Starlight's power in this episode really contradicts the whole "friendship is magic" thing. Seriously though, I totally agree that she was made too powerful here. This is only justified in the Cloudsdale fight, in which she had the advantage that the mere fact of there being a battle would have drawn spectators and achieved her goal, which would distract Twilight.

Well, if Ponyville is any indication... let's just say I don't want to rebuild my house every other week. Also, there's no Internet in Equestria, which means it's not nearly as fun as it sounds.

The pony stuff is pretty minor, despite the fact that it's in the title. It's just a mention, the skit is really about teenagers and their parents being honest or deceptive with each other.

It's not so much Hasbro being stupid, but intellectual property laws being stupid. There's a big legal kerfuffle about who owns what and what requires royalties and legally there isn't really a line between fan creations (which, in a "do whatever" world, would I am sure be encouraged) and knockoff merchandise (which is bad in any world).

Yes. Ignore it. Here are the possible reactions to a real list being leaked:

- Say "it's fake". When the official list is announced, now it's public that you're a liar.
- Say "it's real". You've now botched the big announcement, potentially costing your business money due to an untimely reveal.
- Say nothing. You lose no face, and people just speculate, wondering if it was real or fake.

1 and 2 are unacceptable. So you make no comment. That's not what happened here, so unless he's an idiot the list is fake after all.

I would've liked to see a return of Flutterbat, and I agree that that was probably the original intention, but they likely found it awkward to work in the necessary exposition to justify it.

That's not the mystery, the real mysteries are:

1. How did she hang by the tail from that tree?
2. On the ground, it's clear that she's wearing a costume: the ears and wings are a more saturated yellow than the rest of her and you can clearly see the outlines, and a string holding the ears on. However, in the air, there are no outlines, no string and the colours match perfectly: she isn't wearing a costume!
