Let's Watch: Eeny, Meeny, Miney... Magic! & Ghosts of the Sargasso

I'm bringing back Let's Watch for this week to celebrate the airing of two of my favorite season one episodes, "Eeny, Meeny, Miney... Magic!" and "Ghosts of the Sargasso". The former introduced us to our favorite necromancer and the latter includes a scene where Brock beats up a guy with another guy who is giving him a cavity search. These air Sunday night at 9pm EST/PST and again later at 5am if you're a night owl and/or early bird. Use the comments to talk about them if you like! Enjoy!

These are two of the best episodes ever. Both favorites of mine.

I remember watching the pockets of S1 episodes I hadn't seen after watching all of Seasons 2 and 3, and I distinctly remember (and a recent viewing with my girlfriend only confirmed this) absolutely hating "Eeny, Meeny, Miney...". I don't know what it is about this episode- the crushingly slow pace, the mediocre jokes... just my one of my least favorite episodes overall.

"Ghosts" on the other hand is definitely one of the series first transcendent episodes, and is rightly acknowledged for it. Plus, the smorgasbord of David Bowie references in the first three minutes helped sell the show to my dad, who is now a hardcore fan, so that's always a plus.

Two great episodes. I've always enjoyed the earlier, more action oriented seasons.

Hank is the only one Brock would ever trust to guard his body. So perfect!
Oh, how I've missed watching this on tv, beer in hand and ingested.

Ah, yes. The episodes that first gave us Dr. O, the original Team Venture and the Pirate Captain. Fond memories! I might have missed it in some commentaries somewhere, but did they plan on making the ol' Captain a semi regular back then, or did JP just love doing his voice so much?

They have Eeny Meeny before The Incredible Mr. Brisby on the season 1 DVD but when I checked the airdate order on imdb it shows Brisby was aired first. That's odd. The DVD must be in production order vs. Air date order.

It's a month old but there's not much news here for two years at a time, so whatever :) https://www.denofgeek.com/us/tv/the-venture-bros/281421/the-venture-bros-season-8-jackson-publick-doc-hammer

Okay, Venturoos. Here's what ya get for the Extras, at least on the DVD version. I felt it was a little light, but that's just my opinion. Deleted Scenes (as always) - Some are B&W sketches with the dialog, others are animated with the dialog. Ghost in the Pro-Blem - An extended view of the distorted images of events from the Pro-BLEM's point of view. Maybe there are some clues hidden in it if you like frame-by-frame advancing. Maybe not. Sirena Goes Off... - Cristin Milioti ad-libbing way more dialog than the script calls for. Poor Rocco. Promo - Basically the season 7 promo. Maybe there's Easter Eggs to find. I haven't done any extensive searching yet. If anyone finds any feel free to post them here!

I haven't seen a press release yet, but people on reddit say June 4, 2019 is when Season 7 is on bluray. https://www.reddit.com/r/venturebros/comments/b14aa2/june_4_2019/
