I can't be the only one here watching this show right? In any case I highly recommend it. Its brilliant in how it builds itself and its lore all through background details and not heavy exposition dumps. For that reason its one of the few shows I really say you should watch from the beginning.

Anyone else?

Nameless got me into it and I watch 2 whole seasons over a weekend.

It is a really good binge show. I think the one thing I hate about it is how they release them. They tend to shot gun it.

"Here's an episode every day for two months! Ok, now we won't have any to show for another three months"

Yeah, it wasn't until I was halfway through blitzing the series that Nameless made a crack to me about the hiatus at the time. Cartoons are torture, man. Episode releases for so many shows can be so irregular and the wait can be excruciating.

I watched about 5 or 6 episodes and couldn't get into this show at all. Not saying it is bad, but I just couldn't get into it. Which has felt odd to me. A huge chunk of people I know have gone crazy for the show and told me to check it out after I already checked out on it. They all find it fascinating, but I just don't. It's like the animated version of 30 Rock, for me. Everyone I know, who I usually share entertainment tastes with, love it and I can't seem to get into it.

Not to fully side-track this conversation, but could I suggest Gravity Falls? Because, oh damn...

Funnily enough I heard such good things about Steven Universe and Gravity Falls and I couldn't decide which to watch. I basically flipped a coin and Steven Universe won out.

I will say the show can be a little slow to start, as I recall. It definitely starts more as just a weird kid show. Once it starts building into the lore it gets much better. In that way its a really good coming of age story. You see everything from Steven's perspective and at first he's just this weird little kid. As he learns more, you learn more and the world becomes less black and white.

I only started SU because I was sad after the end of GF.

Yeah, since GF has a definite end I'm really considering just marathoning it
