Was it though? I thought Martin's backstory was explained plenty. I don't think we need to know everything that happened in detail. There's more than enough there for the viewer to fill in the gaps. I, for one, liked that about AT. Each episode is like a small window into the world of Ooo, but it carries on outside of that. It makes the world feel lived in, and gives it mystique. You lose something when you explain too much, I think. >>124754967>I was sad to see Steven Universe outshine it right out of the gate

Season 6, whatever you think of it, irrefutably had a stronger direction than seasons 4 or 5. Just about every episode tied into its central existentialist themes in some way. Which makes sense because it was reflection of where Finn was at that point in his life - questioning everything, and being unsure of his place in the world. Compare that to the first half of season 5, which is more or less just random adventures. You can prefer that, but it's objectively more directionless.
While I don't think season 6 nailed it completely, I will always defend it because the writers had the balls to push the series into truly uncharted territory. I will take that anyday over the same safe, regurgitated content, over and over again. Season 1 is still there for you to enjoy.
