The Owl House Delights

When I’m feeling down, one show that never fails to bring me comfort is The Owl House. The Owl House is about a teenage girl named Luz Noceda who finds herself transported into the Boiling Isles, a magical world filled with witches and demons. Being a lover of fantasy stories, Luz jumps at the opportunity to become a witch, just like she’s always dreamed. She meets a woman named Eda the Owl Lady, the most powerful witch in the Boiling Isles, who becomes her surrogate mother for her time in this other world.


One reason why The Owl House gives me so much comfort is because Luz’s problems feel realistic and I can relate them to my own. From her struggles with ADHD to her desire to be something greater than herself, I can really relate to her as a character, and seeing her overcome her problems and come out on the other side gives me a sense of hope. Another aspect of The Owl House that contributes to my enjoyment is the LGBTQ representation on the show. Luz is a bisexual character, which feels very calming to see as a bisexual girl myself. It isn’t a sort of representation seen on TV often in such a positive and casual manner, so to see it on The Owl House helps make me feel calm.


The Owl House is a beautiful show about found family and finding yourself, and I would recommend it to anyone who’s a fan of animation. From the gorgeous backgrounds and magic, to the writing, and even the voice acting, with big names such as Mae Whitman contributing to this show, it is the perfect storm of everything to be my comfort show. I truly love The Owl House, and despite it coming to an end, I hope many others will be able to enjoy it the same way I have in the future.
