Great Show, but Overrated
I love Friendship is Magic. I really do, but I will not lie and say that it's underappreciated or just right. For example, this is probably the largest section on Tv T and that's just...wrong. I know a lot of people like it, I know that it has a lot of tropes, but it is not the pinnacle of Western Animation that contains every plot device possible, and the characters section actually includes background characters and inanimate objects.

But onto the actual show. As we all know, Fi M revolves around the slice-o-life adventures of a group of candy colored ponies known as the Mane6. They learn lessons, overcome conflict and generally raise hell in there hometown. Now as a little kid's show, this is top notch: Smart dialogue, (most)episodes end with good morals, And it doesn't belittle the audience with condescension such as: Repeating the lesson in simple terms.

However, the show fumbles when it comes to things such as villains, Friend vs. Friend conflict ex. Mare-Do-Well/Griffin the Brush Off, and certain lessons that can be viewed the wrong way.

Overall, I'd give this show an 8.0 out of 10.
I agree that it seems to have a lot more tropes than is really necessary, especially in regards to background characters and inanimate objects. I know the show is popular, but still.

Yeah, I think it's gotten a little out of hand

This show is way too fucking overrated - sitting through Season 4 episodes is quite the chore for me.

The art style and voice acting appeal is still there, but amen to that.
