Slice of Life

I don't know if anyone on my flist right now is watching or has ever watched much ponies, but I'm slowly catching up with Season 5 and hot damn. That was the most satisfying, hilarious, unbelievable hundredth episode extravaganza that I've ever seen a TV show pull off. The Derpy and Doctor Whooves stuff was more or less mandatory for the theme they chose, but - Stephen Magnet? Philosopher Gummy? Lyra and Bon-Bon's lesbian undertones? The fourth wall came down so hard that the other three are probably still trembling.

And that's just adding to, let's see...the anti-communism premier, Luna completing the CMC dreamwalking triad, a GoT reference, Nothing Can Stop the Smooze, stoner pony named Tree Hugger, drunk Celestia, those last three all being in the same episode and I haven't even mentioned my favorite redeemed villain being in it too, griffons, and a baking soda promotion. Oh, and "If you befriend a librarian, you can find out almost anything." Twilight is such a guru these days. Character development isn't just for live action anymore.

I'm not clinging to any great hope that I can convince anyone else to watch it with me, but just to let you know, I haven't had any trouble finding this season's episodes on YouTube. I only wish there were enough hours in the day to watch shows like this multiple times. Yep, I mean it. Still.
