Those things were pretty literally critters from the 80s movie spraypainted other colors in how they acted and looked.>>36828327>>36828328
Yeah, not really a big fan of it; just sat down to watch it, and was pretty dissapointed.
after hearing/seeing neighsay in the preview I was actually kind of hoping it'd be a surprise good one, but overall its was pretty crappy IMO.
The students were mostly unlikeable, the plot felt pretty bad, and the "NO FOREIGNERS/Racism" suplot of neighsay's felt really forced and like an attempt to tack onto current big political subplots in the world.
it wasn't 3/10 level, as there was enjoyable parts and cute mannerisms from the mane six (I actually enjoyed pinkie in this episode for example; her tiny party cannon was a decent joke), but it really needed work.
The fact that the school concept felt just as bad in practice as one would think has me hesitant towards this season--the other school episode I've seen (non-compete clause) was the worst of the leaked episodes and didn't do the school concept well either.
Its not terrible, but its not a good start for a season sadly.>>36828326
the fandom is dead sadly, not just us :(
Try mlpforums though, there's alot more activity over there.>>36828331
Chancelor neighsay was the only truly 100% great thing about this episode.
It was nice that his magic was more visually interesting than the normal "just shoot lasers" general spellcasting.>>36828333well, they explain that in surf and turf. They broke the pearl up into a multitude of tiny pieces and gave every seapony/hippogryph a necklace with a fragment of it so they can change at will.
Its why every one of them wears a necklace you see.>>36828334
Eh, felt like a normal infodump for those who missed the movie IMO.>>36828335>>36828337
I'm thinking obstructive beaurocraft myself. He didn't feel "evil" enough to really work.
plus, we already have the episode list for this season thanks to the hackers, and he's not mentioned ANYWHERE.
I think he's going to be a Season 9 thing, not a season 8 thing. Unless he shows up in either the Starlight principal episode or the finale episode.
