WIRED Binge-Watching Guide: The Venture Bros. (WIRED)

Binge-watching a show like The Venture Bros.—a dense sci-fi/action cartoon hybrid with a vast universe only rivaled by the depth of its references—may feel like trying to speed-read Tolkien in Elvish. But trust us, this is possible.


In the words of ZODIAC_MF, this show is NOT OPTIONAL. Although the guide does miss a couple of my favorite season 2 episodes, “Love Bheits” and “Showdown at Cremation Creek.” Really looking forward to the space special.

JT: Ok, on three, give him the old Rochambeau!
A: Rock paper scissors?
O: What does a general from the American Revolution have to do with this?
JT: American? Rochambeau sounds… French.
O: Yes, the Franco-American forces.
JT: They fought with Spaghetti-o’s and meatballs?
A: Why would a company called “Franco-American” make Italian food?
