Couldn't quite catch this on Sunday, so I caught up on adultswim.com. Dr. Venture running a day camp is a direction I'm shocked they didn't try and go in before. I loved it. Sgt. Hatred's bad timing was hilarious and Dr. Girlfriend's evil midgets stole the show for me again, especially when they eventually got back to the Monarch.
And, of course, there will be a lot of speculation around the "Are you sure he's my real father?" ending. If you haven't seen it yet, go on Adult Swim's site and watch it now!
Oh man, I was waiting for this thread to come along. This episode was the best of the season so far and one of my top 3 of the whole series. Everything was funny as hell: a sober but frightening Action Johnny bitching out his father, the radon psa by the order of the triad, the epic beatdown by Dean on Hank's new friend, and especially Dr. Venture mocking Hank with "When they have a Venture Bros. TV show, then it will be all about you".
So many quoteable lines. My faves would have to be when they visit the biodome:
Boy: "Why is it so dirty?" Dr. Venture: "My father died before he taught me to care."
I'm with you on the speculation on the father ending, but I'm more interested in figuring out what's up with Dr. Mrs. The Monarch and the Moppetts. The Monarch sent them to the camp, but apperantly they were following her orders. Was she just using them to keep The Monarch from arching on the Ventures or is she trying to set him up for something more sinister?
This, I think, was my least favorite episode of the season. The new kid being a jerk to everybody didn't do much for me (although Dean going apeshit on him was great), and I thought the biodome scene went on just a bit too long. It's not that I thought this was a bad episode, but I think it's weaker than the other episodes this season. On the other hand, I am seriously considering picking up this week's shirt. It has the best design I've seen so far, except for the Guild shirt, which I was too late to purchase.

I think it was the former, since the Monarch was complaining the whole time that they kept missing everything important and not getting him any info. So one assumes that her orders were to not give him any real info so he can't arch. I DO think the Moppets are going to try a coup on their own tho, they had them talking about gassing the Monarch in his sleep episode before last and they clearly don't look at DMTM as a mommy figure... I think the first time they were talked about in the series it was even mentioned that she couldn't control them and that's why she gave up being Lady Au Pair.
For a group of guys who were making fun of the fans for being turned on by cartoon girls during their panel at the NY Comic Con, that new costume is certainly um... risque.
Can anybody read the fine print on the very opening of this episode? We see the rainbow flag, & the Rusty-lightbulb-head says, "Hi, kids! It's time for adventure." Below the head is a paragraph, that I can't quite read on my TV. It seems to start something like "Camp size has been ??? based on a survey conducted in 1978. All camps created after ..." Anybody?
And is there a kid climbing onto some sort of giant vulture/dinosaur in the background?
Camp size has been estimated based on a survey conducted in 1978. All camps created after cited survey have not been taken into consideration. Rusty's Day Camp is a privately owned camp. Therefore any and all children residing on the premises are to be considered trespassers. Rusty's Day Camp holds the right to prosecute any or all trespassers that do not uphold the rules and regulations stipulated in the supplied document entitled "I'm A Good Day Camper".

Ok, I'm a little late to this party, but I'm definitely on board for this one. It's a Bruce Timm production, it's a bridge between "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight", and it's a return to the Batman role for Kevin Conroy.
