This is a five-night event miniseries happening on Cartoon Network this week. If last night's episodes were any indication, it's going to be pretty incredible - but given that it's 10 15-minute episodes, it doesn't seem like it would lend itself to 10 separate posts. I would think activity in any given one of them would be low, and I think the story is going to be worth talking about as a whole. Could we make a post for it as a film instead? Anyone else interested in talking about this show?

Of this masterpiece of product placement, the AV Club says "the grotesque ugliness of the animation alone would be a deal-breaker even if the film weren’t also glaringly inappropriate in its sexuality, nightmare-inducing in its animation, and filled with Nazi overtones and iconography even more egregiously unfit for children than the script’s wall-to-wall gauntlet of crude double entendres and weird intimations of interspecies sex. "Thanks" to hellojed for his FPP informing me of the existence of this monstrosity.
With Adventure Time and The Legend of Korra off the air for now, are people interested in talking about Steven Universe, another cartoon with a measure of depth to it?
