Official MLP:FiM General Discussion

Discussion in TV Shows started by Vadleon, Feb 28, 2012

  1. Jan 12, 2011
    I realize by posting a thread about My Little Pony that I'm probably going to catch a lot of flak from Forum users, but this thing has been coming up every now and then, and I thought I'd save some people the trouble of finding a place to discuss it. So here it is.

    My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic - General Discussion

    I first want to start off with a few rules:
    • Keep it civil. I realize not everyone watches the show, but if you hate it for whatever reason, don't come in here yelling "PONY HUMPING DOUCHEBAGS" since not only is that rude, but I would consider that harassment. Everyone has their opinions, but there is NO reason to flame members of the community based on a show they choose to watch. Suppose I didn't like House? Etc. Etc. Likewise, don't argue with people who do/don't like the show. There's really no point, and it'll more than likely just get out of hand. I realize that acceptance may be an uphill kinda thing, but I think a show some people like should be allowed it's own area.
    • This thread's goal is not to force people to like the show, but rather provide a place they can read about it and simply enable their curiosity. I hope to update it later with show information, references, and other things so it is reasonably informative and I'll try to keep it up to date. The idea is to present information and let people think about it. People who already like the show can talk about relevant developments.
    • Please don't spam the thread with image macros. You may want to share images or screencaps, but just thumbnail them so it doesn't roll the page out to ridiculous lengths. If you have a lot, just zip them and post a link. Spoilerception works too, if you're clever.
    • For anything of questionable content (suggestive themes, sexy, meme spam, gore, etc.) SPOILER IT so the rest of us don't have to see it right away. Also tell what you expect to spoiler so people don't walk on a landmine. I hope people use their sense and don't post this stuff, but just in case.... Anything really unsavory might be removed by the Forums Staff. Let's just try to avoid this, just in case.
    I really hope I don't need more than that... just be respectful and use common sense guys.

    The Show

    Why? (quoting a SA thread since it summed it up well)
    There's more that I'll post later, and I'll probably be drawing from different places for more information. Please be patient as I work out the OP...

    When season 4 comes out I'll tweak this. In the meantime, check Hub listings for reruns.
    New Saturdays at 10am EST (7am PST) on the Hub. Re-air at 1pm EST (10am PST) on the Hub.

    Other Site Links:
    Here are some handy links to places with either more information or more content!

    Hub MLP Page
    This is where MLP:FiM is officially listed for the channel it's shown on.
    MLP:FiM Wiki
    A wiki of the show. Provides a pretty good archive of characters, episodes, and other related articles.
    A forum that split off of Something Awful for pony discussion.
    A place for pictures, art, and more.
    Equestria Daily
    A news post of MLP related things.

    (lots of editing to come...)
    For now, let's just start off with if you like/dislike the show and why. If you could, explain the why so it isn't a shallow response like "I like it cause magic is awesome!" or "I don't like it cause it's for little girls."

                      I'll go ahead and start with why I like the show.
                      The characters are relatable, the animation is pretty smooth and expressive, and the humor isn't really that childish. The show has a remarkable charm to it that I still have trouble describing, but it's pleasant and a good shift from other more intense or moody topics in TV shows. It's something different and that counts. Girly preconceptions might have been a block before, but sticking to my open-mindedness and giving the show a shot, I found it surprisingly different from what I (and that matter most people) expected out of it. Now I watch new episodes when they come on and share some laughs with people seeing the little references come out or what people do with various screens and text.

                      And to basically sum up how I got into it: Curiosity.

                      I personally can't get past the 5 year old little girl show persona. There may be something deeper with the show but the packaging makes watching the show frivolous.
                    • Jul 1, 2010
                      It won't, as much as I dislike this thread the rules will be enforced.
                    • Mar 12, 2008
                      We should rename ourselves PonyFest, cause that's where this place is going.

                      Added plus? you don't need to change the PF at all, just make the forums pink.

                      No need for people to freak out that ponies are getting around. I simply made a thread for people to talk about it. I know that the people who watch it are in the minority, but that doesn't mean there can't be a place to talk about it, as uneasy as it may be in the presence of so much strife. :sweat:

                      Edit: And yes I know that I probably dropped a few dozen notches on some people's "Cool meters"... Just thought it was about time to make a thread for everyone and get past this topic.
                    • Apr 2, 2011
                      While I question the need of this thread, because... well... http://plaguefest.com/threads/bronies-facts-and-myths.7413/#post-94423
                      Oh those were the days... but this subject seems to be, rather controversial... I mean, before bootcamp the first time I even HEARD of MLP was the admin Fluttershy... and I teased the hell outa him for it...
                      If you haven't noticed my sig. Yes I do watch the show, yes I am "brony". No I don't care what you guys think. I only care what I think. God Forbid someone dislikes what I like... ain't like I have a brother that used the beat the shit outa me for beating him at video games and for watching law and order when I was supposed to be watching spongebob and other cartoons (talk about times changing eh?)

                      Anyways: I love the show... it makes me happy, the characters, the animation (the intro still... God... ugh...), the plot. Makes me happy you know? And after getting fucked from the Army... Happiness has been rough to come by... and I will take everything I can get. It helps me cope I guess... so whatevs you know? I don't hate you for disliking bronies, I don't hate you if you make fun of the show without watching it... I USED TO DO THAT AS WELL!!!! I will laugh with you at shit like this: [IMG] I think it is flat out hilarious! So hey, live and let live... you know? Just sit back and let the river of time take us to the end :smile:

                      EDIT: Oh by the way... This ain't the only shit I watch lol, just to put people's minds at ease...

                        Okay, I guess I'll jump in too then. :grin:

                        I kept hearing about MLP this and MLP that and I was wondering why the fuck people liked something so gay, so I went and watched the first episode. I can't say I SUDDENLY FUCKING LOVED PONIES cause I didn't. It made me laugh a few times so I thought sure, why the fuck not. I watched it till the new episode in one night. Although that's not abnormal for me as I've watched 3 Season anime's within 48 hours, only leaving my room to eat and piss. :/

                        I don't actually have much of a reason for staying with it. I like the show less than I do most other things. I do it more because it's fun to go against the status quo. The only thing I really love about the ponies is the art. I have SO much fucking art from this thing. What these fags are able to pump out is fucking amazing. And with such quality too.

                        So that's how I became a Pony lovin' Pedophile.

                            I don't think you're really helping sell this....
                            Just so people don't get confused, this show isn't about having a pony fetish or liking little girls or whatever. It's about enjoying characters, jokes, and whatever else the show presents. Some people enjoy it more than others and might have different interests for their own reasons. We're not a bunch of fucked up creepers, as some have referred to the fanbase before.

                            For example, I'm just another guy who goes to college, tries to make a living, and watches other "manlier" shows like Survivorman. But I also have a pretty open appreciation for random shows, one of which being MLP:FiM. Nothing big going on there.
