Venture Bros.

The Venture Bros.' James Urbaniak interviewed in a bathtub

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 8th 2009 8:30PM
Yes, you read that right. Someone took the time to sit down and penetrate the delightful, twisted mind of actor/writer James Urbaniak from The Venture Brothers... in a bathtub.

It was part of comedian Sara Benincasa's web chat series "Gettin' Wet" in which noted humorists and comedians sit down to have a probing and in-depth discussion of their pathos and the process of artistic achievement and creation... in a tub. If you haven't figured out yet that this actually takes place in a literal bathtub filled with soapy water, then no one can really help at this point.

The Venture Bros: ORB

Venture Bros.
(S03E11)
We haven't seen the entire Venture family really buckle down and do some hardcore adventuring since last season's "Twenty Years to Midnight". This was more of a Da Vinci Code-esque adventure though, in the sense that it also involved mysterious paintings, secret codes, and weird albinos. This was one of the best episodes of the season, finally setting us on the right path to understanding many of the strange revelations from the flashbacks. Plus, it has set the perfect tone for our inevitably epic two-part season finale, starting next week.

Finally, some Venture Bros. footage from Comic-Con - VIDEO

Jackson and MikeI was a sad little Venture Bros. fan at the peak of convention season this year, as I was unable to attend last month's Comic-Con. My pain was somewhat soothed by the presence of the Internet though, for I knew Flickr and YouTube would surely erupt with fan-documented material, with which I could experience the con vicariously.

As it turned out... not so much. Despite scouring the blogosphere, I didn't find much in the following days, apart from a few photos of my friends in Dr. Girlfriend get-ups posing with Jackson Publick and a brief report of one dirty joke from the panel. Well, probably because they could sense my silent fan-sobbing from across the country, the lovely folks from Adult Swim online have directed us to this video from the panel with Jackson Publick and Mike Sinterniklaas. It's edited down from a longer event, but there are still plenty of good moments.

The Venture Bros: The Lepidopterists

Team Venture
(S03E10) The world of heroes and villains has a long, intricate history and with that comes lots and lots of cliches. Like, I mean, a lot of cliches. It was cool to see the show take on itself, making fun of things from invulnerable redshirts to protagonist/antagonist banter. Plus, we got to see giant robots and death rays, so all in all, it was a good day had by all. Also, "The Lepidopterists" pulled us back to the post-credits clip from "Tears of a Sea Cow". So, in case you're confused, all this took place after the Museum party and that's why there was no mention of the Monarch in the last episode. Got it? Good.

The Venture Bros: Now Museum -- Now You Don't! - VIDEO

by Annie Wu, posted Jul 28th 2008 9:22AM
Venture Bros.(S03E09) This was a real treat for all of those that love some old-school Team Venture action ("Action, action, action!"). In this episode, we found past and present protagonists and antagonists meeting for the first time in decades. The action-packed cold open featured Jonas Venture, Sr. as a terribly unconvincing Asian stereotype sporting a nipple on his face. You know, that same old story. Of course, this far-fetched disguise was just another part of the Team's plan to bring down Scaramantula and his Fraternity of Torment, a sort of a not quite as impressive Guild of Calamitous Intent boasting the powers of Brainulo and a young Manotaur.

The Venture Bros: What Goes Down, Must Come Up - VIDEO

Firestarter(S03E07) Now, that was a Venture Bros. episode. In fact, throw the cake and eat some confetti, because I think I may have a new addition to my top five favorite episodes. After my less-than-confident review of last week's episode, "Dr. Quymn, Medicine Woman", this was a very pleasant surprise. The episode didn't have any real ties to previous ones, but we got the chance to explore yet another part of the compound and some dark secrets of the original Team Venture.

Venture Aid 2006: Merry Christmas!

by Annie Wu, posted Dec 25th 2006 11:57AM
Venture ChristmasEvery year since 2004, The Venture Bros. have released fantastic covers of Christmas classics on the Internet to spread some holiday cheer. It has become quite the fun tradition for us fans to look forward to! The first year, The Monarch and Dr. Girlfriend gave their rendition of "Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy", and last year, The Monarch returned with his trusty henchmen, Numbers 21 and 24, for Dolly Parton's "Hard Candy Christmas". This time around, a whole slew of Venture characters have chimed in to recreate the Band Aid single, "Do They Know It's Christmas?"

Since a few of the actors (actors, not singers) voice multiple characters, there was no way for them to sing the song all together. Well, where the song lacks in harmony, it makes up with Christmas spirit, right?

Annie's Fall TV Schedule

by Annie Wu, posted Sep 14th 2006 10:11AM
The Venture Bros.So busy. All the time. So much to do. Little room in schedule for TV. Not even funny. Too busy to even write full sentences. Alright, really, I don't have much time for TV. Between school and homework and trying to beat the daily crowd of starving students to the cafeteria so that I actually have some sort of substance lining my stomach everyday, I have no choice but to neglect my television. My days are rather unpredictable and hectic, but I'm usually free by 10. Usually. I always make time for The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, because Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are my main men (and because I kind of need to watch The Daily Show... seeing as how that's my job and all), and Project Runway (it's the art school student's idea of watercooler talk fodder), but other than that, I don't religiously follow any other running show. There are some programs that I enjoy watching and try to catch as often as I can, but I don't really bother to tape them.

Yeah. I said "tape". I'm such a cutting-edge youngster, with a TV/VCR combo set. Wanna see my Sega Genesis?
