My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Thread

M2K2 and Metroid Construction have one, so why not here?

I like the characters Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie, and have watched all 26 episodes. Trust me, if you haven't watched it, watch it, you will most likely love it.

There must be more people here that watch this delightful show! I simply can't wait for the second season! Pinkie Pie is the best pony :awesome:

I was pretty impressed with what I saw. It was chill entertainment when I needed a break from studies. :awesome: And the animation and art direction is flipping fantastic.

Here's an interesting blogpost by Jacob Minkoff from Naughty Dog about it - OMGPONIES

Ohohoho, you've just opned Pandora's box mate. I've been spending a lot of time on the FIM thread over at TvTropes, a thread which is over 520 pages long. That's 13,000 posts!

SO, for those of you who don't know Friendshp is Magic is a My Little Pony show. It also happens to rock. It's produced by Lauren Faust, who played a major role in both The Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends. SHortly after it aired it's popularity spread across the internet like an X-Parasite. Amoung other things Bill Clinto was asked some Pony Trivia questions on a radio program. (He got them all right BTW.) Not to mention the hundreds of video's made using footage from the show overlayed with any audio you can think of.

Anyway, for a sample of the show's excellent characterization and writing, please look below...



And now I'm going to link to one video completely at random.

I saw the first two episodes, plus one where they tried to stop some dragon from blowing smoke into their village.

Meh. It was okay, I guess.

Looks like something to torture a friend of mine with. I don't see how I could watch this without wearing a paper bag over my head.

*shrugs* It's just a fun cartoon, ala The Powerpuff Girls. (W/O the bite, of course. :awesome: )

I wanted to watch that show but I haven't gotten around to viewing it yet.
I enjoyed the Powerpuff Girls so... this show should be good.

Right now I'm questioning just how popular this series is, and if it's really worth my time.
I've been exposed to countless internet memes and avatar profile-pics and gifs of it... it seems too overwhelming! I might not enjoy it after all...

My head is spinning. :geemer:

I watched the 2 part Pilot just now. I can definitely see why people like it. It has a good mix of humor, awesome moments, and character growth. (I really liked the anime-style power up/character growth in the pilot.) Anything that is too cute or too annoying/boring isn't really a problem because the show moves so fast that you are past it before it bogs anything down. In fact, the fast pacing is really nice here and keeps the show flowing very well.

I'm not sure if I'll keep watching, but I can respect the pony show.

I'm reeeally curious about it. I'm probably going to watch the first few episodes this weekend. Looking forward to it.

So for those of you who like it, how much of a factor is nostalgia here? Any of you feel like it's a reliving of your childhood?

I had never seen an episode of My Little Pony ever before. After becoming a fan of this show I took a look at a few old episodes here and there. What I saw was incredibly saccharin and full of Tastes Like Diabetes.

I watched six or seven episodes and liked it. Count me bronified.

I like Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy.

This will induce rage, Fox news knows no bounds to destroy the spirits of the ones that aren't American enough.
