There was little to no Mane 6 present in the episode, it was mostly for side characters. I'm also not a huge fan of the CMC. I'm not saying the episode was bad, I liked it and found a lot of parts funny. I just didn't find it AS good.
Mm, yeah. I see where you're coming from. The CMC are a source of many plots, however, taking the focus from one character in the beginning (Twilight was arguably the main protagonist throughout all of season 1) to six characters (with Lesson Zero, having all of the Mane 6 be able to write letters, this somehow expanded to everypony...?) to now nine characters. If they plan to roll out season after season (which I hope they do) with hundreds of episodes, perhaps this is a logical position to take. However, with all the possible stories involving just one character, focusing on six and three separately is sort of attention-dividing. Though I may be wrong in my analysis.
its simple, i'll be the bringer of hearts so ppl can buy them, scoot you be the cupid who shoots those bows of love and sweetie bell you can be the one who puts on the love music, *i apper* love music aaa? *listens* yuk, hehe time for some james brown music *swishes record*
ooh look our first lovers,
*scoot shoots the aroow hitting the middle of the bench which makes them go dreamy eyed* *applebloom then offers them some nice hearts* *sweetiebell then puts on the music, and instead of james last/jim revees/(insert love music theme) james brown plays, and the two ponies start to kiss and get down*
SWEETIEBELL! that wasn't the record i choose! *i apper again* hehe nope, but i think that's a better one, c'mon, lets spread more errr love *quickly walks them away as sounds of moaning and sweet love making are heard*
Scoots can't even sit on a tree without falling and cant really concentrate for too long, how is she supposed to shoot an arrow with such percision, something that takes much longer than a few hours of practice to do, along with very good balance. just saying.
I also saw the leaked episode. My thoughts were kind of a dissapointment? I was hoping this would be the first real ship, and the first real cutie mark crusaders sucsess. Turns out it was just a bunch of hullabaloo.
