I feel like I should like this episode but I don't know how.  I love little winks and nods to the fandom and pop culture but when that's the premise of an entire episode...I don't know how to react to that.  I think the main thing keeping me from actually fully enjoying this episode is the fact that I don't really subscribe to fanon.  I accept only what happens in the show as canon, which means I'll accept what happened in this episode as canon.  But I feel as though I have to take it with a grain of salt.  Regardless of the new canon there's no denying that it was blatant, shameless pandering (and I really hate using that word).  I love MLP:FiM and the fandom but I just didn't enjoy this episode as much as most others seem to have.  

Overall, I felt it was really hit or miss.  I guess I didn't NOT like any of it but some of the things I could have done without were Lyra/Bob Bon, and Derpy.  And, shockingly, I wasn't impressed by The Dude pony.  (I don't know what's wrong with me).  The parts that I really did enjoy were the Mayor's speech at the end and Gummy's philosophical monologue.  

Maybe I just need time to let it sink in.

Your thoughts on the episode?

Thanks for faving 'Princess of the Night'!  Also I have more anthro MLP art, so stop by again sometime if you fancy.

Also I'm planning on seeing Mad Max Fury Road, it looks awesome.  Does it stand on its own or should I watch the other three first? XD

The new Mad Max does stand on it's own but it wouldn't hurt to see the others.  There are references to the others (mostly subtle) but nothing that really influences this movie.  However,  I would recommend seeing the first three regardless just based on their importance to the post-apocalyptic sub-genre.  Although fair warning, the first Mad Max is not like the others.  It's very...tame.  Not saying it's bad (quite the opposite) but it's just not what people usually think of when they think of Mad Max.
