Just saw Planet of the Dragons. Have to say, I freaking loved it! This and "Fall Of Xiaolin" are my favorite episodes so far! Best showdown this season,(even though Clay lost :C ). I didn't like how obvious the moral was, and how they kept pushing it in my face, but other than that, I hugely enjoyed the storyline. I hope Clay competes in more showdowns soon...

If I could create a Shen-Gon-Wu? The Jupiter Bolt. It either has the ability to repel darkness and bring light back in dark times(if in the hands of good) or to plunge the world into darkness and nearly drown out all light(in the hands of evil.) There's a lot at stake with this Wu, and if the Heylin side got it, then we'd probably have of of 'em 3-part episodes on our hands.

Next SGW in the show? Hopefully a remake of the Eye of Dashi or a remake of the Reversing Mirror...I've been missing those Wu.

Darkpokeball, you're going to love this episode. The Green Monkey mask is revealed and the Monks set out to go find it in the Land of One Thousand and One Miseries. Chase figures it out and contacts the Warden, ordering him to make sure it never falls in the Monk's hands. Menawhile, the monks try to figure out a strategy from what they know from Kimiko's sister, Tigress. She was supposed to be on a quest looking for it. After arriving in the land, the monks fun into the Warden, who puts them through three miseries before the episode ends.
There is a side story in this episode where Shadow and I are in the same boat. Chase develops and interest in Tigress, telling Shadow that she could be a useful ally. This leads to Shadow wondering what she is to Chase and who she really is.
My thoughts: FINALLY! Something with a CLIFFHANGER!!! AND CHASE IS IN IT!! *SQUEE* What? He's interested in Tigress? Not on my watch, Shadow, stop him! Hey, the Warden has batman symbols on his collar. When are we going to meet Tigress? I'll continue my thoughts later, I have to go. Sorry!
My thoughts continued: Chase is one heck of a jerk in this episode. It's totally obvious that Shadow wants to please him, and there he goes rambling about Kimiko's "intriguing" sister. Hopeless much? I have to admit I like this side of Chase though, awfully anti-romantic. But other things bothered me in this episode; little things like the voice acting (again). It just didn't sound realistic, and I don't know if it was just the quality of my video, but sometimes the characters talk without moving their mouths. That was creepy. But another congrats to the Canadian staff for giving it their best. Animation was as good as always, and the recording was without flaws. Plot was good too since it now has a cliffhanger. There is a new SGW that allows one to dig underground, and the Lotus Twister makes its return.
@Darkpokeball: you saw the ending (I don't know how you got there) so there isn't really much after what you have described. The Monks land in a desert area, Warden gives them a new riddle, and Chase is obsured from their vision. He then says that he might have to go after it himself-then cliffhanger! Dun dun dunnnn....
In a nutshell for those of you who don't like to read, here are three reasons to go watch it:
1) Chase is in it
2) Shadow is in it
3) There. Is. A. Freaking. Cliffhanger.
See you all next week! <3

I woke up this morning and saw a small part of it...I was confused. Basically, Omi destroyed something, but there was this guy that said the game wasn't over and showed the monks the way out. It began to slowly close, but Omi said he had an idea. He used a new Wu of some sort, flew(and the monks all grabbed onto him) and grabbed Jack. THen he flew towards the way out, which was still closing. That's all I saw. But, I must admit: I'm interested. You say it's a cliffhanger...that makes me happy. Hopefully this is a 3-part ep! I'll watch it ASAP!

I just found out that the next episode "Mi Temple, Mi Casa" won't be on air until December 6th! Oh, and it doesn't look like it continues the story Something about the temple having a talking tree. But the next two episodes after that, "Heylin Within" and "Tigress Woo" seem to be interesting as Chase and Tigress will be in them. I personally can't wait until Tigress gets there so Shadow can kick her tail. But in "Tigress Woo", Kimiko has to find out if Tigress is on the side of good or evil. I really hope good. Really. If she becomes Chase's new sidekick I'm going to be seriously enraged. What happened to the good old days when the only thing I had to be jealous about was a floating head?

Okay, so after a two week hiatus, the 13th episode FINALLY comes out. I think I'll do this review differently because I had no idea what was going on.
Pros: New episode, new SGW, new character, Chase is in it, showdown in cartoon.
Cons; Doesn't follow up on the Monkey Mask, Chase's full body wasn't in it in its human form, no Shadow.
The only thing I got was that when cleaning the temple, the monks run into a talking tree who happens to be Barky, the Xiaolin Dragon of Wood. Chase then uses some mystical power to take over Barky and therefore the temple, transforming it into some kind of haunted house. The monks each face their worst fears but finally meet up thanks to Dojo and face Chase. In a showdown, Barky manages to find the strength to banish Chase's aura from his own tree form and save the monks. The monks then return to the temple to find Master Fung.
My thoughts: This episode was Lame with a capital L, which I didn't even know was possible with an amazing writer like Christy Hui. But it was just chock full of awkward and dull moments. But I'm glad Chase was in it. Master Fung and Dojo are getting on my nerves though.
The new SWG are nothing special, just the Elemental ones from the first series, and some of the new ones Barky had weren't identified.
Chase was totally out of character. I'm glad he's finally doing something significant since taking over the temple, but he just didn't seem like himself and I can't quite place my finger on it.
Let me know what you think, if anyone even checks this anymore.
