MLP:FIM S5E13 - "Do Princesses Dream..." - Grading & Discussion

Episode Title: "Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?"
Air Date: July 11th, 2015, 11:30 AM Eastern Time (3:30 PM GMT/UTC)

Summary: "Princess Luna enlists the Mane 6 to help her track down the Tantabus, a magical force that threatens to turn everypony in Equestria's dreams into nightmares."

Live Streams:
HaxMega
BronyState Theaters
Brony Network
Equestria TV
Otaku Ascended

REMEMBER: DO NOT POST OPEN SPOILERS UNTIL AFTER 9:00 PM ET (1 AM UTC/GMT)

=-

Ruminations:
Tantabus? What's that?! It doesn't sound good whatever it is, because it's up to Princess Luna and the Mane 6 to save everypony from their own nightmares! This one sounds really interesting, and I hope it is, because it will be the last episode before the 3 month season 5 hiatus. That's right, after this one we're not seeing new episodes until October.

Soak it in, folks. It's going to have to last.

As much as it's great to have a Luna episode and focusing on her dreamwalker status without the CMC's...3 months?

Discovery Family done fucked up. 11 months wait, multiple gaps, dropping figures as people don't know when the show is on, poor advertising in general and now this?

Get your shit together!

Three months?


We also have a summer season... if I didn't know better... I'd say they're trying to kill the series...

I heard something about that online, even though I don't watch the show. I can't understand the logic between starting a season and then stopping it for three months.

The Discovery channel bought back the portion of the network they donated to create the Hub giving them 60% share/control and bringing all the series over to Discovery Family.

So they're shoving them in anywhere they have room, Littlest Pet Shop is getting it's second chopped up season just like this and it's hurting it too, but the show is still going.

I'm seeing claims of this being done to have 13 episode blocks with less waiting in between, and EQG movies to tide people over in the fall of each year.

But yeah, they've done all this, and I was just reading the SDCC report tonight on the MLP panel, they spoiled the plot of the season finale to everyone attending in the audience, well sort of. Just the tease of the first half but it's enough.

The seasons quality is way up, their handling of it, is abismal however.

They've done it with other shows. But I really hope this isn't an attempt to kill it...

Honestly, Discovery Family has really put on some lame programming...

It isn't. Hasbro consider this series their cashcow and are prioritising it over it's other franchises now. Some are complaining a little too much as Transformers is being left behind in development.

Discovery Family just don't care, it looks like they thought The Hub wasn't making enough money and took back their half, not caring how it affected anything brought over in the requisition.

I doubt there's anything Hasbro can really do about it, right now, either. Which means Discovery Family has put everyone over a barrel.

Yup, but we know that Hasbro have no intention of stopping now and have at least 2-3 years more work to produce.

We just have to hope DF get their asses in gear and clear their schedule better over the next year.

On a related note, SDCC has been dropping masses of spoilers for the second half of the season, Hasbro is running the booth, so this is probably them trying to keep us hooked by letting us have something we wouldn't have normally.

They do care, they just can't do much about it.

So, the answer to the question in the title is apparently no.

I loved the dream sequences - Big Mac as a princess, giant Derpy, super hero Spike riding Derpy, Fluttershy dreaming of being a pet, giant monster Angel and Scootaloo slightly... overcompensating.

Also, was Lyra's and BonBon's delight at being fused together a compensation for all the shippers who surely were disappointed by them just being best friends in the 100th episode?

I agree that Luna creating something that would give her nightmares is very disconcerting and I would have liked the resolution to be less rushed.

^SDCC hinted more LyBon stuff is coming up, that Lyra is starting to show her feelings now.

And yeah. Tantibus is literally latin for nightmare, she brought one of her own nightmares to life to punish her. Maybe using the spell from Luna Eclipsed.
