    When will the show have deep, complex characters, great worldbuilding and lore, and well-done drama?

    Or am I just gonna have to find another show if I want that?

    Then look elsewhere.
    It's a half-hour kid's show about brightly-colored talking ponies.
    That's ALL it is.
    It happens to be very well written for what it is, and trying to turn it into something it's not would suck all the charm and fun right out of it.

    I mean, this show isn't really about building worlds filled with violence and confusing kingdoms and people. But I suppose I see where you're coming from.

    I'm with Ridley on this. As far as canon is concerned, it won't ever get that far in depth. You'll have to stick to fan created works and find the ones you like the best, or create one yourself. :smile:

    Are you implying that the show doesn't already have more depth than you would expect from one aimed at young children? I think a lot of the negative reviews the show gets stem from this mentality. Not to say you are one of those people because you asked your question in what I feel was a respectful way. Still, this show is already miles ahead of any show I watched in my childhood as far as not treating kids like mindless idiots but there IS a limit on how "real" you can make it. Especially when, at its core, MLP is a 22 minute toy commercial.

    And I want the show to stop expecting me to like HORRID NOT REDEEMED characters and that's clearly not going to happen either.

    So your wants won't be happening sorry.

    So, are you ever going to give a reasonable explanation for why she's NOT REDEEMED, or are you just gonna keep posting the same crap over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again?

    Could you name three characters the show actively failed to redeem and explain how?

    This right here, is what people do not like. And before you get your panties in a bunch, I do not mean your opinion. I mean this overt want to make everyone stop believing in a character being redeemed. Forcing this view does nothing but make malice and drama. Most of it aimed directly at you, because of this. No one does this because they hate you, but in reality they are trying to correct the mistake you keep making. That being to force people to believe something other than what they want to believe. If you despise the redemption process, that's fine. No one will stop you from believing that. But when you spew *squee!* like this with no explanation, people will be questioning you for your logic.

    I think we all know what the answer to that question is.

    I'm actually a huge sucker for redeemed characters because usually the trope starts where they aren't fully redeemed and it opens up for a whole arc on them becoming fully redeemed, sometimes the story plays on it and other times it doesn't. It is a good trope if done well.

    And it's clear that our want of you not constantly pitching a fit over it isn't going to happen either.

    I'd sing "Why Can't We Be Friends", but I doubt it would do much good in this situation.
