Product Description

She may be the smartest unicorn in Equestria, but Twilight Sparkle gets an “incomplete” in friendship. There’s more to life than learning magic, after all – so Princess Celestia sends her pupil to Ponyville where she meets five special ponies who take her on exciting adventures and teach her the most powerful magic of all…the magic of friendship.

Excellent! Now I can finally watch on TV a five star series that I have previously only able to watch on the computer.

I promptly received my order only to find that the padded bag rattled. Fearing that the DVDs were damaged during shipment I opened the bag. The cardboard sleeve was undamaged, very good artwork by the by. The plastic wrap was also undamaged. However the plastic clam-shell was. If you consider the clam-shell a mouth, mine was missing its front teeth. Leaving a 0.5cm x 7cm hole. It was obviously damaged in the factory, very poor quality control on the manufacturer’s part. Since the clam-shell can close and the DVDs are undamaged, I won't bother getting it replaced.

Since the DVD set is an Amazon Exclusive I expected a bare bones package. While English is the only language available. If it had French, I would have bought one for my niece for Christmas. The package claims to have a few bonus features: Sing-alongs, coloring sheets and audio commentaries. It has 2 songs you can sing along with, one of them an extended version of the opening song. 5 coloring sheets you can print out. Fans of Fluttershy are going to be disappointed. As for the audio commentaries, there are no audio commentaries. At least what I consider to be audio commentaries. What it does have is six 30 seconds promos. Advertising that features a major character with the voice of Twilight Sparkle, ahem, “commenting” about that character.

One thing I particularly liked about this DVD set is that you can skip the opening song. Not all season packs allow you to do that. Should be a standard in my opinion. However, you can't do that with the 23rd episode. Sloppy that.

All in all, a terrific series in a DVD set that exceeded my expectation but was flawed. I can only give it 4 stars.

Let's face it: if a cartoon is based on a line of toys, generally speaking that's not a good sign. A few such shows, like the original He-Man, acquire a certain ignominious cult following in the "so bad it's good" category. Seriously, that one had to be far and away the campest children's show ever made...

But, I digress.

This, the latest incarnation in the My Little Pony franchise, does not fall into the "so bad it's good" category. It's just good. Really good. Smart, too.

On a superficial level the tried and true formula remains unchanged. Candy-bright characters and sickly-sweet morality tales parade across our screens, preaching the same tired old lessons kids have rammed down their throats in so many other shows. Poor devils.

The good part comes in the delivery. The writing, the voice acting, and the artwork are all genuinely witty, and everything is handled with a certain deft panache. Without being in any way hard or cynical, much less descending into mere self-parody, beneath the surface the underlying sensibilities are actually rather grown-up. There's a definite feeling of adults at play here, of a show created by people who genuinely had a lot of fun in making it. Perhaps as a result there's a real lightness of touch, and both the show itself and the individual characters are all utterly charming. It's sweet, but not saccharine.

For us, the humble viewers, the funniest parts by far are when the ponies totally freak out and "lose it". I've put "lose it" in quotation marks because it actually is a quote. I first found my way to this show via a clip on YouTube entitled "Pinkie Pie Loses It". There's also a host of other similar clips from the show that have been uploaded to that site.

This dvd is everything you expect and more. The commentaries were the main reason I bought this one and I have to say they exceeded my expectation. The only downside I see is that there are too few of them. Only key episodes like the two pilots, "Winter Wrap Up" and "Suited for Success" have commentaries available.

As for the box art, it looks great, but could use some improvement. Many of the character vectors are the old style ones that are sadly too often used; Their quality is not on par with the actual show models and they clash with the newer vectors that were thrown in the mix (Twilight and Rarity, along with Spike and Angel on the front cover for example).

Despite these few problems, this is an almost essential addition to any FIM collection and an excellent gift for My Little Pony fans.

Well I'm sure there's not much to say that hasn't already been said. This isn't the little girl show G3 created the reputation of, this has many forms of appeal to older viewers as well such as references only we would get, humor, moral outlook, character development, etc. I love the characters and many other things about it. And nowadays I'm extremely picky about what I watch. G1 was all right (I've only seen the Tirek and Lavan episodes since they're the ones that kill off the villain) but nowhere near as good as G4 (Friendship is Magic). This show is also unique for its style of having two-part premiers and sometimes finals with a main villain who poses a real threat and in some cases is killed off, and almost every other episode being more lighthearted with no real villains while still being extremely entertaining in its own way, kinda like telling new stories with the characters we love. My favorite Mane 6 is Rainbow Dash, and my favorite alicorn is Luna.

I like that this DVD has a commentary unlike Seasons 2 and 3, I really would have liked to hear what they had to say about a certain villain falling off a mountain at the end of Season 2 (I think she's dead but others argue because they want her to survive).
