As somebody who casually enjoys Regular Show and simply can't see in Adventure Time what everyone else seems to, it's nice to finally have a 'made for kids, can be equally enjoyed by adults' animated program to call my own. This show is an absolute blast, doing a great job building up a lot of mystery and deep backstory in only ten episodes. It's funny, there's a lot of heart thrown in, and the supernatural 'monster of the week' element is a nice added bonus. While it doesn't have nearly as many innuendos as RS and AT do, I still see this show as a testament of how animation really is stronger than ever these days. It's created by Alex Hirsch, a writer from Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, and contains a great voice cast; Kristen Schaal (having trouble NOT hearing Louise, though), Jason Ritter, and Linda Cardellini all star, and there's recurring roles from TJ Miller, John DiMaggio, Gregg Turkington, and Stephen Root. anyone. Shouldn't be too tough a sell on many of you.
"What's the number one problem with most monster hunts?"
"If you're a side character, you die in the first 5 minutes of the movie. Dude, am I a side character?! Do you guys ever think about stuff like that?"
Oh god, I think I love this show right here. There are so many great one-liners.
That whole scene is golden, from the camera throwing to the captain/co-captain talk. Really glad you're into it, I figured this would be your type of thing. I really hope this finds a following similar to RS and AD, it certainly deserves it. I just worry at times that it being on Disney Channel might make people hesitant of putting time into it.
Immediately following what was easily one of the best episodes of the season (Creggy G eating and immediately choking on the tape dispenser was the biggest laugh I've ever gotten from the show), the announcement comes out that there will be no new episodes of this in May. Fuck everything.
