Re: MLP:FiM S3 Episode 6 - "Sleepless in Ponyville" Grading & Discussi

The season keeps on bringing good to excellent episodes, and "Sleepless in Ponyville" is no exception.

There's lots of great animation in this episode, especially from Scootaloo in her reactions to the events. And, of course, Sweetie Belle's huge sad eyes. :P

Rarity was in great form, as she's really been all season, with some great lines, gags, and reactions throughout. (And, a nice little amusing touch was Sweetie Belle still smiling while carrying/pulling her luggage.)

I noticed in one scene the music from the Sonic Rainboom training scene was used, and then minutes later, that event was referenced. (Speaking of, anyone notice the clucking-chicken sound effect when Scoot crashed one time?)

Rainbow Dash was funny in this episode too, with her snoring (her being the Headless Horses' whinny was great!) Her impression of Rarity was also great.

Maddy Peters did a wonderful job with a ton of lines and reactions for Scootaloo. It was nice to see an episode with her, and it didn't even focus on the cutie mark angle.

Luna was a complete and wonderful surprise for me. Her role was great in this one, even if it wasn't as outright hilarious as "Luna Eclipsed." Her sensing nightmares and going into to them fits well with her role, and is an interesting expansion of the mythos.

I can't ignore Sweetie Belle's hilariously random bad singing of "Buckets of Oats" and Scoot's hilarious head-bobbing.

I liked the ending, which was positive and upbeat. This was a solid and enjoyable episode. It wasn't as epic as "Magic Duel" or hilarious as "Too Many Pinkie Pies," but still good nonetheless.

I give it a solid B.

Re: MLP:FiM S3 Episode 6 - "Sleepless in Ponyville" Grading & Discussi

Not going to lie, I was more excited by the new Luna character-building than the Scootalove. When I saw that first glimpse of Luna in the woods in the dream, I thought "well, at least we're getting a shoutout", but then she actually showed up and had something to do! (we need some smileys doing dances or something).


Wasn't too crazy about One Bad Apple, but the rest of the season has been pretty darn good. Wonder when we'll get some info on th supposed movie?
