On Steven Universe, Giant Robots Are Only Second To The Power Of Friendship

Steven Universe is a show about a lot of things: love, accepting people for who they are, the power of friendship and kindness. Sometimes, it explores those concepts like any other show would.

Limitless: This Show Should Be Popping More Super Pills to Crank Up the Goofiness

This week on Limitless, we learn that a super drug—that grants you Watson-like mental powers but also destroys your body—is actually an effective dating tool, as well. But surprise!
