Ahh, it’s hard to believe that it’s been five years since the series finale of Phineas and Ferb. And now we stand on the cusp of a new Phineas and Ferb movie on Disney+. So to celebrate, I’m doing something special all week.
The Owl House, Episode 17 Review I know it’s only been seven months since The Owl House first premiered on Disney Channel, but thanks to how the world is, it … Continue Reading Owl House Sports Episode
We’ve known since the start that when Anne got zapped to Amphibia, her friends Sasha and Marcy went along with her. We learned almost at the start that Sasha was with the Toads, but Marcy? Her whereabouts remained unknown, and led to a lot of fan theories and ideas. Then the Season Two trailer rolled along, confirming that the two would meet. Now, at last, that moment is here: Anne and the Plantars are in Newtopia! Does it live up to the hype, though, and is Marcy as good a character as we hoped? The short answer is: yes and yes.
Earlier this week, Bryan Konietzko and Michael DiMartino, co-creators of Avatar: the Last Airbender, announced they’re leaving Netflix’s live-action adaptation due to creative differences. While rumors still abound, here’s my two cents on this turn of events.
No ifs, ands, or buts about it: Disney animation was on absolute fire this weekend! First, we had Adam McArthur guest-starring on Big City Greens (complete with Marco’s hairstyle and mole.) We ended the night with an enchanting Grom Night with massive shipping fuel. But in between then was the main attraction, the moment we’ve all been waiting for: the Amphibia+Gravity Falls crossover episode! And it was everything fans of Gravity Falls could have wanted, and then some.

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.
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.
The Owl House Episode 14 Review Folks, I have no idea why, but for some reason, we got two episodes of The Owl House. But I’m not going to look … Continue Reading King’s Small Problem at the Carninval
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.
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?
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!
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.
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.
You want to know what I decided after watching this episode? It’s that I’m never getting any procedure like what Josh almost went through.
We are now past the halfway point for the first batch of episodes for Close Enough. So far, my love for this show has not diminished in the slightest. Especially since this next episode has to deal with two of my favorite subjects: technology and video games.
