CG wikia will be deleted soon, so I'm starting here.
Valentine's Day episodes were nice to watch, especially Clyde's episode. Not only he got a good development, but also his friends were nicely utylized and the moral is quite strong "if your love interest doesn't return your feelings, don't get heartbroken, find another love interest".
Have you read that LH will get live action special episode? It's x-mas special, plot sounds mean-spirited, I don't want Lincoln and Clyde sabotaging the sisters' plans just so their x-mas plan would get realized. I think instead of LA, such x-mas special should be a puppet show like Spongebob episode about Plankton spreading naughty plague for x-mas.
I was surprised that Paula was allowed to play basketball and football despite her chronic injury. I can imagine Lynn using Paula's cripple status to get parking spot for cipples, because it's close to sport shop or some sport stadium. However if Paula gets healed and Lynn wants to injure her to use her to get privilages again, then she would lose her fandom.
What are your thoughts about recent CG eps? Mine are here.
So Carl used Rosa's myth about boogeyman to make a scary tour as his business. It worked on naive people, but not Ronnie, like she was the only sane person here. Because she kept saying its all fake, she kept ruining fun, so Carl tricked her into buying hot dogs, so he could get rid of her. This was clever, but very mean. Also scaming Vito into buying apple juice spray. When he met the boogeyman, I initially thought it's Ronnie, but when she appeared, I started guessing it's Rosa, because of same body shape, hieght and she knows this myth. Carl was suck a sleazy jerk in this episode, that I didn't feel sorry for him getting in troubles. He actually deserved such scare, even if its questionable.
Rosa cooking Sergio and Nelson in toilet were creepy scenes, it's not a good example of dark humor. Ronnie and Bobby had nice time with Arturo, but the cutest was the siblings sleeping in the same bed. I understand Rosa's fears, but like Maria and Hector said, she's paranoid. Making Casagrande appartment cool, so the kids would stay was nice, but making Arturo's home look bad was a big jerk move. I guess bumbel on Bobby's head made him even dumber.
That’s right he did. It worked too well. Ronnie is very wise. But I didn’t like how Carl abandon her like that. That apple juice spray is almost like real perfume. Well, Carl thought it was her and I doubt it, but it wasn’t. I knew El Cucuy was Rosa the whole time because she wanted to get back at him for not doing his laundry. He sure was. But at least he learned his lesson. I thought everyone, other than Ronnie because she already upset with him, was going to get mad at him for ripping them off with the tour, but he gave their money back in fear.
Yup. But very weird and I was wondering how Nelson got in the toilet in the first place. They sure did. Rosa got worried for nothing because she thought Bobby and Ronnie Anne was going to stay with their Dad for now. Yup. It is. That was uncalled for. And not only that, confused as well. Now I know why Abuela wanted him to bring a helmet. At least everything worked out.
Alec's Schwimmer's return isn't so great, because his Bird has Flown is a bad episdoe. It's too gross and it's hard to see Bobby as a bad guy, because Sergio is obnoxious and proud of it. It's surprising his family cries for him, knowing how jerkish he is. Instead of improving his behavior, he uses emotional blackmail on Bobby. For comedy Hector does non-sensical things like giving title employee of month to ones, who don't work for him. Sergio is a freeloader pet and the baloon is not even alive. CJ looking for Sergio in toilet makes sense, because he's a kiddie kid, but Maria as adult looking for Sergio in Lalo's mouth makes no sense. Minor thing, but Rosa hitting Carlino with shoe makes her look too much like an abusive grandmother. Carlino caused damages, but he's a kid and nobody calls Rosa out for using corporal punishments. Rosa will soon be compared to Homer Simpson.
Trend Game was much more interesting. Ronnie's friends from City Slickers finally got some justice and they have screentime. They are bigger variety than Lincoln's friends. I can relate to Ronnie not being familiar with newest trends, because at school I always had problems, because of not knowing what was popular back then. Going to abandoned subway and meeting rats forming an aligator was cool. I don't get why Sid's subplot of shaving an animal and getting punished for this was even involved, if her shaved head gets back to normal quickly. Poor Laird is perhaps an expy of Lincoln as the unluckiest boy. This trend of him getting treated like a carpet repeated 3 times and it wasn't funny. In the end this episode is between average and good, it would be good if jokes were better.
Well, I didn’t mind. Bobby sure did have a rough time and Sergio was showing off. That’s family support for ya, even though he does act up at times. I didn’t think he would that and Bobby looked all over for him. Exactly. Even Vito. Yup. Rosa sure does uses her shoes as weapons a lot and it barely hit Carl. She really needs to control her temper. Maybe.
It sure was. It’s been awhile again. Ronnie interacting with Sid and her City friends reminds me of Familia Sounds on episode 4. I feel the same way. Yeah. That was vicious and they haven’t appeared since the The Spies episode. Cats. Rats. What’s next? And getting a half haircut was unexpected, but at least her hair grew back. Laird sure is having bad situations as well. And him getting trampled like that was painful. I enjoyed it as well. Could be.
I read about Applebee's. They aren't in Poland, there are local businesses like this.
I consider Lisa and Lynn as overachievers. Nobody can relate to Lisa, because nobody is omni-disciplinary scientist especially as a kid, also no kid can be that emotionless. Lynn is an ace in every sport, so almost nobody wants to compete with her and nobody is afraid of her losing. It would be very interesting, if there was a discipline and sport they aren't good at and realize that they can't be aces in everything.
I don't join discussion posts anymore, but I saw discussing Friendzy. People complained about this episode, because there is nobody to root for. People say it's better than Brawl and I see this as equally bad, again siblings fight and parents are useless, because they let the chaos keep growing. Family involve their friends to private family feud. Pokefan said the kids learned their lesson, but they didn't learn anything, because their teachers are hypocrites. Parents told them to not play friend card, but they themselves did this in the end, so whole episode is pointless.
Now for the better topic, I watched new CG eps and I don't think they were anything special. Carlota's episode was like mix of House Music and Careal Offender, Hector's episode was like Making the Grade. Pop singer from Carlota's episode has the most valpulous body in the franchise.
By rewatching all eps, I noticed that lot of episodes happen due to poor communication, misunderstandings and jumping into conclusions. If characters just spoke to each other, many episodes wouldn't exist, because all would be avoided. The saddest is perhaps Selfie Improvement, because Lori and Carol wasted years on rivalry, just because they saw each other as superior rivals to defeat.
I watched Horror-scope again and I noticed how Rosa was pressing Ronnie to find love and Lincoln being her love. This made me imagine that Casagrandes keep pressing and forcing Ronnie and Lincoln to date, so they would marry. This causes them both to get outraged and loudly calling the Casagrandes out for involving themselves in their personal lives. Out of spite Ronnie keeps acting jerk to her family for this and Lincoln declares he won't go to Great Lakes city again, because there he can't feel safe with the Casagrandes dwelling into his life.
Lincoln's gag of breaking 4th wall was replaced by making him a bigger victim of misfortunes. This is a mistake from the writers. He'd be more interesting, if he refered quotes from famous films like Luna refers songs.
I don't like when trailers spoil too much. I couldn't enjoy Predict Ability, because all costumes were shown in promos. This left no room for surprise. Same happened to film Shrek the 3rd, about 90% of plot was revealed in trailers.
So new ep of S4 will be Sister Act about Lola and Lana swapping their roles. I read some fanfics about it, so that's a fandom specific plot. The trope of twin swap and role swapping has been used since ancient times. To be honest I don't wait for this episode, because the premise was done for ages and the twins had focus not long ago in A Mutt Above and Community Disservice.
Only ep, where Luna and Luan interacted were Brawl and Deep Cuts, no episode focused on them as roommates. Room with a Feud and A Pimple Plan were perfect chances for this and they weren't used.
I got terrified and disgusted that many zoo directors are ready to kill of some of their animals, because they lack money to keep them alive and well, because due to the pandemia they have no customers. This is so tragic. They can't free them, because the animals spent whole lives in cages, they don't know how to survive in the wild. This makes me wonder, why in times of crisis people lose their morality.
For 2 years I wanted to know what Simon Sharp looks like, if he's younger or older brother to Sam. Now I think wanting is more exciting than having, because once I saw him whole excitement disappeared. He looks to be in Lucy's age.
To be clear I haven't watched Purrfect Gig, I only saw a screenshot with Simon.
Due to recycled scripts, many eps are so similar to each other. Despite similarities, some are better due to small differences.
Making the case and fool me twice - both eps are about filming relatives in embarassing situations, but I prefer fmt, because unlike mtc it doesn't have boring first half.
Power Play and Green House - PP for obvious reasons.
Toads & tiaras and a mutt above - both are about changing someone for own benefits and realising own selfishness, I prefer t&t, because bonding between bro and sis is more interesting between pet and owner.
Roadie to nowhere and really loud music - both are about Luna's insecurities, I prefer rtn, because there at least aren't so many songs to distract from thin plot.
Tripped! and Washed up - both are about family getting lost during a trip, I prefer wu, because there isn't so much toilet humor, repetitive jokes and deserted island is more interesting than a road. Additionally prologue reminds me my fanfic lost on the open ocean.
Yesman and homeschooled - in both cases siblings take advantage of the most skilled sibling for own benefits, only the used sibling doesn't get what deserved for sake of irony, siblings fix this after realizing their selfishness. I prefer homeschooled, becuase half of the plot isn't filled with Lincoln's pathetic attempts and parents rejecting his beggings.
City slickers and trend game - Ronnie pretends to be a cool kid to impress her friends only to learn she didn't need to. I prefer tg, because at least there is no needless Lori's subplot or Lincoln's massochism.
For Bros about to rock, Head's Poet Anxiety, Gown and Out - older sibling support the younger one and tells their backstory. All 3 are equally good to me.
Mad Scientist and Garage Banned - one sibling gets tired of loud siblings and decides to move out only to regret it. I prefer gb, because solution is more realistic.
Sleuth or consequences, Crimes of Fashion and Recipe for Disaster - all are about Lincoln and Clyde investigating in style of Ace Savvy. I prefer cof, because it's not mean-spirited as soc or boring as rfd.
2 boys and baby, purrfec gig and breaking dad - all are about babysitting that turned out harder than first thought. I prefer bd, because 2nd half has much more heartwarming story and no toilet humor.
Shell shock and game boys - both are about paranoid friend not trusting another. I prefer ss, because Ronnie is more interesting than Clyde.
Tea Tale Hear and Game off - both are about younger sibling ruining posession of the older sibling despite warnings. I prefer go, because Lola behaved like she forgot her character development and was mean to everyone, when Lana asked kindly for help, also video games are more interesting than dolls.
I think Tough Cookies is a typical Clincoln episode, so nothing special. Gag of Lynn Sr getting stuck in kitchen fan was stupid and overstayed its welcome. I don't like Zach for eating Lincoln and Clyde's stonehenge, he's not Patrick Star to be so stupid.
In S1 Rita had A Novel Idea, Lynn sr had House Music. In S2 Lynn Sr had Vantastic Voyage, Lock N Loud, Job Insecurity, Legends, Anti-social, Rita doesn't have solo ep in S2. Rita in S3 had only Rita Her Rights and Write Stuff, when Lynn Sr had A Fridge Too Far, Braking Dad, Ruthless People, Home of Fave, Cooked. In S4 Rita had only Write and Wrong, when Lynn Sr had A Present Tense, Can't Hardly Wait and now he's going to have Feast or a Family.
So you see Rita is underutylized compare to Lynn Sr.
LS simply appears much more often than R, so I started accusing him for stealing screentime from her. So I dislike LS for making Rita underdeveloped.
Lori and Lola got most development, but their detractors accuse them for being overused and stealing chances for development from the other sisters. I think in similar way about Clyde robbing Stella and Liam from chance of shining.
I find Dark story episode as the best of S4, because it's creative and outlandish. Feast or Family is an average episode, the first half is cute thanks to bonding, but the second is boring due to this forced conflict. What's your opinion?
I'm not a fan of recycling scripts, but there is a thing I'd like to happen. In Fandom Pains Leni and Lori joined Lucy in watching her tv show. I imagine Lana and Lynn joining Lincoln in a survivalist activity.
How would it look? Lucy discovers that Harriet wasn't a witch like she believed, but an inquisitor hunting witches and heretics, when her magic stuff are trophies of her victims. Lucy gets devastated and gets faith crisis.
