I disagree. I think they're stand-out, top-tier season 3 episodes but pretty average episodes of the series overall.

The special was so good. So, so good. I mean holy shit, that was more than worth the wait. I think it ranks up there with some of the best episodes, maybe not as far as humor goes but at least in terms of sheer amount of content jammed in (were there any important live characters we didn't see?) and satisfying story payoff. I think the animation has never looked better as well.

By the way, there's an epilogue streaming on the Adult Swim website (as well as the full episode).

Augustus St. Cloud is the only one who springs to mind, though he was at least in the preview for season 6.

Anyway, I completely agree with you - this special was incredible. A LOT of loose ends were tied up here, and it's set one hell of a stage for season 6. I'm a bit confused as to why they chose to do it all in a special rather than an actual episode, but hell, I'm not complaining. That was nothing short of epic.

Actually now that I think about it, there were quite a few regularly recurring characters who didn't show up. Pete White, Dermott, and Triana were the most notably absent.

Dermott had a brief non-speaking cameo finding a dead body in a dumpster, and Pete White was in the online epilogue.

Alas, I stand corrected.

In any case, it's hard to keep track of which side characters are dead. I still miss Henchman 24's ghost (it was better than no Henchman 24). And unrelated, I hope The Master returns as often as possible.

That. Was. Fantastic. My only complaint, as ever, is the length of the wait between seasons.

Bump.

That was very worth the wait. I'm super excited to see the rest of this season.

It's really great to have this show back. The season premiere was just fantastic all around. smile

I didn't think it was a particularly great episode (not bad by any means, just sort of mid-level Venture Bros),  but I'm very interested to see where they're going this season.

It was hardly the best episode of the show, but an above-average episode of The Venture Bros is still an excellent episode of television in general.

I thought it was a particularly great episode, but maybe that's just because it's been so long since new episodes. I remember being similarly impressed by both the season 5 premiere and the between-seasons special. I think for the most part I was won over by how high-energy it was throughout. I also liked how while it continued some of the most important storylines carried over from previously in the series,  it also felt like starting fresh and introduced a bunch of new characters and elements. Seemed like a major benefit of how many threads were tied up by the special that maybe the show hasn't experienced in a while, when it could have easily eneded up being a disadvantage that made the show start to feel stale.

For what it's worth, I absolutely adored the season 5 premiere.

Pretty interesting interview about the current Season.

Quote
I donít know that Triana is necessarily gone forever, because Orpheus isnít gone forever. He, unfortunately doesnít make an appearance this season, but heíll be back. And we intend to fold our most dear supporting characters back into it. We did have a story for him, but we just didnít get to it.

Episode descriptions for the next 4 eps.

http://www.tvguide.com/tvshows/the-v...isodes/205296/


Faking Miracles

Doc uncovers a mysterious invention that could make or break Dean's college aspirations and The Monarch makes a bad first impression on Dr. Mrs. The Monarch's co-workers.

Rapacity In Blue

A supervillain attacks the Ventures.

Tanks for Nuthin'

A super-widow surfaces and makes Dr. Mrs. The Monarch's job difficult while a criminal genius tries to arch Dr. Venture.

It Happening One Night

Avant-garde supervillains try to arch Dr. Venture while Hank searches for love in a den of ninjas.


Suspicious short description for Rapacity In Blue. Pretty vague descriptions all around, which I'm fine with to avoid any spoilers/reveals. Am liking the refocus on Dr. Venture being arched again with new villains so far.

This week's episode was great. I'm always a fan of the Billy Quizboy/Pete White episodes.

Also: MOON CIRCUS. laff

Box Inc, I know they're just promotional synopses (and fairly vague ones at that, as you pointed out), but spoiler tags might still be appreciated. smile

Eh, I thought this week was a big step down from last week and I wasn't that sold on last week. I mean, it wasn't bad, don't get me wrong... just pretty average Venture Bros (which is still very good).

Season 7 currently in the writing stages (and possibly another hour long special inbetween Seasons again).

I'm not surprised. In fact, I've come to expect a special or two as standard, given that there's a 3-year gap between seasons, nowadays.

But still, welcome news.

I've been starting to like the specials a lot more than the actual last two seasons, so I'm cool with that

I'm loving this season. Juicy reveals! An arc! The Monarch! The Blue Morpho! 21! Dr. Mrs. The Monarch's Nazi uniform! Weird villains!

And best of all, Brock is back to business as badass usual.

The season finale was, by far, my favourite episode of the season.

It was still a fairly underwhelming season for me, though. I really enjoyed it, but other than that last episode, none of the offerings were up there with the best like my favourite seasons.

I find The Venture Bros. mostly seems to alternate in quality on a season by season basis for me.

Season 1 - not amazing (it was finding its feet and some of the episodes are outstanding, but it's far from the show's best work)
Season 2 - downright incredible
Season 3 - good, but all pretty mediocre by the show's standards
Season 4a - fantastic
Season 4b - good, but pretty mediocre by the show's standards
Season 5 - fantastic
Season 6 - good, but pretty mediocre by the show's standards

So, here's to season 7, I guess.

I'll agree that season 2 is probably the show's best, but I guess I have somewhat of a soft spot for season three, even though I can see having so many standalone episodes can set some of the viewers off. A little disappointed with how underwhelming the last two season finales have been, considering 2-4 all had extremely well done two parters and how great the hour long specials have been

Apparently there was confusion about how many episodes season 6 was going to contain because they didn't know if some of the specials were supposed to count towards the episode order or not, which meant that what was, presumably, intended to be the season finale at some point, will now be the special we get between season 6 and season 7.

I think the same thing happened with "All this and Gargantua-2" - I think it was conceived as the finale of season 5, but there was confusion again.
