Eh, so far, I'm liking it. Only thing that's keeping me from getting into it are the messages are simplified to the point they get messed up. I know it's a kids show and so lessons need to be watered down, but not to that extent >.< like I said before, the episode about Twilight discovering friendship just came across as forcing company on someone and made anyone who liked to have alone time look like depressed hermits who miss out on life. Considering how friggen popular it is, the show has a responsibility to teach values that aren't ass backwards when applied to real life.
Me and a friend were discussing this, and he came up with something brilliant. Pinkie loses her favourite blanket. Looks, can't find. Becomes depressed. The others get her a new one, but it's not the same, and only makes it worse. With the happiest character all mopey and reclusive, it drags everyone else down as well. In the end, it was not under her bed, and a magical fairy does not return it. Pinkie accepts that it's gone, and will never come back, and yeah, it's guna hurt for a while, and may never stop hurting, but having said that, there's no point in stopping your life over the unchangeable. She's gotta keep moving forward, and when no ones looking, she secretly cherishes the blanky everyone else got her, because of who bought it and why.
I dunno if later episodes try and tackle these kinds of messages, but I honestly think kids shows who teach their lessons ass backwards are being irresponsible.
