This thread is meant for discussing impressions on the episode She's All Yak during and after it airs.

Be mindful of saying spoilers before they show up on TV.

I’m already giving up on this one.

Here is a picture of an incredibly depressed miniature horse I saw last year. Let’s discuss that.

+Good Sandbar
+Fucking Yona
-Did hardly see the others of the young 6, was really stoked for smolder and Gallus action
-Everycreature cringe, turning the traditional (pony) thing into a new different thing (but not really). And everybody seemed to know except Yona and the Mane 6? What
-Everything Yona messed up had nothing to do with trying to be pony-ish, but were mere accidents or shortcomings of not training dancing in the ball outfit.

Verdict: Weird friendflex but ok.

If you think about it, following the traditions, protocols, and nuances of a significant social event to the letter is about as Yak as you can get. This didn't happen because she tried to stop being a yak. This happened because she was Yakking it up.

Putting aside the horribly forced and obvious political messeaging in this episode, it was pretty decent, not good, just ok. But I have to deduct a few points because of that. 3/10, and 7/10 for the song. ‘Fit Right In’ Music Video 🦄 MLP: Friendship is Magic | #MusicMonday

Am I only one that's noticed that we're 7 episodes in and yet we only have 2 songs so far? (Both of which being "diversity six" songs.)

Does anyone else remember pre Twicorn when we got about 2-3 songs per episode, and the vast majority of them where amazing?

I'd like to say that's unbelievable that we only have 2 songs 7 episodes into the last season, but I'd be lying if I said that. It's not unbelievable, but it's certainly disappointing.

I actually really liked this episodes song, but that's besides the point. This season should have just as many good songs as season 1, 2, or 3 did, if not more. But I guess this is the punishment you get for watching a show that effectively died half a decade ago.

Fuck it! ITT we share the first MLP song we ever listened to. MLP: Friendship is Magic – ‘Smile Song’ Official Music Video I'm not ashamed to admit that sometimes I tear up a little while watching this.

I enjoyed this episode somewhat, but it definitely seems kinda confused about what it's saying? Maybe it's just bias from how this "usually goes", but it comes across oddly how much Yona seemed to really love learning those new skills, and how her training far lessened the humiliation she likely would have suffered had she just gone without a care. There's like this underlying assumption that she's trying to be someone she isn't, but... no, she's going out of her way to learn the ins and outs of a dance, having a wonderful time doing so, and being really good at it to boot. No one really... did anything wrong. That isn't a problem, it's just... huh.

Wasn't season 2's first song in episode 7?

Great 'My Fair Lady' references all over. Yona and Sandbar make a cute couple. Fun was had.

AustroSpikeCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36830354

Yeah, that is definitely a +
But that makes the "just be yourself sis :)" conclusion even moreso confusing.

Cyan Hide !YDuRgiNpKsCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36830355


Yeah I think something definitely got lost in the drafting process here. Also Twilight being a patronising bitch and giving her the trophy. Fuck off, Twilight.

I still think the best MLP FIM song was the first one I ever heard -- "Winter Wrap Up."

Unlikeable ponyCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 36830389

I had hopes for this one because I normally like Yona, but DAMN was this one piss poor.

The message is a stupidly hamfisted "Be yourself!/Be proud of your culture" kind of thing, without any nuance to it. The ball itself is just painful to see, and, I'm sorry rarity, but WTF were you THINKING with that gettup for Yona?

This is RARITY here, she's good at fashion, and that means making something work for someone even if they're "Plain" looking. She'd know how to make someone look good in a dress even if they're fat/different looking, and that dress and wig is HORRIFIC on Yona, with no synergy with her (The wig especially). There's a reason her friends are like "WTF you look like a clown!" when they see her. Rarity wouldn't be that dumb.

That being said, Rarity was a major upside to this episode, as tabitha was INCREDIBLE with her voice work. I really loved the scene where she stumbles over herself trying to say "no you're bothering, except you are" at the start when Yona comes in.

bleh, 4/10, and every single bit of that 4 is for Rarity.
