Jake and Finn have a treasure problem. They have way too much. While BMO and Neptr are playing “Robbing Hood” their crazy antics break open the treehouse vault and out spills all their loot along with Ancient Psychic Tandem War Elephant. Finn and Jake decide to spend all their cheddar in the Wildberry Kingdom. Even when I give Adventure Time a not-so-perfect score, it still rates higher than everything else on television. It is a guaranteed 11 minutes of solid entertainment, every time. “Furniture and Meat” was a fun romp and entertainingly awkward at times. Finn has his arm back and it’s business as usual. For the most part, this episode could fit anywhere in the series. After all of the gigantic sniz that’s happened this season, “Furniture and Meat” felt refreshingly familiar. If I had to place Jake in Dungeons and Dragons I would consider him Chaotic Neutral. He’s lucky his best friend is a hero because Jake could go either way. John DiMaggio, as always, is phenomenal in this episode as Jake begins to realize that he has power over the denizens of Wildberry Kingdom because he’s rich and they will do anything for a sack of smoosh. There’s plenty for adults to enjoy as Jake asks for a sleeping couple to “do things” for him (not what you’re thinking). When he becomes bored with that, he tells them they can keep as much as they can eat. About halfway through the episode, Jake decides to give all the money away to save Jake from become completely corrupt. To dispense with all their cash, Jake decides to give all the money to the Wildberry Princess in exchange for sitting on her head. Naturally, such an offense earns them execution Game of Thrones-style as they wait for their gold to cascade down on their heads in a molten river. BMO and Neptr save the day while continuing to play “Robbing Hood.” In case I haven’t mentioned it yet, I adore John DiMaggio. Who doesn’t? He’s a cartoon-voice God. I’m waiting for a suitable episode with loads of signature Jakeness to gush about him. This episode came close but I’m holding out for better stuff. It’s just around the corner, I’m sure. Did this episode change my life? No. Did its hidden messages and themes awaken my soul to transcendence? No. That’s ok because it’s happened at least twice this season. This was just a super-fun episode with a little naughtiness and a fairly clear message about abuse of power. As far as Adventure Time goes, it’s par for the course. For the rest of television, it’s way, way, way ahead of the pack. Adventure Time 6.08 “Furniture and Meat”3.5Overall ScoreShare this:TweetShare on TumblrLike this:Like Loading...
