Screen shots from The Diving Bell vs. The Butter Glider

>> Saturday, September 18, 2010

Hey there, Venturoos! As promised (in the vodcast episode that we're currently posting!), we've put together some of the amazing screen shots from the last episode. There was just so much to get excited about. We're also going to give you some commentary on each, so here goes:

This first one is Brock's communicator watch that Hatred now wears. Brock's name is still on it! Just look at the details on this shot. It's just amazing. The animation quality has just gotten better with each new season, and what we love about these little details is that they're only on the screen for a matter of seconds, but we can just see Doc and Jackson working painstakingly over them, regardless of how few frames they appear in. This watch has appeared before (just saw it in season 2 today), but we're just constantly impressed with the details that the creators put into this show.

Remember this magazine? It first appears in 21's flashback to childhood in a puddle during Pinstripes vs. Poltergeists. It appears again when Billy tells White that the boys and Brock are stuck in Dr. Venture's prostate and he has to fish it out. We love that it's a different issue. The details.

Here are the idea boards for when Dr. Venture is unconscious and Billy, White, and the gang are trying to figure out that's wrong with him. We wanted to get a closer look at what was on those boards, so we figured you guys might want a closer look, too. Some of our favorites? Pops pills, red tide, and Dean's theory; lazy face.

Our screen shot collection would hardly be complete without including the images from 21's PowerPoint presentation of the Mark V Hench-Suit. The detail in these shots is just incredible, and we totally love Doc (and Jackson, of course!) for slaving over these and inserting a little extra humor that you can only appreciate if you get stills of them. Moarcha mesh? Pain Onion? Incredible. We love it.

Hmm. The Butter Glider's mandibles seem to be getting fresh with Dr. Venture. We happened across this still by accident, but thought we would include it just because it's pretty funny. Bonus inappropriate joke! You're so glad you stuck around.

And, last but not least, we leave you with Kimson "Pistolé" Albert. Remember when 21 was silencing the henchmen during the de-briefing with Dr. Mrs. The Monarch and he said 'Pistolé'? Well, we still don't understand the reference (we've Googled everything we can think of, and all we get is that it's French for pistol). Did you understand the reference? Please share it with us. We're dying to know!

When 21 shouts "pistolé" it's a reference to Raiders of the Lost Ark. Marion Ravenwood (Karen Allen) shouts it to quiet the crowd during the drinking contest when the crowd thinks she has lost. If you watch the scene, 21 says it exactly as she does. Fantastic reference!

There is a sequence near the end of the episode with the butter glider that seems set up to duplicate the cover of Amazing Spiderman issue 39.
