I have been thinking, does my profile picture look too much like a swastika? I don't want to offend people with it. It is a logo used by the punk band Fear, but they don't use it that often because it resembles a swastika. Furthermore, even though I like them, I think I really should distance myself from them as they have been accused of racism, homophobia and misogyny. Did you know that Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers used to play for them? Or that they caused thousands of dollars in property damage during an infamous performance on Saturday Night Live? Or that lead vocalist Lee Ving appeared in the movie Flashdance?Read more >
As I am sure we all know, 2017 will contain three, episode-length Equestria Girls TV Specials. The details of which are largely unknown. We also do not know if there will be any more media after these specials. Here are a few of my predictions for what may happen in these specials and beyond:
I predict that one of these specials will involve the graduation of the human Mane 7 from Canterlot High. I have always assumed that one 26-episode season corresponded to roughly one year in Equestria. As the Second and third Film were set in or after the season 4 and season five finales respectively, I assumed that one season is not a year but a few months in the Human world. I always assumed that they were seniors in the first film during f…Read more >
Neal Dusedau has arguably been the most hated writer on the series since season 5, succeeding Merriwether Williams and perhaps Charlotte Fullerton, as all of the episodes he is credited for are receiving seemingly greater than average criticism. However, although I did not like his episodes much myself, I feel that much of the criticism and comments to have him fired from the show are largely unwarranted and premature, as his involvement in the show has been very limited. There are several reasons for this, mainly coming from questionable logic, which I will examine by discussing his credited contribution in each individual episode where he is credited: "Princess Spike", "What About Discord" and "Applejack’s “Day” Off".
In all of these epis…Read more >

Most overrated: Season 4
This season was certainly an improvement over the third season, and I began watching it still trying to get used to Twilight having wings. I guess I did rather quickly but many early episodes this season were mediocre and overrated, including Daring Don't. I found giving making Daring Do real a forced and awkward decision. Maybe it was the spoilers. Why don't her enemies just disclose her true identity? The season did improve later on, but still produced some awful episodes like Simple Ways and Filli Vanilli.
The funny thing is that many of my favourite episodes were ones MrEnter hated the most.
Most underrated: Season 6 (so far)
It is the only season so far that has no episodes with Wikipedia articles, but I feel that…
