Post Venture Brothers
My new favorite cartoon - Venture Bros. - is back with season 2. Does anyone else watch this magnificent cartoon? I am borrowing the season 1 DVD from a friend so I can get caught up...

I watch it faithfully. And I just found out it's got goth cred in spades. Erik Hammer ("Doc Hammer") writes and does voices for it, as has his ex wife, and they are both from Mors Syphilitica, who I am still disappointed about breaking up.

Basically, it's about super heros and super villains - except most of them are pretty lame. And what they do is just treated like a job... they go to weapons conventions and mingle when they're not 'working', recruit henchmen, etc. It's a difficult show to describe.

Here is their website, which is neato: http://www.venturebros.com/

Dr. Girlfriend: Sweetie, isn't that the guy from Depeche Mode?
The Monarch: Oh, no way! Where? Holy crap, he's with a girl!
Dr. Girlfriend: Oh yeah, that guy is totally straight. I saw a whole thing about him on the VH1.
The Monarch: But he's the guy from Depeche Mode. It's impossible.
Dr. Girlfriend: Straight.
The Monarch: Come on! He's in Depeche Mode!

Yea, if you didn't like the Tick you probably wouldn't get into VB's.

I got into the VB's once
The doctor gave me a shot in the butt and it cleared right up

I can dig where GCHE is coming from
Although I love stuff like the Tick and Venture brothers I really hate all of those dumbasses who incessantly quote all of the "wacky, off kilter jokes"
Stay at Rocky Horror you dorks and quit taking up all the tables at Perkins

Rock, you ALWAYS insert wacky, off-kilter jokes into your everyday conversation. I have to call shenanigans on that comment!

I like what I've seen.

I enjoyed the Tick, and I enjoyed Johnny Quest.

So it's like mixing all my candies in one bag.

I remember being impressed with Johnny Quest once when a female character attacked Hajii and he defended himself (something you never would see in the original)
I narrated the scene with -"Bitch, don't step to Hajii and not expect to get the smack down"

I hate ATHF as well
It just tries to be too cutesy for my tastes

For some reason I love the Aquateen.

Maybe that tumor is more malignant than they told me.

Even henchmen need dramatic background music.

Jarboe did one of the voices in one of the last episodes ("Guess Who's Coming to State Dinner"). She's the club soda loving maid.
