Unless the search has failed me once again, I don't think there's a thread for this yet.

Friendship is Magic is the newest series based on the My Little Pony franchise. The series is meant for girls aged 3 to 8 or something like that, but unless you've been living under a proverbial rock in the internet over the past couple of months, it's a success in other age groups. That's because it's awesome and no one should be ashamed to watch it and yes, you should take this thread and me seriously.
Anypony else on here watch it?

The first episode of the second season aired just a couple of days ago, so for those who haven't watched the show before, you have 27 episodes of 22-minute long awesomeness to look forward to, in glorious 1080p on Youtube.

For some reason, this has become some sort of super meme on NationStates, I believe their Pony thread has reached over 30,000 replies, and that's not even counting all the roleplays.

So I eagerly await its take over of GDC.

Most of the memes suck. The show is much better. And the first two episodes are kind of lame, I prefer the one-episode "adventures" over the two-part things.

My avatar and my face when I saw this thread are quite similar.

I've been watching this show for a while now and I absolutely love it. I don't obsess over it and refer to myself as a pony/brony or whatever, but I like cartoons and it's a really great cartoon. My favorite ponies are Dash and Pinkie.

The second season is off to a good start, the first part of the episode was pretty decent. I don't think we'll start to see a change in work due to Lauren (the girl who made the show basically) leaving yet because she worked on the two-part season opener. I don't think she left completely but just stepped down from all the input she had. But yeah, the second season is pretty exciting so far. Second part is pretty predictable but still should be fun to watch. Discord is bad ass.

I don't do the whole brony thing either, I just watch the show (and am amused by the whole everyone in the show always saying "Is anypony here?" "Everypony ready to go!").
Pretty much every episode is predictable, but it's still fun.

Yeah, even though the show is predictable and the morals are pretty generic, the writing and animation is really really good. So much fun to watch. Also it's cool how in this ad they played on the Hub they mention "bronies".

Haha, that's cool. I also like how they occasionally pop an "adult" joke in, something the small kids won't recognize but is kind of funny to the older people. The only one I can think of now is when Applejack says something like "When I was still a little Appletini...", but they put things like that in there quite often.

I was never interested in My Little Pony. When I saw a small clip of this show, I thought it all looked weird :lol: Maybe I should start watching this series. Or not.

Well you've pretty much summed up all options. You could watch it. Or not.

But honestly, a lot of people say prior to watching it that they'd never get into it, but change their minds after watching it. Probably all of the fans of the show are not fans of My Little Pony in general. If you like cartoons then you should definitely check it out.

I saw the first episode because I wanted to know why so many people seem to love having a pony as their avatar. Well, I didn't find out, but I didn't think the show was bad. Not bad at all. The jokes were tolerable and I didn't feel like my penis was morphing into a vagina, and I didn't feel like sprouting wings and frolicking through a meadow. The music is pretty cool too. I'm talking about the background music, though. The show's theme song doesn't appeal to me probably because I'm a heterosexual male. Twilight Sparkle was the character I liked the most, and probably the only one I cared about. well, whatever

What's a brony?

I haven't watched this, and I'm not interested to be honest :lol:

I love ponies though, and I have tons of My little ponies that my friends get me every year :happy:

I was so into MLP back when I was a youngster, but I can't really get into this show. It's cute, but I'll never understand the popularity.

My friend is a crazy brony. I, myself, do enjoy the show. I've only watched the first five episodes, but as far as my brony friend knows, I've seen the entire season :p
She even took the time to shampoo and style her Fluttershy toy.

In addition to this, make sure to watch the original (American) version, not the Dutch version. It's stupid in Dutch. Aired on two channels every morning, and stupid every morning :p

In Dutch the little ponies (Applebloom, Scootaloo etc) have more mature voices than the main six, and Pinkie Pie has the most annoying voice you can possibly imagine xD

I watched this for the first time yesterday. It was the new episode yesterday, and I didn't think it was too bad. There were some things that I found myself laughing at. I would say that I like Spike, the little dragon, and Rainbow Dash best. I'll probably try and watch it again sometime soon.

I've been meaning to watch this show to see if it's worth all of the hype.

Judging by the clips posted here, I've been missing out. :runaround: I'm watching it as soon as I get home tomorrow.

It's very well done, imo. Fits the song and all that. I'm not a massive fan of the pmv's, but I saw a Green Day thing and just had to check it out :lol:
