Been watching some adventure time in the evening with K. I was suspicious of the show for a long time, but I'm beginning to see what the appeal of it is. There's a strange, paradoxical kind of realism in the aggressively wacky fantasy elements in it --- which is to say, if you were dropped in a foreign place, you would not expect that place to go easy on you in terms of culture shock. A real place wouldn't have careful, novelistic pacing to warm you up to the setting. There's an in medias res feeling not only in each episode's plot, but in the rules of the universe the plot is happening in.
