So who watched the season premiere tonight?

I'm glad to say that it ranks up there with the best of the first season. This one is actually pretty packed with goodness: You get some sadness, some happiness, some creepiness, some attempted prison rape, and a crack about Kevin Smith's beard.

if they can keep up this pace, then this may end up being better than season 1.

All in all: Still my favorite animated show on the air.

If anyone hasn't picked up the season 1 DVD yet (and has a spare 25 bucks), and if you love 60's/70's era comics, Johnny Quest cartoons, and pop culture in general, then you'll probably dig (plus it's actually pretty well written).

Damn! I missed it. I'll need to catch a rerun and then set my DVR to pick up the other episodes.

Eh. It was a decent episode. Not as good as season one, but they're just picking up. I don't know what felt off to me... it just didn't feel as wild as some of the better episodes, I suppose.

Probably one of my favorite shows on right now. Definitely my favorite animated shows.

Loved the montage of Hank and Dean's numerous deaths and any scene with the Monarch.

The show is very smart and silly at once. It's like a Comic Book on acid.

I like that Dr. Venture runs off to "discover" himself after boys die. Which begs the question: how many times has he done that the other times the boys died?

That montage was freakin' hilarious.

Wow. Tonights was something. One of the best episodes of any show I've seen for a long time.
