This is probably the best news I’ll hear this year. If you haven’t been watching The Venture Bros then you’ve been missing out on a super fun, deceptively complex, show about robots and monsters and super science.
Straight from Jackson’s blogmouth, with a bonus list of the upcoming episode titles and a nice collage of screen-grabs.
Premiered last night at midnight. I grabbed my copy from iTunes (for some strange reason, there are no torrents), but you can watch it the legal way on adultswim.com. That is an order. Things of note based upon my first viewing:
- No Monarch in the season opener. Feels weird.
- I have a feeling the CGC-grader-as-timestamp was someone’s 4am miracle.
- Possibly the longest post-credits sequence in the show’s history?
- I’m expecting for a fan remix that puts the story in chronological order. I guess you’d need a torrent for that, though, and the show is MIA on the main trackers.
- Here’s the real cover to Marvel Comics #1, faithfully reproduced in the episode. ComicsPriceGuide.com says this issue is worth $360,000 for a CGC-graded 9.6 copy.
Overall, though, bravo. This is Jackson and Doc’s growth spurt as storytellers, and we’re all being made witness to it. I can’t wait for more.
Rusty, Hank, Dean, Brock, Dr. Orpheus and Triana. This is pretty great.
