    My thoughts on the latest ep:
    This being the first episode in 3 weeks, I'm not sure if my opinion is being influenced by that. Regardless, it was a wonderful ep. Seeing Discord again was freaking amazing. He was funny as hell the entire time. I especially liked the dinner party with Discord. That entire scene was pure brilliance. I also quite enjoyed Fluttershy being forced to choose between "taking the easy way out" (that is, turning him back to stone) and trying to stick with her plan (befriend him). The interesting thing about the ep was that the entire time I was concerned that Discord was simply manipulating Fluttershy into turning against her friends so that he would be able to turn Ponyville back into the chaos capital of the world with no opposition. Also, seeing Discord's "emotional side" (as much as it pains me to use that term, I have no other fitting one) was quite great as well. It really humanized-err, ponyfied-umm...Draconeqqused him? Whatever. Point is, it made him far more relatable as a character and made his redemption much more believable. Hell, it made me sad for him.

    In conclusion, wonderful episode. AND MAYBE WE'LL SEE MORE OF HIM NOW THAT HE ISN'T ENCASED IN STONE *COUGH COUGH*

    Also, shipping. Shipping freaking everywhere.

    My 2 bits:
    THIS EPISODE WAS QUITE POSSIBLY THE GREATEST EPISODE EVER. I AM NOT KIDDING. THIS EPISODE WAS FANTASTICALLY AMAZING.
    First off, DEM SEASON 1 REFERENCES. My favorite part was the rock farm reference. So Pinkie's cutie mark story WAS true! I knew it all along!
    The second greatest part was DAT OPENING. Man, that opening was awesome. It seemed like something out of a completely different show.
    "Saddlearabia". That was brilliant. I had to pause the ep because I was laughing my ass off.
    Also, Zecora. Apparently, back when the show was more "adventure" based, Zecora was to be a secondary mentor to Twilight. And guess what happened here? Zecora actually reminded me of Yoda at some points, which is freaking awesome and amazing.
    Now, I know I'm ignoring the elephant in the room. Trixie. The ending made me reverse my stance on Trixie now that the whole "begging for forgiveness" thing was outside the realm of fanfiction. Also, the Alicorn Amulet, while having nothing to do with Sombra, was a very interesting idea and a great bit of world-building, introducing magical artifacts like that.
    Pinkie Pie's mouth being taken away was a horrible act of cruel torture on Trixie's part. Pinkie Pie would not have eaten for a week, meaning that by the end she must have been STARVING.
    Finally, the ending. That damn ending. The fourth wall must be on DEFCON 5 after that ending.

    Guys.
    I had an idea for a fanfiction based off of the new ep.
    You remember that Manehatten branch?
    20 years later, the Cutie Mark Crusaders are a massive organization, with thousands of members all across Equestria. A former member who got his cutie mark in history decides to write an unofficial history of the group.
    Sound good?

    I'll say it again, but it's getting a little tiresome. The accent was part of his act. Pirates have British accents, and he was a pirate, so he faked an accent. Doesn't it seem a little weird that the only time he has it is when he's in character, trick-or-treating and trying to impress the lady giving out candy?

    This is, what, my fourth installment of "Blindingly obvious things that the pony fandom just doesn't seem to get"? I'm not blaming you specifically, 9K, because it is somewhat saturated in the brony hivemind. Someone just told you the wrong thing. Still, though, it really grinds my gears.

    I would argue that Pipsqueak is supposed to be British. He's from Trottingham, a pun on Nottingham, which is a British city.

    My thoughts on the new ep:
    I really liked this episode. First of all, it dealt with bullying, a topic I think every kids show should cover at some point. Second, I really like Babs Seed as a character. The New York accent not only sounded authentic, but she actually managed to keep it for the whole episode, unlike a certain other blank-flanked character *COUGH* PIPSQUEAK *COUGH*. She also managed to contain a lot of depth for a one-off character. Most other one-offs, like Gilda and Trixie, were a lot more one-dimensional than Babs. The song in the episode is catchy as hell, and I might actually like it. I'll never admit it, though, because it's in a certain genre that manly men such as myself are not to enjoy under any circumstances. I think my favorite part of the episode was when the float was booby-trapped and the CMC had to stop it. I watched the new James Bond yesterday, and one a scale of one to ten, they both scored 10/10 in terms of tension and suspense. Also, they used the word "irony" properly, which I was very surprised by. Most kids my age can't use the term properly, and neither can most television writers.

    Sorry to interrupt. Just here to say Tosh.0 put pony r34 on its new episode today. Apparently EQD posted it, but deleted it after a while. If you want to see it, search for yourself. Bronies Tosh.0 on Youtube should do it. I'm not in a mood to get banned today. Yes, the video is really nsfw and I don't reccomend watching it with anyone around. The uploader also decided to make the thumbnail the bad part, just warning ya. I'd bet its gonna get deleted, so if you do wanna see it, hurry. Please don't freak out. I've had enough for a few days. The best part is, they blamed it on Reddit and not /mlp/.

    I just watched it.
    What a **** that man was.

    Nobody comments on my Half-Life joke? :(
    Back to ponies, let's go to the Trixie episode. Anyone else think that Sombra might be involved?

    Guys.
    Episode 3 is coming out tomorrow.
    I've been waiting for this game for YEARS! I hope that Valve has done a great job. And Source 2 looks awesome! I can't wait to learn that engine and start crankin' out mods for this game.
    I can't wait for this episode to air. MULTIPLE PINKIE PIES? This might just be the best episode of the season. Scratch that, best ep of ALL TIME.

    While we're talking about this, let me ask you all-
    How did you find ponies?
    I found ponies on this very thread (or a past incarnation, anyways). I dismissed the show for a few months until I found out it was made by Lauren Faust. Since I loved Powerpuff Girls and Foster's, I gave the show a watch. And here I am now.
