Ugly In The Morning

Don't look at me-
I'm ugly in the morning
When the headaches gone
The sun is not.
Forgot to turn the alarm

Huh, I stand corrected. Iíve never gotten to see that special since they donít put it on streaming for whatever reason.

I think, strangely enough, that it is on CBS all access, but I do not see it on hulu. I can't recall if they include it as a part of the 24/7 marathon on adult swim's website or not. I have it because I bought it through itunes forever ago.

Itís definitely included in the marathon. I always seem to hit that episode or State Dinner when I turn it on.

Exploration is ill-advised




I think the joke might be that every single person on 21's suspect list actually did contribute to killing 24; the whole episode is a wild clusterfuck but IIRC, the Monarch and Sheila had captured Helper and planned to send him back with a time bomb inside him, and he'd ended up put in the Monarchmobile, which 21 and 24 had decided to take for a joyride. Brock decides to quit the OSI and goes 'Monarch, I'm taking your fricking car." hence why he's walking over to it as 24 is stuck inside with HeLPER and the bomb because his seat belt's stuck. Boom, both HeLPER and 24's heads go flying, the former getting lodged in Brock's chest.

I just love the concept the Cocoon has an off shift Henchmen bar complete with bar tender who still must wear the uniform with the wings.

And that iirc both The Monarch and Dr.G have been refused service there.

Also, heads-up if you're not aware yet-- You can stream the whole series (plus a bunch of other AS stuff) in the UK using the C4 app!

The total runtime of The Venture Brothers + some padding for quick commercials seems to be pretty close to a multiple of 8 so the whole show advances VERY slowly if you tend to tune in at the same time every day. You'll see like the same three episodes for a few weeks until time drift very slowly gets you to the next three.

There was a pretty strong theory that movie night was caused by Manstrong. He survived the incident because he was too young to watch the movie, which also means he could have been the one to open the doors. He faints whenever faced with something sexual, so the theory was that he wandered into the room Jonas and Vendata were in and found the sex tape left by Vendata. This causes him to black out and accidentally cause the incident by falling on the lever. He then blocks the incident from his memory out of guilt which in turn worsens his sex-phobia.

Yup and it makes the most sense while explaining everything beautifully.

And Vendata is obviously Phantom Spaceman.

If you pay your license fee (and I don't blame you if you don't) you can watch the whole series on the All 4 app at the moment. I don't know how much longer that'll continue, though.

Tempting but I know when I get around to it I might be too late.

The epilogue of Gargantua 2 being a youtube thing and not in the episode itself always baffled me. It sets up the premise of the next 2 seasons, kind of important you'd think.

I had no idea that even existed til your post. But all that stuff was established in Gargantua 2/the first episode of season 6 so itís not like I felt lost without it.

Not as bad as making Gargantua-2 a DVD extra instead of part of the episode listing.

If you've only watched it on TV, or hell pirated it as seasons, or even streamed it sometimes, you don't know the movies exist.

Which is a much bigger what the gently caress when they are missing.

I never saw the pilot until a recent watch through. I'm still expecting them to bring back the characters from that in the finale or something.

Pilot is non-canon unfortunately. At least the commentary makes it heavily sound that way whenever they bring it up and how different it is.

At least one of the voices returned as the French Batman Lover. "I only like the batman because he has the best villains!" I love that line

But they refer to it all the dang time. Angry Brooding Early Brock comes from there and the Monarch and the Henchmen costumes turn up any time they have to do something from the past.

For instance, RUSSIAN GUYOVICH.

I'm just going to hope that somehow 2020 will make a small positive mark by getting this produced on another place because otherwise this year truly has been a complete write off of awful.
