Of course they'd embrace the male following! That's the generation of folks who will likely be having kids sometime soon...and they WILL show it to their own children once they're old enough. :P

The show is popular with young teenage boys and adult males. With the latter of the two, I believe it's moreso because they watch it with their children, and not as a guilty pleasure.

With teenage boys...that's a different story methinks.

Ehh, I'm hooked on the show because, someone suggested it to me saying it was a good show and he's right.
I just love the show. It reminds me of TV broadcasting from my youth.

I quoted this from a different thread, but to me My Little Pony isn't apart of this category above.
The story is entertaining and has a good story behind it, it's one of the few kid shows that actually has a strong, constructive story behind it.
Again, a good story at that.

I agree that there's nothing really good on TV. My Little Pony is a good family show that teaches kids the values of friendship and being a hard worker.

Eeyup. So, since we're on the topic, what you do think about all the fanfiction crossovers out there?
I've read about sixteen stories so far and most are pretty good reads.

I have not yet read a MLP: FiM crossover fan-fic. Crossovers are really hard to do, as most of the best stories for a show come from the show itself without merging it with something else.

Apparently Ponies are evil because they are jealous of us!

Ahem. No, I genuinely believe even the teen boys like it because it's either nostalgic or because they have a younger sibling/relative to watch it with and/or because it's just "the 'in' thing". :P

No one in my family watches the show except me. However, I just like it.
I can't explain myself there, maybe it is the nostalgic feeling of my child-hood shows in me, but regardless... I just love the show.

It's just the characters and story of the show that's got me hooked on it and like I said in an earlier post...

Most show on TV are terrible these days and I tend to watch older shows. (The Original Pokemon, Original DBZ, etc.)
But, My Little Pony: FiM has shown me that not all of today's broadcasting is gone and lost forever.

I said this a while back how I got into the show was just my curiosity getting the better of me. And I liked the show from the beginning.

After watching the pilot, I clicked on the episode "Sonic Rainboom", and that's how I became a Rainbow Dash fan.

I agree with you there, amico! That episode was the same reason I became a Rainbow Dash fan, too.
As like, Pinkie Pie is "Party of One" to Fluttershy is "The Stare Master."

Yeah, I think most people became fans of a particular pony in one of the major, character-building episodes, like the three previously mentioned.

Do you think season two will have even more character building episodes?
By the way, nice fanfiction you're starting. (I read the entry on deviantArt.)

In other news... Rainbow Dash vs. Cleverbot?


Cleverbot loses.

EDIT: Guess what I found on deviantArt! Book Fort!!!


Yes, it's a Dog Fort crossover. I found this comical.

I'd have to disagree with that. xD;
When I was younger, I absolutely despised My Little Pony. Wouldn't even go near them or look at them. When the ads on TV played, I changed the channel straight away until I was sure it was over.

Funnily enough, I'm also the original brony in my group of friends. I also got most of them into the show as well. But yeah, that's just me.

ALSO, BOOK FORT.

Well, I turned the shoulder to MLP, back in the day. I didn't hate it really, I just wasn't a fan. Now...that's changed. :P

This is how I feel about the show in comic form and how I got one of my pals watching ironically.

- Favorite Episode: Ep 26! GREAT. Had me laughing SO HARD.
- Favorite Main Pony: Fluttershy! Basically my persona in pony form!
- Favorite Side Pony: Derpy or Dr. Whooves. I love the tiny references the creators make.
- About Me: I am a beginner YTPMVer. I have a pony folder with over 200 pictures, and I have a few brony friends in real life. I am currently working on an MLP "Rock my emotions" YTPMV. I will give my YT name when it is released. I think the brony community is great, funny, and also I plan on re-dubbing a few of the episodes with my own little twist (Also will be released on my channel, but it will be a surprise) I hope to be put in this club so I can meet some new brony friends. :D Thanks for reading!

People who hate on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic need to be forced to watch the show and convert to the brony religion.

Oh...and welcome to the herd st00f.
