    I for one, welcome our new black haired Dean Venture overlords.

    Can't wait for this to start, I am way too big a fan of this show.

    Was wondering when it was coming back. This show takes forever to make because unlike most adult swim shows its animated very well.

    That and it's just the two of them writing the episodes.

    I'm going to try to get into this show. Never watched it despite hearing regularly terrific things about it.

    I didn't get into it right away when it started airing until I saw the 6th episode "Tag Sale - You're It". The polt is that Dr. Venture needs some money, so he's going to have a yard sale to try to sell off some of his old stuff and random inventions of his dad's that he doesn't want/use.
    The references in the episode are really good.

    So, definitely start with the first one, but if you're not quite getting into it from the first couple, watch that one, then go back.
    They are also really good with continuity. There's off the cuff jokes/comments in season 4 that reference stuff in season 1 that I didn't pick up on until I went back to watch and thought 'holy shit, I forgot they said that back then"

    So I'm like 3/4 into the first season and I am glad to be getting aboard this train. I also realized that if you want a cheap, easy way to make me laugh, throw in a robot-y robot. HELPeR, SAM from NTSF:SD:SUV::, even the Wafflebot from the third Harold and Kumar movie. An old-school style robot, even if it's sleek, just appeals to my sense of humor in a way very few things do.

    Not spoiling anything, but the Rocky robot makes an appearance in one of the later episodes

    Also, you're going to want to check out the Christmas songs they put out every year, especially 'Venture Aid' and 'Fairytale of New York'.

    I want as much Ventures as I can get. I've also started slowing down my watching because I don't want it to end.

    Dam, season 3 already. When you get to "Handsome Ransom" from season 4 episode 2 please post a review.

    That is a extra special episode if you grew up in the early 90s.

    Season 4 is where the show really picked up in my eyes.

    Don't worry about that. I've seen the entire series probably 3 times and still pick up stuff. Plus, there's things that happen in say the 2nd season that you forget about that are referenced in the 4th.

    I liked the show until it reached season 4. When 4 hit that show hit a turning point that made it amazing.

    That's just my opinion though.

    Are you saying you liked it more after season 4 or did you leave words out there? *confused*

    No, I just had a mild interest of the show until season 4. Thats when the show really hit for me.

    I can't wait for the new season. I didn't think Season 4 was so bad, but it was weaker than the others. I think its due to the fact that they were pressured to pick up the pace for the newer season.

    If the special was any indication I think this season will be pretty good.

    Season 4 was my favorite of the seasons. I thought the other ones were good but lacked the pace and humor that season 4 had.
