The crew of My Little Pony, Friendship is Magic released Scare Master prematurely. Is it worth all the special attention?

I was pretty angry at this episode because it was a Fluttershy-overcoming-her-fears episode in a season that actually had her having charater development out side those kinds of plots, so this one felt like a regression. After thinking it over, I am far better predisposed to it, but I still feel disappointed in it. It's not the regression I initially thought it was and it manages to do some cool things with Fluttershy's character, and the moral of "not my cup of tea" is a pretty decent one, but I still feel like we should move past this formula and her fear and paranoia of halloween began to grate on my nerves. 

 

One of the things about the tea party shows that from, Fluttershy perspective, being an unkind, unsupportive and rude friend/host is one the most horrible things in the world. Really says something about her, y'know.

Not the first time I've heard that, actually. It just didn't hit me the same way. If it were about Fluttershy being cripplingly shy around strangers, the way she was when she first met Twilight, then I would've objected. But I didn't really see this as a conflict dealing with "greater insecurities" again. It's just one of those specific anxieties (a pretty tough one, as we saw last Nightmare Night) that she still has to sort out, due to her timid and meek disposition.

 

And yes, it definitely speaks to her character that those were the most horrifying things she could imagine.

Yeah, no, the screamer didn't work on me XP

 

The moral of the story pretty much made the episode for me. The message itself is pretty good and the delivery also worked very well, I feel.

 

Now for that burning question I've had since this review came out...

Have anything in particular planned for your review of Hearthbreakers?

You're not the first one to say that to me about the screamer...

 

While I also thought the moral was pretty good, I thought the episode already did enough to be in my good graces before that. I still don't think it's a great one, but there's a lot to appreciate here.

 

As for Heathbreakers, I am reviewing it, if that's what you mean. I don't know if it's going to be that different from my other reviews, but in many ways, I do think it'll be a particularly interesting one.
