Because we all don’t get up that early, here’s Jayson Stark’s Trivia question from this morning’s Mike and Mike.
Venture fans rejoice! The Adult Swim original series The Venture Bros. returns tonight for its 5th season.
You want to tell people it’s a show about the misadventures of a former Johnny Quest-type boy-adventurer turned shallow and lonely-hearts super scientist, his well-intentioned but misguided titular twin teenage boys, and their “super kill guy” body guard. But you know it’s so much more than that. Unfortunately it’s too hard to explain because the Venture Bros. mythos runs so deep… and you’re probably too stoned. You should probably just let Henchman 21 explain it for you anyways.
The show is also not without the occasional pop-culture nod or obscure historical reference, due to the robust writing and research skills of co-creators Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer. So whenever I’m in need of a question or two to fill out my weekly bar trivia quiz, I turn to an old episode of the Venture Bros.
