Just watched the Memorial Day special.  Wow!  Don't want to spoil anything, I'll just say cool character development with Lars!  And now I want to know more about Lion's past!  And Yellow Diamond...Did she?????  Now how long do we have to wait for new material?

Yes, how long? HOW LONG!? =O

I loved the special! In particular, how Steven's character development is consistent... He's grown so much over the course of the series (albeit, not physically, lol! Poor Steven!). I loved seeing the

Yeah. It's sorta did. Wait. Plot twist: it was all white diamonds doing because white diamond got mad after loosing a game of gem kart with pink diamond. It's like Mario kart, but gems.

Overall, these are my thoughts on the episode.

I used to love it, but the scheduling is so tedious. Along with dead plot threads, characters getting sidelined and changed on a whim, and one-shot celeb cameo characters telegraphing they will never return because they are too expensive - it just sucked out the fun for me.

Still love the art and designs a lot. I recently got the artbook.
And I'll keep watching because I want to know how it all ends. But yeah, my rose-colored glasses are off :P Badum-tss!

I'd slightly change my mind if Jasper would return. I was so interested in her and all those Gem relationships, but they are keeping too many things secret for too long.
I would recommend binging each season because the flow of this show is whack.

God yes, CN's scheduling is atrocious. It seems that if a show isn't TTG, you have to wait months for eps (don't even get me started on the stupid bomb format they seem to have settled on).

I was a bit disappointed by the artbook - it felt a bit lacking/insubstantial, if that makes sense? It felt like a lot of it was just stuff we'd seen before on the internet and such. I am glad I got it, it did have some interesting stuff in there (especially all the stuff about the pilot and the early designs! I love that sort of stuff) but I don't think I'd get it again, if that.. makes sense. XD

I've been getting a bit burned out on SU too, though. The last batch of eps - the Lars/off-colour ones - were good so hopefully it's picking up again.. the eps before that were VERY hit or miss imo ^^; And I def. agree with you on the celeb cameo thing - Opal's one of my favourite fusions, but it doesn't look like she's coming back anytime soon... :/ Celebrity cameos are fine if the character is either intended to be a one-off or one that rarely appears (I'm not sure how to word it - I'm thinking like how in Adventure Time for example, a lot of the Fionna and Cake characters have guest star VAs - but those characters only show up once a season, if that, so it's not as much of a problem if they can't get them back. If that makes sense?), but for the fusions.. -sigh- I don't know, I liked Aimee Mann and Nicki Minaj's performances but since they clearly can't get any of them back, I sort of wish they'd picked less high-profile VAs for Opal and Sugilite? It really feels like they should've shown up again by now (and actually done something, I mean - I'm not counting the two-second non-speaking cameos they had in a few eps).

....also the inconsistent proportions/heights/etc on everyone are kind of grating. :P I know it's always been a thing, but it wasn't always this bad. Peridot gets hit by this particularly badly, I've noticed.

But I do like it still. :B And Zapper, I liked your post, it's really nice to see a fair criticism of the show without it being a full-on attack on it. If that makes sense, heh.

I agree not all of the episodes are mind blowing, but I think that's been true since the start... I think in general there is a lot of humor, great issues, and really good writing that is sometimes brilliant-  pretty hard to keep that in every single episode.

But yeah the flow of the show is really rough- three episodes and then months and months of nothing-  and then another bomb...  I do tend to start from the beginning after a long absence to give me a better feel/flow (and because a lot of the episodes are good enough to watch multiple times in my opinion)

As for the guest stars, you guys raise some points but on the other hand, I've heard from stars at Comic Con that they really like to do guest cartoon voice acting- because it is easy, fun, and they can show up in their sweats and read the lines...  so I wouldn't rule out seeing Sugilite or Opal again- and we wouldn't want them super often anyway as I like the idea of the characters forming only for really extreme reasons...
