Yeah. Yeah it kinda is. She’s an obnoxious nanny half the time. Always treating her friends like she’s babysitting them.

Glimglam was good in this one. Twilight, Cozy Glow, and the CMC all appeared to have been lobotomized.

And, say-- how could anyone not be interested in the history of radishes (http://www.vegetablefacts.net/vegetable-history/radish-history/)? Who knew, for instance, that Dec. 23 is known as the
"Night of the Radishes" in Oaxaca? Fascinating.

This episode only serves to raise far more questions about Twilight's cult than we had before. If the Equestrian Educational system were like American politics, Twilight and her school would be Donald Trump.

Just watched.

As soon as i started watching i saw what was coming..

They wanna join school, starlight is the guidance counselor... Starlight CMC ep! Yes!

Then twilight got in the way... I really felt starlights sigh on that one.

But the dead poet society, repeaty-belle and the whole applebloom fake argument gag was great.

The new pony reminded me of that crazy girl from the aristocats haha im glad she didnt end up that way.

Glad she went to starlight, who is amazing btw. The whole startlight trying to act professional was funny (pic related) and again, she was the voice of reason.

Then the transition between the cmc at school to twilights office was exceptionaly funny ^_^.

I still really want a starlight cmc episode now way bad, the hype i felt was real.

I hope they fly kites.

Theory? Twilight runs an institution that pretends to be a school, where she has absolute say in all matters, has no oversight, no standards to adhere to, no superiors to report to, can hire whoever she wants on a whim. And they don't learn things like math or history, just friendship and how to idolize the Mane 6 as the chosen perfect friends led by the Princess of Friendship herself (even reminding students of this in written tests). Students live on campus, far from their families, guided only by the staff at the school.

It's not a school by any means. And it's 100% a cult. And also, vaguely like a correctional facility?

I was planning to make a thread about this tomorrow, but maybe now there's no point.

That episode was way better than I had expected. Lots of fun little tidbits in it that made a good chuckle.

What's a shame is that Mr. Cake seems to have pretty much disappeared from the show - you only see Mrs. Cake nowadays.

And they got a "your mom" joke in, that alone was worth it.

Pretty horrible. Honestly one of the weakest episodes this season, and that's SAYING SOMETHING.

Now, the CMC were kind of cute in the first half, so I can give it decent markst here. but it took a total nosedive about 8 minutes in.
I don't give much of a shit about cozy glow apart from her hairstyle reminding me of darla dimple; her personality is bland as hell, and just nothing about her endears herself to me (Like Starlight/sunburst's parents did or even Wall flower from the last EQG special).

Hell, that ending felt forced too-- it would have worked out just as well if not better if she had just gone to twilight and told her her real reasons instead of forcing in starlight as a middle man.


bleh. one of the weakest yet, sad after molt down.

>>36828815
too generous. This one was a real nose dive in quality; 4/10 is the highest I'd give it.

it doesn't even compare that favorably with non-compete clause, and that one is HORRIBLE.

>>36828827
Going to be honest, with those answers, I don't understand how twilight could pin this on "the CMC taught her wrong" and not "This filly is an idiot"?
I mean, seriously, those answers are basically "Just taking a piss", not "Wrong".

>>36828833
>>36828834
Could only be so lucky, that was a very good villain; this girl... I honestly don't really see much potential as a character in her.

Still can't believe this is what we get for a S8 "villain" for the finale. Like WTF.

If nothing else, I thought Cozy was going to be evil from the moment I saw her. For a bit I actually kinda thought she was Starlight in disguise.

Good day to you SIR!

>>36828851
I would have enjoyed her WAAAAY more if she was evil-- the way she acts is just so unnatural and weird that it being legitimate and not an act is just jarring.
Its just so exaggerated and grating in how she talks.

OpinionatedCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36828857

>>36828855
I agree there, and yet when she fails the test on purpose, she runs out crying as if she's really honestly despondent when it really went as planned, so... she does have good acting, I guess?

unlikeable ponyCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36828859

>>36828857
Honestly, at this point I think she's just literally brain damaged and she's just bumbling through things by being so unreadably autistic that you can't tell if she's lying or not.


that being said, when she rand out crying twilight had already grilled her on the CMC tutoring her and was emoting very plainly that she was probably going to punish the CMC. Cozy glow may have realized that her cause and effect logic was off and that all she was going to do was get the CMC yelled at by that point.

OpinionatedCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36828860

>>36828859
I thought it showed her finding out after the fact, and that's why she went to Starlight. May have been just her worries being confirmed? Doesn't add up to me.

I can really relate to how cozy glow threw herself under the bus for her new friends only to get them into deep trouble. That happened to me just last week.

Tisk tisk conclusion-jumping and reaction, twilight. As autistic as me but prettier. At her worst here, a ringer for how Celestia treated her when the Queen was impersonating Cadance.

Starlight saves the day. As is her job.

Totally screwy ep and as usual i loved it.
