Title: Adventure Time with Finn and Jake.
Post by: Kaizer on April 05, 2010, 06:24:44 pm
Premiered on CN today, anybody else check it out?


I liked it, reminded me of Invader Zim and some other old school Cartoons


also I found it funny that Pendleton Ward's(the creator of the show)Official Site is this: http://www.buenothebear.com/

While it's not as good as I expected it to be, Adventure Time is by far one of my favorite CN shows currently on the air. (RIP Dexter's Lab, Powerpuff Girls, Johnny Bravo, Toonami, etc :'( ) Fans of Pendleton Ward's work (Flapjack, various shorts) should definitely watch it. I've heard people around my school who like Adventure Time, but as far as I know, I'm the only one I know personally who knew about the Adventure Time short that aired on Nick way back when before the CN show.

I didn't think I'd like Adventure Time. I put off watching it for a long time. Then I watched Evicted and was hooked. Show's pretty awesome.

Yes, if you don't mind paying (or, barring that, letting Megavideo grab you by the spheres...)

Why aren't we all watching this all the time and talking about it?

Watch it all, now.  (http://www.watchcartoononline.com/anime/adventure-time)
(might not work anymore)
So anyway, anyone else feeling for the Ice King ever since Holly Jolly? That was so crazy with the tapes.

I like the setting alot it's very tragic and interesting. Jake is the best character right behind LSP, and FinnxPB 4ver.

I just saw the episode with Ice King and the tapes, and even after hearing a few things about the episode I can say I was not expecting that. Wow.
Title: Re: Adventure Time with Finn and Jake.
Post by: Inkling on January 21, 2012, 08:58:25 pm
By the way, those links to the episodes don't work anymore...
Title: Re: Adventure Time with Finn and Jake.
Post by: eropS on January 24, 2012, 07:13:02 pm
I know. I'm super sad. Hope you guys all saw most of them at least haha.

And Metallic, wasn't it crazy? I am still confused if the Ice King knows it was him on the tapes or if he is too far gone. I also wonder if 'Doctor Princess' isn't the same girl from the tapes.

Waaah, now I have to catch it on tv sometime before I know what you're talking about.

Every episode is on youtube. Just use wikipedia to find out the name of the episode and type it in to google, and look for the video ~11 minutes long.

Hey, I forgot we had this thread.  We should talk about this show more often.  Because holy stuff, that last episode.
Title: Re: Adventure Time with Finn and Jake.

I've been watching through it recently.

So far I'm up to 2-19 and going steadily.

NOPE still waiting for season 4 to end so I can marathon it.


But I'm a huge hypocrite, because I download Gravity Falls episodes as soon as I can get them. Let's talk about Gra- oh hey there's a thread already.

Post by: eropS on August 24, 2012, 04:20:36 pm
I think the Magic Man episode(s) are the best.

He gets Jake executed guys. What. The. Math.

Also, last episode. The borderline rapish stuff was a bit much haha. The end was awesome though.

The last two episodes of Season 4. I've said it before and I'll keep saying it: This show is pure genius.
Title: Re: Adventure Time with Finn and Jake.

Well, Remember Me was soul crushing; what was the redeeming quality of that episode? There wasn't even a tiny inkling given that Ice King can get his memory back in the episode.

I mean perhaps children won't fully understand the implication but to me that episode was truly sad. The following episode was also interesting; I honestly have no idea what's going to come from it which is neat.

Except that when he digs out that book he says it's still wet with tears.  Which implies he remembers sometimes, then forgets again.  Or that room in his castle is too warm and melts a bit.
Title: Re: Adventure Time with Finn and Jake.
Post by: eropS on November 04, 2012, 06:54:50 pm
I thought it was wet with tears because the story it contains is so sad the Ice King cries for the writer/story; not knowing it was he who wrote it.
Title: Re: Adventure Time with Finn and Jake.
Post by: Neoadept on November 04, 2012, 07:19:11 pm
Sometimes, soul crushing is good.  It shows a depth of character that's rarely seen in any television, let alone a cartoon.  It makes the world bigger.

And, towards the end, just for a moment, he seems just a touch saddened by the lyrics.  Is it remembering?  No.  But it is hope.

Besides which...

That looks like Simon to me.  They follow THAT sadfest with an episode with extensive exposition on time travel and you don't think we'll get to see more of his past?

You, sir, are a silly billy.
Title: Re: Adventure Time with Finn and Jake.
Post by: eropS on November 04, 2012, 10:37:10 pm
I realize that we'll get to see happy times ahead, it is a cartoon after-all.

And it's not like I'm saying Remember Me was a bad episode either, I understand that it was good and I know why it was good; I find most to be enjoyable but again as I said Remember Me as an episode was just a bummer is all.

The puppies were cool and all but the episode was a little weak with its pacing and how it tied up finn and jake at the very end. It,  was ok.
Title: Re: Adventure Time with Finn and Jake.
Post by: PatMan33 on January 08, 2013, 08:59:10 pm
Yeah it was light on story. More of a fanservice episode.

And what was up with the pickle that had Down Syndrome? They kept calling it "Jake Jr."
Title: Re: Adventure Time with Finn and Jake.
Post by: /lurk on January 08, 2013, 10:54:01 pm
Just because Jake Jr. was born without a face doesn't mean she can't be a strong independent black woman who don't need no man.

I guess she can hang out with Cake and Lord Monochromicorn.

Eh I thought they'd all be messed up from when she got tied into a knot by the heart.

I actually haven't seen this show since Flame Princess started showing up.

What's a Betty? Is that Bubblegum's OG form?
