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 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!
Oh my god, you guys! I knew that I had missed J.G. Quintel’s work since Regular Show came to an end in 2018. But after seeing all the hype-building that Warner Bros has been doing for his upcoming show, Close Enough, I realized just how much I missed seeing his stuff!
Okay, people, on this day one year ago, we saw the ending to two awesome shows. One of them was an animated cartoon, while the other was an adaptation of the life’s work of a guy that’s dragging his heels on finishing his work. Rather than talk about the ending to Game of Thrones since there’s enough hate for that, I wanted to talk about the end to the other good show on May 19th, 2019.
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.
Here’s to my all-time favorite cartoon, Avatar: The Last Airbender! I could go on for hours and hours about how amazing this show is. From the fighting based on real-world martial arts to the inspiration from real-world cultures, to its incorporation of anime art-styles. Avatar: The Last Airbender was, is, and hopefully always will be, the gold standard by which I judge cartoons. And I’m glad it’s up on Netflix in America.
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.”
Well, I knew it was only a matter of time before Joker re-appeared. Albeit, he doesn’t remember being Joker. But can he truly change for the better?
Against my better judgment (I’m trying to adopt a normal sleep schedule), I stayed up to watch the midseason premiere of Rick and Morty. As a result, I watched an episode that I can only describe as meta fourth-wall breaking high on pot. And the ending was enough to make what happened in Lost look sane.
You know what my favorite part of the new episode of Harley Quinn was. They tore a new at toxic fans and haters. Also, Batman’s back.
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.
We know that the Joker left a lot of mental scars on Harley Quinn before she finally dumped him. One of the scars that no one ever considered, though, was how skewed her concept of love. Or rather, she doesn’t think love is real. As she gets back to fighting Mr. Freeze, though, she gets a much-needed lesson on love and how it can thaw a cold heart.
It is now official. The new DuckTales may be known as the Disney Afternoon Universe, or DAU. Why? Because most Disney Afternoon shows are now in it.
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!
