* SenorCornholio: Let's just say season 6 got off to a rocky start. [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E1TheCrystallingPart1 The]] [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E2TheCrystallingPart2 Crystalling]] was simply an alright two-parter, which was pretty bad for premiere standards; I did like Starlight's interactions with Spike and Sunburst, as well as some of the moments with the newborn Flurry Heart, but I wasn't too fond of the fact that there wasn't even a villain this time around and we were instead treated to just bad weather. My big problem has to do with Flurry Heart herself: see, despite all the drama surrounding Flurry Heart, I was willing to accept her existence as an alicorn being the result of one of her parents, Cadence, being an alicorn herself, and it would be easily explained in that context...however, that's not what we got. What we got instead was Celestia and Luna conveniently popping in to say "oh yeah btw, alicorns were never born in Equestria, jk about our births, lol". Josh Haber, I like what you've done so far for this show, you're a great writer, but you done goofed. This was a perfect opportunity to tell us that alicorns can be birthed, and you soiled it. Either they're copping out on mentioning this tiny little explanation until the season finale (thus making it seem like a waste of time to even delay the explanation in the first place), or they're coming up with a new, less explainable and possibly more complicated answer. Oh, and they spat in the JournalOfTheTwoSisters which said that Celestia and Luna were supposedly born as alicorns. Yeah, TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot doesn't even begin to describe it in my opinion.

** @/BrokenShell: For me, it was the sheer [[TheyJustDidntCare absence of effort]] of the redub! The woman who voiced RD didn't even sound in character! I honestly thought it was a fan dub when I first watched it! I can get over Hasbro erring on the side of caution about the whole Derpy thing, but I can't forgive complete and utter lack of quality. Studio B knew they were [[InternetBackdraft screwed either way]] over this, maybe appearing to give a flying crap about it would've softened the blow?

** @/SpaghettiBoy: Honestly, the episode really really made me think "... Seriously Hasbro?" TheyJustDidntCare. No, it's not because of the whole "Twilight Sparkle is an Alicorn" thing... but I was really unnerved by the singing voices. I know they sometimes have different voices for the voice actors when they sing... but what some other companies (like Disney) understand that Hasbro apparently doesn't is that if it's going to be a musical, the singing voices shouldn't sound like completely different people. Only Pinkie Pie and Celestia seemed to be even somewhat consistent, and even then, it was mostly Pinkie. I know it's not the fault of the voice actors, but come on.

** Tropers/{{Yellow Apelsz}}: I thought the episode was alright, I wasn't the biggest fan of it but I didn't think it was bad. The only thing that really bothered me about the episode was Pinkie Pie. Yes, she's weird. Yes, she's over the top. Yes, she's hyperactive. But a fucking balloon distracts her from talking to Fluttershy, because TheyJustDidntCare. A fucking balloon is how she's written out of the episode, and her parting line is "I wonder where these keep coming from" or something like that when she fucking [[EpicFail saw Discord make it.]] No. Pinkie is a kook, she is strange, she is absentminded at times, but she is NOT stupid. That alone soured my viewing, and I'm sure I actually would've liked the episode a lot more, despite its flaws, but the way Pinkie was handled in this episode just killed it for me.

* [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E20TheOneWherePinkiePieKnows The One Where Pinkie Pie Knows]]
** Tropers/{{Arachnos}}: This is an episode where nothing of any interest happens. In other words, there is no reason for this episode to exist. The "plot" is as dry as a desert. The whole episode is literally a platform for Pinkie Pie to be doing weird shit. I couldn't help but cringe every 30 seconds at Pinkie's exaggerated "problems" with something utterly trivial. I didn't like Pinkie Pie as a character in the first place, and oooooh boy this episode has done nothing to change that. MLP has had some great, good, and meh episodes over the years but up until now, none of them had made me say "I want 24 minutes of my life back" at the end. This one did. It's 24 minutes of Pinkie Pie being a moron. This is G3 levels of bad when it comes to episode premises. I truly believe this is the worst MLP episode so far. Some people have problems with "Crusaders of the Lost Mark", I personally loved it, which only makes this episode, which comes right after it, all the more painful. I want 24 minutes of my life back. It's that bad.
