Sadly though, this episode brought back some pretty unpleasant memories which was quite distracting and the lackluster ending really didn't help there. Not only have I been caught up in an internet feud myself, which I feel quite ashamed of as you can imagine, but I've also attempted to act as mediator for mutual friends that didn't want to be wrong. Suffice it to say I have no success stories to speak of.

 

Not a good reason not to enjoy an episode, I know.

Well, at least you had the maturity to see it as a bad decision and that your friends should've been calm about it. Sometimes seeing how things go wrong really is the best way to learn how to work past them. (Heck, I used to barely be able to talk to anyone at all, let alone rant to an opinionated fanbase.)

I think Castle Sweet Castle still the best episode written by them, Rarity Investigates comes second. This episode lacks of creativity writting, these Family Feud plots are as old as the earth =.=.

Perhaps, but I do think the execution matters. Castle Sweet Castle was kinda wooden in how it went out of it's way to linger on the parts where the friends all want to contribute and add (wait for it) too much, before trying to back peddle and taking out everything - which, in case you don't get it yet, means there's not enough. And Rarity Investigates seemed like it was going through the motions a lot with its noir parody, with some scenes that didn't do any thing all that funny, clever, or interesting, as though just resembling a noir scene was supposed to be oh-so entertaining. 

 

Despite a familiar plot layout, this one felt like it was having fun with almost all of its scenes, and it didn't dedicate great lengths of time to hammering in the obvious. Still not a great one, but I would argue that it's a case of having to see the forest through the trees.
