Trivia:
H.E.L.P.eR. stands for "Humanoid Electric Lab Partner Robot." It's discussed during the audio commentary on the episode "Tag Sale, You're It" that Jackson Publick originally voiced the sounds for H.E.L.P.eR. Then Doc Hammer ran this through Soul-bot, a robot that they have at Astrobase Go! to give us H.E.L.P.eR. sounds. You can see Soul-bot at the end of every episode in the Astrobase Go! i.d. It was also discussed that they gave up making new sounds after a while and just use the same ones over and over.See more »

Adult Swim Redeemed, 5 July 2006
Author: Milt from United States

Adult swim's shows have gone off the deep end of fairly entertaining nonsense to just pure absurdity. I do not see the appeal to any of them anymore and I do not often watch the programming block anymore.

Venture Bros. However stands apart from the rest and provides truly intelligent, well thought out, over-the-top and hilarious entertainment. The show is a perfect balance between tasteless humor and really clever subtleties. The homage/lambasting of early adventure animation/comics is spot on. The characters are full of depth and they're engaging. Brock Samson could pwn Chuck Norris any day of the week. What more could one want?

When I first saw this show I thought it was one of the more ******* up shows I'd ever seen. I was surprised just how graphic it was with particularly disturbing images(guy getting his eyes gouged out, watching a henchman struggle with his last breaths as he's strangled to death by Brock, poll vaulting off henchman's jugular...etc.)

I was not turned off though because aside from the surprising imagery, the jokes and references were all spot-on. I was laughing the whole way through and intrigued around every corner.

Truly, my only real gripe with the show is that it has a hard time taking itself seriously and often resorts to fairly flippant endings and/or resolutions that sometimes I feel aren't necessary. I think the show could support itself just fine with a persistent story arc, which I think we are starting to see more of in the new season anyway, so that's good.

And again, Brock Samson, there could hardly be a better cartoon character.

Check out this show, it's well worth it. I hope that it continues for a long time.
