Okay, it's been worth it · 12:52am Mar 9th, 2019

Have you guys been keeping up with the recent EQG shorts? I haven't had much to say about them because they've been... kinda dumb, mostly? But they seem to be getting better and better. With "Best in Show" promising continuity, I was actually looking forward to the next one, and...

Well, just look at the blog title. You can watch it below.

EQG: Better Together · 11:44pm Mar 17th, 2019

Haven't been talking about the shorts lately, but these three came out with a shared title, so I guess that's worth a blog? Links are here.

Human Gaiety 2: Anthropic Boogaloo · 3:15pm Nov 5th, 2017

Just an FYI, three more shorts have gone up on Discovery Family's site. There will be forty-five of them in total, so I'm going to let them keep accumulating for a bit more before making plans for review blogs. This one will be interesting. Five seems too few and nine too many, so I'm not yet sure what I'll do.

Also, for those looking for this batch, be advised that one of them is the Timberlight short.

Mini-reactions and links to the videos follow, as do potential spoilers:

Human Gaiety · 11:27pm Nov 2nd, 2017

For those who don't look at Derpibooru four or five times an hour, the next batch of Equestria Girls shorts have begun dropping. You can see them all through links below. (And for those wondering, I'm going to let them accumulate a bit more before doing full reviews and card blogs. Besides, I have the ones from a few months ago to cover first.)

That said, a few quick thoughts:

Human Gaiety 3: Human Gaily with a Vengeance · 11:00pm Nov 8th, 2017

Yup, more of these, which didn't even have the decency to wait until I got back from work to come out. At this rate, I expect we'll see the entire collection before the year is out. More somewhat spoilery mini-reactions below.

What you should do before season 9 · 9:52pm Mar 8th, 2019

Make sure you've watched all the material that's out there. It's not just the show, you know? I just found out that I haven't watched these yet:

I'm not that big on Equestria Girls, but that show also has its merits.

Overwhelming Horses · 6:31pm Mar 25th, 2018

Well, that's not entirely accurate; the issue's with the technicolor humanoids, but the pun was too good to pass up.

In any case, Hasbro saw fit to unveil no fewer than seven EqG shorts on the day of the Season 8 premiere, on top of the two that trickled out recently. Unfortunately, I can't do a timely review of those shorts since, well, Season 8 premiered. At least I'm set for a week should we get an intraseasonal hiatus.

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: 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: 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.

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.

Another week’s worth of EqG shorts to look into, and this week, it’s all about that music festival we’ll be hearing more about in two weeks (assuming you haven’t already watched that special, because American release times are just a suggestion.) Let’s tune in.

Friendship is Card Games: Better Together, Part 4 · 12:13pm Mar 11th, 2018

Two bits of breaking news to take into account. Firstly, another round of Better Together shorts just came out on Discovery Family’s app, and an enterprising soul already has them on Dailymotion. That means it’s time for another round of human shenanigans, with the animators taking full advantage of those swimsuits they made for “Forgotten Friendship.”

Summertime shorts · 5:31am Aug 3rd, 2017

I just watched ALL the Equestria Girls Summertime shorts, most were BEFORE the events of the first movie or slightly after. Unfortunately Sunset is not in ANY of them, she isn't even in the background except photos. Also Sci-Twi makes Spike a girlfriend and has pics of Timber all over her lab.

Its official they are phasing Sunset out.

Also my fan is better but not my screen its gotten worse.

Friendship is Card Games: Assorted Shorts, Part 1 · 12:58pm Feb 10th, 2019

We interrupt your regularly scheduled ancient legends to look into something a bit more contemporary. Namely, the latest batch of YouTube shorts… most of which are EweTube shorts. Let’s just hope the next one isn’t a live reaction of My Tiny Gecko or the whole franchise might slip into the collective unconscious.
