When it comes to characters in entertainment media I’m not really asking for something deep and complex. As long as they are likeable, entertaining and provide a good role model that’s all I honestly care about. Sure I love me some philosophy and no doubt they’re characters I like with that trait but it’s not something I hold top priority when it comes to fictional characters. And needless to say, these characters I’m about to discuss provided the right inspiration and entertainment for me. So keep in mind, these are not what I consider the best but rather my personal favourite. If your favourite male and/or female character isn’t included here it’s either because I’ve never heard of them or they aren’t what I consider to be the most entertaining or who I would look up to. I won’t be discussing villains since I’ve kinda already did that with my Top 6 Animated Animal Villains And I am only choosing 5 for both lists because I can only talk about so much and these are not Top lists because it’s hard to choose a favourite. I’m starting with the female list because ladies first. lol
You read that title correctly
The Heroes continue to investigate the Dragon cult.
As expected, we move from an adventurous plot to a slice of life plot, and like I said in the last review, it’s nice to have a change of pace. With that said, this was a nice breather episode, and the more I think about it, the better the episode gets. Why is that?
The episode starts with Twilight helping Fluttershy washing the animals. Twilight is wondering if there are any animals left to wash, and Fluttershy says that they’re the only two. Did Fluttershy just call themselves “animals” even though ponies are highly civilized? That’s like if humans called themselves animals. When Fluttershy mentions Twilight should return to her castle to rest, Twilight suspiciously wants to stay by “accidentally” splashing Angel Bunny in the mud. Considering how much of jerk that bunny was in the past, he had it coming, and it’s funny to watch.
I want to be more productive this year, so why not do reviews on individual episodes? Since Season 5 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic just premiered, this seemed to be like a good opportunity. And before you ask, no I’m not going to review the last four seasons as it would take too much time. So here’s my review on the Season 5 premiere “The Cutie Map.”
To recap, Twilight Sparkle and her friends Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, and Applejack, unlocked the mysterious chest used to defeat Tirek and out pops a shiny castle replacing Twilight’s destroyed home. Cut to almost a year and one Equestria Girls movie later, Twilight is wondering why the castle appeared in the first place. As soon as she sits in her chair, out pops a table representing a holographic map of Equestria.
Retrokaiser, Swingle and Darabka continue to harass each other and try all kind of shenanigans in order to get the crown of command.
