• 34/66 Days of Pony - The Mysterious Mare Do Well

    When you turn the personality dial of a character up to eleven, often what you are left with is what's called a caricature- something that only vaguely resembles the original character concept and only exemplifies their most exaggerated traits. Like salt in a cake mix, this should be done sparingly, and only to prove a point. Unless you really like a salty cake, in which case good for you, I suppose. I'm sure there's a joke in there somewhere.

    This was DHX's attempt at combining a variety of common superhero tropes into a Rainbow Dash-centric episode, but we also got a glimpse at just how much of a fan of hers Scootaloo is. She literally made hats that resemble Rainbow Dash's mane. The last time I checked, I didn't see Snips and Snails wandering about with replicas of Trixie's cape and hat. Checkmate, baby- check out that three-pointer. What game are we playing?

    After the break, catch Rarity: Costume Mafia.

    This looks nothing like the picture on the box!
