    S08:E03 - The Maud Couple

    Note: Over the last few weeks, some content originally leaked (e.g., the Student Six's names) have been officially revealed, and chances are more will, too. But as always, please keep all leaked content not officially revealed yet — and/or if you're unsure if you're revealing too much — under the "spoiler" tag. (Hit the eye icon to trigger it and type within it.) Title: The Maud Couple Air Date (U.S./Disc. Family): March 31st at 11:30am Writer: Nick Confalone Summary: "Pinkie Pie's super-best-friend-sister bond is challenged when Maud gets a boyfriend that Pinkie can't stand." DailyMotion:
  2. In season 7 episode 3 we heard a tale about Grogar. Forshadowing? Finale? What do you guys think?
  3. Welcome back everypony to another edition of Batbrony Reviews. OK, third episode of Season 6 with a new team of writers. How did I think this turned out? Well, all in all pretty good, I'd say. This was hardly my favorite third episode of a season ever (and yes, I do categorize those because I think they play an important part in setting a tone for a season), but it wasn't awful, that's for sure. Without further ado, let's take a look at "The Gift of the Maud Pie"! Seems legit So I suppose the best way to go about covering this episode is looking at its three main characters, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, and Maud Pie. Starting things off with Pinkie, my feelings on her here are a tad mixed. I think with her it was most apparent that this was a new writing team, because given how over-the-top she was, I never felt like they were completely comfortable writing for her, like they were hitting so many Pinkie-tropes just to prove they know how to write her. It felt somewhat forced, but on the other hand one can justify her behavior here as well. We know that Pinkie Pie absolutely loves her family and totally goes the distance for them even more than she does with most ponies, so sometimes with something like a special day like this with her sister, she can get over-the-top even for her. None of the actions she took felt wrong for her character, just some of the reactions went on just a bit too long at times, is all. But that said, I could totally see the dilemma here being a problem faced by Pinkie Pie, she was fun, a good sister and friend as always, and just plain ol' Pinkie. Plus it was nice that she was the one learning a lesson, and from her older sister no less, which feels very natural; it feels right that if she's going to learn a lesson at this point in the show, it should be from someone older and a bit more mature than her like Maud who gets both her sister's flaws and strengths. Overall, she was just fine; it was hardly my favorite Pinkie episode ever, and I might've liked a little more nuance with her character, but she was good. Pinkie Pie and the Quest for Diabetes! I'm honestly surprised it took Pinkie six seasons to almost get arrested Best... song... EVER!!! Our supporting Mane 6 character, Rarity, was great here. With her, I actually liked her more dramatic side coming to the fore just because that makes sense when she's with Pinkie. When the Mane 6 are coupled with each other, they tend to bring out different sides of each other; Rarity by her nature is a bit of a drama queen already, so paired with the most over-the-top member of the Mane 6, it makes sense that she'd be more dramatic than usual. Her impression of Pinkie Pie was possibly the best humorous moment of the episode, and it didn't feel like she was unnecessarily going out of her way to help Pinkie either. She's generous by nature in all things, including with her time, and especially to one of her closest friends who she knows cares so deeply about her sister, this makes perfect sense for her. I did like too that we continue to see her business expanding, as it's a nice recognition from the writers that time is not static in this show, but continues to pass; these girls grow older, they have new achievements in their professional lives and are not defined solely by being friends with each other and heroes of Equestria. Hopefully we eventually get to see this shop open up, and maybe even Coco Pommel will get involved in it somehow! Finally, I'd be remiss if I did not mention Rarity dressed up as Audrey Hepburn from Breakfast at Tiffany's. I mean, my gosh, it's about time that reference happened! Audrey was simply the walking, living, breathing definition of chic and style, so it's just a perfect fit using Rarity to make such a reference, and my goodness, she looked fabulous with that look! Overall, Rarity had a solid outing here, it was nice seeing her with Pinkie and Maud, and she filled a supporting role very nicely in a not-so-serious episode. Oh my, oh my, oh my, I need more of this look on her!!! SO MUCH MORE OF IT!!! Quickly, give me fan art, now!!! When you've officially spent too much time around Pinkie Pie Finally, we come to the best character in the episode: Maud. I would just like to reiterate that when Maud was first introduced, I was not a fan, not in the slightest. I didn't like the schtick they were doing with her for a long time, but I think they started winning me over around the time Rainbow Rocks came out. I think what changed was that at first, it felt like they were treating her personality too seriously, but now when they use her they have a nice combination of self-awareness in satirically using her while still treating her like an actual character and not just a walking joke. Case in point, she was hilarious here. Maud, as always, was just Maud; neutral as anyone can be, interested by the last things any pony ever expects (including, yes, cracks in the sidewalk), and just doing her thing with Boulder. But, as always too, she surprised in pleasant ways. Her delivery of the lesson was perfect in its setup and execution; she gave back Pinkie's gift without a second thought and then very soundly explained to her sister what giving a gift is really all about. It's gratifying to see a lesson about selfless love coming from that character because it reinforces that yes, Maud does indeed have a lot of personality and cares about the ponies around her, she just does it in her own way. But when you get down to it, in the end, she does care about the ponies in her life, even if she doesn't show it as most ponies would. Hopefully we get to see some more from the other Pie sisters this season, but for me, this was a great appearance from Maud and she carried herself very nicely; for a new writing team, they struck a wonderful balance with her in having her be both funny as only Maud can without coming across as just a caricature, but still a character whom we can take seriously and care about unironically. Great episode from Maud, and definitely the strongest character here, I thought. Maudjestic: Majestic taken to a whole new level! Too hawt for me to handle When you officially done bucked-up As for the rest of the episode, it had a lot of highlights. We got to see a lot more of Manehattan this time around than we have in past episodes there, and I loved as always seeing more of that city and its ponies. The couple of references they made were great (it was very nice seeing a return of the Planes, Trains, and Automobiles reference in the Steve Martin and John Candy ponies, and fitting in both a Big and Breakfast at Tiffany's reference in the same episode was pretty awesome too), the settings themselves were very colorful and I look forward to rewatching this episode and trying to spot things I might've missed the first time around. The one thing that kind of rubbed me the wrong way with the animation was I felt they were doing a bit too much at certain points with some of the faces Pinkie and Rarity were making, like the expressions were a bit more than what was called for, even for ponies as dramatic as these two. The party cannon gag was almost abused, especially early on, but once you saw how they fit it into the episode it made a bit more sense and was pretty forgivable in that regard. See what I mean about the faces? It's just a bit much, even for Pinkie; not terribly distracting, but noticeable enough Overall, this was a nice third episode of the season; like I said before, it was hardly the best one we've ever had and certainly less impactful on the rest of the season than third episodes in the past have proven to be, so a little more akin to Too Many Pinkie Pies from Season 3. But it was funny, had some really great sights and animation to take in, and hit just enough high notes to be plenty enjoyable. I look forward to rewatching this one and, like I said, catching bits I might've missed, and all in all, I think the season is going just smashing so far. Until next time everypony, this is Batbrony signing off. I'm off!!! *cue dramatic exit*
  4. Alrighty, welcome back everypony to another "Batbrony Reviews". Second week of new episodes, third episode of the season, and the first proper Slice of Life episode of Season 5. Let's get this show on the road: this is "Batbrony Reviews: S05: E03 - Castle Sweet Castle". In my honest opinion, this was a perfect transition into the primarily Slice of Life format that will more than likely make up the bulk of Season 5's episodes, as has been the case with all other past seasons, and that's really what's most important for third episodes of MLP seasons, when you think about it. It wasn't the best third episode we've ever seen of a season, that honor still goes to the still amazing "Lesson Zero" of Season 2, but it's definitely up there as far as third episodes go. It had a very nice balance of continuity, good characterization, and pretty good pacing for the most part. First of all, it was very nice that they addressed early on in this season Twilight's losing Golden Oaks Library and moving into a brand-spanking new castle (and very empty too, I might add, this isn't like Canterlot Castle, the heart of Canterlot and all of Equestria's political activities, at all). Golden Oaks had been her home since the very first season, and was near and dear to both the main characters and us fans as well by this point, so it really did need to be addressed. The first couple of scenes did a great job of conveying how Twilight's been trying to cope with it by stubbornly trying to make it a non-issue, which to me is great characterization for her because it shows that some vices never change. Twilight's always been very uncomfortable making her problems other ponies' problems, especially her friends, and while in many ways she's grown out of that as she's learned about the magic of friendship, it's still stuck with her, regardless, and it's understandable why. She's a princess now, she's got all kinds of new responsibilities as well as perks (she's also always been very self-conscious of anyone suggesting she's better than others), and really, who would want to complain to your friends that you have a gigantic castle? So again, Twilight handling this particular problem by simply trying to ignore it and treat it like a non-problem, felt very in-character for her, I liked it. Fare thee well, Golden Oaks Library; you were a good home filled with good memories The rest of the Mane 6 (let's call them the ReMane-ing 5, I've been seeing that term a lot in the episode thread today) handled this problem very excellently as well. They were very discerning in their uncovering it, and of course it was a very generous thing they did offering to renovate Twilight's castle and make it feel more homey. I will admit that the primary conflict, the fact that they couldn't figure out what to do with it, felt like a Season 1 problem given that they were so oblivious at first, but that is somewhat forgivable given that Twilight didn't really have any mementos they could fetch from the destroyed Golden Oaks Library, so it makes sense they'd try giving from their own homes instead at first. I also forgive the fact that it felt like a Season 1 problem since they worked through it on their own; as soon as I realized what the conflict was going to be, I was worried that Twilight was going to teach them what they'd done wrong. But no, instead, very similar to how Twilight didn't take center-stage last week, the ReMane-ing 5 figured out they'd goofed, worked through their goof, and determined together what they'd do to fix it. Even Spike got to shine in his own little subplot, and he was characterized quite nicely really; he and Twilight shared a couple of very nice moments together (most notably outside the charred remains of Golden Oaks Library), and the little guy actually contributed as well. In fact, everyone really felt very nicely characterized, a very pleasing carry over from the season opener as well; it's nice to see that characters like Pinkie Pie aren't being written as near-caricatures of themselves as has happened in more recent seasons. The ending was incredibly sweet, and a great way to send off Golden Oaks Library but also pay tribute to it. There were some nice call backs, the ReMane-ing 5 came up with a great solution, and Twilight's reaction was to die for. It was nice to hear too that they did manage to renovate other rooms as well, because it would have felt just a little anti-climactic if all they'd changed was the throne room. I look forward to seeing what some of the other rooms look like in the castle as the season goes on, but this, this was a nice start. The humor was very spot-on this week, and very similar to the season opener, seemed more dialogue-driven than physical. It was very fast-paced in its delivery, but all the delivery felt spot-on, and there were some incredibly funny scenes. The opener with Angel Bunny was pretty funny, the pancake breakfast scene killed me, particularly Pinkie's bit with the measuring cup and Twilight's sleeping on a pancake (also adorable, if I might add), the clutter-scenes at the castle, especially Pinkie's running gag with her hidden confetti cannons, killed, the spa scene came out of nowhere in how funny it was (especially Bulk Biceps' surprise appearance), and all in all the execution of all the humor in this one just felt right. Neither Pinkie nor Spike came across as idiots in their humor (again, most of it being dialogue driven), and I really liked that; yeah, things still happened to them at their expense, but not in a way that took away from the characters or mischaracterized them. I'm going to eat all these pancakes and you can't stop me!!! Aw crap, I forgot how to eat! That doesn't go there!!! Of course this guy's a masseuse, I mean, why wouldn't he be? If there's a new way to make Bulk Biceps even more amazing than he already is, the DHX crew will come up with it and make it canon. :comeatus: The song and its reprisal I enjoyed very much; it wasn't anything super special, but it felt very nice for a Slice of Life episode, and it's worth noting that I don't think we've ever seen the ReMane-ing 5 sing a group song without Twilight. The animation as usual was gorgeous, and it was nice getting to see both old and new sights; the castle looks very nice and is really getting a feel of its own compared to other royal buildings in Equestria, and it was lovely getting to see the spa again (not to mention getting to hear Aloe speak for the first time, though I'm confused now; Lotus is apparently Swedish, but Aloe... isn't? So does that mean they're twins, or lived separately, or just really look alike? Bah, this is what this show makes me think about...). Other than that, there's not really much else to say. It was just a very lovely Slice of Life episode, and given that it was the first one ever written by Joanna Lewis and Kristine Songco, I'm very impressed with the job they did. The main body of the season's off to a nice start, and I can't wait to see what comes next! Till next week everypony, this is Batbrony, signing off. I'm off! *cue dramatic exit* Seriously, though, I am so confused now! Are you two twins or what, cause one of you sounds Swedish, and the other sounds completely Anglicized?!
  5. It took me sweat and hard work (almost blew my head off) to make it 20% cooler so here it is: http://youtu.be/Y7fJEtPCzXk I used many different scenes from the 3 first episodes of Season 5, and I'm happy of what it came out to be. PLEASE NOTE: the first version I made of this was messed up by the video editing program I used so I had to adjust everything back to as it was as I could, and it came out to be as good as the 1st version too, even though I had to work for another hour just because of iMovie (thanks apple). Please rate it in the comments of the video or here and tell me what would have been nice to add up to the video. Some, SOME scenes like the first ones might come unsynced but blame Apple.
  6. Release Dates: PC/Mac (Worldwide): Tuesday, April 8th. Playstation 3 (North America): Tuesday, April 8th. Xbox 360 (Worldwide): Wednesday, April 9th. Playstation 3 (Europe): Wednesday, April 9th. iOS: Coming next week. Who else is excited?
  7. Spoilers of course. My initial thoughts / review. Screenshots and other fun stuff. Just as I had hoped, the box/keys seem to be the theme for the whole season. Also, why is Spike feather dusting with the room in this condition? Gotta clean up them books first, Spike. Not the last time I thought "Poor Spike" this episode. I really have enjoyed Spike more this season so far as compared to previously in the show. Ahhh! Right after I mention I'm interested in this place, the whole episode takes place here! Celestia and Luna's old place, eh? I wonder why they chose this location... SO MANY QUESTIONS. Reasons #45 - #10,831 why I love Twilight ^ First thought: "Uh, context plz?" Pinkie is great this episode. I hate that bunny, man. The guillotine would be too swift for the likes of him. I love this scene. It's so SpoooOOOooky. That music too. Great stuff, this. "We must use the upmost care--" Yeeeah, I saw that coming. Aw yiss, AppleDash brohoof! By the way, if neither of you are scared then why is it daring for you two to stay in here? Just asking. Haha that's funny, the picture's eyes mo-- that's Granny Smith isn't it? ISN'T IT? Remind you of any other staircases from the show? Also, out of context it looks like a time warp or something. I love how Rarity doesn't seem scared at all the whole episode (until the end, anyway). "The trapdoor slide is Luna's favorite!" Please give me fanart right now please please. This is too cute. You'd think somepony'd turn around and see somepony here... Oh well. Funny scene is funny. I don't know if it's just me but Fluttershy looked a bit creepy here. This scene was just too good not to be made into a poster. So I made it into a poster. This should have been pretty obvious, but it surprised me somehow. :3 Very enjoyable, the episode was.
  8. This just hit me. Could the mirror lake hidden away in Everfree be used to create armies that would terrorize Equestria in a conquest attempt? If the lake was uncovered by someone other than Equestrians again, then it could spell trouble for Celestia and her kingdom should it be used for malicious purposes. Who would make enemies with Celestia, though? It doesn't seem likely, but perhaps griffons once fought Equestrians during a part of their history and old tensions will arise again because of a madman.
