C- (it’s not worth rewatching although it does have good elements)
D+ (a bad episode with a few good things in it)

D- (a terrible episode with badly written characters and butchered moral)
F (horrible and unwatchable)


Greetings, everyone! This is yours truly back with more The Owl House content! Tonight, I will be reviewing what I thought about the third episode of the series “I Was a Teenage Abomination”. Now this episode was a big one for me because it finally introduces some new characters who will be the main and supporting characters throughout the series. It opened new paths for Luz to walk in where she will develop some new friendships... and eventually develop a relationship with someone. ;)

In this episode, we see Luz end up meeting Willow (voiced by Tati Gabrielle) who is a student at Hexside. In my opinion, Willow is one of the most interesting characters in the show and has a unique skill in planet magic. I’m also gonna go ahead and say that Willow deserves her own episode some day because, as the show progresses, she hasn’t gotten enough attention and screen time as opposed to Amity, Luz, and others. Come on, Disney, give her some love!

Speaking of new characters, we are also introduced to Amity Blight (voiced by Mae Whitman), the top student at Hexside!

To be completely frank, she is not one of my favorite characters but she is nonetheless a very fun character with tremendous character development and a solid backstory. I also like the fact that she is a cannon lesbian character in this show. Once again, we see how bold Dana Terrace was in representing LGBTQ+ characters in the show and validating them. Great job on her part!

In her debut here, she is one of the main bullies at school and a rival of Luz. This was surely the beginning of their dynamic interaction together. I’ll just leave it at that for now.

We also see Gus (voiced by Isaac Ryan Brown) who is likewise yet another underrated, underutilized supporting character who deserves just as more spotlight as Willow. Despite the fact that he was somewhat irritating in this episode, he got better as he matured throughout the show (so far). I’m still hoping we see more of this precious soul.

Finally, we see that the principal of the Hexside School is Principal Bump. Two things I like about this character: 1). He is voiced by Bumper Robinson who also voiced Bumblebee and Blitzwing in Transformers: Animated. 2). His character design. I really like how that demon creature from behind his neck covers his eyes with its own. It just looks fascinating to me, and I don’t know why. I see you, Bumper Robinson! Your voice is so talented! Oh, and it’s kinda funny how his name is “Bump” whereas his voice actor’s first name is “Bumper”. Is that what they intended?

So yeah, this episode introduced a lot of new characters who may appear as bland at first but later on improved through the good writing and character development Dana and the others put forth. Additionally, we learn that we must never be afraid to stand with those who may be different from others and encourage them to never be afraid to be who they are and use their unique talents for the good of others.

Overall, this was quite a fun episode to watch and loved seeing Bumper Robinson being a part of this series as a supporting character. Thus, I give it a B+!


Peace!
