Adventure Time is back and coming your way once again with a week of brand new premieres! C'mon grab your friends and join us for the ride!
Tonight's episode: King's Ransom
Tonight at 7:30PM Eastern/6:30PM Pacific
Adventure Time got leaked, so livethread's probably dead, FOP wasn't leaked, is a season premier, and has fans that should be neat to watch.
She fucked around with his crown with her magical scientific mind and shit and now I guess it's gonna slowly turn him younger.
Look's like everyone's gonna get a happy end except Finn.
>Betty modified the crown with Gunther's Orgalorg powers
I'm still shocked how these threads have died.
To me it just seemed like the writers made some shit choices post flame princess.
But to think that all of those fans filling up those threads are gone forever.
I feel old.
I know that, but where did anon get the Orgalorg part? Wasn't the ransom just part of her plan to get the crown?
There's a reflection of Orgalorg in Gunther's eyes
LOOK'S like, anon.
Jake and Lady are happily bf and gf with kids
Marcy and PB are gonna scissor when Finn deds
FP taking the Cinnamon dick
Mr Pig and Tree trunks are getting along
even the Lich has a loving family
It's all over for that beta straight white male. The fucker shouldn't have gotten his dick hard in the first place. All he does now is spout "words of wisdom" like he has any insight on life.
Oh I didn't see that. Thanks lads
>tfw all the AT threads this for this glorious week's bounty of Adventure have been dead as fuck because of the leaks
How does this always happen..
Don't be so dramatic. He's honestly kind of right, these threads are honestly kind of dead, a lot of bad choices were made with and after Flame Princess, and it is kind of a downer that it isn't as big as it was.
Even if you acknowledge the leaks, there's still the fact that there aren't that many people showing up to watch it.
I definitely understand your argument, but the few times there weren't any episodes leaked in S7 the talkback threads were much more active. Also people made them an hour or two before the airing, not 30 seconds before.
Just watched, it was pretty good. Some actually good jokes, nice character interaction, good use of Jake's powers for the first time in a while, and actual story progression.
The fuck was up with Betty's voice though? It's like she was using a voice changer but that was never shown. Was weird.
Also not sure why Jake was crying, he's never given a shit about Ice King or Gunther so I think him getting all emotional over them doesn't really fit.
That aside it was good, and the title card's fucking amazing, probably the best of season 7 so far.
It seems really damn late for them to worry about that now, and if they were gonna change the VA I don't know why they would give her a gravelly deep voice instead of just getting another woman to voice her.
I don't think that's what happened.
at least the departure of the VA fits in with Betty's transformation
perhaps it's part of the magic powers. I felt like her new voice was very similar to Magic Man's
I don't think it's so much bad choices, as bad COMBINATIONS of choices made by different parts of the team at different times
it's the kind of thing that happens in politics a lot. two different groups will spend the same money in different ways, neither of which would be that bad on its own.
with AT we end up feeling we've been jerked around
People don't have a reason to watch anymore after they rolled Finn into a pigsty and left him there to rot. No amount of fan pandering on TV can compete with limiters speculative writing ad art on the Internet and the writers won't commit to any changes to the status quo. Do you seriously think at this moment in time that there's a plan on how the show's going to close out? The only people who knew what they were doing left a while ago.
here are the links to the ep from madridista's blog, since no one's posted them yet
>I know you probably know it and you're just writing this to troll, but the episodes have leaked almost a week ago and AT fans are fags who just had to rush out and spoil it for everyone else
>We will never see Betty stick stones into loli Marcelines Vagina.
>We will never have Betty bribe Loli Marceline with cookies so she will let her masturbate her.
It's hard to have hype for a show when the creative lead dropped the show years ago, the one-off comedy has been weak for ages, and only about 1/4 of the storyboarders have any interest in driving the scattered remnants of the plot and/or character development forward while the other 3/4 casually fuck it up.
I came out of the woodwork to see how the newbie storyboarders are working out. I get the feeling Wolfhard/Herpich trained them.
For just a moment, it's almost like nothing ever went wrong. Then comes Xayaphone.
Damn that was actually a little return to form
I quite liked the new one with the blank-eyed girl.
Maybe not as ominous as some of the episodes they've done in the past but I got some laughs out of it.
Except Finn is a California alpha male stereotype, since he got tons during Breezy, does a lot of shit, is admired, but deep down is just a dumb kid who spouts too much pseudo philosophy because he never bothered to learn anything
>MUH FLAME PRINCESS
Its been fucking three years and you retards are still salty about this especially when FP hasn't even been the focus for such a long ass time now. How the fuck do you function if you let a few episodes you didn't like make you give up on a show forever unless you really didn't like it to begin with.
You do realize you're projecting, right?
It's not about Flame Princess, it's about how it's handled, and how the same thing happens with so much in the show.
To be fair, there's a lot of bad plotlines that popped up as a direct result of that episode, or at least in conjunction with that episode.
That said, I agree that people need to stop harping on it. Season six was pretty fun, and seven is shaping up to be a true return to form. The staff have made slow but steady progress in bringing the show out of the ditch S5 put it in.
Its not projection when everything he says is right.
It is about FP because the relationship is frequently brought up to criticize the show because that's the only argument detractors use. How that transpired really has nothing to do with the quality of the show and the people who let that bothered them to the point of dropping it were never real fans to begin with.
I get that people don't like that Finn regressed during that period but it didn't make the show unwatchable for me and honestly FP was always a weak character that Sugar created and pushed on a whim like she always does.
I really do think people seem to believe one or two bad episodes can instantly kill a show which is ridiculous.
Heh, this wasn't bad at all, feels like the show might be recovering some of its grounding, even if it doesn't really have the silly charm of the earliest seasons. The Marceline mini-series was pretty solid too, for much of the same reason: they kept the pseud brain-farts of art students with no formal education in philosophy to a minimum, they advanced a plot, and were overall a fulfilling experience rather than a confounding one.
And if you want to believe that, that's fine to believe that.
There are people right now who unironically dislike adventure time even though the recent serious but silly episodes are as good as it can get.
Also why the fuck did Betty have a disgusting man voice, if the voice actor left/died they could have at least used some other female voice.
i thought the voice sounded magic man-ish, which would make sense seeing as she got magic man's powers
other explanation could be she was disguising her voice with the can so as not to give away her identity
Another guy told me the same thing about the nipples, I gotta learn how to do that.
I would make a tumblr, but I can't seem to come up with a good name. Should I do the ghost girls or Susan Strong next?
>everyone is getting a happy end except for Finn
>no more playing around with tricks or macguffins
>just straight wrecking everybody like he's supposed to
>no happy endings for anyone
>series ends with Finn being the hero he's always wanted to be, jumping into battle against impossible odds
it's just a good time marker for when the plot came to the forefront and ruined everything. Flame Princess was the first arc. Finn's personality was destroyed around that time and has never recovered, and without Finn what is this damn show anyway?
upcoming episode names
>Broke His Crown
it's happening isn't it
Nah, I think they didn't want to spend more money on calling back Dunham for voicing Betty. They went for a cheap route this time around.
The episode that scares me the most out of this season is Crossover. I fear it may be a "Finn and Jake meet Fionna and Cake" kind of episode. Which is bad.
This week has been quite sub-par for me (except for Bad Jubies which was great). It feels like they don't have new interesting ideas for the show. Not a fan at the moment.
I think the problem is they can't connect episodes together in a way that builds to something. SU''s episodes last week combined backstory with character development introduced new characters and plot elements and had thr cast move towards their goal with the drill. AT's only episode that advanced things was King's Ransom and it didn't even do all that much.
>AT's only episode that advanced things
THAT is what killed AT. The very thing that you want is what ruined it. This whole idea that it needs to have big motivations behind every last little thing. The show actually worked when the only thing carried on from episode to episode were small little jokes. They opened pandora's box by trying to widen the scope of the show, and it blew up in their faces because they'll never be able to satisfy the people that they're angling the show towards now.
>they'll never be able to satisfy the people that they're angling the show towards now
and yet they keep trying. how can they not see how unsatisfying their quarter-assed story is? I can't imagine the kinda hugbox they have set up over there.
>tfw remembering old AT fun times with frozen business men getting promotions for kissing dogs and shrinky-dink treasure guardians who grow with water.
modern episodes also have stuff that sounds fun when you describe it like that. too bad it somehow isn't fun now. just get rid of the drama and romance and the show will be great again, they said.
AT got Dextered. It's when homos and women gain a more prominent role in the writer's room and straight, white autistic men have a decreased role.
Guys what if by modifying the crown Betty triggers the process that turns Ice King into Ice Thing.
That reminds me of this thing
Someone did a pretty commendable job going through all of AT's lore and arranging it into a timeline, and it sounds fucking awesome when written like this but when it happens in the show it's boring as hell.
You can get more enjoyment reading a wiki page rather than actually watching the show at this point.
The anime fanart is ehh but man, those Enchiridion images are so fucking good.
Would be a lot better if they had some other pictures like those to fit in with other events but he did the best he could I suppose.
I liked it when the writing was so good that even the most simple and stupid things were magical. The show is boring and inane now, a lot of the time. Following the lore is one reason to tolerate that, but I know it's not gonna be worth it anyway.
I've been saying this for the last longest. People took the bits of backstory we got and just ran wild with it, to the point their headcanon eclipsed the actual show. How could the writing ever compete with what's in someone's own imagination?
That's basically the point. There's hardly any difference between adventure episodes then and now, people just got brought in by hype and others like>>79043881 and >>79043802 are just delusional and blame their general lack of interest on the writing being bad.
You say this but that's the main reason the show became as big as it did and ironically the reason why it didn't become stale like Phineas and Ferb and Regular Show. They never did open Pandora's Box or suddenly decide to appeal to those people it was always there, AT was a show that changed depending on who storyboarded an episode and obviously people liked inputs from other artists than most which let to a split in what people wanted from it. People were saying that the show had gone downhill from the second season onward, the "golden age" you call it, just because they were not happy with the show focusing outside Finn and Jake while others wanted the opposite. Following these threads going on 6 years have truly been an experience and the only real difference is that all the shippers and bandwagoners fucked off to SU and the remnants of what's left actually did care about the show.
Why? There's nothing about the show that's outright bad now or that's substantially different from back then so you're either lying out your ass making execuses or just won't admit you don't care for the show anymore.
Wow...that's complete fucking shit.
>They never did open Pandora's Box or suddenly decide to appeal to those people it was always there
Hell didn't the show make fun of idiots who took the lore and characters seriously? Those are the same people saying it sucks now and have become SUfags as a result.
And that's where we differ, because in my view the show's gotten worse in just about every respect other than storytelling, and that's only because now the show tries to have a story (even though I feel it's mostly shit) so that automatically means it's better than the earlier seasons in that regard.
I know my own devotion to the show and if I didn't care anymore I sure as shit wouldn't be in dead talkback threads arguing about it, and making excuses as an anonymous person on an Internet forum is dumb.
Show just kind of sucks now but not enough for me to drop it entirely.
>the "golden age" you call it
And re-read my last sentence, the people that the show is going for now are frequently unsatisfied because the lore is never rich enough, or some other absurd reason. It's absurd because it's an 11 minute show counting the opening and ending animation, and people want something beyond humor and weird adventures. The person I initially replied to is a prime example of someone who wants a gallon of water kept on a teaspoon. The package of AT in the format that it's in is consistently ruined when they attempt to cater to lore-whores who don't understand how time constraints work and demand that every last thing be purposed into advancing some huge plot with an amazing payoff years down the line.
You people are truly hopeless.
>the people that the show is going for now are frequently unsatisfied because the lore is never rich enough
Those people are long gone bro, they fucked off to SU, anyone complaining about lore at this point is shitposting or finding something to complain about because its not enough that the show is focusing on those aspects it now has to have been foreshadowed seasons ago to satisfy them. It took me until Stakes to realize that nothing AT does will make people here happy and the best way to enjoy it is to avoid discussion here not like it matters considering the content of most top threads here are waufufaggotry.
Multiple plot threads that are all interconnected, something that was barely a part of seasons 1 or 2. The most I can imagine was Finn's relationship with Marceline and that was basically a feature of like three episodes.
You're really in denial if you're thinking modern Adventure Time doesn't have more of an emphasis on plot/story than earlier Adventure Time did. That's the reason most fans who still like it are fans of late and not early AT.
>There's hardly any difference between adventure episodes then and now
nah. Modern AT doesn't have the same energy and vibe. The characters drag their asses around because they can't get excited about their own adventures, so how am I supposed to. the writers can't even recreate the simple charm of something dumb like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NY4v42GeOKQ, which, several years ago, someone was able to just pull out of his ass.
>It's absurd because it's an 11 minute show
not an excuse desu. just address the plot threads in long arcs that run from episode to episode, like Steven Universe does. I don't think the network is baring down on them, forcing the show to be episodic and status quo-y. Yes to make it plot-based you have to make less "filler", that is, the episodic stories that used to comprise 100% of Adventure Time. But that's the sacrifice you need to make when you have a bunch of dramatic shit and character development you wanna pursue.
I'm kinda hoping that Simon stays as the IK at the end of the show. It would feel kinda weird to have IK gone because he's become kinder and a bit more aware as the show's gone on. It'd be more bittersweet, too.
I don't really care either way since if a change does happen it'll be in the very last episode of the show and at that point it's like who gives a shit, but yeah that would be the better way to do it.
Having him be IK whose in a happier position with friends lets him get a bit of a happy ending while also not undoing all the tragedy of Simon and stuff.
>Multiple plot threads that are all interconnected, something that was barely a part of seasons 1 or 2.
Wrong again sempai. You had a lot of things scattered about even back then, all that changed is that the cast got bigger and even nowadays there's less plot threads going about then there were back then.
>That's the reason most fans who still like it are fans of late and not early AT.
Cool horseshit bro.
The best thing about AT us that you can really see where people are talking out their ass when they say its not as good anymore. Not really selling an argument there mate
>just address the plot threads in long arcs that run from episode to episode, like Steven Universe does.
So basically you want a lot of episodes that are pointless and don't matter all to reach a revelation in the last episode that could have been wrapped up in less time? Its like you people don't even try to pretend you know what you're talking about.
Nah, they definitely upped the ante on that considerably compared to earlier AT.
Most of the plot threads you're thinking of weren't really plot threads in early seasons, but modern seasons used them as a foundation to build off of.
And it makes sense that current fans are fans of that since the show's not nearly as funny or adventurous as it used to be, so the draw is the plot/lore/character development. Is that everyone's draw, of course not, but I think it's why most people are still sticking around.
>Multiple plot threads that are all interconnected, something that was barely a part of seasons 1 or 2.
You may want to rewatch those seasons again because there were a lot of threads that were dropped back then like the Lich, Mushroom War and other shit.
>You're really in denial if you're thinking modern Adventure Time doesn't have more of an emphasis on plot/story than earlier Adventure Time did.
Its not, all that's transpired us that you've gotten bored with it and don't want to admit it.
>That's the reason most fans who still like it are fans of late and not early AT.
What? If anything most everyone still posting are old fans, the shippers and lorefags and thankfully gone now.
>Most of the plot threads you're thinking of weren't really plot threads in early seasons, but modern seasons used them as a foundation to build off of.
Yep, the Lich appeared in season 6, must have slipped my mind.
That makes no fucking sense especially since all the lorefags are gone.
I wish I was delusional like you guys to still immensely enjoy the show more than other anons here.
>These aren't plot threads and came after season 2
Why people like you are still posting on these threads I have no clue.
They sprinkled tings like that but never did much with them while later seasons went into overdrive on that aspect (while still keeping episodic hi-jinks episodes happening too).
What the hell have I gotten bored with? The goofy stuff so now I'm saying modern AT is all plot? It currently has both but is filled with lots more story/plot stuff than early seasons.
Those are people who bailed because AT was the popular trendy thing and then it failed to meet their expectations, but I would argue a good deal of old fans left as well because it's both been a long fucking time (6 years) and the show has had some hefty changes that would turn some people off.
New people would have had to come in to fill those gaps.
Not sure what's sadder? Shitposting in a dead shows thread and trying to pretend you know what you're talking about to save face.
Assuming you meant to put 2 in there, he did appear then and then late seasons expanded on him, doing all that shit with making him part of the Mushroom War and stuff.
In his first appearance he was a spooky skeleton that fucked shit up and got defeated and that was the end of it till they brought him back.
And later seasons considerably expanded on all of those things man. You saying Mushroom War is especially silly since that was mentioned by name one time and was never used for anything more than flavoring the backgrounds in earlier seasons.
And Simon was made in season 3.
Like I said I barely participate in discussionfor this show or anything /co/ related in general anymore. If I'm delusional for still enjoying what I watch other than needlessly finding something to complain about its no skin off my nose.
>while later seasons went into overdrive on that aspect
Not really, people are sure to forget the episode Sad Face which mocked that portion of the fandom.
Well given the activity of the threads there isn't a slew of new people getting into it like you think.
Sad Face was mocking the people who wanted more straight up wacky adventures, "less artsy more fartsy" and shit. It was more talking about art as a whole I think, not being a meta commentary on the show's fans, thought I guess it could be read that way.
And if it was that meta commentary it was pretty ironic considering Sad Face was boring as heck.
I think people who have gotten into stay well clear from 4chan, mostly because of the reputation this place has in general and also the fact that /co/ sort of hates AT now.
That is your opinion and you are more than welcome to it.
I didn't totally hate it like some people did but man was it mostly dull. The circus keeper guy was kind of funny though, and the entire little insect circus itself was interesting.
Also could have been some insight into Jake's character as long as his tail is reliable.
Skip the rest of my post dude?
And I think that's valid. Some people consider the current show to be artsy and want the fartsy back, and the episode was kind of saying that those people are after entertainment for the lowest common denominator.
Though since it was made by Graham Falk I don't think that's what he was going with, he always does his own weird little things so I don't see him giving a shit about that.
The argument was that there were no ongoing plot threads in AT back then, there were whether they were expanded later on is irrelevant and goes to show that AT was always about plot and wasn't just something they brought up later on to focus. Also even then those back stories were barely focused since we still don't know shit about the Lich.
I'm not sure what's more pathetic. The anon who tries to preach that AT is the same show from season 1 despite multiple people from many different websites saying it isn't or using some smug anime image like that bolsters your argument. I bet you aren't buddybuddy with any of the writers, so YOU know just as much as we know.
Also your sentence structure is shit faggot. It's supposed to be
>Not sure what's sadder? Shitposting in a dead shows thread or blah blah blah
since you're implying I'm doing both. Go back to school.
>If I'm delusional for still enjoying what I watch other than needlessly finding something to complain about its no skin off my nose.
I still enjoy AT and even I can still figure out it's faults and change in tone seasons 5 and 6 brought upon us. The fact that you're even commenting proves that your jimmies have been rustled to the point of jumping in to try and convince anons otherwise like the post above.
It existing and it being part of the tangled plot threads and arcs they have now are two different things.
There were episodes about the Lich and stuff but they were either one offs or more disconnected, whereas the modern show has things that are more connected and stuff, and a good amount of their stuff is based off using old stuff from the earlier show as part of these things.
This isn't even a bad thing or anything since if you're having a plot focused (or semi-focused) show it makes sense to draw upon things that already exist and it would be jarring if everything pre season 4 was totally ignored or something, but I feel that it does show how the modern show is more story/plot heavy than the earlier show was.
Bringing it a bit back on topic, opinions on all the episodes that aired this month?
My objectively correct opinions:
>Summer Showers: 6/10
>Angel Face: 7/10
>PP is Missing: 6/10
>Blank Eyed Girl: 6/10
>Bad Jubies: 6/10
>King's Ransom: 8/10
Decent week even with many episodes that I felt were lacking.
6/10. Was a bit boring but had decent jokes and was cozy
9/10 I really liked the episode, even if I generally don't appreciate BMO much. Stories about him/her tended to be much better though
>PP is Missing
7/10, just a nice episode S2 style with some good jokes. Lacked consistence and a real plot
>Blank Eyed Girl
9/10. Probably my favourite episode this week.
7/10 better than I expected, very sweet animation too. I felt especially this one was lacking a real plot, although the final message was beautiful.
9/10 objectively best episode. Decent plot, very good storytelling, really funny and finally did what made older AT episodes so great - introducing lore in small steps to make it possible for people to talk about it without it losing its magic.
I'm hyped for the two remaining episodes and I honestly think S7 is so far the best season since S4.
>It existing and it being part of the tangled plot threads and arcs they have now are two different things.
Not really, they did exist and they left them open on purpose that's the very definition of a plot thread.
Overall 8/10, best episode was King's Ransom and least good Summer Showers. Everyone was entertaining in its own way and this really makes a departure from the shit that has been season 6
>all this salt
I can make a years supply of boiled eggs with it.
They weren't planning all this crazy shit in season 1 and 2 dude, they were making a wacky as cartoon and wondering if they would get another season or not. I'm sure the vast majority of stuff was designed to never be used again, they just went back to it once they realized they were so popular they wouldn't have to worry abut the show ending for years and as they wondered about what episodes to make they used stuff they had already done.
I never said it was planned, AT was never about having a planned story in mind just random shit artist had that they wanted in the show. What you see in later seasons is them covering up their tracks from back then.
If you're saying they left em open on purpose that seems to imply that they had a grand plan to come back and expand upon stuff, when I think what they actually did is look back and go "hey we could make this an episode" with lots of different things.
It's between Angel Face and King's Ransom for me and I think Angel Face wins out too.
Was one of the most entertaining low stakes fun adventures the show's had in quite some time, lots of funny little gags and quips and dialogue. I'm pretty happy they keep bringing NEPTR back because BMO's hatred of him is always funny to me.
I was pretty disappointed in Bad Jubies, for a guest animation episode all they did was sit around and talk for like 90% of it. Even the storm wasn't very impressive.
That's probably due to the limitations of stop motion but go hard or go home man, at least have Jake fucking stretch a little more.
>It's between Angel Face and King's Ransom for me and I think Angel Face wins out too.
>Was one of the most entertaining low stakes fun adventures the show's had in quite some time, lots of funny little gags and quips and dialogue. I'm pretty happy they keep bringing NEPTR back because BMO's hatred of him is always funny to me.
This. Angel Face was a very entertaining episode with a lot of light-hearted jokes, I really loved it.
Blanked Eyed Girl goes for best episode, if only because it was hilarious to watch for the first time.
King's Ransom for second, just because it was nice fun and had stuff that could make for neat plot later on, if they deliver it right.
Pretty much the same except Summer Showers being a 4 or 5 due to how tiresome I find LSP now, especially as she's gone from 'drama-queen who doesn't appreciate weight of situation' to something rather malicious, even kinda sociopathic. It's gotten to the point where it feels hard to buy the other characters having anything to do with her.
That said it feels to me that the writers are trying to get back into "regular AT" and aren't quite there yet, but the ideas so far have been really good.

an episode that had it's cast page leaked months ago called "I Am A Sword". Evidence points towards it being an Alden & Jmoyns episode that involves the spike people from Gut Grinder
>The argument was that there were no ongoing plot threads in AT back then
durr, there's weren't. there is a huge difference between suggesting there may have been a war long ago, for example, and doing flashbacks and explicitly doing drama with it. The first is just a setting, it's not a story on its own.
literally are you blind, nigga. the later seasons are tied up in continuity and lore a lot more, it's just a fact.
>Evidence points towards it being an Alden & Jmoyns episode that involves the spike people from Gut Grinder
see, continuity fetish. early AT didn't re-reference every fucking kingdom and character from a bazillion years ago because that kills the sense of exploration.
The only plot-like thing I can think of before season 3 was the lich, and his purpose was to be final boss, which happened at the end of season 2. But then the show got renewed...
There are tragic elements in seasons 1-3 like the wreckage everywhere, Ice King's obvious insanity, or Finn being an orphan, but that shit was pretty stable chilling out in the background until like season 4 or 5. The "development" suddenly exploded out of nowhere. Can largely be blamed on Sugar, although she didn't do the first episode with Simon, so I wonder who came up with that.
>tfw you can't even remember what happened with Betty anymore this shit has been going on for so long
whatever I guess
hard to complain about the plot when you can't even follow it
this monday Adventure Time is airing non-stop from 6am-5pm. Then they're gonna air Clarence for an hour and then they'll rerun Stakes. Apparently they're calling Stakes a movie now, dunno why.
Is it actually crafted into one airing space, like a movie, or are they really just rerunning all eight episodes in a row.
>tfw no awesome treehouse full of loot to share with my magical dog brother
>tfw no daily adventures with whimsical friends and sexy vampire ladies
