3 out of 5....

Its alright. Its good. Its fine... bla bla bla.


I like tank... RD actually gets rather annoying in this episode.. And not in a  good way.

Its not a episode I go out of my way to watch, but its one that I don't mind watching.

Up side: tortoise love...

Down Side: Needs more Alicorns.

I liked this Episode, it was a fun race and i also liked, that it showed a bit more Animals than usual. I just disliked Rainbow Dashs Personality in this one. Sometimes she is just so full of herself, that it honestly annoys me, not as much as Pinkie Pie, but Rainbow Dash has become the second worst Pony to me.

This is blatantly terrific. Rainbow's still kinda selfish and rude in this, but never too mean-spirited, and she's also at her absolute most charismatic. The animals are cute, the script is laugh-a-minute, and there's a joyous momentum to all of it that I just find irresistible. Plus, Rainbow Dash didn't need to be humiliated to learn her lesson. It was just an accident which came from her not paying attention, and the episode doesn't even overemphasize her overconfidence. Of course, the moral isn't really about pets - it's about people, about the value of perseverance. Otherwise, this is one of those episodes where talking further would just involve me listing great gags, so here's a few observations I had this time:

  • It would have been funnier if they had used a real eagle call. 
  • I need gifs of Rainbow Dash saying "pause for dramatic effect" and "dun dun dun!"
  • Wow, Rainbow Dash saying Twilight would "never qualify to be her pet" sure is a roundabout way of calling her a nerd. 
  • Oh, Fluttershy references the song they sang earlier. Is this the first time a character acknowledged the musical numbers?
  • Shout out to the moment when the falcon shakes Tank's foot(?) and walks sadly away. Good sportsmanship. 


Entertainment: 10/10

Characters: 8/10

Themes: 9/10

Story: 9/10

Overall: 93/100

am I the only one who thinks that rainbow dash was kinda acting like a dick in that episode? she saw the passion, love and care tank felt towards her, and yet she decided to pick a pet based on their skills. that's not how you pick a pet, that's not how you treat a future family member. I really felt sorry for tank, and I hope rainbow dash really realised how horrible she's been acting, 'cause otherwise, she wouldn't deserve a pet as wonderful and great as tank.

It depends on what you are looking for in a pet. Wanting one that flies makes perfect sense for a flyer.

I wish she had taken the falcon. Tank winning was just too predictable. Besides, he seems to knock himself around a lot in future episodes, and that’s just no fun to watch. I know Rainbow crashes a lot, but it seems wrong with the tortoise.

Twilight making a comment on Rainbow not knowing what pets are for is pretty funny since she got hers as an extra helper.

I like this episode. There's nothing great here (except for the song), but it has a decent story and some good jokes through it. Good episode.

Score: 7/10

This one's mixed. The song is one of the best of the show and there are many entertaining moments, but a lot of the episode is repetitive and boring. And there are a lot of moments that feel like they're trying too hard to be cool, like talking about "radicalness". There's also the fact that Tank being Dash's pet is both incredibly obvious and really contrived. I don't quite think this one's bad, but it's not very good.

Score: 4/10
