I have to admit, Buckball still makes a lot more sense than Quiddich.

Every Little Thing She Does

Okay, now THIS is a good episode. I haven't laughed so much since Lesson Zero. Starlight's problem was also pretty relate-able to me as I tend to get so caught up in accomplishing specific tasks that I forget that the whole point of doing things with other people is to SOCIALIZE with the people.

All of the above is true, but...Starlight just doesn't work as a protagonist for me. Even when she's at her best (i.e. this episode) she feels like an unnecessary appendage to what was once a perfectly functional team. She shone as a villain, though.

I didn't laugh once. This episode didn't have a single original thing in it, and its comedic and dramatic timing was TERRIBLE.

Okay then. I look forward to that vector of Chrysalis feeding on love to be used for all kinds of bukkake fan art.

Well Kris, I realize you're probably occupied at the moment with the search for a new artist among other things, but could you give us your assessment of the Season 6 finale and/or a season overview?

Season 6 overview in a single sentence: if Season 6 had been Season 1 I would have dropped the show from my radar.

There were a couple of good episodes (the Daring Do ep with Patton Oswalt was really, REALLY good), but the majority of them were very poorly written, poorly paced, and generally indistinguishable from most other kiddy fare at the moment. On a whole I'd rank Season 6 below Season 3, making it IMHO the worst season of MLP:FiM to date.

As for the finale... there are more holes in the plot than there are in the changelings' legs. It was poorly paced, though the Misfit Band of Heroes worked fairly well (though the Discord-Trixie friction never quite clicked). Loved the changeling hive. Hated the McGuffin Throne of McGuffining. Totally WTF'd at the character designs for redeemed changelings.

I am told that this year Hasbro execs were micromanaging the show. I wouldn't doubt it for an instant.

April 15th is when we can get our Season 7 on. First two episodes are Celestial Advice and All Bottled Up.
