I just re-watched episode 21 (Over a Barrel), I didn't realize it before but it's potentially one of the best episodes period.

May or may not watch more depending on how stuck for things to do I find myself.
In similar fashion to what everyone else is basically saying, Pinkie Pie is probably the biggest mind changer of a character so quickly in a show I've ever seen. I hated her in the intro. She was like nails on a chalkboard. But then on episode 5 (Gilda), she starts becoming more likable, then slowly she progresses getting better through 9 (Zecora ep) and 15 (Pinkie Keen) was the finalizing of her being my favorite. It happens to everyone.

As for your prediction about Apple Dash... you're close. I don't know how you'd get that out of the first two episodes, but there are indeed at least 2 episodes that are completely centered around the two of them.

As for what my friend said. I agree with your conclusion, ABL/Muyo. I didn't argue back at the time as it wasn't an argument or viewpoint I even saw coming, so I was pretty stuck on how to react. All I could say is "I enjoy the show because fuck, it's a good show", and his reply would simply be "That's fine, but you like the show because the internet does." I'm not entirely sure if he was trying to say the internet is how I found the show or if I like it only because the internet likes it, too, as he wasn't being very clear and often times his argument seemed to be the latter.

Anyhow, I suppose it's irrelevant. I guess this means I have to tone down the pony talk around them.

Pinkie Pie is indeed growing on me (still not a Rarity fan though). The theme tune is really annoying, and Spikes habit of humming it makes it hard to avoid. This is actually alright though. Gives me something to do when I can't sleep at three in the morning anyways.

They seemed to be the only two characters who had significant interaction with anyone other than Twilight Sparkle in the opening two parter, with each other. No specific moments come to mind now because I have a terrible memory for detail and was loltired when I watched it, but yeah.

Good stream is working well. BronyState was just destroyed. There were thousands of people in each room, I'm pretty sure. Way too much to handle I'd imagine. Man.... I feel bad for Sneezey

Alright.
Spoiler: show
So, Flutterjerk was awesome. That tail whip and the way she kicked Pinkie... hilarious.

Pinkie's reaction to the chocolate rain was great, and how she was just like "Hey, twilight... yo dawg... you really ought to let Discord stay, this rain is fantastic!" I loved every second of it.

Discord is potentially one of the greatest villains ever. He's so... sinister.


They nailed this episode. It was so good. I really do feel like it's already one of the best. I can't wait until next week. I was really hoping for a one hour part one special, but... oh well =/

Also, I've decided already this could be seen as a great introductory episode. It just has every single element of the show everyone absolutely loves in it.

Yeah, I think everyone got disappointed pretty hard by the promise of a one-hour pony block and then... ):

Actual spoilery thoughts:

Spoiler: show
Oh my God the personality flips were amazing. Liar!AJ is HILARIOUS, I hope we get to see more of her! I hope mean!Fluttershy doesn't completely overwhelm us as the one breakout meme there (though I have a feeling it will), because I think liar!AJ has amazing potential for jokes.

Also did you guys notice how quick Rarity was to give up her umbrella to Twilight, despite what she'd just said about refusing to come out from under it? Generosity! <3 I just thought that was a really sweet unspoken touch.


Edit: deo, you're right, but at the same time I think the stuff I mentioned up there ---^ would be kind of lost on brand-new viewers. It's got such an impact on us because we know and love these ponies already. Like, when I went back and watched the first episode of season 1 again, I felt way more involved in it because I'd developed more of an attachment to the characters. But yeah, it was a great episode, and definitely not too similar to season 1 like I was worried about!

Man right after the cut when Applejack is looking at the pool that supposedly shows the future, my mind plotted out "Okay, here's what's going to happen- At the end of the maze Applejack is going to be asked what she saw in the pool, and then she'll be forced to either tell the truth and risk startling the group, or lie and violate her element of harmony! This is one hell of a sticky situation facing our pony crew now... Then it was entirely different!

My personal prediction is that Celestia mentioned Luna multiple times in the opening for a reason and she will have some role to play before this episode is done. What that role is though I don't have the faintest idea

Man I can't wait for episode 2, it's going to drive me insane.

I'm wondering where the CMCs are right now and if we'll see them again before the two-parter is over - were they just a framing device to introduce Discord, or was it some kind of foreshadowing? In any case, I love their squabbling, it was just perfect. xd

But yeah, I imagine the fans will be out for blood if Luna doesn't put in an appearance here to help the situation.


I was a late starter on season 1, so there was no suspense/forced wait then and this cliffhanger is just murder on me. D: I could've waited an extra week and watched them one after the other, sure, but at least this way I get the comfort of the community's impatience and no spoilers. xd

I imagine Luna will make an appearance some point during S2, but Faust said they didn't originally have her in the show the remainder of S1 because the EI guidelines were incredibly strict and since Luna is associated with night, kids might automatically assume she's evil even though she's good. Weird, I know. Also, Zecora was supposed to be a mentor to twilight, and then that fell apart, too...


Spoiler: show
But I hope maybe Luna will help out. She was mentioned by Celestia, after all, for the first time since last season opener.

As for the CMC's, I think they're role for the opener is done. They were supposed to fight and wake up Discord, plot device, etc. I'd like to see them come back and help or something simply because I love them, but I doubt it will happen.

Agreed on Luna. Or it's just foreshadowing that FINALLY Luna will be a character for the duration of s2 and not ignored continuously. Also, your prediction about AJ was slightly like mine at the time, although when I first saw what was happening, I thought she was just going to start feeling untrusting of the group or get angry and not help. Then Discord hypnotized her and she couldn't stop lying.
I loved every aspect of this episode. Everyone turned the opposite of their element. Except Twilight. Discord can't do much with that, can he? Opposite of magic... he already took her horn. He's kind of dumb for not hynotizing her, too, it's going to be her that fixes it all, obviously.


Also, yeah, ABL, you're right. I was just saying that coming off the high of the episode is all. :P

edit: holy shit, someone caught this from the Chocolate Rain lyrics. I never knew the words, but this is apparently actually in the song...
Spoiler: show

Chocolate Rain

Makes the best of friends begin to fight

Chocolate Rain

But did they know each other in the light?
