  • An excellent episode for all!

    This episode was a huge improvement over the last episode, Sonic Rainboom. It starts in Rarity's boutique and she is rushing to get some dresses finished while Sweetie Belle and the other Cutie Mark Crusaders getting ready to stay over at Rarity's for the night. Fluttershy though comes in and she offers to take the crusaders in for the night claiming she can handle them. At Fluttershy's cottage she and the CMC's play around. Fluttershy tries to keep them quiet, but they want to play around and look for their cutie marks. When they are forced into bed, the CMC's see that a chicken has gotten loose and decide to go hunt it down to bring it back home. Fluttershy sees that the CMC's aren't in bed and goes into the Everfree Forest to find them. While in the forest, Fluttershy runs into Twilight Sparkle who has turned into stone by the work of a creature called a cockatrice, a half chicken and half snake that can turn any creature into stone. The CMC's run into the cockatrice and Fluttershy comes in to rescue them. Fluttershy gives this move called, "The Stare" which causes the cockatrice to lose its nerve and is scared by Fluttershy and her yelling. The cockatrice is told to let all the animals go that it had frozen in stone. Twilight wakes up around Fluttershy and the CMC's and they all go back to the cottage. Fluttershy learns that she shouldn't have gotten in too deep and to not bite off more than you can chew. The episode ends with Rarity trying to get the CMC's to follow her, but Fluttershy comes and tells them to head home. This was a funny episode and a big improvement over the last one. I loved Sweetie's brief singing as well as Fluttershy's attempts to keep the girls quite and the CMC's acting like builders was hilarious as well. This was a great episode and one of the funniest yet.

    FINAL SCORE: 10/10moreless
  • Fluttershy volunteers to take of Applebloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo while Rarity is doing her work

    I thought that this was a superb episode of "My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic" and it was very enjoyable for the most part. The only thing I didn't like was that Applebloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo wouldn't listen to Fluttershy and I didn't like it when they sneaked out of the house and ran off to the forest. There were some funny parts in this episode. Fluttershy being good with Rarity's cat in the beginning of the episode was pretty funny. It was also good to learn that Sweetie Belle is Rarity's sister. I wouldn't surprised because they do look like that they are sister. Rarity is very busy with her work and she can't concentrate with Applebloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo running around the house so Fluttershy volunteers to take care of the three of them for Rarity. Fluttershy learns that taking care of kids is different from taking care of animals. The ending of the episode was funny when Applebloom, Sweetie Belle, and Scootaloo listened to Fluttershy which made Rarity surprised. Overall, a superb episode of "My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic". 9/10moreless
