The Owl House Episode 15- Understanding Willow and Willow and Amity's Memories

Understanding Willow on The Owl House

If I had to choose the most interesting character on The Owl House, I wouldn’t choose Luz, King, or Eda. Instead, I’d choose Amity Blight. At first, we thought she was a condescending jerk. Then we learned that she was more complex than that. She puts a lot of pressure on herself, her older siblings can be a pain, and her “friends” are shallow as they come. The only real friend she had was Willow, yet she broke that off years ago. We had our theories as to why she ended her friendship with Willow, but it’s this episode that confirms them.

Amphibia Season 2 Episode 4- Quarreler's Pass and Toadcatcher-Sasha and Grime

Relationships at the Heart of Amphibia

You know what I consider to be one of the staples to a great show? Is it the plot; the music; the action and drama? All of these are considered, but one factor that I feel gets overlooked is the relationships between characters. As a show progresses, we expect to new dynamics in the relationships between the characters as they grow and change. And in this week’s episode of Amphibia, two relationships that have not gotten much focus take center-stage in two delightful episodes.

Amphibia Season 2 Episode 3- Truck Stop Polly and A Caravan Named Desire

Road Trip Shenangians on Amphibia

One of the downsides to shows that focus on serialized elements is that episodes is that there’s less room for events that don’t seem to move the plot forward. However, I’ve come to realize that even these filler episodes serve a purpose. When a show’s finished its run, we’ll look back on these fun little episodes in a much better light. Case in point, this week’s episode of Amphibia did little to advance the plot forward. However, it did give us two fun short stories.

The Owl House Episode 13- First Day at Hexside and not a Good Impression

School is Now In Session At Hexside

It may have taken some hard work on both her and Eda’s parts, but it’s finally paying off for Luz. At last, she’s going to be attending Hexside and learn how to be a witch. But when the educational system wants kids to stick to a single path, can Luz really manage to do that? Or is she going to have to shake things up?

Amphibia Season 2 Episode 2- The Ballad of Hopediah Plantar and Anne Hunter

I’ve Now Coined the Term “Anne Dance”

If you guys haven’t seen the new season of Amphibia yet, then you’re missing out on quality TV right now. It’s not like we can do much this summer, anyway. Having hit the ground running last week, the show maintains its momentum with meme-worthy faces. Not to mention, we see Anne doing what I’m now dubbing as “The Anne Dance.” If that blows up on Social Media, I coined it!

Close Enough Episode 8- The Canine Guy

I Didn’t Know Quintel Liked Jim Carrey

Well, here we are at the apparent end to the first season of Close Enough. I don’t know what’s crazier: the fact that I binged it all, or that I wrote all these reviews in one day? Fortunately, my love for this show has kept me going, and the last episode may be one of the funniest ones Quintel’s done. I had no idea he was such a big fan of Jim Carrey.

Close Enough Episode 7B- Snailin' Time

Close Enough’s Guide to Relationships

So, remember a few posts ago about how I said I’m taking notes on how to be a good parent? Well, after this episode, I’ve added two new notes to my book. Firstly, when I get married, I need to make an effort to keep the romantic spark alive with my spouse. Secondly, I need to make time to spend it with my future kids. This is the Quintel guide to important relationships.

Amphibia Season Two Opener

Amphibia Returns to Hit the Open Road

We’ve waited nearly a year for it to come back. And while it was touch and go for a bit thanks to COVID-19, I’m happy to say that Amphibia’s here with a new season. If you guys saw my post on the season two trailer, then you know just how hyped I’ve been for Season Two. The Plantar’s are traveling beyond the valley in the journey of a lifetime. There’s gonna be danger, mystery, and more to be found. So without further ado, let’s begin the review.

Close Enough Episode 2- Logan's Run'd- Josh and Emily's "Night"

Youth vs. Adulting on Close Enough

I used to think that the transitions from kid to teen and teen to adult were hard. Then I realized that its the transition from our 20s to 30s that’s the real challenge! You know you have to deal with adulting and its ups and downs, but want to stay young. And in the second episode of Close Enough, Emily and Josh deal with that exact problem.
