** Part of why a good number of fans tend to be very annoyed with episodes where Lars is the main character is because they all follow the exact same formula: The episode starts with Lars being a jerk, Steven somehow enters into the mix and something happens (either because of him or an outside force) that pits Lars, himself and anyone surrounding them (like Sadie or the Cool Kids) in a difficult situation, they overcome it and Lars learns that he shouldn't be such a complete jerk... [[AesopAmnesia only to forget the lesson he just learned the next time the show focuses on him]], making all of his episodes feel pointless and repetitive. Even "The Good Lars" and "Stuck Together" despite being seen as the best Lars episodes thus far, are still guilty to a lot of the same trappings with the only real differences being that both episodes have him admitting to the flaws that makes him so unlikable in the eyes of many and they don't end with him learning the same old "Don't be such a jerk" lesson again (though in the case of the former, it's only because [[spoiler:he gets kidnapped by Aquamarine and Topaz]]). This is part of why some would prefer for Lars to be written out of the series entirely.

** Extremely [[DownPlayedTrope downplayed]] with Lars. While there are still plenty of fans who still don't give a crap about him even after "The Good Lars" and "Stuck Together" because of his earlier actions (which plays into the latter being listed under JustHereForGodzilla) plus being very annoyed that [[spoiler:he was the one left on the spaceship to become a key player in the long awaited Homeworld arc]], both episodes having him own up to the flaws that makes him so unlikable in the eyes of many (him owning up to nobody liking him in the former and the latter having him self loathing the fact that he's a wimp and a weakling) has at the very least 'promoted' him to BaseBreakingCharacter than the outright [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] that he's been up to this point.

** Garnet's excitement about Steven and Connie fusing into Stevonnie makes a lot more sense in light of the events in "Jailbreak" and "The Answer".

* JustHereForGodzilla: For the fans who still feel nothing for Lars even after supposedly being RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap in "The Good Lars" & "Stuck Together", they tend to remember the latter episode only for the stuff with Aquamarine & Topaz.

** Only one episode after her debut in "Are You My Dad?", [[spoiler:Aquamarine crossed it big time in "I Am My Mom". In order to try and get Steven to tell her where she can find "My Dad" as part of her mission of retrieving six "Types" of humans, she threatens to '''''murder''''' the ones that she & Topaz have already captured (Connie, Sadie, Jamie, Onion and Lars) because [[LoopholeAbuse Homeworld never specified whether they wanted the humans they were ordered to retrieve alive or dead]]!]]

** "Chille Tid" has both this issue and ItsShortSoItSucks. Steven's ability to speak with Lapis mentally is used for all of three minutes, and in the end, we never learn where she and Jasper are or if Garnet found anything important, and the subplot of finding the Fused Homeworld Gems was dropped until "Super Watermelon Island" where they are finally defused for the Week of Sardonyx and Peridot's redemption arc, where they were only mentioned in "Nightmare Hospital" and "Cry for Help" despite the Crystal Gems currently focused on finding Peridot.

* ItsShortSoItSucks: One of the most common complaints about the show is it's 11 minute run-time, which makes several episodes too short to properly tell their stories, and instead makes them feel rushed.

** "Keystone Motel". Steven, Garnet and Greg take a road trip to a neighboring state. It could have given Garnet and Greg a chance to get closer, or given us a good look at a part of the world beyond Beach City. Instead, Greg is just a side character for the episode, and the plot is instead about Ruby and Sapphire arguing about the previous episode, not realizing the way they're acting is affecting Steven.
