    Okay I have started watching MLP Season 8 again. Interestingly I think at this point both my favorite and least favorite episodes of it are both Discord episodes, having just seen A Matter Of Principals falling into the latter

    Yes, the Seasons 8 and 9 KO a Character is something I think would be good to be restarted, but I think as the OP you should let other users eliminate the first episode as you did originally back in July, as that was a service I offered in the last two threads for the series, 4/5 and 6/7, so it feels to other users like they have all the options. Plus then I might be able to use it to for possibly the first time ever in a KO a Character get the pick for last place, as especially this thread is very important to me.

    Though I can't guarantee I won't just eliminate AMoP first again though because it's my least favorite episode so far of what is my least favorite season so far

    (Right now the only other episode I've seen aside from the ones you mentioned was The Hearth's Warming Club to avoid spoilers)

    Ok, I'll delete that post I made eliminating Yakity-Sax, and you'll delete your post eliminating Matter of Principals. Sound good to you?

    When I tried to type in “The Saddle Row Review” on my profile wall it tried to autocorrect it to “The Saddle Row Re Jew” lmao

    “But Shadow Prince, just turn autocorrect off!” Yes I’m going to look into how soon
    Hey, Shadow Prince. I started watching the FiM episodes I need to see yesterday. I'm glad I got back into the series, and I even watched the episode where the CMC finally got their Cutie Marks before I started season 8.

    But… the copy of episode 7 of Season 8 that I saw had no music and basic sound effects. Not to mention it was uploaded to Youtube before Season 8 even premiered. But other than that, things have been going good, and I'm liking the episodes a lot.

    So, today I watched episodes 9-12 of Season 8 (plus Keep Calm and Flutter on, Make New Friends But Keep Discord, and Dungeons and Discords, because I thought I should get used to Discord's good side and his character traits before watching The Break-Up Breakdown.)

    I agree with your thoughts on Non-Complete Clause. RD and AJ did not get along at all, and there wasn't really a satisfying conclusion towards the end. They were both trying to compete for teacher of the month, and I just thought that their bond development in Fair Weather Friends was completely forgotten about here. I had a tough time watching it, so it'll probably be on my stinker list.

    The copies of Molt Down and The Break-Up Breakdown had no music and basic sound effects just like Horse Play did, but they're probably going to be the last ones in the playlist to have this issue (surprisingly, the copy of The Parent Map was also uploaded before Season 8 premiered, (as was the case for Horse Play, Break-Up Breakdown, and Molt Down) but it had the music still intact). I enjoyed them despite the music being absent, and I like that Spike grew wings and Big Mac and his girlfriend reconciled, though I didn't like the CMC's role in the latter episode. It felt confusing, and I wanted them to be the reason why Sugar Belle left Big Mac.

    I liked the Discord episodes I watched before Break-Up Breakdown a lot. I think Discord's an alright character, his chaos can be funny at times but also quite useful in certain situations. He's also got a soft side to him to as well, and I can see why he and Fluttershy get along so well. I only viewed him as a bad guy prior to this (even though I never saw the Season 2 premier), but now I understand his appeal a lot more than I used to. I've never played Dungeons and Dragons, but I really liked when Spike and co. played it together, and I also enjoyed seeing Discord at the gala (though I didn't like the Smooze that much).

    Marks for Effort was not good, except for one thing. Cozy Glow isn't as bad as I thought she'd be, though she might just be playing her niceness up before she reveals her true intentions. I didn't like how boring it made Cheerilee's School seem for the CMC, and them being made honorary graduates without doing any classes at Twilight's School was disappointing. I thought their attempts at getting into the school were really immature for their age as well, and the episode just felt confusing to me.

    Did you see Fake It Till You Make It, Non-Compete Clause, or Marks For Effort as the worst?

    You should try to find versions of the episodes with better sound, as audio can still play an effect into the overall quality of the episode.

    I haven’t seen any episodes past Mean Six yet so as Rarity herself says in The Saddle Row Review, “NO SPOILERS!” Though I plan to start the second half very soon

    I'd have to say the middle one. Not only was it tough to get through, but it didn't have a satisfying conclusion and handled both the Friendship Lesson and RD and AJ's bond in the worst way possible. I didn't find one good thing about it to say throughout the course of the entire episode, and it also feels like a huge retcon written by someone who didn't see Fall Weather Friends prior to getting their idea submitted.
    I’m getting closer to there not being more than two episodes of Danny Phantom I’ve seen that I haven’t reviewed in my thread for each time I watch two episodes
    Saying "I think people are not quite as good for not being straight, but won't judge you if you don't" to not seem like a bigot doesn't help your case because you're still marking off an entire group of people as inferior
    Arguing with parents is like Turnabout Big Top, because they act like clowns and usually when you press them on something ridiculous they say you get in trouble.

    What even were the sex rules for Britain’s time period in Ryunosuke’s world? Idk but maybe there’s somehow a case explaining it in TGAA but since I don’t have Chronicles who knows except who’s played it
    Yesterday wasn't bad because I was able to make a compromise with my dad about getting access to the eShop for a bit to add more money just before eShop cards close for the 3DS/Wii U (and I bought a few games including Yoshi's New Island, as well as Spirit of Justice before Dual Destinies because of the latter's M rating). I know there is a way I can overturn Parental Controls but I am not going to at least yet because that is part of my game of chess. I don't think it's wise to explain exactly what my strategy is in public though.
    Alright here are my thoughts on Season 8’s first half:
    This half, while not all bad and still with episodes I liked, is probably the weakest list of 13 episodes out of any of them for the show; up until now that was the first half of Season 1 but I’d say it has less standout episodes even than it.

    My favorite episode so far of Season 8 is The Break-Up Breakdown, with funny jokes especially with Discord, a good heart, a good moral about not jumping to conclusions as that’s something I’ve been working on a lot, and it being satisfying to finally have another fast-paced Discord episode.
    My least favorite episode so far of Season 8 is Non-Compete Clause for it being a boring rehash episode of Applejack and Rainbow Dash’s competition in Fall Weather Friends as they’re suddenly extremely hostile to each other again, except for the Student Six finally having a greater role being fun.
    It was an interesting trend the second half of the Twelfth Poll Committee as each of my polls aired in sets of two, and each of the two polls had a similar topic, with Autoscrolling levels/Double Dash mode both covering game mechanics, the Nintendo news/Most needed Nintendo improvement both covering general decisions by Nintendo, and Mario Strikers/Mario entry frequency both having to do with new Mario entries.
    The pizza and quesadillas where I'm staying are good. I'm planning to switch to a vegetarian diet at some point soonish but those will make it not quite as easy, heh.

    But you don't need meat for either of those two right?
    Turnabout Big Top
    Turnabout Big Top
    That’s true but they taste a lot better with meat. I just might wait a bit to start a diet because of that, but I may shoot for it at around the end of the year
    It’s so interesting not knowing who the creator of the new poll is now… and it will be for some time. But I plan to reapply for the 13th Committee sometime later, though that won’t be super soon. I plan to post in the wiki/forum regret thread I created about mistakes I’ve made recently even though they’re not unamendable

    Please do not consistently try to throw a pity party about the fact that you didn't get on the committee this year. Even if you say that's not what you're doing, in practical terms and results, that is what you're doing.

    If you want to apply later, just apply later. Don't bring it up all the time in a "boy I sure am not on the poll committee anymore" way. That does you no favors.

    Reading chat on Discord about Oh, Brother makes me realize the perfect analogy as to why I very much dislike The Fenton Menace. It’s just the conflict in Oh, Brother except not funny or interesting
    Is this I sent to Polly as Manfred Von Karma still too spoilery

    Imma train you to uh… recite the entire two scenes where Friar Tuck blows up with expletives at the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood YTP Prince John’s Holiday with Satan!

    No spoilers so Friar Tuck’s attitude won’t be how people feel towards me
    Heh, right before I was about to play the Pursuit theme from DS Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Justice For All, it switched to the GBA version of that song on the order in iTunes
    Well, the MLP episode I have up next is Grannies Gone Wild. Love the Golden Girls reference even though I have no idea what that is 💀

    I like the reference despite having no idea what Golden Girls is just cuz another reviewer complimented the reference so I decided to just automatically concur before too knowing much of anything about the episode 💀💀💀
    Is there anyone left on the forum who’s read the Percy Jackson books, at least the first five/original series?

    Correct, have you read the series though, or did you just hear that as a spoiler? Even though it’s extremely likely it’s the first

    I’m happy the next book will be about Nico and Will Solace, I always felt like while I still don’t think Will is a bad character Riordan sometimes could have given him more development aside from being Nico’s boyfriend reading Trials of Apollo, but this book could be a good chance for that
    Well, FWD rejected my application, which wasn’t too shocking in retrospect. I was overconfident for even thinking it was 50/50 whether he would, considering there are two things during my recent Chairperson campaign I need to apologize for, one I’m positive is the major reason I was rejected, and the other being important too.
    First, my comment about “lumping a ton of people in the Poll Committee makes it a feel like a less important position” was foolish of me, and I owe everyone an apology for that. I got carried away with the feeling of importance I felt due to my role on the 12th Committee, and said something not just arrogant and pompous, but dead wrong. The Poll Committee is about having fun coming up with new-thought-provoking and providing them for everyone, not about being better-known or important, and I know now just how completely erroneous what I said was there.
    Secondly, I shouldn’t have instantly assumed that an IP adding Gabumon’s vote was not Gabumon, and called the IP a liar for adding the vote. I was both definitions of wrong, as well as immature and minimodding, and deeply apologize for that too.

    I have both been improving, and plan to keep improving, and making a better person, myself through my mistakes, and have learned so much through both my work on the 12th Committee and both of my Chairperson campaigns. I wish FWD and his current team, and anyone else who is accepted luck, as well as skill.
