    MLP: FIM Season 6 Episode Rankings

    Well, even though I ranked every single episode in order from all 6 seasons, which you then should be able to understand my ranking of season 6's episodes, I still got requests to do season 6 on its own. Well, mainly from just one person, since sadly no one seems to care about my rankings or thoughts, but I'll go ahead and do it anyway. Here are my rankings of all the episodes from season 6 (in

    Crusaders Of The Lost Mark

    Yes. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! All of my yes! Easily, bar none, the best episode in the entire series! I can't recall the last time I've shed this many tears throughout an entire episode. I mean...where do I begin? Diamond Tiara actually confirming my thoughts that she's not a bad girl and it's just her upbringing...Silver Spoon showing morals even before Diamond Tiara did...Applejack's parents

    Equestria Girls: Friendship Games Is Amazing!

    It really is the best one in the series yet. It doesn't go overboard like the first movie with its odd character development and plot-holes, and it isn't just mean-spirited and boring like the second one...not that the first two were bad, but still. Friendship Games had an amazing story that didn't really have a true villain; it just worked on its own merits. I won't go into spoilers, in case you

Ranking All My Little Pony Episodes & Seasons · 4:48am Oct 25th, 2016

So, with the help of a program called Preference Revealer, I have ranked all 143 episodes spanning across all six seasons of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Now let me make it clear that these are MY OPINIONS and if anyone who reads this disagrees with my choices (which is definitely likely), then good for you and I'm glad you were able to get something out of episodes I either didn't care for or hated, just like I got something out of episodes YOU didn't care for or hated.

First off, I find it really interesting how I wound up with exactly 2 hated episodes from each season, which is honestly very fair. Even if you're a lame individual that tries to say crap like "I love ALL the episodes, because I love the whole series, and there ARE no episodes I hate!", because that's a bold-faced lie, it's still nice to spread out the love between seasons and appreciate each one for what it is. So, if I total up the number of episodes in the first three categories (Adored, Loved, Liked) and then the three at the bottom (Boring, Annoying, Hated), leaving the ones in the middle alone (Indifferent), this would be my rankings of the seasons:

BEST SEASON:
Season 6:
Liked Episodes: 15
Indifferent Episodes: 3
Disliked Episodes: 8
Season 6 is #1 not because of how recent it’s been and having a bias to that, but because of just how much fun a lot of the episodes were. There are really two types of MLP episodes when you break things down: serious and sweet episodes, and crazy and entertaining episodes. Both of them are what make the show great. Personally, I love the latter just a little bit more, but that’s just me. And season 6 had a great deal of both, almost doubling the amount of good episodes compared to bad ones.

2ND BEST SEASON:
Season 5:
Liked Episodes: 13
Indifferent Episodes: 7
Disliked Episodes: 6
Season 5 is just behind at #2. As you can see, a lot of the episodes were hit-or-miss, depending on what you like, but there were still a good number of great ones. A lot of redemption and redeeming going on in this season (Gilda, Twilight’s Friends, Diamond Tiara, Starlight Glimmer), and a lot of sweet moments (Twilight getting used to her castle, Tank hibernating, Luna overcoming her own nightmares, Apple Bloom bonding with Big Macintosh, the Crusaders getting their marks, Shining Armor & Cadance having a baby, the Pie and Apple families getting together for the holiday, Applejack reuniting with an old friend), so overall the season was less on craziness and more on touching your heart. Plus, it DID have the amazing fan service episode “Slice Of Life”, which kicked ass.

3RD BEST SEASON:
Season 4:
Liked Episodes: 12
Indifferent Episodes: 6
Disliked Episodes: 8
Season 4 is a heavy mixed bag, but it still had 12 liked episodes and only 8 disliked ones, so it’s #3 on my list. There was a lot of failures on this season (the Equestria Games, a lame attempt at Mane Six superhero comic characters, pathetic vampire bats, Rarity being a bitch, the Wonderbolts being dicks, Applejack somehow acting like a child), but there was a lot of highlights as well (Daring Do being proven to be real, Pinkie and Applejack more or less being proven to be related, Discord episodes, Weird Al Yankovic, Maud Pie, Rarity going insane with power, Twilight fighting a monster from Hell). It’s all over the place. A lot of groaners, but a lot of delights, too. Take the good with the bad and you get season 4.

4TH BEST SEASON:
Season 2:
Liked Episodes: 10
Indifferent Episodes: 5
Disliked Episodes: 11
Season 2 is technically the third worst season for me, or the fourth best, depending on if you see the glass as half-full or half-empty. Personally, because I had 11 bad episodes and only 10 good ones, this season is more of a half-empty season. They improved a lot from season 1 and began making things more interesting, but it wasn’t quite there yet. Since the bottom three seasons are literally the first three in the series, I think it goes to show that they hit their stride from season 4 onward. There were some huge highlights from season 2 (Twilight going insane, Luna getting an episode, the Derpy controversy, Rainbow Dash enjoying reading, Fluttershy actually being hilarious for once, Twilight yet again going insane with time travel, the introduction of Changelings), but a lot of crap as well (Dash’s friends pretty much giving her depression by becoming Mare Do Well, an episode about the Cake babies, Spike being stupid a lot, the Crusaders being even dumber). Not the worst, but not that great.

5TH BEST SEASON:
Season 3:
Liked Episodes: 5
Indifferent Episodes: 0
Disliked Episodes: 8
Season 3 is the second-to-worst season, which may be a bit unfair since it’s the only season to have 13 episodes, but it is what it is. Ironically, I either didn’t like or really liked all 13 episodes this season, and was indifferent on none of them. Sadly, since I only liked five of them, that says it all. The highlights were easily the amazing Fluttershy/Discord episode, the touching Scootaloo/Dash/Luna episode, the Trixie/Twilight episode, and the Babs Seed episode. Sadly, it couldn’t make up for a horrendous Spike episode, an annoying Pinkie Pie episode, a dreadful and controversial finale, a boring and anticlimactic two-part premiere, and just not all that memorable others. Some big highs, but too many lows, sadly.

WORST SEASON:
Season 1:
Liked Episodes: 3
Indifferent Episodes: 4
Disliked Episodes: 19
Season 1, shockingly, winds up as the worst season. I know this seems sacrilegious to say, but when I went back and looked at all these episodes…I’m sorry, but they were honestly just really boring or lame when compared to the great stuff we’ve gotten the past three seasons. We had an episode about Twilight’s friends wanting a gala ticket. An episode on simply introducing Apple Bloom. An episode on Celestia’s pet phoenix. An episode about Fluttershy being scared of modeling. An episode of Fluttershy staring at things, including one of her scolding a dragon. An episode about cutie marks. I mean, it goes on and on. Sure, you can say the episodes are “simplistic, yet memorable” and that they’re “the ones that got us into the series and thus are amazing in their own way”, but I just don’t see it that way. Just because it was the first season doesn’t make it that amazing. The first Final Fantasy wasn’t that good. The Playstation 1 sucks compared to the later ones. Survivor Borneo really isn’t that great. Harry Potter & The Sorcerer’s Stone wasn’t…well…okay, it was pretty good. But you get what I mean.

Quite interesting. I too find Season 6 to be the best, but there's still room for improvement in Season 7, and I think it's saying something when each season to me at least is better than the previous one. Season 1 was a good starting point, but it took until "Suited For Success" for the show to find its identity prior to that it kind of drifted from place to place. And even once it hit its stride it was hampered by clashes between Lauren Faust and Hasbro with the DHX staff caught in the middle and trying to walk a desperate tightrope between pleasing one or the other. Season 2 was largely free of this as Lauren began to transition away, but the last few episodes were hindered by being the show's first attempts at going against Lauren's vision. Season 3 was the transition, since it was only a half season. Season 4 started the show's growing of the beard, and Season 5 finished it. Season 6 seems to largely be continuing from there, but at times it seems they weren't doing as well as they could have (P.P.O.V. (Pony Point Of View) being a good example).

Also, I'm curious as to how the episodes of Season Six stack up in your book.
