Did they take Duck Tales off the Disney Now site?

Ok. It's back on there, but the new episodes are not. Hrm.

Okay I wasn't expecting an episode titled "Doomsday Vault" to be a about an actual real thing (well, more or less), but here we are. Neat.

I'm up through "Nothing Can Stop Della Duck!" and it's been a pretty middling group of episodes for me. With the exception of "The Outlaw Scrooge McDuck!" which I loved, none of them really felt like adventures, and relied a bit too much on people withholding information for no reason or overhearing a conversation and leaving in the middle of a sentence. The Moon city feels contentless and empty, and would have benefited from a full episode to actually give it some context, especially if it's setting up a larger arc.

The character work has been great, though, and we've laughed a ton. And when this show is on, it's on, so it's like watching a typical kids show that occasionally whips up something great.

Djinn is this show's version of Dijon, right? He's okay, I guess.

Goldie continues to be Fujiko, and I love it. Definitely better than the withered and defeated old crone in the comics. She works best when used sparingly but I'm glad to see an arc emerging.

Glomgold as a monomaniacal South African tycoon in scotsface is still the cleverest idea this show has had, but he's way too stupid. He's only felt like a real threat a couple of times. I do like the beleaguered executive, though.

The show continues to sideline Donald and I hate it. He's the best character on the show and has amazing chemistry with Scrooge. "Donald is sick of constant adventuring" doesn't really work if he hasn't been on an adventure in ages. Though apparently they're airing episodes out of order (again) so maybe the pacing is just off (again). I get that the show's cast is too large but he really should be one of the mains.

Is it just me, or was on of the extras in the first scene of Friday's Darkwing episode totally wearing the Oppai shirt from One Punch Man?

Well, I mean... Darkwing-centric episode. Sorry if I oversold expectations.

Della Duck is to motherhood as Goku is to fatherhood.
