Due to RL issues at the moment, my mind is kinda shot. I feel fine physical. The mental aspect is weird because my body feels like a hollow shell at the moment. It's due to the past month or so that I've been disconnected from things in some form or another.
As I go beyond that aspect right now, no one is probably interested or cares, I may or may not be doing my full reviews right now for S4 of MLPFIM.
Giving a brief review: The first installment of the season was decent. It had the moments to make me smile a bit, but missed those "je ne sais quoi" moments I grew fond of with S1 and S2. In the end, it's a decent two part opener. I found it ranking better than the opener for S3 because the enemy/threat felt more genuine with its own personality. As I over look things, I would give the episode a 6 out of 10. The pacing was good, things were reinforced, and, as mentioned, the threat was better than the S3 opener. To be honest, it felt like someone crammed their washing machine full of clothes to get one load done because of necessity, laziness, or both. The episode succeeds, yet it feels like they could have done more with less.
