FIM never had a better introduction to the season than Season 5 parade of the commies in commietown.

This is quickly becoming my favorite season.

"Feel like an air drop?"

That settles it. This is the best episode.

I was gearing myself up for this premiere like dinner with the in-laws or something. But when it was over with, I was pleased with it overall.
It's a weird feeling: for two years now, I've been used to hating the premiere/finales, and now I really like this one. I almost don't know what to do with myself.

One thing I liked best about this episode is it reminded me of that episode of powerpuff girls when the towns people finally took care of themselves.

I like the fact that other ponies can show some independence without needing twilight and friends 100% of the time.

I can relate.

Well I don't know about that.

I mean, last season's premiere two-parter also had a pretty wonderful start, showing the scene of Luna' and Discord's banishment and all.

Those were pretty cool parts, but I felt like those hardly had anything to do with the actual story, except for "Look, elements! Elements are being used! And elements are part of the plot! ELEMENTS!!!!"
I have a feeling those were put in for eye candy more than anything.

It turns out when you have actively useless characters in your party, you have to invent bizarre ways for them to contribute in episode after episode.

Meanwhile, you have to work to disable the abilities of your powerful characters so that they don't dominate every encounter.

I wish they'd tone down the cutie magic. Our thrones make our asses glow and lead us to where we're needed, then start flashing when we're done. That's not what cutie marks are for... But this is the season of cutie magic toys.

It also reminded me of the needle on the Carebears caring meter.

>writing awkward workarounds is somehow to be expected
Perhaps. Debating that is a tangent I don't feel like following. But don't draw extra attention to the weaknesses in your writing. There was absolutely no point to having her balk at going, then change her mind. Wasn't even comical. She could've filled the same eventual role without that debate at the beginning. Hell, Spike could've too, making his sudden fascination with sportball pretty pointless as well.

Only 20 minutes per show and they waste time on this sort of stupid shit. Thanks Larson!
