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.

  1. Testing Testing 1, 2, 3: This is an all-around entertaining episode with a great message about different methods of teaching. Plus, we got some nice worldbuilding when it comes to the Wonderbolts by expanding its history.
  2. Over a Barrel: This episode is particularly strong when it comes to its weird yet funny moments thanks largely to Dave Polsky's great sense of comedic writing. In addition, it has a good conflict revolving around the disagreements between the settler ponies and the buffalo tribe, which I thought was handled pretty maturely.
  3. Dragon Quest: I used to dislike the episode, but I have since come to appreciate it. The episode provides a good conflict involving Spike's crisis involving his identity as a dragon and desire to be a "real" dragon. While it is a bit clichéd in its execution of its premise (the dragons are basically male teenager stereotypes), I thought it paid off quite nicely with Spike standing up for his morals and decides to dissociate himself from the dragon culture when faced with an immorality of said culture.
  4. Scare Master: This is a decently enjoyable episode that does a pretty good job when it comes to Fluttershy's character development, highlighting some of her past efforts in overcoming her crippling shyness and showing how despite overcoming her fears of Nightmare Night, learns that it's just not her cup of tea, which is possibly one of the best messages the show has ever given us.

So, how would you rank these episodes? Comment below and tell me what you think!
