I am still gonna stick to the Discovery Family releases no matter what.
Count me in too. I said I was going to stick with the DF releases back when the hiatus turned into anything but that, and I don't intend to change my mind now. This show deserves a proper buildup to the end, and I'm going to give it that no matter what it takes to do so.

The episodes aren't even in English either.

This is S8 all over again.

WTF Netherlands? Why?

I stick to DF too, I don't want the show to end sooner than it absolutely has to.
Avoiding spoilers for that long will suck though, lmao.

Seems like being able to enjoy and react to a show all at the same time is a rarity these days. Now because of stuff like Netflix binging, people want their seasons all at once and don't feel like properly digesting each episode and having discussions about what will happen in the future.

It does feel like that at times. Which is why I'm glad for this thread, because proper time to think about and discuss an episode is absolutely something I want.

I stick to the US schedule for several reasons.

1. I hate getting too much stuff at once.

2. I hate binging on stuff cause i burnout easily

3. I honestly think having a 1 episode a week schedule is easy to digest and make for better discussions.

4. You never know if the episode is either in a different language, or stuff has been cut out in the international airing.

5. I love being in episode watch livestreams.

6. Talk about the episode with my best friend. :D

And since this is the final season. I really don't blame people for being overly cautious when it comes to spoilers.

I do think this season is horrible, especially in writting. Characters are ethier acting out of character or are completly wasted. If what I've heard about leaks is true, it's only downhill from here.

I feel like I did when MK11 came out. People who never should write for a story were allowed to, and ruined what once was a great thing.

Solid central episodes and overarching plot marred by decisions that were clearly based off a bucket list of things to do before the series ended, many of which weren't meant to be.

Nah. what i fear is that this season is not going to break the trend i've noticed in pony seasons — a very strong season followed by a weaker season followed by a even weaker season and then the cycle begins again.

My own theory was a cycle of Average → Amazing → Bad

1 → 2 → 3 → 4 → 5 → 6 + 7 → 8 → 9

I guess I could put 8 and 9 together and say that they were both Average?
