    Holiday Special - Best Gift Ever

    That was one of the best specials if not the best special by far in the entire series! So many great lines, funny moments, facial expressions, surprises, and scenes! It was just so much fun to see each of the Mane 6 go through their own mini adventures. I have to agree with everyone whom said that everything, especially their characterizations were on point which I felt was a big strength of this. On an additional note, it was very nice to see the Maine 6 given the main focus which hasn't been done in awhile. I absolutely loved the songs in this episode and I just want to say how very sweet the ending song was and it's one of my favorites of Season 8. I'd say the biggest surprise was hear Derpy speak and getting a full scene. It sounds like she got a different voice actress because she sounds different than in "Slice of Life". One that last thing I want to say is how awful I felt for Marble when Sugar Belle was kissing Big Mac. Poor thing had her heart broken in half. Finally.....PUDDING!

    S08:E12 - Marks for Effort

    Oh Glimglam, you and your meme-able facial expressions! That was truly the highlight of this week's episode! Speaking of which "That's devious!" was such a classic line! I love how the writers give her that tiny bit of villainy within her. The episode's biggest strength was that it wasn't easy to predict what was going to happen and that made it all the more fun! I'm not sure how to feel about Cozy Glow. On one hand, she's adorable, but I don't know how to feel about her as a character.

    S07:E25+E26 - Shadow Play

    I've seen the Season 7 finale a few times now and it goes right up there with The Cuite Remark as one of my favorite season finales of the show. So much continually, things coming to full circle, develop, and detail coming out of this! We've been hearing about Starswirl so much and I'm glad we finally get to see him for real now despite being an asshole. Personally, I really want to see him come back in Season 8. There's so much character development potential within that's begging to be done! Speaking of coming back, I certainly wasn't expecting the Elements of Harmony to make a comeback nor stay around after being used. I'm curious to see where things go in regards to them from Season 8 onwards. All in all, great job, writers! I'm looking forward to seeing what the next season brings and given the little preview we've seen so far, I'm excited!

    S07:E22 - Once Upon A Zeppelin

    Oh boy, I'm pretty sure a lot of people can related to the moral of this episode. I really felt bad for Twilight here. Yes, she bit off more than she could chew, but she has a habit of ignoring her own well-being and I'm glad that Cadence brought her to her senses. That talk she had with Twilight was the best scene in the episode. It's great to see Iron Will make a return. No doubt he was a lot more nasty than the last time we saw him. I gotta give him credit for both his escape and realizing his own "money back guarantee" mistake he made the last time as I thought it was clever on his part. I'm sure we haven't seen the last of him. I have to say, I love Twilight's parent's especially her mom. The whole bit with her and extreme sports was hilarious. I really didn't care for Startracker though. He was both cringey and creepy.

    S07:E04 - Rock Solid Friendship

    Now that was a great episode! If there's only one complaint I can make it's that Pinkie was too overbearing in trying to get Maud to make friends. Hasn't she learned her lesson from "A Friend Indeed"? Maud's humor and personality is why I love her character so much. She's the polar opposite of Pinkie, yet they work wonderfully off one another, and their interaction is one of my favorite duo character interactions in the series because it always makes for some great laughs. One thing I find odd is Starlight's sudden interest in kites. It felt like it was forced in just to get an interest going. Speaking of Starlight, given her interaction with Trixie, would I love to see Maud meet her just to see how they'd interact together! It'd make for a good laugh! On a minor note, it's great to see the entire Pie family make an appearance. Even some of the backgrounds ponies got a bit of a showing with a Lyra name drop which was a nice surprise. One last thing, I found that cave area with the waterfall fascinating and I hope they explore that location more in the future.

    S07:E03 - A Flurry of Emotions

    I have to come out and say it, I wasn't a fan of this episode. The whole "can't take care of the baby" plotline has been done to death, heck we had it already with Baby Cakes. The only redeeming thing about this episode is Spike. I love how he's going back to his "keeping others in check" personality like how he was at the earlier era of the series and I hope the writers keep it up!

    S07:E01+02 - Celestial Advice/All Bottled Up

    Well that was certainly a change of pace. Instead of a 2 parter big event happening, we get two episodes right off the bat. Let's start with the first one. It's a clearly a Twilight/Celestia episode and to say there were many emotions is an understatement. This is the bonding between Twilight and Celestia that I wish we'd gotten more of, but better now than never. Spike keeping everyone in check and Discord is his antics is always a hoot. With the second episode, I absolutely love the chemistry between Starlight and Trixie. They clearly work well off one another and I hope to see more of their interactions in the future. It looks like the show is taking Starlight in the direction that it took Twilight when she was first starting out, but that's ok since I personally love character development in general.

    S06:E23 - Where the Apple Lies

    Now that was a great episode! I certainly was not expecting to see some more exploration of the background of the Apple family. Big Mac had so many great moments and personally after Brotherhooves Social, this is the best episode featuring him to date! I also loved the interaction between the young Applejack and Big Mac! I also want to point out how simply awful Applejack is about lying. It's amazing how no one caught on it early given how over the top they were. One last thing I want to point out is how fantastic the characterization of Filthy Rich is. I'm glad they didn't give him the stereotypically rich guy kind of personality. On a side note, Spoiled Milk? What a name to have!

    S06:E21 - Every Little Thing She Does

    That was one of the funniest and best episodes of the season by far and definitely the most solid Starlight episode yet! Of all the Mane 6 "bots", Pinkie was the highlight of it! Her blank stare was creepy, yet so funny at the same time! I know it's easy to say "Well geez, Starlight, you didn't see this coming?", but let's not forget she's starting out with the friendship lesson stuff. Look how Twilight developed over the course of the series after all. Personally, I wish Spike had stuck around during all the antics, because he snarky commentary on everything would have been pure gold! Vogel, you absolutely delivered with this episode and I'm looking forward to see what else you come up with!

    S06:E20 - Viva Las Pegasus

    Oh man did Fluttershy absolutely kill it in this episode! I've been loving her character development and I personally think it's one of the best things about this season so far! It's great to see more new area, Las Pegasus. Honestly, it doesn't surprise me how G rated they made it considering that this is a technically a kids show after all. It doesn't surprise me that Gladmane turned out to be the antagonist. It looked shady right from the get go. I actually found it refreshing that Flim and Flam were protagonists for once even if they were going back to their old ways in the end. I will say that double con that was pulled off was very clever. All in all, this was a great episode and I hope they keep up the great work regarding Fluttershy's character!

    S06:E17 - Dungeons & Discords

    Man did Discord really steal the show in this episode! His wit and antics never get old! The interaction between the character was big strenth of this episode as well. My main complaint is the pacing. Most of the episode was spent with Discord being very reluctant and it wasn't until the latter half of the episode that we actually get some D&D gameplay. I really wished we've gotten some more gameplay out of it. All in all, a fun little episode.

    S06:E13 - Stranger Than Fan Fiction

    Now that was a great episode! We've all met someone like Quibble Pants at one point or another and he's a very love to hate kind of character and they did a great job with the moral of the story here. Another thing I really liked about this episode was the adventure part of it. It was so much fun and I loved the interaction between Rainbow and Quibble. I think Oswalt did a great job playing him and he gets bonus points for the improv of that end credits rant! Overall, a great start of the second half of Season 6!

    S06:E12 - Spice Up Your Life

    I have to agree with the people who were saying that Rarity wasn't out of character. Keep in mind that she's a fashion expert, not a food expert, so it's understandable to see how she was portrayed here. I also want to say I love the interactivity between Pinkie and Rarity. They really work well off one another. The song was pretty good. My only major complaint about this episode was that the resolution was too quick. I know it's a 22-minute episode and all, but I personally wished they built up to it a little more.

    S06:E11 - Flutter Brutter

    Now that was a great episode! Much better than last week's! I'm glad we got to learn more about Fluttershy's family, and I have to say, her parents weren't were whom I was expecting to me character-wise. I'd say the biggest strength of this episode was Flutershy herself and that she didn't need to learn how to be assertive this time and how exactly how to be assertive towards her brother, even showing her parents to be more assertive as well. It's one of her best character moments so far and shows how she's really progressed. As for Zephyr himself, jesus christ was he something else. That's all I have to say about him! I will say his voice actor did a great job though!

    S06:E07 - Newbie Dash

    I going to be honest, I didn't care for this episode at all. In fact, this might be the lowest point of Season 6 so far. All that training and buildup and Rainbow makes a complete fool out of herself to the point where it becomes so cringeworthy and it didn't help that the whole "Rainbow Crash" bit got old fast. Yes, it was her first day as an official Wonderbolt, and yes people do make mistakes on their first day, but she's better than this and has shown to be so. The episode did have 2 strengths though, Ashleigh Ball's nailed it in her performance and how the episode addressed Rainbow's flaw and the support the Wonderbolts gave in regards to help her overcome it. At least finally Rainbow achieves her ultimate dream of becoming a Wonderbolt. But other than that, it was a pretty meh episode for me.
