THE DEM DEFENDER HAS LOGGED ON

First clue that it was fake was when the bartender gave him a Red Mocho Kooler without batting an eye.

the bartender didn't give him one iirc, the bartender just said "whatever you want, i can make for you" which is a very diplomatic and classy answer when someone sits down at your bar and wants you to make some weird drink you've never heard of

... not really.

This isn't a spoiler, but what the hell. According to both this sneak peek and the short trailer for next week's episode they aired right after the episode ran on AS, Doc is seeking out a black widow. Night Dick is involved somehow in setting them up. The gag seems to be that he (Doc) knows, going in, that she's a black widow. He knows what he's in for, and wants to go on a date. I'm 100% sure there's an ulterior motive here, but that's why they're doing this practice run.

So in regards to the spoiler argument, my only issue is that if you get rid of spoilers tags, you are going to spoil everyone who wanders into the thread because they see a new post and weren't paying attention to the exact time of day. That first wall of black text is how I know to ignore the thread until Monday.

I don't care if you get rid of spoilers tags, just make sure there is some kind of warning when a new episode is up.

No, in this case, it's a lady whose husbands (or boyfriends or whatever) tend to meet untimely ends. As in, she murders them.

The Venture Brothers Season 7 Spoiler Thread: All Sperging, No Triggering

Sure, it's a bit late *now*, but in 2073 when Season 8 debuts, it's an idea.


I'm not sure if I like that idea. Here's what'll happen: you have a Spoiler Thread and a Non-Spoiler Thread. Easy enough. But, at a certain point, the episode is available to everyone, so some of the people in the Spoiler Thread will migrate to the Non-Spoiler Thread, some won't, you end up with the same discussions in two threads, people start copying and pasting their comments into both threads... yeah, it'll get messy and dumb.

The thing is, for a variety of reasons, this may not be an issue next season. They might not put the episode online until the premiere time, or they might put it on the next day, or it might only be online, or it might only be on AS, or AS might not exist and it's only on Netflix. Or, hell, the spoiler tag rule itself may not even exist. Who knows.

I just realized. Since I don't mind using the bars, it's just a problem with reading bar-covered pages taking ten times as long... surely someone on this large and storied forum has made a browser extension somewhere that will auto-display spoilered text. Or if nobody has, I might be able to figure out how to. Then on the last couple remaining weekends I can enjoy easy skimming of episode discussion, and people who want to read every fifth post without context can continue doing so.

If the episode only debuts online, then according to TV IV rules, we'll have to put spoiler bars on every post until the televised reruns a few months later.

Here's a simple bit of CSS to put into Stylus or a similar extension:

code:
.bbc-spoiler li {
    background-color: #222 !important;
    color: #DDD !important;
    border-radius: 0px !important;
    box-shadow: none !important;
}
.bbc-spoiler img {
    visibility: visible !important;
}
With this, the spoilers will always appear as bright grey text on a very dark grey background, and images will never be hidden. It will be easy to tell when a piece of text is part of a spoiler but still fully readable.

When adding it into a new Stylus style, it should look like this:

How does reading a bar filled page take ten times as long? Literally ten times? A minute worth of reading becomes a literal ten minute task for you??

You literally either hover over the tagged part as you're reading, or if you're on mobile, tap your screen as you're reading.

If you can't manage the mental dexterity to tap the next section as you're still reading the end of the prior section so you can keep reading without breaking your flow, then... I don't know what!

That rule is called "Rusty's Law," so I assume Jonas Venture was the one who insisted it be created. The GCI's Equally Matched Aggression level rule was also created because of the Ventures. Actually, I think it's becoming clear that Jonas Venture was such a monster that the supervillians started to create more and more rules just to protect themselves from him.

"My son is injured. You're going to let us go now, and we'll pick this up again later. GOT IT?"

Ten. We only know the titles up to Ep9, though. My guess is Ep10's title might be too big of a spoiler.

S7 is technically an eight episode season since the first two are what Eps 9 & 10 would've been last season.

I mean, one answer is "how are you guys this taken-aback by sloppily-wielded hyperbole, here, on Something Awful", but that starts a cycle that goes nowhere.

Another answer is "usually when I have multiple pages of unread posts, I scroll through very quickly, skimming past most posts until something catches my eye." Can't scroll past each post to judge its worthiness in 0.1 seconds if you have to stop scrolling and hover/click. "0.1 seconds" in this case is an exaggeration to emphasize my point, a silly but common rhetorical device also known as "hyperbole".

S7 is more of a seven episodes season, what with the Morphic Trilogy being a trilogy and all. My guess would be that they would have done things differently if they only had two episodes?

Calling it now, the finale will be called "Death of the Monarch" or something like that. They are already setting up Manolo to be 21's new partner in comedy!

Does anyone have trouble with the Adult Swim app? Trying to watch last week episode before the expiration date and it just kept giving me the loading screen. Other questions I have is..once the episode reaches the expiration date on the AS website, are there other legal ways to watch the episode..also why does AS not keep the episodes up for the duration of the season?

X_Toad

For legal options, you could buy the season on iTunes or Amazon Prime. I do the former, but I also have stuff on the side to remove the DRM. When will the movie industry go the way of the music industry and remove those?

I'm also pretty sure that AS removes the cable-block on the episodes after a while. Right now I believe that the first four episodes of the season can be watched without a cable subscription if you happen to live in the US.

Reading spoiler tagged stuff is annoying and flow-breaking. It's okay to say that that's worth it for the sake of those who haven't seen the episode, but don't pretend it's a non-issue.

I would personally prefer no bars and occasionally being spoiled to what we have now. I don't see why you wouldn't watch the episode once it's released in any form - we all have internet access here whether or not adult swim will stream the episode to one's country. I'm happy to abide by the guidelines laid out in the thread but I'm going to continue advocating for changing then. Have spoilers ever diminished someone's enjoyment of venture bros in the first place?
