No, after the Oct. 13 two-parter it's officially at its end.

It's still a week too early to evaluate this season, but I'd point to six episodes -- "Fake It 'Til You Make It," "Horse Play," "The Parent Map," "Road to Friendship," "The Washouts," and "Sounds of Silence" -- as standing out above the others.

Raking It In Nother NonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36829199[View]

According to FilmLA, the official Los Angeles film office, My Little Pony: The Movie had a production budget of $6.5 million (https://www.filmla.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/2017_film_study_v3-WEB.pdf). This makes it almost the cheapest feature film made in whole or in part in California last year. This figure is also a LOT less than any estimates I've seen on any brony website. If this budget estimate is correct, then the movie was fantastically profitable, reaping almost a one thousand percent return on investment.

Can this be possible? What are the implications?

Meh, too little too late, they probably wanted this to overperform like Teen Titans GO to the Movies, and that gave out a budget much sooner. To some it looked like a flop, to many they didn't even know it existed. Really hard to call it a "hit" when we don't know things like P&A

I was going to say "best episode this season", but then I saw the kirin episode :p

loved this one, and found it great to see LD again. Really liked that they FINALLY stepped back a bit from the redemptions and let someone stay an antagonist while doing it somewhat realistically-- LD is still just kind of a self centered sociopath, she's not a sadist looking to cause problems she just doesn't CARE.

Plus damn, was that a nice touch when scoots blurts out to dash about not being able to be her because she can't fly. A really good admittance of her handicap.

Additionally, got a real chuckle out of Spitfire doing the van down by the river sketch (though I will admit to being confused for the first 10 seconds until I realized what she was doing XD



8.5/10.

EquestriaGuy!1DerpyVA.6Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36829176

Fuck Continuity: The Episode.

This is what happens when rando writers are brought on, and you don’t have a lore master like Jayson Theissen.

Scoots should know damn well who Lightning Dust is, and she and Twilight should presumably dislike her. Also, Flight to the Finish established that Dash doesn’t give a shit if Scoot can’t fly, nor does she expect her to.


At least watch relevant source material if you’re gonna write an episode.

Now iv read the ep synapses in the OP and im even more hype.

Trix - starlight is my fav character dynamic and friction between friends on long trips is an incredibly relatable subject for me.

Decent episode. Basically non-complete clause, but not as shitty.

If nothing else, I really like them fleshing out Rarity a bit more in her being a huge detective story fan (building off of rarity investigates).

Yes, but it was a magically prolonged Winter caused by the Windigoes. When they arrived in Equestria it was green and sunny. I know it was always snowy during the celebrations, but it would make a lot of sense to magically make it Winter for just a day to celebrate. Spike says they can easily do that after all.

If the Light Twins (Twi and Star) laid out the trail of clues for Raridash to follow, how did they know that Rarity would be able to unlock the Secret of the Breath Mints, or that she would have just the right stiletto heels to pick the lock on the door?

And why does a unicorn need an object to pick a lock? Can't she just move the little tumblers by telekinesis?

And -- stiletto heels on a horse? On boots? Covered in red glitter? Really? That borders on the obscene (pic). Rarity's choice of hoofwear seems strangely cheap, if not downright slutty.

>>36829102
The best explanation I've seen (as that is a really big issue) is "Flim and flam admitted blatantly plagiarizing Twilight's book", so she could possibly threaten them with a legal suit if they didn't return the money.

Honestly, I think a better fix would have been for her to allow them to keep teaching, but force them to lower their rates down to acceptable prices. Like you said, nothing inherently wrong with a for profit college if its done at a reasonable rate.

Not from what has been discussed publicly. The channel decided to do a series of weekly specials and Yakity-Sax wound up being the MLP FIM contribution for that slot on that Friday.

It wasn't part of a large story arc or one of the School of Friendship episodes, so it was a good slice of pone life story.
