I think it's just as good as it was back in Season One, though maybe a little bit different now. It's still about friendship and it's surprisingly smart for a childrens' show.

How about you? Even if you despise everything about it, I'd like to know.

Tecnically Filli Vanilli is in the second half of Season 4.

And I didn't hate the second half of Season 4. It was weaker than the first, sure, but it still had some pretty strong episodes like Maud Pie, It Ain't Easy Being Breezies, Inspiration Manifestation, and my all time favorite episode, 123 Testing Testing.

Sure, it also was mostly duds, but even half of those duds had things in it that I really liked, like the jokes in Somepony to Watch Over Me, the visuals of For Whom the Sweetie Belle Toils and Spike's characterization in Equestria Games. Really, the only two episodes that I found completely lacking anything meaty in the second part are Trade Ya and Leap of Faith. And it's really just my opinion, since you liked the former.

>Damn, I never can figure out why people hated simple ways, I LOVED that episode.
I'm still having trouble comprehending what even happened in that episode.

Like, what's the guy's deal? Is he condescendingly interested in the working pony aesthetic thing, and then develops a crush on Applejack merely because she represent it? Or does he just start out thinking he's interested in the working pony aesthetic, but really just finds Applejack attractive and keeps on going with the farm thing to impress her? The whole thing feels recursive.

So Rarity decides to act like a dumbass for the guy, which she absolutely would not do for Prince Blueblood. And she was so pissed about the phrase "looked a little country" in SaE. And Applejack goes, "Yeah, I'm gonna get on stage and have a pissing match with Rarity, that'll sort things out!" It felt so bizarre, like it wasn't even connected to the rest of the plot.

I don't really see how you're confused by the intent of the episode here, because it seems pretty blunt and obvious.

Trenderhoof is a shallow moron. He is fixated on an ideal while utterly ignoring the actual reality of the situation. Rarity, in her desperation to be acknowledged by someone so massively famous and influential, makes the exact same mistake.

Then AJ cheerfully mocks Rarity's own shallow nonsense in the most blatant way possible because she knows full well it'll push all her buttons and this ultimately drives Rarity so nutty she breaks character.

The IQ of Dog (from CatDog) is 193,

The IQ of Corneil the Dog (from Corneil & Bernie) is 250,

Hello, my name is Walter O'Brien and I have the fourth-highest IQ ever recorded at 197. Einstein's was 160. Mark Collins, Corneil the Dog, and Ami Mizuno all have higher IQs than I do, and because I'm such a goddamn genius, I can use deductive reasoning to figure out that Twilight Sparkle's IQ is no higher than 196.

Just rewatched Apple Family Reunion. I guess I didn't notice this the first time I watched it because I was too focused on the shooting stars but...

Is this the only crescent moon in the whole show? Was Luna feeling experimental that night? Was Celestia drunk and got her angles wrong?

Rookie animator? Animator experimenting? DRUNK animator?

Of course, since ponies have nothing to do with Earth horses except for a slight resemblance (they even have opposable hooves, for Celestia's sake), it could just be that MLP:FIM pony genetics have an offshoot of mule-like ears that have nothing to do with actually having any genetic relation at all.

Overall a very good episode. I like that explored spike's status as a dragon, and it was a nice Rarity/spike episode.

Not an incredible episode, more "Decent but not Great", but still very glad it exists and would gladly watch if it was showing.
I do kind of hope that Spike's Normal adult form is a bit better looking though, this spike looks like he's wearing eyeshadow. (and the Fatty adult spike from CMC isn't much better)

If nothing else, I will always remember that Scene at the end where the two are falling and Rarity puts her hoof to his mouth.

This was kind of an old news, but now that I think about it.

What if alien anon is right and for season 6 and EQG 4 we get alien ponies?

I mean there is a lot of fantasie which use space, like Warcraft and even talking use meteorites to make evil swords

This post is relevant to the 1 year anniversary of Power Ponies.

I'm pretty sure most bronies remember Flutterhulk. Everyone and their mother talked about this scene, sometimes at the expense of the rest of the episode; it was considered to be the defining moment of Power Ponies (and possibly even Season 4).

And yet, the quantity of fanart that features Flutterhulk comes up short. In Deviantart, one would only come up with several hundred results, and even then many of the searches are about Flutterhulk fanfiction that predate Power Ponies. Yes, one may search "Saddle Rager" instead and get 250-300 results, but many of the searches chiefly concern untransformed Flutterhulk.

According to polls like these, Flutterhulk doesn't do amazingly well in favorite Fluttershy Form polls. I once composed a poll based on the Roundstable poll with a voter turnout of 23 people; not a SINGLE soul voted for Flutterhulk.

I am simply confused. Are Flutterhulk fans a vocal minority? Or perhaps Flutterhulk's popularity takes another form? Anything is possible.

Does anybody out there read Polish? There's this Polish priest, Slawomir Kostrzewa, who has been pounding his pulpit denouncing various kiddie-culture items as satanic, including Legos and MLP. I suspect it's just the usual (c)rap about occultism and magic, but I'd like to read the details concerning ponies - - and all the stories and articles I can find online about his anti-pony witch hunt are in Polish (except for a few in Chinese and Czech). I don't read these languages. If you do, please google <"slawomir kostrzewa" "my little pony" -lego> and report back. Anything interesting?

Huh? Meaning what? That we shouldn't be concerned with cartoons when there's a war going on somewhere?

This sort of perpetual bad conscience - - the feeling that no one should allow themselves to be happy so long as someone, somewhere, is wretched - - is one of the least attractive aspects of the liberal sensibility.

And some people might be right to be concerned about these cartoons and those who watch them.

There is nothing really occult about MLP,if some priest in Poland can't figure it out.......then he might simply be latching on to a popular phenomenon.

anyway, a /pony/ topic.

so alot of people discard EqG and The comics from the show.

the Starswirl the bearded in the movie have no mustage, and in the comics it does, outside it being different color too.

so it means the comics are really fuck up on this department, because no matter how much i hate EqG, they are more canon than the comics, at least with where they are going with a dessign.

In Rainbow Rocks, the Mane Six are all on the same team, yet they end up separated by their differences. So, what if there were an election to determine the Student Body President?

Could MLP, especially FIM, handle CGI well?

A lot of franchises - Franklin, Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake, Powerpuff Girls, Batman, Arthur, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, etc - have had at least one cgi entry lately. I am pretty certain a future gen will be CGI but that's not anytime soon.

What if Fim 1.0 ended but the gen persisted and they made a new cartoon, either a sequel or with new characters, but it was CGI
