    I've just finished watching the G1 pilot, Rescue At Midnight Castle, and I have to say... it wasn't terrible.

    The ponies themselves didn't seem to have as much character as the G4 lot. None of them really stood out at all. They definately looked more equine than the stylized G4 ponies, which could be seen as either a positive or a negative.

    I wasn't a fan of Megan. I can see why they put her in, to give girls someone to relate to, but it's really not needed. I wasn't too keen on the gnome bloke either.

    The villans though, now they were quite interesting. Tirak is a villan I'd like to see brought into the new series. I think they could really do something with him. If they could get Victor Caroli to voice him again that would be even better.

    The story was pretty good. I could see a lot of it influencing the opening 2 parter of FiM (villan wanting to bring forth eternal night etc). The bit where they transformed the ponies into monsters I could see being quite scary for a young girl. It was certainly darker than I was expecting.

    So yeah while I didn't enjoy it as much as FiM there were still some elements that I would like to see brought into the new series.

    Not the Sea Ponies though. They were just bizarre (Shoo be doo!)

    Can anyone recommend a G2 episode I should watch? I'm thinking of watching at least 1 episode from each generation, including *shudders* G3.5, to see what they were all about.

    Well I'm glad you appreciate the older shows, I don't think they really get enough credit. And although Gen2 had my favourite toys when I was younger, I don't actually remember watching a show for them. It was weird watching My Little Pony the Movie and seeing just how much I actually remembered from it last night though. I might not remember names and stuff but I remembered a lot of the scenes to great detail. And Og still scares me...

    Apparently when I was small I had a MLP toy for some reason and then went to nursery for the first time and social conventions made me realise it was girly and so never played with it again.

    It's probably actually my favourite PC game of all time.

    I'm going to make a let's play vid when it arrives. I used to play it like constantly. I'm not even exaggerating.

    Well I have Windows 7 so I'm seriously hoping it does...

    If not I'll have to get my tech support to come up with a way for me to play it. LOVE having a computer nerd boyfriend. XD I'll let you know though.

    Right click -> Troubleshoot compatibility
    Pretty much the easiest way to see if it'll work on Windows 7, it should as Windows 7 is more stable with older programs than Vista ever was or will be :3
