Double nosehole helps with breathing, but kink flank is ouch

Rewatched S02E18 - A Friend In Deed and noticed those two. I rarely rewatch old eps, but a major life crisis makes me do all kinds of odd things. … Like reading a book!!! O_o …  I am flummoxed.

I... Really... Kind of...

Hated this episode...
This might be the first Episode that I REALLY wanted to give a 1 to.. But I didn't I gave it a 2 instead. Simply put, Pinkie was annoying. And a kind of annoying that I really don't like.

See the thing is.. I'm a cranky spiky curmudgeon myself. And I have a best friend who MIGHT just have the bad habit of not taking no thank you for a answer. And I MIGHT go a bit over board in telling him no on the third or so try. Me: "You want some of this?" Me: "No. But thank you." Him: "You sure?" Me: "Yes...." Him: "Positive?" Me: "&$#@ off Chris.."

And the thing is I do that because I know he will literally just badger me until I say yes unless I'm rude to him. And then I FEEL BAD for yelling at him.

And that's the thing. People who wont take no for a answer in helping you. Most of the time, they want to help you so they feel like a good person or a good friend.. Which in a odd way makes them REALLY selfish

And on top of that, this Episode doesn't even address this. When Pinkie helps Cranky with his life long quest, she's not proving she's a good pony. We already knew that. But before that, when she's just trying to badger him into being her friend, she's being super selfish.

 

There is a big difference between my friend helping me achive a life long goal even if I say "Nah, that's never gonna happen, It was just a dream and I give up."

And my friend badgering me into doing something I actually don't want to do. And that's what pinkie was doing at first.

 

I would actually like to see a episode where pinkie learned to take no for a answer.. That would be a interesting episode.... This however was not.

-------------------------

Notes.

-Smile Song: Best part of this episode.

-Cranky: I love the voice work for this character. (Even if it was REALLY close to Richard Newman's role in Inuyasha)

P.S.

This episode needed more princesses in it....

I didn't like this episode, at all. Pinkie was annoying. The Smile Song is the only redeeming value of this episode. But, what does the Smile Song have to do with the episode except for filler? 

1/5 Bad Episode.

I should actually hate this Episode, because its Pinkie Pie centered and i do hate some things, like the fact that she puts her nose into private documents for example or that she is annyoing as usual, but it was entertaining. The german Version of the Smile Song wasnt that good, but it was funny at many parts. Maybe my hate towards Pinkie kinda vanishes over time or i just get used to her more, i dont know. Maybe its because she does a good Job with the 2 Babys and shows that she can actually do hard work and not just jump around and annoy Ponys. XD

Pure Pinkie Pie injected directly to the veins. Personally, I prefer my Pinkie Pie slightly diluted, as her lack of boundaries is something I feel I'd be bothered by in real life, but she's just so happy and enthusiastic and well-meaning that I find her irresistibly charming. Plus, when you start out with the best song in the entire series, I can forgive Pinkie's total obliviousness to what she's doing wrong, at least to an extent. Just when I start to get impatient with it, though, that adorable ending comes in and makes up for it, and Pinkie learns not to invade others' privacy, so I guess it's all good. Also, is this the first time a different song plays over the credits? 

Score:

Entertainment: 8/10

Characters: 8/10

Themes: 9/10

Story: 7/10

Overall: 80/100

As annoying as Pinkie Pie was to Cranky, I still enjoyed this episode. His initial backhanded compliment, “You’re smarter than you look,” doesn’t do him any favors.

I enjoyed the toupee scene because Pinkie herself told the others it wasn’t funny. She was just trying to help. That second toupee was awful though.

Pinkie does need to learn to take no for an answer though.

Poor Cranky. It seems like he wasted much of his life. Matilda appeared to have had least lived happily until their reunion. I get the impression that he just became more and more bitter.

This is the first bad episode of season 2 for me. Pinkie is so annoying and she gets rewarded for stalking Cranky. The song is great and Cranky's backstory is sweet, but Pinkie just ruins the episode.

Score: 3/10

There are a lot of things to appreciate about this episode. The song is amazing, many of the jokes are funny, and Cranky is a good character. His backstory is sweet. But the moral is really bad. Pinkie should've realized that not everyone wants to be her friend. That would've been a good message, but instead Pinkie bothers Cranky, goes through his stuff without permission, is generally a nuisance, but she's rewarded just because she does one nice thing. Everything she did before is forgotten. That is just not acceptable to teach to kids and it ruins the episode. 

Score: 3/10

This is how Pinkie being annoying should always be portrayed. Her voice is tolerable, she's not insanely over the top, and she learns her lesson. Speaking of which, the moral isn't as bad as I remember it being. Pinkie apologizes for being so annoying the Cranky and makes up for it. She isn't rewarded just for doing one nice thing, she's rewarded because she realizes what she was doing was wrong and learns to not be so invasive. 

The rest of the episode is pretty good. The song is great of course, but aside from that Pinkie is generally fun to watch and there's a good sprinkling of jokes.

Score: 7/10
