A young boy takes his mother's place in a group of gemstone-based beings, and must learn to control his powers.

I had no idea this show existed or even what it was about until I kept seeing things on Tumblr about it and after having a look at the plot, I decided to give it a go – something to just play in the background.


It starts out funny and charming but as the seasons goes on, it gets some drama and seriousness into it, somehow though it still manages to keep it light and funny without ruining those moments.

The four lead characters (Steven, Garnet, Amethyst and Pearl) are brilliant and always entertaining to watch but so are all the little characters, who aren’t just random nobodies walking behind the leads; they all have a story and a purpose for being there, even if it’s just something small.

There’s a big family feel that is always present in the show; between the lead four, Steven and his dad, Greg, and even the whole town!

The animation is always bright, colourful and smooth; the story is interesting and leaves you hooked and while the first season may be 52 episodes long – they are only 11-minute episodes and still that doesn’t seem enough!

There is a lot of music to this show, something I didn’t expect, but it isn’t random pop songs; they are clever, funny and catchy original songs – especially the theme song. They need to release a soundtrack!

I absolutely love this show, I can’t think of anything negative to say about it and I think it caters to both adults and children.

I don’t know what I’ll do when I’m all caught up!
