*sighs*
We had a situation come up at work in the last 2 days, and I suddenly find myself needing to be in on a conference call from 10-11 tomorrow morning. Right through the episode. I was looking forward to finally getting to go back to the local meetup to watch it again, too :/

It's the Background Character Episode! Having not read a synopsis ahead of time, the title made it pretty obvious that it would be about Spike. But I didn't expect that they'ed be bringing in all the pets (yay Tank!), and then they even brought Zecora in for a bit, and the CMC came around and such, too.

I guess overall that this one didn't necessarily seem particularly strong or weak. It was just a fun episode.

Angel bunny is me favorite character in the show.  Any episode with lots of angel bunny is always welcomed~

I don't think i quite understand why everyone was so hell-bent on stealing gems from spike though.  They don't seem to respect his people's cultural differences or dietary needs.  o.o

I actually wasn't a fan of this episode; it was inconsistent. In every other episode that's about anyone else, spike is diligent, obedient, and loyal. Yet whenever spike is the main character he seems to mess everything up, and is portrayed as naive. It might just be me, but this really bothers me.

"Oh... Is that gem your food?  Let me take it from you and throw it in a mailbox!"

Given that there was an entire episode about what happens when Spike gets greedy, this made sense to me.  I mean, sure, the gems are his food, but he mostly didn't seem to desire them out of hunger (except at the end).

I really liked this episode.  I enjoyed all the pets' antics, and I really liked that Angel was given some complexity.  Mostly we've seen Angel be petulant and difficult, so it was nice to see him show a little devotion to Fluttershy and kindness toward Spike.  If Angel has a good side, then it makes more sense that Fluttershy is so deeply attached to him, and I really don't think we've seen that good side before.

As for Spike, I get the sense that he really needs the structure that Twilight provides for him.  That's why he's goofy and naive in the episodes that focus on him and not so much in the episodes where he's mostly following Twilight around.  He and Twilight are well-suited to each other.

Angel has always been like that...

He sat beside flutter-shy and combed her hair when she did poorly getting her wing-power tested.

He tried everything he could to get fluttershy a ticket to the grand-galloping gala.
http://youtu.be/whbhE4UgOiA?t=13s

He was extremely concerned that fluttershy would miss her scheduled brunch with princess celestia.

He was extremely defensive of fluttershy when the crusaders wrote gossip about her in Ponyville Confidential

But welcomed them in when he read their newspaper appology (couldn't find it in english)

In the first two, what stands out to me most is Angel being jealous of any attention that the other little animals or Twilight get from Fluttershy.  I think that I kind of wrote the third one off in the past as just a white-rabbit-with-a-pocket-watch joke.  And then in the last two, I saw largely anger followed by getting out of Fluttershy's way.  So, I can kind of see your point -- that this complexity has always been there -- but, until Angel was made into the central part of this episode, I completely missed it.

I have always liked the Angel character. Cute antics, and a
good stout hearted friend to Fluttershy.  I am a fan of rabbit
characters so that gave him the edge to begin with. :orbunny:
