Damn, I haven't been watching any MLP since fall of last year. Ah well, at least I've let go of this stuff...if only for a while. It's getting embarrassing now that my sister knows. It's nerve-wracking, having to put up with these thoughts every time I think about watching a new episode.
Why worry about it? Just watch what you enjoy.
I thought it was pretty great. I also liked how Spike-focused the episode was.
