You ever watch a series, get half way through an episode, and get a distinct impression that you’re watching the final episode of the entire thing? That happened to me, and it was sad. I started watching this show on a lark, was happy with the humor and songs and constant character growth, and stayed on board because it continued to be great. There was a time that I would mention the show to friends, but with the advent of the toxic brony fandom, I stopped doing that, but if you’re able to watch it for what it is, a show about friends learning lessons and keeping that knowledge in future episodes, set to song, and accompanied by Q from Star Trek.
