MLP:FiM 3x01/2 "The Crystal Empire" Parts 1 and 2 Grading

Well it's been a long few months since the Season 2 finale but we're under 24 hours to the start of Season 3.

Since there have been a lot of promo videos and images some of you have probably already seen at least half of the first episode but until it airs, no spoilers please.

Same as before, join in the livestream or catch up on youtube, discuss, grade and let's see how this new season shapes up.

Also, yay Luna

Looking forward to it! First time watching live - assuming I can get into a working stream...

Have avoided all clips and trailers since the SDCC songs, but, annoyingly, have been getting spoiled for character appearances.

Yeah they went overboard with promotional material this time, but a lot of people have been avoiding them, so probably not going to see much discussion here until tomorrow afternoon.

10am EST, 7am PST for USA, 3pm GMT for Europe

Yay! New Pony!

Yes, I am looking forward to Season 3. Like many others, I have tried my hardest to avoid spoilers, even as Hasbro has been pushing more and more episode material (stop that!).

Moar Mane Six! Moar Background Ponies! Moar New Ponies!

Bring it on!

Quick question: Is it one episode this week and one next week, or are they showing Part 1 & Part 2 together, like they did with the Season 2 finale?

As the title says they're doing a twofer, parts 1 and 2 back to back with a longer commercial break inbetween at most.

Then it's episodes 3-10 one a week with possible breaks for the holidays then 11/12 finale.

So much freaking Luna. That's the part of the 8 minute clip that totally won me over. That and the overall hints that Celestia has some kind of Cylon Plan for Twilight's life. That should be interesting – can't wait to see if they wrap it all up in this two-parter or if it's some kind of season-long story arc.

Sigh. The BronyState aspect ratio is all messed up again. Why can they never get it right?

Spy Pinkie Pie!

There have been so many brilliant little character moments so far.

It's been crashing, lagging, de-syncing, etc on me all episode, it was never this bad during season 2.

I'm in Skype with my brony group watching too and they're having a range of problems too so it's not just me, a lot of the chat rooms have failed altogether.

I switched to HaxMega. There's a few lags but it's not that bad. Plus the aspect ratio is correct.
