Adventure Time Season 1-The Rest of It

What a weird journey this has been. A weird, wonderful, terrifying journey. This show's subversive darkness has persisted through the series, hiding in the cracks and crevices, and lurking beneath the bright and cheerful colours of the show.

It's a show a kid could watch, and they would never understand this terrible darkness that rests beneath the surface.

And I enjoy it, to an extent. It definitely got much easier to grasp as the series progressed, although some of the bizarre inconsistencies (don't they have a cure for death? Didn't tree trunks die?) don't line up with the consistencies (Jake is afraid of vampires). So which is which? Are you creating a series in which every episode follows the previous, or are you creating a show that is purely episodic?

Beyond that, the animation is certainly unique and interesting, and the idea is definitely creative.

Once I can track down season two, I'll be sure to check it out.
