Greetings, fellow Wikians! After the gloriously noir-themed episode that is Rarity Investigates!, it's time we take a look at the other fifteenth episodes that have come out before. Here they are.
All you need to do is to rank the episodes above from your favorite to least favorite. It's also appreciated if you give your thoughts on these episodes too.
Here's my ranking.
- Feeling Pinkie Keen: Comedy-wise, this episode is absolute goal what with its slapstick and humorous dialogue. It serves a great demonstration of Dave Polsky's comedic style and is the main reason why I loved this episode. Message-wise, I actually don't think it's bad. Unlike a lot of people, I don't necessarily see it as having religious undertones and more of one that is all about not dismissing certain facts just because it contradicts with your preconceptions about nature. If anything, I say it is quite pro-science by encouraging open-mindedness. That said, the moral could've definitely been worded better.
- Twilight Time: This is a very good episode with an interesting premise of the CMC getting popular that takes a jab at celebrity culture and presents a great moral about valuing character rather than status. This episode also provides us with some nice development for the Cutie Mark Crusaders in terms of skills under the guidance of Twilight. That, and with some pretty interesting characterizations for Sweetie Belle and Diamond Tiara, makes this one of the CMC's best episodes.
- The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000: This episode has quite a good conflict involving the Apple family's livelihood being challenged by the fast-talking charismatic salesponies Flim and Flam, who are some of the most entertaining antagonists of the show with one of the best musical numbers of the show. It's a highly entertaining episode overall.
- Rarity Investigates!: A fine homage to film noir, this episode also serves as a great display of Rarity as a character. This episode really sells her love for mystery stories, what with her film noir-inspired imaginations and utilizing her established character traits -- her attention to detail and her charms -- to benefit her role as detective.
So, how would you rank these episodes? Comment below and tell me what you think!
