The others tried to talk to Rainbow Dash about going too far with her pranks at the beginning, which she blew off and then doubled down on the pranks. Then the pig dive-bombs next to her, finishing covering her with mud from head to hooves. When she doesn't respond to Dash's calls, she taps her on the back to which Mrs. I also found it interesting that back then mostly everyone enjoyed the pranks. While walking through the Everfree Forest at night, Fluttershy and her animal friends are suddenly set upon by a mysterious shadowed figure, who scares them into screaming. I mean there are episodes who were good, like the one with daring do lately for an example, but then were are episodes who aren't that good. The reason I haven't talked much about season 6 is because I have shown the same level of indifference toward the vast majority of the episodes, and for largely the same reasons.
Subverted in that it's just an elaborate prank. But even though I don't have any huge problems, when you get down to it there's hardly anything to write home about and I probably will forget about it after a while. It also helps how the episode puts Dash in a position where her behavior is not a slightly more irritating version of her typical arrogance which is kind of a given with her but rather painting her as an absolute jerk with her pranks. Rainbow Dash admits the town's prank was good, then says she'll have to do a lot of work to top it. Fluttershy doesn't think Rainbow's prank is at all funny; in fact, the next day, she convenes the Mane Six in Twilight's castle to talk about how insensitive Rainbow is being. While I can agree with the idea that the town has grown tired of Rainbow Dash's pranking, I don't agree about Fluttershy. Maybe that's why Rainbow didn't let up; because Fluttershy wasn't a blubbering mess by the end.
I just don't like this episode, it feels so mean-spirited with zero character development. Starring: cartoon mini-horses, addictive cookies. No longer in effect. Time to execute Zombie Plan 623-B! De Marco writing for Rainbow Dash is a bit like combining Scott Sonneborn 's writing move for Applejack in and Neal Dusedau 's for Discord in at the same time. Still, regardless of how I feel about that, episodes like these make it evident that Dash is the kind of character for whom the best way to learn anything is the hard way and then have someone explain it to her , which is also the case this time around.
However Rainbow Dash being the prankster. The real prank turns out to be that the machine is a very convincing cake which ruins the fabric she placed under it. I think its reverse psychology. Again just feels sort of forced all around. Sorry but the episodes getting worst and worst. Maybe that's would've been the case in the first season, but plenty of time has passed. The season continues to be a disappointing one.
It could have been better, we've seen it done better, there's nothing more to discuss on the topic. Rainbow Dash is holding to the frame of the blackboard with both wings and all four hooves, in a pegasus version of the position that is usually envisioned for the trope. There was also the episode Where Rainbow Dash had to take the WonderBolts exam and Twilight mentioned her pranking abilities second to Pinkie's. That's probably why the episodes aren't so good anymore. Or if her prank on Big Mac ended up causing him to get dragged and crushed by his apple cart. W, I happen to have some punishment idea's for the residents of Ponyville since basically they didn't do much a excellent job of telling R.
Rainbow keeps waiting for the ponies to come out with rainbow-colored mouths, but the town is distressingly quiet. She even disrupts a school lesson for the sake of a prank. Rainbow is insistent on going through with it, and ignores Pinkie's warning. She's so jumpy already that she springs away and clings to a branch like a tree sloth. I've obviously heard most of the rest of you all give it praise just cause of things like how it delivered its moral, which I thought was unbelievably lazy and terrible when it was delivered it, but me judging every little flaw within it, it's actually just downright upsetting, cold-hearted, and unwatchable. But, Applejack, Rarity, and the Cutie Mark Crusaders have also eaten the cookies, and the rest of the town breaks in. Today we see it come back full force.
I would argue that the characterization of Dash being an immature egotist comes mostly from McCarthy here, since that's built into the premise. I don't bashing the show. I'm ok with repeating lessons, but Dashy should have known better and been a bit more mature. In the upcoming Filly Guide cookie sale, Rainbow will replace all the normal cookies with joke cookies that turn everypony's mouth rainbow when they take a bite, even giving Pinkie one of the cookies to try. They should have replaced Dashy with someone else or rewritten the plot all together.
Because the two are pretty similar in this regard. This is repeated when Dash comes across Twilight, Spike and Fluttershy with the same results. The story, as predictable as it was, did have a competent enough execution and some but not all of the humor hit the mark my favorite joke this time around being the cake thing, thanks to how much of a fake-out it turned out to be. And the ponies were going against the lesson that they were trying to teach: Pranks are okay if everyone thinks they are funny. Big Mac could have been crushed or gotten dragged by the cart going down hill which could have broken his neck leaving him a vegetable.
