@  RichardT1977 : (22 August 2017 - 10:56 PM)

Got some good views of the buildup, though (through certified filter glasses, of course)

@  RichardT1977 : (22 August 2017 - 10:56 PM)

I was in the zone of totality when the eclipse came. Unfortunately, I was also in the zone of cloud cover.

@  Evac : (22 August 2017 - 07:41 PM)

the one Bon Jovi song I unironically enjoy

@  Evac : (22 August 2017 - 07:41 PM)

Blaze of Glory

@  Telly : (22 August 2017 - 07:24 PM)

was out at walmart early and ran into an old family friend. my phone was playing "blaze of glory" by bon jovi, she said she hadnt heard it for a long time. i said i like old music, its better than the crap they put out today. is this how OUR parents felt about our music?

@  unluckiness : (22 August 2017 - 09:44 AM)

Nah, they could tell by the lack of the very distinctive dialogue delivery. They just didn't want to be mean.

@  Dracula : (22 August 2017 - 08:42 AM)

Moon base is fine. I knew the castle was a total loss so I gave Olrox my best cape and told him he could have the throne room. The damn belmonts couldn't tell the difference

@  Pennpenn : (22 August 2017 - 06:39 AM)

It's probably because that's a direct quote rather than an attempt to self censor

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 August 2017 - 06:26 AM)

"shit" isn't filtered anymore

@  Donocropolis : (22 August 2017 - 05:51 AM)

Elvis doesn't do sh*t.

@  Pennpenn : (22 August 2017 - 03:38 AM)

Fine, though Elvis has a bit of a headache.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 August 2017 - 03:27 AM)

How's his moon base?

@  Waspinator : (21 August 2017 - 11:02 PM)

Thankfully, Dracula's castle didn't escape the eclipse this time.

@  Nevermore : (21 August 2017 - 09:41 PM)

In retaliation, President Trump threatens to nuke the moon.

@  Nevermore : (21 August 2017 - 09:40 PM)

This just in: ISIS claims responsibility for the eclipse.

@  Diecast : (21 August 2017 - 06:09 PM)

Which left like a hundred disappointed middle schoolers.

@  Diecast : (21 August 2017 - 06:09 PM)

Where I'm located got 95% eclipse. Which lacked a worthwhile climax. I really should have driven into it, but I planned on going to my science teacher wife's school thing that got cancelled last minute.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 August 2017 - 03:44 PM)

I was considering trying to get the day off for it and driving down south to the US far enough that I could see the total eclipse, but after looking into it it seems like there's another total eclipse coming up in 2024 where the totality will be visible just 45 minutes south-west of me, so I figure I'll wait it out

@  Bass X0 : (21 August 2017 - 03:30 PM)

don't worry, social media didn't.

@  MEDdMI : (21 August 2017 - 02:59 PM)

shoot... I forgot all about the eclipse.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 August 2017 - 02:36 PM)

lewd

@  Bass X0 : (21 August 2017 - 01:30 PM)

i wanted a peek at the sun's peak too.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 August 2017 - 01:02 PM)

Just caught a peak of the 'bitten' sun. COOL!!

@  Noideaforaname : (21 August 2017 - 12:46 PM)

I got my cereal box eclipse viewer ready. Hopefully these clouds part...

@  Dracula : (21 August 2017 - 09:44 AM)

well I'm supposed to be permanently sealed in a dimensional rift today so I've gotta stay on guard

@  Diecast : (21 August 2017 - 09:38 AM)

Any of you nerds going outside today?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 August 2017 - 07:52 AM)

"Would have been?" Isn't he still on the Batgirl thing?

@  unluckiness : (21 August 2017 - 07:46 AM)

It probably wouldn't be worse but it sure would have been really samey to everything else he's done.

@  Paladin : (21 August 2017 - 06:42 AM)

i am still not convinced he could do a worse job with Batgirl than Bruce Timm already did.

@  Pennpenn : (21 August 2017 - 03:42 AM)

The thing to remember about Madman is that they are often more enthusiastic than they are reliable.

@  2017 : (21 August 2017 - 12:01 AM)

Yeah, I'm pretty surprised.

@  Maruten : (20 August 2017 - 10:13 PM)

This stuff I think. http://www.vulture.c...-hypocrite.html

@  Confuzor : (20 August 2017 - 10:05 PM)

The what now?

@  2017 : (20 August 2017 - 09:39 PM)

This news about Joss Whedon sure was a thing to wake up to.

@  Sabrblade : (20 August 2017 - 06:59 PM)

To back up to the original question about Scramble City's existence in regards to the English-language cartoon continuity, the pack-in comic that came with the Australian DVD boxed set released by Madman did feature a timeline of events that included a point in history titles "Scramble City", so that comic may at least want us to "pretend" that Scramble City happened in the cartoon continuity. But then again, that same comic also used the Marvel Comics' asteroid crisis as the true reason for the Ark's launch, and included the Beast Wars as being unambiguously part of this timeline, so make of that comic's timeline what you will.

@  NightViper : (20 August 2017 - 09:16 AM)

And unlike Takara's JG1 that has been steadily evolving and passing itself down from writer to writer in more-or-less smooth transition, anyone going back now to Hasbro's G1 does feel a bit more like changing history rather than reviving or continuing it.

@  NightViper : (20 August 2017 - 09:11 AM)

Editors at Fun Pub didn't feel it was right to try to "fix" or otherwise change or alter other writers' works. Which is why everything Fun Pub-written became its own stream (Animated was written by the same creative team as the show, so it's one of the very few stories still set in its original continuity). So rather than write words into the original creative team's mouths, Wings only sought to offer one possible solution to the Constructicons weirdness.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 August 2017 - 08:24 PM)

Too bad there weren't that many Wings stories. On the other hand, JG1 is still continuing with stories!

@  Spacewarp : (19 August 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Wings is obviously not cartoon continuity, but is heavily indebted to it.

@  Spacewarp : (19 August 2017 - 06:09 PM)

Basically what my original point was that continuities based on the original cartoon but not actually a part of it have used what Pennpenn originally said.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 August 2017 - 05:42 PM)

I get what you mean, but the wording is awful. It's not possible for Wings to "alter" or "destroy" something it was never part of, nor really interacted with.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 August 2017 - 05:40 PM)

It didn't "alter the existing continuity". It's an entirely new one that left the cartoon's continuity exactly as it ever was.

@  Bass X0 : (19 August 2017 - 05:24 PM)

didn't it take the original cartoon continuity but change parts of it to make a new continuity? i said i'd have preferred it stayed within the original cartoon continuity instead of altering the existing continuity. thats what i would have done. stories would have been written around the existing stories.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 August 2017 - 04:24 PM)

Wings can't "destroy it even further" when it was never the cartoon continuity in the first place.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 August 2017 - 03:57 PM)

The problem is that it isn't really fixable without redoing it from the ground up. Or going into insane retcons and rewrites, which A) is about the same thing, and B) is kinda Takara's thing.

@  Bass X0 : (19 August 2017 - 03:22 PM)

I find its better to fix a broken continuity than to destroy it even further.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 August 2017 - 03:06 PM)

The cartoon couldn't even stay consistent with the cartoon, so why worry when something else can't, either?

@  Bass X0 : (19 August 2017 - 02:53 PM)

I never connected with the whole "Wings is similar to the cartoon continuity but several things are different" thing they had going on. they should really have done it so that it stayed in continuity with the cartoon but focused on the off-screen events prior, during and after the cartoon stories.

@  unluckiness : (19 August 2017 - 10:42 AM)

Not like it's ever relevant anyway.

@  Pennpenn : (19 August 2017 - 10:00 AM)

I mean, it doesn't make sense otherwise, regardless of how official particular fiction is.

Pumped Up Pony and the voiceover on the educational film were both rather John Kricfalusi-ish elements.

Very good episode. With lots of nice visuals to episode. A masterful eye nightmare scene by Nayuki, roid rage pony which will proably get name from a secondary character from ren and stimpy, woodland animals cosplay pony masks, good variety with all the background pegasus, and fluttershy outfit parade. With the best one ebing the tree costume. Plus a toy character get her show debut with Bloomsforth it not one but two scenes. Like DrSpengler said the morale and lessons of the episode were very realistic done. In which incase you haven't watch the episode yet. Wheren't done as being predictible but how it would handle in real life if someone were to try. Defiently one of the stronger episode for season 2.

[scavgraphics] 11:10 am: why did they put catepillers on snow white's face?

[Arson] 11:14 am: Eeyup. Obvious plot point is obvious.
[Dvandom] 11:14 am: The Scouter reads 0.5.

[Dvandom] 11:20 am: Well, of course they have zippers. For the boots.
[Shoggoth] 11:20 am: Still, I really liked that "Fluttershy posing in front of the sun" bit. Looked awesome.
[Arson] 11:21 am: Yes. Badass Fluttershy FTW
[scavgraphics] 11:21 am: gee..if I was giving a Metereology exam....I'd have a bonus question about the number of pegasi needed to lift a lake up to a cloud city
[Caboose] 11:21 am: I like how Fluttershy of all ponies gets awesome guitar riff background music.
[Dvandom] 11:21 am: You already said that. icon-hotrod.gif
[Shoggoth] 11:22 am: did he sound exasperated at "more pound puppies"?
[Dvandom] 11:22 am: (I half expect to get a question about that at the review session)
[Dvandom] 11:22 am: Luna's abacus!
[Shoggoth] 11:22 am: Whoah, Spitfire?
[Dvandom] 11:23 am: Ze goggles, zey do nozink!

[Dvandom] 11:25 am: Going down flying....
[Arson] 11:25 am: Ponies can do that, you know.
[Dvandom] 11:26 am: Believe in the Kamina who believes in you!
[Arson] 11:26 am: Eh. I was close.
[scavgraphics] 11:26 am: do it for the snazzy goggles!
[Arson] 11:27 am: Whoah, SPITFIRE wasn't even helping!?
[Skids] 11:27 am: She was an impartial judge for the record attempt
[scavgraphics] 11:27 am: so dave, if they didn't have to power than fan, how much more power would they have had?
[Dvandom] 11:28 am: Yeah, the fan, even assuming it was catching backwash and multiplying up, would likely have drained some power.
[Arson] 11:28 am: Well, not Celestia.
[Dvandom] 11:29 am: I woulda gone with a cup anemometer, myself.
[Shoggoth] 11:29 am: That was a pretty cool episode.
[Skids] 11:29 am: yep
[Guardian Prime] 11:29 am: Awesome Episode icon-hotrod.gif
[Dvandom] 11:30 am: Anyone catch the name of Steroid Pony?
[scavgraphics] 11:30 am: forrest animals cosplay as ponies!
[Shoggoth] 11:30 am: I need those butterflys for cargo lifting
[Nayuki] 11:30 am: he didn't get a name, he was more of a visual gag
[Shoggoth] 11:30 am: YEAH!
[Guardian Prime] 11:31 am: I'll call steroid pony.....'Bulk'. At least until somepony comes up with one better.
[Dvandom] 11:31 am: So, Gabby Gums is one of the Mane Six?
[Shoggoth] 11:31 am: No, Gummy.
[Dvandom] 11:31 am: Heh
[Dvandom] 11:31 am: Makes sense.
[scavgraphics] 11:32 am: well, Pinkie and Dash weren't in the commerical
[Skids] 11:32 am: Gummy the ventriloquist
[Caboose] 11:32 am: Call him Bulkhead.
[Caboose] 11:32 am: http://tfwiki.net/wi...khead_(Energon)
[scavgraphics] 11:32 am: though I'm guessing it's the CMC
[Shoggoth] 11:32 am: No, just writing. No need to talk. Yet I thought the teasers already said it was the CMC?
[scavgraphics] 11:32 am: seemed to be a student made paper, i thought
[Shoggoth] 11:33 am: I will say I liked the bronze effect on cloudsdale that they had going on
[Caboose] 11:34 am: Yeah, the next episode is "Ponyville Confidential", it's about the CMCs posting this article that talks about other pony's secrets
[Shoggoth] 11:34 am: That fit in with that retro pep talk video from the start
[Caboose] 11:34 am: Or something like that.
[Dvandom] 11:35 am: But that's not important.
[scavgraphics] 11:36 am: so there was a groucho marx pony at some point
[Skids] 11:36 am: and the three stooges ponies
[Dvandom] 11:36 am: And a Steve Martin, for the arrow in the head gag in S1.
[Dvandom] 11:37 am: (Yes, I know he didn't originate it)

That...

Was...

AMAZING!

Totally made up for last week! This episode had everything! Good jokes, fun callbacks, & an emotional thrill ride.

Fluttershy is not just my favorite pony because she's so cute & lovable. But because I connect with her as a character. I wasn't good at sports when I was little, I was picked on in school, I hardly talk so in this episode I really felt for her.

+ Rainbow Dash was probably at her most in character this entire season. Determined to succeed no matter what the cost. Trying her best to make Fluttershy join with the rest of the pegasi. In fact this along with the reference to their fillyhood past, the scenes between the two are sweet.
+ New BG pegasi! The one that's obviously on steroids was hilarious.
+ The scene where Angel & Fluttershy's other animals cheer up & helped her improve her confidence was sweet. It's a nice reminder that Fluttershy not just takes care of them, but they're Fluttershy's friends and are loyal to her.
+ The montage was epic. I love how one of the animals had a Derpy mask at one point.
+ Twilight not being able to speak squirrel, definitely had to be a PPG reference.
+ Of course, the entire third act was an amazing climax even if I figured how it was gonna go down.

Grade: A+

I believe there are some good ones from this...

That was so freaking good.

"Do I look like I speak squirrel?!"

I now demand Twilight cosplaying as Squirrel Girl.

That is all.

Since people will inevitably ask about pony names for the episode... let's get this out of the way:

Rumble (Thunderlane's little brother)

Slow Fluttershy upload makes Kyle angry and rash. This may well drive me to Tacos.

Excellent episode. I particularly liked how much RD wanted Fluttershy to get to be a part of the accomplishment. Yes, Dash really wants to do awesome things, but she also wants other ponies to do awesome things. The oh-so-Fluttershy training montage was a lot of fun, and also badger.

Relevant aside: I was autocrossing today--and having a rough time of it my first runs. The last run wasn't enough to win my class, but I brought my time way down from earlier in the day, and it felt great. Appropriate episode to watch when I got home!

Gawds, I was waiting forever for YouTube to put that up. Not exactly a 'fun' episode but a good decent one. I was actually most impressed with Rainbow Dash, except for one (maybe two parts), she was remarkably not obnoxious. She pushed the others hard but she didn't insult anyone or put anyone down or tease (as far as I can recall). I'm proud of Rainbow Dash in this ep, even over Fluttershy.

Fluttershy finally got to be a tree! Teehee! I wonder if it's an intentional callback to that Appaloosa episode? I can't believe she would lie tho. Twice even. Bad Fluttershy! A pox on thee! Fake pox!

Thunderlane? I kept hearing Thunderwing (Transformers ref, lol). Where the heck is Scootaloo? If a little Pegasus like Rumble can be there, why not her?

Who the heck is the benchpressing Pegasus, lol! Was Screwball from the Discord ep there?

Cool training work! I dunno if I wanted an actual song sequence there cuz I can't imagine how it would go. Hmm, ok, maybe as TF Dare or Mulan's Be a Man. Lol at Flutter vs Butter flies! Cool idea using those, Uh, whatchamacallits flower thingys to gauge her own speed. Btw that tree she was crying under looked familiar. Was it used before?

Anemometer, yeah. The big one is a lot of tech tho. They really need hurricanes to make clouds? Celestia is too important to evaporate lakes for Equestria? Boo!

Felt kinda sad that Rainbow Dash was disappointed that she can't break the record due to loss of a few pones. Still, glad she tried. Good thing no one was injured. Yeah, the new pegasus's look great in action!

The story plot is simple and no huge twists of so but I'm just getting back to Fluttershy being proven to be much faster than her performance here. She outflew a weighed down Dash in Discord part 2. She kept pace with her while dragging a cart in the Round Up ep. She was quick when shaking down trees in the Flim Flam gambit. Surely the hurricane, with the rainy fate of all Equestria behind it, is important enough to get her to break her 5.0 wing speed (the meter stopped at 795, right? And her fastest at the track was 2.5 or 2.3? I didn't hear Twilight say anything about it going more than it had to so I'm assuming Fluttershy only did was bare minimum).

Did Angel bunny frown when the squirrel gave the nuts to comfort Fluttershy? Like he didn't want anyone else to comfort her? I wanted him to have more scenes ala being slammed into the tree, lol!

Since people will inevitably ask about pony names for the episode... let's get this out of the way:

Flitter (cute ribbon)
Cloudchaser (awesome mane)
Thunderlane
Blossomforth (from toy to show character)
Silverspeed
Rumble (Thunderlane's little brother)

edit: No, the big muscle pegasus didn't get an official name. He was more of a visual gag. I guess the fans will have fun with that one.



Thanks for the names! My favourite was the dark blue male pegasus with the Ursa Major cutie-mark. icon-hotrod.gif

And for a minute there, I thought Thunderlane's name was Thunderwing... which would have been even more awesome.

This show keeps coming up with more and more new and great designs every episode. Is it wrong of me to expect toys of these characters? icon-fire.gif (And that reminds me, I need to pick up Blossomforth now...) Muscle-pony was hilarious, and so was the whole WWII-type hurricane documentary/reel.

Great episode! Definately one of my favs from this season!

I presume the "Do I look like I speak squirrel?" line was a shout out to Tara cuz she voiced PPG's Bubbles, who was fluent in squirrel.

Big Large McHuge pony, old projection film, lots and lots of Derpy, flashback to flight school, really fun to watch and laugh along to. icon-hotrod.gif

Was so happy to see Blossomforth, get get a smigen of character (Clumsy?) and even get a few call-outs. Hopefully we can see her freakish neon-pink hedgehog sometime. icon-hotrod.gif

So, WHERE are the re-scored training montages?

I was honestly not expecting that ending, it was very realistic. I thought it would go something like somepony would say "Without the rain water the small animals will starve!" and Fluttershy would be all like O_O and do the entire tornado herself, hence the name "Hurricane Fluttershy" but no, she started out at 0.5, which I just summed up to her being nervous, then through hard work and training went up to 2.3 and at the end when her friends needed her the most, she pushed her self to the limit with 2.7 wing power.

I liked the moral of the story, very good and relatable. Every little bit counts no matter how small it might be.

Every time that muscled pony came on screen I lol'd. Good work on that.

A lot of great scenes, overall very good, I enjoyed immensely! =D
