Season 6 - Ranked

Recommended Posts

So, with all 26 episodes of S6 having aired (in the UK at least), we can at least start ranking them. I use a little tool called Preference Revealer to help rank them. My top and bottom are easy enough to figure out, but the specifics and the middles are hard, so I get it to help. Maybe I can do something fancy with the rankings later, but, for now, lists!

The URL preloaded with all the episodes (I did condense the 2 parters into 1 entry since past threads have always turned up with the individual parts next to each other anyway): Preference Revealer Ponies

What moral? There was no moral. Dash learned that she's amongst peers and isn't going to stand out like back when she was the big fish in a little pond.

Pretty legit generation. The interesting thing is that outside of the last two episodes, the bottom half were alright, but what I typically call 'middling' episodes. Not offensive but not spectacular. Enjoyable at one level or another.

(I caved.)

Top 5(Excellent/ Amazing)

Stranger Than Fanfiction(This is as good as Slice of Life.)

Gauntlet of Fire(Amazing Spike....yup hell froze over just like how my Cubs made the World series).

Newbie Dash( A overly hated episode people miss the moral and what it was trying to say. While yes you need to be from a certain background to get it, I still people were too hard on this episode).

Flutter Brutter( FS' bro is a douche and he is awesome.)

No Second Prances(The moment I realize the starlight Glimmer character was saved.).

Buckball Season(Dash is good here.)

6 through 14( Good episodes)

To Where And Back Again Parts 1 & 2(We needed this after the very poor season 5 finale. Also Starlight should be given a break now by the fandom).

A Hearth's Warming Tail(Music is excellent and does an excellent job.)

Top Bolt(New characters were cool and Dash is once again on her game).

The Times They Are A Changeling(Another good Spike episode....okay stop it.)

Where The Apple Lies(We need more episodes like this since we can learn more about the mane 6.)

28 Pranks Later(It rehashes a moral but this episode was funny and a great zombie parody. Dash was on point this season.)

Every Little Thing She Does(I honesty found this episode to be funny and found it to be character progression for Starlight.)

The Fault In Our Cutie Marks(Another good episode that just got outclassed. I want to say CMC, Dash, and Starlight carried the season for me.).

On Your Marks(CMC do it again with another awesome episode.)

The rest I found to be okay.

PPOV( Solid episode.)

The Gift of Maud Pie(Solid episode and Maud is awesome here. Just got outclass by better episodes.)

Viva Las Pegasus(Another really solid episode with a good villain and no random face turn.)

The Saddle Row Review(Fun episode but rewatching it...it is pretty boring.)

Bottom 5

Spice Up Your Life(I loved this episode at first but then I found it blah when I rewatched it.)

The Crystalling Parts 1 & 2(This is fighting to be second worst premiere behind Crystal Ponies).

The Cart Before The Ponies(One Bad apple part 2)

Applejack's Day Off(This episode was super boring. Decent moral yes, but my god it put me to sleep.)

Dungeons & Discords(It took them half the episode to get into the plot and instead of being D&D funtime it is watch Discord be a jerk for 15 minutes. This is easiest the worst Discord episode and one of the most boring episodes of MLP. I do like the ending of the episode.)

Overall thoughts: MLP doesn't know how to have a bad season. This was another pretty good season. The bad episodes are pretty harmless. And it does a good job maintain the ratio of good to bad episodes. I think you got a good serious when you only have single digits bad episodes.

I need to do my full review later but this help me get started. I give the season a solid 8 out of 10.

I'm not going to rank all 26. I'll just say what my favorite and what was the worst.

The worst is easy. Every Little Thing She Does. The only thing this episode did was prove that Starlight Glimmer is an idiot with absolutely no common sense whatsoever.

As for the best...

I'd say Buckball Season and The Times They Are A Changeling were the ones I liked the most.
