Okay, okay, I know exactly what you bronies are thinking now that I saw this episode. "Please tell us you hate Pinkie Pie! PLEASE, tell us you hate Pinkie Pie! We're begging you to hate Pinkie Pie! We're gonna rape the fuck out of you if you don't hate Pinkie Pie!" Well, guess what? I'm only gonna say this once. I DON'T hate Pinkie Pie. I still love Pinkie Pie. She's still one of my favorite characters in the series!
...SHUT THE FUCK UP AND GET A LIFE, YOU FAGS!!!!
Now that that's off my chest, let's dive into the episode that was named for that controversial band who faked their way to the top. This is "Filli Vanilli".
...that before. And quite frankly, neither did I. Props, Andrea Libman, for not making me have to go fetch and trim clips from previous episodes that show Fluttershy singing.
You know, this actually explains a lot. Once I saw this episode for the first time and heard Pinkie say this, I started to understand what a lot of these bronies and evil Fluttershy fanbots have problems with. They're just not seeing the bigger picture.
Okay, it's official. Spike's crush on Rarity is a fetish.
Pinkie Pie: Lost his voice and the title! [gobbles]
Okay, so the Pony Tones may not technically be this big band or anything spectacular like Crush 40 or Julien-K, but really, Daniel Ingram? Couldn't you have written more songs for these guys? It would sort of make them a little better because I don't know what we're supposed to gain from listening to the same song over and over and over again. No, really, I don't.
Really, Fluttershy? Really?! Are you deaf?! Those ponies were cheering for you! They were fucking cheering!! What part of that did you not hear?! There is no way in hell I am about to believe that you could have possibly imagined otherwise! I swear, she handled being a fashionista better than this! Why couldn't Fluttershy have reacted like this?
But no, because she has delusions of inferiority, she takes off and uses an obvious recycled audio clip way back from the episode "Dragonshy".
And now this.
You really can't deny that Fluttershy is just getting worse as the series goes on. And if this is what she sees when it looks like she should have been given the impression that things weren't so bad... then...
Okay, what was the point of that? Applejack pretty much answered all her own questions.
So that was "Filli Vanilli" and now I look back at it, let me tell you. It sucks! And no, it's not because of Pinkie Pie, so shut the fuck up! Remember when I said that I would prove to you that Fluttershy got worse as time went on? Here's a compilation of every single clip of Fluttershy doing great things to show that she shouldn't have to be the character she is today.
