The confusion went on for weeks, it wasn't just a flat joke, it was an experience. It's the fresh content and reactions like that which I miss the most, and can't wait to experience again. I truly hope we get episode cards again like the first season.
I didn't mind that joke too much, but it was certainly out of place referencing it 2-3 times in a short space of time. Again I think that's one of the legitimate criticisms of the first season, but it looked to be getting more secure in what it wanted to do by the finale and then the italian stallion appeared.>>80287703
Well as of yet there's not what I'd call feels or a gentle tone, however the beginnings of a story underneath all the wacky hijinks begins later into the season. Monsters play a big part in the show as the main force of antagonists, and their history is touched upon through the medium of Toffee who is the big bad of the show; he's certainly a high point to look forward to.
I would say that if you enjoy the interaction of the gems and Steven, then you'll love the relationship between Star and Marco. After the first few episodes they really build up their friendship naturally, they do things that friends would do and you can see them developing as individuals as the season goes on, much like Steven.
If you liked the characters in GF you'll like them here too, again much of it is weighted on Marco and Star for now, but it's done so well that it makes for an enjoyable watch. Season 2 seems promising in terms of secondary cast development, so even if the show doesn't radiate with you initially, then try it again with season 2.
