I guess it was all for the sake of having the steven bomb week air. Considering they became a top trend on twitter and all the publicity it brought them It was worth it. Also imagine waiting a week of between the return and jailbreak? It would of been torture.

A lot of people are still salty over how Young Justice was treated and put their anger towards TTG after it replaced YJ. Which is a shame as it's a pretty fun show.

At first I wasn't that sold on Steven's new song in Full Disclosure, but I downloaded that sample earlier before I headed out to work (man that got uploaded fast). I've been listening to it all day at work today and now I'm totally on board. That fucking ringtone being worked into the song, so good.

And hey! Preview clips are back!!

Preview clip for next week's episode, "Open Book"


EDIT: hm, kinda wished this happened. But maybe too Disney for SU.

Sorry if this has already been posted, but apparently the screeners for the episode played a song by Rebecca Sugar over the credits, which of course didn't air on TV because they crunch down the credits or whatever CN does.

nice little sweet episode to end the season. I fucking burst out laughing when Steven showed his face to Connie haha.

Shit's gonna get pretty serious next season and the Steven/Connie relationship continues to be absolute concentrated sugar. I don't think it'll turn into anything romantic unless they have a time skip, which if they do it would be something minor.

The iTunes/Amazon version still have the song, for what it's worth.

I think Ian posted a while back that there are in fact multiple versions of each gem, because there can be different kinds of pearls, and different colors for other stones, etc.

One of the Crewniverse explained that Ruby was also having a very difficult time dealing with her sight losing a third eye, let alone a second type of vision all together.

Unusual observation concerning Gems and gender: The Homeworld Gems don't seem to have breasts, while the Earth Gems seem to either have them or wear outfits that allude to them.

Rose Quartz definitely did. Amethyst too. Garnet, Lapis and Pearl are ambiguous, but Pearl's original outfit and Lapis's top at least suggest their presence with their shapes.

Jasper and Peridot? Nada.

Since Gems can't have children, and presumably don't have the anatomy to produce milk, it makes me wonder if this was an aesthetic choice by Earth Gems to appeal to humans. Is it any surprise that the two Gems most interested in human attention are the ones most well-endowed?

I posted about that 3 pages ago. Thread's moving too fast these days. :)

I'm curious about who's supposed to be singing. I mean, I know it's Becky... but is the song about someone in the show specifically? Think it could be Rose's thoughts on Greg?

Man, I want to buy a blu-ray set of this show so badly. I guess I could just grab the episodes off Amazon Instant... but season sets usually get commentaries and other goodies and I don't want to miss out on that.

EDIT: hm, more so now that I can see that iTunes paired Political Power with Full Disclosure... how does that make sense? Well, an enterprising person can download those, strip the protection and split the episodes individually w/ video editing software and rename/reorder them as they please. Still, waiting on Blu-Ray.

After seeing the ratings for The Return and Jailbreak (both under 2 million) I'm worried about the future of this show. Hopefully it can get done and have a proper ending without being cancelled. I've had too many great shows get cancelled on me without any closure.

Wasn't there a confirmed season 3 in production? Hopefully there's three seasons and a proper ending at the end and the ratings dont dive down too much. Was season 2 made before they knew there was going to be a season 3? Hopefully that doesn't affect the flow of the show.

Thats true. I would hated to wait a week. no matter what its good to have those episodes back to back. Just with they could end up as 51 and 52. Not that it really matters.

Doesn't DST mess up ratings for a lot of shows? I don't think dipping below 2 million is too bad for the show. Isn't it still pretty good for its airing? I think the Rebecca Sugar's dad said something about Season 3. With how popular the show seems to be getting I would be surprised if it suddenly got cancelled.

It isn't about how popular the show is, it's about how profitable it is for CN.

CN doesn't care if adults on the internet like it. If young boys aren't into it, and it isn't selling merchandise, it'll get canned. Let's not forget that this is the same network that tossed YJ because there were no toys and the audience started getting too old and too female for their tastes.

Dammit. You're right. I completely forgot that they care very little about viewership. I know they have an app coming out but I'm unsure if they have any other merchandise or products that are coming out. I thought YJ and GL got axed just because of merchandise. Was part of the decision really about an audience too old and too female?

Even if Jailbreak basically is called to be the finale by the creators.

So I'm sure it's been mentioned ahead, but apparently Story for Steven and Open Book have been skipped for the StevenBomb week which is why I got confused about that.

I guess that means now that we're going to get Open Book, Story for Steven is still happening before the show goes on to its' planned Season 2 Episodes with the Uncle Grandpa crossover, right?

Because I really want to see Story for Steven.

I wouldn't call her anything near dysfunctional.

We find out in the end that this was their big Steven's Birthday thing. That's why Ruby is all "DON'T LOOK AT ME!!!", she's hoping that she can salvage the secret ... before realizing that Steven got out and can help her.

People seem to misunderstand her a bit. Like, there's a theory going that she's blind because she was late to realizing that Steven's free and she told Steven to stfu cause she couldn't see (when it's actually more safe to assume that she was referring to her lack of future vision and may have been too panicked to realize that Steven could help her at first). Odd ... all I got was that she's impatient and a bit Selfish.
Explains why Sug is the way she is ... Garnet is perfectly balanced, Amy tips the scale toward impatient and selfish.

Looks like the episode "Joy Ride" has been locked down on Zap2it.com and will air the week after "Open Book", March 26. Still no synopsis, still no real air date for "Say Uncle".


In other news: Attack The Light teaser clip. Looks like they're starting to ramp up the advertising for the game, launch date is still a guarded secret but it's apparently up to CN to announce it.

IIRC, things are different for comedy shows vs. (pure) action shows. Since action shows cost more to make, they need to bring in more outside profit then just the usual stuff they make from advertisements, where as comedy shows aren't as pressured to bring in any outside profits. It's why CN is practically all comedy based shows now.

There's also the runtime you have to consider; 10-12 minute shows vs. 20-22 minute shows. I don't know how expensive it is to make an episode of Steven Universe but I can guarantee you it's much cheaper than an episode of Young Justice.

This is also true, and it helps that it's an original show so CN gets all of the ad/merch revenue themselves.

Still, 100+ more episodes? It just seems a bit tough to believe, as much as I'd like to.

Lol. You think there's filler episodes in SU.

Also, can anyone Tell me how long I have to wait before I can have an avatar of that scene where Garnet has Jasper reflected on her goggles? I need it in my veins.

well they specifically said that these were episodes that could fall at any point in the season didn't they? So that means no plot relevance and no advancements to characterization. Probably throw-away episodes.

I'm fine with filler episodes after the massive amount of plot that was just dumped. We need some relaxing time.

Open Book does at least continue the plot thread of Steven reading the Unfamiliar Familiar series.

Yeah, I agree with this.

They're gems so they handle emotions/relationships differently too.
