Sorry for the interruption, but we'd really appreciate it if you watched some of our videos!
All videos are written, performed, and edited by the Agony Booth staff, so they're just like the
recaps you know and love, only without all that annoying reading!
“The last time we had a Cutie Mark Crusaders episode, we got a long wished for and well-handled character exploration. This time... we have children going nuts. Joy.”
“What Fluttershy has isn’t ordinary stage fright, or performance anxiety. It’s performance paranoia!”
“To this show’s credit, it handles the love triangle plot way better in a twenty-minute episode than a certain billion-dollar Hollywood franchise did in five movies.”
“‘Weird Al’ Yankovic is pretty much playing a combination of himself and a male version of Pinkie Pie called ‘Cheese Sandwich’. Sounds like a killer combination to me, if for nothing else than just how random it is.”
“I’m not entirely sure what this episode has to say other than, ‘Hey, look at Discord! Discord is here!’ Which, I’ll admit, is not the worst episode idea I’ve ever heard.”
“Well, people, you knew it had to happen. The thing about any long-running series is that no matter how good it is, there will always be a few duds in between all the great stuff.”
As it turns out, Ursa was wrong about the finale, and she's kind of glad about it. Spoilers, y'all; we're diving into the series 3 finale of Sherlock, before returning to our regularly scheduled hiatus. Let's hope it's less than two years this time.
“I will admit, though, that if you’re going to take a selfie, plunging over a waterfall is really the only way to do it. ”
“‘Rarity Takes Manehattan’ looks to be another fan favorite, and possibly the best Rarity episode the show has produced so far.”
It's been two years in the making, but Sherlock is back for series three! What did Ursa make of "The Empty Hearse"? Was there love, hate, or total indifference for "The Sign of Three"? And can we expect to see more Molly Hooper this time around? The answer to the last one is "yes". For the answers to the others, you'll need to watch the episode.
“There’s something strangely delightful about dear little Fluttershy turning into these... things. What will they do next week? Turn her into a slimy mutant blob? That could work.”
“Matt Smith’s goodbye is about the Doctor facing his own doom and destiny with a raised head.”
Christmas is over, and Ursa has a message for Matt Smith: you deserved better. She talks "The Time of the Doctor", consequences, stirring speeches, and hollow threats. Oh, and wooden Cybermen. Can't forget those.
“The Mane Six get sucked into the comic book, and are given super powers, as well as outfits that cosplayers all around the globe are most certainly making for themselves at this very moment.”
“Season four of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic finally picks up with the fifth episode ‘Flight to the Finish’, which seems to have become an instant fan favorite.”
“Hey, if I didn’t have any sense of decency, I would probably be camping out on Guillermo del Toro’s front door (who wouldn’t?). But I do have decency and respect, both of which probably should have been at the heart of this episode’s lesson.”
