Ack! I haven't watched this week's
yet. Off to Hulu.
But first, one thing I wanted to quibble with:
MLP has the seriality and duration of a television series over which to demonstrate and develop so many characters, and thus can spread out and diversify in different ways.
True, but then again, there are plenty of films that have a cast of six, seven, or eight lead characters that manage to introduce and develop all of them in the space of 1.5 or 2 hours. (Like
Ocean's Eleven, Inglorious Basterds, The Expendables,
etc.) There's no reason why more films can't have more female lead characters representing more diversity in terms of personality types. Since there are plenty of examples of films that successfully juggle a large cast of male characters, after all. And
My Little Pony
managed to introduce and develop its six lead characters in the very first two-part episode, which lasted only forty minutes total.
