All you need to do is to rank the above episodes from your favorite to least favorite. It's also appreciated if you can give your thoughs on these episodes.

Let's begin this, starting with my ranking.

  1. Rarity Takes Manehattan: This episode easily takes the cake for me. I absolutely love this episode for how well it explores the nature of generosity and how others will respond to it, either by being rewarded (the cab pony; the Mane Six; Coco Pommel) or taken advantage of (Suri Polomare). Definitely one of Dave Polsky's best episodes.
  2. The Lost Treasure of Griffonstone: I enjoyed this one. I particularly liked how well Pinkie is portrayed here with how she was being serious about the Griffonstone situation and tries to spread positivity in the kingdom, while still maintaining her signature comedy. In addition, we got some great worldbuilding and a nice resolution of Gilda's arc, even if it wasn't perfectly handled.
  3. Look Before You Sleep: A good episode. It's very enjoyable to see these two contrasting personalities fight each other.
  4. The Mysterious Mare Do Well: While this may "objectively" be the worst of these five episodes, there's still some things that I enjoyed about it that puts it ahead of the episode below, such as Rainbow's development and the superhero references. But still, the problem remains: the portrayal of the Mane Six was very poor.
  5. Apple Family Reunion: This is possibly the most average episode of the entire series. I mean, there are some good moments here and there, but I didn't find most of the episode all that noteworthy.

Next week, there will be no new episodes. And also the week after that. So what should I do? Well, I'm planning on making blogs comparing the episodes that I didn't cover, which are the first six episodes, in the three-week break between the latest episode and Slice of Life, so look forward to those.

With all that said, how would you rank these episodes? Comment below and tell me what you think!
