So, any thoughts on Season 5 so far? Other than "Tanks For The Memories", I think the season has been doing alright, at least by its standards.


Ehh. I start to lose a bit the interest in the show. Which I expected, but still.
Opinion about the episodes:

Two Parter: Was surprisingly decent. I liked Starlight in the way as that she was this sort of cult leader villain and it was nice to see Twilight not being the main focus on the episode. Side characters were the "stars" of it in the end.

Castle Sweet Castle: Premise was a bit weak, but some good visual gags here and there. Actually expected the episode to end with all moving in with Twilight. Surprised that was not the case

The rest... eh. Fourth one was dull. Tanks for the memories was not a stinker, but I think it is a prime example of how the show is NOT as well writen as others claimed a few years ago. Why? Many people pointed out the show was with a character goign through the five stages of grief. Which would have been okay if the episode was about a pet dying of old age or so. Instead it is just hibernation. I just got the impression, they wanted to do a dead pet episode, but someone said no. Why? Because kid's shows are not supposed to do that? I remember some Rugrats episode about it, so no excuse there. If the show would really be as "good" as some say, they would ahve gone through with it. And the Rodeo episode was okay. I just found the last third not as "hilarious" as they may have wanted with the slapstick.

I would sincerely be okay with this one being the last season.

I think I remember that one. Chuckie had a pet pill bug that died. Yeah, it's coming back to me.

On the one hand, that probably would have made it better. Either go big or go home, as they say. At the very least, Rainbow Dash's insanity might have been slightly more understandable. On the other, I really can't see this show in its current state pulling something off with that much emotional weight. Like I said, it would make it better, but only in that you have one less stupid thing to deal with. Most of the problems the characters have, outside the ones caused by major baddies like Queen Chrysalis, Tirek and Starlight Glimmer, are typical slice-of-life stuff. If they had practiced with this type of subject at the beginning of the series, they might have better writing experience and could have made this a better episode. As it is, any attempt at something like death would come across like your average "special episode" you see in a third-rate sitcom. Worst case scenario, you go into Madoka Magica or Ctrl-Alt-Del Miscarriage territory.

Did they really just put a reference to Dumb and Dumber in the animation?

I don't see this as a good sign. If the episode is shit, the pandering is going to be the least of its problems, but, nonetheless, it's the tip of the iceberg thing, if you get my drift.

BTW, wouldn't Discord look goofy enough in a regular tux? And given the extremely colorful and cutesy nature of the show, the "wearing the goofy suit covered in Starburst dye" just doesn't work as a joke, especially when you compare it to how Dumb and Dumber itself pulled it off.

If it did come out, was it as stupid and hamfisted as I know it is?

Yes, actually, I believe it aired a few weeks ago.

It was basically just a cult and the villain was power-hungry, so she tricked everyone into being equal so she was the only special one. There was some 1984-esque elements but other than that it was pretty safe. People who praise it for being bold by featuring "communism" need to learn what communism fucking is.

Stupid? Yeah. Hamfisted? Not too much, but, given that this is MLP we're talking about, that's like saying having a kidney stone is not as bad as having kidney cancer.

I think Maniak was spot on about the recent episode. Also, if you've seen Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade, specifically the part where they reach the final resting place of the Holy Grail, you know how it's going to turn out.

As for the Discord episode, it was severely hit and miss for me. When it's good, it's halfway decent, when it's bad, it's the usual autistic bullshit.

Weren't you totally on board with it when the show supposedly made a MGS reference with Twilight (again, supposedly - I don't buy it) dressing like Snake? What makes this different?

Well, at least with the "Twilight as Snake" reference, they tried to make an actual joke out of it. I leave it to you on whether or not it was a good joke, but at least they made the effort. The box (and the Dumb and Dumber suits for that matter) were just dangling keys in front of the audience.
