Today's the half-hour BMO special guys! What are you expecting, will it be good? Looking at Herpich's preview comics it looks like it will really be at least a good bit about Moe's backstory and how he created BMO and probably other MOs.
Also there are two parts to the comic so be sure to look at the staff tumblr
I'm one of those guys who don't even like BMO (yes we exist), but I'm really looking forward to this special, especially since I appreciated "Football" a lot.
I hope they won't disappoint me, also I'd like to know if Moe was born before or after the war.
I thought it was just gonna be another christmas special to be honest.
They've advertised "New Adventure Time" episode, but it basically amounted to Fin and Jake playing in the snow.
Still it being about BMO and Moe? I might be able to get behind that.
>nobody leaked the episodes
How am I supposed to watch with my fellow /co/mrades now, I'm a poor European without access to US CN
fucking hyped for it
Haters fuck off I waited for years for this backstory on him and Moe
When the board strikes 7:00, or 19:00.
So I guess this is the "talkback" thread, or is this just another thread that'll die or be abandoned for the "real" talkback thread.
Looking at the low activity at the moment I'd say we can use this as a talkback thread, since the theme is the same. If there's some major activity before 19:00 we can make up a talkback thread tho
I'm looking forward to it. I love Beemo and I love holiday specials. I'm glad we're finally getting another AT holiday special, we haven't had one since Holly Jolly Secrets and Thank You, and both of those were excellent.
Just uncheck the "convert to local time" option in the setting menu, then look to the earliest post on the top of the board.
You'll know what time it is in 4chan time.
>Not watching AT's revival period
Get on that, they're pretty alright.
>Jontron is fucking great though
Either way, there seems to be this current thing where some guy keeps stirring up shit while posting him. Like that guy who keeps using that one image of Pacha.
To be fair I watched Varmints because I was really into Bonnie and her two-gun. My social life is killing me though, it's the first time in two weeks I've been on /co/. I'll definitely catch on later
Don't know, never paid attention to it. I've seen a faggot trying to derail AT threads some time ago while using Jontron gifs, but I don't know if it's something that happens a lot.
Wow this has been such an important story arc! I mean it only took 2 fucking seasons, but who cares if writers forget shit. Who cares that theyre gonna half ass shit once again. Oh yes Adventure Time fags let us keep sucking on these hipster faggots cocks as if this fucking show even matters anymore
>And it had some of the best episodes AT ever produced.
You're right, but it also had most of the worst AT episodes so far made. I'm more talking about the style than the amount though, I really wasn't into how S6 (and, to a lesser degree, S5) presented general backstory.
Not the guy you're responding too, but you're an idiot. S6 had some of the worst episodes. The reception for some of them was terrible. S6 was littered with Jesses stupid bullshit.
>Chips and Ice Crean
>That horrible Finn arc pacing
>S6 had some of the worst episodes.
Can't think of a single one.
>S6 was littered with Jesses stupid bullshit.
it's in the okay episode. it's a nice parody of the ol Circus story. Don't get where the hate is coming from
>>Chips and Ice Cream
A very cute episode. Once again, the hate for it make no fucking sense.
An okay episode. What is wrong with it. I like Jake taking some time with one of his kid.
>>That horrible Finn arc pacing
I don't even know what you are talking about, there.
Sorry m8, but at this point you're just clearly baiting. Even outside /co/ there's a general consensus that one half really liked where S6 was going, while the other one didn't like it at all. And you won't find any people on /co/ telling that S6 was good, really. I'm not even one of those people who hate Breezy that much, but Chips and Ice Cream definitely belongs to the "so bad it needs to be killed" tier.
The Diary was pretty okay, the kitschy pace wasn't well done though.
>Sorry m8, but at this point you're just clearly baiting.
I honestly am not. I enjoyed all of those episode. I wouldn't call them great, but they are all definitely okay.
>And you won't find any people on /co/ telling that S6 was good,
I am. And I can't fathom any good reason to hate it.
>but Chips and Ice Cream definitely belongs to the "so bad it needs to be killed" tier.
Why? this episode is pure cuteness. Seriously, the ate for it make no fucking sense.
>it's in the okay episode. it's a nice parody of the ol Circus story. Don't get where the hate is coming from
Nothing of substance worth remembering, story is sluggish and really should have been spent on developing other things besides this. Jake The Brick and Everything's Jake were leagues better.
>A very cute episode. Once again, the hate for it make no fucking sense.
More like fucking annoying to the bone. Two characters repeating the same phrase over and over the entire episode is not funny. Doesn't help that there wasn't any jokes to make me smile.
>An okay episode. What is wrong with it. I like Jake taking some time with one of his kid.
It felt boring to me. I'll let you have this one but the others are terribad.
>I don't even know what you are talking about, there.
Finn's arm coming back, still not fixing his romance problem, the Martin arc being scattered all over the season, the Orgalorg finish with hem taking a one off joke into a bunch of episodes that didn't deliver.
After being all philosophical with him last season and focusing more on comedy this season they have him in a rough spot overall. I hope they can balance out what he's learned the previous season with a more enthusiastic side of his personality.
>I honestly am not. I enjoyed all of those episode. I wouldn't call them great, but they are all definitely okay.
Then you're either really new here or still trolling. You should know how most of the people feels towards episodes like Breezy, Chips and Ice Cream, and Friends Forever (I think this is how it was called?)
>I am. And I can't fathom any good reason to hate it.
They're generally horribly paced, pretentious as hell and just overall incompatible with the spirit of AT (even if talking about the later seasons' spirit) and just not fun. I'm a big AT fanboy and even I get it.
>Why? this episode is pure cuteness. Seriously, the ate for it make no fucking sense.
It's a really, really annoying episode and just not fun. It's not even one of those pretentious "muh lore/backstory/meta" episodes. It's just, again, annoying and not interesting at all.
I read somewhere when the episode first aired how there were supposed to be subtitles to what the two fucks were actually saying during the episode. It seemed kinda all right compared what we finally got.
The general S6/Orgalorg arg was just terribly paced. What makes me feel sad though is even though S7 is a great improvment atm people still have time to argue about the whole Orgalorg shit. It happened, it was bad and it is over.
The Diary was average and Sad Face slightly underwhelming at best.
>Then you're either really new here or still trolling.
I have been here since way before AT even existed. i have no issue expressing opinions that goes against the main-trend.
>ou should know how most of the people feels towards episodes like Breezy, Chips and Ice Cream, and Friends Forever (I think this is how it was called?)
I know it and it still make no fucking sense. Especially for Friends Forever, especially as, for what I have read so far, it stem from people makaing a point of misunderstanding a single joke that shouldn't even be taken seriously in the first place to call the whole episode garbage.
>They're generally horribly paced, pretentious as hell and just overall incompatible with the spirit of AT
There is nothing pretentious in it at all. Quit on the contrary, they are just silly story. they are the opposite of pretentious, it's just meant to be cute and funny and that's it. Their sily nature fit extremly well with the AT. As for the passing, I'll admit it's slower, (and the main reason it's just an okay episode), but it's in no way bad. James Baxter was bad because it was boring. Neither Sad Face nor Chips and Ice cream are.
>Two characters repeating the same phrase over and over the entire episode is not funny
Here is an hint. the episdoe is not about Chips and Ice Cream, it's about BMO. What make this episode good is how BMO react and deal with them. The humor also stem from How Jake simply does not give a fuck about being cursed and it's driving Finn nuts instead. Not the best or the most original kind of humor, but still well executed enough.
>Finn's arm coming back
Fin's arm evolving into something else. The evolution of his arm is still not over. It is just a step.
>still not fixing his romance problem
It was actually fixed in Breezy.
> the Martin arc being scattered all over the season
Yes, it's called an overarching plot.
>Nothing of substance worth remembering,
It's a filler episode, nothing wrong with that in itself.
>story is sluggish and really should have been spent on developing other things besides this. Jake The Brick and Everything's Jake were leagues better.
I don't mind the passing. It fit the tone of the kind of movies it was parodying, but I guess if you don't like what it was parodying in the first place, you wouldn't like it either. I never called this episode great though and I won't say it's the equal of Jake the brick, but it's in no way bad either.
>, the Orgalorg finish with hem taking a one off joke into a bunch of episodes that didn't deliver.
Taking one-off joke and turning it into something serious is something AT has always done. And the strange nature of Ghunter has always been there. It's in no way something that was mentioned one time. And it did deliver.
Adventure Time never on any of it's seasons followed the main plot directly, it's always been scattered and bring back moments or recalls. We even know the list in which episodes are aired might not even be in chronological order because of the whole King Worm thing.
Why NOW that is a problem?
>I have been here since way before AT even existed. i have no issue expressing opinions that goes against the main-trend.
You're trying to act ignorant then m8.
>I know it and it still make no fucking sense. Especially for Friends Forever, especially as, for what I have read so far, it stem from people makaing a point of misunderstanding a single joke that shouldn't even be taken seriously in the first place to call the whole episode garbage.
I'm not even talking about the supposed SJW gender whatever joke (I believe it's the only one that made me smile in this episode actually), the episode in general was just very mean-spirited. Many think this, and you're concentrating your argument on trolls fucking around people like you instead of people who actually watched the episode. Only the baiters ever gave a fuck about the lamp.
>There is nothing pretentious in it at all. Quit on the contrary, they are just silly story. they are the opposite of pretentious, it's just meant to be cute and funny and that's it.

James Baxter was bad because it was boring. Neither Sad Face nor Chips and Ice cream are.
I enjoyed Sad Face (although I found it worse than average desu), but saying that Chips and Ice Cream is more interesting than James Baxter is just bullshit. This episode what the legitimately first time since the first AT episode I had to stop watching because it was really frustrating and annoying. Yes, that episode was silly, but it doesn't mean it was good in any way. I honestly couldn't think about any S5 episode worse than this one, or any episode at all for that matter.
Also not the other anon but
>It was actually fixed in Breezy.
The episode just fucked him up even more.
>Yes, it's called an overarching plot.
It was really badly paced though, and this is the main criticism.
I watched them many times just to be sure. Sad Face still isn't good. It's not shit, it's just not good/enjoyable imo. The Diary is on the other hand, but compared to the big majority of really good AT episodes not more than average.
So have I, that first MO episode was really interesting
>Many think this, and you're concentrating your argument on trolls fucking around people like you instead of people who actually watched the episode. Only the baiters ever gave a fuck about the lamp.
It's not so much that I am concentrating on it, that it's usually the only complain that I see about it.
>was just very mean-spirited.
I am okay with a certain level of mean-spiritness. In the end, the episode end well for me because the Ice-King throw all his mean furnitures out a cliff, as they deserve and Ice King kinda apologies to the magus.
>This episode what the legitimately first time since the first AT episode I had to stop watching because it was really frustrating and annoying
I had fun with BMO and Jake and Finn all reacting differently to C&IC, IMO, especially BMO.
Maybe I am a Jake and you are a Finn?
>I honestly couldn't think about any S5 episode worse than this one, or any episode at all for that matter.
Red Throne is still insufferable to watch for me. So is Frost and Fire. I could watch C&IC any time of the day over those two. The fact is, I could watch them anytime of the day regardless.
>The episode just fucked him up even more.
No, it didn't. Breezy mark the end of the emotional Drama of Finn. From that point on, Finn stopped being an emotional wreck, that's the opposite of "being even more fucked up".
>It was really badly paced though, and this is the main criticism.
I don't know if well placed i s the right term. I mean you see him at the beginning, you see him at the middle of the season and then it focus more on him at the end. It's as well paced as well paced can be.
Though I'd agree there could have been more episodes about him.
Sad Face is super charming, I disagree man. There's something really magical about the ending, with the tail stretching back through the episode
And The Diary is just funny and lovely in the best ways AT can be.
>I am okay with a certain level of mean-spiritness. In the end, the episode end well for me because the Ice-King throw all his mean furnitures out a cliff, as they deserve and Ice King kinda apologies to the magus.
I get your argument, the apology part doesn't make it up for me though. I still feel a huge imbalance, even considering the arguably comfy end.
>I had fun with BMO and Jake and Finn all reacting differently to C&IC, IMO, especially BMO. Maybe I am a Jake and you are a Finn?
As said before, the idea isn't bad at all, and I believe it could have been bareable if they'd put any subtitles to the two things. But I don't get at all how they got through with making the episode like this. Again, it's just annoying.
Also it's probably the first time someone ever said I'm a Finn
>Red Throne is still insufferable to watch for me. So is Frost and Fire. I could watch C&IC any time of the day over those two. The fact is, I could watch them anytime of the day regardless.
I in turn don't get much the hate for many of the FP arc episodes. They're not good, but not bad either. Red Throne just has a very bad aftertaste to it. I love episodes like Burning Low or even The Cooler though.
>No, it didn't. Breezy mark the end of the emotional Drama of Finn. From that point on, Finn stopped being an emotional wreck, that's the opposite of "being even more fucked up".
Just because he started looking to get out of the drama doesn't mean he isn't a wreck anymore. He certainly got how he should end this, but he didn't really do much against it in most episodes.
>Though I'd agree there could have been more episodes about him.
This is the problem. He just kinda appeared, did nothing and disappeared soon after, just to show Finn how much of a shitty life he had during this season. I'm not a Martin hater or anything, but I really believe his whole arc was just a lame excuse to put in a new character who's part of his family.
There's no real reason for him to exist and he just came in like
>lol whatevs kid I mean son
went through a
>so you're my son so you certainly won't deny helping me
and then left with
>oh great I'm a god now kthxbye Finn
Most don't hate the idea, they just hate how it was done, and, most of all were disappointed by it.
I actually think what they did with the Dad was really good
His introductory episodes sort of told us he was a piece of shit dad
His second exacerbates his shitty-dadness and makes him a tyranical old testament God
Third appearance shows him being a scoundrel wandering aimlessly
Final appearance explains what he is and how he differs from his son, taking his lack of taking life seriously to its logical conclusion
It was good and honest
>I still feel a huge imbalance
For me, The dick-ish move of the Ice King on the Magus is balanced by how horribly it fire back to him.
>and I believe it could have been bareable if they'd put any subtitles to the two things.
What? No, that would have made the episode worst. The whole point is that you only get their emotional state out o what they are saying. that's part of what make them cute. I strongly disagree, here.
>Again, it's just annoying
Guess it depend of the person, but for me, putting subttlitles for what they were saying would have killed the soul of this episode. All that matter anthat you need to know is that they are two sad being longing to get back home.
> I love episodes like Burning Low or even The Cooler though.
I love those episode too. I don't have any hate for FP. Frost and Fire and Red Throne are just the only two episdoe of At that I don't like and can't put myself to watch again.
>Just because he started looking to get out of the drama doesn't mean he isn't a wreck anymore
He isn't a wreck anymore.
> but he didn't really do much against it in most episodes.
He stopped being a wreck and carried on on his original calling of being an hero.
> He just kinda appeared
Are you talking about the "Escape from the Citadel" episode? He did far more than just appearing. then when he showed up again, it was for Finn to accept who is father actually was and accept he had a shitty relative.
His role in the show was to be someone idealized by the hero who betray him and how he deal with it.
What?! an Adventure Time episode that DIDNT LEAK?!?! what sorcery!!
Jake was the only good part of the Diary but he wasn't enough to save it.
Having Jake's shitty, boring kid star in an episode about an even more shitty, boring side character that goes through mundane teenage drama was like a parody of how this show can devote screentime to shitty characters no one cares about.
Had a sweet title card though, and some of the stuff the mystery gal/Nurse Poundcake said was actually pretty nice, but overall it was crap.
To be honest, when mo said that it a special mission to result in BMO becoming a grownup, combined with the promo image, I was expecting it to turn out that it would be BMO getting a Bar/Bat Mitzvah
this is not a bar/bat mitzvah
I wasn't expecting this episode to turn out like it did.
The episode wasn't what I expected. In fact, it felt creepy as well as giving us a lesson of maturing into adulthood that I haven't seen in any other animated series as the way I've seen tonight.
I thought this season was supposed to get away from all the pseudo-philosophical bullshit. This episode is fucking literally one of the most pretentious episodes yet. There's not a thing wrong with inserting deep and meaningful concepts such as becoming an adult is a child's cartoon, but there is something wrong with fucking outright stating shit because then it just comes off as preachy and the lack of subtlety insult's your intelligence.
Fuck this episode. Merry fucking Christmas, kids.
It didn't add anything to the world either, aside from axing a minor character and probably setting up a future episode where they do something with his memory core.
We could've easily had a touching moment where Mo built BMO or something but it just cut off at the end like that after some DEEP ADULT MESSAGE.
4/10 should've just been 1 episode.
While I liked them both, I would say that this episode is less overtly "pretentious" or whatever than say the episode with the psychic candy-sphinx. That episode was largely conversations about the nature of leadership, whereas this episode did more showing and less telling.
Normally I don't mind the esoteric stuff, but I agree it was way too blatant. I mean, I guess it makes sense because it's BMO piecing things together, but still. It just came off force.
Umm, I'm pretty sure you have it backwards. Goliad was definitely more subtle, not overly more subtle, but still more subtle than this episode.
Admittedly, the apparent subtlety might owe itself to the general lighter tone of Goliad when compared to tonight's episode.
so adventure time isn't as good as it used to be, but it's still pretty good
This episode of regular show though... What the fuck happened, did they start taking the "regular" part seriously?
With all the insanity in RS I think it deserves some chances just to chill. Think about this:
>Adventure Time, a fantastic setting in which mundane things happen.
>Regular Show, a mundane setting in which fantastic things happen.
Download link here!
The air times are so irregular now I think most people probably just do what I do, which is every few months just download all the released eps and binge them
I'm only watched this one live out of coincidence
You know as well as I do that it doesn't matter if they're animals or not. It's never even called attention to. I'm still pretty sure that they're only not humans because Mordecai and Benson are still high af on acid from 2 in the AM PM
Alright, finished it.
As if my opinions matters:
It was a nice episode. 8/10, very cute, but also kind of very real.
yeah, the only ad they do for new episodes, unless it's a "bomb" for the show, is part of the "New Thursday" thing, and they show all the day's previews on one 30 second clip. The indvidual previews are even shorter now, since its called New TITANS Thursday and there's TTG clips at the start and end.
I wish they went back to having separate commercials for separate shows.
It was okay.
I can see how it could have been disappointing if people were expecting something more "chill" for the Christmas season, but for a BMO story it was nice.
I feel I liked that well enough. Was interesting, get some Moe/MO expansion which while not needed was pretty nice.
I'm sad they didn't get Aziz Ansari to voice DMO again, that was lame.
AMO was a surprisingly neat villain I thought, I'm glad he was what was up and not just Moe being a filthy old asshole out of the blue. AllMoe was also very awesome, sad that he's likely going to go back to living in the run down factory all by himself and we won't see him for a real long time.
I didn't like the weird rainbow self actualization shit at the end, it felt sort of forced and added very little I thought. It's also a shame that Moe is already dead on his second appearance when they could have done a lot more with him, I think.
Liked most of the episodes though, solid 7/10 for them both. Satisfied with it.
>Finn and Jake beaten by 1 robot that shoots cannonballs
>beaten by penguins
>beaten by vamps
I bet the ice king hands Finn his ass next oh wait that already happened. Lel.
>Finn calling PB and old woman
It was told in an old Interview, I remember it back when I was on the Land of Ooo forum (it's changed alot and doesn't have the same layout, hard to navigate as an older user like myself, and I can't remember my log in) that he was intended to be bigger, much bigger than everyone else.
I wonder what happened.
What Was Missing
Yes I watch steven universe
Maaan this is something that's been happening forever. AMO didn't beat them in a fist fight or anything, he bonked em unawares and they were temporarily stunned.
Shit like this has to happen in this show and I'm alright with it when it makes sense, like how I felt this one did.
eh, we had no indication that the other MOs couldnt, just that BMO was specifically designed to be a kid's best friend
i enjoyed the fuck out of the pacing. we got a genuine twist that wasnt completely obvious because part of it was but not the other part
it helps that AMO has been someone the creators talked about since 2010, and suddenly here he fuckin is. now i wanna know who the voice was
Or it means "I felt this wasn't done in a very natural way."
The rainbow BMOs were dumb and unnecessary, I guess they wanted to add something to spice up BMO's monologue but that's a dumb way to do it, and it's not like they had to do anything for his earlier conversations with Air and stuff.
Herpich and Wolfhard seem to get off on those things at times and it usually doesn't gel very well.
yeah. Moe being hooked up to a ton of shit reminded me of portal2's original plan for a backstory where cave is hooked up to life support machines unable to die, and chipperly asks you to disconnect him
i partly agree with you The Diary was okay, Chips and Ice Cream as an analogy to Penn's career was *great*, but Finn's dad/arm arc was terribly paced and Sad Face was inexcusably sit their.
that was a good episode. i appreciated seeing a little more fleshing out of the backstory of pb and marceline being estranged friends who each think the other has a grudge against them.. and that there's still resentment but also lingering enjoyment
makes it all the better when they start hanging out more later and start becoming better friends
also gr8 music
well I think they go with the whole 'bmo imagines himself as other people' thing. Like, that's how creativity works, it's when you ask yourself questions as if you were a separate person
you have the choice of whether to follow your programming, man. we all have programming too, it's awesome, but you have to hold it back when it doesnt understand the greater situation
>texts Marceline like a giddy schoolgirl
>hangs up on Finn. During mid sentence
It could've been because she wanted to hurry to fix what was happening though.
Kid needs to call her shit or break off from her.
Anyone notice that adventure time kind of got less good? They put some older episodes on demand with my cable, so I've been watching, and they are really good and funny and really comfy to watch. Then I go to watch on demand the 7 part marceline thing and I can hardly get through it, it just feels awkward and unfun.
Also why is finn always having a complacent expression on his face, as if he's just going through the motions of life. I don't like it!
>moe had a menorah
>story was about two brothers, one good and one bad, and one killed the other
anybody familiar with the story of cain and abel? this may have been a hanukkah special all along.
I say that Finn and PB are slowly becoming each other. Like a Cats in the Cradke type thing kind of.
PB becomes more social and speaks to her citizens more. Finn closes himself off and things don't really phase him anymore, which is why he has that dull voice and blank look 70% of the time.
Lots of people feel that way. I don't know about 'comfy' since that's subjective and I never can pin down just what it means (is it just 'relaxing'?) but the older episodes were for sure more interesting, fun, and energetic a large amount of the time.
As for Finn's face I think the storyboarders/animators are just too lazy to make it do anything interesting at this point. you see all the expressions he made in these Moe episodes? Like, the same three over and over again, it's sad. I don't know when Herpich episodes got so boring on that front but it makes me feel sad.
Yeah regardless of the reason why though, I don't like it. I understand character progression, but if the character is no longer fun, what's the point?
By comfy I mean it's great to just sit back and let them play. It isn't something you need to really think about hard. It's just pure fun in a cartoon, and makes me, at least, feel just happy to watch it.
What was the name of the one with the dungeon train?
That's my favourite, it reminded me of playing mmorpgs including the point you reach in them when running dungeons and stuff starts to not have meaning. Was a cool episode. Pretty much all of season 1-4 are comfy as fuck though before it becomes somewhat hit and miss
So is that it for AT until next year?
Was a pretty alright thing to end on, unfortunately not a lot of discussion fodder. I miss days like All the Little People, that episode kept us going for a few weeks shooting the shit over Christmas hiatus.
After the Comet stuff that's pretty much what Finn's doing. He's seeing what life has to offer and enjoying what he can about it, rather than worrying too much about this or that.
I remember being kind of annoyed by that because it implied Jake will live just as long as Finn, which is really lame. Jake's like twice as old as him so he should be aging twice as fast, and him croaking eventually will be a big change in Finn's life and affect him and shit.
Dungeon Train basically said that Finn and Jake are gonna be living in the Treefort being manchildren their whole lives through.
What? You mean you didn't like the Flame Princess breakup arc, The Martin arc, or the Orgalorg arc? Why not? It was so deep and philosophical and deeply changed his character for the better! That fucking child needs shit on for chasing his dick too
i almost get the feeling that the moral with finn is gonna be 'yeah adventurerering is awesome but you don't have superpowers, kid, you should just be an accountant or something'
at least one of the writers feels this
If that's how you want to interpret it, fine, but I just don't and can't really see it like that.
Yeah but I don't like that. I liked it when it was funny. I did not laugh once in the new episode.>>77913318
I don't want to though mate, I'd like it be better.
I liked flame princess and was very ready for her to go have more adventures with finn, especially as jake explored things with his kids.
Instead, he just randomlly broke up with FP, and Jake's kids became boring characters (except for Jake. Jr), and were good as dead because of their super aging.
But this wasn't how it was supposed to be.
He was supposed to be the cool bachelor hero that cracked subtle nsfw jokes while beating down bad guys or something. Not what we have now. Anything but what we have now anon....
no. moe died so no mushroom war/humanity answers coming out of that plot thread, finn doesn't have questions or conversation for (what he at the time thought was) ANOTHER FUCKING HUMAN BEING, finn's usual apathetic uncaring finn, Princess Bitch is shoved in for no reason, the pacing is really slow (seriously, we see characters walking around doing menial things in real time, what the fuck is up with that?), and it shoves in a message terribly.
not the anon you replied to, but we're getting used to Finn being passive as fuck in front of Mushroom War survivors/humans. Seriously he probably knows even Marcy is half human and Simon full human, but never bothered to go behind the Simon and Marcy story.
well that's a problem with his "character" (or lack off) then. rebecca made Susan Strong because finn desired to have a family, it sucks that shit writers can't continue what another writer's done and keep things consistent.
I got the impression that something happened to the connection because her lab was having a meltdown
Speaking of which, it was cool seeing PB trying to do something so nice for BMO
This is the first 22 minute episode Adventure Time has ever done. Normally they have two 11 minute episodes they combine (Mortal Folly/Recoil, Holly Jolly 1 and 2, so on) but this was just the one episode The More You Moe, The Moe You Know. That's really weird. I din't watch it on TV, did it even have a commercial break in the middle?
What a weird distinction for them to make. Maybe the title card designers were feeling lazy and were like "Fuck it, we're doing one card and that's the best you're getting" so the show just left it at that.
Anyone else seen this?
I can't really decide if I like it or not, but that fluid Jake at the start gives me a hankering for days gone by. Finn sounds different from his S1 self too, wonder what's up with that.
I thought his balls dropped at that point, isn't that why they got Jeremy in the first place?
Though this was probably done years before the series began airing so you could be right, yeah.
Why is modern AT so fucking cringeworthy? Holy shit, it's downright autistic
not that good of an episode but bmo was alright, i feel like they're shying away way too much from finn and jake and its pissing me off.
gimme some main story
Weren't those those things that turned out to pretty much be nuclear bombs or something of the sort?
They only appeared in The Cooler before the BMO special, and I don't remember anything pointing to them being nuclear weapons or anything "conventional" like that, but rather man-made defense creatures like the Gumball Guardians.
I just watched the episode and I really don't get the hate for it. It wasn't pretentious like the S6 "feely" backstory episodes were, but rather comfy and well thought. It was a bit oddly paced, that's probably the only criticism I have towards it. Also really loved the connection to the Sleeping Fire Giants.
It seems much more like Bonnie needs to reinstall herself in her kingdom first. Also there's literally no reason to call his relationship with Marcy friendzone, as both made it clear years ago they're just great friends.
What I'm thinking is that the writers are saying Finn couldn't possibly imagine what both of them have been through because of his short lifespan, so they just cut him off from them so their BFF relationship can grow further. He can't help them with their "baggage" so the writers remove him from the equation (which is horseshit)
It's a dirty shot to him for me. The guy takes time out of his day to serve or hang with them wether it be a quest or a jam session, but then they shove him to the side like he couldn't possibly comprehend their feelz and stuff.
I didn't talk about this because it really doesn't seem clear at this point. I just wanted to point out that she nonetheless has more important things going on in her head right now and that there's no friendzone between Finn and Marcy.
Nah its clear at this point. I Also don't think Finn see's her as a crush anymore either. If he did he would of totally asked if she wanted help with the 100th problem she caused at her kingdom.
I'm glad too. I've been a Fubblegum shipper for years now, but it's just something that wouldn't work out anyway. Finn needs adventures and a girl like FP, without this time acting like a horny betafag.
what's the matter my friend, is the shipping blending you?
Tie between Marcelin's closet and Lemonhope.
Favourite season was when Finn and FP were still together, maybe because I was just most invested back then (there were some bad episodes tho)
This one was nice, as expected of Herpich and Wolfhard. Some interesting themes without feeling muddled or directionless, some good laughs.
Loved the whole grampa schtick.
I liked the episode, really chill and I connected with it because of the personal shit I'm going through right now.
Can't wait for us to see BMO beam Moe's memory backup into space and find out AMO's secret was, maybe he was a reprogrammed weapon?
I have only three big complaints for this episode (one is more aimed towards a general direction taken for the show since season 3 or 4):
1) The animation felt completely dull and static. This is not just true for this episode, but also for the last seasons. The backgrounds were mostly reused from the previous episodes like Be More. What I think it really missed is some sense of dynamism. Maybe it wasn't really necessary, but the lack of it was pretty noticeable.
2) There is something about All-MO's origins that feels weird. If all the bots went nuts and destroyed themselves, then why DMO and AMO are still alive?
3) Didn't really like the rainbow self realization thing. I'm just annoyed from the fact the authors have to shoehorn this culture in every episode. It's completely fine once or twice in a while, but after seeing that stuff so many it starts to feel weird.
Overall it was a very good episode. Strangely enough I enjoyed it more than Stakes. BMO is such a lovable character compared to Marceline that makes me want to slap her dumb face everytime she has one of her stupid existential crisis.
>If all the bots went nuts and destroyed themselves, then why DMO and AMO are still alive?
AMO was the one that sent the virus, it makes sense he'd protect himself from it. DMO presumably damaged before AMO sent the virus to the other MO's there's also a chance he was reprogrammed since AMO had all of Moe's knowledge.
How was it pretentious? Can you please stop complaining for the sake of complaining without any actual tangible arguments?
If you don't like it then fine, watch something else. Jesus Christ.
I thought it was in line with rest of the S7 episodes they aired. Not really philosophical crazy, had some adventure and it was overall fun but with a bittersweet twist.
How can anyone hate BMO?
>taking the worst bait of this thread
come one guys
You're all just delusional fucks hoping for the second coming of Christ during this season just to forget the cancerous last one. Not only was this double episode pretentious, it also showed the same 3deep5u mindset everyone complained about in the last season, with a ridiculous twist at the end just to make the faggot hipster cocks cum again.
It was probably one of the better season 7 episodes, and I don't even like S7 all that much.
Had it's flaws but was still pretty good.
I didn't like the BMO rainbow thing but that doesn't mean I think the entire episode was nothing but a pretentious pile of shit.
>fuzzy grampa Moe built weapons of mass destruction
It's possible, sometimes they throw out one last episode anywhere from like December 10-20th or something, but usually they just dish out one for December and leave it at that so I think this is it for the year.
I stopped watching back on January, but I heard about Stakes and looked up Everything Stays. I hate to be dramatic, but it did genuinely bring a tear to my eye. It just might be time to catch back up.
I like Jontron.
I also like Adventure Time
And I also like Homestuck.
And I also Like Endtown.
And I also Like Steven Universe
And I also like It Hurts.
I love and enjoy so much stuff...
You know damn well that enjoying things isn't allowed here!
>not having a pixiv account by now
>Adult Time 4 is out
>Adult Time Mini Finn hungry for PB's puss and people were bothered
>Adult Time 4 Marceline hungry for Finn's dick and people won't judge
Porn is porn I guess
Actually that went better than I expected. I even wasn't annoyed by BMO not a second. Wish there was more like this instead of Running from Bugs with Marceline and PB.
So picrelated basically? Except Mo went into his own hobby world trying to forget everything he did. Also it means these weren't just bombs, but actual Metal Gears. Gotta see them in action.
*sigh* And of course Finn won't be tempted to look into Mo's memories even a little bit before it gets sent to space.
BTW was he also into genetic modification thing? Or it's for robot security measures?
Natashi and Emily Partridge definitely like this weird shit.
The others may be a little bit concerned about these things, since they are a misinterpretation of the actual show.
Pen would not give a shit about it.

I love this
Just thought about the AT S7 bingo again. Let's see what happened
Didn't think of this one. And I can't get any reasons why it would be impossible.
So they weren't satisfied with r34 after one episode?
As much as it would be nice to see Guardian Angel again it'll probably be something totally different.
Though she was featured in The Suitor two years back so they haven't completely forgotten she exists, but I still find it unlikely.
>tfw the CN advertisment policy is so bad even the leaker didn't know about the half hour special
fuck you too
Not sure if Jake already cooked or not, also the guy who made this didn't think the snail part well.
A few technicalities that could be added.
Finn technically got a new sword with that stake sword, and Jake saved Finn after catapulting him at the Vampire King. I don't know if there's anything that would count PB and Marceline fighting, so no Bingo, I guess.
I know he's getting taller but his height is all over the place. Now if he'd be as tall as PB or grow even taller than her I'll be surprised
Someone said in a previous thread that Bonnie would specifically program the PBot to not like interacting with Finn or go as far to avoid him at all times.
Just boarders being inconsistent with Finn's height.
And I dunno she could show up and cause confusion among the Candy people or something. Has there already been an episode with a PB impersonator? I can't recall one.
>Has there already been an episode with a PB impersonator?
We Fixed A Truck
>BMO wanting to kill the real PB
>That female Banana Guard pinching Banana a Man's ass at the end while everyone smiles and waives
Man this episode was good.
Quite honestly my favorite S7 episode so far. Those were some unprecedented feels, they should have hyped it up more ahead of time.
>1.20 million viewers
All those ads we had in the last couple of weeks really paid of, thanks Cartoon Network
I don't have a TV anymore so I can't see the promos. I knew about it because actively searched when the new episode would come out though.
But yes CN is really awful at advertising their own shows
I know that /co/ in general has been suffering from low activity, but AT literally died here during this week. It's not even because of the S7 episodes (which were all pretty devent), but because of CN's bad schedule and lack of ads, and it's really bothering me because they know they're killing the franchise.
Oh come on, I'm sure it's doing fine. We just need to get through the year, and I'm sure things will really pick up during 2016.
You're probably right, but it's what killed the big AT hype in the first place, and not the supposedly bad S6. CN shows in general are getting fucked up by it, while the execs are looking for other reasons for why the general ratings dropped like a stone thrown at the sea.
>Still no Porpoise episode
fuck this shit
Yeah, "President Porpoise is Missing" is the title. As it was like the second or third confirmed episode I really hoped to see it before 2016. Seems like we won't get it any soon tho
Some of these are horrible. If you're going to include "Jake cooks something" you may as well add in "character sits on a chair". Also, you and I both know Jake and Lady won't break up.
>every time I've turned on the TV no matter what time of day it's either Gumball or Teen Titans GO.
>have free time at hotel
Why does CN hate it's other shows? Do those snot nosed brats with horrible teeth who post those videos really like TTGo that much? I'd rather have a Scooby Do marathon for 6 days straight over this.
I just caught up. How did /co/ react? I thought it was really, really good. The best AT has put out in a long time.
Anyone make a Scott Pilgrim thing yet?
Regular Show was also new everyday, this week.
Episodes were pretty good.
>How did /co/ react?
Mostly positively. Some people complained about the pacing and the resolution, others said the vampires appeared too little and some of them were defeated too easily. Most people complained about Finn and Jake jobbing and the terrible song in The Empress Eyes.
AT has "jokey" songs all the time that are usually fun, but this one seemed pretty serious. It was Marcy pouring her heart out to IK trying to get him out from under Empress' spell, it wasn't exactly happy go lucky and stuff.
The lyrics were also pretty crap, tempo was awkward and grating, and the transitioning was poor. Plus that 'muh muh memories' part was shit.
By far the worst AT song/little ditty in recent memory.
Stakes Ep 8, she's back in the kingdom at the end after Crunchy the Unforgiving took down KOO.
That doesn't seem different from HJS or Lemonhope. There's precedent for two parters done by the same team. According to jmoyns the network sets a limit on the amount of two-partners they can do, which is really funny since the episodes are heavily connected now in general, anyway.
This episode is closer to Lemonhope. They are two-parters written by a single couple of stoyboard artist, while other two-parters in the same show may have one different pair per episode/part. I think one pair of storyboarders working on a two-parter is way better than see different pair working on them, mostly because you can see there is no risk they are going somewhere else with the main plot of said two-parter.
I'm confused about that guy's existence. Why did he look so humanoid -- where there any other candy people like him? Did PB create him or just his great great grandparents sometime in the past? Do candy people reproduce sexually among themselves?
He was a candy person from candy kingdom but it didn't seem like PB had ever met him. That's weird given suggestions of how she has absolute control over all the inhabits of the kingdom. Have we ever seen a candy baby that was just born?
Probably. But it's impressive how there aren't that many outright contradictions in the lore. Maybe it's just because it's all so vague. It's like a maze that keeps getting bigger and bigger but they never allow it to hit a dead end, so you can never ever call them out on an error. For autists who need to have encyclopedic knowledge of their shows, this one is a nightmare trip.
The me-me-me-memories bit has to be the most awkward AT moment yet.
>anybody thinking season 6 was good with that horribly anti-climactic finale
it's like they deliberately found the worst possible way to ruin the entire season. There was no excuse for how shitty it was.
Decent episode, with the exception of AMO's voice actor doing an absolutely terrible job.
His "actual voice" voice actor of course.
There's an episode storyboarded by a guest writer where it doesn't appear. Other than that I really don't know either why the guy who made it included the snail part, I just posted it.
finn is gona level up one way or another, you cant just stop gaining experience its just not how RPG's work
He isn't going anywhere and isn't gaining shit. All his friends have some sort of badass powers and when he gets something that makes him more powerful they take it away from him.
After what he's done as a kid the writers think he should hang up his hero sword and be a cashier at the Squeezy Mart.
>is a man and suddenly gets the world
You mean he finally becomes a legendary hero like Billy despite being a human or gets the context of why the writers shoveled shit on him for 2 seasons?
kek, that's probably what will happen.
>mfw finished the main points of my ambitious fancomic
>haven't drawn anything for almost 6 years now, but I was pretty good at it before
>start drawing the first scene
>looks like fucking shit
well, I fell like there won't be any comic anytime soon.
You clearly have never seen Adult Time 1 yet. It perfectly depicts them as how they should be.
In an alternate near future (around the time Finn is 22) the Candy Kingdom has become kind of an authoritarian, dystopian state after Bonnie went completely nuts since a special incident. Finn now tries to be a hero in the CK, helping residents against the state and rampant criminality, and he wants to turn it into what was before PB got insane. He lives there with Marcy, whose life also got shit and now is an alcoholic.
I fully admit it isn't extremely creative, but I always wanted to make a story about the AT universe with a darker undertone and a more mature and adult Finn, also because those more adult points won't ever be treated in the actual show.
Not when she's made of gum anon.
Things we can expect:
> Finn and Jake will be shown to be specifically useless
> BMO will have a revealed lesbian relationship
> At least five minutes of dialogue relying entirely on non-sequiturs to give the illusion of wit and depth
> One off-rhythm song with discordant electronic boops in the background
> A hollow attempt at feeling undone by the fact that AT writers think stilted nonsense is a substitute for realistic dialogue
Fubble was based until they turned PB into a cold cunt and Finn into a horny sadist
I really didn't like PB until she slowly became the mad cold cunt and badass two gun Bonnie she is now. Nowadays she's probably my favourite character. Fubble was way more interesting back then though, I just hope Finn will stop being a beta anytime soon and fuck her
or tell her to fuck off and get another based girl
So, I've forgotten everyone's names already, but what was up with the King dancing with that cow and sucking that other vampire's tooth out.
Was he just legit insane or something?
I-I kinda thought the bite/stab with Marci was kinda hot oh god help me I don't want to feel this.
I liked her bubbly, mad scientist self in the earlier seasons. People don't like it because of her personality being a trope or cliche, but most people don't care if it's done right (from Frozen, to Call of Duty, etc.)
I don't know why they refuse to have Finn lend an ear to Bubblegum or Marceline's past problems. Drives me up the wall man.
Her being an overused trope is also the main reason why I didn't really like her in earlier seasons, but I don't like most of the princess cliche characters either.
>I don't know why they refuse to have Finn lend an ear to Bubblegum or Marceline's past problems. Drives me up the wall man.
I don't know either, it would be a perfect way to show Finn confronted to the actual world and to make him more mature.
PB going from happy princess into cold dictator is a trope in itself too, though. The trope doesn't define wether the character/show is good or bad, it's the writing.
That said, I still liked antagonist Bubblegum as seasons went on, but preferred early seasons PB instead. Just a matter of preference I guess.
Does anybody know where I can grab the bonus featurettes from the iTunes release of "Stakes"? I don't have ten bucks in Apple Money to splurge on the season pass for the series to get the whole miniseries and the Season Only content.
