Gargoyles: The Journey – Episode Review Continued

It’s the final half of the final episode of Gargoyles. The Greg-approved part of the series, that is. The Quarrymen are closing in on Goliath and Elisa. After taking a bullet to the wing, Goliath is reduced to climbing and jumping. Can he escape the vengeance-fueled John Castaway? In the meantime, Xanatos makes a dangerous move by ignoring the summons of the Illuminati. What i

Gargoyles: The Journey – Episode Review

This is episode 1 of the Goliath Chronicles. It’s the only episode of TGC I’m going to review, because really it’s the only one that follows cannon. The gargoyles are slowly adjusting to their new life under House Xanatos’s roof, but the populace of New York is not about to adjust to the idea of gargoyles existing. Jon Canmore takes advantage of this, forming the Quarrymen, a homicidal group bent on killing the gargoyles. It’s basically a scene-for-scene, shot-for-shot, word-for-word play of the first two SLG (Slave Labor Graphics) comics.

Gargoyles: Pendragon – Episode Review

At the same time, Macbeth, the King of Scotland and Father of the King Thereafter, is awaiting a magical prize to drop from a gate in time and space. Turns out that the prize is Arthur and Griff. Bummer. But the search is on for Excalibur, which may in fact be in the Brooklyn Gardens. Which king is worthy to wield the legendary blade?

Gargoyles: Sanctuary – Episode Review Continued

Thailog and Demona have teamed up to take Macbeth’s wealth. The plan involves a marriage and a dungeon, and I’m not speaking figuratively. Macbeth hasn’t lived 1000 years just to end in a cell in his basement, though. His time to end it all has come! It’s up to the gargoyles and Elisa to stop Thailog and Demona’s plan, and save Macbeth from himself.

Gargoyles: Sanctuary – Episode Review

The Weird Sisters free Demona and Macbeth from their spell, and helpfully wiped their memories when they left Avalon. We haven’t heard anything from the pair since they sailed Into the Mists. Now they’re back. And in love. That’s right, this is the episode where you will see Macbeth and Demona, sworn enemies, swear their love for one another, embrace, kiss, and even…wait for it…marry. But all is not as it seems. The monster of Notre Dame Cathedral is in town, and he and Demona are no strangers. It’s up to Elisa to figure out what is going on, since Goliath is fixated on Demona’s presence. Angela is about to discover a secret about her mother. And Macbeth will discover a secret about himself.

Better Call Saul: Gargoyles Edition

GregXB commented on the Golem post that Halcyon Renard is very similar to Charles “Chuck” McGill from Better Call Saul. Well, that kicked off a Twitter convo comparing Gargoyles characters to BCS characters.

Just for fun, I bring you our ideas for Better Call Gargoyles.

Gargoyles: Avalon Part 3 – Episode Review Continued

The villains have assembled their forces. So have the protagonists. King Arthur is on the gargoyles’ side, but he lacks Excalibur, his knights, and Merlin. Will his warrior skills hold true after 1000+ years of enchanted sleep? He’ll be facing Demona and Macbeth, warriors who have been honing their skills for those 1000+ years. The Weird Sisters are also going to battle; they’ll face Magus, who lost the Grimorum and his magic decades ago. To top things off, the Archmage will be using all the power of the Grimorum Arcanorum, Phoenix Gate, and Eye of Odin to fight Goliath. It’s going to take real skill on the antagonists’ part to lose this game.

Gargoyles: Avalon Part 3 – Episode Review

Three hours remain before the sun rises and the day of vengeance begins for the Archmage. Goliath, Angela, and Gabriel set off to face the Archmage, while Elisa and Magus venture into the Hollow Hill in search of the Sleeping King. The protagonists are up against some stiff competition from the villains. But will a new player in the game turn the tide? Hint: his best friend was Merlin. This is no time for our villains to get complacent, even if it seems they’ve won the day.
