Episode review: Episode #19, Season 7 "It Isn't the Mane Thing About You" · 11:07pm Sep 18th, 2017

I know this may seem odd at the time that I release this, but I can't access the website so I can do a review of this episode on there, so it's time to use my FIMFiction account for something other than working on a story and rants occasionally!

So for the people who don't normally read my reviews, here's how it works: I first watch the episode and before all of my reviews I explain what set up the plot just to get an idea of how it is and then I give my review of the entire episode.

In Hindsight: Season 4 · 2:39am Mar 15th, 2019

Going back and watching seasons four seasons later has kind of become my Thing sinceā€¦ oh, about four seasons now. :B So, this post covers season four, with reflections and observations I make about each episode when and where I can.

23 Skiddoo! [episode spoilers] · 5:12pm Nov 14th, 2015

Man, I just can't think of anything to say about last week's episode. The opening was great, the rest was just eh. I wish it had been a bit more "Discord thinks Twilight's life is too organized (i.e., the opposite of chaotic) and wants to punish her for it". Instead, it's really tedious, and I don't know if that's better or worse than an episode that makes me cringe or gets me upset. I guess it's got a message about how memes wear thin after a while? Except Bob Ross! :V

Scare Master Review · 5:04pm Oct 31st, 2015

Well, you know what today is, right?

And to celebrate, we've got a Halloween themed episode. The third such episode of the whole series (fourth if you count "Castle Mane-ia"). Before we go any further, yes, I know this episode was leaked in advance. But I always prefer to wait and watch episodes when they air if I can help it.

What About Discord? Review · 7:31pm Nov 7th, 2015

Well, it's time for another Discord episode, and the synopsis had me dreading what they were going to do. Since Season 4, I feel like Discord has become something that the writers don't know how to handle. They realize he's reformed, but they keep trying to play up that he's a trickster, and the results are usually less than satisfactory. And it would seem that Neal Duseadu, the same guy who penned "Princess Spike" with help from Jim and Jayson is in the writer's seat all on his

Why Hurricane Fluttershy breaks my heart · 12:54am Sep 7th, 2015

I really don't want to blog about every single time I go back to rewatch season 2, yet in sticking with "only when I notice something new", I find myself doing so anyway. Well, so far. Today, I watched three episodes.

The Cart Before The Ponies Review · 4:55pm Aug 6th, 2016

Ah kart racing, one of the most popular and iconic video game racing genres of all time. Heck, during the mid to late 90's almost every major video game mascot was trying desperately to cash in on "Mario Kart" fever. But we're not here to talk about video games, we're here to review an episode. Ed Valentine made his return today, and you may remember him from such episodes as "Flight to The Finish" (which was good for the most part, but had pre-reformed Diamond Tiara at her

"There's One Brony, There Could Be Others" [episode spoilers!] · 4:29pm Aug 20th, 2016

I get why some people are mad over The Cart Before the Ponies, but I can't see the hate for 28 Pranks Later. That one's just so fun! Plus, you've got this hierarchy:

The Mysterious Mare-Do-Well; The mane cast teach Rainbow Dash not to wrong others by committing the same wrong and then wronging her the same way.

Spice Up Your Life S6E12 Recap · 4:04pm Jun 11th, 2016

Pony is at its best when it does new and creative things. And its often as its worst when it falls onto predictable stock plots.

Satan's Game [episode spoilers!] · 4:02pm Aug 27th, 2016

Reading the past week's analysis journals has led me to realize that I was mostly caught up in the "Oh my god, actually changelings!" hype with the last episode and that, no, it doesn't work out that well. As a story about Spike dealing with his celebrity status, it works well enough; it's certainly better than most Spike episode in portraying him, and I'll say the new writers did a better job with the characters than a lot of other new writers this season ("pen pal quill set", anyone?) But the

Dungeons and Discord Review · 5:31pm Aug 27th, 2016

A Discord episode? Well, his track record has been kind of hit and miss over the past two seasons. Perhaps that's why he's being paired up with Spike and Big Macintosh for this episode. Nick Confalone has returned to write this episode, he previously broke new ground with "No Second Prances" and "The Saddle Row Review", both of which saw him tackle a character in a lead role he hadn't handled before, this time he's taking a crack at writing Discord. Was Nick able to do a good

Time for the Nursing Home, Rarity [episode spoilers!] · 7:02pm May 6th, 2017

For those of you just now watching Fluttershy Leans In, I apologize. Foremost because it's a shitty episode and you had to watch it, but moreso because I'm going to talk about it up above the page-break, and "next week's" episode down below. You had your chance! >:B

One complaint I've had about this episode since I first watched it (oh god, I've seen it three times and it's so bad D:) is that it seemed pointless. "Fluttershy yells at experts" just... what was going on here?

She's Everything Inside of You That You Wish You Could Be [episode spoilers!] · 3:58pm May 20th, 2017

At this point, I am not even pretending I'm trying to keep to any kind of schedule. I've been friending all week, had no time to watch anything, who cares, it's all Canada's fault.

So yeah, for those keeping track, this one's about the Celestia/Luna episode. That I tried reallly hard not to get excited about when the synopsis was revealed, because Starlight Glimmer. :B

Unicorn Drivers, No Survivors [episode spoilers!] · 6:28pm Apr 22nd, 2017

Just a quick reminder, I no longer can watch pony on TV, so instead of my usual "re-reaction to previous episodes" intro to these posts, I am posting in the middle of the week. Look for blogs titled "Pipe Land" to see what I think of episodes on a second watch-through! (Spoilers: that one, at least, is more positive than my original first take on either!)

Hard To Say Anything Review · 4:57pm May 27th, 2017

If you can believe it, this is actually the first episode of the entire show to not only have none of the mane six, but also not have any of their voice actresses in any way, shape, or form (the closest we came to this before was "Hearts and Hooves Day", "On Your Marks", and "The Fault in Our Cutie Marks"). And fittingly enough, it's a Cutie Mark Crusaders episode with Big Macintosh in the spotlight. After the impressive development he got in Season 5, I was disappointed to see
