Very interesting read. Lauren Faust seems like such a great person. It's a shame she's stepping down from the show, but I have faith that it'll still be amazing. There seems to be plenty of talent working on the show and I don't see how they could mess it up. Reading that article though makes me proud to be a brony.

Best of luck with that.

Thanks man.

She'd have to be amazing! How else could shows like Powerpuff Girls, Foster's Home, and FiM have come into being?

I was kind of skeptical when I heard that she wouldn't be returning for season 2. I was also pretty bummed out. But after seeing the trailers, it looks like it's going to be a sweet ride.

Question: Why do you people have to call yourselves 'Bronies'? Why can't you just call yourselves fans of the show?

It sounds mondo cool is why. And brony is a simple yet brilliant portmanteau.


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.

While this is true not everyone calls themself a brony. I don't call myself one mostly because I prefer not being called one in the first place.

ThatGuyWithTheGlasses could be a brony.

Watch the whole thing, or just fast forward towards the end.

Wrong link or just a lame attempt at trick rolling?

Speaking of TGWTG, he should make an Old VS New video comparing the older series with Friendship is Magic.

Your question slightly confuses me, why call a rose a rose when it would smell just as sweet by any other name? Simply put, the group needed a unifying term to band itself together.

Some people like a portmanteau literary device, especially since it's describing what appears to an anomaly. My theory is that the termed was birthed out of necessity to differentiate the "brony" fanbase from the intended children's fanbase.

I don't really go and say that I'm a brony to anyone else other than other bronies.

You really hit the nail on the head with this one. When i saw the question, i was trying to think of a way to articulate it, but you did that for me. Thanks a ton.

This too. I think my girlfriend is the only person irl that knows i am a brony. Oh wait... one of my roommates knows too. I don't advertise it though.


Thank you Ryan for the AWESOME sig!

I'm surprised I have yet to see anything in TV Guide about this show. You would think it would be all over the kid's section, not that I really look there. Heck, given its popuarlity on the Internet, I wouldn't be surprised if they made a whole article about it. A pity my TV doesn't seem to have "Hub" or I would watch it on TV in a second. I used to think the people didn't care that the episodes were on YouTube, but they're all gone now.

Might wake up early to watch the new episode tomorrow morning. Like anyone else watching the show, I just hope no one posts spoilers until the weekend is over just to be fair to others waiting to watch it.

I wouldnt be surpised if it were all the pony haters too gather together and actually watch the first episode of the second season just so they could spoil it for us

Hey, if you enjoy something then enjoy it, shouldn't be anyone telling you you can't like a show.

Losing respect for someone just because of a show they like to watch? That seems a bit childish to me if you ask.

"Yeah, well...watching a show for little girls is pretty childish too!"

Now that that's out of the way, holy fuck I can't believe Season two starts in about ten hours!

Also I liked that interview with Lauren Faust.

More like it's losing respect for him because he's just hopping on a lame bandwagon like everyone. He was a lot better than this.

Why do you just assume everybody who watches the show is just riding a bandwagon? Yeah there are people who do I'm not denying that, but if you see Doug's other videos and listen to his opinions and thoughts it shows that he is not the kind of guy who jumps on bandwagons just for the hell of it.
