So, something I noticed with this previous episode. Is it just me, it did it seem just a bit more "action-y" then prior episodes? In fact, the whole show is moving in a more dramatic, almost action oriented way. There was a bonafide train robbery, a stampede and a full on attack, a fucking clock tower was destroyed, etc etc. All in an almost retro, throwback old west setting. I know it all came down to throwing pies instead of shooting guns, but that was all still a bit more serious than you'd expect from something about candy colored ponies.
I know Lauren said on her DA that she really wanted to be able to do more adventurous stories with these ponies, and it seems to me like shes getting to do that, even if only just a bit. Can you imagine if this show does well, and Lauren and her team actually earn a little more creative freedom?
