1. Newbie Dash: The series' longest character arc, which began in the very first episode, concluded with an episode that didn't make me the slightest bit happy for Rainbow Dash. Poor writing and characterization made this one of the biggest disappointments of the whole series for me. Rainbow regresses to her typical arrogant Season 1 self and the Wonderbolts hit an all-time low from a moral standpoint. I was willing to let Wonderbolts Academy slide just because the team gets its comeuppance when Rainbow quits. I even put up with Rainbow Falls because at least Soarin' wasn't a jerk. But this was too much.
2. Applejack's "Day" Off: A far cry from the amazing Applejack of episodes like The Mane Attraction and The Last Roundup. Never before has her character been portrayed as being this stupid. How the farm was able to survive before this episode, I have no idea. Applejack's methods of working on the farm range from a little odd to simply absurd. The spa repair scene is painfully slow. The moral is poorly executed and the episode just drags on for much of the 22 minutes.
3. The Mysterious Mare Do Well: Another bad Rainbow Dash episode, and the only Season 2 episode that I really loathe. Rainbow Dash's ego gets the best of her, but rather than trying to have a nice mature conversation with her, her friends decide to shame her by creating their own superhero character. OK, the opening fan club scene is cute, but the rest of the episode is painful to watch. The moral seems forced at the end; it's basically "Maybe I got a little carried away" and that's it. I'm not led to believe that Rainbow genuinely learned something.

What About Discord
Applejack's Day Off
I like Neal Dusedau as a person, at least what I can tell from twitter, but those 3 episodes are the absolute bottom of the barrel, and somehow they're all his.

The three episodes that I would get rid of would be:
- Princess Spike
- Just for Sidekicks
- What About Discord
These episodes were just not really entertaining and were kind of boring, in my opinion.

1. No Second Prances
2. Hearth's Warming Eve
3. Magical Mystery Cure

Rainbow Falls- Good Lesson, but everytihng else is terrible. Fluttershy and Bulk being part part of Team Ponyville. Applejack has no point of being there along with Rarity who has worse outfits I have seen from her. Oh lets forget this epsiode is, I think, the main reason why "Newbie Dash" sucjed because this episode and that one protray the Wounderbolts as total snobs
A Canterlot Wedding- This episode destroyed any chance of MLP:FiM having a good lore because Celestia got beat down by a bug; thus destorying the image that she's a god. On top of that, Shining Armor and Cadence appear out of the blue and are a sterotypical 1 dimensional Disney couple. Plus Queen Chrysalis is an idiot because of her plan makes no sense at all oh and this qoute
Princess Cadance: My love will give you strength.
Queen Chrysalis: [chuckling] What a lovely but absolutely ridiculous sentiment.
Flutter Butter- How much I loathe this epsiode, its logical is borderline stupid. First of all, Fluttershy's shyness is genetic, let me say that again a personality trait is genetic. A secondly when Fluttershy says to her brother, Zepher, that he is smart and skilled thats when the whole epsiode feel apart for me because we never see him be "skilled and smart". All we some being is a condescending idoitc asshole. How see him be that, what that 10 seconds of Fluttershy mane style being redone? That's skilled and smart? Bull. Which leads me to this question: What is Zepher cute mark stand for than? That cutie mark isnt mane styling its for something else and well no one brings it up. I'm sorry this episode legitimately pisses me off.

"The Mysterious Mare-Do-Well" -- Rainbow Dash's portrayal...ugh. Normally I like to see her being taught a lesson if she's becoming cocky again, but the entire episode felt just weird.
"Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?" Lots of action, lots of drama, yet feels hollow and empty. Way over the top action and pandering to really enjoy. This one just didn't sit well with me.
"Applejack's Day Off." Don't hate the episode, but it felt just utterly pointless. Waiting for some twist or change in story but it just never came.
Honorable mention: "What about Discord." I appreciate the moral, I appreciate the story, but the execution of the episode felt wrong, and too much on the mean side. Humor felt flat and cringe-worthy at times. I still re-watch this episode from time to time for certain parts that were well done.
I wanted to add "Newbie Dash" as well at first, I've been a bit up and down about this episode since it aired. In the end though, I can appreciate the episode for what it tried to do. Rainbow Dash became too cocky and completely obsessed with her nickname so I could understand the lesson she had to learn in the end, even if it was painful. I can't see it as humiliating, but more like Rainbow Dash maturing and growing as a character. Seeing her at peace at the end of the episode really sold it for me.

In no particular order,
-Games Ponies Play
-Spike at Your Service
-What about Discord?
I'd eliminate all three of these for much the same reasons. All three were chores to sit through without much payoff. They all contained failed attempts at mean-spirited humor as well, and the conflicts in at least the first two could have been resolved easily if the characters didn't act like idiots.

Hmm, which episodes would I erase?
Boast Busters. My absolute least favorite episode in the series. The mane 6, Twilight aside, act like jerks and then Trixie's introduction wasn't exactly the best, either.
The Show Stoppers. The CMC are blatantly oblivious and their talents are shown in front of our faces, but not theirs, also the song near the end is terrible. Yes, some of you may say that was the point, but it doesn't make it any less terrible.
Baby Cakes. Another episode that is hard to sit through. Pinkie Pie is shown to be pretty incapable of watching kids, and also the foals in the episode... I can't stand them.
There are a bunch of episodes from season 1 I would also erase, because to me season 1 is the worst, and a few from season 2, but the thread asked 3, so I'll stick with 3.

Any of the Spike episodes, really, excluding Gauntlet of Fire and Dragon Quest. I love Spike, he's pretty chill. But, every single time they put the spotlight on him, except for the two exclusions, they keep telling us that Spike is completely useless or a complete asshat. It's kind of unfair to the little reptile. The show is about friendship, but there's rarely any real friendship shown to Spike. Really, they keep making him seem pathetic. I'd rather save Spike and write him out of the show, instead of keeping the theme going. Or perhaps, take notes from the comic side, which really shows us how cool Spike is. But, yeah, they don't write Spike properly and it's pretty annoying, really.
Gauntlet of Fire and Dragon Quest were amazing Spike episodes. They actually gave us something to see in Spike. Gave him some character, if you will.

-Putting Your Hoof Down - As much as I kinda like the moral, this episode almost butchered Fluttershy's character for me. I only watched this episode once and never again.
-Mysterious Mare-Do Well - Because, the obvious.
-Princess Spike - A semi enjoyed this episode but I found Spike to be very out of character. I like all of Spike's episodes except this one. There is no way Spike would use Twilight's princesshood to his own advantage. And seeing it kinda broke my heart.
-Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000 - The only thing I liked was Dashie's cider obsession and the 'moral' at the end. I never understood the appeal of the Flim Flam brothers. They're just so bland and annoying.
I understand why people may not like Newbie Dash but I like how it was written, the same with Applejack's 'Day' Off.
Or maybe that's just my opinion.

The only thing I'd erase is "Applejack's Day Off". The thought of this episode existing makes me lose brain cells, seriously. Applejack looked like the biggest idiot in the whole galaxy thanks to tragic writing. Seriously, somebody delete this mess
