CheerileeParaspritePosterSM by PixelKitties


By which I of course mean you should adore Matt Smith and, more importantly, avoid SPOILERS.

I think at this point we're all aware of the leaking of this weekend's FIM episode "Hearts and Hooves Day"  At first I'd hoped it was some kind of special on-porpoise gift to the community, but from the sound of things it's a tremendous derp over at Itunes and, undoubtedly, heads will soon roll down the aisles of Apple HQ.

I did in fact purchase and watch the episode because I'm terrible at waiting.  I have zero willpower when it comes to such things.  That said,  it was something I bought and paid for and legally purchased, so I don't feel bad having seen it.

BUT...

I think we also need to do the right thing and keep our mouths, and wacom tablets shut until the episode airs for everypony on Saturday.  Many people are far more patient than I and are waiting to watch Hearts and Hooves Day Saturday morning, as is tradition.  I will also be tuning in to support the show proper-like.  But you won't be seeing any art or references to the show from moi until after that time.  

I don't mean to come on and lecture as much as I seem to, but I do wholeheartedly believe we have something of an obligation to represent the virtues of the show we love and- perhaps more importantly in the really real world- to support the show and the people who create it in every way we can.  That means putting our eyes in front of the advertising and dutifully not spoiling it for others.  

Anyhoo, I'm sure you all know this being generally awesome people and ponies.  Hope you all have a great weekend of either Valentines or anti-Valentines activities ahead.  I'll see you on Saturday!

PS- This week, Cheerilee is best pony.  True fact.

I posted a spoiler on G+... But it was encrypted to Hexidecimal, and was tagged as a spoiler. :P

Don't forget the ending was a bit ambiguous, so we don't know if they are a couple. My money's on 'yes' but that's not the point.

Well, turns out DA doesn't have a reliable method of adding spoiler tags. So another thing to add on the list of reasons I hate this site.

good call. I live in the UK so wont see any eps untill much later and it dose irritate me as soon as I come on to DA there is TONS of art and journals based on that episode.....screen shots ect all spoil it.
I know many where exited to get their ideas up ASAP, but could they NOT think of the folks who have YET to see the ep due to other reasons, it wont pevee them off so much.

*offers latte* a reward for your good words

if you posted spoilers I'd follow David Tennant's example from Silence in the Library, by which I mean I'd appear out of nowhere from behind you and say SPOILERS! in a somewhat loud voice. :icondavidtennantplz:

I agree with your opinion... I wish I could buy it, since I'm also very bad at waiting and I got near zero willpower when it comes to that... and I almost succumb to the temptation, since I was watching it on youtube, but I stopped before the opening credits... it just... didn't feel right... all this chaos is just a doozy from a guy at iTunes, it's not like Annonymous hacked the site or something like that, but until I can actually buy the episode from iTunes (hard luck for somepony out of USA and with little to no income for my entertainment =(), I can't capitalize that doozy on my benefit... even if it's eating me inside out ^^;

Seriously, it's not that big of a deal that an episode leaked early. Bronies and Pegasisters are too dramatic. You'd think Season 3 was just cancelled because 100 less viewers may turn in on Saturday for this episode. -sigh-

I would have assumed that the episodes are released automatically, upon a date as written in iTunes' code. Which makes me believe somebody released it on purpose.

I could not resist watching it. I couldn't pay for it, unfortunately, because iTunes thinks that it needs to obey the archaic licensing laws that exist today, as I don't live in the US. I do so wish networks would realise what year we currently live in.

My favourite bit (without spoilers)? 04:05.

I heard it was a typo in how they entered the release date. They said 2011 instead of 2012.

:iconwizardwannabe:
WizardWannabe Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2012
So, that means that someone had to write in the date for it's release a few days ago, meaning it isn't all automatic. If they had written out all the dates at the same time, they would have had to typo more than just the year. What I don't get is that if that happened, the system recognised the year was wrong and then released it? Sounds to me like someone wrote in the entire wrong date, more than just the year. Or did it on purpose/thought the date they were told was correct and didn't care.
Whatever, damage done. I'm still watching it in an hour on the stream.

Sadly, I saw it, but I'm not telling anything until after the show airs Saturday, Feb. 11.
Now, remember, who've seen it, keep it to yourself.
Or, we'll sent Twilight Sparkle over to give you "The Lecture!"
She's doing that at ITunes, right NOW! ;P

I had no willpower as well and watched it too. And I (of course) won't spoil anything, but agree with you whole-heartedly that Cheerilee is this weeks best pony.

...and even though I had no willpower this time, one thing's for sure. Everyone nowadays should be more patient with stuff. There's a reason why they say patience leads to wisdom.

In this digital age when we take for granted of the vast information at our finger tips.... I forgot where I was going with that, something about supporting non-spoilers. Especially when <censored> their <censored> with <censored>'s <censored>. And Twilights face.

On a more serious note, though I may have seen the episode, still can't wait for Saturday on account of all the fun things I find one Deviart that follows.

And now for something that did not happen in the episode. I must warn you, I suck at using muro.

It was an awesome episode! So the Cutie Mark Crusaders are trying to be CMC scientists, right? But then there's a chemical explosion which blasts a hole in the floor of Applejack's barn which turns out to lead into a tunnel to a secret ancient Inclop temple! And the CMC finds these mystical ancient artifacts there and they bring them back to the farmhouse, but they turn out to have the secret power to swap bodies! And when they leave them on the table to go eat some baklava, the artifact accidentally swaps the bodies of Big Mac and Applejack with Twilight and Rarity respectively! Meanwhile, Pinkie Pie is searching for the Ultimate cupcake recipe with Zecora, but she accidentally uses powdered poison joak instead of Powdered sugar and when she gets Rainbow Dash to taste test it for her it turns her into a frog! And only a kiss from Fluttershy can change her back, but Futtershy has gone mysteriously missing! It turns out that Fluttershy has joined Cheerilee on the quest to take the one ring back to Mount Doom and they end up riding on a flying whale across the continent! In the end, everything has to be cleared up by Princess Luna and her new faithful student, the Great and Powerful Trixie. And the moral is to make sure that you never eat baklava, or else your friends will end up like Lindsey Lohan, people will turn into amphibians, and Sauron will conquer Middle Earth.

I'm almost afraid to go through any of my dA watch messages for fear of getting something spoiled.
I love the show and can't believe Apple derped so big. I've always loved Saturday morning cartoons, and this show has brought that tradition back to my house.
I was tempted to get the episode last night, but just couldn't do it. I want to watch it "the proper" way. Then likely buy it.
