First! Nyaa-Nyaa!:derpytongue2:

Say what!?! Go get em Big Mac!

So many headcannon's are going to be destroyed. :raritydespair:

Oh boy... Here we go. Prepare for the shipping wars to ignite...

4530831 To say nothing of the Fluttermac supporters. This is going to be ugly.:fluttershyouch:

4530833 let them all burn! This is the era of Sugarmac!:pinkiecrazy::pinkiecrazy::rainbowwild::rainbowwild:

So long, Fluttermac, Cheerimac and Marblemac.

This episode sounds lovely! It may contain many cute moments...my heart may not survive :rainbowkiss:

At this rate, Big Mac will start a harem :rainbowlaugh:

4530839 Ah, SugarMac. The name alone indicates sweetness :ajsmug:

[youtube=PkhJOsag8PQ]

So long fluttermac, cheerimac, and marblemac. At this point I think the writers are doing this just to mess with the fandom and see what they can cause.

So long fluttermac, cheerimac, and marblemac. At this point I think the writers are doing this just to mess with the fandom and see what they can cause.

It’s a safe bet they’re going to forget about Sugarmac entirely by the end of the season, anyway.

I just wanna know more about why sugarbelle wanted to join starlight's cult in the first place!

New headcannon Big Macintosh is a harem protagonist.

Can anyone provide a link to a livestream? We blasphemous Americans that want to see the episodes ahead of time need a hand.

Edit: Wait, I haven't even seen Parental Glideance yet... HOW FAR AHEAD ARE YOU CANADIANS??? :flutterrage:

4530886
That brings up the question of why bring up this plot point out of nowhere if it's going to be dropped just as quickly...

I already made a group a while ago

Big belle

“We haven’t done anything with Big Mac lately, remember that episode about, what’s the word, Hearts and Hooves day? Good times.”

Cutie Mark Crusader Shipper Ponies!

Big Mac is a playa.

Vincent Tong trying to woo Rebecca Shoichet.
FlashShimmer confirmed.

That was a nice episode, overall. Feather Bangs reminded me of Kevin from Steven Universe.

The ship has landed people. I repeat: the ship has landed!

Cute episode,, and I like how they mantion love potion, but why no word abou Marble Pie? Do we really need Suger Bell to be his "first" crush? Also, this guy at the end just get harem? He never said he want's just one of them. :rainbowlaugh:

4530936

I thought of him as a backstreet boy. Also does one of those "admirers" resemble Sugarcoat?

Dang it no marx bros reference 0/10 episode

4530841
They'll always be his side hoes

Wait... didn't we do something like this already involving Love Poison? :ajbemused:

:ajsleepy: *Sighs* CMC, ever heard the saying "Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it"?

4530841 Must not forget Caramel/Mac. ...I think we can safely say that ship has been sunk.

Wow, we just saw the death of the second biggest straight ship. Also, Feather Bangs is the new harem master.

You've got this, Big Mac. Can't believe Canada gets to see this one today.

You go, Big Mac! :ajsmug:

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVERY Ship you know is wrong
SugarMac is here to stay along
And everything you wrote as fanfic has sunken into Davey's Jones locker
Because every ship you know is WROOOO-O-O-O-O-NG!

Weird Al should sing this!

There's a lot wrong with the story here...

1: The setup didn't work with the rest of the story at all. I know a girl isn't obligated to having only one potential suitor before anything has been stated, but her spending actual money getting Big Mac to the village to see him and NOT telling him that she likes him is the kind of thing you'll only see in cartoons.

2: If she doesn't like big grand romantic gestures, why did she fall for every single one before the ending? Shouldn't she have told Featherbangs to go away long ago?

3: Is Sweetiebelle swooning over Featherbangs during the kiss scene? That comes out of nowhere and is never referenced again. Perhaps a storyline that was cut for time, or creep factor.

4: Again, if she is the one who keeps summoning him to the village, WHY IS HE THE ONE TRYING TO TELL HER HOW HE FEELS INSTEAD OF THE OTHER WAY AROUND? The episode would be narratively stronger, and significantly less offensive to women, if it was about her trying to express her feelings to him (or if they had found other excuses to get the two of them together that didn't involve her clearly liking him). As it is it just perpetuates the notion of a woman making herself a prize to be won in a contest between men. Even when she was the one making contact she's still sitting around waiting for him to make the first move instead of telling him herself that she likes him.

5: Nose-nuzzles? Really? I know this is a kid's show but we've seen kisses in it before. Or are kisses reserved solely for married couples?

I wouldn't say it was the worst episode, or even particularly bad, there was just a lot about it the way it was set up and executed that bugs me. Otherwise I'd describe it as "alright, I guess".

4531000 That does would Weird Alish. Quick, someone bring up a pic of Cheese Sandwich! Wait, I already did! (Bonus points to anyone who gets the movie I'm referencing there.)

Oh God, they actually shipped PERMANENTLY an OLD ESTABLISHED character for the first time!

That mean other ships can happen too, like StarBurst or FlutterCord!

4530981 It's the writers who forgot. Not the CMC.

Huzzah! Streams have been found and I'm caught up! Anyway...

Nice to see Big Mac actually talking more. The whole 'eyyyup'/'nnnope' gag was getting old. Glad to see him actually getting some development outside of being in disguise (Orchard Blossom).

Not sure what to make of the CMC deciding to help Feather Bangs after the whole ordeal, but I guess he has just as much a right to try and find love as anyone else, even if he was being kind of a dick.

Meh, I guess. 6/10

Oh, and I almost forgot:

If you haven't read the comics, there's also LunaMac. :heart:

Reading the comments here have killed my interest in this week's episode. I'm not even gonna bother with trying to watch it.

4530909

This is why we're better than you.

That and not having a borderline insane man-child in charge of the country. Taste the pain.

TASTE IT!

4531016 Really, did you have to bring HIM into this? Really?:facehoof:

4531016 Apologies for whoever downvoted that comment, because...

having a borderline insane man-child in charge of the country

...you're right. :facehoof:

4531018 Well, he did...
And now the flame war begins.

4531022 I was the one who downvoted it because I knew exactly what would happen if he was brought into this. And to be honest, you are very right. It's shameful what passes for presidency nowadays.

4530960 They make me think of triplets from Beauty and the Beast

4531025
Ah.
Oh, and sorry for the spam replies re: ships. Didn't see that two of those were both you. :twilightsheepish:

4530981 There's a major difference. Mac actually wanted this beforehand.

4531028 I didn't even notice the spam replies, funnily enough. Shows how observant I am, doesn't it?:derpytongue2:
