What's not to like about this episode? The 'At the Gala' song is very good. Each character had their expectations of what the night was going to be like which goes completely south. I will admit that Fluttershy's mental break down was a little weird. Rarity smashing her glass slipper always gets a laugh out of me.

This really was a great episode and a really good ending to season 1 I have to say. The part where Fluttershy goes really made me happy somehow. "You're going to LOVE ME!!!", would've been the best p

This is the most pure episode in the whole series, in my opinion - there's a certain aura about it that sets apart from the rest of the episodes in the series, even my personal favorites like "Rarity

Two classics in a row! What a way to end the season! This episode doesn't just end the season, it also ends the arc of the mane six becoming best friends in an amazing way. The episode delivers 6 mini stories and each one contributes something funny. The payoff for the Grand Galloping Gala arc was genius, the comedy is fantastic, the song was great, and the entire episode is one of the best of the show.

Score: 10/10

Proof that a season finale doesn't necessarily need to be an epic battle with a huge villain. This was a very fun episode that doesn't try to be something it isn't. The humour is on point and there's never really a dull moment. Fantastic way to end the season.

This is the best episode of the season. The story is interesting and subversive, the comedy is on point, and every character has a moment to shine.

Score: 10/10

I was always hoping that Best Night would be how they ended every season. No unanswered (previously posed) questions, no cliffhangers, no drama. It was just a perfect feel-good ep. Also, At The Gala is probably the song that gets stuck in my head the most.

Seeing crazy fluttershy is the best thing ever. It was a very entertaining episode that led to a nice conclusion to the first season. Celestia enjoying the havoc was for me at least, predictable and funny. I wish we got more of blueblood in future episodes just to know how he is a prince at all. 9/10

Not every finale has to include a fight to save the world, a well done slice of life episode can be just what we need.

I remember this was another one of those episodes I'd rewatch a gazillion times haha. Very cute and I loved the songs. 9/10 

The Mane 6 looked amazing in their gala dresses :darling:

Very fun and lighthearted.  The first and last simple and fun season finale.  Every subsequent one had to be an apocalyptic, doom of Equestria event.  It was nice to have a simple one.  It was really neat how they did the throwback to this episode in the donut shop at the end of The End of the End Pt II.  This one had fake Spitfire voice, right?  They didn't get real Spitfire voice until S2.  Unless the VA just did it really differently.

It's basically the end of  season arch about the great galloping gala and I think it's good and lighthearted.To have these girls just some fun evening together without high stacks is definitely nice and I can enjoy this.  The fact that the gala is everything but what these six girls dreamed about it, is also a good lesson.

A good ending for season one and good episode.

This episode was amazing! Without a doubt, the funniest episode of the season.

EDIT:Expanded Thoughts: The song was awesome, the jokes are really funny, and I just love how this show was just wanna have fun. My favorite part of this entire episode was Fluttershy when she get really angry. That cracked me up so hard every time I watched it.

It's the season 1 finale, so of course the writers had to go all out on this one

There's little to dislike about this episode. The animation was good, each of the mane 6's antics were fun to watch, and the song 'At The Gala' does a great job at addressing each of their goals when heading to the Gala. In fact, I like how the episode made it pretty clear the Grand Galloping Gala is a fancy ball where formality is considered as the norm, not the traditional, fun kind where people have fun all night long. For me, I think it's fun to spot the number of continuities thrown into there, the mane 6's goals being a call back to 'The Ticket Master', Rainbow Dash saving the Wonderbolts back in 'Sonic Rainboom', the dresses Rarity made for her friends in 'Suited For Success'. Continuities... are... EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!!!! (Also, you cannot look at the entire episode and say that you cannot see the Cinderella refrences)

Like I said before, there's little to dislike in the episode. In fact, most of the negatives in the episode I can find actually strengthened the episode. Prince Blueblood was snobby and entitled, but I'd say that just made Rarity's outburst towards him all the better. The Wonderbolts were a bit ignorant of Rainbow even though they asked her to hang out with them, but let's be honest, they're national heroes and celebrities who most likely have a lot of stuff planned out for them, so it wouldn't be surprising that they have very little time for Rainbow, even after her attempts to get their attention. Finally, Fluttershy was oddly mean-spirited about being friends with the garden animals, but I'd attribute that to the animals' instincts being triggered by fear, plus Fluttershy acting wild is always fun to watch.

Great plot, great moral, great episode, it does a great job as a season 1 finale. No one was acting or doing something that would make me cringe or hate about the episode. (maybe Fluttershy's odd behavior, but it barely does any bad the episode as a whole) I can definitely imagine this episode being on a lot of people's top 10 season 1 episodes.

Looking back at this episode, I can safely say that this was a super strong way to wrap up the season. It's a clear cut lesson for everyone about expectations. We all have them, and because we as humans aren't perfect, it won't always go the way we want. The montage during The Pony Pokey is a really great example. You cannot forget about the masterpiece that is "At The Gala", gah I'd say that's the #1 song of Season 1.

this shows everyone's crazy side... even Celestia is a bit coo coo and bored out of her mind if this amused her.
