Let's Get This Out of the Way · 12:39am
Okay. So. Equestria Girls. You know, part of me can't help but wonder if there was a measurable uptick in today's traffic to the New York Times website because of this.
Anyway, we now have confirmation that this is a thing, it is a thing that is shoehorning FiM into a high school setting, and it is a thing where that setting will probably be played straight. Though, really, we've only seen Twilight stumble through hallways, walk into doors, and fail at hands. It's not likely, but I want to hope that they subvert the whole high school thing.
In case you can't tell, my reaction to this is cautious optimism tempered with low expectations. It's the same people doing this, so it can't be too terrible. In theory. Even in the worst case, I look at it as I did "The Mysterious Mare-Do-Well". Just because the premise is insipid and the conclusion is foregone doesn't mean that I can't enjoy myself. There will clearly be some redeeming moments. I look forward to them. Who knows? They may outnumber the bad ones.
And there's always looking for Derpy.
