Does anyone in here realize how hypocritical and meta this episode is?
"Executives ruin the true artistry of the show"
"Oh like you're doing now, Hasbro?"
I actually love when writers shit on their employer subtly.
What the episode tried to portray was that Rara wasn't authentic, so in the end she learns that she can do fine without all that bullshit on her own.
Real pop stars aren't shit without auto tune, lights and effects.
Kinda like the guy of Owl City. He sings like shit live, but sounds good with edition.
Executive meddling is known to destroy most episodes.
They present a script (A) then the suits present insertion toy bullshit (B) and then the executives made the script how they fucking want (C) so you end with a completely different product.
So no matter how good the writer is, if the executives have shit taste then it is gonna be shit.
>So you don't know you are being sold a toy
Except the whole show is made just for that, so you don't need to even specify it more than just making an episode based around the toy in question.
It is a 20 min ad that just happens to be enjoyable at least. And I would say it is still kinda popular just because it is a breathe of fresh air in a market that is mostly filled with sex and violence.
How can any of you stand watching this show anymore?! Can anyone explain this?
I try to watch this show, and I can't stand watching a single episode anymore. And every time I do, I need a weeks recovery before watching another one, because of how BAD they are. It sucks now!
This is NOT the show I grew to love!!
Had to delete the comment. Too many typos
Some of the episodes are still good. I loved 'Do Princesses Dream', for example. The wonderment of the plot, the mysticism of Luna's dream power explored, Anderson's fucking FANTASTIC work on the score; everything about that episode threw me right back into Season One.
And then I come here and see mindless bronies praising the finale and shit like ep 100, and reality comes kicking it's ugly way back into my head. Waifus killed MLP. Waifus AND Hasbro, but mostly waifus.
>Waifus killed the show
Hasbro was gonna introduce more toys anyway eventually. Otherwise the show would have died.
But most of the time now, I wish it had died.
Everything that rises has to fall.
Any time they are in a vehicle of any kind it is selling a toy. Writers are just good at covering it up.
I don't mind toy inserts much because the writers and directors have talent and don't stress over putting them in.
>" There weren't any typos in the first post. The only change made was your excision of the last 'anymore'."
Goddammit. Thought I deleted that part.
True, no typos. it's fucking hard to type and see what you're doing in a fucking mobile.
The finale was shit. Twilight, with all her knowledge of magic, did fuck all except levitate things and shoot lasers. She flies down to catch Spike the second time he falls, instead of just catching him with magic like she did the FIRST time he fell, all because they needed to show off her pretty princess wings.
Glimmer, after all that build-up, turned out to be a dumb bitch with a dumb issue. She could have been a legit villain with a legitimate reason to be megalomaniacal, but what do we get? "Oh teh noes, muh bes frien left me when I was a kid and never wrote me or anything!" It was hackneyed and shoved-in, and the whole thing ended up feeling like they wrote themselves into a corner as far as Starlight was concerned. I'm not even going to mention how fucking dumb the whole redemption angle with her was. Others have expounded upon that far better than I ever could.
Ikr? Jesus, is hardly a show worthy of all the praise it used to get.
Tried sitting through season 1 again, and it's painful to see the resplendent quality the show had. It's beauty lied in it's simplicity. And it pains me to see how horrible it all turns out in the next seasons.
>She was just blown away.
So you don't consider being forcibly ejected from an area "punishment"?
And I don't bring up the comics. Their stories don't mesh with the show's canon, they are never referenced in the show, and their writing is typically garbage, with a select few exceptions.
If we could get off, then we wouldn't be posting.
You can try, but you will be back.
The best staff members left when Faust did, or just got around to it recently.
Renzetti left. Larson's on the way out. A.K.R.'s wit da Mouse nao. In another year, the team is going to be nothing but hack writers from shows like Johnny Test, and McCarthy desperately trying to fill shoes that are too big for her.
It's cute how you think "Faustfag" should be an insult.
Holy fuck, you're right...
The beauty of it all lied on it's simplicity.
How could I've forgotten that?
I miss my mortal wingless adorkable waifu. I'll never get over it.
>Implying the Rarity's canterlot boutique episodes weren't more anti-hasbro
>Rarity: "I want to give it a really posh name"
>Whatever her name was: "I CALL IT THE PRINCESS DRESS!"
Like you couldn't get any more obvious.
Also it is i cripple chan.
And we don't want an echochamber either, anon.
Balance is the key.
It would be nice though if there was a way to get rid of the shilling and if mods actually cared, but can't win em all.
I remember that episode. I was thinking about what a whiny talentless cunt in denial Rarity is.
In a scene Fluttershy shows a great looking dress design and Raritiy goes "eww" then the end result looks nothing like the original design and somehow Fluttershy ignores this.
That one felt less about Hasbro interference and more about hack artists who refuse to admit their wrongs. But obviously from the biased vjewpoint of Rarity. Or rather Vancouver hipsters.
I don't think suited for sucess/dressed for failure was Faust or Hasbro's idea, but it was Dhx Media's premise because they're from Vancouver.
And in Canada if you're considered an artist, even a street artist then you don't hafe to pay taxes.
Reminds me a bit of LPS where every character is a hack artist who keeps trying to git gud and finally they end up being decent at it(albeit not talented.)
You mean the one where Fluttershy listed off a whole bunch of shit that didn't make any god damned sense?
Fluttershy's point was about customers/executive who think they know more than you, but in reality don't know shit. For example her big fashion rant about what was wrong with the dress was actually total gibberish. Everything she said made no sense if you actually knew the terminology she was using.
Why can't the executives just fuck off? For at least a few episodes?
I unserstand some executive meddling... but religiously ruining every single script for over a 100 episodes? That already goes beyond ignorant asshole and into obsessive sociopath who needs to get his balls cut off.
They modified that one kid's script. The one with Fluttershy taming Discord.
Originally in it Discord was suppose to carry a mind control amulet around his neck at all times which limits his powers and makes him obedient.
With that amulet he wouldn't act like a retard who instantly turns everything to chaos the moment he gets released.Which also meant that there was no more Discord/Flutter shipping fuel due to no more abusive husband bullshit.
Whoever modified the script sabotaged the episode's execution.
Also that seems like a shitty idea in the first place
Which makes it infinitely dumber and more illogical because Hasbro Studios is horrible at jewing properly. The marketing executives are stereotypical suits who considers their audience mildly retarded. Which in reality means the executives are projecting their insecurities and autism on the audience.
If it was about the money then they would have hired some real talent and tried to turn MLP into the next Pokemon before the hype weared off.
Instead they shot themselves in the foot and ignorantly declared themselves the winners over being dumb.
Hasbro is the biggest wannabe-jew since Sony.
Disney is a real jew company that managed to turn hack artists such as Miley Cyrus and the Jonas brothers into famous and adored pop singers.
Hasbro's employers would have probably fired Miley, grabbed the microphone and started singing themselves. "fuck your lightning in a bottle, I can make my own lightning in a bottle, see?"
Because Hasbro in reality is a stereotypical fat insecure landwhale full of arrogance, denial and mental retardation, which destroys herself out of an immature stupidity that rivals 90s saturday morning villains.

I'm sad that nobody made how this episode should've really ended.
>Manehattan concert hall
>Tons of groupie waiting for days
>"We are sorry but the countess won't perform today, or ever"
>"Some redneck in a backward town convinced her to return to her old musical ways."
Cue Applejack being chased by a horde of teenage girls who ruined their star.
Pretty much how it'd finish here.
