SU is worse then ttg because it was a great premise that was handled in absolutely the worst way it could have possibly been
Let's start with a general observation. Everybody in this show is FUCKING RETARDED. You couldn't name one person in this show who could be considered intelligent or educated aside from Connie's mom, and she lets her daughter fight space monsters along side niegh immortal light worriors . Everyone is written like neurotic teeny boppers, even gems like peridot who start off as cold, calculating and intelligent get bummed down into blithering idiots the SECOND they stop becoming a threat. Sugar does not know how to write a competent and we'll adjusted person because she is not one, and niether is anyone on her crew .
The art is lazy, inoffensive and simple backgrounds and horribly inconsistent characters. The animation has no weight , the camera and character positioning and shots are unispired or do nothing to set a tone 99% of the time . It's all a big lazy shitty turd to the eyeballs .
The story might be the most offensive thing about the show. We're like 4 seasons in and we still don't know shit. The jump from gems adventuring and doing cool shit to townies jacking each other off to gems jacking off about the past but not really because fuck actually commiting to anything , let's act like something's happening, drop it for something else and never talk about it again. Remember artifacts ? Remember corrupted gems? Remember that dude who went around looking for gem shit that gave the impression that the world actually wasn't ignoring gems ? Haha no forget about that, let's focus on beach city politics and Connie yelling at Steven because her feelings got hurt. I can't wait for two years from now when we're a quarter into the next season and someone has to say "hey you guys remember that Lars dude? Whatever happened with him?"
Nobody knows what the fuck they're doing on this show. Not the characters , not the fans, and not the writers
