Well, ignorance is bliss. So I guess I'll stay in the dark on this one.

But thanks anyway.

They showed the whole episode [AS.com]? I'm glad to hear it was good, or "tight" as you called it. Hopefully not too many people will bitch about it.

Yep, they showed the whole episode.  New episodes that air on the weekend are usually shown first on Adult Swim fix on Friday night.  It's an easy way to get more people to use the service.  I've watched a handfull of episodes on AS fix and I like it so far.  It's not as good as watching eps on a regular TV, but it's great when you don't want to wait to see a new episode.

Great episode last night.

I loved it all, except maybe the music for the closing credits. I prefer the classic Venture Bros. theme.

I'll let someone else do the review, since I'm not good at that.

I still love the Monarch, he is the funniest character.  I liked his makeshift costume in prison and how he tried to put together a team with the other convicts. I can't wait until he sees Dr. Girlfriend again.[/spoiler]

Forget the Monarch. We need more of King Gorilla.

Thirded, King Gorilla is an awesome character.

Jackson Publik said this on his blog about fan concerns such as LayZ341's about the boys dying:

"Points taken, but I submit that the deaths of two walking, talking, pie-eyed sixteen year old boys--regardless of their genesis--is a horrifying thing to behold, and something to be avoided at all costs. Hence Brock will always defend them unto death--because they ARE alive, they ARE his responsibility, and Brock IS dedicated to his mission (and has warmed up to them over the years). A conundrum? Sure, somewhat. But no more illogical than the way everyone else in the Venture world dutifully go about their appointed roles (supervillains hassle scientists, scientists invent stuff, henchmen obey supervillains, etc.), which is to say that it's completely illogical but thems the rules of the game. Brock is most certainly wounded by the boys' deaths each and every time they die. He probably beats himself up for a while. But, being a realist, he moves on and tries again (if you're trying to quit smoking and you cave in to cravings and have one, is it better to give up and start smoking again, or to curse yourself and renew your commitment?) His and Doc's shared, somewhat lighthearted reminiscences about the boys' previous deaths is probably a sort of "gallows humor" coping device. The man is, after all, a professional assassin."

That sounds like a good explanation to me.  It didn't bother me at all anyways.  As Captain Long Time No See Kryten pointed out, the death montage was pretty damn funny.

I saw the new episode on AS fix last night.  It was pretty good.  I was pretty tired when I watched it so I'm going to have to watch Sunday again to make sure I catch everything.

That Scooby Doo Parody was the best thing ever.

Also, is that ex-American Gladiator Hank and Deans biological mother or not?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure she was.  Dr. Venture did say he f*cked her.

I'm so glad that Dr. Fiance and The Monarch are back together.  Phantom Limb is crushed and plotting revenge. Oh yeah, I loved how he was hunting The Monarch's former cellmates.

I must say, I love this show. A lot. So many likeable minor characters. I mean, a few minor favourites of mine are #21 and #24, King Gorilla, Henry Killinger and the Ghost Ship Captain.

And I'm glad Dr Girlfriend and The Monarch are back together again.

God bless YouTube.

Those last two episodes were the greatest season finales ever.


Don't you love this show. Oh, and the last bit before the credits with the alchemist is really gross.

As for Limb, maybe.

Thank you for bumping this, Nurdbot, so I didn't have to bother scrolling down half a page.

Anyway, over the last couple days I've watched every episode of this series (except for "Fallen Arches" which for some reason the girl I've been mooching recordings off of didn't tape), and I have to say, I've found a new obsession.  The humor's a little crude sometimes, but the characters are great, especially the villains.  I mean, who can say no to a series whose minor villains include Girl Hitler and a white supremacist anthropomorpic representation of TV static?

Anyway, too much new-fanboyness to properly address in a tasteful post, but I have to say my favorite characters are The Monarch and Dr. Girlfriend, Dr. Orpheus, and of course, Bowie.

Oh, and #21 and #24, of course.

How can anyone not like #21 and #24?

Fallen Arches is an excellent episode Nerdo, especially for Monarch fans.

Watch out for the tattoo, that is all I have to say.

Yeah, the final two episodes were tremendous.  The last one was especially full of action which I quite liked.  Phantom Limb offed some of The Monarch's prison buddies, but King Gorilla was thankfully spared.  I'm hoping he'll turn up again next season.  On a final note, AS better not take so damn long to renew the show this time around.

ZOMG it is my new favourite show!

It just recently came to Canada and it is brilliant! Three episodes was enough to convince me to buy the DVD set...

I haven't seen any of the second season yet, so I'm hoping they'll air it soon. Here in Canada it's on mondays at 10:30pm. They're nearing the end of the first season, but the chances are low that they'll air the second season immediately after... I hope there won't be a 3-year delay... <_<

My favourite episodes are "Are you there god? It's me, Dean" and "Pirates of the Sargasso", both of which were in the original three that I watched.

Series 2 is much better, things are more fleshed out and character development is excellent.

Did anyone notice the lack of JJ or Venturestein in the last episodes?

No, and i didn't miss Venturestein. Maybe Brock got rid of his guilt and killed him for a third time.

Oh yeah, Fallen Arches Was F*cken awesome!!

I love this season. I didn't know if they were going to be able to top the first, but they did.

@Nerd-O-Rama: Go to http://venture.mancubus.net/

That's an excellent site. They have great episode capsules.

What are you? gay? Venturestein ruled. And Brock isn't that heartless. Killing a guy twice might be a new limit on him.

I really want series 1 for Christmas, but Adult Swim won't release in the UK for ages!

APRIL 17

I reckon they've started writing season 3...

Jackson Publick's journal is quite good for keeping track of the dillio... I've been counting down the days 'til april for weeks...

Also... It started airing in Canada finally. Since new years... I've watched up to Assassinanny 911. So far season two has been... pretty bitchin'...
