MLP:FIM Horse Play

This episode introduces us to a new writer, Kaita Mpambara. This episode is storyboarded by Karina Charlebois (who started boarding in Season 6) and Aynsley King (who started boarded for the show in Season 4). In this episode Twilight puts Princess Celestia in the leading role of her school play, only to learn she is bad at acting.

I really like what this show has been doing with Celestia lately. The writers are making her a more rounded character with just as many quirks and faults as the other ponies. As such she feels more relatable real and more fun to watch. I also like the Twilight's geeky side is become much more prominent again. This side of her is often what brings out some of the show's funniest and most relatable moments. Our new writer certainly shows promise. This episode tells a good story and tells it well. There is also some really funny humor in the acting lesson scene.

All in all a solid episode.
