The show is absolutely fantastic! I really do wonder how far the fandom could go if it wasn't for Hasbro doing the Hasbro things it does. But, nonetheless, still one of my favorite shows!

(I'm really just glad I'm not the only brony here XD)

Thoughts on For Whom The Sweetie Belle Toils.

This episode sounded very similar to Sleepless In Ponyville, but even though it's not quite as good, (Though that's one tough act to follow) it was still an enjoyable and very cute episode.

Sweetie Belle is definitely like her sister, and this was the closest she got to having a Rarity-like tantrum yet, which was great fun to see. I always like to see Luna, the best alicorn in the show, and just like Meghan McCarthy promised, the dream sequences were amazing. All-in all, a very good episode.

So next week's episode is the one where Flim and Flam come back. Who wants to bet that they give Applejack her key?

Thoughts on Leap of Faith.

A pretty boring episode. Normally, I don't mind when the stories are predictable, but when you can tell exactly what's going to happen right from the beginning, it completely sucks all the fun out. At least Flim & Flam's service was actually a con this time, it didn't make any sense last time when their machine was better at collecting apples than the Apple family were.

All right episode, but I don't think they handled the Flim Flam Brothers' return very well. Everypony in Ponyville completely bought into their scheme, as if they all had a case of mass amnesia and forgot what happened in Super Cider Squeezy 6000. I did like how manipulative Flim and Flam were, though. First they convince Applejack that their tonic actually was working, and then they use her word to help sell more of the tonic.

And unsurprisingly, Applejack did get her key this episode. Now only Twilight's is left.

At least Flim & Flam's service was actually a con this time, it didn't make any sense last time when their machine was better at collecting apples than the Apple family were.
It kind of was a con in a way, because they were selling a shoddier product.

Thoughts on Testing, Testing 1, 2, 3.

When I saw that preview, I had a really bad feeling about this episode, I thought this was going to feature a lot of Pinkie at her most annoying, (rather than funny-annoying, like she should be) but it was nothing of the sort, it was a pretty nice episode.

It took longer than it should have to get started, but I thought the lesson that there's more than one way to learn was one of the best the show has ever had. It might not have been the most riveting or funny episode, but that's enough for me to give it good marks. I also love the reference to Firefly as a great hero from (current) Equestria's history.

This definitely goes down as one of my favourite episodes.

  • Twilight's back to being her nerdy self, we haven't seen that in a while.
  • She's also using her teleportation magic a lot more, which is nice.
  • RD, Spike and Owlowiscious making that little tune behind Twilight's back was adorable.
  • Pinkie's rap was amazing. Very funny and very 90's.
  • The lesson that everybody has different ways of learning was quite good, and not something that is touched upon by cartoons very often.
  • All the continuity and call backs were great. RD pointing out Twilight's tallness, her mention of Twilight's "freakout aria" from The Crystal Empire, Twilight bringing up RD's fondness for Daring Do books. All of it was great.

Thoughts on Trade Ya.

It might not have been spectacular or dramatic or anything, (Though Rainbow Dash nearly gave Fluttershy away! How could you, Dash!?) but this was a very enjoyable slice of life episode. I always love watching Rarity and Applejack clash, and it was nice to see Twilight and Pinkie get along for once, I usually get the feeling they don't even like each other.

Okay, I'm worded that wrong. Pinkie definitely likes Twilight, but I get the feeling Twilight finds Pinkie's hyperactivity annoying, (Although to be fair, it can be from time to time) and then there was the Feeling Pinkie Keen episode where Twilight seemed so determined to prove Pinkie wrong, (And getting so angry at her, she turned into a Rapidash) and in Baby Cakes, Twilight was very condescending towards Pinkie, thinking she wasn't capable of looking after the babies.

Well, I think most of the Mane Six find her annoying at times, not just Twilight. But I wouldn't say she doesn't seem to like her. That would mean Rarity and Apple Jack damn near hate each other with all the fighting they do. RD acts like any of them could be annoying depending on the day. I guess I'm just saying, they all fight at times, but I've never gotten the feeling, personally, that any of them truly disliked another. Annoying, I can agree with, though.

Thoughts on Inspiration Manifestation.

Man, there sure are a lot of evil magical items that corrupt their users in Equestria. Celestia needs to think of a way to get rid of them all ASAP.

Fantastic episode, it's about time there was another Rarity x Spike episode, they are so cute together, and this was just as entertaining as I was hoping. As mean as it sounds, Rarity's always so much fun when she's stressed and hysterical, and the Inspiration Manifestation spell was a great way to take advantage of that.

I liked the recent episode but I can see that some are upset by the lack of the Equestria Games. In rebuttal, it wasn't really meant to focus on the games themselves. It was about Spike who got a good story out of it (two good Spike stories in a row? By god, Tartarus must've frozen over). Even then, what kind of story would we've gotten? A story where cheaters cheat but are soon found out? A few events that resemble the olympics in our world but nothing much in terms of characters?

To put it bluntly, the thing about the writers:




That is to say, sure it's not wrong to want to see more of the Games (it might've been cool)... BUT you don't really have a say in how it's shown or the story that's told. In the end, we did get a good Spike episode after he's been treated unfairly during the Season. I'd say he deserved it.

For my further thought, this post here will speak for me.
