Correct

@  BlackMax : (16 January 2017 - 10:37 PM)

So correct me if I'm wrong... it's good that we see the ads, but it's better if we click them?

@  Kalidor : (16 January 2017 - 05:24 PM)

I wonder if any other blockers (javascript, etc) are triggering it. I hate to do it but I have to do something. I don't want to be like Forbes that makes the site un-usable with adblock.. but I do want to remind people that ads are necessary.

@  Dracula : (16 January 2017 - 01:23 PM)

Yeah I had turned off adblock a while ago and got the same message last night.

@  Lazy Garou : (16 January 2017 - 12:38 PM)

anyone seen the korean method 1?

@  Arazyr : (16 January 2017 - 12:11 PM)

I got something similar recently. I think it was due to the site being set up to use https. AdBlock counted it as a different site. I had to update my settings.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2017 - 09:31 AM)

I got it this morning, but it turns out my ad blocker was actually on. I could have sworn I turned it off for the allspark already though...

@  BlackMax : (16 January 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Yeah, so did I. Only one time though.

@  Pennpenn : (16 January 2017 - 03:05 AM)

Got a popup saying I'm using ad-block on this site when I am not. Huh.

@  Bass X0 : (16 January 2017 - 02:29 AM)

In that case I say it is survival of the cutest! Do I hear a second on that? And against?

The platypus is nature's way of saying "I made this from scraps I found on the floor, and it can STILL hug you up."

@  MEDdMI : (15 January 2017 - 11:05 PM)

That's what they WANT you to think. They're already a mashup of at least 3 other creatures. Platypi are already Megazords by themselves.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 January 2017 - 10:52 PM)

But it's a platypus.. They don't really do anything.

Depends on how big the dog is.

@  ShadowMan024 : (14 January 2017 - 02:56 PM)

If you're inside of a dog you've probably been chopped up into dog chow and won't be able to read anyway.

@  Lazy Garou : (14 January 2017 - 01:36 PM)

misread a facebook title about Bauman's legacy as the importance of Batman's legacy.

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2017 - 11:33 AM)

A book is man's best friend outside of a dog, and inside of a dog it's too dark to read.

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]

i'm guessing her parents died not long after Applebloom was born
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".
