A Very Venture Halloween Reviewed
So anyway..there's a new Halloween special in town! Thaddeus Venture and Sgt. Hatred with a particularly spectacular new physical attribute I don't recall him being blessed with in past episodes, join Pete White and Master Billy Quizboy on candy gifting duty to those brave few who serpentine their way past the laser sentries. In another part of the compound, Dr. Orpheus gathers his magically inclined brethren for cocktails, canapes and A SPECTACLE OF FORBIDDEN ARTS!!! Imagine that said in Orpheus's voice..way more fun than mine.
Side note: Last night I was at a Halloween party and I met an awesome photographer girl and "Your Own Personal Jesus" came on..because it was that kind of party..and she asked me who was playing and I yelled "THAT GUY FROM DEPECHE MOOOOODE!!" in the voice of the Monarch. You're welcome.
As you might expect, Thaddeus and his crew are awesomely mean spirited, Dr. Orpheus's crew garner the bulk of the laughs through their magical feats and conversation on said feats, and we get a major bomb dropped on the boys which is sure to color their development in the upcoming season. Suffice to say, this 22 minute 13 layer turbo chocolate crunch cake is required eating and a perfectly hysterical addition to your Venture library. I advise repeated viewings to soak up all the little jokes thrown away for further action or buried by other character's lines and a hearty press of the pause button during The Outrider's magic display, especially if you're a horror fan, and therefore one of the best people on the planet. Watch it a lot!
