Rainbow Dash is about 20% cooler than the rest of the ponies, but if I had to pick a second favorite, it'd be Twilight. Also, the best shipping couple is TwiDash.
My favorite episode is the Cutie Mark Crusaders, because it just proves that Rainbow is the best pony. I mean, the others would still be Blank Flanks without her :P
It has the best animation I've seen since Avatar: The Last Airbender, a solid plot, well developed characters, actually funny jokes, and endearing personalities. I also don't mind the fact that it's something I enjoy which a majority of the population can't understand. The less open-minded, more dense portion of the world can't get past the fact that it's a show about ponies, and see the actual good show underneath.
I came into MLP:FiM in college, when my GF at the time had me watch a couple episodes with her. I ended up searching the rest out on my own, and marathoning the entire season. :P
