I know I'm probably in the minority here, but I like Gilda and I too found Pinkie really annoying when I first started watching.

 

It would be cool to see what happened to her...or at the very least see how she and Dash became friends.

Gilda is annoying, and poor Fluttershy! I've always liked her, sucks to see her cry like that.

Ah, Gilda, where to start. Ya know, I tried to love and tolerate her for part of the episode, I really did, much like Pinkie tried. Then this happened:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3sHlZl9X6aM

This episode is aright with me. The beginning really made me laugh how Pinkie is chasing Rainbow Dash around.

 

Only thing I would hate is when Gilda made Fluttershy cry. Nopony or griffon makes Fluttershy cry without me hating them. And the way Gilda acts is the kind of people I hate.

While Pinkie is my favourite of the mane 6, I have to admit that this episode does not get high marks from me. It's not an episode I hate but it has a couple of things I find weak. I found Gilda to be a pretty cliched antagonist and too cruel for my liking. If there was an explanation as to why she was such a jerk, I might have actually liked her.

 

I didn't think Twilight writing the friendship report made much sense since she only looked at the situation from Pinkie and Rainbow's side and not Gilda's and the report seemed a bit biased since she did not know Gilda personally.

 

If Gilda returns in a future episode, I would not be against it but I would not look forward to it either.

In rewatching Griffon the Brush Off the other day I have to say that Rainbow Dash clearly wasn't that truthful about all the pranks being random. We don't know how many there were in total, but we do see four, and only the first one seemed to actually be random,which was the hot sauce in the lemon drops.

 

When she was screaming about it being hot RD pointed her in the direction of the dribble glass. Beyond that the only other two pranks we see were CLEARLY meant for Gilda. It's her party, so who else was going to open HER presents, which had the fake rattlesnake prank, and again, HER party, so who else was going to be blowing out the candles on the cake which had the relighting birthday candles? So at the very least half of the pranks we saw WERE intentionally meant for Gilda.

Hello, @Never2muchpinkie. I have merged your topic about your opinions involving Rainbow Dash's pranks in Griffon the Brush Off into the official discussion topic for that episode. This is due to the fact that what you posted is more a commentary on the episode than a subject that could result in a substantial, separate discussion.

I did not like the episode that much. The episode focused on rainbow dash and pinkie pie who I can find a bit annoying. Still I loved Fluttershy in this episode!

I really think that Gilda is rather narrow-minded when it comes to picking friends and might have came off as fake in the beginning scene when Rainbow Dash and Gilda recite a play they worked on since their childhood. I think it also comes to show that people who come off as fake later on are the ones more likely to be not good friends.

Pinkie Pie was gold in this one XD I found her interactions with Gilda at the welcoming party to be hilarious :lol:

"I have my eye on you" Gilda could've been written a bit better, at least for the show's standards. I mean, yeah, she's intended to be a jerk, but she comes off as trying way too hard at being "cool." It's not a bad episode as it has a handful of funny moments, courtesy of Pinkie Pie. Pinkie Physics™ is one of the show's best running gags, IMO.

I found this to be an average episode. It was about Gilda the Griffon visiting Rainbow Dash. My highlight was the part where Rainbow tells Gilda off and to get new friends.

Yes, average episode. I didn't like Gilda, and overall it wasn't really funny (except some Pinkie Pie moments)...

However, I really liked the first part, before Gilda appeared. :)

I liked the episode, because of pinkie pies trolling on Gilda and that she found constantly new ways to catch up with gilda and rainbow dash.  :lol:

I find it a little bit strange, that rainbow dash didnt anything to help pinkie or just hasnt seen, that gilda sabotaged pinkie pie very often.

I really didnt like gilda because i can relate to that situation, that one of your friends had a very best friend that doesnt like you and wants that you disappear, so i was very happy after gilda disappeared.  :P

I just watched this episode again and it was still very good.

 

Love how Pinkie and Rainbow started to bond again. I didn't like how Gilda made Fluttershy cry. That was so low. All in all this episode showed you didn't have to be "Mean Cool" to be average cool lol.

It has a good lesson, but I'm not super into episodes that only show the bad side of a character.  I agree with everyone who's said they wish we had seen why Gilda was like that.  I think the only thing I loved about this one was the last few seconds when Celestia has her invisible ink mixed up with her regular ink.  XD  I wonder who she pranks with it.

The plot was pretty weird but at least it showed viewers why Rainbow Dash has the element of loyalty: she defended her Ponyville friends while Gilda couldn't handle them.

Gilda had an enormous chance of making new friends, fitting in a new area, and staying friends with Rainbow Dash, but she failed massively by allowing her anger to get the best out of her and not regretting what she did. Looks like she should have taken anger management classes.

This is an incredible episode meant to show without a doubt that no matter what other ponies may think, and even when she has every reason to, Pinkie Pie never succumbs to jealousy or bitterness or hatred. And that's why Pinkie Pride is an abomination.
