    Just read this great news on Jackson's blog!

    Highlights: (Updated 3/27/2011)

    - New contract with A.S. to produce at least two more ten episode seasons of The Venture Bros.

    - 60-90 min. Venture Bros. special (this could become a movie or series finale) will be coming eventually.

    - 11 min. documentary style short probably coming summer 2011.

    - Jackson and Doc just started writing hot new stories for the season five, with pre-production starting in June.

    Who else is happy as hell to hear this news?

    Just got the Blu-Ray season 4 complete set today, I'm very impressed with the ease of the menus and the sleek design of the total BD package.

    With all 16 episodes on one BD loaded with commentarys and extras, this is one awesome set that I give a 5/5.

    Update* One big issue I have with the new BD is that it has tons of artifacts, considering VB is made in HD I am a little pissed that several scenes looked better on cable.

    I'm just going to warn you that these might be spoilers..... so be warned.

    This is what I remember from what I've just seen/heard on the new BD set.

    1. Teddy will be getting his own episode, or at least will re-occur.
    2. Scaramantula may return.
    3. Henry Killinger may be offering his services to the revenge society.
    4. The revenge society possibly retreated to the Ice Station Impossible.
    5. Scare Bear may and should return.
    6. Hatred will probably be seen in less episodes.
    7. Moltov and Monstroso probably didn't die!?!!
    8. Triana's mom is getting a voice and a bigger role.

    And finally, retailers won't carry a Hatred figure b/c of the nature of his character, and thus we won't be getting one by Biff Bang Pow.

    I think they should just make him an exclusive, but oh well.

    Okay, this is a show I kept meaning to check out and just never got around to, but over the last few weeks I have run straight through 4 seasons and holy crap do I love this show! I almost wish I had waited a few years so I had two more seasons to burn through...almost.

    Awesome! LOVE that show.


    Are the commentaries good this time? I really hate their commentaries sometimes because they talk about other thing NOT about the show sometimes.

    Well I'd say they try to talk more about the creating process, characters, and voice actors but It's Jackson and Doc. So to answear your question the commentaries are the same as always, which I personally like.

    Go Team Awesome! The season finale was quite frankly the most WTF I have ever seen out of a show. What's a Rusty Venture again?

    I think Brock's definition of a Rusty Venture is probably the right one...

    According to the creators commentray it doesn't matter which one is actually right, but they thought Brock's take on a rusty venture best describes Rustys sad little universe, and thus is the funniest.

    Also the FX animated comedy Archer has been picked up for a 16 episode 3rd season.


    So to review these are the newly renewed awesome animated programs:
    Archer - 16 more epsiodes after the 2nd season.
    Futurama - 26 more episodes after the 2011 season.
    Venture Bros. - 20 more episodes and 2 specials.

    Also the renewed pretty good animated shows:
    Aqua Teen - New season coming this May.
    American Dad - Fox has officially bought more.

    Just for fun while I'm on the topic, what animated shows would you like to see get canned?
    The Simpsons - Needs to end after next season's 500th episode, but will probably go on forever...
    Family Guy - Please just let it go away again, it's not funny anymore and just boring.
    Cleveland Show - Jesus Christ himself cannot forgive this show.


    Also heres a couple animated shows that we need more new seasons of:
    The Boondocks - Nobody really knows if more will be made, but AS wants more.
    Bob's Burgers - Could become very good over time, at least needs a 2nd season.

    A possible V Bros. spinoff 'Sphinx' pilot episode may be coming in the future.

    Update: this may be an april fools joke, but it could probably happen anyway.

    Loved the end when Doc puts 2 and 2 together about Dermit.
