Everypony ready for an Applejack episode?

QUOTE
The Last Roundup: Applejack goes missing after attending a rodeo, so her pals search for her.

Looking at TVGuide.com, it appears that there won't be an encore showing immediately afterwards anymore. The time slot following all new episodes for now on will be reruns of S2 episodes. No more of the same episode back to back. So try not to miss the first showing, or you'll have to catch YouTube later instead.

In my opinion a great episode. AJ I thought was acting a bit out of character and maybe not living up to her elemeny of honesty, but she technically didn't lie. She just... didn't tell the whole truth.

Pinkie was fun, as usual. It was funny to see them use her as a "weapon" to try and get AJ to spill the beans. Angry Pinkie was funny too.

The final scene with Pinkie and Rarity was just awesome. Nice to see that the writers didn't just have them magically be on the train with the others. Poor Rarity... icon-fire.gif

And finally, Derpy is now officially canon and has a voice! Anyone know who was voicing her?

"Is it because you're insulted by that time I insulted your hair?" Rarity = line of the episode AGAIN.

Derpy sounded like Ashleigh to me.

Yeah, me too. Lucy references excite me more than CANON DERPY. I mean, I'm glad the show has this ongoing back and forth with the fandom--god knows it wouldn't be as popular as it is without it--but I prefer that to be more in the background (like correctly pairing Lyra and Bon Bon, like they were this episode.)

Also, I love how this show isn't afraid to bend its own rules for the sake of a gag. Like, there's no way they wouldn't go back for Rarity and Pinkie, you know? But somebody said "ponies on a handcar! PONIES ON A HOOFCAR!" and so it went in.

Doesn't sound like Tabitha, but that just goes to show how good a VA she is.



One thing that's got me thinking is how come no one went with Applejack to watch her in the rodeo and offer support?

As always, I'm in agreement with Master Fwiffo.

I'm also not too fond of excessive slapstick (My fondness of Lesson Zero isn't exactly universal, either), which her scene kinda was. And it felt very, very forced.

I'll withhold judgement of the rest of the episode since the above may have coloured by impression of the rest beyond its actual relevance for the episode at large, though.

Well.....I....I don't know what to say. I've got mixed feelings about this. I'm not really sure what to think of it.
I'm still in shock that they actually made Derpy's name canon on the show. That was very unexpected. She had been absent in the past couple of episodes, but today she came back in a BIG way. And they even gave her a speaking role!

After watching the episode on the Hub this morning, I hit EQD to see what the fandom's response was to this. The number of responses there are overwhelming, but they seem positive overall. A whole lot of excitement going on there as a result of Derpy's canonization today.

I always thought that she was meant to be the "where's Waldo" of FiM and never expand past that. At least, that was the impression I always got. Hasbro really dropped a surprise on all of us today. One that I never expected would actually happen.

Poor Applejack. Looks like her episode today is going to be remembered as Derpy's episode instead.
