MLP:ER – Rainbow Falls, Pinkie Pride, & Three’s a Crowd

(Yep, apparently Netflix puts these in production order.)

Rainbow Falls

Once again we see how rampant racism is in Equestria!  You’ll notice in the background the token team of griffons (which we previously established as the conquered people).  Then we have Rainbow Dash refusing to even consider her friend Twilight as a team member even though she’s clearly a better physical match for the contest than Bulk Biceps!  Clearly alecorns are totally discriminated here!

Actually it does make you wonder about the big BB.  Does he have small wings because of steroid use, or are his small wings a birth defect and he became obsessed with fitness to compensate?  RD might be encouraging his ongoing depression and self esteem issues!  Bad Rainbow Dash!  What kind of lessons are we teaching our kids in this animated show about completely fictional animals?  Griffons today… they’ll be mistreating their roc’s before you know it!

Pinkie Pride

Weird Al showing up as a major guest in a musical episode?  Done.  Perfection!  Humanity has reached our apex (at least until James Farr does a super-smash up of the star wars prequels).  Pack it in everyone, Jesus will be coming again to pick up His copy when it’s on disc. (Because you know Jesus don’t pirate.)

Also nice to get a glimpse at how Discord’s church recruits adherents.  And we see Cheese Sandwich traveling the world… making disciples of all towns we might say…

Three’s a Crowd

I wasn’t sure how well the whole “Discord reformed” story was going to work out but I’ll admit this passive-aggressive fighting is getting downright entertaining.  Like consider some of these comic panels from MLP:Friends Forever issue #2:

Yep, Discord joins the CMC to help them out and we get a stupendous meta joke as well as a nice fandom shoutout. (yes I am confirming that I watched Friendship is Witchcraft)  That issue was actually really really good and I recommend any fan to get themselves a copy even if they don’t care much about the rest of the comic.  The CMC & Discord teaming up is so brilliant I wonder they haven’t devoted an entire season to it!

Where was I…

So there’s further proof of Pinkie Pie’s devotion to her chaotic lord (notice how eager she is to help him yet he has to brush her off lest the others get suspicious).  Instead he targets the two allied most strongly with Fluttershy before moving on to tormenting Celestia’s chief supporter with the next probable in line to boot!  At best he eliminates two more of the best soldiers his rival has.  At worst he’s dug his claws in a little deeper, drawing them to his fold.  Yes… the Game of Saddles continues to play out in tense political struggles week after week…

There’s also some lesson about how quality time IS quantity time when it comes to our loved ones or something but who cares about that.

      • Hey Nate, speaking of MLP… do you think it’s weird to bring that up on your Christian Mingle dating profile?

      • lol you know…

        Once upon a time maybe not, but enough have kind of “ruined” the reputation of bronies that I’d probably try downplaying it. Like just list: “Enjoy a wide range of family-friendly entertainment, especially: MLP:FiM, anything Pixar, etc etc”

        Remember you’re trying to sell yourself. 😉

      • Speaking of selling yourself… for money (nah, I’m just kidding… though I did pay almost a hundred smackers for email and IM’ing on Christian mingle), what do you think of my intro?

        “I am a very introverted and introspective person.

        I like to ask deep philosophical questions pertaining to Christianity in order to strengthen the case for it and DO NOT consider Faith and Reason to be inherently contradictory/incompatible. Thusly, I consider myself to be something of an amateur apologist.

        I like fellow Christians who can cohesively defend their faith and, if I can find one, a woman who is just as intellectually inclined as I am. So much so that she can call me out whenever I’m wrong.

        However, even if she is not so inclined, if she be willing to put up with my big concepts and big words, then hey, who really gets together with a person who is exactly like him or herself anyways? I know my parents weren’t and still aren’t! Night and day that relationship is, however strong and long lasting.

        I know my parents didn’t. Night and day that one is man… errr… woman…”

      • Again, sorry for the delay, I’m trying to get caught up on several writing things.

        Tweaked slightly below (unless you’ve already had success):

        I like fellow Christians who can cohesively defend their faith and seek a woman who is also intellectually inclined. Preferably someone that can call me out whenever I’m wrong.

        However, even if she is not so inclined, if she is willing to bear my big concepts and big words, we can give it a shot. Who gets together with a person exactly like themselves anyways?
