By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 22 2007
Format: DVD
One of the funniest shows on Adult Swim is the "Venture Brothers," a deeply warped look at boys' adventure characters like Jonny Quest and the Hardy Brothers.

The second season is basically much the same as the first, building on previous storylines (example: Jonas Jr.) and having various kooky violent adventures for our friends, and hilarious dialogue ("You've come to steal our great ideas. You've been foiled--we have none!"). That is, after they deal with the shocking cliffhanger that the first season ended with-- the death of Hank and Dean, the title characters.

The second season opens with Dr. Venture escaping to various exotic locales, before being dragged home by Brock. A devastated Dr. Orpheus decides to use necromancy to bring the boys back to life, but can't find their souls -- and a zombielike Hank and Dean appear in the doorway.

Oops, it turns out that the boys have a penchant for getting killed, and so Dr. Venture always keeps handy clones in the compound -- and presto, the Venture Brothers have returned, unaware that they ever died. Meanwhile, Dr. Venture has a nasty encounter with a teleportation device, and the Monarch escapes from prison (courtesy of a gay gorilla with a romantic streak).

In the episodes that follow, the newly cloned Venture Brothers (plus Dr. Venture and Brock) must deal with a variety of new and bizarre adventures: a crazy woman who might be connected to the twins, evil Egyptian cults, aliens, Lincoln's ghost, Japanese demons, "Venturestein," villainous double-dates, bad porn, and Baron Ünderbheit mistaking Dean for a girl... and falling in love with him.

Blends all the great references and characters from adventuring and fun from the last half century
hardy boys, Doc Savage, Johnny Quest, big guy and rusty, Superman, Batman, Every superhero from the sixties, Archie Jug-head and the gang; its like a Saturday morning extravaganza that spans three generations!

ever wondered what happened to Johnny Quest? Scooby Doo? and other iconic adventure characters? now you can!

follow two idiotic bumbling brothers in their adventures with their
drug dependent, insecure and utterly bitter wimp father as he battles to live up to The Great Venture Name
their psychotic killing machine bodyguard desperately looking for his next fight now trusted with babysitting
and the exploits of an arch villain sworn to destroy the ventures since...they were in college together??
they solve mysteries, just like our favourite heroes do but fith a flir of apathy and bitter disgruntledness and also problems like;
like how will they pay the rent for their massively expensive and futuristic venture compound?
will the ventures arch villain qualify for the supervillains guild and be allowed to arch villanize the ventures?
will the authorities actually call Dr. Venture Jr. to fix his fathers machines?

thoroughly enjoyable if you love mockery and cliches, terrible bitter and dark humor, and if you miss the heroes of old and from your childhood. they cover so many tv shows I'm surprised howdey doodey hasn't shown up yet!
Their superhero ideas and story is a welcome and refreshing change from all the Marvel and DC craze

Check it our on youtube, and then feel guilty and buy them... on sale...

5.0 out of 5 stars The smartest and most well-planned cartoon out there, hands down. March 24 2007
By A. DOnofrio - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
First of all, let me correct Fernando Gonzales by saying that this show IS still hand-drawn ... only the coloring and inking are digitally done. That's one of the reasons it's a favorite of mine, really.

Now, on to the review. It's not that I didn't think Jackson and Doc would be able to top Season One. It's that I knew they could ... and they STILL blew me away. If you've seen Season One of The Venture Brothers, you -need- to see this one. It's got everything the first had, and more ... the character development, in particular, is absolutely stupendous. The boys at Astrobase Go really know their characters, and they've started to show us just how much.

If you like your cartoons smart, funny, strange, and full of more clever pop culture references than you can shake a shrink ray at, check this one out. I did, at the urging of a friend, while the first season was still out, and I was hardly disappointed. VB is one of the few shows on television I actually care about missing, these days. I'm looking forward to seeing what the special features and commentary have in store, too - the ones on The Venture Bros. - Season One were phenomenal.

So, in the words of Dr. Byron Orpheus... "Yes! GO, Team Venture!"

5.0 out of 5 stars "Homages" are obvious, but the jokes are fast and furious May 13 2007
By Stephen Kaczmarek - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Funnier than the previous season - itself gut-busting- but with its sources more obvious, "The Venture Brothers: Season Two" should please fans of what is arguably Adult Swim's best original series. This season is now completely serialized, with episodes filling in the gaps of both plot and character but adopting the soap operatic form of shows like "24" and "ER." Once again, the scientific world's greatest failed genius, Dr. Thaddeus Venture, takes on the superhero world's greatest failed villains, most notably his arch nemesis, the always Machiavellian and delightful Monarch. Answers to questions from the previous season include how the Monarch gets out of prison, what is the nature of the Venture Brothers' existence (including how they survive all of their deadly pratfalls), and who is the mastermind behind the Guild of Calamitous Intent. The season is more gag-driven, with time paid to both slapstick, such as Dr. Orpheus' repeated, frustrated zapping of an undead enemy that just won't, well, die, and satire, such as the presence of a menacing Henry Kissinger clone (complete with magic murder bag) who nonetheless is a diplomatic romantic, as well as why a company called Franco-American would make Italian food. The ultimate fate of Johnny Quest, whose show "The Venture Brothers" lampoons mercilessly, is a creepy larf, as are some cynical Scooby Doo wannabes. Holst's "Mars" makes it into cartoon history in a way that still has me grinning. The animation and voice work on "The Venture Brothers" is no doubt among the better in the TV business, and J.G. Thirwell's score deserves kudos for sounding original at the same time as it evokes the genre. About the only real weakness is the obviousness of "homages," which, taking a cue from "Family Guy," too frequently seem outright rip offs. You don't even have to look closely to find moments lifted from "You Only Live Twice," "Flash Gordon," "The Empire Strikes Back," "The Shawshank Redemption," "Attack of the Clones," "The Day the Earth Stood Still," "Contact," "Apocalypse Now," and more, though nods to classics like "The Manchurian Candidate" are at least occasionally acknowledged in the scripts. The DVD extras are also nothing spectacular, with the deleted scenes being the more interesting.
5.0 out of 5 stars Season Two May 14 2007
By johnathon abrielle - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Ok... let me start out with what I don't like about Season two: The narrative has gotten a little too soap-opera-y for my tastes. Now there is less emphasis on the action and adventure, and we are made to go from episode to episode with more emotional baggage from the characters. I know that this is usually indicative of sophmoric outings, so I'll let it slide - here's hoping that now that we know (too much) about the characters, we can get back to the witty, slightly retro thrills and fun that was the hallmark of the first season. That season is a must to enjoy this one, although the animation seems to have improved as well as the general art direction. Characterwise, all the favorites from the first season are here, and they are delved into more deeply. And the first episode here is a great, if sometimes draging, answer to the last seson's cliff-hanger question. The opening sequence alone calls to mind a deserved nod to Alan Ball's benidiction/finale of Six Feet Under. From there, we get more explanations, and less action, but if you love the characters, you hang on. Favorite episode would be " Echo Bravo Niner" which treats us to what made season one so enjoyable: Action, irreverence, complete episodic narrative and Brock Sampson naked. That being said, there is still the great writing, although it falls short in the sheer number of the great one liners from the first season. It should be said that the packaging on this set is great - the artwork is wonderful. I would have prefered more more extras - but any fan always does. So why do I still give it 5 stars? Because even when this sputters, it still stands as some of the best work of TV. My ( unsolicited ) advice for season three? More of the action adventure 50s/60s men's magazine, tongue and cheek goofiness that makes the Venture Bros so fun to watch, and that makes you feel so smart for doing so.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Wicked Boss Cartoon on TV May 20 2007
By Joe Soundtrack - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Remember the animated adventure series Jonny Quest - The Complete First Season? That 1964 prime-time series did more to spark this boomer's love of animated action and adventure than anything else on TV in that decade. The Venture Bros., however, manages to trump my nostalgic enthusiasm by revisiting the concept: Both series feature a single-dad scientist travelling the world with a no-nonsense bodyguard and a pair of teenage boys, but the new one found a way to make it work for an adult sensibility: It's screamingly funny. And the new series goes places the Quest Team could never have imagined, like subletting their lab space to a over-the-hill mystic and his teenaged Goth daughter. And The Venture Bros. adds a layer of goofy superheroics, like some demented version of the Marvel Universe, to the mix.

The Venture Bros. stretches its low budget to great lengths not just with inventive visuals, but some of the most densely-plotted, richly-appointed and downright-hilarious writing anywhere on TV. Every episode pays new benefits on repeat viewings, with both verbal asides too quick to catch the first time around and insights and commentary on the genre that sailed over the head of pre-teen viewers in decades past. If you think a walking Robot Eye or hordes of evil henchmen dressed as flying butterflies are simultaneously ridiculous and, well, wicked boss, this is the show for you. I haven't had this much fun since Jonny and Hadji strapped on their jet packs.But now I'm laughing so hard I'm crying!
5.0 out of 5 stars Great show, this has definitely aged along with season ... July 13 2016

Great show, this has definitely aged along with season 1, but it's still solid Venture Bros. Season 3 is when things really get going with this show,
I still catch jokes and storylines from season 2 that I missed the first few times around.
