    C&C - The Venture Bros. - "Home Is Where the Hate Is" [6/22]

    Like This Thread!
    Season 3 of the Venture Bros. continues this Sunday at 11:30 PM Eastern. So far, this season has been very plot-heavy, tying up loose ends and covering back stories for certain characters. All this makes this show even more engaging than the typical AS original.

    Broadcast Order: Season 3, Episode 4
    Production Order: Season 3, Episode 11

    I laughed even harder when he was all like "We've all heard that one before, you're not getting the point."

    Today's episode was...okay...compared to the others anyway. I think that when they were funny they hit the funny extremely hard but other than that, the story moved at a snail's pace. Of course, we'll be seeing more of the world's nicest arch-enemy Sgt. Hatred (who we finally saw his HOVER-TANK ooooooohhh) but whatever

    I have a feeling that the season finale is going to be awesome for some reason.

    Any episode that references Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo and Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me is cool in my book. People who complained about the backstory-heavy episodes should like this one.

    There was an awful lot of naked manflesh in this episode.

    This was a truly brilliant episode.

    Spoiler:
    Srg Hatred is a real classic villian. He's no idiot. He truly understands the concept of revenge.

    He may be arcing Dr. Venture, but in truly he plans to treat him like king. He is doing this as revenge against the Monarch, for stealing from him over the years.

    Hatred believes that "living well is the best revenge", and he plans to make Dr. Venture's life as enjoyable as possible as revenge against the Monarch.

    I love Hatred's quote, "Cancel the non-lethal ordanance. We're going full nerf on him."

    I give this episode 5 out of 5 for comedic style.

    Although episodes like the last one are important at filling in backstory and adding in richer layers to the universe, it's also stuff like this that makes me a fan of Venture Brothers: just the general hilarity you get when you get these characters chatting up a storm with each other and seeing what sort of funny lines and jokes you can pull out of it. In general I pretty much found everything funny (I suppose the best jokes were the Monarch burning all of Phantom Limb's possessions and then almost lighting his own wings on fire, Sgt Hatred's reaction the Venture compound and his incredibley detailed allergy and fact finding sheet, The Monarch having to kick the Moppets out of his room and putting them somewhere else in the mansion, Hatred hitting Dr. Venture with a plastic bullet and being surprised he was bleeding, Sgt. Hatred being a child pedophile with Hank and Dean which would be a bad running joke if they ran it into the ground like Family Guy did with Herbert, Dr. Venture trying to guess who he was in that guessing game and saying he was George Bush, Hitler and then finding out he was Mariah Carey, Dr. Dean trying to cheer 24 up and actually getting him to admitt some of his past, Hank calling pornography no no films, Sgt. hatred showing off all of his stuff to the Monarch who has the same thing, the guessing game and Dr. Girlfriend getting Monarch's guess right away, Dr. Venture thinking Hatred and Monarch were impressed by his package and the ending) but the plot of it was also good: Now with The Monarch living the high life taking over for Phantom Limb just what is there left for him to do? A lot since he still has a grudge against venture and Hatred has a grudge against him, and based on this episode Hatred seems like a great new villian to introduce to the fold of the VB universe (yeah he was in other eps but this one feels like a good debut to his character truthfully) who will be nice to Venture to screw with the Monarch, who will still have some issues with Dr. Girlfriend which should play out well. Between the hilarity and just the way the jokes bounced off each other, defintley the strongest episode yet and one of the strongest of the show really.
    Man now I"m up to 7,000+ posts. Hard to believe it took me 8 something years to get that many. How long will it take me to get another thousand? Guess you're going to have to keep reading what I have to say to find out.... I hope you've been doing that anyway as I feed off the attention.

    This episode was better than the previous three, but I still don't think this season has reached it's potential. It's nice to see that they weren't focusing completely on the backstory and we actually got some more of the title characters, but I feel like this episode was cutting out some of the best parts. Like when Brock beats the crap out of Hatred's men or how Dean cheered up 24. There could've been a lot more hilarity to be had there. Don't get me wrong, it's still a funny episode, but not as funny as it could've been.

    So far this season has a very villain focused themes. I know they're building to something. But I'm not 100% sure what.After all we seem to be dealing the the creation of the Guild, the creation of super villains and the recruitment in to the Guild.

    Maybe its all leading to the fall of the Guild. dun dun dun
