okay, I know this is a region 1 but godamnit, this show is brilliant. just make your dvd player multi-regional because it is so worth it.
The premise of the show is about the venture family. There's Dr Venture, ex kid adventurer, now failed scientist, his two idiotic sons, Hank and Dean and their body guard, the greatest american secret agent, Brock Sampson. It follows their exploits and confrontations with their many stupid enemies like the monarch, a failed butterfly themed villain, Baron Underbheit (dont ask) and many more.
The second series is just as good as the first, which is rare with adult swim series as the first series is usually brilliant whilst the second is a let down.
A must own for all those lovers of old action cartoons like johnny Quest and those who look for the wierd and wonderful cartoons.

I randomly caught episodes of this show every now and then on late night TV, for a while there where clips on youtube, but I always hesitated buying the DVD's because there were Region 1...I took the plunge earlier this year and bought both Seasons 1 & 2 and was not disappointed, the show is one of the most consistently funny cartoons out there at the moment and I would put it up there with the more well know Family Guy and American Dad, and for those with longer memories The Tick.
If you like the above shows then I guarantee The Venture Brothers will not let you down....
GO TEAM VENTURE!!!
