After a lengthy hiatus, Adult Swim is finally putting Venture Bros. back on the air. Starting this Sunday, April 6th, at 8pm Eastern/Pacific time (adjust for your timezone accordingly) you can catch a one-hour block of episodes from the very beginning, season one. The second episode in the block will also reair the next morning (or later that night, depending on your sleep schedule and employment status) at 5am. You can always stay on top of the schedule (except when I forget to update it) by checking the official Mantis-Eye Venture Bros. schedule. Official for this site, but not Adult Swim, that is. They have their own, but it’s got a bunch of other shows on it so it’s harder to figure out.
Sometime earlier today the art and release date for the Venture Bros. season five DVD/Blu-Ray was released! You can check out the art below (click for a bigger version) and the release date is currently March 4th, 2014 for both formats. All season five episodes will be included, as well as "From The Ladle To The Grave…" and "A Very Venture Halloween" (technically part of season five’s arc). You can also pre-order the DVD version on Amazon for a mere $17.49. No specific word on any extras just yet, though there will be the usual episode commentaries from Jackson and Doc.
Adult Swim has posted a video of (most?) of the Venture Bros. panel from NYCC earlier in the month! Since we’re in between-season limbo there’s no new footage or anything, but plenty of Jackson and Doc. If you’ve got 45 minutes, you should check it out!
Or more accurately a discount on your very own Hankbuck towel. The Venture Bros. crew at Titmouse are offering up a Hankbuck towel for a mere $25. However if you have any Hankbucks (one came with each Shirt Club shirt) print out this form on Astrobase Go!, fill it out and mail it in with your Hankbucks for a discount. Each Hankbuck is worth one buck off the towel, meaning if you were a subscriber the towel can be yours for only $15!
Less than a week later Adult Swim has put up video of the Venture Bros. SDCC panel held last Friday. The panel was series creators Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer along with Brock Samson himself, Patrick Warburton. Come for the discussion about Patrick’s son cosplaying as Shoreleave, stay to admire Jackson and Doc’s most excellent speedsuits:
And secondly we have the “next time on Venture Bros." sequence from the end of last week’s episode. So if you’ve already seen it, that’s what it is. Still, it might hold you over for the next couple of days. Maybe.
YouTube curation site What’s Trending? has an interview with Jackson and Doc that they conducted yesterday live from San Diego Comic-Con. Doc reveals his secret bowel movement Twitter account and, as per tradition Jackson and Doc refuse to answer a spoiler question.
