    Can't believe there hasn't been a thread yet (Well I can't find one at least) of this amazing show.

    But I guess its understandable as the show is very underrated and only has a cult fanbase. (Although it is growing)

    Still, I love this show because it manages to create epic plots and morals in just the small span of 10 minutes an episode.

    What is your opinion, and what do you think of season 2 so far? (Personally, season 2 hasn't impressed me so far)

    I've only watched the first episode so far and found it rather boring. Does it get better after that?

    It certainly does, some episodes further on have so many feels that it gives Clannad a run for its money.

    Then perhaps it is time I gave it another shot. Hopefully I shan't return a fully fledged fangirl..

    I'll be specific here, these episodes are massive tear-jerkers.
    "The Test"
    "On The Run"
    "Rose's Scabbard"

    So what did people think of the crossover?
    It wasn't terrible. I quite enjoyed it. The ship of Lars and Sadie sinking was quite a nice touch (because, you know, shipping) and Mr. Gus being a fan with a Gemsona was a nice addition too. The one thing that annoyed me in this episode was The Crystal Gems. They just seemed very out of character, although Pearl's actions after her head was returned to her body were funny; as was Amethyst tripping over the 'RUN AWAY'. Uncle Grandpa wasn't too obtrusive either. He was not affecting the whole story, nor was he overbearing
    He was there just enough. Overall I quite liked this episode

    So far, I've only seen it in drama (something about fear of Bronies "ruining" it)

    The art/character design is extremely wierd and it all reminds me of Adventure Time (too weird for my liking) but to each her own. I'll probably check it out at some point!

    I thought they were a bit out of character, but i think it works in the context of the episode. I loved it when Pearl was freaking out, and the bit where their heads drop back onto their bodies cracked me up. Lots of great facial expressions in this episode

    I'll agree with that. Pearl freaking out was funny . And Amethyst was quite funny too.

    Sorry, but I think that crossover was the worst episode of Steven Universe

    Please oh please do not have another crossover ever again!

    The humour was very annoying, Uncle Grandpa was also very annoying, I even cheered when the Gems attacked him.

    Also the moral was very confused, it taught us not to judge weird people, but here's the thing if weird people like Uncle Grandpa are going to act very annoying, then I'm afraid I can't get to like them.

    Has anyone played 'Attack The Light' yet? It's really good, like a mix of Pokemon, Final Fantasy and Zelda.

    Sounds to me that after June 19, we'll have another hiatus.

    Even though its great to see the show back soon, we'll probably be waiting again.

    Well there is no doubt in my mind at least two of the episodes here will be some of the best in the series (if you look at the wikipedia synopsis's. Even if they are lies)

    Ended up binge watching the entire series up till the last few episodes pre-hiatus with my flatmate a month or so ago... dear god this show is fantastic.

    Well written characters, diverse and hard-hitting narratives, colourful and cute art style, surprisingly good music and great voice acting... it's extremely well executed and well made.

    About the Uncle Grandpa Crossover, I agree with the consensus that it was a bad episode. Having never seen UG before, I didn't know what to expect and was honestly baffled why ANOTHER weird as hell abstract show had been commissioned by Cartoon Network. There's only so much you can do before milking Adventure Time's cooky, abstract cow dry, I think this probably is bit too far. Steven Universe comes across as levelled, somewhat mature while also packing in the laughs without them feeling forced; which didn't fully allow elements of both series to co-exist without one feeling superior. While the episode did have introduce me to the Giant Realistic Flying Tiger (which I loved but found ludicrous at the same time), I hope the core series of Steven Universe doesn't do something like this again... unless it is with a CN show that DOESN'T feel like its under SU's shadow.
