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.
There are technically special features, but they're pretty underwhelming -- short blurbs about a handful of recurring characters in the form of a picture and a short block of text.
Themed DVDs like this are, from what I understand, pretty standard for children's cartoons, but hopefully we'll see a full season release in the near future with, jeeze, commentary or something, I don't know.
Short version: The show is worth five-stars, as any fan will tell you, but this DVD release is closer to a miss than a hit. It's worth buying only if it convinces men in ties that a full release will make money, but once full season releases appear, there's nothing to recommend this little guy.
EDIT: As the full first-season release has appeared, there is now nothing to recommend this little fellow. Just buy up the Season 1 DVD as soon as possible so we can keep getting full-season releases!
I'm an adult fan of the show. I learned about it from my teenage son and haven't seen all of them like he has. So I pretty much got this just to enjoy with him and delve into some of the episodes I may have missed. It is fun looking for the snail and other hidden things within each episode.
This disc, as others have said, is pretty bare-bones. Half-episodes presented out of order, excerpted from both seasons 1 and 2. The video quality is decent, though the fact that is a DVD limits this in terms of detail and compression artifacts. It appears that the picture is somewhat over-sharpened to compensate, as there are ringing artifacts around edges. The only extra is a set of character facts about the main characters, most of which are obvious if you watch the show (though I think it also contains a mistake re: PB's age). Note also that the disc is finicky when I play it in my computer. Sometimes the disc doesn't load, sometimes it can't play certain parts. And I've tried it in two different optical drives, so I think it is due to how the disc was mastered.
I primarily bought this disc in order to show support for the series and encourage Cartoon Network to produce full series releases in both DVD and Blu-ray formats. I think this show would really shine on Blu-ray, as it is produced in 1080i resolution and the scenes contain a ton of small details that are blurred in the DVD release. The series also ought to be presented in episode order, as there are a lot of small details that can be gleaned from the backgrounds and plot points of each episode, which all together build up hints of the larger back-story to the series.
Get on this, Cartoon Network! I need me my Blu-ray releases!
This DVD feels like it was just thrown together in ten seconds and pushed onto shelves. It's $10 though, at that price, and the fact it's Adventure Time, I'd say its well worth it for any fan. Since the story isn't really pinned down, this would be a great video to lend to friends. Maybe later on down the road CN will realize they could profit from putting the seasons on DVD. Until then; I'm just glad CN got off their high-horse and allowed them to push out a 'DVD'. Baby steps.
