Ain't It Cool News (

‘This Is Why I Am Anti-Moppet!! Right Here!!’ The VENTURE BROS. Season Finale Begins!! Also?? ORB Video-Commentary!!

I am – Hercules!!
"Excelsior!!" This week's online "Venture Bros." contains a two-minute bonus Monarch prologue that will not air on The Cartoon Network Sunday! Beware the absence of epilogue; the conclusion of the finale airs next week. Oh, and remember: The channel has already greenlit a fourth season. Click Here!! Also. Did you know last week’s episode, “ORB,” was the second written for the third season? I know this because I clicked on the many “EXTRAS” buttons on the right-hand part of this site and got to see the Jackson Publick/Doc Hammer commentary. The oddly-coiffed duo confirm that some jars surrounding Quizboy are indeed full of urine -- while others may contain semen. Learn that the Half-Jackal scene had to be cut way down to help get the episode to 22 minutes (from 29). Learn that the real muscleman Sandow started a chocolate company after he retired. Learn that the Action-Man clone was a mistake the creators opted to retain. Learn that Kano was supposed to be voiced by a celebrity. Learn that Sam Clemons was added to the guild because Publick thought the group needed a “marquee name.” Learn that Hammer was left befuddled by the workprint for next week’s installment.

    This show is fucking fantastic.

    by The-Duke-of-New-York

    This episode was great. I was sort of hoping for a giant three-way battle between Sgt. Hatred, Monarch, and the combined Venture crews, but there's still time for that in the second part. Hilarious, but also bad ass. I'm going to watch this episode again.

  • Aug. 15, 2008, 6:11 p.m. CST

    Like Patty Smythe, I am the Warrior!

    by Napoleon Park

    I hope Brock's mullet was a wig. Either that or he tore his own scalp off. I hate to use the words, but Brock actually, literally jumped a shark. Using the verb "jumped" to mean "attacked".<p>And I couldn't help but be a little moved when comedy relief character the Helper robot actually saved everybody from an impending plane crash. (Can't believe they just left him holding up the plane with those scrawny little arms.<p>We've been waiting for weeks for Monarch's attack - when it comes, nobody's home.<p>And gashdommit, one more episode to go! Only a couple more "Saving Grace"'s left, too. The problem with these short run summer series shows is that they're over so soon, just like summer vacation to a school kid.<p>"Why do you sword guys always have to talk about how cool your sword is?" Brilliant spoof on the old Spidey villain Kraven the Hunter, with an elephant head on his chest instead of a lion, and zebra stripes instead of leopard spots. Plus gay ex-GI Joes, the return of Molotov Cocktease and "You won't like looking for the keys." I hope this show goes for at least ten years - it might make life worth living.

  • Aug. 15, 2008, 6:16 p.m. CST

    OSI hired four hit-persons to kill Brock

    by Napoleon Park

    One refused to do it because of past dalliances, and the others he crushed, beheaded with a sharks jaw and impaled on his own cool sword.<p>So if the mullet was a wig, is the crewcut just for convenience or is he patterning himself after that guy who's his mentor? I noticed he wears the same kind of sunglasses, too. And hate to say it - hope I don't annoy all the mullet fans - but Brock looks better with the short hair and shades. I wonder, in future seasons, will he be drawn smooth on one side of his chest where the nipple was removed, or will it leave a scar? Or will he wear an eye-patch over it? Scratch that, silly thought.

  • Aug. 15, 2008, 6:25 p.m. CST

    Once the seasons over

    by Napoleon Park

    I wonder if either Adult Swim, AICN or the Ventures web site can repost that Venture Brothers cast wallpaper teaser poster. I think we've now met most or all of those people - though I sure couldn't identify all of them by name from memory. One of those guides with numbered outlines and a list of names sure would be sweet. Maybe somebody here could ask somebody there about getting something like that done, ey?

  • Aug. 15, 2008, 6:35 p.m. CST

    Holy Shit!

    by fiester

    They really took it to a new level this season. I mean, how kickass was that episode? More action and laughs in a 30 min cartoon than the entire season of most shows. Fucking awesome.

    OK they don't grow back, but all the men I know who've gotten nipples scraped/sliced/bitten off have had darkish scar tissue grow over that, for all intents and purposes, approximated the male nipple.

    by coolhanderik

    Dammit that was amazing. I had a feeling, since Brock seemed really underused and hadn't really done much badassery, that they were saving him up for a metric fuckton of ass kicking end of the season, and so far, he delivered. I got the impression that he tore/cut his hair off, that's why his head is all stubly.

    by necgray

    Back when that pic first surfaced it was pointed out that the group portrait was for new characters and alternate outfits for main characters. Apparently Dean never had a drastic change of appearance. I don't remember one, so that's probably true.

  • Aug. 15, 2008, 8:18 p.m. CST

    commentary on Orb is great

    by necgray

    One of the things they point out, and rightfully so, is the low ratio of Dean & Hank to episodes this season. I'm okay with it, and the more Dr. Mrs. The Monarch the better, but I WOULD like to see some more development on the Dean-Triana front.

  • Aug. 15, 2008, 8:47 p.m. CST

    Is Dr. Girlfriend an Imposter?

    by nyj_et

    In the season 2 episode "Hate Floats" she makes Hank drive Brock's hot-wired Dodge Charger and tells him, "I never drive men." Yet, in this ep she's chauffering 21, 24 and the Monarch in the Monachmobile. It's either that, or Monarch, 21 and 24 are women in drag.

    What I love about Venture Bros..

    by DanielKurland

    i when Brock is beheaded in the opening minutes, I actually believed it had happened. That's how crazy and ever-changing this show is. Everything was great, and I'm glad some good Brock scenes were had. Absolutely crazy that they wrote "Orb" second out of all the episodes this season. They have unbelievable foresight.

  • Aug. 16, 2008, 10:25 a.m. CST

    Hilarious how this show has become such a plot fueled thing

    by terry1978

    Back in the day, like an earlier poster mentioned, it was just made up of standalone eps basically focusing on comedy and shock humor, but now it's actually become one of those cartoons we watch for continuity. This would be the first one to engage me so much on AS since 12 Oz. Mouse...which was actually better than i thought.

  • Aug. 16, 2008, 11:50 a.m. CST

    I saw homages in this episode to:

    by fiester

    Spy Hunter video game, the old Aeon Flux cartoons, that ridiculous Bibleman live-action religious super hero show starry "Charles in Charge"'s Buddy Lembeck, and Quint from Jaws.

  • Aug. 16, 2008, 6:30 p.m. CST

    Dumb question but...

    by warthog-j

    Why does the OSI want Brock dead? Is it because he messed up on giving a password in ORB (in the car), or because he didn't kill Dr Venture (something they never specifically asked him to do, so that would be odd).

  • Aug. 16, 2008, 8:10 p.m. CST

    Warthog-J, same question...

    by DanielKurland

    And I think it would be silly if they were trying to kill just over some password misunderstanding, but isn't that what's going on?

    Question about Dr. Girlfriend from last season's finale...

    by Prof. Pop-Cult

    Did they ever answer what she told the Monarch? We were assuming that she was pregnant. But what happened with that? I swear, I watched all the episodes this season, and I can't recall that this cliffhanger from last season's finale was fully addressed this season.

    In Prof. Pop-Cult's defense...

    by DanielKurland

    It was made apparent what the "secret" was, but it was not he most linear of reveals, and it's not as if there was ever a moment where someone said "Her secret is..." I'm still thinking about how Dermot's mother was in silhouette, and if that means anything. I suppose they may want to save it for next season, as a lot was going on this year.

    is correct, CaptGarfield - Dean isn't in the pictures because the picture was a collection of new characters and new models of old characters for the then-upsoming season, and Dean didn't have one. It wasn't released as some kind of promotional thing. Just something Jackson Publick put on his blog - because he has been BLOGGING!!!!

    About Brock's hair...

    by The-Duke-of-New-York

    I think the implication was that he tore it out, not that it was a hairpiece. After all, he's cut it before, and it grew back slowly over the next few episodes.

    Okay, thanks for the clarification...

    by Prof. Pop-Cult

    I knew Dr. Girlfriend had now become Monarch's co-arch. But I guess I did not pick up the connection between the two things (last season's cliffhanger) and that. Kind of off how they hype up some mysteries and questions on this show, but only to answer them off-handedly. (Like how the show quickly revealed that Brock is the father of Hank's new best friend -- whose name I cannot remember.)

    More on Brock quitting...

    by DanielKurland

    NecGray, that makes sense. They thought he quit. Although it seems like he would just talk to them and explain the situation. Publick and Hammer said that episode 11 got tons cut out of it, so it's more than likely some of this might have been exposition with Brock's situation.

    Brock's "Termination" theory?

    by Shut the Fuck up Donny

    I'm going to have to ask the guys about this at DragonCon, because I'm still not sure how that plays together. However, I do have one theory that partially gels: Brock, I think, got that "Orders Regarding Termination" booklet with the container holding the cylinders. I suspect since he inquired into it with the OSI computer it defaulted on the assumption that Rusty got ahold of the Orb (since the booklet gave an indication he found the buried last clue) and had to terminate Brock for failing his mission. That's why, as Hunter said, they were "throwing him to the wolves"

    I still think that...

    by DanielKurland

    the OSI values Brock enough that they'd at least talk to him before immediately killing him without even asking him about his unBrock-like failing of the mission.

    Is O.S.I. that inept

    by KCViking

    that there would be that many agents who went "off the reservation"? Hell,that book that Hunter gave Brock was pretty lengthy<p>Thank god I didn't have to see Brock getting the keys!

    Brock didn't quit

    by Oknight

    I think Brock was "terminated" because he asked his car for instructions about Operation Rusty's Blanket bodyguard "termination protocol"-- it was apparently a programming error -- and therefore yes, the OSI is that incompetant

    Is O.S.I. that inept?

    by Geekgasm

    I say, yes - Doc and Jackson have said the running theme of Venture Bros. is failure, so yeah I think the OSI is about as inept as the CIA and the New Orleans city government.

    Brock's termination is simple

    by mattharvest

    Brock was assigned to ORB by Sgt. Hatred, with the intended goal that Rusty -would- discover ORB. Sgt. Hatred, on behalf of the Guild, was trying to get ORB either activated or stolen for the Guild. Now that OSI (and thus the Guild) know where ORB is, they want Brock and all the Ventures dead. Brock was marked for termination by the car's system because that was the pending order: to terminate him once it was indicated that ORB was being discovered by Rusty, because otherwise Brock would have successfully prevented Rusty from finding it.
