Friendship is Magic first impressions review: Filly Forever (s07e06)
by Obake

(SPOILERS!)

Friendship is Magic has changed a lot. Characters have garnered new roles (student to princess, as one example), acquired new abilities, suffered loss (the Golden Oaks Library, the closest to an actual death in the show), and what every living being goes through:growing up.

Hard to Say Anything · 2:28am May 14th, 2017

Friendship is Magic first impressions review: Hard to Say Anything (s07e08)
by Obake

(SPOILERS!)

*Note: the video I watched the episode from had questionable sound quality, so I will reevaluate my criticisms on the songs when I find a better version.

This episode is a disaster, and not just because of the leery Justin Bieber pony.

Not Asking For Trouble · 2:19am May 22nd, 2017

Friendship is Magic first impressions review: Not Asking for Trouble (s07e10)
by Obake

(SPOILERS!)

There's not a lot of substance to this one, so a review will be brief. Pinkie visits the yaks during Yakslubert Fest (I hope I spelled that right), a sacred holiday. The day consist of smashing logs, swaying to music, and sleeping.

School Daze · 1:10am Mar 25th, 2018

Friendship is Magic first impressions review: School Daze (s08e01-02)
by Obake

I'm not exactly sure what message School Daze is attempting to get across. That western educational systems are outdated, and insufficient? I agree there plenty of problems with the current system, but the episode never conveys any real issue with how Equestrians handle it.

First impressions review of MLP:FiM season 7, episodes 1 and 2
By Obake

(SPOILERS!)

On this special edition of first impression reviews, we have two regular episodes in one! Given the show's shaky track record with two-part specials, perhaps the staff chose toning down to make things easier. Given the upcoming movie, it would only make sense.

But the two episodes they start with are, uh...strange. How else to describe them? I'm going to break these into mini reviews.

Friendship is Magic first impressions review: Parental Glideance (s07e07)
by Obake

(SPOILERS!)

I'm torn on this one. There are a lot of admirable things about the episode, and I had fun watching it. But some portions were overplayed and the last third felt bungled, save for the very end.

Fluttershy Leans In · 2:20am May 22nd, 2017

Friendship is Magic first impressions review: Fluttershy Leans In (s07e05)
Obake

Note: this episode was leaked, so I watched it early in fear Hasbro would be more vigorous in taking down uploads. Hopefully they keep the uploads that appear this Saturday up. Also, I wanted extra time to finish another pony episode review, and plan on posting it this weekend as a bonus. Enjoy. :twilightsmile:

Rock Solid Friendship · 9:39pm Apr 29th, 2017

Friendship is Magic first impressions review: Rock Solid Friendship (s07e04)
By Obake

(SPOILERS!)

Coming off of last week's surprisingly good babysitting episode is a surprisingly bad Maud episode. I've always had a soft spot for Maud Pie, Pinkie's less-than-exuberant sister. Even if her schtick of being obsessed with rocks wears thin, episodes usually give her something to work with. Not much here, unfortunately.

The map calls the Crusaders and Twilight to Mount Aris, where half of the seapony population now live as regular hippogriffs. The other half still live in Seaquestria.

It Isn't the Mane Thing About You · 8:23pm Sep 16th, 2017

Friendship is Magic first impressions review: It Isn't the Mane Thing About You (s07e19)
by Obake

(SPOILERS!)

It Isn't the Mane Thing About You is a strange case. Tonally, it feels like an episode from seasons 1 or 2, with a few modern era things thrown in. There's not much to say about it other than its mostly fine, save bad pacing.

Friendship is Magic first impressions review: Molt Down (s08e11)
by Obake

(SPOILERS!)

Since I have a full schedule this afternoon, I figure getting this review out early would be a good idea. Hence, I haven't had time to find a completed version of the episode, only the leaked version, which should suffice.

First Impressions: Horse Play · 8:20pm Apr 28th, 2018

Friendship is Magic first impressions review: Horse Play (s08e07)
by Obake

(SPOILERS!)

Twilight gives Celestia the leading role in a play, despite Celestia's lack of acting talent. Already this comes off weird. Celestia's been a ruler for over a millennium, presumably having talked to thousands of crowds, yet can't get her voice right on stage. I'll give it a slight pass, but this season has had a lot of awkward story beats with characters.

Friendship is Magic first impressions review: Honest Apple (s07e09)
by Obake

(SPOILERS!)

Rarity chooses Applejack as one of the judges for her latest fashion contest. That last sentence sounds ridiculous, but the episode offers a reasonable excuse: Applejack has a keen eye for practicality, something regular judges tend to lack. When she finally accepts the offer, it is believable. The setup is quickly established, and everyone is in character. The first few scenes are great.

Pinkie must learn to cope with Maud's new boyfriend. This episode is more interesting in premise than execution.

This episode is a blend of good and bad, much like a love potion. Or is it love poison?
