Gargoyles: Cloud Fathers – Episode Review Continued

David Xanatos threatens to destroy an Indian sand carving, but it’s really an elaborate trap for the trickster Coyote, a fey. Why? Immortality, of course. Ignoring previous setbacks in this goal (turning the city to stone, turning his right-hand man’s left hand to stone…), he forges on. Besides facing Xanatos, Goliath and Co will also have to fight the new and improved robot Coyote 4.o. Its magic-imbued iron claws are the least of their worries, though. With all his advantages, will Xanatos finally achieve immortality?

Gargoyles: Cloud Fathers – Episode Review

It’s Xanatos vs the Maza family today. Rather, they’re sticking their noses in his business again and reaping the consequences. But what is his business? Supposedly he’s about to wipe out an Indian sand carving. But why? Wouldn’t you like to know.

There are plenty of mysteries in this ep: a tornado with a coyote’s face tosses Xanatos Construction’s ‘dozers, a security guard looks exactly like a young Peter Maza, Xanatos hunts said security guard… There’s more at play and at stake than meets the eye.

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: Walkabout – Episode Review Continued

Where do you go when nanobots are about to sweep over the globe? If you’re Goliath and Dingo, you travel to the Dreamtime. Once there, it’s up to them to stop a hivemind that seeks to create perfect order out of Earth’s chaos. By that, it means wipe everything out. But how do you stop a being that can control the reality of the Dreamtime? It’ll take some quick thinking and even quicker talking to keep from turning into nanobot fuel.

Gargoyles: Walkabout – Episode Review

If you had the power to reshape the world to your desire, would you use it? Caveat: it could easily destroy the world instead. And you don’t get a spaceship. Fox has the power – or believes she does. Enter the Matrix. No, not the idyllic world of a dystopian future. I mean the flood of metallic silver goo that will cover the globe if it goes uncontrolled. And…it just got loose. It’s up to Dingo and Goliath to settle their differences and work together to save Earth.

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: Upgrade – Episode Review Continued

The Pack is back, and they’re sicker than ever. Wolf is a wolfman, Hyena and Jackal have cybernetic enhancements – or mutilations, rather – and Dingo is in armor. Coyote is the alpha, and he’s not playing around. Who is playing? David Xanatos and Fox. Their chess game will decide the fate of the Pack and the clan. Will the Trio be able to rescue Hudson, Goliath, Elisa and Bronx before it’s too late? The role of second in command also hinges on how the Trio handles this.

Gargoyles: Upgrade – Episode Review

There’s one word for the pack: INSANE. They’re full-on criminals now, but that doesn’t keep the clan from pummeling them. They’re tired of the gargoyles beating them within an inch of their lives, though. Luckily, Coyote, Xanatos’s robot body double, appears. Well, his head does, since that’s all that’s left of him. He’s here to introduce a new line of Xanatos Enterprises products: Cybernetics, robotics, genetics, and armor! The Pack buys in. Now squicky, horrifying, and sobering are three words that describe the Pack.

Behind all this is David Xanatos. Fox plays a role too: his opponent in a chess game. There’s more to the competition than spousal bonding, namely the fate of the clan and the Pack.
