I first heard about Gravity Falls around 2013-ish because my sister loved the show, but it wasn’t until about a year later in 2014 (shortly before season 2 started) that I finally gave it a shot myself, I fell in love with it almost immediately, it was funny, had really likeable characters, and there was a mystery aspect to the show that kept me interested. During 2014-2016 I was absolutely obsessed with the show and would even go so far as to say it was my favorite show during that time period. After a few episodes into the second season I finally decided to stop watching random episodes out of order and actually get caught up from the beginning, and from then on I watched every new episode shortly after they aired (as I had no access to Disney XD), and was actually excited to see where the story went, which was a first for a cartoon for me. I can’t even tell you how many YouTube videos I watched discussing theories about where the show would go next, which is something I almost never do for any other shows, but I was just that interested. It was a great show from beginning to end, and even at its weakest episodes it was still enjoyable. Kids can enjoy the show, but I honestly think it will appeal to teens and adults just as much, if not more. If you’ve never watched the show but are interested I can’t stress enough how much I recommend picking this up; also if it is your first time watching, don’t look anything about the show up, don’t read anything about it, don’t watch any videos about it, because you will get spoilers, and for a first time viewing no spoilers is the best way to go in. Also for this boxset specifically, don’t watch any of the extras or listen to any of the commentary tracks until you’ve watched the entire series, because they don’t hesitate to go into spoiler territory, and I mean like major spoiler stuff, during the commentary for the first episode they mention a huge reveal that happens near the end of season 2, so keep that in mind. It’s honestly a miracle this boxset even happened, as much as I really wanted a Blu-ray boxset of the show (or at least a DVD one) because I’m a sucker for physical media, I didn’t actually expect it to happen, because this is Disney we’re talking about, I don’t know if they have something against full series releases of their shows or something, but it seems to almost never happen, but I’m glad it happened for Gravity Falls.
