#21/Gary's dream sequence appears to confirm that he actually executed Wandering Spider rather that letting him go minus his metal legs. As for the original Blue Morpho, I suspect he was directly responsible for #21 oversleeping the mission. He had definitely been in the lair that morning to steal the Morphomobile. The Vendata/Venturian was probably rebooted to his original personality once the PROBLEM activated. Can't wait for the third part which hasn't been spoilered yet.

Probably the one who emptied out the Morpho-lair before he could show Sheila too.


On another note, am I the only one who forgot about Wandering Spider? I mean, I remember all the other arches they took out but for some reason he didn't make much of an impression on me.

I didn't interpret it that way. I took it that Gary did take Wandering Spider back to the Morpho Cave, alive, and then he died in there due to cannibalism; Gary just feels guilty about indirectly causing his death.

Another quality episode. Some of the Rocko and Wale stuff worked, some of it didn't. I'm still suspicious of Dr. Dugong's return. Seems a bit too easy- maybe a shapeshifter? Got 2 or 3 of those and none of them had definitive corpses. Whatever- nice to see Red Death again. Clancy Brown always brings his A game.

Well starfish DNA does allow regenerating so Dr. Dugong might be the one true Dr. Dugong....I'm more interested in knowing why Wide Wale is such a bastard of a brother, that he didn't tell Sirena that she had an uncle until Dr. Dugong just showed up.

He grew his head back! Un-effing-incredible. He even grew backk his memories! Jackson and Doc used to play a lot more fairly. When Rusty was cloning the boys the clones never had their memories until those memories were down-loaded into them. They may as well have said the Monarch missed when he shot Dr. Dugong at point-blank range.

That was my thought as well. Then again, they only showed the gun warming up and not the firing, so he very well may have missed.

I concur. We don't know how serious his head injury was. It's conceivable that it was serious enough to pronounce him dead at the scene without further inspection, but not serious enough that super-science-fueled regeneration couldn't repair. I presume soon after he was found to be alive (or rather not yet dead) by OSI he was given all the medical care (and biological nutrients via feeding tube) to allow his body to repair itself over the next year plus.

Yeah, I'm not sure why we need to worry about real-world physics and biology given everything that goes on in the show. Magic is real, super-science is real, and Dr. Dugong is part starfish and that's all fine, but he can't regain his memories?

I mean Billy Whalen's and Think Tank's heads are completely biologically impossible, we met Rusty's actual literal ID, one of the Palaemon interns was turned into some kind of spectre, all those resurrected zombies, The Master, blackulas, etc.Not sure why you're suddenly looking for a logically sound explanation.

I think the reason I found the explanation of Dr. Dugong's survival so far-fetched it resembled an explanation put forwarded for a Thelma and Louise sequel. How could they survive driving into the Grand Canyon? --- They bounced. It was just nonsense. Malcom couldn't have missed because Dr. Girlfriend acted as if the Monarch had killed Dugong. This was a big, illogical gimmee to get he Mponarch off the hook they had put him on last season. I see it as the kind of massive cheat Doc and Jackson has never done before.

You know, the more I think about it, the more I move towards the whole miss thing. Sheila's lied to him before to spare his feelings so maybe he was in such a rage that he thought he had killed him and those other arches but she actually covered it up. She had Dugong make up that story on the way there to explain how he survived.

I'm guessing Jonas did NOT die on movie night. Whether he died before or after Movie Night is a question we'll probably get the answer to in the next episode.

I'm guessing that Jonas recognized some of the GCI infiltrators in the crowd and opened the cargo bay doors himself, or ordered one of Team Venture to do so. Jonas wouldn't hesitate to sacrifice his own employees to save his hide. Whether or not that led to his near death remains to be seen.
  • 1

That occurred to me too, which is why I thought he may have died before movie night and done the deed while in Pro.B.L.E.M. (it's a way to place him at the scene without some 2nd excuse). But with the Guild's involvement on movie night, Jonas being alive and the main target of the Guild also places him at the scene. We'll just have a wait a few days to find out.

The longer this show goes on the more the difference of "good guy/bad guy" and "protagonist/antagonist" that Watch and Ward insisted on rings true. Team Venture is filled with horrible bastards and many of the GCI "villains" aren't all that bad

Rusty has always been toeing that line between good/bad. We have learned over the course of the show that Jonas wasn't the white knight we may have presumed he was in season 1. Jonas was just better at both being good and bad than Rusty.

Some thoughts so far:

Steve and Dave Killsock. I didn't realize those were his shoes, I guess his suit looks like his body.

Is Rocko's madlibs just what he likes to do or another form of torture?

"Stab girl, she was a little thing, carried switch blades, she knew to exhale" -- neat villain, would like to see in a flashback. (we haven't seen her, have we? I don't recall her ever showing up)

Nice for Dr. Mrs. The Monarch doing her #metoo type speech.

Wide Whale's pistol is beautiful and seems familiar, does anyone know what it is? Has to be a reference to a gun in a movie somewhere.

"You want I shall hide behind this thing?" (should?)

Again, I think Chester (Wide Whale before the transformation) looks an awful like Gary, and with the "My mommy thinks I'm living at my Uncle's; She think's I'm good" from the begining, it hints at a familial connection for sure. Everyone and everything else seems to have implausible crazy close relationships that it's not far afield.

I want Red Death's green fall buttonup sweater with the leaves on it. If anyone knows an Amazon link for it or something, please let me know.

The building trying to walk is amazing and I am sooooooooo happy with this season so far.

"I think I left my penis in the bathroom, can I go get it?" "Here, you can use mine"

"that is disappointedly not whale shaped or hovering or anything cool"

"I can't believe I caught that knife on the first try. Arrgh! So cool."

Why is Phantom Limb being so accomidating to the remaining GCI members? He seems to have gone from badass to sycophant. Trying to win an election to sovereign or something?

I would not have noticed this had I not just rewatched Austin Powers in Goldmember but during the Wide Whale origin story as he reveals that Dougie is Dr Dugong there is a shot where Rocko standing there has one of the dolphin fountains at penis level, looking like he's peeing with a dolphin penis. Knowing Doc, there is no way that artistic placement was accidental.

(Side note unrelated to this episode, Palaemon was apparently the "guardian of ships", hence the name's usage as the shield for Gargantua-2)

This is very significant and I don't know why: "Come on! Join me!" "Are you kidding? It's freezing. Leave us alone, ya jackass." "Oh, you were never there for me--"

The Monarch's dream where he's in the ocean -- I think that's where the dialog comes from. I can't heard the dialog too well -- I suspect The Monarch (Malcolm) is remembering something from his childhood when he was playing with Rusty. But then I've long thought, based on their similar appearance that Malcolm and Rusty are brothers. (full brothers with the Blue Morpho the father) step brothers or proto-clones. The last would explain why we've never seen or heard of a Mrs. Venture

I think there may have been a clue in "A Very Venture Halloween" when Ben notes "The subject is free of any fetiform teratoma" referring to Dean venture. A fetiform teratoma is a tumor that resembles a fetus, usually associated with reproductive organs. Ben's mention of them makes me think that these were a problem with the clones at some point.

Jonas Jr. clearly thought he was a case of fetal resorption ("You suckerpunched me in the womb") but the case is definitely similar enough for TV, and all bets are off when you start talking about growing clones in tanks and other super-science shenanigans.

Was that really a #metoo “speech”?

Or just a pro-Woman / anti-meathead quip?

I’d go for the latter.

I doubt many ideologues from the #metoo movement would embrace an oversexualized female character voiced by a man....no matter how progressive that VA might be.

After having just rewatched all the episodes, I realized the main theme of the show is that life always comes full circle.

- Brock's long journey after quitting that ultimately leads to him becoming the Venture's bodyguard again.

- Billy eventually gets everything he originally wanted as a boy, he now even works for Dr. Venture and has his own arch enemy.

- Phantom Limb endures everything you can think of and in the end is now on the new Council of Thirteen and thus, basically achieved his dreams of ruling over villainy.

- Dr. Mrs. has always been the most competent villain in the GCI and destined for greatness. The Monarch takes her greatness for granted and now his wife is his boss. Now that she is basically in charge of everything GCI related, it was obvious the show was leading to this for years.

On and on like that...

Then Jackson confirms it!!!

Rewatching that episode... everything can be seen, interpreted, and read into much more deeply now after the S7 premiere.

No. I actually don't support changing the timeslot for new episodes.

I think they should just show reruns daily and promote new seasons better.

The timeslot actually has little competition, and it has become a staple over the years that all these [AS] shows debut new episodes late on Sunday nights.

I think supporting the show in other ways would actually be better.

However, I'm a big supporter of the ideal that everything good on TV must end before it gets too many damn seasons.

So, in reality, I really only want one more season after this one.
But... I also want it to be another sixteen episode season, spread across two years. With a 90 minute (or 2 hour) series finale.

And I doubt any of that will happen.

So, I guess... do whatever [AS].

After watching this episode yet again I noticed something that may or may not be a coincidence. Douglass tells Chester that he would have known that he was still alive if Chester had read the emails from their mom, to which Chester replies that her emails are usually cat videos.

Rewind to the season premiere where Doc blames Pete White's upgrading the system (one Flash plug-in) for the "computer glitch", to which Pete replies that Doc was the one who just had to see that cat video (and it was hilarious). Then presumedly sometime thereafter they started having the PRO-blem.

Now we all know the main reason for the internet is cat videos, followed by the, er, studying of the Mating Habits of the Earthbound Human, but maybe there was something else in that cat video file that began to stir awake Old Jonas? Did Doc get it from the same source as the Ong Brother's mom? I'm sure we'll find out soon.

Amazing start with an unexpected crash ending on multiple story lines! So glad the best animated show ever put on television is back with new episodes. It's scare-a-Brock-spooky!

Thoughts:
1) Hank is awesome, but I didn't get the reference to why he was spooked while over at Sirena's place.
2) I know I missed Dr. Orpheus, but, wow was the Triad awesome in this episode.
3) So glad to see the tie-in to the old looming ending of Season 1 episode Careers in Science. We thought that ending was tied up when Gargantua-1 crashed to earth, but that crash never had the emotional weight that the music at the end of Careers in Science implied. Boy did this deliver!
4) Always love to watch Doc being dismissive to to anything annoying him. Typical Doc.


Off-topic: Very disappointed to see Venture Bros. is no longer on the nightly [as] schedule. This show deserves much more exposure; a new generation of [as] viewers can only fall in love with this show if regularly exposed to it.
Super Off-topic: Was binge-watching the series in preparation for the new season and couldn't remember where the extra intro-scene for The Family That Slays Together, Stays Together-Part 1 was hidden on the DVDs. Hopefully my fellow Venture Bros. fanboys can help me find it.

I personally doubt Kano was responsible for that. He said he killed 'a great man' and got silent when Brock asked him if he killed Jonas Sr. but they never confirmed that he did it. My guess is that Jonas Sr. was in the same plane crash that killed the original Blue Morpho. If Kano really was responsible for that, he wasn't always such a crackerjack pilot.

Kano did get silent and looked away as if he was ashamed of who he killed, which I do believe is Jonas Venture Sr. Of all the Orb related stories, we know that Brock backed off from killing Rusty over it, Sandow broke the Orb instead of breaking Colonel Venture's neck, but as for Kano and Jonas....I do believe he did it.

As for the Blue Morpho, due to events that take place in episode 2 of the new season I cannot comment without bringing up some spoilers....so that discussion will need to wait until it airs or probably after everything gets wrapped up in episode 3.

Still, I am curious as to how Jonas was killed that all that remained of him was his head.

My vote is still plane crash, even if it had nothing to do with the Blue Morpho revelation coming up next episode. He could have been badly burned from the neck down or gotten into a Brazilian soccer team situation with only the PROBLEM to keep his head alive.

Maybe the same way Deadpool tried to kill himself in the second movie, by blowing him up so that only his head was left. Alternately, Perhaps Jonas Sr committed Hari Kari and Kano, as his second was obligated to chop his head off.

Because when Bud Manstrong told the legend of Phantom Spaceman, it originated during a movie night where they showed Sharky's Machine on Gargantua-1.

Yeah, but what about Sharky's Machine or that song set Jonas off in the PROBLEM? Was he a Burt Reynolds fan or into that kind of music?

I have to rewatch the episode to be sure, but I don't think the song itself "woke" Jonas or set anything off; rather, I took it to simply be part of the haunting. If the movie/song was playing at his time of death, it makes sense that if he wanted to communicate with his family/Team Venture, he'd use methods with an obvious associative impact (and indeed, as soon as Billy mentioned "Street Life," Col. Gentleman and Action Man knew exactly what was happening).

That said, I can't actually remember what, if anything, triggered Jonas/PROBLEM to become active again, so maybe I'm way off.

That brings up another question- how did they know "Street Life" meant the PROBLEM was active? Were they there for the original Phantom Spaceman movie night?

That's a good question. We still don't have a complete picture of who exactly was there and what precisely happened on Gargantua 1, but I have a feeling we're going to be getting some questions answered in S7E03. I have a hunch that members of the original Team Venture were all there, for reasons yet to be revealed.

If not, then another possible way to explain it is that, since whatever happened on movie night became something of a notorious incident --- within Rusty's social circle, anyway --- they could still know enough details to put two and two together. But I think some bombshells are gonna be dropped in episode 3 of this season.

Very nice. Glad to see so many of my favorites return, especially the original Team Venture. They make everything better. Don't know if Hank's plan will work or how Wide Wale managed to capture whoever that it is (I'm doubting it's Monarch for some reason). I'd love to find out more about Chief Justice but that one's a long shot. As for the big reveal, I'm more interested in seeing how it happened than how it'll be resolved but knowing Jackson and Doc, I doubt we'll get too much into it.

Sucks that I couldn't watch the TV premiere (Comcast still hasn't given CN back). Anybody who watched it on TV, did Jackson and Doc have witty repartee during the commercials? They usually do during premieres.

Further confirmation of the location of the origianl venture compound:

The Order of the Triad has been staying at "The Rancho Feo (ugly ranch) Motor Hotel", which Doc identifies as "That shit-hole out on I-25"

Back in "Venture Libre" HELPeR was spotted hauling ass down Highway 285 (see capsule on this site). The two highways meet in in Denver and Santa Fe, so it would make sense that the old venture place is somewhere between the two cities.

We will ignore the fact that they seem to have driven the Blood Vessel (good name) to New York in a very short time. Dean clearly called Orpheus first thing.

Good call-back to "Escape to the House of Mummies Part II" where we found out Rusty's great-grandfather was a milliner. "The Great Venture Millery Fire of 19-aught-7" probably also means the great-great-grandpa was a miserly industrialist type. The scrap bin catching on fire is probably a reference to the Triangle Shirtwaist factory fire, though that was not started by a zeppelin.

Could the zeppelin be one of the ones in the battle between Colonel Venture’s group and the forces of Tesla and his Avon Ladies in “ORB”? Although the date of 1908 doesn’t fit with Oscar Wilde being at the battle since he died in 1900.

I've long held the theory that Jonas didn't really die. I guess I was semi right.

*Episode 2 SPOILER* - When we learn that Red Death and some other guild members had infiltrated the crew of Gargantua 1 and were present at "Movie Night" to kidnap Jonas I'm betting it was Jonas who opened the cargo bay doors, because he'd totally let his own guys die to save his skin. Phantom Spaceman!

I'm on my sixth view, some notes:

Colonel Gentleman says: Rusty, that's your pop-pop.
Which has before been used to mean grandpa (when he talks to Hank and Dean) so is Rusty really his son? or an early Hank/Dean prototype?

When Dr.V.Sr. talks it sounds like he did in Careers in Science. Were Rusty's hallucinations after he hit his head actually telepathic conversations with his dad trapped in the Progressive Biological Life Extension Module?

H.E.L.P.eR. once again at the center of the Phantom Spaceman although they didn't reference PS this time. And spewing rats!

Obvious Indiana Jones reference at the begining. (I think? been awhile since I saw it, could definitely be another movie, goggle is very unhelpful at the moment anyone know what the opening reference is? The Mummy? Stargate? That one Futurama episode?). Just glad we get to see Swifty and JJ and Hector again. (I used to be pretty)

The Careers in Science throwbacks were great. Sharky's Machine! Thaddeus gets the Rusty Venture show over and over. Even Brock seems to break (HELPeR bringing him more coffee in the morning is awesome).

Did we know how Sirena was spelled before? Or is it misspelled here?

When Pete White talks about different programing languages, almost everything shown on-screen is COBOL (I think, sixth look indicates ASM and other stuff too) which he doesn't mention. "A digital patois".

"What about that Blue Morpho character?", Billy: "I think we can rule him out" --- Billy still thinks Rusty is the BM.

Vincenzo's is a great scene, but the red shirt and pizza delivery? Is this a Futurama homage?

License plate on car with Al and Jefferson and Byron (who is astral projecting to Dean at the moment)

Illinois Land of Lincoln
BLD VSSL
(Red registration sticker with no text or numbers)

So: Blood Vessel as in the blood vessels in a human body (vampire reference) and also vessel like a car or boat or whatever, transport/conveyance

Clara-tin discussion? someone with more knowledge should explain this.

How did Wide Whale get the Blue Morpho/Monarch? is this some decoy Hank master-plan?

Dr. Venture still hates the Magic explanation, like Escape From the House of Mummies, Part II.

Home is possessed. Like Dr. V was in Assisted Suicide.

Hank's pizza is a Trojan Horse, see: later they eat it and are shown collapsed on the group. I think he put a roofie in the pizza.

Question about O.R.B.
So, when Brock is asking his car about Orders Regarding Bodyguard (aka ORB aka Operation Rusty's Blanket) he asks about the termination clause and then gives his ID number Two Delta Nine Romeo Tango Eight, then the car tries to kill him "Agent. Samson. Brock. Terminated." Did he put out the hit on himself?

Claritin-D, like a lot of "daytime" drugs, has pseudoephedrine in it as a "wakefullness-promoting agent" to counteract the drowsiness caused by the active ingredient. A lot of people find the effect uncomfortable, jittery or even paranoid. Jefferson succinctly says he gets the Jimjams.

Notably, Jefferson also had the Heebee-Jeebee's in "What Goes Down Must Come Up", though that was an unrelated result of being skylarked into a mares nest.

That's always been the spelling of Sirena. I assume it's a reference to the Sirens.

Also, Sirenia is a scientific name for sea cows, including manatees and dugongs. Supposedly comes from sailors mistaking them for mermaids, so it all goes back to the same place. The Ong brothers do love their marine biology.

I kept thinking that Sirena could breath water, but she must just be able to hold her breath for a long time like all the other "gentle aquatic mammals".

Here's a pitch: Dolphins and such can hold their breath for so long in part because they're brain and other organs can enter a sort of low oxygen mode, kinda like low power mode on your phone. Now in "It Happening One Night" Sirena held Hank underwater with a kiss, and we figured she was breathing for him, like mermaids do in a bunch of other movies. Maybe she hypnotized him into a relaxed state so he could stay under for longer. It would go with the whole siren thing, and an attractive lady that hynotizes people is classic cartoon and comic stuff. She could call herself Sirenia and have some sort of sexy sea cow outfit.

"That's classic comic stuff! You're like captain- you're all... Aquaman!"

I'm not surprised, and it was expected... but damn, the ratings for the S7 premiere are not exactly great.

Top 50 Cable Telecasts:

#15 - Venture Bros. S7 Premiere - 0.660 viewers per million.

I think (hope) that [adult swim] has understood over the years that yes, VB doesn't get the greatest ratings but has a solid hardcore and that Quality improves their brand over all, also I think they might be fans themselves.

In other news, Since the PROBLEM light seems to correspond to Jonas being awake and it first came on in Careers in Science [1x02] (We're here. || So what's the problem? || The light went on. || Oh, that's helpful. || And... that's never happened before.) and crashed shortly thereafter in Guess Who's Coming to State Dinner? [2x09] I wonder if Jonas crashed Gargantua-1 to get back to Earth.

I see Robot Chicken still averages one million viewers and it just finished its ninth season in July. Ultimately, the new AT&T overlords may not understand the low ratings, compare the show to mega-hit R&M, which is similar in many ways, and want V Bros. gone. According to the artbook, it costs well over one million to make two episodes. So, probably around 750k per episode. AT&T Turner Broadcasting may not want to keep paying for it going forward.
However, Mike Lazzo could potentially keep it going as long as he wants though.

Basically, I wouldn't be shocked if season eight of V Bros. is the final one.
or
Mike Lazzo could keep the show going into the 2020s.

I'd be fine with season 8 being the final season (maybe a 9) IF they wrap it all up right. Not that Doc and JP would ever do this, but you don't want the show to keep trudging along past it's prime a la Simpsons, South Park or *gag* Family Guy.

Also, I would hope the execs would take digital sales into account. I pre order the seasons on Amazon and watch the eps on Mondays when I get home from work. A coworker of mine waits until the season is complete then buys it on iTunes or such and binge watches them all in one or two nights.

The title animation for this season, of the boys making snow angels, could also be read as them making butterflies in the snow. I wonder if this presages the revelation that they are really the Blue Morpho's children, which would make them the Monarch's brothers.

Or, Rusty is the Monarch's brother (or half-brother) which would make Hank and Dean the Monarch's nephews.

I'm curious just how dead is Jonas. His brain was described as being in a coma. So could he come back? And wouldn't that be some fresh hell for Rusty.

The new season is ten regular length episodics.

The first three episodes are basically one big story that serves as the proper S6 super finale. The Morphic Trilogy is what it's officially nicknamed.

So, S7 only has seven episodes left in it after that.
And they originally said they wanted to make sure S7 has a proper season finale.

Six episodes to do the bulk of the new season and then a S7 finale episode...
can they do it and have a season finale at the end of the new ten episode run?!?

Seems unrealistic.

They need more episodes in a season to "catch-up" again.

B/c they definitely kept writing the show as a 13 episode per season thing.
I understand Doc thinks that b/c of streaming platforms everyone just watches all the episodes at once. Meaning, finite season premieres and season finales don't matter anymore, as long as everything is eventually addressed in upcoming episodes and seasons.

But I still like them... especially if a show got suddenly cancelled, season finales can serve as good series finales. Instead of no finale.

"The first three episodes are basically one big story that serves as the proper S6 super finale. The Morphic Trilogy is what it's officially nicknamed."

IIRC what JP said was that the first 2 eps wrap up the Morpho thingie and that ep3 is like a bridge from that to the new ideas to come in s7. He said ep3 will really blow the fans' minds, or summat like that.

Just pre ordered S7 on Amazon. They have a slightly different version of the S7 trailer. The Screwhead villain speaks! Though he looks a little different to me. Brick Frog, Dot Com, that purple guy that looks like Pete Rose and a guy with horns who resembles one of the villains on Wide Wale's Fiends & Family plan chart are there too on a pier along with some unfortunate soul hanging upside down. Perhaps mistaken for the Blue Morpho?

Someone call Jackson and tell him that @ 8:26 in the season seven premiere a bad error snuck in.

The bright red timecode stuff from the editing bay appears on-screen.

Probably too late to fix it.

It's right before Hank leaves Vincenzo's and in plainly visible.

IIRC in the S6 commentary they said their original idea for the S6 finale / S7 premiere was to do it during the Thanksgiving parade but they weren't sure if the timing would work when it gets released, so maybe something like that?

Also, it might be their first white Christmas. I doubt they ever got real snow at the compound.

Yes but look @ some of the episodes, the mountain tops in the background have snow on them.

[AS] is finally airing nightly reruns of V Bros. again.

I better start watching them just in case [AS] debuts a new episode peek or trailer.

I'm really enjoying it on the [as] schedule! I know I can burn through the whole series using my DVDs, but I really enjoy watching it when it airs on the tele because it 'forces' me to watch it while it's on and not put it off recapping the story to some arbitrary time that may never occur. Plus the pacing is much better (I've never been a fan of binge watching).

It's nice the reruns are back... but don't get used to it. [AS] will air season 7 and then re-air it... probably twice, and then V Bros. will disappear off the schedule.

Both the Christmas Special and Shallow Gravy Special do not re-air on television.
Mostly due to the very short running time of each special.
So, the DVDs and BDs are the way to watch for me. No commercials and completely uncut as the sets went on. Also, some episodes in season 6 are different b/c of the "bonus" epilogues being part of the episode proper, as originally intended.
I didn't even mention the commentary tracks yet. Which I personally really love on many, many levels.

Anyway, just learn to watch two episodes a day on DVD/BD, pace yourself.

And holy shit, the artbook is finally out... in just mere days... wooo!

Holy muthafucking donkey balls! I love it when they show all these short bits of scenes that seem so out of context, like why so-an-so looks so different and such. Then when you actually see the episode it all makes total sense.... usually. Damn I can't wait!

In this SDCC interview Jackson reveals he is still editing the final episodes of the new season. Not very surprising.

That guy is "behind on the Venture Brothers"? Why is he interviewing them then? It's been over two years since the end of season 6. FFS.

IGN always has the worst hosts. The entire interview was mostly bad b/c of the host.
Jackson is so busy right now... I felt bad for him having to be interviewed by a slug.

I've seen the two new episodes... they are fucking insane. In the best way possible.
Everything has been leading to what happens... biggest revelation in the series... maybe.

I highly recommend everyone go back and rewatch the entire series.
Especially important to rewatch "Careers in Science" again.
Oh, and watch or rewatch JAWS too.
Both things I accidentally did by some magical coincidence.

Anyway, this is not a spoiler at all, but a mere guess... but I'm calling it right now... Vendata will be back as the REAL Blue Morpho in episode three of the new season.

And I bet the new episodes are a part of the permanent entire series stream now.
So, you can still catch 'em before the premiere.

Here are the episode titles. with synopsis. I just wrote:

Ep. 1 - The Venture Bros. & the Curse of the Haunted Problem - Witness the shocking events unfurl, as a horrifying poltergeist threatens the Venture clan like never before. And soon, nothing can prepare "Rusty" Venture for a revelation so huge, everything will be irreversibly changed... forever.


Ep. 2 - The Rorqual Affair - Meanwhile, the Monarch's, a.k.a. the Blue Morpho's, big plan is quickly foiled by a certain villainous whale; all because Gary accidentally overslept and missed the mission. Now captured and being slowly tortured, can anyone save the Monarch before it's too late?

Adult swim is restreaming the SDCC live stream over today and tomorrow (July 23-24) seemingly in a loop. I saw the second episode of the new season this morning followed by the Q&A. Awesome.

Not sure if I shared this before. Worked pretty hard back in the day on a google sketchup of the venture compound awaiting season 5.
Any help or input would be appreciated :)
