That was an interesting episode. On par for a CMC episode in terms of craziness, and the song was adorable!

I didn't notice any difference, but I'm bad with voices.

I liked this one a lot--given the issues a lot of kids have with bullying, it had a really good message (tell a trusted adult if you're being bullied), so that made me happy. I loved the song, too, though I thought it went on a bit too long (the song, I mean).

Most of the characters have separate speech and singing actors, with the exception of Rainbow Dash (her VA is also a vocalist).

Unless you mean overall, in which case maybe?

I believe Sweetie belle's VA is the one who does not sing though, and Apple bloom's VA is the one who sings for both of the characters. :V

They are child voice actors playing the roles so it will be natural that they will sound different as the show progresses. I haven't noticed any change in Applebloom's voice so far though.

Yeah- I was kind of dreading it once I noticed it was a CMC episode, but the music totally made up for it.

Spoilerish and rantish post go!
Note: Spoilers do not work super well in my layout, so take care!




Spoiler:
So this episode is something "many" fans have been wanting to see since the end of season 1, and it's certainly and episode I did NOT want to be made at all.

Now that might sound weird, after all, the episode was not all that terrible. (At least I did not think so.) But rather, the whole concept behind it is what irks. First of all it shows that Trixie variety show (EQD) has way, WAY, too much power. There certainly are Trixie fans, no doubt, but it's from what I have seen (in my community interaction) to be a minority rather then a majority. So when doing an episode to cater to fans they most certainly must have based it off the shifted (IMO) image of the fanbase that is presented there.

Next I find the whole concept behind the episode to be bad. (Though we did get quite a bit more of fluff from Celestia's stuff and all, that should make lore fags happy!) The reason being is that it seemingly builds straight from fanon. I don't mind building from fanon on minor things, such as giving Derpy the name Derpy or such. But here we have a character who pretty much lacked a whole lot of character in the episode she was in in season 1. And the new parts of her character being shown here falls in exactly with the common fanon; I see this as a problem.

An example of this being done better is in the case of Luna. (And no, I'm not saying this due to being a Luna fan.) She did not get any character what-so-ever in season 1, yet she got quite a bit of fan love. In season 2 when they decided to bring her back, they took the smart route and actually looked into what would be a logical personality and such. The old speech thing alone is brilliant to show that she is from another age, as well as how she acts towards he subjects. Which are two things that would have been completely missed if they based her of the fanon interpretation!

Truely, this could be a coincident that the new parts of Trixies canon personality matches the fanon one, but considering this is pretty much an episode to cater towards "bronies" I don't think it is.

Last but not least, I see it as a major problem that they want to cater to the fans to this extent at all! I think that's literally a road down towards ruining the show. Fans are dumb, always have been, always will be! They ran their own thing in season 1 and mostly all of 2 and that's the reason why people love it! If you suddenly start making content specific to please the loud fans then you're bound to run into problems down the line. :/


But yeah, sorry for the rant. The fact that I rant is for me a proof that I genuinely care greatly for the show. :V

I actually really loved this episode, best ep of season 3 so far IMO. I can see your points, but I'm inclined to disagree--it was executed in a fun enough manner that the episode was still highly enjoyable.

Yeah sorry if I come off as a big negative. The episode itself on it's own (disregarding the meaning of it, sorta?) is actually decent. I certainly don't think it's the best so far this season (That goes to the two parter! :3 ) but it's not a bad episode. Fluttershy and Zecora really stole the spotlight in my book though, but maybe that was intended?

You know, thinking about it, Zecora who was just a rather minior character, have really been fleshed out into quite a bit more over time!

Fluttershy was great in this episode! Possibly the best part, really.

I wonder if they are still going with the story that

, because it would really be interesting to see how they are going to explore that now that RD's and Scott's relationship has gotten stronger.

So yeah, the new episode:

Spoiler:

I was thinking about halfway through that Lightning Dust was supposed to be a parody of Mary Sues. But it went deeper with the entire idea that Lightning Dust was simply being a show-off to grab attention. Sure, especially if you're a stunt flying crew, you still shouldn't be over-exerting yourself like that. Safety still exists.

But yeah, it was pretty good, especially the animation for the flying scenes. I wasn't expecting Spitfire to suddenly become a brash drill instructor, though. Also, those glasses looked cool. But thenagain, what is it with this show and cool eyewear lately?

I honestly had always thought Spitfire was a dude.

Either way, it was a really strong episode! It's great that Rainbow Dash has been getting more screentime lately.

So, another new episode has passed. And an Applejack episode, no less!

Spoiler:
Can't think of much to say about this one. Pretty much the entire episode is full of the Apple family doing Apple family stuff. It was nice to see Babs back. That was probably the fastest return of a minor character we've seen in a while. We also finally got an Applejack song! Too bad the lyrics were... something. At least it's catchy.

Also, they added a new creature to the universe: fruit bats! As in bats that are made of fruit! They're so adorable! ^o^



Oh, and AJ's parents confirmed dead. Not that it's really a plot point or anything, but still.

Yep, that'd be the Twilight Princess. Not much else to say about it from my end, except mayyybe they'll be able to make the situation not go downhill faster than a cheese wheel on a glacial mountain?

Well we haven't discussed any of the most recent episodes, have we? I'll say S3E10 "KeepCalm" kind of threw be around a bit. Having not seen any preview description of it, before the prologue (suggest a word) I was hoping that they wouldn't suddenly start going the wrong way with the episode, and then after the prologue I was kind of like, "Well, I guess this counts as going the wrong way...right? Going straight through the floor counts as the wrong way, doesn't it?" F-Zero X announcer, never silenced.
(Oh don't get me wrong, the episode was fine, I had just took a week to watch it and spent much longer than I should have thinking about ways it could have gone that happened to be going in directions that weren't the floor)
