Not as good as it is made out to be.

Honestly, after hearing about all of the hype for this series, and finally watching it after the series ended, I just don't see why the show is being praised to such a large extent. While the series does have some good moments, and a few good characters like Stan, Wendy, and Dipper, other characters, especially Mabel, have often made the show feel exasperating. For the most part, I wasn't a huge fan of the soundtrack. I didn't really care for the ciphers and whatnot as I don't think they added that much to the show. The Myth Arc was okay at best, but there wasn't enough of Bill. Bill could have become a more interesting character, but he didn't do much for me. One of the main points of contention for me is in the show's themes. Often the show, whether it tries to or not, has a type of theme for each episode, but often times, the Aesop would be broken or lost or ignored, making the Aesop pointless in the first place. "Roadside Attraction" is one of the best examples of this. Overall, I have to give this series a 6.5/10 at best.

You bring up some interesting points, but I get the feeling that you werenít able to explain them because of the word count. Iím particularly curious what you mean about the morals being hypocritical, any chance you could expand on that in the comments?

I agree with your sentiments, this show was a very average cartoon that got a little too much online exposure.
