bat recaps My Little Pony: The Prince and the Ponies (S02E13), the final episode of the two-season run. And that’s about the most exciting thing you can say about it.
bat recaps My Little Pony: Somnambula (S02E11-12) – BIG BROTHER (Ponies) ARE BACK, BABY! Where did they go and why? Who cares! But the Ponies’ celebration plans are interrupted by, yet again, another villain. This one has a magic bird! How amazing!
Dove recaps My Little Pony: Ice Cream Wars (S02E10) which involves a literal war, but that’s not as interesting as the appearance of REVERSE GUSTY!
Dove recaps My Little Pony: Flight to Cloud Castle (S02E08-09), which is your typical tale of an incel demanding a fairytale girl, and every other girl cheering on his entitlement! *clasps hands* It’s sooooo romantic.
Summary: The spooky spirit of Halloween sweeps through Stoneybrook. Meanwhile, Claudia explores budding romance and struggles to connect with her parents. This is one of my favourite books in the series, they’re so silly and sweet and spooky all at the same time, and I’m thrilled to see it in this adorable show. Fingers crossed that I love it as much as I do the book. Also: Claudia narration? CLAUDIA NARRATION!
Say hello to your friends! But this is not that show, as cheesy and wonderful as it was, so let’s get started with the actual show. Summary: A creative concept comes to life as Kristy starts a club with her best friends — and a new classmate. But is she ready to be a team leader? Uh, that summary sounds terribly boring. I know they tend to be short, but good lord, that is dry as fuck. While we recap the books (the first 9 have been done so far) and we will recap the older tv show and the movie, I will not be recapping this tv show, mostly because it seems like the plots align pretty closely to the books. HOWEVER, I have looked forward to this show so damn much, and since this is where I bring my BSC nostalgia, I am going to share my thoughts. Written in real-time, edited only for spelling, adding information like actor names, and formatting for the site. I AM SO DAMN EXCITED, Y’ALL! IT’S FINALLY HERE! I CANNOT WAIT TO BEGIN. No more waiting. Let’s do this.
bat recaps My Little Pony: The Golden Horseshoes (S02E06-07). This is it, the moment you’ve been waiting for: the episode that breaks bat’s brain. Four golden maguffins to be found, a Pony nearly dies, and ENSLAVEMENT IS BACK! DRINK!
bat recaps My Little Pony: Spike’s Search (S02E05). Spike feels inadequate. He and Danny go on a buddy road trip to find other dragons. Stupidity ensues, just like it always does in this cartoon. Bat just gets to feel extra nauseated.
OH IT’S CHRISTMASTIME AND IT’S CHRISTMASTIME AND IT’S CHRISTMAS-CHRISTMAS-CHRISTMASTIIIIIIIIIME!!!! It’s my favorite time of year again and for Nostalgic Bookshelf I’ve started this article that turned into something a bit different from what I originally planned. The Christmas episode, that one special episode a franchise usually creates in time for the holiday season. Sometimes they may be twice as long as a usual episode which means they don’t normally air in regular syndication, but if they’re normal length the stations won’t care enough to pull them from rotation. You also have commonly retold Christmas stories such as “Frosty the Snowman,” “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” and “The Nutcracker” whose plots are so specific they tend to simply be re-adapted as their own tales instead of being used as the basis for an episode. Sitcoms and cartoons have plenty of stock plots for easy episodes, “Two Dates At The Same Time,” “Miscommunication = Cheating Partner,” “Character Gets Drunk With Power,” “New Job Causes New Problems,” but none are as predictable as Christmas episodes. It can take a lot of effort to breathe new life into these ideas, and sometimes you have to either be really, REALLY funny or willing to make things…
Dove recaps My Little Pony: The Quest of the Princess Ponies (S02E03-4) wherein not a lot happens, but a Bushwoolie dies. Nobody cares. Except me. I care.
The Princess Ponies are introduced into the cartoon because Hasbro had merch to sell. There’s talking lava monsters and ice orcs and MAGIC GOES CRAZY, Y’ALL! bat still has so many questions.
Dove recaps My Little Pony: Through the Door (S01E47-48) wherein fairy tale characters visit Ponyland, and the baby ponies are taught the Dance of the Seven Veils. That’s not hyperbole. That is literally what happens.
