And the special word for today's episode boys and girls is, "The Placebo Effect."
I also liked the ending where Flim and Flam just got the fuck out of town. It made me laugh.
And it looks like AJ got her item of power now. I think that just leave Twi.
I would still wander what it all means, but I think the way this season final is going to go has already been spoiled for us with Hasbro's new "Rainbow Power/Rainbow Kingdom Gimmick."
For me, this could go either way, it may be either interesting or boring.
Speaking of which something has crossed my mind. The higher ups of Hasbro obviously care more about toy sales than they do tv ratings so I wonder what would happen if this whole rainbow gimmick thing doesn't take off the way they want it to.
Would they keep throwing ideas at the show over and over again until they found something that worked or would they call it a day and just let the show be. Or just cancel the show because they couldn't pimp enough rainbow power out to the kids. I doubt it will be the last one. They'll probably just keep throwing more and more at it and when they can't throw anything else, they'll find something else to throw at it.
If it does fail, I would honestly like to see Hasbro try something ballsy like, I don't know, market a girl toy line the same way they would toys for boys.
Then we could see "Twilight with Spike fire breathing action!"
Sound weird? Well I don't think it should. Girls like stuff like this to. That was the point of the series in the beginning that Faust was trying to make, girls aren't just into sunshine and sprinkle sparkle bullshit. They like fire breathing dragons, hydras, giant monsters and big fantasy battles. This show could have been a lot better if they had given her more creative freedom, but Hasbro higher ups are so afraid to tiptoe outside of their safe zone that they were probably hyperventilating throughout the whole "Lesson Zero" episode when Twi flipped the fuck out.
Hell, when I was watching my little cousin, she talked me into playing with her MLP toys, before I knew it Rainbow Dash and Pinkie were trying to save Fluttershy form Cthulhu with the help of Spike the adult Dragon.
She basically asked me to come up with a monster for the ponies to fight and that was the first thing that popped into my head. We took a dinosaur and plopped an octopus on its head for Cthulhu.
Why bother mentioning it anyways though at the end of the day the only way people want to make money is by playing it safe and playing to stereotypes. Even if it doesn't seem to work the first time just keep doing it over and over again just try harder to be more predictable this time.
Kind of got a bit cynical there for a second...
Mooduness is over, but to fun:
"Earthbound" mother bucker!!http://www.equestriadaily.com/2014/03/e ... .html#more
It looks fucking great.
I hope they aren't reading the thing that made Seath lose his shit...
Although I would like to see another "Lesson Zero" where Twi freaks out.
