I think I might start using this journal to post episode reviews. Would anyone like that? Would anyone actually read that? (I know I post so infrequently here, probably no one will even read this...)
Anyways, I've been posting reviews the past few weeks in the comments of Derpy News, but people rarely reply, and I'd occasionally like to discuss the episode and the parts I thought worked vs. didn't work, and see other peoples' opinions on those areas. EQD is nearly impossible to have a rational discussion in the comments, and other sites (like say... HN) aren't exactly the best place for unbiased, serious-but-not-too-serious discussion.
I can occasionally be nit-picky, but I try to stay generally positive. The little details almost never have a large effect on my opinion of an episode; I instead try to focus on the overall feel, themes, pacing, characterization, etc. There have only been maybe 3 or 4 episodes that I actually "disliked," but I've never "hated" an episode, and similarly there has never been an episode I couldn't find at least some enjoyment in watching.
Anyways, I don't know why I'm posting this before just posting my episode review... I know the "MLP analysis community" is huge and somewhat infamous, so I don't want to emulate that. I don't want to tear episodes apart, I just want a place where I can post my opinion and discuss with others about their opinions.
So, all that said, and if anyone actually reads this, would you be interested in weekly episode reviews? Is there a better place for this type of thing? (I've never really been a forum user (I lurk but never post); I've only ever really heavily used imageboards, and more recently Reddit, for online discussion... but again those aren't great for discussion of MLP, from what I've experienced.)
Ok, that's it! Thanks for any replies.
