This series is often a love/hate issue. For those looking for pure remake of the original series, they are disappointed, for those looking for something different they love it.
In short, this is actually an anthrophorphic series, very well done with the ponies having a developed culture, history, and social structure, mirroring humans in some ways, but different enough in others. Small details such as soccer teams wearing different color leg warmers to represent their team, or the transition from quadrupedal locomotion to bipedal and back make the series something special. Meny of the topics are to mature for then younger audience, dating, boy troubles, and a lot of the dialog often uses terms and such more suited to a young adult audience. But by far, the animation, as well as the story lines, are some of the best, the songs are OK, and for a 8-12 year old, the concepts and issues will mean more then random violence or slapstick humor of other cartoons.
