Oh, yeah, totally. Episodes back then definitely weren't written tighter, with clearer conflicts, more concretely defined and consistent characters, a more stable tone, and without shitty fanservice, memes, pointlessly blatant adult references, and powerlevel crap. Definitely what we have is better.
That is, if you're fucking retarded.

This.

I still love this birb, though, in spite of all the mediocrity of the later seasons.

You dont seem to understand what constitutes “quality”. In this case, quality is objective. Just because you miss your daydreaming preschool entertainment does NOT mean recent seasons are any less. Yeah the show changed, but for the better. Now it handles themes it would never have had a hope of carrying in Faust’s age, she was stunting FiM. She had good intentions but her vision was far, far too narrow. I feel like she was scared of being anything impressive, and given her career history I didn’t have faith in her myself. I was relieved when she left, FiM has long since risen above her half assed impersonation of what she thought a tv series should be

Nice trolling, Satan. Almost had me fooled there.
>>
>>33850599
Seriously, this.
I can appreciate the show now, even with all of it's faults, but it's not the same feeling I got from the first two seasons.
I don't know it it would've been better or worse if Faust had stayed on, but it's felt rudderless to me for a long time, and that has nothing to do with the actual plot lines the show has gone down.

What themes are these? I'm mighty interested what outstanding themes are carried in the later seasons that blow collective minds. Granted, earlier seasons weren't ambitious, but they never aspired to be, anyway. It's not a question of what is better, but of what is the point. And the show was created with a certain point, which is now a different one, nine years later.

I don't think most people say the show is 100% awful now. Look at the weekly episode polls, at the amount of fan-content that still follows the episodic releases, and the discussions. They are mostly positive. One thing is to be objective and to admit the show has changed. This is undeniable. To conclude that it is better or worse requires nuance, comparison with itself, understanding of TV writing, and more effort put into its dissection than just "3-9=crap" or "faustfags are retarded". But it might be too much to expect from the average brony or horsefucker.

I miss the simple, comfy, non-intrusive music of the first season, too.

There are definite extremes, but I'd say most fans are able to look at each episode objectively.
At the same time, it's a matter of taste as well as objective quality.
That middle ground is a lot less vocal than the extremes, though, and there's always the element that is here purely to kick the hornet's nest as well.
Personally, for me, there are good episodes and bad episodes but I still enjoy the show overall. I've never been the type to chew rocks over a show no matter how much I like it, though.

>>33850806
I loved how the original direction staff could use silence instead of music to make some scenes cozier or more tense depending of the situation.

Better writer, not a better director

Season 1 was pretty slow, no one on earth can defend this.

Is slow being used as a negative here? Because that isn't inherently a bad aspect of a story. Patience, pace, caution, calmness, are all parts of a story, especially one about developing relationships first and foremost.
>>
>>33850599
The thing I notice the most is that the character animation and limits were a lot more consistent back then. They had to work with the constraints of what horses could do more tightly than nowadays.

This. Redditors and Goons can't speak proper English.
This is why they don't have a social life. They compensate by having a virtual life.

You posted your own.

This is how you outsmart redditors.
In fact, it's incredibly easy to outsmart redditors. The sillyponies could do that. In fact, they would do that all the time and the redditors' autistic screeching would not stop them.
