Season 8 Episode 9 Discussion Thread Marimo!!SpikeCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36828636

This thread is meant for discussing impressions on this week's episode, Non-Compete Clause, during and after it airs.

Be mindful of saying spoilers before they show up on TV.

I think it would've made more sense for them to have been going around in circles instead of just stationary in the river, considering they've been paddling on only just one side instead of switching.

I could only watch part of this as it was streaming, but I thought it was sending a different message from other eps centered on RD's being too competitive. I'll know better after it comes online.

Fucking trash. Absolute trash. 3/10. Worst episode since Applejack’s Day Off.

Laughs on--

• Wall of dazzled FS snaps.
• "...this flowerpot..."

Nothing much after that. Oh well.

>>36828642
yeah, about the only good things were the Fluttershy portraits, the students, who are surprisingly always good, and of course the voice acting and animation.

My main complaint about the episode is Dash and AJ were well over the top, irrationally, competitive and stubborn. It was just obnoxious as hell.

The basic RD vs. Applejack story was told far better back in season 1 in Fall Weather Friends. Notice how many times Twilight referenced their behavior without directly naming that episode?

What was worse was how the students 'played' along with the floor show AJ and RD were putting on.

0/10

Shucks, I liked "Applejack's Day Off." A little world-building. An interesting moral. For a really awful episode, I'd vote for "Magical Mystery Cure."

>>36828648
>how the students 'played' along with the floor show

What, you mean at the end? Yeah, that was lame. But playing along before that is how I'd expect kids of that age to deal with stupid authority figures.

Does uh, anyone else get the vivid sense that the writers are being forced at gunpoint to make episodes?

Actually, this episode and the opening two-parter are the only ones that I thought were woofers. Most of this season has been above average, and a couple of eps were great. I loved "Horse Play." I'm hoping that Mpambara is going to be on board for the rest of the series.

>>36828653
Well, I meant with this episode specifically, guess I worded it badly. But watching this episode, didn't it kinda seem like everything from the dialogue to events to everything else was beyond forced? Like no one wanted to write it in the first place?

Nother NonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36828656

>>36828654
Yeah, "at gunpoint" is maybe too strong. Try uninspired, routine, perfunctory, phoned-in, offhanded, mechanical...

Also, the "Frenemies Tied Together at the End of a Fraying Cord over the Pit of Snapping Freshwater Ungulate-Eaters" bit is more or less lifted from The Emperor's New Groove (The Emperor New Groove 2000 Bridge Scene Together we can).

Rough DraftCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36828657

My main complaint about this episode versus its superior, Fall Weather Friends, is that in this one Dash and AJ almost acted like they didn't even like each other. In Fall Weather Friends, their competitiveness had a playful edge to it until it got really out of hand. In this one, there was never any playfulness or "friendly competition" in it from the start... that was disappointing.

OpinionatedCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36828659

Everyone compares it to FWF, but I feel as if it had much more in common thematically with Ticket Master.

Damn, that wasn't a good episode. The premise was alright but especially in the second half they dragged them not agreeing into ridiculous lengths.

>>36828640
AJ's Day Off was a very good episode.

I especially loved the moral which was totally unfit for children but rather something for managers of a company.

"You need and outside look at your work."

In real life Twilight would have hired a fucking consultancy firm for 10 grand a day to find out what's wrong with AJ's modus operandi.

to steal a quote from Bojack Horseman, Applejack's Day Off was worse than 100 9/11s. I would rather the holocaust happen every 4 years, like the Olympics, than to ever see Applejack's Day Off ever again.

What a great episode with no sapphic undertones what so ever.
