January 21st.

No synopsis yet.

The title does intrigue me...

I know that one should never judge a book by it's cover as it were. However the name of this episode has me very intrigued as well. It could be that more that just Simba's Pride is getting ready to stand with The Lion Guard should Scar's Army attack. I am very excited to see what this is about.

I saw it. Was an ok episode. At the very least it did something new with the current storyline.

it was mediocre. And Makuu's words about
"if there's ever trouble for anyone in the Pride Lands, we'll be there" don't fit SP's plot. When Zira came, no animal came to help Simba. Maybe he didn't ask them for help, but why? Even one elephant could help them win.

One thing they left out was getting Simbas family together as well, but maybe it best they, didn't I dont know, but what really bothers me is how they dont consider that elephants cant just go down on a slope, elephants need to be on level ground, but thats me thinking in reality.

I'm more bothered by how the megaherbivores (the elephants and rhinos in particular, but this also extends to the hippos, giraffes, and buffalo) are so helpless/spineless in this show and afraid of small groups of hyenas and jackals. Just by virtue of size alone, these are animals that entire lion prides usually stay from -- the recorded instances of them doing so are either flukes or regional specialization where a particular pride figured out a specific hunting technique -- rarer still are they actually successful. And large herbivores tend to be really aggressive on top of that, so it's kinda weird to not see them at least occasionally presented as antagonistic. I can't think of any instance where the main plot of an episode featured an herbivore as an antagonist.

Anyway, short rant aside, episode overall was pretty "meh", but I know it's setting up for a specific future Season 2 episode (spoiled myself a bit with those Ukrainian clips that came out last week) so hopefully the payoff is decent.

it's interesting that in SP the was a scene where angry rhinos were chsing Kiara and Kovu (obviously they didn't care about her royal status) abd it seemed better.
In TLG all animals are helpless. Jackals attack crocodiles and buffalos, hyenas attack rhinos and hippos. :roll: :facepaw:
