  1. Didn't like the episode too much. The whole episode was everypony making mistakes and messing up the plan, which was frustrating to watch. The point of the frustration was at the plot, and not the characters themselves. I doubt everycreature would've messed it up this bad were they in character. The new interview style, while new (I do recall there being a similar scene somewhere else, but it still came off as pretty new), felt out of place and weird. Looking at the polls, I'm surprised at how almost everyone found this episode to be good. Maybe this episode just wasn't for me.
  2. The CMC turning into grown ups was a cool concept, but the lessons were a bit too forced. A tiny pet that turns into a giant tornado just for the sake of the plot wasn't really the most sensible thing, after all. Despite the episode's flaws, I loved hearing the 'adult' versions of the CMC, especially Sweetie Belle. She sounded so mature and foalish at the same time
  3. This episode was great. It offered a new insight into some of the less recognized villains in mlp, which I always appreciate. I had forgotten about their existence until now, to be honest. I'm really satisfied with how good the episodes of FiM have been lately. Every episode feels so much more precious when you realize that for some characters, it might be the last time you ever get to see them.
  4. An excellent episode featuring Starlight's new job as a headmare! I found the 'wink' jokes by Trixie to be cute, along with many others. I see some controversy regarding Twilight hiring Starlight at the job without any form of verification, which is quite interesting as it's something I hadn't given any thought about. Her actions do seemingly contradict the moral of the episode, but I think there's something more to the situation. Unlike Trixie, Starlight has worked with Twilight for years, proving her ability as a counselor and a temporary headmaster. All those years counted as a certificate to skip the process. This also lies in line with how Sunburst could get his job as a vice headmaster right away unlike the others.
  5. I'm not much of a Spike-Rarity shipper, but the episode was great! As others point out, the Twilight scene where she falls on the fainting couch was a pure gem. That scene alone would be worth watching the whole episode for, although there were a ton of other things I liked as well. I considered the relationship between Spike and Rarity in this episode to be closer to friendship than something romantic, and loved the episode's lesson about jealously and friendship. Wanting to keep friends to myself is something I can relate to. It's not that I have any traumatic event about it or anything, but I could just feel how sad the situation would be. I felt really bad for Rarity throughout the episode. If I had to choose between her and Gabby, I honestly would support Rarity more, but I'm glad Gabby and Spike remained good friends too.
  6. I'm impressed at how the writers can still come up with unique ideas for episodes. I never imagined to hear Angel's actual voice in the show. I haven't really cared much about him until now as he didn't play any significant roles besides mildly annoying Fluttershy from time to time. This episode told a lot about him and his personality, and I'm glad to get a new character I can care about.
  7. This was a fun episode for sure. I see some people complaining that Twilight treated her friends like servants, but I personally don't see any problems with it. She's the princess after all, so isn't it fine to give out orders to her friends when she's on princess duty?
  8. This episode was excellent compared to the one that came before. The lesson didn't feel forced, the jokes were funny, and the process in which Twilight learned her lesson made sense. What I didn't like about the previous episode was that RD seemingly randomly changed her mind and learned her lesson. In this episode, TS realizes how mean she had been to Pinkie by being treated by Sunburst the same way and getting apologized afterwards. This makes her change in heart much less forced, and even gets the lesson across in a more convincing manner. The theme and storyline felt original, too. I loved the theme of a quiz show, as it brought in a whole new fun of trying to get the answers into the episode. The questions were mostly easy, but there were some that I couldn't remember and added to the challenge. Finally, the slapstick style jokes were simple but worked well. The whole of the episode was filled with exciting and interesting moments. I can see why some people dislike the freaky Twi part of the episode, because I usually do too. However, Twi actually turns to relying on a unfair strategy of using the rulebook in this episode, and that part was hilarious. It was like seeing what an 'evil' version on Twi would be like. The scene where she tells Fluttershy "rule x.x - no help from pets!" was my favourite.
  9. I always feel bad when I have to say this, but this episode was boring. It was just 17 minutes of RD being annoying and irresponsible (I do not dislike her at all, but that was how she was portrayed) along with a cheerleading song that didn't sound that good.
  10. This was a fun episode to watch. Cheese Sandwich is one of my favorite ponies that hasn't been on the show for a while, and I loved the concept of Pinkie trying to help her old friend who was once her biggest rival. The ending was a bit of a letdown, though. Considering the state he was in, Cheese recovered from his depression too easily and abruptly, ruining the story. The song didn't sound bad but felt a bit out of place as well. What I would've liked was a song about Pinkie gradually brightening Cheese up, by showing him how he made other ponies smile. At the end of the song Cheese would be his old self again, smiling and laughing.
  11. I liked it. What a cute episode. Visuals: The new movie style looks fantastic! It brings a more modern look to the episode and shows that the showmakers can pull this new style off even without a huge budget. I know that the animators who make the usual episodes weren't the ones responsible for this new episode, but still. Music: The music was okay. It wasn't as memorable as the ones in the movie, but that'd be expecting too much for a ordinary special. Story: It was okay, but a bit simple. I'd say the story is the only part I wish was better. The mane 6 basically faced no adversities in the process of bringing color to the town, and there was no element of surprise whatsoever. It's a cute, wholesome story, but not an interesting one. 'Best Gift Ever' will still be the best special episode for me. That episode was perfect...
  12. I agree with everyone on how the sideline story with the mane 6 was a bit lousy, but really liked the episode as a whole. The story about the sisters had a lot of fuuny joke moments which clicked with me, and the overall plot about the sisters was interesting. Not much else to say, was a solid episode overall
  13. I had no idea Scootaloo's parents were showing up in this episode, so the story was quite a surprise. There's probably evidence that proves otherwise, but I always imagined scoot to not have parents at all, due to them going missing or dying in an accident. I remember there being a fan theory which suggests this and that's likely where I got the idea. I like this episode's happier version of the story more, so no complaints there. Congrats to Scoot for having her parents, I guess? I liked the overall plot, even the ending. Despite that fact, I can also relate to many people who were dissapointed by the ending. I too was wondering how the show will cope with some of the more serious issues such as the seperation of friends, so I was let down when the ending was different from what I expected. In retrospect, however, I'm glad the episode ended the way it did. It would have really broken my heart if the CMC broke. As much as I'd like to see much more mature issues being dealt with in FiM, I want Scoot, Applebloom, and Sweetie Belle to be happy. Cutie Mark Crusaders forever!
  14. The overall plot was a bit mundane, but both the jokes and the lesson felt original and they were what made the episode interesting for me. Work-friend balance was a problem that hadn't been dealt with before, maybe with Twilight but not with Starlight. I think this moral is targeted more towards adults who are too engrossed in work to spend time with their kids and friends. I found this plot relatable. It's not that I was neglecting my friends, and rather that I was thinking I should do more work instead of spending my time off with my friends. Throughout the episode, I realized how my thoughts were flawed. Time spent meeting my friends was equally as precious as time spent doing work, and there was no need to neglect one to prioritize another. The jokes were hilarious, too. The ones I especially liked were Maud saying "Just when I thought he couldn't be better" when Mud turns into stone, and SilverStream saying "You weren't that helpful anyway". Both were original jokes that hadn't been done before, and that made them stand out even more.
  15. Hmm. Not much to say about this one. To be honest, this was just a meh episode for me. The slapstick style of jokes where Big Mac would smash into things weren't the type of things I find particularly funny, and the episode felt really calm in general. I got the feeling that Big Mac was behind everything in the middle of the episode, and knowing that killed a bit of suspense on whether the Great Seedling was real as well. Maybe we'll get to see him(or possibly her) later... but now wasn't the time I guess.
