Tomorrow Guys! Season 8 Starts Tomorrow!

Edit: Just watched the episode! That was really good for an opener especially the new characters. All of them were likable and really made me want to know more about them. I love how just right off the bat they came out swinging with explaining the movie lore and making it explicit canon. Along with giving us an update on what Tempest is doing which was really nice. Chancellor Neighsay was actually an interesting character it's obviously never explicitly stated that he is racist but they made it about as clear as they could in a kid's show without it being a "very special episode". The song was very catchy and I loved Ember telling everyone to stop singing at the end of the second one.

The one thing I didn't like/thought was a bit stupid was none of the leaders seem to be looking for the students before the Mane 6 came along and talk to them. That was the one misstep I think that the episodes made. It made them seem like they didn't care too much and it was a bit weird that they all wanted to go straight to war once they got in front of Celestia because of that. Except of course Thorax who was at least somewhat reasonable, I love how he is still super awkward and doesn't really seem to know what he is doing, it's cute. Overall I would give this one a 9/10 I think it managed everything really well nothing seemed too rushed and all the characters were well used and balanced.

As for the new students, I would rank them right now like this:
1. Silverstream
2. Gallus
3. Smolder
4. Yonda
5. Ocellus
6. Sandbar

I was nervous, but I really liked it! I haven't been a fan of the direction the show has taken (not enough to keep me from enjoying it, mind you), but I think this is a step in the right direction. If they want to explore the world beyond just the ponies, I think some fairly constant characters who aren't ponies (other than Spike, who's basically a pony) is a great idea.

I loved it. I love the new characters. If they're what people mean when they say it's moving on to gen 5 I'm cool with it. also interesting is the shift to a main six with 2 males. speaking of, Gallus' puppydog eyes were great. but would they be called kittybird eyes or birdiecat eyes?

So...I watched the S8 premiere...and after it was all finished all I could think about was how Chanceller Neighsayer kept saying things like "Those creatures" and "their kind"...and I couldn't help but think it was an MLP version of racism.

RACISM, guys. Frickin' RACISM.

MLP. DID. FRICKING. RACISM.

Ok, the newest episode just finished and I thought it was pretty good. Not as good as the opener but still good. Mudbrier was interesting but I feel like we didn't get enough of him outside of his relationship with Maud to get a feel for him really. Pinkie was the clear star of this episode and she carried it well. I loved the scene back at the farm it was nice to see Limestone and Marble again and it gave Limestone some subtle development; a bit sad Marble didn't really do anything though. Pinkies opposite hallucinations of her friends were great especially Twilight that one got me good. The part in the beginning at the comedy club was nice just goes to show how blind Pinkie is when it comes to Maud sometimes.

I also loved the new intro! I almost thought they weren't going to use it and the leak had just been an idea that had been floated around the offices there. I'm glad they changed it though it really needed a major shake-up IMO. Overall I would give this episode 7/10 it needed more with Mudbrier outside of the relationship with Maud but overall it was pretty good.

I wasn't a huge fan. I just don't really like Maud, her boyfriend is annoying and they never really show any redeeming qualities other than just telling us to trust he has them. And next to such dull characters, Pinkie Pie goes from perky to annoying.

I thought the newest episode was a blast. I was kind of worried that it was going to be rather boring at first when I saw what it was about but it turned out way better than I thought. Fluttershy was great in this one I loved all her personalities. All of the characters we met were fun and it was nice to see the return of some of the background ponies from before. Rarity going to everyone else before going to Fluttershy was funny. The raccoons were really cute and I loved how much they cared for Fluttershy and how Rarity had gotten so used to them she basically considers them employees. Overall I would give this one a 8/10 really good episode with a ton of fun jokes and cute moments.

I'm not a fan of "one major character suddenly becomes a big jerk" episodes. But I did really enjoy Rarity firing Fluttershy three times.

EDIT: Oh fun, now a "Rainbow Dash is suddenly an idiot" episode. :P There were some fun scenes at least but these kinds of episodes get a little old, no pun intended!

Well, that episode was cute. Not that amazing but cute. I liked how Lyra and Bonbon were clearly on a date throughout the whole episode that was a nice background thing. It was great to go back to Las Pegasus and learn a little more about it than we knew before. I actually enjoyed Granny Smith and the others more than I thought I would and Applejack popping up all the time as a disembodied head kept making me think about a fanfic I'm reading called Austraeoh. Overall though it was just a cute little episode with some laughs here and there nothing great but not terrible either. 6/10 just because it kept making think of Austraeoh.

fun tidbit: I follow an MLP storyboarder on Tumblr and they storyboarded this episode.
after it aired, when asked:

Did you notice that one of the stage magicians bared an eerie resemblance to a certain great and powerful show-mare in Ponyville (possible father (or at least, relative of some sort))?

their response was:

take that to mean what you will. I know I have :3

I think some old non-canon book said that Trixie's father is a stage magician. It's probably her dad!

Applejack did not deserve that wink in the sun at the end, all it needed was for RD, Granny Smith and the gals to go to her and say "Applejack, we need to talk"...that's all it needed, then the episode would've been perfectly fine. Nothing spectacular, but nothing really flawed about it either.

Ok, that episode was great. The best one so far IMO. Terramar was great and it was very nice to see both seaquestria and Mount Eris again. Terramar's mom and dad were both entertaining I enjoyed how enthusiastic his dad was about everything. The song was very nice I think it will be one of the more memorable ones.This was a great way to basically handle the concept of divorce in the show (which come on that is exactly what this episode is about) it did it very very well. Twilight was just a huge dork the whole time which I always love everytime it happens. Overall I would give this one a 9/10 very well done and a great way to handle something pretty heavy in a kids show.

Edit: I liked this one, it was nice to see Celestia get some screen time again and while it wasn't much it did give us some backstory on her and Equestria. I like how in the end it showed off how effective of a leader she is and good she is at inspiring ponies. I think it went a little overboard showing how bad of an actress she is. Acting is hard but for someone who has been around so long, she shouldn't be that clueless about acting. It is something you can learn, acting classes exist for a reason. I really liked Twilight little talk she had with Celestia and the fact that Celestia was angry about the lying rather than the fact that blew up about her acting. Also, Applejack and Spike nearly steal the whole episode away they were great. Overall though I would give this one an 8/10 really good and I like it when Celestia gets the spotlight.

Oh man, this episode was great! Sunburst prancing in place and getting all excited was super adorable. Sire's Hollow was an interesting place and both the parents were both annoying but likable at the same time. By the end of the episode, I liked both of them. I liked the side shop character figuring out the issue and the way Sunburst and Glimmer played off each other was nice. I liked Glimmers room, she had some kind of Emo/Metal teenage phase. Also, I think this is the first time they have had any of the character outright state they are adults IIRC. Sunburst trying to run away after thinking they solved the friendship problem was cute and i liked how they addressed their parents in the end kind of how I think Parental Glidance should have ended. Overall 10/10 best of the season so far IMO.

Just watched Non-Compete Clause. It was ok. It felt very much like a season 1 or 2 episode. Honestly, the Student Six were the best part of the episode by far. Rainbow Dash and AJ were borderline out of character most of the time mostly towards the end honestly. If the student six had been right and they were actually trying to show them what not to do in order to teach them the episode would have been good but they weren't so it's the first truly bad episode of the season. 4/10 IMO mostly for the student six who were really fun to watch. Oh well every season has to have its bad ones.

Edit: This episode was great! I was expecting this one to just be kind of boring and average but it was way better than I expected. I feel that Discord and Spike were amazing in this episode and it was really nice to see Big Mac emote so much. While the basic plot was pretty standard RomCom/Sitcom fare. I think it did it pretty well and it's pretty good for someone's introduction to this kind of plot like it would be for a lot of kids watching this show. After watching and hearing a few people talk about this episode I think it is important to remember that point. Yeah, it's been done before but most of the target audience hasn't seen this kind of plot a million times most likely so it works nicely on that level. Honestly, that is how I judge a lot of things on this show and always have. It was cool to see the rest of the mail team and Derpy again. Along with yet another confirmation that Lyra and Bon Bon are a couple. Big Mac drownding himself in Cider was funny and I liked the CMC B plot it was really cute. Overall I would give this one an easy 8/10
