Educate Emma: TV: Friendship is Magic S2

Hah, you thought I was done with this series, didn't you? INCORRECT. I am still confused as to why My Little Pony is so popular, but I still love watching its cleverness. And I liked season two even better. I felt like it tackled more interesting story lines and the writing was really coming into its own. Episodes like Lesson Zero made me laugh about how applicable they are to my own life. (Yes, Twilight Sparkle is my spirit animal. Hardcore, organizational, I-hate-people spirit animal.) I also liked how they played with the structure of the show on episodes like MMMystery on the Friendship Express, which dealt with a mystery. I think the crowning glory of this season, though, was its finale. The two parter A Canterlot Wedding was a lot more awesome than the season one finale, and handled more of that large-scale-evil that was managed in the pilot. The show is still my favourite guilty pleasure, and it's so funny. Maybe by next season's ending, I'll officially fall in line with the internet's hoard of bronies. If not, I'll still have a great time with this seriously clever kid's show.

Favourite episodes: A Canterlot Wedding was my all time favourite, but Luna Eclipsed was really sweet and endearing. It's About Time sated both my need to watch Twilight Sparkle and my obsession with time travel. Putting Your Hoof Down was hilarious, and probably the first Fluttershy oriented episode that I adored.

Least favourite episodes: Err, I'm seriously having trouble with this one. If I had to, I guess I found The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000 to be a tad boring.

  1. We're not sure how we've escaped this show (given that one of us has two girls aged 7 and 5) but we've heard lots of good things!
