Still, season three is a slightly different beast than the first two seasons. It has evolved from relying more on surreal, at times non-sequitur humor of season one, to really developing a world and the characters. Don't get me wrong, the quirky humor is still there, but the world building that occurs over the course of the first three seasons. For a cartoon that is not above the occasional fart joke, it creates a surprisingly rich universe and compelling characters. Season three features a wide range of emotion from laugh out-loud humor, to straight faced drama, often finding a happy medium between the two. There are even episodes with few jokes which are downright unnerving, though nothing that I think most kids couldn't handle emotionally.
Unlike many cartoons that are suck in one period of time, the characters do age and learn and grow as people. Just as Finn grows older, the show has changed as well. There are episodes that simply wouldn't have happened in season one or even in season two. And the show continues to evolve. There are episodes in seasons four and five that would never have worked the same in season three.
Adventure Time may not be a show for everyone. Some people may find it too much of a fast-paced sensory overload, but it also takes its time. There are mysteries that may arise in one episode that may not be addressed until seasons later. This may be frustrating for some, but I find this aspect of the show one of the most enjoyable parts of it. It makes it worthwhile to rewatch previous episodes and look forward to what's to come.

From what I can tell, this set is very similar to the second season. It will include commentaries for all the episodes, as well as a mystery featurette (the details haven't been release on that yet). From what I've heard, Pendleton Ward and co. were trying really hard when they recorded the commentary to not have any "orange juice" moments (this was their code word for comments that were either spoilery or considered inappropriate), so I'm hoping the commentaries will be a bit better than they previously have been.
As for the show itself, this season is fantastic. While I don't think it's as good as the second or fourth season, this year was a big one for "Adventure Time"; the introduction of Fionna and Cake, the revelation of the Ice King's backstory, and various holiday episodes made this year one to be remembered. Stand-out episodes include the aforementioned specials like "Thank You", "From Bad to Worse", "Holly Jolly Secrets", and "Fionna and Cake", as well as the sorta-controversial "What Was Missing" (the birth of Bubbline), the dark installments like "The New Frontier" and "No One Can Hear You", and finally, the introduction of Flame Princess in the finale, "Incendium".
This is a treat for all "Adventure Time" fans! Buy it, and hopefully we can get the rest soon!
Adventure Time is as sonically rich as it is visually rich, and I was hoping the blu-ray release would showcase that aspect of the show.
It turns out that many Cartoon Network blu-rays (such as The Regular Show and the prior AT releases) contain only low-quality 2.0 soundtracks. Sigh.
Look, it's great to have five uninterrupted hours of Adventure Time. But this blu ray is a bummer for anybody looking for an enhanced auditory experience.
