    First off, there is a reason why Sunset's arc is regarded as one of the best redemption arcs in the series

    Honestly, not really. It was kind of the same as Starlight's redemption arc. Predictable from the beginning.

    Second off, MLP's biggest problem is their snapshot redemptions, with Twilight handing them out like candy with no consequences for their actions and almost everyone trusting them immediately.

    And you wouldn't say Sunset's redemption is a "snapshot redemption"? I honestly feel Discord's redemption had more meaning than Sunset's.

    Personally I go with the researchers who personally said every 20 years is a new generation. It was in the Almanac I read years ago. If you want to label the generations differently than me, go ahead.

    Never said I would label generations differently from you. I'm say exactly what I've seen from research.

    You're right. Officially when it come to statistics, anyone born in 1980 to 2000 is a Generation Y Millennial.  Even Doug Walker is one since he was born in November 1981.

    Also, it's ridiculous to blame us millennials for every thing wrong, when the year we were born doesn't necessarily determine our actions or behavior in life, like our destiny and future are set in stone. The future is full of possibilities and its outcome can be controlled.

    Technically no, it's actually fairly abstract on where generations lie since everyone has a different idea on where it is. Some say Gen Z starts at around 1995 while others say it's as far as 2000.

    Pacing. Stories are too rushed. They constrain themselves too much with format. The results are mixed on how well they can pace a story during an episode. There are many an episode that could've used a two part format. 

    And a story that should be told all season long gets blown by in a pair of two parters, if that. And the few times there is development across a season, the payoff is lack luster. They can't decide if they want an over arching story or stand alone episodes. 

    Also there's no continuity with the comics, which could provide a great wealth of creativity and arching stories across different media platforms. 

    Guess that is what happens when an episode is compressed so tightly into 22 minutes.

    I still have to work out the conflict between a realistic and applicable moral with the fact that Scootaloo doesn't live in a world like ours. For me, I can't get past the judgement of the parents. The resolution wasn't very realistic or relatable so ... the moral is not really a teaching moment for younger kids. I'm biased as I've happily sacrificed opportunities and dreams to raise my kids, and when we did need to move, I would be dipped in shit if I would leave my kids behind. Snips surprise at the fact that her parents don't live in Ponyville already is also kinda telling. Looks like situations presented in the episode are not the norm. 

    I still don't know how to rate this, but I liked it and still have major issues with the resolution. 

    And yes I am happy the show introduced a canon same sex couple. I am doubly happy it was done age appropriately. 

    Of course I have no problem with same sex couples. I think the aunts characters were pretty well done actually. It's just my thing about this episode is that I kind of saw it coming from a mile away. I really don't think the writers would break up the CMC just because her parents want her to move away. That would be a stupid thing to do in the last season of the show because it would just leave a cliffhanger.
