Bullet; PurpleBullet; PurpleBullet; PurpleSEASON 4 ARTIST TRAINING GROUNDS DAY 27Bullet; PurpleBullet; PurpleBullet; Purple

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 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.

My thoughts on those episodes:

Filli Vanilli:  How is it that I'm the only person to notice the difference between this episode and the film "That Thing You Do?"  Because here's the main comparison points:

The groups name is the Ponytones, and the record company in the movie is Playtone.
Group really took off once a member got replaced by someone new due to an injury.
Other two members are as important as the fourth guy in the movie, who was only ever refered to as TB Player, or "The Bass Player".

Also, the band should just be called "Twilight's older brother", am I right?

Somepony to Watch Over me:  In the end, Apple Bloom was released from her grounding by Granny Smith, and instead Applejack was for almost putting the family back into bankruptcy and forcing them into prostitution...again.  Also, Rarity stole a bunch of their hats and bows.

I have to admit, Somepony Watch Over Me was the most WORST one in Season 4, no, the whole thing by far! Even Over A Barrel was better! Filli Vanilli didn't really bother me ._. Those writers are worse than before.

I still think that Filli Vanilli is an enjoyable episode, provided you can ignore the pink elephant in the room.

Totally agree with you about Applejack. I initally hated Pinkie Apple Pie(with the exception of Pinkie) because I also felt they were OOC with how they were so angry and arguing over everything when that's never been shown with the sole exception of Bridle gossip where AJ was very dismissive of her sister. (Let the big ponies talk) While the episode has grown on me now, especially with the song, STWOM still stinks.

On Filli Vinilli I disagree with you. I do agree Pinkie Pie felt WAY OOC considering back in season she refused to prank Fluttershy because of how sensitive she was. While episodes like A Friend Indeed do show that she can be ignorant of how off-putting she can be to people she was right in Fluttershy's face while she was crying and somehow didn't get it. That ticked me off.  Besides that though I thought the song was good and I loved seeing how happy Fluttershy was behind the scenes. Flutterguy didn't bother me. It's one of my higher episodes for season 4.

On a side note, like another person wrote, things just popping up to be relevant to the episode has occured several times before. For example, in putting your hoof down every pony suddenly become a jerk so Flutters could stand up to them, in Leap of Faith a bunch of ponies had bad injuries so that they would want to buy the miracle tonic.

Part of the problem with Flutters is her episode keep focusing on her overcoming fears and being more assertive, than backtracking it by the time the next episode comes around, because she won't be as cute that way.

Anywhoo.......still find the picture enjoyable.

TL:DR version: I agree with some points and disagree with others. =)

In all fairness...

>No established development of the Ponytones BEFORE the episode. They were just there for this episode.

That's how every episode works? Every episode specific character has little build up. Do you hate Coco Pommel too?

>For an episode of them being a singing group, they never really sing any other songs except the one.

I don't think they have the time or resources to make several different songs for any episode that isn't a season opener, finale, or special event like Pinkie Pride.

As for STWOM, I loved it, but can't really argue anything. I just thought it had a lot of good humor. Plus there are no words to describe how much I love the Chimera.

Coco is adorable. And you can't really compare Coco to the Ponytones because she's an actual character and alive. This is a band we never even heard of prior to this episode, no evidence of existence, no one EVER brought it up so we're supposed to assume they been around for a long time? And with RARITY and BIG MACINTOSH? Really? And that Fluttershy has been a big fan of them for a long time? 

Where the heck did this come about? XD

Yeah, these two were overall my least favorites as well, with the addition of Trade Ya (how pointless it would get and didn't offer anything truly original).

They're both just examples of despite of some good parts in the episodes can't overcome a huge, noticeable aspect (in this case OOC AJ and Pinkie) which brings down the huge thumbs down overall.

Also, while I understand why people would be a little annoyed with Pinkie's behavior, it was NOT cool for those people to send actual DEATH THREATS to Amy Keating Rogers over it. I'm serious; people actually did that.

I honestly didn't watch Somepony to Watch Over Me during my initial run through the season. I'm currently rewatching the whole series (and Equestria Girls) right now, and I'll probably watch that episode when I get to it, but with how everyone reacted to the episode, I'm a little afraid that it's going to affect my own personal enjoyment of the episode.

I did like Trade Ya, though. It was just one of those episodes that I put under the "harmless fun" category.
