You underestimate shipping’s abilities.
Can it be? An Applejack episode that doesn’t center around apples? Now if only we could get an Applejack episode that doesn’t center around apples or the Apple Family--that’s asking too much though.
I found it to be a thoroughly enjoyable episode--probably the best Applejack episode in a while. It had plenty of gags, with my favorites being the bonnet gag and the TLC Hoarders lady (who, evidently was voiced by Peter New). There was also the light rustling of fanon with the semi-confirmation of Apple-Pie relations. I liked it. Didn’t go far enough to completely change things, but didn’t seem like a waste of time either.
I was a little confused why, instead of going on a long trip, they couldn’t have simply requested another copy of the genealogy that wasn’t blurred. It’s not like they only keep one copy, is it? I know that would have sunk the plot, but wouldn’t that have been cool? Lead us to believe that they’re going to go on this long trip only to pull the rug out from under us and subvert it with a quick letter to the Canterlot Archives.
I wish they’d subvert stuff more often, like the waterfall gag. That’s been done so much, even subverting it is getting cliche. Subverting stuff not only keeps us on our toes but can provide for far more humor than just a simple gag can.
I hate it when fanfics piss me off. Why, Exit Through Canterlot? Why must you implement one of the worst justice systems I have ever seen. One that even Tyrantlestia would cringe at. How could the author think that the police issuing summary punishments, there being no court system to speak of, and self-defense being illegal would be a good idea?
