Breddy good. Didn't quite get AJ's role in that whole thing though.
Granny Smith letting her mane down absolutely killed me.

Also I hereby declare Season 8 officially the floaty head season.

This might be the strongest start to a season we’ve had in awhile.

That was a fun episode! Best of the season so far.

Just AJ's angle was weird.

COMPLETELY disagree there. Bleh.

>>36828459
I expected nothing, and I was still let down; this one was a MASSIVE drop from last weeks incredible fluttershy episode.

Its basically just a bunch of gags about "hey, look at the old ponies!", none of which I particularly care for; additionally, the lesson (as much as there can be one?) seemed to be, what, "don't listen to AJ?"
Honestly found the AJ ghost scenes to be more annoying than anything, apart from the "do I really have to say it?" one, which was actually kind of funny.


Not that this was a total loss: RD was INCREDIBLY cute in this one, and her expressions and mannerisms basically MADE the episode-- unfortunately, the rest of it was pretty straight shit.
4/10.

its nice to see Trixie's dad though.

The complete opposite was the case!

It had many good moments but Fluttershy coming to her senses happened way too fast, ruining the entire ending.

Grannies Gone Wild was more fun!

I was touched, as I always am, by the gimmick where the old lady pulls back the loose skin on her face and reveals the ghost of the young girl still hiding inside. And I thought the business involving the oral transfer of the tip to the bellhop was charmingly disturbing. The intermittent throb of repressed old-woman sexuality under this made it a more grownup episode than usual.

“Anybody can look at a pretty girl and see a pretty girl. An artist can look at a pretty girl and see the old woman she will become. A better artist can look at an old woman and see the pretty girl that she used to be. But a great artist-a master-and that is what Auguste Rodin was-can look at an old woman, protray her exactly as she is...and force the viewer to see the pretty girl she used to be...and more than that, he can make anyone with the sensitivity of an armadillo, or even you, see that this lovely young girl is still alive, not old and ugly at all, but simply prisoned inside her ruined body. He can make you feel the quiet, endless tragedy that there was never a girl born who ever grew older than eighteen in her heart...no matter what the merciless hours have done to her. Look at her, Ben. Growing old doesn't matter to you and me; we were never meant to be admired-but it does to them.”

That's a good, relevant, moving quote. But the end of it is the sort of eloquent and persuasive bullshit that Heinlein was so adept at slinging. This is the voice of a 54-year-old man telling himself that growing old doesn't matter to us guys -- because men "were never meant to be admired." Meant? By whom? God? Natural selection?

If we're talking about evolution, the truth is just the reverse. In most species, the males (the ones with the innumerable, tiny, cheap gametes) sing, dance, display, and strut their stuff in hopes of being admired and chosen by the drab, non-singing females (the ones with the few, big, valuable gametes). Both human sexes display, because the males help feed the babies. But -- males never meant to be admired? Horse apples (to quote Rainbow Dash). If men were indifferent to getting old and un-pretty, President Trump wouldn't be combing his ear hairs over the top of his head and dyeing them yellow.

Incidentally, the first time I ever saw that youth-restoring gimmick, the skin that was being pulled back was on the face of a man -- Robin Williams in Hook: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6s8ZEFUSYAI)
