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!

Top 10 Performances in Twin Peaks

I did the thing. I watched all of Twin Peaks. It was good. I have a handful of thoughts I am gonna share.

Self-explanatory article! The only part that needs clarification potentially is that this covers everything from the world including the film and the mini-series return. Also, like obviously someone could write this article and come up with ten different names, and it would be completely reasonable. A fourth and a fifth person probably could too. Don’t have a cow!

They are all boring and surface-level takes though!! Read Willow Maclay’s essay on Twin Peaks instead!!

Flooping the Pig – Episode 79: “Golb”

It’s taken years, and almost 80 podcasts, but it is finally time for Brad, JUSTIN, and Kevin to discuss the series finale of Adventure Time. Did the writers stick the landing? What did they think of the stories that were and were not wrapped up? JUSTIN has a Golb theory to maybe explain an unexplained story.

They also discuss what seemed like a bold choice at the time for two characters. To wrap up, the hosts reveal where Adventure Time stands amongst their favorite shows as well as their all time favorite episode.

Before all of this, the non-canonical Minecraft episode is reviewed, and was a rare instance where all three hosts came into the podcast having never seen the episode before. A historic episode of Flooping the Pig, and the longest episode to date!
