So I had kind of a lousy day at work today, and seeing that this was an Onion episode was not really a great thing, which colored my reaction to it.

It wasn't definitively creepy and gross, so yay! But the ways in which it weren't . . . didn't really seem to make sense? Not recognizing that they were role-playing a car accident, which is a totally normal kid thing to do? The trench coat, enh, whatever (the picture of Garnet giving them a thumbs-up!). I don't really know if Steven was supposed to squish the winning bug or tap it gently, like knighting it—either it was the latter and that's why it survived for Onion to bring it to Steven, or Onion somehow miscalculated about Steven's morals, but I don't think that's consonant with the rest of the episode, but there's nothing conveyed. And Steven being all "woe is me I'm lonely, I see I was the weird one all along" was . . . also not very in-character? Just go wander down to the boardwalk and keep people company!

(Narrating his adventures with Onion was very Steven, but also excruciating because he's making up stories about someone who's RIGHT THERE.)

Bleh.

Apparently we are now on hiatus with no announced end date??!! Arrgh.

I was thinking about doing a rewatch, once the daily summer episodes ended and it felt so weird not to be thinking about SU so often, and I dunno, I still might—I didn't see a lot of the early episodes and one a day isn't really that much, though it might not be every weeknight.
