I love how the show is action-y and has cool fight scenes and still tried nonviolent conflict resolution first almost every time. I like how Steven tries to make his enemies his friends first and foremost, and is always trying to help them (Jasper). And I like that they show people as 'bad' for being jerks for no reason, when they show someone as being only bad (Kevin). Mainly, I just think this is an incredibly well-written show.
Sometimes people don’t deserve forgiveness because their crimes are far too large, though Steven’s optimism and child like confidence that everyone has good in them if they just had someone to help them always puts me in a good mood. It’s like- now, as an adult, I can see irl the bad in people, for both forgivable things and those things that are so bad they can’t be forgiven. But that innocence, that hope, that longing to unconditionally help people from the eyes of a child like Steven is so refreshing and sweet to me. It’s different in the real world and all… but in the show, it puts me at ease
