i really really REALLY hope this wraps it up. I really want this series to get an actual ending. It deserves it

Fucking holy sweet bastard shit. Having quite the shit time of it in my personal life these last couple weeks so this is really fantastic news.

Great news! I'll be watching this for sure.

Fucking hell! I'm finding this hard to believe. The Venture Bros film is enough of a cause for celebration, but I thought the ship had sailed on Metalocalypse getting a proper ending. It was aggravating that both shows were cancelled as they appeared to be coming to a natural conclusion. This really is fantastic news.

I thought ATHF ended quite well by definitively concluding the 'story' in the penultimate episode, then immediately hitting the reset button and putting out a standard episode as the finale. It's not as exciting a prospect as the other two, but I'll happily give it a watch, especially if we're going to get another new theme tune.

I've never seen any adult swim cartoons though I always meant to as I like the images in memes. Is venture the superhero one?

Venture Bros was cancelled for two reasons.
Mike Lazzo who had championed the show at Adult Swim retired a few months ago.
WarnerMedia now enforces a corporate-wide strategy to put everything on their streaming service, HBO Max. But Adult Swim had already sold the rights of the show to Hulu for a few years, and the deal included potential new seasons. Followup films or spin-offs weren't included in the contract however.

Yes it's superheroes/villains but it subverts the genre by mostly focusing on their insecurities and with mundane everyday problems often getting in the way of the superhero/villain stuff.

Knowing how long Doc and Jackson took on the show, how much time are we talking about here? Two decades?

Also, can't believe ATHF are getting a second film. Epic

Word has it they had a lot of the remaining story mapped out ready, and it seemed the last season was gearing up for a conclusion. So... one decade maybe?

There's superheroes, superscientists, but, best of all, there are supervillains and arch-enemies. Know your arching rights.

I'm rewatching it all the time, so fire it up.

I started a (pretty slow) rewatch a couple of weeks ago. I'm up to episode 9.

Small Man Big Horse

There's been a (small) news update, I'll put the link in a spoiler tag though what it reveals isn't that exciting:

Spoiler alert

The thing which pleased me a lot was that they're already recording dialogue, so presumably have finished the script and will send it off to be animated soon, which might mean we get the movie in 2022 if we're lucky.

Spoiler alert
Hardly a spoiler that Shoreleave will be in it; more like that was guaranteed.

I've been watching through this recently for the first time, I'm about half-way through Season 3 I think. The Scooby Doo episode in particular I loved. I've just saw the one where they go to the jungle and meet a family of British female counterparts and I found that extremely funny, too.

I like its attention to continuity and the way it makes the characters feel weirdly real, even though they're often so exaggerated and absurd. I also like how utterly unlikeable their Dad is and how cruel and cynical the humour of the show is in general. Don't really like superhero stuff generally but yeah it's a good show, will keep watching
