Lunar Sea Spire podcast episode 129: Tiger Philanthropist

GC13 and Sophia talk about the newest, mewest episode: Tiger Philanthropist.

If ever there was a time where Lars was all of us, this was it (though we are not an individual, we are complex!). As individuals we do appear to be a lot better at knowing what we want than Lars, but then we’re not stand-ins for a thousands-strong fandom.

So even if the episode could have stood to have a bit more time to really stretch its arms out and settle into place, we got some fun wrestling. It wasn’t as good as Tiger Millionaire, but it didn’t have to be.

Besides, the Good Looking Gang ended up with the tag-team belts. Though they may not be as great as the Jungle Duo, the Good Looking Gang were always worthy competitors, and we wish them luck in their future matches.

    I get that Sophia would consider season 1 slow if you went in knowing the show became more plot-heavy later on, but as it was airing I actually considered it was going pretty fast. Since Rebecca’s last thing she worked on was Adventure Time and that was my frame of reference, I expected the little lore hints we got early on wouldn’t be addressed until season 2 or 3. This was why Ocean Gem and what followed was such a massive surprise.

    I felt they addressed why Amethyst quite pretty well. Besides her no longer feeling she needed it, Amethyst just didn’t really think of how it would affect others and kind of just did it on a whim, which is very in-character.

    An interesting thing you made me realize is how similar Lars’ reaction to being appealed to in entertainment is to his reaction to being accepted and loved. He makes a big deal about wanting to get attention from the Cool Kids, but when love and attention is actually given to him by Steven and Sadie, he reacts negatively to it.

    It’s too bad we didn’t see a return of the Loch Ness Bloggster.

    Where are the ratings?

      In a word, catastrophic.

      The three previous episodes were the three least-watched episodes in the whole series at 1.06, 1.02, and 1.10 million. With Cartoon Network continuing to bet on the “let’s not tell anyone there are new SU episodes coming up” strategy, this past Friday’s episode barely hit 900 K.

    Okay, first of all, what the heck?!

    Tiger Philanthropist is one of the good enough episodes I’ve seen in a while. But why doesn’t CN advertise the new SU episodes (sans the Bloodstone clickbait)? Teen Titans Go favoritism? 900k…that’s a new low.
