    The goal is likely not to get you to care, but to discuss with those who do. No one is forcing you to participate in a conversation you'd rather not be in.

    You don't have to discuss those topics but you should be aware that they do affect many people. Some people like to talk about those struggles because it helps them cope and push for change. Problems won't go away without alot of effort to try and make the world a less prejudiced place.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was decent, though not particularly great. Only watch if you have Jurassic Park nostalgia like I do.

    I don't know who was nuts enough to think Discord, Spike, and Big Mac would make a great team, but whoever it is, thank you! This dynamic is outstanding. Big Mac, Spike, and Discord all act like they knew each other for years, even though this trio only formed in season 6. It's organic, they play off one another, and share great chemistry. Speaking of chemistry, Spike and Discord are outstanding in their best outings in probably the show. Discord's cynicism towards H&HD, and love in particular, plays off spectacularly with Spike, who's very optimistic. To think that only a few seasons ago, Discord was one of his enemies, but from the way they talked to each other and knew each other so well, you wouldn't think so. How they interacted with one another was among the multi-dozens highlights here, such as Spike criticizing Discord's pessimism to Spike intentionally teasing Discord for possibly having a crush on Fluttershy to Discord ignoring Spike's sappy romantic poem about Rarity. They know how to get under each other's skin without crossing the line, making their teasing all in good fun rather than mean-spirited. One of the season's biggest improvements — the dialogue — is really shown here. Every line's so organic, even when it's somewhat expository, gelling together. Every line oozed with personality and passion, whether it's from the O&O squad or the CMCs. The dialogue allows for not just some amazing comedy, but also some heart. More 'bout the latter later. The comedy here is golden! Every joke landed perfectly, from the dialogue responses to the satirically cheesy love music playing in the background as Big Mac rushes to Sugar Belle to Big Mac's drinking a barrel-load of cider to Sweetie's "Please say no." Oh, yeah, and that jab towards the greeting card industry by Discord is too funny. Oh, yeah… >Lyra and Bob Bon sharing H&HD bond & gifts >best friends Riiiiiiiight. XP The CMCs were also fantastic here. All season so far, they've been at their A-game. The episode recognizes them as kids, but doesn't make them so obnoxious. They were right to wonder where that mysterious pie came from and search high and low to find him. But the and does a nice swerve: They may not have found that actual special somepony for SB, but had a magnificent time together, anyway. Sweetie's small speech at the end had quite a lot of heart in it. Speaking of heart, as hilarious as TBUBD is, Confalone found how to balance it perfectly. Big Mac's sadness was somewhat over the top, but treated with the respect it deserves. His romantic feelings with Sugar Belle feel genuine, and you can tell by how he talked about the small stuff to Skeleanor, like how Sugar snorts and wiggles her nose when she giggles (something that Nyactis Mewcis Catlum pointed out a while ago in a status). Big Mac doesn't talk much, so when he does, you listen. After they cleared up everything, it was all okay again, and they had a great end to Hearts & Hooves Day. Discord's revelation of finally believing in romance works perfectly and marks my moment of the season so far: revealing to damage her wagon wheel. Why? 'Cause he believes it while remaining in character and figured out how to get them back together his way. Somehow, he predicted what Big Mac was going to do next. Really shows he cares for him as a friend. Derpy was great in her role as mailmare. Oh, and it has two morals, each executed masterfully: "Don't assume. Communicate with your friends, and everything will work itself out." "Don't be afraid to openly admit your feelings. Those who care for you will listen and understand." This one is my favorite of the season so far, because it's so relatable to everyone. When I first watched it in December, I watched a treat. Seeing it completed gives it such a fresh look, and it still holds up excellent. The Break Up Break Down isn't just the best episode of Season 8 so far, but one of the ten best of the show altogether, as well.

    I liked today's episode. My new favorite Granny Smith episode, and one of my favorite Rainbow Dash episodes after Sonic Rainboom and Read It And Weep. 8.5/10.

    It's the small-time villains with mundane motives that really hit home. Chrysalis? Tirek? Sure, they were big threats, but whatever, you know they're going to lose in the end. But a racist bureaucrat who gets to be the gatekeeper for something the heroes really want to make a reality? Shoot, actual people have had their dreams destroyed by assholes like that. What a fantastic jerk. But the episode really speaks to how you can go into an endeavor with idealism and passion and then be forced to keep making concessions in order to keep it afloat, until it no longer holds a spark of the original vision. And then it turns out that you can just ignore all the worldly realities and do things exactly the way you want, and it works out fine! Aaaaaand that's why it's escapist entertainment. Hooray!

    People mean that the episode was allegory for divorce, not that there really was a divorce. Also divorced parents can be civil and even pleasant to each other, not all divorces result in hate between two people where kids must chose one parent.
