I thought this was about a group of venture capitalist brothers from New York. I am so out of the loop.

Not my best joke, but I had to swat away first-posters on the quick. Like that one.

Hank and Dean, dead? This can't be possible. I still say it's a ruse of some sort.
There was a pretty good hint about how this episode will turn out in "Are You There God? It's Me, Dean."
June 25, 2006, 1:37 a.m. CST
Oh Hank and Dean died for sure. Dr. Orpheus shedding a tear over breakfast during the opening sequence really made me laugh for some reason. And is it too much for me to hope to actually get to see Crime-O-Dile sometime in a future ep?

been waiting for this longer then chappelle season 3

So before anyone asks this question AGAIN, it's pretty simple really. Doc Venture has a twin, albeit deformed, brother now. However, I do hope they regrow Hank and Dean, or however they were created, those boys were hilarious.
June 25, 2006, 4:49 a.m. CST
"You eviscerated and sodomized Vince Neal on national television." I'm not gay, but damn if King Gorilla ain't my type of simian. Thought the ep. was rather inconsistent, but when it soared, oh man.
June 25, 2006, 7:08 a.m. CST
"I am not going to flush the toilet!! Let them see the fury of the Monarch!!" I never gave this series much thought...then, my friend told me to get the first season and watch them all before passing judgment. Im just into the second disc, and I have laughed out loud on every episode. Thats rare for me. Now I'm hooked. Venture Bros., and Justice League season 2 are must buys right now, if you havent gotten them yet.
June 25, 2006, 10:27 a.m. CST
Here's hoping we get a Hadji replacement for the late Hank and Dean. But my bet says Orpheus does some necromancing to bring back Hank and Dean in some new incarnation....
June 25, 2006, 12:27 p.m. CST
I laughed harder at that episode than just about anything else I've ever seen on TV, with the possible exception of that numbnuts accidentally blowing himself up with the dynamite on "Lost." There's a montage about 2/3 of the way through the episode that literally had me wiping tears of laughter out of my eyes.

June 25, 2006, 2:33 p.m. CST
You obviously don't really watch the show or are just making a really lame joke. Which is it?
June 25, 2006, 3:05 p.m. CST
Best part of the "many deaths" montage. Although, why are we having a talkback on the day of the repeat airing? Why not for the friday premieres?
June 25, 2006, 5:41 p.m. CST
is a great show. I'm just glad they finally got some new episodes out. Hopefully it won't be 2 years between seasons anymore.
June 25, 2006, 6:24 p.m. CST
Because I must have misheard the Cartoon Network publicist. I thought he said it returned Sunday. Ironically, I had this written Thursday night but waited until wht I thought was the day of the premiere to post it. I am stupid.
June 25, 2006, 7:15 p.m. CST
Being Herc means never having to say your sorry. Also, it means having a weird fascination with the WB.
June 25, 2006, 7:20 p.m. CST
Venture Bros. is the shit. Go Team Venture!
June 25, 2006, 8:18 p.m. CST
The BROADCAST premiere of The Venture Brothers season two is tonight on Adult Swim tv, but it premiered ONLINE on Adult Swim Fix last friday.
June 25, 2006, 8:40 p.m. CST
Suck on that...Someone!
June 25, 2006, 10:11 p.m. CST
I want that punch-drunk ex-middleweight champion to get his own spinoff show.
June 25, 2006, 11:04 p.m. CST
The show works better when there's not really a coherent plotline. Now that all's back to normal we should be good.
June 26, 2006, 1:12 a.m. CST
I'm gonna watch that episode again at 2:30 am, because it bowled my ass over. Rock on, Team Venture!
June 26, 2006, 1:57 a.m. CST
But tonight had no Deadwood talkback, no 4400 talkback, and no Entourage talkback. I don't know if you were getting a Dirty Sanchez or Rusty Trombone or whatever, but you could have given a talkback or two. I mean, if I wanted to read about gay cartoons, I would hang with my 12 year old nephew. Poor form Herc, poor form.

when I saw Dr. Venture and his companion in the "Hungry Like the Wolf" sequence. "Tarzipan" joins "companda" in the Venture Lexicon of Laughter. And all hail King Gorilla, my new favorite secondary character! There's a definite paucity of gay gorillas on TV, and K.G. fills the void quite nicely...even if he can't do so with the Monarch.
June 26, 2006, 7:39 a.m. CST
cuz I don't remember the boys dying.
June 26, 2006, 7:57 a.m. CST
Just kill 'em off and bring 'em back again, just like nothing happened. Loved the Monarch getting all pissed off at everyone bailing on his escape attempt and is it just me or is Doctor Orpheus a better parent to the boys than Dr. Venture? Of course, Helper is probably a better parent to the boys than Dr. Venture...
June 26, 2006, 8:16 a.m. CST
was the greatest part ever.
June 26, 2006, 9:28 a.m. CST
I know theres a whole season coming, but I was disapointed in the lack of Molotov Cocktease in the episode. And the slightly softer feeling Brock. I mean not a single rage-fueled killing spree? C'mon!
June 26, 2006, 9:39 a.m. CST
I hope so, I wasn't really liking the rest of the show without them - except all the Monarch/Prison scenes. That was some funny ass shit.
June 26, 2006, 9:49 a.m. CST
The animation felt a bit.. off. Still hilarious tho'.
June 26, 2006, 10:24 a.m. CST
Rockin' season premiere, shame I don't have Cartoon Network to actually watch these.

Didn't realize how much I missed the Monarch until I saw him planning his escape. "And don't come back here saying it's a gorilla suit." Fooking hilarious man. The fake wings he made too. Plus seeing all of the ways the boys have died over the years was great. Doc and Brock talking about when they tried out mustaches for awhile. Man am I glad it's back.

This is only the first episode. This is setting everything up. Brock's gonna kick unholy ass this season and we all know it. Besides I was hoping Hank and Trianna would get more time to become closer. Because that would be the greatest wedding reception ever.
June 26, 2006, 12:56 p.m. CST
In an interview with the creator of the show that was on suicide girls (I found the link from a previous VB TB), he said that the original concept for the show would have the boys killed every episode. This was in the mid-nineties, so once South Park did the Kenny thing the idea was scrapped.
June 26, 2006, 12:57 p.m. CST
Going from season ones finale to the first episode of season two was kind of odd. The animation seemed off (as another poster mentioned) and for some of the characters the voices were wrong. In fact I thought the audio was funky through the entire episode. I also thought it didn't seem to flow like the episodes in the first season. They had a lot going on in this one and it made it seem kind of crowded and rushed. That's what I'm thinking the problem was because when it hit it was perfect.
June 26, 2006, 4:14 p.m. CST
In case you missed it this past weekend, looks like the whole ep is out on Adult Swim Fix for the moment. No CN Channel required. Enjoy.
June 26, 2006, 5:24 p.m. CST
d'oh. Still, very good episode. Doc's desire to run away from his problems made little sense, looking back; and Jonas sure turned into an alright optimistic dude since the last time we saw him, but other than that, good stuff. Can't wait to see more of The Monarch.
June 26, 2006, 6 p.m. CST

June 26, 2006, 6:54 p.m. CST
I said IF I WANTED TO. Learn to read, jackass.
June 26, 2006, 7:05 p.m. CST
Yea, Rusty's behavior in the beginning is a bit confusing giving the replacibility of the boys. My guess would be either that maybe it takes a while for the clones to regrow, so the transition period is hard on him. Or maybe he was just using it as an excuse to run away and hide from his shitty life. Juniors behavior is much less inconsistant, since from the time that Rusty forgave him he was only onscreen for another few minutes; his character was barely established.

So then you're saying you want to hang out with your 12 year old nephew and read about gay cartoons? Seriously, what exactly is "gay" about Venture Bros. other than a few gay jokes now and then? If you can't see the humor in a sentient, gay gorilla then you are pretty humorless.
June 26, 2006, 7:55 p.m. CST
Man, you really can't be this dumb. IF I WANTED TO. IF. IF. IF. What don't you understand? I didn't say shit to you. You attacked me. Then I asked you to learn how to read. And now I'm done. Quit picking fights on internet threads. You look like an ass.
June 26, 2006, 8:07 p.m. CST
and was looking for other ways to forget his troubles. Or maybe he was just running from Dr. Orpheus' never ending sobbing, haha.
June 26, 2006, 9:16 p.m. CST
Hmm... VanLingoMungo, you've posted SEVEN times on an Internet msg. board for a cartoon that you think is for gay 12-year-olds. I'd say it's YOU who looks like an ignorant ass... with too much time on his hands. *********** Anyway, I liked the premiere, but I was a little underwhelmed. Good to have them back, though!
June 27, 2006, 2:18 a.m. CST
by Hairy Nutsack
No I really am this dumb, I don't understand, please explain it to me again. Why is it more fun to read about gay cartoons with your 12 year old nephew instead of watching a non-gay show like the Venture Bros.? I'm not picking fights, I'm just really curious about your relationship with your nephew. Does your sibling know you're corrupting their son with your gay cartoon literature? Say, where exactly do you buy gay cartoon literature anyway?
June 27, 2006, 2:14 p.m. CST
and that opening montage never gets less brilliant!! The emotions displayed, and my (surprising) responses to those emotions (Dr. O crying gets me, I don't know why) almost makes me wish the brothers were really gone, so I didn't feel like a douche for being kinda sad for a second. Also? The Monarch looking pensively at the sky from behind bars, then EATING the butterfly that lands on him, says everything about the Monarch that needs to be said. He may be a pathetic wannabe-supervillain, but he's a romantic at heart. One more thing? The Monarch's reading of the line "They don't have TINY MEN in their employ!" F-ing cracks me up!! Love this show.

Actually this episode did seem a lot gayer than most of them. NTTAWWT. Also, the best thing ever shown on television. But I exaggerate for hyperbolic effect. So the Hankendean we knew were #14 - and I counted and they actually did show us how all 13 previous sets died. Running With Scissors! I wonder exactly how being converted into static in a tragic TV repair accident counts as a super-power, but then the guy did wind up in prison. "Do you even have blood?" *** i would have liked to have seen this go up earlier. I was so bugged that there was no Ventures talk-back on Friday after I watched it twice on lone that I didn't come back here until late Tuesday. - Oh, for that gay guy who's showing his nephew porn, here's a clip you might enjoy: http://tinyurl.com/j5u2p
