Hey all, I was just wondering how much attention you pay when you're watching a movie or a TV show. I usually pay pretty close attention, and I'll see other people who constantly walk away from the screen or text their friends while watching something. It surprises me because I feel like you're not truly watching if you're constantly being distracted and doing other things while watching. It takes away from the viewing experience, and it makes it hard to get a good sense of the narrative. So yeah, let me know how much attention you guys pay when watching something.
2 characters who got insane fan reactions in the day following their debut. But who got the most attention? Who got the bigger reaction the day they first appeared?
Applejack is underrated. Big deal, I've been saying that, another person has been saying that, everyone's been saying that. Applejack has zero character development. Again, everyone says that. In any topic about AJ, there's always someone saying that kind of thing. Applejack is background pony. Here is the common insult that AJ haters love to say, to troll us. Yes, there are insults for other characters, as well, such as neat freak or arrogant jerk. But this comment here is special. Not in a good way, of course. It's unique for Applejack. Unique of her to be part of the mane six, yet also a background pony. Now here's the thought. Why do people say these kinds of comments so often when talking about Applejack? Let's see what she has. - Bucking ability. - Lasso ability. - Athletic. - Farmer working at Sweet Apple Acres. - Honest friend with a great personality. I'm going to analyze each of those traits. Bucking Ability - She's extremely skilled at it because she's been doing this ever since she was a little filly. Applejack can buck apples much better than her relatives in Appleloosa and probably anywhere else. In other words, she's pro at it. She's better at applebucking than everypony else...except for Big Macintosh, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, Twilight, and possibly even Rarity. Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash can fly into the trees as seen in Cider Squeezy. Seeing as even Fluttershy can make all the apples fall off, it's more than likely Rainbow Dash can, too. Twilight harvested an entire quarter of the Acres with her magic. Rarity may be less magical than Twi, but she can levitate things perfectly well, and thus I believe she could harvest at least two at a time. Big Mac can harvest an entire tree with one leg, while AJ needs two. Lasso Ability - Vital in catching Discorded Rainbow Dash in the Return of Harmony; she's a great shot, even catching RD at high speed. This ability is also shown in Boast Busters and Fall Weather Friends. However, if this was to be AJ's primary ability, it should be shown more often. It has not, and therefore is not her unique ability. Athleticism - This trait is shared with Rainbow Dash. She appears to be much stronger than RD in her hind legs, but extremely weak in her front legs. Which raises a question. How did RD get her forelegs stronger than AJ's? AJ bucks with her hind legs. She stands on her forelegs. Which means that they should be plenty strong too, and not just Bucky McGillycuddy and Kicks McGee. Rainbow Dash is almost as strong as AJ, and yet AJ is nowhere as fast as RD. I compare them, because those two are the most athletic. Farming - The whole Apple family does that. Honest friend- Perhaps the only thing that makes Applejack stand out as a character is that she's the best supporting friend there is. She always tries to comfort her friends and hates disappointing them, as shown in the Last Roundup. Is that the type of thing that's going to earn her popularity? No. Some people - only some - don't appreciate what a good friend does nowadays. That's the end of my analyzation. No bias. Which part of those traits - ANY of them - make her stand out? None, right? Exactly! (I'm answering my own questions, wow. ) So that's what I think. I think that (bias included) Hasbro should make her friggin' undeveloped character go developed and stop trying to dump her. I can tell you exactly when her hat disappears because they forgot to include it. Yes, Hasbro, in my opinion, pretty much forgets about Applejack. Search up the Crystal Fair Song, go to the end, and try to find Applejack. You can't. So what does she need to stand out? To prove that she isn't just a background pony, a filler of space? Does she need a special talent? Twilight - Powerful magic Rainbow Dash - Fast speed Pinkie Pie - Pinkie sense Fluttershy - the Stare Rarity - Gem findings, best fasion designer And Applejack has...applebucking. Yay. Woohoo. Does she need more character flaws? Twilight - OCD, know-it-all Rainbow Dash - Arrogant Pinkie - Nagging, sometimes Fluttershy - Shyness and helplessness Rarity - Drama queen and also somewhat arrogant Applejack is stubborn. I can also say she's uncouth, bad-tempered, and argumentative, but when have those traits ever been even mentioned or shown in an obvious way? Does she need a song? Twilight - Well, every one of her songs stand out. Pinkie - Smile song Rainbow Dash - Find a Pet was actually featured, and she has the best part in the Gala song. Fluttershy - Again, Find a Pet. Rarity - Becoming Popular Applejack has no song or a part of a song that stands out. Does she need a good, quality episode, or something that would make her seem more interesting? Twilight - Lesson Zero Pinkie - All Rainbow Dash - Sonic Rainboom Fluttershy - Hurricane Fluttershy Rarity - Sisterhooves Social and A Dog and Pony Show Applejack has Applebuck Season, which is as plain as socks, and the Last Roundup, which was stolen by Derpy. Please tell me what you all think, and analyze her character, and think of ways to improve it.
