I can't watch MLP anymore. I mean, I still can, but the motivation's no longer in me any more.
I used to watch the show for its world building. You know, all the mythical creatures, the Windigoes, the Changelings, the dragons... Heck it was mostly because, in the first and second season, they barely went anywhere within Equestria, and all of these magical creatures and stuff would be just around them. Better yet, they made sense. And for some reason, every episode was a new part of their world that'd be shown, or a part of the world's past. Heck, that changeling invasion was almost sad, if you thought about it. Creatures that had to feed on love to surivive--or maybe not. Maybe they just had to because of their queen. And wait, they've got these huge crystal caverns underneath Canterlot? They've got a pink alicorn princess? This day aria? I mean, heck, even the song caused interest to swell up in me. "This day is going to be perfect..." a "day I've dreamed about since I was small." Chrysalis herself was interesting. Fudge, it wasn't even just that invasion, the first season was incredibly interesting. The first and second episode was set up like an action movie. All in all, I think the quality and care was just better in the first, the second, and the (half of) third season. It made me want to learn more about that fictional world, it's characters, and their past! After all, they'd already set up the idea that that world was ginormous!
But, after Twilight's alicornization, they just... Stopped, and that upset me greatly.
I dunno how the show is anymore, as I couldn't bear to watch the fourth season or the rest. But, if I heard the show's got interesting again somehow... I'll probably watch it again. But for now... I'll just be doing other things. From what I've read in this thread alone, I don't think I'm the only one who feels exactly how I feel about the show.
