MLP:FIM Surf and/or Turf

Today's episode introduces Brain Hohlfeld, a new writer to the show. It is storyboarded by Marta Demong (Who started boarding for the show in season 7), Thalia Tomlinson and Mincheul Park (Both of whom started boarding for the show on the Season 5 premiere). In this episode the Cutie Mark Crusaders help a hippogriff found out whether he belongs on land or in the sea.

This was an excellent episode. The message was a very true and important one. It is also one I can easily relate too. The humor is also very funny. Especially delightful is seeing Twilight in full geek mode (which is my favorite way to see her). The CMC are also just as delightful here as always. Terramar is a fantastic character and I hope we see more of him in future episodes. This episode also does a great job of expanding the world of the show and it very smartly works the movie into the show's continuity.

By the way since I am attending the Turner Classic Movies Film Festival, the post for next week's episode will be late.
