Screener Squad: The Owl House

The Owl House complete series review


Children of the Boiling Isles, it is time for us to come together in unity and binge the the entirety the Disney channel magical hit sensation The Owl House. The show features a plethora of humans, witches, demons, and palisman co-existing on the remains of a dead festering corpse of a massive titan. Its bones and organs are just a part of the infrastructure and charm. A socially awkward human named Luz (Sarah-Nicole Robles) finds herself spirited away to the isles when chasing an owl that snatched her favourite book. Proving herself useful in horrifying situations, she apprentices under Eda (Wendie Malick) a wild witch who refuses to join the emperor’s coven and chooses to practice magic unrestrained by the rules of conformity. Eda’s sister Lilith (Cissy Jones) implores her estranged sister to pledge loyalty to Emperor Belos (Matthew Rhys) who will in exchange cure Eda’s childhood curse. Family drama aside, Luz befriends Willow (Tati Gabrielle), Gus (Issac Ryan Brown), and a collective of magical characters at Hexside, the school for witches. Along with an adorable demon with fuzzy little paws named King (Alex Hirsch), a house demon named Hooty (Also Alex Hirsch), and Hexsides most promising student with a very large chip on her shoulder, Amity (Mae Whitman), Luz will dive into grand adventure and uncover the mystery of the titan and the secret intentions of Emperor Belos. Bradly, Jordan, Harmoni, and Tessa brew up some great conversation about witches, magical worlds, and how weirdos of all shapes, sizes, genders, and orientations gotta stick together.

Bradly Martin (Screener Squad, Eye on the Prize, Breakfast Pub)

Bradly Martin was born in the united states and grew up on a healthy diet of sports, films, and books. A rather shy lad who kept to himself, Bradly soon discovered the best way to know a person was to know what people liked. Throughout the years Bradly became a fan of many things and a fanatic of none. From Doctor Dre, to Doctor Strange and the who’s who of Whos. From Playstation to the Dreamcast and Marvel to DC. From LeBron James to James Bond and Lord of the Rings to Lord Palmerston (or Pitt the Elder if you agree with Wade Boggs) and is a huge fan of dad jokes and randomly obscure Simpsons references. Armed with a vast knowledge of comics, films, and pop culture. Bradly traveled the world making friends and sharing takes. As a young man Bradly married the love of his life young and grew older every year with each new child brought into the brood. If trends continue, Scientists predict that .2% of Canada (where Bradly and family reside) will be populated by Bradly’s children by the year 2029. You can hear him leading and listening to his favorite critics on the Screener Squad and Eye on the prize and maybe even provide some comments of his own.



Jordan Cobb (Screener Squad)

Born with a comic book in one hand, a camera in the other, and in front of the television as WrestleMania played out, Jordan Worth Cobb was thus birthed into this crazy world. A Digital Filmmaking major from the University of Central Arkansas, Jordan has done it all in film from directing, writing, editing, and producing in addition to skills involved in film and TV criticism, journalism, and years of podcasting experience. On any given day, her ADHD riddled brain bounces focus from film to pro wrestling to TV to superheroes to noir to video games to espionage and yes, even to sports. She played little league you know. For more of this eccentric nerd, you can follow her on Twitter here and read her original writings on Deepest Corners of My Notebook.



Harmoni Anderson (Screener Squad, Highly Suspect Reviews, Unstabletop Gaming)

Harmoni is a mermaid-haired, millennial, rum drinking, Section 31, Slytherin (who’s divorced J.K. Rowling) preschool/nursery teacher and multi genre geek who also loves all things film, tv, fashion, makeup, and an embarrassingly huge BTS stan. Like really embarrassing. As in, mention them and then sit back and watch the insanity. Harmoni likes being able to game and talk movies/TV with people that aren’t 3 feet tall or all that demanding of her. Plus she can curse at us and not get fired….so bonus!



Tessa Morrison (Highly Suspect Reviews, Screener Squad, Unstabletop Gamers)

Well-rounded nerd and artist, Tessa Morrison grew up in the misty mountains of West Virginia and was constantly ridiculed for being a “weirdo.” Then moved to Austin in 2009 where people said the same thing, but in an endearing tone. Tessa works an office day job, creates puppets and fiber art, cosplays, models for gaming and animation studios, and volunteers for various organizations. One of which is the Other Worlds Film Festival, Austin’s first SciFi film fest, working in the capacity of Outreach Director and programmer. Another is local DIY-comedy-wrestling league, Party World Rasslin’, where Tessa scrambles around stage-handing and doing art department nonsense. Wrote and contributed to website and magazine Strange Kids Club for five years reviewing films, video games, and Halloween candy. Co-hosted a Public Access show called Ladies of Fandom. Previously guested on podcasts Blood Over Texas, Threequel Club, Trash in the Can, Retro Movie Roundtable, and Nerds with Mics.
