  1. Hello everyone! I just wanted to notify everyone of my name change to avoid confusion. I changed my name to match my name on another MLP forum and the EQD website itself.

    AnalyticalGamer -> EpicEnergy

  2. I love your current name and avatar! Infinite is my favorite Sonic Forces character, and high on the list of my favorite Sonic characters in all.

    Favorite place to be tickled?

    I put "other" because I don't like to be tickled at all. It doesn't bother me too much, but as a natural reflex whenever I get tickled my body throws a fit. I'm kicking my legs and throwing my hands all over the place, so it's best to avoid tickling me unless you want to get bruised up

    Season 8, Episode 12: Marks for Effort

    I think this episode was good. One thing I need to address is Twilight’s apology to the CMCs for punishing them. MLP FiM writer Nicole Dubuc said that Twilight’s action of promoting the CMCs to tutors at the school was enough, since “actions are always stronger than words”. Is the staff member right? This discussion occurred in the Equestria Daily pony community soapbox #102 where ElementOfFaith’s post is featured which is titled “Marks for Effort: Saying “I’m Sorry” in Words or Actions?”. ElementOfFaith disagreed with the staff member (see more in the link at the bottom of this comment). Let me give you my view. Remember, I speak only in the context of this episode. I see the harshness of the punishment, as staying away from the school and its students is a nightmare for the CMCs. I also see that the CMCs were super happy and excited when they received their graduation diplomas and were invited to become tutors at the school. Furthermore, Cozy Glow was the one who apologized instead of Twilight, because it was all Cozy Glow’s fault. Therefore, based on these observations, no apology was needed from Twilight because her punishment on the CMCs was based off Cozy Glow’s behavior. Twilight’s actions, the CMC’s excitement and joy, and Cozy Glow’s apology were sufficient enough, there was no need for Twilight herself to apologize. I agree and disagree with Nicole Dubuc, as Twilight didn’t need to apologize in the current situation, but actions alone were not enough. I shall now address the characters and world building. I liked the comparison made with Twilight’s School of Friendship and Miss Cherilee’s school. I was wondering when distinctions between these two schools would occur. Cozy Glow is a likeable character as of now; however, I found the fact that whatever she does turns out differently in the end to be somewhat mysterious. Her Cutie Mark also stirs up my curiosity. Clearly there is more to her than meets the eye.

    Season 8, Episode 8: The Parent Map

    I have many things to say about this episode. First, the Cutie Map problem is in here. The problem I am referring to is the mysterious attributes of the Cutie Map that remain unexplained. Some say it is arbitrary and like a plot-device. It does seem that way, especially with it being used to summon Sunburst and Starlight and other characters outside of the mane six for no stated reason. I personally wouldn’t jump to that conclusion yet, but I am starting to lean that way as more ponies and creatures are being summoned. Hopefully the developers will explain this incident in future episodes. Now I will shift my focus toward the plot, characters, and moral. The town ponies are well characterized for side characters, and their occupations add to this. I also love that Sunburst’s Mom and Starlight’s Dad are introduced. The parents of the main characters and some side characters are great parts of the entire MLP FiM series. One never would have thought that the parents of the mane six we watched since season 1 and Starlight since season 5 would suddenly become canon, yet here we are with all of them! I digress. Moving on to a different topic, Sunburst and Starlight are portrayed in a negative way in half of this episode, as they are completely oblivious to the obvious fact that the friendship between them and their parents is the real friendship problem; moreover, it is so obvious that even the town ponies see it. Of course, Starlight and Sunburst eventually recognize this and take immediate action, which then portrays them in a positive way. They took responsibility and told their parents about how they really felt about how they were being treated. This all links to the moral. Therefore, in conclusion to this part of my comment, I am content with the way the characters, the plot, and the moral was handled. I would like to add that I am pleased with the world building. We actually got to see where Starlight and Sunburst grew up and know more about their past in Sire’s Hollow. Despite its mediocre appearance at first, this town is great when you look deeper. The walls give you a feeling of security, but it does spark my curiosity as I wonder what purpose these walls serve. This town also gives you two differing sections – the modern and the classic.

    Season 8, Episode 5: Grannies Gone Wild

    This episode was very entertaining! I commend the character building in this episode. Every so often side characters need to get this, as it gives us interesting stories and opens the door for so much potential. The world building is spectacular, since we don’t get to see Los Pegasus very often in episodes; come to think of it, I think this is the second time we saw this place featured in the entire MLP FiM series. The moral is also great and very practical. Aside from all that, the only thing I wasn’t happy with was Rainbow Dash being the ‘party pooper’ and ruining everypony’s fun all because of some silly list, but at the end I can forgive this. All that being said, I would rate this episode 4.4 of 5 stars. Hopefully Trixie’s dad will be featured in one of the future episodes! I find the resemblance hard to deny.

    Season 8, Episode 3: The Maud Couple

    This episode was great and enjoyable, aside from Mudbriar’s mildly irritating shtick. Maud’s stand-up comedy was fantastic, as it had me laughing all the way through; furthermore, it links in with what Maud said in S7 episode 4, providing a natural feel to this episode on Maud’s part. Aside from all that, I found it interesting that Pinkie, who was friends with everypony, who did whatever she could to be friends with Cranky Doodle, did not even try to get along with Mudbriar at first. It took her sisters to get her to apologize and become friends. I think the reason why Pinkie found it so hard to be friends with him because of his technicality combined with his personality in general. Overall, I would rate this episode 3.75/5 stars.
  8. Hey everyone, I’m back! In case you don’t know, I went offline from this forum when the mid-season 8 hiatus began. Near the middle of this hiatus I returned for a day to post when I was going to back online because I received unofficial information that season 8 would air August 4. I said I would return on July 29 if the information was correct; however, since the next season 8 episode will most likely air early on July 20 (according to the updated information on Zap2it and EQD post, links down below), I have decided to return today just to be safe. I won’t be online every day, but my activity will return to normal soon. I am taking a summer class that will end near the end of August, so my activity will be limited. Expect to see many posts and comments, as I need to comment on a few season 8 episode discussions before more come out; moreover, over the hiatus I have accumulated additional thoughts, ideas, and observations I would like to share.

      its been great so far

  9. Update: According to the Equestria Daily website who got the information from Zap2it, the next episode to air will potentially air on August 4, which means that the mid-season hiatus will end earlier than anticipated if this information proves to be correct (this is unofficial as of now). Assuming the earlier date is correct, I will no longer be inactive on this website starting July 29; however, during that time I will be taking an online college course, so my activity will be limited until I complete it. Aside from that, the mid-season hiatus went by really fast for me (even though it is only a 56-day hiatus) and as right now it is already nearing its halfway point which is July 7. I am very excited for the season to resume its normal schedule and I'm already hyped!

    Season 8, Episode 13: The Mean 6

    This episode surprised me in many ways. I thought this episode would be Chrysalis's last, but thankfully it was not. She deserves a 2-part episode since she is the only unreformed villain that has been around since season two. The mean six undoubtedly are the reversed sides of the mane six that the evil Discord manipulated, and it was great to see them return in season 8. What also astonished me was how the tree of harmony defended itself from the attack. Overall, I would consider this episode to be one of the best season 8 has offered so far.
  11. As we all know, the first half of MLP FiM Season 8 is over and the hiatus is beginning. Because of this, I will be entirely inactive starting June 13. Depending on the circumstances, the only reasons I may log in for a brief amount of time would be either to reply to a comment or edit a post. Aside from the previous exceptions, I won't be online until the hiatus is over or until further notice. Have a great summer! /)

    What Is The Best MLP: FIM Song

    Right now the best song in my opinion is the Smile, Smile, Smile song, but that normally changes depending on how I'm feeling because there are soo many other great songs. I would also like to bring up another song. This isn't the best, but it takes first place for most repeated - the MLP FiM theme song. "My little pony, my little pony, what is friendship all about?" "My little pony, my little pony..." you have asked this question over 150x! The funny thing is I never skip it either. My mind normally wonders off though because I've heard it more than 1,000 times.

    What if you could make your own MLP episode?

    I would make an episode that focuses on multiple background ponies and call it "The Secret Lives of Background Ponies". I would keep the size of this episode roughly two and a half hours long per part.

    Season 8, Episode 10: The Break Up Break Down

    I loved this episode! The characters were well handled in my opinion, as well as the world building. I never would have guessed the way ponies did their mail and how their postal office functioned, and it makes me wonder whether this system is exclusively used in Ponyville, and how the other Equestrian postal systems work if it isn't. Aside from that, I also appreciate the morals that were taught and how they were taught. Overall, I think that this episode is a great success, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
