Review: “My Little Pony: Pinkie Pie Party” and “Chuck & Friends: When Trucks Fly” Are More Fun from the Hub

by Ed Liuon March 4, 2013
The latest My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic DVD, Pinkie Pie Party, collects 5 more episodes of the Hub’s breakout hit show, centering on the perpetually cheerful, slightly off-kilter Pinkie Pie. Taken from across the show’s three seasons to date, all five episodes are quite good and manage to maintain the theme (not always true […]

My Little Pony – Can Alicorns be Magic?

by on 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 on 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 […]

by Ed Liuon February 15, 2013

Review: “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic – Adventures in the Crystal Empire” & “Mickey & Donald Have a Farm”

by Ed Liuon December 21, 2012
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 […]

by Ed Liuon December 19, 2012
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 […]
