Episode 126: "The Saddle Row Review"

Aired 5/21/2016, written by Nick Confalone (his fourth episode)
Quick Take: Hailed by several reactors as one of the series' most hilarious episodes. I agree. It's a silly dilemma full of silly antics with a silly conclusion, but it's a good kind of silly. There's nothing serious here; not even the lesson is anything beyond what we've seen before. But I love the three-layer story structure, the myriad gags, all the little character moments, and Twilight being on a level even with the other ponies. I'm not sure how easily the youngest viewers can follow the story, but it's certainly a blast for us older ones.
