Best season 2 episode yet, thanks for the help.
MLP is really impacting on my personal art style. My forum game is going to look great.

So apparently the conversion of Bronies is much easier than I first thought it was going to be. Acidbomb113 and myself have been schem- planning to start the process of introduction to MLP.

It's actually quite funny to think that moments b4 I was converted, I never saw it coming.
But now, I have a chance to record it! with technology!
Out of curiosity, have any of you "converted" somepony?

Two of my best friends, actually. Though they're casual fans rather than fanbois like moi.

If you read the "Fortress is Magma" thread over at Bay12, you'll see I've converted a few. It was funny. If you read the "Who is Necro910", then read the pony fortress thread at Bay12, you see my entire transformation from average internet user to brony. I had no outside knowledge of FiM prior to the threads, and I accepted it pretty good.

Probably because Girlinhat introduced it to me as a dystopia

My coworker. We had shared confusion over the show's popularity. Then I was brought into the herd, and at first, I felt I couldn't say anything. Then he caught me humming one of the songs at work (probably Winter Wrap Up or Art of the Dress), and asked me what it was from. I explained, and he thought it was funny, and was skeptical when I suggested he give it a try. I kept on suggesting watching a few episodes whenever he asked me (jokingly) about it, and he finally said he might try if he was reaaaallllly bored.

Two weeks later, he had caught up to the second season, and now waits for Saturday like the rest of us.

I'm trying to find out how to go about getting a shirt and hoodie printed with a certain pair of images. White zipper hoodie, black t-shirt. Guess what the images are.

One is probably your avatar but I dunno what the other is~



Also my fanfiction reached 12000 words. Almost done... but that seems long. And it's just the goddamn introduction chapter!

If it were me, they'd probably be a stylized orange-yellow sun on white and a crescent moon against a dark cloud on black.

BEST COMEDY EPISODE

PERIOD



PS: Diamond Tiara is acting scarily like she does in my fanfiction (well not her exactly but...). I swear I wrote all that before this episode aired.

THIS.


The scene with Big Mac and Applejack being angry with the CMC was amazing. Such a simple way to play with expectations, yet so awesome.

It probably is unhealthy, but my first exposure to FiM was through a certain piece of fanfiction that everyone's afraid of. Inexplicably. I found it great reading, especially with fitting music.

At the time I've beed reading about DF in places but haven't actually mustered up the courage to try it. And after I'd watched the show and found it good, I heard that there's a DF conversion mod. Cue STRIKE THE EARTH.

Now that it's finished, actually commentary!

Spoiler:
Holy fuck this episode was awesome.

Nitpicks:
I honestly don't have many. Just little stuff like usual:
- Modern camera? The old ones not work?
- Quite a bit of holding things with hooves. Normally not a big deal but seemed especially prevalent.
- Not particularly emotionally charged? Hardly a criticism, since the comedy was so good. I mean, I've long said the comedy in FiM is mediocre, and this episode's comedy won me over big time. After Hurricane Fluttershy it might be a disappointment for some, I guess.



Good stuff:
EVERYTHING ELSE. Some notable junk:
- Rainbow Dash's hooficure.
- Big Mac. Just Big Mac.
- Diamond Tiara was awesomely villainy. Fun without being ridiculous.
- Lack of over the top ridiculousness in general (though it heavily skirts it). No relying on cartoon physics or other things that don't make sense to make a joke, with only a couple exceptions (Fluttershy's river of tears comes to mind)
- Confirming quite a bit of my headcanon (ponies have fur coats, and not colored skin. Scootaloo can't fly).
- I WILL DESTROY HER!


I loved this one. I don't usually say stuff like this, but anyone who thinks Lesson Zero or one of the other poster boy comedy episodes more than this is wrong. In my worthless opinion, anyway!

New episode:
Spoiler:
O-hum. Well... I'm not going to say it was "the best episode ever" or "best episode this season", but... really, at the very least it was the most well-rounded and solid episode focusing on the CMC in this whole show (Cutie Mark Chronicles discounted, because it was about the others' cutie marks, not the CMCs'). Continuity abound, solid humor, and very few nitpicks (most prominently newspapers held with hooves, but tactile telekinesis has long been a fanon staple, and works very well with newspapers). Pinkie Pie seemingly reading a newspaper underwater was ridiculous, but so very in-character. AJ and Big Mac line reversal was brilliant. Twilight having canon forcefields more or less fills me with joy, or at least a joy-equivalent. Lack of over-the-top idiocy definitely earned the episode a pile of extra points. If I had a tier ranking system, this one would be First Tier, skirting the border to Top Tier. (like any good programmer, I begin all arrays with zero)

Keep 'em coming, Studio B! That's four good to great episodes in a row, you've got one more and the two-part finale left, don't let up!

The closest I've gotten to cupcakes is still frames from that old animated version.


Well and people talking about it, so I know exactly what it's about and how it goes. Dunno how much that counts, though.

I checked it out and jumped right to the "best" parts, to quickly get the general idea. I dont really have stomach for that stuff but curiosity is strong in this one. Now off to watch the ep!!

EDIT: It was Dsarker who made me do it, with it in his signature or something like that. You cant resist when you see the link in pony thread you check out 10 times a day. Oh those were the days...
