My Little Pony: The Mentally Advanced Series is a series of videos that recontextualize episodes from the original show by re-editing and re-dubbing them. The general storylines are often kept somewhat intact, but the characters' personalities are drastically reinterpreted. Most of the voices are performed by the series' writer, FiMFlamFilosophy, who also performs these duties for Rainbow Dash Presents. The series' genesis was a result of creative differences with the team of another planned abridged series; FiMFlamFilosophy left and created his own videos from scratch.

Twilight discovers that Pinkie has unusual tremors, and that's not usually a sign of anything healthy! Pinkie insists that the tremors have to do with her psychic powers, but Pinkie is generally an unreliable source on anything. What does Twilight learn from all this? She learns friendship. She always learns about friendship.
Rainbow Dash is a horse with approximately one skill, and it is flying fast. Thus, when a competition emerges in Cloudsdale, Dash puts her powers to the test and proposes a marvelous plan! She will break the speed of sound. Nothing about her plan is imperfect and it will work out perfectly in the end, because life is like that always.
Thrackerzod meets with a friend from another dimension, revealing political troubles from the dreaming realm. Twilight Sparkle's merciless advance must be stopped at all costs, but how? Why, a sleep-over at Fluttershy's of course! Meanwhile, Fluttershy herself has decided that being good with kids needs to be one of her crucial accomplishments in life.
When Thrackerzod, Scootaloo, and Applebloom are surprised with a mandatory talent contest that may threaten their grades, the trio is forced to take drastic actions. They must acquire money by any means their child brains can conceive of, even if it means labor. One doesn't win a contest with their spirit alone! Unless the other kids don't have a budget either.
Spike's treasure hoard is captured by subterranean dogs that love gemstones! Oh, also Rarity gets captured too. Can Rarity stand up to the dumbest and least dangerous external threat in the entire history of the show? Honestly, she barely has to.
Rarity hires Fluttershy to model for her, and it turns out that Fluttershy's doormat personality is just perfect for a notoriously exploitative industry that preys on hopes and dreams.
The ponies go on a Wild West adventure, where it turns out a bunch of buffalo hate trees and have a really specific running path that goes to no specific destination for no specific reason. The conflict is that ponies have decided a desert is a great place for trees. Dash attempts to mediate their problem.
Fluttershy gets her moment in the spotlight! And of course she screws it all up. If you're going to assassinate someone's bird with love, it's not a good idea to practice on the one that belongs to the god princess of your country.
Ponyville's younger heroes are on a mission. A mission to do the same thing they do every single day without fail: try to seduce the world. That and kill Twilight Sparkle. Or maybe stay home and play board games one of these days. It's hard to tell, but there's definitely a fixation at work here.
Twilight gets an owl! There's nothing particularly amazing about. It hunts mice, sees in the dark, and generally does owl things. It's tame. Not much can be said. I guess we'll just kill time this episode.
The abridged series "MAS" is made by FiMFlamFilosophy. This is a CamRip from the footage of BABSCon 2015, where FiMFlamFilosophy showed it and said that people can film it and post if they want. Since I backed up all episodes from 1 to 22 before (he said he didn't mind), I did the same for this one, color-correcting so it would look a bit better and adding standard intro / outro text parts copied from episode 22. FiMFlamFilosophy said he won't be putting this episode on his channel because of possible copyright problems.
