There is absolutely no way that I could ever give The Venture Bros less than a 5-star rating. The heart and soul that is put into this show makes it so much more personal than any other program I've ever watched. Back when Season V was close to airing, Jackson and Doc (the show's creators) could not stop talking about how Season VI (which they had barely even started) is going to blow everything out of the water. Terrible marketing strategy, but who the hell cares? Season VI is finally here and it's time to catch up on old episodes as well prepare your bank accounts for episodes and merchandise. These guys (and their staff) deserve every dollar you're comfortable parting with. Every. Delicious. Penny.
I have loved The Venture Bros. since the show started all those years ago now, at least it seems like it was a long time ago. Perhaps a lot of that has to do with how long it takes for each new season to be produced, but I have to say that the wait is more than worth it. This is the best season yet, as far as I'm concerned. The move from the old Venture Laboratories facility to a penthouse in New York City has definitely opened the show up to a new cast of characters and a brand new dynamic between the characters we all know and love. The Monarch's transition into a new role is easily the best part though. As Dr. Girlfriend becomes caught up in attempting to run the various day-to-day and larger scale operations within The Guild, The Monarch and 21 have managed to find a new way to occupy themselves and it is playing out in the most wonderful way possible. That, to me, is the most interesting aspect of the new series and the thing I most anticipate seeing each week as the new episodes become available.
Been waiting so lng. If you need to read reviews to decide if you want to watch this, it's not for you. Team Venture oozes mostly awesome, with a little bit of cloudy discharge. But that should clear up with ointment.
I was recently asked if I preferred Archer over the Venture Bros. Much as I am a huge Archer fan, the Venture Bros are a much richer tapestry of comedy and characters. From backstory to subplot lines, the Venture clan is possibly the greatest cartoon since Jonny Quest (and, yes, I know what I just did there). I can't wait for Season 6 to begin!
Season 5 always felt like a rush job, but season 6 has really gotten interesting especially how so many stories interconnect. I love how the venture brothers themselves have changed into new threads and haircuts suggesting they are growing as characters. I was concerned that the setting was moving to new york moving away from the vintage hip compound, but it's interesting enough to go without. As I watch this show, I have to be reminded that all characters eventually fail at being themselves, but that's the crux of the show. Failure is inevitable, enjoy those small quirks where the stars align for you if only for a fleeting moment when you are offing say, an entire collective of hipster villains in a copy-cat legion of doom flying machine.
One of the best seasons yet, the only reason I'm only giving it four stars is because it ended far too soon. If it was a bit longer I'd actually be calling this the best season of Venture Bros yet, however with only eight episodes it feels like a half season and ends without the usual Venture panache. I realize that they're shaking things up but every other season ended with a bang, this one ends with dialogue. Funny dialogue but still dialogue and I can't help but feel that they had more episodes planned but they ran out of time and decided to release them later on like they did with the Gargantua 2 story arch.
I wasn't sure how I'd feel about the move to NYC but I loved it. There was just one episode that I wasn't too crazy about but the rest is awesome. Tanks for Nuthin' was my favorite. The Monarch as the Blue Morpho was just gold. It's too bad the seasons are so short now and they couldn't fit in all the extended characters, but this was still a great season. I know some folks are complaining about the anticlimatic ending but I beleive Doc and JP are doing another hour-long special again a la All This and Gargantua II.
"And why would I need the cast of Godspell for protection?" Gotta love Doc being a dick to everyone.
