I just don't care about Gravity Falls as much anymore. I hate the fanbase, the lack of new episodes for months has killed my interest, and in retrospect a lot of eps are wasted on Dipper's stupid lust for Wendy. When the show airs the rest of season 1 they better drop that crap.

This new episode was hilarious. It was nothing but smiles and I had a grin all throughout.

On a side note the gremlin Dipper caught. Anyone else feel his design and art style didn't match the tone and coloring of the show? Also another question, anyone else think this was truly the most ferocious and scariest supernatural creature in the whole series thus far? I thought he was worse than the Summerween Trickster.

Was kind of hoping that Stan kept his won money.

Actually yes it is. Disney is not afraid to show blood in their G rated movies. G rated is the equivalent of E for everyone. Though nowadays "political correctness" has upped the rating of Disney's classics into PG territory which for videogames is the E10 rating. Its still for everyone.

The problem really stems from Nintendo being a bunch of faggot pussies who have no balls gladly tow the line for the sake of "family friendly" shit like they were the videogame version of Disney (by that I don't literally mean that they're like Disney, but that they try to be so focused on being a family company and inoffensive that it is detrimental to the quality of the product, kind of reminds me of 4Kids actually). Too many of these business suit guys, are just pansies who are scared that they'll not sell out as big as they hope. They're disgusting.

>> No. 206820
Okaaaaaay why the fuck is this show ON Disney? Was I the only one who didn't laugh at Dipper's leg being without punchline getting bitten and chewed by a wild wolf? No joke, no magic werewolf, or taking coyote from the Simpsons who bit Homer. It was just grim and violent wild animal attacking its prey and they play it like its something and light and funny? Come the fuck on. This show belongs on Cartoon Network or the HUB and be PG rated.

And quite frankly I don't find the idea of a wild animal chewing up a little kid to be humorous (and then Dipper makes a reference that an owl tried to rip his tongue to boot after the wolf did him in).

On a lighter note....again WHY is this show on Disney? I mean flat out Bird and the Bees jokes? The only thing Disney provides is GOOD animation, the rest? All it would take is a Soccer Bitch to get this gem of a show canceled. I mean before both Mabel and Dipper got depressed over the truth about life sucking but that was a What If story so it didn't REALLY happen. However in this episode Mabel's childhood literally got raped by Stan in a double-whammy of good writing being a responsible and caring guardian.

"Goodbye childhood...."

Making it canon that now Mabel knows what sex and reproduction is....this is on Disney? Geez.

Also I've always felt it was weird how Dipper NEVER made any friends at GF. And was wondering about that. Now this episode made me feel sorry for him even further. The kid can't catch a break. He gave up his new room under dubious writing and now has come to the realization that he's lonely without any friends.

This show makes Dipper suffer a lot doesn't it?
>> No. 206821
that could be a possibility given those are the glasses Yong Stan was wearing back when they did the time travel and they seem to mean something to him the way he looked at them.
>> No. 206832
A birds and the bees speech is not mature content lmao. Especially when nothing is explained onscreen. That overreactive soccer mom will need a horde of other soccer moms and incredible persuasive skills in order to convince a network that they should take a show off the air because her preteen children are too young & innocent to watch an episode where preteen characters act their age and deal with preteen problems.

It's also not the first Disney show to bring it up. I am pretty sure the Proud Family did at least once.

I did think it was pretty out-there for Dipper to barely mind a wolf chomping on his leg, but it was a lesser-of-two-evils joke with no lasting import so I don't care. Don't say Stan "literally raped" Mabel's childhood, though. That is a double misuse of language. Triple, if you get finicky with the definition of a childhood.

Dipper does get beat up on a lot, physically and emotionally, but he usually snares some kind of victory when all's said and done. He hasn't made any really good pals yet, but he's still got his best friend back in the end. Plus apparently Stan's just waiting for the day that Dipper tells him off to shower avuncular pride on the kid.

New ep' reaction: Nikki Yang is awesome, and this is probably the episode with the most quoatable lines in it.
>> No. 207839
This is officially the worst Gravity Falls episode ever.

The supernatural was a minor note detail and mostly dealt with nonsensical boring plot elements like the boy band thing and Dipper again lusting after Wendy. Not even STAN could save the episode since he wasn't his brilliant morbid cynical witty self. He was just being unusually positive and helpful ally to Dipper out of the goodness of his heart when last episode it was revealed that his idea of helping Dipper is to be rough on him. Its not like I don't appreciate Stan being good since him being mean to Dipper is not funny when overdone, but this was out there like someone who doesn't get Stan's nature wrote him. Plus the whole Wendy being angry at Dipper for revealing the truth about Robbie being a liar just makes me wonder ask......why don't they drop Wendy? She sucks and adds nothing to this show except unwanted romance garbage.

And they really did nothing with the whole Boy Bands are cloned in test tubes thing. So the whole sub-plot about Mabel growing attached to a random lame made up boy band that spoke in a stupid way was a boring trainwreck. It also ignores that Mabel already has a boyfriend (Mermando) who she writers to so I don't get where they suddenly have Mabel declare that every boy she loves gets out of her life.

Terrible episode. It was just awful. Nothing good. This is the Great Divide (Avatar Last Airbender) episode for Gravity Falls. Not a single redeemable aspect in this one.

I have to say, this show officially has been derailed with filler and its overarching storyline with finding out about the supernatural elements of the town with the different volume books has long since been dropped (even Gideon is no longer Dipper's rival and has been reduced to Stan's antagonist for childish jokes). Even if the show brings back the main story in the finale of Season 1, would it really excuse all this worthless filler and waste of time on outright bad ideas? I don't think so.

Gravity Falls is a case in point of wasted potential.
>> No. 207840
I liked it! Sev'ral Timez made me laugh a bunch; Dipper's subplot was rather bland and uneventful by comparison, but I'm glad he and Stan are able to hold a chat (even if Stan's incapable of much besides commiseration). Dipper really hasn't had much of a friend of his own yet, so this is nice.

I also appreciated how Mabel going nutsy koo-koo has a little justifying precedent, even though it wasn't strictly necessary because she's just kind of manic all the time. She hasn't had a lot of luck forming the kind of stable connections she's been after either. Poor thing.

I enjoyed this episode and it made me happy to watch! Amazingly, I could have used more of the group literally composed of five identical characters.

>MG: Are you able to tell us how these items from your trip will be incorporated into the show?
>AH: I’ll say that it is highly likely that a very large inanimate lumberjack could come to life in the series. After visiting that attraction, it has sort of been haunting my dreams and the things in my nightmares usually make their way into the series. So that is entirely possible. One thing that surprised me greatly was that when we visited Confusion Hill was how many things that we didn’t know have already been put into the show. There were a lot of strange parallels. Grunkle Stan is sort of this old guy that is into Grandpa humor, like the kind of plaques and T-shirts you find at a bait and tackle store. There was this episode, [speaking in Grunkle Stan's voice] “I’ve got the complaint department here” and he holds up a trash can. Sure enough at Confusion Hill, there was something that said “Press this button” and it was a mouse trap. There was also an episode where he says [speaking in Grunkle Stan's voice] “Look behind this curtain to see the most terrifying monsters” and it was a mirror. They had they exact attraction at Confusion Hill. I was shocked at how well we managed to psychically pick up on this corny tourist trap humor that really exists. Just being up in those trees and seeing nature, I feel that it really reinvigorated our artists. We got a chance to see how beautiful the Pacific Northwest really is. We will probably explore the woods more as well in future episodes, since we were really inspired by them.

Disney these days at least seems to be able to have a sense of humour about itself, which is ironic considering how Waly himself was VERY particular about protecting his brandname.

Just got into the show and it's a ton of fun. I wish they could get more conspiracy stuff into the newer episodes, though. The whole puberty/relationship thing is nicely realistic but I love the show for its fantastical elements more.

>people actually complaining about Dipper fixating on Wendy

Are you kidding? Boys that age will do anything, including ignoring obvious Illuminati imagery, in pursuit of Dat Ass.


Well that's. . . nice.


Wow, those are some really depressing implications. So do you guys think that discovering all the secrets of Gravity Falls made McGuckin lose his mind entirely? Also, when do you think Bill is coming into the show?

I for one would like to see more scary stuff in the show, it's not creepy enough lately.

>Are you kidding? Boys that age will do anything, including ignoring obvious Illuminati imagery, in pursuit of Dat Ass.

Exactly why real kids SUCK. We do not need to be reminded of how stupid and annoying real teens or kids can be and how worthless they would be as protagonists since their hormones are driving them to fuck. There's a reason Adventure Time is called Shipping Time nowadays. Too much fucking romance crap. Dipper's obsession with the town bicycle makes him annoying.

Other shows also bother me like Hey Arnold where the characters are even younger than Dipper and yet they behave like teens who have unusually active romantic lives (makes you wonder why were they all like 9 years old to begin with when their behavior is nothing of the such).

The only way I would accept Dipper's obsession with Wendy is if Wendy scars Dipper. I'm thinking a scenario like Bobby Hill in King of the Hill when he was with that 14 year old girl while he was 12. The girl was mildly interested in him and was a vegan. Bobby showed how inadequate he was for being with an older girl and she breaks his heart leading to Bobby eating that raw steak out of spite just to hurt her vegan tendencies. After that Bobby moved on.

This is what Dipper needs, he needs to have his heart broken. For his own good and for the quality of the show. Its either that or we can drop all pretense and have another Shipping Time show. Or better yet we could have another Legend of Korra show where a character's worth is determined by who they want to fuck or who they fucked in the past regardless of old age (like Tenzin's generation).

I just marathoned the entire series up to date the other day. Really enjoyoed it, But you know, from the way people were complaining, I was expecting Wendy to actually be a major factor in the show that was making Dipper unbearable, and it turns out that she's had like six lines over the course of the show. You guys seriously need to stop projecting your issues with women onto this show. Mabel's crushes have played more of a role in the show than Dipper's crush on Wendy.

No, look at the facts here--Mabel's relationships have actually impacted the meta-arc. The kids may never have found out about the supernatural world of Gravity Falls if it hadn't been for her going out with that pack of gnomes. She may not have ended up liking Gideon romantically, but his obsession with her has created the first recurring antagonist in the series. Mermando will probably show up again at some point, and at the very least was much more of a focus in his episode than Wendy--who only served as the catalyst for Dipper getting into HIS B-story, which was actually about him avoiding the wrath of that crazy/awesome chief lifeguard--despite being the cause of Dipper's plot for that episode, she barely even showed up in it. Even the time-travel episode that seemed all about Dipper trying to have a perfect moment with her just used Dipper's crush on Wendy ended up existing primarily for the purpose of setting up the ending where we saw that Mabel's happiness was more important to him in the end.

About the only episode that really centered around Dipper/Wendy was the cloning episode. Which ended up having a good and healthy moral message to it.

The most recent one, where Dipper ended up breaking up Wendy and Robbie (which was ALSO a B-plot, to Mabel's A-plot about the boy band), went to the trouble of pointing out how Dipper was thinking more of himself than Wendy throughout the ordeal, despite ostensibly being the "good guy" in that. Which is why Wendy was mad at him in the end. Dipper was only helping her because he thought it would make it easier for him to get with her, not because he was being a good friend.

If anything, the Dipper/Wendy relationship is one of the more honest and healthy looks at the classic "Boy has an unrequited crush" genre of romance in kid's shows.

The person reporting it probably saw just another long post about relationships in the show and automatically assumed it was the troll rambling again. Can't say I entirely blame them for the reflexive reaction.

The specific post Junk is referring to doesn't seem to be the troll, and they actually made a good post.

Soos ONLY acted like an obnoxious flanderized retard (similar to buck tooth Patrick Star from Spongebob) in this episode for the sake of the plot of this episode in regards to being a callous retard that annoys Dipper.

Let's hope that this shit doesn't go viral and infect his actual personality. It would pain me too much if he stops being a lovable goof who is also a very much reliable friend with his own set of skills. The idea of Soos being able to man a boat and then they make him too retarded to know how to basic thing scares me.

Same goes with Stan potentially getting turned into human Mr. Krabs.

That said real fucking GREAT episode. They actually showed Stan's reference to being in Colombia in prison. Dat continuity. Some nice development for Dipper and his abuse throughout the series at Stan's hands. Gideon finally stepped up as the main central nemesis of the series and that ENDING.

Anyone else think they're trying way too hard to force Wendy into the conflict against Gideon? Soos has a vested interest in maintaining the Mystery Shack since he's a loyal and happy employee of the property. Wendy gives no fucks about the place where she works so all of a sudden trying to include her into the "We all hate Gideon" club feels forced.
>> No. 212247
She didn't even appear for most of the episode, I really don't think they're pushing her into the plot that hard.
>> No. 212248
When listing reasons for why they all hate Gideon, Wendy says she hated him for stealing her moistener or something. But Wendy has never interacted with Gideon. Soos clashed with him during the shrinking episode, Stan has the business rival angle, he's also Dipper's rival in the book volumes of the town, and had a creepy crush on Mabel.

Wendy dropping in her two irrelevant cents and then disappearing for the rest of the episode while Soos yet again ventured with Dipper and Mabel to save Stan's mind from being jacked makes Wendy come off as forced. I got the same feeling with Wendy during the Halloween episode where out of nowhere at the end she shows up with the rest of the cast laughing maniacally as if she went through anything that the episode focused on (Stan trying to prove being scary to kids, Soos Dipper and Mabel surviving the candy monster).

Basically I can't help but feel that Wendy "Does not belong."
>> No. 212249
having her push the moisturizer slight - now, that'd be uncomfortable. this was barely a mention.
why did they include that mention? i dunno, probably something more to do with comedic timing than anything else. but there's not a whole hell of a lot of resources being devoted to her particular grievance. nobody cares and it is never brought up again.
you see, forcing requires some application of . . . force
>> No. 212251
>But Wendy has never interacted with Gideon.
Far as we've seen.
She may just hate him because he annoys her and makes unnecessary trouble for her at work.

She may do her own thing most of the time, but she's willing to be a part of the group when it's not boring. A picky social butterfly that one.

Stuff happening behind the scenes isn't exactly a new idea in the show, what with Mabel mentioning that she'd been on an adventure with vampires that Dipper didn't know about.

And Gideon just stealing her moisturiser is minor enough a problem to warrant her annoyance, but not so major that it raises questions as to how Gideon was able to pull it off.

Like if they suddenly dropped in that Gideon was the one that Robbie got his hypnotising CD from, and that Gideon gave it to him because he knew Dipper had a crush on Wendy, so him giving Robbie the means to mentally enslave her would distact Dipper from Gideon's other villainous schemes.

As such, Gideon stealing something so minor just makes for a good joke compared to the others, while confirming that Wendy didn't just drop out of the series after the Robbie Incident.

Indeed it was unnerving since teeth are a sensitive part of the mouth. The only thing that could have made that sequence even more hair raising was if the deer bled a little after having its teeth pulled out with Bill's psychic powers.

And yes as we all know Disney is a SHIT when it comes to scheduling. But overall I'd say Nickelodeon is worse since they take YEARS to finish airing seasons.

I thought the finale seemed a little dry. I'm fine with the status quo being restored, but there were just a lot of empty notes and pauses thrown in that made the episode seem stretched.
