Storyline

This series is set in the fictional Beach City, where ageless alien warriors, the Crystal Gems, live in an ancient beachside temple, protecting the world from evil. They project female humanoid forms from magical gemstones that are the core of their being. The Crystal Gems are Garnet, Amethyst, Pearl and Steven, a young half-human, half-Gem boy who inherited his gemstone from his mother, the Gems' former leader Rose Quartz. As Steven tries to figure out his powers, he spends his days with his human father Greg, his friend Connie, other people in Beach City, or the other Gems, whether to help them save the world or just to hang out. He explores the abilities passed down to him by his mother, which include fusion (the ability of Gems to merge their identities and bodies to form a new and more powerful personality).

Fantastic piece of art,Go Steven Universe
14 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

The author "natebridgeman" evidently don't know what he's/she is talking about.These Character designs are very sharp and original,the gems are based on actual gems and their skin color match.I actually miss shows with sharp geometric figures and I'm glad Rebecca Sugar brought this to her show,and ironically the show was nominated for a Annie awards for it's completely original character designs (A great accomplishment).

The dialogue is like "Plan 9 from Outer Space"? Yeah because that makes sense,not once (So far) in the show have they said anything about aliens or Zombies.The show is about a kid name Steven Universe who is half gem (Mother side) and half human (Father side),who goes on "fun" and magical adventures with a female fighting team called The Crystal Gems or for short "The Gems".Each gem is name after a gem except Steven who has a Rose-quart gem,anyway they go on magical adventures and Steven sing songs, like come on, a 8 years old can understand the concept well enough to enjoy the show.

A pilot episode is a trial episode that's aired before the first series to gauge audience response. They had 10 minutes and he/she was expecting a back story? No it doesn't work like that,even Adventure Time pilot (The show you praise)had no back story, but like the Steven Universe pilot it gave us the sense to what show is about, and what we can expect.

The quote you questioned "If every pork chop was perfect, we wouldn't have hot dogs" is such a great quote,and I love it.It means if everyone was perfect (Pork chop) then we wouldn't be different or have originality (Hot dog) it has nothing to do with meat message wise.The show actually embrace not being perfect which is why I love it,and also why the character designs are so different from each other (Various body shapes,hair style,etc.) notice how Steven mess up constantly but they never get mad,no they embrace him for learning of experience.

Usually I would ignore stupidity from such a person but I couldn't let him/her go around the internet bashing something he admits to not knowing.My only problem about the show is that it's a musical but I've only heard one song, like come on more music,I love your songs Rebecca Sugar but other than that great show,and the background music is just amazing.
