Your loss mate.
Personally, I had lots of fun with it.
I absolutely love the Mane-iac, she's probably my favorite villain now, her ultra hammy dialogue and batshit crazy behaviour were highly enjoyable. That and being basically a mix of the Joker (completely insane) and Doc Ok (the tentacle mane and using/building odd weaponry).
I liked how Spike was handled and Rarity absolutely shined here, an artist with a very creative mind having the ability to conjure constructs akin to one of the lantern corps fits her perfectly, and she makes use of it in funny and clever ways.
Fluttershy's Hulking out moment was as ridiculously over the top as I thought it would be.
One complaint I have was that, well, it ended pretty quick. I think THIS would have worked great as a movie, or at least a two parter. Detailing the power ponies and the Mane-iac and henchmen more would have made them even better.
FIM has always been a slice of life show, and this is the first season with a more overarching plot line. I think making more two-parter arcs would honestly allow for more detailed storylines. I personally am hopefull that such arcs become a reality (in this season or potential future ones).
I am really going to miss these abilities, they are far more interesting than the elements of harmony and they each fit the ponies so well.
And you keep shouting about disrespect, when the Rarity comic from the micro series was one of the best pieces of pony material.
