The finale was great. I've been reading on the 'swim boards that some are thinking that this is the series finale. And if it is, it is sort of a fitting end to the show. But given the little wink-and-nod at the at end of the credits, I'm willing to bet that Season 5 is just going to be a long time a coming, but it'll get here.

Overall: I loved the resolution of the OSI and Col. Gather's arc. The prom was the "B story" to all the characters, which was good. The Monarch and Dr. Mrs. The Monarch really come off as assholes; which is fine. 21, I think, had a natural and completely deserved collusion to this part of his character's life.
I didn't realize that the finale had even aired....luckily I have my DirecTV set to record the series. Finally watched it and thought it was awesome. And yeah, if the series ended here, while I would be disappointed, this would still serve as a fine series finale. Not quite as epic as I'd have wanted, but more than enough in the character department.

21's story ended fine...I'm glad they bucked the status quo and it'll be interesting to see what, if anything, is done with him should the series return.

Molotov...feels like forever since we saw here last, and really didn't care that she'd shown up again...or "died". Ditto for Monstroso.

Hunter Gather is always gold for me...was happy with his resolution.

Wasn't sure what to make of the end (not the bit after the credits)...pretty much saw it coming with the Spanish Fly part with the huge fly. Still it was a bit much, tho I just assumed they'd turn back eventually. Guess they'll get killed by the gang before that happens.

Dermot as Hanks "date". Dean totally screwing up...and growing a pair at the end when he tells Outrider to "fuck off" (or whatever, can't recall the exact wording)...that surprised me coming from Dean.

If there is a season 5, it'll be a different animal than what we're used to.

Re: Venture Brothers

The running theory on the 'swim board is that 21 will go back to his online business; I'm thinking he'll either turn OSI/Sphinx or he'll start Arching as "The Viceroy".

My "wish list" for Season 5:

-- Kill the moppets (they were funny for all of, what, five minutes?

-- Dean ends up going Arch on someone (Raven)

-- Monarch and Mrs. The Monarch really need to get some resolution with the whole Arching Doc. angle and reveal what's got him so pissed at Rusty; the running gag of it not knowing has sort lost some of its shine.

-- Mrs. The Monarch seems to be more ruthless than The Monarch they need go somewhere with that.

The bit with the mutated hookers was there to, in some ways, bring us back to the "original" Doc/Brock relationship: Doc screws up yet another bit of super-science, Brock charges in and kicks ass. We didn't need to see them get killed because we know that's how Brock operates.

Basically, it was there simply to say "Brock is back, baby!"

They seem to be making it pretty clear that 21 is now one of the good guys so I don't see him going arch on anyone.

If anything, my theory's been that, given his pretty easy friendship with Hank and Dean, he'll be trained as a replacement bodyguard for if/when Brock leaves for good.

I don't know if this is WHY the Monarch is so pissed but I'd bet my left nut that Monarch is Rusty's long lost brother and, therefore, another of the many "Venture brothers."

Re: Venture Brothers

Pretty good opener. Kinda sucks that Brock and the gang couldn't take 21 with them, but it'll be interesting to see what he does with Sphinx. I wish they'd gotten someone else to speak for St. Cloud though. It was like listening to Hank talking with a funny voice....because it's the same guy. The GoT reference was funny as well.

All in all I enjoyed it and am happy that we're getting new Venture Brothers again.

Re: Venture Brothers

Was it the intent to make St. Cloud sound like "Comic Book Guy" from "The Simpsons"? Because that's what I kept picturing in my head. I mean, he was supposed to be some sort of trivia genius as a kid, right? I assumed it was meant as a kind of homage.

BTW, I got a kicj from the police box in his home.

Sincerely,

Bill

21 has been shown to have a good relationship with Hank and Dean. I've always speculated that he'll end up replacing Brock and/or Hatred as the Venture bodyguard.

I notice that this past week's episode had Rusty make a comment that 21 is actually doing a better job guarding the Venture compound than Hatred does.

I don't know if this is WHY the Monarch is so pissed but I'd bet my left nut that Monarch is Rusty's long lost brother and, therefore, another of the many "Venture brothers."
They had a possible hint that effect in this week when Monarch found a picture of him playing with Rusty when they were both kids and Monarch having no memory of it happening and/or why they were together.

Re: Venture Brothers

I likely missed a line of dialog, but was it explained why Hank is still in the Contessa's golden power armor and "striking" some rather feminine poses while sitting in the latest episode, the one having Dr. Venture vacation at that Greek island?

Sincerely,

Bill
