Figures I sleep in the weekend that Xyro is sick and not uploading the episode to YouTube.
Finally found a place to watch it. It was...fine, I guess. The best parts were Mr.s Harshwhinny being a dick, and them actually bringing up Scootaloo not being able to fly. Still, I feel like they wussed out at the end by leaving the door open for her maybe-flying-someday-slash-maybe-not. And I couldn't give less of a fuck about the Equestria Games or the Crystal fucking Empire.
I dunno. Maybe it's me, but ever since season 3 (or thereabouts) these bog-standard kid's-show-type episodes have been wearing thin. It just feels like they can't commit to anything truly interesting.
I'll be in the corner, rocking back and forth and reminding myself of the great trio of episodes that started the season. I want the season arc back sooner rather than later, please.
Current season rankings:
Princess Twilight (Part 1): B
Princess Twilight (Part 2): B+
Castle Mane-ia: A
Daring Don't: C
Flight to the Finish: C+
