So this episode is for Book Fans, Fans of the concept of Daring Do, and Indiana Jones fans...Lets see how they mess this up like Spike at your Service.
So the episode starts off with Fluttershy trying to teach some baby birds how to fly when Rainbow Dash comes out of the sky to tell her that the new Daring Do book is about to come out in 4 months.
So to find out if Twilight wants to...do something with the book she stumbles on them having a party on a...random holiday that Pinkie made up
Thats Pinkie!! *Laughing and Sit Com music*
Twilight informs Rainbow dash that the new Daring Do book has been delayed for reasons unknown.
And for a Princess she is quite the stalker pony. I mean knowing just about everything about this author EVEN where she lives is just down right....creepy.
Get at it you fanfiction writers, you don't have all day to make those creepypastas.
And you want to guess the name of the Author? okay i'll give you five seconds....ready....GO!
Its A.K.Yeilding.....SSSMMMMMMAAAAAARRRTTTTTTT JOOOOOOKKKKKKEEEEEE (pleasenotethatjokeisownedbyContinue?showandIownnothingofitpleasedon'tsue)
So they go to her house and find it in shambles for unknown reasons. Rainbow Dash seems more occupied with wanting Yielding to be writing her book more then being, you know, still breathing.
Then enters Yielding herself looking alot like a Octavia/Daring Do Mix it seems. She blames the girls for doing this to her house after hearing A PRINCESS telling her they had nothing to do with it but still blames them.
So after pushing the girls out and opening her secret book of wonders with it holding a magical ring of wonders a group of Hench-Ponies (One of them looking alot like that Slimy German from Indiana Jones 1) Yielding shows herself as Daring Do!....I saw this coming from a mile away as did the rest of you most likely did.
So does that mean J.K Rowling is really Harry Potter and Hogworts is a real place?
So after Rainbow Dash causes Daring Do to mess up and bust her leg to the point of splinting it Daring proclaims that she only works alone and does not need Dash's "help."
Let me take this time to so that I do not like Daring Do. Its like someone mixed the best Parts of Indiana Jones and the bad parts of Batman.
Then we get to the moment in this episode which I dread the most. Twilight and Dash DEBATE on helping an injured pony....NO JOKES HERE!
I mean...sweet god! These girls have faced Equestria threatening Bad Guys and NOW they are getting scared about some hench-ponies, A Indiana Jones Rip off villain, and ever lasting Heat?! I call BS on the most serious of degrees!
And Twilight...your a princess! Are you debating on leaving an injured subject run off to what seems to be her own death and just GO HOME! I think the magical box can wait Princess Cowardly Lion!
And guy! I wish to all that is pony to stop harping on Princess Twilight and how dumb it is! TRUST ME I WOULD LIKE NOTHING MORE FOR THAT TO HAPPEN! But it seems that the show is dead set on bringing up more reasons to dislike her as a princess. Its maddening!
*Calms down* okay, I think I got this.
So Rainbow goes off on her own to find the Daring Do and help her save the day...And it seems Daring Do has self healing powers because that leg is looking 100% healed cause plot reasons.
So Daring acts more like an Anti-Hero and pushes Dash away from her and says she doesn't trust anyone....I'm trying here guys but this is quite stupid.
Daring is pushing away a mare who has saved the day more times then she has written a book.
Well to be fair Dash is acting like a complete fangirl right now and scared she is going to mess up infront of Daring. Now it made sense for her to do this during the Best Young Flyer competition but that was a whole two or three seasons ago! I'm sure you have gotten over that fear already.
Dash and Daring Do get to the location of Indiana Jones Rip Off's camp and Daring puts a forest beard on herself to fool Indiana Jones Rip off and pay him with Bits she pulled right from her flank.
Then suddenly Ali..Alti...Catman appears and fights Daring for control of the Heat ring and making witty banter. Again, the good part of Indiana Jones as a character.
But Rainbow acts like a cowardly idiot once again and gets herself caught by Catman. So Daring surrenders and is taken prisoner by Catman before saying that Rainbow Dash has helped enough already.
The other girls, taking a whole day to find Rainbow, Ask her what the problem is and *Large amounts of laughter* Oh My Gosh! Dude! The one scene of Rainbow Holding her hooves to her heart like bucking Swan Princess is just the BEST *XD* Please let someone make that into a Meme! Please! *LOL*
So having a Cuttaway to Daring Do being cuffed to the wall by Catman and under a slowly rising pool of Parana (Who only eat dead skin cells mind you) and Daring frees herself by...pulling the cuffs free from the wall with the stones still one the cuffs? Daring...are you an idiot? Cause heavy stones + water + adventure movie Parana = End of Story. But suddenly Rainbow Dash pulls a Link Between Words, coming straight out of the walls and freeing Daring Do. They like eachother now and stop Catman's plans by making the rings heat the world with the sun's powers
Man, I sure do like it when Princesses don't do their jobs.
So after a quick goodbye we get this Episode's lesson: Um...Uh...Now that I think about it I can't really remember it. I know it was something about not be a coward or something....
Rating: Guys, I am being 100% honest here...I so wanted to like this Episode. It has good things going for it and an awesome idea around it. But everything that went wrong with it really just put it down to a 2.5 stars for me.
So what did you guys think? Did you like it or hate it? Did you like this version of Daring Do?
