A.V. Club Interview With Jackson

As part of the bevy of season three DVD promo interviews, the A.V. Club has a pretty good interview with Jackson. Sample:

I can after a while. I try to safeguard myself from doing that. I mean, it's easier sometimes to write in that vein than it is to challenge yourself to come up with a new villain or a new place to go or a new set of circumstances, a self-contained, good story. You know, all your souls, you have to keep them sharp. It's good to go back and really delve into things, it's good to get away from them sometimes. I probably am more inclined to take it a little too seriously, I think my approach is to make the funniest James Bond movie ever. [Laughs.] I think Doc approaches it differently, he's more concerned about comedy and the characters, and I'm more plot-oriented than him. I think he's way better at dialogue and comedy than I am. You end up with a good balance over the course of a season. I wouldn't want all of them to be the way I write, and I wouldn't want all of them to be the way he writes, but both are totally what the Venture Brothers are, and what Venture Bros. needs. When we write together, it's a pretty good balance.

fff, you linked to the second page so I read the interview backwards. ;)
Another great interview, I love reading these.

Though, I didn't say anything the last time Jackson mentioned a live-action movie, but come on. I can't imagine that that would be... ideal.

Hey I just noticed Doc Hammer was on the "Ken P.D. Snydecast" podcast yesterday. A few days ago I was looking through Docs old myspace posts and found that he and Jackson did that podcast, like, a couple years ago. I tried to find more from that podcast series with Doc or Jackson but couldn't find any (though the descriptions make it very hard to tell). The podcast mostly was just rambling from a large group of people over which logo they would use for their podcast based on a user-submitted contest. It was kinda pointless to listen to though somewhat amusing to hear Doc defend the ugliest logo.

ANYWHO I subscribed to the podcast and what do you know, a couple days later, a new one comes up with Doc. I haven't listened to it yet, but it's just Doc and Ken Plume according to the description, so maybe they talk about the Venture Bros.... Though according to the description they talk about "alarms and weather". :P

He didn't talk about Venture Bros so much as a variety of other topics like smoking and strip clubs and martial arts. It was still entertaining to listen to though, I love listening to Doc (and/or Jackson) talk about random crap... which is pretty much what they do in the commentaries, so if you like those... I recommend it!

Anywho, he did a second one!, which I'm downloading now.

I'm actually dreading a live action VB movie. Animated series never do well when they go to live action. Not to be confused with comic books going to live action (Batman, Spiderman, Iron Man, etc) But George of the Jungle, Garfield, Alvin and the Chipmonks, and don't get me started on Transformers--2 hour GM commercial. If VB makes it to theatres they should do it like the Simpsons, Animated.

Although I'd still see it if it wasn't.

Yeah, I'd definately watch it, I have faith that Doc and Jackson would MAKE it awesome.... but I'd definately feel better about an animated movie if they make a movie.

And besides nobody even looks like the characters they play, with exception to Urbaniak as Venture. They'd have to get people who look close and then dub their voices, so they may as well animate it. There's plenty more they can do if they animate it anyway

heh, I assume they'd do it like the tick, which I believe was using actors, with the actors voices and not the original voice actors voices (though Dr. G would have to be dubbed). I dunno, it'd be... challenging.

Also I haven't watched nearly enough Tick. I think I saw the first episode of the animated series and didn't get hooked, and the first 5 minutes of the live action series which was amusing but I was only doing it to see what it looks like. Thats (animated series first I guess) what I should be doing during the wait for season 4 of the VB.

A good interview. It gives me a lot to think about.
Also, I feel that Invisible Hand of Fate is less stand-alone than Jackson says it is. Of course, everybody has their own interpretation and is entitled to that.

Oh, and on the matter of a live-action movie, I think a CGIish thing like Beowulf might work. More like Lord of The Rings than Beowulf, but similiar technology.

I am becoming more and more excited for season 4. I didn't enjoy season 3 very well the first time through, though I enjoy it much more on DVD. Still, I honestly felt season 3 had some pretty big issues, and it sounds like Jackson and Doc are taking 4 in the right direction.

Oh, and: I'm sure that if they make a live-action movie, they will make it fucking awesome. I (and everyone else, I imagine) would prefer an animated one, but I don't know how likely that is, especially since it would more likely have to tie into established continuity, which isn't very viable from a marketing standpoint. Comma.

Frankly, i think Doc and Pub should just stick to the series for a while, Then finish it off nice and strong, like Lost is doing. Actually have an ending point (or something equivalent). But then...

Between 5 and 10 years later they should make a "made for TV" movie, like they did Growing Pains, make it ridiculously cheesy, but awesome. Maybe reunite old characters, have some guest appearances. It'd be sweet.

...or maybe just have a good animated movie, idk.

Not specifically on topic, but I made a Brock/Dr Venture music video to Queen's "You're My Best Friend." Sort of my tribute to the season three cliffhanger...it came out surprisingly sweet!

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!
