Oberon and Titania Again

I finally got to see some episodes of Disney's Gargoyles I had wanted to see since I first read about them in rec.arts.sf.written. (People still remember the episodes today and comment on them when the appropriate thread comes up.) These are the episodes with Oberon and Titania. There are only three where they actuall appeared (if you count the two-parter as one), and I managed to miss one of them because of a schedule change on ABC family. :-P

The first one was Ill Met by Moonlight. With a title like that, you know it's gonna be good. ;-) Even better, it turned out that the episode was written by Diane Duane and Peter Morwood, and the story is by Michael Reaves!

I loved the actors used for Titania and Oberon. Kate Mulgrew as Titania -- talk about a kick-ass voice. There is a classic line where Titania says "In Avalon, Oberon's word is law." Someone then asks "Does that mean he is always right?" Titania replies, "Not while he's married." It's a great line already. Now imagine Kate Mulgrew saying that. Exactly! :)

And Terrence Mann does Oberon's voice so well that, as late as 2002, someone in rec.arts.sf.written was commenting on that voice -- something on how despite the civilized tone, you get the impression that "his sanity may only be skin deep." I love that description -- probably because it reminds me of some of the best characters I've read, and some of my own characters. (I can imagine Kensin with a voice like that, or perhaps Merik from the Mediator story.)

I have a Gargogyles desktop theme, and I ended up adding some Oberon and Titania wave files as desktop events. It is disconcerting to have Oberon casting a spell when a program crashes, although then again, it might explain a lot. :-P I also have a Puck wave or two.

BTW it goes without saying that Puck was great in the episode, too, and the ... big revelation ... in this episode was something else!
