Let's Watch: The Doctor Is Sin

It's time for this week's Let's Watch! Tonight's episode is the classic Killinger episode, "The Doctor Is Sin" which you can watch tonight at 10pm eastern and pacific time (it will also not be reairing later in the night, so that's the only chance you have to see it). Did you know that the first half of this episode aired on April 1st, 2008, two months before the episode's premiere, in a rough-cut format without any music or sound effects? True fact! Feel free to use the comments to talk about the episode or the show in general, and have fun!

I'll be honest- this is a weaker episode for me. It's still good (even the worst Venture Bros. ep is pretty good) but there are much stronger Season 3 episodes in my opinion. I especially have issues with the ending.

Gotta disagree with you here. Even though it isn't the one of the first ones on the first disk I go for, I still really like the ones that delve deeply into Rusty's psyche (Assisted Suicide, anyone?). Rusty's one of my favorite characters, along with Phantom Limb and Col. Gathers.

Plus, how can you go wrong with Dr. Killinger?

I agree with you about Killenger and dealing with Rusty's demons but the whole General Manhowers/JJ is doing good and Rusty is doing bad thing feels forced. I still don't like the ending though. It comes out of nowhere in a bad way. Are Manhowers and Killenger the gods of old or something? Why the hell are they talking constellations with a library PSA? It just doesn't sit well with me.

There are things I like about the episode, like the journey through Rusty's issues and most of Killenger's scenes. Like I said, even the weakest episodes are pretty good. I just don't care for it as much compared to other episodes.

I suppose since, in my line of work, stages are important, it would be easy for me in enjoy the ending.

The talking-constellation thing was, I'm pretty sure, just a stupid fourth-wall breaking joke. I think the point is that initially it seems as though Killinger appearing in the stars may be a representation of his incredible power, but when Manhowers shows up it's just plain silly.

For me a good majority of Season 3 falls into the "weaker" category, but man I love this episode's ending. "That's right, Killer! And you can read more about it in the bible!" That was good stuff.

The Doctor is Sin was a good example of me getting suckered into a cool VB concept, only to have my face slapped with the reality of the futility of the show's plots. Upon my first viewing of The Doctor is Sin, I was thinking "Yes, this is dead on. Rusty is evil. Killinger is helping him understand his true nature. This will really shake up the Venture world!" Then the abrupt, change of plans ending to the episode reminded me that I was dumb for buying it in the first place. Even so, I don't think it has to be that way. Although the characters in the show tend to fail, the plots don't also have to fail. Rusty could have embraced his evil side, the Orb didn't need to be junk, etc.

It's a month old but there's not much news here for two years at a time, so whatever :) https://www.denofgeek.com/us/tv/the-venture-bros/281421/the-venture-bros-season-8-jackson-publick-doc-hammer

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!
