's twisted take on Jonny Quest.

It is without a doubt and that's the concept of it and I not just learned to accept it, the creators somehow managed to get the maximum out of that premise. However, I just can't stand it when they dumb their own show down by throwing in simple popculture jokes. It's lazy and feels to me like I would switch the channel in the middle of Breaking Bad, just to watch a few seconds of Robot Chicken. Maybe I'm spoiled, but if you wanna make me laugh with mentioning and making fun of movies, TV shows and comic books, you have to do more than just go: "Look, it's ________________!"

I was heavily amused by episode 4x02. You should think that a joke about a pedophile superhero would get old very quick, but it turned out that some people can seriously stretch it out to around 25 minutes, without making it boring. :D

Last nights ep with the Survived Abortion Dean had me rolling! I love the character progression that Hammer and Publick are making with the show. The Monarch, while still botching shit, seems to have finally developed a true villain edge to him self.

Hank Rebelling after Brock takes off, and Dean following in his fathers footsteps to a failed life of Super Science! (His Dark side of the moon side 2 coma was brilliant) ITs all FANTASTIC!

Even Sgt Hatred has really become a beloved character! I love the idea that a boy hungry pedophile is now bodyguard to the Ventures! ITs just..brilliant!

Another very funny episode, although I got my problems with the aborted Dean. The whole story had a "Treehouse Of Horror" feel, which is of course not necessarily bad, but y'know, there is this "evil twin", who lived all these years hidden in the same house with everybody else, but we not just saw him in this episode for the first, but also for the last time.
Anyway, it was a hilarious episode and I can't wait till next week.

Well, to be honest, I don't think it was THAT awesome. If you try to reference a geek website in your script, you just have to pick AICN, even if you have never been on it. I hate to say it, but Apatow telling the world about DannyGloversDickBlood on Conan was much cooler, because he made a specific reference instead of just saying "It was on Aintitcool".

Episode 1x07 was pure enjoyment. I just love Dr. Orpheus and together with the triad he's even funnier. It was also nice to see a little bit domestic backstory and the beginning of a possible Triana-centric story arc.

Agreed.. I'm really digging how they're expanding the cast and having them, well, Grow as characters.. Dean and Triana closing that door of forbidden love.. Hank kinda getting the idea that they're lame but trying to do something about it. And anything with Dr Orpheus is spot on!

Sad to see it end next week

I re-watched the first two seasons over the last few days. This show is all kinds of awesome (Well, maybe except for "The Incredible Mr. Brisby" and "Viva Los Muertos", which are without a doubt the two worst episodes of the show. Especially "Muertos", which is even for Adult Swim standards too painful to watch.)

I don't know, I like Season 4 so far. It's all about growing up this year and it makes me wonder where this is all heading to. To be honest, I'm scared that Public & Hammer are trying to put this show to an end. Have you heard anything about a 5th season yet?* I didn't!

*I mean a REAL 5th season. Not the second half of Season 4 that is about to air somewhere next year.

Okay, I gotta admit that episode 4.08 didn't really work on a story level. For some reason none of the storylines really payed off, especially not the one about The Monarch getting double crossed. But apart from that it was packed with enjoyable moments. #21 shined alot in this episode. I loved that they came back to his crush on Dr Mrs The Monarch. I was seriously worried that he got over it when he became the geekiest badass ever. And I laughed very hard and long at the return of Speedy! It's also good to know that even Dr Mrs The Monarch seems to get sick of the moppets.
But one thing really distracted me: Am I the only one who thinks that Brock looked kinda weird? I don't know what it was exactly, but I think they changed something with his eyes.
So when will we see the 2nd half if this season? Spring? Oh fuck NO!

It's also good to know that even Dr Mrs The Monarch seems to get sick of the moppets.
But one thing really distracted me: Am I the only one who thinks that Brock looked kinda weird? I don't know what it was exactly, but I think they changed something with his eyes.
So when will we see the 2nd half if this season? Spring? Oh fuck NO!



He had bags under his eyes.. like he had not been sleeping well.

What a cliffhanger ending too!!! I want to know what happens. But it was great to see Brock back and playing a more prominent role.

I thought that was the best episode of the season, probably.

yeah I thought it was a pretty good episode and a heck of a good cliffhanger

I liked the Monarch double cross because that's the sort of stuff that it seems The Guild does and the Manarc is always kind of bucking the guild

I have watched none of season 4 so far, but apparently the show has gone on hiatus 'til August?!

So for that reason I will just wait 'til DVD, because I know I will watch it more than once and gosh darn it these fellas have earned my dollars!

I recently rewatched seasons 1-3, what an awesome and hilarious show.

IGNORE ME!!!

Even though I love Venture Bros., I still feel that they've never topped the pilot episode.
