I've heard that lots of critics said this episode was bad... and I agree with them. And it's not just bad, its AWFUL!!!
This episode is pretty much which spawned the joke of showing the Cutie Mark Crusaders are just idiots. Yes, writers, we get it, their not very smart. Only problem is that the joke is not funny. It's just boring, and showing it in many other episodes afterward is not helping it get any funnier. It's just getting mais and mais annoying. That is what I think is what most people found to be the problem. and, again, I agree.
But, there is something worse then that in this episode. It's the song. My god, this off-key song was horrible. It's as if they tried to make this badly sung on purpose. But, why. Friendship is Magic has hundreds of amazing songs. Why did this have to be made. Yeah, it's not the worst song I've heard in a cartoon, but it's still bad. But, other then that, that's all this episode is. Just the CMC being as stupid as rocks.
In my opinion, this episode was boring, tedious, and just plan stupid. But, hey, that's only my opinion. What's Your Take
