The Dragon Prince (Netflix) TV Show Review

This review contains minor spoilers!

It’s been awhile since I’ve watched an animated TV series. The last ones being Avatar: The Last Airbender, and it’s spin-off, The Legend of Korra. Both shows are truly awesome, and if you have time, I highly recommend checking them out!

The Dragon Prince is an animated, fantasy Netflix show created by Aaron Ehasz and Justin Richmond. This show is sooo magical, literally and figuratively!

The Dragon Prince follows the journey of princes Ezran (Sasha Rojen), his older half-brother Callum (Jack De Sena), and a young elf, Rayla (Paula Burrows), as they embark on the most important mission of their lives – to return the dragon prince to his mom and stop a war between humans and magical beings that’s tearing apart their continent of Xadia.

I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly The Dragon Prince drew me in. Here I am, flicking through Netflix (which can take hours! You bingers understand me.), and this was being advertised. I put it on, not really thinking about much, and I was soon glued to the TV. My niece and nephew joined me in watching, and soon after, my nephew thought he was a wizard! What I like about this show is that kids, teens, or adults can watch and enjoy it. It deals with enough themes for everyone.

One reason why this show is so good is because of the unlikely pairing of the main characters. In the show, the humans are at war with the magical creatures. The continent of Xadia is split in half, with humans occupying one half, and magical creatures occupying the other. The border of both sides was monitored by the dragon king, but he’s killed off before the show starts. That’s why the main characters Callum, Ezran, and the elf, Rayla, makes the show interesting. They’re suppose to be enemies, but they come together to protect the dragon king’s offspring, and stop the wars between the two opposing sides.

The show gets dark pretty quick. The humans start practicing dark magic, in which they need to use the essence of magical beings to do so. They actually have to kill them! So….this is maybe why the magical beings aren’t feeling the humans.

Another thing I really liked was how diverse the characters are. Its always awesome to see characters everyone can relate to.

These streaming apps are pushing out gem after gem! I’m swamped with shows, which is a blessing for a TV lover! This show currently contains three seasons, with a forth season coming out in 2020!!

For all of you cartoon lovers out there, I recommend checking out this beauty of a show. Even if animated shows aren’t your thing, at least check it out because of the story! It’s funny, witty, full of magic, has a dark streak, and the relationships are developed in a great way. It’s another one of the great aspects of the show. Definitely give it a watch – you WON’T be disappointed!

Mixture of Dreams Part 21 (Mythology Edition)

The Giant was thirsty, and wanted a cup of knowledge. He thought to quench his thirst, with Deities to acknowledge. The Giant took a trip, into the wondrous world of Myths. Passion was on his mind, and he was starting from the top of Love’s list. The Giant found himself in a very enchanting realm, with joyous whelm. There was this extraordinary feeling, with colors so appealing.

The Giant walked into a warm tower, and was caught by surprise. An awe washed upon his face, of the beautiful figures he started to recognize. The Giant was in the presence of Goddesses, towering over his giant body. Five Goddesses of love, golden radiance of passion, they embodied. There was Oshun of the Orishas and Freya from Norse. Aphrodite from Greek and Hathor of Egyptian lores. In the middle sat Inanna of Sumer, who welcomed me with grace. They were all smiling, and offered some wine to taste. The Giant gladly accepted, while each Goddess told a story. He sat on the ground, blushing, excited to hear the divine auditory.

The Giant could stay here forever, though he realized it was time to go. Night was upon him, and his dreams were coming to flow. The Giant bowed, and bid the smiling Goddesses a farewell. How honored he was, being in this Utopian spell. The Giant, glowing, opened his eyes, and appeared in front of his bed. He climbed in, and soon, beautiful dreams filled his head.

Good night, and sweet dreams, you all. This Giant, hopes that warm passion fills the heart, while you stand tall.

Random of the Day: Glowing Skin 4 The Win

Just wanted to share some helpful skin tips with everyone. I’ve always had an issue with acne, even as an adult. I thought I’d be over this phase, and luckily, the last couple of years I’ve found methods of clearing up my skin! I’ve tried each of these methods, and I can vouch that they work! Hope they come in handy. 💚

Prank

The jokes on you, as I jump out from the side. This can be a scary time, make sure to check your behind. I may hide in the bushes, or dress like a scary snowman. Maybe I’ll gift a whoopee cushion, or dress like a haunted program.

I may put a sheet over my head, and run out with a “boo!” I may even put a creepy mask over my face, and stand like a statue.

Lake, a body of water, surrounded by land. Prank, a body of humor, surrounded by grins.

It’s the kid in me, never growing up, and having some fun. Maybe one day it’ll happen, but for now, you better speedup and rrrrrrunnn!

Ain’t No Mountain High Enough

Let’s talk about self-love. Is it wrong to love yourself? How much love are you able to reward your soul? When does it become narcissism? Am I narcissistic? Maybe a little, I suppose.

I find it relieving to finally be able to say, nowadays, that I love the man in the mirror. My reflection and my protection. I love my common name, I love my height, and I definitely love the skin I’m in! If hate is yang, then I am yin.

Life isn’t easy sometimes, but is it for anyone? Probably not. We all have our own gun. We all have our own battles. It’s a blessing when you find the path to release your shackles. Being held down by a mental prison, with the “kicker” being, it was created by an inner mission. To keep yourself from getting hurt. To divert. Though, the hurt in not living, only does a revert.

How does one live if one isn’t living? The joke that keeps giving. It’s a little tired now. See you later, joke – ciao! Ain’t no mountain high enough, to keep me from loving myself. Time to bid the colorful antipathy, a longing farewell.
