DQ's episode order from best to worst

After I failed Fake It 'Til You Make It, I decided to put all 28 failed episodes in order from worst F- minus to least worst F+. That list eventually expanded into a complete list of episodes I graded, from the best letter-plus episode to the worst letter-minus, .

The statuses can be found here: A episodes, B episodes, C episodes, D episodes, and F episodes. With each list compiled, I'm taking every episode in the show and arranged it in order from the best to the worst. The list is always subject to change; episodes could be upgraded or downgraded at anytime.

S9 episodes are in bold underline.

To see every piece of FIM media I graded (and how I graded each episode for each season), click here. That gets updated during each season and possibly in between or during the offseason, if I changed one.

And for readability purposes, I sectioned each list with "— — —" in between. Let's begin! :D

Some S8 episodes are in Top 50, i am hyped now. :catface:

Most hyped S8 episodes:

Horse Play

Surf and Turf

Break Up Break Down


Parent Map is kinda 'meh' and The Mean 6 is just decent (the lack of background musics might ruin my enjoyment a little bit).

The only way Break Up Breakdown could possibly be any good is if Big Mac and Sugar Belle break up and all instances of SugarMac are erased from existence. I DESPISED Hard To Say Anything.

An interesting list! :) Most of the top episodes are also among my favorites (though I haven't made a detailed list myself). But "Twilight's Kingdom" is 85 places higher for me. ;)
