The secret files of the Ventureverse

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

So this is it. Tonight is the big finale of the longest Venture Bros. season (or pair of half-seasons) ever. It's been a long time coming. A bit of a departure from our previous season finales in a lot of ways, but I won't go into that for fear of spoiling...

This is a bit of an experiment, this hour-long thing. And for the record, we can't thank adultswim enough for letting us expand our creative horizons and make this thing. For us, it was a very liberating experience and helped salvage our souls from the ravages of a difficult season to produce.

A lot of extra time and love went into this episode, from everyone involved (thank you, VB crew!) We certainly hope you enjoy it...and we'll be checking in with you every commercial break to make sure you do.

More news soon...

We Love You,


If I'm not loving Season 4.5 so far! Thanks, guys... looks like you got back on track after 4.0! What a great show!

Just finished watching Operation PROM. So freaking good. You guys really pulled it right back... a real return to form. Just absolutely wonderful! Made my day. You even managed to write for the huge collection of characters and gave them all a voice that didn't sound forced, and felt completely true to them, too. Just incredible.

Venture Bros forever!

Without wanting to reveal any spoilers for those who haven't seen Operation PROM: Is [character] really gone? Did [character] know that [other character] was finally not going to let [character] leave... and that was [character]'s goodbye? Poor [other character]! But a fitting end!

Another question: How were there two Monstrosos?


This was a great season and I loved the ending. Again, thanks for all the hard work.

I have one request for the next season. More Captain Sunshine! Kevin Conroy really did some incredible work. I forgot that he was going to be on the show and didn't recognize him the first time I watched that episode. After I realized who it was I watched two more times, laughing extra hard every time he yelled, "I'm coming for you Wonder Boy!"

Nothing left to believe in.

It feels so bizarre to go back and watch older episodes with Doe and Cardholder in them now that I know they were Guild agents the entire time. Maybe betrayal is too strong a word, but I definitely feel a little dead inside. Seriously though, great twist.

So here's my question. It's about Brock and Molotov. Why was he being so sweet to her? He says, "You and I both know we're never going to kill each other." or something like that, knowing full well that she shot him in the chest and almost killed him back in the season premier. And then Molotov tells him again that she would have no problem killing him, and he still has no desire for revenge. I mean she's the reason he has a steel plate on his chest.

Thanks for all the good times.

Re: Nothing left to believe in.

She's also someone he's flirted with for years. In fact, most of their flirting has been centered around attempts to kill each other. It's not surprising that he doesn't take the attacks personally anymore.

Beautiful. Brilliant. Best stinger ever.
Felt kind of like a series finale. Hope it's not - but the whole VB team has given us fans so much all these years that I imagine many will not begrudge you making this your curtain call.
If it's not a season finale, then please take as much time as you need to produce and release S5, get lots of rest, and eat your vegetables.

the song at the end of operations p.r.o.m. was amazing! anyone know the name of it?

Re: that song at the end!

"Like a Friend" by Pulp.

Watched all 16 episodes overnight on thanksgiving (4.1 dvd...i had to download 4.2 but i seriously WANT that dvd when it hits i will pre-order that shit) Random question:

wonders if Barbera Quantis is a doll all the time, and if she has regular person bits 'down there'....also with fire outfits....does she burn up her clothes or have to take them off first or what? Seriously that would be expensive.

(I seriously think the super heroes and captain sunshine are one of the most interesting bits of season 4 after watching all in one go)

I can honestly say the first time I watched the episode I felt a little unsure about it. I don't know if it was because of how different it was from the previous season enders no epic battle, no major tragedies so I guess it just didn't feel like the ending of a season of The Venture Bros. However, even after I watched it I couldn't get it out of my mind and I even felt a little disappointed after I watched it the first time but still, I couldn't stop thinking about it so I had to go back and re-watch it.

And I'm glad I did because I came to realize that it was, in fact, a great end to a fantastic season. It closed the book on a lot of plots that had been going on in the series to this point Brock and Molotov, Hunter and the OSI, cardholder and doe, 21 and The Monarch, 21 and Sheila, Hatred and Tinyfeet (lol), and 21 and 24. While closing these doors it setup for some great new changes to the series Gary's new life as a good guy, Hunter running the OSI, Dean's first actual step towards being a normal person (I think that was the first time he cursed lol), and looking forward to more Shore Leave myself he's the most bad ass gay man out there he's quickly become one of my favorite characters lol.

All and all it was a great season with an awesome final the venture bros just keep getting better every season. So lads I'm looking forward to the next season and what new changes it may bring. I think Orpheus trying to find a new woman would be a good/funny episode personally speaking heh.

I am constantly amazed by your show -- the story, the humor, and the depictions of everyone. I appreciate your inclusiveness SO MUCH. As a disabled student, I can't tell you how awesome it was to "meet" Triana's boyfriend. I can only say "thank you" for including everyone regardless of race, creed, color, gender, sexual orientation, and bodily ability.

Thank you!

I loved the accusation of "Flat Leaver" from 24. Where in Brooklyn did you grow up, Marine Park?

Were the promos filmed at an undisclosed location or do you feel like tossing some nerd-buck the bar's way by revealing where they were made?

Thanks for the laughs and thanks for the Pulp.
