  2. So that just happened. And mother of mercy those wings are freakishly large.... Discuss. EDIT: Purposing this thread for general Season 6 spoiler discussion, since it's already tagged to Tartarus and back.
  3. Seems the UK will be airing the rest of Season 6 next week. Including the finale. Spoilers are going to be everywhere. It's going to be really hard to go into the finale blind for the US airing, unless I avoid all sections of the 'Net where pony will be discussed.
  4. Some questions about said title: Is Season 6 objectively the worst in the show, as well as all of TV? Has every episode in Season 6,all the way back to season 1 been trash in disguise of a jewel? Is MLP really going to hell/losing quality? Or has it already done that when the first second of the show even first aired on a TV screen? I like every episode thus far, but even though I opinions are not directed at me, I feel attacked. Am I wrong in liking, to be clear, The Crystalling, Gift of the Maud Pie, On Your Marks, Gauntlet of Fire, No Second Prances, Newbie Dash, Hearth's Warming Tale, Saddle Row Review, AJ's Day Off? I haven't watched the others in the later episodes now because all I'll get are accusations that "I'm deluded and insane and stupid and short sighted and not critical to like these episodes for these reasons." From the comments of Equestria Daily and MLPForums, is everyone right in saying MLP is going to hell and I am wrong in thinking that it's not? I have very low esteem and everyone wants me to stay down because me sticking up for myself is only going to get myself into more hurt and trouble and that's all there ever will be. All the pessimism has gotten to me and now I'm convinced that this show has done the complete opposite of its original intention. I am so angry at the world, I want to cry every night even though I don't at all and I feel like doing horrible things to everyone, especially the fans, the voice actresses, the old and new writers, the staff, Lauren Faust, Bonnie Zacherle and everyone else whom I thought I liked. I've come to believe that no friendship exists at all and that I've been lying to myself. I've become convinced that friendship is not magic. I have nothing but sadness, anger and hate in my heart and I am blaming everyone else as the reason. Friendship never was, never is, and never will be magic. From previous topic: After all these barrages of extreme spitting on the episodes in the first half of Season 6, it's left me traumatized because of all the negativity and i haven't watched the other episodes yet because I'm still too scared to even see that the rest will just be hate and flak again and I'm too helpless to do anything about it. I don't want your answers to be based on opinions. No matter the case or circumstances, all you ever say is based on subjectivity and I can't accept that at all. I want only one answer. I demand absolute, undeniable, irrefutable truth. Nothing else.
  5. Throughout Season Six, Starlight Glimmer has gained fans and haters, but both can agree on the inconsistency of her appearances. Sometimes she's the star of an episode, other times it's easy to forget that she's joined the "main" cast at all. What are your thoughts on this? Where do you think she disappears to, what do you think should have been done with her in the episodes where she simply disappears and do you think we should be seeing more of her at all?
  6. I don't know about anyone else, but am I the only one that isn't really intrigued by the remaining episodes in the season 6? I was hyped about it as first but now some of the episodes just seem a little... Meh. Don't get me wrong I'll still watch the episode but I won't really be hyped about it.

    About analyzing

    My First Topic I have been watching the show since 2012. As I've heard more about the fandom, I started to believe that because they are analyzing the show, I had this logic that those who nitpick the show and discover the flaws are the ones who are right and that they say that no one should watch the show because it is actually, objectively a horrible show. Whereas for me, I believe that people like me who passively enjoy the show and see it through an innocent, childlike lens are the ones in the wrong because I would be labeled as a brainless drone and that I have no free will when it comes to being in this fandom. I always believed that my own analyzing skills regarding tv shows are garbage and if that's the case, people tell me that I should not enjoy anything at all if I don't analyze it thoroughly. But I can't help it. I've always seen things, including MLP in a lighthearted manner, in isolation. I get the notion that I shouldn't enjoy any form of media because they imperfect. Am I wrong for viewing the show at all? Especially in a childlike manner?
  8. A really big weakness in the first four-plus seasons was Spike's characterization. Examples include turning him into an unfunny victim of comedy "because Spikabuse is so funny"; derailing him into an greedy, dumb, and/or antagonistic shell of himself; shifting (all of) the blame to him; and being the star of some awful episodes when he's really good. When he's good, it's normally when he's a secondary character. Pre-S6, his best roles were Lesson Zero and EQG1. Yet, when he's the star, something happens for reasons I don't know. It's like they didn't know what to do with him and write an episode while tagging his name on the paper. Examples include: Owl's Well: Make Spike feel jealous even though he has very good reasons to believe he's being replaced. Dragon Quest: His best characterization as a mane character, yet it fails for unfortunate implications and usage of horrible stereotypes. Spike at Your Service: Disregarding past continuity to make him incapable of doing the simplest jobs. Equestria Games: Halfway through, he turns into an idiot. Princess Spike: The quintessential awful Spike episode. Blatant contrivances, idiot!Spike, Spike's greed blamed for the problems when it's a non sequitur, and an ending with major sexist implications. If there was an episode where I'd say the show jumped the shark, this was it. But ever since Princess Spike, his characterization significantly improved in a few ways: Characterization consistency. There's been one or two episodes where he was hit with the buttmonkey status, notably in Newbie Dash as the tertiary comic relief. Other than that, there's been way more effort into giving him the treatment he deserves. Amending Fences and The Cutie Re-Mark in season five are two obvious examples. But season six is the most obvious. I'll get to that point in a bit. He actually feels like a character. The Mane Six are all very likable, well-rounded, believable, and relatable. Unfortunately, Spike was the odd one out with the most inconsistency of the seven (now eight with Starlight). Today, his best qualities are not only brought to the forefront. Now he has flaws that make sense. It's like they take the best of Spike (A Dog & Pony Show, Lesson Zero, Dragon Quest, EQG1 & RR, Simple Ways, and Castle Sweet Castle) and develop him through there. The roles given to him feel like he belongs. He spoke not much in Amending Fences, but he has reason to be there, and his role in giving Moondancer the picture in the frame brought that hanging plot closure. In The Crystalling, he and Starlight began a really good friendship; they understand each other and want to make things right. Spike wants to fulfill Twilight's mission of Starlight understanding the Magic of Friendship, while Starlight wants to patch things up with Sunburst. In the end, they figure out their way of solving her friendship problem. But then come his two episodes, Gauntlet of Fire and The Times They Are a Changeling. GoF reopened a hanging plot from DQ, and Lewis and Songco provided some level of closure. Not all dragons are sexist bullies. He regains respect for his race and understands them more. Ember is an excellent character. By winning the gauntlet and passing the scepter to Ember, he gains an ally in the Dragon Kingdom. It's his best strengths-focused characterization. Times gives us his most balanced characterization yet: flawed and prone to making mistakes without making him OOC, very responsible, and willing to sacrifice his reputation to do what he believes is right. Him befriending a race with a notorious history is something he can relate to. Thorax wants to understand the Magic of Friendship, and Spike bridges the gap to help him. Character development from past episodes sticks, and both episodes are for the better. This is his Wonderbolts Academy. Here's my mini-review for it. I don't have any idea why that's the case. I have two theories: Complaints of his characterization in seasons three and four impacts the rest of season five and this season. As written before, his low-quality episodes have always been a very sore spot for FIM. Following Equestria Games (which was sharply criticized for many reasons, one being Spike's characterization), DHX went back to take a look at what they can do better for him. Unfortunately, Princess Spike was too far in development to make changes, but they seem like they realize they can write him better. Since PS, DHX has put more and more effort into his character, and my theory is the criticisms helped give Spike some much-needed direction. Josh Haber becomes the editor for season six: Aside from McCarthy, he gets Spike. He writes Spike better than almost anyone on the team, and him being there gives the writers a direction for the little dragon. Haber becoming the editor might be the best thing to happen to Spike. Regardless how you feel about season six, there's one thing it does so well: Spike is getting the treatment he rightfully deserves. I don't know if DHX'll return to their old habits, but if they continue this current treatment, it'll be easily his best season yet. What do you think of Spike's characterization post-Princess Spike? Have you, too, noticed improvement? What theories can you come up for his characterization turnaround?
  9. I think it's crazy how much rarity has shown up this season, she went from being in a few episodes to making an appearance in almost every episode in season 6, but don't you think it's time to turn it down a notch?
