I don't know it I'm hooked or not, but they have attacked my userpage for sure... Why has this show skyrocket'd in popularity? I have the feeling I really want to watch it, but I'm not too sure yet.. So is MLP really as hyped up as people say it is?

Discuss.

I watched the first episode of it. It's okay, and if you're into ponies, I guess it's a good watch. But it's ponies, so I don't like it.

It's okay, but at the end of the day it really is just a television show, and people obsessing over it isn't exactly anything other then cause for pity. So there you go, I pity you for having to define yourself (even if it just is at the moment) with a television show.

I can't really describe why this show gained so much fame, because the "bronies" have different reasons behind it.

I think there's three main reactions to watching MLP:FiM.

First, full blown addiction. This is pretty much the bronies. Once you've watched your 4th episode, the likelihood of you joining this category skyrockets, and you may well be hooked in 10 seconds flat.

Second, mild disinterest. You watch it. It's not bad, but you don't see what the fuss is about, and carry on with your everyday life unchanged.

Finally, hatred. This is generally for people who have so absorbed media messages that they do not understand how an audience outside of a show's target demographic, especially one so different, can like the show, and actively go out of their way to troll and attack people in the first category.

It's a god damn kids show. If you like morals about sharing and eating vegetables then watch the damn thing. Personally I grew out of that when I was 6. Why this show is held higher than any other is beyond me, you can just as easily rip an image from any other kids show and exploit it in threads.

You know what? I love My Little Pony. At first I found the merchandising for the product line beyond annoying, but after I heard about older guys getting into the show, that's when I suspected that the same could happen to me. And so recently, out of curiosity, I checked out an episode on youtube... I've been hooked ever since.

It's really not as bad as one would think - in fact, I bet it's a lot better than what most people's initial thoughts would hold it to. I actually find it very enjoyable to watch and I'd recommend folks to at least give it at least few episodes to see for themselves. Just to give you an idea, Lauren Faust, the creator of the show, is married to Craig McCracken and worked on some of the cartoons he produced like Power Puff Girls.

If you like it, great! If you don't enjoy it, that's just as well.

I love the show, verry much.

However, i have allowed the fetish to get in the way of the show itself, and have since then not watched it, as i can only see them doing sexual things

im so FUCKING weird :(

I think it's quite entertaining, but I dunno why. I watched the first season once on yt. And I'm not really interested in watching it more.

kids who frequent 4chan latch on to the next thing in an attempt to fill the huge void that is their personality

its ok though cause the type of people who identify as "bronies" are also the ones who are obese, self-diagnosed aspies, and are never seen outdoors
