Snubbing MOTU’s God-Lyn Is A Sin!

With Spider-Man: No Way Home & Hawkeye recaps out of the way, I can delve back into blogs that’ve been on the backburner. This post contains big SPOILERS for the second half of Masters Of The Universe Revelation season one. (This also presumes you’ve seen the first half.) Even the title may be too revealing. I don’t know statute of limitations or what your viewing schedule is, so I’m saving images until after the break. I thought it was a very worthwhile surprise, so I’m trying to be conscientious. Of course, you’ll be seeing these images anyway if you follow me on social media. (This is a call to action for you to do so.) If you weren’t planning on streaming MOTUR, however, maybe seeing what I’m talking about will change you mind? Let me know in the comments. So without further ado, here’s another diatribe about cartoons & action figures!

The Flash Brings Armageddon To Rivervale!

I finally got my obligatory annual cat post out of the way. (Now they tell me the cat blogging tips?) That oughta keep the Meow Mafia off my lap for a little while. Now here’s SPOILERS for how the last four installments of “The Flash: Armageddon” & “Rivervale” transpired plus a bit of bonus Beebo & ZEP!

Thanksgiving For Masters Of The Universe Revelation

The season premieres of Riverdale & The Flash were actually good! I’m pretty sure they will once again be incomprehensible messes by the time they get to their season finales, but I’m hoping they’ll at least stick the landings on their five part events. If there are no tribute videos of Rivervale’s Cheryl Blossom set to the music of the original The Wicker Man by week’s end, then what even is the point of YouTube?

Now it’s toon time again! Lots of fans despised the first half of Masters Of The Universe Revelation. I enjoyed it, but I don’t consider myself a die-hard MOTU fan. (Hence it doesn’t get its own tag.) Netflix should’ve released the whole series at once so at least viewers would’ve had the full story to judge. Cleaving it was to no one’s benefit. After fans complained the trailer for part one mislead them into thinking there’d be plenty of He-Man, Netflix overcompensated by spoiling everything in the trailer for part two. (They didn’t release promo stills though.) So if you’ve seen that, do you even need the SPOILER warning for my review? Yes, since this is an Evil-Lyn stan account!

“What If … Disney Made An MCU Cartoon?”

Unlike Uatu, I have vowed to interfere with your viewing enjoyment of assorted Marvel adaptations! Disney’s first official MCU cartoon, “What If…?”, is simultaneously canon & irrelevant to the MCU because of they’ve officially admitted there’s a multiverse. Every Marvel adaptation is now retroactively part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, completionists!

The series premiere is the most boring, yet I spent the most words discussing it. It acclimates viewers to the concept as subsequent episodes become more experimental. It doesn’t do anything as provocative as Steve Rogers professing blind patriotism is bad. These brisk episodes expect you to conversant with the MCU, which shouldn’t be an issue if you’re streaming on Disney+. “What if … Phil Coulson lived?” is available to stream now too. Some of the minutia has been fudged in these altverses, but it’s not like the movieverse continuity is airtight. At times like those it makes me wish the series wasn’t beholden to the MCU at all. What if … you read below for SPOLIERS for the speculative fiction that Uatu & I watched? What if … this phrase wasn’t at all overused in this post?

Peggy is short for Margaret because is rhymes with Meggy?

Turtle Talk

Last week was legendary for the blog as I reviewed Shang-Chi & The Legend Of The Ten Rings & Legends Of Tomorrow season six back to back. I’d also written about Marvel Legends X-Men within seven days prior. Now to resume less tightly spaced blogging. This time I’ll talk about those terrible toyetic terrapins, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! So technically this ramble could’ve also been titled “Mutant Musings.” Pick up the metaphorical cheese phone of destiny by reading onward!

Mutant Musings

Sometimes I write blogs for spite! I’m not sure if my faith in humanity should be restored by the minimal views. Now we’re back to one of my rambling blogs that aren’t tied in to recent media events. The topic is X-Men (Remind me to do an annual cat post.), handily divided into toys, film/TV, & comic books.

X-Women

This is how the youths comport themselves in music halls nowadays.

Does Superman & Lois Hammer The Beeboverse Into Shape?

As I promised, I survived seeingĀ  The Suicide Squad a second time on HBO Max. (Where can I see a clean version of the new poster with Task Force X taking a group nap?) It’s still a grisly good time!

Now it’s time for the first season finale review of Superman & Lois, which aired on Lois lane’s birthday. How dare they preempt it again for baseball! The damn Yankees are history’s greatest criminals for preventing me from publishing this post promptly! This has SPOILERS for the episodes I’ve not blogged about since the second. (Eventually I’ll blog about the rest of Supergirl season six too.)

What’s The Sensation Of Masters Of The Universe Revelation?

I wasn’t sure if I was going to watch Masters Of The Universe Revelation since I’m only a filthy casual fan. (If I sound too knowledgeable about the franchise, it’s because I picked up a lot from cultural osmosis in addition to having the ability to research.) I had some free time after finishing the superlative second season of Never Have I Ever (Netflix better not axe it like it did my other favorite shows!), so I gave it a shot. Unlike big stretches of The Flash’s seventh season, I do not regret it. It’s getting an overabundance of negative buzz, so I’m belatedly SPOILING why it’s actually good so far. (Netflix annoyingly cleft it in twain like seasons two & three of She-Ra.)

TV Stuff & Preemptive Powerpuff

Greetings! Long time, no blog. I have some exciting news! It’s mostly just exciting to me right now, so I’ve attached it after some more broadly appealing TV tidbits. I’m even gonna rant about Powerpuff instead of waiting for it to air!

DuckTales Is Done. BOO-HOO!

DuckTales is done. BOO-HOO! Paget Brewster has decided, however, it’s getting a fourth season. As the Drunk History GOAT, I believe her. It was hard to write this review because just about everything this reboot does pleases me. There’s not much to criticize. My reviews of the first two seasons already highlighted the elements that work. So there’s not much new to write by the time it got to season three. It’s such a great series, however, that it still deserved a write-up for the final season. I finally got around to rewarding voter demands!

This review is late because I had to wait until the seventh & final installment of This Duckburg Life to be released. (Video pivoted to podcast.) This isn’t too late if you waited until it reached Disney+ to watch it. At least we still have two more seasons of The Owl House to look forward to. Now I have absorbed all the 2017 DuckTales … except the comic books & EPCOT game. So SPOILERS for everything but them inbound! As in my Doom Patrol season two recap, most of them are just sort of random observations!
