Equestrian law, apparently.

Things like "the first murder to happen", "the sentence for murder is banishing to the moon or sun" were quite silly as well...

Not to mention magically bringing both the attorney and the judge from another dimension and from different species just for one case, but that was the very idea behind that crossover and one of the very few ways to make it happen, soo... xD

In short, I liked My Little Investigations better so far. (I haven't checked on that one too in a while...)

I don't get how any of this is sillier than the idea of a world filled with magical ponies in the first place. All of it fits quite well within the universe.

Uh, maybe you're right. But the show was designed the way so that adults can watch it, being to able to enjoy it without rolling eyes. TStorm didn't really succeed at that, to me.

But that's not true at all. I've rolled my eyes at plenty of things in FiM. Let's not be those people who insist that FiM is exclusively "a mature show for mature individuals like ourselves."

Wait, a 40 minute premiere?

Oddly intriguing. I'll have to check that out sometime. Maybe it'll fix the sloppy rushedness of the Season 3 finale.

EDIT: Yep, it sure did that. VERY impressed with Season 4 so far. I was kind of disappointed it didn't go completely insane but I got over it. And there's... an actual plot this time? What IS this madness. They're clearly trying new things with the show and I love what it's doing so far: I'd seriously go as far to say this is the best FiM's ever been.

I also see fit to mention that I completely expect this plot to wind up massively disappointing. But it's still neat that they're doing something like this, and it's turning out to be fun so far.

Oh, Hodou, don't worry about me, when it comes to that. I'm one of these few people who watched it for over 3 seasons and still think its just a cartoon, and not really much more... other than the fact it has a huge fanbase, of course.

Oh my god that episode was adorable. And awesome. And I see it's not just my imagination that S4 has better writing than the previous seasons.

Where's Hodou when you need him so I can bother him into watching this.

Season 4 CONTINUES to be impressive. One of the best CMC episodes ever, and a really great first song of the season. I didn't even get that "ugh this needs to grow on me a bit" vibe that most FiM musicals give me.

Come on Season 4. Let's keep going through this without one bad episode and prove my point that this is the BEST the show's ever been.

Because I KNOW you've got it in you.

Saw the newest episode.
Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon are long overdue for a The Reason You Suck Speech.
Or a kick in the teeth. Either works.

What I appreciate about DT and SS is that they're the last "Villians" the show has left, and they're genuinely unlikable characters, which makes it all the more satisfying when things don't go their way.

...So Superponies!

That was a fun episode. I think they totally forgot they were going to have a main plot for this season, but honestly, I'm through caring since the resolution to that will probably wind up being the only bad thing about this season.

Oh, and the costumes were amazing. I always appreciate it when they give everyone new outfits, like the Gala dresses.

Also. Dat ending. Not the LITERAL ending but...

...If you've seen the episode you KNOW what I mean.
