Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous: 1x01 Pilot

Why have I never heard of this show before, this was great! A perfect blend of unbearable awkwardness and genuinely funny jokes, with superb commentary on what "reality" media would become with the rise of YouTube. Not only that, but every character still acts and reacts like a real person would, with even the over-the-top asshole Zach Stone feeling like an uncomfortable portrayal of everyone's desire to escape their failures and become noticed for once in their life. This is another superb outing from Bo Burnham, and I can't wait to watch more.

One of the few shows that is literally too cool to have a coherent plot.

The Midnight Gospel

We desperately need more stuff like this. Self-contained, bizarre, yet strangely captivating animated stories with huge talent behind them; combined with some nice, grounded, yet rather in-depth dialogue between characters that's mostly separated from the aforementioned visual storytelling. Sprinkle in touches of a subtle, wonderfully executed, and completely realistic character arc tying all the episodes together, and end it all with a dream-like masterpiece about dealing with grief and death. It may be a little divisive and overwhelming, but we really do need stuff like this to take us out of all the thousands of near-identical Netflix crap that blend together into indistinguishable white noise.

We may never get much more like this, but I hope for it.

Mob Psycho 100: 1x09 Claw ~7th Division~

I absolutely love this series, but upon reflection this is definitely the weakest episode of Mob Psycho 100. Unlike pretty much every other episode, the characters' personalities don't shine during any of their decisions and/or interactions (apart from Mob being not incredibly smart and starting to become more confident in his abilities). This episode is really just trying to get the plot moving to the finale, which is still pretty phenomenal, but in turn it leaves much of the series' charm behind. There are still some pretty good positives, namely the superb animation and introduction to the members of Claw, but like my first watch, I'm just waiting for Mob Psycho to get started again next episode. Funny how one of the more plot-heavy episodes in Mob Psycho is actually the only filler episode, if you consider character development as content (which I do).

Avatar: The Last Airbender: 1x13 Chapter Thirteen: The Blue Spirit

This, as well as the last episode, is the point where Avatar usually surpasses expectations for people. Every character has been given a fairly good setup, mainly Aang and Zuko, and yet the previous episode "The Storm" is where this characterization is not only questioned, but also pushed forward into territories not usually expected from a cartoon, in a surprisingly well-thought-out way. With a firmly established setup, and the audience's minds wondering where ATLA will go next, this show sweeps out the rug and pulls off a masterpiece of an episode, where creative action and atmosphere excel far beyond anything we've anticipated, in a high-stakes, prison-escape episode, introducing new methods of combat along the way to further improve Avatar's already masterful worldbuilding. And to top it off, a beautiful ending that sets up many themes and character arcs that will last the rest of the series

In short: this gud.

You know what? Even considering that this is the weaker part of Avatar, these first few episodes are still really good. Even in this one, we can still see the development of a balance between genuine drama and comedy that only grows stronger as the show progresses.

Wow, that was the most I've ever laughed while watching a TV episode. Nichijou really doesn't miss, ever.

BoJack Horseman: 6x15 The View from Halfway Down
Over the Garden Wall

Such a weird, unique, yet wonderful show. The characters were all likeable and memorable, every setting was wildly creative and intriguing, the humour was really great, and the story, whilst rushed in places, really was something excellent overall. There was a great sense of childhood nostalgia through Greg's adorable naivety, perfectly mixed with some really dark themes through Wirt and the overarching narrative. I'm serious - this gets pretty dark, especially in the last few episodes. It was a fun little trip, and an intriguing story, all capped off by a magnificent finale.

Sure, this was very strange and sometimes offputting. Sure, I didn't need to hear the Cartoon Network intro at the start of every episode. But this was a really great, really different experience that many would enjoy, and one that I will likely enjoy more on revisits.

Thanks for the 110 minutes, Over The Garden Wall.
You wonderful mistake of nature.

Hilda: 2x03 Chapter 3: The Witch

Well that was pretty great! Hilda is back with its signature creativity, wholesomeness and extremely likeable characters, and now it has magic, so that's awesome. Kaisa (the librarian) is an even better character, and Frida's a witch now, so that's cool. Overall a superb episode, and good proof that Hilda, thankfully, has not decreased in quality.

Avatar: The Last Airbender: 2x07 Chapter Seven: Zuko Alone

My words and descriptions could not do this episode justice. Just know that this is definitely Avatar's best episode, possibly one of the best episodes in TV, and a brilliant continuation of Zuko as a character full of life and complexity.

9.8/10

My Top Ten Avatar Episodes: #4

Hell yeah, spooky episode!
Bloodbending is a really unsettling idea for Avatar to explore, and I applaud them for not only going down this path but also doing it as well as they usually do. The idea of being controlled by someone moving your blood around is such a chilling thought, and watching someone using this skill makes you flinch each time. The buildup to this revelation is very nice, showing how Hama is willing to drain water out of life for her own benefit. The end of the episode is great, with Katara having to bloodbend in order to stop Hama, and crying when Hama tells her, with glee, "Congratulations. You're a bloodbender."
Very haunting episode, and a welcome departure from Avatar's usual tone.
9.6/10

My Top Ten Avatar Episodes: #10

While The Storm is the episode I consider to be the turning point of this series from good to great, this episode is the point in which this series got GOOD. We get a great, action-packed episode that, in accordance with the previous episode, gives depth to Zuko's character and his relationship with the Avatar.
The escape from the fortress is amazing, with Aang and Zuko using the powers they have, such as sword fighting and wind bursts, to try and overpower the Fire Nation soldiers working as hard as they can to stop them. The escape sequence also works to establish Aang and Zuko as a powerhouse when working together, instead of against each other, hinting towards the events in Season Three.
The only real downside for me in this episode is the side plot with Katara and Sokka's illnesses causing wacky hijinks, which is quite ill-fitting with the rest of this superb episode.
9.1/10

The Dragon Prince: 3x04 The Midnight Desert

I laughed way too hard at the Oasis reference and the Sailor Moon reference.

Also I'm starting to believe that Callum is the reincarnation of Sokka.

The Dragon Prince: 2x09 Breathe

This show is very much seeming to feel a lot like Avatar. These past two seasons feel a lot like two halves of the same season, and I hold it in a very similar regard to Avatar's first season, with an 8 overall. However, the first season is the lower half for me, maybe like a 7.7, and the second season has been an 8.4, exploring many character arcs extremely well.

I was spoiled about almost every part of this show when I started it. I was also not a child when I watched it, and understood what makes a show good or bad.

The fact that I was still floored by how amazing this show is says a lot.
