In the episode, the ponies discover an article has been written about the misadventures in the opening of Rarity’s new business in the bustling metropolis of Manehattan. They each tell their part of the story to the reporter who penned the piece.

The episode is told in a unique format for Friendship is Magic, with each character seen talking to the reporter, mixed with flashbacks. That reporter character could definitely be said to have some similarities to the iconic J. Johah Jameson of the Spider-Man series.

A small song from the episode, “Sweep, Sweep, Sweep” went viral after “The Saddle Row Review” aired, becoming a meme in the FiM community with GIFs, remixes, and more.
