Shitty knows way too much about housing codes and property law. He initially learned property law to save the Haus from being condemned, but then he realized that reading archaic, flowery law opinions while high was the most fucking hilarious thing ever. Everyone at his law school is confused by and a little afraid of Mr. B. Knight, because while no one else wants to touch all those old, mostly nonsensical British common law cases, Shitty eats that shit up
My whole life, I dedicated myself to the study and the service of other people’s discoveries, of other people’s adventures. I was a supporter.

honestly i feel like the adventure zone follows the trope i was talking about earlier with one episode really signalling the show heading in a darker and more mature direction: specifically, episode 27, the end of petals to the metal.
sloane and hurley’s deaths really show the more emotional consequences of the trio’s adventures and the trio’s attitudes toward it really reflect that (especially taako’s near-desperate refusal to accept it). i even remember after the episode frantically typing up “i never thought this show would make me cry” and that’s what makes it so good. from that halfway point of the show going forward things really get going main plot-wise and ask the characters to mature along with the weight of their actions and while obviously it never stops being hilarious, that moment really lays it on the line that hey things have changed for good and there’s no going back
