Reason 1 I love the Venture Bros

Venture Bros is back, baby! Season 3 had its first episode last night. It was awesome. It doesn't make much sense if you haven't seen every episode before (or at least, most of them, or the ones that deal with the Guild), but if you have, then it is really great. Still pretty good without those things, as you can kind of make them out as you go.

For those of you who don't know the Venture Bros, it is a cartoon on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim, starring two brothers, their super-scientist father and his bodyguard as they live in the crazy world of super-science. Here:

This is from Season 1, ep 8, titled "Ghosts of The Sargasso." A lot of Venture Bros takes from Jonny Quest (the kids, father and scientist), and the father (the boy in the above) was once a member of that team like Jonny, but grew up to be a scientist like his dad. It is crazy and every episode has at least (some more, some many more) one moment of laughing out loud. It is that great. Plus, any show that references David Bowie multiple times (like the above, in the episode "The Incredible Mr. Brisby," or the season 2 finale episodes, which is a two parter) is great.
