I've seen 2 episodes (Cute, but not for me), but I made a name anyway. Huh, I didn't expect something as random as Thunder Chaser. It's sorta shocking...But then again, it's not surprising in the least!

I've seen the show for about 15 minutes. It ain't for me.  wtf? But I have to admit that the animation is pretty good for Flash and humor is quite different then average shows for girls (don't take it seriously).

I should like to warn everyone that Story of the Blanks, although an enjoyable game and a suspenseful story, is also mildly creepy and may cause feelings of uneasiness and paranoia.

It's a really great game. I kept failing horribly at playing it, but I still think it's great.

I'm making a MLP flash game at the moment, I'll post it here when it's done. Got permission from a bunch of people on DA to use their vectors, so it's turning out well. smile

I'm half tempted to watch the show personally, mainly out of curiosity. There seem to be lots of people that are genuine fans of the show. My pony name is apparently Brawny Boulder.

I'm really, really hoping that they only changed it for the iTunes release. The new voice somewhat fits her (sort of), but Rainbow's lines have a completely different delivery now, depriving the scene of the comedic balance it formerly possessed. Fortunately, as it currently stands, the Friendship Express DVD release still has the original version of the scene, as well as the sing-along Zmithy posted as a bonus feature.

So Derpy's original voice was changed because it was actually a 'male voice'? I can accept that. I've always felt bad for Derpy though because she wasn't even supposed to be this 'derp' character. But you know I think the new voice is a good medium between making her full retarded for the sake of humor (as the internet originally interpreted her) and making her just a clumsy and oblivious character. I like that they kept her kooky eyes.

No. The initial fandom interpretation of Derpy was that she was clumsy and oblivious (and also a loving mother). The original speaking role of Derpy was portrayed as clumsy and oblivious. This new not-Derpy is clumsy and oblivious as well, but also sounds like a dumb blonde stereotype. You want to change dialogue? Replace every line by Snips and Snails with the long, drawn-out death rattle of a man suffering from terminal flatulence. Then they might at least be slightly bearable.

The impression I got was that people interpreted her as a retard (in the most non-clinical sense of the word). But yes I totally agree with you about Snips and Snails.

There are a few fan-works creators who interpret her as mentally handicapped, but I've never seen it done with a lack of respect towards individuals with such conditions. More common (outside of the cross-eyed, mischief-making, muffin-loving mother that the majority seem to consider her) is having her completely rational mentally, but suffering from a condition that makes her unable to verbally express herself without uttering random words. One of the most touching fanfics I've ever read involved Derpy (with help from the main cast, of course) fighting to overcome this affliction to win back the custody of her daughter, after she was wrongly removed from her care by a bigoted government bureaucrat.

On the plus side, Big Macintosh is most likely a genius. Who else manages the accounting records for Sweet Apple Acres? Granny Smith probably can't remember things long enough to do it, Apple Bloom is too young, and Applejack is disdainful of all them fancy maths.

Thanks everyone!

I loved the last episode too, especially Angel Bunny's extreme jackassery* "I don't give a flying feather", "I pity the foal!" and the goat eating Pinkie's tail.

*My Little Pony: Violence is Domestic.

I have a feeling this ep is going to end up turned into a Friendship is Witchcraft ep simply on account of the massive amount of douchebag ponies throughout the whole thing. smile

I loved this episode, I actually had to pause it a few times to laugh.

Angel is like an abusive husband to poor Fluttershy, he bitch slapped her! When Fluttershy said "Flying Feather" I was laughing my ass off, and I couldn't help but laugh at Fluttershy beating the crap out of some pony. But, there was some sadness, of course,the way she thought of herself as a monster frown and it was good to see Fluttershy being assertive instead of.....a huge bit....I mean.... agressive!

Great ep. smile

TIME TRAVELLING PONIES!!!

Hell yes! Can't believe they went there. New favourite episode, it was all-out sci-fi. big grin

I loved how future Twilight practically looked like a cyborg, her missing eye was really worrying.

So much awesome in this ep.. Ninja Ponies, Cerberus escaping from the gates of hell (which is apparently an actual physical place in Equestria).

I swear.. the scene with Pinkie Pie as a gypsy... someone on the writing staff like "Friendship is Witchcraft", a lot.

Damn, I love this show. smile

Edit: Tara Strong's Twilight Sparkle rap (animated).

You know if Twilight had just not gone to the past at all she wouldn't have had anything to worry about. I was a little thrown off by the Cerberus part because I was expecting it to go somewhere, hopefully they'll get to that in another episode.

And to quote someone on Youtube: Past Twilight Y U NO SHUT UP?

PS: I'm getting kind of sick of Pinkie Pie, can we PLEASE have some more AppleJack in the next episode? Even the episodes that focus on her don't seem to actually focus on her...

Just how much ice-cream does it take to give a (baby) dragon a stomach ache?

Also, does Twilight's returning Cerberus to the gates of Tartaros and then coming home count as a stealth pun (i.e. going to hell and back)?

Ok....so, if future Twilight warns past Twilight and then past Twilight becomes future Twlight, won't this just happen over and over again and become some sort of infinitive paradox?

^ The loop is indeed recursive, but after infinite iterations it eventually reaches the point where the appearance of, and words spoken by, future Twilight cause past Twilight to repeat the exact steps that turn her into an exact copy of future Twilight a week down the line, thus resolving the time travel paradox and stopping the loop from iterating*.

It is entirely possible that there was a real disaster the first time around** (such as Twilight Sparkle failing to get Cerberus back to the gates of Tartarus in time, or the leaky dam), but that, through the course of multiple iterations of the time loop this was fixed, and as the loop progressed it needed to keep iterating until a point was reached where past Twilight would still end up looking like the first iteration of future Twilight, only without the disaster actually happening. That point was the events displayed in this episode, the final iteration of the time loop.

It is also entirely possible that disasters kept occuring in an effort to fix the timeline during iterations in-between the first and the last, but Twilight kept on stopping them from happening (by being utterly stubborn and OCD and preventing any disaster from happening anywhere in Equestria, which is exactly what she did in this episode), so eventually it had to resort to having her injuries being caused by non-disaster means.

So, yes, it's a potentially infinite loop, but one that has already resolved itself, and this episode represented the final solution where Twilight still gets maimed, but the disaster is prevented. smile

* This is a standard theory as to why time travel paradoxes cannot happen, and a "whatever happened, happened" situation occurs. The infinite loop keeps occuring until it results in a logically-closed situation without any paradox at all, at which point, the 2342634645645th timeline becomes the same as the first, and a merging occurs that stops the loop.

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Novikov_self-consistency_principle

This ep was basically the same thing as "Roswell that ends well" in terms of being a self-fulfilling causality loop.

** If there wasn't an actual disaster, then what reason would there be for her to use the time spell the first time around? It makes sense.

This was a very intelligently-written episode, easily on a par with some of the best that Futurama has offered, IMO. I like how Pinkie Pie mentioned that the time spell can only be used once.. this way it doesn't ruin future episodes with a "well why didn't they just go back in time and fix it" observation from the viewer.

Also, references to the Horsehead Nebula, Greek Myth, technobabble, gypsy ponies, ninja ponies, ninja pirate ponies, and direct Metal Gear Solid references.. so much awesome in the last ep, it is definitely my new favourite. big grin

Also, also, the equations on Twilight Sparkle's blackboard related to time dilation due to relative velocity, which is pretty cool:



I rest my case for this show definitely *not* being "just some dumb kids show" as most people assume. smile

Anywhoo, getting back to the ice-cream…

It occurs to me that, while it probably isn't a reference as such, an ice-cream-covered landscape plus taking the object of one's affections to a building constructed out of food specifically for her shares certain similarities with Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.

Also, I wonder if, deep down, Twilight likes getting into panics. I mean why waste time and energy stressing over an unsatisfactory schedule when you could—oh, I don't know—just get on with redoing it!   roll eyes

And another thing: what's with Spike's black bodysuit? It contours itself to the spikes on his tail but completely flattens out the ones on his head. I mean, what are we to believe, that this is some sort of a… [snort] magic bodysuit or something? Boy, I really hope somebody got fired for that blunder.

Phoenixes are kickass!

Also I find it hard to believe there are A. No female dragons (at least from what we've seen so far) B. No little dragons like Spike and C. That all dragons are mean. There is a lot of potential to learn about dragons here but it's kind of just clumped together in this episode. Hopefully they will explore it more in the future.

I was slightly disappointed that Spike only spent time with the one small group of troublemaking teenagers, although I'm not surprised that there were no females among them. I'm sure Spike will grow into a very mature adult dragon with time, incorporating the very best elements of both dragon and pony culture.

Though one of the teenage dragons asks [Are] you flying on your mommie's back during the migration? so presumably female dragons do exist.

Regarding the message from Celestia that got thrown into the lava, for some reason I was a bit surprised that the teenage dragons can actually read.

And I've got to get my mind out of the gutter because when I first saw this shot:

… my initial reaction was to wonder why they were showing Spike and Twilight in bed together.   no no
