No wonder kids aren't all right when they watch shows like that. Back in the good old times when everything was better we watched Rölli.

"Philippians" already has a horse reference in it.

Look at that, the patron saint of Bronies. St Philip would approve. It's practically biblical.  :P

I love it that he's drinking Jack Daniels. Totally appropriate for a childrens program.

Yes, that is a flaw. In an Orthodox country he would drink vodka.

From the Second Book of Humans, Chapter 10:

Then Orthonorm gathered all the people and said to them, “CelticFan served the Princesses a little; Orthonorm will serve them at least 20% more. Now, summon all the prophets of Celestia, all her unicorns and all her pegasi; let no one be missing, for I have a great cupcake for Celestia; whoever is missing shall not live.”

But Orthonorm did it in cunning, so that he might destroy the worshipers of Celestia. And Orthonorm said, “Prepare a build-your-own-buffet for Celestia.” And they proclaimed it. Then Orthonorm sent throughout the West Coast and all the worshipers of Celestia came, so that there was not a brony left who did not come. And when they went into the Toys-R-Us, the Toys-R-Us was filled from one end to the other.

He said to the one who was in charge of the wardrobe, “Bring out cosplay outfits for all the worshipers of Celestia.” So he brought out tacky ebay buys for them. Orthonorm went into the Toys-R-Us with Jeremy the son of Dzheremi; and he said to the worshipers of Celestia, “Search and see that there is here with you none of the servants of the LORD, but only the worshipers of Celestia.”

Then they went in to offer sweaty hugs and custom miniatures.

Now Orthonorm had stationed for himself eighty professional athletes outside, and he had said, “The one who permits any of the 'men' whom I bring into your hands to escape shall give up his life in exchange.”

Then it came about, as soon as he had finished offering the cupcake, that Orthonorm said to the professional athletes and disgruntled Toys-R-Us manager, “Go in, bro them; let none come out.” And they bro'd them with the cans of Axe; and the professional athletes threw them out, and went to the girl's isle of Toys-R-Us. They brought out the sacred plushies of Celestia and burned them. They also desecrated the Sister of Celestia and her student, and made them a latrine to this day.

Thus Orthonorm eradicated Ponies...

Because of all the hype I tried watching an episode now. I lasted a total of 2mins. Still better than Pokemon though.

What episode did you watch? I'd recommend the first episode of season 2. http://youtu.be/Uk6mI2QQsyg

At 2 minutes you didn't even get past the cold open. I can't count that as an attempt, sorry. To the moon with you.  :police:

I watched 4 minutes of this (until just after the popcorn started popping or whatever), then I had to turn it off. I'm not going to say what I thought of it, because I don't want to be responsible for any pony-rage. Suffice it to say it would also violate the age old dictum of not saying anything at all if you don't have anything nice to say.

Hmm. The color scheme is soft and calming. It reminds me of those pastel-colored M&Ms they have for sale around Easter every year. There. That'll do.

Atleast you gave it a shot. I respect you for so, it is not in everyone's taste. :)

P.S. I really hope you didn't watch the Norwegian version. It isn't that good (voice acting), the voice acting in the American version is the best in every brony's opinion.

Yikes. Severed Pegasus wings is traumatic enough.

But yeah, kudos to those who at least give it a shot and form an educated opinion. (I would suggest sitting through a whole episode though.)

Oh yes. The intro is bad. There are a few girly-but-still-good episodes, but the intro is the most eyeroll-inducing part of the show. Pretty much everyone gags the first time they see it. Just ignore it.

Awesome! I do enjoy that episode as well. "Nightmare Moon" (aka Luna) is one of my favourites. Once you get in a few episodes, you'll notice the pony "Derpy", she is the fan favourite background character. lol

That's great! If you think S1E1+2 are good, just wait. As the crew got more episodes under their belt, they continue getting better and better (both in plot and in production quality). You'll have fun as you move deeper into the season.

You were right, that episode was less painful, I could watch for longer this time. But still not for me. Again, much better than Pokemon though.
