The show follows Bloom and her fairy friends as they face formidable enemies, develop their powers, and find relationships. The main villains are called the Trix, three witches who are obsessed with power and whose goals include the capture of Bloom and destruction of Alfea. The animation, particularly the transformation sequences, is well done and uses a lot of bright colours as befits a girls' show.
However the current (sixth) season is nowhere near as good as the previous ones, making me think that the creators/writers are running out of ideas. (Mind, this is from an adult point of view.) The storyline is interesting but the villains are predictable and the heroes make stupid mistakes. For example, one episode features vampires overrunning a town, and it takes almost the entire episode for one of the fairies to realize that her light-based powers can destroy the vampires.
It doesn't surprise me that a seventh season is in the works, given how popular the show is. But I think they ought to give it a rest.
