A heads up that The Venture Bros. is back for a fifth season, the last episode having aired in November 2010. A long delay between seasons is typical for the series, though this was longer than usual. It's presumably because it's hard to do a show of this quality on an Adult Swim budget. I no longer remember a damned thing about the previous seasons, but the season 5 premiere was as good as ever. The animated series has been described as being "about failure," and gives us larger-than-life, outlandish stories of supervillains and "super-scientists" starring characters who are all smaller-than-life ... very human, very flawed, and often very bad at what they do ... such as Dr. Venture himself, formerly a Jonny Quest-style boy adventurer, now older and working as a very inept "super-scientist" and con artist, failing to follow in his famous father's footsteps.

Jeremy Gardner, who I knew many years ago [he's in Ghostbusted 1 and was cut out of Ghostbusted 2] ....

... has released The Battery, a zombie film which is getting rave reviews.

Interesting. I might watch that just for the novelty; I kind of wanted to rewatch it anyway, even though I don't normally rewatch things, to see how the jokes land when you know the whole story.

In the original Arrested Development pilot, Lindsay looked at the gay guys protesting and said, "I have the exact same blouse." It later turned out to be Tobias wearing her blouse. The entirety of season 4 is a lot like that joke.

I know that some people just watched the entire thing twice in a row.
