Go Team Venture!

“Smurfs don’t lay eggs! I won’t tell you again! Papa Smurf had a fucking beard! They’re clearly mammals!”

I’ve gotta tell ya, it feels so good that eBay and I have reignited our illicit love affair. I keep supplying the funds, and she keeps supplying the goods. So, what did I just get in the mail? Venture Bros Season 1! Yup, it’s bootleg, but it’s totally worth it.

I’ve been on such an Adult Swim kick lately, which is hard to take care of, seeing as how I don’t have cable and all. In the past week, I’ve bought Aqua Teen Hunger Force Seasons 1 & 2, and I just got Venture Bros.

If you’re not watching this show, you’re totally missing out! While, it’s not as absurd-yet-hilarious-if-you’re-stoned funny, like ATHF or The Brak Show, Venture Bros is great if you understand pop culture, and always realized something was amiss in the Jonny Quest camp. If you mixed Jonny Quest with the Hardy Boys, and throw in a couple of dick and masturbation jokes, you’ve got the Venture Bros.

For an added bonus, I found the blog for Jackson Publick, the creator of the show.

After each episode, he went online and posted a lot of behind-the-scenes factoids, so it’s like getting DVD bonus features for free.

Anyway, Season 1 is currently in reruns on Cartoon Network, so check them out. If you want a Season 2, then tell ALL your friends, like I’m doing now, ’cause the show could definitely use the ratings. OK, back to ATHF…

Go, Team Venture!
