Re: MLP:FiM S3E4 - "One Bad Apple" - Grading & Discussion

"Emergency edible boots."


So. I didn't get a chance to watch this one live because I was out of town, but now that I got to (finally!) sit down with was pretty good. Not sure if it rises to the level of an "A" but it was probably the most solid of the season so far, as the CMC are reliably excellent in whatever they're in. The first two acts were great all around, but things went off the rails a bit by the ending. Still, it didn't go as badly WTF as, say, Luna Eclipsed, so compared with season 2, season 3 is two-for-two in the regular episode department.

Eh. Middle of the road stuff, with a fairly obvious twist. Some good bits, but the "very special episode" feeling I had based on the early synopsis didn't go away.
Yeah, it kinda became "Very Special" there at the end, didn't it? On the other hand, I thought it turned out much better than I feared when Meghan announced were were getting a special bullying episode. It could have gone so, so wrong. As it stands, it only simplified and patronized a little bit – and everything else was so good I don't really care.

I loved it, but then I love the CMC, Applebloom in particular.
QFT, though best CMC is Sweetie Belle. Obviously.

Although Gold Blindbag Sweetie Belle was weird.
Oh my God, that's what that is, isn't it? They're squeezing all the absurd blindbag variations into the show.

Yeah, the Doctor likes to change companions frequently.
Apparently the Doctor was wearing a bow tie and pear costume in the parade, seemingly a reference to Eleven who thinks pears are "rubbish." We love you too, Studio B.
