I knew someone who got put in the calzone by a girl. Tomato sauce burns are no laughing matter.

@  TheMightyMol... : (05 May 2016 - 12:57 PM)

If you leave your mass graves open for random people to lie naked in, you're doing it wrong.

@  Paladin : (05 May 2016 - 12:53 PM)

isn't "friendzone" a made-up thing creepers use to comfort themselves when they get shot down by women who wouldn't willingly lie naked with them in a mass grave?

I know this thread is a bit early, but I'm looking forward to the new episode a lot. These waits are annoying!

Anyway, this is what we know:

And they have no contact with their family in order to protect them from criminals and to save the show's special effects budget.

long ago on a distant planet 2 alien Ponies place their child in a spaceship headed for earth. Built by Apple turnover and her husband Apple fritter the ship reaches orbit and escapes the pull of the planet's gravity just as it EXPLODES!!!

or there's always this theory

I always figured that out of everybody, the Apple parents were the most likely to have actually dies in the show.

I know I'm being selfish, but I hope we don't see their parents, or especially Fluttershy's and Dash's. At least until I can get my fic finished in another few weeks.[/selfish]

which was just before Applejack went to the Orange's

Well I certainly didn't expect this episode to tell the history of how Ponyville was founded. Or that Granny Smith was one of the original founders. Great stuff!

Also, the rainbow coloured Zap-Apples reminded me of something...



Another great episode in my opinion.

With the exception of Ponyville's origin story and Diamond's punishment, I found this to be a very weak episode. Very by the books "Old people are eccentric for a reason." moral

Let the extra nerdy "Is Granny Smith a reliable narrator?" debate begin!

And since they're never going to address it I'm going to assume that Ma and Pa Apple were not killed in a tragic applebucking accident but are, in fact, fighting evil picking apples in an alternate universe thanks to a mishap in the Everfree Forest.

Liked this episode enough the watch the repeat...not the greatest ever, but, you know, funny. Loved the "I prefer Rich" running gag.

Oddly enough, I kind of ignored the routineness of the story, because I was having so much fun between Granny Smith's antics, the peculiarities of Zap apples, and the Ponyville origin story. YMMV. As Applebloom episodes go, I preferred this to "Cutie Pox".
