FiM is obviously a slice of life style show. It doesn't have much going for it in terms of continuity, and for the most part can be watched in any order. This is usually the nature of childrens television.
A good amount of us are in our 20's and used to long series arcs, be it a DVD box set of Sopranos or a 100 episode Anime.
So what do you guys think? Would you watch a series about your favorite pony traveling across Equestria and growing as a character?
