Review: Adventure Time "All Your Fault"

     Last week, the episode aired was "All Your Fault."  It was an episode about the Lemongrabs and has no repercussion on the rest of the series.  The premise is that the Lemon Kingdom has run out of candy to feed them so Princess Bubblegum sends Finn and Jake there with candy seeds.  They find the kingdom over run by starving Lemon people and they have to go to the dungeon of the castle to find Lemongrabs.  When they find them, they learn that Princess Bubblegum left the method of creating people from candy behind and the Lemongrabs couldn't control their urge to create life.  They used all the food to create life and decide to storm the Candy Kingdom to create more life.  They use a giant lemon creature to attack but Finn and Jake stop him by activating his heart and giving him feelings.
     As much as the title would suggest, it really is not an important episode for the long term, unless something unforeseeable happens in the future.  The episode was funny while Finn and Jake were searching the castle and they reacted to all the messed up lemon people.

Final Rating: 8.5/10

Upcoming episodes:

2/4: Little Dude-Finn's Hat comes to life
2/9: Preview of Bad Little Boy-Genderswap with Marshall Lee
2/11: No new episode
2/18: Bad Little Boy
2/25: Vault of Bones-Finn worries Flame Princess may be evil


  1. What I liked about this episode, especially coming right after "Mystery Dungeon" as it did, which also had Lemongrab in a major role, was the way it highlighted the difference between Lemongrab and even very weird people like the Ice King. The Ice King is confused, selfish and mercurial -- mostly due to the Crown -- but he still thinks like an adult human being. Just a rather messed-up adult human being.

    Lemongrab's thought processes are far more alien. He's smart enough, for example, to understand how to make Bubblegum's formula, but he's not smart enough, or his thought processes are too inhuman, for him to grasp why turning all the candy into biomass was a supremely bad idea. Even when he had the candy seeds, it didn't occur to him that he should have used them to grow more candy, then kept some of the candy as unliving candy to feed his children.

    Ice King thinks rather like a teenager on drugs; Lemongrab like an infant. Only creepier.

  2. I don't think it is inhuman thought process, more of simplistic. The best example I can think of is from The Big Bang Theory when Leonard's ex said "If you put a button in a cage that will cause the mouse in the cage to have an orgasm, it will push that button until it dies." They are self-serving in the present, without thinking of what the future could hold.
