We’re back for the last time this year as we’ve reached the end of My Little Pony’s sixth season! It’s not always the best show out there as episodes like The Cart Before the Ponies or 28 Pranks Later have clearly proven, but it’s always deflating to get to the end of a season knowing that it’ll be quite some time before they pick things back up again; especially considering they just released the latest Equestria Girls movie instead of waiting a bit and using it to tide us over between now and season seven. WHAT DO I HAVE LEFT!? Oh wait, they’re still making the comics. That should work! Anyway, does this episode cap off the sixth season on a high note and leave us wanting more, or will we begging for it to be over as soon as possible? Let’s find out!!
The episode begins at Twilight’s Doom Fortress where the three primary residents, Twilight, Starlight, and the slave boy, are moving books into the basement because there’s not enough room left upstairs. Wait, does her castle actually double as a library or is this her personal hoard? I mean, it’s not like the small town of Ponyville was swimming in libraries BEFORE Tirek torched Golden Oaks to the ground, so you’d think Twilight AT LEAST owes that much to the city. Oh I’m sorry, were Twilight and Starlight talking about friendship or something? I wasn’t payment that much attention and neither was Spike for that matter who wanders off from the conversation to look out the window. A wise move considering there’s something heading right for them at terminal velocity.
“DON’T YOU DARE SMASH INTO THOSE BOOKS!” “Oh I’m smashing those books!” “DAMN IT!”
We’re finally here! It’s the end of the fifth season of My Little Pony and it has certainly been a rocky one. With some really strong episodes right out of the gate, it looked like this season was going to be the best of the series, but over time it started to wander back into its usually high, but not extraordinary, standards. Still, the season finales have always been a high mark for the series with A Canterlot Wedding being one of my favorite episodes of the series. Will they manage to pull out all the stops so that we can close this season on a high note, or will it just be another example of this season taking things too safe? Let’s find out!!
The episode begins with Twilight trying to memorize a speech she’s going to give at Celestia’s School of Magic and progress seems to be slow… despite the speech being barely a paragraph long. Well Twilight being the perfectionist that she is continues to rehearse the speech over and over again to a captive audience of one.
We’re back with another episode of everyone’s favorite reboot of a popular 80’s franchise! Season five has been trucking along for a while now and it’s been mostly good but still doesn’t feel like it’s reached its stride just yet. Will another appearance by the one and only John de Lancie be what this season needs to get going, or will yet another episode about Discord prove that even a character as dynamic and interesting as him can eventually be overused to the point of diminishing returns? Let’s find out!!
The episode begins with Discord and Fluttershy having tea and sharing dirty jokes.
“And he asked them ‘what do you call yourselves?’ And then he says… THE ARISTOCRATS!!” “HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!”
