Alright, I outlined every episode of season 2 and wrote a teeny tiny review for them all (meaning like a sentence or two), but now it's time I make a list for the season. Since there are 26 episodes, I suppose I could do a top 10 and bottom 5, but instead I'll just make a top 5 and bottom 5. Obviously this post is for my favorites. There's a lot of solid midground in this season, though, so it will be hard to choose just 5 favorites.
If you want to see my opinion of each episode of the season, I'll throw some links below. And then to the countdown!
Part 1 (episodes #1-13)
Part 2 (episodes #14-26)
5. The Eyes
One of the funniest episodes of the second season, 'The Eyes' is a tight episode with an incredibly simple premise. There's some kind of weird horse staring at Finn and Jake in their treehouse, and this makes it so they can't sleep. It's quick, to the point, doesn't waste any time, doesn't fill itself up with meaningless crap, lacks filler, doesn't stall for time, and doesn't do that thing I just did at all. And that's one of the reasons it's so great. Watching Finn and Jake desperately try to get this horse thing to go and stop bothering them leads to some brilliantly comedic moments, my particular favorites being one involving snakes and the closing line. Season 2 was all about fun, before the show became too preoccupied with story, and this is one of the best of this harmless variety of episodes.
4. It Came From The Nightosphere
3. Death In Bloom
title card is one of the coolest in the show, so that definitely helps.
2. Mystery Train
1. Mortal Folly / Mortal Recoil
And there you have it. Hopefully I'll have the bottom 5 up within a few days. If not, be patient! I've got a lot of Adventure Time left to write about and I don't want to burn myself out.
