Yay, you're back! I enjoy this podcast so much~
I can't tell you why, but Hefty's "Lagoona is a gillman!" really cracked me up. In general, Hefty's laugh is contagious. Listening to you guys just makes me want to meet you IRL, have a few drinks with you and talk geeky things for hours.

I'm actually not a fan of calling an athletic girl a "tomboy". For me a "tomboy" is a girl who rejects femininity and values boys over girls when it comes to friendships. Lagoona clearly doesn't.
She has an interest in watersports and competition, I don't see why that should keep her from wearing a dress and to be fair, all the Roller Maze dolls had high heel rollerblades - normal sports wear seems nonexistant in MH. I mean, Clawdeen plays soccer in killer heels and all the Fearleaders wear them, too *g*

I'm probably the only person to dislike Abbey/Heath. I just can't see her with a guy who constantly oggles other girls and immediatly ignores her when the next best opportunity arises (Jinafire).
I hear Heath is much sweeter in his Home Ick diary, but animated Heath is such a pain to watch sometimes. I know it's funny to have a fire monster be "in heat" all the time and an ice monster to cool him off, but somehow all I feel is pity for Abbey X)
A pretty recent canon couple is Scarah/Invisibilly. They seem to be the embodiment of "cute" and I like them!

I can't believe I haven't commented in this thread yet!  Thanks to everyone who said such nice things, it's awesome that you guys are liking the podcast!  It's so much fun to do, and knowing that people are actually listening makes it especially rewarding.

Listened to Ep0 and Ep1 yesterday and laughed out loud a few times. Especially at Hefty's comments and the Dear Abbey segment :)
Can't wait for the next episode(s)!

PS: Aery's got a sexy voice! :cool:

Zapper, you're makin' me blush.   :inlove:

"Sporty" is probably a better word for Lagoona.  Though I don't think tomboy is necessarily inaccurate, since she does exhibit some characteristics/behaviors considered typical of male gender roles, namely her competitiveness and athleticism, but  I'd also say she's one of the characters who seems to care the least about fashion and frippery.  She doesn't reject femininity wholeheartedly, but maybe part-heartedly. XD

I'm not a fan of Heath in the webisodes either, he's just that annoying "comic relief" boy trope with much less depth than, like, every other MH character.  It feels forced to have those two as a couple; I just can't see a character like Abbey ever actually falling for a character like Heath, it just doesn't seem like a fit to me... 

I haven't kept up with the webisodes though, so maybe I've missed a lot of character development.  Now I want to find a scan online of Heath's diary, too.

It's just the truth! Next time say "I love to go doll shopping for Zapper" in a seductive tone, that would please me  :shifty:

Ah, so I'm not alone. I only ever saw Heath love on here, but that might just be because of Nyan *laughs*
I think it's kinda stupid that even though MH manages to make such diverse female character types, they shy away from making one funny/slapsticky. They have to use guys for that. EAH has a better range of characters in that regard. They have Maddie, Lizzie, even to some extent Cedar and Briar, who are really funny in different ways.

I found the diaries

I think the diary makes Heath more endearing but he still has a massive ego and is unable to read Abbey. Sorry, Heath/Abbey fans, but my fingers are crossed that this will never be official XD

The new line of books (The Ghoulfriend books) are great. Aim for younger public, but less shallow-mind, plus the school is no longer fill with normies having monsters to hide their monstery awesome qualities

Great review on Clawdia!

About Medusa's Myth, some versions had her already pregnant when Perseus beheaded her. So Pegasus and Chrysaor where born once she died.

Also, she is the only one of the gorgons that was born human, but tranfigured by Athena's rage as the impregnating was done (consensual or not) in one of Athena's temples when Medusa was a priest or maiden dedicated to Athena's temple. Other versions have her showing off her beauty and alledging she was more beautiful than the goddess of the temple and was transfigured in rage-jealousy.

In rpg games i think i once read a book that they were amazon like. In like taking human couples to breed and only keeping the daughters, but will have to get back to you guys on that as i don't have the book and will need to research first

Also, i've always picture Deuce being born of an egg ^^U

I'm thinking that Deuce's marking are meant to be scales, because as you guys mentioned, they weren't doing body sculpting with the initial dolls. I loved all of the Greek Mythology in this episode; I find that so interesting.

I think I would turn Invisibilly to stone, so maybe he could be with Rochelle? (I love them as a couple) oh and I totally typed this before Melissa answered when I was listening. haha. Great minds think alike!

In real life I'd probably turn my in-laws to stone. blahhhh.  :P

Not a fan of I <3 Shoes Lala's gloves, personally. I didn't even realize she had them until I deboxed her, and then I was kinda disappointed. I kept them like that, though because I like to have a stock version of every character.

Great episode again guys!


ps- If you ever decide to expand to an EAH news segment, I'd totally be up for it!  ;)

Aww, harsh!
Poor Cleo and Garrott. Won't anybody think of Garrott? People keep on pairing up Rochelle with random guys when she has the sweetest garboyle back home :P

Hefty, you are the cutest.
I really like I<3Shoes Lala's gloved hands as well. She looks so sophisticated in them.

Again a very entertaining podcast! Loved it :)

I find it funny you mention Stheno because the back of Vipirines box says that she's the daughter of Stheno! Thus making her and Duece cousins.

And if memory serves correctly, Crysador was often depicted as a golden giant.

Cleo, I had intended to mention Viperine, but I tend to get in trouble bringing up other characters in character-centric podcasts, lol!

Yep! Aery and I beat Melissa when she gets off topic, then she's forced to spend an hour in the stocks per character diversion ;)
