MLP:FiM Season 9, Episode 15 - "2, 4, 6, Greaaat"
« on: August 19, 2019, 07:09:27 AM »
I like that we skipped 2 4 6 Great. I had a whole rant ready to post, but I think just not acknowledging it whatsoever is better.
Yeah, I was going to do this sooner, but I got a bad case of procrastination.

Anywho, the title could easily be read in a sarcastic tone, and that's very fitting as this episode is not a pleasant watch at all. If you wanted more reason to dislike Rainbow Dash, you've gotten a lot more.
I am trying to see it from her perspective; that it would be frustrating to be pulled aside to be part of something you don't care for when something you love is going on next door. But unfortunately this throws quite a bit of continuity and character development right out the window. At the same time though, has Rainbow ever really had any solid growth in her character lately? I hear a lot of people say that this isn't what she's normally like and that it's out of character. But, is it really? She's been a self-centered jerk numerous times, so it's hard to say.

I'm baffled we got two Buckball episodes this seasons, and I still see the sport as nothing but glorified pony pong.  XP
This is also probably the most focus we've had on Snips probably season 1. And you know it's embarrassing when Snips is the reasonable one compared to their coach.
I'm still not a big fan of Smolder, but I can appreciate her seeing right through Dash's bull-putty.
Twilight pulling a Celestia at the end is a little amusing. Even she knows that Rainbow Dash is a bratty child at heart that refuses to grow up.  :P
It's a little off-putting that Celestia's magic school students who were kind of at a disadvantage still won at the end.
Lastly, on a similar note, is everypony just deathly afraid of balls?
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
Overall, unimpressive and rather mean-spirited episode, not even very entertaining unlike the next episode.

They: You're too old to watch that show!
Me: Can't hear ya, I'm asleep.

Fluttershy does a "Concerned Pony" face for a second near the top of the episode.  :)

I’m so sad that these are the episodes they are putting out for the final season! They’ve all been pretty much lackluster, and the characters so unlikeable! Every episode feels like there’s a character so out of place that it’s unharmonious! Just my opinion, I’m very disappointed in this season, but I’m holding out for the season finale!
