Diana Moon Glampers Has anyone noticed that "The Cutie Map" is a ponification of Kurt Vonnegut's 1961 short story, “Harrison Bergeron,” greatly beloved of right-wing thinkers? In it, the U.S. is governed by a Handicapper General named Diana Moon Glampers, whose minions assign handicaps to everyone to ensure that nobody has any grounds for feeling themselves superior to anyone else. The beautiful person is obliged to wear an ugly wig and frumpy clothing, the brilliant person wears headphones that produce thought-preventing noise, the ballerina wears lead shoes, and so on.

"Starlight Glimmer" is an obvious play on "Diana Moon Glampers." No?

So Pony Life Is Kinda Nice? After having seen all 6 currently released episodes, I thought I’d stop in and give my opinion of Pony Life.

Right off the bat, let’s all agree nothing will EVER live up to FiM. Heck, even the later seasons of FiM couldn’t live up to the first few seasons. So it would be unfair to compare the 2, so I won’t. That being said, Pony Life itself can be a fairly cozy, fun, well done cartoon. Tabitha’s voice acting is still an absolute 11/10, and the writers have done Rarity great justice so far. Sure Pinkie is still spastic as fuck, but it’s a far more grounded and coherent show than I expected. And yes, the world of Equestria is basically gone, and all depth and meaning has been removed from absolutely everything except their personalities, but there’s still a good deal to enjoy, even if as a casual viewer.

My favorite episode so far, and the only one I’ve seen multiple times, is the one about Applejack’s hat, episode 3. If that episode were part of FiM and expanded to a full 22 minutes, it would have ranked up there as an all time favorite. So I’m glad Pony Life exists, if just because we get to see more of our girls.

Hayagriva From the Wikipedia article on the Lord Hayagriva, an avatar of Lord Vishnu:

"The Horse Avatar of Lord Vishnu is seen as pulling the sun up to the heavens every day, bringing light to darkness. Hayagriva's consort is Marichi, the goddess of the rising sun, more accurately the sun's light which is the life force of all things, and which is seen as the female aspect of Hayagriva. Marichi represents the essence of the power of creation of the cosmos. Whereas Hayagriva represents the other male aspect.

"In several other sources he is a white horse who pulls the sun into the sky every morning."

Hayagriva ("Horse-Neck") is "worshipped as the god of knowledge and wisdom, with a human body and a horse's head, brilliant white in color."

Sound familiar? You bet. Now -- did Lairen Faust know all this? Or is this a Jungian archetype of the collective unconscious? Or just a coincidence?

Making Up For Lost Time, Better Late Than Never Hey everypony, I haven’t been to this place in over a decade. I haven’t really been watching the show since season three around the time when the first Equestria Girls movie was released.

I recently out of boredom decided to tune into Discovery Family and I was surprised by how lost I was with the later episodes that I am thinking about getting back into the show as it’s still all available on Netflix.

I’m not sure if I should skip the episodes that I have seen which would be seasons 1-3 and skip straight to season 4 or if I should just binge watch the whole series since it likely has been some time that I don’t remember the first three seasons.

What do you all think?

Goodbye It's been a long ride. I got into the show around the middle of season 1, and I started visiting Ponychan during the hiatus between seasons 1 and 2. I feel like being here as really helped made be better at analyzing and discussing media, and it's surprising to think I even became a mod here.

However as time passed, things have been getting busier for me in real life. I've finished college and started working a job. I've found myself getting more busy and spending less time on here. I had stopped interacting and checking on the board as much as I used to, and probably not as often as a mod should. I even stopped making threads about the comic. However, I still stuck to trying to make sure the episode threads would go up, even if I wouldn't be around to watch the episodes live.

Now that the show has finally aired its last episode, I feel like it's time for me to finally step down and make it official that I'm retiring from moderating. I've seen many posters around here just drift away over time, but I'd like to at least say it out loud that I'm leaving. Might check on this site months or even years down the line, but otherwise, I'm done. Goodbye you guys. I thank you all for all the time I've spent around here, from the good times to the bad. With that, there's nothing left to say but...

Twilight is best pony.

Final Reflections I thought I should post some final thoughts, reflections, and comments before I close up shop for good and say goodbye to pony.

I came into the fandom 8 years ago today, October 13th 2011, at 4:01 AM EST. I’d always seen the pony stuff on /b/, but didn’t know it was a cartoon. I thought it was maybe someone’s artwork that people were making memes out of or something. Then by chance I found a pony related youtube video, which lead me to the KYM article, which lead me to Ponies: The Anthology, which lead me to watching all of season 1 and up through Luna Eclipsed 7 times each before I took a break from rewatching the series over and over like I was. I remember the exact moment I sold my soul over to the show, and knew that this was going to be my life and obsession for the foreseeable future. It was after I’d seen The Cutie Mark Chronicles, and stopped to read some articles about the show online. They said John De Lancie had just played Discord, which was basically Q. I grew up on TNG, TNG was my life back in the early 90s, so when I read that and saw my two loves had crossed over, that was it, man. This was my show from then on. I was driving home from work laughing hysterically because I knew this was it, and how absurd it was that I would fall in love with MLP and that it was such a damn good show that it would cross over with Trek.

The first few years I ran into a hell of a lot of drama in the fandom, a lot of it my own fault. When it comes to things I’m interested in, I’m either a 0 or a 100. With pony I was a 200, so I was always in arguments and getting banned out of here and TRS. I’m sad about those interactions, even the ones that weren’t my fault. I’m glad things settled down after that.

As for the show, I can honestly say I’ve never seen a show with as much heart, and as much effort into creating perfection, as MLP. DHX always knew how to make a show that simultaneously spoke to both adults and kids. Everything from the animation, to the music, the writing in the early seasons (and some of the late season individual episodes), everything exuded this perception that those behind the curtain truly understood these characters and knew how to bring them to life. They never felt like flash puppets. They ALWAYS felt alive. There was life in them. There was depth. But what stood out the most to me was the voice acting. Every line, every inflection was delivered with an absolute understanding of the character’s thoughts and feelings. Tabitha WAS Rarity when she was delivering her lines. Kelly Sheridan WAS Starlight Glimmer. There was so much emotion in the voice acting, which in turn helped the animators put that emotion in their art. You could identify and empathize with the characters because of the voice acting and because of the animation. The show has always been at the same time witty, funny, charming, comfy, and if I had to describe it to someone, I’d say it was a feeling of warmth and happiness, brought to life. It never spoke down to its target audience, it never condescended, and I always respected that.

I can never begin to express what this show has meant to me. What it helped get me through. What it’s STILL getting me through. The ways it brightened my life. Even as I sit here with tears I know this was a special experience that I would never trade for anything. I feel privileged to have been able to have kept an open mind enough to give the show a chance, and have found something with so much light and optimism, and happiness. It always felt pure and genuine in its messages, and that kind of sincerity is rare in the hyper cynical, low brow, low IQ, vapid, and vulgar society we live in today.

I don’t think I’ll watch Gen 5. It’s probably time to put this chapter behind me, and close that book just like the show did, but I’ll never forget this. I’ll never forget what it all meant to me, and part of that of course was always the community, even if there’s so few of us left, so thank you to all of you as well, and outside of any remaining posts I make in the finale thread, I’ll make this my farewell. So goodbye to you all, and thank you for 8 years, which is almost a quarter of my life. If I live 60 more years I hope I always feel as much love for MLP as I do right now. So thank you and farewell.

/pony/‘s Last Hurrah As we head into the final season, I think it’d be nice if everyone from throughout /pony/‘s history stopped by in the series finale thread to say hey for one last time, bid FiM farewell, and say what the show meant to them. I’m posting this now because I know how slow this board is, and I expect old faces will probably pop in at least once between now and then, and will hopefully see this.

I remember back in the golden era of FiM, our episode threads could get over a thousand posts. We were a pretty vibrant community, and while I don’t expect us to get near that again, it’d be great if our last episode thread was something to remember.

So whether you watch the show still or not, even if you got off after season 2 or 3, keep it in the back of your mind to post here in the series finale thread, which will most likely be some time around October.

MLP betreyal So I've noticed this since season 4 appeared. Im writing to express my feelings about "MLP Friendship is magic" series. Season 1-3 was a personal favorite of mine because I liked how you reversed the gender roles. You "added an ingredient" which I can only describe as a sense of superiority of the girl ponies: emotional, social status (spitfire), behavioral (RD, AJ) and more. I think the episodes in season 4 (and the following seasons) "changed directions" and gave the male ponies the upper hoof. It made me feel uncomfortable while watching. It disappointed me. It made me feel as if you were imposing the stereotype of whats male and female.
I doesnt feel like a "girlshow" anymore

1. How can Twilight do Celestia's job all day long and follow it up with an all-night shift policing the Kingdom of Dreams? Is somepony else picking up the slack?

2. When, and how, did Twilight acquire the long legs and the ever-flowing mane?

Wrap-up Looking back on a decade of Faust's ponies, I find myself thinking about what originally drew me into the fandom. In my case, it was watching the video of "Winter Wrap Up" -- just the song, excised from the episode (S1E11). I was enchanted, and I walked into Equestria and never came out. But I rarely encountered anything in the show later on that had the magical force of that first video.

What was, and is, so special about it? What was there in this one number that drew me in to a franchise that I had previously classed with Rainbow Bright and the Care Bears as a farrago of meretricious and cynical cuteness mobilized in the service of corporate greed? Here are some answers that have occurred to me.

1. The "Winter Wrap Up" number is quiet, modest, and serious. Apart from Twilight and Spike's getting buried in a fall of snow at one point, there are no sight gags. Nothing funny happens, and there is no laughter. On the other hand, nothing epic happens -- nothing magical, explosive, or portentous. The subject of the song is the absence of magic, which is forbidden to Twilight by local custom ("the earth pony way"). At first appearances, this is a work song.

2. And yet it is mythic and magical. It deals with the fundamental stuff of mythology: the cycle of years and lives, birth and death, the melting away of winter and the coming of spring -- Botticelli's "Primavera" redone with cartoon horses. It is both solemn and gay (in the original sense). It is also magical, because this is a world in which the sun and moon do not rise and set, and the seasons do not come and go, without the intervention of labor and intelligence. Unless the Houyhnhnms work together, the clouds will not part to let the sun's warmth and beauty in, the southern birds will not return, the snow will not go away, and winter will be eternal. Only laboring intelligence can shift the axis of the world. If Disney had animated this number, the birds, ferrets, and bunnies would have been running around chipping in, brushing away snow with their tails, and bringing ribbons to Rarity in their beaks. The MLP number presents us with a fantasy mode of interaction between culture and nature that is less obvious and harder to define.

3. The main (mane) characters are very delicately individualized. Pinkie does not bounce, shriek, and emit balloons and confetti; Rarity does not posture and preen; Rainbow Dash does not boast, compete, and whizz around like a mad beetle. There are hints of these things, but they are only hints. Although they do unexpected and individual things, we have the feeling that these archetypal characters have subordinated their individual peculiarities to the solemnities of a great common task.

4. There is no mugging. One of the most effective and peculiar things about this number is the high percentage of on-screen time during which the focal characters have their eyes closed, as though they were sleepwalking. This conveys a feeling of relaxed automatism — a practiced, age-old communal dance that excludes Twilight. View the video again and watch for it. RD, AJ, and Rarity all finish their initial lines in the spotlight with closed eyes. Rarity, Time Turner, and Fluttershy finish their holiday cheer on the first iteration of the refrain with their eyes shut. The three pegasi blow the clouds away with their eyes closed. And so on. By the end of the number, all the ponies' eyes are closed more often than not. The singers move half-entranced through the ritual pavane like dancers in a dream, contrasting with Twilight's generally wide-eyed anxiety. The pegasi hover over Twilight's final high note with closed eyes and withdraw with closed eyes. Twilight opens her own eyes briefly to look into the empty darkness, then closes her eyes and bows her head as we fade to blackness and silence. What a subtle and amazing effect! It gives surprising power to something as seemingly delicate as modesty. I wish they had reprised it in the sunset at the end of the final song on which the book closes along with the show.

5. The song is one of the best of all the show's songs. Like the best of them (there aren't that many), it has an unforgettable tune and returns again and again to a refrain with a little poetic force. Hearts, hearts strong as horses. Find you've got the music in you. For tomorrow Spring is here.

6. One final thing that deserves saying about this number: it is not only an articulation of the recurrent change of the seasons, but also an allegory of a child facing adult life. Twilight is the child here, looking with wide-eyed mystification at the easy-seeming dance of the grown-ups as they glide through the incomprehensible complexities of adult responsibility. She speaks to the bewildered child in all of us.

What grabbed me about "Winter Wrap Up" was the reverse of the tangy sassiness that increasingly characterized the show in its later seasons as its makers tried to address themselves more and more to what they thought their unexpectedly adult audience would like. It was its purity, seriousness, simplicity, and sincerity in dealing with matters of mythic scope and importance. As the show progressed through the years and the show-makers became more confident and practiced, their own initial wonder at the magical world they had stumbled into faded, and what had begun as art ended as entertainment. As they learned how to achieve effects, achieving effects gradually became the name of the game. There were flashes of the old magic until the very end, but a manipulative flavor gradually crept over the enterprise. A similar thing happened at the Disney studio between 1935 and 1945. After Bambi (1942), Disney and his artists stopped trying to do things they didn't know how to do, and contented themselves with the easier and more profitable undertaking of doing over and over the things they knew how to do very well.

G5 may recapture the initial wonderments of G4, but I doubt it. Such things happen only occasionally. I expect we're in for a few years of Filly Funtasia.

Closure 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.

Working horse breeds 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... 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.

Cozy Glow is Best Friend Cozy Glow's evil plan is to reform Tirek! She wants to take what she learned about friendship and share it with the worst of society, as a selfless act to make Equestria a better place. Sure she's deluded and probably egomaniacal when she thinks she can succeed where everypony else failed, but if she's trying to get in her pen pal's good graces just to show what a great friend she can be, that explains everything.

She'd commit some terrible crime like sucking all the magic out of Equestria, knowing it was complete lunacy to do so, knowing that she'd get caught and defeated. She'd pretend to be totally unrepentant, and completely unhinged, (and she's really good at pretending to be what she's not), so that ponies would lock her up and throw away the key. She lied when she said she wanted to be the empress of friendship, precisely so she could get locked up with Tirek. That's why she was so triumphant in her cage there. Her goal was never to conquer Equestria, but to become the best friend anypony could possibly be, and how better to do that than to befriend the one creature who has never been a friend to anybody? And now Tirek is at her mercy, and it's only a matter of time until he submits to her friendship. Until Grogar f-ed everything up. That's how Cozy really thinks friendship works, and that's exactly what she was trying to do. There's no other explanation for her actions!

Where are these episodes coming from? (non-spoilers i think) Quick question since I don't know where else to ask but how are some people even finding the early release epsiodes? I googled everywhere for Going to Seed before it aired today and the next two episodes but all I could find were 1 minute clips and people saying they've watched it (which I was too afraid to look into further in case of spoilers). So what are these folks' sources? And are they all in Italian?

The Nadir The comments on last week's episode have been criticized for being needlessly, over-dramatically harsh on an ep that was, at worst, uneven and average overall. Fair enough. What is the true bottom of the barrel, and why? What episode sticks out in your mind as the absolute worst so far? Was it defective in its concept, plotting, writing, graphics, music, acting, or what? Give us a base standard of comparison to temper our impatience with mediocrity in these Last Days.

Throughout the entirety of Season 8, how many of her actions were intended to be interpreted by the viewer as premeditated?

Does she ever make a genuine mistake or is it all an act? For example, benign "mistakes" like her knocking over the red paint in "Marks for Effort". Did the writers intend for this to be taken as something she did deliberately (perhaps as an innocuous way to grow closer with the CMC whilst remaining perceptually bumbling/helpless in their collective conscious)? Speaking of the CMC, what was the purpose in helping them gain access to the School of Friendship? It was ultimately through the CMC's intervention that Tirek's master plan was thwarted, yet I see little-to-no benefit for Cozy in this instance. Likewise, why point Twilight directly to the Friendship University if she was secretly supplying Flim & Flam with lessons to help the competition prosper? She was clearly in charge of the mail, so why not dispose of the flyers instead? Also, was it ever stated when exactly Cozy and Tirek began communicating with one another? How many of her actions were fueled by her innate aptitude for manipulation, and how many were simply following Tirek's instruction?

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, official nostalgia thread. The end of the line! Intro; This thread is mostly for S1/S2 Oldfags who want to reminisce about both the show and fandoms past, considering the recent announcement of the S9 being the last season, thus bringing G4 to an end. Anypony is welcome to join the discussion, even New fags, as long as you're respectful to some of the shows veterans.

In this thread we talk about/share our favourite episodes, movies, shorts, songs, animations, fan-fictions, fan-art, toys, etc, that are in any way related to G4. As well as talking about the impact G4 has had on our lives and/or the lives of those around us. I'm going to make regular updates to this thread, and I suggest that everypony else do the same.

End of the line celebrations; I'm personally planning to go back to season one, so I can watch every episode from the show in order, again. (I plan to make thread updates about this as I go along.) I suggest you do the same, but don't rush it. Remember this is about reappreciating, the more thine you take the better.

Q&A; What are you guys doing to celebrate the end of the show? (As I said rewatching the show. But I'll also go back and look at some of the old fan content.)

Do you plan to stay the fandom once the show ends? If so, how long do you plan on staying here? (Definitely! I'll probably stay here for a good few years to come, at least.)

When did you join the fandom? (Early to mid season 2/early 2012.)

Do you still watch the show? (Yes, but nowhere near as much as I used to.)

What is your favourite episode/season? (There are too many good episodes and seasons for me to answer this question.)

Who are your favourite ponies? (Lyra, Twilight, and Luna.)

Ask your questions, along with any answers you give.

Do transformed changelings (the ones with antlers) have different sex-determination mechanisms?

Does anyone else's favorite character change depending on the season of the show? Whenever someone asks for my favorite pony, I genuinely struggle to give a concise answer.

If I say "Pinkie Pie" people assume I also like the screechy, flanderized vexation of the spirit she devolved into. Sweetie Belle is still fairly enjoyable, but not anywhere near as much as her appearances in seasons 2~4; I might even go as far as to say she has become a teensy bit bland in recent seasons. I had a brief honeymoon phase with Twilight after she attained God-hood due to her overall shift to more quirky/ awkward yet still endearing personality traits. But even then, that aspect was soon eclipsed by the newly reformed Starlight. With only one season left to go, I think it's safe to say that neither Cozy Glow nor Ocellus will overtake Glim-glim completely, meaning that the latter will likely remain in my #1 spot for the longest duration out of any character to date. But thinking back to how utterly obsessed I was with Pinkie back when I first discovered the show in 2011, or my budding adoration for Sweetie Belle for what seemed like an eternity, it is hard to compare that level of affection to what I feel for Starlight currently. Sure, she's by far the most consistently enjoyable character to watch post-S5 and I look forward to pretty much any screen-time she gets... but I suppose I just don't feel the same level of "passion" for her as I did for PP & SB back in the early days.

For the sake of reference, I am not one of those people who thinks FiM has been getting worse and worse as time goes on. Personally, my ranking of the seasons would be something like this:
5>4>6>7=8>3=1>2. So, my lack of enthusiasm for Starlight Glimmer clearly isn't a result of poor seasonal quality, at least not from my perspective.

So the starswirl do over book (Discussion) What's everyone's thoughts on it that have read it? (can read it on 4chan http://boards.4channel.org/mlp/thread/33476643#p33476643 for now).

Honestly, was rather impressed; its alot more entertaining than I was expecting with the last couple of books, though given that this one looks to be an upcoming special, that's to be expected.

that being said, had to Reeeee at The dazzlings seemingly being reformed and giving sunset friendly advice on friendship to fix her problems. Fuck that shit

Twilight Sparkle is a Mary Sue? I like Twilight Sparkle, and don't really see how she can be a Mary Sue. Protagonist, sure, but the only episode where she seemed really "Sueish" was Magical Mystery Cure. Otherwise, she isn't a blatant self insert of either the writers or Tara Strong. Heck she isn't anywhere remotely like Tara. She isn't considered beautiful, but more importantly she isn't considered *remarkable* in appearance, at most she's described as a little scrawny. She has an ordinary eye color (for a pony) and she's a terrible dancer.

I'm just reading through this and trying to figure out where people would think of her like a Mary Sue: http://katfeete.net/writing/sue.php

Princess Mi Amore Cadenza is off the charts, but Twilight barely registers. Even Applejack gets a higher score, what with the dead parents, and the freckles, and winning an award for being the most well liked pony in all of Ponyville.

There aren't any prophecies about Twilight, specifically. There are ones about the main 6, but the prophecy stuff cuts off pretty much once Twi gets princess'd. I mean, I guess she's royalty now, but she was born to just ordinary parents, who weren't abusive or anything. She's also taking a more passive, supportive role in the background as a princess, and going absolutely nuts for not being able to participate in any of the adventure.

Not everybody likes Twilight. Heck, Sparkler hates her guts for one-upping her organizational skills. Twilight even aggravates her friends at times, though less so as a pretty princess. She doesn't rage against the machine, and is pretty content with the way the world is.

Any character can be portrayed as a Mary Sue, but for all Twilight is ridiculously overpowered at times, I just don't see her fitting in that role most of the time.

How must the show end at the end of its final season?

1. It should end with epic, mythological force.

2. It should be more adult than the previous end-of-season episodes. Okay, the ending has to be happy or at least glorious. But there should be an element of sorrow in it. A flavor of tragedy and loss. Something sad and final should happen that isn't resolved in a group hug and a shower of candy and rainbows.

3. It shouldn't just be another triumph over one more dark-colored baddie with glowing eyes, an evil laugh, and a nimbus of black writhing bits like Nightmare Moon, Sombra, or the Pony of Shadows. Not just another laser battle where horns or jewels or mystic rocks, scrolls, or trees shoot out beams that push each other back and forth. We need something darker and more powerful than that -- an adversary dark and powerful enough to lift the show's ending to a legendary level. An adversary of a kind that we haven't seen or imagined before in connection with My Little Pony. An adversary that leads us into a moral that makes even the adult audience pause and think.

4. It should be at least an hour long: maybe two hours.

I'm not sure how to do this, but one thought that occurs to me is to make the adversary Death. We've seen death and its results in earlier episodes, but the word itself has never been used. Let it be used. Let a personified (or ponified) Death take some central and beloved character. How about one of the Two Sisters? We've seen Celestia seem to die twice, only to recover and triumph in the end. But what if she did not? With the myth of Orpheus in mind, imagine a denouement in which Death falls in love with (say) Luna and takes her to be his bride, and other characters struggle to reclaim her from the Equestrian Underworld. Ultimately, they fail, because they should and must fail. The age ends, the old gods pass away, and a new age begins as the curtain falls. Let that, or something like it, be the last moral of the show.

Too grim? Too grown-up? Let's hear some better ideas. But kids love stories about Death. Consider Coco, The Book of Life, The Corpse Bride, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Frankenweenie, Paranorman. And the proposition that old life must die if new life is to be born is a good strong aesop for the ending of the cycle.

The Good Stuff I just went back and rewatched "The Return of Harmony, Part 2." As the iris-out closed on the Star Wars ending, I realized that I was grinning like a bear trap from ear to ear.

It was wonderful. Snappy, funny, touching, acid, clever. Pickles and icing in just the right proportions. Clever dialogue, marvelous VA and faces, delicious animation (especially RD); avoiding the pitfalls of vapid sentimentality and vacuous irony with skill, care, restraint, and a manifest love for the characters and the world. I had forgotten how good this show was at its best.

Check it out. Watch it again. Do you agree? If you do-- what do you think the secret was -- or is, or might be?

Top 10 Songs of G4 I haven't made a thread in years because this place is downright moribund, and there's really not much else to say. Imagine being locked in a room with someone for 7 years, you really wouldn't have much to talk about after the first few years.

So here's one of a few threads I'll make, just because I'm bored and want to see where everyone ( all 5 of us) are at. Yes this includes EQG

1) Hope Shines Eternal
2) Welcome to the Show
3) Shine Like Rainbows
4) Pinkie's Present

6) Apples to the Core

Waning Lulamoon In S1's "Boast Busters," Trixie is a moderately powerful unicorn with real magic. Oh, the Ursa Major thing is all hype, and she uses a lot of smoke bombs and fireworks, but she has enough unicorn power over ropes, rainbows, lightning, and hair to do real magical dirt to Applejack, Rainbow Dash, and Rarity. When she gets hold of the Alicorn Amulet, her natural powers are amplified to the verge of omnipotence. But by the time we get down to the latest season, she has become as big a humbug as the Wizard of Oz.
