I would like to be on the record saying that I absolutely adore this show.

Wow Facepalm

How things have changed. The fandom surrounding the show scared me off. Also the creators were pandering to said fandom. I cut cold turkey and never looked back.

Why must the pure and innocent be corrupted Dodgy

I suppose you're the opposite of me, then. I think the fandom is what makes the show great, and if the creators didn't acknowledge them, the quality would drop due to the demographic being nothing but little girls in their eyes. I do NOT relate to little girls.

RE: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
I watched the show for a while. Secretly.
I must say, the quality is there, as it should. When the show is for little girls and violence is off limits (I mean, basing it all on violence, that is), the space must be filled with some real creativity. It's also good that character development goes across multiple series, so it's not just a silly story like everything else for that age category. (not that I'd know)

One thing I like about the show are ocassional moments of quite mature humor - in a good way. But that's just about once per show at most and I don't think kids would appreciate or notice.

Yeah, if I had a daughter and needed to explain her the Theosophical principles of occult discipleship, I would watch the show with her and describe the story of Twilight Sparkle. That is a classy archetype of the story of disciple on a path, with a guru, studying, mastering skills, undergoing trials and initiations into greater mysteries. TS is even violet color, which is an a classy color of magic and occult ritual. If I didn't know that these archetypes underlie almost most decent stories, I'd think the screenplay was written by a couple of old ladies from the local Theosophical chapter.

That much said, there's only a limited amount of predictable juvenile stuff I can handle. Maybe my future progeny - it will definitely help to make learning English fun for them.

Something that may interest you peoples:

One of the upcoming episodes of MLP is going to be focused around faith:

(S04, E21: Leap of Faith
Air Date: March 30th
Synopsis: Applejack is doubtful of the Flim Flam Brothers' cure-all tonic; Granny Smith tries it and it seems to work.)

And for the 99.99% of those who didn't already know, this isn't the first time the show has attempted this. In the past, the issue was handled--erm, less than perfectly:
