Today's episode was 503: Castle Sweet Castle! No link yet, though.
So, after all that time, the new castle's a home. Sort of? Kind of? Hopefully? It's at least more decorated. And there's some flora in it now. Everything's a-ok!
How did you like it? How do you think the other rooms look now? Did Spike ever get a new bed?

Appleoosa’s Most Wanted
Infamous outlaw Troubleshoes Clyde returns to terrorize the Appleoosa rodeo and the Cutie Mark Crusaders set out to bring him to justice, hoping it is the key to finally getting their cutie marks.
That was probably the worst episode of the show, not even joking.
>This fucking scene.
I don't care about the rest 10/10
>Implying it's worse than SAYS
Do tell, what made it shit? And don't just say DURR TEH PLAYSET.
>Meanwhile, over in Canterlot.
So far season 5 has been good.
Let's hope it stays that way, via the magic of "Celestia not appearing in season 5"
HAVE YOU SCREENCAPPED DASH SCRUNCH YET ANON?
>I think Xyro can do it in about an hour and a half.
Xyro *could do it.
The guy's ded
(not dead), IIRC.
I have fixed the horn problem
Anon you're being sil-
We've known that tree as long as we've known the mane six.
I've known friends who had their houses burn down. They lose so much of their childhood stuff. I hope this episode helped a few kids out there.
>How did you like it?
I was underwhelmed, but to be fair I'm a Twifag and was really hyping this up for myself as something with lots of feels for the old home and prepping the new one. So I probably set myself up for disappointment.
Also, I bet it gets better on the second watching. Lots of S1 episodes are better on the second watching.
For some reason, I have a hard time watching S2 episodes again.
Equestria Games is by far my least favorite
Its one of the only episodes of the show that I actually actively dislike.
>Spend the whole season foreshadowing this huge event
>"Wow, aren't you excited to watch the magical horse Olympics?"
>"Haha, 20 minutes of shitting on Spike instead!"
>oh my heart wasn't she just the cutest pony
Yeah, she really was. A lot of the stuff she did was precious.
Her big tear filled eyes at the end there and her and Spike hugging in front of the ded library were okay too.
It had a few good points but it was definitely a low point overall
I don't know if I would call it worst ever though
Its one of very few I won't be rewatching, though
>I REALLY HOPE THIS SONG IS OVER BECAUSE IT'S REALLY EMBARASSING AND I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE BUT IT'S APPARENTLY NOT OVER YET MUMBLE MUMBLE I FEEL TERRIBLE
Fuck "Equestria Games" in the ass.
Actually, you certainly could...
Well, if there's anything left.
The awful thing about fires is after everything gets burnt black its then hosed down with hundreds of gallons of water so anything not destroyed in the fire is destroyed by the water damage. If not both, turning it all into a black gunk.
It might help to have -something- even if it no longer works. To remind you. It might fuck up a child but I think the adult they become later would appreciate it.
TOO MANY VARYING OPINIONS
DON'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK
Celestia already got her cameo, in the memory gem things. Get ready not to see her again until the Smooze.
Yeah... I expected slightly more from them. But it seemed innocent enough at first.
Rarity wanted to make it pretty, Pinkie wanted to make it festive... then AJ started bringing the entire barn over with blankets that have never been washed, Fluttershy thought the place needed to smell more like animal shit and urine... Dash thought trophies she won would make the place look more homely...
You know what, just the stupid ponies did stupid shit.
You just liked it because Rainbow Dash got to sing
Eh, I could follow their logic.
>Hey, Twilight keeps coming over to my place instead of living here! That must mean she likes where I live better.
>So she'd like it if I made the castle look like my home.
Ponies are inherently stupid creatures. They follow the wrong herds, they mess up. Their cutie marks give them the semblance of competence in whatever their special field is, but other than that, they're dumbshits. That's what makes them so...
Yeah, that was awful.
Maybe the episode and the season build up shouldn't have been about the Equestria Games then.
Equestria Games felt exactly like the Poochie episode from Itchy and Scratchy to me: they kept talking about the fireworks factory and at the end of the season they just kind of drove by it.
>tfw trying to browse mlpg for an episode link without trying to notice spoilers
I don't see Twilight in there. It starts next week for me. Dash had good development in the last few seasons even if this episodes will probably be garbage. But I'll check it out it's the least I can do.
Yeah, I just wish we got to see the this Applejack kitchen.
Or Fluttershy's stuffed animals.
Hopefully continuity doesn't fuck up and we get to see Twilight's bedroom adorned with hundreds of plush animals (including a plush Discord?)
Or maybe Twilight's apple-themed kitchen.
Now that my expectations have been stripped bare and shat upon, I will begin to like the episode.
>tfw i have feeder fetish
>but i hate fat people
Why is every show shitpost these days accompanied with a picture of Faust?
Is this her legacy? Nevermind what she's done, she just accompanies "waaaah playsets, my nostalgia goggles are glued to my face" posts.
Almost ironic how these people are ruining her rep. Whenever I see her picture get posted I just think "oh boy can't wait to see what epic new "TM" meme has been cooked up"
is it obvious i havent drawn scene/alternative/idk once in my life
Life is change, friend. Embrace it.
Spike is like 12 years old and has spent 95% of his life around girls. He's going to come off as effeminate regardless of his orientation.
It might have been Twilight's idea to let him spend time around Big Mac to get some masculine influence in his life.
There's only a certain number of times you can do that as a joke before it's honestly hinting to a serious addiction.
>that episode where Rainbow Dash comes out as an alcoholic and isn't in the show for 3 episodes because she's in a clinic
Because shitposters want to give the illusion of authority. It's a subtrope of trolling. They give the illusion of a majority opinion, even quoting their earlier posts.
In my head, there are exactly two shitposters, and both of them hate the show.
But I didn't make that post.
I'm referring to how everyone is being incredibly vague about what they dislike about it and the only conclusion I can draw (from some people expressing opinions of this being a filler/uninteresting episode) is that it's simply not action or adventure.
>twilight gets spike to hang out with stallions to get some masculine influence
>he gets exactly that
It would be another proof that they don't respect these characters.
The = may die, but the memes it inspired will linger on.
We won't need = to filter and foster our memes any longer.
>wake up and come to mlpg 2hrs after a new episode
>no show discussion at all
must have been a shit episode huh. i thought for sure the first few episodes after the premier would be their good stuff to build up hype for the season.
>There has never been an episode of the show I've hated
Sure, I prefer some eps over others, but I've felt enjoyment watching every ep in some way. I can't really find anything polarizing enough in this show in general to warrant hatred.
>No show discussion at all
This. The only episode of S1 I find hard to rewatch is that one with the phoenix. Every part of it is funny, but the part in Fluttershy's cottage until Twi shows up is like torture.
I had a hard time since it was totally obvious and cringey that it was a phoenix.
"Boring." That's literally the first solid criticism I've heard in four years. Thank you!
Everyone always just hems and haws and says they hated it, it was awful, but "boring" is a legitimate and useful criticism.
It's stranged but I'm really hyped for her episode. Or maybe "curious" would be a better word. I just don't know what to expect. No doubt we'll get plenty of interaction between her and Tank which is in itself pretty interesting. At least it won't be a Twilight episode. I'm grateful at least for that. Dash will be shown as flawed? Again, I'm grateful it's not Twilight.
I already know what will be the most popular option, but whatever.
Of course not.
It's been done horribly in the comics already.
also I'll take a moment to remind you that this is horrifying
I knew she ate her pancakes like that.
The episode stands on its jokes and the plot is, sadly, pretty retarded.
It's the same with Castlemania, for instance.
it is always waffle
also I'm pretty sure there is a billion twilight_unwashed jokes to be made out this episode
Forgot the image. Like a choob.
Does anyone have orginal pic this one was based on?
And I'm tired of them already
Rate how unappropriate the ponies' decorations were (aside from not creating a homely feeling, that's a given)
Nigga live animals would tear the place down, kill yourself retard
Shoving dirt and mud all over the floor with random plants is pretty close to full retard too
YOUR trophies? Seriously?
The cannons going off at random were too much and made everything a mess
The gems were too shiny and that's it
There was literally nothing wrong with Rarity's decorations. The gems were pretty and fit the design of the (admittedly ugly) castle pretty well.
All of the other ponies' decorations were complete trash, particularly Fluttershy
>letting shit-spewing animals run around indoors
There seems to be something off with Ashleigh this season. She's had a few lines that seemed completely off and screwed up so far, like that one Applejack line in the first episode.
Could have been better but we've seen worse.
They should up their game for later episodes, though.
Well, she in fact isn't in education, employment or training. She's not even a part-time librarian anymore, it seems like her royal duty consists in waiting for her bootie to vibrate so she can gather her friends and "spread friendship"
Maybe I'm just easy to amuse but I died when Bulk crashed through the wall.
Haha, hey remember when changelings were a thing for that one episode, and then never again?
YEAH I CAN DO IT
I'll just have to be tired later, that's all
Hurrah, they can leave the castle now because spike ate all the fucking pancakes
God tier: Rarity (actual decorations, actually met the requirements of the task like a non-retard)
Mud pony but at least you tried tier: Applejack (the quilts and barrels at least made sense for a housewarming gift, if you like dirty country trash)
Elder god tier: Fluttershy, a live bear is probably the best house decoration
Criminally insane tier: Pinkie for setting up Twilight's assassination with hidden explosives planted through the house
Rainbow Dash is the most baller pony of all time tier: Rainbow Dash. Having Dash memorabilia all over the house and signed miniature golden statues of Rainbow Dash everywhere to worship would be amazing
Where did he get that plushie, anyway?
Did Rarity make one for him or was it Fluttershy with her 'freaky knowledge of sewing' and plushie animals?
cause I'm only going through for picks
what do you think I'm going to post the entire episode in caps or something
>that part in RTM
Best written line and line delivery in MLP ever
I've accepted the fact that she's never going to be in the show again.
It just means that her character is never going to be diluted
Pure villain waifu material for all eternity
Keeping Twilight away from the castle all day, Spike's got some
>bara bara bara~ what is a little dragon doing in my chest?
It kind of defeats the purpose.
You're trying to show us something... and you post a tiny image to show us.
I knew this, I just felt like asking him again to see what his reason was this time.
At least the Chrysalis comic arc was great.
Just gotta hope against hope that her fiendship is magic comic doesn't ruin that.
Sorry anon, I'll try and refrain from discussing inanimate TF
I just watch the recent episode. I don't know why some of you rag on it but I thought it was a decent slice of life episode, not to mention comfy. I would rate it 8.5/10.
also we got to see lots of the inside of the castle this episode
most of it is empty halls but this is new
>Give her lots of animals so she doesn't feel so alone
So Fluttershy is confirmed to fill her house with wild animals because she's incredibly lonely?
>How did you like it?
This episode was fucking great.
1:Every pony (and Spike) was on their game and had some solid laughs.
2: Twilight even got to be neurotic again which was LOOONG overdue.
3: The library got the recognition it needed and they conceded that the castle was a cold empty eye sore far more than I had expected.
4: That song while they were screwing up the castle was a laugh riot.
>How do you think the other rooms look now?
Well the place still needs a science lab and a hell of a lot of books; but the chandelier was a cool idea and the place looks less spartan so its a definite improvement.
I actually think the way they are dealing with the castle is a smart way of dealing with Hasbro. The fact is that the show is owned by a giant toy company that sees it as little more than a pretext to sell toys and every now and then that company has to be mollified or else they butt their noses in and blow things up and replace them with sparkly castles or start slapping wings and crowns on anything that moves
So the writers got this pretext for a castle playset shoved down their throats and rather than try to ignore the elephant in the room they're dealing with it by "making memories" in it which I suspect will be a pretext for making the castle cooler and giving Hasbro a pretext to sell more playsets.
We get a cooler (or at least less lame) castle and Hasbro gets a pretext to make their shekels which will hopefully keep them quiet for a while.
As far as Faustian (pun intended) bargains go, I think its a smart one.
>Did Spike ever get a new bed?
Dude sleeps on the floor, he should be flattered Twilight didn't take him to the pet store for a bed.
I laughed out loud during the Bulk part and I feel bad because he feels like a cheap joke character
YOUTUBE/DM LINK WHERE
NO SPOILERINO PLS
also somewhere in ponyville right now the top the crystal castle is having light focuses through it, burnign anything that happens to be in that general vicinity
It's okay to laugh at a cartoon's simpler gags, anon.
Shes constantly going on adventures with her best friends, how lonely could she be?
Shes an animal lover with reclusive tendencies who'd rather live in the forest than in town, I can relate. I just wish I got out as much as she does.
Going by the fact we can actually see the light beam it must be pretty damn close to where the 'camera' is.
>RIP Ponyville city square.
It reminded me more of the memory crystals from Superman's fortress of solitude.
>tfw playing halo online RIGHT NOW
After all these years...finally
I'm always game for some Neurotic Twilight webms.
Crepes are better than both, anyway.
Sleeping ponies are the cutest.
Yes. Thank you. This is exactly what I wanted.
