    What is Gravity Falls?

    It's the brainchild of Flapjack writer Alex Hirsch and Disney Channel's newest cartoon.
    Gravity Falls takes a brand of irreverent humor enjoyable by people of all ages, made popular by shows like Flapjack, Adventure Time, and Regular Show, and combines it with a heavy dose of conspiracy theories, paranormal themes, and mystery like one would find in Twin Peaks, The X-Files, or Courage the Cowardly Dog.
    The content is considerably more risque than typical Disney Channel fare. Characters refer to death and murder without beating around the bush, and there are legitimately scary moments and on-screen deaths.
    It features likable, relatable characters, it's cute, but not saccharine, and it has a lot of hidden elements, from subtle foreshadowing to secret codes.

    This is......

    The only good disney channel show I might acutally consider watching.
    I was wondering where your avi and sig came from ever since I saw it, MC.

    The show has such a good animation instead of the those mini-stuttering kinds.
    Don't get me wrong though, Phineas and Ferb is a good show as well.

    Edit--

    And to be clear, only episode 1 is free on iTunes.

    good luck with that.

    anyways, gonna drop a pastebin link in the OP. or you can head to /co/ and get all the episodes and read the most epic of flamewars(theres almost always a GF topic active on the front page). Disney even has the episode on their site last i checked.

    Nope, no download links. If they are free from an official source, then people should go to the official source.

    Anyway, holy **** the fps on this show. They've put a lot of work into this.

    Show does sem rather interesting. Watched a few promos. Love the intro music. Glad to see another quality animated show on Disney. I think Phineas and Ferb were getting a bit lonely.

    Smashboards wouldn't have a thread for this fantastic Gravity Falls show.

    In fact, I'm so confident there's no thread that I'm going to take a nice, long sip of my coffee.

    Oh, and allegedly, the fourth episode has already been leaked. I've heard little about it, though, except for message in the credits.

    EDIT: The second episode can be streamed from Disney Channel's website.

    Watched a random episode today this morning. Interesting premise.

    I have only watched this episode, but from what I've gathered so far...I don't find the main characters minus the boy very likable. However, the side characters are rather hilarious. Also, big points to incorporating

    I found episode 2 to be a good start on liking the main characters(episode one is ok for the introductory of them, but their dialouge together in episode 2 was great.)

    i have high hopes for this show o3o.

    Watched the episode with the murder of a life-sized wax replica (well, I decided to give it a gander when I saw my sister watching it). Clever humor, but I don't see myself going anywhere with it, personally. To me, it resembles Adventure Time a smidgen. That isn't the reason I don't find it too appealing, but that pops out at me the most.:applejack:

    Seems to possess potential, I'll say that much.

    Well, it does bear mentioning that the show's creator, Alex Hirsch, used to write for Flapjack and is friends with J.G. Quintel, the creator of Regular Show.

    I'm not really getting the Adventure Time vibes from this, though. This world seems more based in reality and established urban legends and less in surrealism for the sake of surrealism.

    Looks like I just had to give it more than one episode, to think I'd comprehend that by now. It's pretty engrossing, I suppose it was some of the "Disney humor" that made it seem mediocre to me on my first episode. I dislike Disney. A lot. I'll watch the show, but I don't expect to be an active fan or anything.:applejack:

    I like Mabel's quirkiness, and, if she's anything like I'm guessing (through further expounding of her character in later episodes), then I can say I like her the most.

    Oh, and I love you, Ed. <3

    I watched one episode of the show, it was good. I like Mabel's spirit, she's kinda like me, except I don't like a lot of people.

    Not exactly like her. The only thing me and her have in common that we're both nice, except I girls and swimming. She likes, what likes, I don't know.

    Last night's episode was not that good.

    There were some good laughs, though, like most of Grunkle Stan's scenes, and

    Oh, and the fifth episode has already leaked. Yeesh, Disney, try to fix those pipes of yours.

    Judging by some comments on youtube, some people believe it's connected to the Illuminati and refuse to watch it.

    Yeah, I'd this week's episode and next week's episode, which has been leaked already, are two of the show's best.
