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.

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.

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.

The men have hated him for 1000 years because they blame him for their deaths. Will Goliath be able to resist their illusions? He’ll have to act fast; if he doesn’t, he’ll be a ghost instead.

Gargoyles: Shadows of the Past – Episode Review

When Avalon sends the skiff – and Goliath, Elisa, Angela, and Bronx – to the original site of Castle Wyvern in Scotland, Goliath is excited. He wants to show off his old home. But a storm is brewing, and not just the thunder-and-lightning kind. Strange things are happening; Goliath is hallucinating. Is it just old, painful memories surfacing, or are there other powers at work? This is the site of many deaths, after all, not the least of which are Hakon’s and the Captain of the Guard’s. Does the residue of this destruction and despair pollute the region? Maybe the locals have good reason to call the place haunted…

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.
