Personally, Think it may have something to do with the CMC possibly getting their cutie marks; if the CMC get their cutie marks, it would leave babs out in the cold a bit and might seem forced if she only got hers AFTER the other three got theirs.

By giving her her cutie mark now, it kind of clears the air.

Yeah, pretty much :/

Not the best episode out there; the moral was pretty shitty (the cycle of bullying idea is stupid and has been largely debunked), and overall just wasn't that enjoyable.

Season vs. Season 2 (Episode 15) XylonLionheart!l7.O6DCdPw 36802999[View]

How appropriate for a mid-season break, though really it shows off how this feels like Season 5 being split into two half seasons like Season 3. This is the last time Season 3 will be compared against other episodes until the finale. So, here's what we have this week.

Season 1: Fall Weather Friends
Season 2: Baby Cakes
Season 3: Magical Mystery Cure
Season 4: Simple Ways
Season 5: Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?

I feel like I'm having trouble deciding on the order again. At the same time, I feel like I might be in the minority on what I go with here. At least I know what my bottom two are. Let's... go with my gut here, I guess.

Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep? > Magical Mystery Cure > Fall Weather Friends > Simple Ways > Baby Cakes

I still like Amending Fences better overall as a story, but I still really enjoyed this week's episode. Yes, I'm a bit of a Luna fanboy, so that probably helped this episode in my eyes, but I was also quite amused by the dream sequences, especially the shared one near the end. The dialogue was a bit repetitive and Luna trying to fight the Tantabus alone at the beginning just seemed cliche at this point, but I really missed these sort of high action stories, and for it to also feature Luna? This was her best appearance since Luna Eclipsed. (Though that, again, was still superior.)

Magical Mystery Cure only gets second here because even though it had some great highs, you had to get through that mess of a first half first. The pacing was just... too quick at the start, and it really needed to be a two-parter to get the most out of the story. Even then... does anybody else think that this was a weak story to lead in to Twilight's Ascension? I really do feel that there could have been something more... grand to lead to her ultimate epiphany. That said, there were still some great moments that really capped off the series thus far.

>On that note, anyone find it odd that Dash's favorite dream isn't about being the best wonderbolt, but rather being on an adventure?
>I kind of like to say its character development in how she's come to idolize things like daring do almost more than the wonderbolts, though I could see how some people might think it was out of character to not be dreaming about being the best wonderbolt ever or whatnot.
I just think that joining the Wonderbolts is more of a goal kind of dream, and for a sort of stream of consciousness dream, having an exciting fight against changelings would be something she'd like. I mean it's not like Rarity having a dream of dancing dresses or Applejack growing a giant apple means that in the real world they would desire having those more than their businesses succeeding.

Crimson Risk !RISkQqf4EM 36803764

>On that note, anyone find it odd that Dash's favorite dream isn't about being the best wonderbolt, but rather being on an adventure?
The writers probably feel like the Wonderbolts thing is played out, now that she's met them personally, been in their academy, etc.

Unlikeable pony 36803860

Well yes, but that's still her big dream arc that they've never wrapped up :p

Until its concluded its still a part of her.
(Though, to be honest, I'd kind of like her to end up deciding she'd rather be an adventurer like Daring do instead of a wonderbolt and that she idolized them as heroes instead of as stunt fliers)

Yeah, especially since when you're pitching a project, most of the time, especially for people trying to get started in the business, you don't have a lot of their time to do your pitch. The people you're pitching too aren't going to spend the time needed to appreciate a story that shows off how good the writing could be, but art is something that can leave an impact and be conveyed quickly. Once you've gotten the green light is when a writer can show their stuff.

On that note, that's why I think the artist is so important to each issues success; even if the plot's bad, I can still draw significant enjoyment from a comic simply from the art-- For example, despite not accomplishing much, I STILL like to go back and look over and reread Tirek's comic simply for the sharply done art.

Names of Books ConnorTheBrony 36803301[View]

In the season 1 premier episodes these two books are given specific names, but as I remember the brown storybook with the unicorn head that gives exposition in the very first scene is never given a specific name.

However, in the second season premier they find the Elements hidden in "the reference guide to the Elements of Harmony" which has the same cover as the nameless book Twilight was reading in the beginning.

The book Twilight was originally reading wasn't really a reference guide to the Elements, it seemed more like a fanciful history book. The reason she looked deeper into the story of the Mare in the Moon was because she was trying to find a deeper explanation for what the Elements were after the storybook reminded her that she had heard of them before.

Should the Reference Guide and "the storybook" be considered the same book or different books? Do you think this was just a case of creator oversight and/or reusing the best looking asset?

I'm asking because I have a few fics I'm writing which depend on the specific books and I wanted to see some others' opinions.

I stopped watching after season 3 ended. It looked like the show was just going completely downhill after that catastrophe of a season finale. I watched a few episodes of season 4, but I never finished the whole season and I'm seeing that season 5 is happening right now.

Is the show still any good? I mean obviously, you guys still watch it and enjoy it, but to someone whos enjoyment died at the season 3 finale, is it worth enduring season 4 and catching up to today? Because truth be told, I miss the pony anthologies, and I miss understanding the references that saberspark makes, and I miss the fandom in general. Oh, yeah, you guys are pretty cool, too, I guess.

Of that era? I think Johnny Bravo was the only cartoon I remember finding entertaining at the time. My gf back then was big on PPG and Dexter's Lab, so I got plenty of exposure to both whether I wanted to or not, and never got into either. I didn't find Foster's until I started digging around for new stuff to watch a few years back. Watched it and Chowder concurrently until I lost interest in Foster's a few episodes in, enjoyed Chowder to the last episode.

Looney Toons was probably my favorite when I was growing up, so I took to Tiny Toons and Animaniacs pretty readily when they came out. Other than those? Hmm. Bullwinkle, Superfriends, Underdog, Groovy Ghoulies, Mighty Hercules, Catillac Cats, and Inspector Gadget are others I can think of offhand that I enjoyed at various times. Probably more I'm forgetting. Oh, He-Man was cheesy fun too.

Season five has been the BEST season this far! There's been only one episode I didn't like that much, and several that were more awesome than I believed would be possible!

Most of the people complaining about things going downhill are the same people who have done that since season 1 or 2, sometimes even saying that the show should end while it's still good. That's a sick way to look at things, as in psychologically sick in a way that cognitive constructivism has a diagnosis for. They are so afraid of being disappointed by something they love that they'd rather have it end than live in fear of being let down!

In case you're sad, that is the reason you can't have nice things.

P.S. Welcome to those who have joined us after the merger. A quick explanation of this thread is that we re-visit the episodes in order and discuss them at length hopefully without too much derailing. This thread runs during any long show down time, typically between seasons but like I said long hiatus, so we got plenty of time.
