    Rock Solid Frienship review

    Hello there. Sorry I haven't uploaded a review of last week's episode but schoolwork has been pretty heavy for me this last week and I just couldn't justify writing it when I have lab reports, GIS projects, and an Econ exam to study for. I will re-watch the episode tomorrow and then write my review for it, so please come back tomorrow to read my thoughts on episode 3. For now, let's take a look

    All Bottled Up review

    Hello there. Here is part two of my reviews of the new season. This time Twilight and the gang go on a "friendship retreat" to Manehatten and Starlight and Trixie stay behind to teach Trixie new magic. I enjoy the Trixie episodes mostly because she is such a complete foil to Twilight that I can't help but find her fun. My thoughts on the episode below.

    Celestial Advice review

    Hello there. I've decided to continue my reviews of the episodes that I started doing last year and now we have brand new episodes! :pinkiehappy: This is an interesting review because, as you probably already know, there was no two-parter this season, but two standalone episodes.

Hello there. Here is part two of my reviews of the new season. This time Twilight and the gang go on a "friendship retreat" to Manehatten and Starlight and Trixie stay behind to teach Trixie new magic. I enjoy the Trixie episodes mostly because she is such a complete foil to Twilight that I can't help but find her fun. My thoughts on the episode below.



This was a pretty good episode. Like I said, I really enjoy Trixie due to her being such a great foil to Twilight and her relationship with Starlight is one of the most dynamic in the series. It was nice to see Starlight take on a more teacher role with teaching Trixie disappearing teleportation magic and her annoyance at what are basically Trixie's main character traits. Trixie always just jumps in without thinking and always acts like a perfect little angel (even when she's causing no end of trouble for Starlight). This led Starlight to start bottling up her anger at Trixie, which obviously didn't work out so well for her, and led into the moral of the story: Don't just assume people know what they are doing that is annoying you. Talk to them and don't let it build up inside until you blow like Yellowstone (I'm a Geology major and I had to tie it into my review somehow). be more like Mauna Loa and let it out slowly.

The only issues I had with this episode was with Twilight and her friends. They seemed to just be there to provide a song for the episode to stretch the run time to 30 minutes. The song was okay for what it was, but I knew as soon as they started to sing, they weren't going to beat the record. I also knew as soon as Starlight said "sing a song" earlier in the episode that they were going to sing a song at some point. I did enjoy the escape room that they had to work through. It was much more entertaining than the SAW movies, with basically the same story, but I just feel it was there for padding. Another issue I had was the end line where Trixie says that if they didn't break the rules, how could they have fun? I'm hoping this doesn't become a one trick pony (no pun intended... Okay, maybe a little) with Trixie and Starlight where the same thing keeps happening. Overall, I enjoyed this episode and look forward to seeing more adventures with Starlight and Trixie, as long as it goes in new directions. Next time, we're in for a Flurry.
