We’re back with another episode of All in The Pie Family; a show that ALSO had a breakout star named Maud!  Okay, it was spelled Maude, but close enough!!  Maud Pie is one of the most popular characters of the series since her debut in season four to the point that she’s one of the very few secondary characters to have multiple episodes focused on them.  Seriously, does anyone even remember the last time Zecora got a speaking role?  Not even The Cakes get more than one chance in the spotlight!?  PINKIE PIE LIVES WITH THEM FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!  No… have to focus.  Lack of Mr. and Mrs. Cake aside… Maud has had a very strong record so far as her episodes tend to stand out quite a bit, and with the solid track record this season has so far with supporting characters, it seems likely that that trend will continue.  Do they manage to pull off another great episode with everyone’s favorite April Ludgate impersonator, or are we reaching the point of oversaturation one of the show’s more interesting characters?  Let’s find out!!

The episode begins with Maud Pie getting her Rock-torate in Rock Studies (because Geology isn’t a funny enough word) and the whole Pie family is there for the graduation ceremony… which only includes her.  Hey, at least she’s not trying to get a job in an oversaturated market, which I assume is the case with Magic Studies graduates.  I mean, if the choices are CONTROLLING THE UNIMAGINABLE POWER AROUND YOU or looking at dirt all day, I’m pretty sure we’d ALL go for the one that lets us shoot fire balls.

Super Recaps: My Little Pony season 6 (The Gift of the Maud Pie)

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and all the images you see in this recap are owned by Hasbro.

Episode directed by Denny Lu and Tim Stuby

Season six started on a rather low key note with last week’s premiere not having much in regards to stakes or world building outside of the introduction of Flurry Heart.  Still, while season five may have started SPECTACULARLY strong, it was right after the premiere that things started to go downhill with Castle Sweet Castle being a mindless slog to get through.  Can this episode manage to keep the quality consistent with what we saw before, or is this season destined to have the same nose dive that season five found itself in when it refused to build off of what had been set up?  Let’s find out!!

The episode begins with Rarity and Pinkie Pie on a train headed for Manehattan with the one looking to open a third boutique location (the best idea for any small business owner is apparently to overextend themselves) and the other on her way to visit Maud Pie; one of the more recent challengers for title of Best Pony.

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 (Make New Friends but Keep Discord)

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!!!!!”
