To me, it's like watching the same thing over and over again. The plot lines in the episodes that I have seen have been done to death like "I am being embarrassed by my quirky relatives behavior only to finding out that they are actually pretty cool" or "pretending I'm not to be friends with my friend in order to be with the popular/sophisticated people only to realize that my real friends are more important." Other shows manage to make these plot line interesting with humor, drama, or creativity, but for me, I have trouble seeing any of these qualities in MLP and instead feel that it boils down the over used stories to their basic elements, which is perfect for small children but dull for me. I don't think it's a bad show, but I don't see why it's so special either.
I like the show, used to be part of the fandom, grew out of that real quickly. I'm trying to get back in, but keep failing to get into it like I did in the season one days. I still watch the show, but that is it.
Lol glad to see a brony who doesn't freak out at everybody who has a different opinion!
I think the show is cute, the designs are pretty nice and while the pacing and boarding past season 1 is a little less impressive imo, it's one of the fairly decent cartoons on television right now (I don't get The Hub, but I've seen it online). I also think the style's really fun to draw in, so I can see why people like doing drawings of the characters and Ponyfying everything, hahah.
The fandom sours it a bit for me though just because it's so overbearing and extreme sometimes. I'm sure there are plenty of sane fans though too, several of my friends are. The ones who take it too seriously are a little scary, lol.
I get a 90's vibe from it, and having watched late 80's early to mid 90's cartoons growing up (including G1 MLP) its got a bit of a nostalgia factor to it. Other then that I think it's just a neat show. The animation is crisp, the characters are enjoyable, and the overall story is fun if a little simplistic at times.
Truth be told i'm more into the fandom. This fandom churns out more art per-capita then I thought possible.
I really enjoy the show. Its different form the rest as I havent watched a kids show in around 10 years. The animation is great. The style is perfect. And the show ideas are rather interesting (in a good way)
Plus, what really got me hooked on the show is the fan art, which is beyond amazing! the dedication and time put into fan fics, songs, movies, anything... Is just amazing. Theres a lot of talented people out there that follow this fandom. Besides, I cant tell you how many fan created songs I have on my iPhone
Ehh... kinda yes... and kinda no. Where should I begin?
Pros: 1. The animation style is pretty nice. It's colorful, unique, and pleasing to the eye. 2. The character designs are also interesting. A lot of these designs I find cute, lol. 3. Interesting villains. Not awesome, but interesting in terms of personality and character design.
Cons: 1. It's overrated, sorry to say. I don't mind if you like it at all. It's just that sometimes it gets kind of out of hand. It's not a bad show, but it's definitely not the best cartoon to ever come out in this decade. I enjoy the fan art if it's well done, but that's pretty much it.
2. IDK... Aside from the villains, the personalities in my opinion have been done to death in these types of shows. Most of their personalities seem kinda predictable at times, like you know they're going to do this, and that.
3. The memes are overused and aren't really that funny. Except for the Eeyup one. That never gets old, lol.
I like some children's movies and series but I'm not interested in MLP. And I think the ponies looked cuter before I watched MLP when I was a child in 90s. But I understand if people like the new ponies too
