Re: S09E12: The Last Crusade

On one hand, it's a little odd to have Scoots' parents just leave her in Ponyville, although the CMCs are probably nearly old enough to be moving out on their own by now. Having to move is something a lot of kids will deal with, and just saying, "Nah" isn't going to help them much. On the other hand...

Re: S09E11: Student Counsel

I need to rewatch it to decide whether Silverstream needed a little more attention, but everyone carried the episode well. Genuine humor goes a long way, and so do secondary cast members. Haber's one of the few writers who's been around long enough to do something like that.

Decent episode. The beat poetry kinda dragged on, but the moral was good, seeing Ember again was good, and Fluttershy fared surprisingly well.
