The Venture Bros. gets Wired

>> Sunday, September 12, 2010

Has our beloved Venture Bros. show breached the 'under-the-radar' status and gained some serious street cred with the geek world? We can only hope. And this article on Wired magazine's blog is a serious sign that it has. Also, much win here.
Quick! What's the most deranged fanboy toon on television? If you didn't answer Adult Swim's The Venture Bros., which returns Sunday to begin wrapping the rest of its transgressive fourth season, then you may need to seriously recalibrate your geek meter.
"Well, I wouldn't call it deranged," The Venture Bros. co-writer and multidisciplinary artist Doc Hammer told in an e-mail interview. "The show is clinically sane. I mean, that's kinda why it speaks to the fanboy."
Whatever gets you through the night, Hammer. Loaded with ballistic action, bloody humor and pop-culture stabs both obvious and obscure, Hammer and show creator Jackson Publick's unrelentingly sharp spoof of a family of mad scientists might broadly appeal across demographics.
Check out the article, because it has a great interview with Doc Hammer.

Also, they've compiled a list of must-see cult TV, which includes Firefly (one of our favorites), that you should check out if you have the time.
But, we digress. Back to the Venture Brothers. As you (probably/should) know, tonight is the season premiere of 4.2, and we just can't wait. It's on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim at 11:30pm. We expect to see you there.
