    Ah, My Little Pony. A name that, in the minds of many people, invokes images of cheaply-made and comically saccharine cartoons with zero interesting stories, zero interesting characters, and an air of crass commercialism; after all, the cartoons are based on a popular girls’ toy line, and all the cartoons have to do is sell said toys. But Friendship is Magic, which premiered last October on newly-launched cable network The Hub, is a very different creature indeed. Created and developed by Lauren Faust, who some people may remember as a writer for The Powerpuff Girls, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is a series with compelling storylines, wonderful and engaging characters, exceptional animation, delightful humour, and no crass commercialism anywhere in sight. This show, which by all intents and purposes should not have been good, is one of the best animated series to come along in years.Why? Let’s start over.You may have heard in the last few months that this series has picked up a massive Internet following of primarily teenage & adult males, who call themselves “bronies”. To those who would ask why grown men would watch a My Little Pony cartoon and express sincere, non-ironic enjoyment of it, I counter with another question: why do adults watch animated series like Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain, Tiny Toons, the aforementioned Powerpuff Girls, or Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends? All these series have one thing in common: they all can be enjoyed by adults on a different level from the target audience of young children. They all have elements that cater to adults, be they parents with kids or hardcore animation fans. Such is the case with Friendship is Magic.Let’s start with our protagonists. There’s the antisocial bookworm Twilight Sparkle, her assistant baby dragon Spike, the hyperactive Pinkie Pie, the bashful Fluttershy, the hardworking Applejack, the overconfident yet loyal Rainbow Dash, and the glamorous fashionista Rarity. All these brilliantly voiced and characterized individuals live in the cleverly-named kingdom of Equestria, whose supreme ruler, Princess Celestia, has sent Twilight to the small town of Ponyville in order for her to make some friends. Sound cheesy? It is, for the most part. But watching the series, one finds it hard to believe that this cartoon even bears the My Little Pony name. This series, while definitely relying on extreme cuteness for its character designs (especially in Fluttershy’s case), is not sickly sweet and saccharine like the cartoons that preceded it; it’s more focused on its characters and storylines than it is on selling toys.After the two-part premiere which introduces the characters, the series evolves into an “adventure of the week” format, where Twilight and her friends have to solve a dilemma or work out the kinks in their friendships. Often, characters have fierce rivalries between each other, or don’t get along together as well as others. These are not flawless, stereotypical, shallow characters like you usually see in girls’ cartoons. These are distinct individuals with definite flaws who are trying to accept their differences in order to maintain their friendships; not a bad moral for a cartoon that’s meant to sell toys.Basically, in order to truly enjoy this series, you need to take all your preconceptions about My Little Pony and throw them in a bin. Yes, it is a show about candy-coloured ponies, but that’s where the similarities between new and old end. One particularly notable aspect of the show is the music; every so often, an episode will have a musical number. But unlike, say, a Land Before Time sequel where the songs have no bearing on the plot and serve only to slow things down and annoy the viewer, the songs in Friendship is Magic, on top of being well-written and performed, only pop up when they have a bearing on the plot. Of note is the season 1 finale’s song, At the Gala, an “I Want” song of epic proportions– the lyrics, music and animation are flawless. And even when the songs appear out of nowhere, the show is self-aware enough to lampshade such annoyances; in one instance, a cheesy song by Pinkie Pie about sharing and caring is declared by the other characters to be the worst song they’ve ever heard.On top of that, the show does occasionally throw in jokes clearly geared towards an adult viewer; for instance, in one episode, Pinkie Pie chases after a frantically-fleeing Rainbow Dash by slowly hopping after her, much in the same way Pepe le Pew chases after his feline affection in Looney Tunes. One scene where Twilight and Spike are chased around town by a massive mob is accompanied by a song sounding suspiciously similar to Yakety Sax of Benny Hill Show fame. And one character jokingly refers to Spike as “Huffy, the Magic Dragon” after he storms off trying to get some sleep. It’s references like this and the lack of blatant commercialism that let adult…

    MLP: FiM is probably the best show ever made. The story tells about Twilight Sparkle and her friends getting into adventures and learning about friendship. Upon it’s arrival, it has generated fans young and old and has become an instant classic thanks to the heart, soul, beauty, and genius that is Lauren Faust (wife of Powerpuff Girls creator Craig McCracken) who’s creativity and brilliantness made this show a success. Now the show will finally arrive on DVD thanks to Shout! 9which I dub as the next Anchor Bay). The DVD will consist of 5 or so selected episodes. Alot of people are complaining that they want a season box set loaded with features and believe me I want that too but remember, it’s a kids show and kids want to enjoy it as much as the fanbase and let me say I’m fine and happy with this release as long as we get the best incarnation of MLP to date!

UK construction data revised higher, policy moves may hold sector back

British construction output grew faster than previously thought in the first quarter, new figures showed on Friday, but could slow in the next three months, particularly after the government took steps to cool the housing market. Finance minister George Osborne said on Thursday that he would give the Bank of England stronger powers to curb mortgage lending, while BoE Governor Mark Carney said interest rates could rise sooner than financial markets expect. The comments sent sterling and short-dated British government bond yields soaring and caused shares to plunge, with housebuilders particularly hard hit. Economists say Osborne's announcement means the Bank may adopt a more direct approach when trying to curb mortgage lending.
