So I finally got around to taping an episode of this show Sunday.  I was watching it this evening when the tape cut out about half way through the episode.  I stupidly set the VCR to only tape 15 minutes.  I guess I should have looked at the Adult Swim website to see how long the show is.  I figured it would be another 12-15 min show like ATHF, etc.  Woops!  The half I saw was pretty good though.

Damn straight, lady.   flirt

Here's some good news I've heard from the [as] board: "The Venture Brothers" will be on weeknights at 12 starting on November 8.  Probably not for a long time, but all 13 episodes will have been aired then.

Bankrupt, I believe the pilot for VB was 15 minutes.  Someone correct me if I'm wrong.  Anybody remember it?  They were in China or something and the boys shared a prostitute?  It was Monarch based but there was no Dr. Girlfriend, and the Monarch was fruitier...

There's a 30 minute version of the pilot floating around the filesharing programs.  Honestly, I don't think it is as good as the series.  And they were in New York City, not China.  But they were almost picked up by a prostitute.

The pilot's a little too much like Johnny Quest, especially with Hank and Dean's dialogue. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't exactly up there with the actual series.

Yeah, Hank and Dean's dialogue was a bit akward.  I guess the writers aborted the idea that the boys should talk like it's still 1955.

Well, they aborted it mostly with Hank. They kept most of it with Dean, thus making him the "fragile" one, and adding to hilarity.

I liked the pilot, and I don't believe the show has delineated very far from where the pilot took off.  It had the monarch in it, but it also had this oriental dude that like masturbating to technology or something, very funny.  And the prostitute bit was hilarious.  I don't remember if it was 15 minutes or 30 minutes, but I suspect it was the former.

I know when they aired the pilot for a second time that they'd added two minutes. I know that the one I saw was that version, and that was half an hour -err, 22 minutes, actually, if you don't count commercials) so I think the originally aired pilot was pretty much the same amount of time.

info on tomorrow's episode, "Trial of the Monarch":

The Monarch is on trial for the one crime he may not have committed, under mysterious circumstances stemming from his bitter breakup with Dr. Girlfriend.

Trial of the Monarch was by far the most plot heavy episode of VB.
Dr. Girlfriend with someone else?  But she still kinda likes him so she doesn't want him to hate her... But if he gets out he's going to go after Hank and Dean.  Oh wow...
My mind.

I was really angry by the end of tonight's episode.  It could possibly be over a year until we figure out if the Monarch will seek revenge on Hank and Dean, or if the Phantom Limb and Dr. Girlfriend Queen Opal will get away, or what the Guild is planning.    mad

CN's screwing up the order of these episodes is going to make next week's ep (where Hank and Dean go to the Monarch for help) look incredibly bizarre.

I think what really upset me at the end was Brock's total non-involvement in the Guild's activities.  He respected them, yet I still think he should have done something...

I don't know if it's gonna make it that bizarre, because this is the plot of the next episode:

'Dr. Venture finally learns the secret of his recurring womb nightmares when a stomach tumor turns out to be something far more sinister. In a fit of jealousy over their mistaken belief that their father is pregnant, the boys run away from home. But their refound freedom is short lived once they run afoul of the law and land themselves in a "Scared Straight" style outreach program headed by none other than the recently Incarcerated Monarch.'

The episode last night was production #1-13. The episode next saturday is production #1-11. The episode last Saturday was production #1-12. It looks like they're messing up the actual order of the series, but I think that the episodes are being shown in the correct order they were intended to be shown in, and were just produced out of order. If they did air them by order of the production numbers, then we'd have had the boys in jail with the Monarch last week, the monarch suddenly out of jail yesterday, and then the Monarch's trial next week. That would definitely not make sense in terms of continuity.

The episodes are in the can out of order?  That's disturbing.  The Monarch couldn't scare a lower case "L"  straight.  Doesn't sound as good as last weeks episode though...  nothing can top that in my mind.

We'll see when the episode airs whether or not it was intentionally shown out of order.  Sometimes, shows do that because a certain episode isn't finished in time, or a later episode is finished early.

"The Trial of the Monarch" was just too climatic for anything to follow it, IMO.  It really sets the stage for a major story arc next season.  Unless, of course, if "Return to Spider-Skull Island" tops it in that respect.

BTW, VB will re-air on AS at 12:00 am Sunday through Wednesday starting November 7th.

I like this show, I think it's the best [as] original other than ATHF. I like how takes elements from Johnny Quest and turn it into a comedy while keeping it serious. In my opinion the best character is the Necromancer (I can't think of his name right now).

I've only seen the past 2 episodes, but I can tell you that I really liked them, the "tear stained dress" was genius.  I am really glad that their putting VB on Monday through Thursday at 12 midnight, it will give me a chance to catch up.  Is it also on Sunday at 12 midnight, someone let me know, I don't want to miss the first episode.

Plus, I like Patrick Warburton as Brock, and I like his non-involvement in the plans of that group in which I don't know the name, it was a great line when they thanked him and he said, "Whatever.  How much time?"

P.S. Can someone point me in the direction of a open forum on GTA San Andreas?  The 2 in Off-topic have been CLOSED.

spawn_2008, we have one all purpose thread for videogames, and it's here.

Yeah, it's going to be awesome when VB is on weeknights.  Finally, I can sit all my friends down and make them watch it and prove I'm not lying about it being "the funniest show on tv" now.

As it turns out, according to TV Tome, tonight's episode is the real season finale.  Even though it has an earlier production code, it always was meant to follow "The Trial of the Monarch."

Holy crap, that was intended to be the season finale.


While it wasn't nearly as disturbing as Brock getting a cavity search, Team Venture dressed up as the cast of Rocky Horror is haunt my dreams for a while.  Hank as Magenta and Dr. Venture as Dr. Frank...  eek What kind of drugs are these writers on?

I liked the two Cowboy Bebop references.  VB is a nerdy show for nerdy people.  I'm glad it doesn't tune any of that geek chic stuff down, or else it would lose its cult charm.

Please, [adult swim], pick this show up for another season at least.  Please!

Great episode last night.  I'm glad I was actually home to watch it.  I've only seen two episodes so far, but I think I might agree with Evan that this show is the funniest thing on right now. 

What impresses me as well is that the show functions well as self contained episodes outside of the continuity.  As I said above, I've only seen two episodes, way out of order, and each episode is good on its own.  I have no idea who the characters really are because I didn't see the show from the beginning, but that doesn't take anything away when I watch it.  I'm sure it'll be even better once I know what the hell is going on.

No, I was wrong the first time.  Dean was Riff-Raff and Hank was Columbia.

I found this on IGN.com.  They're web-exclusives of The Monarch calling Dr. Girlfriend and his henchmen from prison.  Of course, they work with the established continiuity of the episodes. Here.

The episode that came on last night, was the best one they made. I thought the story and the jokes were great. Is [as] picking VB up for another season? It's definatly the best original show they have.

Yeah, Hank is the blonde, "tough," one that was dressed as Columbia.  Dean's the redheaded, "smart," one, that was dressed as Riff-Raff.  I need a screengrab to prove I'm right.

Well, the ending is a parody of the film "Easy Rider," in which the main characters are shot just before everything'll turn out okay.  Hank and Dean's helmets are exact copies of those from the film.

I guess Hank and Dean die a lot, though.  Only Dr. Orpheus seemed broken up about their deaths.  To Dr. Venture and Brock, it was just another time to clone them/heal them/grow some more boys.
