If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Oh man, I was not expecting today's episode to turn out this way, and I'm not entirely sure if I can manage to say very much about it. And sadly it is for the wrong reasons, but I will struggle through and attempt to get some thoughts onto the digital paper. Whether they are incorrect is neither here nor there, since this is one of the first episodes I... honestly don't care about. Almost every…Continue

Well, if you've been following this series you will have seen at last some of the ridiculous freaking out over this episode. "What's that? John de Lancie is coming back for another episode???" And most of this I kept away from, in fact I went in with no idea what this episode would be about. And sadly it seems all…Continue

Another weekend, and another new episode to take a look at, which also is the last one of 2012. And it is another occasion for the young dragon Spike to take centre stage in a way, and it is always interesting to see what the writers make for him as a character that is slightly separated from the Mane Six. This episode certainly added some elements to his overall character, but…Continue

It's almost Christmas time, and I'm sure for most of us the festivities are well in movement now. (I'm already enjoying a Guinness while writing this) And it seems like good timing for an Applejack episode to air that focuses on her family, but not in a "understanding to appreciate our families" way. Instead, it's simply remembering to share good times together, and I can certainly…Continue

We're about halfway through this season now, and it looks like we're entering the character-focus segment with this one placing attention on Rainbow Dash. If you have seen previous episodes, you will probably notice that this bears a lot of resemblance to "Sonic Rainboom" which turned out to be one of the…Continue

Before I begin tonight, let me first apologise for the lack of a review to last week's episode. It was a very hectic week over here, combined with the fact that the livestream crashed for several minutes while I was watching it. It wouldn't have been fair to give a fragmented review so sadly, I won't have time to return to it.
But hey, it happens, and rather than dwell on it,…Continue

It's been a point that I have made quite a few times before now, but the episodes which focus upon the "Cutie Mark Crusaders" tend to feel rather flat for me. They are specifically aimed at the young audience and thus play it very safe in terms of story construction and complexity. Today's episode, despite having some interesting inclusions, did follow…Continue
Time for this week's review and, due to either a technical error or some fondness from The Hub, the latest episode was on iTunes before the TV airing. Which gave me the opportunity to *cough* see it on YouTube *cough* and write this review earlier than usual.
So, what was it about? Well, this episode was…Continue

Well, it feels like it's been a long time since Season 2 wrapped up, but the show returned this weekend with a two-episode special. It's hard to hide my happiness at seeing it back on screens, despite any criticism thrown at the fans the show remains great fun to watch and review. Never before has there been more attention on Hasbro's surprise success…Continue

In this our 68th episode of the Braingasm Podcast we are joined by resident Brony Scott Johnson (@scottpjthoughts), and Megan (Cesca's friend, ask her how to contact her).
We began as we do every week by introducing Rainbow Dash and the McSwag.
After that we BSed for a bit (not long) and then launched right in to What's Been Filling Our Voids. Ben got all Oprah on us by giving his latest instalment of his Audible.com Presents The Braingasm Book Club with…Continue

So here we are, at the end of what has been a fun and entertaining season with a lot more twists and turns than anyone expected. And to round it all off, we have a double-feature episode to look at. Hasbro and The Hub have been excitedly advertising this for the past two…Continue
Nothing like a Pinkie Pie episode to induce some craziness to the mix, and this one certainly turned the dials to 11 with it, as well as bringing in all the Mane Six to take part aswell. Being the final episode before the big finale next week, it's quite a way to bow out. If you haven't seen it yet, expect some…Continue

A genuinely entertaining Cutie Marks Crusaders episode? Nope, no April Fool’s joke, though the news that My Little Pony: FIM is now streaming on Netflix may well be true. So that should be an excellent way to catch Season 1. But, rather than try to separate the news from the jokes today, I'll…Continue
This is a strange little episode... on the front it looks pretty standard in the FIM universe, but it also has a lot of callings to the fans. That isn't an unusual thing for them to do, but this has them in spades. How does the combination work out? Let's take a look.
This week's offering deals with…Continue
First off, a very Happy St. Patricks Day to one and all, I hope you got to enjoy the festivities today and raise a glass (or several) to the Irish. Since I'm heading to a Brony meetup tomorrow, I kept things quiet today and stayed at home. But, the benefit is I can get this review up on time,…Continue
I'll say from the get-go here that these reviews have all been from a personal perspective; some will agree with them, others will question my sanity and being if it angers them enough. The same for the movie reviews, they might not always be right. Why am I saying this now? Well...…Continue
The show is back after the week-off and schedule change, and the matter that is now not relevant will not be brought up here. (You know what I'm talking about, time to settle down now lads.) And today, we had a look at standing up for yourself, a matter that quite a few people have difficulty in doing, or in…Continue
Pinkie Pie returns once again for the latest episode, and that's totally fine in my books. Though in a way, this episode has a bit of deeper meaning to it, and a lot more going on than I pre-assumed. In what way exactly? Hopefully I'll be able to discuss that here. (Apologies for the lack of images, it's…Continue
This episode will be remembered for many things, but mostly as the "leaked episode" after it was accidentally place on iTunes during the week before it aired. So, there were plenty of spoilers floating around the Web, but I avoided them on the whole, and cached the…Continue
