The relentlessly self-referential, universe-expanding show that is The Venture Bros. boasts one of TV’s most complex continuities — think Game of Thrones meets Arrested Development, but with more pulpy super-science. It’s so complex, in fact, that even fans have a hard time remembering who is important and why. Take the ostensible heroes of the show, Hank and Dean Venture. Are they really the titular Venture Bros.? Or was that all sleight of hand to distract early viewers from the other Venture Bros.? The show’s real protagonist (or, well, anti-hero) is Dr. Thaddeus S. “Rusty” Venture, after all, and his late-born (to put it mildly) twin brother, Dr. Jonas “J.J.” Venture, Jr., isn’t introduced until the end of season one. Or maybe it’s all so showrunners Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer can delay having to answer whether Rusty and his archenemy, the Monarch, are actually brothers? ”The convoluted backstory, that was … [Read more...] about Jonas Venture, Sr. is just the beginning of Venture Bros. self-referential season 7

This week’s Star Trek Discovery, episode 14, The War Without, the War Within, is a bit of a mess, to be honest. Stuck right between the climax of a major storyline and the rushed build-up to a season climax (and one based around a shock new reveal at that), it needs room to look both forward and back, but alas doesn’t have the time to do either very well. And thus, for more reasons than usual, we have questions. Some of them stem from unclear writing and vaguely explained character motivations, most definitely. But not all. Because there’s also a hell of a lot going on aboard the Discovery right now. The Mirror Universe version of Georgiou is on board, for a start. So are the Federation versions of Admiral Cornwell and Sarek, who now know all about the Mirror Universe and evil Lorca. The Federation itself is near enough in flames. The Klingons are moving in on Earth. And there’s still all the aftermath from Tyler-Voq, L’Rell, Doctor Culber, and basically … [Read more...] about 7 questions I have after watching Star Trek Discovery season 1 episode 14
