TV Binge: GoT, MLP

Finished watching GoT through the end of season 4. I'll buy the remaining two seasons soon enough, no doubt, but there is only so much of that stuff I can watch in one sitting. The intrigue is fun to follow, and I'll never complain about all the women, but the relentless violence and cruelty gets really draining. Tyrion, though, makes it all ultimately worthwhile.

So I switched over to My Little Pony for a welcome change of pace. Now THAT is true character drama. I'm in Season 6 now, and I saw 'On Your Marks', 'Gauntlet of Fire', and 'No Second Prances' (E 4, 5, and 6). In E4, the Cutie Mark Crusaders find themselves in the position of a solution in search of a problem, and learn that they can bond with others in the course of pursuing their own individual interests. E5 takes place in the Dragon Lands and is action-heavy. In E6 there's a very tense, and ultimately very satisfying, three-way dynamic between Twilight and her two former adversaries, Starlight and Trixie. The resolution gets at a very deep truth about relationships, that it's essential to allow your friends the freedom to form their own friendships.
