I haven't finished season 8 yet, but this could be my Top 3 and Bottom 3 episodes.

Top 3:
-Surf and/or Turf
-The Washouts
-Molt Down

Bottom 3:
-The Mean 6
-Fake it 'till you make it
-Road to friendship

I could put in here Non-Compete Cause, but it wasn't as shocking as I expected it to be after reading so many negative impressions about it.

Can’t stop the signal
After rewatching the show last year, I've realised that season 3 holds up super-well, even MMC. At the time I liked S3 much better than S2, but even during S4 considered it one of the lesser seasons. These days I'd consider it one of my favourite seasons. Yes I still believe that MMC should've been a two-parter, but for what it is I really enjoy it.

I know that due to the show ending, gen 4.5, and the pandemic, has ramped up the re-evaluation of the show and especially earlier seasons and controversial episodes, but I do wonder how many of the people who are now celebrating everything up to season 7/8/9 (more or less) have actually gone back and rewatched the earlier seasons. I'm not diminishing their nostalgia for "the good times," but that it's one thing to go "Yeah I didn't particularly care for 'x' at the time, but now that I think about it, it's pretty good" and actually rewatching it to see how you feel about 'x' now. I did that, and is why I like MMC and especially MMMystery on the Friendship Express a lot better now than I did at the time.

It'll be interesting to see how my views on the likes of the rest of season 4 and especially Rainbow Rocks hold up upon rewatching them…

I think S3 is only one of two seasons where I feel I can rewatch every episode in it(the other being S1). It probably helps that it's only half of the usual season, but none of the episodes drive me up a wall like all the other seasons do

Yeah, I used to have season 3 pegged as the worst season. And then season 6 came along. I do feel like our expectations may have been a bit high for the earlier seasons, or maybe they just tended to drop after the show kept racking up terrible episodes. Hell, The Mysterious Mare-do-well was always slammed as a horrible episode, but it’s far better than, say, 28 Pranks Later or The Cart Before the Ponies.

@Kiryu-Chan

Eh, season 5 is still entirely watchable for me. The only real exception is Princess Spike, but I just don’t like it in concept more than anything else.

28 Pranks Later was basically the writers looking at MMDW and going "Hold My Beer". They basically took all the latters flaws and doubled down on them imo

S5 was close but it still has Cutie Remark, which I still hate, so uh, yeah

I think Princess Spike would have been fine if the main character was Twilight instead of Spike. Now that Twilight is a princess, I wanted to watch some episodes where she's a princess.

The season 5, despite its flaws, is one of my favourite seasons. It's the season that has Crusaders of the Lost Mark. If people ask me why I like season 5 more than 4 or 6, I'll always say "Crusaders of the Lost Mark". It's THE episode of the Cutie Mark Crusaders.

What was wrong with MMMystery On The Friendship Express? I always liked it and it was a great homage to the original source material. Though I wish that they incorporated the original idea of having Applejack be one of the guilty ones who also ate part of the cake.

@Spinny
Man, The Mysterious Mare Do Well is still one of the worst episodes ever even with the competition that came up ahead.

I think a lot of people have their favorite episode in S5. Like me: “Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep” hit me hard when I watched it.

That said, S5’s ending remains one of the biggest disappointments of FiM. It’s such a great idea with the time travel plot, but it’s brought down by compromising Starlight’s characterization as an egoistic ideologue via the rushed, half-assed redemption at the end.

I recently watched 3 more episodes of season 8.

-Rockhoof and a hard place was a funny episode, although some parts of the first half were a bit boring. Some people would find it unnecessary, and it kinda is. But if you're going to write an unnecessary story, at least make it funny. Kinda like the Flim Flam Brothers episode from season 2. Unnecessary, but funny.

-What lies beneath was… meh? I like the idea behind the episode, but I don't know. It looks like an ancient simulator instead of a challenge of the six students. It's not very funny, sometimes it's creative, and nothing more. And that ending would have been intriguing if it wasn't for some spoilers I've read.

-Sounds of silence was a good episode. I love the concept, the character design is kinda cool and the story is interesting. Some parts were a bit boring like the song, but it's cool. It might be my 4th favourite episode in season 8.

So, 3 episodes left.

Actually, two. Father knows beast and School raze.
Latecomer

Interesting that we all have such diverse tastes. For instance, I recall thinking of 28 Pranks Later as a too-late improved version of Mare-Do-Well, though I have to admit I can't quite recall why at this point. I'm still pretty turned off by Crusaders of the Lost Mark, especially given it's lack of decent follow-up. But my strong distaste for the Season 5 finale at least seems to be popular…
