Re: MLP:FiM 3x03 "Too Many Pinkie Pies"

Man, these threads are slow this season. Where's Count Zero? Wanderlust? The various Brians?

Anyway, watching it a third time. It seems difficult to credit that that Pinkie has never had to choose between activities before. What, this is only now becoming a problem?

It's good to have fresh pony again.

Re: MLP:FiM 3x03 "Too Many Pinkie Pies"

Although it didn't have as many laugh-out-loud moments as, say "Lesson Zero," nor was it as epic as "The Crystal Empire," the episode was wonderful in a different way--after watching it a second time, I realized I was smiling almost the entire episode: I love a show that can make me do that!

First off, Andrea Libman did a spectacular job! I must imagine that was a fun one to record!

I saw that Dave Polsky wrote this one, and he wrote another favorite Pinkie episode of mine, "Feeling Pinkie Keen."

There was so much wonderful energy in this episode, and lots of great little gags throughout: the orange animals, the older-style Pinkie Pie, Rainbow calling out Pinkie for breaking the laws of physics (Pinkie Pie for Chief Engineer? :P) and more.

I liked that it was an ensemble slice-of-life episode with many great character touches from the Mane 6 (Rainbow Dash reading Daring-Do, Twilight training with magic, Fluttershy with the "neck-break" bear, and of course Rarity dressing up).

I loved all of the hyper Pinkies and their quirks (like the wrong names) and the ending act was quite clever, with lots of rapid-fire gags throughout. It was also nice to see a "traditional" ending with the letter, something not seen in a few episodes.

I enjoyed it quite a bit, so it gets a solid A from me.

So far, like Season 2, Season 3 is off to a great start. Looking forward to what's next!

I probably have to turn in my Brony card now but I totally forgot about there being a new episode yesterday until I returned from a party this morning. I've only now watched the episode.

Well, I must say that I'm not that big a fan of Pinkie Pie, at least in larger doses, and I find her hyperactive happiness very disconcerting. So I guess I can't fully enjoy such a Pinkie-heavy episode.
I knew that so many Pinkies would wreak havoc although I suspected a tad bit more apocalypse. I also agree with others in the thread about the other ponies not recognising that sad and meta Pinkie was the real one. Then again, we don't know what the other Pinkies were all saying and the real Pinkie wasn't sure whether she was the real one, either, so it's understandable that the others wouldn't be sure, either.

I loved the idea of making them literally watch paint dry and I loved all the little gags in that sequence (the horror about the fingers was a nice touch, too). The animation of the false Pinkies going poof was hilarious and I expect that to show up as part of a meme.

Others have already mentioned the small character moments. Considering the focus on the many Pinkies this episode worked really well as an ensemble piece.

Still, I'd give it a B. It was enjoyable but not great.

And yet again Derpy is missing. Last weeks apparent sighting was either shopped or wrong. So she hasn't made an appearance yet, that's not encouraging.
On the other hand we got two Doctor Whooves in the crowd in front of Twilight's library.

Nah. I'm with you on that one, actually, She's a little much. Though oddly given that I'm as not fond of her as a character, I've come to enjoy Pinkie-focused episodes quite a bit. Maybe because they're consistently entertaining after a season 2 that gave us a number of misfires from usually reliable characters like Rainbow Dash and Twilight.

I think they missed a chance to distinguish the clones from each other by having them reflect different aspects of Pinkie's personality. There could have been the hyper one, the grumpy one, the sad one and so forth which would have made it harder to tell who was who. We of course would know because the real one is the only Pinkie who feels bad for her friends rather than for herself.

That's why this is only B episode for me – it was really good, but it feels like a premise that could have supported so much more if the writers had only gone there.

I'm not sure that means anything – it's basically the same art style they used for the generic ponies in the "Hurricane Fluttershy" educational film.

Re: MLP:FiM 3x03 "Too Many Pinkie Pies"

That's what I thought was happening with the first clone. It was too hyper and the real Pinkie became calmer and more serene, I thought she'd split into manic and normal halves and that the others would do something similar.

Edit: Ahh, it's just after last weeks Best Sisters Play thing I was wondering.

The resemblance is uncanny, though. I knew the Applejack pic reminded me of something.

I think Gep's right though, looks a good bit more like the old reel ponies.
