coprime: an awesome lady stepping out of a boat (Default)

So I've been looking for something for the BF and me to watch together for ages. I think the last thing we managed to watch all the way through was Hikaru no Go three or four years ago. (I say he is far too picky, but it's more just that we have very disparate tastes. For example, he's also watching Game of Thrones at the moment, which is a big ol' pile of nope for me.)

But Steven Universe seems to have come to my rescue! It was pretty cute too. I started watching the few episodes on demand has for free, and while I know he often half pays attention to stuff I watch, it's hard to tell how much attention he's actually paying. But then later that evening, he sat next to me on the sofa and asked, "So, did the on demand have a lot of season one episodes that I missed?"

And now we're slowly making our way through the entire series. (So many spoiled reveals due to the most recent 10 episodes being the ones we saw first, haha, but that is how I roll.)

I was not expecting him to like Steven Universe! The show does manage a great blend of earnest sweetness, fun, humor, and science fiction though. Ahh, I can't decide if I want to go search out meta or leave things be so we can both watch the rest of the series without any more prior knowledge. ...Okay, I'm going with the second option, not really a debate, but I sort of wish I had someone else in my life with whom I could talk about things. I don't even know what I want to say about this show, only that I think it's super enjoyable and smarter than I thought it would be going into it.
