The 60-minute Venture Bros. finale wasn't only the best TV episode about a $500 homeschooled prom held in an airplane hangar, it was probably the most satisfying episode yet. I'll wager a "Rusty Venture" on it.
It's sometimes hard to write VB recaps given that the show's middling episodes are still head and shoulders above most other TV shows. Season 4.5 never gave us a flat-out bad episode, but certain episodes — such as "The Silent Partners" and "Bright Lights, Dean City" — felt stifled by the show's 30-minute limit. Furthermore, this season overutilized certain characters at the expense of others. Billy and Pete White were in every episode, whereas leads like Doc and the Monarch got the short shrift.
