  • Its a little better than I originally thought.

    I reviewed this before. But like with Regular Show, I decided to watch more of it to see if I maybe judged it too soon, and I did. So here is my re-review of Adventure Time.



    Adventure Time is about a boy and his magical, talking dog, who go on crazy adventures around the land of Ooo (I still think thats a dumb name). The show's plot sounded like a good one. Which is why I was kinda disappointed with the show itself for some of the stupid adventures Finn and Jake would go on. A good share of the episodes are good, but there were others that could be pretty random, and downright strange. However, the humor of the show makes up for it a bit in my opinion, even though a lot of it is inappropriate. Some of the slang the characters use though is a bit stupid (Shmow Zow? Really?).



    The main characters are pretty likable. Finn's a likable kid, though his hat is one of the stupidest things I've ever seen. Jake's a pretty cool sidekick with some interesting powers, and the fact that he's voiced by John DiMaggio makes him even better. Bubblegum and Marceline are both cool girls, but Ice King... should he even be considered the main antagonist? I don't know, with how often he'll get along with Finn and Jake, it's kinda debatable. Seriously, half the time they fight, then they'll turn around and act like the best of friends. Plus, he's not so much a threat, as a nuesence. But he's at least okay compared to Lemongrab, who I find annoying as hell!



    My biggest problem with Adventure Time is its art style. I'm sorry, but what kind of cheap, chicken-scratch art style is this?! It looks like it was drawn by a 4-year old. However, aside from that, the show's pretty okay. It has great voice acting and some pretty good action scenes. I have to admit it's a lot better than shit like Regular Show, Amazing World of Gumball and Johnny Test. However, I can't call it one of my favorite animated shows. Not by a longshot. Adventure Time is a tad overrated, but after watching it again, it's at least a little better than I thought. I'd still recommend it.moreless
  • This show was good, but now it's just going downhill.

    3.5
    I watched this show when it first aired and I loved it. Now, all that went to the bottom of the barrel. What remains now is the gross toilet humor it was saving us since season 5. I've never looked at Adventure Time the same way ever since season 5 was aired.

    Humor: it's just a combo of unfunny jokes, sex jokes and for the small part there is a fart joke, that isn't funny either. I remind the people behind this that this is a kid show, not South Park or something like that!

    Characters: poorly drawed, lack of color tonality and looks like it's drawn in MS Paint. Seriously.

    Plot: mostly focused on a stupid 11 (more like 5) year old kid named Finn that is a sad ***got with no parents and goes around with his unfunny dog Jake. Jake was pretty funny before season 5, but now he is just a plain jerk like everyone in the show. Finn used to be the funny guy about this show, now he only cares about making out with ladies. I mean, WTF Cartoon Network?

    Dialogue: just stupid, unfunny and lack of happy tonality( just try and listen to Finn when he speaks, he sounds like a sad fucker).

    I heard season 7 is coming, and I hope after that, this gets cancelled. I had enough of these horrible plots and sick humor. This show is( after Ninjago ) the most fucked up show on cartoon network.

    If you REALLY want to watch it, you better go look for the old ones on youtube.

    I bet the producers were smoking crack when they came up with the idea of putting in all that crap in what was a pretty cool show.

    And what is it with "Adventure" in the title? It sounds like it should be called "Crap Time!" or something like that.

    If you want to watch some good quality shows: a suggestion is Regular Show.



    EDIT 19/03/2015: What the fuck? I just saw an episode where jake steals a quote from Ocarina of Time!

    Now what? Are they stealing quotes just to make it look better? I'm taking away half a point because of CN's behaviour with Nintendo's quotes!moreless
  • Great, but needs to get happier

    9.5
    I absolutely love this show, but lately its gotten to be less happy and adventurous, which is kinda both sad and disappointing. They can still turn it around, but whatever they do next needs to have a different feel than season six.
  • ??eeeh?? Overrated.

    6.0
    Random quality plots confuse me. I never know what I am watching. Show confuses me. I guess its good to watch sometimes, but its basiaclly a show with episodes I never remember. It also has some kind of dark feeling when I watch it.



    I can't believe I got 15 dislikes. :(
  • Nothing but a teen drama with fart jokes sprinkled on top, with unfunniness being the icing to the cake.

    1.0
    This is the second worst show on the network, only to be beaten by Ninjago (Legends of Chima was originally number one before it's cancellation). Grojband was initially the worst but that show got cancelled and pulled off the network so I'm not counting that show anymore.



    I used to like this show but that was when I was much younger. I'm lots older now and I'm old enough to realize this show is nothing but an unfunny fart-festival for teens ages 16-19. I don't even see where they're trying to make jokes in this show besides fart jokes and gross out humor.



    I should say something about the animation. Oh lord, the animation. It looks very cheap. It's like the animators just wanted to get the animation over with and drew two dots and a line on the characters faces. It seems they were too lazy to animate noses.



    All the characters seem to be teens. The main character's a teen, the pink princess is a teen, the vampire is a teen, I think the only thing that's not a teen in this show is the dog. But he acts like one so maybe he's a teen too.



    The premise is really dumb. The protagonist has no parents and goes on adventures with a dog unaccompanied by an adult which is really dangerous. The whole premise of the candy kingdom is stupid.



    If these people want to have themselves a good show, they should see something like Regular Show. That show doesn't have any teen drama. If they want to do something like this, they should make it a children's show for Nick Jr. and give the protagonist parents. They shouldn't have bothered doing this.



    I heard the show is getting a seventh season. Hopefully that season is the last one because this show doesn't deserve to go on that long. It should have just stayed a pilot. The pilot doesn't rely on teen humor and it's not fart jokes. For some reason they made the show into a teen friendly show with fart jokes. The show would work for a children's cartoon, but not as a CN show for teens. Hopefully season 7 is the last season. I'm tired of some of the things CN's giving us.moreless
