My Gargoyles season 1 two-disc set arrived the other day, and I’ve already watched all the episodes plus the commentary on the first five. Good stuff.
Gargoyles is still one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. Watching it again really took me back to my life as a teenager, though. The commentaries especially reminded me how much time has passed, and what things were like for me in 1994.
Sometimes I wonder if nostalgia is wanting things to be the way they used to be, or wanting yourself to be the way you used to be. Either way, it’s wistfulness over an impossible dream…but it can be such a poignant feeling.
