New episode. It was fun.



Why the Bioshock: Infinite reference? That's like comic-levels of stupid references.

Because being an animator can be really fucking boring.

I liked this episode. A friend of mine said it reminded him of some quest in Runescape where you run around trading things until you get what the original questor asked for. For the most part it was paced well, no dips where it felt like things were taking too long.

What I didn't like was relatively minor.

Twilight doing nothing and being boring again.

The part where Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy are trying to get the dog to the other booth, and Dash has a dumb attack in which she forgets she can fly over the crowd.

The voice of that animal handler didn't fit AT ALL. He sounded like grandpa Simpson, what the hell?

Oh yeeeaah. That pony in the wheel chair.

He reeks of OC. That had to be an OC.

The brown coat and purple mane did reek of OC-itus. But even then I wouldn't fault the episode for that.

But there was also a commercial for the next couple of episodes, and this showed up:

If this means changelings I'm gonna eat my hat, though I sadly doubt it.

The premise is that Spike casts some spell or other to give Rarity inspiration, or something. I imagine her different colored magic owes to that spell.

Well it isn't a bad thing. The color scheme of that pony just stood out A LOT. I couldn't help but point at it and go "...what?"

Then I learned it was for a cause and shrugged.

Seconding this. I doubt this sort of thing is scripted. Whereas in the comics, they have "And then a pointless Mable Pines look-alike shows up for no reason" as a plot point, having background characters who sort of resemble the Luteces is just the animators entertaining themselves. Ditto the Slenderman reference earlier in the season.

For more context: It's the difference between having Derpy make a scripted appearance as Rainbow Dash's replacement, and Derpy floating around in a snowglobe in a five second close-up.

Amen. I had no probs with those in the background cause they did not really have any effect on what happened. You want shitty reference? Read a MLP comic by Andy Price, where the shit interacts with you.

As for wheelchair pony, was surprised about it myself, but I thought "eh, whatever. OC design or not, still looked better than in 85% of all cases I know". Heck, I thought the voice acting was still okay. Now learing it was actually for a cause I have now to give the show some bonus points.


But if you want something to smash your head against the wall...
shake it, you ugly monster high like dolls

yeah, someone on Hasbro screwed up and released a EqG-2 short around three weeks before it should air on ytb. They tried damage control and deleted it again, but of course it got safed. But looking at that thing... oh fuck. tis thing will be the FFX-2 of MLP, but without the song 1000 Words.

Speaking of the comic, it would seem the latest issue with Celestia and Star Swirl doesn't have many stupid references. At least off the top of my head, I don't remember. Plus it actually looks pretty interesting.

On the subject of the movie . . . why is Twilight going back there again?

"Cody could do nothing but surrender to the all-consuming kiss. It was as if every nerve ending in his body led directly to his cock. He ground his hips against the man in an effort to get closer, which solicited another growl from the chest of the larger wolf. He reached down to grab hold of Codyís ass and pressed them closer still. As soon as he became capable of rational thought again, Cody narrowed it down to only one. Itís him! He wanted to scream it to the entire world. Itís him! He found me!"

When animators get bored things can get...interesting. Like story boards of Disney characters being a lot less than wholesome.


Twilight probably has to jump through the mirror again because everyone in ponyland is so inept, the damn crown got stolen AGAIN.

Also wow. Was that literally the climax of the movie in a single clip.

I am actually more interested in the econd part of it, cause then the plot "thickens". See, the story is one where the characters have to travel into another universe with their evil versions. So a basic mirror universe sto- oh god, now I get it. They use a mirror in that story as gateway and it is a mirror universe story. Damn.

Also, what the heck is the plot of EqG-2 going to be for petes sake, if the promotion clips are already dealing with all the material from the first trailer they released for it? Cause I seriously doubt that it may be what Dejablue suggest and they want to get the crown again, cause that thing was being reabsorbed in that crystal tree thing in the season 4 opener
