Eh, go back and watch VB Season 1. It's not as good as you remember. I rate HQ as better than S1 and S2 of Venture Bros. Just not as good as S4 And you're setting a pretty high bar.I want to like this but all it does it constantly remind me of Venture Bros but not as good.
Yep - Psycho is definitely my favourite of Harley's crew. But Poison Ivy is probably my favourite. I also like the take they have on Batman in this where he's highly competent but also not some dumb Batgod interpretation. His fight with Poison Ivy goes sort of how it should - she's definitely more powerful but he holds his own. Also, love their take on that little shit Damien.It reminds me of the Venture Bros a lot but as I actually totally wish we had more Venture Bros, I can't say that's a bad thing. Dr. Psycho is probably my favorite, which is a little weird because in the comics he is just so fucking detestable. He's still awful here but in a funny way. I love his and Ivy's one-liners too. Very funny show, it lets Harley be a villain and doesn't try to moralize. And despite being cartoonish and absurd it's got some humanity to it. So yeah overall very good.
There's also a sly little ribbing of all the Harley-Ivy shippers in that episode if you're quick. Yeah, - verdict is now in. I really like this show.
