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.

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.

Raking It In 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?

Old AliTwi Idea Hey everyone, been a long time, huh? I was digging around my old stuff and found a concept I remember putting a lot of effort into. Not sure how many people here still watch the show, but this was back during the season 3 hiatus when I wanted to show all the doomsayers that it was possible (if highly unlikely) that the show could do well after the whole Princess Twilight fiasco. It's just a sort of... hypothetical look into where I think things could have gone. It's a little long, but not a fic or anything. I'm kinda just looking for feedback, whatever it might be.

<Welp, the body was too long for a post, so here's a link to a google doc instead.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1iqrJ_hddNAHFkr0LLFL8EYbQAT58SsvqmMPCfp9HqGo/edit?usp=sharing

Target demographic When this show started out, the ages of the Mane Six were a topic for debate. The last time we had the don't-treat-me-like-a-baby motif, the protestor was -- what? maybe nine or ten? But in Saturday's episode, one of our viewpoint characters has a beard (which his mother tries to cut off, sigmundfreud cough cough) and the other one yells, "I'm a grown mare!" Starlight's old room (pic) is a zoo of rebellious-teenager paraphernalia: male alicorn plushie with smouldering eyes, leering leather-clad stallion on poster, skulls everywhere, some with demon horns.

The target demographic for this show is no longer 6-8-year-old girls. Proof: almost all the show's commercials are now for adult stuff, of no interest to young girls.

Spinoff Town With Spinoff Ponies I've been thinking about a show that would uphold the ideals of FiM, without using any of Hasbro's intellectual properties. The main goal in planning this "bible" is to come up with a cast and setting that have the most potential for FiM-style episodes.

The basic premise is that the show takes place on a new continent far away from the mainland Equestria, referred to only as the "mainland" or "maneland" in the show. The main location would be a small town (name needed) that was originally a logging camp but has since grown to about the size of Ponyville. The town is near a forest of giant trees, and many of the older buildings are built from their trunks or even inside trees similar to Twilight's old library. As ponies avoid exploiting nature, the logging has slowed down since the early years and the vast, mostly unexplored forest is still full of mysteries.

The working title for this show is "Settlers of Horseria", but as always, suggestions and discussion are welcome.

Along the way they learn that heroes come in all shapes and sizes and that there really is no force stronger than the Magic of Friendship.

Bad hombres 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?

Retrospectives 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!

Supination This is a trivial point, but it bothers me. IRL horses can't supinate their forearms -- that is, they can't rotate the sole of their hoof so it faces upward. (Most mammals, apart from apes and humans, can't either.) But Equestrian ponies can. They're shown all the time on the show in palm-up postures. But how do they do this? You practically never see an intermediate position. One frame the sole faces downward; in the next frame, it faces upward. I suspect that the animators just change the shape of the end of the foreleg for most ponies. But this won't work for the ones that are wearing shoes -- i.e., Luna and Celestia, with their gold and silver sandals. Does the sole of the sandal rotate toward the midline? I don't think I've ever seen it in that position. There seems to be an intermediate position in some shots, but I don't have the necessary software to look at individual frames.

Sometimes you will see a pony pressing one or both soles to her face in a half-supinated position (pic), so there must be rotation. But I can't recall ever seeing the bottom of one of the princesses' sandals. Do the shoes magically change shape as they go from pronated to supinated? Can someone do a frame-by-frame check and report back?

Postscript: you CAN see the bottom of a princess's shoes in some shots -- e.g. s6e25 at 3:22. But they're fully supinated already. The animators seem to be avoiding the in-betweens.

MLP has been weak since S1 I haven't watched the show in a while (didn't make it past season 5), and I hear a lot of people complaining about the direction/writing of the new seasons compared to season 1.
But then I started thinking on it, and realized there is not a single memorable episode, or character, or quote in the entire show.

On a personal level, I started watching S1 because the ponies were cute, and I found out it was an OK cartoon and not just a soulless cash grab like the Barbie movies. That said, the show was still pretty weak.
I don't remember S1 making me laugh (beyond a chuckle), the characters were pretty uni-dimensional when they were first introduced and they remained weak to the end despite the little development they got. The whole Nightmare Moon thing made me cringe actually, episodes like the Buffalo or the Owl one are also pretty shit, and S1 has one of the most hated episodes in the entire series, to the point were Lauren Faust had to apologize.

The next seasons are the same too, they got funnier sometimes, but they never did anything that would endure beyond the show. When you get down to it, the show is pretty forgettable: you can't quote it like Spongebob, and speaking of that, it never reached Spongebob in writing quality (or other shows), not even when it was at its peak.

So in resume, I watched it for the cute pony butts and deceived myself into believing it was something more than a mediocre cartoon.

CMC mystery books thread So I thought I'd make a thread on the CMC mystery books in case anyone here has read these; I know the board's basically dead, but I thought I'd give i a try anyways :p

Honestly, I find it kind of funny-- the Mane six books as of late have all been super low key slice of life crap with the two parters besides shadow play either having them as cameos or not dealing with them at all in stopping threats, while these Books have the CMC dealing with an overarching plot of Apocalyptic dark magic and real actual stuff of importance that each one does in each book to stop the problem. Plus them apparently being prophecied individuals to stop a massive threat to the world and being personally guided by Luna and Celestia is kind of big.
Compared to the mane six the CMC almost seem to be putting them to shame here in being heroes

Rewriting History So, it's no secret that there are plenty of episodes that some would consider "the worst episode" or some variation of that title. Now if you don't have a worst episode choice, try and pick one out. Because the question i have for you /pony/, is that if you were given the power to re-write any of the mlp episodes, which one would it be? What kind of changes would you make to improve it?

I've always loved reading your guy's reviews of when new episodes come out, so I'm genuinely curious about this.

Other Zebras? So, we've all been watching MLP for many seasons now, but there's one character I think needs some more background info: Zecora.
Maybe I haven't seen enough episodes with her in them, but with all the ones she's ever been in, even in her first appearance in the series, I still wonder: where did Zecora come from? And if zebras do exist in Equestria, then where are the other zebras? Or is Zecora the only one? Because in almost every episode I've seen with her in it, that information is never really brought up.

Princess of Phonology According to EQD, the new Chinese dub of FiM uses the following names for the mane characters:

•Twilight Sparkle - 紫悦 (Zi Yue) - PURPLE DELIGHT
•Rarity - 珍奇 (Zhen Qi) - RARE
•Rainbow Dash - 云宝 (Yun Bao) - CLOUD TREASURE
•Fluttershy - 柔柔 (Rou Rou) - SOFTLY
•Applejack - 苹果嘉儿 (Ping Guo Jiar Er) - APPLE FINE CHILD
•Pinkie Pie - 碧琪 (Pi Qi) - PEACH
•Princess Celestia - 宇宙公主 (Yu Zhou Gong Zhu) - SPACE PRINCESS
•Princess Luna - 月亮公主 (Yue Liang Gong Zhu) - MOON PRINCESS
•Princess Cadance - 音韵公主 (Yin Yun Gong Zhu) - PHONOLOGY PRINCESS
•Queen Chrysalis - 幻形女王 (Huan Xing Nu Wang) - MAGIC SHAPE QUEEN
•Starlight Glimmer - 星光烁烁 (Xing Guang Shuo Shuo) - TWINKLY
•Sunset Shimmer - 落日霞光 (Luo Ri Xia Guang) - SUNSET GLOW

"Pi Qi" is ingenious, and "Softly" and "Magic Shape Queen" aren't bad. "Jiar Er" sounds like a least-worst Mandarin attempt at "Jack," and maybe they couldn't use "Celestial Princess" because it's the name of a god or an official title under the last Imperial dynasty or something. But "Phonology Princess?" Sweet Celestia's underpants!

I've seen clips from Mandarin dubs online for some time. Are those prior dubs for the Taiwan market? If so, does anyone know how they translated the names?

P.S.: Feeding "Pi Qi" through Google Translate yields "jade-colored jade," not "peach." Not the right color, guys. And "Luo Ri Xia Guang" means "Snowfall Haze," not "Sunset Glow." I haven't checked out the rest.

Grand-daddy Villain? If there's one thing I love about the MLP series, is its cast of villains. Because there have been so many already, we can compare them to one another to see which is superior overall, more powerful, or more likable. Thus far, however, while the villains all have their own unique style and power, I think many people in Ponychan can agree there is one villain that is definitely OP: Discord. With the exception of Tirek tricking him or the Changlings stripping his abilities, Discord could beat virtually anyone or anything with the snap of a finger. Ever since he first came into the spotlight as a deity of chaos, he has been guaranteed the ability to do whatever he pleases, with power that we may not even be able to measure.
So the question comes to shove: can there ever be a villain that an equal Discord's abilities (without a plot tool to disable Discord) or, and even grander question: be the grand-daddy of all MLP villains that can even bring Discord to his knees?

Now, I personally love crafting MLP villains on my own, and as I've developed thus far, I have Havok: spirit of destruction, who Discord could only contain but never defeat or eliminate, and Hailstone, who may be magical as a villain, but not have the same force a deity may have.

My ultimate goal to is craft a villain who would be able to blow canon villains like Discord or fan-made villains like Havok out of the water. In other words, I could use some advice on possibly making the MLP equivalent to Thanos, the grand-daddy villain of the Marvel universe

Birthday song Has anyone noticed how different Fluttershy's behaviour is in this video?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPdSbklW_5I

I'd like to point this out and review it a bit if you'll let me.
I'd also like some screencappers to cap Fluttershy's expressions from the video and upscale them in HD.

Fluttershy's expressions, dialogue+adlibbing and voice sounds very similar to S1 rather than S2-S7.
She no longer sounds anxious, in fact she sounds less autistic than her S1 version.
Sadly Pinkie Pie's behaviour is still just as retarded and awful as in S2-S7.
The MLP theme song starts playing like it used to do back in S1.

Her wings stay upright, most of her poses are taken from S1, but her expressions are also from S1. Notice her eyelids coming up, notice her tiny mouth, her little head gestures, her reactions and her body poses, but especially her eyes. Notice how her eyes actually follow the target without blinking.

The pupils and iris cover the entirety of her eye sockets, compared to Pinkie's ugly eye expressions which always expose too much sclera. The enlarged pupils also serve to make the ponies look cuter.

What I was impressed by was the voice actor doing a good job at acting with natural emotion.
A little birdy told me *today is very special* (pause) !!because it's your birthday!!"
She actually changes the pitch of her voice and tries to act.
Unlike her attempt with Pinkie Pie where she just screeches and exaggerates everything in an uncouth arrogant manner.

Meanwhile Fluttershy reacts like an adult this time. Lines such as "This might take a while", "Oh Pinkie" show off a different behaviour than her usual meek anxious self.

Another thing I love pointing out is the logic behind Fluttershy's animation. For example at 0:13-0:15 with the ease-out, ease-in guideline.

The animator only slightly edits her pose out and makes her body follow a direction in order to maintain the smoothness of animation and the pose. That way he doesn't overanimate complicated actions like Pinkie Pie's which would look weird (even with a high budget) and in return we get a smooth ease-in, ease-out animation without abusing cheap robotic tween animations.

Example of recycled animation cycles from S1 are the hopping, leaning and turning animations for both Pinkie and Fluttershy. But a few of the animations like at 1:11 seem original. The majority of Pinkie Pie's animations when she's acting retarded seem taken straight out of S2-S7.

Better Left for Stone and Cold? Discord... Where do I start?

Even though a more powerful villain came along, (Tirek), Discord is still a beloved character and still the favorite villain of many. However, ever since Discord has come back and been reformed, he has been so much more tame a character in his shenanigans. Many would say that it's awesome he's here to stay, but for people like me, who have loved him since day one, it's been a lukewarm experience to see the "New, good Discord." He's still a funny character and damn fun to watch, but is he quite as fun once his evil was all but castrated? I don't think so.

When we first met this whako, he was fun because he was unpredictable and you never really could tell what was up his sleeve; but now, his antics are more tamed and have become more predictable, which can be a bit of a turnoff. It's one of those "what ifs" about the show that makes you think. What if Discord was never given another chance and left in stone? Would he have ever come back? Or would he have found another maneuver out of his prison, with a new tactic to take over Equestria? After all, God knows how long he would have stayed in there if he didn't get out; it took him 1000 years the first time. Would he have concocted another plan that required him to not let his guard down as easily and learn from his arrogance the first time? Making him all the more powerful?

But enough of my text wall, let's discuss it more here

The World Map There's a new map (pic). It shows that pony explorers have made a lot of geographical discoveries in the past five years as a side effect of additional seasons and the upcoming movie.

The 2012 map (first post below) extended north only to the Crystal Mountains and southward only as far as the Macintosh Hills south of Appleloosa. A later map (second post below) opened up the frozen North to show the Crystal Empire and Yakyakistan, revealed Griffonstone to the east of the Celestial Ocean, and extended south to disclose badlands, a Hidden Jungle (probably where Ahuizotl lurks), and the still unexplored territory of the one-eyed Arimaspi. The new map shows a big, important fact: the pony world has both north and south polar icecaps.

What else can be inferred from the new map?

Set From the Wikipedia article on the Egyptian god Set:

"Set is a god of the desert, storms, disorder, violence, and foreigners in ancient Egyptian religion... Set is not, however, a god to be ignored or avoided; he has a positive role where he is employed by Ra on his solar boat to repel Apep, the serpent of Chaos. Set had a vital role as a reconciled combatant....

"In art, Set is usually depicted as an enigmatic creature referred to by Egyptologists as the Set animal, a beast resembling no known creature, although it could be seen as a composite of an aardvark, a donkey, a jackal or a fennec fox. The animal has a curved snout, long rectangular ears, a thin forked tail and canine body ... During the Late Period, Set is depicted as a donkey or as having a donkey's head."

In the official guidebook My Little Pony: The Elements of Harmony, Meghan McCarthy stated this about Discord regarding his reformation:

"I don't think I'd want to reform all of our villains. I don't think that would be realistic. No matter how hard you try, some people (or evil alicorns) just aren't going to change their ways. But for a character like Discord, 'reforming' him allows us to tell more stories with his character. He gets to be the not-always-reliable ally instead of the known enemy." -http://mlp.wikia.com/wiki/Discord


So who do we have left as an antagonist at this point?

Long story short, I used to frequent this board a lot, absolutely loved Celestia, hated Luna, eventually left because people were asshats and other people treated that as normal. Also, I quit watching the show halfway around season 6 (I think it was the go-cart episode) not out of malice, but just because I was getting bored with it.
When I used to be here, a frequent argument I used to get into people with is the intrigue of Celestia's character. The majority of people here were convinced that Celestia was just doomed to be boring forever, and that there was just nothing about her for the writers to write about, so nothing could ever be done.
I don't know how many of you people are still here and still think that way, but let me tell you something: writing isn't done by "looking for stuff to write about". You don't open up the Celestia-box and search desperately for an idea to write about. You actually have to use your brain and think of some kind of plot or characteristic to give her. It's called being creative, which is something I'm sure people who spoke against Celestia can't understand.

Someone mentioned to me that the premiere featured Celestia as part of the central plot, so intrigued, I decided to watch it, and I LOVED it. This episode proved that Celestia is more than capable of having character if the writers actually give a rat's ass about it. She had a sense of humor, showed that she had insecurities at points in her life, but still had the resolve to do what needed to be done. And she was absolutely charming throughout the whole thing.

tl;dr Everybody who said Celestia sucks can eat a dick. You suck. And I'm glad I'm not coming to this website anymore. I'm glad I watched this episode, and I'm glad I got to watch all of you get proven wrong.

>ITT: character design thread/rant

I really liked Changelings but their new designs just are ugly. There's no real color harmony with them.

Take Thorax's design for example. His main body are varying shades of green with a gradient orange where his neck connects with his chestplate. It doesn't look very good since green and orange are neither complimentary colors or analogous. You have to hop the color wheel by one color (yellow) to reach orange.

He has horns (pincers?) that are orange as are the under-ear portions on his head. I'd be for the color unity of it if not for the purple carapace and wings. The eyes are fine since they're meant to stand out, not many ponies have had irises that match their general color scheme before like Pinkie Pie and purple does pair well with orange or green.

But that much purple meshed into his design just ruins what tenuous color balance is happening there. It's a battle of hot colors (the bright green and the orange) fighting with the cool colors (purple/blue) which just makes it offputting.

It's such a damn shame because the simpler designs of the love-eating Changelings are so good. The black holey bodies with the turquoise eyes and matching ripped-looking wings feels like it was designed by someone who had a proper idea of color and good combinations. Even Queen Chrysalis looks good because the green elements to her design nicely pair with the green-blue and black already present in the overall Changeling design aesthetic.

Playing Catch-Up So I haven't touched the series much since Season 3, not because I disliked Princess Twilight, but because I moved back home and not too open about being a fan of the show (family loves to dwell on things that are easy to make fun of. Just ask my gay cousin).

So I finally got to marathon through the series and so far it's gotten pretty dang good!

Season 3 is probably the weakest because it's so short. Twilight's Ascension never bothered me as much as others, though I admit it felt a bit rushed and the purpose of how and why it happened could have been explained/showed a bit better. And despite what the show makers say, I include Equestria Girls as canon since it fits in rather nicely with the rest of the story...it also helps to make Season 3 feel longer.

Season 4 has to be my favorite so far. It has the best continuity, the best stories, and some (but not all) the best songs (You'll Play Your Part is easily my favorite song). Not to mention I think that the way it ended would have been a perfect series finale if it didn't continue.

Season 5 was a lot of fun, but I felt that it lacked the same...oomph that Season 4 had, though that might just be because that Tirek fight was so awesome. The one thing I'm a little irritated by is that the Crusader's Cutie Mark episode felt as rushed as Twilight's Ascension episode was. It should have been saved as the second-to-last episode of the season at the very least, and given at least one or two more episodes of them helping to discover the meaning of other marks before they accepted it as what they'd like to do. As for Starlight Glimmer, I don't mind her joining the cast to make it the Mane 7, so long as she actually grows in character.

I will say this, though. I appreciate that the show is taking the risk of actually continuing the stories and advancing the lives of the characters. Unlike some shows where everyone and everything is in the exact same place ten seasons after the start. It oddly enough gives a sense of maturity to the series as it goes on. Looking forward to catching up on Season 6 and finally getting to watch Season 7.

A few things that I'm still hoping for:

- The Crusaders doing some of their Mark Purpose thing (maybe with Babs showing up again. I liked her)
- Canon Relationships. I don't care who or what they are, but it'd be nice to actually see them attempting it with others. (I'm painting a target on me for this, but I think Twi and Flash Sentry would be a great one).
- More singing! Seriously, they've gotten this prospect down pact by now.
- Seeing more of the families. I know Fluttershy's family is featured a bit in Season 6, but we know almost nothing of Dash's or Twi's families aside from Shining Armor. It'd be nice to see them have some sort of Mother's Day or something.

Season vs. Season 4 (Episodes 2 and 3) So as I discussed before, this one is going to be a bit odd, as All Bottled Up is the first Episode Two that wasn't the second part of a two-part premiere. As such, so it didn't go up against all the other premieres, I'm putting it here, just like I do with Party of One and the other Episode 24s of the series. So let's see what we have this time:

Season 1: The Ticket Master
Season 2: Lesson Zero
Season 3: Too Many Pinkie Pies
Season 4: Castle Mane-ia
Season 5: Castle Sweet Castle
Season 6: Gift of the Maud Pie
Season 7-2: All Bottled Up
Season 7-3: A Flurry of Emotions

So many episodes to compare! It's a bit overwhelming! Plus I feel like a bunch of the episodes are of similar quality. I'm going to go with this:

Lesson Zero > Castle Sweet Castle > All Bottled Up > Castle Mane-ia > Gift of the Maud Pie > Too Many Pinkie Pies > The Ticket Master > A Flurry of Emotions

Can we all agree that Lesson Zero is the standout from all of these episodes? The comedy of Twilight breaking down is great, and certainly one of the best episodes to show people that no, this isn't a saccharine show that only little kids can enjoy.

Castle Sweet Castle I think gets second place only because the ending is so sweet. The rest of the episode is paced well too, though. The conflict of everybody's crazy decorating hits at the right time, and they get over it appropriately as well. Every main character gets a small moment to shine, which I always appreciate.

All Bottled Up shows that yes, even though I'm not a big fan of Starlight, she can play off of certain characters very well, including in this case Trixie. The pair have a very enjoyable friendship, and in a way this almost seems like what a season 1 episode might have been if we started the story with Starlight instead of Twilight.

I almost put Castle Mane-ia above All Bottled up for nostalgic reasons. I do still really enjoy this episode. The character dynamics of everybody work very well. I do think that All Bottled Up is more satisfying in the long run.

Gift of the Maud Pie is sweet as well, of course, further showing Pinkie and Maud's relationship. The biggest issue? Maud never really struck a major chord with me. I mean, she's okay, and I get why people love the humor surrounding her, but to me, she was always just... alright. She's Droopy. You know, the old MGM character? Droopy Dog? Basically the same joke. The episode is fine, but nothing special at least to me.

Too Many Pinkie Pies I think is still a fine episode if you don't think about the schematics of the test in the end. The Pinkie antics are crazy, but at least here they are intentional, and Pinkie prime does get some nice introspective moments. Besides the fridge moment of the final test, it also ranks lower for me because there is still a bit of extra heart in Gift of the Maud Pie that isn't really present here.

The Ticket Master premiered at a point where the series was still gaining its footing, and it does show. It does a good job to further highlight everybody's personalities to get the audience used to the characters, but it still rings shallow, especially compared to what the show would eventually become.

Finally, we have A Flurry of Emotions. Better than what I thought it would be, and certainly better than Baby Cakes! The baby mischief still is a bit eye-rolling, of course, and the episode was incredibly predictable. I also wonder what would have happened if Cadence and Shining Armor chose a more engaging activity. As a person of child-bearing age who knows many people with children, I can attest that even if you love your child, it is still nice to have a break for yourself every now and then, or a private date night with your sweetheart. Then again, you do also get the nerves of being away from your baby during those times. Hmm... Maybe it will rise over time. I just don't think any episode that centers around Flurry is ever going to be that compelling.

PERSONAL STANDINGS:
SP: S5 > S2 > S4 > S1 > S3 > S7 > S6
EP 2-3: S2 > S5 > S7-2 > S4 > S6 > S3 > S1 > S7-3

I noticed that S6 dropped a bit from when I did this list last year. The rest is pretty consistent. Is it just because I am lukewarm on season 6, or because it's been a while since I watched it and I can only really think of Maud Pie?

Anyway, next week we will be back to normal shenanigans. Oh, and more Maud. Oh goody.
