    Body so ready.

    //EDIT: Last night's episode. Scandalous Pearl.

  • UPSLynxUPSLynx :KAPPA: Redwood City, CA Icrontian

    Pearl is so screwed. I predict a complete break down by the end of this week.

    Predicting here: Rose comes back, possibly to save Pearl. It's not permanent.

    ...I don't know if you guys have Gem Streams or not, but I don't think I need to explain this one.

    I wish, but since none of the episodes survive on YouTube, we can't do it. Also, since the show kind of needs to be watched in order, streams just wouldn't be as fun.

    We could always do the earlier episodes, you know before srs.

    In other news, I found the Sadie's Song and the Connie sword episode to be pretty droll. I know the sword episode sets up Connie to have more freedom in her swordfighting narrative, but for the first time in a while I felt like my time was a little squandered.

    Sadie's song. Ugh. Terrible.

    UPSLynx

    Sadie's Song is, in my opinion, one of if not the worst episode of Steven Universe yet. I was glad to see some development of Sadie and her mom, it's cool to see that kind of depth added to a secondary character.

    But seriously. Painful. Not to mention we sat through months of hiatus, and came back to nightmare hospital (which was OK at best) and Sadie's Song, and neither of which advanced the plot or, you know, featured any of the crystal gems. Painful.

    The creators swear up and down that no episodes of this show are filler, and I want to believe that, but I can't bring myself to care about any of the story angles made with Sadie's Song. So bad.

    That being said - the last two episodes are so damn good. Catch And Release + When it Rains are FANTASTIC, and finally put the big picture storyline back on track. I can't wait for next week. I need more.

    The last two episodes are fantastic.

    As an aside, I've also noticed that it's really difficult to track the episode and season numbers for SU. TheTVDB labels them differently from the chronological order, which is different from the CN airing order. So if you go to find the most recent episode, it's really difficult to know what episode number it actually is. Back To the Barn, for example, could be episode 19 or 20. Nobody really knows.

    Onion Friend might be S2E16 or S2E13, and everyone is really confused about the episode number of Say Uncle. It was a season 2 episode, but aired in season 1?

  • UPSLynxUPSLynx :KAPPA: Redwood City, CA Icrontian

    Yeah, the whole thing is kind of a mess, mostly in part due to Cartoon Network trying to maximize viewership.

    Ian James-Quarterly, the supervising director on the show, did a post that puts all of Season 1 in intended-air order. This is what should be considered appropriate order for Season 1:

    Hopefully, he does this with Season 2 as well. It gets super confusing. Google Play's order convention is different than, say, the air date order found on World of Steven Universe. It annoys me a lot.
