Even if that's the only thing a show (much less FiM) has going for it? Even if it comes at the cost of a show's creativity or even the viewers' intelligence? Even if it means that a show has to try to be something it's not? FiM may have had ambition, but ambition by itself isn't enough. Moreover, it really ended up being too ambitious, resulting in everything I said in my last post. Now, being ambitious isn't a bad thing, mind you, but sometimes, sticking with what works also works. I suppose it depends on each individual show, but FiM was clearly trying to be ambitious and stick with works, all at the same time, and again, I already mentioned the results earlier. Sometimes it (doing both at the same time) works, but other times it doesn't, and FiM simply was one of those times it doesn't work in the long run. Okay, so this new Care Bears series may be sticking with what works, but as a result, it also isn't trying to be something it's not, either.
