In the year, 2010... it was born... 2011, it grew... later that year, I watched it out of curiosity... I mean C'MON!! If you hear that DUDES are watching MLP you would be curious enough to know what's up! Anyway, this has to be the best generation of MLP ever. Screw the other creepy generations! This is how MLP should look and be like! It's inspirational, educational, and believe it or not... it's funny! It even carries humor that the little girls wouldn't even get. I watched 2 FULL seasons of this show and I have to admit that it's one of the best family TV shows in modern time. Spongebob is still funny, but he was funnier back then. Don't think I'm odd or anything for watching this. Only a TRUE reviewer watches everything!
Friendship Is Magic takes place in the land of Equestria, populated by varieties of ponies (including variants of Pegasus and unicorn), along with numbers of other sentient and non-sentient creatures. The central character is Twilight Sparkle, a unicorn pony sent by her mentor Princess Celestia, ruler of Equestria, to the town of Ponyville to study the magic of friendship. In the show's opening episodes, Twilight resents this assignment, as she is more concerned about the foretold appearance of Nightmare Moon. When Nightmare Moon does appear, vowing everlasting night and causing Celestia to disappear, Twilight sets off with five other ponies-Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, and Rarity-to obtain the Elements of Harmony and defeat Nightmare Moon. Before Twilight can activate the Elements, Nightmare Moon appears and shatters them. In a flash of inspiration, Twilight realizes that each of her new friends represents one of the Elements of Harmony, and that she herself is the final piece, Magic. The magical power of the ponies' friendship reverts Nightmare Moon to a repentant Princess Luna. Celestia reappears, reunites with her sister Princess Luna, and allows Twilight to stay in Ponyville to continue studying the magic of friendship. - Wiki
I know after reading that, you must be bored. Trust me, I know it sounds cheesy, but if you watch the first two episodes, it makes the story more interesting. The show's concepts, humor, and characters just drags you back in to watch more, because you want to see more of what you liked in the first two episodes. I kept watching and watching until season 2's finale that just ended recently. The show just suffers a lot of animation glitches and mistakes. Like I can see the storyboard of a scene in the background (small and not too noticeable) or missing and forgotten things on a character. But what I love a lot in the show is a couple of voice actresses. One of my favorite voice actors, Tara Strong (Fairly Odd Parents, Powerpuff Girls, Princess Mononoke), voices the main character, Twilight Sparkle, who is the purple mare you see on the photo above. Tara is perfect for any role. Male or female! She can do it. If you have played "Batman: Arkham City", she voices Quinn. If you went to see "Ted", she voiced the bear's "I love you" function. She is everywhere! The other actress is Tabitha St. Germain (Martha Speaks, Supernatural) voices the hilarious, Rarity, who would be the white mare with a purple mane on the pic above. She gives Rarity a melodramatic personality as if she's in some William Shakespeare play. But one actress in this show voices two characters in a totally different sounding personality. Voice actress, Ashleigh Ball, voices Rainbow Dash, who has the personality of cocky and cool. She's the blue mare with multiple hair color. Ball also voices Applejack, who has a strong country personality. She's very easy to spot in the cover art above. Just look for a western pony. So those are the three best actresses of this show. I love the rest as well.
The show has hundreds and hundreds of morals. They won't stop, because every episode has to have one. When they gave education to share in one episode, the conflict in it was the same conflict you see in Avatar. Not a fight for freedom but a fight for land. They use the biggest conflicts in an episode when it turns out to have the simplest moral. Many movies do that as well. Darkness, excitement, hilarity, and big surprises! So like Bill Cosby once said, "If you're not careful, you may learn something before it's done. HEY, HEY, HEY!". I'm the brony MovieWiz, thanks for reading.
