So I get the appeal of the show and I love that this indy cartoon is garnering success... but I'm 5 episodes in and it's not doing much for me. On the other hand I just watched the only 4 episodes of Gravity Fall and I'm completely smitten with delight (Thanks Nissl!). Can someone tell me when the show hits its stride?
But my friends tell me Adventure Time gets better at some point.
Adventure Time does nothing for me. No idea why.
I'm not a fan of the show, but I get why people like it. Still, you can't credibly claim that it has awesome animation.
Disney in the era of Snow White is awesome animation. Hand drawn and absolutely stunningly true to life. That's the scale on which you're competing.
"In Adventure Time, it is a known fact that Finn and Jake live on a post-apocalyptic earth. There was a nuclear war that mutated all the species on earth and destroyed all of human civilization. There are anthropomorphic foods/animals, lumpy floating space aliens, sorcerers, superpowers, and other things that came from all the radiation. In Regular Show, Mordecai and Rigby inhabit a universe of humans but ALSO many anthropomorphic animals/objects (not to mention the GREEN Muscleman, Highfive Ghost).
There are also extremely insane occurrences each episode that involve monsters, black-holes, and other weird shit that could be focused radiation. In addition to this, on Regular Show there is a strange mish-mash of digital and analog technology that semi-matches up with Adventure Time. After the nuclear war, I assume there was a move to go back with technology instead of forward which would explain the strange stuff. And last but not least, Pops and his father are CANDY PEOPLE. In a short that JG Quintel did before Regular Show it was established that Pops was from another kingdom, so it could be the beginnings of the candy kingdom."
also for fans of the awesome animation the artist's tumblr has some interesting work on it
I don't watch these kinds of cartoons for drama or interesting relationships. I don't get caught up in the struggles of cartoon ponies, or the character growth of Batman, or understanding the mind of a talking badger. I just can't do it. I watch cartoons to escape into something novel, carefree, clever, and fun to look at. Adventure Time scratches that itch. Plus the most recent season finale was an elaborate Call of Cthulhu homage. That made me happy.
I can't get past that steam iron without dying of laughter.
Are you really this intensely interested in semantics, or don't you have anything more interesting to talk about, like, ever?
And step up your insulting if you go that way. That one is just pathetic.
Loud? That's interesting.
And yes I'm at work, are you jealous?
3. Also called feature film . the main motion picture in a movie program:
So I used it wrong, which I acknowledged already. The ongoing derailment is not really that interesting, is it?
Obviously, it is. :-)
