So, in recognition of their services to the region and with the advice of our Delegate Princess Luna, we're re-appointing The Principality of Trotterdam Ponyland's Regional Research Officer, and making The Rainbow Pony Kingdom of The Candy Of Bottles Ponyland's Border Control Officer. If you'd like cooler-sounding titles, let us know.

Mixed opinion on the new episode.

On the first hand, the pandering was pretty bad. The episode also wasn't very MLP-y. It barely used any concepts that make MLP what it is. It was just a modern-day sitcom with characters replaced by ponies, with few fantasy elements. I was put off by that. Sometimes it felt like something the team made for their own amusement rather than an actual show episode. If you replaced the ponies with the cast of Gravity Falls or any live action sitcom, literally not a word would need be changed in the script.

On the other hand, this season used to have a bad dynamic where Mane Six was all but left out of focus. On Your Marks was the first episode in the entire series to not feature a single M6 pone. In all other episodes except Gift of the Maud Pie and Hearth's Warming Tail, Mane 6 played a secondary role, while Starlight Glimmer and Spike got the spotlight. In my opinion, that was a very poor development. This episode however, completely left out Spike and Glimglam in favor of Mane 6 just dorking around and helping a friend out like in the good old times and everyone was almost perfectly in-character and got their time to shine. I loved that. We definitely need more stuff like this because that's what the show is actually about.

Overall, it's definitely a very strong episode and probably one of the best. Definitely one of the best in the last 4 seasons, alongside Hearth's Warming Tail, Amending Fences, Princess Twilight and Maud Pie. However I feel like they could go easier on meme pandering and references, and make a scenario that feels less mundane.

In other words, it gets maximum possible points for character presentation, but near zero in the worldbuilding/setting department. Still great.

The Vines, Deoecia, and Friendship Magic

I thought the new episode was hilarious, actually. The change in narrative style (doing it as a "mockumentary") caught me by surprise, but the writers pulled it off well. Hopefully we'll see more offbeat episodes like this--not TOO often, of course, but every now and then will be fine. It's good to see the show expand its creative horizons like that.

Port Myreal and Maxim Heavy Industries

They have been showing a lot of DJ-Pon3 lately, not that I am complaining, I like DJ-Pon3.

DJ-Pon3, like Derpy before her, has apparently been promoted from Background Pony to Secondary Character. She's unique enough for the writers to find situations where the Mane Six can interact with her.

I wouldn't say that. In No Second Prances, the real focus was Twilight Sparkle. She was the one who did something stupid and then learned a friendship lesson about it. (That's what usually passes for character development in this show.) Starlight was just a vessel for Twilight's stupidity.

Newbie Dash was obviously about Dash.

Hearth's Warming Tail wasn't that much about either the main 6 or Starlight Glimmer, since all meaningful plot, beyond the opening song, was in a fictional story. Sure, many of the characters resembled the main 6, but they weren't them.

As a side note, though, you're right that The Saddle Row Review was the first "all of the main 6" episode this season (I'm not sure it even counts as a Rarity focus - she's the one it was about, but she actually did the least)... and Starlight Glimmer wasn't in it. I guess that settles worries about the main six becoming the main seven.

It would help a lot if her music actually sounded good.

And who actually pronounces "PON3" as "pon-three"?
