Episode reviews: Episode 1, Celestial Advice, and episode 2, All Bottled Up of Season 7

In my first article, I review the first two episodes of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (Or MLPFiM) Season 7 premier. Spoilers ahead, in case you didn't know.                                                             In the first episode, Celestial Advice, the episode starts with Spike trying to distract Starlight Glimmer from looking at Twilight, who is in her room preparing a surprise. Then, after the theme song, we see Twilight handing the four new heroes of Equestria, Starlight Glimmer, Trixie, Thorax (who is a Changeling, in case you're reading this but didn't watch any of season 6, but still saw the past season), and Discord a medal. After that, Discord brings up to Twilight that she should have a master plan, of which Twilight had until Discord bashes her plan. This then fuels the rest of the episode leading up to the final few scenes when Twilight announces that Starlight has graduated from her friendship lessons, which I don't know if she actually did because she decided that she wanted to stay.

Now my thoughts on this episode.

Despite the fact that there were no songs in this episode, which would've been a little nice, this episode ended up near the top, competing with A Hearths Warming Tail, which is one of the best episodes of all time. The biggest thing that helped this episode was the humor that was in this episode.

Another thing that caught my eye in this episode was the relationship with Spike and Celestia, just because the fact that they seemed to be sharing jokes like we've never seen before.

In the second episode, All Bottled Up, the episode starts with Starlight Glimmer and Trixie working on Pinkie Pie's famous cupcake recipe... Or at least Starlight was, at least, because Trixie was having problems with a Transfiguration spell. So after Trixie starts complaining about not being able to do the spell, Starlight Glimmer finally loses it and helps Trixie do the spell, after which she turns everything into teacups.

Time again for my thoughts on this episode.

After such a great episode and, before that, a great season, I was severely disappointed in this episode. First of all, Starlight Glimmer seemed like she was still, in ways, at the same state she was in in the episodes "The Cutie Map" parts 1 and 2 in Season 5, except about 66 times worse! It was so bad, it actually bothered me more than Rainbow Dash has in 6 seasons of the show (which is more than anything in the world!) Second of all, Trixie was just as annoying, if not worse! I know that that was on purpose but it was one of those things where you know that it was intentionally done, but was still annoying. 

Now to the happier sides to the episode.

First of all, I really loved the reference to "escape rooms" in MLP. If you don't know what an escape room is, it's where you get locked in a room (normally for about an hour) and you have to solve puzzles in order to escape the room, thus the name escape room!

Second of all, I also enjoyed the fact that this episode actually had a  song in the second episode of the season, which I enjoyed the most about this episode (which wasn't really hard.)

Now I know that this article because of 2 reasons, which I will address here and now:

1. This article was poorly written and short.

The reason for this is because this very article is the first long thing that I have started and actually finished, which means that it will be poorly written and I know that it will get better in the future, so I hope you can bear with me in this experience.

2. This article had insane opinions and you are crazy.

My one piece of advice for you: suck it up, buttercup!

I hope you enjoyed my first article ever and make sure that you stay brony my friends! Peace guys, see you later! Bye, bye!
