The original creator didn't fuck off, he stepped down to become one of the writers. Apparently he couldn't write under all the pressure. That said, season 5/6 which was the transition was a little bloated. However they have wrapped everything together in seasons 7, 8 & 9 quite nicely. I particularly liked Finns origin story in the "Islands" mini series which harks back to previous plot development surround Finns dad Martin.
The real problem it seems is that it became far more popular than any other Cartoon Network show. So they deliberately fucked the schedule for episodes to release new episodes as a surprise to force viewers to watch the channel. This negatively affected the ratings. To be fair though the show has had a rough end date since its' creation, because they chose a child actor to voice Finn, eventually he would out grow the role. Anyway, I am clearly a little biased since I like it so much I am making a complete archive of episodes but I think it's being killed off earlier than necessary. There was talk about a Warner Bros. film, maybe now it has ended they will finally make it. Any remaining plot holes can be filled then, but it's mostly complete.>>8562
I know the intro and outtro are the same length every time , also the show stopped doing cold opens, so for the remaining seasons (6,7,8,9) that won't be a problem. This is a much better way of handling it than I was thinking to be honest, I was looking for a way to cut off the beginning then cut off the end forcing me to process each file twice.
Any ideas on renaming the files? Every file should have the "s01e01" indicator in its' name, if I could just cut out the rest, that would be ideal. I don't even need to keep the file extension, I can just add a ".mp4" in the ffmpeg output. I am looking this up, would it be sed to find the "s0" the cut everything an additional 4 characters after that and move the file to that new name?
