Friendship is Card Games: Putting Your Hoof Down · 11:39am Jul 19th, 2015

The midseason hiatus has begun, and so I turn back the clock to the oldest episode I haven’t done yet in this, my 250th blog. As a reminder, everything else can be accessed from the FiCG index page, which is always available from my user page. Now, let’s get assertive

This week, we turn to the last one-shot issues of the IDW comic. The final three will draw Season 10 to a close. Let’s see if the prelude goes out on a high note.

Friendship is Card Games: Cosmos, Part 1 · 12:31pm Dec 22nd, 2019

This week, we begin our look into a grand epic of madness, mayhem, and historical revisionism. And I do mean “begin.” With no more seasons to pad things out, Achilles is in danger of overtaking the tortoise, and a four-part—technically five-part; #75’s double-sized—series with Andy Price’s art definitely has enough material for two blogs. Let’s start stargazing.

Friendship is Card Games: Rarity Investigates! · 12:22pm Sep 20th, 2015

The rain hissed down like a nest of snakes, a good match for this city. The only ponies you can trust here are the ones who’ve helped you fire rainbow friendship lasers, and Celestia knows those are few and far between. This is a dirty city, and there’s a mare here who has a thing about cleanliness. She’s trouble, but all dames are. Let’s investigate.

Friendship is Card Games: Ponyville Confidential · 12:28pm Aug 9th, 2015

It’s my 100,000,000th blog post! … in base 2. But this episode is still rather special to me. It isn’t just the one that gave us Cakelestia and proof that Equestria has no libel laws. It’s also the source of one of my first attempts at a non-crossover story. Let’s open up this issue.

Friendship is Card Games: MMMystery on the Friendship Express · 10:27am Aug 16th, 2015

The references. Good God, the references. Agatha Christie, Ian Fleming, Arthur Conan Doyle... Is it any wonder I've cast Pinkie as Discord's mother?

Friendship is Card Games: Owl's Well That Ends Well · 1:39pm Oct 19th, 2014

When I first watched this episode, as the credits ran, I found myself confused. It took me a moment to figure out why: I didn't like it. It's a plot that hinges on a lack of communication, Twilight making unfounded assumptions about someone she's known for his entire life, and tearing down established characters to make the new guy look good.

Friendship is Card Games: Accord · 11:23am Jun 24th, 2018

We return to the comics with a bang. Indeed, it’s the bang I was hoping to end the pre-Season 8 blogs on, but the timing didn’t pan out. In any case, the local answer to Sheogorath seems to be having a problem with his Jyggalag. Let’s see how that pans out.

And we’re back to the comics, just in time for two tales of earth pony siblings. Let’s see what family matters will blossom in these full houses.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Friendship is Card Games: Bookworm Storyline · 12:50pm Nov 27th, 2016

This week, we have an untitled exploration of metafiction. Seriously, even the FiM wiki doesn’t have a title for these issues, so a placeholder it is. Maybe the bookworm ate it. Appropriate for Thanksgiving weekend. Let’s dig in to the rest before the antagonist does.

Friendship is Card Games: A Canterlot Wedding · 2:01pm Aug 23rd, 2015

Oh boy. This one. No episode can compare when it comes giving me mixed feelings. I won’t air the longer years-old grievances unless someone actually wants to hear them, but in my book, this is the iffiest finale. Let’s take a closer look.

Friendship is Card Games: Keep Calm and Flutter On · 12:08pm Jun 7th, 2015

While the “Slice of Life” previews are only building in their ridiculous glory, the episode itself still won’t air for another week. As such, and as per your requests, I’m looking at one of the more ridiculous moments of the past, Operation: Chaos Butterfly. (Or, as it’s known outside of Equestrian black ops, Fluttershy starting Discord on the path of redemption.)

I’m sure you’ve all been inundated with opinions by this point, but I keep to a schedule. In any case, it is at last time for M. A. Larson’s bizarre thank you to us for helping make this the longest running twenty-two-minute toy commercial in television history.
