Gak is a type of putty and there were a LOT of commercials about it before, during and after the premiere episodes. :P

I liked these episodes. They weren't mind-blowing, but they were good. They were premieres, after all, not finales.And of course it means that more is soon to come, so woo!

I'm sad to say I'm not impressed with the opener. I feel the baddie was wasted mainly because he didn't really do anything. But maybe I was expecting too much due to what we got for Season 2's opener and finale. And there was no real... I don't know... hook? I wasn't really drawn into the story all that much. I still like MLP, but this just wasn't that great.Also, what was up with the book at the end with Celestia and Luna?Kalhiki

I agree that the songs, while good, seemed a little forced.Compared to Nightmare Moon, Discord, and Queen Chrysalis, I'd have to agree that Sombra was heavily underused. I could see him making a comeback, though, especially since his horn was shot off into the distance rather than destroyed. Maybe he'll return in the speculated MLP movie.Unlike the Season 2 finale, I like how this opener gave the other ponies more screentime. Particularly Fluttershy, my favorite pony. Jousting has never been so cute.I think one of the most gripping parts was the Door of Fear (my own fan name, pass it on). In a way, it helps shed a little more light on who King Sombra is, commanding that sort of power. And just the shock value of Celestia abandoning Twilight.

I'm going to have to rewatch it without GAK commercial breaks.

I rewatched the episodes last night, and considered watching them with the commercial breaks this time, since the first time I watched it I missed out on the Gaksplosion. But since it was already late, I decided it would be easier to buffer a 45 minute video than an hour-long video.

Frankly, the kooky old librarian made the episode for me. Seriously, it's a lot of fun to hear a character give an exposition heavy rant, then suddenly go ADD for some funnel cake. :PI'll have to disagree with most of you about the lack of characterization King Sombra received. I think that our fandom tends to be overly focused on the villains, partially because the previous villains have received an exceptional amount of development (Discord, Chrysalis, etc.). When pictures of King Sombra got leaked, I think a lot of us expected him to be another Discord or another Chrysalis. However, this episode wasn't about Sombra; it was about Twilight's development as a student, with a steaming sidedish of world building. For better or worse, Sombra was never intended to have the same kind of presence as previous villains, so it feels a little silly to rant about what he wasn't. ^_^

I agree. I think there's room for more generically evil characters like Sombra in addition to buckets of personality like Discord. And I appreciate how much emphasis the episode placed on Twilight's relationships with both Celestia and Spike, and fear that a more developed Sombra would only have distracted from that.

Definitely just you. Ponyville Confidential came directly before the wedding, and it was my favorite episode of the last season. And I thought the premiere last week was pretty good, too.

Probably not. While writers are certainly aware of fanon by this point, I'm fairly certain that they are prohibited from reading fan fiction for legal reasons, as is the case with most writers.It's almost laughable how often the argument "OMG brony reference!" is thrown about. Last season Rainbow Dash got a pet tortoise and broke her wing. Fluttershy dressed up as a tree. Princess Luna was awkward in social situations. Overall, most of these things are jokes that came naturally to the fans and writers alike. Fast character should have a REALLY SLOW PET. Athlete character getting an injury would be an interesting plotline. Didn't we make a joke about Fluttershy being a tree back in Season One? Luna's been away for a thousand years; let's have an episode in which she tries to adjust! I honestly don't see how "let's force the fun-loving character to do something infamously boring!" or "horses don't actually have hands, but think how silly it would be if they did!" are any less obvious to the writers than they are to the fans, especially since many of the writers are fans themselves.The sad thing is that I doubt these accusations will go away any time soon... but ah, well. It's a part of every fandom, I suppose.

So apparently having ADHD merits capital punishment in Equestria. Good to know. :confused:Jokes aside, I was a little disturbed by how Twilight simply zapped away the clones. While one can argue that they weren't true clones based on their single-minded pursuit of fun, inability to recall Pinkie's memories, and lack of consideration for the consequences of their actions, it still seems to me that it would qualify as taking a life. Yes, I know Twilight described her spell as "sending them back into the mirror", but visually it looked more like it was deconstructing them and dumping the raw magic used to create them back into the pool.

I love how all of Ponyville goes straight to Twilight to solve their problems.I like how, as I interpret it, it was left unsaid if the depressed Pinkie Pie (I nicknamed her Mopey Pie) was real or a duplicate. Very deep when you think about it. The whole thing reminds me of the Clone Army from Star Wars.
