It had continued weekly runs of Teen Titans Go! and Total Dramarama, the start of a weekly run for Victor and Valentino, the conclusion of Elliott From Earth’s first season, the conclusion of Ben 10, ten new episodes from Apple and Onion, and two movies which got higher ratings than everything else.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 346: It’s About Time

GC13 and Ken make way to Invincible to discuss its first episode, It’s About Time. It sure is.

Yep, neither of them have ever read the comic series, but that just means they approach the show without expectations. Well, except for one expectation—waiting for a heel turn.  Don’t worry though, it still managed to be surprising.

So if you have Amazon Prime, be sure to watch along.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 345: NanoZim

GC13 and David discuss NanoZim from Invader Zim.

Do you want to see what a 3D budget can do in an early 2000s show? Well, NanoZim is your episode. Dib and Zim may both be dumb, but the money was very wisely spent.

Because Everyone Loves a Callback: Hilda’s Jorts Incident

As an episodic series, Hilda sends its characters off on different adventures not connected by a tight story arc. That’s not to say that it doesn’t matter what order you watch Hilda’s episodes in—it definitely does.

Take The Jorts Incident for example: it brings back the tide mice from Hilda’s first season to tell another story with them, while at the same time showing us how Frida has grown as a witch since earlier in the season.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 344: Mom Soon

GC13 and David discuss Mom Soon from Summer Camp Island.

So, Skadi punches clouds and craves her mother’s approval, while Hedgehog boils pianos and doesn’t care much about her mother’s approval. It seems like there are some lessons that can be taught here, even if it ends up putting Hedgehog in debt.

And yes, there’s also more fuel for the retcon fire.

Brigid’s Return: Craig of the Creek’s Children of the Dog

Brigid was one of Craig of the Creek’s one-episode characters for over two years, but The Children of the Dog finally brought her back. No longer a cult leader, Brigid seems to have gone mainstream by becoming the creek version of a televangelist.

It’s not a direction I saw coming, but Brigid remains. Do you think Craig of the Creek could bring her back for a third episode?

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 343: Adventures in Pet Training

GC13 and David discuss Adventures in Pet Training from Glitch Techs.

Do you think with your thumper, or your thinker? That is to say: what is a glitch but a– Wait, wrong episode!

Delve deep into the philosophy of clones and software this episode, thanks to the wonders of science-fiction. Also, if 2016’s Ghostbusters and Wreck-It Ralph are being referenced in cartoons now, does that make us old?
