Super Recaps: My Little Pony season 5 (Crusaders of the Lost Mark)

We’re back with another episode of the Cutie Mark Crusader Chronicles!  It’s actually been quite some time since the last CMC centric episode with Apleloosa’s Most Wanted being the last one I can recall that had all three of them in it in significant roles.  Now that they have another episode to continue their never ending quest to find out what their good at, will this be another example of the show recycling ideas it’s already done like the competent but derivative Made in Manehattan, or will they do something new with these characters who’ve been working toward s a single goal for five seasons now?  Let’s find out!!

The episode starts with the CMC in their clubhouse trying to decide what to do next to get their Cutie Marks and break out into song.  What, this early in the episode?  Don’t wear Daniel Ingram out too quickly!  Actually, they do cut the song short because little ol’ Pip Squeak (who has the worst name to give a grade schooler other than Stupid Face) comes bursting into the CMC headquarters to ask for their assistance in winning the Student Council presidential election.  Wait, so the CMC are basically a temp agency now?  People just come up to them to do random chores with the promise that they might earn their Cutie Marks?

“Cutie Mark Crusaders!  My gutters need cleaning!”     “We can get our Cutie Marks in landscaping!!”     “Oh yeah!  Totally!  Now I need them done by Thursday.  Bring your own ladder.”
