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 […]

If you’ve been paying any attention at all to the Hub, it’s not going to be much of a surprise that the season finale of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, “Magical Mystery Cure,” promises a big change to the status quo of the show. Ads have been running for at least two weeks and […]

In my review of the first season DVD set of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, I compared the show to playing the blues, noting that blues is simple music and simple music is the hardest music to play. The five episodes of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic on the latest “soccer mom” DVD […]

Review: "My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic" Season 1: Pony Up for This One

The late, great blues guitar player Albert Collins once said, “Simple music is the hardest music in the world to play. And blues is simple music.” The basics of a 12-bar blues and a minor pentatonic scale are simple, but “simple” does not mean “easy.” There’s a gigantic and somewhat ineffable gap between understanding those […]

Review: "Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters" Rises to the Challenge

thumb-kaijudodvd

I’m not sure if it’s properly calibrated expectations or just plain fickleness of mood, but either way I have a much more positive impression of Kaijudo after a second look. The first five episodes of the show are available on the extensively named Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters – Creatures Unleashed, and probably the […]

Review: "Littlest Pet Shop" Stumbles Early, But Recovers Nicely

thumb-littlestpetshopreview

My honest advice for viewers of the Hub’s newest show, Littlest Pet Shop, is to jump straight to episode 2 and get what you need about the first episode from the pre-credits recap segment. The show is fine, the characters are adorable, and like every other show on the Hub, The Littlest Pet Shop doesn’t […]

I showed up for the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic panel a good twenty minutes before it was set to begin, and much to my surprise, there was a massive line snaking along the wall that went around several corners, full of folks dressed up as their favorite pony or wearing My Little Pony […]

Review: "Transformers: Rescue Bots: Roll to the Rescue" While You Guys Were Fighting Unicron ...

Rescuebots4

Transformers is the story of violent giant robots that destroyed their own planet with a stupid and pointless war, then brought their battle to Earth and seem always on the verge of destroying that planet, too. Characters are locked in constant conflict. They suffer, and they die. Because the characters are robots, such things have […]
