Not Asking for Trouble review
Snow Way Out
These reviews do contain spoilers. Read at your own risk.

As we prepare to enter the mid-season hiatus, the show decides to send the first part off with an episode featuring the return of the yaks from season five. Not Asking for Trouble is an episode that I honestly had a hard time to watch much like Fluttershy Leans in. Once again, the premise is fine and we do get to see the return of the yaks and their homeland.
I’m not really a fan of the yaks, but I was willing to give them another shot. After all, Gauntlet of Fire showed more about dragons being great and their home land, and that episode is easily one of my favorites. Yet this episode decides to miss out on such an opportunity to be inspired by that episode and go down a road we are all familiar with. There really isn’t a lot I can say about this episode to be honest. Mostly because this episode may sound familiar to many of you already just by the synopsis alone.

A Royal Problem review
The Great Switcheroo
These reviews do contain spoilers. Read at your own risk.

I have been dreading this day for a long time. It’s time to take a look at the long awaited episode involving the Royal Sisters, Celestia and Luna. A Royal Problem being hinted at, and later confirmed to be the first episode staring the Royal Sisters was a long time coming for these two. Sure, we’ve had our share of Luna episodes and, to an extent, a Celestia episode earlier in the season, but none staring the two together.
To begin with, I did like the idea of these two finally having a team up episode. Celestia and Luna have always either be captured by the villain of the season opener or finale, or contribute next to no help at all. I’m not really counting the comics since I don’t really consider them canon to the show at all, but that doesn’t change how overdue the Royal Sisters needed an episode. This was something they both needed to show how good they truly

Honest Apple review
Honesty is not the best policy
These reviews do contain spoilers. Read at your own risk.

What is it with FiM lately and all these Rarity and Applejack team up episodes? This is the third season in a row where there’s been a lot of focus on Rarity and Applejack being teamed up together. I remember seeing Rarity and Applejack hang around with some of their others friends, but now it seems the show is obsessed with these two being paired up.
I know in season five, there were a fair share of Rarity and Pinkie episodes, but the number of Rarity and Applejack episodes have gone up. Now I understand that these two being so radically different brings a lot of potential for stories and some good comedy. We have seen that before in the past with their other episodes. They do end up being a good dynamic and can play off each other well. If Honest Apple has proven something though, it’s that this team up has run out of steam.

Hard to Say Anything reivew
Love is a battlefield
These reviews do contain spoilers. Read at your own risk.

When it comes to the subject of romance, it has not exactly been the strongest suit for FiM. Even in the Equestria Girls series, the romance in that franchise was dreadful as we all saw. Sure we’ve had it be touched on before in Hearts and Hooves Day and A Canterlot Wedding, but the former kind of felt a little overly mushy and didn’t feel like a romance story, mostly because of the love potion used by the Cutie Mark Crusaders. Ironically enough, both of these romance driven episodes have Big Mac staring in them as well as the Cutie Mark Crusaders.
Hard to Say Anything unfortunately continues this trend of showing how romance isn’t one of the show’s strongest suits. An episode that basically explores another attempt of Big Mac hooking up with another mare with the CMC’s help. The only major difference this time is that it doesn’t involve any love poti

Parental Glideance review
The Parent Trap
These reviews do contain spoilers. Read at your own risk.

When I first heard about Parental Glideance, I was immediately filled with a sense of dread. Despite its synopsis saying we would be finally introduced to Rainbow Dash’s family, the red flags for this episode were popping up to me and it was looking to be like a disaster waiting to happen. Not only did it have a set up about the whole “embarrassing parents” plot line, but this episode also stars the Wonderbolts. Considering the last couple of seasons how the Wonderbolts have been handled, it didn’t help this episode at all.
I’m not against stories like embarrassing parents, but it’s hard to pull it off without you feeling exasperated at the end. The concept alone just didn’t sound good at all; esepcially when we are given the chance to see Rainbow’s parents and could ruin the long awaited arrival of them. So with all these bad signs together, I was rea

Forever Filly review
Oh, grow up!
These reviews do contain spoilers. Read at your own risk.

Throughout Friendship is Magic, we have seen the characters we’ve come to know and love grow and change over time. This is especially true to the Cutie Mark Crusaders, who have grown from being like little kids excited about finding their cutie marks to them getting their marks, and then finding their purpose and taking on a big challenge in helping others find their cutie marks. They’ve grown up and are no longer the little fillies we all saw the first time they all came together.
Forever Filly gives us a good insight into how much one of these three have changed and matured; Sweetie Belle. Now, in my opinion, Sweetie Belle has always been the most mature of the CMC. It may be because of Rarity’s influence, but Sweetie has always been mature in her own way and the smartest of the CMC by far; even back when the group first formed.
On top of that, it’s another Rarity and Sweetie

Fluttershy Leans in review
Animal House
These reviews do contain spoilers. Read at your own risk.

Fluttershy Leans in is arguably the hardest episode I’ve had to watch in a while. Not because the episode is dreadful, but because it left me very torn in so many ways. On one hand, there’s a lot going for it and its premise is good. On the other hand, you are left with some empty feeling at the end of it all. This is an episode that’s really hard to describe how badly it was done, but yet somehow still have some major good points too.
It’s a perfect example to show how far the character of Fluttershy has come. Since the very first episode of the show, we’ve seen her as timid and lives up to her namesake of being shy. However, this episode really gives us a good insight about how far Fluttershy has come since we’ve first seen her. Unfortunately, that’s as much credit as I’m willing to give this episode at all. Don’t get me wrong when I say this, but

Rock Solid Friendship review
Between a Rock and a Hard Place
These reviews do contain spoilers. Read at your own risk.

One of the many things I enjoy so much about FiM is this; the character growth. Over the last few seasons, we've seen various character grow up and move around from place to place. From the Cutie Mark Crusaders getting their cutie marks at last, to Starlight moving into Twilight's castle and learning about friendship, and to Rainbow joining the Wonderbolts. So in another attempt to shake things up and break status quo, we have an episode that introduces the possibility of another fan favorite character moving into Ponyville; Maud Pie.
If you have been under a rock the last few seasons (Pun totally intended), Maud is arguably the best Pie sibling of them all. She's stoic, but not heartless. She's obsessed with rocks to the point where she writes poetry about them. Not to mention that considering she can lift huge rocks and break them to pieces in mere seconds, she probably eats mountains for

Flurry of Emotions review
Adventures in Foalsitting 2: Electric Boogaloo
When Princess Flurry Heart was introduced, so many questions popped up. How can alicorn be born naturally? Why are her wings bigger than her body? Why did nopony put a magic prevention ring on her to stop her massive chaotic magical use? But, there was one question that quickly came to mind; when would we get the obligatory babysitting episode for her? The answer, not in season six, but in season seven they went with it. As soon as this episode was revealed, people immediately thought this would be a revisit of another episode in the past; Baby Cakes.
Depending on who you ask, Baby Cakes is either a good episode or one of the worst episodes. It's certainly an episode I don't really find that good to be honest. It had its moments, but it wasn't exactly a good episode to be honest. It was pretty boring and got annoying fast with how the babies were. Pinkie didn't really have a lot of funny moments in the episode at all.

Celestial Advice/All Bottled Up review
Graduation Day
Starlight Glimmer. What can honestly be said about her? Depending on who you ask, you'll get a lot of opinions on her. Some say she was welcome addition to the show. Others feel that she should have stayed a villain. If you're like me, you are part of that group where you are neutral towards Starlight. By no means do I hate Starlight, but I mostly am disappointed in how she was handled in season six.
While she had some strong moments such as No Second Prances or To Where and Back Again, it was overshadowed by Every Little Thing She Does or the recent MLP comic arc; Chaos Theory.  They barely did anything to explore more about Starlight's past such as how she formed "Our Town" and where she learned all this magic. But after it's said and done, Starlight left a mixed feeling in me towards her. So when it was decided that the season 7 opener would involve Starlight leaving Twilight and the others, it was a bit of a shock to be honest. It's n

Top Bolt review
I feel the need...the need for speed!
These reviews do contain spoilers. Read at your own risk.

When it comes to episodes involving the map of Equestria, I always look forward to them. It’s fun to see who teams up with who, and where our characters go. So far this season, we’ve had two solid episodes. The first being a Pinkie and Rarity one going to Canterlot which was a good episode; albeit Rarity was kind of being an idiot. Then we had Applejack and Fluttershy heading to Las Pegasus and an unexpected team up with them and the Flim Flam Brothers to take down a pony who was a con master and manipulator. So it’s only fitting that for this final map episode of the season, we get another team up we haven’t seen much of, Rainbow Dash and Twilight Sparkle.
Top Bolt presents this rather rather rare team up for these two. Both are sent to the Wonderbolts’ Academy to help two would be cadets with a friendship problem that actually has a very unique c

Pony Point of View (P.P.O.V.) review
The Blame Game
These reviews do contain spoilers. Read on at your own risk.

Often, when it comes to FiM, there have been few episodes showing the Mane 7 fighting against each other. Sure, we have had some episodes where they share some disagreements like Look Before you Sleep or Fall Weather Friends. However, we haven't really seen anything where they all have a major fallout between each other. I don't count Return of Harmony since that was Discord's doing.
Pony Point of View (P.P.O.V.) though offers such a story though. Admittedly, I was pretty interested since it had a big mystery about a trip going wrong. If anything, this sounded somewhat similar to Mmmmmystery on the Friendship Express. With Twilight taking the spotlight too to figure out the mystery, it sounded like a great concept for the episode. Unfortunately, what we get at the end of the day is a mystery that leaves far more questions than answers.

Equestria Girls: Legend of Everfree review
A camping we will go!
These reviews do contain spoilers. Read at your own risk.

In what has become a tradition now every year now, another new Equestria Girls movie has come out this fall. If you recall my last review of this franchise, you would know I considered it to be the worst Equestria Girls movie of them all. With a plot that’s so thinly stretched out, lack of characterization, and just being an overall bore, Friendship Games was a disaster in every way.
So after the failure of Friendship Games, it was decided it was time to get away from the high school setting. So where are we headed this time? Well, it’s time to head for another rather cliche setting involving a high school group; the summer camp. I will give it credit that at least we’re away from the high school setting at last and getting some form of exploring more of the human world. But after Friendship Games, I have had zero expectations and it’s been hard for me to

Another year has come and gone. 2016 certainly has been quite the wild ride hasn't it? So as we all reflect on this year and look back at it, there's only one thing to say about this year.

THANK GOD IT'S FINALLY OVER! Anybody out there who tells you that the journey is more important than the destination never had to go through a year like this!

2016 has, for a lack of better term, been utter garbage all the way through. If you really think about it, this year has been nothing shot of a complete and total mess. The Grim Reaper going on a rampage taking so many top stars (Carrie Fisher dying was the final straw for me.) A presidential election that people won't shut up about (especially mainstream media.) YouTube coming under fire for some of the crap they've put out such as YouTube Heroes and some other stuff. It's been a really miserable year all around with little good coming out of it. As bad as this year is though, there are a couple of good things at the end of it all.

1: Cleveland ends its championship drought after 52 years. I don't like the Cavs, but it was nice to see them finally win something for Cleveland after all this time.

2: The Cubs win the World Series. Not much into baseball, but I have a huge soft spot for the Cubbies. The final play was something I'll always remember and it was damn good to see the Cubs finally emerge at the top after 108 years.

3: Pokemon GO! It does have its issues, but I do like playing the game. I contribute this game to the reason my cardio is better than before. I just wish I could catch Lapras and Aerodactyl.

4: Pokemon Sun and Moon. I own Moon and it is a lot of fun. I started it not too long ago, and am having a great time with it. Being somebody who hasn't played a proper Pokemon game in years, it was nostalgic to me and I am enjoying the game so far.

5: Rogue One. As a huge Star Wars fan, this movie is the best way to bridge the events shortly before A New Hope. It does a great job telling us how the Rebels got the Death Star plans, and I enjoyed it immensely.If you haven't seen it yet, you owe it to yourself to sit down and watch it.  

Really, this year has just been a complete and total dumpster fire. We've all been affected in some way by 2016 and how terrible it's been. It did have a few minor highlights here and there, but this year has been nothing short of being dreadful. Hopefully 2017 can be better than this garbage. So with that, goodbye, 2016, and good fucking riddance.
