* So in "Powerless in the Face of Death", Orpheus uses his title as Necromancer in the traditional sense and says he can raise the dead. But in "Blood of the Father", he says it's basically just a meaningless title to replace wizard or warlock because they sound silly nowadays. Can he raise the dead or not? I mean, he might not have the actual power to do it, but his reasoning behind being called a necromancer in those two episodes is what really bugs me.

* Just now noticing this, but why on earth did Paul "Humongoloid" Entmann stay small after he was released from the fallout shelter? The "grow" mode of the shrink-ray was shown to work between then and when he was crushed by a rocking chair, and he seemed like he would have been desperate to return to normal.

** It could be a case of ObfuscatingStupidity. Orpheus, while [[LargeHam hammy]], is a nice guy, and I doubt he'd just drop a bombshell like that on Dermott with his usual theatrics. On the other hand, Orpheus and Rusty have a scene in the Halloween special discussing how Venture's behavior towards Dermott has changed, and Orpheus didn't say anything about knowing then either.

** In season 6 its shown that Rusty Venture doesn't seem to understand how high level business and R&D works. This throw away moment seems to this troper as a moment of actually rather sweet character description for rusty in that he doesn't even consider consumer goods that just make the world more pointless as things worth making. He only tries for super science that makes the world a better place and doesn't realize that they aren't fiscally viable. His father might have been exactly the same since he got rich in the height of the cold war when the US government would throw around millions for anything to get them ahead of the Russians, which means that his father might have only gotten rich on those contracts instead of any of his actual inventions like helper and the X-1. This is further proven in that Rusty seems to not know any business contacts that aren't scientific symposium's and the military.

** Remember how much squick there was from one night of them together? Imagine if he forgot why it was gross, and decided to go back. Now imagine how much squick there'd be if they had sex multiple times. Probably for the best that message Hank left for himself didn't specify who he did the deed with.

* Why is the show described as being about Hank & Dean even "at first?" Watching the show it seems like Rusty and Brock are the main characters from the very start, and Hank & Dean are at best {{Supporting Protagonist}}s. Unless the eponymous Venture "Brothers" of the show are Rusty and Jonas Jr.

** It appears that Scooby and the Gang were just like Rusty in that they really did exist, but also were more recognized for having an animated show about them. Action Johnny even mentions sleeping with Velma and getting VD from her during the group therapy episode.

* Did Vendata die along with the other Guild members in "All This And Gargantua-2!" or is he just MIA?

** Side note, Brock and Doc are running an illegal (even in the context of the show) cloning program. Kids dying from a random attack, or a no-name villain of the week? Easily glossed over. But this is a clear, organized assault. Hank and Dean's deaths will be confirmed by the Guild, which will make bringing the boys back a bureaucratic nightmare, to say the least.
