'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

Well, you know Hollywood; if something's popular, run it into the ground!

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

It's good to be back, after that outage I think I'll try to post more.

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

@  Donocropolis : (09 June 2021 - 05:37 AM)

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

I decided to check this compilation out then followed it up with a Sasha Saga.

I realize that Amphibia is sort of like that anime Fushigi Yuugi (Curious/Mysterious Play), except it's only two of the girls who are isekai -ed into a fantasy world. Sasha is the parallel to the other girl who got assaulted when she arrived.

The popularity of Fushigi Yuugi was the whole romance angle tho. I guess with only three females and no human guys around, this isn't the case with Amphibia.

Made the mistake (not a mistake) of watching the season 2 Halloween ep (with the multiple stories) and the humor and freakiness charmed me to no end.

Currently binging Season 1. I'm already after the Snow Day. More than halfway thru!

It's a wonderful show. The second season returned recently and really starting to ramp up.

Probably Disney's best cartoon currently, including DuckTales (which albeit having a fantastic finale, I don't feel is overall as good).

I'm up to season 2 already but not fully caught up yet. All the organic stuff makes me think of Cobra-La from the GI Joe movie. Things getting eaten willy nilly is so gross and yikes, haha

I rather like Maddie, especially when she was tossing around hex bags vs the other curse person in that ep. I'd like her to return or hang out more with Sprig and Ivy.

Can't wait for Polly to get her legs! She's going to be awesome!

I'm pretty sad about the true evil reveal. He was a cool guy.

Edit - have to add this hilarious joke I noticed while watching. Little Frogtown was a cool noir spotlight on Hop Pop, even though he did kill that guy. But at 0:31, you can see the secret recipe for the Secret Sauce.



It's just Ditch water and Color! Mix well! Hilarious!

Maddie will get some focus as the second half of next week's episode is titled "Marcy and Maddie".

Saw the new eps. I'm not fond of seeing the mayor but I rather like Fixit Felix Toady.

Frobo did an Iron Giant there. But his arms just makes me think of the robot in Laputa Castle in the Sky. Cute addition but I imagine they're building up Marcy's gang.

I also saw the lyrics to the intro theme that the creator actually hated. Like the lyrics rhymed ribbit ribbit and hop on it, haha

Saw Toad to Redemption and Maddie and Marcy.

Not into Toadstool but I like Toady (though, really, the Halloween ep shows that he's the same age as the other kids? But then human Polly was sorta like maybe one year younger than human Sprig? I dunno.). Hope they don't regret the ending.

Maddie and Marcy is totally a backdoor pilot! Rosemary, Lavander and Ginger are so precious! Why aren't they playing with Polly? Need more Maddie and Marcy!

Also the Harry Potter expy made me pause just to laugh.

Rosemary, Lavender, and Ginger have been on the opening credits since the first episode. I had figured by now those characters were only made for the opening. Glad to see they either had plans for them from the start or decided to do something with those three tadpoles that were there.

... at the right! I did NOT see them there! Haha!

I actually feel that the frogs going Yay around the screen should have been familiar characters instead of generics.

Oh, to continue the idea that Marcy is building her own support crew, she has Frobo and Maddie. She needs one more person to match the trio of Anne, hehe. (Yeeeeah, it's probably not real but it's fun to speculate).

Saw the second temple and the Warhammer.

The design of the lunch lady is pretty cool, though I don't want to see where the other hand comes from. I liked the first temple better. I'm worried about the ending.

Looks like things are about to get sociopolitical, whew! Is kawaii still a thing? Love how the parallelism went.

I feel let down that the second temple was only a 10min ep. I mean, it's cool that they crammed it into 10min but, I dunno, the lesser run time feels like it's less big of an event.

Their eyes glowing doesn't exactly give them a boost or anything, right? It's just to signify that they're using their supposed chosen emotion thing. But is it emotions that they lack?

I guess Anne is empathy and sacrifice.

But Marcy also has sacrifice? Or feeling of self worth?

What's Sasha? Strength of her convictions? She doesn't lack that.

And if the eye glow doesn't power them up, I guuuuess they're suppose to power up their respective gems, if they're in close proximity?

The book showed brains, heart, and strength (?) I believe.

 

Their eyes have glowed at moments of great strength or courage with each time them doing an amazing feat.  It would not surprise me if they are being powered up at those points.  Anne fighting Veggie Robo, Anne saving Sprig (in the first episode I believe), Marcy saving Sprig from the Ant Queen, and Sasha pulling the hammer.  Anne fighting Veggie Robo seemed to be one of the most impressive feats.

Oh! I didn't take a close look at the book. I should look for a screen shot.

Sasha's eyes also glowed when she was circling Anne right before they fought. There's really a lot of blink and you'll miss it with this.

Frobo!
