The Venture Brothers.

I just finished the Venture Bros. season finale. I'm afraid if I start talking about it too much, I'll only get super-excited and not be able to stop (it's a problem). So I'll just say I loved it. A lot.

There's a lot of VB stuff on this blog, but I wanted to make something to celebrate Season 4. So here's a sort of nod to the early days, when the twins were mostly just dopey boy adventurers. Dean and Hank are a lot more than that now, of course. VB has always been a very funny show, but the evolution of the characters and their whole universe is really incredible. Above and beyond what one might expect from an animated series.

... You should probably just watch it if you haven't already. And start from the beginning. Otherwise you're just askin' for trouble.

Updated: I felt bad because there are a bunch of people ending up on this post after searching for season finale music info. So here is the list of jackets Shallow Gravy sings about before dialogue kicks in... Yellow. Strait. Smoking. A full metal. Flak. Leather. Varsity. Also, the song that plays at the end of the episode is Pulp's "Like A Friend." And yes. I lost my shit when it started. Maybe even more than when I heard the band's getting back together in 2011 (YESSSS).
