Via a magic mirror, Twilight Sparkle travels into an alternate universe in order to recover a crown that was stolen from the Crystal Empire. Upon her arrival she is horrified to learn that she has turned into a human.
Having an all cast of teenage ponies obviously leads to a lot of annoying teenage drama with predictable plot stories about who loves who. Fortunately enough, there are episodes which doesn't focus on this at all. Even though the Swedish dub features an obvious all adult cast, they did pick a good choice of voices.
Some episodes are kind of good, I think the episode where Bon-Bon is acting like a drama-queen because she isn't getting attention had a good lesson on what is important when someone in the family is ill. I think every spoiled brat in this world needs to view this episode at least ten times until it sinks in that they aren't the center of the universe. Another good example is when Clover wins concert tickets which all the ponies want, but she can only choose one of her friends to go with her. I thought the episode had a very good moral and also showed how fake some friends can be out of selfishness.
An example of what is bad about this show is the episode where they are having one of the ponies dressing up as a princess. One of the other ponies moves the candy bowl away and tells her "A princess is supposed to be slim!" Unfortunately this seems to be an undying concept where "ugly" women aren't deemed worthy of being royal and have to look like a fashion model to be worthy of her prince. Another bad thing is that most of the male characters are portrayed and often put into situations which made them look like jerks. Two of the main guys often only act like jerks. It would be nice to have had some more nice male characters.
Watchable, has some good morals, the characters had good personalities. I'm just not fond of the stereotypical teen drama which takes too much attention away.
