I liked it a lot better when the post apocalyptic shit was only implied. Adventure Time's has a problem of over explaining itself. The writers aren't nearly good enough to handle nuanced storytelling so they end up beating you over the head with anything they thought was the least bit clever. Ultimately the more questions they answer about OOO and the characters pasts the less special the whole thing feels.
>>
>>77712220
Since when did Steven keep his magic a secret?
>>
>>77712220
Lol that Episode 1 description is completely wrong. Steven was a self-centered whiny piece of shit in the early episodes.
>>
>>77712146
In my opinion Steven Universe suffered this.
S1 was great and not so much social commentary expect maybe the Stevonnie episode. (the anxiety part).
When i saw the final i pray to god that shit don't carry S2.
Sadly i was wrong. The second season is the most commentary and "trying to appeal gays" so far. Also i feel all of the new episodes bland compared by the old ones.
The exceptions are the Hospital one and the Sword one. Great song.

I'm not really ready to write season 2 off just yet, but I agree. Though in fairness to the show, season 2 hasn't been able to go more than 5 episodes without months of hiatus so it may be making the problem seem worse than it really is. There's still an ass-load of interesting episode titles that have been revealed that are no where close to being aired. Hopefully the fag pandering tones down a bit too. I was willing to ignore the shitposters as the progressive themes were literally 1% of the show but now it's bumped up to like, 40% of the show. Garnet needs to stop "muh fusion" and "do you get that i'm a lesbian couple." She used to be so cool.
>>
>>77712318
in the first few episodes he never went out with the gems or even talked about them he actually avoided talking about them at all.Now he just walks everywhere in town with them.
>>
>>77712497
it becomes worse in S2
>>
>>77712538
Yeah they do dude. Hiding magical occurrences was never a thing in the show. One of the first things steven mentions to Connie when she meets her is that hes magic and he lives with magic people.
>>
>>77712424
Season 1 was shit though. Too much filler and nothing of real substance happened.
>>
>>77712524
I dunno, considering muh patterns, it seems like the next episode is going to be a Peridot-Garnet bonding episode, and what better thing to bond over than muh fusion?

Maybe if we're lucky fusion will finally start to take a back seat after the episode ends, though I wouldn't count on it since Malachite is still around.

i bet you're one of those lorefag, Gravity Falls is supposed to be a character-driven show with a lot of mystery element in it. The character itself is what makes me hooked up with the show at the first time i watched it.
I agreed that S2 has more interesting storyline and lore but at least S1 has better character moment and the jokes felt much more natural. S2 suffered with a lot of out of character moment, too much self-aware, shitcom-tier jokes, trying to be deeper with a surprising twist and status quo change, but the outcome was underwhelming, but let's see how they handle the final.

This reads like someone who's never actually watched Steven Universe.

It doesn't even need to be said at this point
>>
>>77713293
In episode 1 Steven is talking to Lars and Lars teases him about his "Magic Belly Button". It's never implied that Steven is hiding it at all. There's more evidence to the contrary than anything.
>>
>>77713293
How could they have been best friends if they had just met? Also Steven showed Peedee his cat fingers.

Guilty as charge. Goes for all shows when I think about it.
I remember as a kid, I couldn't stand sonic's
AOSTH series but the SatAM got me hooked as fuck.

I've always preferred shows that play on continuity as opposed to formulas.
>>
>>77713961
I feel like I need to watch this show now. I thought season 1 was okay, but stopped half way through it and deciding to watch it all later but never really did.

season 3 is the best by far
they constantly break the fourth wall and have actually funny and original episode themes every so often

just skip to the episode "The Sweaters" if you want to see what the show actually can be.

Gravity Falls has so much continuity it would've been better to not dick around so much. There is a tipping point.
>>
>>77712146
It's not even excusable as "Finn got more mature and mature people think about these things". He did think about those things. He helped someone get over a existential crisis just like that. When he was fucking 12. God dammit.

Aside from the gradual improvement in animation quality over the course of the series we also got to see almost all the characters fleshed out and some of the kids even switched sides.

This was also one of the earliest Cartoon Network shows with actual continuity.
>>
>>77716576
Huh, I had no idea Hartman worked on Spongebob

And now he's a stock character used to sponge the metric tons of """drama""" and tears the Crystal Gems produce.

SU in general is very hit and miss. It's just that season 2 had a lot more misses than usual.
>>
>>77717173
It was only one episode. Probably one of the few with a good ending for Plankton.

>the occurrences were rare enough that it never really took away from anything.

It completely fucked up the S6 finale.
>>
>>77717593
It was just this wierd thing that sometimes happened in the show. A nice easter egg that punctuated things and acted like a quasi moral of the story that was either pseudo deep or simple yet profound.
Like a child asking an adult who's in the depths of depression "if you're sad then try to be happy" and pulls them outside to get some sun.

Now it's all that paper thin stoner coffee house pseudo intellectual bullshit that interests too smurt for your teenage girls and twitter fucktards. Like GiTS except even dumber and more intellectually insulting and logic devoid.
>>
>>77717621
Piss poor writing fucked large chunks of S6, totally dropping the ball on the dad sub plot had absolutely nothing to do with trying to be deep.
>>
>>77717621
I actually really enjoyed the S6 finale. It gave some semblance of closure to Finn and Martin's relationship, and it actually explained the significance of the clusterfuck of plot that was the comet.
>>
>>77712146
Man, I miss the "retro video game" shtick from the beginning. Now it's just faggy pseudo-intellectual bullshit. This is a kids show man, why do they have to complicate things?
>>

Has it gotten bad? Whats the difference between now and the acid trip that was the first season? Just normalfag as fuck?
>>
>>77717095
Yep, I remember this show started of as action-comedy about five kids fighting bunch of adult villans, turning the next seasons it became a THING before Adventure Time.
>>
>>77718599
The problem was the love triangle thing in S6, in between episodes the show was less surreal and formulatic.
>>
Adventure Time hasn't changed. The fans have.

I read a creepypasta or some shit that said at the beginning of each show, Mordecai and Rigby would drop a hit of acid, and the show then follows them through the peak and coming down. Made it infinity better viewing it like that in my mind.

Perharps you are referring to the early short made by the series creator.

Maybe. This was when the show first came out though so I have no clue broseph.

>>
>>77719898
It was an attention stunt to try and get a second series greenlit, CN wasn't interested though, gotta make room for your new favorite show after all.
>>
>>77719413
I couldn't help but be a little disappointed with the direction the series went. I loved the use of the more modern setting in the first season, with cool stuff like Pro Bending and that car chase sequence, but as the show went on, we got less and less of that. A lot of seasons 2-4 felt like they could have just as easily taken place around the time of The Last Airbender, and I think the show threw away a bit of its own identity and potential when it went that route.
