It's an old one. Skull Island originally aired on 10/30/2004. I agree though... great show. You must enjoy Harvey Birdman too.

Go Team Venture!

A new season of VB along with the news that Futurama is coming back is the best an Adult Swim fan can hope for. Now all I need to hear is that they want to pick up Korgoth of Barbaria for a season. *crosses fingers*

Brock Samson is great. One of my buddies went as him for halloween (he had to fashion a mullet wig). If I can find the pics I'll post em.

"Are you sure you're gonna be okay, Brock? There's an awful lot of them."

I'm torn between making fun of this thread and actually watching the show to see if it sucks or not.
Family Guy is my favorite show on television right now so it makes me open to the idea that cartoons arne't just stupid crap for kids.
Then again, you're probably a bunch of stinking anime nerds so I guess I'll just fall back to the ridicule.

So there are no new threads for this show, but I figure bump one up to let you guys know There is a special Monday Night:

Also, since there was nothing on TV, I rewatched all of the Venture Bros this month. Here are my thoughts:

Holy shit does this show get its tone and theme correct, right off the bat! Not counting the horrible false start the secret pilot was. The first episode of the series nails everything perfectly.

Season 1-3 are damn near up there with Simpson's seasons 3-8 for me. Just every episode is so well done.

Seasons 4 and 5 is the point where they have done so much world building that they go up its own ass with it. The season 4 premier is especially confusing because it jumps back and forth in 3 timelines. This was my 3rd time watching it and only now do I understand all the plot points.

Stephen Colbert blowing off this show was a blessing in disguise. They brought on Bill Hader to do the voice of Mr. Impossible instead of Colbert. First, he gets the voice pretty damn close. But most importantly, he gives the show another talented voice actor that can do multiple characters. If there is one problem with the early seasons is that there are too many characters voiced by the same guy that sounds similar to other characters. "Why does that FBI agent sound just like Dr. Girlfriend?"

Season 5 really wasnt worth the wait. 3 years between season 4 and season 5 did not help the creative process. With the exception of the Guild Nightclub episode, there isnt a "great" episode in the bunch.

Well worth my time to watch it all though. :)
