I really dropped off the grid as far as opinions on Pony goes, so I'm going to assume I'm alone in my thoughts. Let me know what you think, what the popular opinions are and/or why I'm wrong. lol
Season 5 started off with a pretty interesting concept. Giant quest giving map. That's pretty great and got me hyped. That whole equality village was pretty neat. But from there on, I felt like there was an essential something missing from the stories.
I don't know if I just became accidentally jaded or some writers left or something but the majority of Season 5 felt.....forced???
When there were good episodes, they were good. But all the rest felt almost like an extended Season 3. Alright but sorta lackluster.
For instance, the episodes I'd have no problem putting on repeat and just rolling with are Make New Friends but Keep Discord, Slice of Life, and maybe Scare Master. Compare that to basically every other episode of Season 4.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not looking for them to 1-Up the fight with Tirek, but something just seems different to me. Not just the show proper either. I felt like the 3rd Equestria Girls movie, while still good, didn't live up to the 2nd which I could, and have, watched over and over again.
So, is it just me??? I really am trying to be all objective and look at it not as a fan of Pony but as a fan of stories. Am I alone in my thoughts? I don't like being alone. It's dark and cold there.
Anyways, I'm looking forward to the finale regardless. I'm hoping it will provide as much potential for the next season as Season 4 did for this one!
