Great show, awful encoding
I gave this one star not because the show itself is bad - far from it. The Venture Bros. is the most consistently weird and brilliant animated series on TV. But if you bought the first several episodes from iTunes and thought, "wow, that's really low resolution for such a big file," well, I've got sour news friend. They've actually managed to release the most recent episodes in a -lower quality- format, which must have been difficult. It's incredibly easy for me to use HandBrake to make small, 320x240 mp4's out of my Futurama DVD collection, and they consistently weigh in at 115-145 MB. These Venture Bros. episodes take up more space, scale horribly, and look far worse to boot. And this is by no means the only series that has this problem. Apple needs to get off it's arse with this "new" encoding scheme and give us something that's worth buying and owning. Right now, no show is worth $1.99 at this quality.
Possibly the best thing Adult Swim has ever done
The Venture Bros. is simply one of the most consistently creative, stylish, well-written and funny shows on Adult Swim, past or present. Artist/writer Jackson Publick (who deserves to be remembered and made wealthy for this show, even if he never does anything else) has done a fantastic job of combining action, character development, and pure comedy in one wonderful cartoon. The show takes its cue from comic books and Johnny Quest, and pays them great homage even while it thumbs its nose and pokes them in the eye. From the unkillable Brock Sampson to the idiotic, eponymous Venture brothers themselves, to their bumbling "genius" father, to the lepidopteridiculous Monarch and the wide array of surreal and hilarious villains ("He's an albino. You can kill him with light! You could call yourself 'The Deadly Flame'!"), it builds its own rich mythos; it deftly fuses the Seinfeldian vagaries of everyday life with the vaudevillian excesses of supervillains and mad geniuses. The new season continues the heady plot left to stew in the wake of last year's finale, and the first two episodes rank with the show's best. ("Hate Floats" may be my favorite episode of the series so far--just can't beat the Monarch & co.) "Assassinanny 911", guest-starring Brock's gonzofied covert ops mentor, and "Escape...", highlighting the Mysterious Powers of Dr. Orpheus, are solid episodes as well, both just as weird and wonderful as you'd expect from the show. It is shaping up to be a very enjoyable second season. All in all, Venture Bros. has the characterization, depth, and re-watchability of an animated Arrested Development. Buy the Season 1 DVDs, watch it on Adult Swim, buy it for your iPod--you won't be sorry.
Jonny Quest - all grown up (and dysfunctional)
Imagine that jonny Quest grows up to be a slouching, bald, ill tempered, substance abuser. He still lives in and around his Father's high-tech lab, with its fabulously aging gadgets and a Super Jet. Add to this a host of bumbling later day Arch rivals and you have a hilariously dark animated masterpiece of a TV show.
