Usually I only get two days off a week, which is fairly normal don’t get me wrong. However, I don’t know a single soul who thinks two days is enough and the only reason they don’t ask for a third is because those extra hours are what pays for some of their bills. Back to my point! I was getting ready for bed last night when I got a text from my manager that he’d made some last minute schedule changes and I was, now, off tomorrow (today). Cue the happy dance!
You see, I’ve been trying to catch up on Steven Universe for some time, now and I’d finally sat down and watched everything except the movie which I was saving for today. But, now that I knew I’d be off, I just said “fudge this” and stayed up till 1AM watching it. I gotta agree with Nickie G, though. It wasn’t really that great of a movie. Granted, I’m happy Steven looks his age, but the movie felt like they were running out of ideas. Steven was literally doing the same things he did in the past 5 seasons. There wasn’t much growth in the movie, just a new character with a familiar problem and a familiar outcome. I did like that Spinel wasn’t as easily swayed as some of the other antagonists, though. Come on, Steven, you gotta do more than sing to help characters realize the error of their ways!
So, now that I’m caught up on that series, I get to jump back into another series: Miraculous Ladybug! I’m partway through it and it’ll be hard to catch up on since the episodes are longer, but I do enjoy the show. Even though I’m 21 years old, I still have an affinity for kids TV shows, especially ones like Steven Universe that explore more relatable problems. It’s funny, back when I went on my trip to Maine, I was talking to Monroe about Miraculous and a kid that was playing cards with their friends nearby had heard me say how much I enjoyed the show. She told me she liked it too, which was nice since I don’t get to talk to people outside my friends group about fandoms much anymore. I need to start going to conventions again, but why do they have to be so expensive?
So, what’s a good kids show you’d recommend that I watch?
