Amphibia Season 2 Episode 5- The Curator and Frog Soos

Gravity Falls+ Amphibia Crossover At Last

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.

Animation’s Going to Own this Summer

Even with how rotten 2020’s been, It’s nice to know that there’s still things that I can honestly look forward to. And considering how this week’s going to have the premiere of a show I know I’ll love and the return of two shows I already love, I am one happy camper. Earlier today, Disney released teasers showing what’s next for its shows Amphibia, Big City Greens, and The Owl House. And I knew that I just had to come here and gush about them.

The Owl House Episode 11 "Adventure in the Elements"

Feel the Magic Flow Around You

I actually debated on whether or not I should review this episode now or wit for it to premiere in the West. However, I realized that you should never look a gift horse in the mouth and enjoy that we got a new episode of The Owl House. An episode that sees Luz take the next step in her magic training in a good old fashioned magic boot camp.

Secret of the Palisman

It’s mid-season finale time for The Owl House, and with no word on when the other episodes come out, the show has to stick the landing. The show’s already given us great moments and big mysteries, which I have been avidly keeping track of. In “Escape of the Palisman”, the writers touch on a recurring mystery in the series. In addition, they set up a new one alongside it.

The Owl House Episode 8 "Once Upon a Swap" Biggest Moments

The Freaky Friday Episode

Ah, the body swap/life swap scenario. It’s a trope so popular, it has its own page on tvtropes.org. When two or more characters think the other has it easy, they swap places for a while. They then realize the hardships they each deal with, learn to appreciate their lives, and make up. I’ve seen it done many times in cartoons, to the point where it no longer has the same appeal. As a result, this week’s episode of The Owl House, while funny, didn’t fully hit the mark for me. But was still funny.

Being the Chosen One’s Overrated

I’ve seen a lot of great stories that revolve around a special Chosen One meant to fulfill an important destiny. I think, from a cultural perspective, they’re meant to make everyone feel special and capable of being a chosen one. However, the last few years of TV seem to be going in the opposite direction, acting like prophecies and chosen one’s are bunk. Now The Owl House is following that route in its second episode. An episode which, I may end, seemed like a step down from the premiere.
