Trust me you have yet to do anything gayer than what these "guys" are going on about. Oh, I could write a book about this stuff.

And I have yet to watch a single "episode".

Coming from the guy who dresses like a, well I'll just say "happy person", on the pictures you posted here. Gayer than a $2 bill.  ;)

How can you hate on something you haven't seen?
it's "queerer than a $3 bill".

Enough of this rubbish. Any favorite clips or pics?

I enjoy this song because it reminds me of Warner Brothers cartoons. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLbdibRyt0k

That's the response of everyone responsible for verbal-war crimes. Sometimes we have to go past saying we're simply replying to people. Sometimes we have to say: "No! The line will be drawn HERE! This far, and no further!"

The Venture Brothers is the most manliest of man shows a man can watch. It comes on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim and is worth watching and rewatching.

Ah, Adult Swim. That time when you're just watching some kid-friendly cartoons, and all of the sudden, after the commercial, you're freaking out and you wonder whether you accidentally changed the channel.  ;D

Dragon Ball Z and Venture Brothers are two of the most manly shows ever. I recommend you google Venture Brothers, it's so good. It is a giant Adult parody of many different shows, Johnny Quest amoung many others.

Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, and Dragon Ball GT is the most popular anime series in the world I believe, it is a show about fighting, it's pretty much people beating the crap out of eachother.

I finished watching season 2. I haven't binged on a TV show like this since I discovered "24" and had four seasons to catch up on.

It was great. Entertaining and enjoyable. The animation is good, the best Flash animation I've ever seen. Looking forward to season 3 this fall.

I'm surprised by the number of mental breakdowns the characters suffer in this show. All the episodes are blending together now, but at one point I fully expected the two girls from The Shining to appear.

^ That's Doctor Who? I would have guessed Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey...


There's been some undeniable influence on the current series. Of course, to be fair, the good Doctor originated the "time travel in a tiny booth" thing.

And Time Turner (the David Tennant looking pony, or Doctor Whooves as the fans call him) is badly in need of some fleshing out and limelight.

True, and I'm actually a fan of DBZ, but it's kind of hard to argue that it's "manly" and doesn't lend itself to a lot of homoeroticism (Something the creators seemed to be aware of. Note the Village People-inspired one-off character in the last episode of the Buu Saga).

"When I took the job, I braced myself for criticism, expecting many people — without even watching the show — to instantly label it girly, stupid, cheap, for babies or an evil corporate commercial. I encourage skeptics like this to watch My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic with an open mind. If I'm doing my job right, I think you'll be surprised."

—Lauren Faust

One of the biggest reasons that I'm proud to be a brony is that it's just so delightfully unlikely... and needed. This summer I've really been discovering just how much simple joy animation gives me and just how much I wanted to go into it when I was young. Though I doubt I ever had the talent necessary to overcome some early discouragement- I still think that animation is, has been, and can be a true form of art (and as such a gift from God to be used to His glory).

Lauren Faust and the rest of the crew achieved something seemingly impossible. They took one of the least taken seriously franchises ever, something that could have easily spawned yet another in a sea of "evil corporate commercials" and they made it something witty, genuinely endearing, and (most impressively) actually watchable for someone over the age of ten. Animation aimed at girls is something that for years has been in dire need of depth and quality. I'm not entirely sure why this is so while at the same time there have been many quality shows aimed at the boys, but whatever the reason, I consider it very important to support a show with even a tiny glimmer of hope of fighting back the tide of vapidity.

I'm not saying that FiM is the second coming of Chuck Jones. I recognize that it has it's flaws and moments of weak writing, but it's sure as heck better than a lot of things out there and most importantly it's a step in the right direction. It's a step back towards art. And in a field already glutted with crap for both genders, it's an very important thing.

Btw, this is an excellent example of rack focus, something that's kind of hard to pull off, I'm told.

Outside of that, what else about it is gay? lol

The Pony mod is amazing, especially with Pony dragons.
