DH: I never read them. I have a form letter that I send back that explains it's not going to happen. At best it'll mirror something that I did and you'll be running around screaming about how it was your idea, and at worst I now cannot do my idea. And also the psychology of, "Alright, I know you guys write a show that I like so I know that you can do it, but let me just give you…," you just gotta stop that. You gotta trust that we have more ideas. I promise we have more ideas.
JP: And usually the idea makes you go, "I can’t believe you even like our show if this is your idea. Like, you seem to think this is a superhero show about Triana [Orpheus]! 'We think it would be really good if Triana got super powers!'" What are you watching?
In related news, Adult Swim has revamped the Venture Bros. section of their site, which includes the usual videos and clips, but also a swank new Relationship Action Map which you can use to figure out which character relates to others. It's also almost certain to get more and more obsolete as season five progresses, but for now it should have all the info you need.
"As for Shirt Club--that's gonna happen. The designs are all done, they're super-cool, and we're working out the logistical details now."Obviously no other details provided just yet, but I'm sure we'll hear some more info in the weeks leading up to the premiere.
As the saying goes: Venture Bros. season 5 premieres on Sunday, June 2nd at midnight (eastern/pacific) on Adult Swim.
- The XBox version will be purchasable on XBL Marketplace, worldwide, on Wednesday, April 24th (tomorrow!)
- The Steam version (which you can pre-order now for $4.99) will unlock this Friday, April 26th. Buying it gets you both the Mac and PC versions.
- The Playstation 3 version can be purchased on the PSN store in North America starting next Tuesday, April 30th
- For those in Europe with a Playstation 3, the European PSN store will have the game on Wednesday, May 1st (though that may change).
- And finally, for iPhone/iPad users there will also be an iOS version in the AppStore, though the release date is not yet known, but if you were holding out for that, there you go.
Update (4/25): Adult Swim removed this promo after the season 5 premiere date was changed to June 2nd.
