I just watched the first episode just to see what was it like (It has been 18 years since I last watched a My Little Pony something). I maybe 23, but I have to admit the creativity of the new series. The first episode was so good, that I quickly thought it to be better than the original series. Interestingly enough, there is a very good plot element going on. Spoiler I wonder... I'm pretty sure that the Elements Of Harmony are actually the 6 main Ponies. Love the new theme music. Not very dark like the Original Series was. My Little Pony (80s) followed the same footsteps as Transformers G1 and G. I. Joe ARAH, taking a similar format. FIM still follows the Good vs. Evil story but with a more child friendly manner rather than creepy. I'll be watching till the first plot is over or till the season's finale. Not thinking of continuing. (Strike that. I'm continuing!) Little Kids should definitely watch this series. One of the best I've seen in recent years.
