Okay, looks like another CMC episode. Somehow it feels like it's been a while since I've seen these three...
Who's Featherweight? Huh. I guess they had to come up with more new ponies just so they could show up the crusaders.
We get a cute little montage out of it, but I find it amusing that Sweetie and Scoots didn't seem like they actually tried reading the paper before jumping to arts and crafts.
Of course, Diamond Tiara. Because it makes perfect sense for her to be in charge...
heheh... Namby Pamby. Think I might have seen that joke referenced somewhere, but the delivery is still great.
Aww... Scoots still can't fly...
How does a pony use a typewriter?
Actually, I changed my mind, DT makes an awesome editor.
Ugh... I remember getting gum in my hair. Can't imaging what it must me like with a fur coat.
So I can't help but notice that all the little ponies in line there are blank flanks. I guess they're from a different class or something?
DT actually complimenting them? What world is this?
Poor S&S... their 15 minutes of fame are over.
Really, Rarity? Gum on their bum? That's quite the sophisticated sense of humor you've got there...
Heh, the way Sweetie flicked Rarity's horn? Perfect. Seriously. It's the sort of thing that you'd never think of, but something that fits perfect into a world filled with unicorns that also happen to be siblings.
Heheh, I just noticed the typewritters only have two buttons. What's going on with that printing press?
Spike, that was kinda gross.
Woah... Twilight... are those stripes in your mane dyed?
I don't know what to believe anymore...
Heh. I like that look on Celestia's face.
Ha. Speaking of mane dyeing... Kinda sad though. Pretty sure that's a reference to blonds who dye their hair to get taken more seriously at work...
Sensing an anti-gossip moral building here...
Hahaha, Big Mac still has the Smartypants doll.
Ooooh... Poor Fluttershy...
Ouch... a published diary.
Blackmail... That's closer to the DT I know.
Let that be a lesson, girls. Never tick off someone that can control the weather...
Fluttershy literally crying a river.
Gee, was the force field really needed, Twi?
damn. Getting chewed out by big Mac. Now you know you've crossed the line. Dude didn't even yell at them when they drugged him and dropped him in a pit.
You just know the writter was waiting this entire episode to work a "Stop the presses" line in there somehow...
heh... you know, the ponies' reations were a little extreme, but at least they're just as quick to forgive when they get an apology.
And karma steps in once again to punish Diamond Tiara.
I liked this one. Quite a bit, actually. There were a lot of great character moments, a lot of funny gags, they managed to slip in a huge cast, and yet the whole thing flowwed really well. There have been themed episodes before, like Mare-do-well, where you can tell they wanted to slip a certain different type of story into the show and sometimes it feels a little gimicky or a little like a different show. The reporter gags and storyline are as old as those hats they had the CMC wearing, and yet I think it pulled it off. It was clearly an "insert idea B, but now with ponies" Episode, but it felt fresh because they made it their own, and to me it still felt like it fit the show.
