HMCWC Special: The Owl House Season One

HMCWC Special: The Owl House Season One

September 10, 2020

Chris is not with me this week. I was joined by Ally from Knights of Wren podcast to discuss season one of The Owl House.

We talked about our favorite episodes of the season, broke down each of the characters and their arcs, what Grom means to an old queer like me, speculated about season two, and so much more!

THERE WILL BE SPOILERS!

HMCWC E12: Summerween

HMCWC E12: Summerween

September 3, 2020

Grab your costume and break out the Jack-O-Melons, because this week we're discussing Gravity Falls "Summerween!"

We love the Summerween Trickster, especially Hope. He's hot. The conflict with the Mystery Twins is personal while Stan has his own petty battle. Then, we debate if this is a good Halloween episode or not.

Get ready, because it's SPOOOOOKY!

HMCWC E11: Little Dipper

HMCWC E11: Little Dipper

August 27, 2020

It's a big episode for a tiny plotline! This week we talk about "Little Dipper!"

We open with... TANGENTS! Lots of tangents as we discuss cat grooming, The Owl House, and Harry Potter fandom reclaiming their franchise from J.K. Rowling.

When we actually get to Gravity Falls, Gideon absolutely steals the show this episode. His family is a horror story. The Mystery Twins conflicts are becoming more nuanced. Only Stan can balance being a con man and a parental figure.

All this and more!

HMCWC E10: Fight Fighters

HMCWC E10: Fight Fighters

August 20, 2020

Put in those cheat codes, because it's time to talk about Gravity Falls "Fight Fighters!"

We talk about how this is a great example of how to pay homage to another medium while still telling the story of the show. Dipper is again caught in a lie, but this time it hurts someone else. We discuss Robbie's conscious in context to his rivalry with Dipper. Soos is in Mabel's role this week. And more!

Also, we have a new segment in the show. I purchased Journal #3, so we will read the entries from the journal going forward!

HMCWC E9: The Time Traveler’s Pig

August 13, 2020

Hold one to your hats, because we're time hopping this week in Gravity Falls' "The Time Traveler's Pig!"

We love the time traveling rules of Gravity Falls, and Blendin is a great character. This is the first time where the Mystery Twins are pitted against each other which makes for great drama. But the most important thing...

I ACCIDENTALLY (minor) SPOILED CHRIS! 

This and more! Check it out!

HMCWC E8: Irrational Treasure

August 6, 2020

Let's get weird! We're talking Gravity Falls "Irrational Treasure!"

We love the government conspiracy, Blubs and Durland are adorable, the Mystery Twins have great development, Quentin Trembley is a fine character in small amounts, and MORE!

Also, Chris gets stumped for the first time by a cryptogram.

HMCWC E7: Double Dipper

HMCWC E7: Double Dipper

July 30, 2020

We're back with Gravity Falls episode seven "Double Dipper!" 

Mabel's story is the best part of this episode. Grenda and Candy are interesting. Pacifica is a great rival that brings out the best in Mabel's characters. They do so much with this story in a shorter amount of time.

Dipper's plot it fine. It's nothing new. We love Tyrone and Paper Jam Dipper!

We get into some movie tangents! And more!

HMCWC E6: Dipper vs Manliness

HMCWC E6: Dipper vs Manliness

July 23, 2020

This week we talk about Gravity Falls episode six "Dipper vs Manliness!"

We discuss toxic masculinity how it's portrayed here and in other animated shows, and more importantly, how Dipper reacts to it. We sing a little Disco Girl while looking at the parody music of Gravity Falls. Then we get into the significance of Mabel's Scrapbook, the other important book of the series (without spoiling Chris of course).
