Fair warning, the first two episodes are pretty damn saccharine. You don't start seeing the nods to Looney Tunes until the third or fourth episode, and the really geeky in-jokes until second season. Here's a handy sampler of some of the geekier references.

Trust me when I say that its level of boorishness isn't even close to the next 20 glaring and depressing problems with this show/trend. I understand how this 'psychological niche' manifested around the damaged souls on 4chan, but it's really disheartening that it shows up here.

Counter_Intelligent: Do they have to reform all the villains?


Yes because A it's a kids' show and B "villain" is cheap way to say "someone exactly like me but opposed to my goals at the moment" and win win is better than win lose or lose lose.

Bust seriously, this episode could have been an hour or two easily. Instead it was over in a minute and a half.

I don't think they're going to be able to reform King Sombra, or the Shapechanger from last season.

Of course, King Sombra would need some actual characterization to be reformed...

Aw, fark that noise.

It's been pretty much obvious from the beginning Twilight is being groomed to take over for Celestia.

Celestia's getting old... she doesn't have the power to defeat her former enemies anymore. She doesn't even control the elements of Harmony anymore. Bottom line... don't you think Celestia looks tired?

Why else would the ruler of the land take interest in one pony's education? Now, granted, she is the most powerful pony in all the land, which only goes to show she's destined for something major.

Plus, Twilight is sort of Royalty now, her brother being a Prince. And, this is the Destiny year.

It's the Greek letter 'psi', which is apparently used sometimes to represent psychology and psychiatry, and is a handy pun on 'psychic'. Geordi's I would have thought would be an actual tricorder.

Looks like the show is going the Loki route only in the opposite direction.


And by "Loki route" I mean how in Norse mythology Loki went from being a mischief maker to totally evil. Whereas Discord seems to be going from evil to mischief maker.


But that's just me.

Great episode, one of Season 3's best.

Ok, so the DisQord dialogue that was supposed to blow up the internet?

I hadn't seen the episode myself, and Ms. McCarthy may have been a little biased. I'll cut her some slack. Even if it didn't blow up the Internet, the delivery on "Well-played Jean-Luc" was pure Q, as was "most of the time". (Fluttershy coaxing him to admit that friendship was magic was downright adorable.)

"Perhaps there is a reside of humanity in Q after all. / Don't bet on it, Picard"
"I'm ready to use my magic for good instead of evil... Most of the time."

That few seconds of Discord standing alone on the ice rink, terrified at the sheer boredom of having nobody to play with, and no friends to exploit. Poor fella.

Now the real question is, what's been Celestia's agenda? We have that book from the Season 3 opener, a piece of Sombra floating around out there somewhere, whatever had her galloping off to Saddle Arabia. What could be so important that she actually needs Discord's help to pull it off?

More info on the last episode

"Season 3 Episode 13
Magical Mystery Cure
Aired Date: February 16, 2013
Synopsis: When Twilight casts a spell that switches the Cutie Marks and destinies, the only way to reverse the spell is by writing her own magic."


For some reason, I keep getting the vibe that its gonna be a "Tapestry" like episode

Wouldn't those be the Dominion? Chrystalis wasn't going to assimilate Ponyville, she was going to use it as an emotion buffet.

Also, props to Faust for getting a freaking succubus in a kid's show. Too bad she couldn't have been as hot as Morrigan.

You do know Faust has not been the Executive Producer for the show since the end of S1, right? S2 onward has been all Jason Thiessen (and I like his style much better, even if S3 has been so-so)

Makes you wonder if they really are cleaning things up in order to sell out to Disney, as was rumored late last year.

Nice.

What''s Deanna!Pony's supposed to be?

And what would Geordi!Pony's be? It's covered by the tricorder pouch...

It's the Greek letter 'psi', which is apparently used sometimes to represent psychology and psychiatry, and is a handy pun on 'psychic'.

I got a bit of that vibe myself, but I think the real lesson was that there are lines one simply doesn't cross. You may like being with your (partner, spouse, employer), you may not want to hurt them, but if they continue to lie to you... there are going to be times in life when you can't save a personal or business relationship, and when that happens, you cut your losses and walk away.

Fluttershy was ostensibly willing to let Discord take over the world, rather than break her word. The other five of the mane 6 were as convinced of it as Discord was. Even if she was just bluffing, I daresay that's rather iron-willed of her.

Form a basic Discord shape around a lampstand using polymer clay or other suitable material, shatter a few suitably-colored bits of ceramic for color, apply to body form, smooth over with grout, and an old lamp just got 20% cooler in four days flat.

I wouldn't worry about massive changes. Megan McCarthy has been tweeting a fair bit about people spreading rumors on the internet who don't know what they're talking about.

Additionally, a recent USA today article quoted the CEO herself of Hasbro Inc. as being thrilled with the wider fanbase the show has achieved, and seems to want to keep it that way; the article additionally stated that said CEO was the executive producer of the 80's version of My Little Pony, which I think would additionally imply that she wouldn't want to ruin it competently.

Additionally, Hub's programming is changing to reflect an older audience, with the addition of Animaniacs into their standard lineup. This isn't the action of someone looking to re-girlify the series; it's the action of someone wanting to take advantage of older fans.

In short, every factual indication is that the show is really going to continue being awesome.

Personally, I'd love to see a crossover between FiM and Transformers Prime. Would the Elements of Harmony work against Megatron? How would Arcee react to all the cute Ponies? Would Discord drive Starscream batshiat insane? Would Megatron's first act be to use the Nemesis' Fortree Maximus-grade Nucleon Shock Cannon to obliterate Ponyville?

All of the commercials during the season finale countdown were hilarious. I loved the one where Soundwave was watching Generation One footage and Megatron asked him why he was watching his home movies, then ribbed Soundwave at how big and boxy his G1 look was.

Three of us. MLP:FiM's "Twilight, git mah rope." and "Does this count?" are comparatively tame, but they're operating at a much higher difficulty factor.

And the moral is: "If you throw everything you possibly can at the censors, and do so at every possible opportunity, you're practically guaranteed that at least one will slip through in every episode."

Here are the trailers. They're a little more colorful than I'd remembered.

Tiny Toon Adventures
Animaniacs
Pinky and the Brain (or is that Pinkie and the Brain?)
Pinky, Elmyra and the Brain (Feat. Luna as Elmyra)
Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries
Freakazoid (Pinkazoid)

Yeah, but just think of the wrap party she'd be able to throw at the end of the season.

Brings to mind another thing, just WTF happened 1000 years ago? Sombra/Crystal Empire. Luna getting the boot. Have there truly been no threats that required the Elements for the past 1000 years, and if so, how'd Celestia deal with 'em? If there is a regular cycle to Equestrian time, Celestia's role is more like that of The Oracle or The Architect from "The Matrix" - manage the world until it starts to fall apart, find The One (or The Six), and reboot the world at the end of each cycle.

I gotta make sure the dialogue makes sense in english, that they fit in the speech bubbles and whatnot... (and the cleaning too, like i said)

All in all, between shepherd emailing me the 4koma, getting the translation in the inbox, the cleaning, typesetting and proofreading, it takes about 2 hrs... sometimes more... as my two chinese friends are in different time zones (one actually in taiwan, the other in california)

so yeah, the actual artist mails me directly his 4koma so i can get it out there in english for everyone else to read =P

I didn't think about the idea of having two layers of translators; one to get it to English without regard to idiom, and another to take the intended speech and bring it to US English. 20/20 hindsight, it makes perfect sense. That you (and the rest of the community) can turn things around like this in timeframes measured in hours, rather than days/weeks, still boggles my mind.

Speaking of boggled minds...
