Posted by Malakili on 17 February 2013 - 02:14 PM

Here is my list:

 

Masterpiece:

 

Sleepless in Ponyville
Wonderbolts Academy
Keep Calm and Flutter On

Too Many Pinkie Pies

 

Very Good:

Magic Duel

The Crystal Empire

Magical Mystery Cure (maybe it's just Good not sure yet...)

 

Good:

 

One Bad Apple

Just For Sidekicks

Apple Family Reunion


Okay:


Games Ponies Play
Spike at Your Service

 

This season was pretty great in my opinion, with a lot of my favorite episodes of all-time in it, despite a weak premiere and a finale that did not top the previous season's.

 

It is overall my least favorite one, season two being my favorite and season one inbetween them  ;)

#1183462 S03:E10 - Keep Calm and Flutter On

Posted by DashForever on 17 February 2013 - 02:27 PM

You know, initially I felt that Discord's reformation felt a little forced and rushed, but after something a friend of mine said on one of my blog entries I've changed my mind. Discord is kind of like my little brother, in that he loves to cause chaos, but he also loves the reaction that he gets to his chaos. I believe that the reactions that he got were very important to him, and filled some kind of need for him. Anyway, Fluttershy is really the only person he was unable to provoke and because of this I think he wanted to break her most of all, to prove that he could do it without cheating, to prove her wrong, and to prove that trolling people was enough for him. However Fluttershy in spite of his antics was genuinely interested in becoming his friend, and when he finally broke her down and she decided that she'd had enough, he was shown the clear difference between the satisfaction of breaking ponies and the satisfaction of befriending them. He had what he wanted, but it wasn't anything like what he expected.

 

It's sort of similar to this scene (one of my favorite scenes in anything really) where the Joker finally managed to make Batman laugh. He realized that it wasn't exactly something he wanted to happen more often.

 

 

Now that I've thought about it in this way, I'm really satisfied with Discord's reformation and happy that he can be making more appearances. He's still lovable, funny, chaotic and interesting, he's just no longer evil. Seems like a fair trade for probably getting more episodes out of the guy smile.png




#1183334 Hello!

Posted by Firewhirl Chaser on 17 February 2013 - 01:50 PM

Hello everypony!!!

My name is FireFlare (Kirsty) and i'm a twenty six year old Pegasus pony. I decided to join this forum after watching MLP: Friendship Is Magic with my 14 month old daughter and ended up enjoying it a lot more than she did. I used to watch the original My Little Pony back in the eighties when i was about 3/4/5 years old. It was fun to watch then and the new series is even more so!!.

I think i'm going to enjoy being a part of this forum!.


Also Much love for Rainbow Dash. She is AWESOME!! :D.




#1183176 Season 3 Review Thread

Posted by Pixel Stick on 17 February 2013 - 01:01 PM

My six cents (adjusted for inflation):

  • Sleepless in Ponyville (D'awwww!  Excellent dream sequences, plus Luna!)
  • Wonderbolts Academy (Rainbow Dash doing the right thing, even if it means giving up her dream)
  • The Crystal Empire, Part 1 (Helping the Crystal Ponies remember who they are, plus Celestia can be scary!)
  • Too Many Pinkie Pies (FUN! FUN! FUN!)
  • Keep Calm and Flutter On (Fluttershy breaks Discord - well done!)
  • Magic Duel (Trixie's corruption and subsequent redemption)
  • Apple Family Reunion (AJ's OCD episode - not bad)
  • One Bad Apple (Not a big fan of the CMC)
  • Just for Sidekicks (A little too much focus on Spike's greed - we already saw that in "Secret of my Excess")
  • The Crystal Empire, Part 2 (Weakest villain to date - they could have done so much more with him)
  • Magical Mystery Cure (What the hell just happened?)
  • Games Ponies Play (They REALLY tried too hard with this one, IMO)
  • Spike at Your Service (Same here - Spike is noble but almost completely inept!  Seemed very inconsistent.)

I think overall this season had some very good stuff in it, but like Kyronea, I feel it had a lot of missed opportunities.  Sleepless in Ponyville is now my top favorite episode of the series as a whole, and other notable moments in Wonderbolts Academy, Too Many Pinkie Pies and Keep Calm and Flutter On made this season memorable.  But I also felt that this season had the lowest lows of the series as well - I really didn't like the finale nearly as much as those of the first two seasons, and it felt like as the season neared its end, the plots were starting to get into shark-jump territory.  I feel like the show was trying too hard to maintain its velocity.

 

Now, to be fair, I totally understand how difficult it can be to maintain the velocity that it had established in two full seasons of excellence.  While neither Season 1 nor 2 were perfect by any stretch, they must have done SOMETHING right to have gained such a following.  But I mentioned this last week that keeping all the characters "status quo" would inherently limit what the show could do, and would put it at risk of jumping the shark just for the sake of keeping it interesting.  I think Season 3 came perliously close to doing exactly that.

 

Now that Twilight is an Alicorn and a princess (of what, we don't know yet), the show has room to expand into new territory and explore different aspects of friendship that were simply unavailable before, and I have faith that they can do it without grasping at straws or flying over hypothetical large fish.  I think the show would have stagnated if this hadn't happened.  I just wish the ascension had been executed better.

 

I kinda wish one of the Studio B staff would explain why the finale was so jam-packed.  I strongly suspect that Season 4 hadn't been announced until the finale episode was already being produced (or might have even been finished) - it would just be cool to find out if that was indeed the case.  I suppose I could forgive it feeling like a series finale as opposed to just a season finale if that's what happened.




#1183127 S03:E13 - Magical Mystery Cure

Posted by concertoldham on 17 February 2013 - 12:51 PM

Yo. I know I'm a little late to the party, but I'd like to share some thoughts on the episode as well.

 

Things I liked:

- The songs. They were all just amazing.

- Voice acting. I cried at least twice.

- Twilight being an alicorn. I actually approved of it more after I watched the finale.

- Celestia in general. She had such a good part in this and it was nice to see her sing!

- The raw emotion. Watching the mane 6 (minus Twi) struggle with their mixed up cutie marks was absolutely heart breaking.

- DERPY IS THAT YOU?

 

Things I didn't like so much:

- Poor pacing. I know everyone's been saying it but it's true. 

- Seeing Twi fly right away. I thought it would be cool to see Flutters and Dash give her some awkward flying lessons.

- It seemed like Twi kinda gave up quickly with the whole cutie mark problems. It was weirdly out of character and even though she did end up trying again, it was strange how she kinda took a depression break after failing once.

 

These are my thoughts, and again, sorry for being a little late. I DID watch it on the premier date but I wanted to watch it a few more times before sharing my feelings on it.




#1182717 Rank the Mane 6 performance in season 3

Posted by Domon Kasshu on 17 February 2013 - 10:43 AM

Rainbow Dash: Between taking Scoots under her wing, quitting the Wonderbolts(even for a brief period), and taking the full blame for the disastrous Equestian Games inspection, imo, she really shined the most out of the mane 6. But to be fair most of it was arguably damage control after the more or less scathing reception her characteization received during most of season 2

 

Applejack: She was up there with Rainbow Dash as one of the best character growths in season 3, mainly in part that she had some important roles such as in SAYS and Sleepless as well as plenty of screentime that was needed. Plus she got that long awaited song everyone's been wanting.

 

Pinkie Pie: Despite an excellent starting moment with Too Many Pinkie Pies, for most of the season she reverts back to her more season 2 randomness, but unlike season 2, I enjoyed her here more, likely because her randomness involved her friends(unlike most people I found her characterization in Wonderbolt Academy and her worry for Rainbow Dash to be adorable)

 

Fluttershy: Mostly because she finally had an episode that doesn't involve her overcoming her shyness, despite a few questionable moments like in Magic Duel

 
Twilight: I don't think she grew as many other mane 6 characters did, mostly because I don't know if she needed more, I dunno it's hard to describe. Though she did grow in Crystal Empire, but I'm still questioning the change of the season finale until season 4 to make a full judgement.
 
Rarity: Mostly because she didn't really get the spotlight much. She had some good moments like in Sleepless and Games Ponies Play, but in all she really got the shaft this season, which sucks because she's my second favorite character



#1182923 Derpy's Back :DDDD

Posted by CITRUS KING46 on 17 February 2013 - 11:50 AM

I'm not gonna start believing anything until she's seen in S4, but I suppose that's certainly some slightly reassuring news xP

 

I have the same mindset. But even if this is her last appearance on the show, it's a pretty nice final shoutout to the community.

 

If she is back, then my offical head cannon is that she spent all of S3 time travelling.




#1182231 What are the positive qualities of Rainbow Dash?

Posted by Pixiesong on 17 February 2013 - 06:55 AM

I like Rainbow Dash! She's not my most favorite, but  she's at the top of my list. 

 

I'm guessing most people like her because she looks cool, and has a tomboyish personality, which male fans of the show seem to relate to, as well as girls. Also, RD may behave rudely in front of others, but she has her moments when she's sweet, and caring. She just doesn't like to show it. Her loyalty to her friends is also amazing. But unlike most of the mane six, she lives for adventure, and is very fast-paced and full of action.

 

Some fans just like her for her looks, but most people adore RD for her awesomeness and personality. She makes being a pegasus 20% cooler (excuse me for the RD quote)! 




#1182745 Let's show Hasbro that we care! C'mon!

Posted by Pixel Stick on 17 February 2013 - 10:53 AM

Having the right to do something doesn't mean it's right to do so. Though, we have to wait for Hasbro to give us a reason. It better be a good one. All this uproar from the fans, in my opinion, is necessary to make sure Hasbro actually wants to give a reply to settle us down, rather than try to tip-toe around us if we are not doing anything about it. Then we can judge if the reason is reasonable enough. If it is, we will settle down eventually, like the Derpy incident. If it isn't... Well, Hasbro's gonna have a hard time for a loooooooooong while.

 

And this right here demonstrates that you have completely missed my point.  Hasbro does NOT have to give you a justification.  The simple fact that it's THEIR property is enough in the eyes of the law.  And it is not up to YOU to decide if Hasbro's reasons for shutting down an unauthorized game are "reasonable".

 

And as I said before, forming an angry mob and bitching and whining at them non-stop is likely only going to piss them off further.  Also, I suspect that once the controversy dies down, you and whichever few people decide to join you will be the only ones left still fighting them on it, while the majority of us will have moved on.  Don't you think that would look rather silly?

 

Hasbro's partner will sue = why would they?

 

The partner company licensed to develop official MLP games?  They can sue because Mane6 does NOT have a license to the property.  If Hasbro were to allow Fighting to continue, it would be a breach of contract for the licensee, and a dilution of Hasbro's brand rights.

 

Lose potential customers = more like gain thousands more

 

I doubt that.  If you were given the choice between a commercial game that cost money to play, versus a free downloadable game using the same characters and property, which would you choose?  And that is what we call unfair competition when one of the groups involved doesn't have a license.

 

Children would not like it = my 6 year old cousins adores it

 

I never said kids wouldn't like it.  In fact, I'm sure they'd love it.  But you're missing the point: The show is about FRIENDSHIP.  It's about characters who genuinely care about each other and work out their differences through peaceful means.  Beating each other senseless goes against the entire grain of this property.  If Hasbro were to allow this game to become mainstream, it would send a very confusing message to those children.

 

Parents thinks it violent = there are lots of worse things on the Internet ...ahem, cupcakes

 

As has been pointed out elsewhere, Cupcakes was released anonymously, such that the original creator of it can't be tracked down.  If Hasbro knew where it had come from, they would probably be trying to shut it down as well.  But further, things that are inherently adult-oriented are not as big a problem as games that could be seen as being targeted at the same demographic as the show itself.

 

Just paranoid = ...this explains everything And this doesn't explain why 'Friendship is Witchcraft' and 'Rainbow Dash Presents' got shot down too. Especially the latter, that doesn't even use footage from the series.

 

I can't speak for "Rainbow Dash Presents", but from what I understand, Hasbro did not directly shut down Witchcraft - it ran afoul of Google's Content ID system, which also shut down a lot of other legitimate parodies, commentaries and fan works, even ones that were playing completely by the rules in terms of fair use.  You should be directing your anger for that one at YouTube, not at Hasbro.

 

Aren't the conventions for adults? Children can't play it without their parent's help to download it anyway. Why would that be a problem?

 

Oh come on.  Do you seriously think a My Little Pony convention would be an adults-only experience?  This game was to be publicly exhibited at the con, and I've been to enough sci-fi/fantasy and furry conventions to know that young children do attend even when there's nothing there specifically for them, and they often are allowed to run around without adult supervision, despite what the rules might say.




#1182463 What Kind of Fan are You?

Posted by N8C8 on 17 February 2013 - 09:07 AM

Well, the title is pretty self explanatory. There are several different kinds of fans to choose from.

 

For instance, there is the desk fan:

There is the hand fan:

There is also a ceiling fan:

Well, pretty much any kind of fan you can think of. So, which one are you?




#1180210 Season 4 Preview & Info [Spoilers]

Posted by Kyronea on 16 February 2013 - 03:33 PM

Season Four presents us with a grand assortment of new opportunities.

First, we need to learn what precisely Twilight is a Princess of. Is she the Princess of Magic? Of Friendship? Or is she something else? Is she perhaps the Princess of Knowledge, who teaches all, which is why Celestia said that everyone was Twilight's student now?

Second, we need to learn where she will live and how the rest of the Mane Six will interact with her. Will she stay in Ponyville, turning the library into a royal home, complete with royal guards stationed outside? Will she move to Canterlot or to the Crystal Empire? If she does, which of her friends will follow and who will stay behind? If ponies stay behind, do we see them during CMC episodes?

Third, what is the show going to be about in general? There are so many things Twilight could do. We could see her learning new things about herself as she copes with her royal duties. We could potentially see her traveling Equestria or even the world, with her friends by her side, a season of adventure, world-building, and wacky hijinks.

Fourth, there's potential for some new villains out there. Starswirl the Bearded, for one, could potentially show up as the Big Bad of season four, a counterpart mage to Twilight's mastery over magic. We've seen how his previous spells, his time travel spell and his half-finished destiny spell both tried to rewrite reality, but we don't know his purpose. It could be his purpose was something harmful. Sombra could have been a victim of his destiny spell, for example, rendered cruel and mindless because it was the result of what the spell did without an Element of Harmony to at least channel it into something not completely malignant.

In truth, what we do know is that we don't know anything, and that makes season four exciting! The fact that it's unpredictable means it's going to be a lot more interesting to watch it unfold.

It is, of course, possible that season four will be terrible. It's possible that Princess Twilight will receive so much focus that her friends are marginalized and that the show turns into "The Twilight Sparkle Hour" which for obvious reasons would kill the thing we love about it so much. I don't think that's likely though.

I remain cautiously optimistic, for now, to see what season four will bring. I'm hoping it'll be fantastic.




#1182583 Season 3 Review Thread

Posted by Radiance64 on 17 February 2013 - 09:55 AM

I liked season 3 for the most part, but it has to be my least favorite season compared to seasons 1 and 2, with 2 being my favorite and one being my second favorite. The episodes just didn't wow me as much as the ones from the last 2 seasons did as a whole, but I do appreciate it for being experimental and keeping consistent continuity, and having the balls to really change something; make no mistake, this show is going to take liberties and I like it! I would probably rank the episodes like this, from favorite to least favorite:
1) Magic Duel
2) Keep Calm and Flutter On
3) Magical Mystery Cure
4) The Crystal Empire, parts 1 and 2
5) Apple Family Reunion
6) Games Ponies Play
7) Spike at Your Service
8) Wonderbolt Academy
9) Just for Sidekicks
10) One Bad Apple
12) Sleepless in Ponyville
13) Too Many Pinkie Pies

Maybe a little avant-garde compared to popular opinion, but it's how I really felt about the episodes. No I didn't love Sleepless in Ponyville, and yes, I did love the finale, so :P
Oh, and you can find my full reviews of some of the episodes here on my blog:
