Don't you mean "just pooarfect"?

This Day Aria and the Reprise was probably the greatest song ever written for MLP. Sweet Celestia, I just loved when Chrysalis sang... and that giggle at the end. HNGGGG!

Chrysalis? You mean the Changeling Queen? Is that a fan name like Derpy Hooves, because I don't remember her name ever revealed in the episode.

But anyway, she was a major contributing factor as to why I liked this episode. Totallly badass villain. Thankfully her defeat was not exactly permanent like with the past two villains... we might just get the pleasure of seeing her again in the next season.

It was revealed by one of the layout artists after the episodes aired. However, before this the fans were actually already coming up with names. The most notable was "Cheeselegs."

Lolz I love you all. XDD

Brilliant epp!!! :D But one thing bugged me. Shining Armor and Cadence just came out of nowhere for these epps. These two have supposedly been a huge part of Twi's filly life but they couldn't at least hint at that in any of the previous epps?! Now suddenly they're here and now we get this super elaborate plot centered around them.

Oh, and I think you guys missed an important detail. Let me inform you in the calmest manner I can...

VINYL TOOK HER SHADES OFF!!!

Sure, Chrysalis was a nice villain, but I think they could've developed her just a little more. She was kind of cheesey to me (no pun intended). Discord and Nightmare Moon at least had a history behind their evil/chaotic plans. Chrysalis seemed evil just for the sake of being evil.

Seeing how were pointing out little details, let me add to it...

Rainbow Dash kissed Fluttershy during the Changeling battle. Flutterdash much?

And there is a huge hint that love is a 7th element. Notice how we see the twinkle in the real Cadence's eyes back in the cave? Reminiscent of Episode 2 when Twilight realized the six elements through her friends and herself.

My feelings EXACTLY. 

Don't tell Dashie, but I think I'm falling in love.

I too felt the same way about the two, before the episode even aired, but I began to just accept it.

And I noticed Vinyl taking her glasses off too, but I wasn't really excited about it. Not realy a huge Vinyl Scratch fan. Still doesn't beat the episode where Derpy talks. wink

They probably did, but it was just a kiss. It doesn't mean anything shipping related at all. 

Granted the animators were probably playing with us there, but as a person who is 100% against shipping, especially regarding Dashie, I think it was just a friendly expression of affection as a friend.

Her race is a parasitic alicorn/insectoid species that feeds on love, like mosquitoes feeding on blood. She just wanted to feed her subjects..

What more development does she need?

But her evil attitude is still unmotivated, which I find odd in an obviously very intelligent creature. At least with Nightmare Moon we have a nice long history to explain why she was twisted from good, and even with Discord we understand chaos is his very being, and we get an explaination that he is only awoken when there is significant disharmony between ponies.

Chrysalis and her Changeling army is just here wreaking havoc. For feeding on love, I know that's what they do, but why be so 'evil' about it? Is there no way love can be given freely to them? Perhaps not by ponies, but by another species capable of giving it?

I doubt parasites have any moral thought on their actions of survival, intelligent or not. IF you were a starving parasitic race struggling to survive, would you be 'nice-n'-polite' about it? No. At least Chrysalis was smart enough to be political about it, striking the heart of Equestria's main political structure to collapse the country's system to pave the way of her control, instead of willy-nilly attacking random places.

Love given freely to them? I guess not. Maybe those said "species capable of giving it" found them far to hideous and rendered them outcasts. That's enough motivation for a rather bitter attitude right there. And as time goes by with nothing but rejection, and therefore starvation, bitterness turns to hatred, thus becoming evil.

I immediately thought of this as well, and is the exact reason I actually sympathise with this villain out of everything she's done. Her character really has potential for such a heavy concept, which is why I hope to see her again.

Thanks for at least accepting it, and taking the change better than some others around here. wink

Anyway, I just found out something interesting. It has recently been revealed that Rebecca Dart was the designer of Chrysalis!

For those of you who may not know, she is a comic artist/animator who has also worked as background designer for George of the Jungle and location designer of Kid vs Kat.

I've seen some of her comic works, and I must say, some are very dark looking! Check out her Tumblr page:

http://r-dart.tumblr.com/

I hope to see the MLP concept art soon!

Well, if you like to start things in chronological order, I suggest the first two-parter. However, the episodes that really cook and have turned many to the fandom, are:

- Read It and Weep (includes an epic Indiana Jones parody)

- Secret of My Excess (can you spot the Aliens theme music?)

- Lesson Zero (good lord, Twilight looks scary when she has a mental breakdown!)

- MMMystery on the Friendship Express (love the James Bond reference)

However, my favorite episodes - and probably the most epic - ever made, are these:

- A Canterlot Wedding - Part 1

- A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2

Seriously, a mystery, paranoia, suspense, and straight up action, complete with explosions. Plus a great villain song, just like older Disney movies use to have. Back when Disney actually had good movies... However, you might not like the BBBFF song at the beginning, as a new recruit. I know I didn't like the songs either my first time watching.

However, the trick is to not stop at just one episode, even if you become a little intimidated. The minimum 'requirement' is at least two, or three. (I suggest three if you watch the CW 2-parter).

So anyway, enjoy, and don't worry about it if you end up liking it. This is a great fandom. If you feel comfortable keeping your enjoyment of it a secret, that's fine, but expressing your interest is encouraged. I do... everyone knows, and I'm okay with it. No one has called me gay or anything yet. aww

MhhhIdunno. The references are really brief. 

 

Best ones are the Royal Wedding episodes. Hands down, ideal "recruiting" vids.

BTW, that was a swoosh sound when Dash lifted Flutters back to her feet. Plus their faces were very close midway through the action, but mixed together it's easy to confuse it for a quick kiss.

Thanks!

Probably should've posted this here many moons ago, but here goes anyway...

This is my review for the first two episodes of Season 3, as seen on DeviantArt:

 

--

 

My thoughts on it?

Worst two-parter MLP:FiM has gotten so far. Not a terrible way to start off the new season, in fact I quite enjoyed it. But it was nowhere near the magnitude of the Royal Wedding two-parter that ended Season 2.

Though things like plot holes and continuity issues, and other similar problems, are common with MLP (and cartoons in general, for that matter), these episodes were riddled with them to a fine likeness of Chrysalis's hooves.


Allow me to list the specific problems I had with these episodes:

-The story felt way too rushed. In fact, this is the kind of concept you'd write for a five-parter, not a two-parter, so as to properly flesh out all of the details.
-The villain was a HUGE disappointment. I can live with the fact he looks like a cheesy OC, but he didn't have nearly enough screen time. He was just... there, looking all evil and menacing. That's it. No depth or personality. Just there, and just evil. Roar. :P
-The songs feel lackluster in my opinion. Not that they were "bad", especially not the Crystal Fair song, and it's nice to finally hear Spike sing. But they're inferior to the Royal Wedding songs.
-Rainbow Dash's attitude was pushed way too far. After all she's calmed down after midway through Season 2, she's back to being like... *this*. I especially hate it since she's my favorite pony character out of the Mane Six.
-The Crystal Heart was "hidden" in probably the worst and most obvious hiding place ever. I could list many easy alternatives to finding this thing, let alone actually getting to it, that didn't require everything Twilight and Spike had to go through, all while staying true to the series' canon.
-Cadence is the "Crystal Princess"? Wow. Great to finally know what she's a princess of exactly, but... care to share a little more back-story on that? Especially knowing the foal-sitter history we've been given? Explainations. I need them.


Out of all the negative, there was still a fair amount of awsomness that kept me hooked and joyful:

-References. Oh, I just love references in MLP, especially when they're relevant to my interests. Pinkie (S)Pie as Sam Fisher (note three-lensed night-vision goggles). Pure win when you have Twilight as Snake Pliskin/Solid Snake (Escape movies and Metal Gear Solid games) in an earlier Season 2 episode, AND have Pinkie in this episode as Fisher from the Splinter Cell games, AKA: my most favorite game series ever made. Thanks for that!
-The animation has improved. Only just slightly overall, but a great majority in sequences such as the Failure Success song sequence and the defeat of King Sombra.
-More Luna!
-The background music (NOT the songs already listed) was quite good. Though some pieces were recycled from earlier episodes, the more original ones were very well-done and helped my enjoyment of the episodes. I almost felt chills a few times...
-The humor was there. Especially with Pinkie's and Rarity's scenes. You just can't go wrong with these two. ;)


Everything else I'd call equal to, if not slightly better than, the rest of what we've seen already in the show.

So this was my review of the Season 3 premiere two-parter, "The Crystal Empire". Hope you enjoyed! If not... go read someone else's then. It's not like I'm the only one with strongly-worded opinions around here... :P


Oh, one more thing...

GAK GAK GAK!!
