I’ve recently been really into Adventure Time, originally because of the simplistic character designs, quirky animation and pop culture but since my little brother have been DVR-ing more than 70 episodes a week, I’ve fallen in love with it. I thought it was just going to be Cartoon Networks tendency to overuse pointless plots but this show seriously depresses me. I watch each episode hoping to learn something about side characters like Treetrunks or how Finn is the only human in Ooo, but instead I get all of these cold hard facts about relationships (romantic and not) wrapped in the façade of a children’s cartoon and I don’t know how to deal with the reality of it. I can only hope that the target audiences’ heads don’t explode with the concepts Adventure Time throws at them constantly.”
And that is why I don’t watch adventure time.
