At last the episode had been leaked.

It was all that worth.

General. Well, more like the learning she did do didn't really have anything to do in this episode (It's not wrong to let people you love help you + everything won't be perfect).

I think it kind of does apply, if in a rather broad, round about way. After those lessons she is a lot less prideful then she was, and as such it doesn't make as much sense for her to still have this intense rivalry with RD.

Probably I just laughing and couldn't believe it. XD I'll write the review when I watch it again.

Right! So I watched a stream of it. Overall I think it was a very meh episode. I mean, it wasn't bad at all, but it wasn't that great. It was incredibly obvious who the organ player was, but I guess that's expected. So many contrived reasons for them all randomly going to the same place on the same day.

Still, it was alright.

My only complaint is Pinkie Pie seemed unusually braindead in this episode.  Other than that, this a one of the better slice of life episodes with plenty of fun to go around.  It also tied in a little into the overarching plot might have given us that season long villain I wanted in the premier.

Really, the only episode I'm dreading so far is the Scootaloo episode.

Actually, Scootaloo ep is one of the ones I'm looking forward to most.

Ahh! So you are still streaming :D I 'll give it a shot next week though may I suggest that you post the link at least 30 minutes ahead of time so we can see if it works with our browsers? On topic I think it's safe to say that we won't be seeing friendship letters anymore since the Mane 6 will now be using a Diary and while RD and AJ's initial bet with the bees may not have been as... Daring... As anticipated I'm still glad I didn't have to see them with a bunch of bee stings as I would not have been able to cl0p to them for a week. :lol:

There's an app where you can download any video from Youtube in your phone. Like that you can see the episode without connection failures and "lag"  :lol:
You can even choose the quality of downloading that are allowed to the video.
Of course always use it with good purposes. When I finish seeing a video I delete it cause after I don't have enough storage on my device to see the next episodes :-\

If I'm not allowed by postíng these types of "indirectly" links I understand and I delete this post immediately.

OK resaw and time for my written review!  But...I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO SAY! XD To be honest as soon as I saw Fluttershy and Rarity going to the castle I thought "Oh dang it don't tell me this episode will be about the Mane6 scaring each other but not knowing each other is there until the end?" and wouldn't you know it? THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT HAPPEN! XD The Pony Of Shadows seems like a cool myth but I gotta ask...WHY IS THERE A 4TH LEGEND OF NIGHTMARE MOON!? Her being sealed FOREVER, another with her returning in exactly a 1000 years, one with her eating ponies and now a new one where she has some energy that stayed behind as another form? DANG SHE MUST BE UPSET! WRITERS STOP MAKING NEW LEGENDS ABOUT HER LIKE THESE how about make a legend for Celestia? What's next a legend foretelling her fall back to evil or some sort of dark fate with Nightmare Moon?

Also at the very end it turns out the Pony Of Shadows was REAL! But we only saw the shadow with yellow glowing eyes, I took a few screen shots and inverted the colors to see if I could spot any features but besides the mane looking either like Pinkie Pie's or Rarity's nothing. But I really do hate when stuff ends like this, well Twilight needs to go back and try to find that book Celestia told her about so maybe we'll get to see who this shadow is yet. But speaking of that book...why would that box from the opener be in ANY book to begin with?

Wasn't it suppose to be something the Tree Of Harmony created just like that why/how could there be any info on that box at all? Well unless the tree created the 6 keys and scattered them without no pony seeing...guess it makes since but destroys some of the lure/feel to the box. Btw doesn't the tree itself along with the box looks like it was made from the same stuff as the Chrystal Empire? Maybe it and Equestria are closer connected and betting at least one key is there (also think the Heart is the 7Th Element of Harmony made just for the Empire the Element Of Love).

To be honest the humor wasn't all that great...I blame the dang stream's LAG! DEAR GOD/CELESTIA/LUNA/DISCORD/WHOEVER I have got to fix this lag issue! Sure the humor was good but because of the cursed lagging most of it was ruined, the only bit that really made me laugh was Pinkie Pie being the one  playing the Piano the whole time I just laughed and was saying "WHAT!? What LOL THAT'S FUNNY FUNNEST MOMENT YET! XD Probably." it caught me by that surprised. XD Epic plot-twist altho still wanna know who the Pony Of Shadows really is was it really part of Nightmare Moon left behind or somepony else?

Hm...maybe just maybe...wait a second.........OH MY FREAKEN GOSH FAN THEORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! XD What if and this is totally just me guessing, but what IF WHAT IF! The Pony Of Shadows is the very thing the Mane6 RIPPED FROM LUNA! They used the Elements on Nightmare Moon and BAM Luna is back, but what if...the Pony Of Shadows is a result of the evil that the Mane6 ripped from Luna as in that shadow...IS NIGHTMARE MOON TRAPPED IN SHADOW FORM OUTSIDE OF LUNA!?!?!? That could explain why Luna doesn't (as far as we know) show any of the feelings that made her evil so....hey just a theory.

I was also going to say the Pony Of Shadows is a part of Luna that when she turned into Nightmare Moon (or after she was sent to the moon either moment counts) that force of energy resulted in a part of her taking a form of it's own? But I like my theory better. XD GOSH now was I? Oh right the humor...eh maybe later on it will get funner to watch as just saw it twice today (first time with lag swear I am gonna stop watching streams if this lagging doesn't stop) so need to have it set in then rewatch. Animation was OK I suppose but...my PC has a terrible time showing dark settings, if I watch something that has dark lighting I CAN BARELY SEE ANYTHING AT ALL! But that doesn't get in the way very much, the way the Mane5 not counting Twi was acting was sorta funny.

Good to see Rainbow and Applejack are still having their rivalry from season 1 (dang I want them to kiss each other...) Fluttershy's reaction after they got lost from Angel and trying to find him was nice, when she thought Angel was crashed by a pillar DANG what a moment! That must've felt terrible...at least it wasn't him and he showed up soon after. Rarity wanted to go and refix all the cloaks? Well that's very good hope she does that well, but at the end she said she was gonna put it back after refixing one? Why not take it so other ponies could see some history/old stuff? Or give them to the princess sisters? Also Rainbow Dash and Applejack's bet on who could stay the longest without running out scared, sorta classic but...Idk. XD Btw where was this Pony Of Shadows legend before when they first got the Elements and such?

Also why did Fluttershy bring Angel? What is the Evefree Forest getting more and more safe each season? At first they were all scared to death of the place, it has monsters and "un-natural" stuff but now it's like "Hey wanna go the Everfree Forest? I'LL TREAT!" what happen to them all being scared of it? Sure growth I guess but THE MONSTERS! Eh maybe the vines from the opener made them all find new homes? Idk but their willingness to go "just like that" Idk but aw well guess they got some of Applebloom's bravely from season 1? XD The castle also had traps huh? Wonder if the new one does..? OK someone MAKE A FAN GAME WHERE YOU EXPLORE THE OLD CASTLE! I just love exploring old stuff just wondering what to find.

Also the sisters' journal (sorta ANNOYED Twilight called it Celestia's journal while when she first found it she called it the royal sisters' journals GIVE LUNA SOME LOVE DANG IT!) wonder what's all in it? Surprised all of the books are still, you know readable after a 1000 years of not being cared of you would think they would break very easily right? Also Twilight's idea of a journal for them all is that gonna be the new letter system? Season 1 had letters every episode I think, season 2 made it where not just Twilight but her friends could write letters too, season 3 only had TWO LETTERS and now their gonna kick the whole letter system altogether? Is it because Twilight is a princess and doesn't need to write them anymore? WHAT ABOUT HER FRIENDS!? Princess or not you are NEVER too old to learn! All well we'll see where this goes.

Let's see what else...oh, why did Celestia send Twilight to look for the old book? Did she even give any details about what it looked like? Is going there too painful for Celestia is that pain why she got another castle? Either way she should've went there too, but guess if she did the episode would've taken another route. I sorta thought this was going to be a Halloween/Nightmare Night episode at first but upon viewing guess it's not (hope they redo the Holidays someday tho be cool), also thought it was going to take place in the new castle but at least we got to see the old castle altho...how many fans are gonna take the journal about Celestia talking about the traps and the traps themselves and add them to the whole "troll" thing with her and possibly Luna now? Hope not, let's see what else to say...

Pinkie Pie, I hope they aren't making her stupider then what she is...she has character hoping season 4 doesn't ruin it. Altho the whole piano thing I can totally see her doing. XD Hey heir to Discord after all (hadn't said that in a while, btw wonder what would've happen if Discord was in this episode? XD) but her using her head to "ring" the school bell? I can't imagine Pinkie doing that for some reason even she isn't that stupid HEY she's not stupid at all but that...I don't get. Also "Star Spiders" and it was the season for them? Hm...why would they make a point about the spiders or even bring that line up unless they were involved in the plot? Maybe they were the real cause of all the scares but they were cut? Or maybe it was foreshadowing a future episode?

Either way, hm...I have no idea what to say. XD Guess I better stop here this episode was enjoyable WAY better without the lag...Btw why did one of the traps give Angel some food? Kinda out of the blue random. XD Also when Twilight saw Angel "why" did she just forget about him after finding the old journal? Wouldn't she think Fluttershy would be near or at the very least looking for Angel and thus go looking for her? Also when she and Spike finally notices their friends running around scared as all freak Spike just said "wonder what got into them?" shouldn't one have said "Where did they come from?" or "Why are they here?"?

Minor I guess, OK this is going on long enough. XD I better rate and get a move on. I guess I'll give this episode a...wanna 2 but I'll give it a 3 yellow eyed shadows out of 5. It was good to watch without the lag but I don't recall laughing other then at the reveal of PINKIE PIE THE LORD OF SHADOWS! Maybe it was because of the lag the stream keeps having now or days, but I still enjoyed it and it got me interested in wanting to know more stuff which is a good thing I guess. XD Thanks for reading this long and see ya later I guess.

Could someone change the title of this topic so that people will know which episode we're talking about?  Also, I'm a little late on replying to this because I had work and my family picked out a Christmas Tree.

So yeah, just watched Castle Mane-ia...  It was okay.  I'm glad that I didn't hate it, but there wasn't much in there that appealed to me.  I didn't think the jokes were all that funny, save for one or two, and I wasn't scared by the supposed "scary" bits, and the whole thing felt INCREDIBLY cliched.  But of course, that's just how I felt, I'm sure people will find a lot to enjoy about this episode...  and there are some things I did enjoy.

For one thing, I LOVE the animation!  It just keeps getting better with more expressions, more motions, just overall more stuff going on that I really like out of this show!  Even though I was a bit annoyed with the cliched dialogue and plotpoints, I just loved seeing the ponies move, and also talk!  I STILL love the voice actors of this show, and still remains one of the best aspects about the show and one of the key reasons why I watch it to begin with!

Other stuff I liked...  that "bee stare" at the beginning was pretty funny, as was Pinkie's ramblings.  That beekeeper looks a lot like the mailpony from The Last Roundup, doesn't it?  I liked Fluttershy in this episode, but I always like her.  I liked those spider things, even though they don't factor that much into the story, and only get a throw-away line and are only seen at the beginning.  The old castle looks cool, though I do find it strange that such a castle that use to be the home of Celestia and Luna had a lot of strange decor, but I'll get to that momentarily.  I like that Angel wasn't a total twat (forgive my French) this time around.  I liked how when Applejack said "nopony knoooooooows", it mirrors the "oooooo" she made in Look Before Your Sleep.  I like how Twilight continues her leader role by calming everyone and bringing them together.  I don't know if anyone made this metaphor, but she's the glue that keeps friendships together, ironic given that initially she wasn't interested in friends at all.  I also liked Twilight's explanation for why she wasn't scared; having read the princess sisters' journal, she knew all about the castle and thus it wasn't that scary to her.  The fact that she's easily distracted by books also helps.

One last thing I kind of liked was that the letters thing was replaced by a journal, which Twilight suggests after reading Celestia and Luna's journal.  Some people might be surprised by the replacement of the letters, but then again, it makes sense, seeing as the letters thing was an assignment from Celestia to Twilight as her student, but now that she's ascended to princesshood, she doesn't need the letters anymore (though I'm sure they'll keep them just in case), so now we can still have lessons/summaries at the end of an episode, just through the journal...  I don't see why, since I figure by this point they'd just abandon the whole concept entirely, but it's still a nice sentiment and I look forward to the entries.

Now for stuff I didn't really care for.  Like I said, the whole episode feels really cliche, stuff you'd see in any given "group goes into creepy place, finds out it was just their imagination the whole time" storyline that...  I feel like I've seen a lot of.  Lines about ghosts, and AJ and RD being scared, I feel like they're almost "cringe-worthy", though thankfully, they never get too painful that I stopped liking the episode.  Before it all ended, I "knew" that Pinkie Pie was the one playing the organ and that there would be a logical explanation for everything.  Speaking of which, while I liked Pinkie's rambling at the beginning, here it's a lot more annoying, especially when she assumes that everyone getting scared in the castle was some sort of party, and went "duh!", like seriously, THAT gets on my nerves so much.  Hey Pinkie, not everything you think is obvious is obvious to everyone, especially since you're a cuckoo-brain!  I liked the "imagination leads to cake" line, though.  Also, I think the most annoying aspect of this episode was the most cliche thing out of all the cliched things in this episode, when everyone says "I guess there was nothing weird about this place after all!" then all of a sudden "OH NO, THERE WAS A WEIRD THING THE WHOLE TIME!", I don't even need to list examples, I've seen this so many times it feels ridiculous to see it here!  What's irksome about it, for me anyway, is that it's one of this last-minute teases that they're never going to touch back on.  I mean, why should they?  why should they revisit the "Pony of Shadows" thing after the mane 6 already concluded that it was all in their minds?  It's just really annoying and pointless to me.

Now for some nitpicky things.  Why did Rarity restore the tapestries when she was just going to return them?  I guess because of what happened, but really, they proved that there's nothing supernatural about the place, so why not take it home, use it for inspiration, then put it back?  Twilight's line about Spike's sarcasm really annoyed me, and I don't know why.  I find it incredibly strange that she ignored the organ-playing and all the other noises, yet decided to check things out when she heard ponies screaming.  What was so strange about the hall of pony legs?  I mean, they're clearly statues, right?  Sure it's a weird design choice, but I don't find it all that spooky.  Why are there so many trap doors and secret passages in the castle?  Are there just as many trap doors and secret passages in Canterlot Castle?  Fluttershy crying Angel sounded a little off; I never did get the whole "Fluttershy shouting" joke, because clearly she can scream really loud, so why is she restraining herself a lot of the time?  But then again, I love Fluttershy, so I don't care that much.

Lastly, Twilight's home situation.  Twilight's in her library, but it's not explicitly stated that she's living there, and seems to be implying that she's looking through the books in the library to see if there's anything about that chest (love the continuity nod, BTW), and implies that she's going back to Canterlot after she's done, mostly to check their library for any information.  I kind of assumed this episode would set up that Twilight would live in the old castle, but I guess that was just wishful thinking and letting my hopes get the better of me; after all, the castle is clearly falling apart, hard to live in a place like that.  Meghan McCarthy said via a Tweet that Twilight will still live in Ponyville, and I'd like to know how.  If it turns out that Twilight still lives in her library, then...  well, I'll be quite disappointed, frankly.  I figured that being a princess would entail big changes, and not just from a "how ponies react to her" kind of way.  I ASSUMED this meant she was going to live in a castle or with Celestia and Luna, because, you know, she's a princess, she shouldn't still be living like a commoner.  Having her move would show, from a setting standpoint, that yeah, thing shave definitely changed, and this'll help Twilight learn to deal with these changes while still being friends with the rest of the mane 6.  But, who knows, maybe they'll explain where and how Twilight will live from now on, and I'll find it agreeable, but for now, consider me on the fence about the whole thing...  leaning more towards the unsatisfied side.

I THINK that was everything I wanted to mention...  Oh, one last thing: this is the first episode by new writer Josh Haber.  I didn't know what to expect from him, and having seen his debut episode...  I still don't know what to think of him.  I can't really get a firm grasp on his style, since as I said before, the episode feels really cliche.  Maybe if and when he writes another episode I'll get a better understanding of how he writers; and I know there are some of you out there that don't like the idea of judging an episode by it's writer, and it's understandable, since a lot of people would rather just judge an episode on it's own merits, but that doesn't mean a writer can't bring his or her own quirks to an episode, and sometimes that can either improve an episode or...  well, yeah.

Speaking of which, apparently Dave Polsky is writing the next episode?  You know what, I'm feeling very optimistic about this season, so maybe it'll be good, or another exception like Too Many Pinkie Pies...  I'd really rather find out who the writers are AFTER I've seen an episode, honestly...

But as for this episode?  Good, but I kind of doubt it'll be a classic.
