The “Stakes” mini-series was such a hit that Adventure Time decided to do more, back to back! This week, Brad, JUSTIN, and Kevin dive into the first half of the “Islands” mini-series as Finn ventures off to find out where he came from.
On the way, they encounter some interesting creatures and some downright bizarre Islands, one of which Brad theorizes may have inspired another Pendelton Ward project. Continue reading Flooping the Pig – Episode 71: “Whipple”
Brad, JUSTIN, and Kevin converge to discuss the importance of direct communication, an episode that rivals “Dream of Love” for one of the least enjoyed, the perplexing choice to bring back James Baxter, and a deeper look into the elemental concept. Continue reading Flooping the Pig – Episode 70: “James”
Brad, JUSTIN, and Kevin delve into the “real” Season 7 finale, where we get a heavy tease of Susan Strong’s origin and the potential of discovering where Finn comes from.
From there, Finn is forced to confront himself (literally), resulting in the hosts discussing the concept of Last Thursdayism, “The Good Place”, and “Future Man” to explain the concept of two Finns.
Finally, the second Finn comes to terms with being an individual, as the real Finn fails to take over for Doctor Princess (who is not an actual PhD recipient?!) Continue reading Flooping the Pig – Episode 69: “Fern”
This batch of episodes introduces us to the idea of Elementals, and who the supposed elementals in the modern timeline are.
Other topics on the docket include Ice King’s gender swapped world receiving the Graybles treatment, the power of music attempting to cheer up Finn, and Jake bonding with his daughter to try and reconcile with his past. Comparisons to wrestling and the Office are brought up, and Brad forgot to watch an episode! Continue reading Flooping the Pig – Episode 68: “Patience”
Lady Rainicorn’s history, the return of the Spiky Village and Box Kingdom, the Finn Sword gets smashed, Finn and Flame Princess making amends, and TAFKA Magic Man – this episode has it all! It was so nice the gang recorded it twice, or at least that is Kevin’s excuse. Continue reading Flooping the Pig – Episode 67: “Lee”
Before Season 8 began, Jake and Finn followed around a frog hoping to see him put on a crown! Our hosts tackle those shorts, and the first three episodes of the Season 8, which brings us inside of a different crown (Ice King’s), Finn being forced to face his judgments, with a particularly interesting view on Princess Bubblegum, and a bizarre alternate universe episode. Continue reading Flooping the Pig – Episode 66: “Life”
The Season 7 finale – or is it? Some heavy episodes are featured this week, with two of them being all time favorites of Brad and Justin! On top of the stories, the hosts try to figure out the alternate reality timelines and what happened in both (or neither), what happened in ones mind versus reality, Finn’s growth as a character, and a lighter “finale” episode featuring the Banana Guards! Continue reading Flooping the Pig – Episode 65: “Bertrum”
Season 7 coverage continues, with our hosts finding a lot of interesting parallels from these episodes to other television shows (Community and The Office) and real life current events (Infowars and Sheltering in Place). A major story piece takes place centered around the Ice King’s crown, and we see the only stop-motion animated episode of Adventure Time ever!
Continue reading Flooping the Pig – Episode 64: “Monsoonami”
As the hosts continue on to Season 7, they discuss the second holiday two part episode, BMO’s gender identity, some enjoyable albeit not so crucial episodes that include learning more about Jake’s daughter Viola and the random return of Me-Meow, and the very puzzling, purposeless President Porpoise episode.
Continue reading Flooping the Pig – Episode 63: “Cybil”
Discussion of the “Stakes” mini-series concludes, with thoughts on the format, and the possible overall importance of the story to the rest of the series. Continue reading Flooping the Pig – Episode 62: “Moon”
