I was an avid watcher around season 1, and enjoyed the first bit of season 2, but after watching Death Note, Futurama, and The Venture Brothers, I was rather dissapointed.
I absolutely hated Pinkie Pie in season 1. And the funny this is, I relate to Dash the most and the episode that made me start liking Pinkie was the Gilda one where RD becomes better friends with her.
I the first time I watched the end of S1E2, “Friendship is Magic, Part 2”
And I still do
I was depressed when the writers erased Luna out of existence throughout season 1 after the 2 part pilot - 2/9/2012 3:26AM
I really don’t like the first two episodes of Season 1. They’re poorly written, the plot is rushed, and for some reason everyone is surprised that Luna is Celestia’s sister, even Twilight, even though she read that they were sisters in the first 5 minutes of the first episode. If I ever find anyone who wants to get into the show, I’m gonna tell them to start with Episode 3…
