Over the Garden Wall
This seems to have been an experiment in format (it's ten, 11 minute episodes with a set ending and really should be watched in order) but even if I hadn't known it was from Cartoon Network I would have realized within the first episode since it is truly in their "style". In some sense it's weird to describe a channel as having a style, we tend to think of American channels as being more of broad, broadcasting platforms even though they've much closer to being media producers/aggregators but when I was growing up there were three channels for kids (Nickelodeon, Disney, and Cartoon Network) and this would have never fit with the kinds of shows Nick or Disney put out. CN has always liked the most absurd, the most out there shows and this show was created by one of the higher-up Adventure Time staff which is one of their most out there shows. It's connected more by characters (and lightly themes) than plot and the musical numbers reminded me a lot of what I saw of The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy and unfortunately for this show, I never liked that style and it still doesn't click with me today.
I will say that this is one of the rare shows where, even though I didn't like it, I can't deny that it was well-put together and I think it accomplished everything it set out to do. The pacing was even, the characterization consistent and growth subtly stated, the reoccurring plot points were all brought up at the proper points, and it's themes were very consistent, I can see why people liked the show! However, I prefer a show with fewer nonsensical bits (I think one entire episode was a huge parody of Babes in Toyland, when Dorothy lands in The Wizard of Oz, and probably specific 1980s cartoons that I'm not familiar with) and more of a continuous plot, my favorite parts of the show was when a character would casually drop a really important detail and watching the other characters react to it. The Idea Channel did an interesting video asking if OTGW was all about faith which I watched after the series but saw the title of before I did so I was thinking about that as I watched the show; ultimately I disagree that it was entirely or even mostly about faith but really did like the bit about the knights of faith and infinite resignation since I can easily that exemplified in the show (and had never come across the idea before but I can also immediately see it in other works I've read, wish that had come up in my English classes!). It's a solid show, and shorter than many movies this year, so if you want something which is both very strange and thoughtful, absurd and almost human, give it a shot.
