And if you like the Venture Brothers, you are my friend...

The Venture Brothers are the best show on television.

Never heard of it? It's okay. It's on Adult Swim. You can find it somewhere. They won't disappear it straight away.

What's it about? It chronicles the adventures of two dopey teenage boys, Hank and Dean Venture, their emotionally insecure super-scientist father Dr. Thaddeus "Rusty" Venture, and the family bodyguard, secret agent Brock Samson. And it's spectacular.

Why? Because most every episode is a 22 minute ride that you can enjoy and not have to have seen previous a previous minute. The jokes are excellent and salient to the story in most instances. And it has the whiz-bang action that other comedy shows just cannot provide.

It is as if Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer combined delicious chicken, swiss cheese, mentally retarded Hardy Boys and kick ass into the greatest meal ever. And if you like this, you are my friend.
