SU Review: “The New Crystal Gems”

2.10%20The%20New%20Crystal%20Gems-thumb-633x334-564932[1]

So while Steven and the Crystal Gems were in outer space rescuing Greg, Connie went to Steven’s house where she meets Lapis and Peridot. They try to fill the roles of the Gems. Connie will play the part of Steven, Peridot will be “The Garnet”, Lapis will be Amethyst, and Pumpkin will be Pearl. Their first misson:  Clean the head on top of Mayor Dewey’s van. Despite trying to act out the Gems’ roles, Peridot does her thing levitating the van while Lapis waterbends to wash the car and Connie and Pumpkin dries. That works out well, but when half the town comes to see the spectacle, things unravel.

Peridot slips into Peridot mode because she feel Lapis is not fully performing as Amethyst. A quarrel ensues and Yellow Tail’s truck ends up in the sign. Since Connie is not Steven, she settles things with an angry speech instead of a typical Steven speech (which could be angry at times) and says it’s okay that they are not the Crystal Gems, they are the Crystal Temps and fix the mess and present Greg with a new sign for the car wash.

It was nice to see the dynamic between Connie, Peridot, and Lapis. Peridot and Lapis are a great comedy tandem whenever they are together. While Lapis may go a bit Dory in remembering Connie, she does do a reasonably well Amethyst. This was really a breather episode after last week’s arc, but was a pretty funny episode featuring the neat collection of secondary characters.

Stevenbomb 5 Begins Monday, Weekly Episodes Starting February 10th

I honestly have to admit that I had forgotten that the Steven Bomb was about to drop.  That’s because if you hadn’t found out by now, the episodes were purposely leaked earlier in the month.  If I remember the story, one of the Non-US branches of the online app had the episodes available for a day, and then removing them.  Since this is the internet, much like old VHS tapes and television stations, the episodes were recorded and distributed across the globe.  I know many attempt to hide from spoilers, but its gotten pretty hard to do so in this day and age.

StevenBomb V, begins Monday, January 30th at 7pm EST with a double episode, Steven’s Dream and Adventures in Light Distortion.  Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday are your standard 11 minute episodes, Gem Heist, The Zoo and That Will Be All.

Then starting on February 17th, SU will return to a regular single episode time slot in the Friday Night Lineup on Cartoon Network, with The New Crystal Gems airing on the 10th and Storm in the Room on the 17th.

That’s all for now.
