Sorry, it's my weekly "geek out" journal entry. Don't read if you haven't watched the episode yet!
I love Applejack. But I was REALLY hoping for Big Mac to SAY SOMETHING...well, he did. Eeyup. Which I thought was pretty funny at the time. Now disappointed. Ah, well, he kinda has an episode coming up. Eeyup.
*Is it just me, or was this episode full of shipping fodder? Not that all aren't...but there were a lot of moments in here where I was all, "Why, that's not exploitable at all!" <_< >_>
*Rainbow's plan to beat out Pinkie Pie to the cider was hilarious...what's more, I've tried to do that before. It worked out about as good as RD's plan against Pinkie.
*You would think AJ would let her friends have first dibs on cider...poor RD
*Has Caramel ever spoken before? Because he just opened his mouth and annoyed me...
*Okay, when I first heard about this episode and saw the name, the first thing I thought of was The Music Man. When the Flim Flam Brothers came out and started thinking, the FIRST thing I thought of was, "Ya got trouble, folks. Right here in river city. Trouble with a capital T and that rhymes with P and that stands for pool!" ^_^ That was cool.
*Apple Bloom kept trying to be an apple business mare. How cute. But don't you remember how bad that went last time? Stop trying to be a apple business mare, little one ^_^;
*...I love that running joke with Rainbow Dash. And now I want cider...
*Applejack kicking the punching bag with Apple Bloom holding onto it doesn't help with the idea some fans have that AJ beats her little sister -_-
*Dr. Whooves is a time keeper...is that all he does....have an hour glass? Sit around and watch the sand go through the hourglass? That's...pretty funny, actually.
*Okay, watching this episode made me really annoyed at unicorns...Earth ponies working so hard while the unicorns laid down on a couch? It's like that one picture of Rarity and Applejack playing Nintendo Wii - Applejack is all into it, while Rarity is laying down with a cup of tea, using her magic to play.
*Mayor Mare...you had to ASK the Flim Flam brothers if it was okay for the family members to help? What kind of mayor are you? Make a decision, woman! Er, mare!
*Rainbow Dash running next to Big Macintosh was adorable....
*Granny Smith must really hate Rainbow Dash...First pushing her across the street when she didn't wanna cross, then trying to speed quality control...
*Jumping Lyra in the crowd <3
*Awww...everypony in Ponyville was sad for the Apple Family...they DO care...
*"Dear Princess Celestia....I DIDN'T LEARN ANYTHING!!" That was great. Love AJ.
I really liked this episode, but I thought the song was too long...Thoughts, anypony?
EDIT: Holy FRICK, I just realized this would affect a fic I'm writing. Not that you guys care, but I do. This is why I never end up posting them. GAH, why do I even TRY!
