I said I would review every episode of the new show, Close Enough. And I meant it. Here’s episode 1!
I am beyond thrilled that Close Enough is now on HBO Max. Ever since it got announced more than two years ago, I’ve been pumped to see it on TV. But then TBS dropped the ball, so HBO Max had to pick it up. And they managed to score a slam dunk with it! Not only do we see series creator JG Quintel in top form, but I feel like this show’s come at such a crucial time in our lives. To be more specific, it’s come out a crucial time in the lives of millennials. We’re moving away from being young adults into full-fledged grownups and parents and facing new challenges. So, it’s great that we have a show that gives a voice to those issues while also making us laugh about them.
Ever since we saw Harley and Ivy kiss, we knew that this whole “Ivy-Kiteman Wedding” wasn’t going to pan out. Heck, we knew it wouldn’t even before then. So to say that I was surprised by how the season finale of Harley Quinn turned out would be a lie. I knew going in that Harley and Ivy would end up together; I just didn’t know how. As it turns out, it was due to Harley…and circumstances beyond their control.
So, after getting some actually helpful advice from the Joker of all people, Harley Quinn made up her mind about Ivy. She’s not going to give up on her love for Ivy or their friendship. However, Dr. Psycho continued to be a royal pain as he manages to mind-control Ivy and orders her to fight Harley to the death in a deadly lover’s quarrel. Man, that is evil.
So how does the Joker react to the fact that he just spent six months in his version of hell? He freaks out, but then realizes it wasn’t so bad
Well, after last week’s lackluster episode, I’m happy to say that Harley Quinn is finally getting back on its feet. With less than three episodes left in the season, now’s the time to start tying the show’s plot threads together. And man, does Harley do it in style! Grab your best clothes, because it’s time for Harley to do Die Hard. Or in this case, Dye Hard.
If you thought that this would just be another family camping episode, then you don’t know Rick and Morty.
So, the last episode of Harley Quinn ended with Harley and Ivy escaping Bane’s Pit. And then they kissed. THEY. KISSED. We knew it was coming, but to happen so suddenly is as crazy as Quinn is. The last time I got the same reaction to a kiss was the infamous “Booth Buddies” episode of Star vs. The Forces of Evil. Unlike that show, though, this episode actually addresses the effects of the kiss. Or rather, Harley denies there being any effects all episode, with terrible results.
Well, this episode of Harley Quinn should have made Harley+Ivy shippers very happy in the end. And then they kisssss…. Shipping wars.
Rick Sanchez, I knew you were a sociopathic monster that cares little besides himself, but dang, man. The “Vat of Acid Episode” hammered home how petty Rick can be. That’s what everyone who’s watched it says, and I see no reason to argue with that. Comedic sociopathy aside, the “Vat of Acid Episode” hammered home an important point for me. That point being how far Rick will go to keep Morty under his toxic influence.
You know what I spent all weekend watching? Solar Opposites, from the co-creator of Rick and Morty, Justin Roiland. It’s awesome!
So, I’ve never actually seen any films from the Alien franchise, but I know the premise. Monstrous aliens that reproduce by injecting hosts with parasitic embryos that hatch by exploding out of their victim’s chests. Something like Alien is easy pickings for the likes of Rick and Morty, and that’s just what happens in their newest episode, “Promortyus.”
In order to take down the Riddler, Harley, Ivy, and “Stephanie” sneak into her new school of Riddler U. It’s back to school for Harley in a new episode! Featuring Batgirl!
