In Steven Universe, the world is protected from evil threats by the Crystal Gems, a group of intergalactic female warriors who use the power of special gem stones embedded on their bodies to summon magical weapons. Joining the cool-headed Garnet, the laid back Amethyst, and the gentle Pearl, is the unlikely fourth member of the team; the eponymous Steven, a young boy who inherited a gem stone from his mother, a Crystal Gem named Rose Quartz. As Steven tries to figure out the secrets to using his gem, he spends his days in Beach City doing activities with the other Crystal Gems, whether it's helping them save the universe or just hanging out.
This show is super cute and entertaining. From what I understand though, the ratings aren't doing so well..? The premiere for Steven Universe had lower ratings than the premiere for Uncle Grandpa. So I'd wholly suggest that anybody who can watch the new episodes on TV try and catch them on the TV, as opposed to just online.
I want to like this show really bad, but it's kind of boring from what I've watched. I'll give it a few more episodes before I pass complete judgement however. There are a lot of really neat concepts, I just think the show doesn't utilize them well enough.
Regardless, I love the Gems. They're pretty rad.

Steven reminds me a lot of my younger brother, who I love dearly, and the Gems remind me of some very maternal women in my life who helped raise me. So when I watch it, it's very cute on a personal level.
Also everything about this show I find very relatable. Just the other day I was fighting monsters with my super powers. But no seriously, I really like the characters of this show. This show gets me man.
