I used to be one of the biggest AT fans among my friends. At some point however, I started watching less and less, and I haven't seen a single episode after the one with Finn's Dad. I do really feel that it's deserving of the awards and fans it has, as the emotional obstacles work on a very relatable level, and the designs for both characters and locations are simple, yet very imaginative.
Also, did anyone notice in the episode "Beautopia", the sound effect used for the huge Lub Glub is the same one used for Makuta's shadow powers? I've seen it pop up elsewhere, too.
