Although I've downloaded the episode I still haven't seen it, but people over on the other threads all said that it's at least a 8/10. It's rare to see /co/ agree on it, so I'm more or less hyped for the episode
PPiM was fucking great.
they're production codes: they usually follow a specific pattern with storyboarders

not enjoying the intensity of ice kings psychedelic madness
>I say creepy is another label we use to distance ourselves from stuff we don't understand. Or that reminds us of something in ourselves that we're not comfortable with."
>"I mean. It just ain't an actual thing you know?"
Was Finn correct /co/?
Also was this good "2deep4u" or bad deepness?
Not to dampen the mood, but the way I see it:
>on a larger scale
Adventure Time isn't the new or big thing to be into right now. It's gone on so long that there really isn't much to hype up or discuss, and, for some, we've already seen it shoot itself in the foot in the past enough times that it's hard to get excited again. Not to say that it isn't still decent, or that it doesn't still have its fans, nor am I saying that I've lost interest, but it's completely understandable if the interest has died for some or has at least gotten some to put the show down in priority.
>On a smaller scale
Leaks. Already watched the episode before, and too busy to try to get a stream working or to move to the TV.
Was a great episode, though.
the big things for most people were (in chronological order) the increased focus on romance starting season 4, Rebecca Sugar leaving the show early season 5, what happened to the finn/flame princess subplot in season 5, the episode betty feeling rushed, finn getting his arm back really soon after he lost it, and the orgalorg plot.
Rebecca Sugar has always been really overrated as a writer imo. She makes good feely songs, but that's all. Most people whining about her departure are the same one who just look up for AT threads to tell people how much better SU supposedly is.
There's a less edgy reason to it actually. Cartoon Network started fucking up their schedule heavily last year, making things inconsistent and most notably killing of the prominent AT schedule. The hype went down as soon as it happened, with Steven Universe at the same time getting big and all the AT haters finally starting to fuck up every thread because muh status quo. Adventure Time still is very popular, but the hype calmed down for stated reasons. On a /co/ related note many people were also butthurt about Finn's breakup and as the hype went down many left the board because of the number of retards killing every thread.
This is what keeps me coming back to AT. Some episodes, like today's, have genuine artistry to them.
Trash pairing for trash people faggot
It's definitely better than most of Season5.2 and 6 combined that's for sure.
I'm an AT fag just like you can I can see lots of reasons why people would drop this show. Unless you mean dismissive as not seen one episode of season 7 but talks shit about it.
I'd say dismissing as in saying it hasn't been good for seasons. It's had a consistent level of quality for it's whole run, it's not like these great episodes this week are coming out of no man's land.
I don't give a shit about lore. I'm talking about sustenance. The acting is still flat and story progression is just plain weird. Season 1 + 2 Adventure Time could pack a bunch of shit into 10 minutes. Season 7 can barely pack in a late night pizza run and some random blind chicks with no payoff. There were NO JOKES.
literally horror writing theory. So he's correct, but it's a little unrealistic for a 16 year old kid to come to that conclusion, especially in the moment. Unless the enchiridion covered it, I guess.
nothing happened though, just within the episode itself. it was a largely uneventful buildup to the end which was kinda cool but not amazing or anything. if you think that episode wasn't sorely lacking in content, you probably do have battered wife syndrome.
The problem with sugar leaving isn't "wah a writer i liked left", it's that she was the only person with any idea what to do with flame princess. And I don't mean that as in she was the only person that could write an episode with FP in, I mean she was the only person that had a plan that lasted more than a single episode, there was an actual arc that was starting up. So when RS left, the plotline was left to wither and go shit under the direction of people who have to guess out the character an episode at a time.
It's actually just another example of what's wrong with the show as a whole - there's no consistent direction or directorial vision for a feel of the show, so it's just a fractured mess of one-off episodes that (sometimes) have some characters you've seen before.
>It's had a consistent level of quality for it's whole run
>it's that she was the only person with any idea what to do with flame princess
well, she created the character in the first place so I'm not surprised.
but if the other writers didn't like it, they shouldn't have let her start the arc by herself. clearly, absolutely nobody but her wanted Finn to have a girlfriend. which is hilarious considering how much hand-wringing this show does over relationships, but what are you gonna fucking do.
in general, she had a concept of how much work is involved in doing a character arc and was willing to put in that time. but noone else was ever going to work with her, so I can't say how much was really lost by her leaving. her main contribution imo was some amazing episodes in season 2.
f you think that episode was sorely lacking in content, I don't know how you even got into Adventure Time in the first place.
I laughed like 10 times. Anything past 5 is a nice bonus.
Well, I remember my face would fucking hurt from smiling after just a few episodes of season 1. Current episodes, it's a success if I'm not actively cringing. By that standard this one was ok.
[spoilers]Trying to stop it from making Simon crazy, obviously. Not sure where they're going to go with that whole plotline, since they and the fans love the Ice King character so much I don't think they're going to let him be cured, but they also can't just have her hanging around trying to cure him forever[/spoiler]
she changed its circuitry and it will probably slowly revert him back to simon.
however, doing so will inevitably cause great havoc so simon will sacrifice his being again, tell betty to go her own ways and become the ice king forever
Thought it was more weird/dumb than interesting, 6/10 I guess. Surprised so many people seemed to love it.
I was distracted by Seo and Somvi's awkward facial expressions and character movements throughout the entire episode, which is really weird because Angel Face had none of those things.
It was also very odd how Finn and Jake were so freaked out by this shit when they've seen ghosts a bunch of times before in the show and didn't bat an eye but now they're super freaking out because the plot requires them to be. Lazy lazy.
Climax was kind of dumb too but eh.
There were some alright moments though, I loved the part where the girls were just multiplying from the woodwork and when Finn explained what tulpas were.
So 6/10 I guess from me. Butt stuff was the best part.
Finn's not too dumb, so I don't know. I thought it could work.
Sometimes the show has him say stuff that I feel is way ooc (like most of Astral Plane with him BSing the whole episode about birth and shit) but this seemed to fit him better, I feel.
Maybe they were both ooc but I thought the one from Blank Eyed Girl worked better.
You've never? It's amazing, you get all the toppings, sauce, and cheese on your tongue first. Non of that diluted shit as it gets mixed with chewed crust and then hits your tongue. Its maximum flavor.
Yeah, they were even less active than ghosts usually are in this show.
All Finn and Jake did was hear about it on Startchy's radio shpw and they get terrified. The girl didn't even do anything scary in that story the Banana Guard told.
Episode did a really poor job at giving any reason that Finn and Jake would be afraid.
Am I the only one that was annoyed when Jake was actually able to play the clarinet on his shapeshifted one?
His powers don't work that way, that's why when he does stuff like try to turn into a sword it's not sharp, it's still made out of squishy dog flesh no matter what shape it's in.
That wasn't an actual instrument and it was dumb that it actually played music like that instead of just having Jake blow air through a tube.
This is a minor nitpick but still.
aw fuck let's just use this one
>written/storyboarded/directed by Kirsten Lepore
>Kevin Michael Richardson
Shit, I'm getting tired of this guy's 3 voices.
It's like he's taking up all the VO roles in the fucking industry.
That was kind of.... something I guess.
As a guest animation episode I think it failed in its duties, didn't do anything interesting with stop motion aside from the storm, I guess. Really could have done more in that aspect.
Seems like poor payoff for a year of work but stop motion does take a retarded amount of effort so I can't blame em.
As a regular episode I think it was alright, though it did have a pretty weird conflict resolution. I guess that's not a new thing for this show though.
Even so, was kind of dull. Needed more things happening, and I don't think there were many jokes in it.
Despite all that, I kind of liked it but think it could have been better. Think 6/10 is a fair mark for it.
I was pretty surprised that LSP actually put effort into building the bunker.
You should've been here in 2011, man
Because it's not a thread for a new episode, it's a thread for an episode that's already aired.
If a new thread was made, there'd be at least 10 people or something, but if there isn't a new thread, there's no spontaneity or fun in posting in an old one.
Yep. Even despite myself, I just watched the King's Ransom episode that's going to air tomorrow.
At the least it should be a fun episode for the people who saved themselves.
What the fuck is she saying
Anyone else just enjoying how chill AT threads have become?
Really been liking this season. And the discussion in these threads are good. Thread isn't as fast as those for more fresh shows. But I like it this way.
wise words indeed
Eh, there's chill and then there's vacant. Would be nice if some more people were around though I understand their disinterest.
I think people are being a little too full of praise for it after the shitshow that was 6, but season 7's pretty alright. Some good episodes.
No, barring threads that are only really about posting stufflike >>78994558 or threads like >>78921472, they're pretty much are.
And even the latter is relatively dead.
When that blank eye girl licked Jake's hand I burst out laughing.
This show hasn't done that in a while.
