[TV] The Venture Bros.: The Complete Season 4

26 March 2011 7:30 PM, PDT | | See recent JustPressPlay news »

The art of parody doesn’t aspire to great heights. Typically, it takes a target, ridicules its subject matter or approach to it, and then closes with a laugh. It seeks to entertain and possibly provide a new slant on the same message. Parody doesn’t evolve. It might build up a catalog of jokes on popular topics, but it never reaches for a self-sustaining existence, one where it dreams up its own comic basis, content to latch on and draw material from elsewhere. That’s where The Venture Bros. started, as a show that lambasted Hanna-Barbera adventure shows like Jonny Quest or Scooby-Doo by staging its own series of random adventures based on the life of a resentful scientist who grew up as the son of the world’s most beloved mystery-solving, crime fighting hero.

As the series worked its way through the first season, it was clear it had aspirations beyond adventure parody. »
