nope.avi



After finally having seen the finale of season 2 (shim made me wait till we could watch it together over skype)  i'm... Somewhat curious to see what'll happen in season 3.  At first the ending of season 2 had me really disappointed (it felt like they made Celestia easy for the villain to beat as some kind of cheap trick to make things tense),  but when i really think about it,  the introduction of the two new characters I think adds a lot of room for the plot to expand and to build some sort of broader story-line vs. just having completely disconnected episodes.

Looking forward to seeing where it goes.

Your reply. It confuses me. Was that supposed to be a link or something?

This list of S3 episodes looks pretty promising!

Apparently that's not how the internet works anymore, people just pretend to make links because it gets roughly the same idea across. It's like, "let's all agree that I found a video of Big Mac saying nope and posted the link here."

Linguistic innovation. The internet has it.

Actually, nope.avi references a specific video on Youtube (and possibly elsewhere) where some character from TF2 runs up to the camera, says "nope", has his neck grow in length, and then runs off.  It's a meme cited under various circumstances (I don't know what specific cirumstances, if any, it tends to be referenced in response to), but is especially relevant here (because of the similar weird neck phenomenon).

I'd find and link the video, but I'm on a phone that's a few IQ points shy of being a smart phone.  No Youtube for this yoshi at the moment...

From what I've read, season 3 is going to mostly focus on Twilight :o.

For those who don't mind some more spoilery goodness some awesomeness has appeared, in the form of an 8-minute preview of the crystal pony thing.

I'm likely not going to get to watch it until Sunday evening. I'm going back to Ohio tonight to visit family and friends, and will be busy hanging with them all day Saturday. At least that means it won't be too hard to avoid reading about it before I see it.

Perhaps the writers wished to continue Twilights training in that
friends are always beneficial in life.  Rather than sending her off
to do a quest without help from friends.



All right, how is this going to work? Last season we kept all the episode discussion in one giant thread. Seeing as that made it inconvenient to discuss any but the most recent episode, I do think individual episode threads would be nice.

Anyway, Crystal Ponies! I loved how Twilight used her powers more in this episode, like when she fell from the stairs and then realized she could just levitate and teleport; and of course the gravity magic. Also the animation seemed really good. And using the song as a closing was a great way to keep an already-expected ending dramatic.

I was initially excited about getting more examination of Twilight and Celestia's relationship, but to me that aspect seemed a little flat. Why the use of the quest as a test? And why the instructions, 'in the end it must be you alone, who assists Shining Armor and Cadance...' You're not going it alone when you're helping someone else. And then the whole time, Twilight's interpreting things as if Celestia already foresaw everything and knows the precise nature of the test. Which to me seems to go against the carefully-worded but incorrect instructions.

As for the crystal ponies themselves I was glad to find they weren't an additional type of pony; I mean they're just earth ponies who sparkle due to the protecting effects of the crystal heart.

Uh....No. Making a single thread for "each individual episode" is just going to flood/spam the forum. Therefore, it's better if this thread was merged with this one:

.......and Neofur's thread can be retitled as "Season Three Discussion".

Isn't the point of a forum to have threads where you can discuss things?  But, apparently, we're only allowed to discuss the most recent episode because otherwise there'd be too much discussion?

I know that being a moderator is a lot of work, Kobuk, but sometimes it feels like you're just trying to stop people from being able to use the forum.

Keeping any and all Season 3 discussion to a single thread is a matter of simplicity and efficiency. Nothing more. I see nothing wrong with what I have advocated. And I resent the fact that you are implying that I am trying to "stifle" discussion. I am not. Members CAN discuss MLP. But I feel it is better to continue and use Neofur's thread to further discuss Season 3 episodes. His thread started out originally discussing the upcoming Season 3 air date. Why not just continue discussing Season 3 further in that thread?
From my POV, Neofur's thread is a "waste of space" because all it does is discuss an "air date" which is a very trivial thing. Might as well use his thread for more Season 3 discussion. ;)


Edit: Neofur's thread (Posts 1-21) and aspect's thread (Posts 22 - etc.) have been merged.
