Defenders of the Lite, 17 March 2004
Author: Spider-Lou from Bristol, CT

Many were saddened when the phenomenal "Gargoyles" ended, but in fact the tale was continued in "The Goliath Chronicles." Picking up from where Hunter's Moon left off, it dealt with the ramifications of the now publicized Gargoyles. The 13 episodes, produced by Nelvana and aired by ABC, were indeed inferior to the original in animation and scripts, but ultimately it was really not bad.

The faults of "G:TGC" were not only the weak animation but also the lack of the original's sweeping, fantastic, and compelling elements. "Gargoyles" co-creator Greg Weisman had expressed regret in not continuing supervision after penning the first ep The Journey. Maybe his vision was what this show missed.

It introduced a new anti-Gargoyle enemy, the Quarrymen. It also could have developed the potential romantic relationship between Detective Elisa Maza and Goliath. However, those plot points were not explored very much, for there were but 13 episodes, of which a significant percentage were isolated stories. As a result, when the Gargoyles were accepted in the final episode Angels in the Night, it was a too abrupt resolution/conclusion! Goliath's narratives were a good concept, but lots of them hadn't matched the plot.

At least the entire mega-talented voice cast returned for this show, most notably Keith David as Goliath. Also, it did stay in continuity with the original. And the best animated episode was Seeing Isn't Believing. I found "G:TGC" to be a quite entertaining companion/continuation of the original, and at least we had our favorite characters on screen for a little while longer.
