Criticism is fine as long as the criticism is more thought out than “b-but it’s not G4” which I’ve seen a little of already in various places. I just don’t want to judge something I know almost nothing about yet.

I’m still extremely salty that the DuckTales reboot only got three seasons; clearly objective quality and number of seasons don’t correlate so who knows how long it lasts.

So, the G5 series being on Netflix is a great idea (much better than Discovery Family), but because of Netflix’s binging format, online discussion will probably be lacking.

True.

Fair point. Hard to tell this early on I guess.
 
It probably might last 4-6 seasons, depending on the reception the toys, movie and series get.

Have to say honestly I enjoyed it even more than FiM, it’s wrapping up nicely but I had hoped they had enough ideas to keep it going for longer since the few other shows I was following had wrapped up recently too. Series finale should be airing pretty soon.

The thing that annoys me about how G4 wrapped up isn’t necessarily how long it lasted, as I found at least some episodes to like in all seasons, but more about how they introduced a ton of worldbuilding and potentials only to change course and not explore them, leaving a lot of neat concepts and locations as one-offs. If G5 can explore the worldbuilding they introduce more thoroughly in more focused, fewer seasons, that’s great.

There are other shows that I honestly prefer over FIM in terms of writing, I’m not a fan of how the show ended with questions left unanswered. I hope this new show does a better job of explaining things then just ignore it.
