What time is it? Time to work out some daddy issues while building a big Biblical tower! Finn is rocking a new arm. A big, spiky candy arm that is useless for making dinner. Finn wrecks the place and his arm explodes. Good opening! Poor Finn is dealing with some true Oedipal issues and wants to punch his father then rip his arm off. Understandable, considering Martin abandoned him as a baby and again to ride off with cosmic bad-guys into space, separating Finn from his arm in the process. Jake urges Finn to listen to his “melon-heart” and everything will work out. Well, that’s not going to happen. While lying in a field and listening to his melon-heart, a magical, shimmery new arm manifests itself on Finn’s flower covered stump. Furthermore, the power of Finn’s arm brings by a bunch of building material. The melon-heart says to build a tower into space to find his dad. Kids, don’t build a giant tower. It didn’t work out for Babel. It didn’t work out for South Park. It ain’t going to work for Finn. He doesn’t listen to me so he starts building, all the while singing “Baby’s Building a Tower of Revenge” which I think is song number 666 from the Celebration Hymnal (kidding, I don’t go to church). During his upward journey, Finn meets Caroll the Cloud-Girl. Caroll used to be water but she evaporated and ran away from the pond. Caroll is voiced by Cameron Esposito who channels her best Maria Bamford and does a stunning job mixing the funny with the heartwrenching sadness. I hope we see more of her. Guess what, Finn makes it to space! I love space. Space + Adventure Time = a good Dave Day. Finn’s dad picks him up in a space skimmer and Finn gets to punch him and try to steal his arm! I’d like to interject here and mention how sweet Martin’s outfit is. One part Ziggy Stardust, one part Zardoz and fully awesome! Hey, what do you know? Punching his Dad doesn’t give Finn any satisfaction. That’s just fine because it isn’t Martin, it’s Princess Bubblegum in disguise! Finn’s lesson is learned and all it took was a gigantic tower and a Martin suit. Finn’s magic arm disappears and all that remains is a tower made of stone, wood, glass, candy and penguins. And despite what Jake thinks, don’t listen to your melon-heart. It’s full of crap. Adventure Time 6.04 "The Tower"3.0Overall ScoreShare this:TweetShare on TumblrLike this:Like Loading...
