Default 'The Venture Brothers: Season 4' - High-Def Digest Review

Nate has reviewed 'The Venture Brothers: Season 4.' If you aren't already a fan, this is likely a difficult place to start. For those already into the series, this is a wild season for sure. This Blu-ray tries to fit waaaaay too much onto just one disc. The results aren't pretty. For fans only.

Man, Nate, I can't believe you cut away from your review for over a minute so you could once again bash Family Guy.

why wouldn't i? the shows are very similar, but this one is way less fatty, allowing more jokes per episode. more fun, more insanity, more creative freedom.

yeah, i know, i trash Family Guy. can't help it. i gave Cavalcade good enough marks, though, so i can't be called a hater for sake of hating!

Damn, it's really disheartening to read that the disc turned out like that.

Also, while I liked this season overall, I thought three was better.

Venture Bros is awesome. I didn't like this season as much as previous ones, but it was nice to see them shake things up a bit. It sucks to hear about all the artifacting, especially after how great the third season looks. I have to wonder about the compression comment on the TrueHD tracks though, disc space shouldn't be a factor in how a lossless track sounds right?

On a related note though, why is it that dramatic shows like Fringe with higher quality sound design never get lossless audio from WB, but 16 episodes of the Venture Bros on one disc does?

i wondered why this one got lossless, MrA, but considering its problems, it probably needed all the help it could get.

Tragic that the quality is so bad, and I can't believe they didn't include their Comic Con panel. I liked the season, and while there were some great moments, thought it was the weakest of the bunch so far, but I'll be back for S5

I guess I'll still buy it but I wish they had made it a two disc set instead of cramming everthing onto a 50GB disc.

Man, that sucks about the artifacting... trying to decide if I should just go DVD on this one. The Blu of Season 3 was fantastic and well worth the extra $$.

Too bad about the low visual quality on Blu for season 4. I made the tough decision to stick with DVD for Season 3 (but wisely picked up the soundtrack seprately; great soundtrack!) instead of buying Blu in order to keep my seasons in the same format. I don't feel so bad about that now. I wish there was a single release for season 4 on DVD instead of two half seasons.
