one thing I like about the new episode is that Spike mentions getting his claws done, which I assume is like a manicure and it's treated like a normal thing for him to do.

Well, with a dawn of a new season, it's time to bring this back! For those of you who don't remember my old threads, the schtick is that we look at the same numbered episodes from each season and compare them across the board. It's a fun little way to see which seasons really stand out from the rest. Sometimes the choices are easy. Other times doing a proper ranking is really hard and which episode falls where just comes down to how I feel that day.

So, the season premiers. Every single one of them have been a two-parter, so we can compare episodes one and two as a whole. Now, I've only seen the fifth season's premiere once thus far at the time of writing, but I feel like I can accurately rank my thoughts thus far based on my own emotional scale.

The Return of Harmony > Cutie Markless > Princess Twilight Sparkle > Friendship is Magic > The Crystal Empire

The Return of Harmony still stands as my favorite start to a season. Discord's introduction is still possibly his strongest showing, and the drama of corrupting the mane six made the first episode cliffhanger the most effective of the entire series. The ending, however, is very much rushed as it would have been nice to get more out of fixing the characters other than Applejack. Still, in a way it feels more than an actual conclusion to Season 1 than Best Night Ever, if I may be so honest.

You know, for a new episode whose opinion I'm still formulating, placing Cutie Markless at number two is a pretty bold statement, especially since isn't nearly as investing to me as much of its competition. However, apart from some repetitive dialogue in the beginning, it is hugely refreshing for what we've come to expect from a two-parter. The plot itself was well written and well paced, there's some great additional new lore, the promise of a returning villain, new and intriguing characters (even if they could use more screen time), and the fact that TWILIGHT wasn't the crux of saving the day for once! I just feel like out of all the premiers, this one has the least I can complain about.

Princess Twilight Sparkle, by my own admission, is more

It may not technically be as good as the others, but I still like the series premiere for a lot of the things it established, and making the best use of its time. Something that most of the other season openers struggle with.

Cutie Markless has a lot of interesting ideas. Probably more then other episodes, but I don't particularly care for how it was executed. It needed a bit more complexity and development for the Town and Starlight Glimmer for the things it was trying to do to really shine. Without it it kind of feels lacking.

Return of Harmony I think is the most overrated of the premieres. I actually found Discord to be simultaneously overpowered, and unthreatening. Contradictory sounding I know, but that's just how I feel.

Princess Twilight Sparkle did not need to be two episodes and overall just felt unecessary.

The Crystal Empire is just plain not good.

Friendship is magic is the ONE episode that I would want to see remade and done again.

It had so much potential, and failed to live up to everything it could have been. Not to say that its BAD. I like it. Its just it could have been done so much better.

Make the Mane six exemplifying their elements be done better and less hokey (AJ's for example is really bad since she didn't really DO anything that a normal person wouldn't have done. there was zero incentive to life in such a situation).

Show us more of Nightmare moon and Celestia, maybe some flashbacks. Hell, maybe have Celestia imprisoned by Luna with Luna preparing a spell to send Celestia to the moon, with it being stopped by the mane six arriving. Give us some more insight to the two.

Similarities:

1. Similar Names: A sparkling twilight and a glimmering starlight are very similar scenes

2. Same talents: Both ponies studied magic for years, and appear to have similar cutiemarks

3. Same mission: Twilight Sparkle wants to spread friendship and harmony all across Equestria. Starlight Glimmer wanted to spread friendship and harmony all across Equestria

Differences:

Is this what I think it is? Collapsing toy/push puppet? They're little old toy things with internal strings, and if you compress the base, the model goes limp. Once you release it goes back to being taut.

I've been thinking of seeing if there was a market for these kind of pone toys, especially one for Pinkie Pie since the models behave most like pronking.

I shot my mouth off without thinking. "Smile, Smile, Smile" has perfectly okay (if blah) rhymes until the last verse and the wind-up at the end. As MLP lyrics go, it's practically Cole Porter.

Naah, German's about like English when it comes to number of rhymes per word. French-speakers think German, Dutch, and English all sound very similar.

I'm predicting Trixie and Glimmer are estranged sisters. It just fits too well - Glimmer's attitude stemming from Trixie being an insufferable braggart, both leaving home on their opposing missions. It's even likely that Glimmer discovered her talent for manipulating other ponies by playing on her friends' dislike of Trixie.

Well, Cadance sure doesn't cover Philia, that's Twilight's job now.

We've only seen her handle romantic love so far, so I'm guessing that's her department.

So does this mean she has her own Cutie Map and she and Shining travel Equestria helping ponies get married or something?
