The Equestria Girls special "Spring Breakdown" was... kind of a mixed bag. While it was annoying to see Rainbow Dash so obsessed with playing the hero again that she kept messing up the cruise for the others, it started picking up after they found the portal to Equestria. Seeing Sci-Twi freak out about her new form was hilarious.

The tie-in to the movie worked pretty well, and the girls saving the day is always good to see. And that final scene where they had to bring all the passenger to Twilight's castle in order to use the mirror was a fun way to end the special.


And now, we only have to wait a few days for season 9 to start. I'm looking forward to seeing what the final season brings us.

Didn't watch the season premiere, but did notice Discovery Family was havin big marathons all week leading up to it. Heck, they even showed one of the G3 movies where their Rarity was voiced by Spike's eventual va.

"The Beginning of the End" was amazing.

Celestia and Luna planning to step down and let the Mane Six take their place was quite a surprise, setting up an intriguing arc for this final season.

Grogar, a classic G1 villain, is reimagined as an ancient evil force, who summons Tirek, Chrysalis, Cozy Glow, and brings back King Sombra for a supervillain team-up... only for Sombra to dismiss the possibility, and strike out on his own. And boy, did he make a major strike. The destruction of the Tree of Harmony was a really shocking moment. But in the end, he lost, which Grogar used to set an example to the others. It'll be interesting to see what Grogar's plans are.

There were a lot of fun moments in this two-parter, such as all the lampshade hanging on how Twilight usually reacts to stress, or how Celestia and Luna never really help much. And there were some really touching moments, too. Discord's speech to the Mane Six about how they didn't need his help to win, and would always embody the power of the Elements of Harmony, was perhaps his best scene yet (even if he was faking his injuries). And it appears he truly believes Twilight has it in her to be a great leader. Guess we'll find out for sure by the end of the season..

"Uprooted", while not quite as epic as the premiere, was still pretty good. We got to see the Young Six return for more adventures.
It was nice that they all wanted to honor the Tree of Harmony's loss in their own way, but they forgot to do it together... that is, until Yona reminded them. Once they were all on the same page, things went much more smoothly.

And, to my great relief, the Tree of Harmony lives, reborn into a new form thanks to the Young Six's friendship. I can't wait to see what this new "Treehouse of Harmony" has in store for us.

"Sparkle's Seven" was a lot of fun. The rivalry between Twilight and Shining Armor made for an interesting addition to their sibling dynamic, and the Mane Six's attempt to break into the castle to test the security had a lot of fun moments involved.

Spike was pretty clever here, making a secret alliance with Luna to win the contest. And it was touching that both Twilight and Shining Armor fully admitted he was their little brother.


Not only was this the show's 200th episode, but much of the story involved ideas from the Mane Six (and Spike)'s own voice actors. Most of the stuff they did in this episode involved something their respective VAs had always wanted their character to do. It was really nice that the show staff would give them a chance to bring those ideas to life.

"The Point of No Return" was a fairly average episode, with a decent moral about the pursuit of perfectionism. Though it was nice to see more of Twilight's life before she moved to Ponyville.
And it was great to see Moondancer again, however briefly.

"Common Ground" was a fun episode featuring not only the return of Patton Oswalt as Quibble Pants, but adding his own wife and daughter as Quibble's love interest Clear Sky and her daughter Wind Sprint.

Like last season's "Surf and/or Turf", it dealt with an issue many kids who watch the show suffer from: that of a parent finding a new partner. Wind Sprint disliked Quibble mostly because she felt like he was trying to "replace" her father. Only by no longer pretending to be a "sporty pony" like Wind's father and instead being himself was Quibble able to finally connect with her.

The storyline alone made this an excellent episode, but there were plenty of fun moments, and the dynamic between Rainbow and Quibble was a welcome return. Quibble and Clear Sky also made for a really cute couple (it did help that they were voiced by an actual married couple).

"She's All Yak" was a tad predictable, but an otherwise fun and sweet episode. Sandbar asking Yona to the school dance was a surprise, but it made for a lot of adorable moments. The song "Fit Right In" was really catchy, we got plenty of humor, and the classic "be yourself" moral was done quite well in my opinion.

It was an enjoyable episode, but honestly, how many times now has the problem been cause by Rarity telling someone "you need to change who you are to fit in", and then going "oh... I probably shouldn't have said that". I remember at least the episode with the Indian restaurant, and I feel like there were others too.

The episode was more than just a simple be yourself story. I am copying this from a post someone put as though Yona was saying it.

Yona best. Yaks best. This why Yona first of Young Six to get own episode. This why, even in early Season 8 episodes, Yona feel fully fleshed out as character, while others still struggle to develop beyond tropish archetypes.

But how come Yona, who is ordinarily most confident creature - best creature - grow to feel like worst creature?

Simple. Yona come from society which value tradition above all things. So when Yona learn of pony dance event, (which Yona perceive to be highly traditional), Yona pressure yakself to assimilate, so Yona can fit in.

This not like Season 5, when yaks, (who are best), scorn ponish culture. Yona - unlike other yaks - immersed in ponish culture. Have permanent place in ponish culture.

Yona has two hooves in each world. So, upon learning of a ponish formal occasion with time-honored rituals of its own, Yona feel pressure to honor them.

Everypony always say "be yourself." This simultaneously and paradoxically easiest and hardest advice to follow. Difficult, even for yak sometimes.

That's one of the things I'm worried about - how many shows at that length are known for their depth or appeal to adults? (Nowadays, not classic cartoons.)
OK KO is another such show I think uses an 11 minute runtime well and is somewhat serialized into arcs with standalones sprinkled in
