I am currently watching that "Dragonshy" episode, and it's actually not too bad so far, you know, for a show about ponies.

it is one of the best episodes for new people to watch, it has good character showing for all of the mane cast as well as a lot of humor and quite a bit of action to. It deffinently shows the more fun side of the show which is good to make people see when they question if they are going to enjoy it or not, if that episode doesn't attract the viewer then I don't think any will.

Umm, could you tell me the time when the actions starts? Lol, I'm at around the 8 minute mark, I mean it's good now, but I'd like to see some action, all it is right now is one of the ponies being scared.

Also, my favorite part so far...

Fluttershy is adorable.

I just watched this episode a few days ago. It is one of my favorites... Especially because Fluttershy is my favorite. You will definitely like the ending to the episode.


Thank you Ryan for the AWESOME sig!

I respect bronies even though I am not one.

I saw one episode of MLP to see what it was all about. It was alright, but a little boring. Other than that, I don't really see the problem with liking a show that promotes positive virtues that most people like. I guess people just don't like how those positive virtues are promoted...

I don't even know why so many people dislike bronies so much. If you don't like the show, cool. But I see no reason to criticize others for not sharing your taste in television. I never really understood this mentality that people have where they practically reprimand others for liking things that are even a little unpopular with the masses.

I'm disappointed in anyone who actually gives a fuck about this enough to declare their hatred of bronies and MLP. I never really see bronies shove their love of MLP down people's throats. They just passively mention it and move on. But no, some people here must bring it up often as if they are compelled to do so. No one's forcing them to watch MLP, and the bronies don't really seem to give a fuck if people don't like the show.

Why can't some of you guys who hate MLP at least give respect to bronies? :/

As I continue watching this "Fluttershy" episode, there are some things that annoy me.

1) The rainbow pony, I don't know what her name is, I've heard one of the ponies names is "Rainbow Dash" or something like that so I'm guessing that's her name, is a bitch. She keeps acting like a real bitch to this "Fluttershy" pony, and she just seems kind of annoying.

"Ugh, we have to go AROUND the mountain???"
and
"I told you she'd hold us back."

And in general she's just not likeable, at least so far.

2) The pink pony, (will be shown in screenshot below) who's name I don't know, not only is her voice slightly annoying, but mainly because there was no reason for this "song" I mean I know she was trying to encourage her but still.

I know I'm nitpicking, but there it is, after this, I'll continue watching it, although I don't plan on become a full-fledged "brony." Speaking of bronies, this is a question for Ragnarokia (I hope I'm spelling your username right), why is July 15th "Brony Day"? That is all.

Better watch out... carebears might be the next meme.

Not a big MLP fan. For a site that kills celebrities and trashes on everyone, why would we embrace the ponies? That's like embracing barney... he teaches love and togetherness and tolerance, but we all still think he sucks.

To be honest, most people just watch to seem edgy or original since it's a girly show. It's like being a hipster but 1'000'000'000 times worse.

Rainbow Dash is the element of Loyalty, she is very arrogant especially compared to Fluttershy this early in the series, however they both like each other but Rainbow Dash just sees herself as the best and thinks Fluttershy is useless for this adventure since she is to shy.
One of the best things about the characters is how they change and interact with each other, Rainbow Dash is like this to begin with but soon becomes very nice to Fluttershy.

2) The pink pony, (will be shown in screenshot below) who's name I don't know, not only is her voice slightly annoying, but mainly because there was no reason for this "song" I mean I know she was trying to encourage her but still.

Pinkie Pie, she is always commented on being random, she is the element of laughter and enjoys making people laugh and generally makes no sense, you are meant to just enjoy what she does rather than try and make sense for it.

I know I'm nitpicking, but there it is, after this, I'll continue watching it, although I don't plan on become a full-fledged "brony." Speaking of bronies, this is a question for Ragnarokia (I hope I'm spelling your username right), why is July 15th "Brony Day"? That is all.

It was decided on twitter from HUB I think it was, to celebrate the fanbase.

At first you might not be able to like Rainbow Dash, but being the element of loyalty she will always stay by her friends no matter how she originally acts, especially since she has a background with Fluttershy.

Alright I just finished watching the "Fluttershy" episode, and this is my recap/review sort of thing. As Ragnarokia had said, I really enjoyed the ending. It was funny, but I have one complaint, WHAT KIND OF ACTION WAS THAT!?! I mean is this (picture below) the definition of action in this show, I mean, it was fucking hilarious but still. I have to be honest I was a little bored during the part where they just climbed up the mountain, but the ending redeemed itself. Although, I didn't really like the FINAL scene in this episode because it felt a little forced, a joke that has been overused quite often. What I mean is, the like "I'm not afraid of anything!" that someone says, and then something really non-frightening scares them. Although, I won't lie, while the credits rolled, I had a smile on my face. Actually, not bad. I'm going to check out some more episodes. So, I guess I'll join this "crew", I'm not sure if it's considered a crew, but it should be. So, overall, if you can get over the fact that it's about ponies, and not prejudice against it just because it seems "girly" it's actually pretty good.

Which episode should I watch next?

Bridle Gossip is another good one for new people to watch.
Sonic Rainboom is my favourite episode and is very good, it focuses on Rainbow Dash and really makes her loveable, you might want to watch a few before this though to really get a feeling for what Rainbow Dash is like first though. But you are sure to love this. It has the same problem with Dragonshy in the way it gives a negative view of Rarity like Dragonshy did with Rainbow Dash, but since you have seen another with Rarity already it shouldnt be to bad.

I would recommend Bridle Gossip, then either Sonic Rainboom or Fall Weather Friends.

I starting watching the "Bridle Gossip" episode, and about a minute and a half in I noticed a character that looked incredibly familiar. Is it just me that made this connection? I don't know maybe it was on purpose, I'm going to continue watching the episode after I finish posting this.

Not sure, this episode is majorly about racism as the main theme which is a bit of a stereotypical choice yes, but its great how they get it across and the episode is very funny etc.

Oh and I forgot to mention when I said fall weather friends, that episode is mostly applejack and rainbow dash and is all about how those two see each other and their personality etc, its very enjoyable as an episode and gets across their characters well while also being very entertaining, so would recommend that one also.

If after viewing these you do feel like you like the sow as a whole from what you have seen so far, then I would suggest going through them in order of course missing the ones you have done already and you should find them fun, its just that Dragonshy Bridle Gossip Fall Weather Friends and some others are very good for starting off on.

Also got annoying thing to do tomorow so got to head of now, but enjoy your viewing and hope you become a brony with us if you do love it, if not at least you liked an episode :)

My worry is just that re doing it might be seen as spamming him hehe :(
I never really had anything to PM him about other than some random spam account things so wouldnt know if he does or not, but guessing he problably gets hundreds of PMs all the time about random stuff so might over look it.

I PM'ed Malachy about permission to make a Club or Crew for MLP and his response was this...

"You can post in the cartoon club if you really want but keep in mind that mindless pic spamming will continue to result in forum bans (ask Ryan how that's working for him)... you might wanna tell your friends not to send the same mod the exact same PM somebody else sent a week or two ago if you all plan on sending me a PM. Sorry, but it seems too many dumbasses pic spamming has made such a thread impossible in C&C as it would only result in wasting a whole lot of mods' time trying to take care of it (and of course we already have multiple omnibus TV or cartoon threads that will happily take your non spam replies."

So we should either post in the Cartoon Club or here.

I don't really understand why this fandom is so good. A few months back, i didn't care. Now look at me. I have fluttershy in my sig.

It has many good prospects to it like animation, voices, plot but it's for little girls and yet we are all watching with excited faces? This fandom probably has to be the most debated topic in 2011. I'm sure it has started wars all over the place. Already i have seen SO MUCH flaming on this discussion of mlp in the general forum.

I honestly can't figure out why this is so unique. But we should all at least enjoy it for as long as we can because we don't know how good season 2 will be. Will it keep the fans or will it be crushed?

MLP is also an example of a "good" cartoon. I havn't watched anything decent for a LOOONNGG time since toonami was eliminated. It makes me feel like a kid again.

A blog doesn't really leave a lot of space for elaborating posts. In cartoon club people might get annoyed by ponies too eventually.

What might help is for bronies to move to community websites and keeping them off NG (although it's a bit unfair as other games/ TV and other items do get their own spot)

As I've always mentioned, NG is relativly picture-spam pony free unless some hater or troll comes along creating a hate thread. (not considering sigs or blogs, but they have total freedom)

Also, I hope people don't take statements on homosexuality too serious, cause you're not just insulting 'bronies' but also gays, seeing how you stereotype them and play them off as a bad thing.

Similarly, allegations of paedophilia and bestiality are equally as preposterous.

There is no other choice. The only way would be to cut down on the picture spamming and even that is questionable since that rule will be quickly broken and moderators don't feel like wasting time cleaning it up.

You know what I've noticed? Most of the people that identify themselves as bronies have either ponies in their sig, or as their sig. What's up with that? It seems that although the term "brony" is often used lightly, even by the community, it means a lot more to many people in their subconscious mind. There are few bronies that have anything else is their sig other than ponies. Does this mean average people lost interest in all of their other hobbies, or did the pony phenomena just take priority?

Now, I will make a conclusion in which you may agree or may not agree. By becoming a brony, that becomes the single most important part of your entertainment life. You subconsciously prefer things with ponies in them than to things without. Because of this, when you have a choice of whether or not to add ponies into something, you gravitate to adding ponies because your subconscious is telling you so.

This is a form of addiction. It's like a hard drug that not many people that try it like it, but when they like it, the hammer comes down heavy. It's time for rehabilitation, guys, and the only way to cure this addiction, is to force yourself to be entertained by things that do not have ponies in them. I know it might be tough, because you've relied on ponies for laughs for so long, but you need to stop before it kills a part of you. You need to stop before you become apathetic to all things without ponies.
