Adventure Time - Frost & Fire DVD Review

Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero

It seems like you can never have enough Adventure Time. A new collection has been released containing of the top viewed episode, "Frost & Fire". This was the episode Finn had some interesting dreams and gets Flame Princess and Ice King to fight each other. If you're one of the few that hasn't seen it, this disc is perfect for you.

With Adventure Time, you have your choice in the different collections. The episodes are released by season as well as these assorted collections. What I really like about this collection is the mix of episodes from different seasons.

It's likely that if you're an Adventure Time fan, you've already seen these episodes. Of course owning the disc allows you to watch whenever you want without interruptions. As for what's contained on the disc, you can watch (or re-watch) the following episodes:

  • Frost & Fire (S5E30) - Finn is trying to get his girlfriend, Flame Princess, to fight the Ice King.
  • Earth & Water (S5E32) - Ice King moves into the treehouse while his kingdom is rebuilt. Flame Princess finds out about her past.

  • Apple Thief (S3E11) - Finn and Jake go to Tree Trunks to get some apples but someone stole them all. It’s up to Finn and Jake to figure out who the culprit is.
  • Thanks for the Crabapples, Giuseppe (S6E13) - Ice King goes on a road trip with Abracadaniel and others.

There's just a lot of variety in the show. The episodes will make you laugh. Some will make you scratch your head as you try to figure out what just happened or how the creators/writers come up with everything. The nice thing about these sort of collections is you can basically just dive right in and not worry too much about where the episodes fit in the overall continuity. There's not usually a strong emphasis placed on continuity. It does start out with Finn being with Flame Princess but other than that, you don't have to really worry about what has or hasn't happened yet. That makes this a great gift for the new or young Adventure Time fan.

This Frost & Fire collection is in stores today with a retail price of $19.82. The run time is 176 minutes so you'll definitely get your money's worth. Plus the fact these are some really great episodes. The question is, of the sixteen episodes here, which is your favorite?
