Adventure Time: Distant Lands - Season 1, Episode 01: BMO
It is a series of animated adventures led by a group of friends, where there is a deadly space emergency at the far end of the galaxy. Now, there is a new mission driven by these as there is only one hero to call, and it may be BMO that can change course of events.
Hopefully, BMO sets the tone for the other specials while still allowing for similarly offbeat stories without feeling too much like one another. HBO Max could do far worse than allowing different Adventure Time characters to dream of grand adventure.
If the remaining three Distant Lands installments - including one with Bubblegum/Marceline, one with Peppermint Butler, and a fourth with Finn and Jake - are even half as good as "BMO," I will be satisfied.
This is a fun, funny, and occasionally moving first episode, which bodes well for the rest of this limited return series. The only thing that worries me is I expect the remaining episodes will feature far less BMO.
