ADVENTURE TIME: DISTANT LANDS – A Blu-ray/DVD Review by John Strange
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-raytm I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.
Adventure Time: Distant Lands is a set of four loosely related animated episodes that run about 45 minutes each. The show is running on HBO Max currently and is now coming out through Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Inc.
Watching these four shows was an interesting way to spend an afternoon. The plots are all over the place, but each is interesting in its own way. From robots that look like old handheld game players to singing badass vampires, the shows are a good example of the animation style where everything is drawn rather loosely.
The main characters face dire situations loaded with opportunities to do good. I can see why the shows have dedicated fans. On behalf of those fans, this is a 5-star offering. For the rest of us, it reaches for a 4-star rating. And sadly, there are zero bonus extras. The disk has the four episodes and nothing else.
For those wondering, I enjoy most of the animated offerings from the Cartoon Network. But as with all networks, I like some shows more than others. This one is a good example of the genre and I enjoyed watching it but I am glad there were only four episodes to watch.
