"My parents were into education. That was their bag, and they kept toys to a minimum so I could become more creative and look, hey! It worked! You know what I had a lot of? Those quirky, dinky, die-cast metal toys for TV shows that Iâ€™ve never seen. Theyâ€™re British TV shows that were cancelled about 20 years before I got the toys, so I had no idea what these f*cking things were, and I had to make adventuresâ€”" -- Doc HammerAlright, so go read it. The final part will be out tomorrow.
Hammer: There are also characters I forgot we didnâ€™t put on the show. Weâ€™ve been doing one for a solid year now, and I forget that nobodyâ€™s seen him, that heâ€™s our character. I guess he would count as a new character, but to me itâ€™s a guy whoâ€™s existed in the Venture-verse for over a year.
Publick: We usually write them that way. We almost never write characters who walk on and go, â€œOK, Iâ€™m a new guy youâ€™ve never met before. Iâ€™m here to mess up your world.â€ We usually have new guys in and go, â€œOh yeah, youâ€™re so-and-soâ€™s ex-husband. Or youâ€™re that guy whoâ€™s in the background at the yard sale and now we know what your story is.â€
Hammer:â€œYou have a plug for a face and now you know why.â€
"I saw the first one, because this is too huge for me to not to be aware of as a guy who makes a TV show. And then I watched the second one because I'm a completist, and because I just like dumb sh*t. Theyâ€™re not good, but thereâ€™s no point for me to rally against it because theyâ€™re not for me, theyâ€™re for thirteen-year old girls and they do what they do well." -- Jackson (speaking about Twilight)There's also lots more there and I think two more parts to come. In case you missed it here's part one from last week and part two from yesterday.
UGO: I've also noticed you have a propensity to kill off those memorable characters as easily as you introduce them. Is there any character that you consider off-limits, that you would never kill off?
Doc: No, we would kill anybody. It's all fair game.
Yeah, there was a lot of love and cupping. A lot of slash includes cuddling. I'm actually charmed by it because a fan loved something so much they needed to see it procreate...that's kind of beautiful. I know it's horrifying and grisly, but I think it's a high compliment.Many thanks to Red Menace in the comments for posting a link!
"Weâ€™re hoping to approach production a little differently, and Adult Swim has been really supportive and encouraging, and so theyâ€™re giving us the ability to put some more people on the show and try to get some more help for us so that weâ€™re not as immersed in every second. Yeah so hopefully it will be a little easier on us, Weâ€™re going to do ten-episode seasons instead of thirteen, and some combination of those things will hopefully make it just more like having a hard job instead of 8 really hard jobs."So go check it out and keep checking back for the rest of it. Thanks to Kevin Fitzpatrick for the heads up!
