My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

So do hundreds of other shows, yet very few have a cult of nerds following them.

 

Why was this show picked? Anyone know?

Because it is simply the most extreme show they can watch. It's target is extremely girly and for little kids. Phineas and Ferb, for instance, would be a great substitute for My Little Pony, however, it's gender-neutral and aimed for kids of all ages. It won't have the same *effect* as MLP would have.

 

All going back to the bandwagon, of course.

Why not something like Winx Club or W.I.T.C.H.? (ignore that fact that I'm aware of these shows)

Had to Google that, ha.

 

Well of course there's an community reason for the spark of MLP, but this massive bandwagon/popularity? As my post.

 

That said, if the spark started with Winx...then this thread would be called something else.

Actually, I've watched Winx, and I can honestly say that MLP is a better (or at least less bad) show. Winx, I feel, has a much more targeted audience, whereas MLP is not as ... piercing ... to a guy watching the show (much like in the sense of Powerpuff Girls. Maybe I'm an odd fellow).

It's definitely better than a lot of the other cartoons currently running on my channels, which have poor / lacklustre characters, dialogue, graphics or a mix of those.

If you really didn't want stupid mindless [cabbage] you wouldn't be on /b/ in the first place. I agree with your view on MLP though.

 

There are diamonds in the piles of poop.

 

I don't know about /b/, but /gif/ has changed the way I look at cars and people forever.

Everything about this show makes sense now that I've watched this:

Dear [bleep]ing god. I just cringed the whole time watching this.

 

Oh my god, look at those women at around 1:09-1:12. I'm not sure they're even women. #-o

 

I don't think anyone who's against it is saying it's an awful show. It's a perfectly fine show for little girls. It just has an unnatural fan obsession from older men.

This is true.

 

I still can't comprehend how a programme made for infant girls can be so entertaining for men in their 20s and 30s. I watched it and almost spat my spaghetti on the floor at the horror of it.

I think the one in the pink wig is actually a guy..in a pink wig. Oh god I hope so.

I honestly don't see why Hasbro would take down the episodes.

 

First of all, a lot of people (including me) were introduced to the show through Youtube

 

Second of all, fans without cable can watch the show

 

Third of all, a lot of fans bought the toys and merch

I cant even watch it through cable. The local cable provider doesn't have the hub at all.

I'm not a fan of those bronies who just jumped on the bandwagon after watching like 2 episodes. I watched about 13 episodes before I knew there was a cult following, and I joined the community for the fun of it. I just hate it when both sides fight and hate on eachother.

 

So you're a pony hipster?...

Ok seriously this is over the top. People in real life are talking about it, even people who I never thought would get in to this sort of thing.

It is because Hasbro didn't take the videos down. If anyone here would actually visit EQD (like all bronies should) you would know that it was some random troll that posed as Hasbro. This happened before this year. The ponies should be back up on YouTube soon. Hasbro is selling more pony items than ever now with the invention of the brony community, and the revenue is too good to pass up. I mean, hell; they already grabbed me for like $10 worth of pony stuff. And possibly more on the way.

it's the new hip thing to pretend to like. Give it a few months and it'll be a thing of the past.

Why do people insist that we just "pretend to like it"?

 

As for your second sentence, Season 2.

Because that's how it started. In my opinion if you wanted to really troll the world, you'd all make a cult following on something even girlier than MLP. Like Winx Club or something.

I made a mistake flaming Hasbro for the takedowns.

 

More pony episodes were taken down by a company named, "Habsro", meaning it's a troll.

Maybe because they're not trolling the world? :rolleyes:

 

Anyway, something random to laugh about.

You know S1 ended in may, at the start of may. It's almost September now, it's been a few months. As for why we dont like something like Winx Club, because Winx Club sucks. Although maybe i'm not the best defender for the hardcore fandom, I don't follow it nearly as religiously as other people do.
