  1. I like your new "About Me" page. You did a great job on it. :)

    S08:E11 - Molt Down

    You make a good point, but I still feel Twilight should have asked Ember about how and if dragons age. I feel it's something she should have thought of ahead of time. Again you make good points but since Twilight is taking care of Spike I feel she should have used the resources she had to learn about things like this, even if they were limited. If you care about the person you are taking care of, why not go the extra step? Her ignorance is understandable, but it simply being mentioned she at least tried to learn more about how dragons grow would have been nice. I can't help but be annoyed when it doesn't seem like Twilight tried to use her resources to help Spike grow. For the others, I could understand this, but Twilight is basically raising Spike and has the means to at least attempt to know more (Ember), so she should have gone the extra step.

    S08:E11 - Molt Down

    Well, this episode was relatable X,D In all seriousness though I really liked this episode and I'm glad we're seeing Spike grow. I was a bit worried he'd stay a baby dragon forever which would be boring. However, I wished there was a bit more design changes to spike than just giving him wings. Like, the grey diamond spots that were left after he stopped itching looked pretty cool, wish they had stayed. Regardless though, I enjoyed this episode and could relate to his struggle. I was worried this would be a sort of gross-out episode but instead, the episode focused more one Spike's worries about the future and I enjoyed his inner conflict. I'm also Rarity wasn't the typical diva type and was more worried about Spike's comfort rather than being grossed out and not wanting to have anything to do with him. Seeing that Rarity not only went to Zecora to help herself but to get something for Spike as well was sweet. The only issues I have with this episode is Rarity having hearing problems for most of the second half of the episode. It was more annoying than funny. The most frustrating issue, however, was Twilight. Twilight, despite being the one who looks after Spike, was terribly unprepared. You think she would have done enough research on dragons so she could properly take care of him. She should have known this is how dragons grow so she could prepare. Instead, she is completely clueless. If you're going to take care of someone that is a different species than your own, so they probably function differently in some regards, the least you can do is pick up a book on their species and learn the important things like, I don't know, what happens to them as they grow up? Otherwise, though I enjoyed the episode, though it had some annoying issues, so I'm giving it a B-

    S08:E08 - The Parent Map

    I honestly have mixed feelings about this episode. I wanted to enjoy it but the parents kind of held me back. They were just so cliched. I like the lesson and thought it was rather heartwarming and I had a chuckle here and there at the comedic moments, but there was nothing that really stood out to me when it came to this episode. It honestly reminds me of the situation Rainbow Dash had with her parents but slightly altered and Starlight and Sunburst's parents were less interesting to me compared to them and felt more cliched. I just didn't find them enjoyable to watch. I loved some of Starlight's and Sunburst's reactions (especially Sunburst with the welcome door), yet I didn't feel all that invested in the plot. It was pretty obvious what the friendship problem was going to turn out to be after the parents stopped fighting and the rest of the episode consists of the parents doing the same annoying and cliched things over, and over, and over again. While this episode has some fun and funny moments, overall it felt like it was lacking and I just couldn't get all that invested in it. When it ended I found myself asking, "is that really it?" I'm pretty mixed on this one because I really liked some aspects of it while others just bored me. For now, I think I'm going to give it a C+. A C because the episode was meh for me, felt like it was lacking, and while the parents had a few good moments, they were pretty cliche overall. Then the plus because it did have some fun and funny moments and I enjoyed Starlight and Sunburst in this episode. It's between a C+ and a B-, and right now I think I'm going to stick with the C+.

    S08:E07 - Horse Play

    I didn't like this episode at first, but after getting to the ending I had a better appreciation for it. Why? Originally I was getting very annoyed at Twilight for not being honest when Celestia has shown she values honesty and almost all her friends were telling her she needed to tell the truth. Celestia's reaction helped me like the episode more because she hit the nail right on the head. Twilight should have known better and it was nice to see her relationship with Celestia not only elaborated on throughout the episode, but tested. The only time I think we've ever seen a strain on their relationship was in a Canterlot Wedding, but it wasn't because Twilight did something personal to Celestia. This time, however, it is. Also, Twilight's explanation basically saved the episode for me. I'm still annoyed at her and think she was being silly about the whole situation, but I get it. She should have known better, but I get it. And we get to see an appropriately emotional scene between Twilight and Celestia. It was nice to be able to see them bond and the moment was actually pretty touching. And onto the bad. First up, Spike abuse, something I was hoping the show was over with. But nope, the main six need a distraction so they just throw him on stage and he gets tomatoes thrown at him. Do they help? Nope. I really wanna believe the main six are better than that. And Spike seems perfectly okay with it even though it was a terrible move on their part. But, onto my biggest issue with this episode, Twilight's meltdown. And, Twilight's meltdown isn't really the issue, the reason she has that meltdown is the issue for me. I know how Pinkie can be but, she's not dumb. She knows fireworks are dangerous, I seriously doubt she'd get a bunch then pack them up as a sun with a really big one. Pinkie can be a little air-headed, but she knows better than that. So, Twilight's meltdown that happens in result feels forced. Why couldn't the stress of everything just be the reason she broke down? Small details and problems pile up, and with the whole Celestia problem being on her shoulders the whole episode, there's no need for some exaggerated "destroy everything" moment. Why not just have there be some technical problems they're having (custom etc. but not because of the big explosion) and have Twilight lose it because all of these things are piling up and that be the reason she has her meltdown? Also, there's no need for her to make up a terrible plan c, just have the other main six express issues they're having. Twilight will get overwhelmed and break down. I would have enjoyed that scenario better than the one the episode gave. But, despite its flaws, overall this was a fun episode and I'm glad the show is giving Celestia some more screentime and development. I've always wanted to see more of Celestia considering, as the audience, were rather distant from her and usually just get to see her being a ruler. Sometimes a surprisingly enthusiastic one (like at the Grand Galloping Gallas when things go awry), but nothing too personal. Here we got to see her relationship with Twilight be tested and she is hurt in a personal way. Instead of disapproving of Twilight's actions, which is usually the case for when she's mad at Twilight, we get to see her upset because Twilight hurt her on a personal level. I loved how we could see how close they had become and got to see Celestia acting more open and real feeling rather than the majestic princess put on a peddle stool. And all in all, Celestia was awesome in this episode. Overall I give it a B-.

    S08:E06 - Surf and/or Turf

    Well, I'm late to the party as usual...Overall I enjoyed this episode. It's not one of my favorites, but I enjoyed it. I'm glad to see the show tackling dilemmas like Silver Streak's and the episode taught a good lesson. While divorce is not mentioned, it's apparent through the way things are. The parents are living in separate homes and the kid has to go back and forth between them. He feels like he has to pick one over the other, and I'm sure a lot of kids going through that same situation have felt that way. The conversation between Silver Streak and his parents at the end was heartwarming and held a good message. Now onto the CMC. I enjoyed Scootalo and Sweetie Belle's excitement when it came to the locations, especially Scootalo's. It warmed my heart and broke it at the same time. As for Scootalo's and Sweetie Belle's fight, however... I get that they're still young but the whole thing seemed over the top and forced. I can't see either of them refusing to talk to each other over a simple disagreement. Season 1-3 CMC maybe, but I can't really see them being so childish now with how they've matured over the years. Luckily this didn't last too long so it didn't detract from the episode too much. I was also glad to see Twilight, despite her originally coming there to do research, seems pretty relaxed and is having fun. Seeing as how she used to be, a bit uptight and not really into partying I'm glad to see she's become more relaxed and enjoyed her time there. Also, while I'm glad you don't need to have seen the movie to understand what's going on in the episode, I am not a big fan of shows, movies, books, etc. leaning on other media. I'm fine with them taking inspiration from other media related to it, but they have to build up those aspects in the show instead of leaning on the movie. I would have liked to see an introduction to the new species in the show instead of it leaning on knowledge from the movie and kind of just throwing them in at the start of the season with not much explanation or build up for these races, they were just suddenly a part of the universe now. Though I am grateful you didn't need movie knowledge to understand this episode, I still wish this wasn't an aspect in the show now. I love these new races and everything, but again, I'd want a build up and good introduction instead of just throwing them into the show. Anyways, overall the episode gets a B. It wasn't the best but it was enjoyable overall and had a good and important message.

    S08:E05 - Grannies Gone Wild

    I'm no expert, but if things like that bother you that much it'd probably be better if you stayed away. No reason to make yourself feel overly uncomfortable. During the whole episode, Rainbow Dash worries over the grannies and their well being because Aj told her to be careful about certain things. Ex: Make sure they don't get too excited, they can only eat soft foods, be careful while dancing, etc. which sounds like something that'd discomfort you. In the end, it's your call but considering I don't think you'd enjoy this episode.
