    The new EQD Drawing post has a lot of stuff for Chrysalis that I absolutely adore.

    I'm getting way too attached to this character.

    Saddle Arabia sounds like an interesting place to visit in S3. Ponies, djinns and sultans is what my probably racsist mind is thinking of. I don't know anything about Saudi Arabia...

    I keep having to remind myself that it's called the Fertile Crescent for a reason. Well.. not Saudi Arabia itself, but the edges. And Iraq.

    Assassins Creed's color palate did not help.

    (so jealous of my brother who got to go to Jerusalem while his ship was on tour.)

    Galloping Gorge? That's the canyon with the quarry eels, right?

    . . . they should TOTALLY GO THERE.

    Maybe have her write the letter to Twilight Sparkle instead, that would be kinda neat, if a bit cheesy.

    It might've happened when the episode first aired, but I'm amazed I haven't seen more stuff of various writers trying to figure out how "poison joke" would mess with the secondary/background characters.

    Oh man that movie. I mean the very fact that it has quite possibly the biggest plothole EVER in a film it's just a shitty musical overall. Can't believe the same guy who did Rock a Doodle did Secret of Nym.

    Haven't actually seen the movie, but I watch a lot of Nostalgia Critic.

    Also, Nostalgia Critic mentioned that the film was more weird than straight-up bad.

    Which was kind of an issue with Don Bluth.

    His films got progressively more bizarre as the years rolled on.

    Didn't think Anastasia or Titan A.E. were all that bizarre.

    Only watched the second one once, though, causing it to only earn half its budget at the box office. Then Treasure Planet came out two years later and lost almost as much money and people stopped financing big-budget 2D animated space movies.

    Titan A.E. was great, but bombed miserably for dumb reasons.

    Anastasia was probably his most successful, thus proving that his only shot at real financial success would come from copying Disney.

    I know some of you said that you would rather see adventure type stuff in season 3 rather than slice-of-life.
    But to be honest, it was the slice-of-life stuff that got me so into this show in the first place. I know its cheesy but season 1 had that certain charm that wasn't all there in season 2. Not saying season 2 wasn't good mind you, I just want the producers of the show to keep doing what they are doing and see what comes of it.

    Season 3 is the first completely non-Faust season correct? Should be interesting to see what they come up with.

  • SabreMauSabreMau Still featuring glasses. Registered User regular
    As long as they don't decide to turn it into a fully adventure series whose plots can be distilled to:
    1. Threat shows up
    2. They spend the episode finding the way to vanquish the threat
    3. They vanquish the threat

    Character depth can keep things interesting.

    Game Of Hooves.

    Honestly though I would guess that every episode is still going to revolve around the lessons of Friendship in Season 3. By brining a bad faction there is a chance to tell a story of faction diplomacy. As long as the story stays in ponyville then I can't see the stories changing. If the focus turns outside of poniville I suspect we will see more foes.

    Honestly there are more stories that can be told about the characters that need to be told. Like Applejacks family and Scooterloo needs episodes. Returning to Tank, Spikes new Phoenix pet, Trixie, More Luna. There is so much to return to that I suspect they will actually run out of episode slots to return to everything.

    I was discussing Cadence's Aria with a friend today and we got to wondering who the singer was. Turns out it's Lindsay Ridgeway. Wikipedia says she does the national anthem for the LA Kings and Anaheim Angels. Her biggest role was the singing voice of Darla Dimple in Cats Don't Dance.

    I remember that was one of the films playing at my theater the very first week I started work there.

    But as for singing voices, Twilight switching from speaking to singing voice and back again at the start of the episode seemed a bit more jarring than usual.

    And I just today noticed, while checking the episode list on Wikipedia, that three episodes have their own Wikipedia pages. The Return of Harmony, Hearts and Hooves Day, and A Canterlot Wedding. And now they got the ratings in:
    Hasbro wrote:
    LOS ANGELES – A record-setting performance by the much-buzzed-about, two-episode special wedding of Princess Cadance and Shining Armor -- from the pop-culture phenomenon series “My Little Pony Friendship is Magic”-- on Saturday, April 21, delivered the best-ever audience numbers for any series in the history of The Hub among the target demographics of Kids 2-11, Kids 6-11 and Households. The series is produced by Hasbro Studios.

    The first episode of the two-part “My Little Pony Friendship is Magic” Royal Wedding Event (Saturday, 1-1:30 p.m. ET) was The Hub’s best-ever telecast in network history with Kids 6-11, Kids 2-11 and Households. It was the second-best ever among Persons 2+.

    The first episode earned year-to-year delivery gains among Kids 6-11 (+1047%, 218,000), Kids 2-11 (+1100%, 336,000), Women 18-49 (+140%, 36,000), Adults 18-49 (+102%, 95,000), Persons 2+ (+369%, 483,000) and Households (+286%, 363,000).

    The second episode (1:30-2 p.m. ET) was second-best telecast in The Hub’s history with Kids 6-11 and Households, ranking third best-ever with Kids 2-11.

    The second episode earned year-to-year delivery gains among Kids 6-11 (+654%, 211,000), Kids 2-11 (+487%, 311,000), Women 18-49 (+80%, 36,000), Adults 18-49 (+46%, 104,000), Persons 2+ (+157%, 475,000) and Households (+130%, 341,000).

    Driven by the outstanding performance of Saturday’s “My Little Pony Friendship is Magic” Royal Wedding Event, The Hub earned its second-best Saturday (6 a.m. – 12 a.m.) in network history with Kids 6-11 (58,000), Kids 2-11 (98,000), Persons 2+ (184,000) and Households (129,000).

    Add in some numbers from the live streaming for people who don't have the hub and you have a fuckton of viewers.
