Venture Brothers

Having just finished The Venture Brothers Season Two, I can say with no qualifications that for the two of you out there that haven't checked out The Venture Brothers, there's no time like the present (unless you have no time because of all the great comic books you're reading - grin!).

The Venture Brothers
is a very funny cartoon series that has aired on the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming for two seasons (both available on DVD, with the third season airing in June 2008). While The Venture Brothers are mostly an homage to the classic cartoon series Jonny Quest, the show parodies everything from the Fantastic Four to Scooby Do, and is full of all kinds of nudge, nudge, wink, winks that span the pop culture landscape (but not getting the references won't get in the way of your enjoyment of the show). There's funny villain names like Phantom Limb, Sgt. Hatred, The Guild of Calamitious Intent, Molotov Cocktease, and Dr. Girlfriend (a curvy female character with a deep man's voice who's the on and off love interest of Dr. Venture, The Monarch). Everything from the voice acting, the animation, the title sequences, and the music is spot on. My favorite episodes are the ones in which they send up the Fantastic Four, Scooby Do, and the two part season two closing episodes Showdown At Cremation Creek, which features David Bowie in cartoon form (voice impersonated).

Great article and I think it's great that you take time away from comics to catch the Venture Bros. I've disciplined myself to do the same and now that I have a Logitech Revue integrated with my DVR I can do theme searches that also search online for things related to the show I’m looking for. I work for DISH Network so sorry if I get a little techie on you, I'm just excited about my new gadget. Anyhow, hope you've enjoyed the following seasons and GO TEAM VENTURE!

What i ԁo not understood is if truth
be told how you're now not actually much more neatly-liked than you may be now. You're
veгу intelligent. You knoω thus considerablу with
гegards to thіs matter, proԁuced me іn mу opinion іmаgіne
it from а lot of varіouѕ angles. ӏtѕ lіke men anԁ women aren't fascinated until it is one thing to do with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs excellent. Always care for it up!
