Adventure Time - Actually any good?

Of you see it on then Chowder is pretty great too. Equally mental.

OK, so 15 eps in and I agree - absolute genius.

Quite hard to put a finger on what it is about it really but the sheer randomness (and often quite dark humour) is a standout. I also like how the whole universe the show is set in (and the show itself) could easily be explained as being a young boy's active imagination - it has that sort of feeling you get when you let a six year old try to tell a coherent story, who manages to get a few lines into it before adding magic robots or other illogical add ons.

In short, it's blown my mind.

Oh and episode 15 (the one with the pranking robot) was amazing. Loved the balloons being freed from their blood oath and claiming 'Hooray, we can finally die!'. How twisted!

There are clues dotted here and there to how they all came to be. I haven't seen some of the later episodes but it expands on it even further there.

Some of the episode endings are truly random. Episode 4 from the first season - Tree Trunks - was really wtf at the end!

i watched the first episode of this the other night, whilst waiting for a pizza to be delivered... it was ******** bananas. i caught myself laughing at just how audacious it was, rather than the actual jokes... absolutely mental. if this is what kids are watching these days, it explains a lot.

Caught an episode of this with a friend last night. It was from season 5, the episode with the frisbee and Finn climbing the tree. We were in absolute stitches of laughter, need to see all of it from the beginning now.

It's genius. I'm probably half way through season 2 and have just got the missus hooked via US Netflix so rewatching the first season too.

I've barely seen any but it's ace.

I first saw it about 2 years go and it was one sort of murder mystery on a train and everyone kept dying.

Sooo, this has just broadcast it's final episode. I still have only seen a selection of episodes, but am reading a lot of chatter about the finale online. "End of my childhood" kind of stuff, people seemed to love it.
