Wow! A new episode! Incredible!
@Al-Asad GOSH DAR-FWAR GWA RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWR!My one chance at a first. Why do I care though?
And I just finished the update of Duties........which featured a hurricane.....Oh God.
"Other pegasi?" Possible Derpy revival?
I'm glad Fluttershy gets another episode, but I'm also not thrilled that Rainbow Dash may get the spotlight, too (since she has the most episodes of the season already). Maybe this will focus more on Fluttershy. I'm a little disappointed that Scootaloo is still without an episode of her own this season, though. Still has some episodes left. Will we get five episodes to look forward to in March? There are five Saturdays next month, so we'll see.
I've been looking forward to more Fluttershy. :)
Another episode starring our wonderful shy pegasus?THE FLUTTERSHY HAS BEEN DOUBLED!!!!
An EPIC STORM is a coming!
Same Fluttershy episode..........same Fluttershy channel! (sigh) always the same episode with her.
Yay this'll make me feel abit better! :D
Wow, awesome. I am SO glad they just put the FS episodes at the end of the season rather than leave her out altogether like they pretty much did with AJ in season one. Better late than never, more Fluttershy is always welcome. And further mixing my two main interests of meteorology and ponies is a sure-fire way to make me excited about this episode. ;D
Fluttershy doesn't seem self concious...
Unless Itunes decides that Fluttershy's meekness is a female stereotype.
is there a new episode comin on today? heard a few people say there wasnt but i didnt see it on here so idk for sure.also. awesome! more fluttershy!
Now we have two fluttershy episodes to look forward to. Excellent!
Moar Fluttershy is goodJust gimme Celestia episode and this season will redeem itself.
Saving the best pony for last. Woohoo!
How wonderful! ^~^
>Airs two days after my one year anniversary of my induction into the herd.>Airs one day before my birthday.>It's a Fluttershy episode.Yep, we're all good here. BRING. IT. ON.
inb4 every comment has a fluttershy cheer or squee - oh damn too late they already do xD
Calling it, this will be best episode.
@Huundee You'll have to wait next weekend for an episode. So, no, not this weekend.
Yay, Flutters! Too bad this sounds somewhat similar to "Putting Your Hoof Down" in that Fluttershy has to come over her shyness. I have high hopes for this, though! I know they won't disappoint. And it's Fluttershy, what's not to love? :)
All that is coming to mind at this moment is Fluttershy spinning around fast and wildly like Taz.
Oooohhhhh deeeear... this is NOT ending well. Take a picture of Ponyville, people, lol.
When the hurricane names roll around to F, I really hope we have some brony meteorologists.
YAY can't have enough fluttershy~
More Fluttershy? Yes please! Certainly developing Flutterhy with these episodes.
@One Radical Dude well that sucks. thanks though!
Well, since everyone else has already said it, YAY! Fluttershy's getting another episode. Time machine, where are you when I really needed you? But, I just gotta remember that patience is rewarded. And when the time comes, I'm sure I'll be rewarded with an awesome episode.
Good to see the Iron Will teaching's don't stick. Shy, self-conscious Fluttershy is best Fluttershy.
Fluttershy episodes are always fun!
This season has been done in pairs.We had2 Rainbows in a row2 AJ's in a rowAnd now 2 Fluttershy's in a row.
Wonder what this moral will be? Be confident?
A Dash and Fluttershy episode. Totally looking forward to that, hopefully we get a bit more backstory on these two, virtually nothing is known about them before they arrived in Ponyville.The Mysterious Lives of the Pegasi!
Can't get excited. I feel that I'm far less invested in this show now. I'd normally be excited about a Fluttershy episode but so much of the magic of this show was lost for me. I wanted to listen to Smile before going to bed... but I just couldn't enjoy it. Allot of the fun seems gone now. These episodes will be good regardless but fuck now I only see this as business. Granted that's the shows main purpose, being a big fan of animation I liked to believe this show was more of a love letter to its fans. I'm just really no longer emotionally invested in this show like I was. Fuck I need to go to bed. Maybe I'll care again tomorrow.
Well I'm sure one of my two OCs, Cloud Ace will be rather busy...(he's on night shift btw)
PLEASE NO KATRINA JOKES. PLEASE NO KATRINA GAS.
So I guess this means she learned nothing from Iron Will seeing as she's still self-conscious?
@CityFlyer502Pfft, building a time machine is easy. All you have to do is intend to build a time machine and your future self will do it!I could totally build one... if I felt like it.
Yay. It's great to see that Fluttershy gets another episode this season.
YAY or as Fluttershy would say "yey"my two fave fillies in one episode!!
I got a thing for Pegasi so this episode should be awesome. What am I saying, it WILL be awesome.
@Bolan Well, while there are seemingly similarities, that's not necessarily so. Being self-conscious and being unassertive are not necessarily connected...
@BolanWell. Let's face it, her working with Iron Will is what one calls the "conflict" of the episode the part where the lesson to be learned is played out and learned.If I had to guess the real conflict is, it's that she changes for the worst.
What worries me the most so far is that the Pegasi cast have the least depth to them in the whole series and they're forever trapped in status quo, with the sole exception of RD and her reading.This looks to be a repeat episode with probably some Derpy throw-in to make the majority yell 'OMG, BEST EPISODE EVER!'Any back-story is likely to get shafted to status quo post-episode.
Yay! More FluttershyAnd on that note though, still no Scootaloo episode? Sweetie Belle and Apple Bloom had theirs, at least give Scootaloo some of that air- time! There must be balance!
@Beta-Carotene Well, fine. But that doesn't make this episode come around any quicker!
@ Pawn HeartDear Princess Celestia,Today I learned that I should be more assertive against hurricanes.Your faithful student,Fluttershy
Assertiveness and self-consciousness are two different things. Hoof episode will probably deal with her overcoming issues of confidence in her opinions and differences with others. This sounds more personal than social (or maybe she has some physical attribute, like her face, with how she covered it with her hair as a filly, she becomes self-conscious of).Somepony's problems are not always worked through in a day ^^. I'm thinking Iron Will will kinda give her poor advice in that particular episode but she learns to speak her mind more, at least amongst her friends.
@GenericPonyName120Sweetie Belle and Applebloom didn't get their own chicken sandwich.
YAY! :3 sounds like a awesome episode.
Hurricane Fluttershy.... now that's something I'd evacuate *towards*.
They should have put the fluttershy episodes in the front of the season so we could get to the EPIC stuff later and get the same old same old out of the way!
Fluttershy is good, i'd like it to fly
I has a time machine!I found that, when I placed a mattress on top of a frame designed to keep it off of the floor, I can travel forward in time by lying on it and closing my eyes. I close my eyes because of the fact that when you do travel through time, there are some very trippy images, and full exposure to them can be mentally damaging. Some still seem to leak through, but my mind makes it so I forget most of them.I don't have it perfected yet; I can seem to only jump ahead in time around 6-9 hours. It does have a nice side effect of refreshing me though, leaving me fit to take on the new time period.
It's called...Hurricane...GODDAMN FLUTTERSHY!HAAAAAAAW-HAHAHA!!!They don't even have to AIR the episode, it's already the best thing possible!I'm afraid only the silver "best named weather phenomenon" medal will be going to Scramles the Death Dealer this year...
Best episode title ever!Somebody absolutely HAS to make a PMV with this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WXSB8lv9Zw
Oh great. Now people will whine and complain about 'THERE ARE TOO MANY FLUTTERSHY EPISODES'.I say it's about damn time, considering Fluttershy had way more influence on the show in the first season. Good thing that S2 was just flat out amazing so I don't mind at all though. I just hope people don't suddenly go on a hatefest about Shy or how she's OH MY GOD SO OUT OUT OF CHARACTER for whatever she does on the episodes.
She should probably check out some self-help books from Twilight's library...
Can't wait to watch this"M-must build a TIME MACHINE"I don't care if there are too many fluttershy episodes but they must make a Scootaloo episode in this season
Given that the plot is helping out the Pegasi weather patrol with rainy season, I think this episode might have more to do with Fluttershy's physical meekness as a week flyer than with her social meekness. That's how how I'm currently predicting this episode will be different from Putting Your Hoof Down.
if i've learned anything from this season it's that reading the synopsis gives you almost no kind of idea what's actually going to happen in the episode. I'll remain cautiously optimistic no matter what an extremely vague pseudo-spoiler says
If done properly and with song, it will be THE.BESt.POSSIBLE.THING
Makes me sad that there's no episode today...
ALL OF MY FUCKS YESES
So...We have a Fluttershy episode...Then a Twilight episode...Then a Spike episode...And then another Fluttershy episode...What happened to perfectly pairing character episodes? WHY U BREAK PATTERN, HASBRO?But yeah, I'm looking forward to this.
@Laurence BrownMine must be broken then. I only went forward three hours. Now I'm stuck making this delicious elixir that I hope can help me speed through the day.
Is there gonna be an episode on the 25th feb?or are we waiting until the 10th march?Either way two good looking episodes coming up - physco twi and fluttershy.
Yay, even more fluttershy! Wait... Hurricane, they don't even live near an ocean, or do they?
prepare yourself! a shit storm is up brewing !
@ShardwolfNope, there will not be a new episode today. However, there will be a new episode next week on Saturday.
@pg13fresnois there a pattern at all?
@ 62835etc...Took the thoughts right out of my head. This does sound like Fluttershy having to overcome her insecurities regarding her "poor" flying skills. Somewhat different than learning to be more verbally assertive. We've seen she's a more than adequate flier when she's with her friends or animals, ie. when she feels comfortable with her surroundings. Doing so in public, among strangers, is an entirely different thing. I mean if her scenes in "The Cuite Mark Chronicles" is anything to go by, she's probably terrified of being laughed at.Hopefully this episode will expand on Fluttershy and Dash's friendship. Besides "May The Best Pet Win" and "Sonic Rainboom" we've seen very little interaction between just the 2 Pegasi, and considering they've probably been friends the longest of the Mane 6...In conclusion: more Fluttershy episodes, buck yes!
This will be a cool episode, I think!
"Hopefully this episode will expand on Fluttershy and Dash's friendship"I don't think that's really necessary or absolutely needed. Not right away anyway. We already saw the reason why Fluttershy clings to RD in the first season. I just want to see more Flutteryshy centric stuff. Not how cool RD is.
Hmm, lets see. Rain = storm clouds. Storm clouds = lightning. Lightning = Derpy.... OMG MOAR DERPY!!
why *squee* i *squee* stop *squee* do *squee* this *squee* YAY
More Fluttershy, now THAT is what I'm talking about! They saved her for later in season 2 because she's the best. Yes!
She's probably gonna kill someone.
Without reading the synopsis, I'm going to assume it's sometrhing like that pisode of The Simpsons where Ned snaps and cews out everyone in Springfield.Now I'mma read the synopsis....and there goes my hopes. Still, Fluttershy!
Iron Will is worst life coach.
@Eeveexpert You got into the herd a day after me. Also, more Fluttershy is always awesome. But what does "self-conciousness" mean, and how does it affect her ability to help with the rainy season?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-consciousnessHere. It means that Flattershy is very shy pony. What a surprise :) But maybe she's got paranoia. It will be epic.
I really don't care about Fluttershy, but it's only fair she gets just as many episodes as the others. I would very much like a Scootaloo episode, though.
There. TWO Fluttershy episodes. Now can people shut the fuck up about "omg qq no fluttershy episode!11!" ?
*HUGE GASP* yay! can't wait.... until...... march 4? wtf? Oh! they already said that on eqd didn't they? damn...
@Nostalgia SchmaltzSuddenly, an image of massive complaining about "RD ruined Fluttershy's episode, that jerk already had a lot of them" came to my mind.Luckily, Dash will have a role in this episode equivalent to Shy's in "May The Best Pet Win".
new fluttershy episode? awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! and its my brithday. fluttershy for my birthday? damn Studio B even knows what i wanted for my birthday and i didnt even have to tell them. Thanks for the awesome present!
@RafasdeToo late, people are already whining about that. And now they've switched to "QQ no scootaloo episode".Is this fandom ever satisfied?
This is gonna be sweet, Fluttershy AND a side role for Rainbow Dash. Looking forward to it.
@Joeits fandom, every fandom always dissatisfied with something
@JoeHeh, I guess not.I'll admit, though... I would love to have a Scootaloo episode in S2. And about the whining... I became seriously scared of it since the "Derpy change" Seth posted some hours ago.I'm hoping we will learn something from that and start appreciating more our current ponies.
@OctaviaThat sounds like win to me.
yay, a fluttershy episode
Just realized the one of the mane 6 I like most (hint: Dragonshy is still best episode) and the one that annoys me the most are going to be sharing a ep to some degree. XDI'll even forgive the creators if they make it good. (yes I'm joking, chill -___________- )
Yeees more Fluttershy!! Thank you creators! <3
It's about time we got a Fluttershy episode. She hasn't been a focal point all season long. Every time we saw her she was taking a back seat to the other Mane Six. Thank goodness someone spotted this.
Sweet! The more Fluttershy the better! Plus we haven't seen much from pegesi and Cloudsdale lately, so it'll be cool to have a focus on them.
So this is the episode that shall premiere on my birthday, eh? Neat. A Fluttershy episode is a nice present.Too bad I'm still horribly angry over the whole Derpy change.
*Happy dance*!!! |-D
You think FS will kill a bear again in this episode? XD
More Fluttershy, this can only be a good thing ^^
4 more episodes to go... still no sign of any griffons making a return :P
Fluttershy <3 Yay
I think the difference between this episode and "Putting Your Hoof Down" will be that this episode won't be about her shyness; it will be more about her not wanting to do things she might consider harmful. That being said, the title makes me think she will once again find her inner-Sadist and go a little too far.
Wow more Fluttershy!
Finally Fluttershy gets an episode!
@Kyroneaholy crap!you too?all of it, the birthday, the anger.everything
@e0d4389c-5f92-11e1-a5f9-000bcdca4d7aI usually find myself getting more negative about my future investment in the show when I'm tired, so yeah, thinking about it when you wake up again is probably the best way to go about it.
More best pony, woohoo!
@El_Darax I feel the exact same way, only the other way around :p.(yes I'm joking, chill -___________- ) <- This still applies.
I can almost smell the flutterdash fics that will come with this episode once it's aired...
Looking for possible Flutterdash fodder
Wow, Fluttershy is going to get a lot of character development in the next few weeks, isn't she.Four more episodes unnanounced. Two are the season finale. YOU'RE RUNNING OUT OF CHANCES, SCOOTALOO! HURRY UP!
How long till the episode starts?
Hooray! The Fluttershy has been doubled!
It's about time we got some more Fluttershy!
Another Fluttershy episode? Yeeeees!
Why no Trixie Hasbro? WHY
I'm so excited, I could just scream! *fairly large inhale* "ahh..."Can't wait!
FINALLY! A freakin Fluttershy episode at last
AWESOME!! Both of these Fluttershy episodes that're coming up sound like they're gonna be great!
Assertive Fluttershy?Heck yeah!
*Pulls out Mr. Bison's PDA*YES! YES!
I'm looking quite forward to this episode. And like everyone else I hope to see Derpy in it to,who knows she and Fluttershy could possibly be partners.
Yay! Storms and adorableness!
Cobalt the alicorn (Referring to myself in the third person like the G and PT makes me sound 20% cooler) hopes venti (roman storm spirits) are involved
I know the never will but don't you think a episode starring fluttershy and rarity where fluttershy has problems talking to other ponies especially stallions and rarity helps her get better so she talks to whom ever she has a crush on.
Fluttershy on weather duty?wooo hooo :-)
WEATHER EPISODE WEATHER EPISODE PEGASI BEING BADASS INCOMING!
I would just like to point out one thing: FlutterDash.
okay than...go Fluttershy!!!
And for those of you hating on FlutterDash I would just like to remind you of one thing: it's bucking adorable.
Yay, another Fluttershy episode! And a very...interesting title for it as well! lol
I so happy my favorite pony have a other episode. YAY!!!
@e0d4389c-5f92-11e1-a5f9-000bcdca4d7aIt's ok, you can be interested in other things besides ponies. It doesn't have to be that important to you but just watch it if you want to.If you find you have a general lack of interest in things that used to interest you, it might just be that you need to move on to other hobbies.If actually feel like you might be depressed then do what you can do to treat the depression.
@BolanStatus Quo my friend
It's always good to see the best pony get an episode. It'll be fun to see how the show treats Fluttershy's self-consciousness.
Well it's about time! XD
@GryffinzI agree first they had a musical duet and then there was the beginning scene to Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000
I knew hasbro wouldn't let us down. So that's 2 Fluttershy episodes, one more would balance it out along with 1 more Pinkie Pie Episode and then the 2 part season finale.^_^
I'm pretty sure trees and hurricanes don't mix.
Two Fluttershy episodes! Two! In the next few weeks! I mean- yeah, I might check it out. If there's not anything better on. Which there probably will be. I really have very little interest in favourite pony and her adventures. Um.
A pegasi episode... I wonder if Derpy's gonna be there...
Two episodes of Fluttershy! Can she handle all that attention?!
When is a fluttershy episode gonna be different? I really try not to hate her but its hard with crap like her 2 new episodes. "I'm shy and weak, now I'm not! Wait, thats not working out for me, I'll change back!" The end! I just wish every Fluttershy episode wasn't the same old boring Fluttersy episode. They are all practically the same episode....... I dont know, maybe Rainbow Dash will at least make the episode fun or different. (Sigh)
Should be a fine episode. I just hope Rainbow Dash doesn't become Fluttershy's constant antagonist throughout. I prefer seeing their relationship one where RD is merely impatient, but still obviously wants to help her oldest friend (a la Sonic Rainboom). As opposed to the "Let's ditch Fluttershy" mentality from most of the Dragonshy episode.That said, she's a good source of conflict for the yellow pegasus.
Wait a minute. The next episode is all about her trying to gain confidence (from a guy named "Iron Will" no less)...hello, character development?
@Beta-CaroteneNO... a real life "hurricane Fluttershy" could only back fire horribly on us. To wit: "This weekend, costal Florida was decimated by Hurricane Fluttershy, at the cost of hundreds of lives..."
Finally, a little Fluttershy onslaught of episodes! Fluttershy was being overlooked all season! I was getting disappoint. lol
This looks like it could be real good. Also, I've heard people say that pegasi had little screen time in the fanworks or the show - this should please a lot of people.
yay! a Fluttershy episode. :D
I take it that the Training she gets from Iron Will doesn't pay off?
@IroncladAt least wait until the episodes come out before declaring they're practically the same.
You know, this could be a more sociological thing. Maybe other Pegasi misunderstand and look down their nose at Fluttershy? There's definitely an undercurrent in the Sonic Rainboom and chronicles episode that Pegasi do aggressively judge each other's merits based on how well they fly. Add to that the Pegasi are the traditional wardens of the weather, and not only does Fluttershy not do that, she doesn't even help out on the weather team during Winter Wrap Up! She goes to the Animal team. So I assume there's some kind of major weather event, and every Pegasi wing is drafted, but the other Pegasi may not consider Fluttershy a "real" pegasus, and that's what it's about. Maybe Rainbow Dash will once again have to defend her honor?
@Scott_LochmoellerI could be off base, but this premise does sort of tie into a theory I've had about Dash and Fluttershy for a while. Af fillies, I think Dash saw weak flyer Fluttershy as a kindred spirit. Sure Dash was better at flying, but it still wasn't very controlled, as per her "rainbow crash" nickname. And yes, I do subscribe to the shipping theory that the young Dash may have had a crush on Fluttershy. That's why Dash rushed to defend her honor. But then, what happens after the race is over? What's that? Fluttershy is on the GROUND? why? what, she intends to LIVE DOWN THERE? And take care of ANIMALS? Like some kind of earth pony? To me, Rainbow Dash may have seen this as Fluttershy giving up on flying, and in essence giving up on even being a pegasus. And if that's how Dash took it, then Dash may even have taken this as a personal betrayal by Fluttershy, given Dash staged the race to defend Fluttershy in the first place. So Dash lost respect for her, and fell in with the likes of Gilda, and picked up pranking. Then Dash left Flight Camp. Whether she quit or was drummed out is still unclear, and it was a minor scandal in her social group. I get the sense that she may have drifted for a while, before finally ending up in weather management for Ponyville and the surrounding area. Dash still lived in the clouds, but not in Cloudsdale, just in her own house over Ponyville. And being that Ponyville is a traditional Earth Pony community, (though it's more integrated now,) Dash may have found it bitterly ironic that in the end her fate may have been more like Fluttershy's than she ever thought it would be. And this softened her resentment to Fluttershy, somewhat.Still, Dash is a Pegasus, and still flies, lives in the sky, and handles the weather. In early season 1 some of that old resentment of "pegasus quitter" Fluttershy does show through, particularly in Dragonshy when Dash treats Fluttershy as "The Load." But that same episode was a turning point for the pair, as Fluttershy bested the Dragon when Rainbow Dash couldn't. This didn't go unnoticed by Rainbow Dash, and Dash did now try to patch things up with Fluttershy for real. It was a rocky path, (Sonic Rainboom shows that at that point Fluttershy is not the friend Dash would have chosen to join her, if she thought she had a choice.) But Fluttershy stood up for Dash, finally returning the favor. And Fluttershy did cheer the hardest and loudest during the second Sonic Rainboom, a fact I hope Dash was made aware of later. Finally, in "Return of Harmony 2" Fluttershy caught Dash, essentially allowing her to be saved.And it's been interesting, because the pair, Fluttershy and Dash, seem much closer in Season 2. They work together as a team when needed, such as "Secret of My Excess" and "Last Round up." And keep in mind it was Dash who formed that team. But what really impressed me was Cider Squeezy, where Dash made a point of Grabbing Fluttershy for the line. To me, their relationship grown and shown a real arc over the series, to the point that you could make a solid case for Dash considering Fluttershy her best friend. And that was NOT the case in the first half of season 1.
@Scott_LochmoellerSo actually, an episode spot lighting Fluttershy AND Rainbow Dash as friends in a Pegasus specific situation has me rather excited! And while I could be wrong, if the episode deals with what I think (and hope) it deals with, this could be much less redundant than people are fearing. And sorry for the triple post, it was all going to be one, but blogger made me break it up.
So the first Fluttershy episode was about assertiveness. This one is about self-confidence. That's cool. MOAR FLUTTERSHY!!!
Another one with Fluttershy not actually being shy anymore? Eh.
Hasbro will censor it because mentioning "hurricanes" is offensive to people who went through Katrina.Yeah, I'm still upset =(.
This one doesn't seem like it's about Fluttershy being shy as much as it's about her not liking/doing things pegasi are "supposed" to do. So it's possible that Fluttershy might not be the one who's actually learning something, but a one sentence plot description isn't really much to go on - the one about last week's episode made it seem like Pinkie was going to have to accept that Cranky wasn't going to be her friend.But at any rate, it's good to see some focus on the pegasi. Of the mane 6 and the CMC, the pegasi are the only ones whose families have never been mentioned, and seem to have the least amount of backstory.
Nice... By the way could anyone tell me when's episode 19 gonna air, it's already Saturday,
@Aviocity They don't have a new episdoe today man :(
I'm so excited I could scream ! :3
Awww yeah, more Fluttershy!
@Scott_LochmoellerYou know, that's a lot for food for thought. The interactions between Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy have been very interesting. I can't say much to the matter, but I have to give credit for your thoughts and interpretations.Whether or not you'll respond to me about this, I just wanted to tell you thanks. I'm definitely going to save these posts into a text file. :)
not sure if yay.This episode will be at least centered on two ponies rather than just one, which is the curse of season 2.recently the screen time analysis for season one was brought up and you can see that even in character-centered episodes you could still see a good amount of mane 6.Now we are served with episodes like the Pinkie ones, where 95% of screen time is just one pony. The upcoming FS episode will likely follow that fashion, with "Iron will" as the supporting character.I still have high hopes though.
Finally Fluttershy gets some much needed recognition
