I'm pretty sure I can watch several episodes that have previously come out over and over again. It's all just so good, and you pretty much nailed how I feel about this show as well. It's special and I'm glad to be a part of it.
I have done that exact thing with some of them! (Especially shipping and character development episodes because I am shameless. XD) It's a pretty well-rounded show and I love it. I feel that way too--I definitely look forward to both the new episodes and the fan content spurred on by them.
Steven Universe is a show where I enjoy it in its entirety without caring too much about shipping. I like a couple of the canon ships but that's about it. I guess it's just that good. It's also one of the few shows i'm able to keep up with, I make it a point to do so cuz I love it so much. And plus if I don't keep up, then I'll see spoilers all over my dash.
