Time for pony!

Back in the day there would have been endless complaints over the fact that Fluttershy is supposed to be good at sewing.

Yeah. I don't think it did much for Fluttershy's character that we haven't seen before, but I liked the execution for how comical it was having Fluttershy just teleport in like Pinkie with a different costume, and getting rid of the alter egos was just firing each individual one. Also loved the montage of who Rarity would go to before Fluttershy, including her briefly considering a rock.

AustroSpikeCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36828418

A bit over the top, but I really liked it anyway.

That, fillies and gentlecolts, is what they call High Comedy. Not a fart joke anywhere. Not a pratfall. Scarcely even a sight gag. All facial expressions and verbal satire. If it was in French and rhymed, people would attribute it to Molière, if Molière wrote plays about candy horses with butt stamps. Way too grownup for the target demographic.

true, but that was back in S1; sadly, there's very few oldfags left :(

>>36828417
On that note, you KNOW you're at the very bottom of the list when rarity asks RAINBOW DASH before you to run a shop. (to say nothing of ponk).

The best scene was rarity having to fire all the different personalities of fluttershy's and getting surprised everytime one showed up.

>>36828419
agreed, 9.5/10, can't really find a single problem.
Loved it from start to finish, and found it a wonderfully entertaining episode, with lots of cute gags and some really funny scenes from fluttershy (as well as interesting pony designs).


Great palate cleanser after the last few episodes :X

There was no instance in the new episode that disagreed with that.

All in all, that was a pretty good episode. Raccoons aren't rodents by the way.

That's why they were so insulted.

That was funny, but it struck an oddly jarring note. Fluttershy must know that raccoons aren't rodents -- and she loves rodents: mice, squirrels, beavers, the lot. Why would she use "rodent" to diss the raccoons? It's like calling a camel a "monkey" as a putdown.

Well, the raccoons were in fact insulted. So she knew they didn't like being called that most likely.

Probably more like the whole calling an ape a monkey thing. It probably is something people would think or believe about raccoons being a type of rodent.

And Fluttershy may know, but not necessarily the character she's playing.

I picked camels and monkeys because they are exactly as closely related as rodents and raccoons. See diagram.

Well, because rodent is an insulting classification as rodents are generally universally seen as dirty and carriers of diseases.
Its also something that raccoons are sometimes called by people that view them as vermin (as some people DO think they're rodents), so it works as being basically a slur.

>>36828423
Goth fluttershy needed her Batwings to fully complete the ensemble.

>>36828422
>>36828414
Also, the fandom is sadly dead is another reason for that :(

>>36828412
One thing I thought was a nice touch was how Rarity's first dress for the runway was basically cosplaying a pony as fluttershy.

On that note, is it common to wear a dress that has you wearing bodyparts of another race of pony's? this is the second time we've seen one with wings.
That's kind of like a white person wearing an outfit to make them look like an asian person.

I love the continuity of this show. The fact that they remembered the raccoons in Rarities Manehatten shop is amazing.

I sure don't remember that, somehow.

I didn't even know that something like a thread count actually exists.

You've never heard of a thread count? Like not even on sheets?

You'll feel it once you realize it. First time I heard about it was when Oprah started talking about high end cotton sheets and pillow cases a couple of decades ago. The fewer the threads weaved per inch, the more coarse the feel of the finished cloth.

I've never bought any sheets, pillows or similar stuff. I use handed down ones which are partially decades old.

>>36828437
Hm, makes sense.

This really should have ended with a scream-yourself-awake nightmare, either Fluttershy's or Rarity's (though it's hard to say whose for sure). In turn, after said character sighs in relief "Well luckily it was all a dream" there's a pan to a room full of cameo raccoon servants which leads us to a shot of Spike waking up from a work-induced fever of his own.

So in fact the whole time the subject of the episode has been that Spike has been working a lot of Saturdays recently, rather than another bizarre Fluttershy-confidence entry for the pile.

Imagine Twilight waking up as a regular unicorn at some point and all from somewhere pretty early in the show was a dream.
