Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 157: The 20,000-year timeline of Steven Universe

GC13 and David open up the art book (to page 105!) to talk about the timeline that covers 20,000 years of the past and future of the Gem Homeworld and Earth.

No, we don’t know what’s on it. We don’t even know how much of it is past and how much of it is future. Apparently though, Homeworld is indeed a young empire (as far as star empires go, anyway).

More bits from this timeline are sure to make their way into episodes as the series goes on, especially as we learn more about Homeworld. Still, there’s no guarantee that when all is said and done we’ll know everything, since some pieces of lore don’t make for interesting stories.

Hopefully we’ll get it some day. Yes, one can hope.

Still no re-runs to report. 🙁

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 156: OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes

GC13, Isabelle, and David take a moment in this hiatus to talk about Ian Jones-Quartey’s new series, OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes.

Mr. Jones-Quartey was the supervising director of Steven Universe for its first two seasons (and then some), and the pilot for OK K.O.!, Lakewood Plaza Turbo, was released at around the same time as Steven Universe’s but took much longer to get greenlit for a show.

It’s a very fun show and we think you should watch it; there is the occasional Steven Universe reference to catch, but it definitely stands on its own merits.

Have no fear though: while we like OK K.O.! we will continue being a Steven Universe podcast (though you can expect us to check in on Mr. Burnett once Craig of the Creek starts airing episodes next year).

No Steven Universe this week either. 🙁

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 155: That Will Be All

GC13 and David wrap up the Out of This World discussion by talking about That Will Be All.

When Ms. Sugar joins the storyboard team you know it’s going to be good, and That Will Be All didn’t disappoint at all. Though we unfortunately only just got to meet the Famethyst, at least we know Amethyst had some time to bond with her sisters in the background.

Poor (due to her plight yes, but maybe her abilities as well?) Holly Blue is left running a space station that is mysteriously placed. Where is it and why is it there? How was it accessed before the creation of the gravity engine? Will we ever know?

Still no re-runs scheduled. 🙁

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 154: The Zoo

GC13 and David talk about the reunion of Ste-Van and Ga-Reg: The Zoo.

The zoomans live in an idyllic little paradise (at the very least we don’t see much of it). They even seen to enjoy the choosening, so aren’t fazed by the one downside to their utopia (well, two if you count the lack of fry bits).

Even after Heartbreaker Greg dropped the big bomb on them (in just about the least-gentle way he possibly could), they’ll probably bounce back with the help of the Famethyst—the shipping must flow.

Will we see them again? It’s hard to imagine so many unique character designs being thrown out, but what will become of the zoomans?

No re-runs are scheduled this week either.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 153: Gem Heist

GC13, Isabelle, and David talk about the middle episode of the bomb: Gem Heist.

It’s another episode (kind of) involving future vision, so even if the line isn’t in the podcast we’ll go ahead and add it: why did they tell us about future vision? What did Sapphire see when she said their plan wouldn’t work? Did they change the future?

Anyway, Ruby was her adorbable self in this episode, though the cartoon conceit of characters not noticing anything they aren’t on screen for was stretched to its limits (and maybe beyond). Still, Ruby tuckered out after pounding on the door for a few seconds? Too cute.

There’s more Gem writing in this episode. Maybe some day we’ll be able to read it. One can hope…
