It's incredibly cute, J! They're really adding in our favorite backgrounders... and even some to surprise us... or did no one else see Flash last episode?

Yeah, I saw Flash Sentry. I wonder if they're going to do something with his character, or whether it was just a nod to the movie? This was probably animated around the time the movie was out.

Probably a nod. He kind of took a bow before he got back in Cadance's train.

I'm not sure of how other fans feel, but I like Flash Sentry.

Everything with Pinkie felt like good old season 1 and I loved that. We got more Derpy and even Mjolna returned in the flashback, the final song and party are great, evoked a lot of the good old days of pony.

But Rainbow Dash ditching her friends for a third time in as many episodes felt very off, the mane6 doing the same was bad, and Weird Al as much as I may like his own work, really colossally miss-fired for me in this episode. He was shoe-horned in so badly, took over the whole damn episode, created so much hype, etc that it just ruined the episode for me.

Really wish they hadn't done this.

Not the best of the season, still it is a solid B / A-. Fun episode, very Season 1 in feel.
I will never understand some of you guys. It's been straight A's all season in these threads, even for the shitty episodes, and now, suddenly, it's not, even though this was cetainly no worse than anything else this season. Mooooving on....

Anyway, it worked for me. There was some emotion with this one. Cheese's secret at the end was very touching.

Also good: Ponyville finally felt like a real, thriving town again for the first time this season. Really good and effective songs, too.

Plus the live action shots? WHAT THE FUCK (IN A GOOD WAY.)

The not-so-good: too much modern technology again at the party. More human poses and hoof-hands. Sigh. I guess that's something I'll have to learn to live with.

The great: DERPY! And adorable filly Derpy!

It's been a long, long time since FiM made me feel anything, as this season's been slowly going downhill for me, but I got choked up several times this week. Pinkie's heartache was palpable.

Great job, A episode, Amy Keating Rogers for head writer please.

Am I imagining it or did the goof off contain some of Weird Al's Power Polka?

It did, and some folks are already saying Al's going to make a polka version of what he did for MLP, as he does it for almost every cartoon he voices.

Re: MLP:FiM S4E12 - "Pinkie Pride" - Grading & Discussion

I really really really did not like Cheese Sandwich. His mane and tail bothered me the entire episode because it is BROWN. I just didn't believe in him as a party pony, even when he was being a party pony it didn't ring true to me which is weird considering the voice actor. His colouring really bugged me the whole time, okay yeah the colour of (american) cheese? I guess?

He just didn't work.

Pinkie was of course wonderful.

I liked it - a fun episode all around. I don't have anything meaningful to say about it, though.

Re: MLP:FiM S4E12 - "Pinkie Pride" - Grading & Discussion

Pinkie Pie is my favorite character. I love her. Maybe I would have liked this one better if I wasn't already quite tired of the predictable recurring theme this season which is making every story seem basically the same. I like the stand alone quirkiness of Too Many Pinkie Pies and the babysitting ep and..

I think he was brown maned because Weird Al has brown hair, and they wanted to keep a resemblance to the VA. There's a screencap I have here, from the episode, that shows Weird Al as himself from the 1980s, but as a pony. It was in the lineup scene here (I circled him in red):



So that's why I figure they kept the coloring simple.
Also, I loved that, since Weird Al's stuff from the 80s is still my favorite.
