LB Sees THE VENTURE BROTHERS VERY HALLOWEEN SPECIAL

…And, as a huge VENTURE BROTHERS fan, I have only one word to describe this, um, “very Halloween” event:

Boring.

So boring that I almost wish it’d been terrible because a terrible VENTURE BROTHERS would’ve been much “better” than a dull one. (As in, it would do what good entertainment should: make me feel something, even though that something would be anger)

Highlights:

  • Dean Venture learns that he and his brother Hank are clones many generations removed from the original/first Dean and Hank.
  • The phantasmagorical art for Dr. Orpheus’s magical gathering (see pic above).

Lowlights:

  • Um, there’s no story here, doods. Just some bridging material paving the way for next season.
  • Also, as is common these days on this show, there’s no Brock. Why anyone would take the post popular character on a series out of the mix when there isn’t even a salary dispute utterly astounds me.

The next season of the series itself is scheduled to start in the spring of ’13. Out of respect for the excitement this show generated its first couple of seasons, I’ll try to remember to watch. But it’s kind of like having to remind myself to read any Marvel Comic, or remember that DC Comics still exists.

Sigh…

LYMI,

  1. Is Patrick Warburton too busy? He is on a sitcom, I think. If it hasn’t been canceled. Still, voice work doesn’t take very long. Of course, he’s also doing Family Guy and who knows what else.

  2. Oh no! You’ve named The Unnameable. Now I’m forced to sit in silence for the rest of the day and relive his adventures as the Tick. After which I have to collect my tears and sprinkle them over my Tick action figure in the most solemn of ceremonies. It’s your fault, Robin! Yours!
