Worst: April Fools Rules
I've harped on and on about this episode, and it deserves every ounce of criticism I've given it, and then some! Honestly, shame on everyone who thought this was a good idea. The wiki page for this episode literally says, "This episode reveals that on April Fools' Day, Luan turns into a cruel, ruthless, sadistic, and unforgiving monster." You know, for kids! I'm not saying you can't do slapstick humor at the expense of the character. You can. There is a right way to do it, but that's not what this episode does. Instead, it portrays Luan as, well, what I just mentioned, and passes it all off a just for laughs. There have been many bad episodes of The Loud House, but I can at least give them credit for trying to have a decent takeaway. This? What's the takeaway here? That it's OK to laugh at sadists, people who clearly have problems and need help? That it's somehow endearing to watch Lincoln and the rest of the family, to a lesser extent, go through these life-threatening traps for no reason? This episode isn't a lighthearted slapstick, goofy cartoon. It's just a pile of hatred and disrespect. There is a right way to make a cartoon like what they were going for, but when it's so out of place with the rest of the show, they really have to do it right, and that is more than the exact opposite of what they did here. I don't say this lightly -- to get this rating, an episode has to be actively insulting its viewers' intelligence, not only sending the wrong message, but taking pride in such a twisted message, and so out of place in all the wrong ways -- but this is the only episode I can say, with 100%, is worthy of a 0/5.
Best: Brave the Last Dance
Yep, one of the most recent episodes, and it's already my favorite of the entire show! Where do I even start with this one? First of all, if you have told me two years ago that there would be two episodes premiering -- one Lynn episode, and one Clyde episode -- and that the latter would be better, I would not have believed you for a second. But not only was it better, it was easily the best of the season, and now, I think, the best of the entire series! Ever since I first got into The Loud House in September/October 2017, Tricked! had been at the top of my best list. But as soon as I saw this episode, I was absolutely floored! This is one of those rare episodes, where nearly every moment of it is flawless in one way or another, that you just can't stop watching it because of how fantastically executed it is! I admit, likely part of the reason for my endless fawning over this episode is because of my own personal experiences in similar situations (but haven't most of us who have gone through school had them?), but whatever it is, I love it! Watching Clyde get rejected by Emma, as well as his depression after the incident, was honestly skin-crawlingly surreal given, again, experiences that I had been through. And the ending with Clyde and Chloe hanging out at the dance was about as satisfying an ending as you could have imagined. And even in between all of that, there are still plenty of memorable moments throughout the episode. Just seeing Clyde's friends try to help him work up the courage to ask Emma out, again, hits me on a personal level. I'm not trying to make this all about myself, because, again, I'm aware a lot of people my age have gone through something similar, but this is genuinely why I think this episode is so spectacular! It never directs my attention elsewhere, it is relatable on an almost tragically accurate level, and there are so many memorable moments to take away from it! 10/10
It was good, don't @ me. It was funny and the kids were properly punished at the end.
They've gotten much better as the series has gone along, and they seem willing to be strict when needed, and nice when needed.
Well, after being disappointed with Kings of the Con, I can honestly say I am. I'm looking forward to see what they have to do next.
To answer this question, I think you'd have to ask yourself: how would the women he mistreated feel about it? Would they be OK with him coming back? Because if they wouldn't be, I think that'd be insensitive to them if Nickelodeon were to rehire him.
You know, I didn't realize what that last graphic said at first. I take back what I initially said, this is actually fairly funny,
This should be awesome!
I'm sorry, but I'm not a fan.
Lynn all the way!
If Lynn is still in, I vote for her.
Haven't seen it, either
Does that mean we get to cast another vote? If so, I vote for Lynn.
I don't know. My biggest wish for the longest time was to see a Lincoln-Lynn episode, which came true with Middle Men. But that leads into the question I want to ask you: why do you hate Middle Men (or claim that most do, when there's not really any evidence of that)?
Tricked! hands down. My all-time favorite Loud House episode. It's funny, it doesn't slow down for a second, it felt pretty risky, and had a really catchy song to go along with it.
I think this theory holds some value. And I do have Asperger's, so take that for what you will
I'm most excited for Middle Men! I have been waiting for a Lincoln-Lynn episode for so long!
I loved this episode. And honestly, it was pretty relatable to me. Sometimes, I can be pretty harsh on some people (not physically, but verbally), or I can have them talk with me about something they're not interested in. If this doesn't make any sense, I'm sorry, but to simplify, I can have trouble knowing when someone's the right person to do something with. That's what Lynn went through here, and that's one of the reasons I liked this episode so much. And I also like how Lynn got her sisters their babysitting jobs back, and the fact that we got to see her interact with them. The biggest downside to this episode was definitely Lynn treating Lincoln like she did, what with throwing a football at him and pushing him. I'm not one to think that she roughhouses with him with malicious intent in her mind, but it did seem a little excessively cruel here. At least she got called out for it, though, and he was kind of poking into others' business at one point. Plus, we still have Middle Men to look forward to, and I can safely say I am extremely excited for that episode! I don't exactly believe we'll have to wait until the new year to watch it; I think we'll get it around November/December, but I guess we'll see.
