24 - We hardly knew ye. In his honor I am buying the T-shirt, plus I don't have any cool yellow tees.

HELPeR - He finally had some hilarious screen time in last night's episode and I loved every minute of it.

Brock - Saw it coming, he'll be back.

Laugh out loud parts: When The Monarch starts spinning out of control in his death suit and subsequently vomits in mid-air. 24's flaming head lands in 21's arms. The clone slug dismembered corpses oozing all over the lawn. HELPeR being interrogated, I was laughing so hard my stomach hurt.

The nightvision completely killed me. That's the sort of inanity that's been missing this season. The fact that the Monarch was wearing his leopard-skin thong just made it funnier.

I too enjoyed the Monarch spewing 360º. It was inevitable, he was in over his head.

"Good luck picking up that spare"

Edit: And Venture commenting on the orange jumpsuit being uncomfortable... oh the irony.

I'm gonna freakin' miss the Ray Romano voice.

I may have to dedicate an entire night of Halo to talking like 24.

At least the wait for Season 4 won't be nearly as masochistic as the wait for Season 3 was.

Any word on when this season is going to make it's way to DVD?

Knowing them, December at the earliest, but more likely springtime, in effort to gain some pub for impending season 4.

Speaking of which, I have the feeling that Season 4 will be the final chapter. Even if Adult Swim wants to renew. Jackson and Doc have to feel like tehy've exhausted the source for all the stories it's worth (if this season is any indication).

Not to mention most AS shows don't make it past season 3 (ATHF is the only modern exemption I can think of).

Here's a toughie for you guys: Does anyone recall the episode Mid-Life Chrysalis? In the episode Brock retests for his License to Kill. At the end the instructor commends his performance and mentions that his Father spoke highly of him. I want to say that the name used is Treister, but without the episode handy, I can't verify.

Yeah, I don't know. I know I want more than 4 seasons... but at the same time, I want them to go out on top. too many shows start to suck when they go on to long.

I think 5 or 6 might be the perfect number of seasons. It seems to me like they have more then a seasons worth of things to wrap up... and it also seems like it would be hard to maintain this level of quality for more then a few more years.

Oh yeah, and...

OSI Instructor: Well let's see here, Mr. Samson. On the driving portion you totaled every car but the one you were driving. On the pistol range you refused to use a gun. And uh, oh, hah! Yeah, here's my favorite. On the written you drew the little guy with wings from the Led Zeppelin records.
Brock: Icarus. So uh, what are you trying to tell me here, little man; that you don't like Zep?
[the proctor stands up and rips Brock's test in half]
OSI Instructor: My father is General Traster. You saved his life. The man spoke of you as a god. And you did not disappoint.
Brock: Oh yeah. I used to babysit you.

I watched the scene, just for you.

Brock: So, uh, what are you trying to tell me here, little man. That you don't like Zep?
Tester: My father is General Treister. You saved his life. The man spoke of you as a God. And you did not disappoint.

Honestly, depending how Season 4 goes, I wouldn't mind a 5. Of course, I'd be up for a season that took place entirely in the past (Shortly before season 1). Honestly, all I want is one offs, silly adventures.

I have to say I'm very tempted, especially since I spotted the 24 on the back.

BTW, love the fact that even though this weeks models are Jackson and Doc, Doc is still modeling the girls' shirt.

I gave in and ordered it.

So I suppose this thread has met its end, eh? Also sad.

I think the shirt of the week club is lame. Why make them limited? It's just a stupid gimmick if you ask me.

What do they do with the extra shirts? Donate them to a homeless shelter?

Will I see a homeless man wearing a Rusty's Day Camp For Boy Adventurers shirt?

From what I gather from Jackson's blog, the shirts aren't actually printed until after the order period closes.

Now that I think of it... I may have read on Jackson Publick's blog that they get printed to order.

We can take Doc Hammer hostage and make some demands. He looks like a really sissy boy. He would probably be easy to snag up in a potato sack.

My roommate owns his own t-shirt screenprinting business. He can make some pretty good stuff.

I'm sure something could be...arranged.

She makes her own clothes out of tshirt designs she likes. Since male shirts aren't already altered in any way she prefers to use them as a starting point.

Well if she does something cool to it, give us an after picture. You can even model it again, especially if its frilly or lacy or something.

I don't like that they changed the box color for it, particularly with the blue branding.

That's not always a good indicator, since I've seen some shows shot in widescreen that were 480p, but that's great to know. I've seen some HD anime, and it actually does look a bit crisper.
