What do DVD's have to do with comic books? Granted there was that one motion comic DVD Dee saw once but Dee doesn't think those things ever really caught on.

Ah~

There is so many things I could say about this episode, but when I think of it I don't think of anything that happened during it or when it was being broadcasted, I think of what happened after it and "because" of it...
That alone makes it a legendary episode, worth of being given a 10 out of 10, this post is for all the nice laughs you provided, my dear Mare-Do-Well!

Depends on the philosophy and faith but generally the soul is viewed as a reflection of the physical form. The same reason why when you enter a person's mind they take on a reflection of their lives.

This post is relevant to the 1 year anniversary of Power Ponies.

I'm pretty sure most bronies remember Flutterhulk. Everyone and their mother talked about this scene, sometimes at the expense of the rest of the episode; it was considered to be the defining moment of Power Ponies (and possibly even Season 4).

And yet, the quantity of fanart that features Flutterhulk comes up short. In Deviantart, one would only come up with several hundred results, and even then many of the searches are about Flutterhulk fanfiction that predate Power Ponies. Yes, one may search "Saddle Rager" instead and get 250-300 results, but many of the searches chiefly concern untransformed Flutterhulk.

According to polls like these, Flutterhulk doesn't do amazingly well in favorite Fluttershy Form polls. I once composed a poll based on the Roundstable poll with a voter turnout of 23 people; not a SINGLE soul voted for Flutterhulk.

http://www.roundstable.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4737&p=638852
http://mlpforums.com/topic/84173-favorite-fluttershy-transformation/

I am simply confused. Are Flutterhulk fans a vocal minority? Or perhaps Flutterhulk's popularity takes another form? Anything is possible.

I think its likely that concepts from the Hulk were incorporated into Saddle Rager's design. Was it likely the sole source, likely not, but the two share enough basic traits and it makes sense as a pop culture reference for the Hulk to be some form of starting point when it came to working on the idea of Saddle Rager.

Does anybody out there read Polish? There's this Polish priest, Slawomir Kostrzewa, who has been pounding his pulpit denouncing various kiddie-culture items as satanic, including Legos and MLP. I suspect it's just the usual (c)rap about occultism and magic, but I'd like to read the details concerning ponies - - and all the stories and articles I can find online about his anti-pony witch hunt are in Polish (except for a few in Chinese and Czech). I don't read these languages. If you do, please google <"slawomir kostrzewa" "my little pony" -lego> and report back. Anything interesting?

Oh oh, I did forget to mention.
In Flight to the Finish, while I didn't like the song or much at all about it, I was very pleasantly surprised when Bloom and Sweetie actually use the lyrics of that song in order to remind Scootaloo what's really important, which she'd forgotten.

"Got the moves, got the mojo, no harder working ponies around. We are a trio, work as a team; we'll be the first ponies out on the flag-waving scene"

That's actually some pretty great writing there just for that one scene. I do love it when an episode goes full circle, like Just for Sidekicks.

  As many of you I’m certain know, it was Pinkie Pie who was originally going to have wings instead of Fluttershy. But now imagine an episode where Pinkie Pie can’t help but wonder what it would be like to fly (like her Granny Pie could) and Fluttershy wishing that she didn’t have to fly:

They both decide to go to the old Castle library and find a spell that Twilight can cast upon them which will transfer Fluttershy’s wings to Pinkie (making certain it’s not too difficult for Twilight like the wing spell she casted on Rarity was). They find a simple spell and take it to Twilight, who after looking it over casts the spell and moves Fluttershy’s wings to Pinkie Pie. Airborne Pinkie and grounded Fluttershy are happy with their swapped lifestyles, for a while.

Eventually, Fluttershy begins to feel limited not being able to fly, and Pinkie also begins having minor troubles with being a Pegasus. Also midway through the episode, Pinkie Pie finds that she is unable to stand on clouds despite having wings, and Fluttershy finds (unable to get back down and now wishing she had her wings) that she can still stand on clouds despite not having wings. This leads Twilight to take another look at the spell she cast and finds that that it is only a simple “Body-Part-Swap” spell that only moves body parts from one being to another and does not fully change Earth Ponies into Pegasi and vice versa; Twilight openly remarks that she was thinking that the spell she cast seemed too simple.

At the end of the episode, Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie has Twilight reverse the spell, and they all learn that while it’s good to wonder what it would be like to be in one’s shoes, you should always be proud for who you are; and Pinkie adds that a if you’d like to fly, all you need is a good friend to give you a lift (we see Fluttershy lifting Pinkie into a tree).

So I saw the Rainbow Dash recap, where Rainbow gets an equal sign as her cutie mark, a sign that, yes, everyone but Twilight is going to be victimized and made useless, while Twilight becomes the fascist, alicorn supremacist savior of the universe like in Twilight's Kingdom.

I mean, every time we have a Twilight-centric opener, finale, or Equestria Girls special, Twilight becomes the only solution to everything on the level of Goku, while her friends technically become Yamcha, Krillin, and Piccolo all over again. And now, it's going to happen again in Season Five? Why can't the girls help Twilight for once, and prove once and for all that they aren't useless to her?

I don't think the review even had the same views as him. He posted it once saying how it made him rethink stuff like how violence was used and how characters are wasted compared to Goku, but the reviewer actually said things like how fights are dragged out with time that could've been replaced with character moments. And it's not even the fighting that's the problem, which he praised as great, so much as all the stalling DBZ is known to have in its fighting.

I realise you've been banned from /pony/ for the majority of the time this has been happening, but the guy made the exact same threads, using the exact same arguments, Twelve times.

This isn't an exaggeration, he literally did it twelve times, more if you count the number of times mods moved a thread of his to /keepittoonethread/ before it got going.

He was explicitly warned not to do it again, and he chose to ignore that warning, so he got banned from /pony/.
It wasnt a case of people disagreeing with him or anything else, it was the fact that he remade the thread on a constant basis and didnt add anything new to it.

If somebody made a thread about the first episode over a dozen times, you'd more than likely get sick of talking about it simply because you've run out of anything new to say.
Same thing happened here.

Locking this thread like i should have, apologies to /pony/, feel free to continue the dragonball discussion in /oat/.

Of course they could.

ponies are intelligent beings capable of interacting with human level technology with no problems, and have a host of skills that would be of benefit to humans in trade.



The only problem would be from Religious individuals and organizations who would be threatened by the existence of ponies being intelligent beings contradicting doctrines.

Humans have enough trouble getting along with other humans, I can't imagine how they would react to a whole other sentient race. Though I'm pretty sure a big factor would be how they would initially meet and the circumstances of said meeting. There is also the issue of how ponies would react and how they might behave differently based on how they see us. In general I don't think that would cause too many issues except for that of maybe religion, but religious conflicts are nothing new so it would just add another to the pile.

I'm sure we all like to defend the episodes we like and criticize the ones we don't, but let's flip things around a bit. Think of an episode you really enjoy, but that from a more objective standpoint wasn't really all that good. There's nothing wrong with enjoying something that has lots of problems, as long as you're aware of them and can look past them. Sometimes it seems like a lot of arguments here are people thinking that because they enjoyed something, it must be good and they have to deflect any criticism. Almost never do people say "Yeah it was definitely kinda dumb, but I love it anyway!" But I know for just about anyone there are examples of that, so maybe we can humanize ourselves a bit and give some healthy criticism to what we love.

Ok before anyone points it out, I did post this exact thread on /oat/ about a week back so many of you will have already seen it. If so, you can just post another episode that fits the bill, or even something other than an episode. Maybe problems you have with your favorite character, or season, or something like that.

So last time I explained why MMMMystery wasn't very good, and why I loved it anyway. This time I'll go with A Canterlot Wedding. Looking back, none of this really makes any sense. Every part of Chrysalis' plan really only works if for some reason she was extremely intent on actually marrying Shining, and also had no idea who Cadence even is. There are a million simple things she could have done to make her plan unassailable. And while the concept of changelings they give us is awesome, Chrysalis is the only one that actually acts like a changeling. Why would an army of shapeshifting body snatchers who depend on deception to feed just divebomb a city outright? Even the entire internal conflict, Twilight's disapproval about her brother's marriage, is solved and dispelled almost instantly upon meeting the real Cadence about halfway through the story.

AND YET, I just love the episodes. The conflict was intense, the mystery behind Cadence was pretty thrilling, the emotions ran high, This Day Aria OMG, and again the simple concept of ch
