    I'm not feeling it either, but I also have been slow about even finishing Season 7.

    The bad Sheldon-expy episode is the low point of Season 8 though, and there are some much better episodes down the line. Break Up Breakdown is widely agreed to be the best episode so far.

    Season 8 Thread

    WTF just happened lol!?!

    If you didn’t watch the last episode ‘The Mean Six’:

      Spoiler:

    Chrysalis comes back with a plan to clone the Mane 6 and the goal of stealing the EOH, “eliminating” Twilight and co (with Starlight being extra personal), and conquering Equestria. She uses a spell to make evil duplicates of them from Everfree trees with personalities that are basically their “discorded” selves...

    Anyway, the duplicates make it to the Tree of Harmony and it looks like the Elements are being corrupted by their presence, but when the “Mean 6” touch the tree, in a graphic scene reminiscent of of ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’, they shrivel up into husks and turn back into wood. Chrysalis swears she will try again. THE END.

    (Also there is the parallel story with the Mane 6+1 having a bad time on a weekend trip to camp in the Everfree. They accidentally separate and run into the others’ evil counterparts but it seems like neither party knew what was going on even by the end. They forgive each other but have no idea what had happened.)

    New bar for darkness in MLP.


    ..Yes I still live!

    Seriously, Jesus Christ!

      Spoiler:



    And now I’m reading that the leaked production version was more extreme and Hasbro had to ask to tone it down for broadcast.

    Honestly? Not really...

    And Hasbro understands that October is Halloween, right? Why would you air a Christmas episode 4 days before candy day?

    Why would you premiere Winter Wrap Up on December 24th, in the middle of winter?

    At least it was tangentially related, due to snow. Holiday episodes are typically one-offs and can be aired at any time. So someone specifically picked Halloween to air a Christmas episode.

    I keep up.

    Not really following fan news anymore though.

    Still listen to fan music occasionally, but mostly streaming or whatever is in my Bandcamp feed.

    At this point I feel like I’m mostly tuning in to see how it ends.

    Season 8 Thread

    Rachael Bloom guest stars as the Crazy Ex Girlfriend Kirin. Hah

    I wonder how much of the songs/writing she had a hand in, and how she got involved.
