    Adventure Time: Distant Lands

    ★★★★★

    the first three episodes - bmo, obsidian, wizard city - are really fun. it's just More adventure time. it is noticeably different, though -- the animation feels a little more polished and the pivot to longform episodes allows for more complex and fleshed out stories without interruption. plus, i think the fact it was made for HBO Max rather than broadcast gave them license to be slightly edgier with the content. there's a lot of straight-up death in all these…
