Horrorthon Countdown Challenge Day 8! Best Ofs (kinda)
Last year I started off these Countdown posts with an appeal for everyone to complete their uncompleted Horrorthon Best Ofs from the previous year. There's no need to do that this year, as everyone got all responsible and stuff. Sooo...
Think of a new show, or movie, or book, or any other relevant media experience that really left an impression on you in the last eleven months.
My entry is the indomitable Adventure Time with Finn and Jake. I'd been aware of this for a while but since Zack isn't quite ready for it I wasn't checking it out. Then I got to do some work on it (which still hasn't aired so I can't go into details), and after screening just a few eps for "research" I was totally hooked. The characters are endearing, the stories are dynamic, and best of all you never can predict every little bit of it. It is staggeringly original, and it will surprise you.
So, what do you got, 'thonners? What's been blowing your brain out of its boat this year?
