So I finally saw Season 2 of Pony Life and by extension, means that I saw the whole series.
About the season, I can definitely say that it is better than the first one. The magical balloon arc which brings out the magic bubbles was actually a really interesting idea and I’m disappointed that they just dropped that in less than five episodes, the giant thing literally just vanishes into thin air with no explanation as to what it is or who sent it or how those magic bubbles work. I would’ve loved it if we had more episodes or even the entire season revolve around that, that would’ve been really interesting. The three new characters from the new dimension were decent, I thought they were a nice change of pace at establishing a new identity. The comet arc was okay while the rest of the arcs like the time travel, the carnival, the play and Discord’s magic were all eh, didn’t really care for them. Other than all that, the humor, zaniness, pacing and pop culture references were mostly the same from the first season.
Overall though, Pony Life was mostly just average for me. It wasn’t really bad, it did have some good moments and jokes that did make me laugh and smile, but it wasn’t anything to write home about either. It was just banking off of trends that were popular at the time and keeping it safe for the kiddies while they waited for G5. Still gonna stick with FIM though but either way, it was a decent effort for Boulder Media.
I give it a C+
