Not sure we need the thread opened on Thursday, but anyhow, could you please redo the subject line so it matches the other 2 episodes' threads?

Earlier?
You mean later?
At last according to EqD and their secret info source/whatever: http://feedproxy.goo...nge-on-hub.html

Sorry I should've made it clearer. By earlier I meant the usual 9am timeslot rather than the later 10am slot.

I'll be watching over BronyState, if it's still working properly. Those of us who plan on watching that way, should we pick a room to convene in? (They have the chat rooms split up by pony name to keep things from getting too crowded; I don't think it has any affect on the actual stream connection.) I'd suggest Twilight for obvious reasons, but it'll probably be pretty heavily populated since its link is on the top row.

I have to say that was a very fun episode. Twilight going crazy did go a little creepy at times (her expressions were priceless) and I loved Rarity's overly dramatic moments. Rainbow Dash with sunglasses looked great.

I really liked Smartypants' mane.

And Derpy being derpy made my day icon-fire.gif

The new intro was good (although I missed it the first time around thanks to the Midnight Run stream lagging and stopping). So that's one of the leaked pictures confirmed...

And finally, Big Mac running off with Smartypants after the spell was broken made me laugh. I fully expect a flurry of fan art to come from that (and the unfortunate shipping that will inevitably come).

Her third voice, actually.

This was fun episode, the first act was slow but once the other ponies came into the story.

The macros made from Psycho Twilight will be enough to to give Ponibooru another 1000 pages.

Watched it a second time because I kept tabbing out to post on Ponychan, and I noticed that Twilight's crazyface makes an early appearance during the cupcake scene. Unsurprisingly, this was written by the same writer as "Party of One." I guess we know who on staff was the big Ren and Stimpy fan growing up.

Ha! I laughed out loud at that.

  • Rarity Best Poni. As, well, always
  • Twilight 'If nopony has problems, I'll MAKE them have problems!'. That pony has problems
  • Fluttershy kneebarring a bear will never get old. She's still second worst poni, though :-p
  • All the mares are after Big MacIntosh
  • Mayor Mare's appearance makes me happy <3
  • Princess Celestia 'Twilight, meet me in the library!'. I see lots of [Explicit] tags popping up on ponibooru. I mean... Even more than before

All in all, brilliant episode. Maybe slightly too much slapstick/ nonsequitors in it, but that's details. Definitely upper tier material.

Oh my gosh! I thought it started at 10 am today! O_O!!!!! I was 2 minutes late watching it and missed the new intro. Why didn't you save me, Nayuki? QQ THIS IS THE WORST THING EVER!

Was it just me or did the voices of RD and AJ voices seem a bit off when they were destroying the barn?

Twilight's OCD breakdown <3

I knew Derpy would be some where in that crowd and she did not disappoint. <3

Big Mac finally got a new catch phrase. <3

Fluttershy's aggression did seem a bit out of character at first.
