Pony Venting Thread

Latecomer

Just going to do a brief rant about this map from Family Appreciation Day.
At first glance it seems fine, right? Things mostly where they “should” be. OK, maybe it’s silly to put Cloudsdale in one place like that when it moves, but they might not have come up with that idea yet. But then you notice the fatal flaw… the “Everfree Forest”.
The fact that it’s kind of small and on the Canterlot side might be overlooked… but the very story this map is meant to introduce shows the Apple farm (which is presumably those fields next to Ponyville) as directly adjacent to the Everfree - as seen when a certain bold filly wanders past the border seeking seeds. And I’m pretty sure there are many other occasions the farm has been seen to border the forest as well.
So in short… what were they smoking?

Pretty insignificant thing to devote a rant towards but alright. Also, this was early on where they haven’t really thought about how the geography really looks so it’s probably another case of early installment weirdness.

Definitely. And Daring Doubt was a terrible episode to leave her character on. It was total bullshit how we were supposed to believe that Ahuizotl, who tried to murder Daring Do multiple times, was the good guy all along.

I really don’t like it when it comes to a debate, someone brings up a point and someone else presents their side and the other just doesn’t want to acknowledge it and keep doubling down like how much they’re right. I especially really don’t like it when those points keep getting brought up over and over and over again with no variation, like what is it supposed to accomplish? It’s not a game of winning nor changing someone else’s opinion on the subject, if you’re not gonna acknowledge the other side like say “I see your point, but I disagree because XYZ”, then what you’re really doing is just annoying others with your opinions and just souring your reputation. I see it quite a lot here on this site and it’s tiring.

That and his attempt at starting an 800-year heatwave, which would most likely have done irreparable damage to the local ecosystem. Some fans have speculated that it was just a last-ditch attempt at deterring thieves, but that still pegs him as a well-intentioned extremist at best.

For the same reason the Martians in Invader Zim worked themselves into extinction converting the entire planet of Mars into a spaceship: “Because it was cool.”

Counter-Counter Argument: The jungle was already exhibiting those temperatures and the writers were just counting on the audience thinking that a ritual to alter the climate was bad.

If MLP was originally made in Japan, will it could’ve been much better than what we currently have??
My guess is yes, because emotional moments and continuity consistency are what Japanese writers expertise in, while American writers tend to lack that and more used to doing one-shot standalone episodes.

Zipp Dripp!
The biggest thing holding the show back was the “ei” rating in Season One. The show got better as it shed its restrictions, but it was never quite as holistic and structured as it was in Season One.
