RYAN F> Greg doesn't answer questions in the Comment Room. You'll have to submit them here...


Business as usual...

Hey Greg,before I get into it, I wanted to say I think it's really cool that you do this. I know you don't have to and I want to thank you for doing this. Okay I have two questions if you wouldn't mind hearing them out:

1) [SPOILER] Is the baby in Young Justice Season Three, Episode Six "Rescue Op" Damian Wayne? [/SPOILER]

2) If you can say, how come Young Justice Season Three is split into two releases? Half the season in January and half in June?

In honor of International Women's Day, here's Demona, Yzma and the Queen of Hearts wailing on Tinkerbell:


It is at the guarding of thy death that I am; and I shall be.

Oberon MST3k-ing the Star Wars films?
Now I'd like to see that.

"This is absurd. Does the movie expect me to believe these ursine primitives are capable of defeating an armed legion?"

Though, who knows, maybe he'd like them. Or maybe he'd take their failings in a "Pyramus and Thisbe as-told-by-Peter-Quince" spirit. Hard to say with a millennia-old faerie lord.


So the presence of Demona in Disney Sorcerer's Arena makes me curious what other Gargoyles characters might show up in playable form?

You gotta figure Goliath at bare minimum. Maybe Xanatos and/or Brooklyn (dare we hope... post-Timedance?)

It is at the guarding of thy death that I am; and I shall be.

Oh, I definitely heard Terrence Mann in each of those Star Wars-related reactions. Made my morning, hehehe.

I am now absurdly curious about Oberon's initial reaction to any and every film since, well, the silent era, lol.

CHIROPTER> Man, I'd love to see Oberon's reaction to the prequels...

"Foolish mortal! Why do you prattle of sand!?"

Random thought unrelated to current discussion:

So, I don't remember where, but I recall somewhere Greg W. discussing Oberon's little "Jedi mind trick" on the Eyrie guard in The Gathering and positing that Oberon maybe took the character of Obi-Wan as a tribute to himself.

And now I'm imagining Oberon in 1980, posing as a human, coming out of a theater having just seen The Empire Strikes Back, exulting about "what a marvelous entertainment!" and loudly and carelessly spoiling the twist for all the people in line.

(He also probably talks during movies. Why shouldn't the Lord of Avalon express his opinions on the artistry presented to him, after all?)


It struck me afterwards that echoing Groundskeeper Willie in the captions was rather appropriate, since many years ago (I think it was near the end of the 90's) someone did a fanfic called "The Simpgoyles" which had the cast of "The Simpsons" doing a take-off on "Gargoyles", and Groundskeeper Willie had the Macbeth role. (I remember it included the Birnam Wood incident from Shakespeare, which never made it into "Gargoyles" - though the other half of the Three Witches' "false reassurance" prophecy *did* get into "Gargoyles", if in a subtle way.)

Thanks for pointing that out Todd, sometimes when doing the dialogue I copy/paste from episode transcripts. And sometimes they're aren't the best.

Algae> It's funny how the little things slip by.

Incidentally, to get the proper Scottish feel for Macbeth I used a combination of Robert Burns and Scottish Twitter (Which I noticed has exploded since the latest Pokemon reveal) to get the captions right.

More Disney Sorcerer's Arena news: clip of Demona in action...


Business as usual...

MATTHEW - Thanks for the review of "Enter Macbeth". (Though I spotted a typo in it - you have Goliath saying to Macbeth, "We've done you know wrong". Beware the homonym.)
Todd Jensen

MATTHEW> "Sadly there isn’t an episode titled Exit, Pursued by a Bear."


I can't believe it took me TWENTY-FIVE YEARS to get that the ep's title is a play on stage directions!

All this time, I just though Greg liked Bruce Lee movies.

It is at the guarding of thy death that I am; and I shall be.

Ok, finally finished up my review of "Enter Macbeth" (Warning. For the sake of comedy I may have had Groundskeeper Willie in mind when doing the caption's for Macbeth)
You can find it here: https://mattthemediahunter.home.blog/2019/03/04/review-and-analysis-gargoyles-enter-macbeth/

Also, if you missed my review for "Deadly Force" you can find that here: https://mattthemediahunter.home.blog/2019/02/24/review-and-analysis-gargoyles-deadly-force/

Feedback is always appreciated.

I'll be taking a break for a few months before I finish up Season 1. I'm not sure when I'll get around to it but I'd like to cover some new topics and try out some other ideas in the future.

Maybe they're too young to remember the series when it originally aired (and "Gargoyles" never seems to have become as famous as "DuckTales" or "Darkwing Duck").

The most annoying thing for me about the game (other than being iOS-only) thus far is when people review what's been shown off on YouTube and the like, they get to Demona...and have no clue who she is.

There is balance in all things. Live in symmetry with the world around you. If you must blow things up and steal from those around you, THAT'S WHAT RPGS ARE FOR!

Thanks for the head-up! That's such awesome news. I would've ignored it otherwise, but Demona makes any game worth playing. 😁

Sorry for the double post but since this didn't get any traction last week, Disney just announced a new mobile game called Disney Sorcerer's Arena and um...

Demona's a playable character!


Also for your consideration; Mickey, Ariel & Sully vs the Steel Clan..


For the honor of love!
