Watched the recent episodes of MLP - that Pinkie pie was was quite funny, it reminded me of Multiplicity.
I loved the scene where she was able to silently jump in the water by just slowing down as she came to her impact point, and Rainbow asks how she did it.
Then the nod to the old pony series with her face, the fingers and hybrid animal oranges.
That new one is pretty realistic, usually when people bully others to that extent, there is a deeper reason, most of the time, there are many others who do it because they can, they're spoiled, but that's a discussion for another time.
And as for the CMC, maybe there will be a Manehatten episode, that may be good, the hometown, rural ponies go to the big city, wonder what the statue of liberty looks like.
