Am I the only one who thought this episode was just dull? I had a couple of laugh-out-loud moments early on (like the acid magnet line, even though I saw it coming in the split-second after Gary mentioned acid and magnets), but I'm really disliking the way this season is going so far. I enjoyed the first two episodes but there was something nagging at the back of my mind...I don't know if I'm subconsciously forcing myself to like these episodes more than I actually do...

I loved Season 4, and back when all the Hatred hatred was going on I was fully in Jackson and Doc's camp - I loved the character and I loved the way the show was developing, and I was pleased with their decision to move the show on the way they felt it should go, even if it risked upsetting some of the fans. And I thought 4.2 was much better than 4.1, but I noticed what I felt at the time was the writers bowing to pressure from fans, particularly with regard to Hatred - his paedophilia was a huge deal in 4.1, then suddenly it was pretty much forgotten about in 4.2 (did it even get mentioned or referenced?) - and I've a feeling this was a conscious decision on Doc and Jackson's part given the outcry from many fans. Now I feel we're being set up for Hatred leaving and Gary taking the role (every episode so far has had Hatred either contemplating leaving or otherwise showing dissatisfaction at his job) - something a vocal part of the fanbase has been crowing for for a while now.

I hope I'm wrong, because I hate to be the guy who makes this kind of criticism, and previously I've hated seeing this kind of comment on sites like this. I guess we all have our own idea of the way VB ought to go, and now everybody who hated Season 4 is getting their way and I'm not, so fair's fair...

Oh yeah, and giving Hatred the shot last week, so he was more sympathetic. Seemed like another attempt to appease fans of the show who disliked the character.

i seriously doubt jackson and doc are trying to appease folks who dislike hatred. they love the big lug, as do many fans i'm sure. if they were afraid of offending people, i don't think they wouldn't have given him that characteristic in the first place. and as far as gary joining osi, i think think it's totally possible. this is a cartoon show and they can do what they want. i'm sure they would show him going through the necessary steps if that was the case. of course it's also possible that he becomes a lone wolf or just becomes part of team venture.

I hope I am, D2. I remember seeing someone else a couple of weeks back say they weren't going to bother with this season just because it's going to have more Pete and Billy. I don't want to be that guy.

And I don't feel a damn bit of guilt about it, my friend hooked me into this show for a very specific character that Doc and Jackson have already confirmed for having little to no screen time this season. Why should I watch this show if the character I care about is missing, and the ones I care the least are going to feature prominently? I already tolerated the Venture family, but I'm not gonna even pretend I care about Pete and Billy.
