  • A very hilarious episode for all to enjoy

    Like Dragonshy and The Ticket Master, I consider this episode to be in my top 5 best episodes list and one of the funniest. It starts off with Rarity trimming some tree branches, but Applejack tears them down and tells Rarity that a storm is coming and the branches will cause damage. As the storm is created, tensions rise between Applejack and Rarity to the point they decide to start hurting each other. The storm begins and it leaves both ponies stranded under a park bench. Twilight Sparkle invites the two ponies into her library until the storm passes by. Twilight decides that since Spike is away in Canterlot and that her friends are here, they have a slumber party. Twilight goes through a book on slumber parties and her, Rarity, and Applejack do fun stuff together. They have a pillow fight, do beauty treatments, and do smores. All the while though Rarity and Applejack fight each other in these activities. When it's time for bed Applejack and Rarity fight over the bed and Twilight has had enough and scolds them for their behavior. All of a sudden a tree crashes through a window and now the ponies need to get rid of it. Twilight looks through a book while Rarity is picking up stuff and Applejack tries to move the tree. Applejack pleads with Rarity to help, but she still refuses to. Applejack then apologizes to her for how she acted and pleads for her help. Rarity helps Applejack push the tree out of the way and both ponies save the library. They both then apologize for how they acted and make up. Twilight learns that even friends with two different ways of life can get along and the episode ends with the ponies laughing as the sky clears up. This was a hilarious episode. While most of the Mane 6 and Spike were missing, it's make up for it well. I loved the pillow fight scene out of all the argument scene and the truth or dare one was great as well and I loved the moral of this episode. Overall a great moral for all and hilarity from start to finish, this is a perfect episode.



    FINAL SCORE: 10/10moreless
  • Don't judge a book by it's frilly, polka dot cover. In this case, don't think ponies are for just girls and little kids.

    This show cut no corners with their animation methods, or their star studded writing staff that helped bring classics like, "The Powerpuffgirls", to life. One might think this show is just made to give Hasbro toy sales a boost, but in reality, it is far from that with surprisingly deep character development, fluid and exciting animation, and a talented voice cast. One thing is for sure, I never expected something that came in such a girly package, could be so entertaining and fun.

    This episode has the characters of Applejack, who at heart is a typical tomboy. Rarity who is a girl who is all about vanity, and Twilight who's fun and games innocence has a charm all on it's own. The show excels are creating great visuals and attention to detail in character development. The actor portray their characters perfectly and the character expressions and animations are as cute as they come. Possibly some of the most cute designs I can remember.

    The episode had a fun plot line that goes at a good clip, and even has a good moral message at the end. While the message is overused, they portray unique methods only a pony could go through, but at the same time relate to humans. When it comes down to it though, the story has been done before by others many times. But what makes this unique is how great the animation and characters really are.

    I am greatly impressed by this show, which is sadly on a channel which won't give it the best viewership counts. It has a lot of potential as a show.moreless

    I thought that this was an excellent episode of "My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic". It's definitely one of the best of the season. I loved everything about this episode and the story was well executed thanks to the brilliant and creative writers. The plot is about when Applejack and Rarity were arguing with each other, they were gonna go their separate ways until a severe windstorm came. Applejack and Rarity then run to Twilight's house are stuck there until the windstorm is over. This gives Twilight the opportunity to have her first ever slumber party which makes Twilight excited but Applejack and Rarity don't like the idea since they can't get along. Applejack and Rarity fighting and arguing with each other was actually pretty and it's not annoying like most of the best friends fighting episodes. Applejack and Rarity fighting over the bed was pretty humorous as well. I also liked how Applejack and Rarity were working together. Overall, this was an excellent episode of "My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic" and it was very enjoyable in my opinion. 10/10moreless

    • Applejack: I'm mighty sorry, Twilight.
      Twilight Sparkle: It's. . . well, it's not okay! There's a giant tree branch in the middle of my bedroom, and the book doesn't say anything about having a giant tree branch at your slumber party, or at least I haven't found that entry yet. . .

    • Applejack: I'd like to tell y'all the terrifying tale of the prissy ghost who drove everypony crazy with her unnecessary neatness! Oowoowoowoowoowoowoo! I'm sure y'all are familiar with that one.
      Rarity: Never heard of it, but I have a much better one. It's the horrifying story of the messy, inconsiderate ghost who irritated everypony within a hundred miles! Oowoowoowoo!
      Applejack: That's not a real story! You made it up!
      Rarity: It is a ghost story. They're all made up.

    • Twilight Sparkle: Let's see what our next fun, fun, fun thing is, shall we? (checks book) Hmm, what does this mean? "Pillow fight"?
      Rarity: Oh, please. I am not at all interested in participating in something so crude... (gets hit in the face by a pillow) Oh! It. Is. On!

    • Applejack: Whoa, nelly. Is inside a tree really the best place to be in a lightning storm?
      Twilight Sparkle: It is if you have a magical lightning rod protecting your home like I do. Come on in!

    • Rarity: You know, there's "messy", and there's "just plain rude."
      Applejack: You know, there's "fussy", and there's "just plain gettin' on mah nerves!"
