Critic Reviews for BMO

"BMO" suggests that the "Adventure Time" saga is loaded with endless details that can carry their own tunes. Bring on the next one.

If you've ever wanted more BMO while watching Adventure Time this will more than satisfy that fix.

BMO steps into the role of hero by fighting the power of a broken system led by a corrupt ruler -- a narrative that is both universally timeless and incredibly timely.

The magic is intact.

In comparison to its subversive predecessor, "BMO" is simply unimaginative in its structure.

Jun 25, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It still feels like Adventure Time, operating on the same blend of dream logic, comedy, and surreal heroism that made the show such a delight and for so long.

The timeline revelations add an extra layer to BMO's loneliness, making the ending revelation particularly bittersweet.

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.

BMO feels a bit rushed when it comes to story beats and character development... Luckily, BMO acts as an emotional anchor here.

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.
