Reminder: Doctor Who and The Venture Bros. Special Air This Weekend
?Ladies and gentlemen, please do not forget: The first episode of the second half of the sixth season of Doctor Who airs at 9pm EST Saturday night on BBC America, the one with the adorably wonderful title “Let’s Kill Hitler.” I don’t know how good it will be, but it seems like it’s going to feature Rory punching Adolf Hitler, which makes it the finest hour of television ever produced by default.
?But, you same ladies and gentlemen, please do not forget this either: The Venture Bros. special “From the Ladle to the Grave: The Shallow Gravy Story” — the epic tale of Hank and Dermot’s band’s incredibly incremental rise to fame — airs on Adult Swim at midnight on Sunday. I’ve actually seem it, and god, it’s wonderful for anyone jonesing for more VB. It’s only 15 minutes, so it’s more like methadone instead of a full-on heroin hit, but god, it still felt so good. Make sure you stay for the full music video of Shallow Gravy’s non-hit-single “Jacket” at the end, which is one of the most sublime things I’ve ever seen. Look, just don’t miss either of these shows.
