AppleDash! How much I love me some athleticism in the show and these 2 ponies sure do have it! We're back in Twilight's school again and it is time for a class field trip. Knowing how competitive Applejack and Rainbow Dash can be, sometimes they can be a bit too competitive. Sometimes they just get so "in the zone" they forget that the most important thing is to have fun. Though... I think that if it's a competition for a trophy or some sort, you got to push a little bit harder, but not too hard. The determination of these two has always been very outgoing and satisfying. I'm just very excited to see where this lesson will go exactly because of what they have learned in the past about this kind of thing.










 




Teamwork is a HUGE ordeal in the world of Equestria, but with Applejack and Rainbow Dash, things can be a little rough along the way. These two have totally show us in many episodes before this one that they are the most athletic ponies around! Teamwork in friendship is also one of the most important aspects because you're all there for each other. As far as both Applejack and Rainbow Dash went, they had one duty... and that was to provide a field trip full of lessons for this group of creatures. I was really worried at first whenever they started their first argument. I kinda was thinking that the group of students would just run away, or someone would step in and straighten up both Rainbow Dash and Applejack. I think we all can agree that these two were acting very immature around their students and I would of expected them to be at ease since they learned that lesson about competition several, dozen, times. It may have been a bit out of place, but their arguments are always very enjoyable! Oh, and Fluttershy winning teacher of the month... that sure was expected!

















First off... love it that we're seeing this group of students are returning again and are finally getting a bit of development! I think that they all knew what was best for both Applejack and Rainbow Dash this whole time because they all became friends without the help of a teacher after all. Both ponies had good ways of doing things, but Applejack really was the better teacher here. Doing things safely and slowly. Rainbow Dash may get the job done in time, but patience is always virtue. It's really nice to see that the whole group of students really did learn a lot from field trip after all. It may have been a basic "save the day" type of scene, but they owe it all to Applejack and Rainbow Dash just for their arguing.  I guess sometimes whenever you want to solve a problem, you have to create a problem first.


















We're starting to learn more and more about these new school creatures and I'm really excited to see just what is in store for them in the coming episodes!!!









NEXT EPISODE...







The Breakup Breakdown


It's Hearts and Hooves Day and Big Mac has big romantic plans for Sugar Belle, but the day takes a turn when he overhears his special somepony tell Mrs. Cake that she's planning on breaking up with him!


Uh oh... things aren't going to be looking too good for Big Mac's future. Perhaps this episode wont end the way we think it will?
We'll have to wait and see!

Man, this episode! This episode is AppleDash in full force! I thought they ended their competitiveness, but it looks like they're at it again! I love it! An I really liked how Twilight scolded them and she said that she thought they moved on from who's better or not. I heard the next episode is not going to be good for Big Mac! Not in the slightest!

It really takes us all the way back to season 1 whenever they first learned this. It's an amazing concept, but yet... so many people hate it. XD

Even in canon, Fluttershy wins the best-pony award. :D 

Glad we got an episode that showed us more of the Student Six, because after the premiere they only had cameos of them "Chillin' out with the crew in the school yard." 

Sadly, whoever wrote this episode decided to throw all progress RD and AJ made since season 1 straight out the window to make them rival about a fake-golden trophy. Twilight was a bit out of character too if you ask me. It's almost like the writers don't know what "character-arcs" are. 

Meh, not the worst episode ever, but it's surely not a good one either.

It's still very nice that Twilight stepped in and told them both that she thought they were past the competition arguing.

Yeah, kinda like in Fall Weather Friends, Twilight served as the voice of reason. That episode aired 7 years ago...man, those were the old days of season 1. Twilight was still a Unicorn, The Golden Oak Library was still standing and we had way less side-characters then we have now.

Of course Flutters is the class favorite. She's freakin' adorable!

W-wait...t-they're having "teacher of the month" contests...a-and this one-note gag suggests that the school has been open for at least nine months now. But...didn't they just open...and with the whole nonsense and everything...and the...buh-wha... WHAT TIME IS IT?!?!

Fluttershy Happy Emoticon. Maybe you could lead the field trip together!
:iconapplejackshockedplz: Rainbow Dash Shocked icon
MLP Emote Twilight Sparkle Happy That's a great idea! Who better to show the importance of teamwork?
Human Pinkie Pie Mad Emoticon. Uh...Rarity, Fluttershy, me, Spike, this flowerpot?
Twilight...

So really, this is just your typical AJ and Dashie shenanigans. If you didn't like similar episodes from previous seasons, you aren't going to like this one.

Another nice episode. I already knew the students figured out how to do teamwork ever since the season's premiere. Those 7 have already became such good friends that I do have to question, why do they need friendship lessons when they know what to do? But still, it's nice to see another AppleDash episode like "Fall Weather Friends" and them competing for teacher of the month is nice to show how not to do teamwork.

Also, Fluttershy winning teacher of the month everytime, so great of her to win them. But I'd like to see how that came to be in the first place and not just because of her monthly photos.

Interesting review, hun!! X3 :heart: I'm so glad you enjoyed the episode and I so agree that I also love to see the students more. <3 I like their friendship.
In the other hoof, while I always wish to see an AppleDash episode (we really don't have enough of these and they're my favorite Mane 6 duo), I actually wish they finally learned from their mistakes and competitive nature. It almost seems to me they don't like each other very much (which makes them so interesting to me)... I wish they just got episode, where they start to care for each other and become closer. But this probably won't happen, seems like Hasbro just loves to keep them being rivals.
The lesson was good, in my opinion (the fact the students learned how NOT to behave from these two). It's what made the whole conflict worthy.
So, I kinda enjoyed this episode -thanks to the students, AppleDash focus and the lesson. But I still stand for what I said about the cons.

Seriously though, who doesn't love a good Applejack and Rainbow Dash Competitive Episode? It makes for some funny reactions XD



Anyways, so looking forward to This Saturday's upcoming episode because after the last Hearts and Hooves Day episode that we had back in Season 2, we so needed another episode dedicated to that Holiday :D

Worst episode in season 8. It's like Applejack and Rainbow Dash never learned their lesson from "Fall Weather Friends" and "Buckball Season".

anyway I skimmed through this episode when I 1st saw the episode early and it looks like a retread of Fall Weather Friends this episode idea would have worked better in an earlier season but this doesn't work with a newer season

this episode feels like it was trying to be another Fall Weather Friends but Fall Weather Friends and Buckball season worked so much better while this needed some rewritting to feel like it's own episode things would have been different if I wrote non complete clause

I don't get why the flying students didn't just carry their classmates over the ravine and avoid all the trouble. Also, the scene where Twilight scolds Dash and AJ, seeing her a bit taller than the others was a happy moment for me.
