So I just saw Hoof Done It?, and it was a lot of fun.
The fact that the best MYM episodes have been Zipp episodes just reinforces that she’s the best pony. She totally shines when she’s given something to do other than say “Note to self”.
I don’t know what was in that tea Izzy drinks, but I want some. I also want more “Weird Izzy” in general. With this episode, all of The Mane Five now have jobs.
That was a good one. More like this and 3, please!
I also saw Have You Seen This Dragon?, and it was quite good.
Is it me, or did the animation get a lot better in the last two episodes? The textures are a lot better, and the way things move has a lot more personality.
You know what? I’m sold on Sparky and Daddy Hitch. He’s left his comfortable bachelor life, and embraced fatherhood. That’s a great direction to take his character.
The dialogue is a lot better, too. Izzy is embracing her inner Pinkie, and they’re bringing back that dry humour that I love so much.
And then there’s Opaline. She’s been calm and collected, and even a little bit motherly (in her own twisted way). But that scene honestly left an impression on me. One hit of power, and the façade just drops and she becomes unhinged. Misty lives with this pony, and I think this is the first time we’ve seen her genuinely terrified.
I’m kind of hyped now. Episode 3 was genuinely great, and I think MYM is really starting to hit it’s stride with 7 and 8. For comparison, I’d say two out of every thirteen episodes in G4 hit the “Genuinely great” rating, so the ratio is only slightly lower.
