Title: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Post by: zeldafan42 on 25 July, 2011, 12:25:52 am
BP, Y U NO HAVE MY LITTLE PONY TOPIC?

Because seriously, this show is....AWESOME!

I know what you guys are probably thinking.

"My Little Pony? Are you serious ZF? That stuff is for girls! It's probably stupid and girly and stuff!"

But, here's the thing. It's not.

THIS SHOW IS AMAZING!

It's surprisingly incredibly well written, with interesting characters, interesting plots, and beautiful animation.

So my challenge to all of you guys is this. Give it a try. Watch the first couple of episodes. Episodes 1 and 2 are a two-parter that introduces you to the main ponies, and while they're good, I do think you should also watch one of the later episodes as well, because after the more adventure driven first two episodes, the later ones shift to more of a slice of life style pacing. So you'll get a better idea of the tone of the series in general from the later episodes.

So come on guys. Give it a try. Because I'd like to be able to talk about ponies with someone other than my girlfriend.

I'd make jokes about Bronies, but it seriously just flies outside of my radar. As in, my failure to watch it relates less to it's quality or lack thereof and more to the fact that I really just can't be bothered to care.

Anyways, Derpy Hooves.

Hmm, well, I suppose I can respect that opinion. At least you're not deriding it without even watching it.

And you're right. This thread needs moar Derpy Hooves.

If you seriously want this to be an active topic, try to bring in DB. Otherwise it's just going to be more pointless **** from me and whoever else happens to drop by.

Well, it's 2 AM for me right now, I figured I'd just post this topic, leave it up for a while, then wait and see.

Then after a while, bump it and try to advertise.

I'm hoping to convert at least some of the members of BP into Bronies.

<_< Thankfully, we are not 4chan, and most of us have better taste than that.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=terStOkhnPQ&NR=1

As we all know, I'm not the girliest girl out there, but....despite this being a song about making dresses....I love it! It's catchy and has a good beat, both this version and the original from the show.
Rarity is my least favorite of the main 6, but that doesn't mean I don't like her. I just don't like her as much as the others.
Still, I rather enjoyed that episode.

Looks cool. Still, that video would have been 20% cooler if it had some Rainbow Dash.

Sooooooooo...........back on topic.

My girlfriend and I are slowly catching up on the first season. She has her DVR set to record the episodes every time one she hasn't already recorded pops up. So far we've watched nine of them. We're doing it this way just because she prefers watching it on her TV rather than on YouTube.

The show continues to impress me by quite simply being good. Lauren Faust and the other writers are my personal heroes. As a future writer myself, I'm very impressed by their ability to take something that could have easily been turned into a half-assed 30 minute commercial and make a legitimately watchable television show.

Part of the reason I watched this show was because of the Internet hype. But the main reason I continue to watch is because I've found myself really enjoying everything this show is doing, and doing so well.



Sooo...........who's everyponies' favorite pony?
I think mine is obvious....but for fun, I'll rank the main 6 from my favorite to my least favorite.

1. Rainbow Dash
2. Twilight Sparkle
3. Fluttershy
4. Pinkie Pie
5. Applejack
6. Rarity

This person has the entire first season on YouTube!
And because Hasbro makes more money from the MLP toys than they do from the show, they don't hunt down people who post episodes on YouTube like other companies do.

Oh, well, i missed this. X3 

...I should have been the one to make it. <_<

B-but anyways, no, let's be happy. X3  I watched the first season some months ago, and just loved it. :3  And I am looking forward to the new season as well; not, like, on the edge of my seat, but excited enough. :3

Just a very well made show, with good writing, likable characters, and damn cuteness. X3

I would rank, but I am a bit to tired to (hooray for being tired at night!), but maybe tomorrow.  I am not a fan of ranking, though... I like them all. X3

Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Post by: Gargravarr on 07 September, 2011, 08:43:56 am
I'm not hating on her, I just don't like her as much as the others. She's actually probably tied with Rainbow Dash for 5th place.


Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

Fair enough; just seems like her and Applejack go unappreciated a lot. :(


Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

Another Rarity episode? Okay, so technically she shared the first one with Sweetie Belle, but now that's already two each for Rarity and Rainbow Dash this season. Where's the love for Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie and Applejack? Oh well... It was at least a decent episode anyway.

And, even though she had two episodes in a row, it was nice to see Rainbow Dash finally learning some humility during them. It probably won't last, but still...

Meh, the latest episode was okay. But can that please be it for the Rainbow Dash episodes this season, it being the third? Rarity and Applejack have had two each (if you count Sisterhooves Special and Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000, respectively), Twilight and Pinkie Pie have only had one each, and Fluttershy hasn't had any at all.


Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Post by: Davidk92 on 05 February, 2012, 12:02:46 pm
According to tv tropes, the next three episodes will be based on (in order): the Cutie Mark Crusaders, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy.


Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

Here's food for thought: Scootaloo didn't sing during that scene. But think back to Show Stoppers, where it was established that she's not a very good singer...


Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Post by: Gargravarr on 12 February, 2012, 01:37:05 pm
Yeah, she only had a couple of speaking bits, IIRC. Like when she points out one of the stallions has a girlfriend already. Similarly, Sweetie Belle sings the bulk of the song and it's been established that she's the best singer of the CMCs and it could well be her hidden talent.

Speaking of whom, I also notice that Scootaloo is the only CMC that hasn't had her own episode yet. Though given her obsession with Rainbow Dash, an episode focused on her might just end up annoying me...

And angry I did get.


Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

Was it that bad?


Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Post by: I_like_Nonon on 12 February, 2012, 04:20:10 pm
It's not as bad as it could have been, but it's not very good (knowing the original version, of course). Voices lack a bit of emotion, and are generally weird. Applejack, who IIRC has one of, if not the deepest voice of the mane 6, sounds like an 8 year old. And Pinkie Pie, who has one of the lighter voices, has the deepest voice. Rainbow Dash does kind of sound similar to the english version though.

It's not laughably bad, but I remember back to the days of Courage, Dexter's Laboratory and Samurai Jack, and I shake my head as to why we can't dub as well as we did back then.


Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Post by: Gargravarr on 12 February, 2012, 04:29:13 pm
Pinkie Pie has the deepest voice? What about Fluttershy's voice?


Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Post by: I_like_Nonon on 12 February, 2012, 04:35:40 pm
Fluttershy seems to have a decently light voice. It doesn't have the.... what to call it, 'shy' factor that the english voice does, but it's alright.

Having now watched 7-10 minutes of an actual episode instead of just a few songs, it's... alright. Some of the voices still sound kind of stilted, but it's okay, i guess. Except for Pinkie. Her voice actor isn't bad, but knowing her english voice just completely destroys everything. Every time she opens her mouth, I expect a high pitched voice, and what I get is... the complete opposite. It's incredible how distracting it is <_<


Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Post by: Gargravarr on 12 February, 2012, 04:44:43 pm
Yeah, it does sound a bit jarring...


Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Post by: Gargravarr on 18 February, 2012, 11:03:04 pm
Nice episode (I particularly like how Pinkie Pie apparently imagines things in fuzzy felt), but there are a couple of things I found slightly disturbing.

1. Pinkie's ability to suddenly sprout extra limbs, blow a trumpet through somepony's head, and pull a fuzzy felt check out of her own imagination.

2. Was that Derpy inside Cranky's snowglobe?


Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Post by: Davidk92 on 26 February, 2012, 12:45:55 pm
Speaking of Derpy, they've changed her voice. Supposedly people were offended by it.

Post by: Gargravarr on 26 February, 2012, 01:41:34 pm
Hm... I think I prefer her old one. I'll probably get used to it, though.

Why'd they change it? Seems a bit of a random thing to do...

Supposedly, with her slow voice, crossed eyes, clumsiness and how angry RD got at her, some people thought she was a jab at the mentally ill.

Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Post by: Davidk92 on 26 February, 2012, 02:23:33 pm
Yeah. Plus, supposedly a lot of people sent in hatemail to Hasbro about the change. So sadly, I think that might be the last we'll see of Derpy in a speaking role.


Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Post by: Gargravarr on 26 February, 2012, 02:33:39 pm
Well, maybe if those fans can get over their butthurt and try to get used to the new voice... But I'm not holding my breath.

Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Post by: I_like_Nonon on 28 February, 2012, 03:58:47 pm
I don't really like their reasoning for this... I mean, taking Derpy out because she was the butt of a joke that supposedly makes fun of the mentally ill? Then remove Twilight as well, she's the butt of plenty of jokes that makes fun of nerds and people suffering from OCD. Take out Pinkie, she was the butt of a joke that made fun of schizophrenic people. How about Fluttershy, who's often the butt of jokes that make fun of shyness and social anxiety issues.

Isn't the point of show acceptance? Is it better to totally write out a mentally handicapped character and ignore that they exist, or to show them interacting with others in society? You know, to teach kids watching the show that mentally handicapped people aren't bad?

I dunno, Winter Wrap Up is pretty long as well. The Flim Flam Brothers song is almost 4 minutes IIRC, but then again it does mix speaking with singing, so I don't know if it counts.

I am glad to see that I am not the only one who got a Metal Gear Solid vibe from that. X3

There was evidently a Dr. Who reference as well, but I am not cool enough to have gotten it.  Some of the music, I think.

Indeed, though I couldn't help but feel it was missing something. However, according to TV Tropes there are a few hints in the episodes that Luna will be teaching Twilight from now on. So yay! More Luna!

On an unrelated note, I'm certain this has been discussed before but... why didn't anyone tell me about this? (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/VideoGame/AdventurePonies)

Yeah, when the first Pinkie clone turned into a balloon, her eyes popping out, I was like "Whoa".


Another example of how magic in Equestria is weird (Or maybe Twilight is just weird):

Turning something into oranges: Diffiult spell
Saying 'fuck you, laws of nature' and reversing gravity: Easy peasy


Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Post by: Gargravarr on 18 November, 2012, 07:37:28 pm
*shrug* Maybe it's very hard to turn one organism into a completely different one.

Plus, in the opening, she could have just been mixing her magic with an enchantment that was already there, not doing it from scratch.


Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

I thought they played a song that resembled the A-team theme, good to know it wasn't just me going crazy. Also, best song of Season 3 so far for me, quite catchy.


Also, god damn it Sweetie Belle.

Well, that was better than I feared the inevitable Scootaloo-centric episode would be. I liked Luna's appearance/role in it.

And while using Sweetie Belle basically as slave labour was kind of a jerk move, I like that Rarity can be a great sister to her when it counts.


Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Post by: I_like_Nonon on 08 December, 2012, 08:20:19 pm
Scootaloo is still least-interesting CMC, but my opinion of her has risen.

Pay attention to the scene where Scootaloo takes over though. Sweetie Belle pulls the cart somewhat easily WHILE pushing Rarity, and when Scootaloo takes over, she almost can't pull it.

Sweetie Belle is boss.


Title: Re: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Post by: Gargravarr on 08 December, 2012, 08:25:50 pm
She seemed to be okay in the next scene, though. I think she just had trouble getting it started. Sweetie Belle probably did too.

Post by: Gargravarr on 15 December, 2012, 07:56:53 pm
Well, as irritating as I often find Rainbow Dash, this episode at least showed me she could be a good deal worse. It's also nice to have another Rainbow Dash episode (along with Sonic Rainboom) that isn't about her swallowing her pride/deflating her ego and admitting she's wrong about something, which seemed to be the basic plot of all three Dash-centric episodes of season 2.

I also chuckled at Fluttershy apparently forgetting she's a pegasus.

That does sound plausible...

I'm not too opposed to it, really. Depends on what the writers do with it.

Well, it's finally happened.

Way to go, Hasbro. Lauren Faust has something to say about it, though: https://twitter.com/Fyre_flye/status/300098640150687744

I just hope that's enough to get the game up and running again. I might not play it much, but it'd be such a shame to let all that work go to waste...

[sigh] Listen, I'm as bummed about Fighting Is Magic being cancelled as anyone else, but come on.

Hasbro owns the MLP IP. The team were using the IP without Hasbro's permission. HOW is them asking them to stop as unreasonable as everyone makes it out to be?

Yeah I'm surprised it hasn't already happened, I just hope a way is found for them to continue and finish the game, even if they can't use official characters.

Yeah. Now, if it was something like the Streets of Rage fan remakes, where they HAD permission from the original creators to do it, and then the company waited until it was complete to step in and say "lulz no," THEN I could understand the outrage.

I think it's really more disappointment than outrage. Then again, Hasbro didn't step in until quite a long time after development began, so I guess a lot of fans thought Mane6 had actually got away with it.

Not a bad finale, I think. Decent songs, the alicorn transformation/coronation was handled well. Roll on season 4.

Speaking of which, apparently the first two episodes could be considered a 3-parter with the season 3 finale. Not sure how that works, but whatever.

Also, I stumbled onto this. It made me chuckle.

Indeed...

I wouldn't mind the Equestria Girls spin-off if it weren't for the fact that the human Mane 6 look god-awful.

For starters it would help if they weren't their pony colours. But yeah, for now I'm treating it as a rumour and nothing more.

I couldn't help but think they look like a MLP-themed Bratz knock-off.

Which, knowing Hasbro, probably isn't too far from the truth.
