FIRST!

YESSS! YESSS! Feed me those downvotes they only make me stronger. Nom nom nom nom

I can already see where this episode is going. Even without it being on youtube, I can still see where it's going. Some artificially-induced conflict that goes against Applejack and Rainbow Dash's personalities, all for the sake of selling a particular lesson.

And then both RD and AJ have angry hate sex.

4858717
They fight over who get to be on top.

From what I've gathered from behind the scenes, it seems like Fall Weather Friends meets Spike At Your Service. I hope it's at least remotely decent...

When will we have earth pony or pegasus villains? So far it's mostly unicorns.

4858711
Too bad. I upvoted. :trollestia:

4858762
NNNUUUUUUUUUUU!

Damn, its already been nine months since the school was formed?

savage pinkie, savage.

Welp, this is gonna go downhill reeeeeeeeal quick.

Also, doesn't surprise me in the slightest that Flutters has been TotM ever since the school's inception. Not completely sure why, it just doesn't.

4858773
I, also, was very surprised by the appearance of Snarky Pie.

Not sure if Twilight is trying to make a point to AJ and RD, or if she's just that oblivious.

thats a cool skill to have. and their not even to hide their compatition.

Very clever, AJ, getting the students to do labour for you like that. :unsuresweetie: :trollestia:

4858777
i think she's trying to make a point.

Honestly, this ep is starting to annoy me. I was looking forward to there being focus on the kids again. Instead we just have them as a catalyst and get another competition between Rainbow and AJ. :facehoof:
Not like I'm turning it off, but still. :ajbemused:

Well we the students are doomed

Also it has been 9 months since the school was open.

Fall Weather Friends: Child Abuse Edition

4858780
Well that sounds like a challenge. 20 quatloos on "oblivious" it is.

4858785
And oblivious confirmed.

oh the cheesey acting! its too much.

Balance the rivals need

Man, fuck this bullshit episode.

while its not perfect, i love the students reaction throughout this episode.

The constant losses against Fluttershy are really messing with those two heads that I may need a piko hammer for them

4858791
I feel like that's the best part of this episode.

All students: "Why are our teachers complete idiots?"

4858791
It's funny because it's sad

I really wish we got to see what the first few months of school were like instead of jumping, what, more than halfway through the school year?
(I wouldn't mind dropping Maud Couple for an episode of that...)
Eight months of getting to see the Student Six bond with the Mane 5, Twilight, and Starlight, gone

Snuffy #31 · May 12th · · 2 ·

This is why AppleDash is a terrible ship.

Raugos #32 · May 12th · · ·

Really now, Applejack's and Rainbow's skulls have attained the density of neutron stars in this episode. This feels like way too much contrivance, even by this show's standards. :facehoof:

The students are cool, though. They're easily the best part of this episode. Bonus points for Twilight's eyebrow raising.

Edit: Okay, a couple of extra points for the students thinking that AJ and RD were faking it to teach them a lesson. :derpytongue2: It doesn't make up for how thick they were, but that joke was legitimately funny.

they accidentaly made the perfect lesson.

Flying pairanas......Well we lose

At least they will get better

This hurt so much to watch, but it at least managed to be entertaining. Yona and Ocellus were great in this episode.

Yes, they were both awful, but Rainbow Dash was really gunning for c:yay:t of the month.

That Pirates of the Caribbean reference, though. And yet, I also thought of Emperor's New Groove.

Gallus' line, though :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

Really liking the new monsters introduced. Ocellus was a very good Bitacuda.

4858773 She had every right to roast them.

4858791
What, the one-note detached cynicism? That's exactly the opposite of Pony's appeal.

Ocellus is still totally my favorite of the Young Six. I don't think that's ever going to change.

4858786
so she wasnt totally oblivious.

Teachers were the students as the students were unawarly the Teachers

4858810
Starting oblivious and coming to a realization later is still oblivious. The made-up fake currency is mine!

Ashleigh Ball continues to argue with herself.

4858812
Ah yes, this bit of irony has not been explored in FiM at all.

*sweeps School Daze and the entirety of Season Six discreetly under the rug*

4858816
You'd think with the show winding down and budget left to spend they could afford to not cheap out and have their actors interact with other actors.

My reactions:

derpicdn.net/img/2018/5/12/1730879/medium.jpeg
So according to the amount of pictures, the School has been open for about nine months. I'd say the school is doing quite well! SUCK IT NEIGHSAY!

How does Fluttershy keep winning?!

Oh, this is a reference to Flutters being voted Best Pony isn't it?

OH WILL YOU TWO JUST KISS ALREADY?!

Wow, Pinkie throwing shade!

derpicdn.net/img/2018/5/12/1730885/medium.png
(Sighs) This is gonna be the whole episode isn't it?

Yay! The Student Six are back! Yona is sooooo cute!

AJ, what amount is a hoof-shaving?!

derpicdn.net/img/2018/5/12/1730900/medium.jpeg
Now I see why AJ picks RD to break barns down instead of building them....

derpicdn.net/img/2018/5/12/1730898/medium.jpeg
RD, I like you, but not everything NEEDS to be a record-breaking event. Tone down the drill sergeant attitude!

Biteacuda? Do piranhas not exist?

derpicdn.net/img/2018/5/12/1730913/medium.jpeg
Expert teamwork from Ocellus and Silverstream!

derpicdn.net/img/2018/5/12/1730915/medium.jpeg
OK, will you two STOP sucking up to each other?! Even the students are getting sick of this!

At least FIVE of you can FLY! Just fly up and check which route is safe!

(UGH) Insert Scooby-Doo joke here...

...aaaaand they're lost.

derpicdn.net/img/2018/5/12/1730942/medium.jpeg
THANK YOU GALLUS!

derpicdn.net/img/view/2018/2/17/1658392__safe_screencap_applejack_rainbow+dash_season+8_spoiler-colon-s08_spoiler-colon-s08e09_duo_fish_non-dash-compete+clause_peril_pony_trailer_trap.png
We interrupt this episode to bring you Pirates of the Caribbean.

derpicdn.net/img/2018/5/12/1730920/medium.png
OK, hearing Ocellus' voice coming out of something out of something that creepy is hilarious!

Great teamwork from the Student Six!

AJ, RD, you two are DARN lucky they covered for you two.

UGH, this episode was pure CRINGE! I liked the student six but RD and AJ were way too out-of-character in this! I mean yeah, they're competitive, but even THEY know there's a limit! Every time they got at each others throats it fellt completly forced.

I give this episode a 3.5 out of 10.

4858817
Well we can both agree this episode was bad...very bad but on the plus side more of the Student six ^^

4858807
same she's definitly stolen my heart.

4858826
She is sweetest and the most awesome

4858824
Eh, I agree with @Level Dasher. Ocellus is still the only one who appeals to me. Gallus and Sandbar were interchangeable here, and responsible for most of the detached cynicism to boot. Yona was plot device.
