Steven Universe

Why You Should Be Watching ‘Steven Universe’

‘Steven Universe’ is a coming-of-age story about a boy named Steven and his three surrogate parents, members of an all-female alien race known as “gems”. The first season slowly introduces characters, themes, and drops hints about characters’ pasts, the race of gems, and the ancient war in which Steven’s mother died long ago. But for every tidbit of information, there are new questions.
