Reviews Comments: Bit of a step down. My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic S 2 E 8 The Mysterious Mare Do Well episode/issue review by Ryonne
Now, don't get me wrong- I love this show. I practically worship the air it breathes, but this was a gigantic step down from the usual quality it produces. I don't usually make reviews but I found that it was worth pointing out; many of the jokes seemed forced, and the overall plotline was expectable, trite, and quite frankly disappointing. There seemed to be a few forced attempts at memedom hidden inside the episode (Spike is a ghost, anyone?), and a few of the characters were acting a bit... off, to say the least. I find this a shock, coming from such a fantastic episode as "May the Best Pet Win", but this isn't an isolated incident in the second season; "Sisterhooves Social" pretty much evoked the same response from me. I can't say the entire season is doomed to this fate, as we still have great works like "Lesson Zero" and "Cutie Pox" in our wake, but I'm praying that the season will hopefully shape up for the next few episodes. Overall... 6/10. And I'm surprised that I'm giving that type of a rating to this fantastic show. Hopefully things will change.
