According to the former creative director Micheal Rianda, the reason some characters have 4 fingers and other have 5 is that they look better with either number on each hand.

Over th Garden Wall is the next v-log series? YES!

Also loved the part where Toby Determined wanted to be a Broadway star in the past. The part where Mabel says “This dream goes nowhere Toby!” cracks me up.

Also The Love God is next. I think the Walkers are going to have mixed feelings about that episode.

Well it is one of the weaker episodes. On the one hand, we really don’t need any more Robbie stuff, but on the other hand, they use the episode to close that chapter saying, ‘We’re done with this guy. He can go screw himself.’ Plus the hot air balloon subplot is funny.

I don’t think they are entirely done with Robbie (since he’s referenced in Bill’s circle), but just done with any romance subplot. They can add more depth to him like they are doing with Wendy, and I’d be okay with it.

Gravity Falls is my favourite show and even I have problems with that episode. Mostly with the A-plot… the B-plot with Stan is hilarious!

Since GF is apparently not coming back before February (sad i know), why couldn’t they have ended on a high note with the amazing Blendin’s Game and started the next run of episodes with above average The Love God? You know, because Valentine’s!

There’s been this one funny little parallel between Soos and Jesus http://meficrow.tumblr.com/post/102374513848/name-is-jesus-miracle-of-repeating-food-a

also goats eyes are normally like that.

also the shorts had hints at the end of the society of the blind eye

Now that you mention the “four vs. five fingers” thing, I think you should check this out.

Over the Garden Wall?! That was pretty much my favorite piece of entertainment I saw all year. Can’t wait to see the vlogs on those. I’ve watched it three times and I’m still picking up on new things. The emotional beats in this episode really hit home for me. The last episode suffered from being too similar to the Ice King’s reveal, as well as not being nearly as effective. This one seemed to insist upon itself a bit less and worked a lot better for it. Both Soos coming to terms with his absent father and coming to see… Read more »

RV is robbie his last name is Valentino also the fact that robbie of all people notices the demon inside giddeon is impressive. gotta give him some respect for that. he also makes the explosions/ muffins just so you know

Truely Funke

Yeah, considering that and the fact that the wounded heart symbol on Robbie’s sweater also appears on Bill’s wheel, one has to wonder if there is actually more to Robbie than we’ve seen so far.

HanSK

well, let’s see
past Wendy was 6 years younger than Dipper
present Wendy is 4 years older than Dipper
less of a difference, but still kinda big, at least at this point in one’s life

The shorts are a good way to pass the waiting time till new GF episodes are out

and Over The Garden Wall may very well be the best animated series ever created

Soos is a Jesus. This episode is my proof. one of many. His first name is “Jesus”. He eats an infinite pizza, in one short pigeons even sits on him in heavenly light. Just wow.

I was just about to comment the same thing. 🙂

I find it kind of hard to believe how young Soos is, and him being that size at like 22 or 23 can’t be good.

THis ep made me love Soos even more, srs how many cartoons have the balls to NOT redeem an asshole parent? I believe that emotional bonds are WAY more important that blood ties, so this ep was very pleasent to me. This ep also cast new light on previous ep where Stan and Soos were interacting, he realyy is a father figure to Soos, and Stan got himself banned on flights becos he tried to delete Soos birthday of the calendar, awesoooooome~~~!

Ardith

Over the Garden Wall? Never heard of it, but I may check it out. This is a really good Soos episode. We even learn his full name. It also explains why Soos is trying to bond with Stan, since he thinks of him as a father figure.

It’s a miniseries that ran on Cartoon Network. Stylistically, it’s like a blend of Adventure Time and Spirited Away work. It’s somewhat episodic, but more-or-less adheres to a three-act-structure. The total runtime is on par with a feature-length movie, at a little under two hours, so I would recommend you pop some popcorn, turn down the lights, and watch it in one go.

It’s not on Netflix, unfortunately. The easiest legal way to watch it is on Cartoon Network’s site, but you need to have a cable TV provider to view more than clips.

Thanks. I don’t watch much TV, so I missed it.

I’m surprised neither of them twigged that the whole Globnar scene was also inspired by the commercial for Crossfire, which the Critic himself reviewed- http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=rCwn1NTK-50#

“Go Billy! The fate of Armageddon is in your hands!”

Alex Hirsch himself said so on his Twitter- apparently the arena itself is modeled on the toy!

Well, this is the first vlog you guys have done that invoked a physical response from me, and one of joy at that; Rob announcing Over the Garden Wall.

Also, the observation about the characters in the show having 4 or 5 (and 6) fingers hasn’t gone unnoticed. Douglas Mackrell – of the youtube channel “The Royal Order of the Holy Mackerel” talks about it in depth here, and it’s a fascinating theory- http://youtu.be/oPXmTgMOJqM Dipper, Mabel, Wendy, Robbie, and a few others dotted around Gravity Falls have four fingers, while Soos, Gideon, and the rest of Wendy’s teenage friends have five. It may be nothing, but the idea that it’s linked with the characters knowledge about the evil of the world is still a fascinating one- even if it’s… Read more »

RV is Robbie V

I hope the fingers mean something. Or that they play it off as a joke (Hey Dipper, did you notice that since we got here we are missing a finger?

Tom Smith
Guest

Again, I reference Super Fogeys.

If we have a future then that implies that humanity “wins” the apocalypse. And Dipper could just ask Blendin for a history book which could solve the mystery.

This episode is also extremely bizarre, like its going to have a second part later. Why is the laser tag area sector so run down? Why did the mattress shop become a laser tag arena? Did leaving the laser tag guns behind have any impact? So many Chekov rifles that were not fired.

You’re getting closer to figure out who the author is, I know who the author is but it’s still really weird! Also big clue in this episode this is the first episode where Zeus gets his job?

Other clue Gideon, is a little demon!

Ardith
Guest

It’s Soos, which is short for Jesús as we find out in this episode.

4 and 5 finger thing is not a mistake. All the children, most teenagers, and various background adults have four fingers. Most of the adults and Gideon have five. However, in the season one finally, Gideon has four fingers. The creator of the show said that the number of finger were based on “what looked better.” In general, four fingers are better for characters with smaller hands (makes them look less crowded), however Gideon’s hands are small yet he has 5… Gideon also seems to be very bright for a child his age. He knows a lot about the books… Read more »

And there is one episode left. I wonder what Vlog they will do next.

I loved this episode. And this episode didn’t really further the plot, there weren’t any mysteries. Plus I noticed how most episodes further the plot like something big is gonna happen and then it takes breather with filler episodes which is just great. Plus I loved Soos in the episode so much. He’s too awesome and really I heard that many related to this particular episode too which really hits home. Oh yes, I can’t wait till you do the shorts and Over The Garden Wall. I’m such a geek that I even made a Facebook group about the show… Read more »

Something I noticed: when Dipper and Mabel are in the past Mr. and Mrs. Gleeful with baby Gideon in a carriage pass by in the background and they look like such a happy, normal family that you would never guess how that’s eventually going to go. Which leads me to my theory on what happened to Mrs. Gleeful. We saw last episode that Bud Gleeful was part of the Blind Eye and the end of episode message implied that he used the Society’s memory erasing technology to forget about the worst of Gideon’s outbursts; but I think that, for whatever… Read more »
