Episode Countdown: S1 Ep4: Applebuck Season Anonymous 402553

Two months before the new season airs. GET HYPE!

Today's episode is Applebuck Season where AJ tries to harvest all the apples in Sweet Apple Acres by herself while helping her friends in Ponyville. Refusing any help, she takes the toll of all that hard labor to the point of affecting her judgement. After several mishaps caused by her, she learns her limits and that it's not bad to accept help once in a while. Written by Amy Keating Rogers.

Twilight Rolled her eyes and shit at fluttershy. yeah she interrupted, but she didn't deserve to be treated like she was an asshole. Sometimes I wonder if Twilight only pretends to be their friends to get what she wants. She didn't give two fucks on how Applejack was going to help anyone else.

Nothing. Ever suffered from sleep deprivation? This episode's depiction of it was perfect.

On the other hand, Flutters has never looked cuter.

Pretty sure this is beating a dead Human but if the apple family were to adopt a Unicorn… Ridiculous Tree bucking would be a thing in the past. Earth Ponies just seem Primitive when we see things like this.

To be fair, that was performed by a scion of pure magical talent. Later on, we see Sparkler struggling to open a peanut butter jar with her magic.

This. Not all unicorns have the same level of magical power. Twilight's a special case since her talent is magic. The Apple family might not have that luck. They'll need to find an unicorn whose ability is levitation.

Hmm I see. Sometimes I tend to overlook details such as these. it makes me wonder just how strong rarity is. In magic duel Twilight was Spinning animals around and it caused her to sweat, and in the "Art of the Dress" Music Video Rarity was spinning small things like ribbons and scissors … ALONG with huge and incredibly heavy things like Pony mannequins above her head and spinning around seemingly not having to put any concentration to it.

Rarity woke up one day with Rainbow dash's job and was using her horn to organize the clouds in the sky. I figured when i see shit like this… Any unicorn could just fuck with the town all day without anyone knowing who it was. Just sitting in there room looking at the sky and being an asshole. However it could've been like Canon for that Episode alone.

>In magic duel Twilight was Spinning animals around and it caused her to sweat…
I could fanwank that by saying that Flutters put her under a good deal of pressure, and the figure-eight shape was harder than simply levitating them, but I'm not under any illusions about it: how difficult a spell seems to be for Twilight is driven by the needs of the episode, and little else.

She teleports effortlessly. That's more impressive than juggling animals in my book.

Both were during musical interludes, and I can't even call the scene in "Magical Mystery Cure" an interlude. That whole episode was a straight-up musical, the only one they've ever done.

I know the conventions of the genre. When the music starts, get ready to flex your suspension of disbelief. Musicals are inherently illogical. In the first place, everyone is singing. The realism of what they're doing takes a back seat to that.

In The Lion King, does the surrealism during "I Just Can't Wait to be King" really fit with the gravity and bleakness of Mufasa's death? No, but they got away with it because it was a musical interlude. You can go full-Busby-Berkeley with that stuff, and traditionally, audiences wouldn't bat an eye.

I say "traditionally" because I've noticed that younger viewers often don't get it. I'm not sure why.

I blame the influence of sci fi. Especially Star Trek as it's creators encouraged the behavour by creating all the nitty gritty stuff from them to analyze.

Star Trek debuted when I was seven years old, I cut my teeth on Heinlein, Asimov, and Clarke, and I still like and understand musicals. It would be easier to blame vidya games, faster editing of films and TV shows, and short attention spans, but that still feels facile.

Her first speaking role, which forever associated her with muffins…and yet was somehow completely overlooked during the Derpygate debates about what her voice should sound like.
