As always, feel free to talk about the episode, Venture Bros. in general or pretty much anything else really in the comments here. If you haven't watched the episode yet, there will be plenty of spoilers so, uh, I guess don't read the comments if you don't want to be spoiled.

Also feel free to head on over to the episode page and vote on the episode. I forgot to mention that last week. Speaking of which, "Hostile Makeover" is ready for your vote (and there are also pretty pictures there if you're into that). So you've got a lot to do tonight. No pressure. Enjoy "Maybe No Go"!]]>

  • "Hostile Makeover" Epilogue Video! Obviously don't watch it unless you've already watched the episode. Not sure if these will be a consistent thing throughout the season, but I'm optimistic.

  • "Hostile Makeover" on AS Video! If you have a cable provider login, sorry. Adult Swim usually puts episodes up for free (you can watch a few episodes from season five plus the "Gargantua-2" special) so maybe wait a week.

  • Season six is also up on iTunes and Amazon Video if you don't have cable but have some dollars. You can buy both individual episodes and season subscriptions.

  • The "Hostile Makeover" Shirt Club shirt is up! If you didn't subscribe it can be yours for $20. You also still have until midnight (EST) on February 7th to subscribe if you still want to.

    Tonight's episode is of course called "Hostile Makeover" and it's the premiere of season six of Venture Bros.. Enjoy!]]>
    <![CDATA[Shirt Club Is Here!]]> http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/01/shirt_club_is_here http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/01/shirt_club_is_here#comments Tue, 26 Jan 2016 15:10:00 UTC Mike http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/01/shirt_club_is_here last season's Shirt Club? Well, as promised, Shirt Club is back! As usual, you can buy individual shirts every week for $20 each or, if you're feeling fancy, subscribe for $150 (US and Canada, $199 elsewhere) to get every shirt automatically plus a bonus subscribers only shirt. This year's subscriber shirt is a classy I [VB SKULL] NY celebrating the Venture family's move to New York City for season six.

    Subscriptions are only being sold until 11:59pm eastern on February 7th, so you'd better get in on it soon.

    As per usual I'll also be collecting the shirts on this handy Shirt Club page. Shirts!]]>
    <![CDATA[A Brief Word On Episode Guides]]> http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/01/a_brief_word_on_episode_guides http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/01/a_brief_word_on_episode_guides#comments Tue, 26 Jan 2016 02:32:00 UTC Mike http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/01/a_brief_word_on_episode_guides "All This And Gargantua-2" still hasn't been written. Unfortunately it's likely to stay that way. I started this site back in 2004 because I wanted to contribute, in whatever way I could, to knowledge and awareness of what I thought was a really great show. Here we are now, almost twelve (twelve!) years later and the show is still going strong and has a bigger following than ever. What was once a funny parody of Jonny Quest has now grown into something so much more. It's been amazing to see.

    Sadly those twelve years have perhaps finally caught up with me. I started this site when I was twenty-two years old. I was a senior in college. Now I'm thirty-four, and while I still absolutely love Venture Bros. and am as excited as anybody for the new season, my devotion to this site has obviously dropped off. It's time to admit that I've written my last episode capsule. It's just not something I enjoy a huge amount any more, and I've got other projects I would rather work on.

    Apologies to anyone who liked reading them, or anyone who was expecting more of them in the future. For the last year I've heard from a number of people asking where the "Gargantua-2" capsule and notes are, so I'm sorry for not saying this sooner. I thought maybe I could eventually make myself write it, but it just never happened.

    The rest of the site will continue on as normal. I'll still post news and info about the show, and the weekly discussion threads will also continue. Even the normal episode pages will continue to exist, including their collection of screencaps (something I still enjoy making).

    Feel free to sound off in the comments, as always. I'll definitely read and consider any input and suggestions you may have. If you're shy and prefer to message me privately you can also use the contact form as always. Thanks for reading!]]>

    <![CDATA[David Bowie, 1947 - 2016]]> http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/01/david_bowie_1947_2016 http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/01/david_bowie_1947_2016#comments Mon, 11 Jan 2016 22:59:00 UTC Mike http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/01/david_bowie_1947_2016

    I'm sure you've heard the news by now, so there's not a heck of a lot I can say that someone else hasn't said better or more elegantly. I'm still coming to grips with the fact that David Bowie was actually able to die, never mind the impact of such a thing. If you haven't already, I recommend spending some time listening to his music (and yes, even Changesonebowie is acceptable.) People weep when an artist they've never met dies because that artist helped them discover and understand themselves in some way. The world will go on without David Bowie, but it will be a much poorer world. The fact that we all got to be a part of a world with him in it was special.]]>

Season 6 to Premiere on January 31st, Return of Shirt Club]]> http://mantiseye.com/news/2015/12/venture_bros_season_6_to_premiere_on_january_31st_return_of_shirt_club http://mantiseye.com/news/2015/12/venture_bros_season_6_to_premiere_on_january_31st_return_of_shirt_club#comments Thu, 24 Dec 2015 16:16:00 UTC Mike http://mantiseye.com/news/2015/12/venture_bros_season_6_to_premiere_on_january_31st_return_of_shirt_club Venture Bros. will premiere on Sunday, January 31st, 2016. That's only a month (plus a week) away!

    If that's more than you think you can handle, I have even more news for those of you who enjoy shirts:

    And yes, we will be doing another Shirt Club this year. So subscription info will probably go live on astrobasego.com and Titmouse’s store one week before the premiere.

    Hope all you Venture-roos have an excellent holiday season, and I'll meet you in New York City in the new year!]]>
