Hello folks! This post is to all my viewers who don't watch the regularly and have not seen any episodes yet. With 3 seasons worth of episodes you're probably wondering, "Where do I even start?". Well, you could always start with the first episode (which is a two parter)...
I think they are great first episodes. These episode also introduce a change in the My Little Pony series as a whole. Gone are the days of shallow, flat characters. Now their are rounded characters with flaws and goals. Actual conflict and evil characters that could potentially harm the characters on the show (It's kinda hard to live without sunlight. Think about it.). An art style that does not make you roll your eyes in doubt. It's great!
If you don't want to sit through 44 minutes of this show, you could try watching a single parter episode. In seasons 1 and 2, you can watch the episodes out of order and not care about the continuity, but once you get into the show, watching them in order is highly satisfying.
If I was going to show a person who was new to the show an episode, I would show him an episode called "Dragonshy"...
I find this to be a great starter episode because it involves all the mane cast, a good conflict and resolution, and has a good number of funny and awesome bits in the episode. It also proves that the characters are not flat as people think they are. Lastly, it does all this in 22 minutes, where the pilot does this in 44 minutes.
I hope these episodes I picked out change you mind about the series and makes you wanna watch them more. If it didn't, oh well, I tried. No ones forcing you to like it.
