Some Kind of Review: Reunion (Amphibia)

I didn’t put this in Vintage Reviews since this came out after this site was created nor did I put this in First Impressions since I’ve watched this THREE times already.

Original Airdate: July 18, 2019 (Disney Channel)

Starring: Brenda Song, Justin Felbinger, Bill Farmer, Anna Akana

Amphibia has got to be one of my favorite TV shows in recent years. It features a whole cast of loveable characters, there’s a sense of wonder in it, and there’s also a huge mystery element that carries the show as well. The show’s first season has Anne Boonchuy (Brenda Song) bunking in with the Plantar family after she and 2 other friends (Sasha (Anna Akana) and Marcy) get transported into a magical frog world called Amphibia. During her time there, she grows to be a well-respected citizen in Wartwood.

If there was any episode that cemented my opinion as one of the best TV shows recently, this would be it. It packs so much into one 22-minute package (most of the episodes are 11-minutes long; this episode is split into 3 segments) and the payoff is simply incredible.

(SPOILERS! MAJOR SPOILERS UP AHAEAD! IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO GET SPOILED, WATCH THIS EPISODE (or the season if you haven’t watched this show yet) AND THEN READ THIS REVIEW AFTERWARDS!)
