Tonight's the night!
Spark up a bowl of popcorn and set your Tivo to "stun," because at long last The Venture Bros.
returns to the airwaves at MIDNIGHT tonight (EST...I actually have no idea when we're on anywhere else).
And really...set that Tivo...because this premiere is a strange one that might require additional viewings to fully comprehend. But we're terribly proud of it. The only hint I'll give you as to how to mentally navigate this episode's convoluted timeline is: keep an eye on Hank's hair.
As readers of this LiveJournal are well aware, we split our fourth season into two halves of eight episodes each, so this is the first of eight episodes airing consecutively through the fall. The second eight will air some time next spring...because we're making those now. How's that going? Pretty good, actually, though stressful as always. I've just turned in the sixth script, Doc's about to turn in the seventh, and then the two of us will collaborate, as we always do, on the finale. Some at the network have called these our "best scripts yet," so I guess we're doing something right. But you'll have to wait till the spring to judge for yourselves.
In the meantime, enjoy the first eight...
We Love You,
P.S. Go see A Serious Man
and Capitalism: A Love Story
. They're both kind of a bummer, but they're both excellent.
