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

Yeah it's running smoother, for like the last four minutes of it.

Good episode but I think they looked cuter before they went glowy again.

Yeah, I'm using HaxMega too - not had any problems (aside from the crash about four minutes before the episode started!)

Surprised by the immediate start of part 2 - guess the Hub runs its commercials a bit differently to channels over here...

I know, people figured that out two weeks ago, but it's for the kids you know?

And would it kill them to just, lift the fake heart and take it indoors? really?

Although, Appledash and Flutterdash inside two minutes

Oh, I see how this is going to go... Twi must confront her fears to claim the heart?

Although, a bit concerned about her using that dark magic.

Damn, shit just got real. Dark magic Twilight and angry hallucination Celestia? Yes, please.

ETA: oh. Well that was anticlimactic.

Huh, an actual Crystal Heart, ok. Also Rainbow is really getting on my nerves with her casual disregard for her friends that started in season 2.

I may be lambasting the characters for not seeing it, but I'm actually on board with the idea. It's a more interesting development than having the crystal heart be an actual macguffan. At least this way, it's character-driven.

Also, that's Frank Welker, aka Megatron, as Sombra, isn't it?

Yeah, was expecting a bit more out of that.

Still, adorkable Twilight is adorkable.

Meh, it was fine. But was anyone else a little concerned with Tia's remark about 'self sacrifice' when we know she's manipulating her?

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

Huh, the commentators mentioned something there, all the crystal ponies we see are Earth ponies, but when the mane6 temporarily change, only Cadance is anything other than an Earth pony, all the horns and wings disappear.

Twilight looks adorable in her crystal form though but they did call Cadance the 'crystal princess', only she could activate the heart, it restores her, turns her first, and she stays an Alicorn. So there's some connection to her there alright.

That was a lot of fun. Hopefully back to slice of life stuff next week, though - my concern is that the show might start going towards the adventure-type stories a bit too much. The suggestion of a season arc points a little in that direction.
