All Episodes Thread

Given the lack of responses for individual episode threads, I thought an all-purpose topi should be set up. In case you haven't heard, new episodes run all week on Cartoon Network at 8:00.

All week. And I didn't find out until I stumbled across the news on AVClub.

 

So . . .  what is the general take on "Bonnie And Neddy"? For me, it's interesting to see Bubblegum's origin story, and how it relates to her brother, who is a vital link to the Candy Kingdom. It may take a while to get used to King Of Ooo as the kingdom's new princess. He comes across as a huckster, with more in common with Finn's absentee dad than a credible ruler.

It was interesting to see more of Princess Bubblegum's backstory but I didn't find it compelling.

Is it me, or should Bubblegum and Marceline be considered "Ooo's Finest"? They have a vibe like Superman and Batman, in the sense that they're from different worlds, and they don't team up that often, but it's pretty awesome when they do. Makes a person forget about King of Ooo in Bonnie's nightgown. Brrrrrrr.

So, the King of Ooo is crazy, in addition to a grafter? Interesting.

This must be the season they cover Princess Bubblegum's backstory. I had forgotten they knew each other for so long.

No King Of Ooo today. Just Anne Heche as Cherry Cream Soda, still grieving over the loss of her Root Beer Guy, even after she married Starchy. Then RBG comes back to life. Things get complicated quickly . . . though what sticks in my head is Princess Bubblegum creating both RBG and CCS, then immediately marrying them to each other. No wonder she objected to King of Ooo marrying Tree Trunks and Mr. Pig . . . she's the one that does the wedding, dammit, and she does 'em quick!

I didn't realize how much about this show I'd forgotten! Starchy's a real bad-ass with those digging implements.

Caught the latest episode. King of Ooo --still raiding Bubblegum's wardrobe --  sends Finn & Jake out  to retrieve a giant flying mushroom. The symbolism went over my head until I read the AVClub review. Anyway, our heroes wind up messing around with Canyon (Billy's ex), fight a giant hive-mushroom, and subsequently get fired by KOO for their failure. Oh, and the Banana Guard almost get KOO killed. Wouldn't have been a great loss if they succeeded.

OK, so what was the symbolism? :-)

KPoO survived? He looked dead to me, but I need a new TV and cataract surgery.

P.S. That was a VERY educational mushroom!

Weird episode tonight. BMO switches places with his mirror image, the one we've "seen" in two of the Greybles episodes. While "Football" explores her* new environment, BMO is stuck in reflective surfaces, with no apparent way out. It's a little disturbing. You have to wonder if Finn and Jake do the right thing by letting their little buddy have what could be a massive breakdown.

 

Also: in a few weeks? "Stakes." Should be fun.

He's rubbing the back of his head at the very end of the episode, so he definitely alive. It would have been funny if that been how he was written out of the show though.

Bumping up . . . the "Stakes" storyline starts Monday night at 8, with back-to-back episodes running through Thursday. Cartoon Network will air the miniseries in full on Friday night at 7 p.m.

 

ETA: Interesting . . . Marceline was a vampire hunter who inhaled remnants of her slain and acquired their powers. Also interesting to see other humans in the flashbacks. I keep forgetting that Finn is more of less the last human alive on Ooo (discounting Simon, of course). And we got another sitcom theme song covered! Anybody want to bet on what Marceline will sing next?

I too found it...lacking... I can't think of the word I want. But! I also think with the way this show has a tendency to slow burn, I wonder if the "more of PB's backstory" we got here was really just teaser, less so than actual reveal.

Why have I taken so long to start watching this show? It's great!

 

Loved the 'stakes' arc. Marceline and Bubblegum are such a cute couple.

I'm a recent convert as well, coming on board a few seasons ago. While I may not be into the massive mytharcs, the general goofiness and adult winks are more than enough to  keep me coming back.

 

Is Marceline's father a demon? If so, is that how she can suck individual vampires' powers after she's dusted them?

 

ETA: I guess the status quo had to be preserved. Marceline is destined to be a vampire, living forever with Bubblegum while Finn and Jake die and turn to dust. Also, Bubblegum is set to get her kingdom back. I kinda think the homestead life suited her, being away from her subjects, but a status quo had to be restored. And King Of Ooo was revealed to be a blob of ear wax, which . . . ew.

 

ETA2: Friendly reminder . . . if you missed any of "Stakes," CN will be running two hours' worth of fun starting at 7 p.m. tomorrow night.

Marceline's father is Hunson Aberdeen, the demon who runs the Nightosphere. He can suck souls, which is what Marceline does to the vamps after killing them, absorbing their power.

She's always been my favorite character. I loved this arc. And I've been watching this since the second season with my 8 year old. Well...he was 3-4 at the time of the second season and liked the animation. I kept watching for the story, because I'm a sucker for a cool post-apocalyptic world.

Bumping up because a new episode -- "Summer Showers" -- will be running on Thursday.

 

ETA: Anybody else compare Lumpy Space Princess to Cat Grant from Supergirl? Man, what a bitch. I can see where she's coming from, since she's not Bubblegum, but she's such a pain in the ass to deal with. I whole-heartedly support Viola teleporting her to the Ice Kingdom in order to fill in for Tree Trunks in LSP's drama set in "Ing Land." Oh, and Finn looked "over it" in the audience. And next week? Stop-motion. Should be fun.

 

ETA2: Actually, there's going to be a week's worth of episodes heading our way.

That was fun.

 

Jake is simultaneously a terrible father (putting tons of pressure on Viola to validate himself as a parent) and a great father (being just as pumped that she ran the effects as if she was the lead). So now we've visited with Jake Jr, TV, Kim Kil Whan and Viola. Just waiting for Charlie to get her own episode.

Just checking to see if anybody has seen "Angel Face" and "President Porpoise Is Missing!" What can we take from those two episodes? Well, BMO's imagination never quits. Cats grow bigger in Ooo if Me-Mow is any indication. And the treehouse is the place to hang out without Finn and Jake suspecting anybody's presence.

I laughed every time Jake winced after being kicked by BMO's spurs. Also, sentient sandwiches were weird even for this show.

Just watched Blank Eyed Girl.

 

To quote Finn "What. The Junk. Was That?"

 

I'm a little glad to know that every so often Finn is as weirded out by what is going on as the viewer is. Not BMO though.

Anybody else saw the latest episodes? "King's Ransom" looks to be a game-changer, with Betty adjusting Ice King's crown. I forgot she has Magic Man's powers, so it's not impossible. Also, we got to see foxes in action. Anytime I see a fox on this show, I think of the Cartoon Network Africa parody of "What Does The Fox Say?," using AT animation.

 

ETA: In case anybody missed "Stakes" . . . Cartoon Network will be running it from 6-8 p.m. on Monday night.

Checking to see who else saw "Crossover." In case you missed it . . . Finn and Jake get summoned by Prismo and are sent to the alternate world where Finn possessed Ice King's crown and wound up summoning the Lich. It was an episode that was weird yet poignant. Also, Prismo has a boss. Any ideas on what that character would be?

I was intrigued by this whole thing. Then again, I'm a sucker for the episodes that do seem to throw back and forward and go all multiversey and such. It's like, there's a long con here and I know it, and I love it.

No idea about who Prismo's boss might be. Assuming someone/thing we've never heard of yet.

Prismo's boss must be someone far more powerful then him. I don't think we've encountered a character like that yet. Maybe an entity like the Purple Comet?

 

Any I loved this episode. I love all the episodes that hit me right in the feels. You could hear the longing in Finn's voice when he saw Farmworld Finn with his family. Meanwhile all Jake cares about is how dumb Farmworld Jake is. "Woof woof woof, I eat stuff off the ground!"

 

What are dogs even into these days?

We're in six seasons. I think CN won't dump the show.

 

"The Hall Of Egress" was a bit of a thinker. I might have to view the episode again to fully bask in its layers.

I totally forgot about this show (I thought it was no longer on, actually) and only totally stumbled upon tonight's by accident. Wow, I am going to have to ponder "The Hall Of Egress" and watch it again.

Checking to see who else saw "The Thin Yellow Line." Basically, the Banana Guard has talents. Just not in the realm of guarding. I liked the commenter on the AVClub review saying that Princess Bubblegum had to repeat to herself that she wasn't going to dissect Guardsman #39. Also: Finn and Jake undercover. Very cute.

Nor much else, for that matter.

 

I'm going to have to refresh my memory on why Penny was inside Simon's memory and what had become of her since her first appearance. I love how this show has a continuity to it.

Just watched "Don't Look"

 

So Finn sees PB as a teenage boy?

 

I guess it's supposed to mean that he no longer sees her as a crush, and their relationship is more casual and comfortable? Like he sees her as an equal or a peer... Maybe?

 

Or maybe it was just weird.

 

Really heartwarming that he sees Ice King as Simon and BMO as a little angel. Really wish we could've seen some other characters in this one though, would've been enlightening to see Marcy or Flame Princess as Finn sees them.

On Demand may be faster since depending on your provider it may be available now, or tomorrow. Otherwise it'll be reaired next weekend, after the next new one.

They're playing new eps on Saturday nights at 21:00 until mid-April, then switching back to Thursday nights.

 

I'm not sure how to process last night's new ones. The heavy allergy meds do not help.

They seem to be doing a whole hour of Adventure Time on Saturdays now. The repeat of of the previous week's new episode has been at the start of the 1/2 hour (3rd episode in the hour).

I'm caught up. Mystified as to why Lady's parents would be using their translator devices in flashbacks. I thought they only broke those out when they met Finn and Jake. And "Beyond The Grotto" was trippy. Well, trippier than usual.

 

Ubiquitous . . . I don't think Jake's kids have gotten the spotlight recently. I think the focus has spread out amongst those five since "Jake the Dad."

I wondered about them using the translator device as well. Maybe we've forgotten something.

 

Maybe it's the order I am seeing them, but I've seen three eps about them this month. One with the magic sandwich, another in which his corporate son bought the tree house and evicted Finn and Jake, and a third with one of his daughters auditioning for Princess Lumpy's play. Very strange.

It's just your viewing order, or maybe they specifically scheduled a bunch of episodes about Jake's puppies?

 

Anyway, there's only been 5 episodes about Jake's puppies, 6 if you count the one where they are born. And only 2 per season.

 

Jake the Dad - Season 5, Episode 6 (aired 1/7/2013) - Where the puppies are born

 

One Last Job - Season 5, Episode 23 (aired 6/10/2013) - Where Jake has to save Jake Jr. when she is kidnapped.

 

Ocarina - Season 6, Episode 12 (aired 7/17/2014) - Where Kim Kil Whan buys the deed to the Tree Fort

 

The Diary - Season 6, Episode 30 (aired 2/26/2015) - Where TV finds an old diary.

 

Summer Showers - Season 7, Episode 16 (aired 1/7/2016) - Where Viola is in LSP's play.

 

Lady Rainicorn of the Crystal Dimension - Season 7, Episode 30 (aired 4/16/2016) - Where TV eats a magic sandwich and runs afoul of Lady's ex Lee.

 

Also of note: Charlie is the only one of Jake's puppies to not have a major solo appearance in an episode, and TV is the only one to have 2 major solo appearances (in The Diary, and Lady Rainicorn of the Crystal Dimension)

Interesting episode . . . Bubblegum creates a miniature version of Cinnamon Bun and gives her to CB. Bun Bun winds up freeing Flame King from his prison, and he . . .decides to rule over chipmunks. Also, Finn and Phoebe do some platonic bonding and beatboxing.

Gotta say, I do not think Phoebe is very good at freestyling.

I mean she's probably better then I am, but that's not a very high bar.

So Normal Man is King of Mars now? Ok I guess. I still prefer him as Magic Man though. He was a jerk, but such a hilarious one.

Also Finn is using the Root Sword again, I guess that means he's lost control of the Grass Sword since it tore in I Am A Sword.
