Season 3 Premiere. I expected a lot more. Really... Stand alone, I agree that Sombra's performance as a villain was very sub-par, but I think that the story doesn't end here; this episode will influence a lot of  Season Three Pon

Stand alone, I agree that Sombra's performance as a villain was very sub-par, but I think that the story doesn't end here; this episode will influence a lot of Season 3.
>Trixie finds surviving horn of Sombra.
>Turns to necklace (pic shown)
>Uses it's power to take over Ponyville
>Is defeated
>Sombra corrupts and appears several times in S3
>S3 finale, Sombra gains enough power and reincarnates, and overall does better

That's my prediction so far. So I'm ignoring Sombra as of now and focusing more on the animation and music, which were undoubtedly the most amazing parts of this.

You missed the part where Trixie turns all ponies to gak

So, just saved an ENTIRE empire, yep, single handedly; twilight didn't even help, and neither did Cadance. Yep, it's just me, beat that shadow guy solo. Yep.   
   
Oh, and I got my own glass pane today; nothing big; twilight isn't in it this time so it just goes to show how important I am. Feel free to shower me with bits and gems.

It's stretchable, squishable, squeezable. IT'S GAK!

Don't understand why all the negative feedback, I personally thought it was amazing and they once again outdid themselves. Also I approve of the amount of Rarity in that episode.

I agree with everything you just said

I like that she wasn't a total bitch like usuall, although I don't think it would have killed her to share a few scarfs with the others since... you know... she is the ******* element of generosity and all.

Was just too predictable really, discord / chrysalis episodes were much more inventive and interesting.
User avatar #17 to #11 - xXsTeVeXx (11/10/2012) [-]
I second that notion.
User avatar #1 - xXsTeVeXx (11/10/2012) [-]
Yeah, the season 2 premiere was much better.
User avatar #8 to #1 - malhaloc (11/10/2012) [-]
Hard to beat Discord. But yeah they could have done a lot more with the villain. The whole concept was cool, like the episode could have been amazing. But it wasn't really handled right I guess.
User avatar #12 to #8 - xXsTeVeXx (11/10/2012) [-]
It also felt like the just shoved Shining and Cadence in there, they didn't have much real purpose, especially Shining.
User avatar #19 to #12 - malhaloc (11/10/2012) [-]
Not sure why they were even at the Crystal Empire to begin with (I caught the first episode half way through). There may have been a reason but it just felt like they woke up and said "Hey Shining? The Crystal Empire needs a force field." "Your turn."
User avatar #21 to #19 - xXsTeVeXx (11/10/2012) [-]
The plot behind that was a guard rushing in saying, "It is back" then Twilight and Spike doing a terrible song. There wasn't any real reason behind it.
User avatar #23 to #21 - malhaloc (11/10/2012) [-]
IMO there wasn't really anything terrible in the episode, the song included. But it was all very...meh
User avatar #24 to #23 - xXsTeVeXx (11/10/2012) [-]
Relative to other songs like This Day Aria and Flim and Flam's song, it wasn't to good. They had a load of potential, but wasted it all.

I'm going to send you a donkey and some lube, so you can shove that Eeyup up your ass.

They should have gone more in depth with the villain. He looked like he could make for a cool character.
Also, why are people with goatees always villains?

I agree with you, the villain wasn't even a flat character. Discord was far better. As for goatees, I blame feminazis.
#9 to #5 - pokemonstheshiz (11/10/2012) [-]
I think my expectations were a little high. It's pretty hard to top Discord
#14 to #9 - xXsTeVeXx (11/10/2012) [-]
Discord was fecking awesome. One of the best villains I've seen in a long time.

They should have gone farther in with the plot. It didn't draw the viewer in well. We didn't experience the tyranny Sombre was to bring, so we didn't really see anything praiseworthy.
User avatar #30 - regdestroy (11/10/2012) [-]
The villain did nothing... Why? Why would you make an episode where the villain just waits to get his ass kicked....
User avatar #2 - ytzion (11/10/2012) [-]
i didn't like sobra, the evil unicorn..and the plot was too similar to the end of season 2 in my opinion

I dunno, the premiere had GAKGAKGAK, so there's that.
#42 - longpubes (11/11/2012) [-]
it didnt have enough plot, not even a little development for the king, should've been a three part premier
User avatar #38 - kaelanduck (11/11/2012) [-]
King Sombrero had much more potential as a villain.
User avatar #37 - thesoulless (11/11/2012) [-]
the last few episodes will just be the gak commercial over and over for half an hour

the premiers for season 1 & 2 were better and less predictable but i still enjoyed it

**** yeah MLP is finally going downhill.

I mean it was **** from the beginning but now the ponyfags are starting to realize it.
User avatar #32 to #27 - itroitnyah (11/10/2012) [-]
I generally think it's going to end up a lot like pokemon, where after an undetermined period of time, the episodes start to get less and less entertaining, and the writers for the show come up with less and less entertaining episodes. So even after the episodes stop becoming incredibly entertaining, the fanbase will still be there, but the excitement over the episodes won't be there.

However, like I said, the amount of time until the episodes start their actual downhill slide is undetermined, and largely up to opinion.

So the first 2 episodes of the 3rd season weren't perfect. That doesn't mean the entire series is going down hill. If this continues to the end of the season, then it's a problem.
