I really don't think his role was ever that large in the first place. You can literally take him out of any of the movies and practically nothing would change.

I'm surprised at how some people think that Dash was being disrespectful of her friends when trying to imitate them. The whole point of these scenes is that Rainbow Dash was trying to get the Thunderbolts to think she was awesome. What could be more flattering to her friends than to see her turn to them for inspiration?

I actually agree with that. Though, they claim the fanbase doesn't influence the show, some minor things do.

Notice, how Flash Sentry's role diminished in the newer EqG movies? (Probably, due to fan hate of him, or the current show runners trying to respect Faust's old mandate that the mane 6 can't have boyfriends. Though, I think they never planned on making FlashLight canon anyways, and were just going to tease it.)

I hear originally, it was going to, but they were afraid it'd make her look bad, (considering Spike's feelings about her, it probably would have angered fans) so they replaced her with AJ instead.

Ironically, because of that Rarity was the only main character to not get an ep' in Season 3.

To be fair, Dashie has let her ego, and stuff 'cause her to do dumb things before, but she's still a kind person/pony.

I actually liked "Spike at your Service," despite it's issues, but from what I recall, Rarity wasn't really in it much. Are we thinking of the same ep'?

Funny thing is the closest ep' to being one I hated was last year's "Scare Master," but I haven't really met anyone else who disliked it.

To this day, I still have no real problem with "The Mysterious Mare-Do-Well" or even "Princess Spike." I'm still not even sure why either are hated so much, though I can grasp the root problems.

The only episode I truly didn't like, was "Spike at your Service." The chance of a lifetime to see Spike treat Rarity like a Queen, but realize that it's maybe not the best idea. Also, Rarity learning that taking advantage of Spike's kindness and goodwill isn't good either. Complete and utter waste of an episode and it's premise. The only bits that I watch the episode for are Twi being adorkable (because duh) and the whole bit at Rarity's place. The rest can go straight to Hell.

So honestly, an episode (or two) where Rainbow Dash acts like a fucking moron? Hardly an issue. Besides, she's a cocky bitch and watching her get tossed under a bus makes for good TV.

I actually thought it was funny & cute personally. I'm quite surprised this new ep' is so hated. I actually liked it.

@TheAntiCat
That's pretty much my attitude too. I understand some blind-overly-positive-fanboyism iare annoying, but I also find it annoying that whenever you don't hate an episode like "Newbie Dash," people then assume you're some blind "Hasdrone," or something, or that you're attacking them, just because you say you liked the ep'. It's like being back in 2013 again with all the Season 3/Twilicorn/EqG drama again. They act like any positivity is a bad thing. (And vice-versa.)

I've been accused of both being "too positive," or "too negative" oddly. (Though, I'm generally mostly positive about the show.)

@Power-Up&Sky-Blue
Please make it happen bronies. It would be a funny parody ofthe newest ep'.

I never said they can't have an opinion different from mine nor that they can't express them. I love reading comments around these parts. It can be fun and oddly inspiring. I'm specifically talking about the minority screaming the loudest, no matter how many good explanations are put forth. They don't want consolation, they want validation that the show is going down the drain.

I don't get caught up in an overly positive or negative hive-mind. I watch this show as it's intended: for entertainment. If something pops up that doesn't jive with me, I repeat the MST3K mantra: It's just a show, I should really just relax.

I guess I shouldn't assume that everyone has worked a shitty job or two where asshattery similar to the Wonderbolts behavior is normal and expected. Working a construction job during a Southern California Summer with a bunch of drunk Mexicans will toughen you up. The upside is finding where the good taco shops are. ;)

@RIG
The two are not mutually exclusive. Something being cringey can also be funny to some degree; have you ever heard of cringe comedy? Of course, if such comedy fails, the result is worse than being boring…. It is a risky type of comedy, for certain.

@TheAntiCat
While you probably can safely ignore the people "screaming that the downfall of the series has come", that doesn't mean that there won't ever be a bad episode or that the people who don't like an episode don't have a point or reason. Princess Spike, for example, was widely disliked for clear missteps in writing (the moral is to not abuse power; Spike only caused problems before he started doing that). Don't get caught up in an overly positive hive mind; it isn't good for you or anyone else. Learn why people dislike it before dismissing them. It will be dumb, sometimes, for certain, but people often have reasons that are at least somewhat valid.

In this case, much of the dislike stems from people not understanding how pilots get call-signs in real life (they aren't ever positive), or the real life military and how it operates in general. It's kind of dumb, but very understandable; most people aren't in the military and know little about it, and fewer still know about pilots.
