I did like his signature mane flip, though. Eventually, however, two help each other work out their respective leadership problems. So there really isn't anything to back up this assertion that being insanely over-the-top builds confidence. I didn't like his distorted conception of cutie marks, and it was good that they cleared it up that cutie marks don't change who you are or force you to do anything. We also saw her do some incredible morally outrageous acts and was very slow to realize why they were wrong in the first place. Truly, you read that right. All Bottled Up - Terrible I hated this one.
I loved how she kept squealing, and the bit at the end when Rainbow Dash and her parents kept cheering her on was adorable. Admittedly, this episode avoided most of the worst uses of that cliché. Seeing Fluttershy trying to be chaotic and weird was just awesome. Really, everything was nice and clicking together. Making a raffle or so, so Season 8 and 9 might contain way better episodes than now. Appraisals expanded sixfold that first week and have been gradually climbing from that point forward, and the online buzz began very quickly about the new My Little Pony appear, subtitled Friendship Is Magic. Through stories told by friends of their parents, the siblings learn about the star-crossed romance between Pear Butter and their father, Bright Mac, which is complicated by Grand Pear's plans to move his family away from Ponyville.
Shadow Play I hated for its appalling execution and terrible backstories of the princesses and the Tree of Harmony. A Health of Information - Excellent This one was great. However, the most touching story for me was Gallus. Discordant Harmony - Masterpiece Discordant Harmony was my favourite Season 7 episode, and also it was an episode filled to the brim with Discord! Flying spiders is the most disgusting and terrifying concept I have ever heard of. Well, in my opinion, a club could be a better opportunity instead of a School of Friendship. I liked how the Cutie Map was a thing shared between the Mane 6. It was adorable when Twilight and Flurry Heart played together at the beginning and the end, but the rest wasn't any fun to watch, and was rather aggravating.
This was one of the better Starlight episodes. Meanwhile, Shining Armor and Cadance begin to miss Flurry Heart and leave the art show early. Visiting Goldie Delicious for more information, the siblings discover that their mother, Buttercup, was Grand Pear's daughter named Pear Butter. Discordant Harmony and The Perfect Pear also aired in Australia on Boomerang earlier than Discovery Family. Scootaloo says that all the over-the-top praise gave Dash confidence. Fame and Misfortune - Bad I didn't like this episode.
Differences between original air date order and production order are noted with italics. Pear Butter asserts her place with the Apple family and cuts ties with Grand Pear when he refuses to accept their love. The rest were all shallow characters, save for his favorite. It is actually entertaining for adults as well which is all I can ask for in a children's cartoon. The two find the map at the spa where they first met, and return it to the castle just as Twilight and her friends arrive.
I really freaking loved this one. No Changelings rip Starlight to shreds already! But I liked the bit where Fluttershy scolded the builders for ignoring her instructions, and the bit where they built the animal sanctuary was sweet. Bright Mac and Pear Butter were so sweet, how they had a secret romance, and I like how they mirror Big Mac and Sugar Belle. I really don't like this episode. What's actually happening with FiM? Outraged at the experts for ignoring her directions, Fluttershy sends them away. The filly who painted circles was adorable, too.
It's better than I expected this cliched a premise to be, but it's still not good. Then, she and her friends fought Tirek and she got her own castle, after her Library was destroyed. Honest Apple - Abomination Honest Apple was absolutely terrible, and I can't stand how they made it out that Applejack was the one in the wrong. I was never that big into how the show had Starswirl be responsible for virtually every frigging thing that happened in the show prior to the Mane Six showing up, so I was perfectly fine with him being shown to be a jackass. Remember kids, horrible methods are totally acceptable so long as the end result is okay. The makeovers were awesome, too.
Fluttershy Leans In - Good I liked Fluttershy Leans In. Weird Al is like the soundtrack of my childhood. Things are starting to get more normal, usual and less confused and things went on usually and safely. First we got Twilight was sended to Ponyville to learn the Magic of Friendship. So that was smart, I just wish it had been set up earlier.
There was absolutely no point to this episode other than to ruin friendships for the viewers. Here, everyone treats a permanent rupture between the Royal Sisters and either or both of them becoming evil or crazy as imminent or unavoidable. Yeah, this was a real fun one. After this happens, the Cutie Map unexpectedly alerts Spike of a friendship problem in Ponyville, and he begins avoiding Ember and Thorax to find it. The Crusaders help Big Mac compete against Feather Bangs using grand, romantic gestures, but Sugar Belle is overwhelmed by their advances and rejects both stallions.
Apparently Starswirl the Bearded planted the Tree of Harmony? With both sisters admitting their jobs are equally challenging, Celestia dispels Starlight's nightmare with Luna's support. I don't like that at all. Besides doing more with Zecora yay! When the ponies use the Elements on the Pony of Shadows, Twilight and Starlight see Stygian in the monster's body and reach out to him, learning that his supposed betrayal was actually an attempt to help the Pillars protect Equestria as their equal. I loved the bit at the beginning when she was being so flirty with Big Mac, and the bit at the end when they became a couple was so sweet. It was funny seeing Twilight's paranoia, too, and I'm really glad Starlight didn't leave, as Ponyville is her home and it is where her friends are, so leaving would not be right. Rainbow Dash bakes a huge, disgusting pie and prepares to eat it in front of Pinkie as an apology, but Pinkie, seeing this, forgives her before she can finish, now understanding the lengths to which Rainbow Dash would go to make her happy. By this time, Fluttershy contracts swamp fever as well, but she continues to push herself for Zecora's sake until she ultimately passes out for three days due to extreme exhaustion during a confrontation with the territorial bees.
