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.
