Appearantly Maud isn't the only Rocktor in Ponyville :P

Right off the bat I have a feeling that this episode may get mixed feedback like for example "Newbie Dash".  
To me, however, it was surprisingly relatable episode. Sometimes when people are honest, they don't mince words and
don't take into account how things they say may affect other folks. I did encountered such situations before,
hell, probably more than once caused such thing. Of course it was in more toned manner than this episode, but still,
It was nice example that blunt honesty may be hurtful sometimes. Also, it's not often when between Rarity and AJ it's
Rarity who is the voice of the reason, so that too brought some novelty to their dynamic.

1) Celestial Advice ( ep1 )

3) Flurry of Emotions ( ep3 ) 
4) Honest Apple ( e9 )
5) Rock Solid Friendship ( ep4 )
6) Forever Filly ( ep6 )
7) Fluttershy Leans In ( ep5 ) 
8) Hard to Say Anything ( e8 )
9) All Bottled Up ( ep2 )

People do not want sincere opinions only that they second their own opinion. The criticism is part of the work of an artist, if they can not with it then it is better to retire. 
I also disagree with the point that it can not be hard because there is a lot of effort behind the product. They can last for years in doing so but nothing excuses the poor quality in it (I speak to you Ubisoft).

I didn't hate this episode, but I also didn't particularly like parts of it, particularly how over the top they made AJ. I knew they were going to as they have a track record of it, but I knowing the character that has been presented to us over the years I failed to see that AJ would be that callous and mean. The part where she destroyed the feather hat was the tipping point. That was not the act of a pony who was just being honest but not sensing how it was hurting somepony, that was just plain cruel and mean and that's not the AJ I've come to know. Also Rarity could have talked to AJ and reasoned with her to avoided a lot of the mess. I think she shares a lot of the blame but the episode seemed to play it off like it was all AJ.

I'm probably in the minority on this because if you remember, I actually liked the last episode (though not as much as I initially did-I've taken off another point in retrospect) but the consensus in the fandom was that it was a crap episode. So while I think this was one of my least favorite episodes, I'm prepared for others to give it a better ranking. However, mine is 5.5/10. Hopefully my review is still enjoyable ;).

SoC: Honest AppleThat dress doesn't make you look fat, your fat does. Your singing reminds me of when you start a car with a cat sleeping on the manifold. Your best friend is ugly and talks too much. I do listen, I just don't care for what you have to say. This is the worst meal I've ever tasted, did you even try? Yes, I was looking at that other woman, she's hot! I know if I were to say these things to a woman I was dating, it would sound cruel and mean. However, it's not because I'm a bad seed, I'm just an honest apple. Of course that was just another segue into my Stream Of Conscience review of this week's episode of MLP: FiM. I'm a pathetically lonely guy who has never dated before, but even I know these are things you don't voice, you just think them. Unless you find yourself in the plot for Liar Liar (if you never saw the movie, you're even more pathetic than me ;), there is no need to be this honest. However, with the horrible way they write for AJ, I'm pretty sure she will be exactly like that

Oh and Lily Lace's voice was a crime against humanity!

Eh, as far as I consider previous episode to be weakest so far, I don't consider it bad or crappy per se - that would be bit too harsh ;) I do think an Honest Apple will get some backlash. In similar fashion to Newbie Dash, Mare Do Well or Applejack's Day Off. Each to their own, I suppose, so, hey don't worry about that really, your opinion is your own and as long as it's true with your own feelings that's good :)

Nah, I think "Rock Boulder" works better.

Yeah, I found this episode extremely relatable too, since in the past I used to critique other people's writing. Now I know I wasn't doing a truly great job on it, since I acted pretty much as Applejack here.

Indeed, sometimes it's hard to keep a balance in terms of stating your opinion in a manner that won't offend anyone ;) I think that's something guys have especially problem with - I know, I'm one of them xD

I found out it's way better to be overly polite than to offend someone. However, when you are being overly polite, sometimes you get to be called a moron. By a ten years old. Talking to people on the Internet is hard.
saturdaymorningproj's avatar
Oh it is hard. I know that. Sadly, quite a lot of people don't feel like being polite when having converstation with other via internet and don't feel certain boundries that would hold them in real life conversation - that's said, but nothing new.
