Curse you, GAK! by Mental-Mischief Curse you, GAK! by Mental-Mischief
See that bandwagon over there? ... Yeah... I jumped on it.

I really wish that they had done more with Sombra in the premiere... or at least given him a single moment of total, evil "badass-ery"... but no... he didn't get one... he barely did anything... which makes me sad. He had so much potential and so little screen time.

As far as GAK goes... I got really annoyed by those commercials, frankly... There was at least one during each commercial break... two on some... I'm not surprised that Bronies turned it into a meme... but I never expected the extent of which it would go... Yeesh... and now I suppose MLB is gonna be flooding with it for at least the next week...

I have no idea why I gave him a monocle... just felt like he needed one. Monocles are cool. :meow:

The painting is a screenshot of Sombra in his castle from the episode.

It wasn't the Crystal Heart that defeated Sombra. It was Gak. I'm so glad it hasn't infected other episodes since

Normally I don't sympathise with villains, but Sombra's confusion is understood. Though we haven't seen as many Gak commercials in recent weeks, I cannot get that annoying announcer or Gak's accessories out of my head!:frustrated:

gak.

once you go gak,

you'll never go back.

Also, a tsunami of Gak? You could've replaced Sombra with one and it would've made zero difference for the plot.

I know it is a joke, but I really can't hold myself back here. Sorry.

It would not have made any sense, or really, less sense then having King Sombra.

I really hope he maybe can return. The lack of dialogue from him is annoying.

We at least don't get flooded by Gak anymore.

OK so what you need to know is that Sauron barely spoke a word in all of the movies. which is why Sombra did not talk either.

Oooooh, look how articulate Sombra has become. And in the opener he was all "Slaaaaaaveeeessss... Gahahahaha! Crrryyystalll... Bwahahaha!" :D
Kidding, but I, too, regret the wasted potential of introducing him. Ah, well, I guess that leaves much room for fanfic writers. ;) They are sure to cover him up (in GAK :D ) soon.

Personally, I liked how little was done with Sombra; nothing is scarier then something you don't know about.

GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAK.

You bring up a valid point. :nod:

The only problem is that the way they set it up, they knew who Sombra was, they knew what he wanted, they knew what would happen if he got control of the Crystal Empire again, and they quickly found out how to stop him. They set it up so that we knew everything about him, but didn't give him nearly enough screen time to actually flesh him out as a character to meet the high standards that were set for him. As a result, he was a bit underwhelming as a villain.

However, if they had made it so that Sombra had been more of a mystery, then the fact that he had so little screen time wouldn't have been a problem.

My love of this villain may have something to do with the backstory; there was such a sense of fear and oppression set up there that I felt that what little they did with him in the present was enough.

He forced an entire race to work as his slaves,working in chains, and was so powerful that the alicorn sisters themselves had to bring him down, and he then left the entire population of the country brainwashed and frighted of him. Whatever he did to those ponies, it's left them scarred for life.

Basically, that little concept right there was enough to scare me badly enough of him; unlike Discord, he didn't need to be developed. He was frightening enough at the beginning.

To top that of, Sombra was turn into shadow and locked into ice for a thousand years; how much of his sanity is left?

You know the season 3 premire was dissapointing when everypony is talking about that GAK commercial more than the premire itself. I actually liked the Littlest Pet shop more than the premire.

I didn't get to see the Littlest Pet Shop thing... but I didn't find the season 3 premiere as a whole disappointing... just the lack of villain.

Aside from that, I loved the songs, I'm glad they gave Spike some time in the spotlight, Pinkie Pe was hilarious as usual, Twilight learned a valuable lesson and I'm excited to see where the next level of her studies will take her, even though I have a pretty good idea.

I choose not to dwell on small things so I can enjoy the bigger picture.

Well, I agree with you, but I was pretty hyped about the villain, especially I saw throughout the concept art from the show and all. So I was expecting something just as epic as the canterlot wedding, but maybe it's my fault for expecting way too much I guess.
