The land of Ooo is a wonderful blend of fantasy tropes and adventuring cliche (in a good way), cleverly wrapped in a post-apocalyptic world where magic has reappeared. That isn't really part of the story, but it's a setting that could easily have fallen out of a particularly irreverent Dungeons & Dragons campaign. I sometimes wish I could live in Ooo.
Finn and Jake thwart evil and face peril, but generally seem like pretty easy-going folks. In fact, all of the inhabitants of Ooo seem extremely happy most of the time. To be a hero in Ooo seems like a sweet life, and maybe that's what lures an older audience to the show. Living in an awesome tree house and fighting monsters seems like a way better life than working for rent money.
The show is awesome. This DVD is somewhat less so, unfortunately.
I got this DVD in the mail today, and it contains 12 episodes of Adventure Time. That doesn't mean 12 half-hour(ish) television-length episodes, this is just 12 seemingly random segments, clocking around 14 minutes each. I know that the chronology of a show like this one doesn't really matter too much, but these episodes don't appear in any particular order, and the quantity is a little lacking.
Rather than a full first-season release, we're getting roughly half of that here. I pre-ordered it as soon as I found out about it, and for ten bucks, it's not a bad deal -- but this is a DVD made for parents to give to their children to watch on car rides, not for the slightly ashamed adult viewers who love the show and want to have creator commentary and tons of goodies.Read more ›
It's much more than a children's cartoon. Its enjoyable for all ages, it has an almost surreal humor about it that makes enough sense for you to follow and keep track of it's epic plots. In all that's really the best word to describe the show: epic.
The epic characters that are actually realistic in their traits and personalities, characters that go through lessons that shows don't normally teach. The storylines pack so much detail, action, and wonderful dialouge in those epic fifteen minutes of airtime. The world of Ooo and beyond that these talented storyboardists and cartoonists have created are nothing but absolutely fantastic.
Overall it's hilarious, interesting, silly, and wonderful if you just would like to smile. I'd recommend it to anyone and I would do absolutely anything for a full season of this "mathematical" show on DVD.

S01E04a "Ricardio the Heart Guy"
S01E01b "Trouble in Lumpy Space"
S01E02b "Tree Trunks"
S02E20a "The Pods"
S02E24b "The Limit"
S02E23b "Go with Me"
S02E14b "The Eyes"
S02E19a "The Chamber of Frozen Blades"
S02E18b "To Cut a Woman's Hair"
Personally, I plan on holding out until they release the entire season on DVD.
I don't fully understand. Frederator has their animatics, production art, backgrounds, character designs, etc. available online. One of the writers even posts the chords to the show's songs. There's plenty of readily-available material that could have been included. I guess they're holding out for the season-by-season collections? I hope?
EDIT (April 2012):
User Mushi has notified me that Season 1 is on the way: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007Q0JJHC

Sigh... It's only got 12 1/2-length episodes, so about twelve minutes each, or 6 full length episodes pulled from seasons one and two. I probably would have bought this if they took it more seriously and didn't treat it like the Chowder series. Still, it's less then fifteen bucks, so it's not... Read More
