You know, it’s moments like this that I really find myself hoping they do two breaks this season. I know they already have one coming June 22 for the summer, as usual, but I think it would be pretty great if they did another one immediately after whatever the last episode before the finale was, and used that break to keep the last few episodes from airing early and spoiling anything.

As in, it won’t have any negative people whining and bitching about the season not living up to their expectations, insulting and giving the writers flak for not giving them what they want and being entitled and demanding that it gives the series "closure". I don’t care if you have expectations like that, but whining and crying about it every time a new episode airs that they don’t like is just stupid and tiresome to hear. I came to this thread to get away from all that and talk to those who doesn’t care about any of that and watch the episodes for what they are. I’m just hoping that this thread doesn’t turn out to be like that one.

There’s a reason why some people can’t make friends and probably never will during their whole lives.

I mean that literally won’t stop other countries from doing whatever they want.
I think the implication there is, much as the summer break is used by the animators to finish off the second half of the season (I believe), if they were still working on the ending and took a break to finish, then the countries likely to air it early wouldn’t get it any sooner than DF would.

Maybe. Assuming it actually works that way. I certainly don’t know.

I’m all for appreciating the episodes for what they are. I look forward to discussing them with you.

Now watch them air the entire 2nd act of S9 during the hiatus in some random European country.
Are they even done working on the second half yet? I swear last season they were still working on the second half when the summer hiatus began.

I don’t have the whole season filtered, just the first half. If this goes as usual, when the show resumes from the mid-season hiatus, there will be a good 2-3 episodes before the early airings start again. Only they won’t be coming from Italy this time, but most likely another completely random country. That’s how utterly ludicrous this whole thing is. The early airings usually come from multiple different nations, and it’s rarely ever the same ones every time, with the exception of Canada’s Treehouse TV.

This is the issue with syndicated shows: once a network buys airing rights, they can do whatever they want with them. Hell, once the midseason hiatus is over, there is (hypothetically) nothing stopping a network from airing all the episodes back to back in the space of a few hours.

Considering Fluttershy and Ember are in my watched tags, I’m gonna guess my watched list is gonna be useless for the day.
