An episode that finally breaks the trend of a static Fluttershy, ignoring her normal timid nature, and instead showing her in her element, caring for woodland creatures. Unfortunately, strong elements of generic slapstick comedy keep this episode from soaring as high as it otherwise could.
Season 4 is looking to far more ambitious in scope that Season 3, delving into a lot more interesting concepts, many of which we have been waiting to hear about for a long time now.
Trixie is one of the most popular side characters in all of MLP, despite her limited screen time and…shall we say brash nature? Why is this? What causes her to appeal to so many people? Well, let’s take a look…
Applejack has a reputation for being a background pony, but she’s such a strong character! Why is she ignored by so many, least of all the writing staff? Well, let’s take a look…
Princess Luna and Celestia seem to throw everything we know about Astronomy for a loop. What would happen if we applied some modern knowhow to their abilities?
Raise even more pointless questions, thats what.
King Sombra had essentially no characterization, and was judged critically for it.
But, what if his lack of persona was on purpose?
Sombra’s Banishment and Nightmare Moon’s rise to power both apparently happened very close to each other. Not to mention the two have some striking similarities. Could there possibly be a connection between the two?
Probably not. But it’s fun to think about.
