@  Xellos : (22 September 2016 - 05:25 PM)

Neon Tiger's stage music from Mega Man X3 was also pretty much straight from Guns 'N Roses' "My Michelle". X5 also renamed all the Mavericks as references to GNR.

Yeah. Lots of Mega Man songs are copied from bigger songs.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2016 - 12:50 PM)

Did Capcom copy Elec Man's stage theme from Journey by Faithfully?

But wasps can survive stinging, it's why they're such b*****ds and will fly straight at you. Buzzy buzzy bees on the other hand...

Ian saw that "see you turn into a Chris McFeely" post, didn't get the reference, and took it seriously.

@  Broadside : (21 September 2016 - 06:48 AM)

Action Man really ramped up the awful puns this issue. Maybe after McFeely died last issue, Ian took on his mantle?

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.

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".
