Series Review: Adventure Time

During my time off between courses I've decided to check out a bunch of genre stuff I've been meaning to get around to - first stop - Adventure Time.

First appearing online back in 2006 by Pendleton Ward, the series was adapted to television in 2010.  It follows a human boy named Finn and his shapeshifting dog Jake.

Together they go on adventures - bizarre, Dungeon & Dragons-style adventures.  At 12 episodes in I've seen them fight zombies, vampires, other various monsters and go on some pretty crazy quests.

This show is weird.  The first episode sort of jumps right in to the middle of their story so can't really give a background to their world - just think of it as a little kid and his dog fighting monsters in a traditional Sword & Sorcery setup and you have a pretty good idea of what is going on.

If you've never given it a try, it is definitely worth looking in to - it's pretty silly, but a heck of a lot of fun.
