The Really Loud House

New episode of TRLH is about to premiere. Thought I'd make the thread myself this time. Hoping my connection doesn't drop during the live watch like it did during the first premiere. I'm really curious about what they're going to do with this Lori Comes Back Home storyline.

Aaaand I actually watched the entire episode before remembering I forgot to post this thread after writing it out, so I'm posting it now, and I'll be posting my review a little later. I hope you'll join me if you watched it! No episode specific OP image because I'm not good at finding those the way some other anons are.

    Did you at least record it?

      Sorry man, I'm lucky if I can watch it without the stream dropping let alone record it. I feel for you though, I hope the DL comes soon for everybody that missed it.

      Anyway, long-ass review coming up.

      Well well well. What do I think of the third episode of the second season of the The Really Loud House? To be honest, it gave me a lot to think about. Initially, I was disappointed that they didn't immediately follow up on that 'Lori's leaving college and moving back in' storyline that was the b-plot to the season premiere. I'm EXTREMELY intrigued by that and I want them to go back to it ASAP, especially considering her telling her parents was the stinger ending to the premiere. Getting Lori back into the regular cast would be a major score and it was probably the most exciting and substantial development of episodes 1/2 or indeed either season.

      Another thing that took me by surprise is the way they included a subtle but pretty major, firm timeskip from s1, when Lincoln mentions he and Charlie have been dating for a *year*. That really took me aback. The show seems to be happening in real calendar time relative to the real world, which seems insane to me but I guess that's one way to handle the actors growing up. I mean...I don't know if it's a good idea even if it's working for now, but I guess we'll see.

      When it comes to the episode itself, I thought it was genuinely very good. It was actually good enough that my disappointment they didn't address the Lori thing didn't bug me too much. Highly funny, well paced, well-acted and what's more well paced within scenes as well (none of the fast talking that plagued the first four episodes of this series). It was also pretty soulful in general and had good interactions, especially the b-plot with the whole family was great but even the road trip with the teacher felt cool. Felt like a really meaty episode with a lot to it despite just being a normal half hour. Like I always say, an episode heavily featuring the whole family is nine times out of ten a guaranteed winner.

      Overall I'd say it's up to the standards of the back half of season 1, which is something I find really exciting. In s1 the show seemed like it only got better with every new ep and while it's too early to say that about s2 I'm glad at least it's maintaining the base standard that second half left off on.

      The conclusion of the a-plot took me by surprise. I knew there would be some kind of consequences from Lincoln rejecting Charlie's phonecalls for a month, but I couldn't figure out exactly what it was since she was in there with him in the opening scene in the balloon up in the air together, so it couldn't be her telling him off and breaking up with him, surely.

      In that sense, the way they engineered the whole thing did impress me, since I really wasn't expecting a new boyfriend. The awkward scene where they have to spend four hours in the balloon together was pretty funny. Frankly, I really appreciated the way they showed Lincoln handling himself. That's a fricked up situation to be in but he didn't beg, plead or cry, emotionally crumble over the course of the four hours, didn't make a big spectacle of himself like we've come to expect from male characters in situations like this. That's pretty respectful treatment and I'm grateful for it. If that had been Fry or Mordecai or Hell even Finn I can imagine them sitting there trying not to sob the entire time and watching that would have been really grim. While Lincoln was obviously hurt, he was a man about it and took it with class, concealed his pain and still found the spirit to make a few jokes that while they were somewhat at his expense didn't feel too spiteful.

        It makes me think actually, if this had been an adult sitcom, I get the sense the whole thing would have been way more brutal and WAY more humiliating to the main male character. Does anyone understand what I mean by that? I really thought this had class, I mean it was a childhood romantic disappointment but that was all, they didn't use it as an opportunity to beat/berate/humiliate the MC for his 'wrongs' which is what you see pretty much every time I've seen this sort of scenario before. It didn't feel spiteful. I think Scrubs had an episode with a story that was kind of like this and it was brutal to JD by contrast. This felt decent-hearted and respectful.

        I admit, part of me thinks some of that effect might be because Lincoln was looking pretty dashing this episode, objectively speaking, so he didn't get mogged by the new BF which is the cheap hacky way to do this scenario most writers do when they do it. Frankly he did a little mogging of his own if you ask me. I don't know if the makeup guy is doing something different for his skin but I think he's cutting a pretty handsome figure for a boy his age. They gave him that Leon Kennedy from RE4 haircut too with the half-bangs and it's working for him. He was looking like the type of boy they put on the cover of Tiger Beat this episode.

          Ultimately, I always thought Charlie and Lincoln were kind of a mismatch personally and didn't have much chemistry, maybe because Lincoln's actor looks a lot older than Charlie's, and Charlie herself never really seemed to bring much of anything to the table as far as her own character, but I'm fairly satisfied with the resolution and am curious to see where they'll go from here as far as Lincoln's love life. I genuinely wonder if Ronnie Anne will show up again but given they seem to be giving everyone different love interests than those from the cartoon (the school of rock kid for Leni instead of Gavin, some new guy that's not benny for Luan ((though he shares all of Benny's traits to be fair)), I just don't know. The s1 puppy love angle was cute I admit but now that Lincoln's so obviously a teenager I kind of want to see him with a girl that's a little more aggressive and challenges him more to put him on the backfoot, the way his sisters do. Maybe that's just the RA fan in me though. In any case there's always something deeply satisfying about a calculating, slick character having a love interest just bullrush through his carefully laid plans, cut off his escape routes, and simply ask when they're having their first date.

          All in all, a pretty fine episode that continues to open up the show and makes a little room by clearing up some of last season's baggage. Finally, I was pretty impressed with all the location work. This one really traveled it felt like. Did anyone get a good look at that field where they landed? Or Bollhoffner's ex-wife's house or that pissed off real life non-CGI big-ass dog ferociously tearing at rope of their hot air balloon as they took off? That last look Lincoln and Charlie gave each other was nice and bittersweet, and the whole family taking Lincoln into their arms to ease his heartbreak was a pretty perfect ending imo. Clyde was a true bro throughout the episode too.

            Damn, there was a last part to my review I forgot to post:

            Anyway, I got to admit, part of me thinks it's really really really weird to see these teenage coming-of-age style stories set in The Loud House, with a Lincoln that is clearly a teenager himself. This is not the type of thing I'd want to see in the cartoon since it moves things forward too much and changes the basic dynamics way too much for my tastes to the point it chips at the foundation this giant institution of a franchise is built on, but it did play to some of the live action's strengths and some of the unavoidable real life growing of the actors so that, I think, is intriguing. The cartoon's strength by contrast is that it's innately timeless so you don't have to make compromises like that, they can be the same perfect age for SoL adventures forever, which is why I so deeply disagreed with the timeskip decision and having Lori moving out.

            Also I liked Bollhoffner more in this episode than I've liked him in any episode of the cartoon. His relationship with Lincoln and Clyde is funny and his plot to steal his dog back from his ex-wife was fricking great. That joke was definitely for the adults watching this show with their kids. I think I've seen that actor before. He's a comedian, right?

            Elaborate.

            Yep that was a two parter, probably was the originally finale until they gave the show more episodes.

            The only other midseason special in the franchise is KotC. Plus TLH S1E13 also looks like a finale just like Homespun.

            Sorry, wait, the the 10th episode was the one where Tony Hawk shows up and stuff... It felt more finale like because some one leaving and being a two parter.

            That's the 12th!

      Yeah, I was about to say in the other thread that Lori wanting to drop out seemed like it would have been a much better basis to do the premiere than Lincoln losing his memories due to jellybeans (though I was always going to dislike that part).

        I'm torn. I really liked both if I'm honest and I think weaving them together like that was the way to go. I imagine you don't like the jellybeans because you feel they're too zany and not grounded enough for the show? I admit, Lisa's superscience, used sparingly, just doesn't bother me the way ghosts and magic do. I think it's because of the unspoken impliaction that Lisa is a unique case Dexter style supergenius who's nonsensense is localized and contained almost entirely to her own family so you can get away with other people not knowing about it or making much of it, but if there's ghosts and magic out there in the wild, in the regular ass Loud House world, it just seems to throw everything about the setting into question. Least that's the way I feel about it. I thought the jellybean plot was a good excuse to create a meaningful problem that was able to summon up meaningful pathos and stakes when it needed to and the whole thing ended up being a great special, and the Lori leaving college thing being the surprise b-plot made it so it was hard to settle down because it's such big, exciting news, but the viewer has so much else on their plate and the ongoing situation is so big that like the characters you end up having to juggle all this too much to focus on it, and it added nicely to the sense of chaos. This is not a card I'd play every time but it was effective this time.

          I mean, I just finished the first half, but I noticed that the plot was rather thin, just an excuse to do a bunch of musical numbers. Contrast that with “Really Loud Music”, where the musical numbers serve as a device to move the plot along.
          > I admit, Lisa's superscience, used sparingly, just doesn't bother me the way ghosts and magic do.

          Yeah. And it doesn’t help that Lisa is kinda overused. Neither the setting, nor the character really fit anymore. I would like to contrast that with Wren from ‘Craig of the Creek’ and Lunella Lafayette from ‘Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur. Wren is a somewhat larger-than-life figure in a mundane atmosphere that could just as easily be explained, while Lunella is a character that fits in the Marvel universe that show constructs.

      Episode was good, they really went for Charlie and Lincoln breaking up. I liked Bolhofner here, kind of like how he's a good mixture and kind of less intense compared to cartoon version, though I do like cartoon version. Lynn Sr. had a nice plot too, he is a good dad, but gets caught up in himself. The other Loud kids plot was nice.

      Yeah, I was about to say in the other thread that Lori wanting to drop out seemed like it would have been a much better basis to do the premiere than Lincoln losing his memories due to jellybeans (though I was always going to dislike that part).

      I think the Lori thing didn't come up this episode because this was episode 10 of season 2 production wise. They going out of order for some reason.

        I had no idea. That fricking sucks dude, that means Lori will only officially be in the house for ten episodes. I guess they wanted to open strong with that special. I think they like midseason specials, wasn't the Princess and the Gemerald a midseason two parter as well?

        Are you sure? Because I was just looking at the backstage 'making of' for the musical episode and Wolfgang says "Okay, right now we are learning the choreography (Lisa cuts him off- 'REHEARSING!'-) for the final number in the first episode of season two of Really Loud House."

            Oh, yeah, I see what you mean. Well in any case I hope Lori is brought back home soon. Interesting they'd select this episode to air second in lieu of something that addresses the Lori stinger from the premiere. It was a good episode but it does makes me wonder if the purpose was to get the Charliecoln breakup out there asap to clear the shipping decks for something else, I'm aware that producers/execs are aware viewers tend to be into that type of stuff even in shows like this. I mean if I'm honest it kind of felt to me anyway like they broke up in the two parter from the first season when she moves away, like that was supposed to be a final sweet moment they shared and the whole idea was to give her something to remember him by, but she came back in a later episode on an ipad iirc and was his legit long distance girlfriend for a full year according to this episode.

            I wonder if they still would have had her move away when they first conceived of the character if they knew TRLH was going to be more than ten episodes, which was its original order. Reminds me of the Ronnie Anne situation although of course Charlie is no Ronnie Anne.
