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.

So far S7 as been pretty decent in my opinion. We've had Princess Trollestia laugh in Twilight's face, Starlight literally bottling up her anger, Twilight being BAE, and Starlight taking another step towards making a new Mane 6.

However, I'm having a hard time figuring out the point of Fluttershy Leans In. Along with the title having very little to do with the plot, we didn't get any kind of moral conundrum or friendship lesson. It was just Fluttershy trying to build an animal sanctuary and coming dangerously close to Flutterhulk again in the process.

At least there was some sick Angelbunny parkour at the start.

I haven't seen that one yet, but I've liked all the others this season so far. Granted, there's none I out-and-out love, but I feel like there's been a significant improvement over S6 based on what's come out.

Episode 10 Season 7 -Royal Problems

Haven't commented for a while but I needed to say something.

Celestia and Luna were acting EXTREMELY out of character. It also broke one of the unwritten rules of the show - keep Celestia at least somewhat mysterious and enigmatic.

Also, ENOUGH WITH STARLIGHT SHIMMER! The show did NOT need a seventh ranger!
...Also, ponies.

Just how many episodes got leaked? I thought we were only getting Parental Glideance but we also got Hard To Say Anything and Royal Problems.

Parental Glideance I thought was really funny. I think we've all met people like Rainbow Dash's folks before. For me the hardest part is being unable to tell if they're just humoring for the sake of encouragement or if they actually believe that everything you do is the best thing ever.

Hard To Say Anything was really hard for me to watch just because of how cringeworthy it is. I guess the lesson really was an important one, though. Makes me wish I had the slightest ability to read people and figure out what they want. RIP all the Big Mac/(insert Mare's name here) shippers.

As for Royal Problems, I will admit that the conflict did seem forced with Celestia and Luna acting rather out of character, but sometimes coming right out and saying what the problems are is the best way to go about fixing them. It can indeed result in some further damage to be repaired but I would argue that the damage only gets worse the longer you humor the situation and pretend that nothing's wrong.

Not Asking For Trouble

Okay, I'm really getting confused here. First of all, how many new episodes are we getting? This is the fourth one I've found this weekend. Is someone at Hasbro rebelling against them and leaking the entire Season 7?

Secondly, what the crap was the moral of this episode? When someone says they don't want help they're actually wishing you'd help anyway? I am exceptionally unsure of what is going on, even more so than usual.

Episodes were broadcast early in England and Canada, IIRC.
