by bat on 14 May 2019

bat suffers through another episode of misery featuring Woebegone, whom the Ponies try and save because the Ponies are a cult of positivity. Emphasis on the cult part.

by Dove on 8 Jan 2019

Dove recaps My Little Pony: Bright Lights – Parts 3-4 (S01E23-24) and gets completely sidetracked by the constant rotation of ponies on this quest and the unsettling metaphor it may or may not be.

My Little Pony (Gen 1)[My Little Pony] My Little Pony: Bright Lights – Parts 1-2 (S01E21-22)
by bat on 25 Dec 2018

bat recaps My Little Pony: Bright Lights Parts 1-2, where a trio of Baby Ponies somehow get themselves backstage to hang out with a shifty rock star, whose boss steals their shadows. A none-too-subtle exploration of the abuses and crimes in the music industry. Except for the fact it’s a childrens cartoon from 1986 and an evil wizard is behind it all, this could be a life lesson for 2018.
