Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 169: Power Animal

GC13 and David discuss Ms. Sugar’s second episode of Adventure Time, Power Animal.

Not only was Ms. Sugar pivotal for adding tears to the episode – Finn isn’t supposed to cry, but she managed to get tears of joy into the episode – but she is even responsible for the personal anecdote that led to the gnome king devouring the bean dip at the party.

Plus: Chip Dip Triple Flips Are Hip.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 168: Lion

GC13 wonders about the mystery of Lion, and the lions described by Buddy Buddwick in his journal.

We don’t even know whether Rose’s secret pride of lions was normal or if they were pink and Buddy somehow managed to not relate this fact (though it would make sense that they were normal and Rose chose Lion from this or a later batch).

What questions do you have about Lion? What answers do you have? We may be getting some answers on the show soon, but until then we’ll have to wonder together, so we’d better get down to it.

Steven Universe air times for December 4-10, 2017

Still no episodes this week. 🙁

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 167: Issues 1-4 of the comic series (“Warp Tour”)

GC13 and David discuss the first four issues of the new comic series, which for some reason have been dubbed “Warp Tour” when compiled together.

It’s a great start to the comic series, with great humor, characters we don’t often get to see, and an art style far more faithful to the show. It’s also chock full with background goodies, like any good comic series.

If you’re not following the series we heartily recommend it, whether you read it in print or digitally. And apparently issues #5-8 not be called “Marble Madness” when collected together. Oh well.

Steven Universe air times for November 27 – December 3, 2017

Still no re-runs scheduled. 🙁

Season four to reach Hulu on December 11

According to Entertainment Weekly, season four of Steven Universe will reach Hulu on December 11.

This will bring the series up to I Am My Mom, meaning that anyone watching their Steven Universe re-runs on Hulu won’t be missing very many episodes.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 166: The season-one DVD announcement

GC13 discusses the announcement of the season-one DVD set for the USA, due out on January 30, 2018.

At $25 and with the special features you’d expect (commentaries especially), it looks like it will be a great boxed set to buy. It’s even only a couple years late!

Still, one thing needs to be said: what is up with the episodes in the set? The first two episodes of season two, Full Disclosure and Joy Ride are included in this set while two season-one episodes, Shirt Club and Story for Steven are being left off. Why this is we just don’t know.

All in all though? It’s great to finally have a boxed set coming out.
