Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 351: The Glitch Modder

GC13 and David discuss The Glitch Modder from Glitch Techs.

Introducing a new character is a heck of a way to start a season (or the second half of a season for you sticklers). Well, Ridley… If you’ve seen the episode you’ll know, and if you haven’t seen the episode then what are you waiting for?

It’s good to see that Mitch is still in jerk mode. Some things never change. Or… Do they?

This will be the final episode of the podcast also available on YouTube.

Magical and Mundane: How Steven Universe Introduces Its Thesis in Two Episodes

Steven Universe is a show about the mixing of the magical and the mundane (that is to say: the non-magical), and the fascination the magical can have with what we might call ordinary. Rather than spending its first two episodes telling you where in the story we are, Steven Universe instead sets up this central thesis and starts laying down themes so the viewer knows what to expect.

Not every show is as theme-heavy as Steven Universe, but it’s always good to get your ideas out there like Gem Glow and Laser Light Cannon did.

 

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 350: Together Again

GC13 and David discuss Together Again from Adventure Time: Distant Lands.

Finn and Jake are finally together again! We knew this was coming ever since Finn had his Jake tattoo in Obsidian, and it’s a suitably epic adventure for Finn and Jake to end their tenure on.

Did you wonder about Dead Worlds? We get to see a few. We even know some numbers for them!

Hinobi’s Secret Project: What’s Really Going on in Glitch Techs?

Glitch Techs may prefer to focus on video game fun, but there’s definitely some funny business going on at Hinobi. What could they be up to? You know, besides massively over-engineering their video game consoles and sending out the Glitch Techs to mind wipe anyone who saw anything suspicious.

We’ve heard some names… And the last episode of the second season of Glitch Techs might just figure in. Hopefully we’ll get to find out some day.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 349: Sneeze Guard

GC13 and David discuss Sneeze Guard from Summer Camp Island. Yes, an episode about being sick to follow an episode about germs.

And oh how sick things become. Alice doesn’t pass her illness on to anyone, oh no—she passes it on to the island itself. Magical illnesses don’t mess around on Summer Camp Island.

Thankfully, witches have the ability to make a loyal assistant out of anyone, so Susie and Betsy are there to make things better. Eventually.

The Case of the Missing Army: She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, and the Battle of Bright Moon

For a show about a rebellion against an evil horde, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power doesn’t contain very many battles. Or, scratch that: She-Ra and the Princesses of Power contains many battles, but only one side ever actually fields an army.

How can a rebellion not have an army? Well, they do. One army is mentioned but never seen, but the other army, while slightly more visible, never fights in any battles—even when their entire rebellion is at stake. Why might we never see the forces of good take the field in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, then?

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 348: Germs

GC13 and David discuss Germs from Invader Zim.

Another episode of Zim, another episode that got its own Flash game on Nick.com. Okay, this is also the last one with its own game, but it’s still remarkable.

So come with us into a world where the 3D printers are really good and the spray cans last forever—a world of spaaaaaace meat!

It’s My Party: Summer Camp Island’s Best Defense Against Retcon

When season three of Summer Camp Island came out, the revelation that the camp was new felt like a retcon. However, the season one episode It’s My Party makes a lot more sense if this really is Summer Camp Island’s first group of campers. How else could Susie… You know…

Ribbit!
