Maximum comfy, just the right balance of everything. The world is interesting and idyllic, the character dynamics are nice, no explicitly bad episodes, extremely charming all around.
A little bit more action and adventure, but the writers get this bizarre hate-boner for Rainbow Dash, as they make her the punching bag of the season. And I'm still mad they butchered the opening scene to The Last Roundup, all for some tranny and its goons pretending to be "concerned parents". They also shove in a pink Alicorn Princess at the finale, because those sell the most toys. All that aside, still a pretty good season.
Is half the number of episodes, so Hasbro can shill their answer to Brappz dolls, and what remains is hit-or-miss. They also fuck with the character dynamic to make Twilight more toyetic. Overall, I'd still recommend it, but the cracks were starting to show.
The writers clearly had no idea what to do with Princess Twilight Sparkle. They tried to recapture some Season 1 charm by having an overarching plot that gradually builds up to the season finale, which is neat, even if the payoff to the mystery box is disappointing. From what I remember off the top of my head, an okay season overall. The Apple Family Reunion was my favorite.
Was such dog shit, I tapped out after the finale. Starts off kinda promising, with a mildly interesting villain, who proceeds to fuck off until the finale. Practically the whole season is memebaiting and missed opportunities. There's a 200th episode special starring background characters that's nonstop brony circlejerk. I was into that kind of fanon stuff, and I still
fucking hated it. The CMC get their cutie marks in a really contrived way, and instead of giving them the actual talents that were hinted at in Season 1, they're just Cutie Mark Crusaders Forever now. Worst of all is how fugly their actual cutie marks ended up being: matching coat-of-arms emblems, using all 3 of the CMC's mane colors for the color scheme, without realizing how badly it'd clash with their individual coat colors. And the finale was one big timetraveling "what-if" of ideas lifted from fanfics, like the writers teasing "look at all this stuff you could
have if we weren't such lazy cunts who can't deviate from formula." And it ends with Twilight befriending an inflamed asshole who repeatedly tried to destroy Equestria for the flimsiest of reasons, because "that could've been me if I went full-nofriends." While the real reason is that the writers realized it was a mistake to have Twilight realize her dream before the series was anywhere near over, and they needed a blank slate unicorn for further friendship lessons.
