The Apple Barn.  My Little Pony's version of the Voygaer Shuttlecraft, except My Little Pony explains how they get rebuilt.

Spoilers for that sort of thing please? I'm that neurotic sort that tries really, really hard not to know anything whatsoever about upcoming episodes until they actually air.

Second half of this weeks episode was enjoyable.  All 6 of the ponies getting some time.  Didn't care too much for the first half.  there was no reason to make Spike suddenly incompetent.


3 Weeks till new ponies...

Yeah, I didn't get that part, why did they suddenly make Spike so clumsy? 

Only thing I can think of is they didn't want to rely on him just being a pest constantly asking to do stuff, but that would have been preferable to what they did, and be a better lesson for the kiddies target audience.

It was sort of a weird Spike episode. This whole "life debt" thing sorta came out of nowhere (that was hardly the first time he'd been in real peril on this show, or the first time another pony had saved him). Sure, he cried a bit when he told Twilight he had to leave, but it still felt rather slight, especially after the season premier revealed his greatest fear was, in fact, Twilight sending him away. Also, yeah, he's normal,ly much more competent. I mean, he's got a thumb. He should be able to do pretty much any kind of manual (non-bucking) task better than any pony.

Perhaps boredom just messes with his head worse than most.

Still, this episode had a lot of little moments that worked. Like you said, the mane 6 were used very well (this is actually one of the better episodes to have solid, organic reasons for all 6 of them to appear and act the way they do), and there's a bunch of little sight gags that work wonders. Pinkie's bits in particular were excellent, as was the way AJ got Twilight's attention in the library. Plus, I for one am always happy to get more Timberwolves, as they're one of my favorite creatures on the show (and I dug how they were rendered as CGI rather than flash based this time around, made them look that much more unnatural and out-of-place compared to the others). So a funny episode, if not a great canon one.

Another mighty fine episode that, while very funny in many sections (they're killing it with visual gags lately) and full of Fluttershy goodness, also once again shows the troublesome limitations and downsides brought on by 22-minute runtimes.

Well, I don't know about troublesome but this episode could certainly have been longer, things did seem a bit rushed and with more time all the other ponies could have had more to do. 

They certainly keep teasing us with hints that something really big is going to happen.

I hope they can find a way around a certain character upstaging or helping the Main 6 out too much. On a lighter note:

That episode was great. 

And Rairty is the element of singyness. 

Winona is amazing.
