Well, it was nice while it lasted. · 5:28pm Aug 26th, 2016

Some nihilist has clicked the 'dislike' button on Letters From an Irradiated Princess, sending it down to be ranked 523rd on the site. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Hubris, tragedy, etc. I suppose I am no longer best at pony.

(Still, I take entirely too much pleasure when my stories apparently are in the top 1% of fanfics on the site).

And now, time to go be productive on some other stuff! In theory.

Ranking The Writers of FiM, From Worst to Best (Version 2) · 12:01am Nov 15th, 2016

I did this only once before, after Season 5, but I figured the list could be updated now that some new writers have been added and some of the old writers have had a chance to try and change the impressions they've gotten. So if you're interested, here's the original version. Like always, I mean no disrespect to the DHX staff, and just like before I'm not going to be counting Lauren

Top Ten Unicorns, Version 3 · 5:05pm Nov 1st, 2016

We had a couple of new unicorns introduced to us this season, so I think it's time to update the list again. Here's the second version, from the end of Season 5. Time to find who made it onto the list this time around!

Top Ten Stallions, Version 4 · 8:44pm Nov 2nd, 2016

Spike and Discord weren't the only ones this season who got better roles in terms of male characters. This season, at least early on, had a ton of really strong male characters, even if we didn't get a whole lot of new stallions. Granted, it wasn't completely perfect, we still had male characters like Zephyr Breeze and Sky Stinger, but for the most part the good outweighs the bad. In any case, here's the

Ranking The Reformations Of FiM, From Worst to Best · 6:50pm Nov 7th, 2016

Starlight Glimmer's reformation continues to remain a divisive subject among the fandom, with some people praising her, other condemning her, and many others (like myself) being more neutral to her while generally leaning more towards love or hate for her. One of the most common complaints is that Starlight's reformation pails in comparison to Sunset Shimmer's and that she was a bad attempt at creating a Sunset Shimmer character in the show since the writers and show staff said

Season 5 Episode Rankings, From Worst to Best · 12:21am Dec 1st, 2015

Time to see how the episodes of Season 5 stack up. Remember, this is just my opinion. This is going to be kind of tricky though, considering how good most of the episodes were.

26. What About Discord?
25. Appleloosa's Most Wanted
24. Castle, Sweet Castle
23. Princess Spike

Season 5 Song Rankings (From Worst to Best) · 5:02am Dec 3rd, 2015

Another season has come and gone, and since we already saw how the episodes stack up, let's take a look and see how the songs faired. Season 5 offered some pretty good ones, including quite a few from two musical episodes. But we had some pretty long droughts between songs, as was evidenced by the gap between "Tanks For The Memories" and "Canterlot Boutique".

Episode Rankings of Season 3, From Worst To Best (Version 3) · 9:02pm Mar 15th, 2017

By now the drill should be obvious, though this one probably won't see as significant of changes compared to the others. Here's the previous version, remember that this list is the result of my personal opinion, so feel free to disagree.

Top Five Strongest Writers of FiM, Version 2 · 4:40am Nov 18th, 2017

Just like Season 7 brought some changes for the weakest show writers, it also changed some things for the strongest show writers, so we're gonna look at them again. Here's the first version, from a season ago. Let's see what changed.

Top Ten Opening Sequences of FiM, Version 2 · 5:04am Nov 25th, 2017

Hope all of you stayed safe and avoided getting trampled if you had to go out shopping on this Black Friday, we're going to be ending these Top Ten lists for the show tonight, and I wanted to go out on a positive instead of a negative note. We updated the worst opening sequences last time, so now we're gonna update the best opening sequences. Here's the first version, from a season ago. Let's see what got added,

Top Twenty Songs of MLP FiM, Version 2 · 4:40pm Jun 23rd, 2017

While we've already gotten three of the five songs that will be in this season, and it's too soon to know how well the remaining two will be recieved, I figure that with two new songs having made it into my favorites, the time has come to update this list. Here's the previous version, from the end of Season 6. Like always, this list is not in any way official, so feel free to disagree (just so long as you respect my

Ranking The Writers of Season 7 · 3:38am Nov 13th, 2017

Season 7 saw a lot of new writers enter the fold, and very few veteran writers come back. Normally, this tends to lead to seasonal rot in animated shows, particularly in cases where the new writers don't bother to watch what's already out there first. But this show managed to defy that trend, as Season 7 topped Season 6 by a clear margin (though it was by no means a landslide). But how much of that was because of the new writers? And which of the new writers were among the best (or among the

Top Five Weakest Writers of FiM, Version 2 · 3:24am Nov 17th, 2017

Well, considering the new writers of Season 7, I felt this list needed a revisiting and revising. Rest assured that the Top Five Best Writers will get the same treatment tomorrow. Here's the first version, from a season ago. Let's see what changed. And as always, I mean no disrespect to anyone at Hasbro or DHX.

Ranking The Movie Songs · 4:14pm Apr 8th, 2018

We covered the characters, now it's time to cover the songs of the movie. I will not be counting the ponyfication of "We Got The Beat", because it's not an original song composed for the movie (and in my opinion it's a pretty lazy way to open the movie, what would've been wrong with an instrumental opening?). That means there's a total of seven songs to count. And obviously, the rankings are a reflection of my personal opinion. So don't get upset if a song you really liked is low on the list,

Time to bring these updated rankings to a close. Let's see how the episodes of Season 7 stack up now compared to how they did at the end of Season 7. As always, this list is the result of my personal opinion, so please respect it. And don't hesitate to ask if you want to know why a certain episode ends up where it does. Here's the first version, let's see what changed.

Ranking the Halloween/Nightmare Night Episodes (From Worst to Best) · 2:29pm Mar 21st, 2019

Alongside Christmas and Valentine's Day, Halloween is the only holiday to get a pony equivalent. Ever since the second season we've had it established as Nightmare Night. We've actually only had two official episodes take place on the holiday, but just like with Hearts and Hooves Day for Valentine's Day there are some episodes that could be said to have a Halloween feel to them (of course, not just any episode taking place at night or involving spooky imagery will qualify).

Ranking the Season Finales (From Worst to Best) · 3:59pm Mar 15th, 2019

From Season Premieres to Season Finales, just as it's important to start off on a good note it's equally important to end on a good note. You've heard people complain all the time about how bad endings can ruin a movie or a video game, and the same can hold true for shows. Sometimes all it can take is one bad finale to irreversably damage your following and aliennate fans. But of the 8 finales to consider, which ones stood out the most for better or for worse, and why? How did the finales

Ranking the Discord Episodes (From Worst to Best) · 2:54pm Mar 5th, 2019

Discord was the first (but certainly not the last) major villain to get reformed and was also the first guest star character (voiced by John DeLancie). Perhaps fitting for a spirit of chaos he'd had many ups and downs over the course of his many episodes, all 16 of them. And today we're going to be looking at how they stack up, which ones do him justice and which ones are insults to his character. There are no hybrid episodes to consider this time, every episode he's appeared in counts as his

Top Fifteen Opening Sequences of FiM · 3:20pm Oct 29th, 2018

Season 8 brought about a few interesting opening sequences that I think were worth talking about, and ultimately I felt like they didn't quite justify bumping off some other contestants for a Top Ten list. So I expanded it to a Top Fifteen list, and this is what we have. As always, feel free to disagree. If you're curious here's the top ten version, from a season ago. Let's see what changed.

Ranking the Guys Night and SugarMac Trilogies (From Worst to Best) · 5:23pm Oct 8th, 2019

People often refer to "Owl's Well That Ends Well", "Dragon Quest", and "Spike At Your Service" as part of an unholy trilogy or trio of episodes. So I think it's nice to look at some trilogies that are actually you know.... good. The Guys Night Trilogy refers to the three episodes centered on Spike, Big Macintosh, and Discord, while the SugarMac Trilogy refers to the three episodes focusing on the SugarMac relationship. Since both trilogies ultimately share two episodes there really is no point
