Doctor Who 4×16: The Waters of Mars

This one was honestly pretty good, though these specials, geez, why weren’t they just part of the season?

Twilight Time

I’ve figured out what went wrong in Filli Vanilli: there’s nothing at stake. If Fluttershy doesn’t indulge her sudden, slightly contradictory desire to perform covertly, what is lost? Rarity puts it best: “It’s a shame to waste such a talent.” Yes, … Continue reading

Doctor Who 4×15: The Planet of the Dead

Man, why couldn’t all the tenth Doctor’s episodes have been this fun? No moping, no brooding, just an episode where you can tell David Tennant is having the time of his life.

Doctor Who 4×11: Turn Left

For some reason I was thinking this was going to be a three-parter. And I mean, it almost is, but this is more just a prelude to the finale, so…

Rarity Takes Manehattan

So I’ve come to the conclusion that Bats! is a mediocre episode ruined by an execrable song. Like, that song is physically painful to listen to, so I’m going to never watch that episode ever again so long as I can help … Continue reading

Episode talk: Three’s a Crowd

This doesn’t cover the whole thing, but I’ve recently figured out at least one part of Three’s a Crowd that bothers me.
