After seeing the show being praised for so many years, I decided to give in and watch it. My first episode was Spike at your Service and that wasn't a very good episode to start with, but the reason I watched it was because Merriwether Williams wrote it. After watching that episode I thought the show was overrated without giving it a second chance. Later I decided to watch another episode and it was much better. I don't like the show enough to consider myself a brony, but I do enjoy watching it from time to time.
