Hey, everybody. Rainbine here and I'm about to review MLP Season 8 episode 11, The Molt Down. Now if you have read my 5 things I hate about MLP I did in March, you would now that Spike episodes are not my favorite episodes in the show. The only two episodes I consider to be the best Spike episodes are Gauntlet of Fire and The Times They Are a Changeling. Every other Spike episode, at least to me, have either been decent, forgettable, or god awful. So, when coming into this episode, I had my expectations low and I mean, LOW. And after watching this episode, I can honestly say that this is one of the best Spike Episode we have gotten. As always, these are just my opinions on the episode. If you don't agree, that's perfectly fine. But let's get on with the review, shall we?

What do I think the Positive of the episode are?

1. Hands down, the best thing about this episode was it's comedy. I was laughing my ass off when Spike is freaking out over his rash and him coughing up fire and him trying to avoid Rarity. And I mean it, the comedy was on point.

2. Spike. After years of him getting mediocre, boring, dumb, and painfully awful episodes, the writers of MLP finally developed him properly. They gave him dragon wings and he can breathe fire better than before. And when I saw him get his wings, I was just like him. I was like, 'Oh my god! Spike got Dragon Wings!' And just seeing him fly around and beat that bird monster was pretty freaking cool.

3. Speaking of that bird monster, I liked it. It had a pretty cool design and it was pretty menacing.

4. All the extra characters we pretty good. Twilight was pretty cool fighting that creature as Spike went through his transformation. Rarity was pretty good. Smolder, for the short time she was in the episode was pretty funny. And it's always nice to see Zecora back.

Honestly, the only negative I can see from this episode is that I'm still not a fan of Rarity X Spike Ship which this episode pretty much fueled more fan art, but I can consider that more of a nitpick if anything else. I'm just so proud that the writers did not screw over Spike again and didn't make him greedy, didn't make him jealous of anything, and more importantly, didn't make him come off as a douchebag for the sake of the plot. So, I'm happy to say that this is the first Spike episode that is getting...

...a 10 out of 10. This was a Masterpiece. Is it the best episode of Season 8? I don't know, because I still really loved Surf and/or Turf. So, basically, we got a competition between these two episodes.

Anyway, what did you guys think of The Molt Down? Did you enjoy as much as I did and think it's the best Spike episode? Or did you find it boring, dull, and you still think Spike episodes are trash? Let me know in the comments and soon, I will be doing those list I mentioned I'd do in my top 10 favorite characters pic I did yesterday. I also got some anime reviews and I still got a collab I need to do.

Thank you all for reading and I hope you all have a great day. See ya later.

Rocs are cool. So are reviews.
Puberty SUCKS, but this episode was GREAT!

By the way, have you seen Big Mouth? It's an adult cartoon on Netflix that heavily relies on the puberty subject matter. I know some people (like Mr. Enter) despise it, either their content or the premise itself. And it doesn't help that one of the Family Guy writers work on it. But, trust me, it has NOTHING of the BS Family Guy has and it's actually a good show. It has flaws, but it's NOT an abomination as haters make it out. Ask StarlightGGiantess5, he's hated it at first, but he ended up liking it.

I might take a look at it when I get the chance.

Just a warning: its content may look as shocking as shows like Brickleberry (luckily the characters aren't nearly as horrible) and the character design may look ugly.

I really enjoyed how Spike got wings as well because I've been waiting for him to grow a bit and he finally did
