Last weekend there was the season premiere of My Little Pony, and I've put off giving my opinion on it for long enough that if I don't do it now it'll start stacking up with this week's episode and it'll never get done. Which is... probably not anything anyone would care about but I'm writing this anyway, damn it.

spoilers )

So overall, while it doesn't make my list of all-time favorites, it was a really good episode. 3/3
terrycloth: (0bg)
Or perhaps not at all, depending on how real unreal things are. MLP has a weird philosophy regarding time travel.

spoilers )

I'll give it 3/3 even if the ending wasn't exactly what I would have wanted. The solution was logical in broad stokes, and it was only some of the details that fell flat. Meanwhile, the rest of the episode was an excuse to wow us with stuff, and it did.

On this week's My Little Pony, a famous(?) singer was hired to do some voice acting and singing for the episode. She actually did a really good job! But what about the episode?

spoilers )

So I guess it's 2/3 because nothing really happens and the part with the thing and the other part with the same thing were annoying, and also the only real plot points.
terrycloth: (pink)
Other than that, this week's MLP was pretty good. But OH MY GOD THE PAIN.

spoilers )

So... huh. It was fun but there were some logical flaws and really grating issues, so I'll give it 2/3.
terrycloth: (pink)
I'm not sure there was actually a moral for this week's my little pony episode. There was a huge preachy moral speech, but yay? Mostly it was just ponies laughing.

spoilers )

Overall, it was a pretty good episode, but there were some annoyingly preachy bits and they really milked all the things. Even if that was part of the joke it was still annoying. 2/3.
terrycloth: (pink)
...smashing an apple into a pie and splattering sticky goo everywhere!

spoilers )

Anyway, it was a really fun episode with the 'new' characters actually being interesting and likable, and little hints of worldbuilding that felt natural. 3/3.
terrycloth: (pink)
EVERYTHING

spoilers )

The moral of the story is that people shouldn't rely on not being told spoilers, because it's really painful for everyone who knows and it doesn't matter that much anyway. Or possibly the opposite, but I'm going with my gut.

But it was a fun episode, without anything to really drag it down. I'm going to provisionally give it 3/3 although I'm worried that might just be an overreaction to the last couple episodes being terrible.

My table is full of heavy books and game boxes. It's surrounded by piles of comic books, and table itself is really fragile, both because of general shoddy construction and because one of the key supports was missing when I bought it so it's always been kind of wobbly.

So I didn't flip the table after today's MLP episode. That's really the only reason.

argh )

So, this episode gets 1/3 from the pain of having to watch it, with an additional 2 point penalty for the things it defined without really needing to and did a terrible job at. -1/3.

I also realize I didn't talk about the episode from last week. This is sort of because I don't want to talk about it. I was cringing through the entire episode, almost literally. Everything about the episode made me cringe. 1/3 for spoilor ). Of course, compared to this week's travesty, it was a masterpiece.

So much Rarity...

So sick of Rarity...

Eh, the episode had lots of AJ too, at least.

spoilers )

But overall, the episode was fun and the payoff scene at the end was actually kind of heartwarming without being too anvilicious. Still, it featured Rarity, so I can only give it 2/3.

Oops!

No, I didn't miss the 14th episode of season 5. I've just been really forgetful lately. v.v So, let's talk about 14 and 15.

spoilers )

Overall... too much Rarity. But the first episode had a good payoff scene at the end, and the second episode she was actually Pinkie Pie in disguise, so I'll give them each 2/3.
terrycloth: (pink)
On this week's episode of My Little Pony, nothing happens. Most of the cast sleep through the entire episode.

spoilers )

So, yeah, just some quibbles. Overall, though, it just didn't gel into something awesome -- the pieces were neat but fit together awkwardly. I'll give it 2/3.
terrycloth: (pink)
This week's episode of My Little Pony is all about background ponies. Albeit ones with previous speaking roles. Except for the main one who hasn't been seen since G1.

spoilers )

Anyway, it was a very cute episode with some real emotion and an appropriate level of world-building. Not a lot of jokes per-se, but some visual humor. I think I'll give it 3/3.
terrycloth: (down)
Aka, 'Spike Ruins Everything, take 4'.

Worst. Episode. Ever. Except for Equestria Games, because at least this time he didn't sing.

spoilers )

0/3. Really don't want to watch again.

Yesterday's episode of My Little Pony was much, much better than I thought it was going to be. I thought it would be a cringe-worthy parade of references to fan interpretations of various background ponies, and it was, but it was also funny.

spoilers )

So... yeah. The stuff I expected to hate was there, but I only hated about half of it, and there was a lot of really funny stuff to compensate. So I'll give it a 2/3.
terrycloth: (pink)
...exactly what you'd think. Unless you're Rainbow Dash.

spoilers )

At any rate, it was a pretty good episode with an adorable performance by Twilight (and Gummy), and I think I liked it better the second time I watched it. The flashback was a little offputting and there were a couple other parts that fell flat, but overall I think it's still 3/3.
terrycloth: (pink)
This week's MLP was much less of a disappointment than this week's attempt at playing a game. In today's episode, Discord learns that he needs to stop being such a self-centered jerk.

Or something. )

Still, a very funny episode. 3/3

Rodeo. Yay.

In today's My Little Pony, I discovered that I don't like rodeos, or clowns, or rodeo clowns, which would have ruined the episode but it was already bad.

spoilers )

So, yeah. 1/3.

In other (pony) news... more chapters of Pathfinder Ponies:
Power of Prayer, where the party finally interrogates their hostage.
Field of Battle, where they lead an army to destroy a horde of undead.
Reserve Force, where they leave the army behind to face down a horde of zebras.
terrycloth: (pink)
On today's episode of My Little Pony, we learn that Rainbow Dash can sing. And cause millions of bits in property damage. But it's for a good cause: otherwise, she'll be bored!

spoilers )

Overall, a really good episode. 3/3
terrycloth: (pink)
In this week's My Little Pony, Applebloom gets her cutie mark. Repeatedly.

and if you believe that... )

So... yeah. I think on rewatching, I liked it better than Castle Sweet Castle, but... I don't know. I guess it's still only 2/3, but I'd me more likely to bump it up than down.
terrycloth: (pink)
In this week's episode of my little pony, everypony is an idiot.

spoilers )

Aaanyway, it wasn't awful, just a little cringeworthy. Okay, a lot cringeworthy. A carefully choreographed trainwreck. 2/3.
