Fan-freaking-tastic. So many plotlines set up- the lair under Monarch's house, Billy and White working for Doc, Wide Whale being Dr. Dugong's brother (I don't think a polar bear is going to be enough to stop him). Brock and Hatred make a pretty good team.

Ahh did not catch that thank you!

BTW wale: a ridge on a textured woven fabric such as corduroy. So his name is a play on words as obscure as Brick Frog. Thanks to Doc, fabric nerd.

I wondered if the guy in the Sicilian's tailor shop was a bit of Doc engaging in self-parody: the freak stroking the merch who asked if something came in green chainmail. Did not have the hair. Will we see him again? Is he going to be a new Dermott-type, a character based on "you know, a guy who..." archetype? Doubtful but I may have a fanfic idea; I KNOW that guy.

I thought this was the best Doc-written episode since "Everybody Comes to Hank's." We got Billy and White in action against St Cloud, another chapter in the Pirate Captain's battle with tranq addiction, more with the Wide Wale, and the Monarch's first attack on a Guild villain. I'm not sure how Doc fit all of those storylines into 22 minutes!

My favorite things about the episode:
1. The fake Billy Quizboy & The Pink Phantom intro. I especially loved the dune buggy. If you grew up in the 70s or 80s, Hanna-Barbera made you believe that the dune buggy was the pinnacle of automotive transport.
2. St Cloud wearing Simon LeBon's "Please, Please Tell Me" outfit. I loved St Cloud's ridiculous monologue about a world without the new romantics, too.
3. Billy's Quiz Boy grappling hand. "That kills! This thing is attached to my nerves!" I lost my shit.

AV Club had a great write up about Billy's speech at the end:

"Out of everything, though, it’s Billy and Pete who have the most surprisingly moving arc, one that starts with a great joke (rescheduling a super-hero/super-villain battle over a dentist appointment), and ending on Billy’s impassioned speech about the importance of a bouncing red ball. That speech is at once pathetic and inspiring, and if there’s a better way to summarize what this show has come to stand for—the way optimism is, at heart, a special form of nerdery, of believing in something bright and shiny and ridiculous against all possible scorn—I’m not sure I’ve heard it."

True, Jarvis never really dies, he just goes away until the time is right. But J-Bot was devoted to the V-Team and went full Iron Man protecting them.

He'll probably return at a critical moment, maybe sacrificing himself for Helper...

I wasn't impressed with last weeks "Hostile Makeover" probably because Jackson felt he had to introduce so many NYC characters that there wasn't time to create much of a plot. "Maybe No Go" was vastly more pleasing. Particularly nice was the parallel's between Billy and St. Cloud's henching battle and Monarch's and Ventures. The idea of a time-out for a dental appointment makes their battle sound like some kind of cosplay thing. But the "serious" battles between super-scientists and super-villains really aren't that much different. Besides "Rusty's Rule" you never really see any villains or scientists go all out to solve their Arching problem once and for all. The use of the polar bear at the end really tied the whole episode together. I kind of wanted to see Hank-and-the-mystery-girl storyline advance. But this was a pleasantly full episode was it was.

One question, was Monarch really angry with Dr. Mrs. Girlfriend (or DMGF as I like to call her) or was it a ruse to get her to propose make-up sex so 21could plunder her laptop for intel? Maybe the make-up sex was unexpected but the suggestion of the cheerleader costume was planned,

I was curious as to why Wide Wale's name was spelled "Wale" and not "Whale" so I looked up Wale and here's what I got.

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/wale
a. One of the parallel ribs or ridges in the surface of a fabric such as corduroy.
b. The texture or weave of such a fabric: a wide wale.

So that explains the fabric swishing sound as he was moving around. This show is so brilliant!

Yeah, Warner Home video probably won't even bother putting out a season 6 set, b/c digital is king now. Meaning these will never be released properly along with the season.
And if you buy digitally you don't get fully uncensored audio or any epilogues.

Anyway, these will probably all eventually get lost forever. I wish they'd just air with the body of the show after the astrobase logo.

Anyway, Warner Home Video is responsible for everything. J&D can submit them... but that doesn't mean Warner will include them on a bluray set. Heck, many shows are getting physical releases cancelled altogether.
The new season is gorgeous... so Warner probably won't even release a bluray set... just a dvd one... if we're lucky. Robot Chicken and Mike Tyson got their bluray releases cancelled... straight to dvd.
Rick and Morty & V Bros. are the only two AS shows that get bluray releases now. I'm soo fucking afraid they'll end them and go all digital.
Adult Swim has nothing to do with what Warner Home Video wants or does.

I feel like 5 & 6 are just one long season, the way 4 was split. Except in a way where you need to pay twice as much for the same amount of content. Season 5 through 6(ep1 at least) with G-2 all has a similar feel and flow. But I just consider the entire series one long saga with phases of time and arcs of various failures. But now Rusty's back!
  • 1

I may have to even further go back on my trivia, Adult Swim's website is counting Gargantua as S6 E1.

Also comparing S4 and S5/6 is interesting as they both have about the same format, but are numbered differently. 4 V1 and V2 are one whole season but premiered a year apart, and each had their own arcs beginning and ending in them. I almost wish they just called each 8 episode part a season, because broadcast wise we're basically on the seventh season.

And I definitely agree that the series flows REALLY well together, rewatching it is a blast when it's episodes like Gargantua-2 and this where the ending of one just immediately ties into the next one.

Ok, here's what I can remember off the top of my head-
Wide Whale is a reference to Tobias Whale, an enemy of the DC character Black Lightning
Warriana's armor only has a covering for 1 breast (which Brock alludes to under the influence of the truth lasso) and in myths, Amazons warriors would cut one breast off to improve fighting abilities (Warriana being based off of Wonder Woman)
Hank's outfit and moves when he ziplines to the aquatic girl are reminiscent of John McClane in Die Hard.

Plenty more but these are what come to mind right now.

Rusty's new jet is the Avenger's Quinjet. The J-bot lays down some Bot-Fu moves ala Sonny in "I, Robot". A bespoke suit recalls "Kingsmen" (although I'm not sure Rusty's bespoke speedsuit is bulletproof).

My favorite part of the episode by far is when the Monarch tries the retinal scanner and for a split second you think you might find another clue of the Monarchs and Docs past until the alarm goes off.
"We are traped in the elevator with the Devil. Like that movie.. Devil!"

And then after you see it doesn't work it's just so wonderfully stupid that Monarch would even try.

Thought it would be a Mirai Nikke reference [What?--Ed.]--a character who you do not think can use a retinal scanner does which is a major point--where we learn that Rusty and The Monarch[!--Ed.] are twins or something.

Hilarious tease from J & D!

Maaaaaan, the Fallen Arches guy`s gimmick was pure effin excellence. The lopped off Amazon breast reality was also choice 10 striped spiders over Texas salute! Phage`s threat.
As usual, great gestalt characters, like the OSI throw aways. Come back ya NY Doll stupor freaks!
Hope there`s a review this season of the latest Bowie. Doc & J.P. have similar tastes to me, & maybe it`s a better cd than the snap meh served via promo vid. I dont trust my friends at this point much less the reviews. Asking a lot, but ya know, Spongebob was a voice kick in the ribs. Bowie blew it (printed on his urn no less).

Oddly, I found Hostile Makeover flat and not particularly interesting. I mean it had some interesting bits but...

Fantastic! Best thing is Doc's song at the beginning - "Rusty's back on top now!"... Immediately renewed my excitement and love for this show after 3 years. Hilarious. Great episode!

I won't re-hash all of the points made above. Instead, I'll just list a few of my observations and questions about the episode:

1. I loved the idea that Hank--who has always worn Aquaman pajamas--is smitten with a real-life semi-aquatic girl, while Dean--who has always worn Spider-man pajamas--is hanging out with Brown Widow.
2. What's going to happen with Orpheus, Dermott, Billy, and Pete White? They were completely absent from the episode, and I'm wondering how much we'll see them going forward. Are they still living in the Southwest? If so, how will their paths cross with those of the Ventures? I like all of those characters, so I hope that Jackson and Doc find ways to work them into the remaining episodes.
3. I loved Wide Wale. A super-villain based on a pun about corduroy? Only Jackson and Doc. Oh, and I love how Wide Wale's beef with Rusty seems to be based solely on the broken window incident.

That's all I can think of right now.

White and Billy will show up, going off of the S6 previews but Dr. O and Dermott will not likely be seen this season..

With a flaming demon going after Rusty's soul I think we can assume that Doc O will be called in to deal with it...

Sadly, there will be none of Doctor Orpheus.

The important bit:

Publick: I don’t know that Triana is necessarily gone forever, because Orpheus isn’t gone forever. He, unfortunately doesn’t make an appearance this season, but he’ll 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 didn’t get to it.

Bummer! Especially with Dr. Strange coming later this year and the way they're playing up Avengers. He will be missed.

When Night Dick says "He laughed at the name," what does Stars and Garters reply? I couldn't make it out.

Oh goodness the long wait is over. I was already insom-maniacal the night s6 started so i saw no reason not to watch the episode twice. Much love as always to J.G. Thirwell and the sound designers. Do yourselves a favor, folks, watch the show with headphones sometime!

I feel like there is another shoe yet to drop connecting Warianna and the website the Warrington Post: perhaps run in the venture-verse not by Arianna Huffington but by... Warianna Warrington?

When she leaves, she addresses Brock as "Gargarean." YOU KNOW! The all-male tribe the Amazons have sex with annually.
