South Park Returns in Hour Long Special!

In a year where everyone’s lives have been effectively screwed over by the universe, one show will rise up to challenge all the crap 2020 has thrown at mankind. By making us laugh at just how terrible this year has been! Wednesday, September 30th, 2020: South Park returns. And if they can’t save us from this year, then I don’t think anyone can!

Amphibia Season 2 Episode 8-Lost in Newtopia and Sprig Get's Schooled

Adventures in Newtopia

Well, everyone, the gang’s finally in Newtopia and all settled in for the next leg of their journey. The good news is that that means we get some more episodes of wacky hijinks in a new setting. The bad news? We have to wait a while for the plot to move forward. The silver lining to it all, though? We got another cute picture of little Anne! Enjoy the adventures in Newtopia!

The Owl House Episode 19- Young Blood, Old Souls- The Rise of the Good Witch Luz

The Rise of the Good Witch Luz

Remember everything that happened last episode? Eda succumbed to her curse and got captured by Lilith. We got the first appearance of the show’s apparent antagonist, Emperor Belos. And top it all off, we learned Lilith cursed Eda as kids. Everything had led to Luz hitting rock-bottom, but we all knew that she wasn’t going to let Belos win. As a result, we got to see Luz come into her own as a witch this episode. This marks the rise of the Good Witch Luz.

Amphibia Season Episode 2 Episode 7- Amazing Sunset with Newt Mabel

Newtopia is Awesome!

It’s been a long and arduous journey, but Anne and the Plantar’s have made it to Newtopia. And they found out that Anne’s friend Marcy is the city’s protector in the process. Given what we know about the rest of Season Two, it’s safe to say that we’ll be staying in Newtopia for some time. Which is fine by me, because it looks like an awesome city. After getting a glimpse of it at the end of last week, this week’s episode sees us dive face-first into Newtopian life.

The Owl House Episode 18- Agony of A Witch- Luz Breaks Down in Tears

A Witch Loses a Teacher

So, I went ahead and watched the new episode of The Owl House on the DisneyNOW App on my phone hours before it would air on TV. I’m glad that I did, because I would need the extra time to process what I just saw. Heck, I’m still trying to process everything! But that’s not going to stop me from writing a review of what may be the biggest episode thus far. If you haven’t seen it yet, then turn back now, because this will be filled with spoilers. Spoilers, and tears, because this episode gets very sad as a witch loses a teacher.

Amphibia Season 2 Episode 6-Reunion

Marcy Wu is Here and I Love Her Already!

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.

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.
