/MLPOL/ Movie Night
We like movie nights on Fridays. These movie nights are usually prefaced with a Pre-Stream event before we watch a movie or two, which is then normally followed by several episodes of Ponies.
Registering an account on the streaming sites we go to is not required.
The Pre-Stream for the Movie Night usually starts at 7:00pm EST.https://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactyl
is the normal room for the Pre-Stream.
The Movie Night proper usually starts at around 8:00pm or 8:30pm EST.
Location varies depending on various factors.

I second American Psycho
The Pre-Stream Playlist today came out to two hours, including the two episodes of The Tick I dropped in at the end. Just letting Elway know in case it affects how he wants to build his playlist.
Pony Theme Of The Week is Celestia with Cake, as I just celebrated my birthday the other day.
Happy Birthday Flappy!!!
Alright, so that's two votes for American Psycho I think, plus I'm in a mood to watch it, so that will be the movie tonight. Since Flappy has a slightly longer playlist, I've decided to drop Our Gang this week. We will resume it next week. So without further ado, here is tonight's movie schedule:Merrie Melodies: Alpine Antics
American Psycho (2000)
The long-awaited prequel to Canadian Psycho.Hoeres:
S6 eps 14 and 15Smamaurai:
Eps 43 and 44
Program will commence as usual following Flappy's stream, same bat time, same bat channel. Hope to see you all there. Also, Happy Birthday Flappy
I'm back here with two important news items!
First is that the streaming room is open for this week.
Second is that the Pony Theme of the Week is Guardsmares.
See you soon!https://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactyl

My numbering was off in the post from last week, but these are the current episodes for both shows. Anyway, show will commence at the usual time following Flappy's stream.
The Pre-Stream tonight will consist of the same pattern of MLP Fan Music, some videos, some PMVs, and then the next episode of The Tick.
Season 1 Episode 6 - The Big Leagues - The Tick and Arthur are invited to join the League of Superheroes. Captain Liberty, jealous that she wasn't chosen, hires a top notch lawyer with the help of Batmanuel to sue The League. Unknown to either The Tick, Arthur, Batmanuel, or Captain Liberty, her lawyer is actually the Champion, the racist and misogynistic leader of The League of Superheroes. The Tick and Arthur soon figure out that The League is more of club when they won't spring into action against minor crimes, so they renounce their memberships and leave. The pair then help Captain Liberty by exposing the Champion's true identity in front of the entire law firm which results in the League opening a new group without the Champion.

Pony theme of the week is "injury", as I had a little emergency room adventure last week due to work. I'll be back on Monday, but it still feels like a major life event just happened.
I can hang out in the room early, but I should wait until the normal time 7pm Eastern
before starting the playlist. That means that I'll have an open playlist until then for watching whatever until the Pre-Stream starts. If you want to mention this stream in some of your other Pony chatrooms to get a bit more movement in the chat, feel free to do so.
I've also got a different video I'd like to experiment with after the movie and Smarmara are done, if anyone's still interested in being up after that.https://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactyl
The room's open with an Open Playlist until the normal Pre-Stream starting time.
B-but what happened to those mares?
I'd say it was the dragon episode where they had to work a little harder to win the day.
Also, the Pony Theme for this week will be Safety Squad.
Ouch. Here is the pony.
Hi guys, quick update: Due to an unexpected after work get-together, I might be a bit late assembling the playlist and getting things sorted. Today's been a bit of an adventure.
As a result, tonight's theme will instead be St Patrick's Day. The Safety Squad will be nearby, and will have the spotlight next week instead.
Quickly heading out to buy some Whisky and Rum. BRB.
Alright, the room's ready, the booze is flowing, and it's St Patrick's Day.
Season 1 Episode 7 - The Tick vs. Justice - The Tick, Arthur, and Batmanuel must attend court after a battle with the villain Destroyo, who is arrested after nuclear weapons are found in his car. [Further episode description clipped because I want a description, not a summary]

Hey all, I'm running a bit late too. Movie schedule will be up momentarily.
Alright lads, here are tonight's movies.
Merrie Melodies: Porky's Poultry Plant
Our Gang: Pooch
The Secret of Roan Inish (1994)[/b]
I was going to show Natural Born Killers, then I remembered it's St. Patrick's Day, so we've got something Irish this week. I haven't seen this movie since I was 11, but I remember it being good.
S6 eps 20 and 21
Eps 49 and 50
what time did the movie start?
Also, new here, how do you post comments, do you need an account? And if so, how do?
nvm. figured it out
After some newer names have been showing up in the chatroom over the last couple of weeks, the idea of working on the emotes list for the newfriends came up.
I've only done a very quick skim of the emotes list and pruned a small handful of the less relevant images. What sorts of pruning do people think needs to be done to the emotes list, if any?
I started with Occult's list and have just been making small additions here and there, pruning broken links, and renaming some emotes to group them properly in the list. As far as grouping and organization of the emotes list goes, there's a bunch of work left to do on that front, but how heavy/light I should go on "sanitizing" the emote list for newer people is something I'm not sure about.
The goal here is to maintain the /MLPOL/ culture and the room's generally censorship free state while still growing the Watch Party / Movie Night population.
sipping a beverage
shut your trap
I was asking more along the lines of how the Movie Night regulars wanted the character of the Emotes in. The room is called /MLPOL/ WATCH PARTY, or something to that effect, so friendship windmill silliness is implied. I was wondering if the fact that it's on the front page of the emote responses would scare too many internet wanderers out of the room, whether that would attract censorious or otherwise nefarious attention to the room, and whether anyone in the room gave a fuck about it.
Also, there are some outright pornographic images in the emote list with little relevance for group conversation, and I don't know if I need to care whether the cytube owner gives a fuck.
Are those emote tags from other chatrooms that you're requesting I add to the current emote list? I just checked, and at the very least, "qt" and "bitch" do not have entries in the list, and did not have entries at the time of your posting.
Regardless, I did give the emote list a quick once-over to check for things like dead links, images that are practically never used, and images that might be better renamed so as to sort them out in the list better. There are a ton of different kinds of changes I could make, so I'm trying to really limit the scope of what I try to do when I'm opening the hood there.
>>360447>whether anyone in the room gave a fuck about it
This pretty much.
Visitors should conform to /mlpol/'s etiquette.
A suggestion: Sex Drive (2008). Great movie, some PUA type themes but a wholesome message about settling down and having meaningful sex in the end.
>>360447>outright pornographic images>little relevance for group conversation
Other than "Natural Born Killers" that you said you wanted to watch and "Sex Drive" that the other anon wanted to watch, I'd also be interested to see "Prisoners" (2013) which is like a murder mystery/detective/etc movie. I haven't seen it but I'd like to, it seemed good.
Obligatory pone to sweeten the deal.

The room is open!
As promised, the Pony Theme of the week this week is Safety Squad!
Let's all have a safe stream tonight, and make sure you have plenty of liquid near you to stay hydrated.https://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactyl
The premise of this week's The Tick episode is as follows:Season 1 Episode 8 - Arthur, Interrupted
- At the urging of his friends, Arthur finally "comes out" as a superhero to his family, revealing his life choice to them. They see him as crazy and immediately attempt an intervention. When he tries to leave, Arthur is forcibly taken to a psychiatric hospital. Meanwhile, the Tick grows concerned over Arthur's disappearance and begins to fear the worst.

Tonight we finish up the last two episodes of the original series. Apparently Adult Swim produced a final season that continued the story, if I can find it by next week we'll continue with that, otherwise new week will start a new cartoon, probably Ghost Hunters.
I'll be a few more minutes putting together the post for the pre-stream. This will be our finale of The Tick this week, so I want to put that in the images. The playlist is ready to go.
Alright, Lads and Germs!
Tonight is special. We have the season finale of The Tick tonight. I also found a new pony music artist with four songs out so far, which are in the playlist, and I've also put in more non-pony content this week than I expected. I'll weigh the pony content more heavily in future streams.
Without further ado, let's get the night started.

WOW! Damn! I never thought that could be possible.
I will not be joining this Friday, but if y'all still convene, you should watch Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ.
That's a painfully long hardcore movie anon. And not quite app for comfy Movie Night.
There was another Mel Gibson movie that's relatively recent. We could watch that at some point.
I've decided that the show we'll watch in the Pre-Stream will be ReBoot, and that we'll give the animated version of The Tick a rest for now, as we just finished a Tick series.
Also, I just found out that we just passed the one year anniversary of these pre-streams a week or two ago, so I'm making that the theme this week.
We watched the first two episodes of the animated version of The Tick and the first two episodes of ReBoot last week, but I'll give ReBoot it's "official" introduction in this post.
This is the description from the playlist:
- - - - -
ReBoot is a Canadian computer-animated TV series that originally aired on YTV from 1994 to 2001. It was produced by Vancouver-based Mainframe Entertainment, Alliance Communications and BLT Productions. The animated series was created by Gavin Blair, Ian Pearson, Phil Mitchell, and John Grace, with the visuals designed by Brendan McCarthy after an initial attempt by Ian Gibson. It was one of the world's first CGI television series.
The series follows the adventures of a Guardian named Bob and his companions Enzo and Dot Matrix as they work to keep the computer system of Mainframe safe from the viruses and other threats.
A reimagined, live-action/CGI-animated series, ReBoot: The Guardian Code, was announced in 2015, and the first ten episodes debuted on Netflix worldwide (excluding Canada) on March 30, 2018. YTV aired all twenty episodes from June 4 to July 5, 2018.
The series follows the adventures of a Guardian named Bob and his companions Enzo and Dot Matrix as they work to keep the computer system of Mainframe safe from the viruses known as Megabyte and Hexadecimal. The setting is in the inner world of a computer system known by its inhabitants as Mainframe. It was deliberately chosen due to technological constraints at the time, as the fictional computer world allowed for blocky looking models and mechanical animation.
A recurring plot thread is when the User loads a game, an electrical violet cube lowers onto part of the city. Anyone trapped inside becomes NPCs and have the chance to stop the User. If the User wins, the area is destroyed and the residents reduced to leech like creatures called Nulls.
- - - - -
Reboot |S1.E3| Quick & The Fed
- A magnet threatens to erase Dot.
Reboot |S1.E4| Medusa Bug
- Hexadecimal tricks Megabyte into releasing a bug that threatens to turn all of Mainframe into stone.
Most of the Pre-Stream content is music this week, then we have the two episodes of ReBoot.
The room is open, and the music will start shortly.https://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactyl
We're off to the races now!
Getting the movie schedule prepared, should be up momentarily.
Here is tonight's program:
Merrie Melodies: Beau Porky
Our Gang: Free Wheeling
Wayne's World (1992)
An old SNL movie from back in the days when SNL was actually funny. Featuring the comic stylings of Dana Carvey, who would later go on to accuse Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.
My Lovely Horse
S6 eps 24 and 25
Samurai Jack: The Second Coming
Eps 1 and 2
Also, to the anon that requested Pokemon: The Guardians of Altomare, are you sure that's the correct title? I looked for it but couldn't find any information.
An alternative title is Pokémon Heroes: Latios and Latias, but if nothing springs up that's just life.
In light of recent MILF posting i find it adequate to bump this post
Playlist is made, putting post together now.
Hello, everyone! After another week, we have another movie night.
We'll be watching our usual mix of MLP music, animations, and a few other odds and ends in the pre-stream as well as episodes five and six of season one of ReBoot. I've done something unusual and put an entire album from a single artist in the rotation for the night to try that out. We'll see how same-y it is, and how much we want to balance that out with variety.
Image themes of the week are prison, dog, and sick, based on the episode summaries. I remember the prison episode being from the perspective of the guard, while the user is one of the prisoners, and it'll be more sci-fi than the prison images I was able to grab, but they'll do.
See you soon!
Reboot |S1.E5| In the belly of the beast
Frisket gets sick when he swallows an unformat command, which Megabyte wants for himself.
Reboot |S1.E6| The Tiff

Program will commence following Flappy's stream, link will likely be up shortly.
Whoops, spoke too soon. There's the link.
Was a fun stream
How did people find the format for the stream last night?
Specifically, putting an entire small album from one artist in the playlist. I'm thinking that I ideally want to avoid having too long a stretch of the same style of music. Albums can be great at taking the listener through a nuanced and enriching conceptual journey and all that stuff, but I'm aiming for a more casual kind of experience that doesn't require paying that close attention in order to get the most out of it.
Adding a bunch of songs just from one artist's page would be convenient, but I have a vague sense that it would limit things or change the character of the playlists too much.
>>361642>How did people find the format for the stream last night?
I liked it. although i missed half of it.>Specifically, putting an entire small album from one artist in the playlist.

I missed the album, i think that it could be a good idea though, im not opposed to it.
The pre-stream will start probably fifteen to thirty minutes later than usual tonight. Work went late this week.
Lads and Gents, we present to you a somewhat late
stream night once again! We've still got a variety of songs and animations for you all. I found an animation channel that does cutesy stuff, and there was a 4 part series of "Ask Frigid Drift" videos, so I thought I'd toss those in.
After the MLP stuff, we have our ReBoot episodes, followed by Elway's movie selection.
The total playlist length did come to 1hr 50m when I put it together. Due to time constraints tonight, I thought it best to just go with the first "complete" feeling playlist I could come up with and not edit for time. I do try to put some structure into these playlists.
I spent all week doing flood relief work, making tons of sandbags, moving them, and building the walls. I'd prefer to use that as the theme of the week, but, again, time constraints.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~07 "The Crimson Binome"
Captain Capacitor, the software pirate, loots Mainframe but is bested by Admiral Dot.
Game: none08 "Enzo the Smart"
Enzo is smarter when Mainframe runs at half speed.
Nonsense and blogposting aside, the room is open, so come on in!
Since it sounds like we'll be starting about a half hour late I've decided to chop Our Gang this week, we'll resume it next week. Here is tonight's revised movie schedule:
Loony Tunes: Porky in the North Woods
Beavis and Butthead Do America (1996)
We've technically watched this before, but I remember someone requesting it in chat recently, and it's in keeping with our "funny shit from the 90s" streak of the last few weeks.
S7 Eps 2 and 3
Eps 5 and 6
also here's some cute >nohooves just for a change of pace, feel free to crucify me
Can you play Rain Man? It gives me hope that my autism might someday be useful.
Like usual, we have a week of music, a PMV or two, then a couple episodes of ReBoot. I tried to select this week's images from my folder based on the "Wizards, Warriors, and a Word from our Sponsor" theme of the first episode and got a little carried away.
The room is open, and we're good to go.

Sorry, running late again. Movie schedule will be up shortly.
Here's tonight's schedule:
Merrie Melodies: Pigs is Pigs
Our Gang: A Lad an' a Lamp
Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure
A story in the same vein as Wayne's World, from around the same time period. Was requested by someone I think, but in any event is a great movie.
S7 Eps 4 and 5
Eps 7 and 8
One that could be fun to have along with Ponk dancing is Lyra.
I want watch train movie. "Unstoppable" movie is about train runaway and is an allegory for my lust for mares. Can we watch that movie and maybe little House on prairie?
ty for considering
also i got dubs we watch train movie and little House on prairie?
>>362167>also i got dubs
That's not fair.
Hey all, I’m unfortunately not going to be able to do movie night tonight. Hopefully Flappy can run one of his backup programs, otherwise I will see you all next week.
Oh, that might be a bit of an issue. I'm doing a post work thing, (booze and wings courtesy of the boss, because having a few brews with the guys after work wasn't enough fun) so I'll be late getting home tonight. I'll see if I can co-ordinate with Occult over matrix, but I'm limited to my phone right now.
Okay, I'm home now and getting stuff together. I assume we'll either have a random stream night or we'll find some long-form content on YT. My backup hosted stream hasn't been checked on in months, and the time to work out the kinks and get it up and running probably isn't when I'm running two hours behind schedule.
I'll just slap a music compilation in there for now and post something here when I have something a bit more substantial.
Was in the 4cup stream
Uhhh there is some ai dubed episodes and uhh
I'll temperatlrly open it up
Occult is in the room and is streaming the MLP AI Redub episodes here. That'll be a good start.
No real theme now, only porn.https://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactyl
Improv stream is a GO!
You're a champ for getting _something_ playing on the stream.
For posterity's sake, I'll mention that we DID get a full playlist on there, which I saved a copy of on the CyTube playlist management tool. The show of the night was the first two episodes of Shadow Raiders, made by the same people who made ReBoot, but this would have been made a few seasons in to ReBoot, so we got to see better animation technology at play. I just want to keep posting the episode summaries for ReBoot, and didn't have the time or mental bandwidth to do that on the fly.
The movie of the night was Empire of Dust. That's the documentary where the "It's all so tiresome" meme (picture attached) came from.
The YT link I tried using for Empire of Dust was muted during the music montages, but we're lucky enough to have another champ who found a good link for Empire of Dust that had all the audio where it's supposed to be. I'm sorry I don't remember who to credit for that.
For this week, I'm going to try to put together some Fluttershy-centric music and videos for the pre-stream. There's a risk that we won't have a good flow of moods in the content for the evening, but we'll see when we get there. I can slap a music playlist in there to replace that stuff if we decide that that's an issue.
I'm putting the playlist together now, and it turns out we're still a couple episodes away from the finale of Season One. One regular episode, which you're going to like since it's basically the writers complaining about the network censorship they have to deal with, and a two-parter finale.
That means that this Fluttershy-themed week will be a bit lighter on the Fluttershy content than I expected. I'll still try to get the total playlist length down to about an hour and forty-five minutes. (One hour plus two episodes.)
Alrighty folks, I'm back this week.
Here is the movie schedule for tonight. Also, since we've been doing the Our Gang shorts for awhile now and there are still a fuckton of them to get through, I thought it might be fun to take a break and watch a different show for a bit. I have another old classic series that I thought would be fun to watch, so I've scheduled that for tonight. If we like it, we can keep watching; otherwise we can just go back to Our Gang.
Merrie Melodies: Porky's Road Race
Mystery Selection :DDDDDDDDD
Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey (1991)
Sequel to Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure from 2 weeks ago. Is NOT the 2020 pozzed sequel.
S7 Eps 6 and 7
Eps 9 and 10 (finale)
Also, we'll be finishing up Samurai Jack tonight. I'll actually be out of town for the next 2 or 3 weeks, so while I may try to pop into the stream I will not have access to my movie collection or streaming software and thus will not be able to show movies, so you guys will have to fend for yourselves for a bit. I was thinking Flappy could finish showing Ghost Hunters in the interim since there was a plan to do that anyway. When I come back, I have an anime I thought would be fun to show, we'll see what everyone thinks of it.
Also, requesting that pic 2 be made into a reaction image for the chat.
Also, program will commence following Flappy's pre-stream as usual. Hope to see you all there.
Total playlist time is just under two hours, and that was a lot of trimming. It works out to under an hour of Fluttershy content plus a bit over an hour of ReBoot.
As this is a Fluttershy themed thread, I tried to keep the focus on her as a character, showing clips from the show, and go a bit lighter on the music and PMVs. Including everything would take way too much time.
There's a Fluttershy Thread that's up over here >>359123 →
for more Fluttershy images to sate your thirst for ButterHush, should it please you.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Season I to Season II transition
Canada: January 1995
USA: August and September 1995
Episodes 11, 12 and 13 were part of Season I in Canada - YTV showed them in January 1995 immediately after episode 10.
In the US, there were five months of reruns (March 1995 to August 1995) before ABC showed "Talent Night" on 12-Aug-95. After three more weeks of reruns, "Identity Crisis" was broadcast as the first two episodes of the 2nd season (9-Sep-95 and 16-Sep-95).
The opening was changed for the second season. Matthew Sinclair replaced Jesse Moss as the voice of Enzo starting with episode 11.11 "Talent Night"
Dot auditions several acts for Enzo's birthday party, including the guys from "Money For Nothing" and the Small Town Binomes. The binome joke, Dot's singing and the guitar duel from this episode are on the CD-ROM that comes with the action figures.
Game: none from the User.
SMP "ABC Saturday Morning Preview"
On Friday evening, 8-Sep-95, ABC ran a preview of the new Saturday morning line-up. Megabyte tried to take over the show.12 "Identity Crisis, part 1"
Dot is responsible for the safekeeping of the binomes PID codes, but Megabyte gets a hold of them.
Game: Commando13 "Identity Crisis, part 2"
Dot is in a world run by Megabyte. She lost the game (or did she?)
Game: Fun House
As always, the room is open, and we're ready to go when you are.https://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactylhttps://cytu.be/r/FlappyPterodactyl
Thank you Flappy and Elway for hosting movie night! I especially loved the showing of the entire Samurai Jack series. For those who missed it, it's the most based animated series ever produced and is definitely worth watching.
Hello everybody Dr- I mean OccultFacade here, movie night will continue.
For this Friday Feature line up is:
Short length feature: Popeye Vs Sinbad
Colorful archive footage of Popeye from Samurai Jack going back in time like the Terminator to eliminate the threat of some fatguy.
12 Angry Men (colorized and may be missing footage)
PSA on why talking to people is a dangerous activity for the communities, and how people regularly tend to fail somehow. Also anger, but in AI color.
MLP:FiM >No Hooves?! The Second Movie.
It's like Ponies, but worse! Using the power of memetic music ponies disguised as >No Hooves discover all >No Hooves may actually have hooves...
The directors cut had them be out of costume for the entire movie sadly that is lost to multiple fires and rain damage all that's left is the costumed version.
unless someone finds a better movie on the JewTube
Thanks a lot for taking over the streaming tonight. I see some stuff happened in the cytube room to gather the links.
Good news: I found an online archive of Ghost Stories, so we can still get those episodes in. We were on episodes 6 and 7 for tonight. Episode 5 was the one with the evil rabbit thing.
With these bits of good news, I'd say tonight's event is off to a magnificent start.
Another Friday, another curated Movie Night! I've got just under 2 hours of stuff, including the ReBoot episodes. Considering that they'll replace the Samurai Jack stuff, I think we're okay for time.
Trying to figure out a way to get a live "here's how long your playlist is right now" counter to look at while I'm building the playlist is something that would probably help with this. Maybe I'll start building playlists ahead of time so they're more finely tuned or something.
The room is open, and we're at the starting line!
The ReBoot Episodes
14 (v2.1) - "Infected" - 31 August 1995 (Canada)
Megabyte interferes with the scheduled upgrade, infiltrates the Core.
Game: none, but Dot does a neat Sigourney Weaver imitation.
Disguised as an upgrade, Megabyte enters Mainframe's core control chamber. He badly hurts Phong and initiates an Erase Command that almost destroys the System, only to be thwarted by Bob exploiting his greed. Hexidecimal hints at a surprising connection to Megabyte.
Cultural references: Megabyte uses a self-destruct command and a pose emulating the film Predator, while Dot's use of an Exo-Skeleton may refer to Ellen Ripley in Aliens. When Dot attempts to crush Megabyte with a mechanical exoskeleton, a shot of his head is shown where his eyes dim in a way similar to the way the Terminator is destroyed in The Terminator.
15 (v2.2) - "High Code" - 7 September 1995 (Canada)
A code master comes looking for a master who has left the guild.
Game: Wild West Locomotive
A Codemaster, Lens the Reaper, wreaks havoc in Mainframe while looking to challenge the legendary Codemaster Talon who took refuge in the system. Phong and Bob assure him that there is no one in Mainframe called Talon. Enzo discovers that Old Man Pearson is Talon, and has to convince him to come out of hiding—while Bob tricks Lens into a Game with the hope of nullifying them both to save the System. In the end, Lens is moved by the Mainframers' honorable willingness to die for each other.
Cultural references: The title refers to High Noon. The Game references the real-life Canadian town of Spuzzum. As Enzo travels to see Old Man Pearson, he sings the theme song to "Batman". The weapon of choice of a Codemaster, the Gibson coil pike, is a reference to William Gibson, author of Neuromancer. The number on the train, 9502, reflects that this was the second episode produced in the 1995 season.
