What seems the saddest is that this business like attitude is industry wide. If it costs time or money, the studio isn't interested. Good will is pretty much dead.

Read this from Tom FUCKING Hanks on the scene in the recording studio the last day of recording Woody for the last Toy Story movie. Not even Tom Hanks gets a break when it comes to get-out-the-fucking-door-and-stop-costing-us-money! No party. No thank you. Just a check and hit the road.

>Hanks told Graham Norton his final recording sessions for Toy Story 4 were a little too businesslike by the producers. Tom asked the team if they needed any other recordings done before leaving. When they said no, he said he felt his lip quiver while driving home. It seemed like a large chunk of his life was heading into the sunset.

Closure OpinionatedCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36829959[View]

With the show coming to an end after just one more season, it's pretty much inevitable that many unanswered questions brought up by the series will remain by the finale. What are some such issues you most wish will be addressed by the final season? The fate of Chrysalis? Some resolution to Spike and Rarity? Celestia and Luna's origins?

Personally, I hope they have an episode that explains why Dash and Fluttershy moved to Ponyville. The few details we have seem like they could tell a great story, but it would be a shame if none of it went addressed.

It's extremely obvious the intial plan for starlight was axed sometime between the opening and the finale, her magical expertise shoots through the roof because the plot demanded a redemption spiel, her antagonistic motivation was very poorly thought out and that song montage fast-tracked her into being friends with the mane6.
It's to the point that her first appearance in the opener and her first appearance as a protagonist in the following season are practically two different characters.
Given their habit of recycling scripts, i personally think Sunset shimmer was going to come back to equestria and be Twilight's student, but they decided to use Glimmer for that instead.
>Sunburst as a brother instead of 'friend'
>Former student of celestia, magical ability is on par with Twilight for a credible reason.
>Biggest screw up was being a bitch and getting possessed by a magical artifact, so being forgiven and trusted so easily makes sense, not to mention more in common with Trixie in that regard.
I hope once G4 ends we get a dump of potential scripts or ideas, it'd be nice to know 'what-ifs'

Working horse breeds Nother NonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36830632[View]

From a story in the Sun (UK tabloid):

"The report examined 50 popular children's TV shows for their inclusivity, and the negative or positive nature of on-screen representation ... only nine per cent of material viewed showed working-class families, with mansions and palaces commonplace in children's TV.

"Despite its effort to represent LGBTQ+ the report said this lapse is "demonstrated in My Little Pony, where the unintelligent, 'working-class' goat characters are given strong Southern US accents"."

I find it hard to believe that the report's authors actually watched the show if they identified Big Mac and Applebloom as goats. But... is there anything to this? Which is more stupid and uncouth-- the working class in MLP, or the report's authors?

Princess Celestia had 1000 years... !gEapIYWEa2Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36822908[View]

The reason for the bitterness in Princess Luna's heart was because ponies slept through and shunned the night. Princess Celestia wrote the history book, so she knew this was true. She had the motive, and the opportunity, and all the time in the world. She didn't want to lose her sister again. To prevent that tragedy from happening, she needed there to be ponies who did not shun the night, and Princess Celestia had 1000 years to work with...

Princess Celestia created the bat ponies.

>>36830630

I didn't say they weren't a warlike race. I said Equestria is not a warlike nation. Obviously when Sombra starts conquering them, Equestria turned into a warlike nation real fast.

Anyway, since bat ponies are a thing that exists, whatever the circumstances of their creation, it wasn't a situation where it would be seen as an act of aggression by warring nations. I'm just saying that it seems much more compelling that Princess Celestia created them, which goes against most people's assumption that they were Luna's vampiric thralls or something. But that means Princess Celestia created them, making their history a lot sunnier, and her history a lot darker.

Or maybe they're just pegasi in bat costumes.

> What about the fierce battle in the streets of Canterlot between the Mane Six and the changelings under Chrysalis?


The one where the city got sacked and the main 6 got easily captured like little baby ponies who needed their bottle and blankie?

> If they had any smarts they would realize that the survival of all life on the planet depends on Celestia's raising the sun.


Teeechnically that head canon was denied in the Nightmare Takeover timeline, when Equestria was alive and well despite having been plunged into eternal night without a sun for many years, thanks to the grace and power of Nightmare Moon.

We don't know for how many years, or how much longer they could have kept it up. They may have been keeping the planet warm with dragons and feeding them fossil fuel (i.e., gemstones). When they run out of sapphires and rubies, the Big Freeze descends. The jury is out on this one.

File: 1562046603902.png (977.77 KB, 1830x586, manga888999.png)

So much wasted potential. Like, I LIKE the idea of celestia doing a normal mundane pony day (See the manga they released recently which was INCREDIBLE), and I ALSO want episodes about the six learning to run equestria if they're taking over.

The problem is that Celestia and luna just running around like this without everyone freaking out irks my S1 self where everyone threw themselves on the ground at the sight of them, and the Thing that the mane six are doing is just abusrd and a monty python government type joke.
This episode could MASSIVELY have been improved if luna and celestia had first disguised themselves as mortal ponies with a spell.

that being said, celestia and luna fighting was decent, the mane six were still enjoyable (I'M DELEGATING!" actually got a chuckle out of me), and overall it was still enjoyable.

So Cozy thinks she's cute and lovable. No, no Cozy wants to be cute and lovable. She actually wants to be that way. As opposed to wanting to be a spiteful, evil jerk, and only putting on a pretty face out of necessity. I would have thought when Tirek said he knew her true nature she'd just smirk evilly, glad for a chance to finally be proud of her dickishness. But instead, Cozy blew her top and denied it. If... someone could wave a magic wand and grant her wish, it certainly would be to rule Equestria, but if she had the choice to also stop getting so angry, and actually be cute and lovable, Cozy Glow would actually take that option?

It just seemed ...weird. Like >>36830382 said. Most villains are only nice because they have to be, to manipulate others. They don't usually want to be nice.

Working for so long on the same project must be rare in that industry.

I guess I can interrupt my Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers gameplay for 90 minutes. I expect this to be as godlike as the last special.

To be fair, I'd like a few more interconnected story episodes for S9. the only thing we got so far for the overarching plot of the mane six taking over for celestia and luna and Grogar's gang is Frenemies and between dark and dawn.

Doesn't Sweetie live with her parents though? I think on the occasions she's not staying at their house, she's staying at Rarity's.

One of my main problems with this episode and a lot of this season so far is the fact that the show seems to be shoehorning in as many new characters and concepts as possible, as well as breaking away from previously established, or at least assumed canon.

When I see episodes like this all I can think about is how many fan fictions have been destroyed, and how much this will affect future fan fictions, to the point where some might just not be written at all. Especially when a show like this is ending, sometimes not telling a story cam go a lot further than shoehorning one in, along with 4 new continuity breaking characters, you know just to add insult to injury.

This is likely the only time we’ll get to see Scootaloo’s parents, and in the short amount of time that we did see them they were extremely neglectful and showed absolutely no concern for Scootaloo, almost to the of abuse. Her aunts were a lot better, but they were only included to garner that last minute controversy and attention for the show, before everything was finally wrapped up. And as I said before, they’re “big reveal” was underwhelming to say the least. They were all forced in because the writers wanted an “edgy” and “controversial” excuse to end the CMC’s story arch, nothing else.

Introducing an interesting concept into the show doesn’t automatically make for a good episode, you actually have to build an interesting story around it.

From a plot perspective, I don’t really care, in fact I think it could make for a really interesting story, if it was done properly.
