I really like the stevenbombs because sitting down once a week to watch a ten minute show feels ridiculous, I much prefer a big lump of episodes at once.

So is it REALLY coming back on July 2nd? I can't watch the video so I don't know if you're being real.

I like the Steven bombs too... in theory. The problem is in their execution. Whether they're intentionally killing the show or they're just staffed by fools, by doing Steven bombs instead of just going week to week, it doesn't let tension build. Okay, it builds tension for us grown-up losers watching children's cartoons, but for the actually-important-to-the-network kids' demographic, it gives them time to forget and stop caring.

I think part of the problem is serialization, and that whoever's running the show in Atlanta is stupidly afraid of alienating any viewers with a contextless rerun of a serious episode when they could just show any episode of TTG or one of their other episodic shows and probably keep a few more eyeballs on screen. And granted something like "A Single Pale Rose" out of context would be super weird for the casual viewer, but drat come on guys, take a chance.

tl,dr: Stevenbombs are all well and good, but they need to be done in addition to regular airing if this show's gonna keep going for 6 seasons and a movie.

STOP BEING EVIL.


Ideally they would've left a good long time between Lapis on the Moon and Inside Pearl's forehead, and then aired the two episodes that take place literally within 5 minutes of eachother closer together.

I mean seriously, everybody basically forgot about Lapis's song, where she might go next, what they're going to do about that moon Barn, and even Steven's dream in the wake of the big reveal. That dream could've been a month's worth of speculation, and instead it came off as a wet fart.

It took me several hours after seeing Pale Rose to realise there was also a Lapis episode out.

I call the darkness unto me from deepest depths of Earth and sea. From ancient evils unawoken, break the one that can't be broken. To blackest night, I pledge my soul and crush my heart to burning coal. To summon forth a deathly power, to see my hated foe devoured.


It could be worse; I saw the trailer for the next bomb at the end of the lapis episode. I didn't even have time to realize and pause before the big twist hit.

Yeah whoever edited that Dailymotion upload (I can see their intention was so that the credits would be in the video) really didn't think things through

Next time on Steven Universe...

Eyeball Ruby poses as Crystal Gem Ruby to fool Sapphire into marrying her and forming Bizzaro Garnet in the attempt to betray and shatter Steven once and for all! Will she succeed? Will Sapphire see any of this coming? Will anyone notice that her gem is clearly visible on her face and not on her hand?

Tune in to find out the answers to all these questions...and more!

At this point, I'd even be happy if they Netflixed it and dumped everything out there. It's all going to be rerun to death over the next decade anyway, if that's all Cartoon Network cares about, why wait?

Skullgirls devs are perverts who are having an hangover after a succesful indiegogo. They watched the tropes vs women and they hate their fans, repented and now want to be seen as Legit Indie Game Developers in the IGF ballpit/circlejerk for hipsters.

Pomp has also an anime avatar.

He plays for the dreamers that forgot how to dream, and the lovers that forgot how to love.

The one cool thing about that garbage is that most UK fans have been calling out CNUK about the decision to censor it being bigoted garbage.
