I see all the cool, adult people have showed up to express to the rest of us how very adult they are, what with worrying about what others do with their time and all.

dude,  from a darwinian standpoint, adults have every right to be weary of, and disgusted by, any organism that is clearly defunct or mentally unstable.  It took millenia of evolution to reach this point.  50+ generations of mine and your ancestors toiled and sacrificed to keep the family alive.  And for what?  So a bunch of opulent, self indulgent farkwads can watch my little pony, or live in a bar somewhere till they're 40, or suck a D instead of impregnating a V?  It's like spitting on the graves of all that made your life possible.

/They agree with me, im sure.

This show kicked my ass today.

Granted, I am already an emotional mess from becoming a grandfather this week, and dealing with multiple high-stress issues, and no sleep... but I absolutely lost it during this episode and bawled. I really did.

/Blame the wildlife rehabbers I work with. When Angel reminded Fluttershy of her destiny I just lost it, because it reminded me of all the animals I have helped and been close to over the last decade, especially our rehab resident raccoons and one wonderful 13 year old squirrel, who have been wonderful little friends over the last year... and knowing that I am not really going to see them much anymore as I am not working for the rehab anymore.

//I love this silly silly kids show. I really do. I hope it stays this much fun.

///I thought the songs were terrific.


You're killing me. I have a distracting toddler, so I missed the bit with Angel, but I have a feeling it'll hit me when I can watch undistracted. I just passed my dog's 15th birthday, and I hear a ticking clock with her, so I'm all emotional about pets and such right now.

Completely concur with everything Dinobot said. I wanted to like it. I was elated at first when I found out MUSICAL EPISODE OMG!! But the conflict resolved way too fast, and the rest of the ep was just fluffy and substance-less, and Twi's transcendence scene was just weird. I hope the series didn't jump the shark, I hope it was just a bad day. But Derpy couldn't save this one for me. Even Pinkie being especially hilarious couldn't save it for me.

Unlike many of the Scootaloo Little fanboys, I say don't worry about shark jumping until after the first few episodes of S4.

It's obvious this was meant to be the end of the show. It's also quite likely that the season was 26 episodes squished down into 13, with this episode definitely being a two-parter condensed into 22 minutes.

After how good season 2 was, I can forgive how meh the shortened S3 was. The full, 26 episode as planned S4 will answer whether the show has gone to shiat or not.

/No Derpy until the final two minutes of the season and no Rarity episode... how could S3 be that good?

That wasn't me -- but can't blame me for thinking it though.

The show went from being an example of Plato's Kallipolis to being a sort of Nietzche-like construct based on the idea of the Ubermensch, where only a certain race is fated to rule/lord over the rest of the ponies.

Just watched it, and while I don't feel it was a BAD episode, it certainly wasn't what I'd consider a GOOD episode. I liked the early premise with the switched cutey marks, and hearing Pinkie singing with a Texas accent was funny as hell. I liked that Derpy finally showed back up(several times!). I disliked that more than half the episode seemed to be songs. I also dislike how they handled Twilight becoming an Alicorn. What, you get blasted into the afterlife or something and come back as one?

On a related note, did they change Rarity's singing actress?

I'm not sure that logic really follows since you can clearly become an Alicorn when you weren't born one. If any race can become an Alicorn, then Alicorn's are all races, not a separate one.

However, they make it seem that you need to be a Unicorn, as its based on Magic. Pegasi and earth ponies cannot do magic, therefore are automatically excluded from transcending.

My two bits:

Like most of you, I thought it felt rushed. I loved the premise of switched cutie marks, and I wanted to see more of the havoc, or at least let each resolution carry the same weight as Fluttershy regaining her purpose. They could have ended with the other five blasting Twilight and leaving a star-shaped scorch mark with a "To be continued..." but that probably would have traumatized the children in the audience. I'm okay with alicorn Twilight, but she's now princess of...what, exactly? Why does she have to be a princess at all?

/So, Twilight has her PhD. Her dissertation was only one sentence, but it took three years of research to write it.
//Favorite episode of the season, everyone? Mine was "Magic Duel."

MadCat221: Why was this season short?  Was it to make the syndication threshold point a nice clean season-end break?


The rumor mill says MLP was originally planned to end after this episode. 65 episodes were over, they could have ended it and reran 'em until G5 since 65 is the usual number needed for animated shows in syndication. Plus, there was talk about Disney buying Hasbro.

But, Disney bought George Lucas instead, and Ponies got another full season scheduled. But the condensed 13 episode season was still there to be burned off, with an ending that really feels like AN ENDING.


/if Disney did buy Hasbro, at least Marvel could finally reprint the old ROM series.
