The Magicians and Lucifer premiere, and The Venture Bros. return after three years! The Vampire Diaries, The Originals and Grimm return from hiatus! Best of all: Amanda Pays is back on The Flash, Goth Felicity returns to Arrow, and Supergirl gets an impressive spike in the FX budget! Plus X-Files, Jaws, and Agent…
After what’s felt like a lifetime of waiting, the sixth season of The Venture Bros. is nearly upon us. It even feels like it’s been ages since we got our first glimpse of this new season. But a new extended trailer reveals so much more about the Venture’s new fate—and how suitably weird New York is in this universe.
Oh my god. Oh my god. Genndy Tartakovsky’s iconic cartoon series Samurai Jack, which blended scifi and Japanese swordsman awesomeness, came to an end over a decade ago now. It’s lived on in the form of comics since, but at long last, Jack is coming back to television for a whole new season of adventures.
Perhaps releasing a new trailer for anything less than 24 hours after a new Star Wars preview drops is foolhardy, but The Venture Bros. are used to danger. This first look at the long, long-awaited sixth season shows the Ventures getting a bit of good news, the Monarchs having a bit of intercourse, and the welcome…
Sometimes, one hundred seconds and not a single word of dialogue is all you need to make something eerie as hell.
Ever since the first season of Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland’s Adult Swim cartoon Rick and Morty knocked our socks off with a sock-removal ray, we’ve been counting down the days until the show’s return. Finally, the end is in sight—season 2 begins on July 26. Let’s get this dumb universe rollin’!
Black Dynamite is the best show on television. Since beginning its second season on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim back in October, Dynamite—an animated spin-off of the 2009 Michael Jai White blaxploitation send-up/homage movie— has depicted the following: Mister Rogers (you know, the army-trained killing…
The Venture Bros. just blew themselves up. I'm not referring to Hank and Dean, actually, who used to have a nasty habit of dying horribly. I'm referring to the show itself, which returned with an hour-long special that not only brought years of storylines to an end, but set up a new status quo for the Venture universe.
As the ancient proverb goes, "Any day that features new Venture Bros footage is a good day indeed." So now that we have a new extended trailer for the next VB special, today ain't bad — but next Monday, when the hour-long special actually premieres, will be @#$%ing awesome.
Your move, Too Many Cooks. Unedited Footage of a Bear will make you twitch in fear every time you see a box of allergy medication.
Animator David OReilly designed and directed the video game (complete with its twerpy alien child) that Joaquin Phoenix plays in her. In this quickie short, he designs a surreal weapon, a bomb that leaves viewers in suspense until it finally serves its end.
What happens when the queen chess piece discovers her king watching pawnography? This video reveals what chess pieces get up to during their private time.
I can't believe it took anyone this long to think of this idea, but thank goodness Robot Chicken finally tackled the question of what it would be like if Cobra tried their hand at those PSAs tacked on to every ARAH episode. Now we know! And knowing is something something-or-other.
Oh, there're some cartoons and anime releases this week, but don't be fooled — crappy movies rule this week's DVD and Blu-ray release list. Some are old, some are new, but they're all terrible. Thank goodness we begin with some professional help — courtesy of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 folks.
I’ve started most of my recaps of this season of Venture Bros. despairing at how difficult it is to summarize each episode. Weirdly, the season 5 finale is actually super easy to recap, because it’s so low-key — especially compared to the rest of the season.
Get ready for R.I.P.D.'s premiere with two short animated "deleted scenes" courtesy of Adult Swim! Here, Wild West lawman Roy Pulsifer knows there are worse things than death — namely, getting your corpse chewed on by vultures and thing dragged away (and possibly humped?) by coyotes.
Holy shit. So that happened. And that, too. Tell you what: If you haven’t watched last night’s Venture Bros., and want to peruse this recap, or just look for the funny lines or something, don’t. Go watch the episode. I’m serious. Don’t screw this up.
See this picture? This is Hank, dressed as a supervillain, breaking into a bank in order to get thrown into an insane asylum for criminals. So you may not believe me when I say that Hank is, without any doubt, the most well-adjusted member of the Venture family at the moment.
