    I know you guys are out there.

    They're Baaaaaaaaaaack:



    You can catch up on the first episode of season 4, which aired last week, here:

    Season 4 Episode 1 (Note: this link expires on 11/02/09 due to contractual reasons)

    Here is a Q&A with the creators of the show. I thought it would be bad too, but these guys are pretty goddamn funny:

    Re: The Venture Bros. Season 4

    The first episode of this season was fucking bizarre thanks to it pulling a Memento and running two separate plots side-by-side, but one of them in reverse chronological order. I can see how it was necessary to do it that way for the comic book joke to work, but still, strange.

    I enjoyed last night's episode a lot more. Interesting that they brought a character like Captain Sunshine out of nowhere this late in the game, (I'm pretty sure this is the last season,) but the whole episode seemed like a one-shot. Odd that they'd do that immediately after springing the Sphinx plot twist on us in the premiere.

    Re: The Venture Bros. Season 4

    I mean, when hasn't the show had a bizarre first episode of the season? I thought they did a great job of keeping the episode chaotic, while opening up more areas for the plot to explore. And the comic book joke was pretty sweet.

    I didn't know that this was the shows last season. Sources? (I'm not trying to call you out, I'm just curious)
    I was pretty surprised that we didn't get any Brock lovin' in that episode. Then again, they may not want to wear out the new twist. I went into the episode thinking, "what next?", and came out forgetting what the fuck had happened in the first episode. Not that that matters, because really, what actually ever gets accomplished in this show?

    No sources. Hearsay, mostly. Buzz around other forums seems to be that this season is it for the show. I think Doc Hammer has gone on record at one point saying he wants to do something else, but I can't find evidence of that online.

    Episodes one and two were hilarious. I sincerely hope this show doesn't stop for anything, it's among the best comedies on TV today.

    Anyone catch the episode on Sunday night? I just finished watching it on adult swim. I thought it was decent-The King Crimson joke was pretty good-ending was pretty obvious though.

    The faux Yes music was awesome. I'm really surprised they didn't throw a Peter Gabriel/Early Genesis reference into the episode.

    Re: The Venture Bros. Season 4

    It's something they apparently want to move away from in order to try and move on to new projects but, it's a funny show. Season 2 was apparently a rough season for them, you can listen to some of their own commentary on extended edition DVDs and there are one or two episodes that they didn't really even like, and actually that they dislike even watching but, that were eventually included in the season because they needed episodes ("Guess Who's Coming to State Dinner" is I believe Doc Hammer's least favorite, though I'd have to go back and listen to the commentary again to confirm it was his favorite and not Jackson's least favorite). But, if you read Publick's blog, season four is going to be a long one that they're really excited about so even if it's the end at least they intend to go out with a bang.

    Overall, I like the new season so far. The first episode was admittedly convoluted but, the second was much better. And while it's late on the game for new characters, the season is technically 16 episodes long so that's plenty of time for a new character to develop. Apparently they've planned a 16 episode season four that is being divided in two. So there will be more Venture Brothers to be had in the new year so for now all is right in the world.

    I know everyone has a big man crush on Brock, but I gotta say that I'm a big fan of Sgt. Hatred. The Character info on Wikipedia about him is fantastic.

    Completely missed the fact that Venture Bros has been back on the air for Pt. 2 of Season 4. I spent last night watching the first three episodes and they are fantastic. I had forgotten how funny the show can be. Brock and Hunter talking about how sad the strippers tits almost had me crying.

    Words can't possibly express how excited I am for this show to return. Easily my one of my top three favorite shows on tv right now. To say nothing of easily being one of my favorite shows of all time.

    Suffice to say, I'm properly preparing myself for the premiere.
