So does anyone know what the ratings were like for this season (or half-season) compared to the past 3? Kinda to give me an idea of seasons 5's chances. I know mike put something up today showing the amount of hits on this site had gone up significantly this half season vs. season 3 and season 4.1.

I don't think there is a secret president or even a treal secret government.

Think about it.

In the episode General Treister infiltrated a breakaway force to infiltrate his own infiltrated force who were (not) convncing him he was a hulk to discredit him so they could take over. That makes no sense. It's insane. Brock and te rest of Sphynx are mainly concerned with TURF over who they get to fight rather than loyalty to an oath or anything like that.

THEREFORE: We may conclude that the spies of the Venture world are JUST as crazy and 'fake' as the heroes, scientists, occultists, and villains are. They are just one more goofy stereotypical genre based clique who waste their lives playing a bizarre game that appeals to their natures. In the spy case it is a game of constant betrayal and power struggle and secrets for their own sake. Cardholder and Doe are not real bad guys so much as they are "shirts" to the OSI/Sphynx "skins" in the big game. Someone has to be the bad guy in a game or there is no game.

OSI may sometimes be of some use to the US government or uber-rich people like Brisby but the spies are always mainly focused on doing their own lunatic thing and that thing is meaninglessly compulsive and does not conform to any solid plot rules beyond it being all spy-like and shady.

I wonder now if the police are any more reasonable or sane given how they were slapping Rusty around for the guy that Brock bisected. They are parodies of guys on cop shows not real citizens who happen to work for the police.

I think virtally everybody in the Venture world is a crank of some kind acting out a goofy part that meets their particular deviant needs and yet conforms to some cartoonish aspect of central casting.
