Snobbier than Rarity.

I'm not sure how excited I am over the upcoming episode.
Scared would be a more appropriate term since they've been doing their best to get us uninterested in the show.

Boast Busters was okay, I do think the 2nd trixie episode was actually better but that may be an unpopular opinion.

I'm lukewarm toward this episode. I felt they made a steady climb upwards from the pilot through "Griffon the Brush-Off," dipped here, and resumed the climb with "Dragonshy."

I just don't care for Trixie, but at least I liked this better than "Magic Duel." Your mileage may vary.

This is one of my least favorite episodes of the entire show. It just feels so…wrong compared to everything else in the season. I was never nearly as much of a fan of Trixie as everyone else in the fandom seems to be either, but my dislike for her is fairly seperate from the main reasons why I dislike this episode.

I too think that Magic Duel was better but mostly because I wanted to see Trixie challenge Twilight Sparkle again. It was obvious that she would win in this round and it was Twi's turn to surpass herself. Surprisingly, Twilight made the comeback with wits rather than magic power. That's another thing that made the episode interesting.

It seems that Trixie's a hit or miss character in the fandom. Either people love her of loathe her.

I'm not a avid fan of her but I do wish to see more development.

wait, what?

I think so. The about of arguing over Trixie's role and the mane casts actions proves Boast Busters was at least handled poorly.

If you look at Meghan McCarthy's tweets or just her attitude in general, she pretty clearly despises the fandom, it shows in how she interacts with it and well, how they've been dumbing down the show. Did I mention Equestria girls? It just feels like they're tired of the porn and the general attitude of the fandom so they're reacting with that.
I mean it's either on purpose or Hasbro and Meghan really, really are that thoughtless that they're throwing away the largest audience they've ever had.

that's entirely wrong

you're taking it personally

I mean there's some hinting that Hasbro is affecting the show by pushing characters and certain plot elements to sell more merchandise, but they don't hate us because of the porn. no one at Hasbro or Studio B could care less.

I'm not exactly all that personal about the show in general really.
I don't mean to say that just to contradict you., I understand where you're coming from, but for example I was one of those who shrugged at alicorn twilight. I don't necessarily care all that much about it, it just seems to be the direction they're taking to me.
I wonder if they're very happy about the google image results for any pony containing suggestive images (when not straight up porn).

I could be wrong, just my opinion.

Why does everybody think Hasbro and McCarthy are on the same mindset? Like one is automatically responsible with the other?

What if maybe Hasbro just wanted to sell toys and Megan couldn't do shit about it, so she tried to rationalize giving twilight wings the best way she could?

Maybe Megan is not apart of some magical Hasbro Clan of destruction but she is just doing her job?

Why is it always "Megan wrote the episode it's both her fault and hasbro, she is definitely in league with them!"

Because they got Lauren out of the way when she was getting extremely involved with fan-made projects, and hired her instead?

The way I heard it, Lauren left because Hasbro was meddling too much in the creative vision for the show itself. I doubt her association with fan projects was the reason for her departure, or at least the primary one.

Bingo.

Bingo.

Why the lazy one-word replies? Because writing more is not worth the effort. I've learned not to bother trying to disabuse fans like Tom of their wacky notions. I might as well go argue with creationists or somethin'.

You're right. My apologies. You pushed two of my buttons (maybe my only two buttons) in a row: the "Meghan is Evil/A Liar/Ruining the Show" button and the "All Fluttershy Episodes Are the Same" button.

No, and no. Those misconceptions didn't bother me at first, but their being part of the hivemind back on /mlp/ eventually did.

I love ya Anon-sama but goddamn am I tired of talking about Fluttershy. Seems every thread finds it's way back to her these days…

They weren't at one time, but I think being on /mlp/ for so long made me a little crazy.

>>404672

I kind of am too. I don't think I bring her up more than I do the others, and maybe less. My knee jerks when other people do, though.

About that comment on me, did I ever say anything thoughtlessly to you in the past?

Who wouldn't turn a little crazy being in /mlp/ for so long especially on these times.

Nope, not at all. You just pushed a couple of my buttons at the same time, both of them only tonight.

Thank God for the Scruffening. It woke me up. I finally went, "What the fuck am I doing here?" and I haven't been back since.

I like the episode and have nothing to contribute to the conversation because at this point it has all been said. Am I the only one who prefers Magical Duel over Boast Busters?

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.
