Also, strike has been extended. So no working for 50 minutes. Would have been fun, though.

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2018 - 08:21 PM)

I said numerous times already that I work at that big American corporation that begins with "A".

Who would be the heroes in this situation?

@  Waspinator : (11 December 2018 - 02:03 PM)

When I die, I want my body to be part of a puzzle solution. Like, have my skeleton pointing at the clue the heroes are supposed to find.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (11 December 2018 - 12:38 PM)

Can you say where you work at? Or is that private?

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2018 - 02:49 PM)

It's completely pointless... whch is exactly the point. Hundreds of workers showing up 50 minutes before their shift is over.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2018 - 02:49 PM)

We're on strike until midnight tomorrow (Tuesday->Wednesday). Which means I will clock in at midnight and work until my shift is over... 50 minutes later.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2018 - 02:48 PM)

Hahaha, awesome.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (08 December 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Isn't everything just killing us all slowly?...

Except the planet of junk actually fosters life, as opposed to the garbage patch which is just killing us all slowly.

@  Waspinator : (07 December 2018 - 11:50 PM)

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again. In one Age, called the Third Age by some, an Age yet to come, an Age long past, a wind rose in the Mountains of Mist. The wind was not the beginning. There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time. But it was a beginning.

@  Waspinator : (07 December 2018 - 07:03 PM)

Turning, turning, turning through the years. Minutes into hours, and the hours into years. Nothing changes, nothing ever can. Round about the roundabout. Round and round and back where you began!

@  Pennpenn : (07 December 2018 - 06:56 PM)

The change was you got something off your wishlist. Be happy about that if nothing else!

You know nothing.. NOTHING! Eevee is our lord and savior! He will give us the cuteness we need! ;) No seriously.. Both Pika and Eevee in the games are way OP and Eevee can learn elemental moves to replace evolving.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2018 - 03:22 AM)

It's cute, what other point does it need?

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 03:17 AM)

I can get Pikachu not evolving, the species has had decades of not evolving. But Eevee without evolution seems... pointless?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Neither can Pikachu... And you don't need Eevee to evolve!

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Neither of them can evolve as starters.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 02:30 AM)

Also damn it my mouse wheel broke. What a pisser.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 02:30 AM)

Okay yeah I don't know what to think for this one.

 

Honestly it just makes me wish the 'Let's Switch Bodies' fan animation happened in this.

 

Seeing Rarity and Rainbow Dash swapped would be a lot of fun.

Well, this one actually ended up being much more entertaining than I expected. Probably the best script G. M. Berrow's delivered for the show yet.

This is a season 1 episode trapped in a season 8 episode's body.

 

G.M. Berrow isn't a terrible writer. She just arrived a few seasons too late, and her episodes are stuck in their own separate bubble. Her writing is skewed noticeably younger, and the rest of the show has grown up too much for her to hide it.

 

This episode just does not belong in the same show as episodes like The Hearth's Warming Club.

 

 

That said, this was decent by her standards, though I don't think her script had much to do with it. I think it's the storyboards that lifted this one. There's constantly stuff to look at here. RD's mannerisms are entertaining as ever.

Berrow writes down to the audience...not in an obvious way, but in the sense that the plot twists are always very shallow and straightforward.  For instance, note where I speculate that all the students are in on the fake theft.  If I'd known this was a Berrow episode, I wouldn't have made that statement, because the most obvious and simple solution ("That's Spike's footprint, he's 100% behind leaving the trail for them to follow") would have clearly been the right one.  A more complicated solution, such as the students working together to craft elements of the fake theft so that they could see things develop as they happened rather than just seeing the end product?  Not in Berrow's wheelhouse.

This is a season 1 episode trapped in a season 8 episode's body.

 


 

 

I'd rather have a 'Season 1' episode like this where its at least a bit fun then a 'Season 1' episode like 'Non-Compete Clause'. This one at least makes sense to me, a group of friends that always hang out, and eventually you realize you might only be hanging out with some of them because of the group. It still could have been handled better, but the concept works pretty easily and much better 'AJ and Dash are super competitive over something' a plot they've mostly gotten past long before the episode.

That's fair. This one was more fun than that. I wasn't begging this one to end. Rarity and RD's interactions are inherently appealing, and the glitter was a surprise visual running gag.

But, there was a weird immaturity to the characters here, and it's especially jarring with Rarity who's normally one of the more grown up characters.

And you can't make an episode driven this much by Rainbow Dash not being able to stand Rarity's activities when you know and Rarity knows it's not true.

Saw it.  I was expecting to hate it cuz Dash but I enjoyed it a LOT.  But when it came to the books part.

 

I was AGHAST when Dash didn't read Shadow Spade.  Then, ugh, Rarity didn't either!  That part rang true.  You beg other folks to read the stuff you're into and... sometimes they don't (jerks).  Kidding.  But still, that was great.

 

When the theft happened, I didn't catch on that it was faked out because of the last episode with Flim and Flam and the missing book.  I thought this was a continuation and this time, someone actually stole something important (so Amulet of Aurora because Aurora Borealis which controls the tides?).  When Dash and Rarity started working together, I loved it.  Even more still that it was Dash who appreciated Rarity first by calling the raft awesome.  (though honestly, Rarity would have made a much more stylish boat, don't say she won't haha).  They were doing great work, though I actually would have liked Dash to do more Daring Do stuff.  Other than flying Rarity, it was Rarity who built everything.

 

(though how in the world did Dash suddenly make a cute cloud like that?  that was fun).

 

I would have liked this tons better if the theft was real and it was a lead in to the arc mystery, if there is.  But I surprisingly enjoyed the interaction.  Did think it was good to do the pairings. 

 

I'm not going to go through each on but let's go for just Rarity.

Rarity-Twilight at the Friendship University

Rarity-Dash is here

Rarity- Fluttershy the modeling gig and most frequent pairing

Rarity- Applejack in season 1 slumber party

 

Rarity-Pinkie Pie...   Where did that happen?!?  I just recall "Rarity catch me!" and they ended up on the railroad going home taking a long time in the Applejack not-lies about not winning the rodeo thing episode.

(Twilight was with Fluttershy for the Hoofs and McColts. Can't remember what Dash did, if with Applejack. My memory!)
