Snapper Carr: PartTimeBuddha: Might live long enough to see Season 4. Might not. But I'm not going to feel as anxious waiting for it as I did with S.3.

Here's a fun way to pass the time. Make a wager about which will come first - R&M s4, Venture Bros s7 or Winds of Winter.


New rule: You're not allowed to complain about how long it will be until your show comes back the day after an episode airs.

Ktonos: Is Venture Bros. worth a watch? All I know is that one of my favorite non-metal musicians (J. G. Thirlwell, a.k.a. Foetus) does the music for the show.


It's sort of a Reality Ensues of, "What happens when a traumatized Johnny Quest grows up after a childhood of being dragged around the world mostly to be kidnapped by his father's arch-nemeses?"

Plus his two idiot sons are sort of a parody of Boy Detectives (Hardy Boys, The Three Investigators, etc.)

If you like comic books and whatnot, I'd recommend it.  There's also a lot of obscure references (it's probably the only show that made a Yazoo joke, and turned Klaus Nomi into a supervillain).

If you find the idea of a team of supervillains comprised of a mash-up of The Superfriends' Legion of Doom and Andy Warhol's Factory Superstars amusing, you'd like it.

I think only one person (that doesn't work for McDonald's) is happy about this and his name is Justin Roiland.

/There was a video of the writers tasting the stuff at his insistence. The general consensus was "meh"

I love Rick and Morty but its not that easy to convince me to grant some 1998 mcnugget sauce any importance, stop being recepticals for consumerism.

It's really annoying with a continuity-heavy show like The Venture Brothers.

Dragonflew: I don't understand. Is szechuan sauce not available anywhere else? Is it really that incredible, or are people just on the hypewagon?


Hypewagon. McDonald's saw a cross-promotion opportunity and the R&M people really seem to enjoy the idea that they can get McDonald's to do something like this. It's just people having fun and everybody seems to know they're playing with a corporation who is callously exploiting their fun for profit.

I have to be honest in saying the first season of The Venture Brothers takes some time to get into, but once you do and find yourself invested in the characters and the surprisingly complex world and plot, you'll really enjoy it.

What helps is to know going in is that one of the creators ("Jackson Publick,", aka Christopher McCulloch) was one of the writers for the cartoon The Tick (as well as the writer for some of the post-Ben Edlund comics). The Venture Brothers has a very similar sensibility, but it's more grown up.

Only one McDs in my area will have the sauce. I may try the szechuan sauce though I prefer the sweet and sour sauce.


Venture Brothers is a must watch if you grew up with Johnny Quest, GI Joe, Superfriends, or any of the other 70s-80s cartoons. It is a very affectionate parody of those shows.

brantgoose: One day? Do they want a riot. Because that is how you get riots.


Oh god, here it comes....

Profitable, multi-million dollar riots at somebody else's expense. Better than all the advertising you can afford. Ask Trump

And there it is. Get a new shtick. I hate him too, but you don't have to ensure he appears in every farking thread.

No participating McD's near me. Oh well, I guess I won't be visiting one any time soon.

It's just for the Rick and Morty thing. If you don't get it, you don't get it. There's nothing in it for you. Nothing to be gained by participating, nothing to be lost by not.

It is very much worth a watch. It started off as a twisted version of The Adventures of Johnny Quest and blossomed into something truly unique. (plus Johnny Quest is a recovering heroin junkie in it)

I wondered if that "Do people just die when I name them?" joke was really a reference to drone strikes. Looks like that's confirmed in this episode.

As for this season, though......... I have to say, some of it was wonderful, but overall it felt like a mixed bag.
