Very nice job, got pretty much everything. The only thing I would mention is how Ego looks like Gepetto and the broken Rusty puppet he's trying to fix probably represents Rusty's inner child.

A quadrillion is very real, but it's not a "thousand billion". It's 10^15, and a billion is 10^9. Even if you allow for the increasingly archaic "long scale", a quadrillion is 10^24 and a billion is 10^12. In neither scale is it a thousand billion.

You might consider adding that Thanatos refers to Dr. Orpheus as "Count Freud", which is likely a reference to the Count Floyd character from SCTV.

Don't you think that's more of a reference to the running gag of refering to Dr. O as a Dracula and a sarcastic remark since he said something about Freudian psychoanalysis?

I'm with you, Mike. But it isn't impossible that Casey is right, esoteric is the name of the game.

Outside of the fact that it is the only thing that Brock keeps in his glove compartment, the can of shaving cream Rusty puts in his mouth appears to be Barbasol. The brands trademark design has a swirled can to resemble a barber pole. While not exactly like the actual product it is extremely close.

Also, you left out mentioning the Leviathan; Loads of history there. Though I've never heard it referred to the way that "pete" did. It's a word often used to refer to any great sea-creature.
First (obviousely) mentioned a few times in the Bible, and throughout liturature and legend ever since. -Also in Disney's, Atlantis.

You can note that the dead Hanks and Deans seem to match the deaths from the montage at the beginning of season 2 plus the season 1 finale.

I finally got to watch this episode online last night. I can't even begin to explain how disapointed I am in Doc and Jackson, on their decision to make the Charger Electric.
Congradulations D&J on figuring out how to completely strip Brock of his manliness.

Further, I've always been such a fan of the fact that Venture bros. never took sides on political points. I'm apretty disapointed that they made a "Go-Green" reference.
Venture always just seemed like it was of a higher calibur of show than that.
I guess with last season's "Hatred's silly-putty scrotum" joke and this season's go green, I suppose every season gets to have one Family Guy type of moment.

Well I think that's a weird thing to get angry about (the fact remains an all electric engine is more 'green' than a regular gas one, regardless of buzzwords, even taking into account centralization of carbon output being placed with the power plant rather than the car, since central locations are a lot easier to regulate and also shift towards different sources blah blah blah let's not get into that debate). However I do agree that it seemed oddly out of character for Brock to replace the engine in his Charger with an electric one since it basically defeats the primary purpose of owning a Charger. I don't know though, maybe Brock is sick of high gas prices and big oil and he can just plug his car in at the Venture Compound for free.

Lest we forget this is a a comedy program. I hardly think they did that to take sides. Turning a muscle car into an electric car is pretty funny no? Its also a bit of juxtaosition Brock the heartless killer who is nonetheless sensitive enough to care about the environment.

ATTENTION ALL: I am sorry if I came off as a tool.
I Restore HotRods for a living, I just have strong thoughts about the issue of electric motors where Engines should be.
Even if it was supposed to be funny, and putting aside my VERY strong feelings toward the "go-green movement;" Just knowing what I do about the effectiveness of electric vehicles, and especially electric motors in Large old vehicles, I just found it to be really unnecessary beat, especially given that doc was in an airplane hanger, and never could have asphixiated himself anyway.

But no matter! Again, I'm sorry if I came off like a tool, I should keep my rantings to myself, and I apologize.

Well, thanks 'H'
Then I'm going to rant one more time, and this time will prove there is no bias in my opinion about that type of joke: I just finally got to watch Silent Partners last night, and I was again disapointed when they made a 'Legalize gay marriage, and pot' statement and tried to pass it off as humor. -And I support those issues!
But they did it just to be all hot-topical. There is nothing funny about making your gay character say he's moving to a place with legal gay marriage. That isn't a joke, it's just relying on people's strong opinions to cary it through without making an actual joke.....I'm sorry to go a-ranting again. I've just gone for years praising the Venture Bros. for being so original, it doesn't need to rely on politics, or current affairs to carry it, as so many others do.

Eh, gay people and marijuana have existed for years, as have questions regarding their legal status, and neither is likely to disappear any time soon. That's one of those jokes that could have been made 20 years ago and still be funny.

Actually, I thought the "Brock Goin' Green" gag was pretty funny.

Here's a guy who not only shaved Sasquatch, but also killed sharks with his bare hands, plus, not to mention obliterated canine Hitler...

...yet, maintains a sensitive side towards Mother Nature and the Ozone layer. XD

P.S. Any "ORB" fans out there will be pleased to know that Turner Classic Movies has started this new 7-part series about "Movie Moguls", airing the first episode this evening. Why is this important?

Sandow makes an appearance! (Yes, VB's very own chocolate-loving body builder!)

The episode will air again this coming Wednesday, and if anyone is interested, you get to see him flex his muscles for one of the first "moving pictures" recordings ever!

Peepshow one.

Though, calling it that probably makes a lot of people think it's about something else... :O

LOL.

Anyway, it's a 7 part series, airing every Monday on TCM. I highly recommend any movie-trivia fans to check it out! It's awesome! ^_^

Saw it last night and I concur. I was expecting it to be very dry but it was informative and something about Christopher Plummer's voice was soothing.

Indeed!

I agree with you about Christopher Plummer (he was soothing :) ).

Have you noticed too, how he's in everything lately?

He did a great job in "The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus", I must say. ^_^

Looking forward to the next few episodes of Movie Moguls -- early 20's thru late 40's were some of the best years for making movies, I think. A lot of classics came out during that time (1939, especially!).

Okay, I'm done being a nerd now... >.>

Okay, Venturoos. Here's what ya get for the Extras, at least on the DVD version. I felt it was a little light, but that's just my opinion. Deleted Scenes (as always) - Some are B&W sketches with the dialog, others are animated with the dialog. Ghost in the Pro-Blem - An extended view of the distorted images of events from the Pro-BLEM's point of view. Maybe there are some clues hidden in it if you like frame-by-frame advancing. Maybe not. Sirena Goes Off... - Cristin Milioti ad-libbing way more dialog than the script calls for. Poor Rocco. Promo - Basically the season 7 promo. Maybe there's Easter Eggs to find. I haven't done any extensive searching yet. If anyone finds any feel free to post them here!
