    Together We Will Triumph

    Together We Will Triumph

    With this week’s episode we say farewell to the City of Stone miniseries. I think it’s safe to say it’s been a ride… We learn the fate of Big Mac and Demona, and somewhere late in the episode’s 22min runtime, our protagonist shows up, so that’s nice…

Great Podcast Idea!

Liz and Dan are great hosts! Funny, and with honest, genuine reactions. The podcast goes episode by episode (and usually scene by scene) reacting to a cartoon they only have vague memories of. I'm a hardcore Gargoyles fan and think the show is incredible and went above and beyond pretty much anything of its era. I'm looking forward to seeing how they react to character progression and some surprises/revelations down the line. I only hope they don't spoil themselves by looking up certain characters!

It’s like the show was made for me

Even before finding this podcast, I’ve been rewatching this show as a 31-year old after watching it as a young kid in the 90s. Yay nostalgia! It’s awesome to hear someone else going through the same experience and asking all the NUMEROUS questions I now have as an adult. These two are fun to listen to and keep me engaged, even inspiring me to rewatch certain episodes to catch an occasional nugget I might have missed. Also, thanks for fixing the audio issue with the show clips! Good show

Dude looks like a dude ,

Over analyzing can be fun!

Pulling apart a thing you enjoy, and coming out the other side still enjoying that thing can be hard, but it seems like these two are managing okay! Who knows, maybe it’s the wine, but I think the hosts pull of fun and joy while criticizing something they love
