This might be a terrible poll but I've just discovered VB and I'm curious how ddd thinks it stacks up

Venture Bros unquestionably. One of the smartest, funniest and referential, without drawing attention to, shows there is. A contender for best cartoon, though The Simpsons has it beat when it comes to heart

Archer's good though

Yeah, Archer is good, but Venture Brothers is the type of show that keeps my attention after over a decade and only 5 seasons. It is the type of show that I wait long periods for new episodes to come out.

Considered voting 'no opinion', but ended up voting VB. Those are probably my top 2 animated shows, but while I do see some obvious similarities between them, VB develops its characters like only few character-based dramas manage to do. I've rarely felt as invested in a character ensemble as i was during the fourth season of the show. Archer is great, but I don't feel this emotional investment, plus, up until the great new season, there wasn't much of a narrative feel to the series as a whole, apart from the sorta haphazard cyborg-Barry storyline which never really got me. VB just has better characters, and while I find Archer more consistently funny by a margin, VB's big laughs are huge, and it usually throws in at least one of those per episode or so. Archer has a more appealing look, but otherwise, I give VB a slight edge overall and a big edge on characters. But as I said, I contemplated making it a tie, so its not by much at all.

Wuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh? Aesthetically VB is one of the best looking cartoons in recent memory.

I haven't seen Archer but the animation looks ugly to me, and I know it's from the same people who did Sealab and Frisky Dingo, two shows I never cared for. I might still check it out if only because Jon H. Benjamin is in it.
