Nice to see Limestone and Marble again and how they helped out with things.

Mud Briar's belated "See you later" was a beautiful detail. So is the semi-rhyme of "Mud Briar" and "Maud Pie." Great moral, great metaphor, good ending, good episode. Enjoyed the mineralogical and botanical geekery. I love a good Quercus.

That was a fun episode. And Pinkie's reaction to Mud Briar and their realtionship was quite 'realistic'. Limestone was there too, so that's an extra plus.

Wait... LandonCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36828385

So... when they gave Twilight a potential boyfriend in Flash Sentry, everybody wants him dead, but when Pinkie's sister has an official one, it's fine? ._. .... What am I missing here?

What about Timber Spruce?! Nobody seems to be upset that They like each other!

The "problem" with Flash Sentry was that he was a spinoff from a totally repellent character in the widely-loathed EQG universe. Duh.

So is Timber Spruce, though admittedly he is a bit more likable.

unlikeable ponyCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36828390

Going to be honest, I was greatly let down by this one.
I was hesitantly hopeful for this one as the last couple of maud episodes have been decent. However this was just... bleh.

This honestly felt like I was watching an episode of Big bang theory, as mudbriar reminds me of a pony sheldon, with his mannerisms-- I fucking HATE big bang theory. Everytime Mudbriar said "Actually" i wanted to hit him with a stick, and found his "THAT'S STICK ABUSE" line more infuriating than funny.

That being said, once we got to the farm with Limestone and Marble it went from shit to pure 10/10-- Limestone was INCREDIBLE and really makes me want an episode all about her or marble instead. Limestone's Joisy' style accent and mannerisms, as well as her having some REAL legitimate wisdom for pinkie was good. Plus her "I'm not jealous!" line was gold.

4/10, with it basically being a 3/10 with 10/10 section near the end.


>>36828389
I actually like timber spruce, if only because he and Sci-twi seem like a good couple. They're both pretty nerdy, and seem like they fit together organically.

Flash looks to be getting shipped back with sunset anyways.

>>36828376
>>36828379
Looks like we're on two different spectrums here on this one :/

>>36828378
That was actually the one scene with Mudbriar that I actually LIKED.

Since they'd taken great pains earlier on to have Mudbriar establish that he puts alot of different emphasis on whether he says "goodbye" or "see you later", him saying "See you later" to pinkie instead of "goodby" was a great way to show that he LEGITIMATELY wanted to have a good relation with pinkie since he wanted to see her again later.


If they bring in Mudbriar again in another maud episode, I really hope they tone back his more annoying traits, as he's about as likeable as Zephyr to me right now. More scenes where he seems to be trying to connect with others.

Well it was the main character instead of a sometimes seen side character, we've already had Big Mac get a girlfriend too so the idea of romance isn't as surprising, plus it's been about 5 years since the first Equestria Girls movie. The fandom's probably matured or at least isn't as easily triggered by now about pony waifus getting a boyfriend.

Because Maud and Mud have actual chemistry. Even showing them having a little debate about if something is a stick or rock was such a huge deal, because while they were disagreeing with each other, they were still enjoying each other's company. You can see how much they understand each other. And you can actually SEE Maud express happiness, and quite a lot of it throughout the episode.

Could have gotten done with the exposition of Stick horse's autism and Pinkie's biased double standards more quickly.
Pinkies other sisters and the shoehorned opposite day rocked though.
Alright with an extra dose of cringe/10

Twilight is mane cast and waifu to many a brony. That's the only reason anyone was mad. I figure there can't be too many people who waifu Maud, although there must be a few lonely broken hearts after this episode...

>>36828407
not to mention the entire first half of the episode was pinkie making plans with Maud then trying to find her when she didn't show up. felt like a lot of filler.

At last, somepony else who doesn't like that awful caricature show. I am so tired of hearing how great it is especially from my gf who uses it to "understand" my autism.

Stick in the Mud has the most annoying haircut and voice EVER and i was disappointed Pinky didn't go full cupcakes on him. Nonetheless, as fake and exasperating as he is, i really enjoyed Maud smiling. I'm not sure if we've ever seen her smile before?

I loved Pinky's sisters and i really relate to Pinky's difficulty in regulating her behavior faced with such a challenge. That her issue was largely created by a long-running "giving-in" by Maud to spare her feelings was poignant too, and i believe was the deeper lesson here. It can really hurt to find out a loved one has been putting up with things about your (my) social skills far too long and while good-intentioned only enables a lack of development of those social skills.

While the Mudstick autism was appallingly caricatured (as a knockoff of an awful autism caricature character), the effect of Maud's historical lack of confronting Pinky's social skills seemed deeply realistic and applicable to my life.
