Two words into his first line I thought "that's Darryl from Bob's Burgers" and then later it turned out the character really was an older version of Darryl from Bob's Burgers.

Get Billy West in there and have them another duo. That gets killed the same episode they show up.

Thank god I could watch this on Adult Swims site. No channels in Canada carry any AS stuff, so we have to wait until the dvds come out.

Pretty much everything that I could say has been said, but hot drat I cannot wait to see more.

I'm curious to what character Gillian Jacobs is playing.

I think it's for the better because this whole Monarch realizing Gary is his best friend thing actually gives him something to do. It kind of felt like they were running out of ideas for the Monarch last season.

If Gary winds up falling in with the Venture gang I can see his relationship with The Monarch evolving into a Ralph E. Wolf vs. Sam Sheepdog sort of arrangement, where they officially work against one another but are still buddies off the clock. There was a glimpse of this in the premier, obviously with the friendship stuff but also with how Gary demonstrated that he knows The Monarch well enough to anticipate his moves (once The Monarch entered the picture, anyway). But since Gary is no Brock we also got to see how his inability to put up that Sam-like impenetrable wall of defense leaves plenty of room for the show's brand of awesome chaos to slip through and run wild.

Then again, when has The Venture Bros. ever been easy to anticipate?

Well the thing is, Youtube provides much better ad revenue for big companies running their shows on it these days. Back in 2009/2010 when the last season aired, there was a lot less there and also Youtube's HD setup was still kind of wonky.

I wouldn't be surprised to see them put all the episodes up after they come out on TV first, the same way 4 years ago they were putting them up on the adultswim.com video site.

Make your move...'cause mine's gonna be ugly.

My guess for this season's jaw-dropper/cliffhanger?

Jonas Senior is still alive (having been in stasis or something) or gets resurrected. Hopefully J.J. then gets to find out how much of an rear end in a top hat his father really was.

Kano never *confessed* to killing Jonas Sr., he just lapsed back into his trademark silent treatment, which could be as simple as having been sworn to secrecy by Jonas. My guess, he wanted to be put on ice until such a time that technology would have advanced to the point where he could repair Orb - and Rusty, J.J., OSI, the Guild, *and* Phantom Limb's little offshoot have to band together to stop him.

That's that guy's only voice, he does other shows and you can always tell its him because they all sound exactly the same as master shake. He may also be mark levin but that's unconfirmed for now.

Funny you say that. He's pretty much the case of voice type casted. I think it was season 3 where the alchemists first appears. Doc said something along the lines of seeing Synder being so excited and asking what type of voice they wanted. They literally said just do your Master Shake voice in their dvd commentary.

Yeah it is pretty great but it seems really stupid on its surface. Also a big fan of the new ep, I've definitely gotta binge through all the previous seasons now, it's been a while since I've seen a lot of the episodes.

Yea, once I watched a few episodes of it enough times I realized it is pretty entertaining. Though a goon once said "Oh you need to know this certain part of Georgia to get it" really put me off for a long time. What the gently caress would you make a tv show that only about 200k people would get, and most are all hillbillies.

Once you watch a few episodes and get past the bad animation you realize that it is a brilliant cartoon and cannot miss an episode.

Knowing about the Georgia hills is a prerequisite for watching Squidbillies only in the same sense that knowing about rural/suburban Texas is a prerequisite for watching King of the Hill: it really isn't, but it does enhance the experience to an extent when you catch a few extra in-jokes.

I'm pretty sure that if you've watched a lot of Adult Swim programming over the years, you'll understand the Georgia hills injokes without actually understanding that they are in fact Georgia hills injokes. Cuz all the Williams Street stuff puts 'em in everything, so it becomes at least stuff you know from other shows.
