Flooping the Pig – Episode 80: “Hugo”

The HBO Max streaming service launched in May of 2020. It was announced that the service would revive Adventure Time as a new series called “Distant Lands”, which as of now is set to contain four forty minute-ish stand-alone episodes. The first of those four episodes, titled “BMO”, dropped in June 2020, which Brad, JUSTIN, and Kevin review in today’s episode. They discuss the episode itself, including their likes and dislikes, their thoughts on doing a prequel, and the possibilities of what the events in this episode could have on the remaining Distant Lands episodes. They also talk about how it does or doesn’t correlate to the Cartoon Network show.

The gang then discusses Pendleton Ward’s Netflix animated series “The Midnight Gospel.” The hosts have some conflicting thoughts on this very bizarre show, easily the most adult and difficult piece to be featured on FTP.

Flooping the Pig is going on hiatus until the second Distant Lands episode, “Obsidian”, is released, and at this time has no release date. Thanks for your patronage, and we’ll see you again for Episode 81!

Episodes Covered:

“BMO” (Distant Lands Episode 1)
