Personal thought on the announced show change.Ah well... i guess I'll throw my two cents in here, too.More Like This
I'd rather throw this where people might actually see it, but I don't really have a place to do that.
Okay, this post is going to be very SPOILLERIFFIC so if you've been living under a rock, well... stop reading. I'm fairly certain most of you already know what's coming though.
So yeah... Alicorn Twilight.
I admit to being one of those who are disappointed by this, but I believe my reason are different that what seems to be the mainstream reason. This show HAS always (mostly) been about Twilight, but it didn't always FOCUS on Twilight. Throughout Season 1, Twilight was always there, but it was her friends that pushed the envelope, that pushed the story, and she, being her adorkable self, just kept getting caught in the middle. The stories weren't about mythos or changes or anything... it was about how conflicting personalities and differences of opinions could still be worked around to maintain a stable and heartfel
My thoughts on the MLP Season 3 finale...First of all, I would like to say congrats to Daniel Ingram for doing a swell job making a musical episode. I don't think I've ever seen this many songs in such a short amount of TV before, and the sheer variety of tunes was quite a treat for the ears. I also loved all the continuity callbacks, like Pinkamena, Spike's 7 hour long bubble bath, etc. The episode was definitely full of emotion, and it definitely affected me in a big way.More Like This
Having said that, not all the emotion I felt was good. The heartwarmingness of seeing Twilight bring her friends back to their real destinies quickly gave way to dread when I saw her teleported to an ethereal plane with Princess Celestia who congratulates her, and I instantly started having flashbacks of the final episode of Neon Genesis Evangelion. What followed kind of left me feeling empty, and even though I knew which emotional buttons the episode was supposed to be pushing, its attempts fell flat on me, and left me instead feeling worried.
Friendship is IgnoredAs expected, most of my aforementioned concerns were dismissed because various reasons. You know... I understand that I'm putting a lot of effort into complaining about the possibility of a show catered to little girls, but I find it insulting that people entirely dismiss any and all arguments just because they think I'm being butthurt.More Like This
I'm not raging, I've said that already. I'm just sad that something I love is, by all accounts and evidence that we currently have, going in a new (and in my opinion, inferior) direction. Are we not allowed to fear for the loss of a good thing? I fell in love with this show for a reason, and I'm not complaining just to complain.
In the end though, I don't think my fears are entirely unfounded. After some thought and consideration, let's take a look at Season 3 and I'll explain what it is that has me so bugged.
Season 3 is only thirte
