Gargoyles: The Green – Episode Review

It’s Captain Planet meets Gargoyles! Sort of. There are no rings that summon a green defender of the Earth. There is, however, a magical artifact that bestows the ability to stay awake during the day to the gargoyles. (We humans have a similar invention: caffeine.) Irreplaceable rain-forest plants are in danger from corporate America’s greed, and only a small band of native gargoyles stands between them and extinction. Jackal and Hyena have signed on as contract killers, eager to hunt down the gargoyles. Can Goliath, Angela, Elisa, and Bronx make a difference?

Gargoyles: The New Olympians – Episode Review

Humans fear what they don’t understand, but is this also true of other sentient races? What about races more technologically advanced than humans? Elisa is about to find the answer. To make matters worse, she becomes the pawn of Proteus, a shapeshifting murderer who would love nothing better than to destroy the hidden island of New Olympus. Think Loki minus the aliens from another dimension.

Gargoyles: Grief – Episode Review Continued

What would you do if you had the power of life and death at your command? And unlike Light in Death Note, you are completely unaccountable, free to use the power as you will? That’s the question our favorite sociopath Jackal answers. It’s not gonna be pretty. But the gargoyles are ready for action! Or are they? Not when they’re so old they can barely walk. The world is at the Anubis-infused Jackal’s mercy. It’s up to the Emir to make a choice.

Gargoyles: Grief – Episode Review

Disney Gargoyles logo with Goliath grief

There is only one word for this episode: WRONG. I think I said the same thing about the last episode the Pack was in, Upgrade. Seems to be a theme with them.This episode takes the cake, though – and it takes Anubis, God of Death. We’re talking about the Egyptian god, not the one from Stephen King’s work or Stargate SG-1. He who controls Anubis controls life. And death. Xanatos doesn’t care about that, he simply wants immortality. The Pack is along to see his will is done by the Emir, a man skilled in the ways of Egyptian lore and magic. But when you play God, you often summon the Devil.

It’s up to the gargoyles and Elisa to stop Thailog and Demona’s plan, and save Macbeth from 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: Monsters- Episode Review

I was trying to summarize this ep’s plot, and it sounded like one of those dreams you have after taking benadryl and eating pepperoni, anchovies, pineapple pizza. Trippy, to say the least. It sounded something like this: It’s the ep where Angela meets Nessie and they spend the whole episode bonding, while Sevarius is using a leviathan robot sub to try to catch another Nessie so he can make more monsters, despite the fact that he can make perfect clones in less than 12 months, and is able to meld eel cat bat DNA with humans to create creatures even more impressive than gargoyles. It’s basically a snark, sarcasm, and witticism orgy for Sevarius. Welcome to Monsters, or The Ode to Tim Curry, as I call it.
