Some friends and I are re-watching The Venture Bros from the beginning, and this is how we fortify ourselves:
So far, we're able to sprint through about 18 episodes before we are too (doc) hammered to continue.
I find that the show makes a lot more sense when binge-watching it. The multi-year gaps between seasons were long enough that I had basically forgotten everything that happened. It's a more coherent overall story than you might remember. And when watching the DVD versions rather than the TV versions, there is really a lot more lovingly-rendered ball sack than I expected.
Also, let me say that this season of Archer is gold. I wasn't crazy about Archer Vice, but this season is their best so far.
It really is a lovingly-crafted show. Venture Bros gives so many fucks. I recently re-watched 3 but it's been a couple years since I started from scratch. Even the commentary tracks are good.
The commentary tracks for the Venture Brothers DVDs are excellent, especially in the later seasons where they figured out lav mics.
and you didn't invite me?
Agreed with the new season of Archer, too.
My only beef is when Sergeant Hatred becomes a regular.
Dr. Orpheus and the Monarch are killer though.
I'm still looking for my Dr. Girlfriend. But with hair like Saffron from Republica.
My experience with "Archer Vice" is that it benefits from the same process. After watching it all in one sitting it's much more satisfying than it was trying to watch week-to-week, which I gave up three episodes in.
Also, I agree about this season - it's fresh and funny.
Venture is fantastically crafted, with humor on many levels. I've watched it in binge form a couple times, and seen things I missed previously in almost every episode.
A friend who is currently working through Archer Vice reminded me that the season opened with a montage of the rest of the season. I remember telling myself that I'd have to go back and re-watch the montage to see whether it was truth or lies.
I remember that. As I recall, about a third of it accurately depicts what happens, and the rest doesn't show up. :(
Really? I'm in the minority in not liking this go-round of Archer? I thought it was starting to peter out ("phrasing!"), like SeaLab - the jokes seem reduced to single-entendres.
It must be the vermillitrask, because I can't tell what kind of tomatoes these are or that you said DVD instead of BD. Are you sure you didn't mean LaserDisc or maybe a flash keyfob done up with some mane and blisters as a fetish?
Maybe your upsampler is just awesome. Got a Vill...Viera...you're running it through mplayer's character mode output, right?
