Fucking this. Early on the show was great. Yeah there was slight hints of shipping and romance but it was kept light just because Finn was a hero going on quests and adventures.
It really did go down hill when they focused purely on shipping or offbrand, offtopic side stories like>>113848002
Reminds me of this argument when someone tried to say the show's always been about Finn only doing heroic things to get with PB/FP/Huntress.
