Latest News: Venture Bros. Back On The Air

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.

Latest News: What's Trending: Interview with Jackson and Doc at SDCC

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.

If you’re interested in other clips from the same interview, Doc gives advice to Amanda Bynes as Dr. Girlfriend and Jackson performs the monolog from Pacific Rim as the Monarch. Both are recommended.
