I'm a Cadance fan, so that's 3 Pros for me!

Huh, wasn't expecting more Discord already! This sounds like fun.

I wasn't a big fan of either Cadance or Shining during "Canterlot Wedding" - I've come to like the episode more than I did at the time, though their out-of-left-field dominance within the plot is still a bit weird to me. However, both of the characters have very much grown on me since then, and I'm actually looking forward to a Cadance appearance - it's been a while!

That was awesome. I had no idea that Discord would be showing up in this episode so it was an even bigger treat, I felt. His song performance was outstanding - there were so many pop culture references of which I missed most. The "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" outfit just right afterwards made me crack up.

Fluttershy is really too good to be true. I liked her outfit for her trip, by the way.

The weird worm thing was also a fun monster.

Ans rarity also got some nice scenes and lines again. This season is really quite rewarding for those of us who appreciate her.

I have only one thing to say about this episode: DISCORD!

I could watch him all day long, he doesn't even have to speak. The visual puns are so awesomely hilarious, both Fear And Loathing in Las Vegas and Harry Potter...

Re: MLP:FiM S4E11 - "Three's A Crowd" - Grading & Discussion

I loved it. I had a field day with all of the references, most of which were from movies made in the late 80s / early 90s (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Risky Business), plus the whole Harry Potter reference nearly killed me.

The interplay between Cadance and Twilight was awesome, and it was just good to see Cadance again, outside some kind of royal endeavor. There was a Seussian quality to the episode, with the way Discord acted and the song was great. Definitely an "A" from me.

The Breezies... something tells me they won't be the same as in G3.

This episode passed by way too quickly for me. I was just getting into it, and it was done! How dare they restrict it to 22 minutes!

All that was missing was Discord saying "Sandworms, you know I hate them"

Fun episode and Discord didn't disappoint.

This was my favorite Discord episode and has redeemed him as a storyline for me. I loved the song. Excellent.

The only thing that brought me out of a story was how the "loyal" one was the first to disappear when Discord showed up - especially JUST after an episode about it. Otherwise, excellent episode. John de Lancie can't really sing, but it was an awesome song nonetheless, and who doesn't like in-jokes being thrown at you with each line!
