You all are very dramatic.
I don't think this was a terrible episode at all. In fact, I laud the writers for covering such a heavy, yet prevalent, topic.
I do agree that some changes were necessary though. First, get rid of Snips and Snails entirely. I've just never been a fan of these characters at all; I feel like they're a relic of an older time in MLP when having interesting background characters was a bigger deal. However, now we have a wealth of more mainstream recurring characters, so I see no need to include them. Second, Rainbow Dash should have realized like 5 minutes in that trying to make Quibble sporty was a bad idea. She's smarter than this episode makes her seem. And the game scene should not have taken place. Way too over the top, and it shouldn't have taken them that long to realize that their plan was wrong. Finally, and this kinda goes hand in hand with my last point, extend the third act by a few more minutes. I wanted to believe in the new formed bond between Wind Sprint and Quibble, but it was just a tad bit rushed. We needed like a scene where it's just them two talking things over. Where they see eye to eye on things. We didn't get that.
One final small complaint, but Wind Sprint's voice just seemed odd. It's very clear that someone's daughter voiced the character instead of a professional voice actor.
Beyond that, I still think it was a decent episode. I didn't have many negative thoughts while watching, and have to say that these comments took me by surprise.
