Looks like an official air date for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 3 has been set in stone. The date is Saturday, November 10, 2012, beginning at 10 a.m. with the anticipated two-part premiere episodes "The Crystal Empire", Parts 1 & 2.
Aw, no. They brought back Shining Armor. That bastard! Why did he have to come back?
Well, I guess it couldn't be avoided, but anyways... In about a little less than a month, excited fans and bronies get to uncover the mysteries surrounding the cursed empire of the north after a thousand-year absence (get a lot of those, don't we?) and I get to root for the new villain, King Sombra, to put on one hell of a show. If he can't bring the series up to snuff, what can?
