Adventure Time starts off with a series of bizarre adventures of Finn, a human boy, and Jake, a magical dog that has the ability to stretch himself within the land of Ooo. As the series progresses, little tidbits of information regarding the world of of Ooo and its are unraveled.
As of the start of Season 5, the background story goes like this:
1000 years prior to the events of the series, the Earth was engulfed in what was known as "The Mushroom War", a nuclear holocaust that only devastated the planet and its inhabitants, but the bombs used in the war have chemical properties that turn any survivor into mutants. It is named as such because of the mushroom cloud the bombs make upon detonation. During those 1000 years, magic and fantasy creatures began to emerge and re-populate the Earth.
Finn Mertens is the only human being known alive in Ooo. As an orphaned baby, he is adopted by a family of magical dogs who raise him as their own. It is here that Finn would meet his brother and best friend, Jake. After Jake's parents passed away, Finn and Jake have since lived in a large treehouse along with BMO, a talking computer, and recently NPTR, a pie-throwing robot. Finn and Jake then spend their days engaging in a series of adventures. They would later offer themselves as guardians to the Candy Kingdom, ruled by Princess Bonabelle Bubblegum, of whom Finn has a crush on for a period of time before going steady with his current girlfriend, Flame Princess of the Fire Kingdom.
Bubblegum and the other known princesses of Ooo are being constantly targeted by the Ice King, the ruler of the Ice Kingdom populated with penguins who wants to capture princesses so he could have them as his wives. The Ice King's desire for a princess is due to his past life as a human named Simon Petrikov, who before the Mushroom War, discovered the Crown that grants him ice powers and survive the war at the cost of his sanity, and the Enchiridion, a book that teaches the reader the values of a hero, as well as a key to open the door to the multiverse. He once had a girlfriend named Betty, whom he calls his princess, that broke up with him when Simon wore the crown for the first time and starts his decent into madness.
In the war's aftermath, Simon discovers a half-demon girl named Marceline Abedeer, the daughter of Hunson Abedeer, the ruler of the Nightosphere (AT's own version of 'hell') alone and crying. Simon took her in and the two formed a very close bond until Simon's madness ultimately made them part ways. Marceline in her later years would be turned into a vampire by the Vampire King, whom she would slay thereafter to take the title of Vampire Queen. Prior to meeting Finn and Jake, Marceline once lived in the very same treehouse the two adventurers now currently reside in and was once friends with Princess Bubblegum, but have an estranged relationship since for reasons unknown.
As Finn is growing up, he hears stories of Billy, Ooo's greatest hero known for defeating the Lich, a powerful entity bent of destroying the world. Billy became Finn's inspiration for becoming an adventurer. At the end of Season 4, Billy was killed and possessed by the Lich, who then tricked Finn into using the Enchiridion to open the door to the multiverse, where the Lich would then head for the Time Room, occupied by one of AT's divine entities, Prismo, to wish the extinction of all life. Finn and Jake pursued and when learned of the Lich's motives, Finn wishes for the Lich to never even existed, changing the course of history of Ooo and bringing more devastation on Earth. Jake, with the help of Prismo, reversed the disaster by making the Lich change his wish and return Finn and Jake back into Ooo.

It is set in a post apocalyptic world and follows the adventures of Finn the Human and Jake the Dog. I don't think they're brothers.

Does it have to be a *new* action show? Do you remember T.J. Hooker? How about Starsky and Hutch? Do you remember the Dukes of Hazzard? Do you Remember Hawaii 5-0?? Those were all very good action shows! Just try to catch some of the old action shows on Nick or TV Land or whatever channel they come on. If you have Showtime, HBO, and Cinnemax, then try to catch the action shows on those channels such as The Wire, Oz, The Sapranos, Dead Like Me, etc. Good Luck!
