The Venture Bros.: Season One

The Venture Bros.: Season One


Right so you've got super-scientists, super-villains, robots, henchmen, bodyguards, girlfriends, lairs, labs, well you get the picture. They're all here. And they're not exactly what you're used to. They're not so super. They goof. They have rules. They talk their way out of trouble using said rules. What's going at home is often more trouble than their enemy could ever be. They long for enemies if they don't have one.

To really appreciate this series you'll be best served having a working knowledge of comics and cartoons at least. It's not 100% necessary, but there are a lot of subtle (and not so subtle) gags that you'll only really "get" if you know of certain superheroes, or movies, etc. It's could still be funny even without knowing those things, it's just funnier if this sort of thing is spoofing your regular genres.

One thing to be aware of, if you're a purist who wants to watch in order including the pilot - it's on Disc 2 under Extras, something we didn't realize until we got to Disc 2 since we never did bother to read what the extras were. 5/5 Stars
