So it looks like Three’s a Crowd isn't Weird Al's episode though it appears he's confirmed to have one.

>January 25 – “Three’s a Crowd”: Twilight is looking forward to some quality bonding time with Princess Cadance. But when a sick friend shows up needing Twilight’s attention, it looks like her plans for a peaceful visit with her sister-in-law will have to be put on hold.

We get the standard Vamp stuff subtly introduced, shades and hats maybe a sensitivity or dislike for the daytime pending on how this is played. Be freaky if that is how this season goes each becoming some kinda pony elder creature. Applejack the Ent, Windego Dash, Pinky Pie heir to Discord/Chaos (Sheogorath), Crystal Entity Rarity. Transition into the next series were grown up Crusaders become the beginning of the next six maybe have them be multi species. The idea of Scoots being paired with a Gryphon I find adorable.

Vampires didn't have reflections because olden tyme mirrors used silver as its reflective surface. Modern day mirrors don't use silver so vampires reflect off of them just fine.

The character is just annoying. End of story. Nothing about him is entertaining or endearing.
>> No. 221775
Why? It's not like it'll affect anything official.
>> No. 221778
Its not that. Its just that objectively speaking as a fan work animation quality aside its seriously not good at the inherent level. The big flaws rely with the protagonist himself.

- Button's cry baby mama's boy whiny personality.
- His irritating voice.

These two things are horrible. It feels like I'm watching Planet Sheen that spun off Jimmy Neutron. Having a main character who better functions as a side character doesn't work at all if the personality and voices are bad which they are. There's nothing endearing about Buttons and he just comes off as annoying. Another example of an annoying protagonist is Chowder from Cartoon Network. Granted at least Buttons is easy on the eyes while Chowder is just some gluttonous fatass. But I digress.

I'm not going to be watching this drivel, I just hope people have better sense than allow themselves to be sheep herd by the visual eye candy.

Haven't seen the episode, but apparently an animator said he's just supposed to be a grumpy pony in general, thus the grumpy cat Cutie Mark. The hat is because everybody was in old fashioned New York clothing.

Why is Bulk Biceps (ugh... what a name) so terrible at flying? He wasn't this terrible at the Wonderbolt Academy. Also, I liked his old voice better.

Wow, the Wonderbolts were conniving jerks.

The episodes was a bit too congratulatory for RD. Everyone was constantly complimenting her on how awesome she was... we get it, she's good at flying. Move on.

Yep... those items that flash rainbow colors are gonna be the 6 keys.
>> No. 222201
Instead of Bulk they should have used Derpy as the terrible third wheel on the team. At least she's canonically a bad flier, unlike Bulk who got into the Wonderbolt Academy. As is, all they did was bring a background pony to the foreground and then did literally nothing with her. What a waste.
>> No. 222202
maybe next we see her she'll be the official Mailmare.
>> No. 222207
Background is perfect for her. As a big fan, I like it most having her being a Waldo in the background. After half a season of no Derpy, what we got was refreshing, though.
I liked how Bulk Biceps seems to have to give it all so he can fly, but I see your point.

My big complaint today was how Spitfire turned into such a bitch. As for RD... I guess that's how it goes for a celebrity. Kinda surprised how the pony crowd seems to have gotten a better memory now.
>> No. 222211
New episode is terrible. Easily the worst so far. The wonder opts are suddenly assholes and there's only 3 when we've seen more than that in several episodes. Biceps can't fly despite flying fine in wonder lots academy. The hundreds of Pegasus from hurricane fluttershy are gone and we get a moral issue that's dash has solved like three times by now. I was half expecting the bolts to be shadow lots in disguise. Was this possibly an excuse just to get dash to stop idolizing them? At least Derpy is back.

That I disagree with and have a headcanon to get around his problem.
Luna and Celestia are a born alicorn because there mother was ascended (maybe even the very first one).

The episode would have been better if Discord didn't get sick for real at the end.

It was Flash's pony form (from Equestria Girls). It ruins the episode for the fanbase because despite Discord stealing the show IMO, people are ass devastated to see a mute cameo that led to nothing.

Because of that cameo, the episode has become taboo to talk about even though it had plenty of substance thanks to yet again Discord being such a great character.

Discord getting physically sick just felt like bad writing. He's a spirit. He shouldn't be able to get sick. He doesn't the body for that kind of ailment. It felt like a reaaaally forced way to humble Discord. It would have been better to let him feel dissatisfied and that's it.
>> No. 222522
> He's a spirit. He shouldn't be able to get sick.

He's a draconequus, a completely made up creature. We know barely anything about them, so I don't see how Discord getting sick is "bad writing".

Narratively speaking, him not knowing what the graboid was and getting sick grounds him from being an almighty god to being more like a demi-god like the alicorns. That's good in my book.

>> No. 222571
Discord always had a spark with Twilight as far as the fanbase was concerned. Discord being so clingy and grabby with Twilight in his debut started it all. Needless to say how Discord wraps himself around Twilight's body (S4 premiere) or the recent dance sequence just ends up being adding more substance and fuel to the fire.

Maybe Chrysalis is impersonating Celestia? And the real Celestia has been captured for a while?

For someone who can apparently manipulate the very sun with her own power she did sort of go down like a chump to that villain.

Or who knows, maybe alot of odd new additions/changes in later series is just because the quality of the writing is declining, it happens to alot of shows.
I couldn't say since I've only watched the odd episode.

Who is that really lame looking villain that came later on that was/is meant to be a big deal? He's some sort of Dark king pony dude, he reminded me of shadow the hedgehog for some reason.
He looked sorta like a total chump compared to previous villains such as Nightmare Moon and Discord.

>> No. 222807
Anyone else notice that these ponies are freaking tall? During Cheese Sandwich's song they showed him singing next to prison inmates during their mug shots. The measure ponies' heights by the foot. The highest number being a 6. So yeah "My little pony" is a misnomer of gigantic proportions. Needless to say Celestia is an Amazon due to her height that dwarfs Luna.

Anyways the episode was kind of weak. The conflict felt like artificial drama and one flaw was TOO many songs. The only good one was the last one since it felt like a rocking tune with a good beat. Oh yeah if this episode's plot was a fanfic, then Cheese Sandwich would have been called a Mary Sue.

PS - Anyone find it weird to see the other main 5 as background dancers for Pinkie Pie at the end? They're not dancers. In fact last week's episode showed Twilight sucking at dancing with Discord for instance.
>> No. 222808
Wait, isn't six feet like a pretty believable size for a small pony? Horses are huge, and I assumed Celestia and the like were supposed to essentially be horses rather than ponies anyway.
>> No. 222814

Unless "feet" in Equestria are measured as the width of hooves, rather than human feet, which would make it much shorter.
>> No. 222816
For those that have seen what /mlp/ is talking about with the recent episode. Apparently some don't like Pinkie Pie having a canon character for shipping bait with. The entire episode was after all focused on the two of them competing and playing off one another and how Pinkie Pie was an inspiration to Cheese Sandwich.

My point is, we all saw this with Twilight and of course next week's episode is more fuel to the fire (Rarity is smitten by a traveling male pony writer who ends up falling for Applejack).

So what exactly makes these elements so.....rile worthy in the fanbase? I don't see people complaining when a male protagonist gets with a love interest or gets chummy with another female (unless said male character is too inadequate for the role he's placed in like Luffy from One Piece to give an example).

I haven't really seen anyone complain about Big Mac and Cheerilee being seen together in backgrounds after the Valentines episode. I figure people who complain are either a) people who hate romance subplots in general or b) people who don't think the MLP writing staff are capable of writing a good romance or c) NOT MAI WAIFU~~~!!!11

>> No. 222820
Cherilee and Big Mac are minor characters so whatever antics they get into isn't consequential in the fans' point of view. Its when MAIN characters get involved that the fireworks go off.

IMO I think male fans of anything ideally see any available female as "conquer" worthy even if its in say a videogame. They don't mind when they are in control of a male character in game or focus strictly on a male protagonist getting his woman because they closely get under the male character's skin to understand his dilemmas and plights. Rarely do they get mad at a male for getting with a woman (the protagonist would need to be controversial in some way).

When a videogame or TV series however focuses on female main characters a male viewer/gamer is not in control. They see a woman choosing to be with another guy. I think its all primitive instincts taking place here. And of course straight guys aren't attracted to other males, so that's a bigger turn off. That's all I got to say.
>> No. 222822
Awesome episode, one of the best of the season so far. Just the songs would make it worth it, but it was pretty damn fun, even if a bit simple.

>In fact last week's episode showed Twilight sucking at dancing with Discord for instance.
Twi wasn't dancing WITH Discord, though. He was sweeping her around.

Also romance often sends things downhill, if it wasn't the focus of the show to begin with.
>> No. 222825
>Also romance often sends things downhill, if it wasn't the focus of the show to begin with.

In which case, it probably wasn't worth watching to begin with.

But in all seriousness, thinking back there's a reason why single females are more marketable. Even old animes like Sailormoon did this, sex sells and mentally creating an illusion sells a product. Is it any surprise that it is taboo for Japanese singing idols to reveal that they have boyfriends? Business suits know they cannot sell an image of a woman who comes off as being "used goods."

Its the same reason many male fans hate Flash Sentry. The irony is that unless he seriously sucked ass as a character, if Flash Sentry was the main central character of the entire FIM G4 gen of MLP with careful crafting and Twilight was the minor character instead, there wouldn't be many complaints.

This episode was full to the brim with songs but it never felt too much. It was a much better paced musical episode than Magical Mystery Cure.

>> No. 222975
Maybe the Elements of Harmony get restored is my guess (you know status quo). Personally I wouldn't mind if ALL of them became alicorns. It would send the message loud and clear that the show is ultimately trying to sell merchandise above anything else. It would be the perfect way to let viewers who aren't the intended demographic know "There's the door, don't let it hit you on the way out."
>> No. 222976
That's been obvious since the "Ponies BUT IN HIGH SCHOOL" movie
>> No. 222977
I get a feeling not only the unintended original audience would get that "Fuck you".
Also, I don't think they're big on that message (though it may seem so sometimes), what with the whole thing they just made around Derpy etc.
>> No. 222980
Yeah but try it in main show itself to drive the knife into the heart of older demographics.

What do you mean?

As far as the rainbow keyhole lock, this whole season feels like it needed a filler gimmick to justify getting made. Hence getting rid of the elements and in the finale restoring them for the sake status quo is god. That's just my guess and the show feels like its running on fumes. The substantial fanbase has been culled and it feels like the viral meme phase for this show is finished as well.
>> No. 222989
What I meant is first, they don't want to lose all the accidental demographic. It's money and they like it. It's not like they're making tons of merchandise of Vinyl Scratch because little girls loved her in all the 3 seconds or so she had on season 1. Derpy's around a lot lately, at least partially because a bunch of grown-ups fucking love her and are willing to buy blind bags, Funko figures, bath robes, you name it. Probably same with Dr Whooves (heck how many kids would even catch the reference), and a bunch of background characters getting spotlight.

Second, I get the feeling even the original target audience could have a "Fucking seriously?!" reaction to all the mane six turning into alicorns. If we're talking something like a temporary power-up, sure, whatever, but permanently changing characters like that is bound to get hate from fans of all ages.

As for the last paragraph, I couldn't disagree more. This season, at least for now, seems to have improved overall over the last one, and while the fandom might have diminished (wish it had been better culled, actually), I'm not sure it was ever about a "viral meme" status.

Who knows, maybe next episode things start to go really downhill, but looks pretty clear they don't wanna lose the audience. There's an Equestria Girls sequel on the way, as well as another season of the show at least, and a fuckton of merchandise on the way.

And for the record, I wouldn't mind the Elements of Harmony getting fixed, but I don't see that happening. Looks like there are alternate power-ups on the way already.
>> No. 222993
It works for Twilight because she was being groomed as Celestia's student and probably as her successor. Everyone else becoming alicorns doesn't make sense.
>> No. 222994
hahaha. People have been predicting the end of the "pony fad" since season 2. I think this season is the best so far, even better than 2, so I'm pretty happy about it.
>> No. 223051

So that's Twilight, Pinkie Pie, and now Rarity. Man these single females are dropping like flies. The fact that they outright stated "Rarity you got a crush" and she says that it goes even beyond that (her altar of worship being similar to Helga's from Hey Arnold) does not bode well for male fans of Rarity.

I wonder how many guys drop female starring shows because they don't like their snowflake single female, claimed by another guy in-universe. That was one of the reasons Gilmore Girls turned to shit in the eyes of male viewers (if you can believe the show had such viewers). Rory dumping an average decent joe guy for a bad boy asshole and then losing her virginity to spoiled rich douchebag raped the minds of male viewers.
>> No. 223058
>Gilmore Girls
I know for me it wasn't even a waifu thing. It just turned from a fast-talk comedy show into a BORING teen relationship soap opera crap. I'm not sure why someone would watch a show like that to hear about someone losing their virginity.

And now that you mention, her thing for the first guy might have been cute at least, dumping him for any other would affect it negatively.

She's always been the most prone to go crazy about stallions/golddigger. Someone in the comments pointed about about how calm Spike is, wonder if they'll just ignore his crush from before.

While there was some good chemistry between her and Cheese Sandwich, there wasn't any explicit shipping.
Methinks you're just wishing too hard to watch said reactions while eating your popcorn.
>> No. 223082

New preview. So Rarity does have the same heart shaped eyes business as Spike does for her and this writer pony douche is indeed romantically infatuated with Applejack (kind of disgusting to show her muddy, sweaty, and eating disgustingly). The single women aren't staying single.

The episode was....mediocre. Seriously all around unentertaining meh. The only good bits were Spike breaking the fourth wall when Rarity said she's frustrated at seeing someone she likes liking someone else. That and the scene with Twilight forcing Rarity to meet the guy.

All around boring, would not ever consider rewatching. In fact this episode feels to be just what Hasbro possibly intended MLP to be. Purely girly nonsense.

Still gotta rewatch it, but the resolution felt kinda rushed I guess. Still loved to see Rarity and AJ bickering just like old times. Also, St Germain's acting for Rarity seemed to have stolen the spotlight a lot.

So here's a thought. If the mane 6 all became alicorns, they could each hold the following dominions...

Twilight - magic

Rarity - Creativity (it was her original elemet)
Rainbow Dash - the sky
Applejack - agriculture
Pinkie Pie - emotional stability

If they did this I wouldn't mind Hasbro making them all alicorns.
