This isn’t entirely fair; the show isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. That being said, a guy on YouTube who claimed to have seen the show left a comment listing all the things he didn’t like about it. As I was reading it I kept wondering exactly how much of the show he’d seen. Then at the end of the comment he says “All this is from the first episode”. I facepalmed and said “Well, there’s your problem right there!”
Luna would make a better Kami, in my opinion.
Celestia: “Are you questioning a goddess?”
Luna: “Are you?”
Tirek: "You think now that you’re this…so-called “alicorn princess”, that you’re better than me, Lord Tirek? Well, you’re not! I own you! I own this treehouse! In fact, f**k this treehouse!" (fires a blast)
Twilight: “Wait, I zoned out there for a second. What?”
You don’t know when to quit do you, Ice-brain?
“Maybe so, but at least I didn’t get banished to the Moon for 1000 years for trying to murder my sister!”
Okay. That’s certainly your right.
It might be an interesting concept in a different show, but this show isn’t supposed to be dark and depressing. It’s supposed to be light-hearted and happy.
The official trading cards described Celestia and Luna aS immortal, though it’s been implied in the show that Celestia can be killed, so at most they’re biologically immortal.
Well, it’s just my interpretation. I don’t insist on it.
Oh, I don’t think we’re that bad… yet.
Another thing to consider is the possibility that Discord wasn’t completely fooled. We know he loves manipulating people--he’s done it in every single episode he previously appeared in--and may very well have simply been playing along with Tirek, planning to ditch him later. Hell, Tirek probably suspected this (it was implied that they had had dealings before), explaining why he tried to dispose of Discord as soon as he no longer needed him.
You worded that better than I could have.
For 1 and 3: Celestia’s actions do indeed seem stupid if taken at face value, but consider this--in the first episode, Celestia takes the seemingly stupid action of ignoring Twilight’s warning about Nightmare Moon and telling her to go make friends, and then at the end of the episode it turns out that her making friends was the key to defeating Nightmare Moon and restoring Luna. I think it’s likely that the same thing happened here: Celestia expected Twilight, Tirek and Discord to do exactly what they did, and planned accordingly.
Let’s hope he doesn’t melt.
That’s a good point.
I’m inclined to agree with you, but if I were you I wouldn’t point it out, unless you want Icecane to bitch at you for a very long time about it.
I can’t speak for roberthaha, but the reason I didn’t give any reasoned arguments about why the episode is good is because I wasn’t trying to persuade you that the episode was good. I don’t really care what you think about the episode. I was trying to persuade you to stop attacking people who do like it. In that, I failed miserably, and I deeply regret ever engaging you in conversation, since it cost me a lot of time I could have spent doing something productive.
Good day to you, Icecane.
You’re wasting your time. I honestly don’t think he understands the difference.
Because other people have different tastes. I know that’s not a very satisfying answer, but it’s the only one I can give you.
Fair enough. I could have said what I said more politely. I’ll try to keep that in mind in the future. Again, my objection was not to his negative opinion of the episode, it was to his apparent inability to tolerate someone else not having a negative opinion of the episode.
Yes, I did. And I had as much right to do so as you had to respond to me.
Not really, since you were under no obligation to defend him. You chose to get involved in this.
I’m not trying to silence anyone. He has the right to his opinion, as do the people who liked the episode. Why don’t you mind your damn business?
