    Another MLP:FIM review thread

    Take what I'm going to say with a grain of salt because not only I know there are fine people in this forum that like it, but I also dislike it on personal level. Equestria Girls only exists because Hasbro wanted a cartoon to occupy that niche. They leeched off their IP since it was already famous and the thing clung to MLP like a tumor. Maybe it's because I'm too enamored with the concept that an author should be impassioned with their creation and also it's actual owner, but the whole idea gives me the creeps. I'm probably too harsh on it, though, but when I first watched it, I thought it was the most bland waste I'd ever seen, that it made poor use of our beloved characters and amounted to an official fanfiction. Which is ironic, since I love alternate universe fanfiction. The only good things about it were the things that were already great in the main series, such as the music and voice acting. One final reason is that when it was first announced, I thought it was actually going to be about ponies, that it was going to show more of their world and build on it. I thought it was an opportunity to properly do one of these 'epic' season opener and finale stories. Finally... Princess Celestia, the ruler of a nation for a millennium, wise and caring, one who literally made the sun move in the sky, reduced to a school principal. Fuck that. If there ever was one thing that showed how wrong these people think of her as a character, it had to be that. Thank Sheshat for fanfictions and people that actually care about these characters.

    To me, personally, it would be because I think that Equestria Girls is one of the biggest problems with the franchise and I couldn't care less if all involved died in a fire. I might've been interested in Celestia's involvement if I thought that the producers gave two fucks about her or anything she could do. But I can't see their Celestia having any more character in her other than, of course, forgiving Sunset Glimmer, I mean, Sunset Shimmer.

    Didn't watch it.

    Absolutely not. What I meant is that I'm tired of complaining about it. In my opinion, a little, but not enough. Not to mention that a couple of episodes that turned the students into a mass of the same character over and over, the school was barely relevant other than serving as backdrop for a story or two. Honestly, most of the season was somewhat forgettable to me.

    This is why I defend primary and secondary canons. This time the writers are making a point of referencing the movie. Likely because their overlords wanted to make sure kiddies knew the movie was a thing, but whatever. The EEA... It was likely one of the most asinine things out of this cartoon. I understand the need for it to exist, and to be able to do things no non-government institution should be able to do, but with the anemic payoff for all the shenanigans around the school and students... It's a shame all around. I'm not even going to comment on Celestia... It's beating a dead horse by now. No. It wasn't. The problem with it, as in with most things MLP tried to do that had a inch of depth, it went nowhere, became a mess and the producers pretended they told a story.
  6. Yes. I agree it would be a stretch, unless they prepare for it along the season. I guess we'll see. I hope not, personally. This is another reason why I agree that the previous is a stretch. Chrysalis deserves something better. Wouldn't surprise me.
  7. Personally, I doubt it. The production staff knows that this will be the final season. It's going to be something involving Celestia and Twilight, and she is going to 'leave' so that Twilight can take her place. I wouldn't put it above them doing the same with luna and Starlight Glimmer.

    Season 8, Episodes 25 & 26: School Raze: Parts I & II

    Typical MLP season finale... Boring. Obnoxious... We've had a resentful ruler, a spirit of chaos, an evil emotional vampire queen, a magic eating monster, an enslaving tyrant from the past, an actual cult leader and all sorts of monsters as antagonists in this cartoon. This time, it's a child dreaming of... What else? Ruling the world. Ugh... This is why I still say that Nightmare Moon was the best villain in this cartoon. She wanted to be loved, recognized. Cozy Glow was goddamn cringe worth. She even had a crown made with adhesive tape. In fact, i don't know if it was she or Neighsay that was worse. God, what a waste. I hate it when the cartoon does this. It's too worried trying to be all serious and self-important, with these big stakes, but doesn't have the grandiose to feel like it's something actually serious. It's a child! I hope next season we learn that she was Chrysalis that wanted to be sent to Tartarus, or something. Other than that, it wasn't that bad, for a season finale. I feel like the Mane Six were completely pointless, and so was everything else, other than explaining how the hell that kid managed to do what she did. Including the students. The whole mess could've been fixed by the Tree itself. The cartoon really needs to stop with these plots that require characters to be yanked out of the way so that the story can happen. I remember when people used to say the Elements of Harmony where a big deus ex machina, when they actually weren't, but that is exactly what the writer did with the tree here. Since there was that episode about how it tested the students for their friendship, I suppose the idea is that they helped. At least I got the feeling that the school was fulfilling it's job of teaching friendship... But the whole thing felt somewhat rushed and unfocused. I don't know... Maybe I need to see it again... It tried to wrap up the season, and it kinda did, but could've done it better.

    Season 8, Episode 24: Father Knows Beast

    Of course we wouldn't get a real story about Spike's egg... Or course... Haven't we established already that dragons are jerks and that Spike was better with the ponies? And then, instead of getting an interesting story, we got an episode about an obvious liar using Spike for his gain. Disappointing.

    Season 8, Episode 23: Sounds of Silence

    Kirin: The Episode! We exist, now buy our shit! Back to you normal ponying. Actually, it was quite fun to watch, and I think this might have been the best song in the season. I also liked the worldbuilding a lot. This is usually the best part of map episodes, but I'm usually disappointed with a couple of things. Ponies always act like they are the saviors when they go to other kingdoms. It's annoying, and the episode never call them on that. Another thing is that it seems that if people weren't stupid in the place they went to, the whole problem would've been solved. While the first is somewhat present, the second isn't. So, it was a good episode, as far as I'm concerned.

    Season 8, Episode 22: What Lies Beneath

    And I thought the series pilot was bad... This should've been a pilot for a new spin-off series and then given more time for each of the individual stories to develop and connect more naturally. Rather than hammering that they really are friends with an iron mallet. Which is annoying as fuck, because I actually liked the idea of the Tree.

    Season 8, Episode 21: A Rockhoof and a Hard Place

    Boring. Stupid. Poor use of a character. Do you mean to tell me that there are no places in EQUESTRIA where Rockhoof's hero routine wouldn't be useful? I did like the way the other Pillars were handled, however. I think that the problem I have with this episode isn't so much that Rockhoof couldn't fit, like the episode wanted to say. He's just an idiot.

    Season 8, Episode 19: On the Road to Friendship

    I'm trying to decide which one of those three was more of a jerk, and I really can't. Really fun episode, though.

    Season 8, Episode 18: Yakity-Sax

    Well, for a while there, I feared this would be Pinkie's version of The Mysterious Mare Do Well. Boy, am I glad It's not what happened. This is was very entertaining and fun to watch. I particularly like the scene with Gummy, and for once, this is one episode I couldn't see the whole plot from the start. So, it's another point I give it. But, man... It's soul-crushing to see Pinkie like that. Also, I'm so glad Twilight has a brain again. What a breath of fresh air Twilight was in this episode. Finally, it was so full of funny things, like the scene with Pinkie asking another ice cream, and I really like this little tidbit about the yaks. I call this one of my favorites in the season. It has 'that' MLP:FIM magic.
