I take it back.

Still a very well written episode, and even better on rewatch. Song’s lyrics impressed me this time.

That was a pretty boring episode, not much going on there.

Maybe it'll get better after rewatching it a few times.

Episode is nice with lovely world-buidling derived from the movie. But also rather heavy-handed allegory for the pain and trauma of parents divorcing. If only divorce was as simple as setting up a neutral location on the shore where both sides of the family could meet and mingle.

Said it before when I first watched it, and I'll say it again now: sweetie belle was goddamned adorable in this episode.

Really best episode of the season by far so far (Which is good, since its been pretty meh so far...), but a great one.
Love the little touches like the hippogryphs (damnit, I keep wanting to call them Griffons out of habit), and it functions as a great infodump for the movie for those who didn't see it (and chuckled at AB saying AJ defeated the storm king).

9/10.

The lyrics honestly just get by on account of sweetie belle and Scootaloo being goddamned adorable in them :p

The lyrics just get by? Jeez, Luis, look at the rhyme patterning! Heck, the first four lines even scan: ABAB, alternating strict-iambic 7-meter and 5-meter. The new screenwriter made a difference.

Your heart is in two places, you can only live in ONE
You're torn between the hilltops and the TIDE.
Thank goodness that the Cutie Mark Crusaders have BEGUN
To give you hope and help you to deCIDE

These hills, they call to you, they say "Harmonizing Heights"
This is your home, simple and seRENE--
The sun-dappled leaves or a mountain terrace;
You can SEE
Twenty-THREE
Different shades of GREEN!

To DARE
To comPARE
AnyWHERE
To THERE
Is unFAIR and just plain wrong
Colt or MARE
Or you WEAR
Feathers, fins, or HAIR,
This is WHERE you belong

Seaquestria's the MOST, you're supPOSED to be there
Underneath the sea where you can feel at HOME,
Swimmin' with your FRIENDs, you can SPEND all DAY HERE
Playin' in the BAY HERE,
Splashin' in the FOAM

Sailin' THROUGH
The wavy BLUE
You'll VIEW
A SLEW of TORTOISES;
Forget the REST,
The sea's the BEST
For all intents and PORPOISES!

Build your nest here on Harmonizing Heights
Live it up here in Seaquestria
Nothing compares to Harmonizing Heights

The EAGLES are REGAL
But the SCHOOLS 'RE COOLER
Their CLAWS are so AWESome
With their sweet manEUVERS
STAR WISHes every NIGHT
STARFISH by eel LIGHT

BETTER
WETTER
SHINIER
BRINIER

Seaquestria!
Harmonizing Heights!
Seaquestria!
Harmonizing Heights!

That's it! This is the END!
Don't ever talk to me AGAIN!

I don't know, it just doesn't do it for me like "Open up your eyes" or art of the dress.
Like, I like it and love the "music video" portion of it (the animation and visual juxtposition are incredible), but just listening to it without the visuals doesn't have as much emotional impact as other songs.

The end lyrics really segue well into the next part of the story/plot though.

It may rhyme well but it sounded rather bumpy. It's better read than sung.

Anyway, after rewatching I found it to be a pretty uneventful episode.

That railway track to Mt. Aeris was built pretty quickly though. And as generally Equestria seems to rely on single-tracks I want to see a passing loop at some point.

I dunno, I actually liked listening to it being sung. Maybe I'm just weird, but it could even be that the bumpiness is what helps me find it fun and charming.

to sell toys, basically. hasbro wants to advertise the friendship express because there's a toy out of it, and there's not really anyone on the staff that cares enough to fight for different trains.

Though we did get the really neat crystal empire one a few seasons ago in three's a crowd.

I do miss the little touch of that train in S1 that was pulled by ponies..

>>36828551
its mainly the enthusiasm of the VA's that sell it honestly. Scoots and SB's actors were really into this episode.

I think they figured out themselves that the ponies pulling the train with an actual steam engine was just a silly gag that made no sense.

>>36828555
its makes as much sense as pony pulled taxis :p

I think it added a nice bit of charm to the show-- but that was before all the modern tech started getting put in (remember, they had things like lightning bugs for lights before electric light bulbs, ect.)

>>36828556
The taxis make perfect sense because they are just carriages. And just like people ponies can be too lazy to walk so they take one; and someone has to pull it.

The train would have made sense too if it didn't have an engine in fron that made pulling it themselves unnecessary.

the egregious thing here about the train is that both Lemonhearts and Twinkleshine were on it, and Twilight didn't even acknowledge their existence.

What gets me about the Friendship express is that the toy had Pinkie Pie conducting it which seems fucking terrifying.
