Episode Countdown:S1 Ep15: Feeling Pinkie Keen Colshy!x04iLINER6 408907[View]

49 days until the new season of MLP!

Today on the countdown it's an episode known to be controversial in the fandom, Feeling Pinkie Keen, written by Dave Polsky.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgnrSbLXJOo

Twilight tries to find a logical explanation for Pinkie's "Pinkie Sense" which somehow seem to predict certain future events; not even Pinkie herself can explain them. After numerous failed experiments, and a risky encounter with a hydra, she learns that even if cannot understand them, she should always trust her friend's senses.

Episode Countdown: S1 Ep14: Suited for Success Colshy!x04iLINER6 408379[View]

We're 50 days away from the new season of MLP.

Today's episode is Suited for Success written by Charlotte Fullerton.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XN0OwIUXgPc

In this episode, Rarity makes her friends their attire for the upcoming Grand Galloping Gala. Unable to impress them, she tries to make them exactly as they want (even if it violates all the laws of fashion). Her friends soon realize that that wasn't the best idea after ruining Rarity's career at a fashion show and in front of Canterlot's famous fashion hotshot, Hoity Toity with their 'perfected' dresses. They redeem by making Rarity's dress and putting a second show with the original dresses; Twilight and her friends learn that they shouldn't look at a gift horse in the mouth.

Quick Question Heavy Mole 408114[View]

/pony/, if you were in a position to describe the show to a disinterested coworker or a friend's young child, would you liken the ponies more to donkeys or to llamas?

Here's a picture for reference, in case you have forgotten what they look like.

Me, personally–and I encourage the most impartial assessment of this–but for myself, I think the long neck and enchanting gaze give it the aspect of a llama. Just saying. I mean, there are even already donkeys in the show. But you can form your own judgment.

mines of course andrea libman. aside for the obvious reason why i think she's best voice actress, there are others.

id have to say it's pretty impressive that she can change her from high pitch along with different tones when she is voicing for pinkie. but, it's also impressive she can almost sound like a day and night difference when voicing for for flutters.

51 days until the new season of MLP!

Yesterday's thread was skipped due to I was away all day so today we're gonna feature 2 episodes!

Call of the Cutie, written by Megan McCarthy, where Applebloom tries (and fails) to get her cutie mark so she can fit with her peers but ends up finding two other blank flanks, Scoots and Sweetie Belle, whom she befriends and thus the Cutie Mark Crusaders is born!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQ21J8DZRmU

Fall Weather Friends, by Amy Keating Rogers, where AJ and RD endlessly compete to prove who's the best pony (and who has the worst sportmanship) in the Iron Pony Competition and The Running of the Leaves Competition.

S1: Green Isn't Your Color. Love the conflict, Rarity's self-aware jealousy, Photo Finish, the "forever" gag… such a solid episode.
…or maybe The Best Night Ever, for six simultaneous stories and all that climactic anticlimax and introducing us to two Wonderbolts.

S2: Hurricane Fluttershy. Flight training. Rainbow being awesome and straining to be supportive. Fancy pegasus weatherwork. Science and measurables. Fluttershy's pain and justifications for her weakness. Final triumph without making Flutters into supermare.

S3: Magical Mystery Cure. Musiclicious, and ♥ Rarity's weather patterns. Twilight's ascension, which comes when she is ready but before she thinks she is – story-wise, the perfect time. The coronation scene is shitty, though.

That's the whole thing, though. Dash made a decision about who she wanted to associate with, based on character, rather than the impression of "coolness" (remember when she wanted to avoid Pinkie at the beginning of the episode?). "Loyalty" isn't about being fatuous to how people behave–it's about recognizing good qualities in others, despite outward appearances and show (the name "Gilda" is probably derived from "gilded", the same way Trixie's name gives us a clue about her character).

I thought it was a peak episode. If I changed anything at all, it would just be minor tweaks to the dialogue. I'd want to get away from leaving the impression that this was "A Very Special Anti-Smoking Episode of My Little Pony," but you have to reach to even think the writer meant to imply that. It isn't overt.

Also, I might make Fluttershy's dialogue while chewing out the dragon a little less… dippy. That scene failed to show why the dragon was intimidated. However, those are minor quibbles. I thought "Dragonshy" was darn near perfect.

Equestria girls was well handled though. Better then many episodes.
They proved they could still write the characters (something I'd been wondering about since season two), and they made the story as good as it could be given… circumstances. Some of it could even have improved the pilot.

I think Megan hates having to juggle keeping Hasbro happy and her career with keeping us happy, and I bet she resents being held responsible for all Hasbro's bullshit.

I'm sure she does. She has Hasbro's retarded executives on one side, demanding what they think are small changes to stories and characters — but they aren't; they domino through the entire series, invalidating plots, flattening characters, etc. — and retarded fans on the other side blaming her, calling her a liar and so on. I do not envy her position.

When Lauren Faust showed up on /mlp/ right before the Scruffening, some of the anons tried to slam Meghan. Lauren let them know in no uncertain terms how funny and talented she thought Meghan is. Something I've noticed about Lauren: she always says what she thinks, but she goes about it diplomatically. If she'd held Meghan responsible for MLP:FiM's missteps, she would have found a way to say it without sounding bitchy, but she implied no such thing. Quite the opposite. There is no doubt in my mind that she knows what Meghan is up against.

That was "Putting Your Hoof Down." Merriwether Williams wrote the screenplay from a story treatment by Charlotte Fullerton. I assume it would have dug deeper if Charlotte had stayed to finish it. Merriwether doesn't do deep.

I'm not sure where that perception came from, but as I said elsewhere, it's part of the hivemind back on /mlp/ and seems to have spread like cancer. I've seen it said so much, I eventually wrote a detailed post refuting it and saved it. I got tired of repeating myself.

Here it is again, along with the comment that induced me to write it:

Some anon on /mlp/ said:

I'm not sure where that perception came from. I guess it's just one of those things that somebody said once here on /mlp/, then everyone else started parroting it without a second's thought. Let's see, shall we?

You're right in many points. Fluttershy was an interesting character up until S2. She has suffered a case of flanderization in S3 like RD had during most of S2. We can say that KCAFO gave her some gasp of air but still it feels like she has gone 2 steps back for every step forward she gave prior to S3, and yes, a blame it mostly on Magic Duel. She has not been consistent in everything she has learned and my biggest concern is that she'll be flanderized further in S4 into an exaggeration of what she was before.

Anonymous 404686

>>404679
>Fluttershy was an interesting character up until S2.
She only had two episodes. "Putting Your Hoof Down" wasn't as bad as most of Merriwether's dreck, but it was still Merriwether. "Hurricane Fluttershy" was good.

>She has suffered a case of flanderization in S3 like RD had during most of S2.

She did in "Magic Duel," but she was largely ignored. Honestly, I think Pinkie, Rarity, and Dash have suffered worse overall. Dash has been redeemed somewhat, but they still left her vulnerable side laying back on the road after S1, and she's less interesting to me because of it.

Season Four is make-it-or-break-it time for sure.

Time and again I've heard film students advise against learning too much about movie-making if you still want to enjoy movies, since once you start getting the hang of how things are done and why, movies lose all their magic for you. I've seen similar happen as I learned about other artforms and get what the students meant. You trade the ability to simply enjoy something for ability to appreciate how an artist made use of certain techniques and tricks to achieve his goal.

I enjoy animation, and I think I'd prefer to remain blissfully ignorant of too much of the technical aspects so I can still lose myself in their worlds. That shapes how I approach and analyze things…as well as whether I'm more likely to enjoy a show by how I remember it from years ago vs seeing it again. Those godawful post-Blanc WB revival toons drove that last bit home pretty hard, though at the time I thought I was watching the same toons as when I was a kid and couldn't grasp why they'd seem so terrible as an adult other than nostalgia. I know better now, but still sort of instinctively resist going back to relive old toons. Fortunately new toons come out almost constantly, and some are even worth watching. Pone was a pretty good find, for instance.

Practically everything went to shit when Hanna Barbera came out on the scene and the hippies killed slapstick.

They'll get over it. I did. You learn to build a wall between the technical stuff and the appreciation stuff. In a sense, it's similar to how doctors (and artists too — I've had many hours of life drawing classes) hardly notice nudity in a professional context, but are still aroused by it in a sexual context.

You might have a bumpy road while you're learning, but you get beyond it. Animators still enjoy animation. Filmmakers watch other people's films. Writers read other authors' books. In fact, one has to.

I assumed he meant to.

No one here actually believes this show has consistently good morals, right? We're all here because the show is well animated, cute, and funny, but "teaching kids good morals" does not belong on this list of praises.

Even ignoring the obvious examples of FPK and MMDW, there are plenty more examples of botched morals.

-Ticket Master: Why would you send the tickets back? Obviously, the rational thing to do is to sit down as a group and discuss who has the best reasons to go to. "SAME FOR ALL! SAME SAME SAME!"

-One bad apple - "If you're being bullied, come up with some stupid convoluted plan that hinges on an assumption that was already proven false earlier in the episode(that bab's would give two shits about their stupid float)". Considering how confusing the topic of bullying can be to a young person, muddying the waters with bullshit is not a good way to go.

Super Speedy etc - It's okay to give yourself an advantage if you're losing

MMC - All the pony races have their advantages(but just kidding, wings are kick ass and make you better)

If it's done in entertainment, then take it as ENTERTAINMENT. ….so, please don't, take it, any other way.

It's actually done as an ad, so should we take it as an ad?
