oh thank fuck! I couldn't sleep tonight and for some reason none of the sites cataloged on tvlinks were loading properly so after having read this thread I looked up this show on youtube with considerable reluctance, fearing I would become hooked. I'm relieved to say I found the two-part first episode utterly inane and have no desire whatsoever to watch another episode.

The first two episodes are the worst and in no way should be used to judge the series in a whole. Watch another episode other than those two THEN judge. Don't decide based on the two worst episodes.

yeah, except that I really don't want to get hooked and I only watched those two episodes out of extreme boredom, insomnia, and desperation. if they are the two worst episodes, then I consider myself as having dodged a bullet.

My body was not ready.
Also, Pinkie Pie really did watch paint dry to settle identity issues.

I find this relevant to this:

Already seeing a lot of people criticize the episode, and for one of the same reasons the S3 premiere got criticized. Some people feel that the multipinikies didn't show enough character and were just annoying as a plot device.
Here's the thing, though.
SPOILER wrote:
They were made out of reflections from a mirror pond. They are literally superficial copies, 2D characterizations. They're not supposed to have depth, which is why only the original Pinkie was capable of feeling remorse, regret, depression, and ultimately was the only one motivated enough to watch paint dry in order to be with her friends again.
The mirror clones were all surface because that's all the pond reflected. But just like the person you see in the mirror isn't another you, the Pinkies that came out of the pond weren't her.
I also felt that this kind of abstract characterization applied to Sombra in the premiere. He didn't do much of anything except lurk around the edges, constantly threatening to engulf the Crystal ponies but not actually materializing. That makes more sense when you consider that he wsa literally turned into a shadow in the distant past and only exists as a shadow for almost the entire story. There is no substance to him because he's just the memory of a past menace and the threat of a dark future, but doesn't belong in the present. He's vanquished by the Good Vibrations before his threat can actualize again. It's symbolic, you morans!


Also, Youtube versions are up.

I sincerely hope thats ironic spelling.

And I just watched the upload. I must agree the pinkies were kinda annoying but they fit the whole clone mentality quite well, and I giggled at the Pinkie-fingers and G1 Pinkie face. And yeah as far as bad guys go Sombra lacked character distinctly but I can see how his evil would require a bit of 'dusting off' (pun intended) upon his return after that long. We just have to hope future episodes are a bit more dramatic.
