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.
