Could have SWORN there was an Adventure Time topic before this...
Anyway, WHAT TIME IS IT?!
A show about Finn the human boy and his best friend and bro, Jake the (magic) dog, going on adventures, having fun times, with supporting cast including including the smart and sassy Princess Bubblegum, the lovely Lady Rainicorn, the sociopathic princess-nabber Ice King, the cute little computer pet thing BMO, the amoral chaotic Marceline the Vampire Queen, and of course, everyone's favorite, the Lumpy Space Princess.
So yeah, awesome show, funny stuff, and the season 3 finale just premiered a few days ago, with season 4 right around the corner...
You know, I just want to take the time to talk about what I thought about the finale, because it sort of helps support why this is a good show.
So basically, Finn is all mopey and emo because he feels that for as much as he loves Princess Bubblegum, the fact that she's older than him and just not interested is really getting to him. Jake decides to find him another girl his age, when
Flambo, a recurring character, introduces him to the Flame King and Flame Princess. In trying to convince the Flame King to let Flame Princess give Finn a chance, he realizes that Flame Princess is actually EVIL, and goes on a rampage when Jake disguised as Finn, tries to tell her he's no longer interested.
Really, the only game-changing, shocking twist to this season finale is what happened at the very end, as in, the LITERAL last line spoken before it cuts to a commercial. It goes by so fast that the fact that the one line is even said might not register completely and it takes you aback simply for that.
The big one-line?
Finn: "I think I might have a crush". ...ON SOMEONE WHO ISN'T PRINCESS BUBBLEGUM!
...Personally, I see this as more open-ended then others might. After all, he COULD be referring to the fact that there's someone who actually has the "hots" for him (sorry for the pun). Either way, I think I can see Flame Princess being a major player in the next season, and the fact that she's said to be outright evil will put a nice love triangle on Finn's old love for Princess Bubblegum, and he resolve to fight all things evil.
THAT'S awesome, and THAT'S why I love this show, because despite it's weird setting, outrageous creatures, non-sequitor one-liners, and outright BIZARRE plotlines, it's STILL a well-written show with a lot of thought and character development put into it!
Also, I freaking love the Ice King. Freaking hystarical, that guy is!
