The second episode of the fourth season of The Venture Bros. airs tonight on adultswim. Entitled "Handsome Ransom," it was the first script we wrote for this season--back when we still thought we'd be doing 13 episodes straight through and starting production immediately after pre-production of season 3 finished.

...Which also means it was written when Michael Jackson was still alive...



Too soon?

Anyway, those who were confused or annoyed by last week's convoluted premiere can relax...this one's a pretty straight forward comic ransom romp. It picks up a little while after the events of the premiere, and it's got The Monarch in it. So you won't have to think too hard and you can watch it all regular and just enjoy it and stuff.

Assuming the network actually shows both halves of it.


We Love You,

Kevin "Batman" Conroy guest stars in this episode, and he was a total joy to work with. A real pro who was game for whatever we threw at him and, if anything, almost got a little too into the role.

Ah, forgot this in the earlier comment...

I've been wondering about this for awhile, what with the "v-pods" we've seen a couple of times, but now the distinctive chime made at Helper's reboot has made me too suspicious and I just have to ask.

Is Venture Industries the Ventureverse's incarnation of Apple?

I doubt it. Jonas Junior was in an iPod billboard remember?

But did the billboard actually say iPod/have the Apple logo, or was it just "in the style of"?

If it is the latter, the billboard could well have been for the iPod-like device the two Guild switchboard operators were fooling around with (which if I recall correctly looked just like an iPod, but with the Venture logo on the roundabout touch pad).

Of course, I reserve the right to have remembered incorrectly! =)
