I hate the BBS. It's just an i without the dot. My finger slipped.


In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

One of those few shows that leaves the age game out of it and allows the entire family to just be able to sit back and enjoy a show like this. As for fans and non-fans, as long as the fans aren't forcing it down others throats I see no reason for those to be bothered. The ones that actually do try to cram it down everyone else's throats probably need to back off a bit and let the person decide themself if they wish to watch it or not. Kind of like letting the person themself decide if they wished to be called a brony or not.

However the Internet turned it into a meme, there is no doubting this whatsoever, but there are still fans of the show who truly do appreciate the show for what its worth. It's starting to create more than what it is and that's where I believe things start getting awkward.

I enjoy the show for the art and what it is anyways. As for memes spawned or put into it I do not care as much, although I did find this to be kind of funny.

The reason being is there has been an influx of fan fiction and fan art. Now I have nothing against fan art, hell some of the most creative pieces of work can come from fan art and at times they can turn out really cool. However fan fiction takes a different route in my personal opinion, but if people like it then that's okay by me.

Almost every show has fan art and fan fiction. Do have to say though, some of the fan fiction for the show is weird.

What I find strange though is that the show itself is harmless, but this Internet fanbase is creating a life of its own and that seems to be to be a bit creepy. I might be over exaggerating though, but when I see and hear people talk about buying the dolls and things to put on their desks and collecting them that's when I gotta ask where this Internet fanbase stands at the moment.

Harmless yes, but I find it funny and stupid others will flame it for no real reason other than someone having it in their sig or referring to it. Nothing wrong with buying merchandise for a show really.

If this show dies down and the fad appeal wears off, who will forget about it and move on to the next fad and who will stay and still be a fan of the show?

People will likely still watch it at least until something more interesting comes along although they may go back and watch it from time to time to reflect on the good times they had watching it.

I'll be honest when I did watch some episodes of generation one as a kid, Tirek was scary to me, no idea why. Maybe because he was based off some god like creature?

Tirek was the original badass satan pony. Mostly because he was a centaur and flew on a chariot of retro looking versions of Nightmare Moon.

He's the Grandpa of Nightmare Moon?

Tirek was based on demigod thing that was part horse, human, and snake I think.

I would say he is since the winger horses he used for transportation look like darker versions of her.

have any of you actually seen the retro My Little Pony cartoons, the older generations?

I remember my sisters used to have a video with a few episodes on it
Trust me, when you've seen the old cartoon and then compare it to the new one,
the increase in quality is MASSIVE.

I would recommened that you go back and watch the old series just for reference.
First of the art style is not attractive at all, bright but not in the crisp way the new series is; very muddied and it doesn't look clear.
The voice acting is pretty low standard, dialogue typical shit,
and the stories were...

well, they were actually half-decent.
Completely and utterly surreal - in fact, very trippy.
There was one episode where all their furniture came to life and attacked them,
and another one when they went into underground caves and were captured by diamond goblins.

Very strange.

i have acutally tried to watch the old generations of my little pony... here are my thoughts.

at first, i just saw the into song of the first genaration. it was god awful and didn't bother with the rest.

then when Friendship is Magic got popular i decided to check the old generations again... THEY SUCK. really badly. voice acting is abyssmal, animation is half assed, story is pathetic. i must say that after you see the shit of what used to be my little pony. you are amazed of how the will and ambition of a single woman changed it into the artistic masterpiece as we know it today. (yes that's right, artisitic masterpiece, no less)

Pretty agreeable statement. Also back in the 80s while there were some great cartoons that lasted for ages there were others that either scared the shit out of you or made you think the creators were tripping on acid when they made that show. First generation of My Little Pony kind of makes me think they were tripping on acid when they chose voice actors and made the Tirek....

Angel the bunny. Ironic how Fluttershy gave him a girl's name I think. Then again maybe its acceptable in some places to give a guy or girl a name of the opposite sex.

also only pony sig that no one will notice is a pony sig without watching a few episodes

Would be cool if Discord the pony was a reference to Tirek though.

I think some guy named BeanyOne has all of the episodes of "My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic" on file. There was also a profile by the name of MASTERLINKX and it had most of the episodes but unfortunately it has been taken down. I should have realized that you can never get away with all the episodes on YouTube eventually. If you jsut Google it, you should be able to find other websites with the stuff.
