So, Voice of Reason made an end-of-season review for S8 in the style of Jelloapocalypse (which I'm starting to become a big fun of) and... it gets pretty scathing when he gets to the Top 5 worst episodes:

This is actually what he said in the despcritpion: Yep, I'm jumping on this bandwagon. Also, this season sucked. (Yikes).

Yeah, he says some very sad truths about this season that needed to be said, especially about Matter of Principals. Though, it's nice that he found some good in the season. 

I see I'm not only one who saw some of the retakes on things to do with Starlight. Though I'm kinda shocked at how much he didn't like his worst. And All Bottled Up, for that matter.

Also, I can't beleive it took this long to realize we had an episode called the Mean Six on Sonic Stadium.

I have heard some problems with the episode. 

I never saw that.

One was that the subplot with the Mane Six was pointless.

Oh.

...Eh, it kinda was.

 

Guess they just felt the need to "explain" what the Mane Six was doing so Starlight and Trixie could have their [bulk of the] episode without issue.

Yeah, I checked the YMMV page for it on TV Tropes and it seemed like the Mane 6 had inflated egos in that episode.

Eh, just sounds like more of people putting them on much of a pedestal and thus expecting them to behave and fare a certain way.

I mean, that kinda was the joke.

So looking back at some of my older comments for something here, I got to thinkin about Forgotten Friendship again.

In my "review" of it at the time, I noted that Wallflower was a brilliant deconstruction that didn't quite reach the climax she needed that the story seemed to be gradually building up from the beginning. I also mentioned that the biggest missed opportunity about the special was that closure on EQ!Snips&Snails was also sorta set up, but was seriously sidestepped for [just] Trixie.

With these opinions revisited, I think I managed to combine them into what the real big wasted plot point that both elements share was: a deeper, more meaningful look back into Sunset's Past.

I would probably try to give more focus to some of the more popular characters (Luna for example), have the Princesses be more useful when there's a crisis, have magic be ledd prominent, and fix the unintentional xenophobia with non-pony species. I think the first could help please fans more by giving these characters depth. The third one is because I don't like magic and the 4th can help reduce a lot of unpleasant implications the show has of showing the ponies overall being better than non-ponies in most things.

Also, this is something that I was thinking of a way to rectify Twilight's behavior in Marks for Effort could have been to reveal that Cozy cast a spell to manipulate Twilight as maybe practice for doing it on the students.

Oh ho?

 

More depth is good, yes.

Understandable. They really only show up in BIG episodes, half the time.

"Ledd?"

 

Oh, less! Um, one little problem, one little problem with that...

Oops. Like, is it? 

 

Eh...I guess? Like, unfortunately, the bulk of our major cast are ponies, so that's just kind of an inevitable hurdle they'd run into.
