I won't get into a big emotional fuss, but I'm pretty disappointed in the latest season of MLP. I want to reserve a little bit of my judgment until I see how Season 4 goes, but Season 3 was rather weak storytelling, which I've tried to highlight here by juxtaposing the messages that SE03 episodes send compared to 1 and 2. (some of the messages are deliberate and some unintentional). Kid's show or not, the creative team and execs seemed to have treated their audiences like idiots this season.
Honestly, I think the show has jumped the shark, but I wanna see what happens in Season 4.
