    The show has a breezy quality that should play to kids, and tickle some twinges of nostalgia among their parents.

    A likable new Disney Channel cartoon series about twins spending a summer with their strange great-uncle in a weird little town in the Pacific Northwest.

It is the only reason I am going to be watching Disney Channel now. I can understand why a lot of adults might be a little upset though, because the premise of the show is geared more toward teenagers, but there are still a lot of kid friendly moments. It reminded me a lot of Foster's Hone For Imaginary Friends (which, the guy who created that is also helping with this) and that show was great also. The music, animation, humor, and plot are all top notch. Although it would probably do better on a network like Cartoon Network, Disney could do itself good with more of these shows. Expand

    I have noticed many of these reviews are from the past, so I am going to write a more accurate review of the current show. Warning you now,I have noticed many of these reviews are from the past, so I am going to write a more accurate review of the current show. Warning you now, the show has ended. So, if you're not into watching an finished show, you might as well stop reading this right now. Gravity Falls is the story of Dipper and Mabel: 12 year old twins, going to Gravity Falls, Oregon to spend the summer with their Grunkle (Great Uncle) Stan. Mabel is looking for summer fun and true love. She also joins Dipper on a quest to find the author of a mysterious journal he finds in the woods. At first, the show has a great sense of humor. Episodes never seemed to bore me (except maybe one in season 2, but thats not the point right now). As you head towards the end of season 1, you can really see the story starting to unravel. As the creator of the show once said, it is a show about family; never meant to last longer than 1 summer. Once in season 2, the comedy is still on point and the story really starts to get interesting. I will admit it, the some of the final episodes made me cry. If a CHILDREN'S CARTOON can make someone cry, you know its good (or I'm pathetic. But I know grown men who have cried during this and still do every time they re-watch it). With many twists and turns, the show has never failed to make me suprised about what happens next. Another important aspect of this show: the life lessons. Included but not limited to: its alright to not be perfect (mentioned multiple times!), strive to be someone worth loving, sometime it just wasn't meant to be and that is alright, etc etc etc! Next up, the villains. THE VILLAINS. THEY ARE AMAZING! Comedy, Evil Schemes, the whole nine yards! I recommend this show to anyone who loves laughs, good plot, or the cartoons Steven Universe, Over the Garden Wall, Star VS The Forces Of Evil, or the RPG Undertale. Expand

    Just the worst tv show out there, I'm giving this a 0/10 because i dislike these new cartoons that gets over-hyped.

    I think like this mostly because the new cartoons got these bad fan-bases that over-hype the series, just like Rick and Morty, Bojack Horseman and Adventure time.

    So in conclusion: this is one of the worst tv shows out there, don't watch it.
