    I need to catch up on the Season 2 episodes, though. Studying for final exams had me distracted for the past few weeks. :bag:

    This has to be the strangest trend I've seen happening for a while.
    Even as a kid I found the cartoon lame.

    Woah man, chill out. I knew I'd get some odd reactions but no need to freak. I intended this to be a semi-hilarious/fan thread. Don't hate.

    What do you find appealing about it?
    You're not alone and I don't get it at all.

    Dat plot, man. But seriously, it's just amazing in every way. They use internet/pop culture references very cleverly and it's got some good 'ole 'breaking the 4th wall' in it. And, I just find it enjoyable. Surprisingly, it was made to be for little girls (although there was a Big Lebowski reference in one of the episodes, so I guess not), but the fanbase is mostly made up of teenage/young aged males.

    agreed, haters gonna hate. I think he needs to be targeted by the orbital friendship cannon.

    exactly, admittedly I can't stand the musical numbers in it - but it's actually a surprisingly refreshing show. The characters are very "animated", not just in the sense that they are literally animated but also in the sense that they project their emotions physically and facially very well, which actually creates a show that kindof grabs you. It's also very fun identifying the various "doctor who's" that are placed in the background in episodes as well as Derpy hooves and a number of other background characters/pop culture references. It's a show for little girls, yes, but it also recognizes that there are likely to be older viewers (perhaps parents/babysitters) and likes to throw them a bone - as opposed to most of the modern sitcoms and dramas and cop shows that are intended for adults but treat them like children.

    Do I really give a crap if somebody doesn't watch the show? No, it's just a television show - one for little girls at that - it's something I check out on my spare time.

    The old cartoon was lame. But like TheEndIsNYE described, when you revamp the show and add good writing and likeable characters, it becomes something really enjoyable.

    Yeah, anything that's not "Friendship is Magic" sucks. They were all so terrifying looking back then... ugh

    Welcome to the club, bro.

    I actually like some of the musical numbers, and the others I don't really mind. Anyways, we love and tolerate haters very much.
