• Discussion: Has the Lore of the Show Gotten Better or Worse Over the Last 7 Seasons?

    Early pony was absolutely jam packed with lore. We have seasons controlled by the citizens of Ponyville, the super-spooky Everfree Forest, and a world that seemed to fall somewhere in the renaissance period when it came to technology. Over time, things that used to be horse-powered have been shifted over to more normal earth style ideas, and even the denizens themselves have gone from largely manipulating everything orally to simply carrying things with hooves.

    Is this a bad thing for the show? Do you think there was more character back when stuff was mysterious, harder, and dangerous? Or does throwing a bit of modern technology in there make pony feel more relatable?
