This episode of Steven Universe, The Big Show was an exception, and was nothing less than fantastic! If nothing else, she deserves this. I find it very inspiring. Steven asks if she's okay to which she responds saying she's fine. Steven closes out the tape. Greg This is good stuff! Dismay turns to confusion as Greg laughs and explains his parents wanted nothing to do with his music, and wanted to hear nothing about it because they thought he was throwing his life away.
Sadie Killer and the Suspects! Backstage, the band celebrates and the punky lady comes backstage. Barb mugs for the camera briefly, then recognizes her daughters discomfort and backs off, leaving them to rehearse. Greg It's kind of amazing that your mom is excited about your band. She offers to help, to which Sadie angrily turns down, shouting that they discussed Barb overstepping Sadie's boundaries. Greg springs for Fog machines. Could you give me a hand with the gro-- Oh! The most wholesome goddamn thing. This could be fine, but that dynamic has never been one of the strongest on the show.
Showing that though made it big we arent expecting everyone to thus their journey feels more special because of what we know with greg. I can't believe I kind of wanted her to be there. The band hires Greg as their manager, who hooks them up with producer Sunshine Justice for a performance in Empire City, though Sadie worries about her mother getting in the way. Then the figure showing resemblance to Barb walks out. The Fog Of War and our lasers. This could be a sign of the show moving in a new direction or perhaps even wrapping up certain plots.
They make a really good team. Writing-wise, he may well be my favorite character in the show. Barb asks Greg why he bought so much stuff, and he responds that it's all for the band, telling Barb that he's their manager, which Barb laughs at. Barbara What are you talking about, an old duffer like you managing a band? It's your old friend, Mr. Perhaps this comes from the notion that our society has that some of the best creativity comes from adversary, that some of the greatest art was created to prove others wrong or to vent out frustration. Steven You should see them live. By the time of their concert, they manage a much better funeral theme, with Buck, Jenny and Sour Cream dressed in black dress suits, and Sadie dressed in white to emulate a ghost.
Next up: planning for the gig. Sour Cream Here, check it out. A creepy organ opening is followed by a Ska riff and Sadie sings the bands newest number, G-G-G-Ghost. Footage transitions to Sadie Killer and the Suspects in costume doing a live performance for Greg in Sadie's room. The episode ends On their way home, as Sadie admits to Steven that she had gone all-out on stage because she thought it was her mom in the audience, and decides to make make it up to her by having Greg arrange their next show to be in Beach City and inviting her. The woman in the audience who resembled Barbara walks backstage. The song ends, and the audience cheers and applauds.
Apologies for getting so mushy, but honestly, that just shows the power of Steven Universe, that there is something to relate to in every episode. Steven Sounds like a big crowd out there. Greg is inside on his phone. Jenny, Buck, and Sour Cream are onstage; a coffin rises out of the stage and Sadie bursts out. Footage transitions to Greg driving the band home.

The Recap: Steven films a documentary about Sadie and Killers as they find a manager Greg and begin their climb to fame. It's just really nice to see. Then it cuts to backstage, as the band prepares the stage with the equipment. Overall, this is a fine episode, but, more than anything, it feels somewhat like a stall, which is fine, but Steven Universe can be better than that. Steven explains he wants early footage to look old, while the band discusses songs and the effects Sadie wants to have with her voice.
It's our first big show! There's a brief shot of the band kids excitedly sitting in the van, then they're backstage at Sunshine Justices venue. I'll stay out of your hair. Greg decides to take the offer. The Cool Kids place their hands on her. Greg And we got about six more cameras in the back of the van. And this whole look you guys have going is really fun! Barbara arrives with some packages. Many of the human characters especially are dealing with how they feel about their parents or siblings.
Barb backs off again and Sadie groans in dismay, explaining how suffocating her mother can be, and she's just waiting for a chance to interfere. Barb understands that she needs her space and leaves in the Mail Truck. I think you'd be a great manager. Universe, let's play our next show in Beach City. I still do that sometimes because its makes me uncomfortable to see people that uncomfortable especially more so than any putz stammering around or a guy failing at flirting. But in her hurry to hide the truth from Barb, Sadie knocks over the banner announcing the band live at Empire City.
I'll e-mail you a link. They never came to one of my shows. Greg I'll e-mail her back right away! Barbara You know you can play while I'm in the house. I'm noticing some great faces from Sadie. This is a huge deal! It's probably hard to hear over the phone. Sadie has this alter ego, and -- Greg Huh? We're still mostly playing, uh, well, basements. Then, after a few star transitions and more static, we get a shot of Steven drawing some posters to advertise the gig, while Greg and the band consult what props they'll need.
