Adventure Time and Rick and Morty are both better, 1v1 me
Stakes was great, but AT lost it's way in the back half of Season 6. How S5 ended and how 6 started, I thought we were in for something special. We did get that...in sporadic bits. They channeled that disappointment theme with Finn's deadbeat dad a little too good.
Let's put it this way, I actually thought going into Season 6 that we were getting the next-to-last season. I wanted Ice King and Betty plotline progression. Maybe that's my fault for expecting that AT was winding down given how heavy and how final some of these plotlines were starting to seem. If you asked me a year ago if AT was ending with Season 6, I probably would've said 'it's possible, but if it doesn't, it'll definitely end in 7'.
If it wraps up in Season 7, I fully take back everything I say about this. But at the moment, it just seems like AT is spinning its wheels playing on goodwill to live far longer than it should. CN seems determined to have AT on the air as sure as the sun rises and sets each day.
Also Stan is the best, fite me irl. Rick and Morty and GF are twin series separated at birth.
