    Aren't those the same thing?

    Or am I thinking of how each episode has its own plot and you mean the central plot to the whole series?

    In that case probably episodes like season 1. There's no motivation for a centralized plot, no villain or really any reason too have one.

    Even though I can appreciate an on-going storyline, it seems to devalue cartoons more often than not.

    For now I would prefer the current Sit-Com approach. And they seem to do well with still progressing with an overarching story at the same time (Gala, CMC, etc).

    I agree. I think Season 2 will take a Season 1 approach as far as plot and villains go, but then again we never know. Season 1 was all about Twilight Sparkle. Her story is done, right?

    The first season's plot was about preparations for the Grand Galloping Gala. See Ticket Master, Suited for Success and The Best Night Ever in that order Razz.

    I don't think each season will be about the individual pony. Her story still isn't done anyway, she's still got more letters to send to the princess.

    I dont think Season 1 was really about Twilight at all. She didnt feature into many of the plots, and some of them she was hardly the centre.

    my guess for the plot:

    while I hope for an overarching seasonal plot - then I suspect there wont be one.

    as for plots for each episode - then it'll follow the same formula as season one: there's a problem, frienship solves it, report to the queen

    I watch it for the umm... Plot. /kidding

    I love the show for the funny episodes Smile. I think the episodic format is good because you do not have to see all episodes to get what it is all about.

    Do you think they'll take Lauren's approach from Season 1? Actually hide a coherent plot into the series like you mentioned earlier, Applejack?

    I think they will have a hidden plot this time too. But they still should keep the episodic format Smile.

    I think that none of us will ever figure out what the plot is.

    How about plots over the whole series and plots for each episode?
