A Christmas special instead of a Halloween special? Call me disappointed.

Won't be able to watch even at airing time. At that point, I gotta get to work. So please, if you want to talk to me, please no spoilers

I hope the Young 6 are in this. I'd love to see them meet Shining Armor, Cadence and Flurry Heart. :wub:

I can relate to Twilight and her friends. The chaos of the holidays are getting out of hand, and needs to be controlled! CHAOS... CONTROL? I'm gonna get my nephew a plushie of Shadow the Hedgehog!

Okay, Shining Armor and Cadence openly flirting is adorable. So is the term Twily-nanas. Oh and Applejack actually said she got her hat from her dad. EAT IT, SKEPTICS! :D

Alright so it looks like it's MLP's time to get a 44 minute long special episode.  Given what I have seen from Equestria Girls and there 44 minute specials, I had hoped that MLP FIM could also make something enjoyable in this format.  After watching Best Gift Ever, I thought that it was enjoyable.  Applejack was great here, I especially liked her bluntly telling Spike that she didn't pick Rarity, as that was one of the funniest jokes in the special.  The special started out with a cute new song, and ended with a pretty decent song as well.  While not the best thing from G4, I thought it still made for a decent time.

Alright, this is probably one of my favourite MLP episodes ever. Amazing songs, amazing moments, new characters... Holy shit, is been quite a long time since I really loved a episode such like this one. 

And, again...

Friendship is the best gift ever

Now, let's wait for season 9! I hope it will be the best season ever :yay:

Well, that was fun! While it was somewhat predictable, it was still very funny, had great songs, was heartfelt, and managed to have a few surprising moments near the end. A very good special and a good way to tide us over until Season 9.

Did anyone else love how Shining Armor was in pure snark mode the entire time?

(Heads up spoilers ahead!)

My God, this special was awesome! New characters, a ton of fan service (Dash and Discord doing a GI Joe reference), tons of Sparity references, new creatures, DERPY SPEAKS!!! :D 

Oh, on top of that, a ton of folks watching it too. I was on a stream of this being shown; 800+ people watching and the chat crashed after it was over.  

Damn, what a special indeed. They have a ton in store for Season 9!

Props to the writer for not just featuring Shining Armor and Cadence, but also by giving them great dialogue and giving them something to do.

"The Best Gift Ever!" was fun! :twilighthat:Only one of five of my predictions were correct. :pinkiehat:

Gotta say; this was possibly the best Christmas-anything G4 has done up to this point. Granted it's either this or the musical one, but overall this was sweet, charming, and fun. ^^

Also, while the other Christmas-themed episodes were good, most of them outside of The Hearth's Warming Club were fairly predictable. The Best Gift Ever has a few unexpected twists  near the end.
