That there can be said to be kinky ponies at all is so very wrong.

Dear Princess Celestia:

I find that whenever I watch more than one episode of MLP:FM in one sitting, I have a mighty hard time not talking like Apple Jack for the rest of the night. So here I am catching up on season one, and golly it's hard not to talk in a southern drawl.

I read that in ApplaJack's voice, so I guess you win.  Or did I read in Twilightsparkles' voice at the beginning?  That's the voice I use in my head most of the time anymore.

Has anyone else been watching Friendship is Witchcraft?  I can't tell because most of this thread doesn't seem to be actual conversation about the ponies.  The new FiW is about robots disguised as ponies btw.  Cutie Mark Inquisition: program initiation. shifty

So far it is obvious that Derpy is the mother of both Dinky and Sparkler. Is this another relative, or is Derpy also a time traveller?

I'll bet time traveler. tongue

Xanfor, I've been thinking of you lately. I just finished watching the available MLP episodes a couple days ago, and after seeing Sisterhooves Social, I'm starting to like Rarity a bit more. Also, I've had Art of the Dress stuck in my head for days.

We don't. We allow him to disapprove, wipe the dust from our feet, and continue cuddling Rainbow Dash as Jesus taught us.

Really, it ought to be the blue lesbian pony he's hugging, to show that Jesus loves everybody. No matter how annoying. The blue lesbian pony is pretty annoying.

I just watched the episode where Fluttershy watches SweetieBell, Scootaloo, and Apple Blossom. I love Fluttershy! She's so awesome!

No one knows, huh?

Oh well, how about this one:

I noticed that the song from this week's episode (May the Best Pet Win) was recorded with a real orchestra.* Are they also using an orchestra to do other music for the show, e.g. incidental music and other songs like At the Gala?

If so I wonder if they took a leaf out of (the original run of) Futurama's book, or are lots of children's cortoons scored with live performances these days?

* Or at least that's how it sounds to me.

It certainly sounds as though they're using a real orchestra, particularly for the incidental music. In fact, the background score is quickly becoming one of my favorite things about the show. Thanks to it, the argument between Rarity and Sweetie Belle in Sisterhooves Social is one of the most dramatic scenes I've ever witnessed on television in my life.

As for your initial question, I don't believe they've released official or full versions of any song, with the exception of the earlier, demo version of A Hop, Skip, and Jump.

Rainbow Dash is such a jerk in this new episode, I felt so bad for the rejected animals (personally I would have picked the bat). However I loved that little Tortuous, and his little helicopter at the end was so freaking adorable!

[Alright, that's enough of that. This sketch is getting too silly!]



Given that neither Angel, Winona or any of the other pet-like creatures can talk why does Spike assume that Owlowiscious can? Is it just a Rule of Funny situation?

I don't think Spike was actually expecting a reply, but was just trying to be courteous. The fact that Owlowiscious replied using an actual word caused him to assume the owl could speak, leading to further hilarious misunderstandings.

Concerning the latest episode: those high society Canterlot ponies have no appreciation for national heroes, do they? Or perhaps only Fancy Pants does, and intervened to save the rest from embarrassing themselves.

I just see them as being particularly insular and self-absorbed. They no more know who defeated Discord than they know who the coach/trainer of the Wonderbolts is.

I haven't seen anyone else mention it on the net yet but I thought that Fancypants had a lot in common with Mr Darcy, especially in the way he was portrayed to the audience.

I was surprised that Rarity
but maybe I'm too bound to certain story telling conventions.

I'm surprised that Rarity didn't receive any comeuppance for her actions, but in a way, I like what happened much better. Much like Rainbow Dash's jerkiness, something you normally wouldn't find in a children's show, it is an element of reality that such a medium would often be reluctant to address. It could have come off as lazy or enforcing a wrong message, but instead it did the opposite. Rarity discovered the right thing to do not through negative repercussions from doing the wrong thing, but by being forced to acknowledge the fact that she knew quite well what the right thing was from the very beginning, and finally choosing to do it.

A lot of lessons are already learned. The hard part is choosing to accept that you already have the answer.

I think episodes about Rainbow Dash would end a lot faster if the group just said, "You're being an asshole again." Then RD would be like, "Oops, I forgot about the lesson I learned the last time I was an asshole." The End.

I liked Mare Do'well, I totally guessed the reveal of her actual identity. I want more Fluttershy episodes!

Does Spike's gem aging process actually remove any imperfections and/or flaws from the gem stone?  If so then surely he and Rarity could go into business together.

I finally watched the first 2 eps to see what all the fuss is about.

Dammit, animation quality (I work as a flash animator so it's quite interesting to me), pacing, timing everything about the show is spot on. Awesome little show that has just the right level of quirkiness to appeal. Quite a few laughs in there too... I loved the "it was under eeeeeee" line, and the disgusted reactions of the other ponies when one of them started singing. This is the perfect kinda thing to have on in the background while I'm drawing since I don't need to pay a lot of attention to it.

How the hell am I going to justify watching this as a 25-year old guy?

Keeping a "stash" of My Little Pony videos that get watched in secret when no-one's around? Ohjeez...

Y'all have tickled my curiosity regarding this show.  At first I thought you were 100% tongue-in-cheek, but now I'm not so sure.  Mayhaps I shall investigate and see what all the interest is about.

^ As it happens, I have a good idea for a highly annoying MLP animation... will post it in the fanart section when it's done. smile

I'm 10 episodes in at the moment, episodes 9 and 10 are awesome (bride gossip and parasprites), fluttershy's "curse" was really funny, along with the whole intro scene to that ep, and I love how the parasprites ep ended..


It's great how Twilight Sparkle provides the perspective of a "normal" character constantly going "wtf?" at all the other ponies, it really is a free ticket for the show to do whatever it wants and then make the humour out of lampshading it. I think some of the show's popularity among adult geeks is down to her being a character they can relate to.

Personally I like how, for once, the really intelligent character is separate from the socially-introverted character. It's very rare that kids TV doesn't simply combine the two into the usual stereotype and call it quits.

Liking the consistent continuity and logic too. E.g. when Fluttershy is scared of the dragon, the other ponies mention the big scary manticore she faced down in a previous ep and an explanation is given. Same goes for the AppleJack episodes where the obvious "why doesn't her massive family that we saw in ep 1 help out?" solution gets addressed.

I'm also liking the constant horse-related puns far more than I should.
