The school of friendship was a bad idea from the get go.
First off the idea behind it is teaching subjects about “friendship”. I dunno but I was feeling they started to overstretch the main theme of the show a little bit too far. Sure, you could make an argument that it’s more like “human interaction classes” but still, I’m not really sure it works well in a show that showcases fantasy adventures and comedic slices of lifes, specially because that would also means they would get too upfront with the lessons.
Once the actual execution comes in it really didn’t change my perception, the stundent six were utterly boring (I do have some small guilty pleassure on Smolder but as a whole the rest of the student six as both individuals and group were rather forgettable and bland), and the plot with Neighsay was honestly rather unnecesary. Is just an asshole who says “only ponies so no creditation”, it doesn’t bring anything interesting, not even the fact that the Yak’s belligerence or the changelings invasions could have explain his logic agains other creatures while still portraying him in the wrong, but no just make him a jerk for the sake of being a jerk and not even an entertaining one.
It doesn’t help the classes themselves are also not really something really extraordinary, is just some small history classes and something something else, is not like Celestia’s school for magical unicorns or Cloudsdale’s camp for flyers, heck AJ’s barn makes better use for Earth pony related things.

Yeah, there’s one thing I noticed: The conflict of “School Daze” started when it was claimed that friendship can’t be taught in books, but EEA rules strictly forbade outside-the-box methods of teaching. But whenever later episodes would show what goes on inside the School of Friendship, we see books and chalkboards and homework and tests and crap. Oh-kaayyy…

No, but honestly I just wanted to let out how much I disliked the school.
@DoctorWTF
Is not like homeworks are inherently wrong as much as it’s just downright mundane feeling it’s not really exciting at all.

Unpopular Opinions should be changed to Divisive Opinions. Not necessarily unpopular but enough to cause a debate.
Also I know this should be obvious, but I want to ask. Is it okay if in my fanfics I only have straight ships? I’m just not interested in LGBT ships.

I think Owlicious is underused. Seriously I wouldn’t know he existed of it weren’t for that Spike taking care of pets episode or the episode Owlicious was introduced.
Of course I wish they would have given that owl more jokes that that who joke.

Frankly, I’d say the School of Friendship almost makes more sense than there being actual school. Once you get your cutie mark, what you learn in normal school barely even matters by that point. You have your lifelong destiny, and it’s up to you to make something of it. The School of Friendship at least teaches social interaction, something that may be more important for anyone with a cutie mark that’s directly tied to helping others, such as the CMC.

@Spinny
Disagree. Just because you have a special talent doesn’t mean overspecialization is healthy. You could say for example Pinkie Pie, she’s great at comedy but controversial when outside of it. I don’t trust in traditional schools per see but the idea that once you get a cutie mark you already have everything in your life in terms of functional skills is not something I agree at all. And honestly social interaction can be learned in lots of ways that doesn’t always involve a school, much less something that quickly gets stagnant after a while.
@Cosmas-the-Explorer
I agree. The owl deserved better.

Even if I think the Yakity Sax episode was mediocre, I actually dont think Pinkie was being as a hole. She was sad but she wasn’t trying to guilt others into making her play the sax.
If anything it’s friends that were really to blame. They seemed to have no sense of nuance. It’s either allow Pinkie to play the instrument like normal or completely restrict her.

@Cosmas-the-Explorer
But that was way too ignorant of her, and it absolutely misused Pinkamena. The first time Pinkamena appears Pinkie thought her friends stop caring about her and she would be left alone. It gives you the impression Pinkie truly cares about friendship and ponies she holds dear, but Yakity Sax tells the opposite, that Pinkie literally cares more about a random instrument than the friends that love and care for her so much. If it was just Pinkie feeling sad, it probably wouldn’t have been as bad. She wasn’t even that sad when she realized Maud Pie and her friends don’t get along. It makes Pinkie Pie really shallow when in reality she is actually a deeper character than that.

I still can’t believe how much of a non-factor Pony Life ended up being. Despite it effectively being the last time we’d see the mane six, it totally just came and went without the fandom caring that much about it at all.

At first I thought there would be plenty of fanart based on any unique content it introduced, but then literally nothing ever changed aside from the 1/10000 chance of seeing a random Pony Life related image (including fanart).
