For Christmas in 2014, my partner's brother bought me season one of Adventure Time on DVD. I'd seen it referenced all over the internet but had never seen a single second of footage. Fast forward to the present and this is easily my favourite western produced animation, rivaled only by The Simpsons' golden era. I think it's often quickly dismissed but it surprised me with its mix of depth and emotion (e.g., Marcy and Simon flashbacks, Finn's character development and family troubles) with lighthearted and silly moments than remind me of simpler times in life. In my opinion, the show is criminally underrated and doesn't have the audience it deserves. This is probably not the right forum to espouse my adoration for the show but if there are any other fans out there, share the Adventure Time love.
