New American episode time! The final Daring Do episode of the series. This one was pretty good honestly, not to much worse than the other Daring Do episodes. I liked that it looked at the other side of things but I have to admit that Ahuizotl's reformation is way less believable than that of Cabalaron. His first episode showed him clearly as a bad guy and while I can think of a few reasons that he might do what he tried to do and still be a good guy its pretty odd and weak IMO. Fluttershy was honestly the highlight of the episode she was great throughout the whole thing. It makes sense that she would be the one to want to listen to others compared to Rainbow Dash she even pointed out why Daring Do might not be as virtuous as she thinks she is. Daring Do realizing that she might have been in the wrong even if she was doing things for a good reason, at least to her, was nice. I also really liked the ending that was expected but cute as well.Overall I would give this one a 7.5/10 Pretty good overall.

Edit: New episode time! This one was good. Nothing amazing but pretty good. The CMC not being able to go on their own is a little weird IMO, and why didn't they ask Scootaloos Aunts? (likely the episode was written before Last Crusade) Outside of that though the premise was good and I liked the song quite a bit. I liked the return of creepy ticket pony. Them getting lost in the swamp was funny and I liked a lot of that scene. The two new characters were good. I understood where both of them were coming from even if Biscuit was clearly wrong.

The new animal was interesting and I liked how it turns into a massive tornado, I loved that nod to Wizard of Oz they had as well. The ending was expected but maybe could have used a cut away to Twilight and Fluttershy realizing what had happened rather than just them randomly showing up.
Overall a pretty good episode 7.5/10 much like the last one.

I just wonder why they didn't ask Pinkie Pie, taking them to a fair seems right up her alley. unless they explained that and i missed it.

In a surprise to basically no one who pays attention to how popular these kinds of things are The Comics are doing an official Season 10 Continuation. I will be picking these up for sure to see how they are.

Edit: Time for the newest American Episode! The Big Mac Question is one of the best episodes of the season for sure.I liked the interview process that they were doing with everyone telling parts of the story. Tons of nice little references one to Star Trek, and even one to the comics somewhat with the apples. LYRA AND BONBON IS OFFICIALLY CANON! In the words of Thor "I knew it!" I am so glad this finally happened. Both Sugar Belles and Big Mac's ideas for proposing were cute though completely over the top honestly. Ms. Cake was a bit stupid to take on all of that at such a short notice. Discord was his usual self and great as always.Overall I would give this one a 10/10 one of the best of the season as I said. Only one week remains guys all three final episodes air on the 12th.

Part Of The Journey Is The End

Ok finale time! I really enjoyed the heck out of this finale. Tons of great stuff in it. Some not so great things as well.I think the Discord twist wasn't well done even if it was far from the worst twist I've seen. Glimmer was a complete badflank the whole time, seriously elevated her in my eyes in the end. Loved her fight with Chrysalis that was sooo good. Cozy Glow was a pretty good throughout as well I liked her chaos powered form. Terik was being the most logical of the three as usual.

The Avengers Assemble style scene was absolutely epic and I loved the fact that Queen Novo, Skystar, Tempest and Capper all ended up showing back up. No Captain Celaeno and the Parrot Pirates though I'm gonna actually ask about that if I can catch Big Jim's Q&A tomorrow. I'm glad they all got turned to stone honestly it is one of the major things that MLP has over Steven Universe. It is willing to admit some people just need some punishment and they can't really be rehabilitated.

Lyra and Bon Bon finally got married which was nice. I want to see some of the things in those stain glasses. Guess the season 10 comics will deal with them though. The future stuff was great I loved seeing the grown up Student Six and Cake Twins (the CMC we had already seen). I guess Granny and Goldie are gone now since AJ and Apple Bloom were wearing their scarfs. Not too surprising. That final song got me hard, every time I watched the finale I cried when I heard it. That is going to get bronies going for years to come I think.Overall I'm gonna rate episode 24 a 8/10 the twist brings it down. episode 25 a 9/10 and 26 a 9/10. Overall the combined finale (which is the way it's meant to be watched as that is how they premiered it.) is a 9.5/10 only a few small things bring it down from being a perfect 10/10

And that is all they wrote for now on Friendship is Magic it was a great ride and I can't wait to see what's next.

You're Gonna Carry That Weight

Edit: By the way if I were to rank the seasons it would be like this
1. Season 4
2. Season 5
3. Season 2
4. Season 7
5. Season 9
6. Season 1
7. Season 8
8. Season 3
9. Season 6

I'm a fan of all the shipping fanservice in the final episodes. Pinkie and Cheese was a no brainer, not sure if AppleDash was 100% confirmed but they definitely were bickering like an old married couple, same idea with Fluttercord. my one gripe with that song was that it missed 2 chances at fun callbacks cause Rarity's verse said her element and Dash's said "big adventure" like she does in the opening and i'd have liked one of those to carry to all of them.

According to leaked material (and somewhat implied by Big Jims Q&A)AppleDash and Fluttercord were intentionally implied and both are thought to be canon by I think the whole staff IIRC.

Well, it looks like this ride is back on even earlier then I thought it would be. My Little Pony: Pony Life A new show is coming in 2020. Now I know a lot of people are already dismissing this right away based on the art style alone but I'm not going to do that. While it isn't my favorite art style it doesn't mean it is going to be bad. I will be giving this one a fair shot when it comes out I need to see a few episodes to really judge it.

Oh that's really great! I couldn't tell the latter was intended but that's cool!

I don't think I said it here, but I really liked the episode! It was a great ending of the game. I cried a little.

Well, everyone, the solicits for Season 10 are out! Season 10 Episode 1 We are going to finally explore The Zebra homeland! Also Tempest Shadow and Rockhoof join the party for this one as well! And finally Twilight is now going by the title Queen. Which I find super interesting. I can't wait for this one and to see what they have in store for us with the rest of season 10.

Transformers/Friendship is Magic Crossover comic coming in November YES! It's about time this happened I'm actually shocked this took them so long to do actually, it's such a perfect crossover. I am a huge, absolutely massive, sucker for crossovers so this is going to be right up my alley. The only way this could be better was if it was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Friendship is Magic.

Here is Clip Show #3 This one is Fluttershy's and I think it is easily the best of the ones so far it feels the most like an actual episode of the show. Pinkies episode comes in a close second though.

Edit: Also Them's Fighting Herds released their 1.0 update a few days ago! So if you haven't picked it up now is the best time. Its come along way from being an MLP fan game that got C&D'd

Pony Life Trailer I don't know exactly how I feel about this right now. I don't think it looks that terrible but I feel like I need to think about this more.

Edit: Character Introductions Honestly, the more I see from this show the less worried I am about it. It doesn't look amazing but it looks like it isn't going to be as bad as everyone predicted.

The first episodes of Pony Life Well here they are everyone. I personally enjoyed them its, not the best thing ever and not on the level of FIM but I have seen worse honestly even from MLP. Not going to be for everyone but I think I can get some occasional enjoyment out of this until G5 hits

Episodes 3 and 4 of Ponylife So far the show is just ok honestly. It's short enough that IMO it doesn't overstay its welcome. I feel if this was 22 minutes I wouldn't be able to stand it, but than again maybe it would be better since they would get to flesh things out more.
