Episode Title: "Just For Sidekicks"
Episode Air Date: Saturday, January 26th, 2013 / 10:30 AM EST, the HUB

SUMMARY:
"In an effort to get his hands on some gems, Spike decides to offer his pet-sitting services to Twilight and her friends, but after convincing them that hes capable of such a task, he realizes too late that pet-sitting is more work than it seems."

--------------

Alright, alright, alright! [/Matthew McConaughey impression]

We're back with a new episode, and this one seems to focus on Spike and the non-pony background characters affectionately known as "pets"! This one should be interesting, as it's taking a different course than what we've seen this season, or even last season for that matter, so I am curious to see how it will play out. Now, as always, you know the rules, but I will state them again: Talk about the episode as much as you want, but all spoilers must be in spoiler code! I usually say 3 PM EST, but I'm pushing it forward to 5 PM EST, because I've noticed some folks are unable to see the episode until later. That said, post away, my Bronies!

OBLIGATORY PONY POST. MLP SUBROUTINE ENABLED.

Mmm. Yeah. I just can't work up any enthusiasm for this one. Maybe it's because we've already done a Spike episode this season, or maybe I'm just getting burned out on the season 3 vibe. Whatever. Hopefully my lack of interest means I'll end up pleasantly surprised.

/me is apprehensive

The last two episodes I had lots of issues with, and one of those was a Spike episode (two Spike episodes and not a single Rarity-centric episode this season?). So, my enthusiasm is not high.

Although...

"In an effort to get his hands on some gems..." - is Spike playing the Gameloft game too? :p

I know, right?

EDIT: Due to still being awake because reasons, I'll likely be sleeping through this one live. I'll see you guys whenever I finally watch it...

Yay! New pony is always good! :D
I loved it.



All in all, a great episode, lots of fun, clever moments, so I easily give it an "A". It's not a grand adventure, but it is a fun ride. :D

Season 1 esque and better than several previous ones, I loved it but Spike was pretty annoying in it, he should really have been turning to his greedy mode but didn't.

Either way very good with a lot of nods to previous episodes.

^I think Spike has started to mature. Also... I think his fear checks his greed now.

Decent. There was a lot of good continuity. But there was one seriously bad bit of continuity. It has been established for the past 2 seasons that gems are near worthless to ponies. Now they're considered viable currency? What happened to bits?

^When was it established that they're worthless?

A nice, little episode. I liked the way Dashie behaved and tried to hide her affection for Tank and the inclusion of the CMC. Also, my favourite pet, Opal, showed up and didn't disappoint.

Blushing Dashie is best Dashie. :D
