but really, this episode was twice as long as it needed to be.

It was to make up for how fast and cluttered the first two episodes where.

In that case, it needed to be about... twenty percent longer.

Knowing this show, the dam probably does make electricity but shoots it as lightning bolts up to Cloudsdale for them to use in the weather.

Sounds good to me. If not a full blown series then maybe as short webisodes on Youtube that build up into a full story. Release a webisode each week during the break between season 2 and 3 and the wait won't seem as long.

Sounds good, although i'd prefer seeing Dash be awesome instead seeing Dash tell us about how someone else is being awesome.

An episode or two exploring Dash being, as she has stated herself to be, a world class athlete would be nice.
Take part in some competitions and stuff, and instead of having the competition be the issue like in "Sonic Rainboom", use it just as a backdrop for something else that causes drama.

Also, am I the first to notice the animation error at 12:39 where applejack says "Yeah, just go ahead and eat up" but, her mouth only forms the sound for "Yeah" yet she keeps talking after her mouth stopped moving?


Just a guess, but it looks like she's saying the end of her line early. Maybe they animated it with her saying most of her line off screen, but edited in a pause after Rarity so she said more while onscreen?

Daring do also mouths something after triggering more traps. It looks like "Figures." to me, but who knows.

Why can't people get the idea that maybe technology and magic aren't separate things here?

Nayuki, was those the new animations you mentioned before the season?


Could you be a little more specific?

It seemed to be a lot of new angles with Dash in bed and I remember you mentioning there was going to be new 2/3 models and a bunch of other new angles we never seen yet. I just thought this episode introduced a few of them.

New angles? Ah, back then I was referring to the new angles we added to Celestia/Luna/Zecora/BigMac/other male ponies. In season one their front 3/4 angle face didn't show both eyes, so for season two we added a 7/8 angle that shows both eyes.

Oh, that makes sense, next time I should pay better attention. Also, nice job with Dash's pretend sleep face.

Did you have any part in this episode? If yes, please explain.

Speaking of that opening scene, we can add "able to turn her neck 360 degrees" to Pinkie's list of superpowers.

Nayuki, would it be at all possible to reveal what Dash's bedspread design looks like without her obscuring part of it?

I... kinda want to... have a real one made... *squeak*
