Critic Reviews for The Venture Bros.: Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

The writing really works on multiple levels. There are a ton of pop-culture references if you're looking, but... the show doesn't rely on them for the humor.

September 7, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

The jokes are fast and furious, the tone is very mature, and the animation recalls a bygone era when people actually cared about the look of cartoons.

September 7, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The episodes veer from brilliant to funny to stupid, but Jackson Publick and Doc Hammar -- the driving forces behind the series -- never play it safe.

September 7, 2018 | Full Review…

For some, the parody aspect of the show will be enough... For others it will be a deeper appreciation of the characters and the tight and unfortunate world of disappointment in which they find themselves trapped.

The cynicism of The Venture Bros. feels forced and unnatural

September 7, 2018 | Full Review…

By the finale, the show has so elegantly set up real physical and emotional stakes... It almost plays like Hammer and Publick intend it as a sick joke, but there's something real, raw, and horrible underneath it.
