Nice going!
@Jarkes
That’s right, I hadn’t thought of that. Though I suppose Spoiled Rich wasn’t even thought of at that point.

I feel that it complements that moment. DT clearly has good reason to be afraid of her mother.

@Magma_ERuptiOn

It might be a case where the kinder fandom version of babs has shown up so much that I think of her more than how she actually was in the episode.

I think DT might have been more afraid of the ’teaming up with Babs’ part of the story, and less about the bullying part.

Plus I get the impression Spoiled is just looking for a reason to bully her daughter.

well, it did… it now lacks the energy and dynamics that Friendship Is Magic has, but it certainly is thousands of millions of miles kilometers better than it was with the first three movies. I mean, come on, like, how the fuck did Sunset go from heartless barbarian to brooding crybaby in just mere seconds? and why was she let off the hook for all her crimes even though the damage she’s caused still lingers?! I still don’t get it… maybe Applejack should’ve be the leader of the HuMane Six; I see her as the intelligent, hard-working person she really is — too bad DHX made her play the Idiot Ball in EqG 1… why the fucking hell would they make her so stupid and useless? and Sunset shouldn’t be the genius and leader McCarthy and Ruddel made her out to be — lest we forget, she was as dumb as bricks in EqG 1 for crying out loud! it’s like all of a sudden she’s a Jane of All Trades because she so happens to be an author’s pet. that role should’ve gone to AJ, not a brainwashed puppet! I swear, EqG is just probably a long-running cruel joke that Hasbro and DHX are pulling on us for all the FIM Rule 34 out there in the world (humanized and otherwise). okay… I’m done now, I swear.


@Jarkes
the message of that episode basically is “don’t stand up to bullying, ’cause if you do, you’re no better than the bullies themselves.” I mean, what the hell?

@Spinny
yeah! bad ol’ Babs Seed is just as deplorable and cringeworthy as the other beloved neighborhood bully, Bacon Girl.

i always just thought eg was an underwhelming concept. fim’s first theatrical movie and it’s just a high school girl drama with a touch of fantasy salted on top. really not a bad film, but just a bad concept i think. i don’t think it’s unreasonable to be disappointed that the first fim movie was a high school au.

@gingerninja666
it’s really nothing to do with babs herself. the episode has a moral that is objectively bad, to the point of actually being offensive: "standing up to a bully is wrong; tell your parents instead". then it outright contradicts it’s own ham-handed moral in the end by having the parent do nothing to stop the bullying, and have someone solve it by standing up to the bully.

Sunset is best girl
@DiscipleOfAndrewRyan
and why was she let off the hook for all her crimes


SHE WASN’T! she not only had to fix the damage to the front of the school when she blasted it but she was despised by the inter student body and even the humane 5 didn’t trust her.

even though the damage she’d caused still lingers?


DA FUCK ARE YOU EVEN TALKING ABOUT!?

Applejack being the main character of anything was a good enough joke to get a laugh out of me

huh? I don’t remember Applejack being a background human in EqG… O_O okay, maybe she is — but that’s because Sunset hijacked the HuMane Five’s spotlights. they’re practically her episodic sidekicks. ¬_¬

really? I thought Sunset was responsible for bringing magic to the human world and subsequently causing a lot of mayhem along the way… @~@

Actually I think he is right about this. The geodes were only found after the first movie, so I think they are a consequence of something they did. And though it might well be Sci-Twi’s breaking of reality, that was only possible because of the harmony she took from the humane five, who only had that harmony because… Sunset.

But I’m not sure that’s quite evidence to send Sunset to the chopping block. All the main characters have done something incredibly stupid and dangerous, especially the sparkle unicorns.
