It's funny how great some of the Rainbow Dash episodes are.
Also, yay for Scootaloo, I think it was great episode for her as well. As usually in
my book, episode with one Cutie Mark Crusader tends to be better than with all three of
them - ironically. I really have no idea how this math works. Anyway I loved it.
It was starting off as hilarious episode, with Scoots fangirling the crap out of Rainbow Dash's
parents - also, yeah, they're cool, and I actually like them more than Rainbow herself
Although when it got serious and heart-wrenching it really got serious and heart-wrenching.
To me, this episode was really cranked up on emotions, like for the most of part it was funny
with the antics of Dash's parents, and all that, but then the confrontation was painful sight,
although Dash's outburst was somewhat understandable, especially given her personality.
Small detail but I like how Wonderbolts helped Rainbow with her parents apprecieation event
as if the writers themselves were saying "See people? they are a team, they like each other.
The teasing and nicknames are just for funsies!"
Also, it was very touching how Scootaloo got the "over-apprecieation" moment at the end.
It was both funny and sweet. Anyway, I loved the emotional
rollercoaster all the gags and touching moments. It was great mix up. And so far, one the best
episodes this season
