With the new My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic movie coming in a couple months, the time is ripe for Bronies everywhere to spread their Love and Tolerance and assimilate new members into the herd! But how? By showing those who are still on the fence just how good the show is!
For the next 10 weeks, I will be talking about my picks for the top 20 best episodes, and the top 20 worst episodes. I’m starting with the bad ones to get them out of the way quicker. These are the ones I feel you should avoid showing to those fence-sitters you wish to recruit. Bad writing! Characters written way out of character, even for Pinkie Pie! (one of the flaws of the show is that the writers seem to think because Pinkie is the crazy one of the group, they can write her any way they like) I will present these episodes by degree of increasing annoyance. The higher we go on the countdown, the more they annoyed me. But what about the worst episodes? Oh, that’s another countdown, don’t worry. So, here’s our starter.
