Not a whole lot of talk lately. What did people think of the Month of Rarity and the Friendship Games?
ID: dccbe No.1039
month of rarity:>first one was good>second was good, but not that good>last one was rarijack, and had a great lesson, but I wasn't much for the execution
Friendship Games>the final confrontation was a 100% asspull - there was no hints that shit like that would happen, makes little to no sense- why magical tentacles? Wut? no explanation>but the rest of the movie was awesome>it was delightfully sunhine shimmer-centric
It was good - a nice follow up to the two others, and helped establish the EQG setting as more of an independent setting that doesn't need to get its plot imported from Equestria
ID: 5d2fc No.1041
I don't know If I'm the only one on here that watches this series, but it's nice to see the creator improving with his animation skills. Especially being able to get out one a month reliably now.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECYWEoehxKw

Hey, remember that episode where we established their special tallents? Fuck that!
ID: 419af No.1065
I just realized, if they've just thrown all the buildup out the window and the girls' special talent all along was simply being the damn CMC, why didn't they get their marks a long time ago?
ID: d6ead No.1067
Each of the marks is like 3 marks in one. It's pretty neat.
ID: d6ead No.1070
That doesn't make sense. The talents that they've built up are referenced in the cutie marks.
ID: bbaa1 No.1071
Okay, I haven't seen the episode, but just from all the grumbling back and forth about it, let's try this just from an objective appraisal of events:
They each do have talents that they're good at. But what they're best at is being the CMC. Stuff like Sweetie's singing is something she's good at and enjoys, same for Applebloom building stuff and Scootaloo's athletic ability. But none of those things define them the way that being the CMC does. It seems like special talents aren't just something ponies are really good at, but are a central tenant of their life. And while the three of them have other skills, their lives sort of revolve around each other.

Doesn't matter, they're so far removed there might as well not be any relation between them.
ID: e89aa No.1090
Even if Pinkie really was a blood relation (which the episode left ambiguous) it's like >>1089
said, they're ridiculously distant.
Unless you're just enormously paranoid that being with someone that you could even theoretically trace a family tie to would turn you into a backwoods-dwelling hick with flippers for hands, I think everyone's safe on that account.
ID: 6c434 No.1094
I'm reminded of a story presented on the Red Chair on the Graham Norton show. One of the guests recounted how she met a really cute guy in a bar, one thing led to another and they got to making out. Later, the woman went to a family reunion and found out the guy was a cousin.
ID: fb82a No.1095
Exactly. If Pinkie even is related at all, she's still so far removed that no one even knew any connection existed.

Good season finally - the very end was a tad too redeemy but overall it was very good
Like the Futurama anthology episodes - it was a cool "What if" pair of episodes. What if Nightmore Moon had won, what if Sombre had won, and so on.
ID: 4baf1 No.1131
>>1126Honestly, I think the ending was the most ridiculously forced, rushed redemption since the first Equestria Girls. "Oh, so you decided friendship as a concept is bullshit, went full psycho, stole ponies' cutie marks, set up your own creepy communist brainwashing village, tried to straight-up kill me when my friends and I foiled your plans, stalked us for the better part of a year AND almost destroyed space and time, wanting to ensure that the entirety of existence suffers because you hate me, all because your friend got a cutie mark before you and left to get training? D'aww, no worries, all is forgiven! You're one of our best friends now, join us in song! FRIENDS CAN CHANGE THE WORLD~!"I'll say this though, it certainly cements the fact that Starlight is supposed to be the ultimate stab at SJWs–everything she did was all because she felt wronged in some way by a male pony.
ID: 33d06 No.1138
>>1131>Starlight is supposed to be the ultimate stab at SJWs
This has been plain fucking obvious since her first appearance on the show. If anything, the finale just gives an explanation for why
she did all that horrible shit.

If the new season doesn't begin with Starlight Glimmer revealing she was faking her way-too-quick side-changing and laughably petty backstory that just makes her even more of a blatant evil, I'll be so disappointed in the writers. Cause think about it, that would be an actual brilliant twist.
I'd accept that or a sacrificing of the mutant alicorn baby.
ID: 0d485 No.1499
That baby probably has a higher death toll than every other villain on the show combined.
ID: 6831c No.1538
So the latest episode seems to be the writers realising that they fucked up giving the cmc their cutie marks last season. It's like, "crap, we have nothing left for these characters to do together"
ID: d6ead No.1539
They couldn't keep dragging on the CMCs getting their marks forever though.
ID: 5d2fc No.1541
Yeah, but honestly it was the only thing keeping them friends. What else did they have in common?
Hating Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon? Can't do that anymore, she's nice now.

Helping others with their cutie mark anxiety.
ID: e6a9f No.1548
They could've at least given them the cutie marks/destined talents they were being built up to have before that damn episode. Now they're doomed to forever stay together helping other ponies get their cutie marks.
That's it. For eternity, their special talent is simply being the CMC. Which is kinda depressing, really.
ID: 587f7 No.1568

Mid-season hiatus confirmed to start June 11.
How many people even still watch this anyway? There's practically no discussion anymore.
ID: 5995b No.1799
I still watch, and there's plenty of activity on the various fan sites, but the show has probably hit its peak and begun to decline. It's a combination of several factors, including the emergence of other shows like Steven Universe (this effectively killed the Discorderly Conduct blog, as both of the creators abandoned it in favor of SU stuff), fans losing interest and moving on, hiatuses that last far too long, and a general decline in the quality of the writing. The show looks as good as it ever has, but the lessons seem increasingly shallow or nonsensical, some episodes are clearly written solely to promote new toys, and some plotlines are dropped completely, never to be discussed again.
The ride's not over yet, by any means, but I've been getting the feeling that this might be the last "good" season (thanks to some significant character development and the upcoming movie) before things start to really go downhill.
ID: 5d2fc No.1800
The latest episodes have been pretty disappointing. Like, they're ending all the character's…goals, I guess. Without them growing or learning what they need to to accomplish those goals.
ID: 587f7 No.1804
I fell behind awhile back and just haven't ever managed to keep up.
ID: 720c9 No.1806
I stopped watching as soon as I realized most of this season will consist of trying to force us to see Starlight as the most adorable sweetheart woobie anyone ever played the world's smallest violin for who's instantly adored by all and deserves all your money–LOVE, we mean love!

Wow, that feels almost surreal to see.
