Halloween is a time of year for scary TV episodes. The show I’m going to talk about could be scary, funny or emotional. The show is Gravity Falls.
Thoughts: When you start the show, it won’t feel that scary. Well, maybe a little, but mostly just weird and funny. But, that is what the show is going for. That is why they made the main villain of the show look like a demonic Dorito.
Basis: During the summer, twins (Dipper and Mable) get dropped off at their Great Uncle (Grunkle) Stan’s place in Gravity Falls, Oregon. There they find out that their grunkle is a con artist, and the town is very unusual. At Grunkle Stan’s shop they find Soos and Wendy, two good friends that will help them. Dipper is sent out to put up signs, and finds a secret, a special journal with an unknown author. Dipper, Mabel, Soos, and Wendy start their big adventure to find the author, while Stan is trying to keep the twins away from the weirdness by denying everything. During this, they fight zombies, ghosts and video game characters, while making both friends and enemies. During this adventure they find out facts about Gravity Falls, and who their grunkle really is. This 2 season T.V. show is said to be the show that will fix Disney Channel's decline in good content and has gotten an 8.5 on Rotten Tomatoes.
This is a fun show that anyone can get into and it feels like a well-made mystery/ adventure. It’s a show that not everyone will like, but you have to watch a couple of episodes before you make up your mind.
