We’re back with another episode of You Don’t Know Applejack!  For the first time in a while, it looks like we’re gonna get a flashback episode to the halcyon days of yore for at least one of our regulars, and maybe get some insight into how they became the pony they are now!  Will this trip down memory lane be a breath of fresh air as we get to see characters at a different point in their lives, or will we get more of the same despite the chance to change things up a bit?  Let’s find out!!

The episode begins with The Apple Family providing Filthy Rich with his latest delivery of Zap Apple Jam to sell in his store.  I’m surprised that the CEO has to personally transport the goods himself, but maybe there’s something more to this transaction than what we’re seeing…

“Four cases of Zap Apple Jam, and two cases of… apples.”     “Are the… apples pure?”     “Of course they are!  We don’t cut our apples with bullshit!  You should know better by now!”     “Alright!  Be cool!”

We’re back with another episode of the Discord Diaries!  Now the last season used John de Lancie’s iconic character a whole bunch, so maybe the thinking on this season is to not overload us with his presence; lest he end up overtaking the show which can happen when side characters get to popular (*cough* Jack Sparrow *cough*), so saving Discord for when the show really needs it might be the right move.  Does this new strategy pan out as we get a REALLY great Discord episode for the sixth season, or is this just another mediocre romp for the season’s mostly disappointing second half?  Let’s find out!!

The episode begins with Discord acting all pissy (as is his nature) because Fluttershy has to go to Yakakistan (ugh…) on some sort of goodwill trip with Princess Celestia and the other protectors of Friendship.  Discord obviously can’t go because he’s not known for his tact and grace… and I’m pretty sure that brining a destructive God of chaos sends the wrong message on a peacekeeping mission.  That and I wouldn’t be surprised if he has arrest warrants all over Equestria; not just for enslaving everyone thousands of years ago, but for shit he’s done recently.

“You know I can’t go back there after… the incident.”     “Is Celestia still made at you for that?”     “Luna thought it was funny, so she’s been keeping me at arm’s length from the Sun Butt’s wrath.”

We back with another episode of Cutie Mark Crusaders: The After Years!  Considering they earned their marks towards the end of last season, we haven’t really had time to address what they would be doing now that they are no longer crusading.  Will they’re post Cutie Mark debut be the start of new adventures and possibilities, or is this episode gonna be a huge admission of buyer’s remorse?  Let’s find out!!

The episode begins with the Cutie Mark Crusaders decidedly not crusading for cutie marks to the Apple Bloom’ chagrin who would rather their time be spent not looking at each other’s asses.

“Did you see my Cutie Mark!?”     “Yes, I’ve seen your Cutie Mark.”     “No, but did you REALLY see it?”     “I’m pretty sure I have.”     “Well look again just to make sure!”     “Yeah Apple Bloom!  And then you can look at MINE again!”

Super Recaps: My Little Pony season 5 (Hearthbreakers)

We’re back with another episode of Ponies of our Lives!!  In this week’s episode, we get the television tradition of a Holiday episode two months before December.  It’s been a while since the last Hearth’s Warming Eve adventure so hopefully they’re pulling out all the stops if we’re going to revisit that well!  Will this be a celebration of all that’s good about the holiday season, or will we all end up grinning through fake smiles while begging for this to be over as soon as possible like most family gatherings?  Let’s find out!!

The episode begins in Twilight’s Doom Fortress where she’s getting things ready for Hearth’s Warming Eve… when all of a sudden, there arose such a clatter.  Twilight looked around anxiously to see what was the matter!  She powered up her horn and was expecting something spooky, but the intruder was nothing more than pony that’s kooky!

“Here’s PINKIE!!!!”     “We have a door you know, but please.  Go ahead and track soot through my living room.”     “This is your living room?”     “Well… ONE of them, but it is my favorite.”

Super Recaps: My Little Pony season 5 (Brotherhooves Social)

What the heck!?  It’s an episode WITHOUT RARITY!?!?  Can someone stick a thermometer in the ground to see if Hell just froze over?  Well in any case, it’s time we find out just what happened at the Sisterhooves Social that Applejack and Rarity had to miss last episode.  Will Twilight get a chance to do something for once by filling in?  Maybe, but since this is called Brotherhooves Social, I’m guessing we’re going to focus on someone else and unless it’s Shining Armor, she MAY not be in this episode.  Oh well, there’s always next time.  Will this episode be able to keep up the pace that we’ve been going at since the show returned, or will we see why Rarity should be the focus of every single episode!?  Let’s find out!!

The episode begins on the Apple farm (which coincidentally grows apples) where Granny Smith is making preparations for The Sisterhooves Social while Applejack and Apple Bloom are practicing outside.  Big Mac is helping Granny because he has nothing better to do but spends most of his efforts watching wistfully as Apple Bloom continues to rain affection on Applejack who has over the years completely overshadowed him and all his accomplishments.

Super Recaps: My Little Pony season 5 (Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?)

WHAT!?  We’re not gonna have ponies to talk about for a couple of months!?  HERESY!!  First Sailor Moon Crystal is ending its first season and now this!?  What will become of me without magical girls and magical ponies to talk about!?!?  NO!  I CANNOT LET THIS GET ME DOWN!!  I HAVE A JOB TO DO HERE AND I’M GONNA GIVE IT MY ALL!!!  So how do they decide to end this half of the season?  Why with a Luna episode of course!  Everyone’s favorite princess gets the spot light this week as we find out more about what’s going on inside her head and the trouble it causes for everyone else!  Will we get another classic episode like Luna Eclipsed, Bloom & Gloom, For Whom the Sweetie Belle Tolls, and several others, or will we get another bad one like… huh.  Actually, I don’t think she’s HAD a bad episode.  There were episodes where she was underutilized for sure, but never one that was bad.  Well THAT’S certainly a good sign, but can they keep up the trend in this episode!?  Let’s find out!!

The episode begins with the Mane 6 barreling down the halls of the Castle of the Two Sisters, clearly looking for something with the utmost of haste.  Their goal seems to be Princess Luna who’s standing in the main hall of the castle and seems to be expecting their arrival.  While waiting, a small cloud of star energy or whatnot appears behind her, and Luna address it as Tantibus and lets it know she’s ready for whatever happens next.

“My body is ready.”
