You know that Patton Oswalt knew he'd made it as an entertainer when people stopped asking him whether he was Pat or Oswald and where was the other one.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 10:20 AM)

He does lots of voice work, but it was young Oswalt in my dream, so I guess it was the King of Queens edition.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I only know about Patton Oswalt from Transformers.

We won because Ellen kept going up the other teams and telling them to not worry about their hair looking silly in their helmets.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:10 AM)

I had a dream I was in a team kick scooter competition and the 3 people on my team were Ellen DeGeneres, Patton Oswalt, and my third grade bus driver.

That's never good. Buy it from a place that will replace it?

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 04:57 AM)

Gaaaah, Hasbro. My Transformers Tribute Optimus Prime (from the two-pack with Orion Pack) has a misassembled part that has another part connected to it via a metal pin...

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:22 PM)

I just know they have the same ID number in the computer as deluxes, so the search feature on the website is useless.

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:21 PM)

No idea on price.

@  Shrug : (19 October 2017 - 05:14 PM)

Oh thanks. I just assumed it was a special item. Does that mean it'll be the $18ish the normal Deluxes are or can Walgreens price them separately?

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Before you go hunting at Walgreens, know that the Clone two-pack number is identical to the regular deluxe number. An in-stock listing for the clones likely just means they have deluxes in stock.

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

anyone who still says "they're both the same!" after the past 10 months is WILLFULLY ignorant.

Discord at first seemed genuinely sad to see Twilight disheartened, to me it seemed he quite enjoyed using her as a 'sparring partner' in his game.

Yeah, I was totally expecting things to go that way; Discord starting to repent or something.

That was kinda... rushed. I finished watching it but it felt like it wasn't supposed to be over or something.

Other than that, still 1000 times funnier than Season 1 start and thus, atleast for me, a much better Season start overall.

Discord is SO RANDOM. Filling up a glass from the top down, drinking the glass instead of what's in it, and tossing it away with an Aqua Teen Hunger Force style explosion. And that's just in one shot. Did anyone catch who that fuchsia pony was that was going "Bliblibliblibliblibli" in the pan across Chaos-Ponyville?

Yeah I agree that this probably should have been a three parter, as it feels like 10 pounds of plot in a five pound bag. Discord's defeat felt really weak as we go from Twilight holding the idiot ball so she'd lose her colors, or Discord holding it so he'd be defeated. Everything betweeen those two were great and I did love the use of the letters, which really gave the lessons real purpose.

Also, nice useage of the "Rainbow Crash" nickname, by Fluttershy, of all ponies! (And on Spike, no less!) "Come on Spike, you are Rainbow Dash now!" icon-fire.gif Twilight, ever the control freak.

It were little touches like that that made the episode. The cloud over Twilight, too~

When Twilight had to carry Tom into the house, I was wondering 'Will they ignore that it's bigger than the door or not?'... Well, they didn't ^^

Yeah, the resemblance between them seemed to grow the more changes he made. Too bad Warner Bros. doesn't own My Little Pony, or they could've just banished him there instead of turning him back into stone, lol.

QUOTE(Rezo @ Sep 24 2011, 10:04 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
[*] Needed to be a three-parter. Both episodes seemed a little rushed


Yep, it really could've benefited a lot from being 3 parts. Maybe if these two eps had been left as the S1 finale, with a cliffhanger that was resolved in the S2 premiere. The comedy was great, as usual (I think my favourite bits were Fluttershy while she was being nasty), but the actual rise/defeat of Discord plot seemed very rushed. Twilight's restoration was well-done, but the others were cured a bit too quickly and without fuss. And Discord's actual defeat seems like it was just thrown in there at the end to wrap everything up. However, it's not like he doesn't know what the Elements are capable of (and he knew his spells over the mane 6 had been broken)... given the way he just sat there and told them to go ahead, it's almost as if he wanted to be re-petrified, or at least accepted it as necessary.

I almost wonder if he's come to understand moderation after all, and recognizes going back into the statue (whatever it's like in there; maybe he has some kind of "world" to himself), with the occassional break-out every once in a while for a bit of fun, as an acceptable compromise with a more ordered Universe. To me, anyway, this sounds like a better explanation than "well, we just needed to end the episode and banged it out in 2 minutes".

But hey, while the true God of Chaos is away, we'll always have our minor Spirit of Chaos to keep the candle burning...
