So being the insane son of a bitch I am, I decided to partake in another monthly ARTIST TRAINING GROUND CHALLENGE!

Starting in June!

This theme is:


Bullet; Blue LEAST FAVORITE EPISODE(S) - FILLI VANILLI and SOMEPONY TO WATCH OVER ME Bullet; Blue

I've been waiting for this one a long time and now I can finally (and only time I will ever do this) DESTROY two episodes I absolutely fucking HATED!

Yes, MORE OPINIONS BEING JAMMED DOWN YOUR THROATS!!!!

If you liked these episodes, that is fine (I won't do anything mean if you disagree like hide your comment or whatever, no.), but I'm about to tear them open a new one and give them hell. 

These two episodes just outright OFFENDED me and were just so fucking horrible. Again OPINIONS! :iconohnoesplz:

Every point is pretty much illustrated in the drawing and what was wrong with it. But:


Filli Vanilli:

  • No established development of the Ponytones BEFORE the episode. They were just there for this episode. 
  • Pinkie Pie being a total ****!! No excuses, she was brutal and didn't make the situation ANY better for Flutters.
  • Apparently her friends forgot that Fluttershy is SHY and why would she ever be a part of a singing quartet in front of other ponies. IT'S IN HER FUCKING NAME!!
  • The Ponytones themselves are a mess. Has Rarity or Big Mac EVER have any development together prior? Why would Big Mac even be a part of this group? Doesn't he work FULL time anyways at the apple farm? What is he doing here?! 
  • Who the hell are these other two ponies with them, and why should I care about them?
  • Nothing wrong with Big Mac and the Turkey Call. That was probably the only funny part of the episode with him and Pinkie. Oh and the little Filly Zipporwhill. 
  • The Flutterguy voice I feel should only be used once during Bridle Gossip considering it's an iconic gag of the show and reusing it again just cheapens it validity. And even called it Flutterguy in the episode made me cringe.
  • For an episode of them being a singing group, they never really sing any other songs except the one. Hmm.....
  • The background pony thing isn't related to the episode, but just a silly rip on Twilight for not having much of a presence during that time during Season 4.

Somepony To Watch Over Me:
  • EVERYTHING APPLEJACK DOES! (In the first 15 or so minutes that is.)
I'll just copypasta my opinion from a previous journal:

This one greatly offends me in the sense of how BADLY Applejack was written in this episode. Scott Sonnenborn is the weakest writer in the new team because he has NO idea how to write a character because Applejack was just so all over the fucking place. Applejack was a STALKER to Applebloom and her behavior was unacceptable! Sure she worries about her sister and that is fine, but freaking turning it up to 11 and literally STALKING the poor filly was just BAD! Applejack had a job to do and had NO SAY anymore in the Apple family's decision to leave AB alone. Why are you still here? It's just unacceptable. 

We've also seen AB and the CMC's be left alone numerous times in other episodes and where was Applejack in those episodes? And what did AB get from the whole experience? Getting punished because she went out to do her older sisters job! Something in which Applejack FORCED her to do because she needed to get away. Last we checked before AJ arrives, AB was doing fine when she was alone. She was responsible! This was just a very weak episode and Sonnenborn didn't win me over with Trade Ya either because that episode, literally NOTHING happened and the ending was a cop out!


That's my thoughts on this matter. Onto Season 5.

not me (Or at least some of it), we seen applejack  when it comes to family (As seen with reunion.)  and to be fair it probably BECAUSE of those reasons she so hesitant about applebloom, cause unlike times where either applejack, mac or even granny can at the very least LOOK for applebloom. she be there alone, not to mention we seen the barn get destroy HOW many times. granted she overtook but still.)

and frankly i like the use of poison joke it shows one can refine it to a point where one can use it for only on affect if done correctly. as seen with flutterguy returns (Plus it show why she doesn't sound completely because that joke been refined.)

I meant for Filli Vanilli. It was some guy named Alvin Sanders.

I know you meant it for that episode, but I thought Blu was asked to do Flutterguy in BOTH occassions.

I just checked the wikia again, and you're right, Sanders made Flutterguy in Filli Vanilli, the voices are hella alike let me tell you that.

Although I do not have the same stance on these two episodes in particular (okay, we may stand very similar for the AJ one), your art representation of the episode was funny and spot on!

Good work!

Hay now leave Torch Song alone she's got a decent voice and ain't bad looking for a non cookie cutter pony. Plus you forgot aj's interrogation, that was pretty hilarious as well. The songs weren't bad but otherwise I agree with everything else. Hoof rare was the most interesting character in the episode thanks to a side of her being brought out.
