• Steven Universe Finale - Episodes Discussion/Streams

    Last time on StevenBall Future, Steven went Super-Steven and handily defeated Earth's most powerful warrior, Jasper. Now that Jasper swears her loyalty, there's only one place to go: Homeworld. Home of the most powerful gem warriors in the universe. Can Steven destroy the Diamonds and their guardian Spinel to achieve his rightful position as ruler of the universe? Peace was never an option.

    Tonight, we have four action packed episodes. The final four:

    Homeworld Bound:
    I mean honestly, the conquest probably take Steven all of 10 minutes. After all, the Diamonds don't suspect a thing. After casting their shattered remains into the core of the planet, Steven will be the ruler of the entire Gempire. The last Diamond standing. And then...

    Everything's Fine:
    You know what they say, the conquest is more fun than the kingdom. Even with Connie's extensive knowledge of political science and sociology, this Gempire won't run itself. Steven's a warrior now! He can't sit and hold court all day. But what to do? He beat everybody! There's no-one left! Unless...

    I Am My Monster:
    Unless he fights himself. That's right, it's time for the bout of the eon! But how will he pull it off? Cloning? Please. He's the ruler of all Gemkind now. He can just have them build another Hourglass! Armed with his brand new time machine, he's free to jump all throughout his own past, defeating himself as many times as he wishes. That is, unless he's defeated himself! The Hourglass gets damaged in the scuffle and catapults Steven into...

    The Future:
    This is it, folks, the whole point of the show. As Steven wanders around the temporal landscape, unstuck from time, he can observe the web of his potential futures spread out before him in a way Garnet only wishes she could.  How do most of them turn out? How many of them have him marrying Connie? How many of him show his lust for power and conquest overcoming and destroying him? How will he get out of this temporal purgatory and lock back into a timeline? And will he be able to pick the best one?

    Or not. I've been wrong about these predictions occasionally. Can't win 'em all!

    The Future comes to an end starting at 7 PM ET/PT on Cartoon Network. If you're unstuck from time and can't make it back in time for the show, Don't worry! We've got streams and downloads after the break.

    And hey, it's been quite a ride, hasn't it? On behalf of the Beach City Bugle staff, thank you for taking this journey with us. As we pull into this final stop, don't despair. After all, who knows what The Future holds?

    Here we are in The Future, and it's bright.

  • Mr. Universe / Fragments - Episode Discussion/Streams

    What's Greg been up to? How's Greg taking all of this? This future stuff? Steven growing up? Literally? Is it time for another Greg episode? Will there be a road trip? Will his hair grow back? Will there be lessons learned? Is anyone else going a little stir-crazy right about now?  Did anyone else lose all track of time and forget what day it was? Hey, do you suppose "Fragments" mean that this is a Greg episode because something terrible happens to Steven? Will terrible things ever stop happening to Steven? Will I ever run out of questions?

    Find out at 7 PM ET/PT on Cartoon Network! And if you're not trapped at home for the foreseeable future and are instead out saving the world, don't worry! We've got streams and downloads after the break.

  • Together Forever / Growing Pains - Episodes Discussion/Streams

    The Steven Universe fandom has had its rough patches. Long hiatuses. Uncertain airdates. Bloodstone. We've been stood up, messed around, and taken for fools. But this time around, we know what we're in for. With Steven Universe Future coming to a close at the end of the month, some of us ain't too proud to beg for more. It would take a strong, strong fan to stay going strong into the post-series era. But don't despair. We don't need to cry for help, Steven's here! And he's never gonna give us up, never gonna let us down. If we're willing to take him to our hearts, we'll be together forever.

    When you gonna tune in? 7:00 PM ET/PT on Cartoon Network, of course. But if taking him to your heart gives you growing pains, don't worry! We've got streams and downloads after the break.

  • In Dreams / Bismuth Casual - Episodes Discussion/Streams

    Sweet dreams! What are your dreams? Bismuth's dream is scaleable manufacturing! That's right, tonight, Bismuth gets down to business. Let the puns roll! I mean, it makes sense. She's great at forging weapons, but aside from Ronaldo, whom can she sell them to? Watch Bismuth go from a small, forge-on-demand Etsy weapon-smith, selling fine anime-inspired swords, to a multinational conglomerate selling dangerously-sharp collectibles! But is it lonely at the top? Will capitalism corrupt our corporate crystal collectible creator? Will she have a revelation about workers' rights, Undercover Boss style? Tune in and find out!

    Bismuth's business goes public at 7:00 PM ET/PT on Cartoon Network! If you're unsatisifed, make a complaint to your local Better Bismuth Bureau, and get your refund from the streams and downloads after the break.

  • Steven Universe Future Returns on March 6th!

    Guess we don't have to wait all year! Steven Universe Future will return on March 6th, airing the last 10 episodes from then until March 27th. Buckle up, folks, it's shaping up to be quite a ride!

  • Little Graduation / Prickly Pair - Episodes Discussion/Streams

    All that college prep is about to pay off, because Connie's graduating high school! If anyone would graduate early, it'd definitely be Connie. A wide world of academia awaits her! Which college will she go to? Are her perfect SAT scores enough to get her in the door of any institution she desires? And how far away is she willing to go? Will Steven forget that Warp Pads exist again, and try to convince her to go to a university within easy driving distance? I think they'd end up being quite a prickly pair if Steven tried to exert control over Connie's educational future...

    Which is the title of the second episode, so oops. There goes our hope of seeing Future Stevonnie.

    Connie's bright future starts at 8 PM ET/PT on Cartoon Network! If you can't set foot at a graduation ceremony without incurring crushing student debt, don't worry! We've got streams and downloads after the break.

  • Snow Day / Why So Blue? - Episodes Discussion/Streams

    It's a snow day! But Connie isn't about to let a few frosty flakes get between her and her education. Steven and Connie brave the elements to get Connie to school before the bell rings! Can their combination of skis, snowboards, and a "heavily modified" snowmobile Peridot made pull through where the school bus could not? Why didn't they just ask Lion? Also what's Connie going to do when she realizes the school is closed once she gets there?
    And following that up, it's another PSA episode where Sunstone helps Connie deal with the frostbite incurred in her last adventure. It'll be a festival of first-aid and frivolity! Either that or it's finally the Blue Pearl episode we didn't get from last week. Or maybe Blue and Yellow Zircon will show back up! Will we finally solve the mystery of why Yellow appeared to be green?

    The flurries start at 8 PM ET/PT on Cartoon Network! If you're snowed in and can't make it, don't be blue! We've got streams and downloads after the break.

  • Bluebird / A Very Special Episode - Episodes Discussion/Streams

     What's... up?
    Blue? Bird (Mom)? Why, this must be an episode about Blue Pearl! ...Is that still her name, or did Steven also nickname her after sports equipment? Guess we'll find out! It's also A Very Special Episode, so ... oh  no. Does Blue Pearl have a drug problem? Does she have a history of abuse?

    Well ok, she did used to belong to a diamond. I guess that last one wouldn't be too surprising. Please, don't hurt her! She's suffered so much already! She just wants to sketch and be happy! Don't make me cry again, Rebecca!

    The tears will flow tonight at 8 PM ET/PT on Cartoon Network. If you ... just can't... handle it right now... don't worry! We've got streams and downloads after the break.

  • Steven Universe Future - Episodes Discussion/Streams

    So ummmmmmm... turns out there's more!

    We've got a whole series more! And it begins tonight. Prepare to enter the Steven Universe Future! Just when you thought everything would be peaceful and happy now that Spinel has been quelled, Sugar does it to us again! What crazy adventures will Steven and the squad have now?

    Well tonight, we have four for ya:

    Little Homeschool:
    Ok, a little weird we'd be starting "Future" with a flashback, but I've personally always wondered how much schooling Steven really got growing up. It seems like he didn't attend a formal school, so the Crystal Gems must've taught him. But the only time we saw Pearl attempt just that, it didn't seem... well organized. Now we'll finally find out!

    Captain Lars and the Off-Colors are lost in space! Can Fluorite fix the guidance computer and figure out the way back home? Or will they just have to travel planet to planet, having adventures and solving crimes? Hey, it worked the first time! ... Or is this the first time? Is this episode another flashback? When do we get to the "Future"?

    Rose Buds:
    Um ok, apparently another flashback episode? In a time before Steven, we get to see Rose Quartz experimenting with her weird creeping moss! Or would you call it creepy moss? Lots of backstory being filled in tonight! But I hope we get to see the "Future"!

    In which Watermelon Tourmaline gets to finally play in that volleyball game she missed out on back in Beach Party! Finally, the "Future"! And with Gems playing casual sports, I'd say the future looks bright!

    This Steven Universe Future begins after the movie at 8PM ET/PT on Cartoon Network! But if you're living in The Future and don't have cable, don't worry! We've got streams and downloads after the break.
