I haven’t watched Adventure Time for a while now. Years probably. I’ve kept up with some of the plot by reading synopsises and all but that’s about it. Not to mention it rarely airs anymore as it is thanks to those same two shows they’ve kept shoving down our collective throats lately, so it’s not like I’d have many opportunities to catch it.
Yet it’s kind of surreal to see it finally end. It used to be a cornerstone of my life, I have memories, places, people that I associate with it. So much has happened to me since I saw that silly little pilot episode with friends I’m not even in touch with anymore. Adventure Time ending kinda marks the end of an era in my life, almost. Not to mention there’s always that pang of sadness when something that used to be a big deal is now quietly faded away before finally leaving.
I was definitely more upset about Phineas and Ferb ending, but I might go as far to say Adventure Time carries more of me with it as it leaves. One of these days I’m going to watch the whole series and catch up on what I missed.
See ya Finn and Jake. Thanks for being bros.
