FiM S9 E20 "A horse shoe in"
« on: September 18, 2019, 08:41:58 PM »
I like all Starlight eps (yes, even the one where she is a bad Mr. Scrooge stand-in  :P) so I am biased.

Trixie expects Starlight to give her a certain position at the School of Friendship just because she is friends with Starlight while Starlight herself wants to find the best pony for the job based on an audition process.

But I liked it regardless.

Starlight Glimmer should be a princess instead of Twilight, change my mind.

She's was a cult leader and terrorist.  Though, Twilight's resume isn't exactly glowing, even compared to that.

I haven't seen it, might skip it unless I stumble across it in Netflix binging.
Man, I wish this season had more interesting eps. I love the StarTrix dynamic but we should have had some uh. Better eps.

I thought it was a good episode, even though I really dislike the school overall and pretty much anything to do with it. It was a fun episode regardless.

I do like how they took Trixie from a minor villain with 2  episodes and over the last few seasons developed her into a likable character.

Yep, Trixie is a good example on how you do fan favorite well. It also helps they broke her away from always hanging out with all fan faves, which is the worst to me (the music ponies share a house, Muffin and Whooves are friends, Lyra and BonbonDrops are a couple, etc...)

Her friendship to Starlight was also introduced really well with Starlight having to make friends and meeting Trixie by chance, realizing they have lots in common.
Add the little bit of meta when both of them tried to reform the changeling guy and they told him proudly that they are both reformed villains and understand his motivations :lol:
I just really got to enjoy Trixie together with Starlight.
Starlight in general was the best reformed villain to me because she was shown to be actively remorseful over and over again, trying to better herself and failing but still kept her slightly snarky personality. She wasn't turned into a doormat like Sunset Shimmer. Sunset and Starlight had also great chemistry in that one EqG special and I wish they would have met more often.
Two ex-evils trying to do the right thing, add in Trixie and you got three. They were always such a nice break from the "our friendship is the core of Equestria's future" M6.

In my never dying hopes for G5 I wish they'd have Sunset, Starlight and Trixie back as a trio of friends and mix species a little. I'd be happy. Sunset would make for a great pegasus, Starlight could be magically talented Earth and Trixie, a unicorn who makes up for low magic with her shows. Perfect replacement for the Cutie Matk Crusaders :P

The ending cracked me up, I gotta say. I still don't like the whole "Twilight replacing the Royal Sisters" plot but Sunburst, Trixie and Starlight running the school makes sense - personally, I think they should've done that from the start. The mane 6 are way too busy with their careers to be believably teaching/running a school. But hey, better late than never!

Now they just need to hire Sunset, Moondancer and Fizzlepop to the school staff.
Will trade my soul for a Sunset Shimmer blindbag

Moondancer would make way more sense than auditioning

Speaking of Miss Fizzlepop "Tempest" Berrytwist... it's a shame they didn't bring her back for an episode. They could have just gotten a different voice actress. I still want to know her cutiemark :P

This week we learn about nepotism.  ^.^

And I guess the solution in "Student Counsel" was rather short-lived.  :huh:

I had fun with this episode, but I have a few nitpicks.
I'm still not on board with Big Mac's two word vocabulary, Trixie was a little too oblivious, and Starlight learning the moral at the end was hard to swallow. I dunno, but seeing Twilight smug like that always rubbed me the wrong way. Also, seriously, was Sunburst's role of "crystaller" ever explained?

It was pretty cool to see Doctor Whooves (coughtimeturnercough) and Octavia have speaking roles again. Though I felt the explanation for their dropping out of the hiring process was weak.

Starlight is still very likable, and I just loved her cutesy voice she was giving to Phyllis.  :P
And it really is admirable to see Trixie stand up to Grandpa Gruff like that. Gallus needs the support.
They: You're too old to watch that show!
Me: Can't hear ya, I'm asleep.

Kazumi Evans aka Rarity's singing voice and leader of the Dazzlings was Octavia and it made me sad she only did a bit part. I love her voice and would have loved to hear her more often, not just as Rarity. She's got such a beautiful voice, seriously I am fangirling this woman.
