Are you searching for a present that washes over you in tiny, bite-sized morsels of magic however, on the similar time, scratches a deep itch for complexity and thriller? Then come together with me.

By the numbers, Adventure Time is a monster of a present: clocking in at 10 seasons and 283 episodes, it might sound daunting at first. But with every of these episodes lasting lower than twelve minutes, it’s oh really easy to seek out your self urgent play for “only one extra.” Heck, you may get by way of 5 within the time it takes to look at only one installment of The Wire. (Which, by the way, you must also positively be bingeing).

And the actual pleasure comes from simply how rapidly you’ll be able to sprint by way of these episodes since you by no means know what you’re going to seek out subsequent.

Created by Pendleton Ward in 2010, the present expanded to deal with a big and immensely proficient inventive group (lots of whom went on to discovered their very own groundbreaking sequence, together with Steven Universe and Over the Garden Wall).

This variety of sturdy inventive voices makes for one of many extra fascinating parts of Adventure Time — its variability of favor and artistry from one episode to the following. The foundations are at all times rock regular, however the instructions it’s keen to journey for a scant twelve minutes are sometimes shocking and at all times pleasant. Maybe you’ll get a noir-style hunt for a lacking sock. Maybe you’ll examine in on the dominion of lemon individuals voiced solely by Rick and Morty’s Justin Roiland. Maybe you’ll get a world-shattering, paradigm-shifting glimpse into the previous that deepens the lore of the present’s universe in a manner you by no means even knew you have been lacking.

Each is simply as doubtless.

And that’s extremely thrilling — by no means actually understanding what you’re entering into every time you press play. It’s a beautiful, light form of worldbuilding that takes you by the hand and expands your understanding of the present’s universe – each its literal and religious secrets and techniques – in methods you’ll be able to by no means fairly anticipate.

But each once in a while, it actually wallops you. And these are the moments through which Adventure Time is at its best possible.

That’s to not say that it’s not at all times good. Because it’s. It’s all however remarkable to return throughout an episode that doesn’t allure and delight and shock you in a roundabout way. But generally (and also you by no means know fairly when) a very game-changing episode comes up, one which expands the lore and explains one thing you by no means even knew was a thriller, and it’s at all times an exceptional expertise.

Even extra phenomenal is the present’s finale. A prerequisite for the proper binge is, in fact, a satisfying ending. Never thoughts the truth that Adventure Time is coming again for a handful of specials on HBO Max. Those are all supplemental to the 2018 finale, which is immensely satisfying.

It’s so satisfying, the truth is, that I wrote a complete essay on it.

Of course, if you happen to’re right here since you‘re contemplating bingeing this present for the primary time, it is best to most likely keep away from this essay in any respect prices, as a result of it spoils the whole lot. While we’re at it, you must also positively keep away from this much more in-depth essay I wrote concerning the evolution of Ice King, the present’s greatest character, whose step by step unraveling story makes for the present’s most heartfelt and intriguing moments.

If you wish to dive straight into that intrigue, there’s one thing to be stated for beginning a number of seasons in. Specifically, there’s one thing to be stated for beginning with “I Remember You,” the penultimate episode of season 4. This episode marks the primary of a sequence of outstanding episodes that epitomize the emotional depth, in depth lore, and razor-sharp writing the present aged gracefully into, proper in the meanwhile it started ageing extra quickly.

It’s not a requirement, and it could even be technically breaking the foundations of the normal binge (ssh!) however you probably have even a passing familiarity with the present and wish to dive straight in the place the motion begins and the present ‘s best expertise are on show, that’s the place to begin. And then when you’re properly and actually hooked, you’ll be able to flip again to the primary seasons and see the place the whole lot got here from. (Or in order for you an inventory of important early episodes, come see me. I’ll hook you up).

However you select to get there, when you attain the candy spot of this present, there’s no getting out. It will envelop you in its magic, daring you to uncover its mysteries and assuring you each step of the best way that it’s all going to be okay.
