Why ask these hard questions? kidding - but At the moment at least, Id have to say Twilight, although Applejack is a close second. probably has to do with being a nerd and growing up in west Texas.
As a DM for a group of D&D players, I have to say The two parters are my favorites (both of them...) but between the two I prefer the season 1 two-parter (mare in the moon and the elements of harmony) since they pretty much are a classic RPG setup, and that just ammuses me, A lot more than it should to be completely honest.
My favorite thing about the show is that it doesn't shoe-horn itself into its target demographic, by which I mean they did not make everything dumbed down "for the kids". the creative team went out of their way to make the show intelligently and show a real grasp of good sense and great skill. that and they just nail the jokes dead on, and who wouldn't appreciate that?
Hey, the name's Matt, though I know at least one person here already knows that. I became of fan of the show when a friend of mine in California bombarded my IM and Email with pony until I relented and watched it, been enjoying it since.
