by Ed Liuon February 22, 2013
In defending My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic from detractors, show creator Lauren Faust wrote: On TV, though, I couldn’t tell one girl character from another and they just had endless tea parties, giggled over nothing and defeated villains by either sharing with them or crying–which miraculously inspired the villain to turn nice…Some of the […]

by Juu-kuchion February 16, 2013
Well, it finally happened.  After months of speculation, leaks, then an official announcement, we’ve now witnessed Twilight Sparkle become an alicorn princess.  What did I think of how it was pulled off?  Aesthetically not too bad, story-wise exceptionally lifeless and didactic.  It was as if the whole “destiny” part was an afterthought compared to the […]

My Little Pony: The Alicorn Cometh - A Neigh-Sayers View

by The Huntsmanon February 16, 2013
There weren’t a whole lot of us who watched My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic back when it premiered in 2010.  After all, it was a My Little Pony cartoon, and the new network it was premiering on was owned in part by a toy company.  Many believed that it would be just as bad […]
