Compared to the entire context of Adventure Time, or even just compared with Part 1 of Distant Lands, Part 2//Obsidian seemed lifeless.
It was as if this was a homework assignment that needed to be handed in. This was not representative of the visually and emotionally beautiful, surreal but funny, intricately detailed flavor of Adventure Time.
It felt as if whomever was producing this episode was just focused on a to-do list of content, which was then tiredly executed.
BMO's story in Part 2 was full of tiny intricacies and apparently pointless detail that came together beautifully at the end: Obsidian was lots of.......myeh....
It didn't really put the viewer inside any new or inspiring perspectives, the characters were not given any personality, and what they experience isn't really fleshed out with enough feeling and detail.
Even visually, this episode was lacking and felt empty - could it be that a new animation team is being used? Worrying.
45 minutes went by very slowly, which I have never felt when watching Adventure Time, and its not the feeling I want when I watch Adventure Time.
