Season 8 is bad for a majority of reasons first of all the whole school of friendship makes the show sound like it’s for little kids. And second of all none of the mane 6 really got a chance to shine this season other than Rainbow dash. Twilght pinkie and Fluttershy characterization this season has been terrible they are not anything like how they used to be Twilght is now a strict headmare of a school of friendship. Pinkie pie is not as entertaining as she use to be any more. And Fluttershy has become an assertive pony. That being said there are still some moments where they still act like themselves. Like pinkie in the finale was great and so was fluttershy. She was also great in the sound of silence. Twilight was great in Friendship university automically realizeing Flim and Flam were up to something. Her interactions with Rarity were also great. My other problem with season 8 is how that we hardly got to see the cmcs this season and a lot of supporting characters never appeared this season like Shining armor who didn’t even get a single appearance this season as well as Diamond Tiara and silver spoon. And you could say we also didn’t get any Luna really either I mean she may have had a couple of lines this season but other than that she didn’t really play any big role this season. Another problem I have with season 8 is the student 6 at first I didn’t want anything to do with them and then when he finale happen they stated to Grow on me a bit. However my main issue with them is we didn’t get to see each of them have their own episode bythemselves as I feel that would help them feel more developed. The only student 6 characters I think have been really developed is Smolder and Gallus. As smolder went for being Nasty to being a bit more considerate and Gallus went from Being so jerky to being a good leader I think he would be an excellent leader for the team. However another problem I have is how Gallus could possibly be the element of magic when he has no magic.I mean I would think that element would go to Ocellus since she can change into anything and that’s magic. But maybe the Elements don’t require the pony with the element of magic to have magic idk. But anyway enough about that. Lets talk about Cozy glow my issue with her is that she just doesn’t seem Norma and she was kinda just born evil. She also seems to have a Talent into Manipulating ponies to do what she wants. She reminds me of old Starlight only more clever. Anyway when I first saw her in marks for effort I knew that something was wrong with her. And then in what lies beneath I was positive that she was up to something due to their way she acted and how she was blackmailing the student 6. But what made me even more suspicious was her face when she looked down at tree of harmony under the school. That made me know for sure that she would have something to do with the finale. And then once the finale came I started hating her. My main issue with season 8 is that we didn’t get to see spikes family. Fathers knows beast had lots potential to unlock so many answers to spikes questions and then they just ruined it by making Sludge one of the worst characters of the entire show pretend he was his dad the entire episode just felt like it was rushed and no thought was put into it. We also didn’t get to see spikes orgins which is what I wanted to see. That being said this episode could of been a classic but instead they screw up big time making it one of the worst episodes of the show. The only things I liked about this episode is the starlight in bath Cameo and the Spike and Smolder interactions. And l liked absolutely nothing about the finale.

For most of the show, the brony fandom universally referred the show's mane characters (including Spike) as the Mane Six, because they're each connected to the Elements of Harmony. Whenever you mention the nickname, other bronies immediately know who you're talking about. However, since the ending of The Cutie Re-Mark, that's changed. Starlight not only lives in Twilight's castle, but is crucial to a lot of episodes, particularly the openers and finales. Even though the crew still state that Starlight's CMC status (central to many episodes, but not a mane character), actions speak louder than words. When you're treated like a mane character in the show, you're considered one to many people. So, here's the question. Since Re-Mark only, do you refer to the main crew as the Mane Six, Mane Seven (with either Spike or Glimhorse), or Mane Eight (includes Starlight and Spike)? If you follow my history dating back to my Re-Mark review, I refer to the team post-S5 as the Mane Eight. We live in a post Element of Harmony era. Since season four, the Elements they most represent are less shoehorned. We still get to see this quality in action, but it's said lesser nowadays with exceptions. Spike is part of the Roundtable and the mane cast. Yes, he's not a pony, not a bearer, has a miniature throne next to Twilight, and not a mane feature in the opening credits. But he's treated as one. With Starlight part of the main cast, Spike shouldn't be exempt anymore. Again, Starlight's claimed by DHX to be in the same status as the CMCs. However, to repeat, actiona speak louder. Starlight's neither a bearer nor part of the Roundtable. But premieres, finales, and many episodes in between treat her as not only part of the team, but an integral one, too. When you're treated as a mane character, consider yourself one. And since I refer to Spike as part of the crew, it's unfair to leave Glimhorse out. Not to mention…
