Take these broken wings and learn to fly: S4 Pony Discussion (Screened episodes only)

Post  LoganAura on Sat Nov 23, 2013 11:58 am

Update:

It seems this season has already seen its share of leaks. Let's put down some ground rules for here.

- This thread is for the discussion of the new season of pony. (Season 4, for those not keeping score)
- Episodes may be discussed immediately at the time of airing (10AM PST on Saturdays)
- Episodes and information should not be discussed until this time.
- No spoilers beyond this level should exist - not even in spoiler tags. This will be the province of the special spoilers-only thread.

---

Basically, if you want to talk about the new season, you can talk about it here. Please only talk about the shown episodes, not anything leaked or titles, or animatics, or anything similar.

Have a spoiler tag, since even though their aired, eps aren't up yet on youtube so people likely can't/haven't seen them yet.

Spoiler:
- Twilight gets adorkable superboost.
- Discord schenanigans.
- A continuing arc / quest / plot hook for future eps!
- Twilight stealing RD's job.
- One of the ads had crazy giggle Twilight in the bushes.
- BOUNCY BOUNCY BOUNCY.
- Lots and LOTS of continuity, callbacks.
- Lots of fanfics destroyed.
- Spike has narcolepsy / feinting fits.
- Glimpses of the past.
- Substance abuse! Zecora approved!
- No new villain. Sadface.
- Many things happen rather... conveniently.

I enjoyed the episodes. It's always fun to see more adorkable Twilight, but Applejack really stepped up in this episode, and that was cool.

Out of things you mention there, most looking forward to seeing more:
Discord (I really think he's being handled well so far)
Zecora (She IS in that group picture in the intro)
Glimpses of the past.

Also,
Spoiler:
Not being able to rely on the elements of harmony anymore

I also agree with everything Xel and Lapis said.

The sky didn't look as awesome as I'd imagined in a fanfic where the same thing happened with sun/moon :/

Was it ever explained why the sun and moon was just both hanging about in the sky?

In the fanfic? Yeah, it was actually part of a coronation ceremony. This was a really old fanfic, where Applejack became the third alicorn princess. It was weird but cool.

In the show? Obviously, it was because neither of the princesses were in control of their respective heavenly body, so it was apparently the default.

And what happened to all my spoilers? :<

It's kind of redundant to put spoiler tags in a spoiler thread.

Wow, Logan, just ignore my season four topic, huh? jocolor 

Alright, but seriously now, I thought this episode was...pretty okay. Better than average. A bit rushed for my tastes, and the flashback sequences were anticlimactic because of that, and Luna was once again given no lines...but I admit to being intrigued by this mystery the Tree of Harmony produced and I think giving up the Elements was a surprising and very mature option to take on the writer's part.

Also, Discord. <3

I will agree, in terms of openers, this one was the weakest of all four sessions in my opinion. But still I did enjoy it overall and it did get me pumped to see where the rest of the session is going. I mean it seems like we're getting a session long story arc... THAT WILL BE AWESOME. Assuming they're able to make the payoff as great as we're all hoping it'll be.

I thoroughly enjoyed it. While it was a little convenient at times, gotta give props for shaking up the status quo. Also, they actually let AJ do actiony stuff for a change so it gets my seal of approval.

So Twilight Sparkle took the Water of Life? And apparently it takes Shadow magic to activate? Hmm...

Post  Zarhon on Mon Nov 25, 2013 7:16 pm

Time for some terrible intellectual COMMENTARY (also known as typing whatever comes to mind).

PART 1 - PRETTY PRETTY PRINCESS:
PART 1
- Initiate adorkable!
- Twilight, your mane isn't for keeping nests in. That's Fluttershy's job. I thought you learned that by now.
- Annnd crash. Twilight injury/humiliation count: 2.
- Exposition!
- Annnd supercrash after hitting the only three smog clouds in the sky. Counter: 6 (+1 for each cloud)
- Pinkie Pie rubs it in.
- Oh glorious dirt, reveal to me your secrets.
- Rarity is being paid royalties by the Hub merch team.
- Pinkie Pie, keep your fetishes to yourself.
- Mayor desperate for their assistance? Again? First Winter Wrap up, then AJ's prize money, then the Trixie fiasco, now this? How incompetent is she?
- Nice exposition there, AJ. And foreshadowing. And morale slinging.
- Not on the carpet, Pinkie Pie!
- You fools, now she has you in her Pinkie-bloodoath thrall!
- Surprise hugs!
- That seems like a lot of effort to time correctly.
- Checklists! And panic-Twi. Her face seems odd when she's flying as well.
- "You may not need to bow anymore, but I'm still the top horse here."
- "Here, let me recount the season 1 pilot episodes for those of you with terrible memory."
- Did... Did Celestia and Twi just make a "plot call" agreement?
- Wow, if Pinkie Pie managed to get an exploding confetti letter all the way to the Royal Castle, imagine what a letter-bomb maker could do.
- I've seen enough derpibooru artwork to know where this is going.
- Welp, so much about "world is doomed if Celestia/Luna don't raise the sun/moon" fics. Guess they've got a default mode.
- Everypony, panic!
- Collective gasp of super-obvious!
- BOINGY BOINGY BOINGY!
- VANISHEEEEEED (Damn dirty rogues)
- Spike feint count: 1.
- "We're only talking to you cause we're desperate."
- Feint count: 2.
- "Go on a wild alicorn chase for my amusement."
- Feint count: 3.
- If Fluttershy didn't housebreak every one of these animals, she's gonna have a miserable job of cleaning her house later.
- Threatdown: Fluttershy edition.
- Bitch-slapped!
- Oh hey, the barn isn't demolished!
- This is a cloud. All craftsponyship is of the highest quality. It menaces with spikes of thornwood.
- RD, the clouds can't talk to you. We've been through this.
- Actually, how did the clouds get affected by the thorns? They're freaking up in the sky. You can't even grow stuff in them.
- Disregard evil, continue being fabulous.
- Calming Chamomile? Looks like Rarity suffers from insomnia.
- "I swear I'm not doing this on purpose... this time!"
- Or... you could, you know... Gallop there. Because you're a horse. Which would probably be easier than flying.
- That's not engine sounds, that just bad digestion.
- Wilhelm scream!
- No shit, Rarity.
- "I demand exposition!"
- How'd Pinkie manage to not get spiked/impaled/splinters from that?
- Unicorn horns work like flourescent lightbulbs.
- And then the camera-pony got thornwood-molested.
- "Urge to vomit... rising..."
- Twilight's S&D kinks finally prove useful.
- It's Friendship is Witchcraft, all over again. Also, Twicounter= 7
- Rub it in, Spike.
- Rarity PAWCH!
- That window is like a guillotine!
- Gear up sequence!
- Pinkie... That... Okay, I can't be mad at you. Continue being best pony.
- SAILOR STARS POWER MAKE UPPP.
- Discord has yet to catch up with season 2 earworms.
- That towel looks like bare "naked shaved" skin.
- Is he rubbing his butt in her direction?
- Discord really isn't helping his cause acting like a dick.
- And now it's Mentally Advanced references! Kinda questions his devotion to the friendship, though.
- "Ask the savvy magical racial stereotype!"
- Moral of this episode: Drugs are okay if you are rich, famous, royalty, or other form of celebrity.
- "Okay, let me just use my POWERS OF DARKNESS for cooking purposes."
- That's not milk!
- "WE WASTED OUR ENTIRE BUDGET ON THESE EFFECTS, FOAL."
- Deactivate wingboner!
- OH NO, WHAT HORROR!
- MY LITTE PONEEEEEE
PART 2 - CENSORS GOT NOTHING ON US:
PART 2
- This episode brought to you by the dentists association.
- Lasers!
- Princesses!
- Flying!
- Death count-OH CMON
- In the past, they had the budget for 3D effects.
- BEAM BATTLE GO
- "You cried like a baby. Here, have some pictures."
- Discord is very meta this episode. He's stealing Pinkie's job!
- Remember kids, if you don't get your high the first time, try again!
- When I first saw those, I though they were coals. Note for future reference: If Discord is eating it, it's probably plot-important.
- Discord didn't read the villain's guide.
- Tree of Harmony: Our artifacts are 100% organic!
- Stop it Discord, that's Pinkie's job.
- BOINGY BOINGY BOINGY!
- "But whatever it is, it will probably try to rape us horribly."
- Or you could go around it.
- Twicounter: 8
- Moral quandry time!
- "Girls, this isn't an abridged series. Stop being retards."
- FINE I'LL BE A PRETTY PRETTY PRINCESS WITHOUT YOU!
- That stupid scepter already has like 15 pages of memes on derpibooru. Internet, you disappoint me greatly. Twi's face agrees with me.
- Discord is a Q tip. Get it? Cause he's Q. And in her ear. It's a clever pun, allusion and reference all in one!
- BOINGY BOINGY BOINGY
- "Well that's convenient."
- [Insert homestuck references]
- Did she fall down those stairs on purpose, just to make a point?
- WE'RE LOST FOREVE- Oh there they are. Convenient.
- Twicount: 9
- You can't beat the weed!
- "Guess we are abridged characters after all."
- Feint count: 4
- Facehugger plants! As if this episode wasn't chock full of adult references already.
- When in doubt, troll plants.
- Yay, murdercount: 1! Sadly for plants, but still murder!
- "Welp, I tried."
- "Okay, now you're acting like an abridged retard."
- "We need our Mcguffins to kill things! It's what keeps us friends!"
- Twicount: 11
- Not shown: 30+ seconds of molestation
- Poo? Of all the "PG friendly cursewords" he could have said, they had to use the toilet humor one?
- "Finally, I can expand my wingboner."
- Good thing princesses can hold their breaths for two episodes.
- Lazy perspective animation.
- It's full of stars!
- And thus, a thousand TF2 players made a collective sigh of disappointment.
- "We don't have enough screen time left to deal with this now."
- HUMBLE'D
- John Joseco probably squee'd when he saw this part.
- Trollface ACTIVATE
- "Give me that scrumpy!"
- Discord is not good on the finer details of evil plan-making. "A" for effort, though.
- "This crown is extremely painful to wear."
- Twilight reference GOOOO
- And then Twilight took RD's job.
- Morals learned: Cut your weeds, drugs are okay, Mcguffins don't make friendships.

Welp, new episode. Going to be honest, this was one of my least favorite. They made all of the mane 6 completely incompetent during the first half of it, especially Rainbow Dash, though she at least kind of had an excuse. The whole time they sat there watching Daring Do fight I was facepalming. That was seriously stupid. The mane 6 are the elements of harmony. They've fought Discord, Changelings, beasts in the Everfree forest, but they apparently are simply too awestruck by a single combat exchange to think, 'Oh hey, we should help!" until it's already too late. The episode ended well, and the temple scenes were fun, but I can't forgive that scene where thy just sit and watch Daring Do fight.

Agreed with the above.

Wonder if the production crew were trolling the fandom with this episode. I was watching the youtube video with the fan commentary, and it kept being mentioned on how RD and TS were like the brony community.

Post  Zarhon on Sat Dec 07, 2013 11:11 pm

(Apparently I posted in the wrong thread, since we have two for some reason)

@ Lapis: The be frank, a lot of ponies in this episodes sort of "ignored" things they shouldn't have:
1) The entire Daring Do fight was ignored by DD and the thugs as well - including the bad guys ignoring the Mane Six, right outside the house, as they broke in.
2) The bad guys not overhearing Rainbow Dash explaining Daring Do's plan to ambush them.
3) The unspeakably poor disguise Daring Do made.
4) The bad guys missing the six pony heads, mid-ritual, until they made themselves known.
5) The bad guys missing RD/Daring Do, as well as "hesitating" on stopping them later on.

Fluttershy might actually have wanted to help, but she was probably too shy to act/cowardly to act upon it, and informed the rest too late. Twilight also had a "hero swoon" excuse. Pinkie Pie was enjoying the spectator role (and isn't a party pooper). They were pretty much engrossed in the thing (and it gets lampshaded as well for comedic purposes), along with bystander effect (it sadly happens in real life as well - the more people that can help there are, the less likely someone will act to help).

Anyway, have a pair of more best worst commentaries!

Castle-Mania:
- Pictured: Every member of the educational system, everywhere, ever.
- Murder quota: Book, duster.
- Twilight needs to brush up on her wiki skills.
- At least she can Jenga.
- Okay, how did Celestia know that Twilight was in need of a book at that very moment? Is she spying on her? Reading her mind?
- "We couldn't bother with, let alone afford, renovations."
- "No, I won't tell you where my secret book is. Hope you like vague hints."
- Bookboner, activate!
- That's a really uncanny looking statue, compared to everypony else. Artist must have been high as a kite.
- "Pay no attention to the demonic spiders."
- BOINGY BOINGY BOINGY
- Those bees kind of stand out from there
- Also, BEEEEES
- Dammit Pinkie, stop making me go check the transcripts.
- The hell, Gummy. Do you have no pain receptors at all?
- Wait, are they competing to blink last, or move last? Just the whole 'not blink' issue eventually makes your eyes hurt. They don't even need bees.
- And why the suits? Real people have done this without a suit.
- Excellent score.
- Pinkie, those aren't even...
- And then the children had yet another reason to hate the educational system - THE BELLS
- "Alright, we need somepony to do this obnoxious job. Any ideas on who we should ask?"
"Pinkie Pie."
"Pinkie Pie."
"Me!"
- "No, It's not 'gay chicken', RD. That's just pointless."
- I would hate to walk through a forest during any spider season, let alone star-spider season.
- Angel does not approve of this trip.
- "Because of reasons."
- "And greed. Greed too."
- "I call bullshit on that, Rarity."
- Tee hee, that gag.
- THE SHADOW KNOWS
- Why did you take Angel with you here anyway? He can handle himself at home just fine!
- "I need these to summon the hellbeasts, of course!"
- Let's be frank: When was Granny Smith wrong about something?
- My little animations: Recycling is magic!
- That looks dangerous for one's teeth.
- "Don't be a smartass, Rarity."
- "Well, she's dead."
- Wouldn't Fluttershy hear and recognize the duo below her?
- Don't tempt fate, Rarity.
- Angel is such a dipshit.
- Silly looking colonel picture returns. And some old granny. Bet she's the villain this season.
- Don't be a wuss, Spike.
- It's a secret to everypony.
- The book has a smiley face. Now you can't unsee it.
- Who makes these kinds of decorations?
- Okay Dash that is adorable.
- Rarity: Still a mistress of sarcasm.
- And then shipping happens.
- Ahh, the classic cutaway gag.
- Dammit, you just passed the important bits you two. Turn around!
- Seriously, it's like, 10 feet away.
- "What else could it be, magic?"
- Rarity, castles don't have opinions.
- Is a piece of armor really that terrifying?
- As are statues, apparently.
- Fun fact: That dragon statue was actually visible in the previous episode, during the flashback (the sisters fly past it in a few frames).
- Everypony scream!
- Rarity, get your priorities straight.
- Rarity looks kind of bald in that one shot.
- Donald Duck sound effects!
- "I win if you're dead, right?"
- That frame doesn't make any geometrical sense. And how did she know Rainbow went that way?
- When in doubt, abuse Rarity.
- Seriously? You, Rainbow Dash, a weather-pony, are afraid of lightning?!
- Tilt!
- Rarity's legs look so silly in that frame.
- Years of therapy, lost to one shadow.
- "Don't be a pussy, spike."
- "EVERYONE CHILL THE BUCK OUT!"
- Also if she can do that, the implications are rather worrying.
- Twilight, is your horn growing?
- "Twilight, please stop trying to absorb us into one ultimate best pony."
- SUDDENLY, THE EPIC PLOT TWIST NOPONY EXPECTED IS ABOUT TO BE REVEALED
- Also shame Pinkie Pie isn't here.
- OH SNAP!
- She knows how to grind that organ.
- Dat... bellring.
- Dammit Pinkie I don't want to read the transcripts every time you say something.
- The cupcakes party, of course! Much less witnesses here!".
- That is a very specific trap for a very specific creature to affect.
- Strangely enough, this might actually be a thing that happens for Pinkie Pie.
- Moral of the story: In a land of magic and legitimate horrors that defy logic and reason, being one of them is a good way to avoid being a wuss.
- And then future generations would be maddened in their attempts to discern Pinkie Pie's entries.
- "Dear diary: I enjoy tempting fate."
- NOPONY EXPECTS THE - Oh bugger!

Daring Don't:
- Being a druid is thankless work.
- Pictured: An accurate representation of Bronies between seasons / episodes.
- Aztec/Maya/Incan ponies! Also, how do they hold those bows?
- Tails... Work that way, apparently?
- That bird looks so happy to be used as a projectile.
- Now THAT is a well-used visual gag.
- Dat pronking.
- Ponies with hats!
- AJ, not wearing her hat? BLASPHEMY! Although it does look awesome.
- Squee!
- "What? I was reading fanfi- I mean yes, Daring Do books. Right."
- Ewwww. Dash!
- Withdrawal symptoms, go!
- Angry Dashface!
- And then the plot quickly turns into one of "Misery".
- TRAVEL BY MAP! Also Indiana Jones / Jurassic Park music!
- Wow, Pinkie just defaced miles of countryside.
- Everyone ignore the smart pony. Also, that horn.
- Slobbish behavior is a distinct possiblity.
- Return of the Dashface.
- "Get off my book, lesbimare!"
- "Pay no attention to my magical, glowing McGuffin."
- Return of the two-button typewriter! I think their idea of making letters involves a mechanism that writes its letters with differing heights, akin to a music sheet.
- Why enter through the roof?
- MY FACE! IT STINGS! NOT THE GLASSES! It's like watching a Leslie Nielsen skit.
- WHAT ARE THE ODDS?!
- So, the thug ponies have a 'surprise', 'biff', and 'punched out' cutie mark.
- [Fanon intensifies]
- Dammit, not you too! I can't watch transcripts for everything!
- I heard that as hate, rather than heat. Still fits, surprisingly.
- Well, her leg's broken and she fails her adventure. BAD END.
- These ponies are very dumb. Also the other ponies are very blind.
- "Especially the clopping!"
- FANON OVERLOAD!
- TRANSCRIPTS ASDGSDGASFGDHFJGFD
- Insecurity relapse, go!
- Stop hitting yourself.
- "DIE, MAIN CHARACTER!"
- Wow. Just. Woooooow.
- "Stupid main characters, who do they think they are?"
- "We can hear you, you know."
- MISTRESS OF DISGUISE!
- Ice burn!
- Dammit Dash if you keep making these faces they'll just be all over the internet.
- Okay Daring Do, you've got this, just fly up and laugh.
- What no don't go fight the cats are you retarded.
- That kick vector is hilarious.
- RD SAVES THE DAY!
- BAD END.
- Touchy feels time!
- Motivation speech time!
- Epic trap time!
- She is not thinking her escape through well enough.
- "Have I mentioned yet that you're a palette swap of me with a different adorable/awesome ratio?"
- "Fine, we can ship later."
- Those tribe-ponies sure have a lack of originality with their cutie marks.
- "Who are those six?"
"Oh, we're just the side characters. Pay no attention to us."
"Kay."
- ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN OF ULTIMATE DESTINY
- Load bearing... Rings? That's a really terrible design plan.
- OBJECTIONNNNNN!
- Wilhelm scream!
- And then countless ponies were buried alive. GOOD END!
- "Okay, shipping time!"
- Oh hey, that's nice of Twilight to make the shared diary emblazoned with a huge logo of just her cutie mark.
- Moral of the episode: Never forget you are a main character.
- That mailpony sure looks un-thrilled to be here.
- And then Dash would be remembered as a literary scrappy.

Now, the latest episode gave us quite a bit of worldbuilding:
1) Aztec/Inca/Mayan ponies are a thing.
2) Daring Do being a real thing (meaning many ponies died horribly across many books).
3) Pinkie Pie defaced half the continent and has infinite amounts of red paint.
4) A new "Region" of Equestria - the "Valley" the events take place within. Along with it, an unmarked "map" of Equestria as they travel through it.
5) A bunch of "canon" events and places and things related to the books. Among them, Quetzalcóatl, which implies the existence of "feathered serpents".
6) The book characters are apparently either far away enough to not know what goes on with A.K. Yearling's  publishing career, or are too oblivious to realize it, or simply ignoring it. Either way, she's dodging quite a few copyright issues and potential ways of having her enemies abuse her writing what is essentially an autobiography.
7) Tails can deflect arrows. Somehow.

Also, this is totally a Brony allusion episode. Very Happy

Random guess: it's nearby and referred to as a valley, could Galloping Gorge be the area where "the Valley" takes place?

The only thing wrong with the map is that that area should be tundra, not jungle, like in the Valley.
