The first episode of The Venture Bros. I ever saw was "The Incredible Mr. Brisby." It's from the first half of Season One, and it's pretty good; I'd argue that the series didn't really find it's groove till "Tag Sale—You're It," when the Venture-verse reached nerdgasm levels of continuity, but that's like saying the second season of The Simpsons wasn't quite as perfect as the third. "Brisby" has a frozen-grin stroke victim as a Disney surrogate and the first "real life" appearance of Molotov Cocktease. It's good stuff. I hated it. Oh, it was funny enough, sure, and I dug the references. But I found the whole ep deeply unpleasant, in a way I couldn't shake off. The Adult Swim line up is not known for its kindness to animals, so to speak; its humor comes largely in surreal, theater of cruelty style chunks, and tearing up when Sealab. »
