If you got a super awesome power suit wouldn't you wear it all the time?

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?

I was watching that wondering "wtf?" but then thought "something happened in last weeks episode....the one that I missed."

So can anyone update me on that ep? The preview looked like 21 was assembling a new Sphinx team. l enjoyed this weeks episode though it was easy to figure out the basic plot of Spanakopita! being a fake holiday.

It's the Venture Brothers, it not turning out well is par for the course. Details?

Regarding the Monarch and Rusty.....it would be interesting if he is Rusty's brother and that the title of the show actually refers to these Venture Brothers and not Hank and Dean after all.

It would be a heck of a retcon on the title and premise of the show which started out as simply a Jonny Quest \ Hardy Boys spoof.

Brothers or clones?

They were raised side by side, but apart form the eyebrows and one of them going bald... They're practically identical.

Re: Venture Brothers

The Monarch having no memory of the event leads me to wonder if he's one of Jonas' early cloning experiments. Perhaps the reason Rusty set out to replace his fallen children was because Dad had already tried it and succeeded, only giving up when Rusty's Older Brother 2.0 went down in a plane crash.

Oh, and Spanakopita!!!

Re: Venture Brothers

If the Monarch is a clone, does that mean that there's a conjoint twin inside him too screaming to get out?

Re: Venture Brothers

How ironic would it be if the Monarch is the real Rusty Venture? Would even help explain the strange circumstances of the conjoined twin; clones growing clones.

Well, the latest episode certainly confirmed your assessment; Hank just loved wearing the suit as it gave him enhanced abilities.

(I thought he might have been "trapped" within it.)

Bill

Re: Venture Brothers

The last episode was great! It actually had a plot involving the Guild and OSI. I still think Season Two was the high point of the show because it had an actual storyline with the Guild and the Soverign and the Phantom. They need to have more of a central storyline like that. And more Brock! And General Gathers!
