Trivia

Brock Samson's devotion to Led Zeppelin surfaces in several episodes. Some references are subtle - when driving the Charger, Brock almost always is listening to facsimile Led Zeppelin songs - while others are more overt, such as Hank rifling through Brock's collection of "Zep" cassette tapes, or Brock drawing the logo of the band's label instead of completing the essay portion of a written exam. He even has a (currently incomplete) tattoo of the label on his arm. See more »

A must watch!
16 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

The Venture Bros. is the funniest animated show to debut since South Park in my opinion. If you've ever watched Johnny Quest or read any Marvel Comics(the writers seem to be fans) you will get all the jokes. I have yet to find a character in the entire show who is uninteresting or unfunny. Brock Sampson is just a badass, and the Venture Bros. themselves are hilarious. Throw in some very funny villains and great references and you just can't go wrong with this show. Much better than any other of the Adult Swim offerings(although Sealab 2021 is pretty damn funny sometimes).
