    Surreal, funny, subversive, philosophical, all in eleven compact minutes! If you're new to the show, there are plenty to amuse you, but if youSurreal, funny, subversive, philosophical, all in eleven compact minutes! If you're new to the show, there are plenty to amuse you, but if you have been with the show for a season or more, every scene has a layer of importance and meaning. Since it's animated and set in the future, the creators have basically given themselves a very epic, very wide canvas to play in. Magic, science fiction, environmentalism, politics, racism, horror, comedy, they've tried all that and they have the potential to explore even more topics. Expand

    This show is just starting to hit its stride. Overarching story lines, insane situations, hidden adult humor that is not crude in conjunctionThis show is just starting to hit its stride. Overarching story lines, insane situations, hidden adult humor that is not crude in conjunction with the innocent humor is appreciated as well. Not really for kids, rather teens and up. This series is only going to become more epic with time as well considering that Finn ages in conjunction with his voice actor. Cannot express how great this show is, just take a peek at a few episodes to get acquainted. Pick some from mid to late season one then go back to the beginning and enjoy. A real treat for the open-minded. Expand

    Seriously? I'm surprised, from appropriate to inappropriate, cartoon network changed the style of their cartoons, from appropriate toSeriously? I'm surprised, from appropriate to inappropriate, cartoon network changed the style of their cartoons, from appropriate to inappropriate, that's what they've done, if you just keep looking at the walls of the house, you will see something totally inappropriate, even for kids under 15, hidden adult jokes, but not alot, afterall good, and I would just ignore those stuff.

    Childhood is a strange thing. You think about stuff that slowly becomes less and less surreal as you age. Unicorns, Easter Bunny, fairy tales,Childhood is a strange thing. You think about stuff that slowly becomes less and less surreal as you age. Unicorns, Easter Bunny, fairy tales, and much more. So Cartoon Network decided to dig deep into this whole "childhood imagination" thing, and came up with Adventure Time. If you've heard about the show by now, your thoughts about it should be positive. Even before the show aired, it gained popularity via it's ads and creative art style. If you've heard about this show on the ads, wikipedia, or your friends, they're all right about the show on how they describe it. It's all in the ads people. What you see is what you get in Adventure Time. For starters, Adventure Time takes place in the magical land of ooo, where all types of creatures roam the earth after a nuclear bomb hit. The show revovles around Finn, a 12 yaer old human boy, and Jake, a magical dog with stretchy arms. The design of these two characters are fun, colorful and cheery, just as everything else is in the land of ooo. Finn and Jake claim to be heroes whoose job is to protect ooo and it's people, especialy princess bubblegum. Why is there always a princess in these types of shows? heh...Bubblegum is constantly stalked by the Ice King, whom is desperatley looking for a wife; kidnapping princessess and finding which one workd best for him. It's a bit weird, but it works. Finn and Jake won't always be protecting Bubblegum. They go far beyond that, and the result is rather entertaining compared to imagination/adventure cartoon rejects such as the likes of Chowder and Flapjack. EWverything from vampires, alein babies, castle raiding and so much more is present throughout Finn and Jake's Adventures. Fun. That's the perfect wrd to describe it all. The whole idea is just simply fun, no matter how stupid and simple the plot of each episode may be. The whole idea of "Adventure" in the show is a complete gimmick. Sure, Finn and Jake get into some pretty sweet situations, but it's all flawed by one thing: fights. Due to the length of each episode being only 15 minutes, fights are short and boring. Finn and Jake always end up beating an enemy in on quick blow. It's all so short and dissapointing. In one episode, Finn finds a monster in some sort of dimensional test for a book, or somthing. he has to fight an evil monster to past the first part of the test. Finn jumps on the monster and explodes him in 4-6 quick punches. There was absolutely no excitment in that, and almost seemed pathetic. nad in another episode, Finn attempts to fight a vampire, whom has gone through a hideous transformation. He punches the vampire once in the face, and the vampire just gives up because the punch actualy hurt her and she had her fun. BORING! All of this has to be flawed by each of the episodes length. Each episode clocks in around 11 minutes minus commercilas, and it just feels like CN just didn't have enough time. If the show were split up into 30 minute segments, everything would have worked out magnificantly. But no. The show's humor mostly consits of casual laid back humor at times, while at other times the show uses the American classic: the fart jokes. Jokes never become LOL funny, but some do manage to grab an occasional chukle once in a while. Sometimes you just stare at the screen and say "really?" at what Finn has just considered a joke. This is especialy present in season 2, where the show veers off into mediocre nonsense. Season 3 and 4 are a blst though. It provides for some exciting moments, like Princess Bubblegum and Finn's relationship growing, but still, this is flawed down by a cheesy romance and pittiful battle seqences. YAWN. The music in the show is pretty fun, just like the show in general, and thakes us back to the good old days of Gamboy color where music sounded like electronic drips of water. That's exactly what you'll hear in Adventure Time. There's really not a lot you can say about voice acting. It's all done well, and it's exactly what you expect in a cartoon. Younger ones will find themselves reapeating the lines of the show to their friends countless times. Adventure Time is the best cartoon CN has come out with in a long time. The music is catchy, the setting is imaginative, but most importantly, it's fun and irrististable. My only real complaints are the fights, length, cheesy plots and (wait for it) Finn and Bubblegum's romance. It has got to be the most irritating thing I've ever heard. Who fals in love with a wad of bubblegum? It's all complete nonsense. But that won't keep the show down. It's great, and you should definetly give it a shot. If you don't like the show, whatever. Although I'm a little confused as to why. Adventure Time gets an 8 out of 10. Expand
