Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 505: The Laughing Merman (from Hilda)

GC13 and David discuss The Laughing Merman from Hilda.

It’s the one and only episode featuring the one and only Eugene. Are you sad that we don’t have a fourth season? Knowing that this is all of the Eugene we’ll ever have is just a sad way to think about a great episode.

And the Freaky Friends also add a new member: Louise! Is this just missed opportunities: the episode? Oh well, we’ll always have season four in our hearts, and maybe Louise will make a couple of minor appearances…

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 504: The Giantslayer (from Hilda)

GC13 and David discuss The Giantslayer from Hilda.

He may not be tall, and he may not be strong, but the Giantslayer has a mission: annoy all the giants until they feel bad and leave. Hilda’s sad to see them go of course, but Halvor is very keen on it.

Do you wish the giants had stuck around? Do you think they owed something to humanity? Most importantly of all, do you think that humans owe anything to elfkind for… Well, everything?

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 503: The Fairy Mound (from Hilda)

GC13, Soren, and David discuss The Fairy Mound from Hilda.

Can you imagine any episode where Hilda learns what fairy mounds are and her not going to get stuck in one? Because while this may not be Astrid’s finest moment, she also really wants a visit.

Oh well, now we’re headed back to Trolberg. But it looks like a little piece of Tofoten is on its way to see Hilda. We’re not out of the fairy realm yet.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 502: The Train to Tofoten (from Hilda)

GC13, Soren, and David discuss The Train to Tofoten from Hilda.

With the movie over it’s time for another season, sadly the final season of the show. But we have eight great episodes to look forward to!

We’re having a wonderful vacation to Tofoten! It’s great to have met Hilda’s great-aunt Astrid, and her neighbor the Pooka too. (Hey, his desire to not eat an egg sent the team on a great adventure, and as an added bonus, he can squirm like a live plooka. If you know you know.)

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 501: Hilda and the Mountain King

GC13, Soren, and David discuss the movie Hilda and the Mountain King.

As far as cliffhangers go, Hilda being turned into a troll at the end of the second season rated quite highly. Now that we’re discussing the movie, it’s finally time to discuss how that turned out.

We find ourselves living in a world where the political commentary of the movie hits harder than ever (though we haven’t seen any real-world safety patrol officers carrying around assault flashlights just yet), but at least we get a feel-good ending.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 500: It Takes Time (from Summer Camp Island)

GC13 and David discuss It Takes Time, the series finale of Summer Camp Island.

How many tropes did you spot in this episode? Because we found quite a few without really even looking. But if having a beautiful song to montage over is wrong, we don’t want our cartoons to be right.

All of the action is done, even a lot of the drama, but that doesn’t mean that the show ran out of ideas. This is all about letting the characters finally grow as they move into the future, and even about a delicious new snack. (Or a meal.)

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 499: Weather Your Weather (from Summer Camp Island)

GC13 and David discuss Weather Your Weather from Summer Camp Island.

Does anyone think there’s a lot of magic happening for a world where the source of all magic has been destroyed? Last episode it was just a tornado and a ghost, but now we have a pool and a hatch to add to the list, and a mysterious voice. Add another cliffhanger to the pile.

But whether magical or nonmagical, Oscar will still be there to bring the good vibes. Congratulations son, you redeemed yourself from last episode.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 498: Swellington Boots (from Summer Camp Island)

GC13 and David discuss Swellington Boots from Summer Camp Island.

Susie has finally arrived. She’s been the de facto main character of the series for a while, but now that she’s experiencing a story arc she has officially joined the main character club.

Sue and Doug take control of the situation and teach Susie a valuable life lesson, but there’s still a tornado out there and Susie’s going to have to take care of it—while Betsy takes care of Ghost the Boy.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 497: Meeting of the Mounds (from Summer Camp Island)

GC13 and David discuss Meeting of the Mounds from Summer Camp Island.

Another series, another baseball episode filled with wacky hijinks—apparently nine innings worth, which is enough to drive anyone to exhaustion. Susie, you are forgiven—especially because at least you used your magic for a better reason than those other knuckleheads.

Thankfully Oscar’s parents aren’t the brightest, or else they really might really have gone to the president.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 496: Retrace Our Hooves (from Summer Camp Island)

GC13 and David discuss Retrace Our Hooves from Summer Camp Island.

It’s okay Mildred, there’s no rush—we’re sure Susie has time to finish her epic death speech and make it out of the Metaphysical Reserve alive.

And thank goodness that she does! Susie escapes from a not at all sinister place that had incredibly sinister designs on her. What is the Metaphysical Reserve? Why does it do what it does? We’ll probably never know, but at least we’ll know one thing: Pepper gets no respect.
