Welcome to what I believe will be my most controversial blog yet. As you may or may not know from my negative-ish reviews of S6 and 7 episodes, I haven't been liking the way the show has been going. In fact, I've had this opinion as early as S4 having not liked the Tirek episode (seriously that IS the most overrated episode of all) and Equestria Games before it was a total letdown.
Like KillRoy and Shadowgallade, I'm willing to fanon discontinuity Seasons 8 and beyond if they don't start shaping up. But that's not what we're here for. These are the episodes that among the cesspool of bad ones, managed to surprise me. Are they as good as classic episodes? (In most cases? No.) So you can call this a list of the surprisingly good season 5+ epi…Read more >
Just thought I'd let some of you know who didn't know that it was my birthday yesterday on the 8th. I was kinda busy with other stuff and tomorrow I'm going to be going out to eat, so I'll probably be quite busy tomorrow.
For those who know me, thank you. And for those who don't? You can say it to me anyway. I may be a cynic, but I appreciate all the birthday wishes.
PS: If you didn't know the calendar on the Discord server has been restricted to admins only so I couldn't put my birthday up there.
Here's to another year of ponies, regardless of how I feel about the show now, this wiki has introduced me to some very wonderful people, and while I'm not fond of the current episodes, the classic ones will always have a special place in my heart. …Read more >
You may notice I haven't been nearly as active as I used to be on both chat and the wiki. No that's not because of Discord, but I'm admitting it: I hate MLP now.
I used to like the show for being a clever slice of life show but now it's clearly become the opposite of what it was before and has made me appreciate each new episode less and less. I can't relate to any of the main cast anymore because they are clearly much younger than me (Equestria Girls all but confirms they're only slightly older than the CMC) and my crush on Rainbow Dash is unrequited and kinda creepy so I'm backing off.
In addition, I am also retiring my chat mod position because this move to discord is something I am very opposed to. As of this blog, I am leaving this wiki…Read more >

Let's get started with my revised list.
5. What About Discord?: To me this will always be Neal Dusedau's worst episode. No no, it's not about ponies discovering a Skype-like chat application used primarily for gaming, but instead we get an episode that always rubbed me the wrong way. For one, the mane five seem to casually keep Twilight Sparkle out of the loop. I've seen episodes of where this kind of plotpoint can be used intelligently and be a fantastic episode see The Mysterious Box episode of Spongebob. But this episode just hurt me with how cruel it was to Twilight. If Newbie Dash and The Mysterious Mare Do Well are the Dashabuse episodes, then What About Discord is the Twiabuse episode. And it doesn't even end on a high note, literall…
