Do your kids love Adventure Time? I know my kids do, especially my teenager! He absolutely adores this show and could watch it over and over and over again. He has most memorized, actually! (If only he paid so much attention to detail when it comes to his schoolwork!)
Adventure Time follows the unlikely heroes Finn and Jake, best buddies who traverse the mystical Land of Ooo and encounter its colorful inhabitants – and always find themselves in the middle of heart-pounding escapades.
Finn, is a silly kid with an awesome hat and Jake, a brassy dog with a big kind heart, depend on each other through thick and thin. The Land of Ooo is teeming with imposing mountains, lush green plains, accessible forests, ubiquitous prairies and winding rivers, the cities and towns are filled with bizarre characters in need of unique assistance. Whether it’s saving Princess Bubblegum, defeating zombie candy, mocking the “oxy-moronic” Ice King, or rocking out with undead music wiz Marceline the Vampire Queen, with Finn and Jake it’s always Adventure Time.
So when we got to preview the Adventure Time: Complete Third Season on Blu-Ray, Kyle was super-excited. This release features 26 episodes, which translates to about 4 hours of fun! This release also has fun packaging that kids will definitely get a kick out of. The packaging features a BMO slip-cover case, and inside, you will find arms you can tape to the box to create your own BMO character! The discs themselves also feature BMO. One has his heart and the other has his CD-ROM drive! Pretty neat, right?!
There are also oodles and oodles of bonus features included in this release. There are must-have bonus features including episode commentaries for ALL 26 episodes, an interview with series creator Pendleton Ward, an alternate show introduction.
I have to admit, as a parent, I had a hard time keeping up with all of the commentary. Sometimes it seemed that the discussion had very little to do with what was on screen. This didn't bother my Adventure Time obsessed teen, though. He actually really enjoyed hearing all about how episodes are created and the inspiration behind each episode. In fact, he has been telling all of his friends that he's an "Adventure Time Insider", and is sharing all kinds of behind the scenes knowledge with them.
One of the coolest parts of this release would have to be the LEGO alternate introduction, which can be found on the DVD. I can't even begin to imagine how much work, and how many LEGO blocks were used in creating this super-fun sequence!
Isn't that absolutely amazing?!
Overall, I would definitely recommend checking out "Adventure Time: The Complete Third Season". This is so much fun, and full of so many neat bonus features that give fans an inside look at their favorite Cartoon Network series.
