Having social issues, I'm learning that friends are definately magic, and helps prompt me to consider how my behaviour may affect others.
Learning how to behave socially seems effective for both kids, and adults with learning disabilities such as myself.
Thank you every pony ;-)

I love the new series of MLP, with the creative mind of Lauren Faust-and if you know that name, you'll appreciate this-behind this creation, it's not a surprise that this show is a hit.
The World of Equestria and the creation of the great characters with a wonderful framework for the building of the charaters is just the beginning. The writing is wonderful, especially with a show of the history of MLP, some of them aren't that great and this one proves that when given the chance to expand of the magical side and not just to shill toys(because we know we've all given in anyway).
It's a brilliant move and it's still going strong 4 years later.
With such a great fan community surrounding it, this is one you'll enjoy if you give it the chance it deserves.

Already bought this from Amazon's US operation, so what you see here is what I wrote as a review for that. Well, most of it.
This is what revitalised this franchise which first started back in the 1980s but had, until this new series, languished in the "cutesy preachy merchandisey" animations such as the Care Bears, Pound Puppies and so forth. With the creative power of Lauren Faust and crew, with the experience of shows such as The Powerpuff Girls behind them, this new version features redesigned characters, new plots (sic) and a style of writing that has gone beyond its target demographic, spawning a whole new following that few expected
Twilight Sparkle is a book-obsessed pony whose world is suddenly turned upside down when she discovers that and ancient prophesy is about to come true. It seems, however, that her mentor isn't taking her seriously when she advises Twilight to put her books down and hoof it to Ponyville to check on preparations there for the Midsummer Sun festival and make some friends. That's where it all began!
