adventure time season 5 review 02

Finn the human & Jake the dog are back for their fifth season.  They are getting into adventures in the Land of OOO with bad guys, cool fruit, princess, Ice Kings, penguins, and pretty much whatever else you can imagine.  When they’re not questing, they’re having fun mixing it up with their friends.  This season we have seen The Jake Suit, alternate realities, and delicious sandwiches.  So what time is it? It’s Adventure Time!

adventure time season 5 review 06

Season 5 is their biggest yet with 52 awesome episodes.  Creator Penn Ward and his crew have kept the show fresh and entertaining even after a few years of putting out excellent content.  There are always guest voices like Ron Perlman and Kumail Nanjiani from the HBO Series SILICON VALLEY.  One of the best characters that they have pop up now and again are Fiona and Cake. They are the “fan fiction” version of Finn and Jake but female. Actually, everyone in OOO is their opposite when a story about Fiona and Cake is being told.

The show still makes me laugh but can be watched with a younger crowd.  I’ve watched it with my nieces and nephews without them picking up on some of the adult jokes that they throw out here & there.  My sense of humor could possibly be the reason why I get the jokes but it makes it easy to be a fan.

Season 5 has been transferred in a 1080p VC-1 that looks great.  The lines are solid and keep everything on screen separate.  The transfer is par with the past seasons that they have released on Blu-ray.  One of the things that always makes the HD versions of the show shine is the coloring.  For the most part, The Land of OOO is bright and florescent with colors that jump off the screen.

The audio mix for Season 5 is a Dolby Digital 2.0 track with a lot going on.  Even though it is coded for only two speakers, there is plenty of sweeping sound.  It can be heard in many episodes but it can be heard the most in the opening credits as the camera glides over OOO.  The mix also clearly separates the effects and music in each episode.

adventure time season 5 review 09

As I said earlier, Season 5 of ADVENTURE TIME has made me laugh as much, if not more, than the previous seasons.  The quests are crazier and there are characters new and old to make you laugh. The Blu-ray has great audio and video which is what I expect from Warner Bros. The slipcover included is of Jake and has the cut-out like the previous seasons. The art on the Blu-ray is different that what’s on the slip-cover.  The featurette called Adventure Time Forever is definitely worth checking out.  I highly recommend this season on Blu-ray for sure.
