Two Kids spending summer vacation with their weird uncle in a town where bizarre things happen with a big mystery. Also about trust, growing up with maturity rather than grow apart from family, always sticking by your friends through the roughest times.
Wander Over Yonder:
An Optimistic alien who wants to help people across the galaxy. Also wants to make sure no one is ever helpless like he was and help villains rather than hurt or beat them just because they're bad.
Star vs. The Forces of Evil:
A magical princess from another dimension fights evil with her best friend while having magical and fun adventures. Also shows the fear of the future, fear of growing up, and realistic crushes/relationships/love triangles and how to face them sensibly while growing as a person.
A young boy being partially raised by aliens and has space related adventures while learning about his mother. Also about love and acceptance for everyone and character development that's relatable and real.
A reboot of an 80's show that didn't have much to offer centering around five people who are chosen to defend the universe. Also about teamwork always works, everybody has each others backs, and helping anyone in need no matter how small they seem. Becoming more than just a team, they've become a family all while saving the universe from a former hero.
O.K K.O! Let's be Heroes:
A boy wants to become a great hero like his friends and family and fight evildoers. Also explains that a hero's journey is long and hard but can be achieved by focus and discipline, while showing that everyone has different sides to them including dark ones and can grow everyday.
the Glenn Howerton went to Julliard thing is even…funnier when you have context to it. Like thousands of people each year want to go to the school and have to go through a long process to even get an audition. to get in they have to perform two monologues and sometimes are asked to perform up to seven. they end up only taking about 20 people each year which is such a small number. While they’re studying at the school they are put through face to face group criticisms where all of the teachers tell them what they’re doing wrong etc. They take all of these classical acting classes, voice classes, movement classes, even a classical clowning class. When Glenn was there people were cut each semester if they weren’t performing well enough. It sounds like such a brutal process day in and day out. Most graduates end up doing theatre or getting serious film roles.
But Glenn deadass graduated from one of the greatest (and most brutal) acting schools in the world and has spent the past 12 years writing and acting in Sunny of ALL things. And that’s not to mention that 80s Show and Coffeetown??? It’s just so funny to me? He spent four years studying under world renowned acting and performing experts, alongside some of the most respected theatre and film actors working today, and spends his life playing Dennis Reynolds and writing this dark comedy that’s set in a seedy bar in Philadelphia? It’s hilarious and so…Glenn?
We are approaching a group of people outside the walls of the city, which is currently on fire and under attack by a dragon.
Fighter: Are they cultists or fleeing villagers?
DM: They’re still about 300 feet away and it’s dark, you can’t tell.
Fighter: I start strutting towards them like in the music video for Stayin’ Alive…actually you know what I’m gonna sing it too.
Paladin: I pull out my lute and start strumming along.
Me (Cleric): I don’t understand why this is happening but I love it. I use thaumaturgy to make like, lasers and fog and shit.
DM: So you’re gonna approach these strangers while performing a full-on 80’s rock show?
Fighter: Hell yeah!
DM: Tarun, why do you have a lute? Are you even proficient with it?
DM: So it’s not just an 80’s rock show, it’s a SHITTY 80’s rock show. All right.
Paladin: Think about it, if they’re friendly then they’ll realize that we’re idiots and not be threatened by us. If they’re cultists maybe they’ll be so caught off guard we’ll get a surprise round.
Me: Good point! This is the best idea we’ve ever had.
DM: sighing begrudingly All of you make performance checks.
The fighter rolls a 16, the paladin rolls a 4, and I roll a 3.
DM: You approach them and finally get close enough to see them by the glow of Rhaela’s light show. They’re villagers. They’re incredibly scared, and now incredibly confused by what they think is supposed to be music. The little boy clinging to his mother’s skirt laughs at your display. Good job.
