We’re not quite through with the Better Together backlog yet. This week, we’ll be looking at the shorts’ school play storyline from start to finish. Places, people!

Friendship is Card Games: Apinkalypse Now and The Vines That Bind · 12:25pm Dec 2nd, 2018

This week, we have consecutive single-issue Season 7 follow-ups, one of which I have been very eagerly anticipating.

Friendship is Card Games: It Isn't the Mane Thing About You · 11:35am Sep 17th, 2017

This week we have the grand return
Of one whose presence long I’ve yearned.
Zecora’s here to speak in rhyme
Though Rarity’s the star this time.

Friendship is Card Games: Marks and Recreation · 11:55am Oct 1st, 2017

One week away from the movie premiere. That’s going to be an interesting weekend to manage…

Eh, that’s future FoME’s problem. For now, the Crusaders get to meet their greatest nemesis yet and I wish I’d ever seen Parks and Recreation so I could do an on-theme intro gag.

Friendship is Card Games: 2014 Annual: Power Ponies · 1:19pm Dec 31st, 2017

New Year’s Eve. When better to do an annual? Though Free Comic Book Day would also be suitable with this one, but I don’t have nearly enough comics in reserve to delay it that long. So, let’s look at what the Power Ponies are like when they aren’t the Mane Six.

Friendship is Card Games: Better Together, Part 1 · 12:34pm Nov 19th, 2017

Well, that’s what the Discovery Family site’s calling it. Though to my surprise, they've manage to contain themselves enough to stop posting the videos there after putting up a quarter of them over the course of a week. That means I only have enough material for one of these before returning to the comics next week with a long-overdue look at the 2013 annual now that I actually have a copy. (Thanks again, princeps!)

Friendship is Card Games: Discordant Harmony · 11:13am Jul 30th, 2017

I know I said I wouldn’t review these episodes until they aired in the States, but that was before I learned that Discovery Family plans on reopening the season with another double feature on the fifth. I really don’t like doing multiple episodes per blog. Doing so dilutes the attention either gets and keeps me from exploring their deeper design potential. For those of you still gamely avoiding spoilers (and best of luck to you,) I’ll say no more here and link back to this blog next week.

Friendship is Card Games: Horse Play · 11:45am Apr 29th, 2018

She governs one of the most powerful nations in the world. She ensures the continued survival of the entire planet. She has thwarted some of the greatest mages and monstrosities in the world.

But can she act?

Friendship is Card Games: Better Together, Part 5 · 10:52am Jun 17th, 2018

We may be in an intraseasonal hiatus, but there’s still a week’s worth of animation for me to review before going back to the comics. The Equestria Girls shorts never stopped being a thing. Indeed, they’ve been a thing for long enough that even Hasbro’s sluggish YouTube release schedule has almost caught up to this article. Let’s get started.

Friendship is Card Games: Surf and/or Turf · 10:55am Apr 22nd, 2018

After the Dominaria prerelease, it feels appropriate to have an episode focused on people returning home after a long absence. Of course, not everyone has that same sense of history and nostalgia. Let’s see how this pans out, and hope there’s nothing that anyone can peg on Belzenlok, King of Storms, Spirit of Chaos, Enslaver of the North, etc.

Friendship is Card Games: The Break Up Break Down · 11:53am May 20th, 2018

Appropriately enough for an episode with a B plot, this week is an FiCG double feature! Click here for the previous installment, a card blog featuring concepts from the Triptych Continuum. Or read on for further exploration of the SS Sugarmac

Friendship is Card Games: For the Pony Who Has Everything and Friends Forever #32 · 10:55am Jul 15th, 2018

Be advised, there may be a new episode coming this Friday at 2 PM. It’s clear that Discovery Family’s “Summer Surprises” is code for “lol what’s regular, predictable scheduling.” On a similar note, today’s comic took me off-guard during my scheduling.

And so, finally, I can try to get this episode reviewed. Let’s hope the new laptop’s motherboard doesn’t also go the way of the Apple parents.

Friendship is Card Games: Better Together, Part 2 · 12:25pm Jan 21st, 2018

We interrupt my Zeno-Achillean efforts to catch up to IDW’s tortoise to take a look at some of the Equestria Girls shorts that have gone up recently. I held back on these because I like being able to provide links to the source material for those who haven’t seen them, and Hasbro has been slow-rolling the YouTube releases to get more people on the Discovery GO app. Thank goodness for Dailymotion.

Friendship is Card Games: Micro-Series and Friends Forever #1 · 12:06pm Jul 17th, 2016

Hello, all. I'm deviating from the main series this week to at least start the other comic lines; the first issues of both the single-character-focused micro-series and the two-character-focused Friends Forever line. Let's see where this takes us.

Friendship is Card Games: School Daze · 10:53am Mar 25th, 2018

And so we begin anew, with perhaps the greatest, most insidious evil the Mane Six have ever confronted: Educational bureaucracy.

I’m not being sarcastic. I could tell you stories there.

Friendship is Card Games: Best Gift Ever · 11:18am Oct 28th, 2018

Happy Christmaween! (Nightmare Warming? Sounds like psychotropic climate change.) I though this was going to be the “ia” of Season 8’s “Welcome Princess Celest,” but it’s a full-fledged hour-long special. Let’s dig into the out-of-seasonal cheer.

Friendship is Card Games: The Magic Apple and EXTREME BINGO! · 11:10am Jul 21st, 2019

Would you look at that. We’re actually getting some comics in this hiatus. Only one blog’s worth, since there’s an EqG special airing next week, but we still have time to look into Pinkie and Rainbow Dash wreaking havoc in their own particular ways, along with Toni “Pencils” Kuusito’s premiere as an official comic artist.

Friendship is Card Games: Boast Busters · 5:22pm Jun 8th, 2014

Sorry for the slight delay; I didn't have the time to prepare this batch ahead of time.

Seeing this episode again brought a lot of interesting information to light. For example, when Applejack was showing her lasso skills, where exactly was that apple tree? Also, Rarity speaks in the third pony immediately before the famous "It. Is. On." I'm not sure if she was subtly mocking Trixie, or if that's just a unicorn thing.
