    Season Eight Episode Reviews: Molt Down

    This week is a Spike episode? What a re-”molt”-ing development this is!

    Let's look at “Molt Down,” the episode that will surely be perfectly normal and have no long-lasting repercussions on a character's appearance.

    Season Eight Episode Reviews: Break Up Break Down

    I dread going into this week's episode. For today, we discuss matters of the heart. Romance, love, heartbreak, and all that rot. Which means we run right into the most loathsome of all fandom constructs, the kind of thing that destroys friendships and leaves the most brilliant of minds curled up helplessly in a corner, foaming from the mouth:

    SHIPPING.

    Season Eight Episode Reviews: Non-Compete Clause

    We've had a string of good episodes the last few weeks. Whether it be shapeshifting seaponies, an actual Celestia episode, or discovering Starlight's dark phase, we've had lots of fun and plenty of laughs.

    Today's episode is about Applejack and Rainbow Dash competing.

    The good times are over.

    Season Eight Episode Reviews: Horse Play

    So hey, it's a new episode. Surely nothing to be excited about. Just another standard episode of a cartoon pony show.

    Only it's a CELESTIA EPISODE!

    Prepare for extra spicy biased scoring as we look at Best Princess' newest episode, “Horse Play!”

Comic Review Master List · 4:52am Jul 22nd, 2015

About time I got this up.

Below, you will find a compilation of all the reviews I've done for IDW's FiM comics. While I used to review every issue when it came out, I'm now only going to review an issue if I feel like it. Nevertheless, I've gathered all of my incorrect opinions together. And if you want a quick reminder of what issues or arcs I recommend, I've even ripped off a much better Internet reviewer for your pleasure.

Also note that many of these reviews are old, and do not reflect my current opinion of individual issues. (Especially the Rainbow Dash micro. I was in a very forgiving mood when I wrote that review.) Some have gone up in my estimation, and a couple have gone down. The recommendations below are a reflection of how I present feel.

Civil War? What, is there an Element Registration Act or something?

Ah, thank you very much for putting these in one place.

I recently realize that probably the best place to find a multitude of opinions on each issue is to just go to the equestria daily post associated with the release of each issue.

:o
I notice that the main comics just keep sliding downward...

Pretty solid list. Though I'd have to say Pinkie and Luna comic was more 'meh' overall, though had one of the nicest friendship lessons between two characters in the FF comics, I think. Plus the art was pretty nice so totally a Recommended at least.

Loved the reviews. I'd not have the patience for many of those issues, let alone make a habit of reviewing a comic series I barely pay attention to anymore. Great job on the reviews and hope you keep at it!

Pony Civil War? Well...if it's bad, I won't buy it, but maybe I'll catch it over on /mlp/ sometime...

3259932

That was the only name I could think for it. Basically, Twilight leaves town for five minutes and Ponyville goes to war over who should get a plaque calling them the "First Family in Ponyville:" the Apples or the Riches. Rarity betrays Applejack out of greed, Rainbow Dash sides with the Riches because Applejack treats her like crap, everything ends in a big fight, and Twilight had to save the town with one of the most basic of kid show cliches.

It's bad, is all I'm saying.

I'm still bitter over the RD Micro
