SU Review: “The Answer”


Well, here we are. Another #StevenBomb, another massively anticipated set of episodes and we start with arguably the most anticipated of them all. It’s midnight and officially Steven’s Birthday (his birthday, not the next episode) and Garnet wishes him a happy birthday and goes on to tell the story of how Ruby and Sapphire once met some 5,750 years ago. Sapphire was an aristocrat who could see into the future and has foreseen everything in her life up to this point. Ruby is one of her guards and it turns out rubies are guards in Homeworld.

Preview: Steven’s Birthday


(Edited 11pm ET)

Thanks to MKody in our comment section for filling in the details.  Earlier in the day a fan page on Facebook known as A Steven’s Guide to the Universe posted a preview for the upcoming episode, Steven’s Birthday, due out on Tuesday during Steven Bomb 4: Steven’s Birthday Week.  The video isn’t the typical preview seen handed out to the various media sites as it included the title screen card, and ended abruptly (compared to media previews where its edited nicely at the right points).  Turns out the old Turner ship has a few leaks.  But first, that preview.

Seems one of Turner’s data servers has been a little leaky, technically not as secure as it should be.  This isn’t uncommon in at least the realm of cartoons, sometimes its previews, musical clips, and sometimes its entire episodes.  These episodes are shipped around to various data servers to serve a purpose, be it a preview to various entertainment sites or the episode being uploaded to their own internal streaming service.  We saw a lot of this in the realm of MLP, namely Entertainment Weekly previews and at the start of Season 4 with The Hub.

As pointed out a torrent user known as misseps was able to find the mystical rabbit hole and at one point was pulling full episodes from the void, then just two minute clips.  Thus the actual source of these videos.

There is also now a two minute clip of The Answer, which was mostly seen in another preview earlier in the week.  Might be an interesting week.

Ratings Report: MLP100, StevenBomb 2, and Star

007 - Derpy Scrunchface

For “Slice of Life”, fans around the world joined in meetup groups and/or attended special screenings like yours truly did at MLP-MSP in Minnesota, or even watched online. None of that counts in the 431,000 estimated that watched the show on Discovery Family. Easily the most disappointing figure since “Pinkie Pride’s” 459,000 back on February 1st, 2014.

I have mentioned the challenges repeatedly for MLP to attain the ratings success of Season 4 from the 11-month wait between seasons, the bye weeks within the season, that we’re in Summer, and that it’s on a channel that’s mostly included in premium packages for digital cable and maybe dish providers. The show would easily get more viewers on Cartoon Network or Disney, but they would likely get a lousy time slot as well since it is not their show. That’s all I’m going to say about that.


Steven Universe began the 2nd #StevenBomb on Monday night and just missed the two million mark with “Sworn to the Sword” (1.980M).”Winter Forecast” was the last episode to attain that back on February 19th of this year. Monday’sepisode was the most-watched of Season Two so far and brings its average for the season to 1.663 million per episode.


Star vs. the Forces of Evil also came back on Monday night and drew decent figures in its first new showing since April. The pairing of “Mewberty” and “Pixtopia” drew an estimated 737,000 viewers on Disney XD. That raises its average on Disney XD to 724,200 an episode.

Look to the sidebar at the home page for the latest episodes for each of these shows.
