    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.
    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.

    I f'ing love Pony's now. Just watched it a second time via youtube to catch the few minutes I missed. I can't believe that it's so good.... I have been knocked over by it's cuteness.

    Can't wait to see more.

    My Little Pony is going to be huge!

    Looking through posts on youtube and 4chan.... it's attracting a pretty large crowd... even guys (like myself).

    If this is the quality we can expect from the new Hasbro/Hub shows.... things are looking up in the world of cartoons.

    Long live Nightmare Moon!!!!!!!

    I think it is done by the same people who did Powerpuff girls (I read that somewhere I think). Where's Shibamura_Prime? I am sure he can give a better opinion about it than most.

    Edit: See he beat me to it by a minute!

    Wow, My Local Walmart already has a Toy Set from this series! Complete with a DVD included! I almost bought it... but, weird confession, my girl doesn't like the toys so much, so I didn't pick it up. Besides, it was unpriced.

    yep, the set had celesita, who is really tall and elegant, three or four little ponies (pinky pie, etc) and then spike who is so cute too.

    it also had a DVD. you know what - I'm going back and getting it!

    CORRECTION: it's story book, not a DVD, :(

    I like the giftset because it shows off the cartoon hairstyles pretty well (since the regular ponies have rooted hair). I'm kinda miffed because Celestia is pink instead of white a la Swiftwind from She-ra. I know why the color changed happened, but that doesn't mean I can't complain about it. XD

    I do hope that there's a Nightmare Moon down the road, even if she's just a recolor of Princess Celestia. Can anyone say "SDCC 2011 Exclusive"...? ^_^

    The series was a pleasant surprise when I watched it. Managed to get a few other people addicted to it too. "I never thought I'd be WANTING to watching MLP' was a common comment. :D

    I had doubt about the show but I am glad they were wrong. Love the series as a kid the tiny ponies with big head toys they had out for the newer line did not impress me. I do like these ponies and the toys look intresting. Might have to get one.
