Option 1: Whenever you watch the episode, comment on this post as you watch with whatever responses you feel like posting!
Option 2: Go to http://webchat.freenode.net/. Enter a nickname, then for the Channels field enter ##rabbitcube, and finally fill in the Captcha and hit Connect! We'll be watching the episode and commenting there starting at 3:00 p.m. EST. However, I will probably not be participating because I'm busy with family stuff, so I'd appreciate if one of you could copypasta the chatlog to a comment. Whenever I actually watch the episode, I will update this post with my own responses.
Speaking of which, I updated last week's liveblog a couple of days ago.
Chatlog for "Leap of Faith" below the cut!
<> OMG Big Mac and Applejack splashing SO ADORBS
<> BUT WHY DO THE APPLES GET MORE EPISODES THAN EVERYONE ELSE COMBIENS
<> Is this a Granny episode?
<> Granny is the best Apple!
<> And this silent film thing is awesome.
<> You know, the opening credits need a couch gag.
<> Like, maybe the final picture is slightly different every episode.
<> Dear Princess Celestia: Today I learned that athletic competition should be left to the races that are good at it.
<> Seriously WTF Granny, "Leave it to the pegasi?"
<> OH MY GOD THE FLIM FLAM BROTHERS!
<> I did NOT expect them to come back!
<> Oh my god Doctor Whooves for the better time!
<> YES now they're the medical-industrial complex instead of ust generic capitalism!
<> Fun fact: snake oil actually IS good for you, it's full of Omega-3.
<> THEY EVEN HAVE AN AUDIENCE PLANT THIS IS THE BEST!
<> Oh no. Poor Granny. She's pondering getting them to heal her hip, isn't she?
<> This is why I never hope. Hope is evil.
<> Also, given that I'm watching Baccano! at the moment, this is gaining extra creepiness.
<> hay fever
<> Wow, that was quite the final sting.
<> No, there's no tonic in Equestria that can make an old pony young again, but it's amazing what a dose of confidence and some old-fashioned placebo effect can do.
<> Granny is going to hurt herself so bad.
<> The tonic is about 80% Flim-Flam pee and 20% year-old cider.
<> Farm pony with big glasses? He's going to turn into Superpony, isn't he?
<> Heheh, "Shill."
<> This is the episode where Applejack teaches someone an important lesson about Honesty and gets her crystal coffer key, isn't it?
<> And it'll be Shill that learns the lesson.
<> Apple juice and beet leaves? Ew.
<> Hmm, this is actually a good dilemma for Applejack! Honesty vs. her family's happiness!
<> And now Applejack is morally complicit in everyone hurt by the fake tonic.
<> APPLEJACK WHAT ARE YOU DOING
<> Either you have somehow forgotten that the tonic is fake, or you are hatching a Wacky Scheme (tm) liable to get your GRANDMOTHER injured!
<> Hmm, I'm noticing a lot of the same ponies in line as earlier in the episode.
<> Nothing so toxic or easily manipulated as hope.
<> Yep, and that's why people with a reputation for honesty have an obligation to actually be, y'know, honest. Including with themselves.
<> Okay, their routine is actually really beautiful.
<> lol, Lyra.
<> This is quite possibly the best Applejack episode ever.
<> She is getting ACTUAL CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT and CONSEQUENCES and DILEMMAS
<> Applejack is going to end up breaking the record, isn't she?
<> Or not. Dang.
<> Yay, another double-moral1
<> Jimmy Stewart! That's who Shill reminds me of!
<> That is PERFECTION ITSELF.
<> Yeah, that bit is the next key, isn't it?
<> Okay, yeah, that was a really good episode.
<> Not quite MAUD PIE good, but what is?
<> Though structurally, it was notably VERY similar to Rarity in Manehattan. Still, good stuff.
