GC13, Ken, Isabelle, Sophia, and David discuss the final four episodes of Steven Universe: Future: Homeworld BoundEverything’s FineI Am My Monster, and The Future.

You saw the episodes. What should we say here? How about a request? What ways do you think that Jasper will carry on her campaign of petty evil through Beach City?

This was the grand sendoff to the series, and it ended the only way it could. The way we always knew it would. It was tearfully beautiful.

The Cat: Infinity Train’s (Mostly) Honest Guide

Few characters in Infinity Train are as enigmatic as The Cat. A confidence artist by trade, she nevertheless comforts Tulip that her number is in fact not counting down to her death. Yes, The Cat does try to con Tulip out of One-One, but she had good reason. By season two of Infinity Train, she’s playing a purely helpful role for our new protagonists.

The Cat does what any denizen of the Infinity Train does: she helps passengers. Sure, she may grift along the way, but she’s there to help when it matters. If Infinity Train gets a third season it looks like Grace will be the new protagonist, so everyone is curious to see what The Cat has in story for her.

Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 288: Mr. Universe and Fragments

GC13, Ken, Isabelle, Sophia, and David break down Mr. Universe and Fragments.

Oh boy those were sure two episodes, weren’t they? Do you remember back when Steven was happy? We do.

So did Steven have a bad childhood? Does he know how to pick his mentors or what? These episodes should have you ready for the finale, because regardless of what’s coming there’s a lot to take care of, and only four episodes to go.

OK K.O.! and the Art of the Crossover

OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes featured five crossovers over its three seasons, and each of them was done differently. A Hero’s Fate concluded the story of showrunner Ian Jones-Quartey’s old webcomic, The Power is Yours brought is Captain Planet, Crossover Nexus unified four current Cartoon Network shows, Monster Party wrote Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School into Enid’s backstory, and Let’s Meet Sonic… Well, we met Sonic.

It took three things for OK KO to make these crossovers well: a wild world where anyone can exist, no place on the power scale for guest characters, and a whole heaping nostalgia for the old shows being crossed over with. With those ingredients, OK KO made four excellent nostalgia trips and a great crossover for Cartoon Network’s current franchises.
