Most developments this season after Battle for Mewni feel like a good thing in concept but are just done really poorly in the end:>Move to Mewni so we get to see more of Star's world, maybe learn more about the universe and get more lore
We've barely learned anything new; 2 and even 1 felt like they accomplished more re: worldbuilding in a similar number of episodes.>Marco becomes a squire; maybe he'll figure into the plot more and get more meaningful development
He's just Star's bitchboy, not even a real squire, and their relationship is exactly the same, just with a creepy dom/sub element where she regularly invokes him being a squire to make him do shit for her.>Tom is showing up more; maybe we'll actually see what she saw in him and how their relationship would work
LOL OFFSCREEN'D>Kelly's showing up more, maybe she'll be a cool character?
Literally exists just to hop on Marco's dick>The plot about monster equality everyone expected since S1 is happening, maybe--
OFFSCREEN>Well, Eclipsa's cool, right?
Yeah, but the mystery they're drawing out about her feels like it's taking forever>At least nearly every episode progresses the plot in some way
But also focuses on things that feel more pointless than previous filler episodes. It's the worst of both worlds: the antics aren't entertaining, the plot advancement feels like nothing
It feels like everything this season is mired in a much less interesting status quo, except the shipping, which has taken over the whole thing (this wasn't true for 2 at all). Even Monster Bash might actually be the worst full episode so far.
