  1. SPOILER ALERT! I just saw “Horse Shoe in”. I like this episode so so much better than some previous episodes. It provides good character development for Starlight and Trixie, and acknowledges Twilight taking her position as ruler of Equestria. I’m so glad we get to see how Twilight’s friendship school will function after she takes over for the royal sisters. It was great to see Octavia and Doctor Whooves again before the series ends. I don’t think we have seen those 2 with speaking roles since “Slice Of Life”. I liked Starlight’s interview process and Doctor Whooves was a really good candidate for the position. Sunburst was the perfect choice for VP headmare. Trixie was very careless but it’s clear she truly wants to help Starlight. I don’t know why some people dislike her so much in this thread when Trixie was trying to help for most of it except the napping scene and the bees. Great lesson! Great pacing! What I wish was improved: Big Mac applying doesn’t make sense to me personally. At least Spoiled Rich applying was more of a joke than Big Mac. It doesn’t make sense why Twilight can’t just rule from Ponyvile since she already has a whole castle there and why she can’t continue to teach in Ponyvile. And I wish it was explained whether the other Mane 5 will teach at the friendship school, at all after Twilight takes power, or do they have other duties, royal or otherwise?? Does Sunburst have to live in Ponyvile now? So many unanswered details.
  2. Nice theory. I actually think Celestia is getting weaker due to age which is why Luna and Celestia want to pass their duties to Twilight. I think Alicorns age and maybe even die but don't show age physically because their alicorn magic gives a youthful complexion. Just my personal theory.
  3. SPOILER ALERT! So I just saw MLP “Dragon Dropped” Not one of my favorites but definitely a better watch on TV, than online as a leak. I sympathized with Rarity a bit more watching this episode a 2nd time because I know how hard it is not to be “number one friend” anymore and I empathized with Spike as he tried to find a time balance for 2 close friends. Rarity’s apologies were hilarious! It was nice to see Gabby again before the series and get a little cameo shot of her with Gallous. It’s nice to see Spike in his role with other species, and see how Twilight’s school is creating more communication between the kingdoms. Twilight was great and had some really great mature chats with Rarity throughout the episode. Rarity’s forms of bribery were perfectly tailored to Spike’s interests so I give her some credit for knowing Spike that well. I also like how we see that Rarity does truly appreciate and love Spike. However something about both Spike and Rarity in this episode felt irritating to me like Rarity would have learned this in earlier seasons rather than in season 9 and Spike already shares his time with characters like Smolder so it seems a bit out of character for this to be an issue between the 2. Spike kinda seems to hang Rarity out to dry and later Gabby out to dry, when he could just explain to both characters the situation and make certain days be for Rarity and other days be for Gabby. Plus didn’t Discord learn this lesson in his gala episode in a way?
  4. On a really important note, the MLP series finale has been released in Dutch and was posted on youtube. I ADORE the finale! (No worries  I won't spoil) However apparently some people hated the finale and threatened Big Jim and DHX with Violence and death threats. https://www.equestriadaily.com/2019/08/the-new-thankyoujim-and-thankyoubigjim.html  This is COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE! I don’t care what the reasons are, you do NOT threaten others! Threatening people over a show is just pure INSANITY! This is NOT what Bronies are about. I wanted my followers to know that I always call out any fandom for inexcusable behavior whether it be the Lilo & Stitch fandom, the My Little Pony fandom or anything else. I saw disgusting behavior in the Stitch fandom after “Stitch! Anime” and “Stitch & Ai” was released and I’m so disappointed and ashamed that the same kind of people followed MLP. My message to the violent haters is: GET OVER IT! IT’S A GOD DA#N SHOW!!!! Go rant on your private online pages but DO NOT threaten or harm human beings. Anyone who threatened DHX was NEVER a real Brony! May the haters get their Karma. I stand with Big Jim and DHX! #ThankYouBigJim

    If you are a non violent Brony or even a member of a different fandom go to twitter and use the hashtag #ThankYouBigJim to tell MLP staff you appreciate them and reject violence ASAP please!

  5. This entry is a re post from my DA page Review of MLP season 9 episode 18 “She Talks To An Angel” SPOILER ALERT! So not one of my top favorite episodes but definitely a HUGE improvement over “2,4,6 Great” and “Trivial Pursuit”. Even though a similar concept was used for “A Royal Problem” the writers were able to use the episode to their advantage to do something they have not done before which is to develop Angel Bunny as a 3 dimensional character with a real range of emotion. It was interesting to learn how Angel experiences the world and that he truly is mute even compared to Fluttershy’s other animals. It was a neat lesson that people who do not communicate verbally still have a full range of thoughts and feelings which seems to be something our society easily forgets. Since mutism is generally considered a disability it can be thought of as another example of Disability Representation in addition to Scootaloo. I like how the writers managed to let us see both sides of Angel and Fluttershy’s conflict without making me hate either character. Andrea Libman rocked it as Angel! Andrea is SO talented! It was fantastic to see Zecora again finally before the series ends! It was also nice to see what Fluttershy does at her sanctuary in more detail. The only thing I didn’t like was Fluttershy trying to teach all animals to be Vegan because even though its a magical world, and probably meant as a reference/joke about Vegans, Fluttershy should know better, that animals need their natural diet to survive.

  7. I consider all official Hasbro released episodes, all of EG and the MLP 2017 movie canon regardless of how much I hate a particular episode. "Trivial" is canon! I'm not one of those weirdos who calls unlikable episodes non canon. I can't stand when fandoms write off parts of a show as non canon because they don't like an episode or spin off. I'm allowed to criticize writing however.
  8. My thoughts exactly. I hadn't noticed that line when I watched it last week and I really wish I had. Thanks! Or they are both great friends and DO care about each other but the writers did NOT make that clear in "Trivial". Pinkie and Twilight acted completely different and more like themselves in the new episode that aired today IMHO.
  9. I agree about Celestia and Twilight. As to ponies, racism, and their physical abilities: what divided the pony tribes seems more equivalent to ableism rather than racism. Ableism is very similar to racism but is based on physical ability or more likely LACK of physical ability as with disability. I define ableism as “Discrimination based solely on the fact a person is disabled” in the real world. The writers covering an ableism type idea would be interesting. I don’t mind the writers covering these topics, I just want a new spin on it different from Season 8, with at least the quality of “Cutie Map” for the finale of the whole series. Covering racism and ableism takes a lot of skill. I completely agree about the Windigos returning! The Windigos returning would make for a fitting plot for the finale. I love that song! I agree, Equestria has newspapers but I doubt their journalists cover things the way we do in the real world. Thanks!
  10. I was thinking the same thing about the guard pony. He only saw Cozy for a spit second before Tirek apparently knocked him completely out. When he woke up he probably heard other earth ponies had been ill and chalked up anything he might have seen to the illness's symptoms. I noticed in season 4 when ponies have their magic drained they become incredibly weak but the memory stayed intact so maybe draining life force is a different power that effects pony mental functions. The guard seemed to get a larger dose of draining than the earth ponies too. I'v been disoriented and really dizzy one time from being sick and I can tell you it does mess with a person's memories of a sequence of events. My family had to fill in the gaps from when I was dizzy as a small chunk was missing...awful experience for me. I could totally see Chystalis doing that!!!
  11. I re watched the episode on TV today before the new episode to see if I missed anything in my previous analysis. From the very first scene Spike can tell Twilight is already at an usual level of “Twilighting” and her behavior is WAY different from the other 2 times she played “Trivia Trot” and multiple times he tries to bring her back down to earth and talk her out of it, by reminding her she is Princess of Friendship and to focus more on how she herself is playing. Sunburst even tells Twilight she’s “out of the zone” compared to previous games. On a rewatch I did notice Twilight said “This game is special, I’m hoping to win” to Pinkie Pie so she did try to get across to Pinkie that it was important to her but I think Twilight should have said “I need to win” more directly to Pinkie since it seems like Twilight just smiled and told Pinkie not to worry every time she(Pinkie) started to notice Twi having trouble, and we know Pinkie does not read subtle body language well. Twilight also rarely let Pinkie Pie even answer so Twilight kinda sabotaged herself in the end either way. Just my 2 cents again.
  12. MLP SUMMER SUN SETBACK: SPOILER ALERT! This episode is definitely my favorite of the most recent MLP season 9 episodes. It fabulously continues the season long arc with the villains and Twilight getting closer to being the ruler of all Equestria like I feel the last episodes of the series should be doing. It does not feel like wasteful filler like the 2 previous episodes. Like I said this episode made me dislike “Trivial” even more. Though I did notice the little callback to “Trivial” as Twilight was joking with the sisters, which was rather clever and funny. Even Twilight acknowledges she freaks more over Trivia than other worries! Twilight and Pinkie Pie are back to normal here Thank God. My favorite scene was towards the end where Twilight raises the sun herself and then beautifully honors Celestia and Luna. That scene truly shows Twilight coming full circle and it was just downright touching. I love the way the lighting around Twilight’s head was the same as the lighting in the beginning of Twilight’s cutie mark story when Celestia is raising the sun so the sun is shinning behind her whole body. The fact that Celestia and Luna picked Twilight to plan the Summer Sun celebration before even deciding this would be the last ceremony was a nice callback to season 4. I like that we got to see more about how the amulet actually works. I love that Celestia and Luna acknowledged the problems Twilight had raising the sun in “Dark and Dawn” and actually gave her a proper lesson. The parts with the villains and the rest of the Mane 6 were funny and well executed. The part where Tirek drained magic out of the earth ponies was interesting and certainly raised the stakes. A lot of people on the internet seem to think Tirek’s use of his powers in this episode was a continuity error because the earth ponies retain their cutie marks but I happen to think Tirek is using his powers in a different way here because it was described as “draining life force” rather than “draining magic” and eating Grogar’s magic may have changed Tirek’s powers slightly. I wonder if “draining life force” could kill a pony? I know that’s too dark for this show but the question crossed my mind regardless. I loved Applejack’s line about nobody listening to her!!! Everyone in the Mane 6 is in character this episode. My only minor problem with the episode is Queen Chystalis’s line at the end where she says that they divided the ponies when they actually didn’t. They created chaos yes but the only ponies who seemed divided by pony race were the unicorns Cystalis spoke to. The idea of dividing the ponies is an interesting one but I beg the writers to please make the lesson of the finale a little more than a lesson on racism PLEASE! Something deeper! Racism was already covered in season 8.
  13. All I can say is this episode makes the last episode "Trivial Problem" seem like an even worse episode.
  14. Again I completely agree! The Mane 6 were having great growth as mentors. My mentors are flawed and still learn from experience but with a better level of life experience and build on top of what they know. The Mane 6 could and should learn new lessons because in real life learning never ends, but NOT stuff they already know as with “Trivial”. Heck even the CMC tutor at the school! The writers seem to want to put the Student 6 in the right over the Mane 6 to fit their own narrative on diversity so it feels artificial. The Twilight freak out joke is getting old fast. About the humor in “Trivial”, the only jokes I really liked were the Applejack and Rainbow Dash jokes, and the one joke where Pinkie Pie swallows the plate along with the food especially since its been mentioned in other episodes like "Cutie Map" that Pinkie has inadvertently swallowed non food items in the past. Pinkie's other gags in "Trivial" had me rolling my eyes. The gags during other fight scenes like throwing cupcakes is probably Hasbro’s doings since Hasbro banned DHX from doing episodes that directly address death etc. Starlight and Trixie had an episode where they didn’t use magic to save the day and even the Mane 6 got a little taste of that sort of plot in season 8 where they worked together to get rid of the bugs on the way to Tartarus and get magic out of other creatures so why not do it again? Thanks!
  15. Great review and analysis! Very good point about "Lesson Zero" being more for Mane 5 than Twilight. About the humor the only jokes I really liked was the Applejack and Rainbow Dash jokes, and the one joke where Pinkie Pie swallows the plate along with the food especially since its been mentioned in other episodes like "Cutie Map" that Pinkie has inadvertently swallowed non food items in the past. Twilight was awful in this episode and deserved her karma.
