I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
My sister got me into this and I snagged a whole bunch of the comics on sale. They're fun, they're cute, they're heartwarming. And I've been so depressed I can barely do anything today.
That being said, I loved the setup: Steven takes the Gems camping and they tell scary stories. Except the story that Pearl tells - the one she and Garnet came up with to scary Amethyst into behaving when she was much, much younger - is too effective. Steven freaks out more than Amethyst ever did.
Still, it's lovely to see all these characters again. They get irritated with each other at times, but at the core of this show - and these comics - is the deep, deep love they all feel for each other. Love, love, love this so much!
