The Trouble with Season 3 by dammitjen The Trouble with Season 3 by dammitjen
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.

Here's another one: When a toy promotion changes a character's physical appearance, fire shall rain as the sky becomes darker than the blackest void!

Are you planing to extend this after Season 4?

I read fanfiction and I seem to create an incredible crossover between the magic of My Little Pony and the world of Skylanders. Please check out my gallery when you get the chance. But find the chapter, 'The Oracle and Arkus' That's where somepony made her first appearance, but only temporary.

Until what happen in season 4, it's comes next time. If Twilight Sparkle stays herself as a princess alicorn forever, then people would think my little pony friendship is magic will be cancelled.

This makes me glad I haven't seen Season 3. I stopped watching new episodes three quarters of the way through Season 2.

Oh, and with regards to jumping the shark, I think you're late. I consider Lesson Zero to be the shark jumping episode.

Damn we saw different things.
Personally, I saw:
-your friends may want to do different things and it's okay to not spend time with all of them at once, pace yourself
-If you're being bullied, try looking a little deeper into it before getting revenge on your bully, as that's not the way to deal with it
-It's better to face your fears
-Don't try to go overboard in things
-Normal friendship lesson, coupled with 'sometimes the person like that needs a chance for friendship'
-Same as Apple Family Reunion
-Eh, I'll admit a filler episode
-Plot device that people should stop complaining about until they see where it's going

Well, the third chart seems quite... off, especially when compared to the first two. Also...

:iconobjection4plz::iconobjection5plz::iconobjection6plz:The last lesson on the third chart completely contradicts the first lesson of the first chart! If there is no wrong way to be a girl, then that means not every girl wants to be a princess, unless not having that desire is wrong, which would mean no wrong way! And due to the fact the third chart seems extremely sarcastic... *Dramatic closeup* It seems the first chart would most likely be the one telling the truth!

You clearly didn't watch the season 3 finale carefully enough. Celestia gave a fully reasonable explanation why Twilight became an Alicorn.

I'm pretty sure its going to end. Bronies who think it will go on for 8 seasons are perfectly wrong. What I'm guessing is that the show will end on Season 4.
