Remembering the Cartoon Network MMO for its 30th Birthday I got introduced to Cartoon Network when I was around ten years old, but it was one of those moments that … Continue Reading FusionFall, the Ultimate Love Letter to Cartoon Network
Adventure Time: Distant Lands- Wizard City Review When HBO announced that the Adventure Time: Distant Lands mini-series would be ending with Wizard City, and not Together Again, fans were confused. … Continue Reading ‘Distant Lands’ Fizzles Out With “Wizard City” Trip
There’s just something so good about getting back to basics in a story, isn’t there? At the start, Adventure Time was the show about Finn & Jake, two bros duking it up in a post-apocalyptic Earth. It was a simple premise! However, then it became this vast high-fantasy world where everyone could potentially be a great story to tell. As a result, Adventure Time became one of the best cartoons of all time! Ironically, this led it to focus less on the duo that we started with. Yet the third Distant Lands special changes all of that by putting the focus firmly on this beautiful bromance. Finn and Jake are together again, because not even the forces of life and death themselves can stop a bromance this good.
Two things to know about Season Two of Close Enough: there’s a lot of parodies of movies. And that there are a lot of voice actors that guest star in it!
When people ship fictional characters and then see them get together, they act like everything will be perfect from then on. That’s even if said ship becomes canon in a story’s grand finale. However, in the real world, finding your soulmate’s half the battle. The other half involves the effort that goes into growing and maintaining a healthy relationship whilst working through problems. Despite getting together in the series finale, Princess Bubblegum and Marcilene still have a lot of baggage that they need to work through. And Obsidian sees them do just that while also answering some lingering questions about their history.
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.
I don’t have kids yet, but I know what one of the great struggles of being a parent is. It’s the eternal struggle to bond with your kid and look cool to them. However, I do know what it’s like dealing with the stress of adulthood. Fortunately, Close Enough has me covered on both.
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.
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.
Two years after the show ended, Adventure Time returns with an all-new special starring everyone’s favorite robot, BMO. Go, BMO!
So with COVID-19 putting a pin in a lot of summer plans, I asked myself “what can I do to help raise morale as the summer solstice arrives?” Then it hit me: share some cartoons that revolve around summer!
Steven Universe Future Episodes 17-20 Review As Tony Stark once said, “part of the journey is the end”. We may not always like it, but it happens all the same. … Continue Reading Steven Universe Says Goodbye
Have you ever looked at two shows and thought that they would work great together? Whether its the premise or the characters they have, you just think these two shows would go together like peanut butter and jelly. However, that dream PB&J crossover sandwich can never happen for one reason or another. Fortunately, the power of fandom’s and the Internet can change that. For my next fan fiction pick, this is one such case where we get the sandwich. Only the peanut butter and jelly’s made from two bright stars.
I knew going into the second half of Steven Universe Future that things were going to get dark. However, after watching last night’s new episodes, I found myself in a state of shock. I swear I could feel my mouth hanging open for a minute or two as I processed what I witnessed. The epilogue series has already given us many dark moments, or at least reflected on them. The penultimate episodes before the series finale, though, may be the darkest the series has ever done.
