Gravity Falls Season Two Thread

Well, that was awesome! ...And Surprisingly violent!

Kudos to them in the first two episodes actively tying off some dangling threads from the previous season (not necessarily plot things, but stuff dealing with chacter interactions).

Kind of okay with them just focusing on just having fun or adventuring, rather than getting all anxious over who is paired with who. Like what they've done over in Korra after all the tiresome relationship drama from the first two seasons has ended.

Though they did have that twist there that Dipper being there means a lot to her that he's something closer than she has with the others.I mean I expected her to shrug it off a bit but not to real talk with some deep feelings that go into another type of love Disney has been playing with those a lot lately in their media.

Yeah, but with Korra I think it was just a mess, Gravity Falls on the other hand I think has been trying to show little boys what a healthy relationship with women means.

The Wendy that winks all sexy at you isn't real, the one that you can trust is.

It's one thing to destroy an unhealthy relationship out of a desire to protect someone you love, it's another to destroy it so you can have the unhealthy relationship.

I think Avatar was just trying to emulate Buffy/Whedon style friends where everyone is with everyone before they realized it was awful and gave up and I think Adventure Time has been TRYING to go the road of showing how you treat girls but the results have been nothing more than TERRIBLE whereas Gravity Falls has been one of the few shows to stick the landing so to speak

Just like life, takes a few tries to get it right.

But yea I know where all this is coming from. She feels strongly for Dipper as someone she can depend on and be herself around. Will that change when they are older, who knows since its part of growing up. I like that seems to be a good message there. Similar to Fosters, makes sense given what Frankie and Wendy represent, though second is mostly just rumor, I think.

Considering the theme of the season seems to be "nothing is the same anymore", what with the Stan reveal and the Wendy thing getting gently put a stop to, who else thinks that the next ep will have Mabel and Pacifica actually ending up on somewhat good terms?

What with Alec Hirsch saying that she was going to get more development in this season (and her dad's being played by Nathan Fillon for some reason).

Oh, and Jon Stewart gave the show a shout out on the Daily Show a couple of days ago, which was pretty neat. Hm, I wonder if he was turned onto the show by John Oliver, who similarly had a shout-out when the voice actress who plays Wendy was a guest last summer...

The stuff they're getting away with is facinating. Having a kids pizzaria named "Hoo-Ha's" (euphemism for a woman's breasts, and parody on Hooter's restaurants), and the levels of intermittent violence shown throughout this season surprised me considering it's coming from Disney. I'm half expecting a menstruation joke to pop up somewhere in a similar vein to the throwaway line about Dipper's 'creepy' internet history...

If we're doing that then Wendy's a werewolf. No, no hear me out. They build up the 'Rob Zombie' angle with Robbie, only to flip the script (as Soos would say) and do a Wendy werewolf reveal. It'd be the perfect opportunity to put the menstruation joke in... I can see it now: an Dipper tells an uncharacteristically subdued Mabel that it's finally that time of the month, prompting Mabel to muse that the bond between twins is downright uncanny. Dipper looks puzzled and explains he's been reading up on werewolves and tonight's a full moon. Then again, juxtaposing one girl's monthly cycle with another's bout with lycanthropy might be a whole new level of tastelessness.

Okay, yeah. That storyline might be the worst idea ever.

Ah, but they're doing it in a way that shows kids not to be jerks when it comes to relationships when they're older. Like, just because you like a person, doesn't mean that if you pursue them constantly that they'll change their minds, when really all you're doing is making them uncomfortable.

Sound advice, like the season one episode where Dipper breaks up Wendy and Robbie's relationship... which he was doing less because he's potentially mindcontrolling her, and more because he wants her to himself without taking her feelings into consideration.

Guess Anime must be slim pickings in those areas.

Disney is the only one that I think has a Network presence in other countries with Cartoon Network, Nick and Hasbro programs being internationally syndicated (part of why Hub wasn't that much a loss for them) So I guess in the long run Disney could fall behind if things due pick up with the other networks in that department.

The "I'm just your problem" song didn't kick it off, but that was where it started accelerating. Though according to Olivia Olsen (Marceline's voice actress) Pen Ward did intend for Marcie and PB to be former gfs, but legally couldn't outright say it due to the rules currently in place regarding kid's tv shows.

Looking at the actual list of stuff Australia editted out of the series (mostly stuff like Marcie spitting on PB in What Was Missing, stuff deemed to be sexual or too violent), it seems that the episode in question wasn't editted for any perceived subtext between the two, though the tie-in video that was posted online actually got a guy fired from Federator for "inappropriately" implying they used to date.

...Even though the show's creator said that they did.

Australia seems to be the Anti-Canada in a lot of respects. Up there they've already had at least one kid's show with confirmed canon gay characters in (6teen it was, where a character was confirmed to be a lesbian on-screen, in addition to having a dating one of the reoccuring characters in the episode Role Reversal).
