The Venture Brothers - "Fallen Arches" - 9/3/06

This episode airs at 10:30 p.m. EST on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim, or you can watch it online now at Adult Swim Fix:

Spoiler:
When the Guild of Calamitous Intent finally approves Dr. Orpheus for his very own arch nemesis, he calls upon old friends The Alchemist and Jefferson Twilight to resurrect their former super-team, The Order of the Triad. While they audition supervillain candidates at the Venture Compound, a jealous Doc isn't about to let Orpheus steal the show. Let loose the walking eye!

Not quite as strong as the previous ones this season, but still friggin' funny. Favorite scene was Dr. Venture washing the Walking Eye. Well, that or the Whitesnake discussion...

Loved Dean's take of the sex talk. Also LOVED the Manhunter homage by the Monarch. So far this has been a great season.

Still the best animation on TV and Top 5 of television right now period.

I am detecting this season the writers wanting to 'smush in' perhaps a bit too much in too little of space. I find things happening that I don't exactly understand how we got here.

I laughed out loud at, "...and perhaps behind this door you'll find....THE POLAR BEAR from LOST!"

I like the voice of Master Shake as the monk dude. And Hank on the guy's shoulders. Awesome.

This show always has so many little things going on, it's just brilliant.

And is it wrong that I find Triana so hot?

The Monarch's henchmen had a couple of good lines, too, although I found their subplot to be generally blah in this episode.

Washing the walking eye and the discussion about black vampires was good stuff.

man, what a great show. I also loved the "polar bear from LOST" line, along with, well, everything else.

all the different descriptions of the smell had me cracking up, too.

Always great to see a Jonny Quest reference in the show.

The Walking Eye part, not the washing.
