    Yep, I've now seen this personally myself in one of the large supermarkets in Kidderminster -- Tesco I think. Absolutely, most definitely, real!

    I'd buy but I fear for my gender identity if I bought a magazine like th-- wait, I'm a girl?

    Time to go relive my childhood by buying magazines for the freebies then throwing them away!

    Interesting...

    It's a matter of time before we do see full DVDs everywhere.

    So, gave the DVD a spin, as others have stated, it's definitely Applebuck Season and not Suited For Success (despite what the sleeve and DVD menu say). The quality is basically what you'd expect from DVD. It's not bad by any means, but as you'd expect, the quality is noticeably inferior to the HD versions on Netflix. I'm almost certain the video runs slightly too quickly too. The voices seem a little higher pitched than they should be and the intro music is slightly too fast. Has anyone else noticed this or is it just me? I only watched a few minutes of Applebuck Season to test the DVD so I could be mistaken.

    That's the second one with that mistake. So I take it it's Hasbro's fault with this?

    I dont think its a mistake on Hasbro's part. I belive its the mistake on the distrubuter, they just put on what ever they are told to
    like example:
    Boss: "I want you to put two of these My Little Pony episodes on for this freebie DVD"
    Lacky 1: "Any two in mind?"
    Boss: "I dont know do I look like Im into cartoons for girls? just pick two!"
    Lacky 2: "Just any two?"
    Boss: "Pick two from the list we got"
    *Lacky 1 and Lacky 2 pick the two episodes from the list and send to get copied onto DVD's*
    Slave: "Programming two episodes........annnnnnnnd DONE!"
    Lacky 2: "What episodes did you put on there again?"
    Slave: "Erm....one called Appelbuck Season...and.....erm.....Suited for Sucess....I think"
    Lack 2: "Meh close enough time to get this printed, you wanan go for a pint after work?"
    Slave: "Sounds good to me mate"
    *While Lacky 2 and Slave discusse their social gathering Lacky 1 comes in and picks up the DVD's for printing and sleveing*

    Got this reply from Girl Talk which is interesting because the one we were talking about last week was issue 478. So is there another one today? Will it contain the same episodes?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your email. There will be a free My Little Pony DVD in issue 479 of Girl Talk magazine. The on sale date is 29 May.

    Thanks and best wishes,
    Amy

    I'll head over to ASDA at lunchtime and check, unless someone can head to a newsagents and do some recon any sooner.

    Just seen the latest issue of Girl Talk on the shelf in ASDA, the DVD is the same one as before. I didn't buy it so I can't confirm if it has the correct episodes on the disc though. Has anyone bought it who can confirm?

    Again, the issues of 479 in Sainsburys Hitchin don't have the DVDs, as it was last week with 478. I have shaken the bags of a few today. They must have a really dud batch! No animal mags on the shelf either, but will look in a different store this evening.

    If you can't find one and would like one, I can pick one up and post it or something.

    Thanks, I will see what I can find tonight. Hurry up box set, I would rather buy that than magazine with strange rubber cats and micro-stickers of rabbits on. In my head canon, Fluttershy just looked sad that I said that. Oh dear.
