Episode was very good.

Spoiler:

Not the most exciting, and very predictable, but really, really well done.

-I loved that they incuded references to past occurrences, such as Big Mac and his doll, Trixie, etc.

-I will never be able to unsee the mayor with a pink mane.

-I'LL DESTROY HER!

-More Fluttercry...

-Characterizations were spot on this episode.

-Finally, a colt that looks normal! Albeit with a hilarious going-through-puberty voice.

-Really, too much to list. Seriously, awesome episode.

-Soooo, ponies type in binary? Typewriters looked to only have two keys, and a spacebar. Perhaps I simply saw wrong.

Yay episode:
Adding to what everyone else said, I was seriously expecting the episode would end with the CMC doing a piece on Diamond Tiara. Of course, towards the end I was realizing that wouldn't really fix much, but I was greatly pleased that the episode didn't promote revenge. 'cause you know, revenge is bad and stuff.

Spoiler:
Agreed. I'm glad they didn't take the revenge route. Other than that, largely a 'meh' episode for me. Certainly not bad, and some nice continuity nods, but this particular plot has been done so many times that I could probably have given a fairly accurate summary based off the first minute. Still, above average in terms of quality. Speaking of quality, no new header image because CMC and because I could only find it in 480p. CMC smiles still seem absurdly deep in the uncanny valley for me, which is surprising, considering they're nonhuman. The uncanny valley of pony, I suppose.

I liked it quite a lot, but I've liked almost all the episodes anyway. *shrug*

Best CMC episode so far I think.

Further minor nitpick after a second watch!

Spoiler:


While it was hilarious, most the jokes were in-jokes. Only a rather hardcore fan would get everything. Anyone who watches casually and doesn't follow the fandom probably has forgotten completely about Trixie, for example. The joke with Big Mac's speech would fly over the head of anyone who hadn't caught that he'd said almost nothing but "eeyup" since Applebuck Season.

But while the comedy has a narrow appeal, they did make a solid episode despite that. Big Mac's speech works excellently for drama even if you don't get the joke with it. You don't have to remember who Trixie is to understand that the column was being invasive. Also, I take back my previous nitpick that it wasn't emotionally charged; it's no Hurricane Fluttershy, but still pretty good on that front, especially once you stop laughing during the dramatic parts and see them for what they are. Thus, Kaijyuu stamp of approval. I'm impressed.



PS: I have a new love for Diamond Tiara. That's how you write a jerk.
Wonder where Silver Spoon went though... they have a falling out?

Hrm....


Of all of season 2, skip the following:

Lesson Zero
Mare Do Well
Baby Cakes
Super Speedy Cider Squeezy
Read it and Weep
Hearts and Hooves Day
Putting Your Hoof Down


And watch the rest. The above all have serious problems, sort of like Feelin Pinkie Keen or Over a Barrel did. They're not without merit (only Mare Do Well is actually bad), but you're unlikely to find much brilliant about them either.


Or you can watch them all and decide for yourself. I really like Over a Barrel, though I admit the ending was a pathetic excuse of a conflict resolution. Read it and Weep introduces a great character, but the episode being vastly improved by cutting out over half of it speaks volumes. So, you might like these despite their problems.

What! Those aren't bad at all (Cider one yea) But most of those rocked, why would you skip 'em

While the Cider Squeezy episode itself wasn't superb... I kinda love the brothers' song.

Cider Squeezy was great until the last 5 minutes.


Also: Of course you're going to get different answers depending who you ask. No accounting for taste. Watch em all if you want to be sure you don't miss anything you like.

Personally, I'd avoid skipping anything because:
1. Pony.
2. You need to experience something to properly criticise it.

Basically, this. It's the same as some people skipping watching the show entirely because of some preconception or other. Gotta see for yourself, then criticize. Personally, I've grown to somewhat like the Mare Do Well episode lately. It's taken too much of a leap ahead of everything and dumped all the stuff from inexplicably random locations to schizo tech overdrive on our heads at once, but the show's leveled out since, and taken within the whole it feels merely "out of place". Its only real drawback, the questionable way the others treated RD to drive their point home, seems to me no worse than any given crazy moment in season 2. Now that I've gotten over the worldbuilding-wrecking aspect of it, it's just a normal episode. Right now I consider Putting Your Hoof Down and Lesson Zero to be the worst, because seeing Fluttershy and Twilight act like they do goes way too far beyond enjoyable comedy for me. I need to watch them again and see if I can find some better redeeming qualities for them, but it's unlikely for Putting Your Hoof Down, because it has the added problem of Pinkie Pie calling in sick for the episode, and having her role performed by Bugs Bunny in a pink pony outfit. I think I facepalmed more often than laughed during that episode.

Everyone has their own tastes. Lesson Zero didn't seem that OOC to me. I act a lot like Twilight, and my breakdowns are more like Twilight's.
