Whoa, these writers STILL operate at S-tier capacity!
1. Too Many Pinkie Pies
2. Sleepless in Ponyville

Okay, a couple flaws, but they're still A-tier!
3. Keep Calm and Flutter On (sometimes flaws ruin an episode; this time, they felt like side notes to an all-time character dynamic)

Fine MAYBE the more impersonal feel or weak, cop-out endings are starting to bother me:
4. Wonderbolts Academy
5. The Crystal Empire

Okay, fan-pandering that doesn't even pay off, rote formula, cheeseball characterization... you guys are barely still above water:
6. Magic Duel
7. Just For Sidekicks
8. Apple Family Reunion

So now you don't care how sloppy or fake you go, as long as we get to throw a big, self-congratulating melodrama parade?!
9. Magical Mystery Cure

Or you *yawn* just don't care...?
10. Games Ponies Play

Or you scramble together the most rushed, morale-crushingly awful character showcases, for cheap, concerned-parents' morals :umad:
11. Spike At Your Service
12. One Bad Apple

What always struck me about this one is that they only had to come up with half as many, and even pound for pound, their 13 best still felt weaker and more spotty than what came before.
