It may rhyme well but it sounded rather bumpy. It's better read than sung.

Anyway, after rewatching I found it to be a pretty uneventful episode.

That railway track to Mt. Aeris was built pretty quickly though. And as generally Equestria seems to rely on single-tracks I want to see a passing loop at some point.

I really loved that skystar's goofyness comes thru in silverstreak, that we are introducing a whole new friend group instead of rehashing the 6 or the cmcs, and that theres still more pony ahead.

The show is rejuvenated, Twiggles is fresh and mature, and if she can escape the neurotic meltdowns of early seasons, then there's hope a nutwack like me could someday gain some emotional stability too. a very small, fleeting hope, but

I was touched, as I always am, by the gimmick where the old lady pulls back the loose skin on her face and reveals the ghost of the young girl still hiding inside. And I thought the business involving the oral transfer of the tip to the bellhop was charmingly disturbing. The intermittent throb of repressed old-woman sexuality under this made it a more grownup episode than usual.

“Anybody can look at a pretty girl and see a pretty girl. An artist can look at a pretty girl and see the old woman she will become. A better artist can look at an old woman and see the pretty girl that she used to be. But a great artist-a master-and that is what Auguste Rodin was-can look at an old woman, protray her exactly as she is...and force the viewer to see the pretty girl she used to be...and more than that, he can make anyone with the sensitivity of an armadillo, or even you, see that this lovely young girl is still alive, not old and ugly at all, but simply prisoned inside her ruined body. He can make you feel the quiet, endless tragedy that there was never a girl born who ever grew older than eighteen in her heart...no matter what the merciless hours have done to her. Look at her, Ben. Growing old doesn't matter to you and me; we were never meant to be admired-but it does to them.”

That's a good, relevant, moving quote. But the end of it is the sort of eloquent and persuasive bullshit that Heinlein was so adept at slinging. This is the voice of a 54-year-old man telling himself that growing old doesn't matter to us guys -- because men "were never meant to be admired." Meant? By whom? God? Natural selection?

If we're talking about evolution, the truth is just the reverse. In most species, the males (the ones with the innumerable, tiny, cheap gametes) sing, dance, display, and strut their stuff in hopes of being admired and chosen by the drab, non-singing females (the ones with the few, big, valuable gametes). Both human sexes display, because the males help feed the babies. But -- males never meant to be admired? Horse apples (to quote Rainbow Dash). If men were indifferent to getting old and un-pretty, President Trump wouldn't be combing his ear hairs over the top of his head and dyeing them yellow.

Incidentally, the first time I ever saw that youth-restoring gimmick, the skin that was being pulled back was on the face of a man -- Robin Williams in Hook: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6s8ZEFUSYAI)

This really should have ended with a scream-yourself-awake nightmare, either Fluttershy's or Rarity's (though it's hard to say whose for sure). In turn, after said character sighs in relief "Well luckily it was all a dream" there's a pan to a room full of cameo raccoon servants which leads us to a shot of Spike waking up from a work-induced fever of his own.

So in fact the whole time the subject of the episode has been that Spike has been working a lot of Saturdays recently, rather than another bizarre Fluttershy-confidence entry for the pile.

On LOM: Good series, but damned, did that last one try and shaft literally EVERYTHING onto Starswirl as his fault.

its even worse in that it fails the "Show don't tell" rule for that, as starswirl, as shown in the comic, is FAR nicer and friendly than his show counterpart, with the only real indication of him being in the wrong being the text blaming him and implying his plan of banishing the sirens was "Wrong" compared to stygian's "Lets just talk to them!" plan.

having a plot where she has to relearn the same lesson she learned back in putting your hoof down means she's basically not actually progressing as a character and just retreading the same lessons over and over instead of developing (which is a common complaint about her-- see her segment in fame and misfortune with the pony's complaining at her)

You don't just learn a lesson and change. You have to repeat it over and over until it finally sticks or you'll just fall back into your old ways eventually.

When The hub became DFC, they were joyless, stuffy librarians. They’ve gotten infinitely better since then. Sure this isn’t on the Equestria Girls song parody level, but at least it’s decent.

Hah, Dash makes a surprisingly good stand in for Zach.

Too bad none of the target audience will understand ANY of that; saved by the bell didn't have quite the pop culture impact that fresh prince did, sadly, so knowledge of it has faded alot more amongst the new generation >.<
(And sadly the brony fandom is at an all time low for people to enjoy it :(


I really liked the part with her coasting on the back of celestia's chariot.

Bad hombres Nother Nonymous 36828284[View]

From an article by Jennifer Burton et al. in yes! magazine online:

'Stereotypes persist in both how characters are drawn and how they talk, with "bad guys” using non-American accents and dialects. We see this in characters like Dr. Doofenshmirtz from Phineas and Ferb or Nightmare Moon on My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.'

Does anyone out there have any insight into what these people are talking about?

That embedded compilation was an eye-opener (or ear-opener). The Nightmare Moon voice -- and by extension, the "generic evil queen" voice -- reduces to "ham actor." The dialect is basically US, with exaggerated enunciation and a thin overlay of Received Standard British (e.g., dropping terminal R's)-- a stagy version of the slightly affected "Atlantic" dialect that Rarity speaks. Every so often NM forgets to ham it up, and a bit of upper-class New York dialect comes through ("You're kidding, right?") The Mane-iac has a similar dialect.

The lesson from all this: evil speaks with the voice of a bad actor from New York. Hardly the "non-American stereotype" criticized in the quote from the OP.

Reviewing the clips in that compilation was an eye-opener in another way: that first episode was good. I had forgotten how good it was.

Only the Daring Do villains stuck me as non-natives.

Retrospectives Nother Nonymous 36828197[View]

On a whim, I went back this evening and re-watched "Power Ponies" (S4E06). I loved it. I grinned all the way through and laughed out loud in a couple of places. The beauty-salon-of-doom motif was a nice subversion of the whole macho superhero shtick, the Mane-iac was properly over the top, and the powered-up personas of Dash, Fluttershy, Rarity, and Pinkie Pie were dead-on developments of their individual characters.

If you have a neglected past episode that would be worth revisiting to remind us of the glories of G4, tell us about it!

>where she flubbed spells constantly and wasn't THAT strong.
There was only a few instances where I can recall her messing up with a spell somehow during that time. SotC, WWU, and LZ. I think in those instances, it was more about using her magic to escalate things or just not solve things in that instance, rather than it being a recurring character trait that she messes up spells. Plus the very next episode after PP, Bats, has Twilight mess up and do a spell wrong which escalates the problem. If they don't want Twilight to solve things, they still just have her not be able to solve things, like fixing Rarity's hair or getting honey from those bees simply just can't be fixed with magic.

Might actually be because more recently Starlight is around now and is often impulsive that they can just use her to cause magical mishaps that create problems or make things worse instead of Twilight accidentally messing up something.

I think there's legitimate evidence that she was magically less powerful in early seasons--

Teleporting in Season 1 seemed like it was majorly difficult for her (Look at how much concentration she had to teleport when dealing with the hydra) and she only did it sparingly and not back to back;
Now she can teleport around the entire nation rapidfire without breaking a sweat.
Plus she was constantly training in new spells (like the apples to oranges spell) since she wasn't that magically studied back then.

I don't think the magical mishaps had to do with power so much as just getting the spell and its effects wrong when trying to cast. The best way I would summarize it would be the problems stemmed from incompetence, not impotence.
