If you’ve ever seen a commercial for “Adventure Time,” you might have noticed it’s a bit, um, weird. If you watch an actual episode, you’ll realize it is really weird. But it’s also got enough sharp humor that adults are tuning in as well as kids, making it a cultural phenomenon. Heck, even the New Yorker lavished on praise as it entered its 6th season this year. Declaring that it’s the “type of show that’s easy to write off as ‘stoner humor,’” critic Emily Nussbaum wrote that she’s come to realize the truth: “‘Adventure Time’ is one of the most philosophically risky and, often, emotionally affecting shows on TV.” It’s the weird you didn’t know was missing from your life!
