Rushed home as fast as I could to catch this ep, got home just after it had started (was just after the first commercial break I'm assuming). Haven't had time to fully analyze it yet, but it seemed kinda odd and the ending felt sudden.

Still a decent episode though, lots of Fluttershy! <3

Oh, and hi, newly-addicted MLP fan.

Bah, someone's beat me to it. Ya can remove this thread xP

Hooray, due to the vague discrepancies of my work schedule as my career plummets down the toilet I actually got to be at home to see an episode as it aired! :D

No, wait...is that...huh... :-[...

Now we don't have spoiler tags on this forum, so consider yourself warned!

I'm absolutely in love with the Rarity and Fluttershy dynamic. It made Suited for Success a better episode, and it plays out to its full potential in Green Isn't Your Color. I think that they use that well. I'm glad to see that they consider each other best friends, as Rarity mentions.

Pinkie Pie here plays an amazing role. Her personality is used amazingly well in this episode, and she pulls off her "WTF' moments with hilarious regularity that somehow doesn't seem overused. Her final mirror gag was baffling and made me smirk. Was she really there or was Twilight imagining it?

Twilight's moments while trying to keep the secret were hilarious. I worry that she's being downplayed as the series goes on, but here she shows why she's still important to the cast.

Big criticism...no Applejack or Dash. What's the point of having an ensemble cast if you don't use the characters?

Spike of course turns all that he touches to gold. From his "pincushion moment" to his "secret" he adds so much.

I was actually disturbed by how much they downplayed the secondary lesson of the episode, namely that "Sometimes there are secrets that, for a friend's sake, should not be kept." With they type of world we live in and kids grow up in, I think that one should have it's own episode.

Anyway, great ep! The cast, crew, and development team should be proud!

Heheh, you're not the only one! Long story short, I cut the last half of my last-period class (wasn't doing anything there anyways) to rush home and catch the 1:30 airing.

Very good indeed! I lol'd when Pinkie Pie just popped up out of nowhere at the Spa :P I'm liking her more and more, lately!

Though oddly, the ending/resolution felt a little rushed. Dunno why, I'll probably have to re-watch the episode again.

Agreed, I got that same feeling too...it was like 1:57 when they were just beginning Fluttershy's little tirade where she "kicks" the vase (her adorable, adorable, adorable little tirades in this ep!) and I was thinking, "How does this become a two-parter?" Anywho, they finished it off...maybe a touch...too quickly...

Am I the only one who could relate to something in this episode? D:

I kept getting embarrassed because I knew what it was like when Rarity was secretly jealous of Fluttershy ~__~

I know it's extremely petty/retarded/etc. BUT NEITHER OF US COULD HELP IT ;_______;

also lol "stick a cupcake in my eye"

EDIT: OH AND IT WAS NICE TO SEE THE SPA PONIES AGAIN :D

Photo Finish could almost be my new favourite minor-role pony! :) And only because she's not Hoity-Toity. Speaking of those characters though, we've been seeing a lot of famous ponies lately. First Hoity, then Sapphire and now Photo Finish? Anywho, I enjoyed this episode, as The Descendant said, the Rarity and Fluttershy dynamic was used really well, plus Twilight trying to keep secrets was hilarious! Plus, we see alot of fan-favourites in this episode too- "Lotus" the spa pony, Derpy again, Bon Bon (with a new and less funny voice), what sounds like Hoity Toity in the fashion show sequence and those posh ponies from Rarity's fantasy as well.

I liked the episode, but how many more do we need centered on Rarity? When are we getting back to Applejack or Twilight?

Fluttershy's scream and sneeze, Pinkie Pie's extreme randomness, the chemistry of Fluttershy and Rarity, Twilight's attempts to hold the secrets. All of this and more definitely made this a wonderful episode.

Only downside was the lack of Applejack and Rainbow Dash, but there are episodes that have that couple OTP covered.

BTW, did anyone else think "Lady Gaga" when they saw Photo Finish?

another rarity episode! she sure is getting a lot of screen time.
Fluttershy and rarity are such cute friends, I just wanted to squish them <3 and I totally love all of rarity's fashions.

Don't know why people think twilight is an idiot.

This episode was awesome. Fluttershy's scream and vase kicking was adorable, and man lyra was such a jerk to rarity.

And of course rarity's I want to be alone, and spike in general.

But what really made this episode was stalking pinkie. I especially loved the part where she is slowly eating the apple and glaring threateningly at twilight as if saying...

Pinkie: See this apple Twilight? This is going to be you if you dare to break a pinkie swear.

Considering her methods of making cupcakes I wouldn't put it past her lol.

And I saw derpy. Poor derpy just wanted to see the show.

"FOOOOOOOREEEEVEEEER!!!"

As much as the story of this episode could of used 2 epis to flesh it out better, it was still awesome for what it was. The gags and interactions were all perfectly integrated, plus it's nice to see more of various specific friendships.

I forgot to mention Bon-Bon having a different voice in this one.

...I like it more than that other one...I hope it stays if she ever has a speaking part again >__>

Which brings up a point: How well connected in Ponyville is Derpy? She was seen (in visions) at the Galloping Gala thingy, at the fasion show, and at pretty much every other event ever. I'm beginning to think she's pretty damn high up the social ladder XD
