Episode 101. We conclude our monthly series on The Venture Bros by discussing seasons 5, 6, and 7, which catches us up with the show! Both generations of the Ventures are dealing with the secrets of their fathers as the family lineage becomes more complicated. The Monarchs and Henchman 21 explore paths outside of their typical villainous roles. Billy and White experience firsthand what it’s like to be heroes with their own arch-nemesis. The show shifts its setting and evolves its cast of characters, introducing new mythology and calling back plot elements from long ago, twisting the story tighter in on itself. Season 7 leaves us with big questions about how the Venture family will come together or be driven apart. We also spend a lot of time wondering about time travel!?
Loyal listeners may recall the end-of-the-year Review Show playlists Melissa has made with songs from and inspired by what we’ve covered on the show. She made a whole playlist just for this series, which you can find on Spotify!
The Whatnauts present The Review Show, a weekly book club style podcast for all sorts of pop culture. We cover a variety of genres and mediums — movies, TV shows, comics, anime, manga, audio dramas — picking out a specific piece of entertainment that we can cover in a week’s time. Every episode, your intrepid co-hosts Kyle and Melissa dive into the media of the week (with a spoiler warning!), give recommendations, and take turns pitching the next topic. For one episode a month, we check in with continuing coverage on a longer title, like a full TV series or comics run, and follow it all the way to the end. Join us for fun discussions on a wild variety of entertainment you should know!
