Blu-ray Review: Remarkably Clever ‘Adventure Time’ Makes HD Debut

Adventure Time

CHICAGO – As a parent, I can tell you that a lot of what connects with young viewers and becomes a smash hit is pretty creatively stale. Which is why it’s so awesome to see a show as smart, inventive, and downright hilarious as Cartoon Network’s “Adventure Time” build one of the largest followings in television animation. The adventures of Finn & Jake, “two of the coolest heroes to hero-ize,” are that increasingly rare thing in children’s animation — totally original.

A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas

DVD Review: Adult Swim’s Hilarious ‘The Venture Bros. Season 4: Vol. 1’

The Venture Bros. Season 4

CHICAGO – Just a few years ago, it felt like TV animation for adults was in a golden age with the return of “Family Guy,” “The Simpsons” and “South Park” still going relatively strong, and Adult Swim truly breaking new ground in what could be done in animated form. It feels now like it’s plateaued a bit with many of the shows that were at the top of their game a few years back sliding down a bit in terms of quality. One such program is Adult Swim’s “The Venture Bros.,” a show that is still incredibly creative but doesn’t click like it used to do every week.
