Gargoyles: The Reckoning – Episode Review

If you can’t kill your enemy, what do you do with them? Put them in jail, right? What if you don’t have one? A jail, that is. Or laws, a judge, or a jury. You get your buddies to help you watch them. Yes, it cuts in on your social life, but it’s better than the alternative. The clan has captured Demona, and is guarding her in the Labyrinth. But this might be just what she wants.

Gargoyles Original Show Pitch

I know we’ve all seen this, but since we’re approaching the end of the series, I thought it would be good to see how far we’ve come. Gargoyles was originally a comedy, but Disney didn’t like the idea. It was a good call, for once. So back to the drawing board Greg went. This pitch is somewhere between comedy and our Gargoyles.

Gargoyles: Ill Met by Moonlight – Episode Review

Goliath and Co return to Avalon, but so does another party: The Weird Sisters and the rulers of Avalon. Lord Oberon and Queen Titania have returned after their 1001-year exile.

To make it fair, Titania decreases his magical power to that of one of his Children. But as the gargoyles are about to find out, he’s still frighteningly powerful. How can mortals who lack any magic possibly stand up to the Lord of Avalon? And what is Titania up to?
