<@> Aaaaaaand we're off
<> New episode!
<> Why is my stream like two minutes behind?
<> What, really? Darn, mine is too.
<> Please don't suck please don't suck please don't suck..
<@> So are the Equestria games another new season-long arc, like the GGG?
<> Not her!
<> Episode starting for me.
<> Aaah, don't overreact to this stuff, I'm still waiting for it to start! D:
<> Oh no, not her.
<> "Games Pony Play" was one of the worst episodes.
<> Let finish my banana and fire u
<> RD, don't interupt the gueast speaker.
<> Even if it is Hashwinny.
<@> During the commercial, hit refresh and see if the stream catches up
<> Unplug the tablet too
<> Not Ms. Peachbottom. :(
<> On the opening song, same with everytone else?
<> Opening song.
<> I do like the new visuals.
<@> Yeah... in addition to the new photo, it has Discord and Luna
<> Shoe comercial
<> Swap force looks silly.
<> Vacuum commercial.
<> And we are in sync!
<@> EDid you refresh the stream?
<> Closed and reopened.
<> I can hear my roommate, though, she's ahead.
<> I'm still on Littlest Pet Shop commercial.
<> Ponyville has a flag?
<@> Was that drawing juggling scorpions?
<> Please die in a fire Harshwinnie k thx.
<> I think it's juggling smaller ponies.
<> Interesting program descriptor on tv guide for this ep.."scottaloo (sic) convinced to fly ponyville flag for equestria games"
<> RD actually does need to stay professional.
<> "And this one time, at flight camp, I stuck a flag in my..."
<> I'm a terrible person.
<> You know, bringing back a character whose major character trait (and whose name) is being mean... not the best idea.
<> starting ep now
<@> So professional
<> I thik she's the only pony that would be ahppier not being surrounded by ponies.
<> @Scootaloo logic!
<> rd entrance...cal
<> Hey, it's a CMC episode that has diddly squat to do with cutie marks.
<> Isn't that supposed to be all over Equestria?
<> Intriguing... Ponyville is the only place where all three kinds meet.
<> So far this song is... acceptable.
<> skipping thru 1st commercials
<> What is this meter?
<> Good coriography for an improve song with children.
<@> Slab Bulkhead. Fridge Largemeat. Punt Speedchunk. Butch Deadlift.
<> AP--not true, there's ponies of multiple kinds shown in Canterlot and IIRC Manehatten.
<> Wwell, that's what they said, at least...
<> Little kid logic.
<> rd stop being so hyper
<> Da fuq why is Snowflake afraid of butterflies!?
<> OKay, the training montage is cute.
<> You've got hearts as strong as horses! We get it! XD
<> "We're like sharks right now."
<> lol XD
<> "Nailed it!"
<> How did you plan a routine thatt fast?
<> Blanks doesn't have anything to do with it!
<> Their cutie marks represent playing the spoons and cat's cradle.
<> This is truth in my brain, you will not convince me otherwise.
<> Hey, they realize they can win without marks!
<> 1500 hours...sharp
<@> This commercial is awesome
<> Yeah, bear-fighting kid has nothing on smoothies.
< this is pretty much shaling upa> So far
<> to be run of the mill cmc ep
<> Also, aren't horses from Saddle Arabia?
<> first song is not too bad
<> Those are the only horses we've seen, but there's nothing that says there aren't other horses elsewhere.
<> The episode's alreaedy half-over, and nothing has happened so far. :/
<> Snow storm IRL, darn it.
<@> Does Fleur de Lis count?
<> Power stay o power stay on power stay on...
<> She's just anorexic.
<> Yes, spoiled rich brats. Spy on others' routines instead of developing your own, that always works.
<> It's going to be good and the ep is about them getting sabotaged isn't it?
<> Okay RD trying to stay calm is hilarious!
<@> Oh, Diamond Tiara
<> "But how do we stop them? We already called them blank flanks! That's our entire skillset!"
<> "Remember, if you're bullied, it's just because they're jealous."
<@> The scene from the comic-con animatic
<> looking down on the cmc w/o cutie marks is so old hat
<> DT no, that's too evil.
<> Are they...they are.
<@> Yes, yes they are
<> Oh yes, pick on the disabled kid.
<> Okay, they are just evil ow.
<> That's like Veronica Mars rich kid level of rich kid evil.
<> It is *clearly* time for the proletariat to unite.
<> Watching her fight to fly... :(
<> 5 times as hard!
<@> Use special effects! Magician-levitation wire!
<> Hire Trixie!
<> WTF RANDOM AD JUST INTERRUPTED THE EP I WILL DESTROY ALL THAT LIVES
<> I can't find this funny. It's just too sad. :(
<> I know, it's sad.
<> WHERE ARE THESE ADS COMING FROM?
<> Disabled kid episodes really are
<> scootaloo determined to fly
<> Okay, they're demonstrating again.
<> ANd now it looks like what we expect a CMC attempt to look like.
<> Wait, no, it just skipped at least one scene.
<> ...can Scootaloo fly now? WHAT DID I MISS?
<> Scootaloo, no, bad!
<> Okay, no, she's still struggling.
<@> She can hover in place for like 3 seconds
<> And the stream just cut out.
<> 20 times as hard! 30! 50!
<@> All our streams are out of sync
<> i'd rather hasue syvester as coach rather than coach rd
<> I feel so bad for her now.
<> This is DISASTROUS.
<> And it seems like there's actually a pretty good episode underneath these technical difficulties and confusions.
<> Wait, why is there a train?
<> Poor Scootaloo...AB that's not how you handle this problem!
<@> They were heading to the Crystal Empire... for some reason
<> How much you want to bet the commercials play perfectl fine with no issues?
<@> HAHAH! Oh, next week's episode looks awesome!
<> I'm glad, at least, to see all three of them reacting differently to something in a meaningful way.
<> POwer Ponies looks fun.
<> Okay, next time we're having the liveblog at like 2 in the afternoon and using a Youtube video. No technical difficulties/unsynched streams, and I get to sleep in.
<> Fluttershy at build a bear...*grabs keys and drives*
<> Yeah, should be good. I want to see what all their powers are.
<@> Works for me
<> Power Ponies looks good, yeah.
<> *comes back* oh wait, closet brony.
<> "Hello, sir. How may I help you?" "FLUTTERSHY! NOW!"
<> AP--that's what I'd be like if I knew where there was a Build-a-Bear.
<> It's Season 3 again!
<@> For a second I thought they were singing either "Babs Seed" or Sugar Rush
<> ah, back to real time for me
<> "Seat Pet, Seat Pet, what we gonna do?"
<> Show back!
<> Okay, will Scootaloo be confirmed to never fly in the show?
<> scootaloo staying home
<@> "Seat Pet, Seat Pet, jump into your racing... er... pet?"
<@> I doubt they'll end the Disabilities Episode™ by saying, "Hey, kids, a disability is something you can overcome by wishing really hard!"
<> Remember, if your friend doesn't want to participate with you, you must force them to come along or you're a bad friend.
<> DT & SS are so evil.
<> NO NOT THE SCOOTER
<> Rainbow dash doing her best i press
<> Well, but... positive peer pressure?
<> I do not like them one bit either.
<> Yeah, I think they have officially out-evilled Babs Seed at this point.
<> best impression on sue sylvester and mr. shue
<> Is that her room? :O
<> They out eviled Nightmare Moon at this point.
<> Wow, Scootaloo isn't homeless1
<> Well she's not an orphan now.
<> She could still be an orphan.
<> This could be the room in her orphanage. :P
<@> The feels!
<> YAY, SONG REPRISE!
<> Thank you RD, you got this thing! God job with the emotional stuff and dealing with a deficult subject.
<> I also like the "citizenship above self" message.
<> Yeah, RD did surprisingly well as the coach.
<> Are they...outspeeding a train!
<> Scoots is just that awesome.
<> remeber professionalism
<@> And serves Harshwinny right
<> That was pretty darn good!
<> power ponies?
<@> That was great!
<> Way to put Harshwinny in her place, RD.
